Title: Sad But True
Author: Lamar Westside Gates
The word help never be heard, but fuck you get an answer
Talkin with sense, they turn their nose like you’re a dirty pamper.
But I’m the crazy one if you let them tell it, Respect goes a long way but not in this pace!
If you not part of the elite, you get beat to sleep.
Most e-mails dont go out cause they dont want the heat.
Inmates wanting to be officers dying to speak, Sir I’ll pack his Property and destroy his good.
Most in the step-down lost and can’t be found, what I mean bout that, inmates will lock you down.
For a detail and packout sir I’ll tell it all, to show you I’m not playing #— got a phone.
Now you see what I’m talking bout fuck the step-down,
For four hours and T.V.s these killers become police.
But I’m the crazy one cause I wanna be free!
I’ll die before I fold, starve before I break,
Never will I help the Pigs OPPRESS Inmates.
The unsoothing sight of an unsettling picture welcomes misery in this traumatized moment. Silently we reflect on the things that brought us happiness and joy rather than the possibility of a future that offers discomfort.
The sudden sounds of distress piercing the tranquility of one’s mental solitude often times shatters what hope remains for reformation and rehabilitation, disrupted by the mighty roars of the affects of suffering from incarceration.
The root of our shortcomings has introduced us to a world of violence, racism, corruption, deprivation and other injustices. But recapturing an accurate understanding of black history could excite transitioning if we’re lucky.
Coming to fruition, surrounded by chaos, is a positive awakening, stemming from decades of my people participating in our own dehumanization, ridding ourselves of all senses of humiliation.
It wasn’t by chance that we were born blacc in America, where we’re considered pariahs defined by our skin color by a system of white supremacists who set traps to dismantle us.
It is only necessary we determine the content of our character by replaying the history of our lives as well as those of our ancestors, present times used to bring awareness to our youth of future scenarios.
How much work is required to repair the damage done? Where there’s a lack of fire in the drive of our adolescent sons, death or incarceration will be the outcome once that candle has burned…

My name is Charles Shepard #1001527186. I am housed in the Georgia Diagnostic & Classification Prison – Special Management Unit (SMU).
Anyhow, there is a class action against this prison headed by Human Rights Attorney Ryan Primerano, phone # (404)688-1202 extension (404)688-9440.
I hate the system! Have been fighting them for almost 20 years. Anyhow, I have organized a hunger strike involving approx. 8 inmates, with more to join. This will start 1-30-18. I need the public to know. I will try to explain our situation, my hands hurt as I have been writing all day.
We are not receiving Recreation at all. Some people do, but the majority of us have been placed on Red. Restriction which is illegal. When you first arrive here, you don’t receive it at all for 90 days.
Our property is held for 90 days. Religious, legals, personal mail, hygiene. We don’t receive proper cell sanitation. Our food portions are very small. Our counselors don’t come around when they are supposed to. We are not given books to read. And many other issues.
I was told a little about what you do and am very interested in getting involved. I’m down to 18 months left, but have some new bogus charges that I’m representing myself in. I’m 37, white male, associate’s degree in psychology; theology and currently studying law; language; Islam and electronics. I’m very intelligent and hate the government. I am a Muslim (not a terrorist) I am actually Sunni. I am very interested in corresponding with anyone who wants to and can discuss just about any subject, will accept mail from any race, religion, sex or creed.
Please do what you can to get my info out there in the mainstream. Mailing info:

Higher elevation to the comrades behind enemy lines at Jackson State diagnostic prison. I can readily sympathize with Rocky Loc and prayers have been submitted for your liberation. I have been victimized similarly with tactical, oppressive, malevolent and unsanitary, unsafe unconstitutional, inhumane living and starvation while serving time in GSP from 2012-2016. Your voices are heard my brother. Never feel that you are alone. LT Russo and his higher compatriots will receive their just rewards.
I will aid you in destroying these imperialistic slave plantations. For now; I must remain anonymous. To each and every one of you Uncle Tom prisoners that wash your brother’s trays with a water hose and fail to stand up or sit down to build an equipped complex or have that entire Plantation close down and condemned: YOU are ENSLAVED and don’t even know it!
The comrades who I’ve bid with wouldn’t last 30 days there. Too much unity and heart amongst us. Every guard that has forced your brethren to eat food off of molded and fungi laced trays; a straight up BITCHES!!
Do you know that you’re paid to enslave your own people?? How can you face your own family knowing that you are abusing and slowly killing a mother’s son or A daughter’s father? You are helping kill off your own seeds. What an idiot you are! So much deaf, dumb, blind stupidity you possess. That you are no better than a misled and unguided gangbanger that robs and kills his classmate for a pair of Jordan’s.
Brethren in SMU: first of all congrats to the ones who made it out and are being housed elsewhere. Walk light gentlemen. No matter what race, color, or creed believe that justice orgs are taking notice within Georgia. Slaves are being freed and are exercising their rights to help us liberate the imprisoned from the clutches of capitalistic imperialism. We are becoming one across all walks of life.
With each stroke of our pens; each book read; each lock of wisdom passed down; each prayer sent up above; each mind awaken; we are chipping into the iceberg. We are united in the living tombstone of slavery in modern mankind. Realize, Mr. Officer that the ILLUMINATI is going to discard your carcass once you have served your purpose in their evil diabolical plot of New World Order domination. The journey continues…

