Trump’s border knows no Humanity: The story of a detainee, oh sorry a prisoner

It has been said many times that any law that does not have human compassion is cruel and inhuman. Just because the current government failed to get its immigration executive order pass the test of the Constitution and on a smaller scale UN human rights standard does not give the ICE officers the freedom to play judge jury and executioner. what happened to the American culture of “Bring me your poor and wretched yearning for freedom and liberty”, I guess it has been flushed down the detention — Oh sorry, prison– toilet. Make no mistake, the treatment of detainees oftentimes are worse than an average domestic prisoner for the simple fact that 99% of detainees are in search of freedom, greener pasture, exchange of skills, quality education and/or vacation and once detain–sorry, imprisoned–are afraid of demanding fair treatment for fear of being victimized by the ICE officers and the court system.  My encounter with INS, now known as ICE, begins in 1999 when I was deported back to the UK after serving a jail term for possession of a weapon, keep in mind that the weapon was at a private residence and not in a public place. On the day of my deportation, two INS officers picked me up at a Maryland state prison and took me to the airport. This was after 5 months of INS prison time. This is how long it took for INS to process my document for deportation. On getting to the airport I was given a piece of paper that has my name and the law that governs my deportation, I never appear before a judge and the condition of my deportation was never revealed to me, specifically the length of years I was barred from reentry into the US. I remember asking the officers and I was told if I want to come back to apply for a visa in about 5 to 10 years. Fast forward to May 3 2017 at Atlanta City Airport coming for a community Wellness Festival, it’s about celebrating generosity and culture (how ironic) organized by my cousin in Tucson Arizona. Unfortunately for me, as much as I try to hide my past on the Esta online visa application my past caught up with me at the point of entry. The ICE officers refused my entry after 5 hours of looking into my past and assessing the purpose of my visit, I was asked to consent to immediate removal which I gladly did. I was to be barred for five years from the US under this removal condition. Hoping that I will be sent back to the UK the next day I called my family to inform them of the situation and that I will be back in the UK the next day but to my surprise instead of my removal from the US I was told that the removal order has been withdrawn that I now face a criminal charge of illegal entry due to the fact that my 1999 deportation order has an indefinite bar clause. I tried to explain to the officers that I was never informed of this clause either in writing or verbally and under the immigration law my offense is not an aggravated felony and I should not have been deported under the indefinite bar, well it is now 14 days and counting and I am yet to be charged in court, which constitutes an illegal detention under the criminal code. Another point to note is, if I am under the indefinite part in 1999 why was I asked to consent to immediate removal order with a five years bar and why did it take 12 hours for the ICE officers to locate the condition of my 1999 deportation order. If they could retrieve all other information about my deportation on their system and could not see the condition of my deportation until 12 hours later, something is wrong. Since 5/4/2017 I have been in prison at Atlanta prison awaiting a court appearance on a criminal charge of illegal re-entry, mind you I was told by the officer in charge of my case that I will receive a visit from court appointed lawyer the next day and will appear in court a couple of days later. I have since learned that it is the same lies that’s been told to all the detainees and that a court appearance will take a minimum of three weeks and best case scenario I will be in prison for 2 to 3 months. If this is true it will have a devastating impact on me and my family in London England, anything longer will destroy all that I have worked for in the past 17 years.

When you look at the prison facility and the condition of the detainees you begin to wonder why ICE will decide to prosecute a case like mine as opposed to just deportation or why it’s taking two to three months to deport a detainee that has willingly signed a deportation order, thereby wasting US taxpayers’ money with the unreasonable delay and at the same time violating human rights standards. For example Mr Faustino in cell 210 was removed from his cell and taken to isolation because he went on a hunger strike in protest of his continued imprisonment of almost two months after he has paid ICE for his return ticket back to Mexico. Since then a few more detainees have also taken to express their frustration by going on hunger strike. The sheer lack of compassion and empathy has led to the huge backlog of cases, deception and many lies by the ICE officers to ALL the detainees, if you ask any detainee about the information they are receiving from their DO ‘s (deportation officers) they will tell you it has been one lie after another and these are the same officers that are supposed to uphold the law and read you your Miranda Rights. Good luck waiting for your DO to show up for their scheduled visit to the prison block.

