I am no closer to going to general population than i was 26 years ago

It is very obvious here that they have no intention of releasing certain people to general population – they are issuing rules violation reports and finding [certain] people guilty for things that make it obvious that it’s politics. I mentioned in a previous letter that we were issued “rules violations reports.”

I believe that the closer certain people get to being considered for release, these “Rules Violations Reports” will be used to justify retaining those people in SHU.

I am no closer to a general population than i was 26 years ago. And the same thing can be said for a number of prisoners. And because so many of us are being issued “Rules Violations Reports” that have absolutely nothing at all to do with gang activity (except in the warped thinking of the i.g.i. [institutional gang investigators] no one is interested in engaging in any of what the Cdcr proposes – and no one should expect us to subordinate ourselves to things like this.

The Cdcr should be willing to admit that certain people will not be released for whatever reason – and then commit themselves to developing programs for those prisoners.

The state would love to have us – still – fighting this battle years from now – while they continue to subject us to torture – and deprive us the opportunities to re-connect with our families and loved ones, and really, nothing has changed. There are no programs at all in place – and, the policies as to the privileges that were available in SDP [Step Down Program] have been reduced.

People here want to program, they look for light at the end of the tunnel, but only see darkness.

Medical Alert: Zaharibu’s allowed extension cord was taken – he was moved to a single cell

Michael Zaharibu Dorrough was moved last week from his cell which he shared with his comrade and who helped him with the medical issues, to a single cell, because of his CPAP-Machine (to help against sleep apnea). It was a move against his will. 

The Assistant Wardens did not allow him to use his extension cord, which he has had since a year without any danger, and the rules are such that he IS ALLOWED to have it. Still, the AW’s took the cord and moved him to a single cell where they think he can use his CPAP-machine. But the cord is STILL too short! 

They have not done anything to ensure Mr Dorrough can use the CPAP Machine properly. They do not care. In fact, one of the Assistant Wardens is supposed to help Prisoners with Disabilities. She allegedly went out of her way to have the extension cord taken away. Why?
Please help ensure better quality of medical care for Mr Dorrough and hundreds, maybe thousands more prisoners held indefinitely in dark, dirty cells 23/24 hours a day 7 days a week. Please write in protest to: Medical Receiver Kelso, at CPHCSCCUWeb@cdcr.ca.gov:
