Horrendous Abuse of Inmate Reported at Tennessee Prison

“WE WILL CALL MEDICAL WHEN YOU BLEED TO DEATH”

by Sharon Rondeau

(Sep. 18, 2018) — The Post & Email is in receipt of a letter from an inmate at the Northwest Correctional Complex (NWCX) in Tiptonville, TN describing an incident allegedly occurring on September 11, 2018 in which an inmate was allegedly punched in the face, kicked, and allowed to bleed on the floor in the Protective Custody (PC) unit.

Virtually all inmates placed in PC have been threatened by other inmates, most commonly gang members.  According to TDOC Administrative Policies and Procedures, an inmate’s placement in PC must be reviewed at frequent, regular intervals, beginning with “at least every seven days” (page 4).

Most, if not all, readers will find the following disturbing, and it is not recommended for children.

The writer reported that the incident, occurring on Tuesday, September 11, began with an inmate’s fear of returning to the general population after a staff review of his PC placement denied him further protection.  “Sgt. Ward punched inmate Anderson in the face and other officers helped drag inmate Anderson up the stairs and throw him in his cell,” the inmate’s letter continues.

    These officers are sadists; they should be removed from their jobs and have criminal charges filed against them for reckless endangerment and deliberate indifference. There is no excuse for this! TDOC knows these crimes against humanity are ongoing within their system and yet they do nothing. Gov. Haslam knows this is occurring but is apparently too concerned about the monies being made through the legal slavery of incarceration that feeds the corrections industry. Wonder exactly how much revenue is made per inmate per month? Monies from Federal programs, most of which are a joke, in addition to monies from telephone calls, commissary, vending machines in visitation and local money being made from relatives who have to travel to see their loved ones.
    It’s all about the money and the money is covered in blood.
