Department of Corrections: Article II (insider information)

Previously, we had covered a few aspects of the department of Corrections and their operations. You may read that article here. Today, we are going to be expanding on this. Furthermore, as our insider has been discovered by their former department, giving an update to that situation. The intention of this article is to provide more inside information provided by an individual who would know best-a former officer. As before, their identity is being withheld to, at bear minimum, protect them from those who may wish to target them online.

Smackdown happy

We see it often in videos, the police brutally assaulting a person when it isn’t needed. However, we don’t see how officers often get away with this. According to our insider, a lot of it boils down to the wording on their reports. One example we were given is as follows: “when an officer utilizes use-of-force, rather justified or not, they are usually coursed on how the report should reflect that. For instance, if an officer body slams an inmate to the floor, a common occurance, their report will state that they ‘assisted’ the inmate to the floor. They do this because any report written maybe subject for court use; the officer can get into legal trouble if they state they body slammed the offender.” According to our insider, this is the big part of the foundation to getting out of legal responsibility for any injuries.

In cases where the force wasn’t warranted, the department has a tendancy to “doctor” reports, the classic cover-up. While this is publically denounced by D.O.C. it is a normal occurance. Furthermore, if an offender attempts to defend themselves from this, they are slapped with additional charges. These charges may include assaulting an officer, which leads to a longer prison sentence.

When the officer uses force, it is very common for jokes to be made, at the offender’s expense. These people take great pride, from what our insider saw, in laying the “smackdown” on those who may not be able to fight back. “Officers will generally make jokes such as ‘damn, talk about a rag doll effect, sucks to be them, and so on,” according to the insider. Officers, in many ways, are expected to have this mentality. Failing to do so usually results in being made a target by those who outrank you.

The “blue” brotherhood

“During my stint in working for D.O.C., I met a captain who was hardcore about the brotherhood. In the end, because I refused to act like the rest, I questioned him, I was made a target,” according to the source. Cadets who enter the department, with the “brotherhood” mentality, often find a high paying career. According to our source, if you aren’t one of these new officers, you are harassed and bullied into resignation, this also applies to seasoned officers.

While working there, our insider informed us of some of the harassment endured because of their former captain. Pay check being withheld for a month, constantly being in his office for various, and even petty reasons, and at the time they resigned, for violating a policy that did not exist within the department. As we are told, the above mentioned are only a few examples.

We asked the officer, aside the harassment, what was the final straw? What lead you to resign? Their answer is as follows: “the final straw, for me, was the captain getting the warden involved. I was supposed to go to a meeting, regarding violating a non-existant policy, a meeting that I knew meant my termination. The captain had already fucked me out of my pay, which meant, since we were paid monthly, I would go two months without a check. I simply had enough of their bullshit games, the amount of control over my life, and how they used threats to make us do what they wanted, even if we felt it unethical.”

We went on to inquire about the policy, we asked what policy did they violate, exactly? “Honestly, as stupid as this sounds, I drove myself to another facility, to which I was required to be at. I didn’t have the money to get to my home facility so taking a state car wasn’t an option,” was the very quick response given. As we could tell, it appeared that our insider actually violated the “blue brotherhood” code in several ways.

As we can tell, and as generalized law enforcement has revealed, this is a career of being a thug. Those who are thugs last. On the other hand, if you opt out of this mentality, you are bullied into resignation or even terminated. If there is no “justified” means, they fabricate one. Their job, according to the insider, is to ensure inmates don’t break out of the prison, do what they are told when they are told, and to ensure the institution operates smoothly.

Isolation

A disturbing concept of prison comes in the form of the “segregated housing unit” (S.H.U.) the unit is essentially a jail within a prison. This unit is classified as a “maximum” security unit. What this means for inmates is: they are locked down 23hrs a day, aside from weekends. They get one hour on a secured yard, Monday-Friday only. If an inmate gets in trouble, they maybe sent to this unit pending investigation. The investigation can take upwards of 30 days to complete. However, this month is actually extended as weekends aren’t counted. This means that if an investigation takes the full thirty days, the inmate will actually be in this unit for approx. 45 days. It was further noted that our insider has, by first hand account, seen the mental deteriation of those locked down.

