Waupun: “It is known that inmates are doing self-harm on a constant basis…” [1/20/18]

Excerpt from letter by prisoner at Waupun, sent 1/20/18:

“It is known that inmates are doing self-harm on a constant basis, either they are being allowed to run head first into doors, walls or jump off sinks, while the officers say, you are playing…They have had this inmate in a full body suit for months now & he’s handcuffed at the wrist, this man has to eat, shit & drink in front of the officers.” 

 

Conditions in the Wisconsin prison system need to change.
