[Control Units] [Westville Correctional Facility] [Indiana]


I have received the 1/95 issue of your newspaper [MIM Notes]. I love the way it’s written. I enjoyed reading the letters the prisoners wrote and sent in plus your answers. I hope to keep reading your paper and hope you keep sending them to me. I probably will be out of prison by September 1995. I’ve been locked up since October 1992.

This is a Maximum or SuperMax prison. We’re only allowed an hour or half hour out of our cell or closet cellbox a day. Plus they have the goon squad or the extraction team. They come in your cell and beat you up and strap you down to your bed if you act like the man you are or don’t want to make your bed up or kick on the door - little things like that. You can’t get out of your cell unless they let you out. Everything here works by electricity.

If a person caught a heart attack or something serious, he can hang it up because you have to be handcuffed behind your back before you can leave the cell. Plus leg shackles. And they’re so scared of you that they get all suited up before they come get you.

That is just a bit of what’s going on at this concentration camp. If you ever truly want to know what’s going on down here, let me know.
