I wasn't commenting on the process or the denial of visitation. I was responding to vancity's tirade over the fact that the politicians even wanted to visit or show support.Prisons have protocol. Prisoners are only allowed visits by lawyers and people on approved visitor lists in many prisons (not all, but usually federal). If those politicians wanted to visit someone they should have followed the proper procedure and got added to the visitor list for the person (persons) they wanted to see. It was a publicity stunt. It worked because the vast majority of people are completely ignorant to how prisons function. And apparantly how governments function since their swallowing “lawyer not allowed to see their client” without question. As well as the ridiculous stories that some haven’t been allowed outside in weeks - when federal law prohibits that and even prisoners in solitary confinement have a open cage outdoors they are made to go in for one hour per day. It’s mandatory.
why do people think they are above the protocol EVERYONE else has to follow?
