What the oppressor do to you they’ll do it to me: letter of solidarity to other prisoners

Peace & Respect

To The Last of a Dying Breed.
I feel you King Coe Tha Great. I’m witcha. Just keep on watchn Brotha. My pain is your pain. Your struggle is my struggle. We are one of a kind we are Truly the Last of a Dying Breed.

Now do anybody want to know why nobody is standing up in the system why everybody is layn down. It is simple the system has infiltrate our movements. Have you ever met a brotha that has called himself a real dude or a solid dude. But when it’s time to show up and make a stand he plays dead. I bet this is his favorite line to use. (I got too much going on. I ain’t trying to take a lost.) Such a sad case this because the system has made these men compromise their integrity. Nobody wants to sacrifice. Nobody wants to play as a team. Everybody wants to lead the team. Most of these brothas are all about self. Look around Brotha I am you and you are me. We under the same struggle daily. What the oppressor do to you they’ll do it to me. See what the oppressor is doing is given gifts to be a good inmate. Touch pad, packages once a month, chicken box etc. Now let me ask how can this system afford to give all these things. But they refuse to give us lunch back on the weekend. I have a answer. Do you all remember the $10 they took and that $1 a month that the state is taken from us. They’re making million off our family for us to enjoy temporary satisfaction. But it’s only helping them control the people. Brothas think about we are payn for all the things that they are given. Why keep given. Because people are compromising with the system to live in comfort. The mass will lay down and be happy with these things and this stuff instead of really making a change. I can’t say what’s in the next man’s heart their intention may be good but I will say that we’ve been blinded by the tricks that the system has placed in front of us. I have a comrade that the tells me daily The game is in a state of confusion my Brotha.

I leave as I come with peace and respect
and a few spoken words.

I am one of many warriors that bear tattoo and battle wounds from previous wars These scars reach further than this physical garment. Batter and abuse mentally confused from this mental and emotional torment only the Lord knows the pain of ones Soul silent prayers Vivid nightmares Broken Dreams is this pain real. Suicide theme when you can’t escape the screams of the mentally insane it’ll drive you crazy and drange even if you are sane there is still no escapin the pain cuz they playn tricks with our brains it’s hard to find peace so we smile not to feel weak it hurts more with each heartbeat. See I refuse to fall weak because they prey on the weak links standing strong Brothea think they’ll do anything to make us break lock us in a box like goods in a safe bury us alive is what they think but they can’t kill the thoughts in our brains give us purple hearts for we’ve endured way too much physical, emotional and mental pain. Label these men amongst me The Last of a Dying Breed for we are truly Purple Hearted

Peace & Respect

Prisoners languishing on Tier Program longer than allowed

4/2/2017

The GA Dept. of Corrections con is being perpetrated in the guise of Valdosta State Prison not having enough cells to release prisoners from its Tier II Torture Program. The majority of prisoners being housed on this behavioral modification / prolonged solitary KKKonfinement program never met the criteria to be placed on the program nor were they sanctioned to the program as is mandated by the statutory language of G.D.C.’s S.O.P. IIB09-0001 and IIB09-0003 (A) policy. Warden Stanley Williams has been relieving Tier II appeals and many have been recommended to be returned to the general population due to them completing the program, failed to meet the standard, for such housing etc. Yet I and others are arbitrarily and unlawfully being forced to be housed in this torture program. As of Feb 4th 2017, the tier II classification recommended 3 plus status until the facility responded. On Feb 27th Warden Stanley Williams disagreed with the tier II classification recommendation and instead order that I placed on tier I and returned​ to population, even so I am still on prolonged solitary KKKonfinement. The excuse given is “There’s no cells in general population place you or others who’ve won their Tier II appeals.” So even though GA Dept. of KKKorrections states on its website this program is not to be used as a tool of punishing punishment or retaliation its actions are contrary to its stated false intent. Prisoners are deliberately being malnourished, subjected to mental and physical deprivations, and now denied access to their community by being forced to give or participate in a program that spies on their families through a phone system that targets S.T.G’s and their associates. Prisoners must now submit their voices to voice recognition software / spyware in order to use the phone. Due to me being conscious of the government intent I refused to give my voice. I’d rather write than call any comrade​ ​ who’ll be tagged as a member of a street terrorist group as it is applied by the homeland security / Patriot Act. Anyone or any organization that stands and fights against government oppression in all its forms, is considered by the federal government a potential domestic terrorist. So all revolutionary minded prisoners and families, friends, and political associates are tagged and watched closely. So beware of what you do and say on that phone line. Before I close this I’d like to send a shout out to all the brothers and sisters, fighting this imperialistic / capitalistic machine of  oppression.

