As in any jail, life in Cook County Jail can be dreary; at times, it has been known to be fierce and cruel. But inmates share laughter during a weekly comedy show staged by talented prisoners.

It Went Down At #CookCountyJail

The electric chair is installed at Cook County Jail on Aug. 9, 1927, one of only three facilities to used the chair in Illinois. On July 6, 1927, a bill was signed replacing the rope with the electric chair as a method of execution. The chair was made by inmates in the Indiana Penitentiary, Michigan City, Ind. #electricchair #1920s #cookcountyjail #executions #gangstersandgrifters

A detainee in Division 2 of the Cook County Jail works on a mural as part of the Sheriff's Anti-Violence Effort, or S.A.V.E.
S.A.V.E. is designed to instill positive social norms and values in participants who are likely to return to one of Chicago’s most violent community areas. Up to 48 participants will be housed together and will participate in an intensive, 8 hour a day, five-day a week program. #cookcountyjail #cookcountysheriff #cookcounty #chicago #save

Michelle Mbekeani-Wiley watches as maximum-security inmates vote at a chapel inside Cook County Jail. Since last year, she and a band of volunteers have visited the jail every weekend to do voter education and registration. Those efforts culminated when they worked with Cook County officials to set up polling places there last March, allowing eligible inmates to vote in person for the first time in nearly a decade. "People that are currently detained are impacted by those very same policies that our elected officials are making critical decisions on,” says Mbekeani-Wiley, who works with the Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law, explaining why inmates should be able to vote. “They should be part of that process.” Read about why many eligible voters behind bars in Illinois are denied the right to vote at the link in our bio.

Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart speaks on violence and gun offenders in Cook County at a press conference. 7/13/17 #cookcounty #cookcountyjail #cookcountysheriff #cookcountysheriffspolice #cookcountysheriffsdepartment #chicago #chicagoland #chicagogram #crime #guns #tomdart

“Always in the back of my mind is people who are not even convicted who are sitting in jail because they can’t afford bond to get out and they are eligible to vote … So we have two classes of voters." --Charlie Sullivan, co-founder of CURE National, a prison and jail reform group. He likened denying inmates’ access to the ballot to a poll tax based on ability to pay bond.

By law, inmates awaiting trial in Illinois have the right to vote.  But legal experts say the law is ambiguous and could lead to voter disenfranchisement because it doesn’t spell out procedures for inmates to register and vote. And the law doesn’t require election authorities to report vote totals from the state’s jails. Such disparities disproportionately affect poor blacks and Latinos.

#50GreatestConcerts: In 1970, blues legend B.B.King was invited to play a gig at Chicago's Cook County Jail. With a full big band behind him, King belted burning takes on “Every Day I Have the Blues” and “How Blue Can You Get?” with a fury the loud assembly evidently connected with. The inmates booed when he took the stage, but by the end they were hypnotized. Read more on rollingstoneindia.com. Link in bio.
