Prisoners Report on Conditions in

Mountain View 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.

Tough Talks of a Scared Pig

Well I made it to Mt. View. The offender who assaulted me went on to assault 4 other inmates, and threatened the warden. I guess she had her breaking point. And that makes me look at what I can do different now. Obviously reaching out to my fellow sisters is more important. But watching my surroundings and officers who tend to violate more rules than the offenders. This brings me to my next story. :)

On 16 March 2020 I was due to leave out on medical chain for physical therapy. I’d fought for 7 months to get physical therapy. My lay-in was for 6:30 AM. An officer came at 5:39 AM and told me I needed to get ready because they were about to leave. By 5:55AM I was ready. Then she said, “oh they left you.” The bus hadn’t arrived. Then she said “oh, it’s count time.” Well shift changed and I called the other officer and she said, “you refused your medical chain.” I never went out to sign a refusal? I asked for a grievance and one of the officers stated, “I don’t care, grieve it.” Of course, one of the officers I’d just grieved for vulgar language and refusal of my right to a grievance. This time she refused to call rank. This was before the chain bus left. Why do officers act as if our grievances don’t phase them? I just witnessed the same 2 officers refuse this offender medical attention, the right to speak with rank, the right to shower, and the right to go to chow. Not to add that this offender spoke up on my behalf. Is that a coincidence? I’m walking her through the grievance steps she needs to take.

Dirty tricks frustrate grievances in Texas

I would like to participate in the grievance petition campaign for TDCJ in the state of Texas. I am tired of their dirty tricks, underhanded attempts to frustrate the grievance procedure - and render the "vehicle for review" ineffective.

Please send me several copies of the petition so that I can get on board. I have been locked up 10 yrs and I never had a major case. I was written 2 major cases 1 week apart (both are false) and sent to cell block for 6 months, good time taken & 2 lines taken. I want to raise attention to these tactics. I personally quoted policy to warden Kazmierczak, Major Holmes, and Captain Whitney Bruton on 3 different occasions to let them know this was wrong. All that happened was they got more angry and even our health care provider told them my medication was all legitimate. Thank you for your attention and help with this issue. Please send me up to date info that might help.
