As a massive winter storm brought freezing temperatures and widespread power outages to Texas, people in jails there were left with no running water, no extra blankets and little food.“We’re in here freezing to death and starving,” Finis Prendergast, a 42-year-old National Guard veteran who has been held in a Harris County jail for 29 months, told HuffPost on Wednesday. Mass power outages have plunged millions across the state into darkness with no heat, while temperatures have dropped below freezing in recent days. Officials still do not know when power will be broadly restored. Prendergast said that after power went out at the jail around 2am local time on Monday, generators kicked in, but power was restored in a limited fashion. Only one of five rows of lights in the dorm lit up, and plug sockets didn’t work. He said “cool air” has been blowing through the vents, and they weren’t given any dinner on Monday night. Nigel Patrick, a 37-year-old imprisoned in the same facility, confirmed Prendergast’s account that they hadn’t received dinner on Monday. He said that people had not received any extra blankets and were wrapped up “like a burrito” in the single thin blanket they already had.On Tuesday night, officers distributed water bottles, which people incarcerated at the facility now must use for drinking, brushing their teeth, and washing their hands. Meanwhile, the nine toilets in the facility – which are used by dozens of people – have been filled up to the brim with urine and faeces. “It’s unbearable,” Patrick said on the phone from the jail, speaking to HuffPost and Texas Jail Project advocates. “I’ve been holding my bowels, needing to defecate for two days.”In response to questions, the Harris County sheriff’s office directed HuffPost to its statements on Twitter, which confirmed that its three jail facilities lost water pressure, but said they still had power. The office claimed the heat was “working fine” and that people in its jails got three meals a day and extra blankets. The majority of people in jails across the United States are being held before their trial, many simply because they cannot afford bail. People in US prisons are also disproportionately Black.We're hearing from folks in 2 out of the 3 buildings that make up HCJ.*NO hot food since y'day. Some pods did not receive even a brown bag dinner.*NO extra blankets. Some were told that they cannot walk around wearing their blankets.*NO power to use their hotpots. @HCSOTexashttps://t.co/JicqOEpVO1— Texas Jail Project (Jail Project of Texas) (@TxJailProject) February 16, 2021Due to widespread power outages, there was a risk that many vials of the Covid-19 vaccine – which must be kept in sub-zero freezers – would go bad, so Prendergast, Patrick and others in Harris County jails received the vaccine yesterday.Harris County is far from the only jail or prison system to fail its incarcerated population amid the storm. The Texas Jail Project has relayed reports from people in jails in several other counties who have said they have no access to running water. People in state prisons are also reporting that inadequate food and overworked prison staff amid the snowstorm, according to The Marshall Project.Hundreds of women incarcerated at a federal medical prison in Fort Worth were also left “freezing” without heat amid the storm, the Forth Worth Star-Telegram reported.Prendergast noted that they haven’t had a hot meal in days and instead of the usual bread with peanut butter and jelly in the mornings, today they got a small muffin – “incredibly tiny, like bite-size” – with three little packets of jelly and peanut butter. “What am I supposed to do with that?” he asked.“This storm has really brought out some of the issues they have in the prison system,” said Tracy Williams, policy director at Texas Inmate Families Association, which represents families with loved ones in Texas prisons. He said his organisation has been getting emails about people imprisoned losing power and spending days without heat. “It speaks to some much needed change.”Meanwhile, freezing temperatures are set to continue in Texas in the coming days.More US NewsRush Limbaugh, Bigoted King Of US Talk Radio, Dies At 70Donald Trump Is Facing These Criminal And Civil InvestigationsBoris Johnson Calls Trump Impeachment Over Capitol Hill 'A Kerfuffle'

President Joe Biden is so over his predecessor. “I’m tired of talking about Donald Trump,” he said during Tuesday night’s town hall event in Milwaukee. “I don’t want to talk about him anymore.”He said it twice during the event, including when asked about Trump’s second impeachment acquittal.“Look, for four years all that’s been in the news is Trump,” Biden explained. “The next four years I want to make sure all the news is the American people.”True to that sentiment, Biden referred to Trump only as “the former guy” at another point.Based on the reaction on social media, the president is hardly alone in the desire to move on:So say 81,283,097 other Americans as well. https://t.co/AmlkOr6QWw— David Swinney (@davidswinney) February 17, 2021President Biden is all of us. https://t.co/D3xckeRLqi— Jess (@Jess_Sassenach) February 17, 2021Idea for a comedy series:Mobster gets elected President to avoid prosecution for tax evasion and racketeering in New York.

The final vote on acquittal in the US Senate came 10 votes short of the 67 required to convict former President Donald Trump of inciting the 6th January riot at the US Capitol.Trump said, “We fight like hell.Democratic impeachment manager Joe Neguse said, “He assembled the mob, he summoned the mob, and he incited the mob”.The incident left on death and more than 130 officers injured, with many seriously.Two committed suicide in the immediate aftermath of the onslaught.The impeachment manager David Cicilline admired the police and said, “They showed up here to serve, and to serve the American people, and to serve their government, to serve all of us”.
He issued a statement hours after the Senate failed to muster the two-thirds majority needed to convict Trump.Biden said, “While the final vote did not lead to a conviction, the substance of the charge is not in dispute.Even those opposed to the conviction, like Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, believe Donald Trump was guilty of a disgraceful dereliction of duty and practically & morally responsible for provoking the violence unleashed on the Capitol”.President Biden pointed out that 57 senators including a record 7 Republicans voted to find Trump guilty, following a bipartisan vote by the House of Representatives to impeach the Republican former president.He said he was thinking about Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, who was killed during the siege of the Capitol on 6th January, others who bravely stood guard, and those who lost their lives.He lauded the courage of those who made efforts to protect the integrity of US democracy, including Democrats, Republicans, election officials, judges, elected representatives, and poll workers.That it must always be defended.
