This is typical of prison violation of incarcerated citizens rights as US citizens. Yes they are US citizens even though they have committed an act that got them incarcerated. Freedom of speech and the right to share communication of thought and beliefs is one of the most fundamental elements of our Constitution even when incarcerated. I may not agree with you but I"ll fight to the death for your's and mine right to free speech.
Rogue guards who would torture and kill to maintain their reign of fear and protect illegal trade in drugs or cell phones need to be brought into the light of public awareness.
Many times the only one to do so is a jailhouse attorney no matter what his crime an individual can have journalistic talent.
We tend to overlook the person and see only an act to access them by. If we were judged by one mistake or indiscretion we made in our lifetime no one would ever progress.

Thanks for posting this information. This is a travesty. While recently telling a doctor friend of mine about my son's prison health care she said, "Sadly, no amount of medical care can alleviate the inhumane conditions of incarceration inflicted by the prison system of our country; conditions which neither serve any purpose nor save any money. It is ironic that we have so much more in common with backwards, repressive countries than with the rest of the developed world." Our prison authorities are out of control and need to be exposed.

I am an attorney representimg in inmate at CSP Solano for wrongful retaliatio resulting in a number of false 115 reports, his placement in the hole, as well as confiscation of property, including musical property that he is no longer even permitted access to (which hje owned and was good enough to donate). He has further been denied medical/dental care. ANY ideas of other such suits to give me ideas of claims and/or other simiar stories of other inmates suffereing similar injustices.
