Health care, or lack thereof, in Orleans Parish Prisons is horrendous! Diabetic who are in OPP are fed high carbohydrate diets and they’re not given enough (or the right kind of) insulin to maintain their sugars. Although the public probably doesn’t care about diabetics in jail, OPP’s treatment of diabetics boarders on a human rights violation.

On another note, thank you so much for drawing attention to the problems of Orleans Parish Prisons and New Orleans in general.
