Bexar County Jail - Texas

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.

No Recourse to Fight Abuse at Bexar Jail

I am currently housed in the Bexar County Adult Detention Center. We have had enough of the senselessness & oppression that we have been subjected to, & remain under.

I have somehow been dubbed by my peers to be the leader of this movement that is being birthed here which is known as the "Dungeon" or the "Ghetto." I have been helping people with lawsuits & educating them on legal terminology. Mind you, we are being punished for being ex-gang members. They do not allow us to go to church, they do not allow us to go to the law library or to speak with a certified paralegal, or to go to anger management, parenting classes, educational courses, absolutely nothing. Not only that, but they have somehow successfully monopolized the food industry in here. This has been going on for years. The same company who provides us with our 3 meals a day also runs the commissary, so it's no wonder that our meals are dramatically under the 2,000 calorie mark. They feed us scanty rations making commissary a MUST if you don't want to pass out from hunger or develop hunger pains. They sell a single pack of Ramen Noodles for 1,250% over market value. $1.00 each, when at stores you get 1 soup for 8 cents. That's too much. They even sell individual items with no bar-code for over 1,000% market value. We are starving.

The medical treatment is a bust. My cellmate almost developed sepsis when he got a staph infection & they gave him stool softener & laxatives as treatment. They charge people for chronic care, & they charge us financial restitution for things without the due process of law. Say you move into a cell & something is damaged, there's nothing you can do about it. If they catch you, you get written up & classification comes to see you where you will be found guilty & charged for the damaged item; hundreds of dollars! Notice there's no mention of being fingerprinted, or read any rights, or any of that. Not just that but the local law enforcement agencies have been paying criminals (as they always do) to create this cycle of insanity. Out on the grimy streets of San Antonio, people are getting "gangstalked," murdered, set up, driven to the brink of insanity...Etc. Etc. It's all this federal gangstalking. Notice that I come from San Antonio. a military city, so you know the oppression is hard over here.

I'm sitting here on a murder charge—they set me up because I refused to become a fed. They made 5 different propositions to me out here & I refused. Twice I was met nearby after refusing those propositions, by hit men. My face was plastered all over every major news station in San Antonio at the busiest time of media watching where they dubbed me as guilty & showed a video of some guy who doesn't even look or move like me. All my friends and family know I didn't do it. I need help. And a lot of it.

Thank you so much for what you guys do. I really appreciate it.
