Confederate Prisons have away of tailoring and covering up the conditions of confinement that could be considered unconstitutional; unjust and flavored with racial hate. My parents who were law abiding citizen always described ignorance as someone not knowing. They defined someone that did know, but continued to engage in ignorance as being foolish. I have been both ignorant as well as foolish. I can admit this. I can also recognize it in other people as well as agencies.
Once upon a time prison workers, that held anti-African American views worked clandestinely in oppressing. Now they are more open; and surgically experience at racial endeavors. Especially in North Carolina Prisons.
Situations concerning harsh and cruel conditions of confinement is no secret to the North Carolina Department of Public Safety, the USDOJ, FBI, SBI, U.S Marshall Service The U.S. Federal Courts and Local Courts. I know this to be true because I personally made communication with them myself through correspondence. they contacted the Secretary of Prisons. The Secretary of prisons pass the information down through he chain of command and it eventually finds it’s way to the prison administrator that give or show it to the individuals that it was written on. And they pass the information to guess who?
A prisoner that was shipping out slide this complaint under my door that I wrote and mailed out at Tabor Correctional Institution to the U.S. Department of Justice. Now my question is how did a prisoner who is a gang member get a letter that was going to the USDOJ?
Shortly after I mailed this letter I thought went out. I found glass in my lotion while in longterm solitary confinement. My food was laced with something that was indigestible of three different occasions, when certain guards were present I didn’t eat. Sometimes I only ate one meal a day which was served by a shift that was less irrational.
Our government is always quick to raise issues about the torture of other countries, but is slow to correct the torture and unconstitutional acts of their own Confederate Corrections Facilities.
I found out about an inmate Michael Anthony Kerr death on Friday December 26, 2014 in an article written by Joseph Neff of the Charlotte Observer. His mental health record was used to justify unfit Confederate Corrections, at Alexander Prison
On 7·21·15 in the Fayetteville Observer I found out his family was awarded $2.5 million for his death. That a federal investigation was ongoing. The sad thing about the whole thing is that the newspapers, the courts, and law enforcement agencies are missing the big picture. You have Caucasian Americans that have desires of being oppressive to individuals they do not see as equal in a human aspect. I’ve seen a prisoner tell a Prison Guard Happy Martin Luther Day, and was placed in solitary confinement, and charged $10.00 for disrespect.
A prisoner that wrote out the monthly meals wrote “BLD” for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner was given another 180 days in longterm solitary confinement, and charged $10.00 for gang material. The prison guard said the “BLD” stood for the gang “Bloods”
Confederate Correction Facilities are real and deadly. Like Tabor Correctional. It is ran by a family oriented system. They call their facility the “Rock” like in “David Baldacci” book the “Great Divine”. Someone within the administration at Tabor had to read this book, to many similarities, only without the deaths. Prisoners complaints are useless. We write a grievance. Someone who bares the same name and striking features answer or bring back the reply. Which is usually in favor of their parent, cousin, sister, brother or spouse.
Incidents like Michael Anthony Kerr happen because prison guards criminal behavior is ignored. Mr. Kerr situation is just one apple that fail off the apple tree of prison corruption.
The prison “big wigs” that are justifying these prison guard’s actions once did similar deeds. This is not something I think. This is something I know. The only way to fix N.C. Prisons Problem is to start at the top and work it’s way to the bottom about like the complaint you just read to the U.S.D.O.J did that the prisoner slide under my door.