Respectfully

Reflection on the effect of December 9th 2010: Resistance behind enemy lines

By Kelevin Stevenson
2/18/17
As the whole world knows by now, the day GA’s enslaved straightened their backs and rebelled under a unified front, against Georgia’s fascist slave system. December 9th 2010 is a part of revolutionary history but that’s just it. It has been 6 years 49 days since GA’s prison population set aside racial, cultural, political, and tribal differences and strove to take their humanity back.

Comrade Earthworm asked me to submit this reflection on GS’s enslaved revolutionary mindstate then, compared to now, and the effect GA’s prison strikes manifested good and bad. The Bad of said actions, has been an ongoing retaliation, GA Dept. of Corrections has continued to sub the enslaved population to. As a result of prisoners using diplomacy to govern themselves, their actions, and their revolutionary stride, the prisoncrats have implemented the Tier torture program, which sole purpose is to punish prisoners for their cultural, political, and militant beliefs. The Ombudsman unit throughout the United States of AmeriKKKa has created so-called behavioral modification programs that are designed to destroy the mental, physical, and spiritual well-being of the enslaved. It is further aided by mental health mad men/women that prescribe prisoners all forms of psychotropic drugs, that do nothing but destroy a human’s brain and body. All of this is subsidized by the federal government. States created and operate special management programs or a statewide policy that attacks any and all humans who resist being oppressed and exploited. The sad fact of the matter is that humans are dying daily in these torture programs. Prisoners are killing themselves to escape torturous days of mind-numbing stagnation and human deprivation that comes with this. I am witness to the many bodies that are carted out of these steel coffins and witness to G.D.C. Administrators scurrying to cover up the truth of the matter. GA is torturing its citizens under the guise of public safety. GA is torturing humans on these KKKlantations and the public is turning a blind eye to this fact. Yet 98% of these tortured men and women will one day walk free of these prison gates. They will come back into society cold-hearted and hate-filled. The taxpayers will get what they deserve, they will get the finished product of the slave system and it will not be what they bargained for. Just like the majority are regretting deep in their hearts they voted for Donald Trump. They’re getting what they asked for and so much more is to come, all of it detrimental to the common man and woman. Now as to the good effects of December 9th 2010 much as been manifested from it. The 2012 hunger strike of Georgia, the 2013 hunger strike of California, the Free Alabama Movement and its day of solidarity 2016. Many both incarcerated and free have been awakened and motivated to get in this good revolutionary fight. Prisoners are now being given a chance to get some education, especially their G.E.D.s. Vocational training is being talked about and college correspondence has increased, the prisoners are trying to arm themselves and better themselves by getting a education anyway they can. Further there are now more revolutionary sparks spreaded throughout Georgia and AmeriKKKa. I realize that one has to accept the bitter with the sweet and that what inspires me and others to keep going. The Revolutionary seed is being planted on The daily and the current political climate will help to cultivate the present and future generations of men and women who refuse to be exploited by this imperialistic/capitalist controlled machine of oppression. Now let me be clear, December 9th 2010 was not the start of the current revolutionary movement but it was high octane gas that was thrown on a already smoldering fire, which exploded brilliantly into a fireball of determined resistance throughout AmeriKKKa’s slave system. It has played a major role in inspiring many to stand up and resist which is a very good thing. In being, I accept the good and bad of it with no regrets. If I had to do it all over again, I would gladly without any hesitation. Even though GA Dept of Corrections tried to lynch me and Comrade Miguel Jackson and the fact we’re still being punished and persecuted for having the courage to stand against oppression and exploitation, I’m still honored and motivated to be a part or cog in something that is greater than the individual. GA’s prison strike of 2010 December 9th 2010 was a very good thing!!

