Above the Law – by Steve McCain

One must acknowledge having done wrong before repentance can be made, before one can muster the resolve necessary to commit to doing right. This is true for addicts of all assortments; and it is as applicable to a nation’s rulers as it is for the nation’s ruled. So before the United States can progress towardContinue reading “Above the Law – by Steve McCain”

No Matter How Difficult – by Comrade Z

Direct action means industrial action directly by, for, and of the workers themselves, without the treacherous aid of labor misleaders or scheming politicians; a strike that is initiated, controlled and settled by the workers directly affected is direct action. Direct action is combined action, directly on the job to secure better job conditions. Direct actionContinue reading “No Matter How Difficult – by Comrade Z”

FDC Englewood – by Eric King

from supportericking.org When someone is indicted federally, they are sent to either a private facility, or a Federal detention center (or held in county jail through US Marshal contracts). People indicted in Florence get sent to the Englewood FDC. Right now there are abortion bombers, people called killers, people called gang leaders, but not me.Continue reading “FDC Englewood – by Eric King”

Stop the Illusion – by Comrade Z

Prisons are not operating to rehabilitate you, but to tame, train and punish. The truth is out there: Mass corruption is everywhere in Texas, especially in TDCJ, and you, the very one they call a “resident”, is really a commodity. Your ID says “offender”, instead of worker/slave. TDCJ has no real intention of fixing you.Continue reading “Stop the Illusion – by Comrade Z”

Abuse in Prison – by Steve McCain

Largely because prisons are closed institutions to which neither the public nor the press nor prisoner rights advocates have access, the abuse that takes place within them exists largely as an unknown. As one might imagine, this fact only exacerbates the danger. It is upon this that I wish to shed light. Abuse in USContinue reading “Abuse in Prison – by Steve McCain”

The Open Prison Initiative, Part 2 – by Steve McCain

Challenges abound for the captive storyteller, for the public audience is only hesitantly, if at all, receptive. Alas, the public is the prisoner’s biggest skeptic; justly perhaps, but perhaps not. The criminal justice system pulled quite the fanciful trick when it managed to impeach the only voice that could authoritatively witness against it. It hasContinue reading “The Open Prison Initiative, Part 2 – by Steve McCain”

“You’re an Anarchist, Mr. Zuniga” – by Comrade Z

“Our nation was born in genocide. We are perhaps the only nation which tried as a matter of national policy to wipe out its indigenous population. Moreover, we elevated that tragic experience into a noble crusade. Indeed, even today we have not permitted ourselves to reject or feel remorse for this shameful episode.” -Martin LutherContinue reading ““You’re an Anarchist, Mr. Zuniga” – by Comrade Z”
