Prisoners Report on Conditions in

Federal Correctional Institution Waseca - Federal

Got a keyboard? Help type articles, letters and study group discussions from prisoners. help out 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.

Drugs, Denied Grievances and Crumbling Services in Federal BOP Women's Prison

As of right now here at Federal Correctional Institution Waseca, we are flooded with Suboxone, so those articles in ULK 77 really hit home. It is the K2 more that keeps this compound going. We do have 1% of our population on the “MAT” program, where a few of the females here go and get their monthly fix of Suboxone and continue their stint, nodding off at random places.

Another major issue here is that our grievance process here is a joke. Everything gets denied and in D-Unit, the programming unit, the ladies have constantly got cursed at when requesting the first step or any of our administrative remedies.

I have spent over 10 years in Texas prisons (TDCJ). The way the BOP is falling apart, except that Texas doesn’t pay their prisoners, it would probably be better down there than here. We have no mental health services, women report suicide ideations and nothing gets done, stating a shortage of staff. The Unicor sweatshop is mandating overtime for 7AM-8PM and most Saturdays.