Synopsis of the information

From this, and our previous article, it is clear to see how this system is in shambles. A system that treats human beings worst than animals needs a complete overhaul. Worst yet, we are only about halfway through our notes. Should there be enough interest, we will happily do article III on this.

Officers laughing and joking about injuring people is appauling. Officers targeting their own, simply for wanting to do their jobs, is just as bad. We often ask ourselves, “why aren’t there any good officers?” These articles are demonstrating the answer, as provided by, first hand experience.

Whistle-blower update

Our insider has informed us that after releasing our previous article, there has been some rather suspicious activity around their house. Daily, in some cases several times a day, police cars have been witnessed slowing down in front of their home. In several instances, the cars have been observed coming to a complete stop, the officer watches the home for a few minutes, and proceeds to drive away. Furthermore, they have informed us that several “unmarked” cars have been seen doing this. We are told this is a common practice when officers, or former officers, begin whistle-blowing their department. This seems, if it is a common occurance, to be a form of fear tactic, in our opinion.

Corrections (Insider report)

Disclaimer:

This article was composed based on information provided to us. We will not reveal the source nor will we reveal the State to which the source worked. We are doing this for the protection of the individual legally as well as from those within the department who may not agree with this article. War on Corruption takes no responsibility for the information provided, we are merely sharing what was provided to us.

Introduction

In many ways correctional institutions are contraversial. Rather it be in how offenders are treated, the quality of life, or the occasional violence, these locations have, upon many occasions, sparked outrage. We often hear about how life is for those imprisoned within these institutions, but we rarely hear about those who are (or were) employed. We recently got a bit of insight into how this agency works, the behind the scenes if you will, into the life of the employees. For protective reasons, we have omitted the specific agency’s location as well as the former employee, the reasons will become abundantly clear throughout the article.

Life away from work

When working, it is expected to uphold the policies and guidelines of your employer. Failing to do so is usually met with some form of consequence, even termination of employment. However, this field is slightly different. For those who are employed, the policies appear to apply 24/7. Rather you are at home, at work, even on vacation you find yourself constantly having to “look over your shoulder.” One example that we were given, in regards to this, is Facebook. While it isn’t new for companies to speak to employees regarding posts, for this agency, your posts could be met with harsh consequences including termination.

Speaking ill of the agency is also forbidden. For example, if our contact were actively working for the “Department of Corrections,” they could be met with termination simply for speaking to us, it is to our best guest that whistleblower laws are completely obsolete for these employees. The agency is very “image” focused. Every expectation, on or off duty, that is held toward their employees, is primarily to ensure that this agency maintains a good public image.

Pay

Admittedly, from what we have seen, the average correctional officer does make good pay. So why mention this? Well, this is also a punishment that can be utilized against them. As it was explained to us, it is not unheard of for the Department to withold paychecks, forcing employees to go without for “X” amount of time, or until the next pay period. The typical solution for the employees, to which suffer this virtually inhumane form of control, is to go into debt with loans. Because the department can opt out of paying their employees at any given cycle, this means that they are forced to find alternative ways to make ends meet; for some, this means sneaking contraband into the facility for the offenders. Common reasons for this is even more bothersome: you get sick and your supervisor doesn’t approve the time off, you simply miss to many days, and so fourth. Regardless of the reasons why, it does leave questions into the legality of this consequence.

Keeping with the trend of loss pay, we go into another questionable act: Removing your pay. According to our insider, another “dirty” move that is often enacted is the deduction of your payroll from your bank account. According to the individual, this comes in a bit of a process, we will simplify it:

  1. Payroll is issued and deposited into your checking account.
  2. Employee uses money to pay bills, etc.
  3. Up to a week later, the account can suddenly go into a negative standing with the bank due to your check being withdrawn by the department.