A captive of the Department of Corruptions

from: Michael “Master Cypher-El” Jordan
While being incarcerated for the last past almost 8 yrs. I have come into the realization that this govern-mental-system has been designed not for the purpose of helping one to rehabilitate himself but to continuously keep one in mental bondage: to tear you down psychologically, to dehumanize you, to strip you of your personal integrity. While being held captive by the Department of Corruptions I’ve witnessed individuals (and experienced myself) being treated as though we are robots. Robots, degraded through verbal and sometimes physical abuse as if we have no emotions. The public have no clue to the fact and matter of the unlawful treatment that is imposed on the lives of those who are incarcerated. True: for an individual to be placed behind these walls majority (not all) actually violated the law but then again; is it right that those same laws be violated by the officials in order to “correct” one for their mistakes of violating the laws?.. Is that Justice? You can’t stop the flood by pouring more water on it! No matter a persons crime the fact should not be  disregarded that “the person” is still a living soul!!!… And deserves to be treated as such. Being convicted of a crime whatever level of severity and then being​ sentenced only means that one has been exiled from society for a certain period of time in order that one develop a better mentality and respect for the law supposedly set forth to govern ones  morality, but how can a individual obtain this type of rehabilitative state when treated as if your life is worthless because of the mistakes you’ve made in the past? These particular tactics makes an individual harbor more hate and act more rebellious towards the govern-mental-system and its laws; awareness of the hypocrisy! Don’t get me wrong I am not justifying an individual’s actions who through this adversity still refuses to take the initiative to want to rehabilitate himself and also realize the destruction he is causing, not only to himself, but also to those around him. Throughout the Department of Corruption an individual is not deemed rehabilitated until he goes against his morals and principles and diminishes his integrity and dignity, what do you have totally committed yourself to doing and acting, not by the controls of your mind, but by the instructions of another “human being” just as yourself! By logic and reason how should this be considered rehabilitation when you were endowed with the same ability to choose and make decisions (freewill) just as the next person was endowed with. Certain individuals have a thirst for power, a yearn to dominate everything and everyone around them all the while disregarding the fact of infringing on the next man’s life and liberty.  I’m speaking from my mind’s eye on  the on-going matters that’s constantly being applied by the machine (in part) Georgia Department of Corruption (especially at Hayes State Prison); harassment by the enforcers (CERT Team), maltreatment and excessive use of force, daily acts of psychological disparagement is imposed in an attempt to violate one’s personal Integrity, refusal of meals, improper use of electrical immobilizer (taser), verbal threats of assault, and mainly, involuntary penal servitude. How can this corrupt Department be considered a rehabilitation center??? The type of treatment that one is subjected to is not apart of the sentencing from the judge, if so, then there would not be laws set to cover the actions of the officials!.. (In which there are). So with all this; I say to the people… Incarcerated lives matter!!! I leave as I come with,
Peace, respect, and encouragement
To the struggle

Unity in Georgia Prisons

To all comrades on lockdown or in population. Regardless of your affiliation, belief or religion this applies to all of you…

I know and overstand all that has happened over the past few years dealing with different fractions. And as you all can see things have only gotten worser & worser. All we’ve done was forced D.O.C. to implement a mental oppression program called “Tier” which is designed to break us to control us. What’s going on have begin to affect us all with their attempts to demoralize us by driving us of basic human needs. We being oppressed, suppressed, & repressed on a daily basics and we doing nothing to ameliorate our situation why? Because for number one we have no UNITY. We’ve allowed prison officials to use divide-and-conquer tactics on us and use guard brutality and the “Tier” to install fear and all we doing is helping them by oppressing each other. We worry so much about harming each other, keeping our foot on each other neck and forget him he not a part of what we apart of or he not from where we from so forget him. This type of thinking not helping us. In order to stop this imperialist system we as a whole have to be willing to put all our differences aside we gotta realize we not each other enemy the enemy go home everyday the enemy come up with more diabolical things to harm us mentally & physically. These pigs attempting to mentally incapitate us & again we helping them by looking at each other as enemies by looking down on the next man instead of uplifting him. We as a whole got to stand as one with the VOICE OF ALL we the only ones that can stop this mental, physical and emotional oppression Being administered by prison officials. Every major state have a major prison movement that stand for prisoner rights the only way we going to change GA D.O.C. we got to start our own. We have people out there in society that’s willing to help us and stand with us and get us the media attention we need.

