Georgia prisoners this is your comrade blaqman seer behind enemy lines at Hayes state prison. the time is now for us as a whole to come as one and grieve the involuntary pennal servitude and poor sources for rehabilitation in the Georgia state penal system. the ” working against the recidivisim act” is an act that set guidelines for prisoner payments under o.c.g.a 42.5.120-125 in compliance with the u.s.c. title 18 section 1726 prison industrail enhancement ( pie) certification program. If by right we can be paid the by right we must fight. the officers here at Hayes state prison are actually advising resistance against the corrupt order of repression at the prison. warden sparryberry is aware of the maltreatment and malpractices that is being implemented. who can society blame, the creation of disorder or its creator? the logical answer to the hidden truth behind the reasoning of Georgia prison industry. slavery for the oligarchs. I speak the truth when I say a indigent being, being force to commit criminal acts to survive who only works with the means provided by the hiearchy. we work 7 days a week without pay for 10 hours at the least and our oblige incentives are turned into privileges. self reliance is to get it by the means in which are available and necessary. we are force to think like criminals being that the order of control is criminalize to. all power to the struggle! we must realize there is no justice it is just us
On November 11 and 21, 2008 in Muscogee county of Columbus, GA, two armed robberies took place. Police arrested several people, charging them all with armed robbery, assault, and a host of other charges. Although every witness said Ladarious Colbert was not one of the perpetrators of the robbery, the court would not allow his case to be separated from the others, Richard and Raimone Boynton. Victims of the November 11 robbery of Little Ceasers, Sade Williams and Anet Montgomery, both stated at trial that Colbert was not the perpetrator who comitted the robbery.
Colbert’s attorney failed to file a motion for the cases to be separated, interview the witnesses, prepare a defense, or ask for a continuance so he would have time to prepare. He later testified that he had failed to provide adequate assistance; it is highly unusual for an attorney to admit that his assistance was ineffective.
Colbert was convicted in October 2009 and sentenced to 25 years, to serve 13, without parole.
In a violation of professional ethics and the law, the then District Attorney who tried the case (now a defense attorney), David Helmick, spoke with witnesses ahead of time and got them to testify against Colbert, coaching them on what to say. Colbert’s co-defendant Jasmine Arrington and two voluntary state witnesses Demarco Jones and Nigel Towler each cooperated in exchange for a hope of benefit. Co-defendent Jasmine Arrington testified against Colbert, and denied under oath that there was any deal between her and the DA. But after Arrington’s testimony and Colbert’s 11-count conviction, her case was transferd to the juvenile jurisdiction and she was given probation, even though her crime was a “seven deadly felony” with a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years. Another co-defendent, Demarco Jones, testified that the DA had not offered to reduce his sentence in exchange for his testimony against Colbert, yet the attorney asked the court for leniency in his sentencing for his “cooperation and testimony”. Before Colbert’s trial Jones had been sentenced six years to serve four for an aggarvated battery conviction in Feburary 2009. After Colbert’s conviction in October 2009, Jones was released on a “supersedes appeal bond” and remained out until the complete termination of his 6-year sentence on March 14th, 2014. All proposals of lenincy were made by Helmick, who at trial had denied any consideration or agreement of a deal.
In a hearing in May 2013, Helmick could not sufficiently rebut the accusation that he had coached the witnesses. He and his entire office was removed from the case and replaced with the Griffin Judicial Circuit’s DA. Colbert argued that he should be given a new trial because deals made between the DA and witnesses had not been revealed to the defense as they are legally required to be.
In June 2014 Colbert’s motion for a new trial was given a hearing. The judge, Ron Mullins, was supposed to rule on the hearing within six weeks, but Colbert waited in prison for over two years before Mullins finally rejected the motion, denying a new trial. Colbert made an appeal to a superior court, which if it succeeds would allow him a new trial.
In the seven years Colbert has waited in prison, he has been active in efforts to improve prison conditions, protest mistreatment, and encourage an end to gang violence. He has networked with prisoners and published newsletters and articles urging unity among gangs and prisoners so that they can face their real enemy, the prison and justice system that aims to treat them as slaves.
Colbert took the judge’s rejection of his motion for a new trial in stride, saying, “I take the denial as motivation. The more injustice the courts of Muscogee County commits to keep me confined, the greater the reward of justice will be. In due time every criminal is punished by righteous fate, your oppression is the fuel to my drive and determination.”

