Default "The Strip-Search" and "The Walk of Shame" (Timothy's Diary)

Timothy’s Diary (Thursday, March 20, 2003 and Tuesday, March 25, 2003)


“The Strip-Search” by Timothy Greenlee

At about 2:00 pm officer Husky and C. Wright came to my cell and handcuffed me, saying “shakedown”. I was placed in the 600 range top shower while they searched. They proceeded to tear my cell all to pieces for the umptieth time. After about an hour or so, they put me back in my cage and what a sight to behold. – Everything I own, all of my pitiful belongings, including letters, books, legal records, etc. were in a two by five foot pile right in the center of my cage – including my blanket, towel and clothes. Everything had been trampled on. All of my legal transcripts were mixed up, hundreds of pages – literally about 1200 pages of transcripts – which would eventually take me many hours to put back into order. It is hard to say, how I felt – the strongest feeling was frustration – for I know that reporting will do no good – in fact, will probably result in additional acts similar to this. So, I had to smile and shake my head, but in a sad way. It was not funny. I never said a single word to either of them before, during or after this abuse. I am practicing self-control, learning discipline and patience and longsufference. Something tells me, that I’m going to need it in the times ahead. Here is the thing: K. Husky and C. Wright were not even working on B-EAST today! THEY WERE BOTH ASSIGNED TO B-WEST. This means that they deserted their assigned position of coming over here to harass me. Here is the hard part: After these goons were finished trashing my cage, they came to the shower and ordered me to strip all of my clothing off, piece by piece – as I handed them each article of clothing, Husky would walk the ten feet or so to my cell and throw it inside on the pile. When I was naked, they even took my shower shoes from me, leaving me barefoot, standing in filth. They then ordered me to “bend over and spread your ass-cheeks open”. Well, one has two choices here- #1 you bend over and spread your ass open for “inspection” voluntarily, or #2 you refuse to do so voluntarily- in which case they will form a five men “Extraction Team”, wearing full-body-armour and while as sixth guard videotapes the “episode”, this “Goon Squad” will enter the shower stall [or your cage if that is the case] and use [excessive] force to spread your legs and ass-cheeks open- in which case you will be injured, plus you will have become the star of a SHU “porno” flick of sorts- which will be widely viewed, not only by the other SHU guards on both shifts, but by guards and civilans in WVCF proper. In short, you can do it the easy way, or have it done to you the hard way. Either way the conclusion will be the same: Your ass-cheeks will be spread open and “inspected”. Believe me, when I say, some of these hillbilly guards PREFER IT ROUGH. Of course, everything that I get into this situation I debate about making the bastards “suit up” and take what they want. So, all of this flashed through my imagination in a few seconds, while Husky repeated: “Bend over and spread your ass-cheeks!” and added this time: “we’ll suit up and do it for you!” Swallowing my pride, which blazed white-hot out of every pore, I bent over and spread my butt open, while K. Husky shined a flashlight on my ass, then I stood back up. Husky said: “Do it again and not so fast this time.” I didn’t say anything, just complied, albeit red-faced and through grinding teeth. If you could have seen the look on those two bastards’ faces, when I turned back around. They were actually ENJOYING this! What kind of a monster could be entertained by these acts of cruelty and psychological torment upon a completely disarmed, defenseless prisoner? They were actually smiling.
Anyway, they made me walk back down to my cage naked and barefoot. K. Husky went back and searched the shower stall, where I’d been strip-searched. On his way back past my cell, Husky smiled and said: “Have a nice day!” Yeah, right, motherfucker.
“The Walk of Shame” by Timothy Greenlee

Officers Horton and Baum came to my cell and told me to “strip”! I complied. Officer Horton said: “Back up into the center of your cell and turn around. Arms in the air. Bend over and spread your cheeks. Put on a pair of underwear only.” I said: “ I have none.” He said: “You’ll have to go naked then.” And smiled and evil smile. I said: “I’m not leaving this cell naked. I want to speak to a Sergeant.” Glaring at me Officer Horton walked down the 600 range and came back with Sergeant Merrit. I heard Merrit say: “…he’ll have to just go naked then!” Sergeant Merrit then glared at me and said beligerently: “ Turn around and cuff up!” I warily complied. I had no idea what was going on! It’s always like that around here. They treat me like a mushroom- Keep me in the dark and feed me bullshit! So, naked as I came into this world, I was led down the top range, then down the stairs, then out cross the bottom range with crazy men screaming and laughing and whistling, making fun of me. I was led out into the B-East core area, out into the B-end main hallway, and into B-West core area and then onto 1100 range, up the stairs, down the top range and was then placed inside the shower stall, once again listening to the offenders screaming obscenities, jeering and making fun of me. After about an hour or so, officers Wright and Stifal came and got me and led me back, naked as before, the same way I’d come, out of 1100, B-West, across the hall and thenback to my cell in B-East 611, again the object of jeering and catcalls from other offenders because I was naked. My cell had been absolutely trashed, yet again. All of my pitiful belongings had been searched and then uncerimoniously dumped into a pile in the center of the cell. My bottle of vitamins and aspirins had been dumped across the floor. My deoderant had been thrown into the toilet and lay in there still. But, after about two hours of resorting and checking, I determinded that nothing had been seriously damaged and nothing had been taken. It’s not often that they let me off so easy! Funny thing about what happened was, I’m sure they planned and thought that this would humiliate me. But, they were wrong again, as usual, about me. I was not embarrassed. I am very at peace with myself, especially when I’m placed in such situations. I was a little apprehensive about what those big hillbilly guards had planned, but like I say, I wasn’t humilitated by being paraded about naked like I was, like most men and women would have been, especially with all of the whistling and screaming done by the offenders. I am in very good physical condition and it shows and what more, I have a moderately large dick. So, I was not “ashamed” of my appearance like others would have been. I’m sure it would infuriate these staff members, if they knew, that their little demonstration instead of humiliating me as they planned, had resolved me to continue writing this, my daily journal of what I witness back here on the SHU! They have completely and utterly misjudged me. I’m determined now to keep a journal of what happens back here.

