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!!

Death due to medical neglect at Georgia State Prison; coverup by officials

March 2016 I was housed a Georgia State Prison my roommate was Jacorey Barber. Around the beginning of March he became ill and was having a hard time breathing. He filed a sick call which take from 7 to 10 days to get seen. Once he got seen he was told he develop asthma at age 35 and was given a asthma inhaler his condition worsen at times he was so winded he would walk to sell door to get his tray and have to lean on the wall to catch his breath. He put another sick call in and went back to medical instead of doing a thorough check-up they changed his inhalers and supposedly gave him a stronger inhaler and cough syrup and some type of pill for a cold. Wednesday March 30 our shower day he was so week he almost passed out officer Howard our excourt officer ask was he okay he could barely talk. I told her he needed medical because he had trouble breathing and haven’t eaten since Friday. She call Lieutenant Shumake and told him everything he stated tell Barber to do a sick call. (Keep in mind it takes 7 to 10 days and you still not going to get adequate treatment.) But after being refused treatment he laid down and I did the same I woke for dinner tray and tried to wake him to get his tray but he was dead. It took from 5 to 8 minutes to get officer back in dorm because trays came at shift change. Officer stood in the door like 10 minutes thinking we playing before calling someone. Sergeant Walker came and stood another 10 minutes before he decided to open cell and come in. He claimed he felt a pulse and started doing C.P.R. He stopped and call for medical and told them it was an emergency about 15 to 20 minutes later medical still didn’t come he got on the radio snapping telling him he need medical right now. Finally a old lady come and really she didn’t know what to do. Sergeant walker and a new officer took turns do C.P.R. while she stood around. They finally put him on the stretcher and left. They put me in the cages in back of dorm and kept me there like 4 or 5 hours. Somebody from D.O.C. came and basically threatened me he told me about a list of questions and answers he had and what to say and what not to say and it’s been some inmates that didn’t follow instructions and ended up like Jacory Barber. After doing this I was placed in a different cell and the following week the mental health counselor Miss Humphries came and talked to me and told me he died from a heart attack I told her I don’t think so and explain why I said so. The next week she said Jacory Barber mom wanted to hear from me and she said for Miss Humphrey to give me her address but she forgot it. Before she could bring it back I was transferred down here. Can you please contact Miss Humphrey at Georgia State Prison and get that info for me so I can let his mom know what really happened. Someone needs to look into how many young inmates have mysteriously died at G.S.P.

I am a victim of this KKKorrections Department. “Like criminals they lock us in cages, some niggas some stars once you put them on stages.”
How can that be? When our rights are violated on a daily basis. The trick to wear down the man mind, by making him think that it’s cool to be mistreated or disrespected by staff. It’s cool to not write a grievance to inform someone of the abuse. The key to wearing down one’s mental state, you must first make one feel less of a man by taking away our food!! Mail and pictures. Denying a man to go to a Rec Pen/yard to relieve himself of stress. To put ignorant inmates around to always create commotion and confusion. While staff is only here for short periods of time, an inmate is stuck to deal with horrified reality. Courage motivates me to stand up and believe in myself to endure this hardship. Some would say is a mental warfare and only the strong survive. How much can one man really handle? And who made the KKKorrections Department a judge on how much mental anguish one must accept in order to be deemed a contender in the mental Championship Warfare League? They would consider me a rebellious negro because when it was their turn to fuck me I didn’t take the penetration smoothly, I wiggled and tried to fight back which caused them an upset in their regular fucking. Every time an opportunity comes available one must have strength to muster on. Why stop and pretend to play dead? When one can continue running to find hope and freedom. It’s better to die on your feet than to live on your knees, means why settle for the normal or what they call normal when I can wander free. We must all use our inner self and realize the way we view things, do things are called habits or patterns. It was a norm way back when to accept the things one wouldn’t change. With 2020 approaching we must stop this Poor way of thinking, Poor way of doing things, Poor way of living we must stand for ourselves. We must aid and assist our brothers and sisters. We must understand that we didn’t ask to be here, but since we are, we should make the stay comfortable. Why settle for less? Why not achieve more? The sky’s the limit and that’s a true statement. In this Urban Jungle there is always another jungle out there, another set of grass that we have not stepped on or partaking of it’s fruits. No more habitual living. No more habitual way of thinking. Shoot for the stars and if failed you still land amongst the clouds. Be on the lookout for my ROOT Recollecting Our Own True selves thesis.