We gotta have unity we can’t be afraid to unify with the next gang, organization, family, belief or religion.

We in prison but we still have rights..

MISUNDERSTOOD

How could they not understand? This is a question that I asked when we are forced to retaliate because justice has been prejudiced against us throughout many years, pushing us to live with so many fears due to the deep tones of internalized oppression that was passed along several generations of our ancestors, what normal person with a civilized mind hoards a hate-filled heart towards another for their cultural relations with nature that a higher source created? Despite skin color, ethnic origin, political affiliation, socio-economic status, sexual orientation or religious belief – our ultimate purpose is to live life in peace,

But through the years of political tyranny anger and power has caused us to hate one another, in depths that we’ve lost the capacity to have empathy for others who suffer from the same struggle,

The world has become a place of poverty and servitude, organized and designed so that white supremacy will forever rule, they’re consumed with the belief that all poors are entitled to unjust rewards, a ritualized tradition that prevents the majority from moving forward, this is an act of conscience conscienceness that should be considered blasphemy to the lord,

It’s sad to admit the feeling of being left out of that we’re unable to identify with those who suffer it, when the results clearly indicates that we all should begin putting up a different fight for human rights,

The land of dignity, freedom, fairness, and decency? But the system is influenced by the consideration of race that refuses to recognize all human life equally, how could you not understand a fighter of oppression? How could a person declare someone as less than human by placing them in the category of another, refusing to see them as an equal being who deserves the same respect and hospitality and equality that they want for themselves? Do the system expect the oppressed to continue living through all the domestic turmoil of this nation without putting up a fight? We’ve exhausted every available avenue for a positive solution that we hoped would’ve rectified the ugly spirit that has grip the soul of this nation, our calls have been ignored continuously, which has led to a new strategy – FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE!!! Our hands were forced so how could you not understand??

AMMUNITION

Shawty sit down and listen to me cuz I’m raw and uncut which make me the truth. Then again when you look into my eyes I am the future for the young black youth, also I have dreams for bigger and better things like Dr King.

Speaking the X of Malcolm trying not to be dirty like a falcon, to my  niggas in prison doing dead time. You gotta get up strength and elevate your mind, cuz life is not about money, sex and crimes even know we committed a crime God forgive us and hope we find the right state of mind.

Soldiers and thugs may run around beefing, killing each other for what reason and why? Slanging crack in the hood in the stormy weather, but turn around and say the white man is stealing our land raping our ladies and killing our babies. Which is true but if you turn around and FACE REALITY we gave them the power to do what they do. So go read and seek for the truth and find the belief that’s real for you, words from Westside the wild kid of the streets to speaking JEWELS for the young black youth the TRUTH.

The Black Abomination: writings from Valdosta Prison

written by a young Black anarchist: JaCorie Hinton

The Black Abomination

I the Black Race am my own enemy, for years I have brought corruption and destruction amongst my own people. Killing, stabbing, beating and abusing my own kind with the same structural image as my self Black hair, brown eyes, chocolate or caramel colored skin. Installing this illiterate and destructive behavior in our kids making this a continuous cycle embedded in my Black society like a genetic disorder. Causing the prisons to overflow with the majority of my Black people and the streets to be a place unsafe to the Black community and a war zone to the Black uneducated beings lost to jealousy, lust, envy, and greed. Making it easy to be recruited for the growing prison systems steady flow of my Black bretheren who then become lost in the White Man’s system. We are the Black Abomination a plague, sickness, a disease to our own race. We are our very own geneside and manufacturer of our own Extinction. And until we can overcome these manipulative and destructive living conditions we will always be the minority of the human existence. We are hated as a whole by Amerika and in the rest of the world, and looked upon as the Black Abomination we are are own enemy but I am still proud to say I am Black. Teach and protect our race so one day our race will live on Black Lives Matter

When Will We Come Together?

