a Segregation Primer

   DO not believe the DOC when they tell you prisoners have tools to protect themselves for the Virus. Not only do the not have adequate sanitizer, many have little or no soap. The indigent in general population get used soap unwrapped and often filthy.

Those in solitary get little packages of liquid soap. shampoo. toothpaste and lotion. scannings below:
 the photo at left gives  you an idea of the size of the soap packet:

I am requesting More than one tiny bar of state soap. GBCI is taking 100% of my state pay, therefore I can't even afford one bar of soap per month".One tiny bar per week is not enough."

answer:"you should be issued up to three bars of soap bi-weekly. Let me know if this is not happening.
