Happy Holidays Everyone! I pray that this message finds all of you doing well. Without a doubt, the holiday season is a rough time for those incarcerated in Amerikan prisons and jails.
Suicides are an un-wanted but common occurrence especially for prisoners who are forced to endure the torture of solitary confinement.
The State of Texas has labeled their solitary confinement units as Administrative Segregation Units. Texas has been allowed to transform these places into horrible places where un-mentionable human rights abuses take place.
For some strange reason Mainstream Media Correspondents have ignored my pleas for coverage and help.
In 2018 I’d like to see a change. I’d like to form a coalition of journalists and activists who are willing to confront the corrupt prison agency in Texas. I’d like us to start holding the Texas Prison Agency (TDCJ) accountable for the destruction of humyn lives.
It is a well known fact that Ad-Seg has a detrimental effect on a human being’s psyche. Prison officials may be held liable for denying to a prisoner humane conditions of confinement — this falls under the rule that an official’s deliberate indifference to a substantial risk of serious harm to a prisoner violates the cruel & unusual punishment clause of the US Constitution’s 8th Amendment. In 2018 please try and begin to listen to Prisoner Voices.
Enjoy your holiday and keep me in your thoughts and prayers. –Keith ‘Comrade Malik’ Washington
