FFUP solitary report 9 17 Rough Draft Working

IN PROGRESS:
from 2014 article by FRONTLINE entitled-"does solitary make you crazy?"
FFUP report on WI DOC overuse and abuse of solitary


A)latest 
1) Suicide at CCI on Sunday, September 10, 2017 -reported by Norman Green ( UHURU) 228971. We are trying to find out more – only have name CANTRELL.We have also asked for names of all inmates at risk in that seg unit so we can help support them.

    1)PSYCH INCINERATOR- another suicide: https://ffupstuff.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/uhuru-cci-suicide-alert-alone-typed.pdf
     2) Letter to FFUP: https://ffupstuff.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/from-uhuru-letter-to-ffup-on-suicide.pdf

 see original here: https://ffupstuff.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/1-a-ngreen-9-11-17-alert.pdf e-9-11-17.pdf
and his letter to me here: https://ffupstuff.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/1-a-ngreen-9-11-17-alert.pdf

This came with call to action- conditions are worse than ever and there will be more suicides. FFUP is trying to gather allies for an effective action. (Thinking possibly a campaign demanding the building of a treatment center like that at TCI-they did have it in the budget at one time. )

2)Widespread PTSD suspected among exprisoners who spent long time in seg.
  The courts are recognizing the profoundly negative effect solitary has on the mentally ill. We have found in getting to know  many ex-prisoners and reincarcerated prisoners who have spent long periods in solitary, that symptoms similar to PTSD are widespread, making adjustment to life outside prison difficult and requiring treatment. Informal support groups of ex-prisoners who have experienced long term solitary confinement are being discussed, for healthy ways to vent are vital to healing. Here is part of letter from on inmate who was out of prison for awhile:

John Tiggs, 50 , has PTSD from his time in solitary , will be released for second try 7 18
Akinbo JS Hashim-Tiggs 250033, WCI on PTSD 9 12 17:"One of the things I discovered was that the 7 or 8 years I resided in the Boscobel Prison there in Boscobel, damaged me. There would be nights when I was asleep and would hear the sound of keys dangling and leap wide- awake, afraid of an impending cell search and assault from prisoner guards.
     post traumatic Stress disorder was only a smaller part of the overall effect : I had to re-teach myself how to communicate through simple forms of courtesies like expressing" thankyou", "your welcome" and "please" .I had spent so many months behind the box-car style door that yelling became the norm for me and anger was the primary emotion.
     What I learned that really really helped was spending time with others who'd gone through a similar experience, discussing the experiences( venting) and good ol' fashioned  mindfulness  meditation. I attest that mindfulness meditation saved my sanity.It allowed me to separate myself for that moment in time I needed for perspective to move in.
But what works for one might not work for another.
       I am still very much affected by the time I spent in solitary confinement; when threatened by it, I feel and inordinate level of fear and I 'n not sure I will ever make it out again were I to return to segregation. "

4) Latest  Hunger strike reports, Affidavits/ deterioration solitary causes
"I’m writing to tell you there is four people on hunger strike. Their names are David Claudio 289694, Timothy Sidney 480019, Jack Williams 271433 and Alex Javier Lopez-Smith 559448.
We’re protesting how the C/o officers are treating us. And I’m protesting the psychologist not sending me back  to WRC for prerelease and trauma group before I go home june 10, 2018. Doctor N Stewart playing games even though the psychologist and social worker in WRC say I can benefit from these groups before I’m released. Can you please check into this. And they put me in segregation for supposedly disobeying orders, disrespect, for something I didn’t do."

 10-12 -17 phone call from prisoner in WCI  says affidavits from more hunger strikers coming.


