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

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".
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.
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

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”.
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!
Tout le monde
Se croit lucide
Mais personne n'est lucide
Tout le monde se croit objectif
Mais personne n'est objectif
N'est jamais lucide
N'est jamais objective
Et nous sommes tous et toutes
Cela ne fait aucun doute
Dans une ignorance profonde
De tout ce qui régit le monde
Parfois surgit une idée féconde
Et de cette infime parcelle de réalité
Que seule nous pouvons appréhender
C'est cela que nous appelons lucidité ou objectivité
Chacun, chacune, voyant midi à sa porte
Mais le mot porte n'est jamais la porte !
Mais il y a nonobstant des réalités
Que tout le monde peut constater
Comme la viande irradiée
Comme la viande clonée
Comme le poisson transgénique
De toute une bouffe biotechnologique
C'était bien la peine
La domestication du feu en Afrique
Il y a au moins, un million d'années
C'était bien la peine
La domestication du feu, en Europe
Gutsy novel confronts America’s problem of proper collection of society’s debts.
ATLANTA, Georgia. October 22, 2014 (eReleases)—Billed as a Trojan horse for change, this penetrating manuscript aims to defend the innocent, while boldly flipping off the status-quo. A wise man once said, you either accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them. This is the foremost objective of Coming of the Hour, the searing novel by debut author, Harrison Charles; and it succeeds mightily.
