More potentially effective, informal Florida DOC death warrants

Florida DOC appends the all-caps admonition WE NEVER WALK ALONE to their emails, which seems rather confrontational in communicating with those that pay their wages. It ceased annoying me when I realized that their slogan is shared by inmates …

Dear Ms. Plessinger:

I am writing to correct a misunderstanding.

Gary was not made to eat lunch in the rain along with the others that were.  Despite all his personal strife and his physical fragility, Gary put himself out on a limb by speaking up for his fellow inmates, which verifies my statement that inmates never walk alone.

Please let me know as soon as possible that measures are being taken to protect inmates (and corrections officers who respect their responsibilities) from officers who are abuse their authority.  Thank you.

Sincerely,

Susan Chandler

Dear Ms. Plessinger:

I am writing in response to having Gary’s family inform me that the fans were turned off in his dorm and that he and others were made to eat a meal outside while it was raining.

Please see to it that personnel are instructed in preventing and recognizing often-fatal heat stroke, and eliminate personnel that know its hazards and remain prone to precipitating it.

Please see to it that personnel understand that it isn’t uncommon for a gentle Florida rain to suddenly produce lightening, and eliminate personnel that already are aware of that hazard and remain prone to taunting inmates with unnecessarily extended exposure.

And please stop making me write “please,” ma’am; Gary is enduring public misconduct that tops that of Wilton Dedge and William Dillon’s related exonerations in the same judicial circuit.  Unlike the other two gentlemen, Gary’s volatile epilepsy makes deliberate duress a life-threat.

Because it has taken 27.5 years to even get a slim shot at righting Gary’s wrongful conviction, his family has been pushed to the limits of their endurance, emotionally and financially.

The all-cap slogan appended to Florida DOC emailed correspondence – WE NEVER WALK ALONE – is every inmates’ slogan, too:  They have each other; they have their friends and family; they have advocates they’ll never meet … worldwide.  We don’t expect corrections employees to act like hoteliers, but we insist that they be sane and humane … those that aren’t endanger their fellow corrections officers along with inmates.

Sincerely,

Susan Chandler
