The impact of COVID-19 on Rikers Island
"Rikers island. New York City Jail Complex Housing. Four thousand inmates across eight facilities is now among the most infected workplaces in the country. Correction officers. Say they're working longer hours and are worried about catching the virus and spreading it to their families. Wall Street Journal reporter Deanna. Paul has been looking into the situation and joins me now. It's Hannah. There are inherent challenges to dealing with. An outbreak added jail or prison. Inmates are in close quarters and correction. Officers aren't always able to adhere to social distancing while doing their jobs. How're facilities across the country handling this since we've seen Kobe? One thousand nine hundred increase across the country there've been prisons in jails both the state local and federal level that have released prisoners at Rutgers New York City. They've opened up separate housing units in order to quarantine inmates who are either presumptive positives or are symptomatic or have been confirmed to have the virus. So let's talk more about rikers island jail in New York City which is now seeing one of the worst corona virus outbreaks in the country. What happened there? What did you hear from workers so rikers island is the biggest complex jail complex in New York City? Amit has eight different facilities on it. We've seen over eight hundred corrections employees that have tested positive. And there's been about three hundred and fifty inmates the issue with rikers. That is different. From state level or federal facility is is the turn of people that go in out jails are typically housing people that have either been sentenced to more minor crimes so of under a year or people that are pending trial depending sentence so people are going in and out so go to court. People are getting arrested and being released I think. Fifty percent of the people that are admitted to rikers are released within the first fourteen days. That there there you also have workers that are going in and out. You have people coming to visit the inmates and so all of that is bringing the virus in an out especially in a time where we were still learning a lot about it and weren't realizing that people who are asymptomatic could be spreading the virus and so the first inmates tested positive at rikers March. Eighteenth the first officer tested positive on March fourteenth and you didn't see the jails suspension until both of those had already happened. They also had a shortage of protective gear. So guards were being given the right types of masks or gloves or anything like that even if they were overseeing inmates who had tested positive Deanna. What are you hearing? From the city in response to these claims about preparedness at rikers island. The Correction Officers Union actually sued the city in early April. I think on April second overlays asking for testing to be made available to correction staffers asking for protective equipment to be made available to staffers. The Union actually bought tens of thousands of an ninety five masks and started giving them out to its officers because the city hadn't done it since then. The city has started testing officers. Who are symptomatic. They've also started making more readily available the protective where necessary. But that didn't happen until we were already. In April we're also seeing facilities across the country. That are released inmates that they're deeming not a danger to society in an attempt to get a handle on this. How does what's happening at rikers compared to what we're seeing across the US at rikers you've seen eight. Staffers have died. The eighth one was two days ago. And you've seen to inmates who have died and I guess I'll say that's at rikers at the same time. You also have gels in prisons all over the country that are still seeing pretty severe outbreaks in Ohio. There's a correctional facility in Marion. That just reported close to two thousand. Inmates tested positive earlier this week. And one hundred and fifty staffers. The Bureau of Prisons on the federal level has also seen a number of inmates. Die Out of oakdale among other prisons OAKDALE SUSANNA. Any other containment tactics. You can point to. They've made so readily available as they stopped charging inmates for for soap and things like that. I think in a prison setting were jail setting where inmates are kept so close together. It makes it really hard to do things like flat in the carver. Socially distance all these terms that we've recently come to be very familiar with those setups aren't really made for those kind of purposes

"But do you know what the conditions are right now at rikers me? Because I would imagine that. It's impossible to practice social distancing. You know as advised by. Cdc Do they have hands energizer. What are the conditions right now? This morning I was doing an interview on a local channel and prior to my coming on they had the president of the Correction Officers Union. Speaking obviously you know he's there to defend his numbers as we all should be concerned about our workforce making sure everybody's healthy everybody's safety is is important but yes Really individually denouncing the lack of seriousness. Ity Is giving this when I read the numbers before I mean we're talking about four hundred and forty one in four years inside the Department of Corrections System. That's an alarming number. And then a two hundred and eighty seven inmates so