By Jason Renard Walker, Deputy Minister of Labor – NABPP-PC


            Since the birth of the Texas Department of Corrections (TDC), now called the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ), Texas has used a not so subtle tool of profit and anti-social control to exploit its captives via unpaid forced labor. This method, both grassroots scholars and many average laymen agree on, is akin to a benign form of slavery – thus to say modern day slave labor.
            In fact Texas’ first form of prison management was on former slave plantations. Some of these prisons are still up and running, like the Huntsville Unit which opened its doors in the mid 19th century.
            If it wasn’t for the induction of the 13th amendment which legalized slavery (as long as one was convicted of a crime and sent to prison) It would have been a hard bargain for prisons to profit off of the prisoners.
            This is because any unfair or below minimum wage pay could be challenged in civil courts simply enough. Prisoners could refuse to work in droves, which would send an economical blow to the prison industrial complex (PIC). This dilemma also made in prison labor unions, workstrikes , and organizing to achieve these ends a violation of prisons rules and a frivolous claim in state and federal civil court.
            Texas revolutionized and dominated the art of exploitation and for profit prison management to such an extent that it became the pre and post Cold War poster child for self sufficiency and get rich for cheap schemes. Other state prisons began modeling their system off of this newly discovered scam. Texas was also the first state to operate a private prison.
            In short it is here in Texas where it was first realized that (despite the methods and work conditions that killed prisoners) it is more fruitful to run a state prison system strictly through the means of being self reliant and at the cost of forced unpaid labor. This in fact occurred after a 1902 investigation revealed that prisoners were being rented out to farmers in exchange for currency. Farmers gave kickbacks if allowed to work the men harder (convict leasing).
            In Don Umphrey’s The Meanest Man in Texas, he laid out a very good description on how rough Texas prisoners had it before and after the conclusion of the 1902 investigation: “Twice in the twentieth century there had been investigations into the TDC that had focused on cruelty and inhumane conditions under which prisoners were forced to work. Prisoners had substituted on skimpy diets; many had been beaten or worked to death. The cause of death for those who died at the hand of an overzealous guard was usually listed as natural cause.”
            As I noted in an earlier exposé on forced labor in Texas, every function of the prison is run by or operated via prison labor – that is everything short of running the cellblocks.
            But even this type of guard work was done by prisoners at one point. An example is noted in the ruling of Ruiz v Estelle that was filed by David Ruiz in 1972. His plan was to expose the grim nature of guard on prison and (guard provoked) prisoner-on-prisoner violence.
            There was an act of state wide corruption by prison guards and their promoting the use of “inmate politicians” and “building tenders” to run the prisoner and control the prisoners in an unbounded fashion. Besides terrorizing the prisoners they were the ones who opened and closed the cell doors and other doors prisoners had to pass through.
            The favorable results from the Ruiz ruling weren’t permanent and eventually forgotten about by the court system. But it did cause a shallow overhaul of how the prison was run, a benign change of policies and most notably a reform of the disciplinary procedures and process; which prevented the accusing office from being on the jury panel and punishment board, which ultimately always resulted in the prisoner being found guilty of an offense. And given maximum punishment.
            While most of the prisons aren’t as violet as they were pre 90s, the work expectations and the work conditions are pretty much the same. This is just a fraction of the topic of slave labor.