Upon asking for the reasons why, we were informed that it is usually classified as an “overpayment.” With this, the insider informed us that they are actually salary based with the addition to getting overtime. This has left many questions regarding this action.

Staffing and Retaliation

The agency is always in a status of “hiring.” Given what we have composed thus far, I can’t fathom why. Nationally, the Department is critically understaffed, often only having one officer for each unit. Each unit could have 300+ offenders versing this one officer. “So why are they always hiring,” a question we had to ask.

“There are many reasons as to why the department is constantly hiring. If an officer angers the wrong person, usually a higher ranking individual, retaliation for this is not uncommon practice. But, aside from that, the field really isn’t for everybody, it really does require a specific personality type in order to truly thrive in such a negative environment,” was the response we got.

We inquired into the retaliation claim. The response, in essence, spoke of payroll (covered above,) frivilous write-ups, being treated in such a way that one is forced to resign, and so fourth. We inquired as to how common this occurs. According to our insider, this was very common practice. The department had a sort of shield in that the policies practically forbade employees from being able to publically speak out against the department, thus leaving them at their mercy.

Offender Treatment

Another concern that was brought up was regarding how “inmates” are treated. While some officers make a valiant effort, most treat them as though they were the “scum of the earth.” It was upon this note that the insider stated, “we have all made mistakes, we have all done s**t that wasn’t exactly legal. These people simply got caught. It is, to my core belief, that I treated all of them with respect so long as they returned that respect. When they failed to do so, I would attempt to calm the situation which usually meant actually speaking to the offender.”

Conclusion

There is much more we could go into. To do that, however, would require a novelette. While we have much more information, we will leave it to this for this article. For now, we can make a rather damning conclusion as to how these individuals are treated. Furthermore, we can even conclude that the State demands control of the personal lives of its employees, a disturbing concept at best. If requested, we may compose a secondary article into this subject. For now, we will simply leave it with this.

Secret “Congressional” meeting?

In the past, we have covered a group who allegedly scams families out of money. The families they often target are those fighting the CPS/DFS/DSS system. While this is already considered to be highly unethical, they appear to be completely oblivious to this. However, recently P4P’s (Punished 4 Protecting,) Francesca Amato-Banfield, David Jose, and a few others arranged a “congressional hearing.” According to the P4P team, they were going to be meeting with a few representatives of congress. During this time, they filmed a live video, which can be watched here.
This video brings up many questions. Among the questions:

1. Where are the representatives of Congress?
Notice, at no point during this video, are any of these alleged representatives seen. In fact, at no point do we ever actually hear them interact with the group in any form. If these representatives were truly there, wouldn’t they naturally be asking questions, or at minimum, conversating with the P4P team?
2.Where are the victims?
Now, these people had this “secret meeting” essentially on behalf of these CPS/DFS/DSS victims. So, with that in mind, where are the victims?

Francesca Amato-Banfield isn’t unfamiliar with being “exposed” online for her scams. Going onto YouTube, and even Google search, typing in her name will reveal videos, and articles, dating back to 2017. Another aspect of Amato that has, upon many occasions, concerned online advocates, is her past friendships with convicted pedophiles. You can find an article relating to this here. We could go deeper into this woman, however, we already have previous articles covering her and her affiliates.

The video, which was the alleged “congressional meeting,” is highly suspect. Not only have the online activists torn it apart, some of P4P’s own allies are beginning to question it. An actual attorney, Connie Reguli whom we have previously covered, came forward to “The Watchman’s” Randy Davis, and began discussing further questionable aspects of this meeting. The video, in its entirety, maybe watched here.

While the P4P team continues to make rather radical claims, none with actual documentation, it is apparent that people are beginning to see the pattern for what it is: A scam. On many occasions Francesca Amato has pushed for funding. Rather it be through her “self published” book, or with her controversial “consultations,” she exploits vulnerable families for all they are worth. Most of these families are unable to afford an attorney, they are desperate, looking for some form of hope. For a, what Amato claims to be a 501(c)3 (also proven to be false,) this truly brings a rather shady view toward her ethics. Regardless of your opinions of her, or the most recent video, we simply end this article with this: The evidence speaks for itself.

