Enhanced Interrogations continue in America: prisoners were beaten after pair escaped

By Christopher Rice

I was thinking about the last Iraq invasion. Was it because Saddam supposedly had weapons of mass destruction? Or because he gassed the Kurds for trying to overthrow his government or was it because he was selling oil on the black market? Well, whatever bullshit they fed you, it worked and they laughed all the way to the bank. I, know what does this have to do with this article, right? Well, wouldn't it be nice if some country were to invade us and hang our president? After, a televised trial, of course. Haven't the people of this country suffered enough? I guess we have to wait till they start gassing us. Until then we'll all have to suffer because that shit they did at Abu Ghraib happens every day in America. Cops have tortured thousands of American citizens on American soil. Beat confessions out of the innocent and beat others to death. Here's the latest:

Prisoners' Legal Services of New York has received several complaints from inmates on that Clinton Correctional Facility honor block, who were later moved to other prisons, managing attorney James Bogin said Tuesday. Many were transferred and spent time in solitary confinement and some are still missing their clothes and other belongings, he said.

"People were beat up," Bogin said. "People lost property."

A 23-day manhunt by more than 1,100 law enforcement officers followed the June 6 escape of murderers Richard Matt and David Sweat. Matt was fatally shot June 27 about 30 miles from the prison. Sweat was shot and recaptured nearby two days later.

The New York Times first reported the prisoner accounts of beatings, noting 60 inmate complaints filed with the legal services group.

Patrick Alexander, who occupied a cell adjoining Matt's, told the Times he was handcuffed the night after the escape, taken by three guards into a broom closet, punched and had a plastic bag placed over his head while questions were shouted at him. One guard had the initials CIU on his jacket, he said. That stands for Crisis Intervention Unit in New York's prison system.

"The officer jumps up and grabs me by my throat, lifts me out of the chair, slams my head into the pipe along the wall," Alexander told the newspaper. "Then he starts punching me in the face. The other two get up and start hitting me also in the ribs and stomach."
