Cool Four strips a day with dash of corruption

Around June 2007 when Stiner was still a level 3 GP yard Prison Industries had cabinet shop on an adjacent yard and need to completely restaff it. They came to Stiner to recruit. Since I have master's in mechanical engineering and a high degree of CAR proficiency I didn't have a problem securing the position of CAR designer. There were two civilian employees of Prison Industries that ran the program. One, I think was pretty clean the one I worked for wasn't. Over the next 8-1/2 months I did countless projects that had nothing to do with the prison at all. Have complete list of each "customers" personal info, the 4 DOC guards that "helped" the projects move out the back gate. My boss gave me a zip drive to store all the designs, detail drawings, cut list/material lists, including costs. He would warn me to get off a specific design project when management from Phoenix were inroute as well as tell me to alert the floor crew to hide materials. These projects ranged from custom shoe garages, custom inlaid hard wood desks to complete room remodels with custom cabinetry. Over time I "acquired a 2nd thumb drive which I still have with full documentation including names badge numbers. The boss's computer had a biometric reader and I can tell you the Tom Cruise's technique with a fingerprint works. Anyway day began before the yard opened -we eat breakfast as a group alone in the chowhall and then proceeded to our first full strip search before sitting in the sallyport cattle pen, waiting from the shop staff to escort us to work (about 200 yards sallyport to sallyport). Now 12-1/2 years later I'm sharing this and wondering what I want to do with a no longer needed insurance policy. The files that I obtained from the boss's included profits as well as who got what. I know that the management didn't have a clue of what he was doing. I would generate a cultist and a truck from Florence would show the following day and it didn't matter what wood was selected. We when back to Stiner for lunch (strip in strip out) through the same sallyport cattle pens. Always got back to Stiner after count. Never once had my thumb drive get even c posse to being compromised. That includes visits ever weekend and so many " bend over, spread them and cough" I lost count. After they shutdown the cabinet shop the boss was transferred to Florence, where they finally caught him and fired him. The four DOC guards still work there today.
There several Saturdays when he would come over to Stiner and pull me out and take me to the shop and let me work on a project totally alone and completely unsupervised while he would disappear for hours at a time. There were a total of 8 computers, 3 were CAD loaded hotrods with net access...need I say more. After each project was completed he would completely assemble and take pictures before wrapping it for shipment. He got his install crew from the level 1 yard across the road from Lewis.

What do you want to accomplish?

Is it to get inmates compensation for their work? Is it to show that a contractor, no longer used by ADOC, was corrupt, to get 4 guards fired, to take out a warden who may still be employed somewhere? (It doesn't sound like what you have would provide proof to connect any of it to that company or to ADOC guys at the top). Does any of your documentation connect to anyone now in politics, government, or authority positions that should be taken down? Is it to publicize proof of how the prison system has been using inmates for profits by individuals?

I am not sure what can be accomplished, but maybe the ACLU or some other prison advocacy group would be the first place to tell your story to in order to see what can be accomplished with the information you have.