Sorry: 501c3 not found.

DISCLAIMER:

We have been hearing a lot of interesting things about a Francesca Amato. Now, before we really dig into this, I must say that nobody with WoC has ever heard of this woman prior to this article. All information provided is purely based on our observations, findings, and creditable source information. All source information was given anonymously. Their names will not be provided in this article, in email, or private messaging.

OBJECTIVE I

When we began this article, we were actually looking into P4P’s North Carolina chapter leader, Danielle Hatcher. We had heard rumors of corruption within the “501c3” and decided it was something worth looking into. Upon looking into Hatcher, we had stumbled across an image posted to Social Media. That image is below.

We found this to be rather interesting. Although we don’t know why she is currently in jail, a disturbing rumor has circulated regarding the advocate. The rumor states as follows:

At some point, while in jail, Ms. Hatcher took it upon herself to use feces as a method for “finger painting.”

As we stated, this is a rumor and is currently not proven. However, it was this rumor that lead us to look a little bit deeper. What is this organization that she helps manage?

OBJECTIVE II

We did a 501c3 check on P4P. The reason for this was because, according to the organization’s website, they had a 501c3 status. Well, we looked and we found nothing called, “Punished for Protecting,” “Punished for Parenting,” “Punished 4 Protecting,” or “Punished for Parenting.” To put this blatently, as far as we can tell, this 501c3 does not exist; but don’t they claim to be one?

Yes, yes they do.

We gave them a benefit of a doubt. Maybe they meant charity rather than 501c3. We conducted an identical search with the same results.

So if they aren’t found on New York’s list of charities or 501c3 organizations, what exactly are they? Well, I don’t think we need to state it but we know you can compose the conclusion. Since we couldn’t find it on any list, we decided to look into the founder.

OBJECTIVE III

Francesca Amato is the woman behind this “organization.” According to a Facebook page (depicted below,) she is running for NY governor. Well, we already found one issue, so we looked into that as well. What we found was equally as disturbing as the previous findings; there were no obtainable records that she is, or has, ever ran for a political position…and yet she makes the claim.

To be a politician, that means you have to actually be running, or are currently in office. When we checked into this, as previously mentioned, there were no obtainable records. The reason these records are unobtainable is purely because they do not exist.

But, as we also stated, she claims to be actively running. Now, we could point out other problems on this page, such as her using a gmail account rather than an actual account linked to her “political” website, but we decided to just briefly mention the one issue.

CONCLUSION

Based upon what we had seen and the evidence, as it stands. We are presently at the conclusion that her, the organization, and its leaders, are scamming desperate people out of their money. But, as it always stands within the WoC policy, should we find evidence that contradicts this information, we will happily revise this article.

Sources have, on seperate occasions, told us who she associates with. In fact, we have articles on several of them for corruption, etc. Currently, the only supporting evidence we have, is a video that Ms. Amato herself did. In the video, she makes mention of good people being slandered. It is, at this point, we briefly saw the profile of a person that we had deemed to be a very real danger to others. However, by all means, come to your own conclusions.

CPS: Trained to kill

image

As of the time of this article, not much is known regarding this case. What little information I currently have is tragic. A mother, whose boyfriend had injured her child, played the CPS game and lost. In some aspect, I can already hear people sayimg, “she pulled her trigger.” I disagree.

Losing a child is tough on families; losing four, even more so. A woman, who took the appropriate action, ended up getting shafted. The issue I have in this regard is merely the fact she had reached out to the system for assistance. Rather than helping, as it should have done, the system further victimized this young woman. What could she had done at this point?

She played into their blackmail, extortion, propaganda; she played their twisted idea of a game. Anybody who has dealt with CPS, DFS, etc., already knows that they push parents to their limit. For some parents, as in this case, CPS pushes them beyond their mental capacity. It is, with this in mind, a lot of parents snap.