The whips have been exchanged but at the end of each day I’m still a slave. The shackles have been removed but I’m still a slave. Free labor where they work me for my food; my wages are paid dues… It’s called my debt to society but my acknowledgment of my subjugation remains denied. They lie to me and my people and say that it will be alright but it’s been over 100 years and there’s still no light in sight. Punished if I fight and a fool if I don’t. I just pray when the bell rings that I don’t choke. I smoke to give me hope and sleep so that I cannot think. To cloud out the life of a slave without chains…
I dream strange things but none of them seem to set me free, these visions of death I see only bring me closer to the God-I-Be. Because I’m a slave that’s free! A slave without chains, that’s me… That’s we; so how can a king be at peace? With Willie Lynch’s divide and conquer still combating me? They worked me for free and say; “good job!” Damn!! Suicide is so hard. It’s what they want. To break me and make me, and I fight and fight with no avail, why must they rape me? The slave without chains I be… That’s me, that’s me, that’s we; our enemy is longer massah, but it’s we. The prison is our plantation. The menu is our slop. Work the detail or rot in a cell, but only time will tell if I single-handedly fail…
The women were planted to distract us. But the fact-us is they can’t break us or make us… Or can they? Because daily my people fold and break the mold, change the code and alter the mode. So, I ask myself, do I really wanna live and grow old? Or can I decipher the code and force the world to see the vision, themselves through the eyes of the Great king Coe?? Enter my realm of thought and realize that we’re slaves without chains…
Respect and power to the Fallen comrades of the 1971 Attica Rebellion. Long live the revolution… September 9th….
in order to see rehabilitation one must free or learn how to free thier mind from the mental mazes of designed stagnation. Our struggle is no different from the nationwide dehumanization that the other systems of imprisonment are allowing to be applied. The offenders rehabilitation is the least of concern of the prisonercrats. the following “criticism” is a product formed from experience behind these walls of oppression. The young offenders are forced to be predatorial beginning as soon as they enter diagnostic. Majority of Georgia level 5 institutions have poor security and this is why the offender is self dependent. both correctional offficials and fellow offenders pose to be a potential threat. everday violence is seen or mentioned to become a possible event that will occur in the near future. institutional paranoia is develope. the highest level of education offered is a Ged.offenders with alot of time[5 years or more] are put on the back burner. the living conditions os our housing units are inhumane in most areas and the medical services provided are inadequate. our basic human rights are disregarde and the laws of justice are only implmented when its time to cover up a wrong doing by its administers. malpractices such as verbal and physical harassment, excessive use of force,starvation, tampering with incoming and out going mail without probable reasoning, and denial or limited access to courts or legal aid services are just a few of the vast illicities imposed on us daily. i do not speak for those who miscondcut causes such reprisal to occur. i deplore the distress for those who this maltreatment is being imposed on because they strive to serve justice when injustice occurs. two wrongs will only create an epidemic of vengance and digression. repressed by the disoder of power many offenders cannot even feel the need for their will to change. as the authoritarian apllies oppression the stride of doubtful and confused human remain regressive. the georgia department of correction creates the criminalization it swore and is paid to correct. reinstitution of the officials and ethnics is an essentail need there cannot and will not be a massive,not even a partial productive change for correction if the people of society continue to ignorantly or consciously support the georgia department of corruption. this is the institutional genocide of humankind. all power is vested in the people

On June 30th, 2016, I witnessed a prisoner by the name of Jeffrey Reeves be subjected to excessive force by two CERT (Correctional Emergency Response Team) officers for nothing. This young Caucasian male was approached at the dinner meal and asked by cert officer Smith about a tray that layed unattended at his table. The prisoner explained that another prisoner was sitting there, but had suddenly left for some odd reason or another and that it was not his tray.
The officer departed and minutes later the other prisoner returned and picked several items to eat and gave the rest of the tray to Jeff. I watched from a row over as officer Smith spoke with officer Garmany (CERT) and nodded towards Jeff’s table.
As we exited the mess hall, something transpired inside that I did not see, but the prisoner was shoved outside on the walk and he was saying “I didn’t do nothing, man. You walked up to me saying you were going to slap me in my face.” The two officers (CERT) then began to yell at the prisoner to “shut the fuck up!” And slammed his head into the brick wall where he immediately sustained a cut over his eye and a bloody mouth.