            Besides field labor, kitchen work is another daunting task that requires maximum strength and effort. Not surprising I was thrown in the kitchen with the task of working the pot room.
            This particular prison is among the top five biggest in the state. With that comes a big kitchen. And big responsibilities.
            As I stepped through the entrance door the first thing I noticed was a pickett like office in the center of the kitchen. It stood close to six feet off the ground, so that those inside stood above and looked down on the laborers. Often laughing and pointing at mistake prone workers.
            With Hitler-like tyranny, Capt Fisher and her all so faithful pig proxy stood in the window glaring at the workers. I took this as her attempt to insure nothing was stolen or eaten. And the proxies attempt to exercise his privilege; while eating a plate full of bbs ribs, scallop potatoes and what looked like a marinara sauce.
            After about a ten minute wait the proxy stepped out and handed me, what seemed to be, safety training forms. “Sign your initials in the highlighted areas” he said then went back inside with Fisher, who’d grabbed a plate of ribs for herself.
            I noticed the forms stated that by signing my initials I agreed that I was properly trained. Due to any injury I suffer while at work being a disciplinary case, for unsafe work habits, I made the ultimate mistake of entering the pickett, to ask for training.
            “Hey you get out of here, can’t you read” I was told. The door was slammed shut in my face and the food service manager, Mr. Briscoe, pointed to a sign taped on the door which stated that any problem we have we need to speak to one of the floor officers first before we try to contact the Captain. This is so that she’s not disturbed while gossiping, etc.
            After Fisher left I was allowed to go in the pickett to ask my question. “Oh man you gone make me train you” Briscoe said who looked like he been in the kitchen 300 lb too long. To satisfy his laziness I signed my initials and was sent back to the pod.

            My first week of work told the tale about how the pot room has been operating for quite some time – overworking prisoners. Once prisoner said they’d been complaining about this for months. Others quit when it was exposed that the lack of help was deliberate.
            For this particular position we are suppose to have a total of eleven workers, but instead there is usually three or four of us. This results in each one of us doing the work of three men. This is a problem that Fisher and her ilk are aware of but like she stated “I know we working the shit out of yall but you’ll get used to it.” I note that our assigned work hours are from 4am to 12pm.
            The food is served out of cafeteria style inserts which we have to load on a cart from the four chow halls. We dump out the excess food; wash them and their lids; then put them on the racks to be re-used, large pots and cornbread pans are also picked up.
            Due to the large number of prisoners, the pans are always backed up while we’re constantly working to keep up.
            No food break for us. The only opportunity we have to eat is whenever an insert comes through that still has scraps left in it. We are actually expected to pick out of the pans as we collect them and have routinely done so just to eat.
            Just imagine hands of filth digging in and eating out of an insert full of bare pig bones in search of some that still may have a little meat on them. That’s us! It’s inhumane but seen as normal. Others from different stations will even stop by, insert chasing.
            Just today, March 7th 2018, for one reason or another the cart used to pick up the inserts was gone. I believe this was a cynical act by someone since it was cabbage day and I was the one picking up the inserts.
            This caused the work to be extremely difficult as I had to hand carry the inserts to the pot room. Those that contained cabbage were filled with its juice, making them heavy. None of the food service officers had any interest in locating another cart. I was told to “man-up”.

            The food that is cooked in the kitchen is not only served to the prisoners. There is an officer dining room (ODR) were officers, nurses, commissary staff, mailroom staff, and other civilians stop by to eat during their break.
            Given that the pot room is lacking in manpower, kitchen officers don’t expect us to actually clean the pans according to policy. Their interest isn’t in exercising sanitary cleaning habits, but merely making everything look as if it’s clean. “Just rinse it off” I was told by the sanitary officer when I pointed out spoiled raw chicken stuck.
            Greasy pans: those with week old chunks of raw chicken stuck to them; roach feces and a lot more that I won’t name are used to reissue food. Since the ODR has eloquently made food out of pork and chicken, I’m surprised none of them have contracted a food borne illness. Cross contamination between raw and cooked meat is common.
            I’ve often had to run off large cockroaches, measuring well over an inch long, away from the pans. I’ve even had to scrape their feces off of the pans. Many pans I simply didn’t have the time to get to.
            These pests are colonized throughout the kitchen and are obviously domesticated and used to human contact. They just stroll along and pay us no mind. As staff pay them no mind.
            Upon someone opening a box containing cans of greens, I saw well over twenty roaches run and hide. I’ve seen many find their way into the inserts that were being sent out. If you’ve ever had a bug in your food this is how they get there.
            I must also remind you that this prison has a hospice wing. One which is for terminally ill prisoners e.g. those with advanced Hep C, AIDS, etc., so these unsanitary feeding habits may have an effect on those with low immune systems.
            I believe there should be a surprise investigation by the health department because Fisher is promoting food service habits that can get prisoners as well as staff sick or possibly killed. Their effort to consolidate prison work is the root to all this.

