The Brain Washed

Written By: Jacorie Hinton
AKA Trigga 1000

We our own kind are our destruction in life! Worrying who got what and did what, and wanting to be the biggest and the baddest and freshest! But we were branded in the beginning as the most hated because of our mind and strength and we were tricked into a lifestyle we are cursed with til death that came with ignorance! The term we all hear today on April 1st is April fool! But do you know the history in the saying? The year 1555 on April 1st, we the black race were tricked into slavery and thats when the term April Fool was born! And we are so quick to call the white man a white cracker in disrespect when it’s a compliment. The term white cracker came from the whip crackin on the slaves back! And we want equal rights when the Declaration of Independence has not been changed, we are still considered half a person to be in office but Donald Trump is our president. Please wake up people, let’s fight the right fight!!!  

Fascism and the War for Life in this Land of Death

Train to think by the concepts of misinforming guidance. The common sense in this land makes no sense because justice rectifies illegal actions of retribution. War on poverty allows exploitation of the labor class. War on Drugs is so broad any drug territory inhabitant can be “neutralize” by any means in attempt “tranquil” this hazardous social disease. War on terrorism is war on all potential internal and external. Internal threats are Muslims, Crips, GD’s, MS-13, criminal charges persons and any other people or group in conflict with the interest of the establish order.

This subjugation will last as long as the masses continue to disbelieve the truth. The obvious is being overlooked and the hidden is not being sought. In this time of day murder is a ticket of respect. At night the horror of walkers take the streets and terrorize their common kind. Babies are exchange for goods and education is secondary to the lesson of discipline. Crack, cocaine, and ecstasy has been made legal under prescription distributed by the pharmaceuticals department. New gun restrictions debilitate the constituted and god given right of self-preservation. To be free will cost some of your civil liberties. Or does it? If this franchise of corporate law is only affective consensually, then what will happen when consent is no longer given? When the sleep is awaken and the blind can see. When the deaf can hear and the lame of doubt is move by faith.

The matter of survival is constantly being infected with substances that enervates its neutrons. Your physical growth is stunt by “vaccines” of sterilization. Mentally your mind is buried in distress, agony and confusion. Enslaved by ignorance and raged by the madness it visualizes. Emotionally you’re on a steady imbalance frequently the process of decay takes a toll. Effecting the psychological state – now psychosis are diagnosis. Population control is in affect and is calculated every 10 years. Our country of opportunity; and freedom. Our nation of death as the right way… Damn this is the Amerikkkan Dream. In order for them to live we must die. The many for the few our means are justified by their ends…to be continued. 

A Unified Gesture

Hello, May peace and blessings be with us all.     

A unified gesture isn’t just a normal gesture it’s a scrutinized objective that symbolizes a change for humanity once viewed from a stabled mind or by those of common interests.     

These common interests are to grow and develop, unify, improve poverty, and to make equal. Growth and development are a matter we find so predictable only because who can obtain growth for the right cause while dealing with misguidance and many other unethical casualties. If we do away with prevarication the truth will no longer be subtle. Unity among families as well as to our communities gives leadership to the up coming generation. Let’s not bring our kids into neighborhoods we regret growing in. The chance to change it lies within the speech of encouragement, motivation to change a mind set, and the teaching of self-dependency. Togetherness is the truth awaiting its revelation once unified we will expand hope. Improving the state of poverty, we deal with penury not only because of prejudice matters, but for the lack of building within our communities so that job opportunities will be available. We can improve the state of poverty by giving those whom get neglected the encouragement to strive for a better living, without criminal acts.     

To make equal, we all seek equality in our own way. Each ethnic group is publicized for mostly their wrongs which leaves their rights never thought of. This causes each ethnic group to denounce the others for their wrongs that may have been afflicted in the past. Now they stigmatize one another which collaborate well with disunity, remember “Divided we fall, united we stand”.

Lack of Unity in Prison: What the F Happened?

By: Charles Shepard
AKA ‘Su’hayb’ 
So, I started doing time in 1997 and I have been in prison in Indiana, Oklahoma and Georgia. I’ve seen the system change for the worse. On both sides! The convicts became Inmates and the movement has slowly become restricted. Its called ‘controlled movement’. Georgia prison system is the most fucked up I’ve seen from every aspect, but especially the prisoners’ mind frame. They allow sex offenders in population; its cool to ‘kick it’ with the police; and the Muslims protect the trash. I am a Muslim, but took my shahadah on the streets. In Georgia prison system it’s ‘cool’ to masturbate in the day room when females are around. What the fuck is that shit?! Gang members change flags like I change socks.

