Themes

This episode continues to highlight the difficulties associated with the coronavirus pandemic, as well as unfair aspects of the U.S. criminal justice and penal systems:

  • People being labeled "violent offenders" for relatively minor offenses, such as shoving a police officer during an arrest;
  • Poor medical care and record keeping in penal facilities;
  • Pregnant women being separated from their babies upon returning to jail after giving birth;
  • The backlog of court cases being exacerbated by the pandemic.

  • A woman named Yesenia Cruz who is also suffering from cardiomyopathy is treated for COVID-19 but quickly deteriorates and passes away;
