OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY MEDICAL CENTER HIRES TORTURER-RAPIST TREVOR MATTHEW CLARK AS LEGAL COUNSEL, PUTS PATIENTS AND STUDENTS IN DANGER

By Anarchist Prisoner Sean Swain

In October 2018, Trevor Matthew Clark left his position as Assistant Chief Counsel with the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction (ODRC), becoming legal counsel for the Ohio State University Medical Center. In his prior employment, Clark supervised a domestic torture program for the Ohio prison system. The torture he oversaw was admittedly employed as a response to “ideological” offenses, to punish and break political undesirables for their beliefs. Clark alleged that he tortured prisoners on orders of the FBI.

I was one of those prisoners. For a year, I was subjected to a program of sleep deprivation, filthy environs without adequate soap or laundry, and starvation rations that caused me to go from 220 pounds to 155 pounds. As part of the torture regimen, during the winter, I was held in a cell where the outer window was unattached, causing me to endure intolerable cold, continually, for months. Clark intercepted mail and then provably lied to the FBI to provoke investigation after investigation. His mail theft severed my human relationships and caused me total isolation from the outside world. Clark created a “training” program to indoctrinate staff to think of me as a terrorist and then unleashed them to torment me while I was locked away and incommunicado.

Clark’s domestic torture program took pages right out of the CIA KUBARK manual, replicating the program for torture at Abu Ghraib in Iraq.

In the middle of this year-long torture program, on March 27, 2012, Clark personally interrogated me and, when alone with me, he grabbed my crotch and attempted to solicit humiliating sex acts as quid pro quo to make the frame-up that he had engineered “go away.” When I did not acquiesce, he spent several years tormenting me and burning my life down, creating pretexts for my continued punishment, designed to discredit me and make me die in prison.

My sworn testimony relating details of torture and sexual abuse, related to human rights claims in international court, will soon be online at seanswain.org and @swainrocks.

In October 2018, Ohio State University Medical Center hired this sexual predator and criminal against humanity. Clark now has direct access to young, vulnerable, impressionable students and to defenseless, unsuspecting patients.

Anyone troubled by this should contact OSU Medical Center’s board of directors to demand they fire Trevor Matthew Clark. If you know students or staff, forward this article to them and encourage them to take immediate action to protect themselves and others. Urge them to circulate his photograph and to demand his termination.

Nonstudents can begin a petition drive at change.org, boycotting OSU until this sexual predator is removed. OSU Medical Center is no place for a rapist and torturer to wander the halls, seeking victims and using ruthless lawyer tricks to silence anyone coming forward. #metoo. #trevormatthewclark.

SOS From Holman: Suffocating Heat

June 24. 2009
Dearest Insight Family,
Thank you for the note of your support and solidarity. I pray that all who read this have a caring enough heart to call to this prison and to any local media outlets and kick up a little dust for us here at Holman. I am in a Security Housing Unit cell for 24 hours a day. I am in a cell with absolutely zero ventilation. The administration keeps blowing smoke saying that they are preparing to install air conditioning. But, what about the days and nights of agonizing heat we have to suffer through? What about being literally drenched in sweat for at least 21 out of the 24 hours in a day? Is it humane that we are forced to lay our mattresses on the floor by the door so that we can catch what little air comes under the crack of the door at the bottom? There are 6 exit doors. They could be opened to provide an added breeze but that is out. The warden says no. The tray slots could be left open to give a little relief, but, not that as well. I truly believe that it would be found much cooler in a city animal shelter. If the temp outside is 90, it most likely would about 105-107 with the heat index in the cells. As I write this I’ve used my face towel to wipe my sweaty face and chest 6 times. This is cruel and unusual treatment at its best. All the ones on the chain of commands hands are tied. Can’t go over the warden. In the coming weeks I predict a number of heat strokes and for some of the men to temporarily lose touch with reality having no respite from this high temperature. I predict a couple of suicide attempts. Hopefully, none are successful. But, my number one prediction is that the powers that be will continue to do nothing if you all in the greater society don’t apply pressure. We are in a concrete and tin building with zero ventilation. Sounds like one of the feared sweatboxes that were to be found on slave plantations!! This a human distress call! SOS!!

Honorably,
Le Barron Craig