“Only as One Will We Defeat Our Adversaries”

Revolutionary greetings to all

My comrade and I sit a mere few cells apart from one another in the belly of the beast, contemplating on how we can set up a solid and sound infrastructure amongst my peers to overcome any and all kinds of adversity set before us to simply dilute our strike for betterment as one. You see we are just two of the mass going through oppressive malpractices being used in the tyrannical Georgia courts and penal system. Our human rights are constantly violated by the maladministration at Georgia State Prison in Reidsville, GA. Not only are we fighting the charlatans of justice but also the guile quislings in sheep clothing as well. After speaking with a few peers about taking a stand many became afraid of just the mere thought! Numbers became a big factor because the machine is made of many but it is our one common enemy. My comrads and I are working towards reincarnating the U.N.A.T.M movement (United Nations Against The Machine). For we know only as one will we defeat our adversaries. The odds are stacked against us this we know and many of my fellow peers question our mission with a concious of complete failure and nothing getting done about the maltreatment we are witnessing and face. Prominently, their main fear is being placed deeper within their confinement inside one of the many torture chambers guised as a step down program known as the ”Tier Program”; All of which my comrade and I have discussed and forseen as a probable future fate for ourselves. But to those we say this, at some point in time sacrifices have to be made in order for you to prevail.

There are statistics, research, and victims/witnesses that can plea the maltreatment and abusive authority that managed this industry of human servitude for capital. This can be a complaint of the victims and their supporters that will never cease if our endeavors as willful contestors continue to fall short caused by our inferior beliefs about the road of tribulation and long suffering we must first stride across. We have to continue concentrating more on devising efficient solutions to work in our favor. Realize the inalienable right to revolt and grieve any form of goverment that is found guilty operating under corruption. Georgia prisoners must recognize the Nation wide sacrifices, movements and changes other states and our comrades are making to bring justice to our unjust court and penal system. Exposure to media outlets, study groups about our rights as humans but most of all there must be a unified struggle against this repressive system within the system of policy. We lack courageous and solid solidarity in the Georgia penitentiary.

The U.N.A.T.M. (United Nations Against the Machine) was an official calling to end frivilous Quarrels between the common Georgia prisoners of war. Thus, as the movement proves to be more sufficient than the defective tier program many promoters/members of the U.N.A.T.M were then placed on the ”Tier.” For trying to bring peace and unity behind the enemies’ line. I have documentation of the machine repression toward the movement(s) of prisoner solidarity. On the facebook profile (Type in the search box: Vick Colbert or Mgdvick@yahoo.com) pictures displaying classified as State Secrets. Stamped and sealed under the Georgia Central Intelligence Unit (CIU). This is factual evidence that the system of institutional genocide grows and supports prison on prisoner violence and overall the failure to rehabilitate the prisoners of its system. This capitalistic industry justifies its means with the detrimental end of our lives. We as souljas in this struggle challenge all our fellow comrades to come as one. Join the nation wide front against the prisonercrats and their criminal injustice enterprise. We are the problem now let’s be the solution as the revolution!

Chains of Suppression: Thoughts on Black Liberation from Prison

A Reason

Place the world under a temporary observation. There’s constant motion. Nothing stagnates but the mind. Evolution. The world revolves around one word. Progression. So how is it that we as Afro Americans are the primary race culturally regressing? Let’s dissect this. Despite a subversive government, we are the majority in the prison system in a lot of states. there is an exceeding number of us provided with government assistance. There are more of us jobless than anyone. We hold the majority when speaking of povertization. For every one of us that excels, three of us revert. I will be admitted into the prison system, I will become a victim of violence (racial genocide), and I will fall victim to poverty. When I listen to the radio, I hear artist advertising regression, embedding in our hearts that nefarious activity is acceptable, influencing avaricious mindsets to attain everyday life. In this modern day society, black indicates aggression. Black installs fear. But in reality, black resembles power. This is the reason government officials placed COINTELPRO into action. To progress, we must travel to our past briefly, to identify where we derived from. This exempts historical amnesia from our culture.

