The Abolitionist’s Daily News-
Three former guards at New York’s infamous Attica Correctional Facility are in the very rare situation of actually facing criminal charges in the brutal 2011 beating of George WIlliams. Criminal indictments were brought against Attica guards Sgt. Sean Warner, Officer Keith Swack and Officer Matthew Rademacher. They were arraigned in State Supreme Court in Wyoming County on charges of first-degree gang assault, a law commonly used to help tame common street gangs like the Crips, Bloods or Latin Kings- but in this case aptly applied to the gang of prison plantation overseers that beat George Williams so badly, he survived with broken ribs, both legs broken, a broken shoulder and fractured eye socket. Their charge carries a minimum sentence of eight and one-third years in prison and a maximum of 25 years. Additional felony counts accused the officers of filing false reports and tampering with evidence. It was the first time, state officials said, that criminal charges had been brought against corrections officers for a nonsexual assault on an inmate.

The prison industry complex is one of the fastest-growing industries in the United States and its investors are on Wall Street. This multimillion-dollar industry has its own trade exhibitions, conventions, websites, and mail-order/Internet catalogs. It also has direct advertising campaigns, architecture companies, construction companies, investment houses on Wall Street, plumbing supply companies, food supply companies, armed security, and padded cells in a large variety of colors, and we’ll take you inside this word. The evidence of financial incentives to further incarcerate and enslave people here in America is bold and in our faces. The Abolitionist’s Daily will not turn away.
In the United States there are now more than three times more seriously mentally ill persons in jails and prisons than in hospitals. Looked at by individual states, in North Dakota there are approximately an equal number of mentally ill persons in jails and prisons compared to hospitals. By contrast, Arizona and Nevada have almost ten times more mentally ill persons in jails and prisons than in hospitals. It is thus fact, not hyperbole, that America’s jails and prisons have become our new mental hospitals.
