Texas steals prisoner property ignores laws

I was recently informed of your publication Under Lock & Key and would like to receive it. I would also like to receive your Texas Pack. For the second time I am aware of TDCJ employees who have used the excuse that uniform commercial code (UCC) is contraband to confiscate prisoners trust property of all kinds. Also, they commit theft of legal notes and commercial study materials and write disciplinary charges resulting in placement into medium and closed custody. Their actions are in violation of the First Amendment and in dishonor of court decisions:

Walter Jones v. Michigan DOC Patricia Caruso et al, 2007 Dist Ct Lexus 72469 Case No. 05-CV-72817-DT

Walter Jones Plaintiff Appelle v. Patricia Caruso et al Def. Appellant 569 F 3d 258 2009 U.S. app. Lexis 13371; 2009 Fed U.S. Ct of app 6 th Circ. No. 05-72817

The following case was from TDCJ Ellis Uni, therefore they are aware of their actions: Harry Kerley v W. Stephens, Civ No H-14 Case 4:14-CV-03491, 2015

From this list of what was taken from me I think you will agree there has been a violation. Step 1 and 2 grievances are useless, just as they were in the Kerly incident and many others. I believe we need a class action law suit. Can you provide information on this or perhaps some legal specialist contacts.

Per usual in these instances of theft the TDCJ officers are acting under "color of law" by using govt forms declaring the property taken as UCC related materials however they do not provide itemized lists of what exactly they have taken.