Rosa Parks a part of me, I refuse to move my feet
No, I’m not Dr. King, but I got a lotta dreams
Trying to be astronaut, outer here, yes indeed!
Speaking like Malcolm got me X out, watch me bleed,
No Johnnie Cochran in my life so I’m doing life.
My Madame C. J. Walker tryin to get my head right,
But I need dat Bob Marley just to get my head right.
What happened to date Condaleeza Rice’s who can make it right?
American soldiers dying fighting da wrong fight
Dat ‘N’ Word got so much Power messing up life
We use it all day, but others do, it ain’t right!
I’m in a race running to make things right
Too many voices in silence dying to talk,
You wishing for a Coretta but will you treat her right
Who are you to tell me that I can’t date white?
Don’t try to block da love I have to give, it don’t matter yo color, love is real.
We put our faith and values in da wrong things, it’s no secret the police been killing brothers, black on black crime, it’s da same, killing brothers.
When we all gon come together as one? Why we only come together for football and basketball games? How come it takes pain and tragedy to make us same? If we all get on the same page, things will change.
I want to tell you dis, dis my response to all dat’s going on.
We need more Jackie Robinsons of every race to break the barrier.
What Trump been doing planed facts, if he don’t play by dey rules, he become da X man assassinated like da rest Man…

Suicide thoughts be on my mind, but da love I got for Grandma keeps me alive,
all dis time on my back got me working out. Every case I’mma read to find a way out
Pill call no help cause da pain don’t sleep, got no time to rest so I get no sleep.
Every time I close my eyes I be back on my feet, tray call, shower call, I be missing da streets.
And da numbers I be calling be a game of chess, sometimes I get an answer cause it kills da stress.
But da staff breath hate dey words be fake, put on for da camera just so dey can get paid, but you wrong if you don’t take missing portions from a styrofoam tray, come round for inspection, dey don’t hear shit day you say!
Put in a sick call, don’t get seen but dey get Paid, call dey name and write it up, dey gone drop yo Phase, tell you what you wanna hear, then be on dey way. ACT OUT, GET SPRAYED sometimes be da only way cause dey don’t give a Phuck bout what you say!
Talking civilized and v with respect gets you azz to kiss, belligerency and warring bring accomplishments.
Inmate why you acting childish and untamed?
“Because my needs are ignored, an undomesticated treatment! Should I go on because there is more.”
Really it’s no need cause you don’t care!
Just want me to be a bobblehead and say, ‘Yes master I understanding,’ with dat ‘you be a good boy’ grin on yo face, while you walk off with yo klan co-workers saying, ‘See, dey all the same’ (facts).
Well I got news for ya, keep playing and don’t RECTIFY MY CIRCUMSTANCE, REBELLIOUS I’LL BE UNTIL YOU KILL ME FACTS! AND I KNOW YOU DON’T CARE TRUE COLD HEARTED FACTS…
Rush Limbaugh put out false information as to the arctic ice cap expanding over 500,000 square miles. Yet the truth is the polar ice cap has melted and receded probably twice that many miles within the past 30 years. The earth is on the ledge of extinction and all Trump is focused on is making money from investments in fossil fuels through the different business ventures he and his KKKronies are pursuing. Is climate change real? It’s as real as the living breaths we humans take in order to continue living. So the question is why the humans on this planet are allowing themselves to be manipulated into believing we as a whole are not destroying ourselves, but most importantly our future existence. Around this planet food sources are rapidly disappearing! The soils in all corners of this world have been gradually poisoned and are now producing less than mankind has ever known. Sooner than later the Earth won’t be able to sustain life, which will be the end to our existence. The super rich are building all types artificial environments in both inner and outer space hoping their efforts will allow them and their children to survive what they know is the inevitable. It’s like they want to see if they can accomplish what was shown on the TV series “100”. They will be sadly mistaken in their deliberate ignoring of scientific fact, the climate decline and effect are real. In Broward County Florida, the local government accept the reality of the sea level rising due to global warming and have / are taking steps to adapt to the eventual event of flooding and the submerging of its coastal land and properties that sit on the land. Every means to elevate land and buildings on beachfront properties are being put into action. It’s clear the effects of global warming will negatively affect humans economically and physically in too many ways to count. There will be food shortages around this globe which will leave millions to suffer a life of starvation and deprivation. The world as a whole will eventually become one of violence and desperation. Only the strong and determined will find ways to survive. The super rich are building space stations in order to survive and avoid the perils of the dead and dying Earth. As food sources disappear the common man and woman will come to the realization that their labor was used to bring about their very own suffering and eventual extinction of all on this dying planet. This is the legacy humans are leaving for future generations to come. Is climate change real? Rest assured it’s as real as the nose on your face!