As this incident unfolded; more staff approached: Sgt. Clay, Deputy Warden of Security Mr. Dewberry, Lt. Mcallister and a few more that I’m not familiar with due to my recent arrival here at this prison.
This prisoner was layed on his stomach, but still voicing the cruelness of these officers handlings. While so; Officer Smith placed his taser gun to the prisoners buttocks and shocked him for about 10 seconds. He kept yelling out; “stop resisting!” Prisoners began to complain and protest. We were then ordered to lie down on the scorching pavement, with our hands our sides.
This prisoner was placed in feet and handcuffs. The feet shackles were administered by a female; Sgt. Clay. And all while this took place, the Deputy Warden of Security held no authority on how to handle this maneuver.
Officer Garmany is a repeat offender of prisoner abuse. In February 2016. As officers were subduing a prisoner, he ran full speed and jumped into the air and hit an innocent bystander in prisoner with a flying knee. I observed this my first week here.
I’ve been in dorms where 2 riots broke out and Mr. Dewberry locked the dorm down as a hole and opened it back with the same offenders still housed there. By the grace of God nothing else transpired.
Hays State Prison is the only level 6 Prison in GA. The CERT staff is abusive, disrespectful, and agitators to violence. Since they have taser guns now, inmates are hesitant to voice the opinion, let alone hold court with them. All or majority of conflicts take place at chowcall with them. The chowhall does have cameras common but they quickly escort the conflict outside where there aren’t any cameras.
There is bound to be an uprising if this kind of treatment continues. I am honored to expose the injustice and mistreatment by the correctional officers at any prison that I’m housed in. Peace, respect and encourage to all.

A crime of regulated deception and maniacal entrapment. How can its victim be subterfuge by the policy of disorder? The life of countless people are compelled to comply with this inhumane and devaluing condition of living. The inner maze displays a patternized scene of deteriorating machines who were once beings of humanity. For the establishment workers… Operators of procedure, life is very unfortunate and less they walk as a policized minion by choice. Dishearten by the duty they pledge to execute as legal criminals. Their wrongs are disguised by the ordained law of rightness. The inferior force can seem so gigantic to the being of oppression. The obvious order that must be implemented is disregarded by the masses. The scenery within these walls puzzle the minds of submission with its phases of becloudment. The drugs of salvation includes the focus to the realm of illusional comfort. Disparagement affects the human in a detrimental way as life begin to seem worthless. No heart of steel can feel the spirits of the real meaning actions of sincerity are looked upon as a facade to conceal a hidden agenda. In the maze of institutional genocide the beings of free will become cyclic. Programmed by instructions of a dehumanizing manual. The con is a project in a reality of the disadvantage. Their Refuge is their will of indominacy and goals of progress for triumph is liberation. The mushroom theory is in effect, physical we are fed enough to live but not what is needed to lower our risk of developing deadly health problems. Mentally the conditions of distress puts the average employee and offender in a suicidal state. Thoughts of rage being built by endurance of malorder correction is repressed. Decivilized by the principles of common survival many die every day as their imagination is content to restrain itself with the doubt of evolution. Spiritually, man has placed law of the land over the law of the universe. By policy that are conflictive, restrictions are set to hinder the full dedication and practice of one’s faith. Hope and inspiration is a threat to the totalitarian order. Humankind is distorted by the vast of restriction that are policize to regulate our privilege of freedom. So much disparity the faith of a broken soul has placed the omnipotent one secondary to the power of atrocity. Instructed to negate the life that is meant to be for the death we come to accept. All around the world the hierarchy demonstrates their beliefs and intentions for the blind common kind. Our means are justified by their ends of esoteric growth. The maze of perplexity that mechanize the human mind life is hard trying to escape the institutional genocide.
All power is vested in the people
We must stop consential peonage.
