Jails just as bad as prisons
We talk a lot about what's going on in the prison system but what about what's going on in the county jails? The Los Angeles County Jail (MCJ) where the infamous headquarters is located is like CDCR's notorious "green wall". Operation Safe Jail (OSJ) is no more than a prison gang, more so than those who are validated and serving time in CDCR's SHU facilities. Just like the green wall, they bet on human cock fights and beat you down to the point where you can't even walk anymore. In prison I dropped out of a prison gang and have been doing my time in SNY facilities also know as PC (Protected Custody).
In August 2009, as I was getting booked through the LA County Jail processes and being interviewed by officers. I informed them that I was put on the hit list by a [lumpen organization] member and was put in PC in State Prison and that I should be put into PC in the county jail as well since I still do fear for my life and safety. They housed me in high power fish roll 4500 for 3 weeks with no contact with anybody, no visit, no phone calls, nothing. After that I was interviewed by OSJ and I explained to them my situation and they promised to put me in PC. But to my surprise they lied to me because I was declassed to General Population. I did start to refuse but officers grabbed me, by twisting my arms they forced me to walk to another floor where I was to be housed in GP. I refused and pulled away from their torturing grasp. They took me down and beat me with unnecessary force. They tasered me while I was on the ground for a long, long time. After I passed out. I awoke to them still beating on me hand cuffed. They were even tasering my hand cuffs.
When it was all over they promised to put me in PC if I did not say anything to the lieutenant or anybody while they put me on camera where I was to be asked some questions that I was to answer "I don't want to talk about it" to every question, or I would be put back into GP. So I did what I was told for fear of my safety. To my surprise I was medically cleared and they put me in a cell in Green Light Fish Roll for PC process. They also told me that if I had any complaints they would put me in GP.
I really needed to see a doctor again. But I couldn't ask for fear that I would be put in GP so I did what they told me. Well, everybody else on Fish Roll heard my cries of pain and suffering and they called "man down" for me which I begged them not to for fear that they would think I'm still complaining. They finally came (officers and nurses) and took me to the MCJ's clinic where they transported me to LCMC where they discovered that I have a collapsed lung. It it wasn't for everybody calling man down for me I would have died that night.
Of course they lied on the report and submitted it to the DA for prosecution. They gave me 2 years with 1/2 for resisting. I am now in prison because LA County failed to serve and protect, as their motto says.
