Prisoners Report on Conditions in

LeBlanc Unit - 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 Wheelchair Accomodations in Texas

I am in need of some help with some legal work or someone to tell me what I need to do about being on a unit that doesn't have anything for wheelchairs to be here on this unit. I have a lot of medical problems and can not walk. This unit has no 24 hour medical and there is nothing for a wheelchair to be on this unit. The nurses on this unit try to be a PA or MD when they are just a nurse and that is it. I have filed grievance after grievance and nothing has gone good about anything on this problem I am having on this unit. Is there anything you could help me on this problem please?

LeBlanc Texas Disregards Grievance System

Changes to law library content has made the acquisition and perusal of the Texas Offender Grievance Manual nearly, if not totally, impossible in spite of board and administrative directives requiring them to be in the law library for use in researching grievance rules, stipulations, and instructive information.

I have had two grievances which have been rejected as redundant with the added statement that only one grievance per disciplinary is allowed. I ask that you refer me to legal counsel, yours or another's, who could pursue this blatant disregard of the grievance system and my right to use it as well as the denial of my due process rights under both the Texas and U.S. Constitutions. I also need to be able to send legal mail to prevent it and other information it may contain from being gleaned for information I want to keep private.

In addition, I would like your Texas Pack sent to me with updates to all available legal actions currently being pursued by other entities and any case numbers to which I may refer to for further information.
