SALINAS Inmates forced to eat on floor I’m writing to inform you of treatment in Monterey County Jail that is a big problem and is inhumane and c ruel. Inmates are people, too, not animals like they’re t reated. For example, an area of the jail known as D- Wing has triple bunks holding 85 or more inmates at a time with only 50 seats so at every meal 30 or more inmates are forced to eat on the floor every day. Which is only cleaned and mopped once a day at 5 a.m. I nmates at the jail are also allowed to buy $125 a w eek in hygiene and food and aren’t offered anywhere t o store such items. No lockers, no containers, no tubs, n othing, so everything you have is kept on the floor, which is dirty with bugs and other stuff. Inmates are p eople, too, and not animals. W ith that being said, when you degrade inmates and show them no respect, how are you able to consider rehabilitation for any of them? Animals are treated b etter than Monterey County inmates. JEFF MCCORMICK, #1501572 D-WING, MONTEREY COUNTY JAIL