After the Emancipation Proclamation, blacks in the South became free, but with no way to acquire financial stability due to Jim Crow laws being placed in effect. Jim Crow laws were specifically placed in effect to recreate financial circulation. Blacks/slaves did everything. So when the document was signed, the economy roughly crashed due to the fact that whites were devoid the knowledge required to execute the primary job that preserved the economy. We sustained that knowledge. We were the essential factor (roads, railroads, canals, bridges). We were the individuals who constructed these. So the Jim Crow laws were activated impeding us from obtaining jobs. Sharecropping was produced. With us being so far behind and free for the first time in foreign territory we were coerced into this form of legal justifiable slavery. We had nothing, but our families needed taken care of. Blockades.

Fast forward to today. We have blockades placed in our path today, but we attain the vehemence to overcome suppression. This starts with self. Dissecting our actions and utilizing our position in society to enlighten the unaware. Refuse to subsist of the mentally enslaved. Unite as one and assist. Not oppress. Educate. Inform. Our worst enemy is self. Many search for a reason. That progression be the reason.

Psychological Warfare

When it comes to the government I am a firm believer that they have mastered how to place a circumference around the African American societies mental functionalism. This explains our unawareness and some’s nonchalant behavior towards the realities of oppression. We are dealing with an intricate system that can be undisputedly disproved if only we weren’t suffering from historical amnesia. Check this. Studies from Carl Rogers show that we are born humanistic, stressing that humans have enormous potential for personal growth only if the mind is utilized in the correct way. He emphasizes the importance of free will and humans ability to make choices. So why do we fail to utilize this God given talent? Why do we fail to see the mental strain the government has on us? Why do we fail to see that we are involved in a psychological war with those whom we allow to govern us?

Our minds are being toyed with. We are independent variables in a “true experiment”. We are part of a control group and which we are used as pawns. People do not realize that the government utilizes the double-blind technique as a form of manipulation on both parties. Theirs and ours. Some of those who work for the government are unaware of the negative infestations placed upon their mind. The government controls all. For example the right to election. No matter who the president is things will happen exactly how the legislative, executive, and judicial branch plan. The right to election is simply a psychological manipulation tactic which is used in a placebo effective form. We are just unaware and lack the motivation to seek truism when it’s clearly in our face.

The way we are raised and oppressed is a blockade to mental independancy where we grow an ecological view of perception of freedom which becomes an innate mechanism for generations to come. The government uses classical and respondent conditioning us to manipulate us into thinking we are free, when in all actuality, we are in a harnessed environment. This is why we give an unconditioned response as a natural reflex to those who seek to expose the truth. We must learn to think for ourselves. We are placed in a controlled society for experimentation so it will be easier to rule out extraneous and distracting variables to manipulate all for capitalistic reasons. Certain things are placed upon us at as a test to measure our intelligence, anxiety, and leadership abilities in which any who shows any signs of radicalism shall be exterminated per COINTELPRO. A form of justifiable homicide.

Obstacles are constantly thrown our way to suppress the African race and confine an excessive number of us to povertization. Many begin to languish and turn to mind altering substances such as depressants and stimulants, which turns individuals physical or psychologically dependent for a sense of motivation. Now one has to gain the strength and support to detoxify theirself just to regain stable consciousness in a world where we are coerced to not be conscious at all. Now ain’t that some shit…

All in all, we are under what I like to call “involuntary political hypnosis” they have us in an involuntary altered state of conscious where we actually believe we are being governed in a righteous manner. We are truly victims of post hypnotic suggestions.

