2018 Survey of U.S. Prisoners on Prison Labor — Moorbey’z Blog

by MIM(Prisons) June 2018 permalink The Western press often aims the diparaging term “labor camps” at Asia and the former socialist countries of the world. Yet, with the largest prison population in the world, it should not be surprising that it is the Amerikans who have more prisoners working for them than any other nation. And their labor […]

ICE Allegedly Puts Woman in Solitary Confinement to Get Her to Recant Claims of Sexual Assault

ICE Allegedly Puts Woman in Solitary Confinement to Get Her to Recant Claims of Sexual Assault

Laura Monterrosa, an asylum seeker who fled physical and sexual abuse in El Salvador and escaped to the U.S., has been held in the T. Don Hutto Residential Center, an immigration jail in Texas, since last summer. She has also publicly spoken about the sexual abuse she says she has experienced during her confinement.
On Tuesday night, the advocacy organization Grassroots Leadership issued a press release alleging that, over the weekend, Monterrosa was locked in solitary confinement for 60 hours and “told she would not be released from solitary confinement until she publicly stated that she had not been sexually abused.”

 

Hutto is run by CoreCivic, a private prison company. In January, Monterrosa told The Outline that she had been abused by a female guard there for months, and that other guards had known about it. Monterrosa had initially published an anonymous letter detailing her abuse in November. Then, CoreCivic guards, who were tipped off by an anonymous call, interviewed her. She was also interviewed by ICE officials and the local sheriff’s office. “They treated me like I wasn’t a victim — like I was a criminal,” Monterrosa told The Outline. ICE and the sheriff’s office both closed the case. …https://splinternews.com/ice-allegedly-puts-woman-in-solitary-confinement-to-get-1822993354

GATESVILLE, Texas (KWTX) The death of a female Coryell County Jail inmate who died after an altercation with jail staff has been ruled a homicide but no criminal charges have been levied.
Justice of the Peace Coy Latham pronounced Kelli Leanne Page, 46, dead following an altercation inside the jail between Page and corrections officers.
Latham said Wednesday the report of autopsy classifies Page’s death as homicide but no criminal charges have been filed.
Texas law says a victim’s death can be ruled a homicide when it happens as the result of another’s actions, but does not necessarily involve criminal activity.
Latham said he will set a formal death inquest sometime before Christmas but on Wednesday morning had not yet docketed the issue.
State law allows investigating entities in such cases to withhold information about the death pending an inquest, which Latham said would be held in open court.

Page died October 8 after being restrained inside her cell.

 

Jailers attempted to revive her with CPR and other life-saving efforts but to no avail. … http://www.kwtx.com/content/news/Coryell-County-Jail-inmate-death-ruled-homicide-462294703.html
