Tier Memoir: Wisdom from a Georgia State Prisoner

Draconion would appear to be the perfect word to describe the conditions we, as Tier II (2) program inmates, suffer within the walls of the Georgia State prison facility.  Yet, if one was to apply reason, it may look more like an understatement.  We have been forced physically and mentally to withstand the barbaric nature of our confinement which does nothing outside of dissuading some from fighting against its oppressive grasp.  The toilet buttons have been stripped away from inside the cells and placed without, leaving it up to an officer's discretion whether or not to relieve an inmate's cell of the feces that sits in the toilet and reeks within the atmosphere of the "two man cell".  Medical fails at providing the adequate healthcare services.  Mental health treatment is futile.  This is more than obvious when considering the facilities suicide and sucide attempt rate.  Constantly, all means of "accessing the courts" or law library is being deni

Tier Program grievance: inmates cannot flush their toilets

Travis King Grievance that has yet to be answered and/or processed

On 04/01/2015 while being housed in G-1 cell #19 a locked down dormitory my cellmate and myself was moved to G-2 #22 also a locked down dormitory.  When I entered the cell, I notice that the toilet flushing system had been altered so that the toilet could not be flushed from inside the cell but only from a button on the wall outside the cell.  I asked the Sgt. who moved us Sgt. Kirkland why I was being placed in to such a cell when I had done no wrong.  He explained that all cells in the lock down would be altered the same way and that the dormitory officer will flush our toilet for now on.

It has been held by the courts that "Even in extreme situations denial of 'normal' toilet facilities, the failure to allow the 'prisoner' promptly to dispose of his/her wastes violates the Eighth Amendment".

Tier Program inmate exposes abuses from the inside

To: Brother Seer From: Brother Grip G, Quindarrius Duffre Dearly beloved bretheren, Today is Nov 25 2014 @ G.S.P. Nothing has changed. I write you once again, enlightening you concerning my current living, health, and this corrupt Tier II program that has been instituted. The atrocities and inhumane acts are innumerable. The Tier program started July 2, 2014 @ G.S.P., which is a medium security prison that houses closed security inmates on special management unit (SMU). The Tier II program originally only had 3 phases Now in the middle of the program they have instituted another phase in which another 3 months have been added. Each phase consists of 90 days, in which a 90 day review will be conducted to see if the inmate qualifies to be raised to a higher phase, remain on the same phase, or dropped to a lower phase of the Tier II program. The classification committee then bases their judgement according to every inmate's performance sheet.

I Am My Own Master

Born a sovereign but live as a slave.  Others belief and outlooks of life dictates my Present, giving them the right to Judge my future.  Painfully compromising against the self governism that lies in the soul of my spirit.  As I unconsciously pledge allegiance to the many and various laws of order.  I myself have given consent to my own enslavement so, I myself is the key to my desired freedom.  Liberty is always in arms reach when the mind is controlling the hands.  Think before you act.  Knowledge is power.  Illiteracy is our biggest enemy.

Peace and respect to all

Cooperative Prisoner, belligerently beaten by officer

On any particular day in prison, you would think one would presume himself safe being housed in solitary confinement. On the day of May 24, 2015 at approximately 11:15, the cert officers claimed to be giving a random shakedown. They came to cell 22, where inmate Marko Burton and Frederick Robinson was housed. Officer Thurman the spokes person for the crew, order them to strip one by one. As being used to shakedowns both inmates stripped and were handcuffed as as instructed by officers. While inmate Robinson was being handcuffed, inmate Burton trips over a shoe of his (which is on the floor of the room) and falls off the bed. At that time lent Thruman yells to security to open door. Once door is open lent Thurman runs in, grabs inmate Burton by the arm to lift him off bed, asks “where is it” punches inmate Burton in the groin, then states “Nigga I’ll kill you”.

The Klan has taken off the sheet and put on a uniform and badge: White supremacy in the prison system

On April 27th 2015 GA's Dept of KKKorrections celebrated KKKonfederate Memorial Day.  I and other prisoners were denied showers and a food tray, in order for some card carrying Klansmen to celebrate the KKKonfederacy and its legacy, which by the way only entails the oppression of people of color!

Hunger Strike In Protest of Conditions in Georgia Prisons' Tier Program

A hunger strike has been going on in Georgia State Prison in Reidsville since February 26. Prisoners are protesting inhumane conditions, including beatings and lack of access to sufficient food, sanitation, exercise, and an effective grievance process. Their demand is an end to the state's Tier Program, a 2013 initiative that created three increasingly restrictive levels of “Administrative Segregation” to deal with prisoners who are deemed a significant threat to security.