It’s no news to the media or families of detainees that the deportation procedure is too slow and yet nothing is being done by the government to rectify this problem. As I mentioned earlier what happened to the notion of “bring me your poor and wretched yearning for freedom” when the system is about to deport Rafael in cell 205 back to the country he left at the age of one year and now 18 years later he is faced with being separated from his entire family. Or in the case of great grandpa Patel at the age of 80 with diabetes condition went into shock on the 13/5/2017 and almost died due to the delay in receiving his medication, the point is why is ICE detaining an 80-year-old man when he could have been sent back or released to his family with a leg tracker?  There were many tears when he was struggling for breath and disoriented.

Apart from inefficiency by ICE it is also evident that ICE lack the funds to provide basic needs for the detainees. Situations where medical request takes 3 to 5 days to see a doctor or where it’s a struggle to get hot water for bathing, the food are often terrible and small where sometimes two dry and old cornbread is in a meal to make up for the small portion. The hygiene products provided for detainees are not only inferior China products, some are also dangerous, such as the bath soap that dry the skin and blister the lips for days. The interesting part is that the issue of poor facility can be resolved with adequate funding or proper effectiveness of ICE process and procedure, why should it take 3 to 4 weeks to appear in court once the decision has been made that court appearance is needed or two to three months to execute a voluntary removal order. This period of cruel and unnecessary imprisonment is inhuman and a waste of US taxpayers’ money.

Furthermore compassion and empathy will also go a long way in the reduction of backlog cases and cost situation where when a Senior Correction Officer enter the prison block the detainees are meant to put their back to the next available wall regardless of if it’s eating time or not shows cruelty through the officers always allow us to continue with our meal, nonetheless the rules still apply. Furthermore why the state or federal government will ask a nonworking illegal immigrant to pay taxes on phone calls, hygiene products and medical items etc. is very strange and interesting. There is also a hint of extortion / exploitation on the pricing of these products and services, the detainees are charged at least four times higher than the street value, it makes one wonder how in a state and federal run so-called Detention Center who is capitalizing on these fraudulent schemes.

Update: today is a sad day, I have just learned that Great Grandpa Patel, the 80-plus-year-old man from India died yesterday 17/5/17 at the detention Clinic due to the complications he suffered while in ICE custody.

Due to the many protests by concerned citizens in regard to our continued incarceration in prison condition, for which the last one was held yesterday on the prison ground we received visitors from ICE human right division. The purpose of their visit was in regard to the poor prison conditions and to investigate the death of Mr. Patel from India. An attempt has been made to improve the condition at the facility but the condition is a small part in the concern of detainees ICE process and procedure lack humanity and it’s broken. For example I started my hunger strike on 1/6/17 due to the fact that since 3/5/17 when I was arrest at the airport they have yet to arraign me in court, which is now 30 days overdue. Once a detainee start a hunger strike the procedure is that I should have been notified immediately but due to broken process and procedure it took 2 days for my hunger strike to be documented and for ICE to be notified, now most hunger strikes last two days that’s when your DO will come and explain your situation to you, but mine will probably last a lot longer due to bad management. Thanks to officer Renfroe and officer Jackson and few other officers who ignored my hunger strike my first two days on hunger strike meant nothing. Good news just received a visit from my DO and his supervisor, the supervisor said he just received today the letter I posted to him two weeks ago and the DO said he has been on vacation, and resume back to work today, go figure. When all else fails, lie. I was told I would not be prosecuted but I will have to see the judge who will determine my eligibility letter to process on my visit into the US or to be deported back to UK. So I guess once again hunger strike works if a detainee wants to exercise his or her right now that it documented that I have been on hunger strike the sheriff and his supervisor officer Bernell will have to get a move on with my case.  I just received a visit from the incompetent ICE officer that handled my case at the airport over 1 month ago, he brought my charge document to sign, this is a document I should have signed at the airport over 30 days ago and it is the only reason why my case got lost in the system for over a month until I went on hunger strike.

In conclusion, it is easy to pin the failure of immigration policies on Donald Trump or the government but sorry the citizens must realize the abuse of freedom and liberty that is being committed, situation where immigrants are getting their permanent green card withdrawn for simple misdemeanor charges or where the immigration makes new laws as they deem fit with no oversight department to cross check the laws against detainees’ human rights for example to have a law that gives DHS or ICE 90 days to deport a willing detainee is morally wrong, and unjust and contradict the values of what America stand for.

