All death row inmates Could be picked. Not just political prisoners but any condemned.
Blackburn only house female inmates. Any women in Blackburn could end up on the busdiness end of a gun.
Anna joy was pacing in her cell. She wore a prison uniform that resembled a potatoe sack. She was barefoot. The uniform was made of course material and was uncomfortable. Some inmates decided to just go naked. She wanted to perserve some if her dignity. They were not alowed underwear.

It was hardly dissent. She voted for the president in the last election. She was a proud member of the president’s political party. She was a member of the local party executive bored. It was a disagreement on an insugnificant iasue.
The president did not tolerate any disagreement . no dissent, no opposition. You were one hundred percent for him or one hundred against him. There was no middle ground.
