Letter Appeal For Jerome ..., 15 Feb 2011 [cached]
Letter Appeal For Jerome White-Bey - Still Being Denied Medical Treatment!!
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.

They are about two inmates : Jerome White-Bey , educator and organizer for the Missouri Prison Labor Union and Shackrein Thomas , Drug War POW , murdered by the authorities who put him in a cell with a known rapist and murderer and refused to let him out.Until he was dead.
October 12 , 1999
Dear Dora :
It has come to my attention that Jerome White-Bey , # 37479 , who was housed at the Crossroads Correctional Center , and because of the brutality and mistreatment by your guards in administrative segregation , he was transferred to Jefferson City Correctional Center on September 8 , 1999.Upon arrival at JCCC , he was placed back in administrative segregation , and then was moved again on September 28 , 1999 to Potosi Correctional Center , where he is still in administrative segregation , and now you have upped the ante by saying that all of his possessions and legal documents have to be out of the prison by December 7 , 1999.Let me say that this is the worst kind of oppression , suppression , dehumanization , and racism that I have ever witnessed or heard since slavery.
As the chief jailer in charge , I want you to know that I am holding you responsible for the mistreatment of this inmate and I want you to personally understand that it is not your crazy guards , it is not your untrained , ignorant , incompetent staff that is the problem , you are the problem because you write slick letters by never answering any questions , trying to cover up their insanity like a cat in a litter box.
If my information is correct , and all of Mr. White-Bey's possessions must be out of the prison by December 7 , 1999 , I find this deplorable and disgusting because this young man has no family or living relatives at all , if the information I am receiving is correct.As a result of that , then I must assume that you also know that he has no family or living relatives to send his possessions to.
Enclosed is a previous letter that I wrote to you concerning Jerome White-Bey who is in administrative segregation/isolation/solitary confinement to keep him from organizing the inmates and Developing a prison's union.For almost a year he has been in solitary confinement at Crossroads , Jefferson City Correctional Center , and now he's in solitary confinement at Potosi , another nonviolent inmate , so my question is , are you using hindsight and logic.Wouldn't it have been better to put the rapist , the psychotic killer and murderer in solitary confinement rather than a religious man who is trying organize a union in the prisons with a grievance procedure to eliminate the kinds of killings like that of Shackrein Thomas # 342296.
I know the impression is that you have to be a cold , insensitive , uncaring , I don't give a damn what happens to inmates kind of person to work for the Department of Corrections , and I believe that is the only qualification or a litmus test.There is clearly no test for logic , concern for the well-being of the inmates , love , compassion , Christianity or Christian morals , and the reason I say this is because there is not one guard in Potosi who would have put his brother in the cell with this insane man who was in jail for rape and murder.It was reported to us that he murdered young children and then raped their dead bodies.If this is not the case , please inform me as to what is the case.
So the questions are why would you put inmate Shackrein Thomas in this cell , and why on the other hand , would you put Jerome White-Bey in isolation or solitary confinement rather than this schizophrenic murdering rapist.
I am sure you can rationalize this , but I want you to know that you will never rationalize this to me and the rest of the thinking legislators in this House and Senate and the general public.I believe in my heart that you are a major part of the problem now.In the past , I have been soft and supported you because I thought it was your staff that was the problem but clearly you are the problem because you are the head , and until the head is removed , the body will continue to do all of the inhuman , sinful , wicked , and unconscionable things that it is doing to the inmates.
Sincerely ,
