    My husband died as a result of poor medical care while at The Men’s Colony at SLO penetentiary. He was down for violating parole (dirty urine). He needed triple bypass surgery that was refused him because he was “short-time”. He died the day after release in 1986. I was left with 4 children to support on my own. The entire prison system is broken and needs to be razed!
    If I can be of any help to the cause, besides money, I’ll do my best. Please contact me.
