I feel like I have a very unpopular opinion that my least favorite book of the series is Prisoner of Azkaban. I found it to be incredibly boring except for the last few chapters. On the other hand, my favorite is Half-Blood Prince, which seems to be nobody else’s favorite.
The Washington, D.C., jail has big metal doors that slam shut. It looks and feels like a jail. But down a hall in the medical wing, past an inmate muttering about suicide, there’s a room that looks like a normal doctor’s office.
“OK, deep breaths in and out for me,” says Dr. Reggie Egins to his patient, Sean Horn, an inmate in his 40s. They talk about how his weight has changed in his six weeks in jail, how his medications are working out and if he’s noticed anything different about his vision. Egins schedules an ophthalmology appointment for Horn.
Horn says before he arrived here, things were not looking good.
“I looked real bad. I was homeless, for one, and not taking my medicine,” says Horn, who has depression, high blood pressure and gout, among other things.
When he was out on the streets, Horn says, it was hard for him to get his medications or to see a doctor. So he just didn’t. He got sicker and sicker.
“I had two heart attacks and my gout flared up a whole lot of times when I was out there,” he says.
Horn is no outlier. People with a history of incarceration are typically much sicker than the general population, especially returning inmates like Horn. Studies done primarily in Ohio and Texas have found that more than 8 in 10 returning prisoners have a chronic medical condition, from addiction to asthma. Egins says a lot of it has gone untreated, for a range of reasons — because the health care system is tough to navigate, because they’re homeless and don’t have insurance, or because they don’t trust doctors.
The ultimate #tyranny in a society is not control by #MartialLaw. It is control by the #psychological manipulation of #consciousness through which #reality is defined. So that those who exist within it do not even realize that they are in #prison. They dont even realize that there is something outside of where they exist. #ThePleiadianMessage #BringersOfTheDawn #LightWorkers #4biddenknowledge
Professor Minerva McGonagall: Years ago, when Potter’s parent’s were marked for death, do you remember? They went into hiding. Few knew where they were. One who did was Sirius Black. And he told You-Know-Who!
Cornelius Fudge: Not only did Black lead You-Know-Who to the Potters that night, he also killed one of their friends, Peter Pettigrew.
Madame Rosmerta: Peter Pettigrew?
Professor Minerva McGonagall: Little lump of a boy, always following after Sirius Black.
Madame Rosmerta: Oh, I remember him. Never let James and Sirius out of his sight. But what happened?
Professor Minerva McGonagall: Well Peter Pettigrew tried to warn the Potters, and might have managed to if he hadn’t run into an old friend.
Madame Rosmerta: Mhm, Sirius Black.
Cornelius Fudge: Black was vicious. He didn’t kill Pettigrew, he destroyed him. A finger. That’s all that was left, a finger. Nothing else.
Professor Minerva McGonagall: Sirius Black may not have put his hands to the Potters, but he’s the reason they’re dead.
Cornelius Fudge: And now he wants to finish what he