By Paul Maynor

Valdosta State Prison

As I sit in this 8×10 cell and watch spiders and ants kill and fight their own over food, I see no difference in us. Prisoners are in the same boat. As I listen to brothers kick on doors, cause harm to cellmates, argue with one another about what he had or what they were doing in society, I wonder to myself do they really know what’s going on around them? Behind these terrible walls, or their loved ones in society? Can we really call it society which means “people working together for a common purpose, companionship”? I rather use “sick world”! I just try to make sense of it all. When will we come together?

I often question – well, I won’t use “question”. I often build with the ones who are blind to what’s obvious (the prisoners). Is it really about African Americans, Hispanics, Caucasians or any other race? Or is it about the rich on one side and the poor on the other? We all are getting oppressed no matter out racial complexion. So again I ask: When will we come together?

Prison guards, a.k.a. “The Devils”, make unnecessary noises at crazy hours when they know prisoners are asleep. They shakes us down, take what they want, tear our cells up. Dogs dumping on our belongings, no new mattress, sheets, blankets or none of that, and we’re left to clean up what they’ve torn up. Only to round us up and take our anger out on each other. But yet we let them walk right out the same way they came in, untouched or unharmed with all our belongings. But when another prisoner does the same thing, and takes something from you, you’ll get it back and cause harm, maybe even be ready to catch a murder charge about it. What’s the different? I still wonder: When will we come together?

Unity is the key to everything, or am I the only one who knows that? When you have unity, you’re a threat. But why, what’s to be afraid of? We’re only coming together. I just wish and wonder, when will we come together? KKKops are killing and brutally harming individuals because of their own reasons. It’s not the rich, it’s only the poor whose getting enslaved. And yet they’re walking free, with no charges at all. But the poor kills someone, you’re “guilty until proven innocent”. The poor kills a KKKop, you’re sentenced to death. But what’s the difference? They’re both human lives. When will we come together?

We see KKKorrectional Officers slamming another prisoner’s head to the concrete. They (KKKorrectional Officers) tell us to face the fence. And what do we do? You wouldn’t have guessed in a million years: we face the fence. But you see a prisoner doing the same thing, you aid and assist the prisoner then. Why won’t you help him when he’s being oppressed? But you’d rather leave him/her to fight an army by themselves. When will we come together?

We watch another prisoner get slaughtered like a pig in a butcher’s shop. Officers take hours to get there, jogging or walking to the action, while someone’s life is on the line. And yet, an officer gets punched in the face, every other officer on duty runs to the action in a matter of seconds with no questions asked, beats you and hog ties you like a pig, and takes you to the hole and beats you again. Someone gets injured in a poor neighborhood, an ambulance takes forever to get there. But some of the same actions take place in a wealthy neighborhood, and they get there in record-breaking time. When will we come together?

Only difference between male prisoners and female prisoners are the sex types. We both go through the same thing, we’re being oppressed. Black lives aren’t the only lives that matter, all lives matter. I just don’t understand it, we will war against each other who feels as if they deserve respect, but we won’t war against the oppression, who clearly disrespects, along with destroys us mentally and physically. When will we stand up? When will we come together?

How can you say “In God We Trust” and believe in god and turn right around and do devilish things to god’s children? Is it because we sinned? Does that make them better than us? No! God said himself that no one is sin-free. Still I wonder: When will we come together?

If you’ve seen “Planet of the Apes” (not the old one but the one they brought back out), it’s showing you the same exact thing we’re going through today. Only difference is that they used unity and some even sacrificed themselves. We did not, and still to this day we still are not in no type of unity. They stood up for what they thought and believed, what was right, which was freedom. Free from being oppressed. It’s a message that a lot of people around the world missed. They were against each other at first, then Ceasar brought everybody together and explained in a way they could understand what “unity” was, and in the end they were at peace, mentally and physically. Still the billion dollar question that I have heard no answer to, but yet a bunch of negative people say we can’t do it, or it won’t work, but no one has taken the initiative to even try to do what so many oppressors are threatened by – and that is unity. When will we come together?

