They’ve been playing dirty like this for six months. They threw away my mail for over two months. The records here will show that they haven’t allowed me to go to recreation since September 1. All because I got in the media and did an interview. They’ve been denying me access to the law library, law clerks and legal material for almost three months now. They threw my laundry away (when I sent it out to be washed). They “lied”, writing three straight bogus Disciplinary Reports (DR) to keep me here in lock up, deny me visits, media interviews and tried like hell to shut the death row poet down. They placed me on heightened security, suspended my visits for two years. All this is because I’m exercising my right to freedom of speech. Yes, they are doing all of this and so much more. All of this I’ve written about that you have never gotten to read. A lot of my blogs were thrown away here. The ones I did get out on racism, inmate assaults and so many other controversial issues never got posted. I never got to tell you all of the hell that I have experienced. That destroyed me! I can’t even make you understand how I feel. It took the wind out of my sail. It made me want to just roll over and die. That’s the best way I can explain it.
I fought the best fight I could and I was running into road blocks, brick walls…my hands were seriously tied and not just by what the administration was doing but by the censorship that I was enduring. It’s tearing me up to just lie down… but for now I must. I’ve got to recruit some new individuals to run and operated the death row poet blog. I need a new, stronger alliance with individuals with the same mind set and determination that I have, with a no surrender mentality. I don’t believe in violence but I damn sure don’t believe in silence! Peaceful protest, letter writing campaigns, hunger strikes and yes I’ll risk and give my life if need be to further the cause. Whether it’s my fight against capital punishment or prison abuse, if you believe in it, then you must be willing to step up and risk everything to accomplish your goal. You must have a no back down mentality. If you don’t have it, you don’t believe in it.
I’m looking to recruit strong willed individuals who are hell bent on bringing change to the system. I’m one man on a mission to bring this change. I just need help and I hope to find it. For now this site will be left up to read, but this will be my last blog until I find the assistance I need to go at this whole heartedly with one goal….Victory.
In peace, love and friendship,
