The stories are now coming out about how awful it was in some places - as miserable as those of us were in our cold houses, prisoners were stuck in cold drafty buildings with broken windows, not enough blankets, frozen water lines, non-flushing toilets. When you consider that Texas, like almost all states, often imprisons people who can't afford cash bail (before they've even had a trial to determine guilt or innocence) this is the abomination that is the "criminal justice system." It was torture for everyone stuck in those situations.
