Bogus Writeups in North Carolina Extend Solitary
For every infraction we get we are charged $10 and our time on long-term segregation starts over. If a certain officer doesn't like you or they have malice in their heart all they have to do is write you up and $10 is deducted from our personal account. The officers who neglect us of our rights are the same officers that have the power to write us up at any time they feel like whether we are in violation of the rules or not. Because they know it will keep us behind these doors 24 hours a day for another year where we are limited to the opportunity to spread the word and liberate comrades from ignorance and let them know we as one need to stand up against this prison system here in North Carolina.
North Carolina is a state with over 52,000 people incarcerated and more being added daily! The unit I am on is a segregation unit where political prisoners, gang members and others are housed for years at a time. I'd say 30% of the prisoners back here get a write up on a daily basis. Some of us who are in the sights of these tyrant officers receive 5 or 6 write ups a week just because the officers have the power to do so. I strive daily to mitigate our situation. But it's impossible when these guys around me lay down and accept what's going on around them. It's also impossible without access to the public and without help. The money taken from us funds the fascist and imperialistic government of this state.