Relinquishing to the oppressive tactics of the government and our subversive minds is no longer an option. No longer will we commit any faux pas. We will become coherent and exert our minds in a productive manner. We must equip ourselves for war, for it is in full effect. Proper preparation prevents poor performance…

Chains of Suppression

What is the meaning of life? Don’t confuse this with your individual purpose of life. I witness so many, roaming about in the world they don’t understand. The Black man incoherently searching for his place. Involving ones self with groups that embrace racial genocide, unconsciously limiting their lifespan, but influencing the youth to embrace this lifestyle as their common ground. The conscious few limit their task to a petite group, but we retain an abundance of knowledge that must be expanded. I survey our youth traveling a road that leads to nowhere. Then I glimpse at their mental guidance. An immature mind conducting an immature mind, will not mature. It is the obligation of us conscious few to surmount the task of transforming the incredulous, nullifying any defeatist. To transgress, we must believe and possess a Herculean heart. Our challenge is to reactivate a cohesion that’s been obsolescent in our people for so long, making us permissible to tyranny. Empower the minds of our women. Unveil the significance of their existence, encouraging them to flourish from their atavistic ways. Our women are our support system. To subsist as a non-conformist of racial equality is an act of surrealism that will keep us inferior to an oppressive hierarchy. It is mandatory that we act as a as vanguards to conciliate the masses. This is the only way to reconstruct. Or situation is mutable. The fact that we are cognizant means our state of suppression optional. Let’s unbreak these chains.
Self Demoralization of a Durable Race

The View
Growing as a young Black man, I’ve been priviledged to obtain a liberated mind and view the world from a bird’s eye view. For the last few years, an immense amount of my concentration has been directed towards dissecting our race and culture. Alot of individuals blame our culture for barely maintaining and a lot of individuals have become content with just getting by. What happened? We derive from a powerful background. People who sacrifice their lives and well-being to ensure that we, as a people, gravitate towards success. Frederick Douglass, Booker T. Washington, Dr. King, Malcolm X. These individuals became colleagues of the same vision. The betterment of the people. So whom are we to devaluate and ravage the path these leaders have set forth? How do we modify our belief systems to make a drastic change in our communities? The answer is one mind at a time. But first, allow me to ramify a few of these problems.

Deceiving leaders and our youth. The primary influence on our race today is the hip-hop culture. Majority of us just recite the lyrics without deciphering a message or picture they are portraying. Their lyrics promote and nihilistic lifestyle, suggesting malicious and licentious behavior, depraving our youths minds, influencing them to embrace regression. We allow this to be embedded in our kids heads during their primitive years, so they grow to forbid the fruit of knowledge. Do our leaders realize their strength? Do they realize the mental restrictions they are placing on the African American youth? Is it that they are ignorant of this, or do they just not care? We become so engaged in negativity for self gratification, that we forget our every action is constantly being observed by our shadow. Our children are a reflection of us. The world is a complex matrix that will take a collective whole to progress and cause a mass impact. The world is in constant evolution. And the more we become mentally and trapped the further we will regress.

Preparing Ourselves

Our minds have been submitted to the point our primary goal is oblivious amongst us. We must govern our own minds and quit allowing negativity to pollute our infrastructure. Quit praising materialistic things. Other ethnicities make a mockery of our people. They realize that we are involved in an internal Civil War and they capitalize on the

Prison staff medically neglect a stabbing victim

You know I was in the room with Elmo up in G 3#26 before me and Mel Mel got in the room with each other. the same day they move us I ask Srg. Blackey who I was going in the room with and he told me Powell. I told him I’m not going in there because I’m not Crip and he said that that don’t mean nothing and I still have to go in the room with him… So the next day I went to class and I told the teacher CoII Flower how’s they goin to take me out the room with they had in my file COD and put me in the room with a Crip and he told me he don’t know why they did that but he will let somebody know… So that weekend we had got to fighting I had three bite marks from him and he had done poke me in my eye. I could not see out of it like 3 day so I wrote a sick call the same day it happen. so after we got done fighting we “call peace treat” I was goin to put him on the door shower day so I didn’t, I kept my word as a Muslim and a man that I won’t do nothing to him and he did the same but he broke it…