     
5)Eloquent description of seg and plea

Gerald Easterling #564618 WCI
From Within and beyond this 8” by 14” square  foot steel deprivation cell that is designed for my mental and physical and social dehumanization, I bring to you this letter  of concern regarding the adverse effects of long term segregation sensory deprivation<After spending 3 years in intensive solitary confinement ,deprived of human contact, I had become super-sensitive to the 5 basic human senses. This deliberate and intentional stripping of the ell down to a isolation cell, then the stripping of the individual down to the basic necessities and even down to the personal effects- then locked within this cell 24 hours a day with barely the bare essentials and where even this wall-mounted stainless steel mirror is the segregation cell is removed from the walls so that even the sight of one’s own image is denied. And no matter how strong a person is , sensory deprivation is depravity at its worst. All 5 basic human sense-sight, sound, smell, touch,  and taste-are severely suppressed-when one is slowly but surely and very subtly stripped of all common sentiments of humanity. So once again, I am force d to adapt to a Fucker of situation. Under these adverse conditions of confinement one tends to crave a change of scenery and location, and atmosphere, and environment just so s/he can see new sight instead of the same old everyday mind-deadening routine and faceless faces...
After spending over three years in the intensive solitary confinement, I was transferred back to general population .I have not received, encouraged nor welcomed any outside contact by way of visits and emotional and spiritual and financial support from family members, loved ones or friends in the past 6 years. The most pain is knowing, the feeling of helplessness. The dark corner doesn’t lend much comfort-often the walls are closing in. It’s still dark and cloudy in the midst of the hell the call “the kingdom, of darkness” but with a little love and support, you can supply the sunshine I need to get me through this stormy weather when all else fails. Bring your light to my solitude heart and mind and soul. What you have for me will make my darkness all-light, I understand you help people in prison, can you please help me maintain myself and existence with emotional and spiritual and financial support. Can you please provide encouragement and help me overcome the challenges faced during incarceration and reintegration. Being ungrateful is not a character of mines, nor do I require a lot, I just ask that you provide me enough ,enough of what you honestly have to offer genuinely from a place where your feeling and heart may reside

B.  ONGOING abuse by all prisons
 1) Biggest one is that there is little or no treatment> A few classes that work ( name) are almost impossible to get into
     a)  testaments on self harm
        B) Therapist conduct very short interviews at cell door where everyone can hear- nothing      important can get done in these circumstances
        C) Self harm and behaviors caused by mental illness continue to get severe retaliation and CRs- and usually elongated solitary
2 ) . Overcrowding and understaffing have driven the prison to use solitary as a population control tool.
a)Whole prisons have frequent lockdowns because of lack of staff and overcrowding./\
b)Prisoners are given solitary time for the least infraction and are often segued into AC once that is done.
c)some general population inmates claim they live like they were in solitary as often they cannot come out of their unless they have program or job- and there are few of these.
from letter by Bobby Byers WSPF 4 17
d) Guards routinely are forced to do double shifts, sometimes three and often there are not enough staff to adequately keep order- leaving the weaker inmates vulnerable.
e)The rules for duration of solitary are not followed myriad ways this is done to hide the fact that use of solitary is increasing , not decreasing- see Bbelow
f) Inmates are segued from Disciplinary seg to AC without a blink and noone beats an AC hearing, I am told.  Also once the assigned time is served, the prison merely has to ask Madison for an elongation
https://ffupstuff.files.wordpress.com/2016/08/j-emerson-longer-seg-6-20-16.pdf

3) Another.Death/ suicides/Physical Abuse/ guards inciting inmates to snap out
a) Francisco Flores-Rocha: many reports: Patrick Peterson/mther of GBCI prisoner/
                 Reports that 8 cans of gas were thrown in his room. PP wrote me about it, his mail was intercepted before I get it and he was given CR for lying about staff, then they sent the letter to me . I alerted allies and it stuck there for fear of retaliation on inmate witnesses. Finally mother of a gbci inmates said all on floor knew about it /inmates in surrounding cells were given gas masks the air was so foul.

https://ffupstuff.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/guards-inciting-by-spreading-rumors.pdf
b) Biggest one is that the most abusive guard, Joseph Beahm , was put in charge of seg at WCI- got one letter, recently, however, stating he has not been seen for awhile. Am told he is at Guard tower now. Equally abusive is Monguey is still doing his abuse unheeded
                recent history:   The abuse was well documented in a series in 2014 by the center for Investigative Journalism ( CInvJ) CRUEL AND UNUSUAL?.after the articles the DOJ strted a preliminary investigation and a lawfirm agreed to look inot doing a class action. Then the DOC instituted a brief period of reform with new guidelines. The guards wore cameras and rotation was establish, After a couple months the DOJ and lawfirm left, job accomplished and media lauded changes. all reverted back - rules not followed and main abusing guard, Joseph Beahm became head of seg., All advocacy become much harder and inmates lost hope.

