Mail to Pinkney returned

Yesterday, May 27, Berrien County resident Lenette Evans found a returned letter in her mailbox bearing bold letters, "UNAUTHORIZED MAIL." It contained Herald Palladium newspaper articles and devotional booklets she sent to Rev. Pinkney. This is the third incident of mail to Pinkney being returned to her which had been opened by the jail. Lenette believes people in power do not want Pinkney to know what's going on in his community, wishes they would stop the harassment of Pinkney and his supporters, and since the jail is opening the mail she thinks they should include a note explaining what classifies it as "unauthorized."
