Default Judge threatens to lock up Texas prison officials over air conditioning

I know Texas is not the only state with extreme heat issues but I found this and wanted to share.

That's about the only way they'll pull it off, too. TDCJ won't budge on the air conditioning issue unless someone is in threat of being locked up. I'm not surprised that it's come to this.

This makes me glad to know that my husband isn't in a Texas prison. He's federal and in Arkansas and it's been unbelievably hot there. Luckily though the weather there isn't much different than we have here at home. He's told me of actually being cold because they run the air all the time.

Yes, doing fed time is much different and the settings tend to be considerably better, but the amount of time to serve on average is much more in a federal prison.

Newer federal prisons are air conditioned, but the many of the old ones aren't, except maybe in localized areas where the COs work.