Okay Nov 21, I had been sleep all day so about 3:00 p.m. he had asked me to play chess and I did. so I heard so I heard pill call out there so I stop playing, look up under the door with the mirror to see who was doing pill call. Off. Taylor. That’s when I felt something hit my head. I said to myself to know this nigga ain’t just hit my, so when I got to my feet we started fighting. Well I thouhg we was fighting til I seen the knife in his hand. that when I realize I got stab. I had grabbed to the knife and tried to take it but I cut my right hand up 5 place. then I heard Off. Taylor at the door with pill call I told him that I been stab and he call the code… When Srg. Turner come he told Powell, Mel-Mel to give him the knife an he replyed get him out of here or I’mma kill him. So Srg. Turner sprayed mace in the room and I told Srg. to don’t spray know more I will make sure he get the knife. so I told Mel-Mel to give him the knife cuz he done already jammed so he gave it to him. When I got down the step to ER they said I would have to go to the free world. I got hit 10 times in my head, one time in my left hand, one time on top of my right hand and wrist, got cut 5 time inside my right hand, 2 time in the face, 5 time in my back, and a lot more other places but the wasn’t deep, and 2 bite marks…

When I got to the free world I got 22 staple in my head to slow down the bleeding so I could get an X-ray and a cat scan but I was losing too much blood. so when I was getting my X-ray they did my chest first after they don’t that I told them I feel light headed and I’m hot so they told me to sit down, then I got up and they was doing my side my right side. and that when I had went out. I don’t know I long I was out to when I came back, that’s when they put an IV in me and put like 25 or 30 stitches in me. the free world had that me that I’m not supposed to be walking right now because one of the places I got stabbed on my back hit my spine bone.

I didn’t stop bleeding to five hours later… Than when I got back here at like 10:00 or 11:00 p.m. that night Cap. Jackson took me to ER to get check to see if anything was wrong and I was alright. But the nurses didn’t do nothing but just sat there and look at me. Didn’t check my blood pressure or nothing and when Cap. Jackson ask them where to put my they said they don’t know. Before I left the free world they told Srg. Gordon to let the nurses know to watch me because I lost a whole lot of blood an to check my blood pressure two or three time a day. So Cap. COII Brooke or Rook to put me in F3#15 and when I got here in F3#15 the next morning sunday Nov 22 I went to medical to get my blood pressure checked and other thing. but when I came back from the free world they sent some med for me to take that night for pain and I didn’t get it. So after I got check I ask for the pain med and he told me that I should have got it but I didn’t because the nurses that night didn’t do nothing. Didn’t bring nothing, left me for dead so he had to got out his way to get me something. he said that I suppose to get check up on for the next 30 days or so, but they didn’t do nothing at all. I had to write a sick call just to get my staples and stitches took out…

Tier Program Concerns and Issues: a list of abuses from the inside

  • Sanitation – We are in a cell for 9 months – years at a time. Our rooms is so filthy due to us not being able to properly clean our cells. We are not allowed to use the broom, mop tolitebrush or even given a wash rag to wipe with. They (G.S.P) do not provide you with none of these items to clean with. We can not flush our own tolits. (Is flushing my tolit a privilege? This program is lost of all privileges not rights.) So if my roommate use the bathroom and nobody is in the dorm for hours at a time (which happens all the time) we have to sit in our room and inhale each others waste. It’s so many different germs and bacteria in a human waste that can lead to serious health problems. We are not allowed to put anything over the tolit to try to block the smell. (Not even while eating) not having a tolit button is very inhumane. Being that we cannot flush our own tolet the waste sits in the tolit for hours at a time which causes bacteria to build up. And being we aren’t able to properly clean our tolits (again not even allowed to use the tolit brush) sooner or later we are gone to get sick. According to S.O.P (Standard Operation Procedure) we are supposed to be allowed to properly clean our cells on the regular….

    We have a tray box (not the hand cuff flap) that is so filthy that it don’t make no sense at all. So much rust and dirt is caked up in it. The rest along can cause long term health problems. Rust and dirt always gets in our food when the trays is being place in this filthy box. I have never seen these boxes cleaned in the years I have been here. We can not open and clean them our selfs. Showers are never clean (never) one dorm holds 52 inmates. So I have to use the “already dirty showers” as 51 other inmates. Just on the tour program along I have witness so many inmates catch scabies and other infections due to us not being able to clean properly, Have the showers cleaned or have clean cloths.