These cats will snitch on a person just because they don’t have anything going on, just to try to move into their position, but they are green and broke. Shits crazy!

I’m in a high max unit called Tier III (SMU) and can’t even pass a shot of coffee without a rat puttin in a kite. Haters! The prisoners don’t get paid to work. Only get 2 meals on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. No TV’s, hotpots or lamps on the store list. You can’t order books unless the money comes off of your account.

The prisoners wont stand up for shit, they mostly all have a slave mentality, they are afraid to be locked down. Just recently at Macon State Prison the warden came in all the dorms and told the Muslims they couldn’t pray in congregation and you know what happened? The brother had a meeting and said no one prays in the day room, pray in your cells! Are you fucking kidding me. I ask why and the response is we got too much to lose! Unfucking believable.

When I started doing time, you got your paperwork checked when you came in the door if you had fucked up charges- you gotta go! If you speak to a cop- you gotta go. If the police get slick with one prisoner – we ALL fall down, and if you don’t – you gotta go.

Georgia! Pick yourselves up! You gotta learn to sacrifice to get what you want. Everyone screamin Georgia on the map, but for what? Shootin your own? Snitchin on your own? Or maybe, the most sexual predators in the chain gang? Get it together!

Buried Alive

By: Frederick Radford
Wickedness, inside an iron fence.
That’s tailor made with razor blades.
Stuck inside a twilight zone
with herds of beast, that lurk for thrones.
I live within an episode of Frankenstein…
But I’m divine.
This origin of goons and goblins,
indexed in volumes,
who’s seen as numbers, instead of names. 
These cell’s are hell, so let them burn…
Like a book of matches, as I turn to ashes.
Without a flame.
Who’s to blame?
The judicial system,  that’s designed to keep us oppressed.
Lose your case, then lose your life,
whether you’re wrong or right.
The judge don’t lose no rest.
While he holds his wife,
I’m dressed in stripes. 
Stand up for count I don’t get no rest.
Life in prison as I discern, is a living hell!
The dead are buried in caskets.
The lifer casket is my cell.

Defeating The Razor Wire Plantation Hydra

“Keeping prisoners violently divided and at each other’s necks is a policy calculated to maintain control and keep the prisoners focus off of the officials who are oppressing them all.”
~California’s Department of Correction Ombudsman Ken Hurdle

Greetings Komrades,

As the words are conveyed full of dedication, resiliency, and camaraderie, I hope there isn’t any hindrance so they may reach ya’ll in the same manner. I’m perplexed to find these razor wire plantations get away with doing shit to us that we’d never tolerate from each other. All of us continuously complain about prison conditions being “fucked up”, complaining how security threat group policies hinder us from receiving visits, but there’s nothing being done to rectify our situation.

Let me tell you what’s “fucked up”, is that the individual tyrants who make up the hierarchy of these street formations are plagued with the same characteristics of our oppressors. How many of you are confined to isolated tombs due to taking orders that wasn’t beneficial for you? But only beneficial for the one who gave you the order. Then once you were sentenced by the administration of these razor wire plantations to long stints of isolation, you’ve been forgotten and you’ve become one of the many whom has been exploited for the personal gain of the street formations leadership. But this is brotherly love right?    

Why isn’t there never no orders given to obtain better food? Better medical treatment? Better programs or educational opportunities? Why are sacrifices being made to tear down the next man who shares the common oppression, but none to rectify this system?    

Komrades we’re in a very sad state, and if we continue to allow the oppressor to atomize us, and assisting the oppressor to keep the yoke of oppression on our necks. The the future of prisoners may consist of us being whipped in the fields, ALL of us every race. The founding reasons these street formations were organized must return and these bylaws must be implemented.Most of these street formations were founded on revolutionary ideology, because of the economic, political and social conditions that the peer were subjugated to. These street formations were formed to be vigilance committees, to protect and uplift their communities. The vision of the founding fathers has been lost and we’ve become predators of the prey (oppressed). So are we really real right? or are we proxies for these miscreants?    

