JOHN ASHCROFT AND KATHLEEN SAWYER ARE TRYING TO MURDER MY DAD!!! YOU CAN
>>HELP SAVE HIS LIFE!!!
>>Dear Comrades, Friends and lovers' of liberty,
>> My father, U.S. political prisoner Richard Williams (10377-016 at
>> U.S.P. Lompoc) has been singled out by attorny general John Ashcroft and
>> Kathleen Sayyer of the federal bureau of prisons, to die of the heart
>> disease "Ventricular Fibrillation". Richard is being held in absolute
>> segregation at U.S.P. Lompoc, and is being denied adequate medical
>> treatment and excersize. We need your help!
>>Richard has not violated a single prison regulation/rule in years, yet he
>>has spent 7 of the last 9 months in solitary and segregated confinement.
>>He suffers from "Ventricular Fibrillation"; as a result, he had a heart
>>attack earlier this year and experiences constant problems with his legs.
>>(If you haven't heard already, or would like more information on the
>>conditions of his imprisonment since Sept. '01 -,please write me: Netdahe
>>Williams, PO Box 160, Johnson, VT 05656). Prison and government officials
>>deny that his specific and torturous treatment are retaliation for the
>>political nature of crimes committed 20 years ago, but theygive NO OTHER
>>EXPLAINATION in its stead. Please demand an explanation - Richard
>>Williams' life depends on it!
>>Richard is only allowed out of his single cell when he is shackled, and
>>accompanied by two guards and a lieutenant. So what happens in the event
>>of a medical emergency, like another heart attack? What happens if a
>>lieutenant is not, or chooses not, to be available to bring Richard to
>>the prison's medical facilities? We have been told they will "figure
>>something out". Here is what that "something" is:
>>On Friday June 21, 2002 Richard experienced pain in his limbs,
>>symptomatic of a coming heart attack. A prison doctor was sent to his
>>cell; without examining, or even touching, Richard, the doctor left
>>saying he was fine. Richard was then informed of a new prison rule
>>whereby he must fill out a new form in order to see the doctor again. The
>>pain persisted and he filled out the form Sunday June 23. No doctor came.
>>The pains persisted and on Monday June 24 when Richard requested another
>>form, he was told "they had run out of forms". I spoke with my fatheR
>>that Monday evening by phone, and he had still not been examined by a
>>Again, Richard has not committed any act of violence in 10 years at
>>U.S.P. Lompoc, yet since the Fall of last year he has been deemed too
>>high a security risk to be imprisoned with the rest of the prison's
>>population. He is somehow too high a security risk to be allowed a full
>>visit with his children! And he is apparently too high a security risk to
>>be afforded medical treatment for a heart condition that is cap~ble of
>>taking his life!
>>John Ashcroft and Kathleen Sawyer don't give a shit about you or me
>>individually, but they are afraid of us as a whole. We can, with our
>>combined voices, force them to take baby-steps toward humanity. That's
>>why I'm writing you this letter. This is a call to action! Please help
>>save Richard Williams' life! Please pick up a pen and demand that Richard
>>be put back in general population. Ask some questions, and demand that
>>Richard receive proper medical treatment. Put this letter in your local
>>paper; get your family doctor to ask folks in D.C. what's going on - and
>>then go tell a friend! My most sincere thanks goes out to you for caring
>>about my father's life, and consequently your own. After all, with the
>>government's war on civil liberties -we are all next on Ashcroft's list!
>>Stick together, Struggle together! AMANDLA! ! !