Though, at this time, the young woman’s name is unknown to me, her loss was simply to much to bear. These stories of parents who commit suicide are always hard for me to ignore. I do not see suicide here. What I see is a Gestapo styled agency, destroying families, and pulling triggers on these parents. That’s right, I am boldy claiming them to be murderers!

You can only push a person for so long before they snap. What CPS does, based on evidence, is push families until they do snap. At that point, thwy claim the parents to be unfit, order them to get mental assessments, and begin repairing what they initially broke. While doing this, they extort and blackmail the families for hundreds, thousands, it does not matter to them. They use the love of the parents as a tool-a weapon against them. Want to know teue evil? CPS has shown it through this and many cases like this.

Missouri vs the tribal nation

As you know, Ferguson was recently in the media due to issues with racism. Have they reformed? No. This story is one of utter horror. It involves a family, who are on the tribal roll, CPS, and the corruption of law enforcement. This story is one that defies all logic, rationality, and law.

It started when Rosemary, mother of a 16 year old located innapropriate photos on a cell phone. A 20 year old Muhammad Cisse of St. Ann, Mo. picked the girl up to take her to a friends house. However, that is not where she ended up. Instead, he drove her to a fitness center across county lines, and then to his home. Once there, he held the young girl against her will, even upon being asked to go home. While imprisoned, her family drastically searched and eventually found her. Muhammad, the abducter, called the police for a “welfare” check. Keep in mind, this man, as shown below, clearly had sexual relations with this minor.

Screenshot_2015-10-17-23-20-3611

Perhaps she needed a welfare check against him.

20151024_010030

As if things could not get any worst, an official report, above, clearly confirms the abuse from Muhammad occured. To this day, against the familys’ wishes, the state has done nothing against these accusations. Instead, they removed the victim from her family, forcing her into isolation. Now, here is where more laws get disregarded.

The girl and her family are enrolled with an Indian tribe. What this means is, legally the state must turn the child over to the tribe. However, the state has willfully violated these laws.

20151024_01183520151024_011905IMG_20151111_003521

Above, is a legal notice from the tribe to the state. Within this letter, they confirm that not only is the family tribal, they notify the state of the various laws being broken; Senators are currently being involved by the tribe. Beyond this, the state has refused to release the child.

This is a case of complexity and corruption in its purest form. This shows just how far the CPS/ DFS is willing to go for a quick buck. There is much more I can comment regarding this, with photographic evidence. However, for now, I hope this basic analysis works.

Defending Freedom.

You hear it in propaganda almost on a daily basis. “Defend freedom, be a soldier.” I heard this phrase recently on the television and it got me thinking, “If they care so much about our troops, why are they always being shafted?” The double standard that I have noticed within our country, especially when it comes to our troops, is they glorify soldiers while cutting their benefits, sending them to wars that they should not be in, and then burning the families of the fallen. I don’t know about you, but I see this as something that is of great concern.

I remember growing up and hanging out with the old school vets. You know the ones in which I’m speaking of. They had this mentality of “you mess with me and I’ll rip every limb from their sockets.” Yeah, they were awesome. But I also recall them talking about how their benefits were being cut and how they couldn’t afford their medications, doctor bills, etc. At the time I didn’t understand what this meant. As I grew up, most of these men grew older and died. The thing that really pissed me off about this was how little the Government helped the families who couldn’t afford the burials; in my eyes, something was seriously fucked up with this.

I have wished for years the Government would make an advertisement that was a bit more accurate. In fact, I have the perfect script: “Become a soldier, fight for yours, and everybody else’s, country. die and be a hero but don’t expect us to help ya’ll out. Expect pay cuts as well as benefits cuts as we cannot manage money.” I dunno, think it’s a bit more accurate? I do.

The other thing that bothers me is the sight of a homeless vet. I recently went to Nebraska and had this honor of meeting some of these great men. One in specific has been fighting for his benefits for years; so far, the Government is giving him hell. I threw him what money I could, thanked him for his service, and continued with my business. However, this man never left my mind. He looked like something from Duck Dynasty with a long ragged beard and firm to heart religion, but it didn’t change the fact he had been shafted by the very nation he swore to serve. it’s as I said, ” something is seriously fucked up here.”

