Lowell Correctional Institution - Florida

www.prisoncensorship.info is a media institution run by the Maoist Internationalist Ministry of Prisons. Here we collect and publicize reports of conditions behind the bars in U.$. prisons. Information about these incidents rarely makes it out of the prison, and when it does it is extremely rare that the reports are taken seriously and published. This historical record is important for documenting patterns of abuse, and also for informing people on the streets about what goes on behind the bars.

We hope this information will inspire people to take action and join the fight against the criminal injustice system. While we may not be able to immediately impact this particular instance of abuse, we can work to fundamentally change the system that permits and perpetuates it. The criminal injustice system is intimately tied up with imperialism, and serves as a tool of social control on the homeland, particularly targeting oppressed nations.

Solitary Confinement And Fabricated Charges Against Florida Wimmin

I was released from confinement on 7 January and sent to the main unit, only to have a false DR arranged for me on January 15. I have now missed 4 visits planned with family to sit in a locked room. On January 15 I was on my bed at 7:42 AM count when the sergeant accused me of using the F word in dialogue she fabricated to have an excuse to haul me off to confinement. On January 22 I was given 30 days with credit for only 3 of 8 days. I had been locked in a room for this lie. I just spent 5 weeks locked in a room for the last false DR and only out 8 days.

I got copies of your petition and sent them out to federal/state courts, local legislators, member of congress, Ocala Star Banner and Miami Herald newspapers. I put out an order to show cause for a preliminary injunction and temporary restraining order to the federal court to ask the Florida Department of COrrections(FDOC) to stop locking me in a room at the same 3 prisons to torture me, breaking the law to falsify state documents to justify the retaliation. I was assigned an attorney by the federal appellate court last month for my FDOC case with my case classed for oral arguments which is only granted in 20% of cases. I hope to hear from her soon.

I cannot seem to get any help from the judicial/executive/legislative branches of government. My mother has contacted the House of Representatives member to try to get help. I have written the governor, FDOC secretary, and DOJ IG recently. Another inmate gave me a stack of articles on FDOC problems, criminal justice reform and Lowell specifically to copy as supporting documents for my outgoing packages. I should have 10 more copies to get out soon to different addresses.

This is now 31 trips to confinement since 2010, 150 disciplinary reports, years of lost gain time and almost half my time locked in a room. I have retired all I write to your website www.prisoncensorship.info so they can review the postings of Florida prisoners.

The nasty sergeant stored my medication, deodorant and most of what I was allowed to have to deprive me of basic necessities. I was not fed dinner on January 23 deliberately and they “lost” my laundry bag.

…A Lt here at LCI was arrested last year for child sexual abuse. I was able to read all the articles about this. He was promoted year after year even after serious allegations were made against him for sexual misconduct and other crimes. The FDOC secretary is trying to claim they need more money and staff. Last month I was given 5 false DRs while locked in a room doing nothing wrong. The personal vendetta has gone on for years. When I was here before in 2018 the staff threw my food on the floor and charged me with battery pretending I threw the tray I never touched. They ambushed me with chemical weapons warfare while I was locked in a room and helpless. This practice seems to have been stopped. I have not seen this done since 2018.

Is there anyone I can get to help me forward out emails to the legislators and U.S. Congress. I was able to get the request form to appear before the Florida Senate that I have tried to get since 2018 from a library. Most of the management here have been persecuting me since 2012, only to get promoted. We are getting a lot of publicity. Lowell made national news in 2019 for a silent protest held after a prisoner was paralyzed after an altercation with 4 male employees. She is 51 and now a quadriplegic. The Lt who was arrested for child sexual abuse was one of the ones involved. Please let me know how I can help MIM and send me another blank petition for Florida so I can update the information on this form.