Question for the people: why is the lowest amount of money you can’t spend nowhere brown, and no other color? You think slavery has really been abolished, huh? IT’S TIME WE CAME TOGETHER. Fight for what’s right!

Last Stop Valdosta State Prison

My name is Aron Rexhepi. I’m writing this story based on facts. Valdosta State Prison is mistreating inmates like myself and has shown deliberate indifference to medical needs.

On Feb 26, 2016 I was brought to VSP from Georgia State Prison, Tier 2 program. On March 15, 2016 I placed a sick call to see a dentist. Due to my gums and tooth was cutting into my gums and bleeding. By March 25, I still did see no one. And my face started to deform due to bleeding and swollen gums from my tooth cutting in to my jaw bone.

On 5/12/16 I wrote a warden to seek some type of help. After, no response from the so-called warden. I placed an emergency grievance on 5/18/16, however there was also no response to that. As I was sitting in K-1 lockdown unit Tier 2 program, I began hitting the door yelling for help, crying. Finally after 35 to 45 minutes of nothing but kicking the door, a sgt comes to me and he began hitting my door, saying “You like this? You like this?” After 9 min of his foolishness, he seen me crying and said “What’s going on?” like he sees nothing wrong with my face. I tell him that I’m in need of a dentist doctor, and that my face is swollen and that I could not eat or sleep, and that I have placed 3 sick calls and no one has come to see about me. He then states “Well big guy, VSP does not have a dentist” like I was asking him are they hiring or in need of a dentist as a worker. He then also said “You’re not doing to die, it’s just a little pain with some swelling. And if you keep hitting this door, I’m going to phase you back and make you do 9 more months in Tier 2.”

I then began to write Ms. Woods, a dept warden of care and treatment, on 5/5/16 and 5/26/16. Still no response. I then wrote Warden Mariy S Allen for the 3rd time. This time I was pleading with him in my request, asking him to take me to a prison with right medical/dental care. Still no response.

On June 6, 2016 I was seen by a dentist at VSP after waiting for 4 months of nothing but pain. Ms Dr. Crawford stated “How long you been like this?” talking about my face. I stated “For months”. She then did an x-ray and said “I got to do what’s called an emergency surgery”. The surgery took her 2 hours. She said “If you would have waited 1 more month you might have lost all your back teeth!”

Also just 3 weeks before I was seen by Dr. Crawford, an LPN saw me and tols me “Damn, who hit you?” I told her “No one hit me, it’s my back tooth”. Then she states to the officer “It’s not his tooth, he’s lying. And if it is his teeth, he’s out of luck. We don’t even have a dentist.”

Just after the surgery on June 10th, 2016, I saw Ms Dr. Crawford again. This time I asked her why I was talking funny and why my tongue was numb and why my speech has changed. She stated “I might have damaged some nerves. But I still need to do a 2nd surgery.” I then told her “Ms. Crawford, you must not have slept last night, or must have bumped your head real hard on something” looking at her with a crazy look. She then stated “It won’t hurt, and it will take only 15 minutes.” I stated “No thank you, I’m okay…”

The grievance dated 5/18/16 was responded to on Jun 26, 2016 only to state by mr. Allen that at the time, VSP was without a dentist, however you were seen 10 times by medical, you could have addressed this issue at any time.

It is crazy how people in prison get mistreated. Inmates are hopeless and must kill themselves when inmates don’t get the right mental health or medical care. And it’s sad how a human treats another human like a dog. As and inmate, I always ask myself “Damn, am I going to Hell for all the wrong I did?” But some times say to myself “No, I’m not. I have been judged my a human, to be placed in a place where it’s like Hell.” Then also ask myself where are prison workers that were in prison? Where are they going it’s got to be a worse place for them.