within a confined space like that. How do you not only deal social distancing? How do you do with disinfecting right? How do you deal with making sure that your sanitizing on a consistent basis? It's not easy and I just don't imagine that it's being done as effectively as it should. And so. That's the concern. We not getting clarity as to what other steps that are being taken after the interview this morning the reporter read a statement that was put out by the Department of Corrections and it was completely nonsensical to me creating resting spaces for the workers. We're taking care of this for handling it. Not not very concrete words you know very the words and statements that were left to a lot of interpretation and not a lot of facts or understanding of what it is in fact they are doing so. It's not clear to be honest. I'm sure the conditions were seen by the numbers and these numbers will change probably day-to-day that's the indication. Whether or not the Department of Corrections on the city of New York has a handle on it and it's not just the city. I WANNA make sure that we're you know so making sure that the state has a role to play in this choose. So it's both the governor and the mayor that are fully responsible for this and have to take it more seriously and have to be able to lay out something much more concretely as to what is happening. What what's arresting space but I WANNA know but that's eight Lynn like private areas of rest for the workers and I'm like well. What good does that do them? Where you're not talking about sanitizing right in our talking about those people that are that have cool. What's happening with them? What's happening with those workers who are positive? They still being asked to come to work in our off. What that lack of clarity I think is what causes a lot of anxiety in situations. Like this where. There's a lot of uncertainty and chaos. People need to feel information as a way of really kind of trying assuage people's fears and we're not getting that in certain circumstances right even to this day when I hear the governor's briefings and even the mayor's they've been pushed them pushing still not getting the racial breakdown of the data right. We're we're starting to get it still very clear. Now we are starting to say okay now. We know the Bronx has the greatest number of debts. How do you break that down further? Where within the Bronx Zoo happening right? And what are you doing to address that? We have nurses at Jacobi Hospital Auto Lincoln Hospital at Bronx Lebanon. That are protesting because governor. The mayor telling US yes. Equipment is here. We're getting out there. But the frontline workers are telling us they're not getting it so there is a lot of that You know conflicting information and it just feels that anxiety even further that already year because you know the numbers staggering. And it's it's alarming. We had eight hundred deaths today. It's the highest number yet Between yesterday and today eight hundred deaths and it's the last three days we've seen an increase and it was seven hundred thirty two days ago with seven hundred and seventy yesterday. It's about eight hundred today. it's you know it's that leads to a lot of myself hersal not immune to it you know when. I started to see those numbers. Got Me really down. You have a sense of of Paralysis almost that you feel useless. And what can you do? How can you solve it? Those of us that are problem solvers. That want to to help. So you know. We need more from our leaders at this time. I think I think a lot of us can can Connect with the idea feeling kind of helpless. You know but I was reading an interview and I don't know what state this was. Maybe it was at rikers island. But I think it's a different state but that people in the prison population are afraid if they are symptomatic because they're using solitary confinement isolate prisoners. Who ARE SYMPTOMATIC? And so if someone is symptomatic they don't. WanNa tell anyone and so they don't get help because I'll end up in isolation I mean. There's a lot of a lot of that right. That's that's very particular to the prison population. But then when you talk about right. There was some reporting happening today about the increase in hate crimes towards the Orthodox right community George Community and and obviously the Asian Community People. That are accusing them. Right of being the reasons why we have this pandemic or that. Why getting it's exacerbating and so there is. There is a a lot of concern. That's why leadership is important because you have to send a tone and a message from the top and when you have a president continues to fuel his hatred and racism and stigmatization and then he's fueling it and he's not doing anything to to try to bring the country together and to have open this together And to let us know that we're all in this together so and continuing to reinforce the positive message is the fact that we to this day. Do not have a national holiday across all states and territories about how we should be handling this in creating uniform way and approach from everybody. It's like it's like with the balloon right the balloon when you squeeze it right now. Washington and California may have it under control. But if you have those Republican governors that are continuing to allow people to go to church service and allow people to Beatrice allowing people to do social gatherings. That's not helping right. Because then we have these people