Love and respect from a revolutionary prisoner to all immigrants, prisoners, and hunger strikers

5/17/2017

Greetings comrades,
It seems not a day passes that Donald Trump and his neo-fascist policies are exposed for the hypocrisy / racist entities that they truly are. The immigration policy and actions that it garners are clearly designed to be oppressive, exploitative, and discriminative against Muslim, Latino, people of color etc. ICE has a Detention Center in Atlanta, Georgia (ACDC) in reality a jail that houses all immigrants regardless of where one comes from which has subpar living conditions. According to Donald Trump he wants all illegal immigrants people of color out of AmeriKKKa yet all Latinos/Hispanics, foreign blacks are now being KKKriminally prosecuted for illegal entry and are being denied fundamental human rights​! It is clearly a discriminative practice that denies immigrants U.S. constitutional rights, yet they’re being forced to endure the U.S. KKKriminal justice system without the same citizens’ rights being afforded like any naturalized citizen. One must ask, what is the real motive behind the targeting of immigrants/people of color by ICE and Donald Trump. It can only be population/social control by a closet white nationalist who has a deep-seated fear of being the victim of retribution by the oppressed for all the neo-fascist evil he has perpetrated against them.

Here in Georgia, Department of KKKorrections and the judicial branch are in collusion with Donald Trump with the express purpose of targeting in destroying the common man. Now if one investigates how ICE deports white foreigners without any form of KKKriminal prosecution one can only come to one conclusion, there’s never been justice here in AmeriKKKa it’s just the existence of the KKKonquered being subjected to the whims of Madness which is manifested from a white supremacist mind-state. Take a close look at Donald Trump and his circle of KKKronies who backgrounds are founded in Neo Gestapo blitz policy and their focus is to enact a reign of modern day lynching of all common people naturalized citizens or not. so here in Georgia at the ACDC, AmeriKKKa’s citizens can witness firsthand how their government mistreat human beings​. In this so-called land of democracy human rights are being made a mockery by a sociopath masquerading as a champion of the common man’s right to be free of terror: when in fact Trump and his KKKronies are the very ones terrorizing the world’s human rights!

It’s a sad reality that the world is being bamboozled by a hate monger whose sense of superiority blinds him to the fact that he’s spiritually, mentally, and morally twisted. For those who support government and system that allows a madman to violate it treaties and human rights: in due time and in due form, you shall suffer from your twisted sense of white superiority.  To all immigrants, prisoners, and hunger strikers throughout the United States of AmeriKKKa, I send my love and respect! I also stress to each you are not alone in this fight and never give up but go harder for the cause!!