SMU (Stressing More Unity)
Tier III SMU in Jackson, GA houses almost 200 inmates: six dorms, 32 inmates each dorm, two sides east and west side which hold three dorms apiece. Each dorm is supposed to have two floor officers and each side (east/west) supposed to have one transport officer. I’ve been housed here going on two years and the facility has been understaffed the whole time. You’re lucky to have 1 dorm officer most times one officer is overseeing at least two if not all three dorms on the side. Which if it’s an emergency we are forced to kick on the door for long periods of time just to get help. Two months ago a man hung himself he was dead in his cell for five or six hours before they found out. The only reason they found out then was because the officer was serving breakfast.
Tier III is the best example of dehumanizing you get here they keep you locked down for 90 days no recreation, no phone, no nothing. You go see the doctor for health issues he only has two answers: stop working out, drink more water. The facility doesn’t have a dishwasher so the trays are washed with a water hose, green yellow mold growing on the trays. Most of the time if you complain it’s either take the tray or don’t eat.
Constantly being denied our due process grievances not getting processed or properly investigated. If administration doesn’t like you and are on duty when your family comes to visit they will turn your family around and make up a false reason (Lt. Russo). The warden of all care and treatment, security and unit manager abuses his job being that he has to sign off on order forms for books. He’s coming up with new things you have to do to receive books and still denies request after they’ve met the criteria.
This is supposed to be a behavior program but there isn’t no release date majority have been here 4 years or better. The program at most doesn’t supposed to exceed 18 months with good behavior.
None of the toilets work properly yet we are limited to flushes per hour showering in cells with no proper cleaning supplies.
Mail being refused and not being able to send it home it’s automatically destroyed.
In two years no more than 15 people have left–nine of them had filed a lawsuit. Parole wants nothing to do with you if you’re housed here or transition centers they constantly jumping on you or doing some type of harsh punishment not feeding you.
It’s gon take outside help to make a change. We constantly say Black Lives Matter not everybody feel that way. The Captain, Warden and superintendent are black here and they allowing a white man, Lt. Russo, to do as he pleases.
People are so ignorant and stubborn they’ll continue to not get unified because of little boy reasons the fight Behind These doors is against the oppressor administration. All Lives Matter if you think so you should have no problem with us ALL getting together.
Buried Alive In A Steel And Concrete KKKoffin, By The Dark and Twisted Madness OF The Imperialist/KKKapitalist’s plots and schemes, to subjugate the BLACK, BROWN, POOR Caucasian, and 1ST NATION’S to Oppression/Exploitation for Economic/Social KKKontrol of The World ………Thus the Oppressed Soul is forced to awaken, and in doing so,a Spirit of Revolutionary Rebellion is kindled and fueled by a KKKonstant suffering at the hands of a Immoral Mechanisms, that was KKKreated and designed to use/abuse Humans who have been deliberately disenfranchised, inorder to Enrich The 1%, while KKKontrolling every aspect of The Downtrodden lives, in hopes of keeping them from being able to take back Their Liberties/Freedom, by Rebelling, Resisting, and Defying the Imperialist/KKKapitalistic Machine…. The Revolutionary Flame burns Intensely like a Wilrfire, in The Hearts and Souls of those who’ve been conceived by and in This Struggle, to be FREE!!! YES!!!To be FREE, from Spiritual, Mental, Physical, Economical, Physiological, and Social Deprivations so without hesitation or Fear The Revolutionary Mindstate/Flame Rages Determinedly through The AGES, never to be quelled by or extinguished by any of The OPPRESSORS attempts….. As one Comrade transitions another is conceived and takes his/her place Upholding and pushing forward The Revolutionary Principals/MINDSTATE for The Next Generation,in HOPES of one Day being FREE to live as FREE HUMANS on this planet we call Earth!
