SHU, Hunger Strikes, and Shakedowns; An update from Doug.

By the time you read this I will have started a hunger strike.  I'm starting it tomorrow Friday, Sept 12th.  I am going on the strike because the C.O's did a massive shakedown in the entire SHU.  They took a fair amount of my personal property.  It was a shakedown that was initiated just because a new assistant warden wanted to make an impression and flex his muscles so to speak.  They took a lot of people's personal property but I'm the only one not accepting it lying down.  Also, they cancelled our commissary next week and we only go to commissary every two weeks, so we'll have to wait two more weeks.  They took all of my batteries, toothpaste, and my palm brush.  It's not a lot but almost everything I own back here.  Let's see where this goes.  Please call and find out how they are allowed to do this.  Talk to warden Jarvis.

He could really use your support. He's been in SHU a few months now. Books, letters, photos, and puzzles would be a great help. His full wish list is here
