Terry Walker - Racism is Ignoracism?
Mary Ellen Digiacomo
I Received a Letter today about my son. From an inmate who is at the same prison. He said it was a gross display of cruel and unusual punishment.The severe isolation, lack of Medical Care and just straight abuse from prison staff. He said my son Nikko is Unresponsive, Staring at Walls, Drooling from his Mouth. He has Stopped eating. What the Hell have they done to my son? Nikko Albanese is Deteriorating in Solitary confinement.For the passed 4 years in Solitary confinement Due to retaliation. I filed a complaint against the sergeant for not doing his job.I was told by that Sergeant that I had made a mistake. A very big mistake. And that I would never see my son alive again. Florida Prisons are notorious for murdering inmates as if they have no life value. Time after time it's an unpunished crime. They're murdering my son a slow painful death.
Before Solitary confinement, Nikko was engaging, quick wit, funny and a bit of a smart ass. Nikko has a high IQ is very intelligent. Well mannered well spoken and very handsome. Now Nikko has been found in a catatonic state three times. Has been misdiagnosed with schizophrenia and given the wrong extremely dangerous medication. Completely isolated from mother and family three years. Absolutely no physical contact of any kind. I'm not allowed to give my child a hug or even touch his arm. If he is out of his Cell Nikko is completely shackled. 3 guards must escort him. Well hold him up. The ankle shackles dig into his flesh making every step extremely painful. This is the third time Nikko has been unresponsive and stopped eating. obviously he is deteriorating from the severe isolation it is difficult for him to stand much less walk. The shackles and the three guards are a bit of an Overkill.. . I have witness my own child Unresponsive Staring at Walls Drooling from his Mouth and unable to make eye contact with his own mother. The State of Florida has forbidden me to comfort my son who is so cruelly suffering with a hug.
He has lived in a dark 6x9 cell for the past 4 years. He has gone years without seeing the light of day. Unable to visit with his own sisters for the past 4 years. Christmas time I'm not allowed to send him a pre-approved Christmas package.He is aloud 4 books ,5 pictures no TV no radio. No clothes, socks, underwear or sneakers. Only prison issue plastic slide shoes, prison issued pants and top with holes. Hospital scrubs. he is issued a sweatshirt for a few months of the year. The guards are not even allowed to speak to him. Absolutely no physical contact of any kind. I'm not. When I visit Nikko. It is on death row.
No. Nikko is NOT violent. No one was injured in his crime.
So how is this possible? How can the State of Florida get away with murder?
Matthew Walker, Randall Jordan-Aparo , Jerry Washington, Latandra Ellington, Darren Rainey just to name a few. They all died in a Florida prison at the hands of guards in the most unjust ways imaginable. Most of the guards didn't even lose their job.
"In testimony before the Senate Criminal Justice Committee, the inspectors cited cases where they were told to withhold information from prosecutors, to close investigations into staffers who were politically connected and to avoid bringing criminal charges no matter how much evidence they had."
My son is dying in a Florida prison cell...... because I filed a complaint against Florida prison guard.
