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.