Respectfully,

If There’s Anybody Out There Please Help Us

By Paul Maynard
At Valdosta State Prison on the Tier II Program

Greetings to all my fellow comrades and those who care. I’m still sitting in this long-term solitary confinement longer than I was sentenced to, trying to figure it all out. It is said this is a 9-month program but yet when we (humans) finish our program with good behavior we still get three plused. Which means we won’t get off the program for another three months which totals up to 12 months on this Tier II program. That’s a whole year! “SMH”, somebody, anybody please help us. All you have to do is come to Valdosta State Prison and you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about you have people on 3 plus just because they (the administration) don’t like you, if you’re a smart gentleman who uses the pen to take action you are getting 3 plused, etc. etc. What’s the difference between those being forced into torture chambers and those who are being held and forced to stay in long-term solitary confinement longer than sentenced. It’s no difference we are all being tortured. Somebody please help us! We don’t change our jumpsuits for months, and months at a time, the jumpsuit I have on now I had this jumpsuit since the end of February. When we write grievances they give us a receipt, but our grievances get intercepted and thrown out for everything we write up. We can have all the evidence needed and they’ll still say it wasn’t enough evidence to process a grievance. And they’ll deny it. I thought this was a free country who believes in being equal. I’m not a man who speaks on negativity, I’m a man who believes in righteousness and if it’s not right it’s gotta be wrong. even a newborn baby knows when they’re being treated wrong. This is going on all around the world, racism. Let me speak on something brother Melvin Jackson spoke on. He’s right about the situation he spoke on. But he also has to remember who those people have to answer to so the same African Americans whose oppressing us (humans) are puppets to the higher up in higher positions. It’s no excuse for them I just wanted to touch bases on that article. It’s a true fact mostly white administrations are fair when mostly African-American administrations are busy trying to prove thereselves to the whites that they are not even worried about the pain you’re causing their own race. Brother trigger 1000 spoke on Nat Turner, said he was Nat Turner, Nat Turner was a white slave master other than that statement brother Trigger 1000 has grown to think like a black man. Back to the task at hand we need some urgent help at Valdosta State Prison in Valdosta Georgia. These officials tell us things then blame it on the board of pardons and paroles, which is in Atlanta GA. Everything from why do they use 7% pepper spray in cells when its stated in the S.O.P. it’s only supposed to be used in riots. The officials say it was notarized and Atlanta approved of them to use it. We’re staying in long-term solitary confinement 23 hours a day except on Saturdays and Sundays where we stay in our cells 24 hours a day. When they Administration purchase snacks and food from restaurants in society with inmate trust funds they punish phases 1, 2, and 3 by not giving us any of it. But yet we pay for it with our $1 a month $4 for disciplinary reports $5 for sick calls and five more dollars for the medication they put us on which adds up to $10, they tell us if you don’t do this or that you’re not getting it. Now I’m not the smartest man in the world but isn’t that extortion, which is a constitutional right. It’s against the law to extort am I right? Why is it safe for the law to break the law and not get punished but the blacks and the poor break a lot we get over punished for it. I’m so serious when I say this, please somebody help us! It’s all lies they blame the board Department of Corrections for everything. Excuse me, Department of KKKorrections! Somebody needs to get the CNN news to come and check out what’s going on at prisons Tier 2 programs like Valdosta State Prison located in Valdosta GA, Hays State Prison located in Trion GA, Ware state prison located in Waycross GA, Telfair State Prison located in Telfair, GA, Smith State Prison located in Glennville, GA and Macon State Prison. It gets sadder than that though! If any type of official help in any type of way possible they Correctional offers officers feel they’re being entirely too nice. It doesn’t matter what it is, it can be that I’m giving us some positive advice or anything to help our mental or give us some enlightenment out of the Bible or whatever religion you are. Why don’t they want us to get that type of help. Why do they tell counselors to write some things on paper then they turn right around and show this person and that person what’s going on with this inmate and that inmate. They say different sessions are supposed to be confidential but turn around and let one of their co-workers know what’s going on. We (humans) aren’t safe nowhere in this place. Insight if you care y’all would get somebody out here to check on us just one time without Department of KKKorrections knowing until it is too late. Mainly Valdosta State Prison because it’s plain as day. They got people in position of authority that don’t have the slightest idea of what they’re doing. All me and every other prisoner is asking is that someone please come help us. We understand being punished for our law breaking crimes we committed but you also have to take into consideration that in places like Georgia, Florida and Alabama we’re guilty until proven innocent. But still we’re not complaining about our time because we understand our sentence but what we don’t understand and wasn’t explained to us was how badly we was gonna be treated. We’re treated like stray dogs, wild animals or even as if we got that deadly disease Ebola. The governor and commissioner 2 white guys who’s behind the strings of a African-American Administration. I sent a copy of some of the things that’s been done when we file a grievance. I have yet to hear or see any response behind us my brothers being jumped on. We took the big step and sacrificed ourselves on September 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, and 13th on the behalf of the September 9th movement. In return all we got was some blind individuals who told us they were on our side but yet kept using excuses like we can’t beat them or we gone lose. No one was thinking positive except for me, Gutta mike, Trouble G, Trey Mac and Trill. We accomplished a little we wasn’t getting mail on Friday but now we are. But on to what my point is, my point is we got assaulted by correctional officers and we used the P.O.T.P. (power of the pen) and they only sent me this paper from the Commissioner’s Office stating my grievance isn’t appealable when it clearly states that all informal grievances are appealable and they even went as far as blaming Internal Affairs, stating Internal Affairs had my informal grievance. Ok, I was suppose to speak with them they never saw me and none of the rest of my brothers either. Somebody please help us it’s us against them just put yourself in our shoes. Send someone to Valdosta State Prison in Valdosta Georgia and Hays State Prison in Trion Georgia. Send the news, CNN and I guarantee you that you got a huge story and a big change. Use my name if you want I don’t care, but I do care about a change in this cruel system. Sacrifices must be made and I’m willing to make it. “Love”

 