c)Incitement by guards through rumours.  At first I did not believe the letters about guards spreading rumour- basic conspiracy but now there are enough reports that I think it I a widespread practice. Three cases here:
Cesar De Leon, Luis Ramirez, Daniel Chipman

2) Pattern of prisons denying transfer to Treatment center (WRC).. Two I have started to follow up on:
a) Justin Burns 560086,WCI-was refused transfer to WCI because of "dirty UA"(pot).he explains he "self medicated" because of no treatment
b)Robert Ward WSPF  was denied transfer to treatment denied because on AC.
Both men have been in seg for long period, are mentally ill and are soon to be released. They both fear they will “snap out “ easily once released if they do not have treatment. On inquiry, deputy warden at WRC said they have no blanket policy for admittance- everyone gets the sane screening. Neither being on AC or having a dirty UA disqualifies them. I did an open records request for wspf asking for any rules that disqualifies an inmate if he is on AC- there are none. Wrote Madison and Warden of WSPF inquiring. More cases coming in from throughout system with similar complaints- will gather.
DETAILS on the two cases above:
      1WCI Justin Burns-was refused transfer to WCI because of "dirty UA"(pot).he explains he "self medicated" because of no treatment: from letter 7 27 17 :I suffer from Mental illness specifically OCD, Anxiety and depression. I was referred to WRC as a High Priority for these symptoms I just told you about. My referral was accepted in 90 minutes; the quickest acceptance the psych doctor has ever seen! On the day I packed to leave to go to WRC I was found with some Marijuana on me; I had self medicated a few days before because I just couldn’t take the depressions and anxiety of everyday life with my WCLG. So I was given 360 days in seg due to my Conduct report. My visits were also taken from me due to my ticket but my visits had absolutely nothing to do with my conduct report.  There are numerous inmates here who lost their visits also due to having dirty UAs. He also sent WRC referral notice and requests to PSU for treatment See:
request for treatment : https://ffupstuff.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/justin-burns-psu-request-7-17.pdf
referral from WRC: https://ffupstuff.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/j-burns-wrc-referral-6-17.pdf

          2 Robert Ward WSPF  is one of the inmates who had his diagnosis changed from severe MH2 to not severe MH1 and he was transferred to WSPF for treatment and has been on AC. He has extreme phobias now of being around people and stimulation and will be released in 2018.  He was denied transfer to treatment denied because on AC. He is still on AC because of policy of “Warning” (explained in Number---)Without this policy he would be out of AC. Because the THe high risk offender program HROP lasts a year, by the time they deem hi eligible for treatment . he will be out. He also has done the program already, which is a writing and takes a short time to do. ( there is no training or treatment in the program- it is just time)  https://ffupstuff.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/rward-wrc-request-denial7-23-17.pdf 

           More cases of transfer denial /looking in to:
         Alex javier Lopez-Smith 559448, WCI  22 Years old/Birth year 1995/out date 6 10 2018/ went on hunger strike at WCI because psychologist refused to send him to WRC for prerelease and trauma group before going home."Doctor N Stewart playing games even though the psychologist and social worker in WRC say I can benefit from these groups before I’m released. Can you please check into this. And they put me in segregation for supposedly disobeying orders, disrespect, for something I didn’t do." am gathering more info and documents
          William Counts 211570 WCI denied programming/exhausted remedies/wants to be included in suit. Ask for affidavit
         Joshua Scolman 422508: trying for two years to be transferred out of WCI where is says he is constantly retaliated against. Long story of abuse at WCI . we started working with him during the hunger strike 2016. See #

B)Rules and statutes not followed. Despite rules and reports that state that use of solitary is on decline, the reports we receive is that the numbers are increasing dramatically. Solitary is used as the main tool in dealing with overcrowding and understaffing.