Say whaaaat?

Just when I thought the United States Government could not possibly piss me off anymore than what they already have, I learn about Russia. It seems like there is a lot going on in the global scale of politics. In Malasia, we have a missing 777 that seems to have vanished into the abyss, America has a President that seems to be proactive in destroying the Nation from the inside out, and now we have Russia wanting to Nuke us…. you know… blow us to Kingdom come.

The problem I have noticed with our country is we have a “Police the world” mentality. As a result of this, we get involved with affairs that have no bearing on our Nation; in fact, it isn’t even a security issue to us. Now, as most of you may already be aware, Kerry gave Russia a specific time frame to flee Kuwait. Now, I have been saying for years that eventually the United States will get involved in the wrong situation and we will be wiped from the Earth… Just a theory right? Well, Russia has replied to the demand by stating they will turn the United States into a “Nuclear ashland.” Now, doesn’t that just make you feel all bubbly inside?┬áIt is, to my best guess, that WWIII will eventually happen. In reality, you cannot just mettle in foreign affairs, piss off other countries, and not expect retaliation for it; hence, why I am an activist. We, activists, tend to have a bad image with those who follow every word the Government tells them. “Terrorists, threat to National Security” being among the names we are called. In reality, I feel that we are the only thing that will save this falling Nation… Assuming we aren’t blown to bits by Russia first.

Leave your comments and thoughts and as always: “Join the Revolution.”

More thoughts…

As somebody who is proactive in the realm of politics, it isn’t uncommon that I see some rather horrifying stories. When The Patriot Act came around, I thought I would have to smack myself to see if I was dreaming; sadly that was just the start of the end for America. The act was supposed to tighten national Security with the intention of 9/11 being avoided in the future. the problem with this, however, it came with a hefty price: your freedom.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patriot_Act

To my Amazement, the destruction of our Freedoms didn’t just stop there. I saw the birth of the Homeland Security and the TSA. Almost immediately I saw the damage they were doing. People at Airports were being pulled into backrooms and stripped searched for no apparent reason; to my understanding, this should have been a violation of the Constitution. However, Bush had found a way to justify it.

I saw the election of Obama and knew things would only get worst. I warned everybody I knew of the impending doom to come. “No, no, I think he’ll be a better President,” they said.

So far I have seen the DREAM Act passed which gives immunity to specific immigrants who are at risk of being deported. I have seen Obamacare, which is much more than just “healthcare.” I encourage that anybody who reads this do some research into that one.

Worst case scenario happened when we all saw Obama vow to act without the use of Congress. In America, this was an act that was simply unheard of… This was the beginning stages of a Dictatorship. With or without Congress, Obama would get gun control laws passed as a perfect example. “I need some proof.” I can hear those words coming out of your mouth even now. Good news, I have the article… enjoy.

http://www.infowars.com/obama-promises-to-enact-gun-control-laws-with-or-without-congress/

The point to this writing is this: As Americans, we have a duty to defend our nation from both, domestic and foreign, threats. From my stance, Obama is a domestic threat to our Nation with an approval rating at approx. 38% (Last I had checked anyways.) The sad part is I haven’t seen much action from the people. I don’t see petitions being signed… I don’t see another Boston Tea Party. These are my thoughts for the day.

Peace.

United we failed…

For many years, I have taken a personal interest in Politics. Everyday it seems the corrupted are growing more powerful and the citizens are becoming a weakened force. One day, many years ago, I recall asking myself, “What role can I take to fight this corruption?” after a few days, I had my answer; I would become an activist. My agenda is to expose Child Protective Services, the police, Congress, and so fourth for what they truly are. However, because activists seem to only recently come out of the wood work, I sometimes wonder if it is to late. Even so, I fight for a belief I strongly uphold. Soon, I will be posting your rights and encourage you to share this blog with everybody you know. Until next time.Image