can go prostate lines and then you can create a second wave of this so we don't have we cannot. I'm still waiting for nine eleven saying that for weeks. Now there's been no national Halsey in place and that is again the lack of leadership that I believe at times as intentional coming from this administration and so it's it's really of concern because we're not going to get a handle on this anytime soon. That's not addressed. There has to be a national more uniform policy across all areas. Yeah and there. There really is no rational explanation as to why there hasn't been a national response. You know people say just incompetence but you know personally. I don't necessarily buy that as a fool. Excuse but I mean we could go on and on about the possibilities as to why there isn't a national response but right. Yeah and I honestly don't think that we're going to get a national response into Republicans are are out of power. That's just my my take my hot take yet war or you start seeing the devastating results in these which are starting to see right these Republican states but then also you see the politicisation of the way that the resources are being allocated you know. We are at the epicenter of this and we have been from the beginning at yet. If we've received twenty to twenty five percent of what we've been asking for would be a lot you know. Meanwhile you have a Republican governor. Who completely defied you know? Any of the social distancing or any of the other recommendations getting over two hundred percent of what he wants. He's getting more than what he actually requested. So you re politicize the pandemic GonNa have this inequality that is exacerbated as well. It's basically a threat to our democracy to because we're also seeing how this pandemic is being used as a way to also further voter suppression when we see the disaster that the Republicans enacted in Wisconsin. That's horrific right or when we're having a conversation about we need to think about national male vote by mail program leading into this and there's no interest right it is going to be interested in the Senate Tattoo engage in that analysis on the president and this is really problematic and so these are conversations that we still have not engaged in by reporter are presidential primary Supposed to be at the of April now has been moved to June. Twenty third. Where now it will be a primary who knows what will be. Jerem we may still be impacted. You may still not be able to DO PULSE SITES. The governor just yesterday said that basically he will make and he will drop any of the obstacles to absentee ballots. So people can vote by mail. People can vote at home so at least that measures being taken into account but there's lack of consistency of how that's GonNa be addressed. The national general election is going to be critical and I am sure. The wheels already churning in those Republicans minds about how they're going to try to minimize the ability for Democrats to come out in numbers and make it harder and that's happening. Yeah if you read peril Anderson spoke one person no vote which is crucial. I think for everybody to read now. She goes historically through all of the different ways that voter suppression suppression has worked throughout history. And the thing that we've discovered is that voter suppression generally even when it's applied really broadly. It doesn't benefit progressive policies or Liberals or Democrats it benefits Republicans. So they don't have to be very precise necessarily in the way that they apply it but we're suppression generally benefits them so when he comes on and says Oh vote by mail which is a very democratic way to vote. We don't want that and you know he's comes out and says because bad things happen for Republicans when people can vote by mail they understand that too they understand it exactly man in the reporting today that came out talking about how now also the ceremonies that immigrants who have gone through the citizenship process now to become. Us citizens they have to go through that ceremony and then after the ceremonies usually people are automatically enrolled to vote. Well that's on hold right. Now though ceremonies aren't happening where on average sixty to sixty five thousand all right Were were becoming. Us citizens a month. Now that's completely on pause right so there. There's an aspect of of those were expecting to be part of this democratic causes. We're looking forward to it and feel about their civic duty. And now all those dreams are deferred right so that obviously is something that is beneficial to the Republicans clearly as we know Immigrant communities would in record numbers. Only hope against this the occupant of the White House. But there's a lot of different measures happening so I think the conversation. I am starting to hear a little bit about Elizabeth Warren out with a plan on issues with with everything she sees. She looks ahead but the issue of talking about. What are we gonNA do right now? What's the conversation needs to be having in Congress right now? Facilitate LOADING IN THE SUMMER BULLPEN. And so we need to be aggressive about that. We need to be very aggressive about that. And I'm hoping that that's GONNA start happening. You know the other thing also considering the the district a in the Bronx. I am running as candidate for Congress by the Fifteenth Congressional district unfortunately is considered one. Worse Congressional districts in the country.

