FCI Elkton Food Strike Update #3

Letter I wrote to the guy who dismissed my FOIA request:

August 8th, 2011 Henry J Sadowski
US Department of Justice
Federal Bureau of Prisons
Northeast Regional Office
US Custom House – 7th floor
2nd & Chestnut Streets
Philadelphia, PA 19106 RE: Freedom of Information Request No. 2011-08416
 Dear Henry,
 I trust you know that your response was not responsive to my request. Nevertheless, I am very dissatisfied with this response. I requested shift logs and incident reports from specific days. Nothing you say can convince me that there were no shift logs or incident reports for those days. If there is a criminal investigation going on, the sensitive information could be redacted from those logs and reports.
 You are lying to me. I do not appreciate it. Do you know what “freedom of information” means? Are you trying to prove to me that we do not live in a country that is at all responsive to or respectful of it’s citizens? If so, you are doing a good job. I have to admit I’m not surprised, I've been on to you all for a while. I expect I’ll soon verify my suspicion that the bureaucrats in the appeals process share your disdain for the citizens you allegedly serve.
 Have a nice day, you authoritarian paper pusher.

Next I'll write a letter to the attny general appeals process, but that one will be dull. When i get a dismissive response from those fuckers, i'll share my snotty retort.

In other news on this subject, kate's working on publishing an OP ED article from our penpal at Elkton about their lighting policy.

  1. I just got an email from a friend in Elkton FCI. It's their 4th day without hot water. A water line had burst, but while crews tried to repair the water line, they hit the gas and sewer line too. Needless to say, things are not much better, if at all!
    Broken gas line sounds a bit dangerous, and a broken sewer line is unsanitary to say the least! If it had been a hospital or home, the place would have been evacuated and possibly condemned! They may be inmates, but they're still human!