        1)Severely mentally ill prisoners put into solitary by changing diagnoses.  Ongoing pattern of changing diagnoses from severe(MH1) to not sever e (MH2)and then taking away meds. At CCI the report is that Psychologist Gamboro is pressuring new psychiatrists to change diagnoses and are told the inmates are “Malingering”
                a. Doctor Boivin DOC psychologist quit the DOC because of inability to treat effectively and he reported in Center for Investigative Journalism (CINVJ) article that he came back for vacation to find that 8 of his patients had had their diagnoses changed from serious to non serious.
               b) In some cases, when the diagnosis is changed,  Meds have been cut off without tapering , producing a serious mental health crisis in the individual
Urgent case: Raynell Morgan( Kamau) CCI. He was in solitary at WSPF for 15plus years and deteriorated dramatically- obsessive compulsive and extremely tortured- was getting slightly better with the meds when they were cut off. He cannot eat because he fears the food is poisoned, he has voices and clicks etc in his head all the time, dreams are full of deceased people he knew. All advocacy did not get him his meds back. Finally, with visit from family and letters from allies he has decided to accept his symptoms and get into study of language which is his forte to keep his mind off his symptoms.
               c) Robert Ward had diagnosis changed from MH2 (serious) to Mh1 ( no serious) and was transferred to WSPF from CCI . He and others reported there were 10 such transfers. The going thought is that the diagnosis changes was BECAUSE they then could be put into solitary and AC and  the DOC could report they are not putting severely mentally ill into long term solitary.
                d) latest: Shane Gressel 305973 –will send List of inmates who had MH codes dropped from Severe MH1 to MH2/Weekly meetings through door with therapist violates HIPPA rights/Guards Goat inmates into self harm

      2) Inmates are segued from Disciplinary seg to AC without a blink and noone beats an AC hearing, I am told.

        3)Also once the assigned time is served, the prison merely has to ask Madison for an elongation
https://ffupstuff.files.wordpress.com/2016/08/j-emerson-longer-seg-6-20-16.pdf
           
       3 )Guidelines published in June 2016 were not followed except by GBCI and Prisoner at least in WCI never heard of them
    Guidelines: https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/2190222-dai-303-00-04-disciplinary-guidelines-06-01-15.html

      4) AC new rule not followed 


RULES 308.00.00 and 303 .00.02.not followed:
WAUPUN not following new Procedures for Administrative Confinement (DAI 308.00.01)
The WI DOC passed a new DAI policy for administrative Confinement (DAI 308.00.01). Waupun officials are refusing to implement it. It requires that each prison establish a step level system  like the one at CCI, you know AC1, 2, and 3.Each step is 6 months.  It was passed in March. They are refusing to implement it because they Say” “It puts security staff at risk.”
 From Cesar De Leon written 5 10 17:

Here are parts they are not implementing- full 308 here: 
in pdf form ( reduced to 4 in one as received)       / and here transcribed to word: 

IV Programming and Level System
A Each facility shall have a structured and progressive system that allows inmates to progress through privilege levels based on program participation, behavior and appropriate interactions with staff. Where space and resources allow, the program shall include opportunities for 
recreation and leisure time activities and out-of-cell time with other inmates (with or without restraints), consistent with level of risk.

B. At the time of AC placement, inmates shall be informed the behaviors and actions required to successfully transition to a less restrictive setting.
C. Property and privileges of AC shall be consistent with the highest level allowed in the RH unit where they are housed.
D. Additional property, privileges and programming may be initiated to assist in transition planning and preparation for release from the status.

 V Mentally ill inmates 
For inmates placed AC with MH-2A, MH-213 or ID codes:
A. Facility staff shall complete a Behavior Management Plan as defined in DAI Policy 500.70.30 within 10 days of AC placement.
B. PSU staff shall meet with the inmate at least once per week and document contacts on DOC-3473.
C. If the inmate is not already on a mental health treatment unit, staff shall regularly review options for placement on such unit
D. Each facility shall review their capabilities for additional out of cell activities for SMI inmates.
B. Out of cell time for SMI —Whew Resources Allow
1. Five hours out of cell time for unstructured recreational/leisure activities per Wisconsin Administrative Code.
2. Five hours out of cell for structured activity.