"By the time with other emission came up with its recommendations population was about six or seven thousand right so the idea was to continue to implement. Hala sees in the city of New York that we're going to continue to downsize the jail population at rikers and at the same time. Then talk Focused on creating these community facilities to basically get to the endpoint repeatable at rikers. Who are from all over the city. All five boroughs would be able to be more locally based in their neighborhoods closer to their family networks and closer to their neighborhood networks as a way of providing a more holistic approach. And so that they could more seamlessly right if fully integrate back into society and and try to lessen the stigma and give them skill sets and really provide wraparound services To those who are in the jail system so that was where we ended up. So that's the recommendation that was made last year late last year. City Council finally did vote on making that a reality. It's a it's an important milestone and I and I think that it took a lot of work obviously and I'm very proud of that work and engaging in a conversation that now is taking hold across the country is wow. That's amazing. That's actually a really big deal. That's a big deal. I mean it's it's again. I I give a lot of credit to the activist. Never gave up that fight because it was happening a lot of years I think what ultimately really I think materialize or made it a visual right about what is wrong with rikers humanity. Rikers was the story of Khalif Browder. Which basically the story of a young man sixteen years of who was arrested and accused not convicted accused of having stolen a book bag. Something very you know nonviolent. Something that happened that sixteen years of age because his family could not pay bail. That young man stayed at rikers for three years. Three years for being accused of stealing backpack put his solitary confinement unexperienced which basically broke him. And when he was able to come out of rikers after three years of those poor. Ristic inhumane conditions Eventually kill themselves and the experience had just created that situation and so that story. I think really put into perspective. What is so wrong with this? And that we were able to really talk to his mother on when I did announce the creation of the Independent Commission. I reached out to his mother. And I indicated that I wanted to convenience commissioned that it was basically coming out of that horrific experience that Elif she and his family had lived and that I would want her to be there present at the announcement and she joined us she has since then passed away but you know she understood and she was an activist in her own right to talk about the experiences that the bail system also right abroad missing conversation. You have a two-tiered system or people that have the ability to make bail can get out of jail or people who are similarly accused of similar crimes and were poor cannot get out of jail and have to wait for their court in jail. And that's what happened with Khalif in his family and so this is really galvanizing moment. Unfortunately out of a tragedy but I was able to crystallize people why it was a knee to really look at this more seriously and to implement changes and to lead to your records island so now we're niches with pandemic. Obviously that it has brought this conversation to different light it is not crystallizing once again. The inhumanity of our jail system our prison system and that that is just unsustainable. Ya the Khalif browder story. I mean it just haunts me. And if you weren't aware of what we do. The young people and about the situation at rikers island before the Khalif browder story in that tragedy should should everyone now. It really doesn't and that we have those stories unfortunately repeating themselves conversation happening at the state level about bail reform right and unfortunately it was a lot of progress that was made last year and a lot of that. Progress was recently legal back Based on reactionary opposition right to avail changes on the changes to the bail system. People DON'T UNDERSTAND. Your bail is not meant to be punitive. They'll is not to be as a way of ensuring that you're gonNA arrive at your court date and this day and age we still have a innocent until proven guilty The other issue that people don't realize not rikers island is the vast majority of people at rikers island are people that are just being a lot of people. Don't have the ability to spell right. I don't have the ability financially to post fails and about Navy fifteen percent ten to fifteen percent. Maybe