Greetings friends, family of incarcerated luv ones. In Fall 2019 we will no longer be allowed to send / receive email from anyone not on our approved visitation list. There is now a spot for email address on the approval form. I just think that is TMI! What has that to do with the rehab of the offenders?
Not everyone has a visitor to begin with. I say that it’s a crude way to taint our reconciliation with society. Shout out comrade Shine White (N.C.). This isn’t just taking place in your state. In GA our trust funds have been restricted for more than 10 yrs. from family and friends. But now the through the commissioner’s office we are being barred from a simply electronic letter. With people who love us, care about us and support us with pics, videograms and words.
If this tactic excels I’ll go from 7 to 2 contacts. I’m indignant because my birth cousin who helps me with communication between my sick mother won’t be able to contact me anymore. In a world of modern technology snail mail is being becoming obsolete. Some offenders communicate with their child mothers, lawyers, cousins, school buddies, etc. through email. Do we see significance in this??
I spoke with a JPay rep and asked why the video visits become restricted to “approved visitors” only? Why aren’t we allowed pics of our wives/significant others in negligee? Why family/friends can’t fund our media account directly from the web? He said, quote “…All of these things are accessible in other states; but the GA DOC are the ones restricting us…” unquote.
So, Mister commissioner, why do you and your board of directors oppress us in this manner? Family/friends please contact the commissioner’s office and urge them to stop the madness!! For the welfare of the offender.
Commissioner Timothy C. Ward

The government is pimpin’ the Blaqman, Illuminati runs the world, so fuk pimpin’ my pen. I’d rather help my community, Lil’ Chico looks up to me. Disappointed with myself of how I abandoned the streets… Blinded by greed returned me back to slavery; it’s more than a G-thang. It’s bigger than you & me. We need our cribs in our names; boss up our economical game, I hated to slang crack cocaine. I witnessed Momdukes lose everythang; plus I never gang-banged… What if I made 1 person smile today? I’ll set the trend here; because I’m told FAITH is contagious. It takes more muscles to frown, so I’ll smile away. I can’t predict tomorrow but I can save today. Give us back our country; not Amerika but the one you stole from me. Wanna kno’ what I hate more than cops? A thief…
I’ve studied the history and FREEDOM is owed to me. I just keep it BLAQ like we’s supposed to be… Shot outs to Lupe, Wale and Nasir Jones. Larry Hoover, Tookie Williams and James Brown. B.O.B., Big K.R.I.T. and Killer Mike. Kaepernick, Stacey Abrams, Condoleezza Rice. King Coe; and I’m prepping Amerika for her future. Our brothers are on the way and they gone be remembered like Malcolm and Luther…
Why expose brains when I can expose truths! The proof is right between the pages of this book, young dude. I can’t believe I said no to school, rebelled and broke the rules. Smoked weed, cut class or even fought in school. But it’s what I was taught to do…
Please become someone, become MORE than the average dude. Don’t get blinded by REALITY T.V. like most people do, and DYING is not worth putting our mom’s thru. And killing ain’t really worth living our lives like fools… By O.G. King Coe

Here I will describe a flawed committee called: Classification, in which prisoners are housed in like dormitories and/or cells with similar prisoners according to crime, age, size, height, and affiliations. All which basically means that our lives are subject to be taken at any moment because the system is so flawed.
In the GDC we have what is called ”Jscribe”. And it is a computer file that possess our entire institutional record and the classification ”committee” uses the info to assign us details and housing status. It consists of from my knowledge: D/W of C and T, Captain, Chief Counselor, an L.t. and a Sgt.” But prisoners aren’t given the opportunity to be present at there convenings, at least not here. There is a ”blue strip” that is in constant motion across the top of each prisoners page which identifies certain ”security risks or medical issues, etc.” that apply to that person. For instance I’ve saw some that say: Learning Disability, do not house with codefendant (which can’t be too accurate because I was housed with my codefendant at 2 different prisons) and Vegan Menu. But one that I saw in 2011 said: Do not house with prea victim, such and such. At the time I was slightly familiar with the Prison Rape Elimination Act. But ignorant of the ”Aggressor” label. When I saw my file in 2018, I did not see this ”tag” but somehow, I seem to only be placed into these Prea/Aggressor dormitories from prison to prison within the last 4 and 1/2 years. Georgia, Hays, Macon and Hays State Prisons. So, I inquired about it. I believe that I’m old enough, wise enough and have been in the system long enough to be able to be removed from these atrocious environments. It is stereotypical to house prisoners in this extremely stressful capacity when everyone overall, in some format, qualify to be house in a close-security prison. I’ve been in prison for 10 years. I’m 35 and tired of these dormitories. If I have managed to survive this dangerous lifestyle over this amount of time without major incident: is it safe to say that I’m capable of upgrading my living arrangements? When will I be housed in a more safer and sane dorm? My work, respect, image, ethics, presentation, institutional record all speaks for itself. By response to my inquiry, as of 4-15-18 I was removed from the aggressor label. I’ve been to Tier 1 on 2 occasions but was still placed in one of the aggressor dorms. But the irony about this system is that while though my dorm is considered the worst on the compound miraculously we have the least violence throughout the entire prison and more targeting from administration for just being who we are: the stereotypes, outcasts, thugs, gangster, hoodlums, criminals, addicts or whatever you feel the need to label us? Think about?

I remember reading about ”gangbanging for a purpose”. Lately I have been dwelling on the topic because in 2016 a prisoner that I knew had been down close to 10 and couldn’t be released, because he didn’t have an address to parole out to. He was a gang member. So, why couldn’t those ”Brothers” of his provide housing for him? What was the purpose of being adopted into ”the family” if it couldn’t provide for him like family did? Or maybe the individual never looked at it in that light? You are brothers, right? Then serve your purpose. I once saw a guy who was going home in a manner of months, “go in” on another prisoner who had done whatever he had done to violate. If he was my ”Brother” I wouldn’t have allowed him to “fail”. Now this man is on the verge of being here longer and kept away from the ones who really love and need him. Many more will suffer similar fates if we don’t find our purpose. Shot out to my bros in SMU world wide! Stay focused. Swuanyae Lyfestyle!