Monkeys versus fuckweasels in a knock-down, drag-out death-match to beat all death-matches...
The Ohio Department of Retribution and Corruption, in a legal battle with the Army of the 12 Monkeys that it must win at all costs, faces the potential loss of its plantation empire. At stake, inevitably, is the multi-million-dollar federal bloc grant fund that the ODRC uses to keep its prisons open: If the ODRC loses this first battle to the Army of the 12 Monkeys, which is now occurring in Warren County court, this loss opens the door to the Army of the 12 Monkeys challenging the ODRC's collection of bloc grant funds, the use of the Army of the 12 Monkeys' trade name to collect those funds, and the ODRC's "gang" designation of the Army of the 12 Monkeys.
The current action is THE ARMY OF THE 12 MONKEYS VS. WARREN CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTION, Warren County Case No. 17-CV-090529, which is before Judge Tepe. In this action, the Army of the 12 Monkeys is challenging the ODRC's interception of mail to the Authorized Agent of the Army of the 12 Monkeys. Despite the Army of the 12 Monkeys' official registration with the state as an unincorporated association, the ODRC insists that the Army of the 12 Monkeys is a "gang" and that it does not legally exist.
The ODRC has desperately gone to great lengths to even intercept mail from other state agencies that correspond to the Army of the 12 Monkeys' Authorized Agent. It must deny legal existence to the 12 Monkeys and prevent the 12 Monkeys from pursuing further legal action or else the ODRC faces the very real prospect that every group it labels a "gang" will register just like the 12 Monkeys did, and the ODRC will be forced to purge those groups from its "gang" database. Because those "gangs" generate millions of dollars in federal bloc grant funding, and because those millions are used to keep the prisons operating, the current battle that the ODRC wages against the 12 Monkeys' legal existence is really a battle for its own survival.
The importance of this legal battle for anyone who wants to see the prison complex economically implode cannot be overstated.
If, in the currently-pending case, the state court determines that the Army of the 12 Monkeys legally exists and that it has statutory rights under Ohio law as an unincorporated association-- as it should --then the Army of the 12 Monkeys has a right to the mail that the ODRC has intercepted... and, further, the ODRC cannot continue to pretend that the Army of the 12 Monkeys does not legally exist.
So, at stake in this legal battle is whether the Army of the 12 Monkeys legally exists... and if it does legally exist, the existence of the Ohio prison torture complex itself might soon be coming to an abrupt and under-funded halt.
The prison torture complex is so scared of what has developed here that it has even stolen the Warren County court's mail to the Army of the 12 Monkeys. That is, after the 12 Monkeys filed suit against the prison, the prison intercepted all mail from the court to the 12 Monkeys in an effort to obstruct the lawsuit. That means prison fuckweasels are not just silencing the Army of the 12 Monkeys; they are effectively silencing the courts.
In order to avoid the courts ruling against them and forcing them to recognize the legal existence of the Army of the 12 Monkeys, prison fuckweasels have set up a "judicial blockade," preventing court mail from reaching the Army of the 12 Monkeys. As the prisons operate under the executive branch-- under the governor --and as the courts are part of the judicial branch, what the prison fuckweasels are now doing is creating a kind of "constitutional crisis," a violation of the "Separation of Powers," a situation where one branch of government is shutting down the other and preventing it from operating.
All that to preserve the prison torture complex's power to crush the Army of the 12 Monkeys.
Assistant Attorney General George Horvath is defending these fuckweasels and attempting to save the prison torture complex from eventual, multi-million dollar losses. Horvath has done nothing to stop his fascist client while it maintains an illegal "judicial blockade" against the Army of the 12 Monkeys in this case. The judicial blockade benefits Horvath, who can "phone in" a win as long as the 12 Monkeys cannot receive mail from the court and fight the case. Horvath works at 150 East Gay Street on the 16th Floor, where he loves to receive lots of fastfood deliveries ordered by others or have his picture taken with fuckweasel mascots (with giant, exaggerated genitalia) delivering flowers or candy to him. His office phone is (614) 644-7233 and he loves it when you talk as long as possible to prevent him from getting work done. His fax is (866) 578-9963, and he prefers faxes on black paper written in white-out so it burns up his toner cartridges. You can email Horvath at and fill up his in-box with thousands of irrelevant messages. He loves that.
Let him know what you think about the way he defends the torture complex and its criminal conspiracies to crush the Army of the 12 Monkeys in Warren County Case No. 17 CV 090529, and explain why you think he ought to make his prison fuckweasel clients leave the Army of the 12 Monkeys alone. Call him, fax him, email him, send him flowers and gifts and fast food delivered by strippers and mascots and small-scale flash-mobs.
We are everywhere.
We are growing.
Join or support the Army of the 12 Monkeys, Unincorporated Association, today!

