Episode Description:

Are inmates being tortured at the new Somerset County Jail in Madison? ……….Maybe, depending on your definition of “torture”. Certainly, both inmates and staff feel intimidated from revealing the whole truth. Be prepared to hear testimony from staff, inmates and visitors that you will not like to hear. Your tax dollars could be wasted on a corrections system that is possibly ineffective and perhaps belongs back in the dark ages. Just hope that none of your loved ones ever end up in the Somerset County Correctional Facility.

Just a point of interest: since this program was shown in the Madison/Skowhegan area, I had gotten calls from people connected with the jail and they gave me a heads-up. It seems the folks running the jail are not happy with me and I might expect some form of retaliation. This may seem only a local county issue, but just recently, a number of inmates from Franklin County and from the State Prison in Warren were transferred to Madison. Dalmon Landry was right. Our County Jail is indeed becoming a State Prison and the people of Somerset are paying for it.

I also got calls from recently released inmates who witnessed what happened to Dalmon and others. They say that Dalmon is the one telling the truth. Most people are afraid to go on camera and rightfully so. They fear retaliation.

You can expect that I will be doing a follow-up on the Somerset County Jail, which many believe to be a prison.