MORE from Cesar Deleon 7 20 17
Can warden just ignore administrative rules or overrule them with his/her own policies??
The only policy that permits the warden to suspend administrative rules the I know of is DOC 306.02 sub(1). It reads:
If an emergency occurs that prevents the normal functioning of the institution, the warden may suspend the administrative rules of the Department or parts of them, EXCEPT 306.07 to 306.09 until the emergency is ended and order is restored to the institution.
I think that only applies in case of riots. Anyway, whatever you are looking for in cases of suspension of rules in i the administrative code 306. I don’t think that they can use any of these codes to justify not implementing those DAI 308.00.01 and 303.00.02 codes. They’re just being defiant toward their own administrators in central office. They did the same thing when the new DAI 303.00.04 was issued, remember?(suggests going to Wisconsin center for investigative Journalism )

Nothing in those two policies is being implemented at WCI, Green Bay and DCI. Boscobel and Portage always had a step level system for A.C. but in no prison that know of are they implementing the parts about giving consideration to MH@ inmates. All S.C.hearing are still being operated under the old 308 policy. And NOONE that is MH2 and gets more than 60 days in seg are getting a behavior management plan. And at Waupun inmates in seg get less than the minimum property standards. In order to even get some shampoo, grease , personal toothpaste etc, you have to be on step three or AC. The new policy also permits a cup, personal clippers, hair brush, lotion, conditioner, and so forth. None of this is allowed in Waupun seg.

 303 .00.02 Minimum allowable property in solitary:
There’s another policy that they are refusing to implement. IT’s DAI 303.00.02.That deals with Behavior Management plans for inmates with mental Illness(es) that get more than 60 days in seg and AC. It also outlines the “standard minimums’ allowed property for seg. In Waupun ‘s seg we get even less that the minimum standard and officials plan to keep it that way unless we do something about it.

Matthew Labrec 531236 CCI DOC not following DAI policy -90 plus people packed into RH2-30 people on the floor and no pair with care

     5) DOC 301.04 rules not followed

     6) WSPF AND "Warning system"- new policy AT WSPF whereby a guard can issue a 'warning" for  rule infraction and then put the inmate back to start of HROP "High risk offender program" without any due process. For a prisoner to get out of AC at WSPF he must finish the year long HROP program.  Robert Ward was near finished with the program when he was accused of yelling . He was put back to beginning with no due process. he was not the one who yelled> ironically he is soon to be released and NEEDS treatment at WSPF badly and they tell him no because he is on AC. Further irony, there is a short paper program for HROP and Robert has done it- there is nothing but time here( see 2)

     7) OSCI is an example of a rogue prison making its own rules at whim. There were some overdose deaths and prison went on long lock down- now is semi back to normal  but has draconian and what inmates feel are totally ineffective rules. letters in insert.(list)Malcolm Campbell; Reo Covington, Matthew Stechauner Carlos McDaniel, Les Puerner
      8)  FLCI_ 16-17 inmates have been PRC’d to maximum prisons 
               
Many medium prisoners PRC’d to Maximum?
Release/Ben Martinez 168495 FLCI 7 13 17 16-17 inmates PRC’s to max- all given 240 ( type)
Seg #/Joseph C Cooks 436664 WCI/was in GBCI for 13 years, FLCI for 2 years, now back to max at WCI
Misses sun, view of sky, breathing fresh air. No cliques in the hole-all oppressed / Many PRC’s to max from mediums and minimums.

  C.  ONGOING abuse by all prisons
 1) Biggest one is that there is little or no treatment> A few classes that work ( name) are almost impossible to get into
2) Therapist conduct very short interviews at cell door where everyone can hear- nothing important can get done in these circumstances
3) Self harm and behaviors caused by mental illness continue to get severe retaliation and CRs- and usually elongated solitary
3) . Overcrowding and understaffing have driven the prison to use solitary as a population control tool.

