Report: NWCX Inmate “Hit Repeatedly in the Face” by Correction Officer
AND “SPRAYED IN THE FACE BY A CHEMICAL AGENT”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Feb. 1, 2016) — On Monday, The Post & Email received the following letter from an inmate at the Northwest Correctional Complex (NWCX) who has corresponded with us before. Identification of the inmate and correctional staff involved have been redacted to avoid retaliation from either side.
NWCX is operated by the Tennessee Department of Correction (TDOC), whose commissioner is Derrick Schofield.
As Schofield and other Tennessee authorities have failed to respond to our many reports over the last nine months of prisoner abuse, corruption, and lack of adequate medical, The Post & Email has reported this and other incidents to an authority outside the state, speaking personally with an individual who noted our concerns.
