RE.,Bias audit of Martin CI
My name is XX. I am a Florida prisoner,housed at
Martin CI. I am writing in the behalf of all prisoners regarding your
9/16/19 audit. We couldn't help but notice that you did not speak with
prisoners, leaving us no choice but to conclude that 1) your are not
working in the interest or welfare of prisoners or society. And 2) You feel
that we are so bell curved that we are not worthy of speaking for ourselves
regarding prison conditions. So how objective can you or your audit be if
it is based only on one side of the system? How much do you care about
genuine rehabilitation or penological interest if you visit a prison for
days,and not consider speaking to prisoners regarding Prison conditions?
It is obvious that you are not interested in implementing genuine
rehabilitation and effective change to this amerikkklan prison industrial
complex. The personality of your auditors showed that you and the state
harbors the very same opinion of prisoners,that everyone in prison is an
animal who deserves to be there and tortured while there. It is clear that
you came to see only the fiscal aspect of Martin CI, while turning a blind
eye on the living conditions and well being of prisoners. It's all about
money for you, so please allow me to inform you of what you chose not to
1. YOUR MEMO
You chose not to notice that the memo informing prisoners of your
visit was posted on 9/13/19,not the mandacious 8/21/19 date it claims. In
fact,fixed prison yard and dormitory video surveillance will show that
prisoners knew nothing of your coming until Martin CI administration went
all in, forcing prisoners to work all through the weekend, prettying up the
plantation for your visit. Sidewalks were pressure washed, trays in the
kitchen we're soaked in soap water overnight in cofinement carts, for mold.
Laundry stayed open all weekend. Dormitories were painted and repainted
with $2 paint,saves money. We thought Donald Trump was coming to visit. Now
had that memo of your visit been posted in time, I would have sent you an
in-advance list of attractive sights to see while on your Martin CI tour. I
still can't believe you didn't see or noticed these inhumane and
contradicting living conditions. Then too, if you did notice them and acted
objectively by moving for genuine rehabilitation and effective change, what
then would happen to FDOC as a 13th Amendment slave housing industry? Too
many people will lose jobs, too many investors will lose money. What makes
us still think, that the state would spend mega millions building
prisons, just to turn around and genuinely rehabilitate itself, and prisoners
into not getting rearrested, or changing the way the state itself, including
law enforcement and state attorneys, see poor and miseducated people. I'm
boring you with this, so I'll get to the point.
2. WHAT YOU CHOSE NOT TO SEE AT MARTIN CI
PHYSICAL ABUSE OF PRISONERS
9/18/19,btwn hours of 3 PM & 7 PM. While you conducted your
psuedo-audit, Sgt. Swain had a handcuffed prisoner, laying on
the hot pavement, in front of the dining hall, in the hot sun, for about 3
hours, because Sgt. Swain caught him coming out of the chow hall with a bag
of ice. How could you have missed that? Or the fact that it is so hot in
the dormitories, that prisoners have to resort to stealing ice from the chow
hall, or take several showers a day despite 5 PM shower rule, or put plastic
bags on windows to direct air flow to themselves, risking confinement
trying to cool ourselves.
While prisoners are being placed in confinement for possession of
tobacco in violation of Christmas.33-401.401, prison staff are smoking
freely, and with impunity, above the law despite FL statutes(944.115)
prohibiting use of tobacco on all state prison property.
Warehouse is filled with long expired and outdated food products, for
prisoners consumption,ordered and delivered that way due to being much
cheaper than what tax payers are charged. So the profit can be pocketed by
Rats: hundreds,if not thousands of them living under the oven in the
baking room of Martin CI kitchen.
Trays,cups,and sporks: Moldy,worn out and torn,and being washed by
hand, in cold water, in giant garbage cans, rather than by dishwashing machine
with legally required water temperature and detergent.
Food Portions: Exiguous,and food is prepared intentionally bad for
the swill and to keep canteen sales up. And prisoners are being rushed to
eat their meals in less than 3 minutes like animals.
Whites and blues being washed together in the same load with no
bleach. Whites (underwears) are coming back literally brown, dirtier than
when turned in, exposing prisoners to jock-itch, urinary track infection and
other dirty under wear related illness. While prisoners are not allowed to
hand wash their whites, or use clothes lines. You need to see how brown, our
whites come back.
Robbing our families, through us, price gouging, way above fair
market price, especially considering the fact that prisoners earn no income
for performance of prison labor, this price gouging amounts to economic
war, not on prisoners, but on families and friends of prisoners, whom are
being punished by the state for supporting prisoners. Prison staff are
paying half price for same like food items that prisoners and their law
abiding civilian visitors are charged double and triple.
Once a week if that. There are never enough staff to conduct
recreation, but there are always more than enough thrill seeking goons when
it's time to apply excessive force on handcuffed prisoners. They appear out
of thin air like magic.