Hays State Prison
March 7th 2016
We have been fighting in this common struggle since 2012 from G.S.P.’s torture chamber to their general population and beyond! Now; we are, by more than mere coincidence; residents of Hays State Prison where we shipped out the same night and have become roommates!! Fine with us because as the saying goes: steel sharpens steel…
I was asked to share in this letter and I’m delighted to expose the inner workings of corruption that takes place here. It is my duty and anything less would just not be me. I sent a letter to BayView Newspaper last week called: “Welcome to K.K.K.ville” in that letter I described the verbal and physical abuse I have endured and witnessed in less than 14 days in population. Since then, even more has taken place. I’ll begin with arrival: upon first exiting the bus we were approached by this huge, high testosterone, wrestler type officer claiming to turn our testicles into our nipples if we violate facility rules. After intake, we were assigned to the stereotyped behavior dorm. This is our second lockdown in less than 30 days. Word on the cell block as we have 30 days to do this time, because of a disturbance between two different organizations. I am glad to say that me and Ladarius were no part of this commotion, yet still we have to suffer the consequences.
In our first week here; a fight in the chow hall left one prisoner tased by three officers simultaneously. And they got a kick out of it. The same high testosterone officer was amped up as he responded to the fight. He entered the southside chow hall where we were eating our meal, which was the wrong location. Screaming out “where are they?!” When he received another call to report to the northside chow hall, he urged the other officer to move out of his way. This man was jumping up and down with excitement. A day or so later, he brags to prisoners about tazing the prisoner and hearing him scream and holler.
On our 9th day here; prisoner Aaron Graylor was harassed by an officer named Camp during a random “pat search”. The young man is only a few months from being released back into society. Officer Camp said that Aaron’s legs were not spread far enough and attempted to kick his feet from under him. When this did not work he slung the prisoner by his coat, while at the same time causing him to choke. In the process Erin shook loose and it caused the officer to lose his own footing and fall. This prisoner did not take any action but was wrestled to the ground when more officers arrived. I was unable to see any more. During this incident Ladarius and I were told, along with others to lay down on the ground. Several officers ran past us, but this one officer; Officer Germany ran extremely close to us, to the point that he kicked debris on myself. I assure you it was more than enough area to pass beside us. Somewhere between 6 to 10 feet of space to run freely. In less than another minute as we were being escorted into the dormitory. Alan Hansen was attacked after officer Craig provoked him. This officer was upset because of the first incident and became belligerent and as Hudson stopped to speak with him; another officer grabbed him and slung him to the ground. He was that was swarmed by at least six to eight officers in a “dogpile” maneuver. As the command for us all to get down again, Tyrone McGee was blindsided when officer Germany ran and jumped into the air with a flying knee and took him down. Another officer then kicked McGee in his face.
Ladarius and I made it safely inside our cells, even though, officers wanted to demonstrate on us, but for a female officer told them that we had nothing to do with it. We came together and immediately grieve the whole ordeal and asked that no retaliation be taken upon us and also ask to be transferred.
The individuals: Aaron Graylor, Allen Hudson #1000330320 and Tyrone McGee #1243099 have not been heard from since that day February 25th 2016, even though we asked about them through orderlies who work in the tier I and tier II details. I will continue to seek them out, because right after this I was placed in the kitchen for my detail. Once we are off of lockdown I’m back on my search.
As for the conditions: we haven’t had any recreation except one gym call on March 4th. Out of 6 showers only three work. The kitchen is pretty clean except for the trayroom where I work; there’s mold, the dishwasher is in total collapse, the floor drains do not work, their stopped up. Their are also rats everywhere in the back of the kitchen.
This place also practice a no-touch torture called “sleep deprivation”. We are awakened at 5 a.m. and pulled out of our cells to stand by for breakfast. Once we go to breakfast we’re kept out until after 8:00 count. Then we are given several minutes to get our rooms ready for inspection and held out until lunch. Then after lunch we must wait to after 12:00 count. Then we can go in cells until 3 p.m. for dinner, we must come out again and then we have 4 p.m. count. Now we have until 9 p.m. count to get some rest. Then we have 9 p.m. count. So all day long we have to sit outside our rooms. Some even sleep on the floor beside their doors or in the TV room or the top range where walking is at a minimum. Lockdown is 11:30 p.m. I must admit that being locked down in our dorm is a relief here. This is the only way that we can read, or do work on our cases or write to our family and friends. I also feel safe in my cell. I’ve been to about 12 prisons. I mean not the baddest of the bad, but it’s a pure shame to where a prisoner feels safe being locked down. After I did 34 months., that’s the last thing I want, is to be in my room 24 hours a day. But it is what it is until better days arise.
I’m honored to share with you the ins and outs of Hays State Prison, I’m pretty sure there’s plenty more to uncover about this place. Remember we haven’t been here 30 days yet. SMH?? So stay tuned!!
