Just wanting to let you know that the inmates here at Sandstone are alive and raising hell. There are a few issues I'd like to get out in the open.
Last December, I was put in the hole and lost many privileges for alcohol; .05 to be exact. Last week, our kitchen foreman stood on the serving line roaring drunk. He cussed inmates, slurred in our food, and knocked the same water glass over 3 times in front of me. Not only was he drunk, but was extremely rude and obscene. Nothing happened to him for his actions. "One of the BOP's finest"
Medical care is at an all time low here at the rock. Two inmates have died here since I arrived in '95. I am afraid several more may if we are not allowed proper medical attention. We are diagnosed and treated by P.A.'s. Only occasionally do we see a doctor, and then he is a clone. Saving money is the # 1 priority for Medical Services at Sandstone, not saving lives.
Our old Captain and staff got caught with their hands in the cookie jar. They were padding overtime hours and had conduct unbecoming of an officer. We all thought they were fired. Now we find out they were transferred and mildly demoted for their actions.
These people are drunks, drug addicts, thieves, and lazy ,shiftless liars. We have to depend on them for our meals, health, and welfare.
There are asbestos covered pipes, lead paint is chipping off the walls, and the water is over-chlorinated. We live in a death house with a Nazi staff laughing all the way. I have asbestos and lead paint samples that they say don't exist.
About six months ago, I quit writing and complaining. The answers I got back from the BOP staff were a joke. In 3 short years, they have worn me down. The courts are a farce; the government is phony and corrupt. Things keep getting worse, both in here, and out there.
We can't change things from in here. You have to do it from out there, before you end up in here with us!
