Georgia prisons Universal Declaration of Human Rights Complaint

I am a prisoner in the State of Georgia that seeks to enforce the civil rights of all human beings and of all ethnic groups. I have attempted to bring an inhuman living conditions case against the prison system and on the behalf of all similarly situated. The complaint is set out below.

Sir, it is clear after presenting these issues to two courts and the Attorney General of Georgia that these officials do not care that the lives of many are in grave danger.

We are seeking the assistance of your office. The name and address of the prison, Attorney General, and the federal judge is listed at the end of this communique.

Shocking Inhuman history of prison conditions case

On July 10, 2016, Plaintiff, Robert F. Smith, submitted for filing his 42 U.S.C. 1983 Civil Rights complaint wherein he demonstrated with documentary evidence that some forty thousand (40,000) individual human beings from all ethnic groups were being subjected to inhuman and barbaric living conditions.

Smith further demonstrated that many of the individual human beings from all ethic groups were being denied the mandated protection of prison authority from the attacks of certain gang affiliated inmates. That the individuals from all ethic groups in which requested from prison authority the protection from certain affiliated gang members were then punished by, and are still being punished, prison authority by placement in a mandatory nine months lockdown disciplinary program wherein all inmate personal property and store privileges have been taken.

Smith's complaint named as Plaintiffs David Cordova, and all others similarly situated. Said complaint was filed in the Middle District Federal Court in Macon, Georgia, on July 13, 2016.

On August 18, 2016, Federal Judge Marc T. Treadwell dismissed Smith's civil rights complaint in its entirety on the premise that the plaintiffs could not joint together in a single action.

Smith's complaint further demonstrated that every single standard operating procedure written to govern the running of the prison was not being adhered to, that because said SOPs were not being followed by prison authority, many many individuals from all ethnic groups constitutional rights were being violated, i.e.
Right to be free from physical abuse
Right to due process
Right to equal protection
Right to be free from cruel and unusual punishment

Smith further presented the failure of prison authority to follow their standard operating procedures to the state court as required in the form of an extra ordinary emergency of writ of mandamus, as of date that action is being held up by the state courts with nothing having been brought before same and having been ruled on.

Prison authority have minimized the ventilation in each inmate cell dramatically by placing iron metal plates over each and every ventilation duct and throughout the entire prison.

The obstruction of ventilation by the iron metal plates combined with heat places us human beings in a substantial risk of deceases such as tuberculosis as well as:
1. Most of the time it feels as if one's chest is heavily burdened with a huge amount of weight due to the lack of clean air.
2. Severe burning sensation in chest with mild to severe dizziness.
3. Tingling sensation in ones limbs from a lack of oxygen in ones body.

When the plaintiff stand with their nose stuck directly into the 4 by 21 inch window opening, the conditions start to subside.


Due to the rooms being so closed up with no ventilation and a very small window opening between say 4:00 hours and 13:00 hours the temperatures are between 85 to 95 degrees. Between 13:00 and 19:00 hours the temperatures reach between 95 to 105, maybe 110 because the sun makes direct contact with the back side of rooms. Plaintiffs suffers the following list of health problems: 1. headaches, 2. nausea, 3. loss of appetite, 4. loss of weight, 5. severe inability to sleep on plastic mattresses, or 6. to breath at time.
