Letter Appeal For Jerome White-Bey - Still Being Denied Medical Treatment!!
26/01/11 Jerome White-Bey is the founder and president of the Missouri Prisoner Labor Union, an organisation of Missouri prisoners and their outside supporters who are organizing around labor and other prison conditions. Since the founding of the MPLU, Jerome has been subject to administrative harassment and retaliation. He was in the "hole" (administrative segregation) for two years following the formation of the MPLU and has constantly been moved in and out of segregation since. Jerome had been told over a 3-4 year period by doctors at three different prisons that he had kidney problems which was a result of having diabetes. This kidney infection had been left untreated for a long period of time and after letters of complaint and phone calls made to the prison from a previous letter appeal Jerome was then sent for tests and told that it was not in fact his kidneys that had been making him unwell but that he has serious liver problems from having Hepatitis C, which he was unaware he had till that point. He was then told that he needs a course of Interferon treatment that will last for 12 months and he'll have to be transferred to another prison to have the treatment. Then, after further time and more letters of complaint, he was told his transfer to start the treatment had to be delayed because he had a hypothyroid. He was given medication to take and told that this medication should bring his thyroid to a normal state after two months. Shortly after he was moved to the segregation unit under an investigation but no-one has ever told him why. Jerome feels that this was nothing more than retaliation against him for the previous letter appeals. After many months passed and filing numerous complaints he was eventually told that he had been cleared of all the allegations made against him. But all the time that he was in the Segregation Unit his health relating to his thyroid condition, which should have been brought back to normal a long time ago now, and his Hepatitis C has not been monitored at all. He was not even seen by a doctor during this time. Jerome now faces a new problem. After being cleared of all the allegations against him he should be released back into the general population but because his custody level has just recently been dropped from a C-4 to a C-3 that means that he can not be housed in that prison so he will have to remain in segregation until he is transferred, which could take a while. All this time his health is not being monitored and gives the prison administration more excuses for delays. But the answer is simple! A place in a C-3 level prison does not need to be found yet because he should be transferred to start the Interferon treatment for his Hepatitis C and the longer they take approving this the worse his condition becomes. Jerome thanks everyone for the complaints that have been made previously to get him this far but asks that we write letters or call the prison again to get him transferred and started on the treatment he needs.
