EMERGENCY ALERT: ANOTHER VIOLENT DEATH BEING REPORTED BY U.V. AT ELMORE CF


Unfortunately, we are receiving word of yet another stabbing death at Elmore CF. Elmore has already had one stabbing death this month and another in the complex at Staton. As these deaths continue to pile up, ADOC officials focus their attention on dollars over life.

As the death toll continues to rise, there have been no fundamental changes to the culture of ADOC. Efforts to save lives must be expedited because, in the eyes of the ADOC, bodies are replaceable.

 

Another Death in ADOC: No Statement from ADOC Spokesperson 

We are receiving word of a stabbing death at Staton CF. According to the report, the deceased had been stabbed twice in a two week period.

“Inmate stabbed to death at Staton. Second time same inmate been stabbed in less than 2 weeks.”

The ADOC has stopped reporting on violence incidents as they try to extort $800 million from taxpayers for new prisons. Not a single one of the “human rights” orgs have ever filed a wrongful death action against the ADOC for damages. All they want is attorneys fees.

We will not allow these deaths to be swept under the rug.

HOW ABUSE OF THE INCARCERATED IS JUSTIFIED 

​Prisoner Hatred: The Psychology of Justified Torture in America        2/11/17

 
Millions of Americans are currently being held in modern day concentration camps on American soil. We call them “prisons”. Prisons are being ran “for profit” and have become torture chambers and “legalized” slave labor camps. Similar to Germany during the Nazi regime, Americans have been “trained” through media sources to look the other way, continue in complacency, mind our own business, and remain apathetic. We have naively believed whatever they, the prisoners, receive, they deserve. 
In an ego driven society, where personal gain and self preservation is cherished above consideration of our neighbors, whether we know them or not, projection, scapegoating, and superiority are the “ego defenses” used most often when directing hatred toward prisoners. It is how we justify the torture of millions of people, whether they are guilty or innocent. We do not stop to consider the aspects of “guilt versus innocence”, “crime”, or “authority”. 
In order to justify the torture of millions of people, held in these modern day concentration camps, called prisons, we project onto them everything we hate about ourselves (projection). Whatever quality of ourselves that we “secretly” hate, we see it perfectly in prisoners. Therefore, we believe, “whatever they receive, they deserve”. 
Even as we project our self hatred onto a group of people we deem as worthy of hatred, we say to ourselves, they deserve to die, or be tortured, or suffer, or be locked in a cage for the rest of their lives, they are less than human (scapegoating). We become sadistic abusers. 
And after all, we are the “superior” group (superiority). We believe we deserve all good things and they don’t because they are less than human, less than deserving, less than worthy of love….etc. 
Because we blindly trust “authority” and are taught to “worship” “authority”, we do not consider if the prisoner is innocent or guilty by doing our own research of the “crime”. We really do not care; our ego needs someone to hate and blame. And, we do not consider if a “crime” was even committed at all, as in “conspiracy” charges. We continue to project, blame, and criticize. We do not consider what the “crime” is…again, we need somewhere to place our self hatred. 
We need someone or some group to be our “slave” so that we can keep up our superiority ideals. We need someone or some group to oppress so that we can feel good about our intelligence, our college degrees, our material  possessions. We need someone or some group to place our “hatred” so that we can continue our denial systems, our lack of accountability, our own slave mentality.

Alabama House Speaker unsure if Governor’s prison overhaul plan will pass | WHNT.com

http://whnt.com/2017/02/06/alabama-house-speaker-unsure-if-governors-prison-overhaul-plan-will-pass/

  The Governor is playing politics with the location of the proposed new prison sites. Closing down 17 prisons will affect the economy of alot of communities in Alabama. Thus, to disclose a location would influence the vote of many legislatures. 

ADOC and US DOJ are in on investigation together 

​  https://www.bna.com/sessions-confirmation-pit-n73014450289/

 “Faced with unfavorable political decisions necessary to adequately fund its prison system—such as raising taxes or letting out low-level offenders early—Alabama instead backed civil actions and a U.S. Department of Justice investigation that raised questions about the state of its prisons, Arthur Rizer, justice policy director at libertarian think tank the R Street Institute and a former assistant U.S. attorney, told Bloomberg BNA on Jan. 19.