Spring and Summer is to Come: A Prisoner’s Thoughts on Liberation

To my psychological and spiritual soldiers of confinement: 
God is the supreme mind distributed throughout all parts of the universe – the cause of all things, the intelligence of all things, and The power within all things. The motion of God is circular, the body of God is composed the substance of light, the nature of God is composed of the substance of truth! (Facts) Man and the universe were made in the image of God; both being made in the same image. The overstanding of one predicates the knowledge of the other. It would be wise for us to reach out to as many family and friends within society and enlighten them of the instruction to not vote Donald Chump in our next election. It’s like the nature; we are amongst the cold winter season; but all in due time spring and summer is to come only if we can prove to be of God image in the Mind and Spirit as well as the flesh also. My brothers of the 2017 articles from January to now in the Insight. I would like to give you all a shout out for that light and positive motivational force of energy, especially here at Valdosta State Prison and all the other movements thats standing against the oppressors. My love goes to each and every soul. We are living to die for the betterment of our world and its future of generations to come. 
One other thing before I leave; Rosco if we come together and do away with the bull shit, we are the young hearts of the streets that can make a big different. We have to get a new ordley’s also so we can communicate with our brothers in J-building. Shout out Jarvis – Kevin – Paul – Gutta – Trigger 1000 – Nard Ru – Ratchett – Renny – K.G. – Rock – the Islam Community – 5% my brothers and sisters in other prisons and plenty more. Valdosta State Prison is soldiered up for the struggle – all you have to say is Go! And with that I leave you all with strength – love – loyalty – respect – honor and peace. The real Trouble G 

 

See What I See

See What I See

They missguide our young. They tear apart our neighborhoodz. They kill us at young agez. They give drugs to our youth and give them gunz to kill each other with. Do you not see the revelation of the prophecy? They destroy our communitiez, leaving us vulnerable to senseless actz of violence. The KKK Opz kill our blaq kingz and queenz, giving their families no signs of signs of Justice. Why are we so oblivious to this torture. Why are we so out of fuckin’ disorder? My Blaq bretheren would rather rob and kill the dope man for $20,000 and a couple pounds of meth versus going out to find a job. My blaq sisters would rather post up on the hoe-stroll, selling their bodies for a couple hundred dollars, versus dreading my hair or babysitting. I’m fed up with the blaq-on-blaq crimez. Negro’z turning into nigga’z. N.E.G.R.O.S.: “N” means I will never give up on my own kind. N.E.G.R.O.S.: “E” means that we are empowered by our originz. N.E.G.R.O.S.: “G” means only the blaq godz can judge me. So who are you to judge? N.E.G.R.O.S.: “R” means remember the rebellion and revolution of the innocent and fallen lives like Nat Turner and Trayvon Martin. N.E.G.R.O.S.: “O” means the oppressors will never win against the power of the blaq man or the beauty of the blaq woman. N.E.G.R.O.S.: “S” means the segregation and separation we struggled to destroy. What did Doc King get assassinated? Why did Rosa Parkz refuse to give up her seat to that white man on that bus? Did Nat Turner rebel against those crooked ass slave masters in vain? All for nothing? Was Harriet Tubman’s freeing of the slaves for no reason at all? Blaq soldiers slain in the Civil War and forgotten. Blaq children abandoned by their mother and thrown into a nearby dumpster outside of their apartment build. Young blaq kingz selling drugz to their motherz only to find her strung out or dead; eyes rollin’ in the back of her head because she OD’d, needle still stuck in her arm. Young blaq queenz being raped by their own blaq brotha’z. Who are we really? Are we some sort of animalz? The tribez of Africa selling are blaq kingz and queenz for guns and ammunition. They say blaq livez matter. But don’t they all? Blinded by colorz within gangz and organizationz. Beefin’ with a rival gang for reasons we don’t even know about. When will we become cognizant of the shit we go through? Answer this: what the fuck did our ancestors die for? Grab a book and not a gun. Go get a job and don’t sell drugz. Go kill a microphone and not other blaq man. Learn about your origins and not how to cook dope. Like queenz, don’t show ya body and ya booty. Show ya beauty. Young blaq kingz don’t follow anybody!! Lead everybody!! At the end of the day you’re still going to be blaq. Are you a nigga or a negro? Are you with me or against me? Blaq men are supposed to be the strength for our blaq queenz when they can’t take this world and it’s stress on their shoulders by themselves. Our blaq queenz are supposed to be blaq menz backbonez. Or spinal columns and support system / structure to keep us standing. We are a disgraced race within itself. Killing off what could be a future blaq doctorz, future blaq lawyerz, and future blaq businessmen and women. They “Trumped” the world and made a mockery of Obama’z legacy. Another blaq man. Why did Frederick Douglass discover the Underground Railroad and lead slave rebellion, if hundreds of years later, our race would trick ourselves right back into slavery in a fuckin’ prison cell, better known as modern-day enslavement. I hate when my brotha’z refer to themselves as real niggaz!! A real nigga, since that’s what young blaq men pronounce, proclaim, and broadcast yourselves as, and when broken down and dissected into the lowest terms, is a bona fide, true, natural, and authentically ignorant person. But ignorance is bliss because we choose to be ignorant. In this world our race is hypnotized and entranced by being deaf, dumb, and blind. Ignorant and uneducated. Unconscious and unmindful. Mindless an unseen. Don’t hear what I’m saying. See what I’m saying. Listen means to observe and pay attention. Not hear. You analyze the shit that they have taken us through, examine the struggle for what it is, and you make your decision to rebel against their ulterior motive to destroy and annihilate the blaq race; or simply become one of them. Die blaq and proud. Don’t die like them, behind a shroud. Peace, honor, and respect.

