GA Inmate on Camera Being Beaten by a Hammer, Allegedly While Handcuffed

wowopposp

America has a serious problem with incarceration, even Attorney General Eric Holder agrees with that fact.  What’s also unspoken is the amount of abuse taken by prison inmates locked behind bars.  Facilities are accused of looking the other way as inmates are s*xually assaulted, tortured and beaten beyond recognition.

The San Francisco Bay View has released a distributing video of an inmate being beaten by guards with a hammer.

In the video, guards are heard shouting, “Get down! Just get down! Get down! Get down!” You then hear someone saying, “Oh (expletive) guy over there with his hands hitting him … and a damn hammer!”

The beatings took place on December 31, 2010 and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation has allegedly dragged its feet on getting to the bottom of what the incident.   Rev. Kenneth Glasgow is responsible for posting the video to Youtube for the world to see.

A relative who brought the injustice to the attention of the public says that “The Georgia Department of Corrections denies this happened but were caught on tape. The officer responsible was never arrested or reprimanded. The district attorney had the video and never sought charges.

“The family is demanding justice for this barbaric, inhumane act. We ask everyone to help by contacting District Attorney Tom Durden at (912) 876-4151.”

Rev. Glasgow goes deeper into the incident, noting that the Georgia Bureau of Investigations has proven itself to be corrupt by refusing to look into what happened here.

“Within the entire GBI (Georgia Bureau of Investigation) file,” says Rev. Glasgow, “no GBI investigative agent or prison official identifies the guard on the video who is clearly beating non-resisting Miguel Jackson and Kelvin Stevenson with the hammer-like object.

“If you look closely, you will see a very large man lying on top of Kelvin Stevenson as the other guard batters his head with the hammer. Eye witnesses state that Stevenson was also handcuffed at the time.

“For all those who watch this and ask what’s the whole story, first of all ask yourself why no GBI agent or prison official reported this – at least not in the ‘official report’ – when this is their video.  The family and advocates want justice and humane treatment, the situation investigated, and the officer in that video arrested.”

    There needs to be an extensive camera system throughout the prisons that feed directly to the U.S. Attorney. This way he has 24/7 surveillance of what goes on in these prisons. Those responsible should be imprisoned with the same people that they violate. This is why those that go into our criminal justice system come out almost as messed up. Then society has to foot the bill due to the crime rate.

    Unbelievable that this happens in this day and age. A lot of prison guards are nothing but bottom feeders–thugs with badges. Prisons are modern-day plantations.

    The criminal commits an act and goes to prison.
    The prison officials commit criminal acts and maintains the prisons.
    The Justice System is aware of the abuse and allows it to continue.
    The public helps to perpetuate this kind of violence if it says and
    does nothing.