Message from Comrade Malik

What happened and is happening to Rashid serves as a strong reminder of the unchecked power of the criminal injustice system.  These District Attorneys, Police, Prison Officials, and Judges have all become complicit in the murdering of prisoners AND the retaliation against individuals who champion the causes of these tortured souls!

For us to remain silent makes us complicit too!

From Retaliation to Torture in a Florida Prison- Written by: Kevin "Rashid" Johnson

From Retaliation to Torture in a Florida Prison
Unfit for Habitation (2018)
By Kevin “Rashid” Johnson
Inhumane conditions

Known today as Florida State Prison (FSP) what was originally called Florida’s East Unit was
constructed in 1961, and included another institution now known as Union Correctional
Nearly 60 years old, FSP has been poorly maintained with cellblocks unfit for habitation.
During Florida’s sweltering summer and autumn months the cells, lacking air conditioning,
become sweat boxes and infested with ants, spiders and huge cockroaches, with black mold
growing on the ceilings. Rats frequent the cell blocks year round and all cells suffer water
leakage from faulty plumbing and rainfall.
Paint peels from cell surfaces like large open sores, exposing oily concrete and the rusted
surfaces of metal bunks, doors and fixtures.
During the cold months the cells remain like refrigerators, so cold that even with multiple layers
of clothing and bedding one finds it difficult to get warm.
As I exposed in a recent article (1), this condition is caused by the large cell windows’ metal
shutters having become so warped that they don’t close at all or completely, and therefore admit
the cold outside air. But the cold air doesn’t just naturally drift into the cells, it is rather sucked in
by powerful exhaust fans mounted on top of each cellblock that remain on 24/7.
So while the prison does have internal heating, it does not work because all warm air that is
supposed to blow and circulate into the cells is sucked out through the exhaust fans, while they
suck in the cold outside air through the open and drafty windows.
In many cells this icy air is pulled in with such force it creates a loud whooshing sound. The
effect is like having a window fan turned on high and blowing outside winter air into an unheated
room (with outside temperatures in the 30-50°F range).
The windows in some cellblocks are in worse repair then in others. In fact, they are worst in the
disciplinary wings (B and C-wings), which seems intentional, where in these cellblocks prisoners
may not retain thermal underwear, and are allowed only one set of thin state-issued clothing.
They are also frequently targeted with strip cell status, on which they are left for no less than
three days in the cold cells with nothing but boxer shorts.

FSP maintains one of Florida’s main solitary confinement, or Close Management, units, where
prisoners remain locked inside single occupancy cells all day every day.
Many of these cellblocks have metal commodes that must be flushed by guards from outside the
cells. The guards often refuse requests to flush them, and many times these cells house mentally
ill prisoners who don’t request flushing.
Decades of these conditions have caused thick layers of rust, and residue of fermented body
waste to build up inside these commodes and their piping, which emits a horrible stench, that
cannot be cleaned. In most cases FSP officials seldom, or never, provide prisoners with supplies
with which to try and clean them.
One can readily see that living conditions in FSP are outright barbaric.
Inhumane retaliation

