When Karla was in the Women's prison camps, she often went to work at sites outside of the prison facilities. This was done on a bus with no shackles on the inmates. There wasn't even fencing outside of the facilities to keep them in. Then may I ask why, when she was admitted to Carswel FMC, her hands and feet were shackled as she rode on a gurney? She was paralyzed on one side of her body and unable to walk, yet they shackled her hands and feet. Karla said this caused excruciating pain from the pressure of the chains on her highly sensitive skin and nervous system.