twenty percent of those records island are fulfilling terms of one year or less but the vast vast vast majority of those at rikers or awaiting court dates and are waiting to court hearings. So that's where we keep pushing pushing to make these changes to stomach changes. So that we have less and less and less people on rikers island and eventually gets to the point where we do. Have these community facilities that allow people to be closer to their family networks right we have a situation like. Khalif broader like. You said it's still happening people. Think that when you're in jail you're guilty right but that's true these. These are people often who have been accused of something they aren't necessarily it hasn't been proven guilty and they just don't have the money to get out and I just want to reiterate that he was sixteen years old right you know and now when you have a pandemic and you have a situation that's happening in prisons if you are accused of you're guilty or not of stealing a backpack and you go to a place like rikers island. What the pandemic that could be a death sentence of course. And also that there's like some technicalities and and parole violations or people at our nine violent offenses It's just you know it's it's just the craziness I think the craziness of the system is is exposed here and I think that those continue to hold on out. This is the way to do it. I think that we have to challenge that notion consistently right this again as I mentioned the over criminalization of our communities and usually when it is people of color issued very differently right Lisa. Be Less tolerance photo. Vote for those of us that are Latinos. African Americans are immigrants and that we have to push on that because a lot of that stems from prejudice and racism. People don't want to admit that right people get really excited if you you know you make statements because they personalize it right and what is true. We have a an educational system. We have our our justice system. Everything has been based within these frameworks. That a Lotta Times are racist and overtly or covertly Ryan and it may not be so obvious to some there and we have to continue to peel away added continue to challenge it and I think that obviously the progressive wave the movement Bernie Sanders has inspired the young people that are part of that movement. Some of the elected officials are coming out of that movement are really embracing this and challenging. This and I think that would that growing we can get to a point where we can get more radical change in place which is important at this point in our say radical. Because I think it's logical rates many of us that believe in equality injustice is where we should be We have to keep aspiring to at. And that's why with a conversation. It was an important conversation to have and this is something that we started at this point. I've years ago. We a totally different place in time as to where we are. Now where a lot of those conversations have been advance and so. I'm proud that we were able to be ahead of that. Wave and released challenge the system and really be thoughtful about it and cutting edge to assert away now hoping that we can continue that conversation before More changes the. This is something that you said earlier. I think that people do shut down because they do feel like. It's a personal indictment. You know when they benefit themselves from the privilege and they're aware of the disparities and no one really wants to hear that right. So Oh this is Jim Taylor.

"Here in New York Manhattan dredges sentenced former Hollywood producer and convicted sex offender Harvey Weinstein to twenty three years in prison in a landmark ruling. The metoo movement after his sentencing Weinstein was taken under armed guard. And bus from the Manhattan courthouse to rikers island jail. He was later transferred to Manhattan's Bellevue Hospital. After complaining of Chest Pains Weinstein was found guilty last month of raping an aspiring actress. Jessica man in a hotel room in two thousand thirteen and if sexually assaulting production Assistant Mimi Halley at his apartment in two thousand six by forcibly performing oral sex on her attorney. Gloria allred read from Haley's victim's impact statement outside the court just after Weinstein sentencing. I have observed an indifference a lack of remorse. A lack of acknowledgment a lack of awareness and self awareness by the defendant throughout this process. That has made me feel anger. That has left me concern that. He is completely disconnected from the gravity of the crime that he committed against me and the impact.

