Jaime King’s estranged husband Kyle Newman claims she’s a ‘chronic drug addict and alcoholic’

“To have no control over anything, just wait and on the edge of your seat, it’s breathtaking at this point.” Janette’s fiancée, Michael, is being held on Rikers Island. He is serving his sentence because he was unable to register with his agent, violating his parole for drug possession. Now Michael and hundreds like him are at the center of a public health crisis that experts have been warning of for weeks. “Two months due to the city, it’s not worth someone’s life. You are giving people a life sentence by leaving them there. “TV announcers:” An inmate who tested positive for Covid-19 died yesterday at Bellevue Hospital. “” Rikers is one of the largest correctional facilities in the world and, at present, the rate of infection is seven times that of New York. ” “Is our prison system equipped to deal with an epidemic?” “When the coronavirus infiltrated prisons, officials and public defenders all rushed to remedy the situation.” “We will continue to reduce our prison population.” “We are releasing people who are in prison for violating parole.” When the virus was first identified in New York City, there were 5,400 inmates in city jails. To help prevent the spread of the virus, the Correctional Council recommended the release of 2,000 inmates. on parole, people over the age of 50, people at medical risk and inmates serving short terms, but two weeks later government officials released only half of them. prisons, prisons act as incubators of the virus. ” “Think of prisons as the worst cruise ship in the world.” “If we get a real situation here, and this thing starts to spread, it will spread like wildfire, and New York will have a problem between hands. “Thousands of employees crisscross the city’s prisons every day, forming a human lifeline to the city. The detainees come and go too. ‘It’s not just about who’s in jail right now, it’s really about the city.’ This is Kenneth Albritton. He was detained on Rikers while Covid-19 was spreading around the city. “That’s scary in there, that’s what I would tell you. When I was there, you had guys who made their own masks with their shirts. They didn’t want to breathe the air with the same people who are in the dorm with them. “Kenneth was on parole after serving a second degree manslaughter sentence when he was 18 years old.” I was brought to Rikers Island on February 5 for a curfew violation. For me, read a newspaper and watch the news, and I see they don’t say more than 10 to a group. But you have 50 guys who are in a sleeping area. It’s impossible to tell us to practice social distancing there when they are stacked on top of each other. “After someone in his dormitory tested positive, Kenneth says he was quarantined. But less than 24 hours later, he was released. He was given a MetroCard, but no indication of how to handle the potential spread of Covid-19. “If they would have tested me on my way out, then I would have felt like, OK, they took the appropriate action. When I left the enclosure to go home, they didn’t tell us anything about how to handle the situation. Even if nobody told me anything, I felt that I should quarantine myself. “Little has been taken into account as to what happens to detainees after their release, and once they are back in the communities and at home.” When we asked about the pace of releases, the mayor’s office agreed that it was slow, but said it did not have full control of the process. The state department of corrections said it was working as quickly as possible. “My fiancée who is on Rikers, we had our son in September and about two weeks after that, he discovered that he had an arrest warrant.” “Oh, you have these boogies. I told you that baby likes this camera – Oh my God. “He is a person charged with violence. It’s like a real health disaster. Parole is like the simplest thing they do. Right. Yes, they said about 500 or 700 parolees. I had just read it last night. Yes, that he signed. The epidemic in the city’s prisons is not only a threat to detainees. On March 27, Quinsey Simpson became the first New York City correctional officer to die from Covid-19. “Correctional officers every day, despite damage to themselves and their families, roll over to this island to do this job.” Officer Husamudeen criticizes the city’s response, although he argues for improving the conditions of detention without releasing the detainees. “This is not the answer to solve this problem. They did not serve their sentence. If they served their sentence, they would not be on parole.” But his opposition is in the minority. Although the overall population of Rikers has declined, public defenders, prosecutors and correctional officials agree that releases are not happening quickly enough. “We need to reframe our thinking about public safety now to take into account that the public safety includes preventing the spread of viruses. ” “My brother who is a schoolteacher in New York has contracted the coronavirus. Are you okay? Oh I love you. Oh, you’re afraid? What’s the problem? Oh my God. Don’t get in your head that it’s going to beat you You’re going to beat that. Okay, okay I love you. Okay, I’ll call you in a little while. OK. As a teacher, he had a lot of precautions and thought he was following whatever he was supposed to do, and he got the coronavirus when he entered a school. That’s why I’m so adamant about fighting for Michael to come home. The person standing right next to you may have it and you wouldn’t even know it. “In the city’s prisons, hundreds of inmates and correctional officers have tested positive, and half of all inmates are now under quarantine. “Covid-19 and the pandemic quickly revealed all of the weakest places in our social safety nets. And it is not surprising that one of these reasons is the way in which prisons put people at risk. “I know, my love – it’s just ridiculously scary.”
