😷When you go to Court, you have to wear a mask - beginning Monday. It’s the best way to keep parties, witnesses, lawyers, and judges safe. Mask Up Tennessee! ... See MoreSee Less
Tarah Watson 615-423-1517 firstname.lastname@example.org Dear Anyone who will listen, I am a concerned citizen, pleading for help with an issue with jail systems in the state of TN. Specifically Core Civic in Nashville TN. It has at least 35 confirmed cases of Covid-19 in one unit. The jail is overcrowded. TDOC isn't accepting any inmates into the Prison from the jail until next year. Now there are inmates waiting to go to prison and inmates just serving jail time. The inmates are given paper one time use masks (when they ask for one) and have to keep it for sometimes weeks. Social Distancing is out of the question. It is a lost cause. I am pleading to anyone who cares or has loved ones in CoreCivic in Nashville TN or any Jail system to join the fight for some inmates to be released early. Inmates who have minor violations or technical parole violations, especially the older inmates(who are more susceptible of getting the virus) should be released early for health concerns. This would help with the overcrowding issue, not to mention it would allow for some form of Social Distancing. Also there is less amount of inmates to guard with such a short staff. I understand you do the crime you do the time. We are in a world wide Pandemic. Many States like California have already started early release in their jails and prisons, as their infected inmates and staff across the state climb to over 8,000. Many inmates are getting the idea of contacting attorneys and filing lawsuits. We need to do something now. The Board of Parole are the only ones with the power to grant early release. Please contact them or anyone else who can make a difference. Sincerely, Tarah Watson
I think it would be prudent for our Supreme Court Justices to spend a day in court with an assistant public defender - for 5-8 hours - under the rules of this Order to get a taste of what they have ordered. I will reluctantly and only under extreme protest (stated protest - no shouting and throwing) obey this Order.