Nobody Belongs at Rikers... Not Even Harvey Weinstein
"I loathe Harvey Weinstein. Not just in some generic way. The man was violent and abusive to people that have come to know over these past few years. He Literally Encouraged Hillary Clinton's twenty sixteen presidential campaign to target and harass my dear friend the late Eric Garner as she became an effective campaigner for Bernie. I saw the emails to the campaign and I talk with Erica about that in it terrified her to see this man a man in power. She was struggling at that point in her life. Just an everyday person fighting for justice for a father into see that Harvey Weinstein knew her. It was throwing her under the bus in emails to the campaign concerned. Her as of yesterday Harvey Weinstein is now a convicted sex offender now. I am nothing but glad that he's being held accountable for his abuses period. End OF STORY DOT COM. No IFS ands or buts soon. After the world realized that he was being sent to rikers. Which is the primary jail for all of New York City? As soon as people learned he was being sent there just as all convicted men in New York City are the conversation went somewhere that I just can't support and I understand it so let me just say that up front. I understand the conversation and I understand that revenge. In some ways is primal and Harvey. Weinstein has used his white privilege his wealth. His power is used those things to assault women into ruin people's lives and careers for decades and man was able to do it over and over and over again because powerful people had no intention of ever holding him accountable and so when the news got out that Harvey Weinstein was on his way to rikers. I saw people saying all over social media things that I simply refuse to say. I'll explain why in a second but people began saying they hoped Harvey Weinstein would be put in solitary confinement. They hoped he'd be beat down. They hope the guards would turn the other way. I saw people say they hope Harvey Weinstein would be raped. Get a taste of his own medicine. In four moment as the online mob against him grew the word. Rikers was literally the top trending topic in the world and it was mainly just because people are celebrating that somebody like Harvey Weinstein was finally going to experience the hell that black and Brown New Yorkers have experienced since long before I was born in again. Let me say I get the anger. The man did horrible criminal things. But let me explain why I can't join in on some of the remarks that people are saying last year after generations of just chewing people up and spitting them out. The city of New York finally voted to officially closed down rikers island correctional facility. Now it's GonNa take years for it to fully shutdown but the place is a hell hole year in and year out. Tens of thousands of New Yorkers primarily black and Brown New Yorkers primarily poor New Yorkers. They are taken there. But nobody who emerges from rikers is ever the same in. It's literally a one in a million chance that somebody like Harvey Weinstein ever has to suffer there because the people that get beaten and battered in raped and stabbed and slashed their at rikers. They're not rich white executives. In fact before Harvey Weinstein could even get to rikers before they ever took him there. They actually diverted the car and took him to a hospital instead. And so as I record this at this moment at least he's not even actually at rikers but I can tell you who is thousands of poor black and Brown. Young people people suffering through mental illness and drug addiction. But I getting the most brutal form of incarceration instead of any type of treatment. So I can't cheer Harvey going to rikers because I know it's almost never him or men like him in the systems and structures that people want to chew Harvey Weinstein up those systems and structures. They rarely chew men like that up. They'll rarely do that instead. It's going to be happening to the most marginalized men among us. Let me close with this thought. We have a great new ad from one of our sponsors that I can't wait to share with you. The same reason that I can't cheer on Harvey Weinstein going to rikers. Listen again. I'm glad that he was convicted. But I can't cheer anything about rikers in the same reason exists for why I don't cheer when White Supremacists get the death penalty. Listen in full transparency. Something awful in me. Sometimes once those men to die. I'm not. I'm not proud of it but I admit it. I don't like feeling that way but I don't have a soft spot in my heart for Dylann roof but again here's what I know it's that it's not normally white supremacists that are being executed in this country. That's bad who's going to the electric chamber. That's not who's going to the electric chair rather or the gas chamber instead it's black men. It's poor black men to be more specific. They are the single most likely group of Americans to be executed so when I cheer on the execution for Man. That's really the exception to the rule and not the rule. I'm basically cheering it on for everybody else as well. I can't cheer rikers. I can't share the death penalty and part of being a modern day. Abolitionist is having actual principles that are centered on the fact that the whole damn system of mass incarceration needs to be torn down. It does that doesn't mean there's not a way for Harvey Weinstein to get justice. But you won't hear me cheering on rikers. Never that

It wasn't that long ago that I had an opportunity to speak to some prisoners at Rikers island. It didn't go well, and the reason it didn't go. Well, it was the people were nice, but so I was brought into speak to these prisoners that were graduating a program that was somewhat fate paced. And anyway, I watched for full hour before I got a chance to speak to these guys. And there was a pastor that just wouldn't stop. Anyone on an on an on watching the, the body language of the prisoners, and they're like, stop. We've heard it a nothing. They're out of their minds. So I knew I was going to be the last speaker and anyway. So there was the families that were out there because they graduated this program, and then I had an opportunity to speak in all right. I know you're restless after the last speaker. I'm only going to speak for five minutes, and I'd like to ask the audience out here if they don't mind if I turn my back to them and speak directly to the prisoners here. And well, you know their prisoners and I went full-on street, New York which I kind of grew up being able to talk because I didn't think they were relating to the lofty, spiritual talk. They just had for four hours. And I went through the list, I said, half a you coming back here hair for you. We'll come back and be stupid and ruin your life.