The Pancea

The Pancea

Pancea means “universal remedy”; and “universal” means “all” and “remedy” means to make good; A treatment, like medicine, is for sickness; It is a solution to problems.

The biggest problem is us; and I will especially explain to you brothers and sisters (folks) exactly what I mean while in the process of providing this pancea. We are not thinking as a nation or as folks who want to conquer and achieve. We have been moving; speaking and thinking with our emotions instead of our brains.

Atlanta Anarchist Black Cross Group (AABCG) is showing us that they are willing to be used in any righteous and logical way; and we must thank them for all that they have sacrificed to support our struggle. Now is the time to realize that we have been driven on a circle shaped line; going around and around expecting to find a different line or solution. That is insane to continue to touch fire and expect it not to burn you when that is what it will continue doing; until you accept that fire cannot be touched without being burnt. The oppressors are laughing at us, because they are sitting on our backs with a dream tied to the end of a sick; holding it out in front of us to chase like a donkey would for a carrot that he will never bite until he realizes the trick and gets paid first; before moving.

We have 4 years to fight with a stupidity tacit that will lead us back to blaming each other; or we can take a year or two to build a proper and more powerful movement. We need to donate stamps and funds to the AABCG; because it costs money to run a powerful nation and to send out postages or updates etc through mail.

We need to have everyone that‘s with the lay down movement to sign up and provide full government name- state of incarceration and facility- we need your current time left to serve- contact info incase of emergency.

The AABCG will document your info as a member- your goal is to recruit more and more members. Lets say that your facility holds 1,200 and we have 700 or better who are members that are ready to lay down. If we can get great #’s especially detail workers to lay down world wide- how the September 9th 2016 Lay Down was supposed to have been- that will assure us we are completely unified and have power. No one can say they didn’t know because a secret coded word will be established to go inside of the monthly insight article letting it be know “directly”.

Lets give membership #’s- in a order like you’re #1- I’m #2- she’s #3, etc, in every state. All Alabama stamps and funds are to assist their state only; the same for any other state. To give more support and motivation- how about every one gives at least $20 every 2 months and the money gets divided into 3 equal or 2 equal ways. One of the 3 or 1/2 of the money will go to AABCA support treasure for your state and the other 1/2 or 2 equal stacks goes to #1 and #2- or just #1 and in the next 2 months it goes the same way except #1 or #2 will not be the receiver; it would be on #3 or #4 and this will continue to move on.

This means those who do not pay cannot receive until everyone who has participated is rewarded and that will be on a separate count sheet. AABCA will have to make a finance status section in the article that will allow members to know whats in the treasury and to know who paid or not; so everyone will know its no bull shit going down. When printing AABCA- you have to put Georgia info in Georgia articles only- and the same for the other states. If its 50 folks signed up and you are #50 that wouldn’t be fair to you to have done gave out all of that money to receive that less back and for you in #1 spot its not fair for you to receive that much money and still have to pay more out. The solution is we must work together and build the right force, which will take dedication and sacrifices. Lets get serious!