State officials were hoping that the results of the investigation would allow them to blame former President Barack Obama’s already unpopular administration for any unpopular actions, Rizer said.”

THE FLEECING OF THE PRISON POPULATION

​Repost by Don Shula in Prison Reform Movement: 
This is a post from Debra Hernandez. What she is saying is so important and true. 
SILENCE AND INACTION IN THE FACE OF ALL THIS INJUSTICE IS CONSENT, IS COMPLICITY. 
  Here she comments on the reasons behind the prison abolition movement.

I love it.  
  Been involved since 1978. The pendulum definitely swung way way right. I hope to see it in my lifetime. 

The problem is that the Legislature and system that created the system will put up a fight due to the profiteers.   I believe like in Arizona the same people who started to put this in motion in the late 80s are the exact same who are the ones who profit. Many in AZDOC   administration now work in conjuction with the private prisons we have here. It continues to grow. 

Actually,  Arizona is in a teacher crisis.  They are down thousands of teachers. Several thousand class rooms don’t have teachers that are credentialed. They have babysitters. Governor Ducey who gave his address at the beginning of the year started all about education being a priority.  It is smoke and mirrors. He have condemned buildings that used to be the classrooms,  next to what was supposed to be temporary. 

He proposed,  get this a .04% raise for teachers. What a joke. Minimum wage gets more than college educated professionals.  

Now,  if journalists want to uncover what’s underneath the smoke and mirrors, they would find it is criminal how our education system has been raided over the last 20 years. The politicians stole from the kids and made a crime and punishment industry that gets billions. Here in Arizona,  the budget for prisons is extremely high.  Like I said a couple ofbillion or more.

Now, over the years they have put the costs onto the prisoners families.

They pay $25.00 for an application to visit per adult and children who become teems then have to get a back check even if they have visited for most of their young lives. Azdoc took control through the AZ Legislature, years ago, the inmate account and made it the property of AZDOC.  So, once it goes on their books it belongs to Department of Corrections.  They receive the interest. They get kick backs from the telephones,  the commissary . They have to buy there own clothes which are orange AZDOC uniforms. They don’t actually own them, they rent them. Doc will take them back once you are released if they are so lucky to get out. They pay electric,  they pay for Doctors appointment and there are fees that have nothing to do with inmate. Those fees are expenses for other parts of the prison system, like programs for drunk drivers who are serving time. There are no programs, no incentives to learn and better themselves.  They say they do but in reality that is another smoke and mirror. 

WHAT I AM GETTING AT IS,

WE HAVE AN EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM SET UP HERE IN ARIZONA THAT GUARANTEES THAT MORE PRIVATE PRISONS WILL BE NEEDED. 

THE PROBLEM IS THE POOR SCHOOLS ARE ATTROCITIES.  

THE PRISONS DON’T HAVE THE STAFFING.  THEY ARE SO SHORT ON STAFF THAT WOULD BE CONSIDERED A CRISIS. REMEMBER THE LONGEST PRISON HOSTAGE SITUATION HAPPENED IN LEWIS PRISON, THE EXACT PRISON THAT MY HUSBAND AND SON ARE IN. 

THEY DON’T HAVE ENOUGH FOOD TO FEED THEM  THE FOOD PACKAGE LIMIT HAS GROWN OVER SEVERAL YEARS. THE AMOUNT THEY CAN BUY IN COMMISSARY ALSO HAS GONE UP. 

THE FAMILIES OF THE INMATES ARE SUBSIDIZING THE MEALS, THE CLOTHES, THE DENTIST OR DOCTOR APPOINTMENTS.  THEY PAY ELECTRICITY,  FEES ARE PASSED ON AS WELL.  WE THEN PAY OUR TAXES AND WE PAY FOR THE BILLIONS IN AZ DEPARTMENT OF THE BUDGET. 

WHERE IS ALL THE MONEY GOING TO?  NOT TO SCHOOLS, OR PRISONERS CARE AND NOT SECURITY OF THE PUBLIC.

I WOULD LIKE AN INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER USE THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT AND FOLLOW THE MONEY TRAIL.
