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.
