Jarvis Gordon letter


Typed from February 1st letter
I don’t know why they put me on AC because I was in Green Bay and they told me I would be getting out of seg september 19th 2016 but in August of 2016 they put me on AC when I was going to get out of seg Boscobel put me on. And don’t want to take me off. But on the support (my question-do you have any support for after you are released?)- not really and right now it’s looking like I will be released to Kenosha County. Can you help me get a house before I get out. If I can I would like to keep you up to date? August 5th I got to Boscobel – I was 19 when they put me on and I been down from February 2013 and have not got one program given me. You do what you want with this.

Cody is a 24  year old kid sitting in solitary confinement in Waupun Correctional. 
 In his first letter below he explains he belonged to a tough elite group and tell 
how he got where he is now. He is writing hoping to find someone that will help 
him keep sane. There is no treatment or training here, another example of our 
completely dysfunctional system which neither rehabilitates nor keeps us safe.  
We can help him over-come the obstacles by showing him what true friendship 
is for. I don't think many of these kids know, or have experienced love or caring that 
doesn't have a dozen strings attached.

Michael is all alone,asks for stuff, friendship:

above transcribed:
Peg? These CO’s is doing us inmates wrong. I got placed in the hole because cellmate got caught with porn. One of the COs asked me to pat search me and I let him while I was talking to CO Wickman. Another person came from behind and grabbed me by the shoulder roughly. I turned around and got in a fighting stance because I thought that it was an inmate that grabbed me like that. All the correctional officers rushed me to the all and hand cuffed me and I didn’t do nothing wrong. And in the rule book correctional officers don’t supposed to put they hands on an inmate unless they say it’s okay. The white shirt here gave me a 60 DS (disciplinary segregation)  time in the hole with no half time and I did do nothing wrong.

Not only that but in seg us over here don’t even get rec or go to the law library. They always make excuses that they busy but don’t none of these correctional officers even try to make sure we get what we got coming. And what’s so crazy we get oatmeal bread and peanut butters damner all the time for breakfast. They can’t even feed us inmates enough to keep us full until lunch time. Ever since this warden came here everything been going downhill. They’ve given us a 60 for 3 Ds and 3 Ds ain’t nothing but cell confinement or loss of rec. They don’t even give us face towels when its shower time in segregation. They don’t even have cameras in the hallways or they don’t even do 30 minute rounds and come and check up on us inmates and make sure we’re alive.

One time I didn’t have my inhaler so I had to kick me door and I was kicking for four hours before they came and seen what I wanted. I try to ICE ( file with Inmate complaint examiner) these things but I know my mail is being messed with because I wait months and months before I have to just write another one. But I got so tired of they B.S. I just stop writing them altogether. I really do appreciate the stamps because I’m all by myself in here and don’t have nobody doing nothing for me. It be very hard at times for me to get hygiene because I don’t have no money. Other inmates be having to give me things. All my family is gone so when these correctional officers do things to me I just try to keep my cool.

But trying to do that all the time is not easy that’s why I be segregation so much because I don’t let nobody disrespect at all. Sometimes I feel like giving up on life because I don’t have nobody who love me and it’s very hard in here but Allah knows I’m trying so hard. I don’t have a tv or radio so that’s why I just stay in segregation.

I just wish I had a family who loved me and would do things for me when I need it most. Bless you, you are a special person and I wish I had a mother like you who can love me.
