Well, this week here at F.C.I. Dublin we had an outbreak of T.B. They had to place us on lock down while they tested the unit that the girl who had T.B. lived in. Our prison system really needs to look at how the screening system works. A T.B. test takes 3 days. This girl was on the compound for 2 months before she was tested. They only found out because she passed out. We've had lice breakout, strep breakout, and now a T.B. breakout. The federal government is supposed to be so good, but you can't even catch a deadly lung disease? When you go to state you spend 30 days in lockdown while they test you for everything. What happened to keeping inmates safe? What, we made a mistake so who cares if they die of T.B.? Oh, wait, they have a cure so it's not that important.

That's what they told us why they weren't keeping people in lock down for the 3 days and why they weren't testing everyone. The B.O.P. outbreak manual says to only test the roommates and close friends. Really? Only close friends, do they realize that there is only so many places to go inside a prison? That even if I don't hang out with the girl who has T.B. I'm sure I've been in the same building with her for a long period of time. If they don't care about us, they are putting their officers at risk. They spend 6am - 2pm, 2-10pm, 10-6am with us. Just a thought.
