Default Jumpsuit rebellion at Ely State Prison

I have heard that all of a sudden the warden of ESP, in all his great intelligence and compassion, ordered an edict that commands all prisoners to be wearing their jumpsuits when they come to the door to get their food. These are (mostly) locked down 23/7 and DR inmates who hang out in their cells in boxers or sweats or whatever. Now if they don't have the jumpsuit on they are REFUSING to give them food. Inmates who have filed grievances have been told they will be given food when they COMPLY with institutional policy. I think this also may apply to guys who wear blue. Most inmates are REFUSING to comply and are not eating. This has been going on since Thursday. I suggest that anyone with a loved one in that hellish facility call and tell them to start feeding people! It is against the law to make a requirement to be fed. There is no reason for this policy other than arbitrary cruelty. Thanks for your support.

I say we call the FBI and news agencies. This is utterly ridiculous. Im going to start asking Carol Leonard some questions and see what she has in her bag of tricks. Stay tuned.

She is a huge prison advocate that actually has a reputation to back up her group on Yahoo. She said that besides confronting the warden and turning them into the IG, all we can do is try to talk to media outlets. I dont think up here they will print much, the nevada appeal and reno gazette are pretty much in their pocket.

hmmmm the IG? I know they wouldn't do anything, but it would be irritating to the warden, which makes me happy

Yeah well we are pretty much burnt, the whites decided to pull the rebellion and starve themselves in protest. So that is going to be what it is labelled even if there is truth to it. This is why we havent gotten phone calls lately, everyone. They locked down the prison and moved everyone around and did mucho amounts of write ups. Long live NDOC *rolls eyes and b*tches about her wasted tax dollars at work*

My husband isn't white so where did that come from? Well, it's over now but the staff there put their signatures on pretty stupid stuff saying It is your choice to be fed or not. Comply and we will give you food. That is SO ILLEGAL!

came from three of the actual inmates. Unit one it was the whites striking. They will have plenty of documentation stating it was a strike, thats why they have c.i.'s there. Good luck its a losing battle.

It was a strike. A strike because they refused to put on jumpsuits to get food, and were denied food. Of course it was a strike. Anyway, it wasn't all whites involved in this, and I can't believe everything is a losing battle.

(looks at the Q)

If you got the money for lawyer baby, I gots the time....I really hate the idea of getting involved with the ACLU again. I just know mine is in to precarious of a situation for me to risk him right now and Ive got cute come to court papers over that situation we talked about. So Im not sure if Im on muzzled status cause of it or not. Ill have to ask my lawyer. They know they have me by my a** right now because of where they placed the other half.....nice to know the enemy list can be lost. We all need to PM as they watch these boards.