4) Guards routinely are forced to do double shifts, sometimes three and often there are not enough staff to adequately keep order- leaving the weaker inmates vulnerable.
5) solitary is the solution the prison uses for all ills and the smallest infraction gets solitary time – the guidelines published in June of 2016 are not followed
6) The rules for duration of solitary are not followed- Inmates are segued from Disciplinary seg to AC without a blink and noone beats an AC hearing, I am told.  Also once the assigned time is served, the prison merely has to ask Madison for an elongation

https://ffupstuff.files.wordpress.com/2016/08/r-blue-letter-81-16.pdf-very good letter on guard abuse and inmate blame

D.Conditions of confinement
1)Meals skipped for deaf and those on heavy drugs: Bell rings for Meals and you have to be at your door to get fed- those who are mentally ill and drugged or deaf miss meals
1) constant hunger by all inmates- portions constantly reduces- result is inmate have no energy and sleep a lot-
2) no sunlight/ many prisons have no windows/outside very rare
3)filthy cells, feces spread and not cleaned up
4)old beat up blankets and clothes, mattresses hopeless

From a letter by Jose Gonzalez to Warden WCI and all concerned

"Upon entering seg you are placed in a dirty strip cage and made to strip naked to be optically searched, then you are given seg clothes. These 

clothes are typically worn out and have holes in them and a really worn out pair of orange shoes made of rubber. Then you are handcuffed with  cuffs that are not cleaned between uses, if at all, and escorted to A or B range and placed in a cell that has probably never been scrubbed. I personally have scrubbed the walls of all 9 seg cells I have ever been in and each time I have scrubbed blood, spit, food, sweat, dirt, semen, urine and fecal matter from the walls. The mattresses are so worn that it feels like you are sleeping on cement. ….."


5) cold , hot no relief
6) Supplies dismal_ soap to last three days not enough for one washup- no canteen
this is supposed to last for 3 days this is approximately 2" long and 1". It is not enough for one hand washing. There are many different levels of seg which I have never gotten straight , but most inmates in solitary have no access to canteen and most FFUP works with are indigent. Deodorant and soap NEED to be on venders (Marcus and Union supply). that woudl help many inmates tolerate their "pysche incinerators better as family could help. 


F. Hunger strike reports, Affidavits/ deterioration solitary causes
I’m writing to tell you there is four people on hunger strike. Their names are David Claudio 289694, Timothy Sidney 480019, Jack Williams 271433 and Alex Javier Lopez-Smith 559448.
We’re protesting how the C/o officers are treating us. And I’m protesting the psychologist not sending me back  to WRC for prerelease and trauma group before I go home june 10, 2018. Doctor N Stewart playing games even though the psychologist and social worker in WRC say I can benefit from these groups before I’m released. Can you please check into this. And they put me in segregation for supposedly disobeying orders, disrespect, for something I didn’t do.

General good descriptions of life in the WIS DOC: people need to be aware of the disregard to human life the Wisconsin DOC has."
"Staff talk down on us all the time. And if someone reacts, that person gets treated worse. People’s mental health is a joke to them. There are staff that do not agree with the mistreatment, but they can not speak out because that will be their job. Staff do not go against staff. New staff are training new staff. Very dangerous. It’s like you lose your right to be a man, when you come to prison. But what happens to a caged dog that always gets messed with and antagonized? Most of the time they become very mean, and when they are released, they snap and most of the time you have to lay them down. Then they blame it on  the dog. How sick and wrong is that? Every man has a breaking point. And this is mine. It’s time to let this torture be let out. Loud and Proud. “We are Men, and We Deserve to be treated as one. “ I came to prison because I did something wrong. I want to become better, but the system is designed to have you have a rough time and eventually come back. Every person that comes through these doors means money to them. But if you knew that your money was going to building killers and “crazy people” would you let that keep happening? I hope not. All it takes is one bad judgment call to end up exactly where I am right now. We are human and not perfect. I have seen people “lose it.” Eat their own bowl movements, cut them selves, wipe blood and other bodily fluids all over themselves. I have seen staff walk away from people who ask for help and they laugh while the inmate hurts himself. One person that I really respected told a CO that his chest hurt, the CO said drink some water and lay down. The man died that night. The man was no older than 50 years old. That was the last straw for me. Things need to change. People need to be aware of the disregard to human life the Wisconsin DOC has."
