The Use of Solitary Confinement in Virginia Is Inhumane and Unlawful

Posted by on May 13, 2019 in Featured, Mental Illness, Other Issues, Prison Abuse | Comments

It is nothing short of outrageous the way prison officials abuse solitary confinement and then ignore Court Orders to correct their policies and practices. What most of these articles do not tell you is that solitary is often used to punish, totally illegally, inmates who speak out about the many abuses, as they did with me, keeping me in isolation for 1,510 days, when I should not have been in prison at all for those 4 years!

This is a great idea; fantastic, super-duper, and fabulous, all in one! The law to legalize Pot in N J is still pending, but this provision of it is terrific! Keep in mind: despite the growing wave of legalization of Pot, thousands of people still are arrested for possession annually in every state, and even an arrest without conviction, can destroy one’s life. 99 percent of marijuana busts in New Jersey start with an officer reporting...

Excerpts from the Article: Congress and Donald Trump’s fight over his financial records is now on the fast track. Judge Amit Mehta plans next week to weigh the major legal issues raised in President Donald Trump’s challenge of a congressional subpoena for his accounting...

This kind of behavior is exactly what I saw and have been complaining about for years.  The f#%@#$g contractors submit a program which looks good on paper, get the deal, worth tens of millions of dollars, and then do damn near nothing. I SAW it, day in and day out. Like so many good articles, this one is lengthy. For many more examples, and a better understanding of the depth of the fraud, click on The Whole Story.

Federal Bureau of Prisons Elects Not to Renew Contract at the Adams County Correctional Center

Posted by on May 11, 2019 in Featured, Other Issues, Prison Abuse | Comments

This is a little bit of good news in the world of private prisons. CoreCivic Inc. is a total disaster for the inmates they “serve”! They are notorious for their abuse and neglect of inmates. I have omitted most of their self-serving totally false comments from this article. You can read them by opening The Whole Story. It’s bullshit, bullshit, and more bullshit, as all prison reform advocates know all too well.  CCA changed...

Long overdue. Looks good on paper; let’s see if they DO it!  I recall posting an article about Board members sleeping through the hearings! Excerpts from the Article: The Ohio Parole Board, criticized in recent months for having a secretive and arbitrary decision-making process, will become more open under a long list of reforms announced by Gov. Mike DeWine on Wednesday. For the first time, offenders eligible for parole will be allowed...