That is so so sad. I can't believe these guards are getting away with this. Torchering someone like that is cruel, like it isn't bad enough that they are already locked away in a cell, but to have tp put up with that and not be able to do anything about it. I would expect it from another prisoner maybe but from someone who is suppose to show authority and respect the law, it's pathetic.
I really do hope things get better for you Tim. You sound like a very strong person and I'm sure you'll make it thru this.

It's hard to believe that people can continue to walk & talk after they've lost their souls, but this is proof it can happen. Nobody, no matter how they've offended, deserves to be treated this way.

Stay strong, Tim. Yes, you can detach emotionally from these things that are happening to you. Don't ever let them get the best of you. You are a million times the man they are.

You are in my thoughts & prayers.

Adrienne

Soulmate, please tell Tim to hang in there. I had suspected that this crap went on in the prisons. My Hunny glosses it over because I know that he doesn't want to worry me about it. But to hear the unvarnished truth is really frightening to say the least.

(By the way, I think that anyone who purposely takes away another person's dignity and humanity by doing these heinous acts should suffer dire consequences. No matter what side of the law they are.)

And you hang in there too, Soulmate. It takes a special person to have the guts and determination to stand by and take care of their loved one who is in prison and treated in such a horrible manner. I give you much credit for getting the real word out to all. Take care and God bless.

I applaud Tim’s inner strength. I do have a question for Tim or for you Soulmate. With letters being read coming in and going out. And for so unknown reason, prisons get a bit touchy when they are criticized. Is Tim concerned about reprisals and how is his stories getting out? Just curious.

Hi Lady Di,
of course, Tim is aware of the "drilling" and mind games that the guards exercise day by day, but does he have another choice?! He mails his essays to me, I type them up and I even return the original and the typed version to him. So far it has worked well and it is a good opportunity to make his voice heard out here.
Thank you for asking.

I THINK THE GUARDS IN THE PRISON SYSTEM USE THEIR ATHOURITY TO MAKE THEM FEEL BETTER ABOUT THEM SELFS,MAYBE THERE NOT THAT INPORTANT ON THE OUTSIDE MAYBE THERE WIVES WEAR THE PANTS IN THERE FAMILES AND THEY HAVE NO SAY IN THERE HOMES. SO WHEN THEY GET TO WORK THEY HAVE TO SHOW THERE ATHOURITY,
BUT WE ALL KNOW THAT IF THEY MET THAT SAME PERSON ON THE OUTSIDE THEY WOULD PROBABLY BE SCARED SHITLESS OF THEM AND WALK AWAY.

Dayna, EXACTLY!!!
Guards are payed badly, they have wives at home and nontheless they are chasing women and/or inmates as though they were dogs. I mean, what kind of person wants to be a guard?! To pick this profession is already weird. I believe, many [not all!!] choose this job, because they want to control others, exercise "power". In real life out here they have not many chances perhaps since they can't stand the competition in whatever sense. Of course, there are also guards who are sorry for so many things, but I'm talking about the ones, who annoy us. They work for a system that is supposed to be just, JUST!!! The funny thing is, some of those "soldiers" of the "justice system", are more criminal than many inmates!! Sorry, but I can't respect certain guards, who abuse their position.

Soulmate, would it anger you more if you knew that gaurds are NOT paid badly. I don't know about anywhere else than CA, but they are paid VERY well - I have heard that many are making over $70K per year. But I totally agree with you, that only a very small man (or woman) would degrade and humiliate another human being "just because they can." These people are such losers in life that the only thing they can do to feel better about themselves is to be bullies and pick on people that can't defend themselves. I'll bet they kick puppies and kittens too!

Lynne, I only know that guards in IN make US$ 12 an hour. That's not much. This is also why it's easy to grease their palms, you see? And this is also why some of them rob inmate's property. The higher officials in prisons are paid well, VERY WELL, that's true. And those guys are also involved in corruption and often money laundering on larger scales. That's higher politics already. ....Ridiculous to believe they were on the right side of the law.

Lynne, I now see why the guard union is in love with Davis!

What I want to know is why aren't guards given a psychological test before they get hired. The state should also have yearly or every other year testing of all guards.
Many police departments around the country have psych. profiles done on the cops. Why aren't they doing this with guards. What infuriates me is that what many of these co's do on the inside they would be prosecuted for doing it on the outside.

Soulmate, as far as the guards robbing inmate property, my son saw that happen to many of his friends and it almost happened to him. The co in charge of property being shipped in would take it for him self or give it to his teen age sons. It was no secret, everyone knew about it. When the guys order something it was a roll of the dice. That alone pisses me off because it's someone else $$ he was stealing (the inmate family).