Komrades we can surmount the barriers we’ve placed in our own way! This vicissitude (change) is reachable. It begins with us understanding the strength in our numbers. Envisage (envision) the ten demands put out by Jailhouse Lawyers Speak for the Aug 21 prison strike being implemented. This isn’t a dream this could be reality, but reaching this accomplishment falls on the leadership of the street formations.We must purge the separationism and individualism from our character. We musn’t compromise for taking victories, for individual privileges and incentives. Compromising didn’t win the revolution for China, compromising didn’t end slavery, it took a civil war. Our struggle won’t be romantic, I recognize that we must always make a choice between what is beneficial and what is pleasant. The coward would choose pleasantness because it don’t demand a struggle or sacrifices. But we know the choice that would make things beneficial for us as a whole. It isn’t skin color, the hue of the flag or a certain sect for these are the things that fuel separatism and competition. Competition amongst ourselves has destroyed us komrades! Instead of outdoing each other we must coalesce towards the common goals.     Malcom X stated “we have a common enemy, we have this in common, we have a common oppressor, a common exploiter and a common discriminator, but once we all realize that we have a common enemy, then we unite on the basis of what we have in common”.     I conclude this by quoting the komrade Benny Hannibal Rasun or the Free Alabama Movement, “its revealing that we are housed in institutions whose security is predicated on our remaining ignorant”

Resist Now

By Anarchist Prisoner Sean Swain 

It is easy to fall into the prison trap of imagining who we are going to be and what we are going to do when we get out. This is something of a past-time in prison, creating wonderful futures in our minds.     

It is an effective way to avoid the awful now. And when we avoid the awful now, we engage in a kind of escapism, a self-defeating escapism that contributes to this awful now.     

So, what would happen if, instead of dreaming of some future fantasy, we started to imagine what we can do right now? We are not paralyzed by anything other than our own lack of imagination. We are not held back by anything other than our own fear.    

We can start like this. We can imagine that we ourselves are the warden. What would we hate to see happen? If we were in the warden’s shoes, what kinds of things would make it difficult to keep the prison going?     

Look around. There are all kinds of things you can break without getting caught, or jam, or steal. Little things. But the little things add up. One toilet flushing will cost the prison more money on the water bill. A hundred toilets flushing at the same time will bust the plumbing. Two thousand toilets flushing over and over, will destroy shit.     

We outnumber them. We’re smarter than them. We have more to lose and more to gain. If we can just get our heads out of “when we get out”, and get our heads in the now, we can resist and we can change the conditions right now.     

Tomorrow is not promised to any of us.     

We have now. Right now.     

Imagine. Share. Resist.

AKA Don Mall

I done lost every thing and still I stand

The judge sentenced me to life without
But still I stand and I fight cause I know one day I will stand on my 10 toes

To help others not go down my footsteps cause the streets don’t love no one and violence ain’t the way of life 
It only takes life.
Black lives.
And why we help knock our beautiful race off with black on black crimes.
90% of guys lock up for doing some to there own race!
Today I stand on my 10 to be a leader and help make a change for black lives.

Unconstitutional but justified through our ignorance

By Ladarius Colbert
Comrade BLAQMAN at Hays

This message is to the entire offender population in Georgia. Wake the fuck up and put the differences of frivolous matters to the side. Our state of being is literally worsening as time past. Generally because of our ignorance we are subjected to various forms of maltreatment such as poor living conditions, deprivation of adequate/sufficient medical service, ridiculous restrictions are being imposed upon our right to correspond with society, and worst of all our likely livelihood is that a high risk because of ineffective security guidelines. Nevertheless, we have no one to blame but ourselves due to our inactiveness and ignorance. Our ignorance is their (GDOC) capital (profit) literally!     

One major example is unpaid labor – in accordance to the “Working Against Recidivist Act (GA.L. 2005 p.1222, OCGA 42.5-60, and the Fed. Prison Industrial Enforcement Enhancement Cert Program (18 USC sect. 1761) brothers that work under private contractors such as Aramark, Optics, and GCI tag plants can get paid a set wage for their labor. Thus, since it is a legislature issue those same brothers must take this issue to the Civil courts. According to OCGA 42.10-14 the GCIA is authorized to compensate their workers. If I am not mistaking at Smith State Prison 15 prisoners are being paid an allowance under the PIE program. in result of a collective effort to litigate one will accumulate fund to pay restitution / State fees, child support, commissary funds, and enable one to have funds saved up upon release and more. This is a statewide calling to my comrades. Use the insight to enlighten, mobilize and eventually overcome. Less talk more action. Loyalty and power comrade BLAQMAN.
