Support blog for the 6 prisoners who, when they were locked up in SCI Dallas, PA, protested in a nonviolent way against Human Rights Abuses in 2010, by covering their windows. They stand accused of something they did not do, yet Human Rights of prisoners at SCI Dallas (and in other Solitary Confinement units in PA) are still being violated on a daily basis.
We say: Drop the charges against the "Dallas 6"...
Stop Human Rights Abuses, Stop Torture and Stop Racism!
To control a person's thinking is to control his or her destiny. In prison the only thing we have left is our minds. Therefore, it it necessary to keep a strong mind and resist cultural genocide at all costs. ~Carrington Key
Mr. Carrington Keys is an inmate in Pennsylvania Department of Corrections (PA DOC), where he had to fight for his human rights and civil rights. He has spent his time educating himself in hopes that when he returns to society he can become a productive member of it. He completed programs in order to better himself. Currently, he has written many short books on business, politics and prisoner struggles. Only one is available for sale at this time. Purchase his booklet "The Price Men Pay for Standing Up to the Injustice System"
Mr. Keys is only one of many inmates in the state of PA that are
being subjected to extreme acts of bigotry and torture. This site is not to ask
for sympathy for prisoners, but to expose the discrimination and violence that
inmates are subjected to at the hands of corrupt and racist Corrections
Officers (CO). The PA DOC is willfully and knowingly condoning acts of violence
and excessive abuse of power. African Americans (and other minorities) are not
being allowed to do their time, complete programs and come home because of this
Instead of receiving rehabilitation they are constantly called
niggers and threatened, beaten and having spit and other foreign objects such
as glass put in their food. When they complain or file reports against the COs,
they are retaliated against with bogus write-ups, starvation, tampering with
mail and attacks. Some inmates chose the legal route because there is no
justice in the grievance system because the PA DOC investigative process
involves an inside investigation which is definitely not going to be impartial.
Anyone going this route is most likely subjected to a search and theft of any
legal documents that may assist in the case against the PA DOC. At times, legal
documents from the courts are not received by the inmates due to mail tampering
which is a federal offense.
This same story has been heard over and over by again many
prisoners. This is not a single incident. In fact, it is such actions that have
caused overcrowding in the system. Prisoners cannot get paroled because they
have bogus misconduct against them. Prisoners cannot get into programs which
lead to parole because they have bogus misconducts. Prisoners are being placed
in control units for extended periods of time, where they receive further misconducts
and abuse. Most prisoners in the RHU remain there for the duration of their
sentence. They are not given a chance for any advancement under this treatment
plan. This is the modern day torture chamber where most of the starvation,
physical and mental abuse in the PA DOC occurs. More than a few prisoners have
died or committed suicide under these conditions.
Instead of being prepared for a return to society, Carrington and
others are being treated worse than animals, some because of the color of their
skin. Many people still hold the same racist beliefs as in slavery time. There
is no need for Klan members to hide behind sheets anymore, they can get a job
with the PA DOC and conduct terrorist acts at taxpayer expense and nobody’s
going to say a word. Inmates don’t want your sympathy.
Carrington wants to do his time, complete programs and education
and return to society as a changed man. Under the present inhumane, racist
system, he and others will continue to be held longer and subjected to violence
and bogus write-ups. All guards and staff involved in perpetrating these
illegal acts and the administration which condones the acts, should be held
He is currently out of solitary confinement and free from