    Lundry only goes out twice a week (supposed to anyway) Tuesday and Thursday. But when we send it out we don’t get it back sometimes up to two weeks. Sheets and blankets never get cleaned. We have to wear jumpsuits which hardly ever get cleaned and exchanged. We have to wear the same jumpsuit for months at a time…. We have to be inspection ready to take a shower (which is not in the S.O.P) if not we don’t shower. That’s not a privilege. That should be treated the same as our trays. Do we got to be inspection ready to eat? To get mail? To get cases from the law library? Ect…

    We don’t have proper ventilation. Can’t even open and close all windows at will. The ventilation system has never been clean. The cells are bug and rat infested. We never have our room sprayed for bugs, rats, ect… We cannot shave because they don’t give us no cleaning solution to clean the clippers with after the next man use them.

  • Physical health – the tier S.O.P states that we are supposed to get the same quality and amount as general population. That’s not the case. We are not getting what general population is getting. They only put just enough food on there so you won’t starve. The portion on the food trays is way below standards (based on a 2000 calorie diet) which include juice, milk and whatever else we supposed to have. We not even allowed to exercise properly because they take our yard away. Per S.O.P we are supposed to get five (5) hours a week unless security issues. The staff is so lazy that they don’t want to run showers and yard so they take our yard away. They take away the only hour we get outside our cells. The only hour we get to exercise. We did we do so wrong that we not allowed to maintain our physical health? Even high max security inmates gets a hour a day. It’s supposed to be 23 hour lockdown not 24/7 (23 and 1, not 24 and none) the water is contaminated. We got to be in the cell for 9 months or more without no proper exercise or clean water to drink. The water smells so bad which shows the pipe system have not been flushed or cleaned in years. No sprinklers in our cells. No emergency buttons.
  • Rehabilitation – the tier program is designed to rehabilitate, correct and make you a better person. It hurts you more than it helps you in so many ways. For example, the tier program do not offer any programs that will better you accept the O.U.T program. What about the ones that been back here for years and people who they not gone let out right now and the one’s who only lockdown due to a validation made by the system. The people who haven’t had a DR in months or years? The people administration is failing to let out due to “old” history or whatever reason. The people who is validated GoodFellas and others who been back here for years. How can they complete their case plans? How can they change? If you back here for months/years and the administration not letting you out for whatever reason, you shouldn’t be offered some type of beneficial programs? How can they make parole or complete the programs that is mandated by the parole board and case plan? How can you lock so many people down for so long and not provide them with these programs and education? Do I lose my right or choice to change and rehabilitate? Is thats what the tier program about? I can’t take these certain classes I need to be consider for parole or a transitional center? R-SAP? I cant get my G.E.D? I cannot take MRT, thinking for a change, motivation for change, Matrix recover family violence? Ect… That is mandated by the parole board because of the affiliation the system have me as or because of my old history. Because I got into “one fight” in the past? Or because I got two or three or even five DRs 11 months ago for failure to follow instruction? I can’t better myself, educate myself or strive for change because of mistakes I made so long ago? This is supposed to be about changing, rehabilitation and correcting right? It’s an unfair program. If my roommate is not ready for inspection, but I am fully dress, locker box like it supposed to be, bed made up and standing at attention, we both get punished. Both get drop back down to phase-1. Both cannot take a shower. That along leads to problems. How am I being held accountable for someone’s else actions? Am I supposed to make his bed? Am I supposed to put his cloths on for him? Am I supposed to argue with him about it which gone lead to a fight. Is that is what the program is trying to do? It’s unfair. A trap.
  • Double jeopardy/Triple jeopardy – We are getting punished for the same DR’s at least 2-3 times. First (1st) we receive a DR for the charge, which leads to a 4 dollar fine and store, package and visitation restriction. Second (2nd) for that same DR (same exact) we will be placed on tier-1 program. Third (3rd) even after completing the program successfully, we are recommended to Tier II phase 1 and the reason being is gone have the same exact DR/infraction that you just lost your visitation, store and package privilege for, fine 4 dollars and sent to tier 1. Now tier-2? 9-months “and” once you get done with Tier-2 you have to go “back” two Tier-1 again. All for the same DR’s.

