Oppression in the Mountains of Georgia
I am currently at Hays State Prison in Trion, GA. I for the record am white, am a Muslim by religion, and tired of seeing all these white trash pigz and klansmen that work here on this kkkompound treat all the inmates like modern day slaves.
There is this level style program called Tier II in GA (see Sop 209.08 Tier II/Administrative Segregation) and here at Hays it is beyond the norm of oppression. Unit managers, supervisors, and officers alike threaten and try to antagonize any prisoner they see as weak. There is an area known to all as simply "behind the glass" its supposed to be level 6 security and the wardens have at times said that level 6 status only will last 30 days, but people are kept in there up to 90 days, for no reason at all. The warden has personally told people, myself included, that "you get no legal library behind the glass."
The food service here is supervised by ARAMARK, a major imperialist conglomerate in the food service industry, and per the above SOP all Tier II inmates are to receive the same quality and quantity of food as GP. However we don't receive coffee at breakfast all other state run institutions in the GDC do, our portions are often inadequate and no way possible add up to 2000 calories per day, we only receive lunch Monday-Thursday except on state/federal holidays, meaning on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and any and all holidays we only eat twice, the trays arrive cold more often than not.
When officers are confronted with issues they, in some cases, lie and simply move on. Today, 25 December 2017 I watched a nurse refuse a man his mental health medication, I am unsure of this nurse's name, simply because he wouldn't go to the back of his cell even though he is no "behind the glass." When he asked the C.O. working pill pass why he had to step back the C.O. said "I don't trust you." When the inmate refused to move the nurse said "you have three seconds then you've refused your meds," and ultimately she refused his medication.
There are many other very cruel things I've heard about but until I see the actual use of "the involuntary hunger strike" or an inmate beat to death by staff, I cannot speak on them.
I ask my fellow inmates/convicts no matter your race, religion, gang affiliation, or sexual preference to stand as one at Hays State Prison without using any unwarranted violence so that us on lockdown get what we need. Please y'all come together and fight oppression and racism with me cause I cannot do it alone.
To all my Muslim brothers As-Salam Alaikum and to the Christians God Bless and to the ones I've left out be safe and hold your heads up.
