Siyad | AVID Jail Project
One day you’re in minimum security, the next you’re in solitary confinement. You’re released before you receive treatment, and you’re back in jail again before you know what hit you. That’s what 24-year-old Siyad Shamo has experienced in the jails in King County, Washington. Inconsistencies in how jails treat people with mental illness drives the cycle that sees the same people come in and out, year after year.