    Not to mention this phase 3 plus (3+) phase that is not included in the S.O.P. What are the requirements? The law/rules (S.O.P) is not backing this phase like phases 1, 2, and 3. Without no law/rules that mean they can just put you on 3 plus whenever they feel like it. Up to 5 more times. That’s 15 extra months added to the 9-months you already did. All because the administration don’t like you. We can read the rules and guidelines for they have to follow on everything else except face 3 plus? Something is not right….

    The appeal process if unfair itself. The appeal (according to S.O.P) is supposed to go to the counselor to forward to Atlanta (facility director) not to the warden. from the counselor to Atlanta, why does it have to go from counselor to warden and administration then Atlanta? (That’s not S.O.P) How do we know our appeal reaches Atlanta as we wrote it? How do we know it’s getting properly investigated? It do not state why your appeal is being denied.

  • Torture act (and unconstitutional) – The tier-2 program is clearly a torture Act (which is unconstitutional) we are being placed in a cell with a roommate for atleast 9-months- thats years at a time.  without no personal property or hygiene. Not allowed to watch the news, not allowed to receive newspapers, clean our cells, eat properly (like the general population) not allowed to properly exercise, read or educate our selfs. No clean cloths on a regular, no decent water to drink, no pictures, not even nothing to sit on like a stool. No tolit buttons (can’t even flush our own tolit) can’t practise our religions properly. We only allowed 1 Bible or 1 Qu’ran. What about the other religions? What about the religions that require you to read several books a day? The ones that require proper exercise? Stretching and meditation? Law library access? We only allowed 2 cases at a time. How can I really study my case like this?

    This program is a torture act. This program not only takes away your privileges, but also your rights.

    G.S.P Tier program

It should be called The Torture Program: Tier Program denies education, sanitation, food, yard time

The Tier program at G.S.P Is not helping us mentally or physical at all. G.S.P Administration is violating all of our rights by not lettin us take G.E.D or any other program that are mandate for alot of us to make parole because we are on the tier. the program is designed for rehabitation. The Administration at G.S.P is using the tier for unusual punishment and physical torture.

we are place in a two man cell without a tolit button. If one of us use the restroom we have to smell each other feces because the officer is not in the dorm to flush our tolits on the regular base’s as they are suppose to. Sometimes we go hour’s without our tolit’s been flush so that’s inhumane to our health.

We don’t receive any clean matiral at all. i been on the tier at G.S.P in room G-3-12 since 8-26-15 and I have not receive a broom mop or any chemial to clean myself at all. Today is 12-15-15. The S.O.P state’s that we are to receive chemial on daily base’s.

They feed us through a box that is fill with rust and other decay that can cause food poison are other illness. The S.O.P state’s that we are suppose to receive 2800 calorie’s every meal. we do not get half of that. We do not received juice wit any meal at all. i been in the tier since Aug-26-15 i have not been outside but 3 time’s because i would not give up my tray’s. The office give us a choice “yard are tray” that’s how bad they are treatin us back here. but the S.O.P state’s that we are to receive one hour a day which we do not get at all. The Administration at G.S.P is corrupted all the way around. We ain’t got no kind of win or help from anyone back here on the tier. We stay lock down 24 hour’s a day 365. The tier program is designed for rehibitation not for torture and weight loss.

The system is going against all laws and poity’s that was implement to start the tier up. G.S.P Administration are comein up with they own law’s to use against us back here on the tier. Like (phase 3 plus) i have the S.O.P on the tier and it do not say anythin about (phase 3 plus) or that we can’t receive book, packged’s, are other readin matiral. You have some of us that have been back here 2 to 5 years without any contact wit outer world at all, G.S.P Administration is usein the tire program as a torture program it should be called (The Torture Program) the (Torture Act unconstitutional) the Tier Program is a Torture act which according to the USA constitutional is unlawful and not allowed in the United State of U.S.A. so we as a collectiet hold on the Tier at G.S.P are seeking understanding and a hold lot of help.
