A young Black Man was injured while in the care of the justice system. This young man was MY SON. Through the pain of this incident we requested an investigation from DOC with a fine tooth comb, leaving no stones unturned. The response we received was a resounding we too want answers. If there was a thorough investigation the officer or in this case officers that are being paid to take the contraband into prisons would not be still employed and the results would not be closed with NO evidence of Foul Play. If a mother and sister in the state of Texas were charged with Felonies for simply buying minutes to use in the cellphone would it not be safe to assume in a "just" society that the correctional officers would be held in a higher standing and be more severely punished? As doctors take an oath to do no harm it would stand to reason that officers take an oath to promote justice. When researching I found only one case although there may be others of an officer receiving any incarceration. I am not fluent in the law or punishment under the law but buying minutes is a felony punishable by What I'm sure to be more than 8 days of incarceration or the request for resignation by guards. Right is Right and Wrong is Wrong. I have heard the quote you do the crime you do the time for a number of years does that only apply to lay people. In the Toney case the young black brother was lynched to silence his knowledge and in the reports for DOC they focused more on the defamation of his character than how and why he wound up in critical condition. With officers allowed to continue their acts of malicious greed onto members or the corrections population and their families. Leon and his family supported the Nation of Islam for many years, he sponsored the Ramadan feast in Walla Walla and now this act is being blanketed under the title of Prison Business and Gang Involvement. This Prison Business and Gang involvement has now been used as a catalyst for the proposed stress that Leon was under. The investigations have led to the denial of the families request for his Noble Qur'an and religious items as well as any things that show strength or good character. While researching other cases of this nature it has come to my attention that in all cases the inmate or the family of said inmates are held at fault and the means of distribution being guards are being given taps on the hands. The nature of cover up in our case is so severe for example there is surveillance footage that is missing, timestamps that are altered, the means of harm is changed, the item that he allegedly attempted to end his life on has changed since we have questioned the dimensions of said items, and the improbability that the situation could have occurred as stated given the information we were provided by DOC. The family received a hand delivered letter from an inmate newly released states that the heard a big, muscular, white guard state yes lieutenant I understand as if to show plans were being made to cover this incident up. There are inmates willing to take lie detector tests about the information that they have without regard to their freedom or safety. There are even GUARDS who had person dealings with Leon that assured us in this time of crisis that the things we know about Leon's Strength of Mind, Good Character, Hardworking Nature, Zest for Life and Plans of a Future were true thus showing there was FOUL PLAY. The issues that make our skin crawl stem from the fact that the illegal cellphones although contraband were the means that saved his life. We received information that things were not as they should be from inmates and not doc officials. When contacting Doc the day of the incident we were told that they had no knowledge of any issues with Leon, when asked if inmates were to be transferred would DOC know immediately the answer was a resounding yes. The desire to keep this story alive stems form the fear we have of retaliation on other inmates by the guards at McNeil Island and the officials of DOC should they be moved elsewhere stemming from the knowledge that they provided information to the family about this crisis. We are well aware of the risk they took to do a noble act and are EXTREMELY grateful to them and keep them in our prayers for their safety. It is our fear that when call logs are examined and any phone numbers of confiscated cell phone show our contact information their lives or freedom could be in jeopardy. There is a daily fear that this is not over. We live now in constant fear that any complications that Leon incurs are retaliation. We live in a state of constant mistrust and overprotection for we know not who is to be trusted and who we must watch carefully. Our Black King is fortunate to have a strong band of Nubian Queen Warriors standing by his side, Mother, Daughters, Wife, Sisters, Nieces, Aunts, Cousins, and Friends standing POWERFULLY, BOLDLY, RIGHTEOUSLY and Armed with the power of PRAYER directly on the front line to spearhead Leon in regaining his knowledge, talent and strength. We ask for spiritual protection and blessings. We ask that each of you call on the source of your healing and help by whatever name you use to grant special healing and a veil of protection over Leon. The power of Prayer is AWESOME. That's The Way It IS. Much respect to the Queen Assata Shakur.
