A Stack of Words

My Über driver was telling me about his gay son, Justin, who is locked up in Dekalb County Jail. He has been there for two years and is in a cell block with other LGBTQ* inmates. He told me Justin has been sexually assaulted and beaten multiple times. When he wrote a grievance report the guards found out about it. They put Justin in a cell with someone who abuses him regularly. Justin won’t give him details because he’s worried he’ll file another report and they’ll find out.

His spirit is broken. He feels helpless.