Troubl-G at Valdosta

The Mind of a Tortured Soul

Written by: Jacorie M. Hinton Sr. AKA Trigga 1000  
At Valdosta State Prison on Tier 2 program  
Dedicated to the  person who put me on point when we was at Reidsville Georgia State Prison (Ladarius Colbert AKA Koby AKA Seer) 
(Micheal E. Taylor AKA Champ) 
Being locked in a Cell 24 hours a day 7 days a week you have at that point so much time to think of your next move that whatever route you choose has to work. I’ve thought of so many options, but being on here didn’t rehabilitate me it only made me worst. Look at all the torture we endured this past year. I’ve had officers buck on feeding me and my roommate. I done been assaulted by officers verbally and physical. I have been to war with the police so many times I’ve lost count. If it wasn’t for brother Kelevin (KJ) Stevenson and Arthor Desmond Thomas I’d be in K-building on Phase 1. KJ taught me how to fight with a pen and I actually won after all the fights and going to war with the police. They thought I was dumb and uneducated and couldn’t use a pen LOL I showed them. But back to my options. I couldn’t come up with too many but the one option that always stuck with me was Revenge! I’m already a violent individual being locked up for kidnapping with bodily injury, the thought of Revenge fits easily with my character. And the so-called Rehabilitation Center they call the prison AKA The Chain Gang didn’t rehabilitate me, it’s only multiplying my violence and anger. My question is they do it to me so why not torture them back? I’m telling you this because I want you to see how the so-called rehabilitation centers have rehabilitated me so you can ask yourself this one important question: How many of the thousands of people locked up in the prison system have the same train of thought, how many feel the same way that I feel and how many of thousands are going to be released with the same built-up anger and how many are going to actually seek out revenge! Ask yourself how would you feel if you were a slave for 10 years then released like it never happened? All the bodies you’ve seen all the murders you’ve witnessed, not by inmates but officers! Then all of it swept under the rug like it never even took place! I look at all of the ones that are on the mental health shot
They’re mindless zombies trained to obey one person or image rather than think freely. They want all of us on meds so we won’t stick together and fight against them. I learned that by easily paying attention of my of my surroundings and you can see the damage that has already been done but me being mistreated like I don’t matter or like I’m an animal has stained my heart for Revenge. I seek any way to destroy this system I’m in but I lack the strength in individuals who heart is stained like mines. I’m not going to lay down and I hope you won’t either. But I’m alone, not many people will stand up with me and that will make me an easy defeat. So I lay in total darkness recruiting Soldiers with the same stained heart like mine and when I’m strong enough all hell is going to break loose and my enemy is the prison system that enslaves me. I am Nate Turner with a heart of cole and this is my Revenge! The mind of a Tortured Soul Trigga 1000. You can contact me at Valdosta State Prison P.O. Box 310 Valdosta, GA 31603. My name Jacorie M. Hinton Sr. GDC 1268264. That’s the address. Much Respect and Loyalty

Black Tape of the Mournful

Black Tape of the Mournful (from 2016)
by King Coe
The elevation of the degrading verbal and physical abuse that we receive on a daily basis is becoming too much, almost unbearable…individuals will only stand for so much whether it be singlehandedly or as a whole.  The “tipping point” is approaching sooner than the rulership thinks.  I wonder myself: will I be the sacrificial lamp for the oppressed people?
I’ve examined my life and it may be worth the pain, agony, and death.  But it may not?  Who knows?  That’s the question I ask myself daily…is it worth dying for?  The respect, pride, honor, what about suffering of my forefathers?  Was it all in vain?
I know that I cannot continue to take this subjugation and not respond with brute force.  I watch everyday as the correctional officers harass and abuse my fellow brothers, mostly black men, but there are some white and even latinos too.  I avoid any interference as best I can, but I begin to feel like a slave who is afraid to look “massah” in his eyes, fore a whipping may occur…slavery was abolished over 120 years ago.  Segregation, 50!  Raised through the crack epidemic.  I survived that.  I fought for my survival daily in those mean streets, so why will I bow now?  Take my life if you will, but my mothers, sisters, brothers, son, grands and greats will know that I did no kneel to these oppressors of derogatory, degrading, corrupt entities.
Fuck the “establishment”, because they will not be satisfied until they wear “the black tape” over their badges to mourn the death of their own.