I guess this was kind of a shoo-in though, but locally a West Palm Beach brand new police chief approved by city commissioners last night, you know what it, but we need to ask the mayor, because the mayor was was pretty staunch in the last time when they were looking for a new police chief that he wanted a national search, right? Yet, he announced Frank Adderley out of Broward County almost immediately. There was no national search. It was just like, oh, I want this guy to be the next chief of police, and I'm not saying that Mr. Adderley or a police officer, a captain or whatever's title is isn't qualified by stretch of the imagination. I just want to know why the mayor, you know, kind of diverted from national search to let me just name this guy he was available. I don't know and that could be it. They wanted to jump on before he took a position somewhere else. I understand that. But I just need an explanation. That's how it's like a. Team with a coach. You know they got the guy they want they just grab them right away. I don't know. Maybe that was the case could or they didn't think that they could really afford to have months and months and months of national search. I don't know there, there, there are many answers to this many answers put please explain to me, why Paul Manafort, and I'm going off track standing in, but this doesn't make any sense to me. Here's a guy who hates him so much. He was sentenced for prison it to prison for years for tax and Bank Front. Right. So they sent him to some cushy little prison somewhere. Now, they're switching them from Pennsylvania to Rikers island in New York. What, what you're right? What did he do? That's like that's like one of the worst prisons in the country.

"Waffles and Rikers island. The notorious prison in New York City has carrot cake. It's the only dessert served on holidays, and it's made on site Wall Street Journal reporter, Karen Ramey, says understanding jail carrot cake. Requires understanding the outsize role of food behind bars food can incite riots food can also keep the peace. It is also currency to be traded Corey set this up in the jail complex that's on Rikers island in New York. Jail. You don't get a whole lot of the berries warned alert that this that we jailed or famous for carrot cake. That's what they had Christmas dinner. And why is that why charac as opposed to any other kind of cake or pie? Started in the thirties or forties. When you're in jail. If you're gonna give people in jail term holiday tree don't bring in chocolate frosting or fancy cookie or anything that would cost more money to make. And so they had these ingredients in the in the kitchen, and they kind of started making carrot cake, and it caught on and it sort of became this iconic food at the jail, but it's not a regular feature in their meals recently. A couple of times a year. Yeah. It's only for really special occasion. So that would be thanksgiving and Christmas are the main one I think they also get it and Ramadan and mother's day. And Father's Day. Well, I think you said there's like eight thousand inmates there, right? So how much do they make or need to make for these occasions? They do these big bakes right before thanksgiving and right before Christmas, and it ended up being about twenty five hundred loaves, which is more than sixty two thousand slices of cake. It's all gone or do they give away leftovers? Did they make any extra for the community? Like, what do they do? Well, I mean, they eat it and popular, but they will save a little bit in the freezer, and what it tends to get used for is when important people come to jails for meetings, they have the high level meetings. Like, if you have the mayor come to the jail or other sort of visiting dignitaries. And then now they put down like a paper plate on the table with like, the carrot cake. Like, that's sorta the catering how are the reviews? Well, so I have to say I have actually tried it. Good. And you you spend how much time on Rikers as a guest. Yes. So it's good. If you're really into sort of sweet. If you're mentioning in your head like cake with cream cheese frosting, and that sort of thing it's not that it's almost like like, a banana bread type thing, but carrot cake. Now, I know you mentioned in the story like sometimes food in a jail or prison can be like a very powerful item or currency to be traded is treated that way. It is. I mean, I think one thing that I have learned from covering prisons and jails sort of just how important food is. I mean, voted important to all of us, and it's sort of very special for holidays and special for, you know. A big part of relationships. But in jail, it's like one thing that sort of reminds you of outside world and memory of the outside world, and it's sort of something you can still enjoy when there's a lot of things you're not enjoying in your life.
