What else can they do ? Not like they are pillars of Society working to better society.

They put themselves in prison. They did the crime. They should not complain. They could be walking in the park, eating takeout food - but they did the crime. blame yourselves. (unless you are innocent and some really are)

Gov Kelley better hurry up and let these fine fellows out, would not want them getting sick serving their debt to society.

Given the legal system, inmate health care is a minefield. There is no simple solution to this. Ellsworth isn't Lansing, by any means. Not a place you'd expect to find hard cases. Maybe, the guv should be thinking about the prisons, instead, of the churches.