According to facilitators,the head of Martin CI education
department, Dr.Layton, received an annual education budget of only $1500 while
security security has unlimited access to program funds, while canteen
profits pay for the very same handcuffs, pepper spray, tactical gear, and
all else used against prisoners,in what is called the Department of
Corrections. What kind of education can prisoners get on a $1500 budget?
Then you wonder why there are so many stabbings. This is clear proof that
the state and it's avaricious superiors and investors have no interest in
genuine rehabilitation. The worse part is the fact that the state will not
allow prisoners to become independent thinkers capable of determining their
own social and political destiny. We are not allowed to genuinely
rehabilitate ourselves. Not allowed to even order certain books,or
publications,under the guise that certain books can be a threat to the
A prisoner may read a certain books and become too positively or essentially self aware and disciplined. Positive Prisoner self control is the total opposite of FDOC standard of rehabilitation,the dumber a prisoner,the better for FDOC. being autodidactically genuinely rehabilitated is considered the ultimate threat,and a crime to the state. If every Prisoner become genuinely rehabilitated,the prison system will be rendered irrelevant, out of business, obsolete, thus genuine rehabilitation or correction of any kind for prisoners or staff, is no where in FDOC's thought or mission.
JPAY MAIL SERVICE
FDOC is robbing prisoners loved-ones,by use of prisoners,charging
.39¢ per postage stamp which cost only .7¢ wholesale at JPay. A .32¢ profit
per stamp,which go towards buying the very same pepper spray, handcuffs,and
all else used against prisoners. The mosquitoes hate the very same cows off
whose blood they cannot live without.
On 9/11/19,there occurred a multiple prisoner on prisoner stabbing.
The whole plantation was placed on lockdown, collective punishment.
RRT, rapid response teams showed up immediately, many from neighboring
plantations, in full military tactical gear, clicking-illegal-electric tazer
shields and brandishing riot batons to intimidate prisoners while
conducting a mass trashing of prisoners cells and property, claiming a
so-called mass search. So to keep prisoners from informing the free world
of these illegal electric shields and batons, the JPay WiFi was turned off
for almost a whole week. In fact, the WiFi is off as I write this on
9/27/19. It's turned off during every lockdown to keep prisoners from
reporting what's going to the outside world,to keep the truth from getting
out,to kill all transparency. So the story is told only by the real
JPay is taking funds(.39¢ postage)from our prisoner account even
after censoring and denying our Jmail from leaving the JPay kiosk system,or
reaching it's intended destination.
9/3/19, I plugged my tablet into JPay kiosk to download music. I
unplugged my tablet to find that all my political journal notes, essays, and
poems, grievance drafts, legal letters, criminal appeal case citings, the
event and birth dates,i.e.,my entire calendar section, all stored in my
tablet had been illegally accessed, and deleted after being downloaded by
JPay. The JPay trouble ticket response basically told me to get lost.
Informal grievance response stated that I had exceeded the storage capacity
of my tablet, so it automatically deleted, "yes, of all entries on my
tablet, just my entire calendar."
The truth is,my tablet comes with 32 Gigs of storage capacity, and there is still space for 5511video grams, so how did I exceed storage capacity? I get censored alot by Jpay, and the political content of my tablet is well known by JPay and Martin CI mail room. It's a known fact, I am being retaliatorily targeted due to my prison activism and political belief. They're reading all my writings right now.
This is not the first time, and it won't be the last, and the physical may
PRISONERS PERSONAL PROPERTY
Prisoners personal property keep getting lost because overseers do
not follow CH.33 F.A.C rules in regards to inventorying and safe guarding
prisoners personal property, family photos, legal papers and more. Prisoners
personal property keep coming up missing.
Intentionally long counts, so overseers can sloth their senicure days
away, hanging out, smoking cigarettes at tax payers expense, while prisoners
can't get to their legal deadlines in the law library,or other call outs
During your audit, if you just stepped one foot in side of wing 4 of A
dormitory, you would have been left no choice but to smell and see the
clogged up sink in the mop closet. It's been clogged up for months, the
water is black, stink and a breeding pond for mosquitoes. It gets over
looked every week during inspection. Every senior administrative overseer
has taken cell phone pictures of this sink week after week, with the promise
of getting it fixed to no avail. Only if you'd entered wing 4 of A
dormitory, where your true Accreditation skills are needed. That mop closet
is still clogged, stink, and dirty if you think I'm lying or if you need
proof. Now you see why the state is in permanent fear of prisoners having
any kind of recording devices. These amerikkklan iron curtain issues just
mentioned would all been going viral. This is why the prisoners side of
prison must be kept concealed at all cost. And you will have to Lynch me to
keep me quiet.
