Save Jamie Scott! Demand justice for the Scott sisters!

In the Fall 2009 The Fire Inside we wrote about the outrageous injustice in the Scott sisters case. Jamie and Gladys Scott received two consecutive life sentences for a 1993 armed robbery in which no one was hurt and $11was taken. This is turning into a death sentence for Jamie who suffers from end stage renal disease, relying on dialysis to survive. The medical care Jamie Scott is receiving at Central Mississippi Correctional Facility (CMCF) in Pearl, MS amounts to criminal malpractice. The portable dialysis machine at the prison breaks down, contributing to multiple complications and infections.
The most recent time Jamie was taken out to a hospital the doctor insisted that she must stay for proper treatment, but the Mississippi Department of Corrections took her back to prison. As Jamie writes, ?The conditions in quickbed area are not fit for any human to live in. I have been incarcerated for 15 years 6 months now and this is the worst I have ever experienced.?I have witnessed many inmates die at the hands of this medical care. I do not want to be one of them.?
Please take action to save Jamie Scott?s life. Let these officials below know that you demand decent medical care and immediate release for Jamie Scott, #19197.
