My Über driver was telling me about her gay son 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. She told me about how he was sexually assaulted and beat multiple times. When he wrote a grievance report the guards found out about it. They put him in a cell with someone who abuses him regularly. He won’t give her details because he’s worried she’ll file another report and they’ll find out.

Her spirit is broken. She feels helpless.