When I wrote my article, “Florida Prisoners are Laying it Down,” which was published online on
January 9, 2018, the FSP warden Barry Reddish incensed by my publishing abusive conditions in
Florida’s prisons – especially in FSP – had me targeted with a bogus retaliatory disciplinary
report (DR), charging me with “inciting to riot.” I exposed this abuse in a subsequent article. (2)
On January 19th a kangaroo ‘hearing’ was staged on the DR by others of Reddish’s subordinates,
who acted as prosecutors rather than impartial triers. The hearing team’s representative, a
classification worker named M. Albritton, argued that I had no rights to write anything and the
very fact of my article’s publicizing and criticizing prison conditions was punishable conduct in
the eyes of Florida Department of Corruption (FDOC) officials. This expressing their shared
aversion alongside Reddish to having the inhumane conditions at FSP exposed to the public.
The hearing was only a formality, as my fate was already decided from when Reddish first had
the retaliatory DR written. The conviction was planned before the hearing was even conducted –
I was told beforehand that I was already slated to be moved to B-wing on disciplinary
confinement status.
Accordingly, as soon as I left the ‘hearing’ to be returned to my cell I was instructed to pack my
property and was immediately moved to B-wing, in what was obviously one of the wing’s most
damaged cells (cell B1220).
The cell light was busted open, the commode wouldn’t flush and was clogged with debris and
fermented body waste, the sprinkler head was broken off, and of course the cell window
wouldn’t close. With outside temperatures in the 30°s that morning, the cell was literally
freezing. It was so cold in fact that I was only able to write two brief legal letters before my
hands stiffened and the ink in my pen became so thick from the cold that I couldn’t write

The letters brought attention to this torturous and retaliatory abuse, but I remained with a
window that wouldn’t close from January 19th until January 26th when, while I was visiting with
an attorney, the warden decided to have the window ‘fixed.’
That morning he had a captain B. Woods enter the cell to ‘observe’ the outside air being sucked
in through the window with such force it sounded like a waterfall. During the attorney visit I was
able to have this captain admit, in the presence of the attorney and her assistant, that the window
indeed required repairing. He assured us that it had now been fixed.
It wasn’t repaired, however, but ‘fixed’ by maintenance workers bolting its warped shutters
down by power-drilling screws through them. This resulted in making the window unable to
open at all anymore, although it still admitted a draft. Which is telling, since it demonstrated
such severe structural damage and malfunctioning of FSP’s cell windows that they can’t be
repaired to operate as designed. Obviously, screwing more windows shut is no solution, because
then there’d be no air circulating into the cells at all, making them death traps during the
sweltering summer and autumn months.
So, while my cell window was screwed closed, all the other cells still have malfunctioning
windows and their occupants still suffer in extreme cold —and many are targeted daily with
abusive strip cell status as I discussed in my prior article “Time on Ice.” (3)
In fact several who were housed in cells around and next to me wrote sworn statements about
their own suffering in cells with damaged windows, and how strip cell status is routinely abused.
These prisoners included: Isaac Logan #W23317; Eduardo Vargas #L61184; Emanuel Edwards
#E37896; Urshima Weaver #J21206; Vincent Murphy, Jr. #A129485; Ulrick Watson #V28829;
Willy Brown # L80586; and Carlos Mendoza #B07979. (Their statements are posted with this

A Temporary Fix

But bolting the window closed in my cell wasn’t intended to correct or resolve my predicament.
It was only a reaction to deflect outside protests against, and attention to, the warden’s retaliatory
torture. Especially since I could and ultimately would be moved at any time to another cell with
yet another malfunctioning window. Which is exactly what occurred on February 7th, when I
was moved from B1220 to C1204. So I am now once again confined in a cell with a window in
almost the exact same condition as the one in my prior cell before it was bolted closed.
It is well known that many Florida prisons are in disrepair and unfit for habitation. This has been
exposed in the mainstream media and made the subject of state legislative hearings. (4) Yet, as
demonstrated, FSP remains and it’s prisoners continue to live in such inhumane conditions.

We need active, sustained public protest of these conditions and if they cannot be immediately
repaired, the prisoners should be removed from them.
Contact Florida legislators, like representative David Richardson, who sits on the criminal justice
subcommittee, about these conditions, and demand their correction or our removal from such
housing, and an end to my retaliatory treatment for publicizing such abuses.
