Law Enforcement’s Excessive Force is an Epidemic

Originally posted on Prisonmovement's Weblog:

Just this year, the country has seen a rampant plague of violent and excessive force used by law enforcement. The most recent of which is the incident when a police officer in Charlotte, North Carolina shot and killed an unarmed 24-year old former Florida A&M football player.

Early on Saturday morning, Jonathan Ferrell, the victim, was reported to have been in a serious car accident and was out seeking help. It is believed that the severity of the wreck was so intense, Terrell had to “pull himself” from the car. Terrell then struggled to the nearest home to get help, but the woman thought he was a burglar and dialed 911.

Police responded to the call and shot and killed Terrell, who they said acted “aggressively.” Officer Randall Kerrick fired many shots at Terrell, eventually shooting him to death. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department Officials said the shooting was “excessive” and that…

The Art of War: A Memoir of Life in Prison with Mafia, Serial Killers, and Sex Offenders Who Get Stabbed, is one of the few realistic prison stories out there, as author Glenn Langohr has experienced this world himself. This story brings you into the world of prison alliances and the consequences for sex offenders; prison life is a war zone complete with military strategy. I have lived this life and will be the first to say how credible this account is. I’m very impressed with the author’s rise from prison to published author. That’s a rare accomplishment.51ApEJLooyL._SY346_PJlook-inside-v2,TopRight,1,0_SH20_

Statement Suspending the Third Hunger Strike

lockdownpublishing:

The Prisoners Showed a Lot of Character With This Hunger Strike. It isn’t in vain. The Lord is watching and listening to the prayers of many. As an ex prisoner, I can tell you that those prisoners have broke color lines and gang lines to come together for human rights and redemption. They have been promoting peace, yet their accusers, the Gov, his mouthpiece and most of the media hype up terror tactics about gangs. It isn’t over, the momentum has shifted, unseen forces are pushing the victory closer as the spotlight shines brighter. Thanks for all the great reporting.

Greetings of Solidarity and Respect!

The PBSP-SHU, Short Corridor Collective Representatives hereby serve notice upon all concerned parties of interest that after nine weeks we have collectively decided to suspend our third hunger strike action on September 5, 2013.

To be clear, our Peaceful Protest of Resistance to our continuous subjection to decades of systemic state sanctioned torture via the system’s solitary confinement units is far from over. Our decision to suspend our third hunger strike in two years does not come lightly. This decision is especially difficult considering that most of our demands have not been met (despite nearly universal agreement that they are reasonable). The core group of prisoners has been, and remains 100% committed to seeing this protracted struggle for real reform through to a complete victory, even if it requires us to make the ultimate sacrifice.  With that said, we clarify this point by stating prisoner…

Day 52, Prisoners Isolated, Disturbing News from Corocran, Strike Participation Grows, Prisoners Remain Committed: “CDCR is not going to break us.”

hank you for this post! If those prisoners are the worst of the worst, then why are those words so full of truth! God bless the hunger strikers.

California prisoner hungers strike advocates and supporters continue their efforts to compel state decision makers to negotiate with hunger strikers as they endure their 52nd day without food.  Meanwhile legal observers at Corcoran State Prison say that the 70 people are still on strike at that facility are facing harsh relation by prison officials including the denial of medical care—even for those coming off strike—and the confiscation of personal property.  At Pelican Bay, the four main representatives of the Short Corridor Collective—the interracial group in that facility’s Security Housing Unit (SHU) that initially encouraged their fellow prisoners to take up the peaceful protest—have been totally isolated in a single cell block in the prison’s stand-alone Administrative Segregation Unit.  Late last week 51 prisoners being held in the same area were summarily and forcibly removed to other prisons.   Meanwhile the CDCR’s own numbers show a steady uptick in strike participation…

My Friend Todd Ashker: History of a One-Sided Dialogue

lockdownpublishing:

Thank you for this incredibly deep look! The best I’ve seen from the media yet. I spent 10 years in prison on drug charges and 4 years in Solitary before becoming an author. I’m a normal White guy, no gang affiliation, just a former drug addict and dealer. I was involved in a riot where the northern Mexicans rushed the southern Mexicans and I was in the way, and came to the aid of the outnumbered southern Mexicans. From that point on I was mislabeled a southern Mexican in Solitary. After a SHU term they sent me to another prison and put me back in Solitary. Eventually they realized I wasn’t a southern Mexican but tried to coerce me into saying I was from the NLR or AB. It took another 9 months to get out of Solitary. People don’t understand how many people are in Solitary without any due process to get out! That is just the tip of the iceberg. I Published Underdog and Prison Riot to shine a light on these issues.

What pisses me off greatly is that this new order to force feed inmates is the cruelest blow yet. I’ve been through “cell extractions” so I will paint the picture that is happening with the force feeding. A dozen prison guards ( IGI Gooners ) posted outside each cell with gas masks, shields and adrenaline to rush the cell violently with gas and pepper spray and tactics meant to subdue, hurt and humiliate the inmates. Then force feed them. Imagine how weak they are from 45 days of starvation… Who are the real criminals? I believe in the power of prayer, as my mom prayed my writing career into existence from a cell in Solitary. Please say a prayer for the prisoners. God Bless You.

This is the story of my attempts to speak publicly about my friendship with Todd Ashker, a reputed “leader” of the hunger strike in California’s prisons. Since the latest hunger strike began on July 8, the California authorities have targeted…
