Prisoners Report on Conditions in

Formby Unit - 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.

Prisoner Loses Eye Due to Neglect

I was recently brutally attacked causing me to lose my left eye. Medical left me sitting in the medical holding cell for almost five hours with my eye out of the eye socket for much of the time. I can’t get any information from these people here and I’m unable to gather the needed info to file a proper suit. I’ve been harassed so much. Even on this unit I went eight days without my medication causing me to lost 90% of any light (there is no sight, only light) in the eye and still I’m having issues with this medical. I saw Office of Inspector General and never heard anything back from them.