 

Changing Times

Changing Times
Melvin Jackson, Jackson
This is my 35th year of incarceration.  The inmates are using the same old rhetoric, “the white man this” or “the white man that”.  I’m located a Georgia’s Diagnostic & Classification Prison in high max.  Tier III total lockdown in Jackson, Georgia.  No white man is denying me my rights!  Not many hired in this area any more.  When even I can see outside of my cell or go to medical, I see an ocean of black executive and jr executive administrator faces.  The entire executive and jr executive staff is all black.
We have black apartheid – purposeful black segregation.  I guess all that marching and protesting in the 60’s and 70’s worked!  The white folks gave us what we requested.  He gave us more: A black president, black mayors, senators, etc.  Inmates rioted in prison begging for black staff.  Here at GDCP 25 minutes from the central office in Forsyth we now have black wardens executing us!  Where is the NAACP?  Tier III superintendent M. cannon, Deputy Warden Security W. Powell, Population Counselors K. Forts and J. Goody, Chief Counselor, Dep Warden Care & Treatment, Captain, Grievance Coordinator, all African Americans – blacks – negroes, etc.  Yet I’m being denied access to the grievance system which violates my access to the courts.  My cell is boycotted by these staffers – no grievance in dorm violating IIB05-0001 of state policies.  Where are the GDOC investigators?  Oh, did I not tell you, they’re also black.  Black security guards now do the assaulting, the lying.  Where is the white man when the few black judges dismiss your case on a whim.
Black mental health workers monitor and document your endurance to discover new methods of control and brainwashing.  Inmates given cell restrictions 6 months or over a year.  Which means no yard or outside of cell activities.  Although this violates international law of the Geneva Convention code for prisoners – and the US Constitution.  Because the staff is black and brown, they are able to get away with it.  The black administrators deny us access to regular library and is creating more illegal customs to make it harder for us to access novels.  There is a “no passing” staff rule so those without funds either go crazy or figure out a way not to.  As long as the negro warden continues to execute (kill) inmates and the NAACP ACLU and others find it’s no longer newsworthy, these blacks will continue to abuse us without investigations.  Inmate executions are only newsworthy if it is done by a white warden.  The Georgia prison system, especially most medium security systems, has become your Haiti, or your Uganda.  The black administrators are our Papa Docs, Baby Doc, and Idi Amins.  Why is it we very seldom hear about prisons in Montana, Idaho, these mostly white states?  All I read or hear in these protesting news alerts is “Trump this! Trump that!” Has everyone forgotten history?  It was the Clintons that granted billions of dollars nationwide to build prisons in the 90’s.  It was also the Clintons that changed US 1983 rules for inmates filing lawsuits in federal courts.  It is almost impossible to file assault, mental cruelty and then your awards are minial.  Thank you Bill and Hillary!  Abraham Lincoln was an admitted racist and it was he that freed us.
Thomas Jefferson loved you, really wanted you free :) but he kept his slaves until he died, raped Sally Hemmings because as a slave she could not say “no massa!”.  Let the inmates re-examine who their oppressors are.  History tells us different. Many Afrikan tribes sold and gathered other blacks to be sold into slavery.  Also white people do not appreciate taking instructions from many of these unprofessional blacks – and we find white flight.  The GDOC is overwhelmed with blacks.  Hayes and Valdosta may be a little different – would someone inform me how to get these helpless ex-slaves investigated, for they are killing me.
Peace & Respect

Don’t be Deceived

by Stanley Malone, Wilcox SP

Don’t be deceived by the stripes on the clothing of the confined: those who live away from society, who live and die within the dreary walls of prison, who are enclosed by the fences of a world of which some cannot conceive.
Don’t be deceived into believing that in prison dwell only the worst of unmanly men, suffering the torments of their past, built on resentments or insecurities.  Prison is a world where many souls are crushed, yet many are strengthened by the power of God, they become the best of men.
The isolated cells standing side by side, with nowhere to run, nowhere to hide.  Inside this prison of hate and bitterness is where you distinguish the men of stripes.  Many are weakened, yet, for many the mind is strengthened.
For the thousands that refuse to accept and change their wrongs and weaknesses, the thousands who blame others of this world for their misgivings and mature only through body:
There are still thousands that change and stand, strong and proud they do stand. And you may be startled by their humbleness, their understanding and their soundness of mind and spirit…
Remember if you will, that the greatest leaders of mankind (wearing such names as Martin, Malcolm, Mandela and Mohomad) through mighty acts of revelations and agape expectations, which kindled the most compounding and astounding movements throughout history, all have ascended from the prison pit.
And just as many whom themselves could have been great, sadly too many have perished within without awakening to the real purpose of which they are born.  And that would be to rediscover and to share the most valuable and precious gift in which the creator himself specifically gave, and that is the mind.
Don’t be deceived!
