What is People Against Prison Abuse?
People Against Prison Abuse is an Inmate & Family organization that was formed in 1994. PAPA attempts to provide quality help and assistance for the FAMILIES and FRIENDS of the MEN, WOMEN, and CHILDREN who are presently incarcerated in PRISON Facilities and/or released on PAROLE/PROBATION.
What is PEOPLE AGAINST PRISON ABUSE really about?
PAPA is primarily concerned with one thing “AWARENESS”!. If we can create a greater “AWARENESS” among the general populace as to exactly what is occurring within the confines of our PRISON SYSTEMS then Positive Reform will not have to be a
but rather a
as a result of this “AWARENESS”. Most of the Families and Friends of Inmates have a greater than average “AWARENESS” of what is happening within the AMERICA’S INDUSTRIAL PRISON COMPLEX. People Against Prison Abuse is certain that if we can disseminate this knowledge amongst the CITIZENS (aka Taxpayers and Voters) of The United States of America that great strides will be made.
Exactly what “AWARENESS” are we talking about?
The primary “AWARENESS” we wish to achieve is “that THE SYSTEM simply does “NOT” work in the majority of cases!”
Recidivism is at an “ALL” time high!
The attitude of the PRISON INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX is “CONTAINMENT” at the lowest possible cost!
Rehabilitation is “NOT” a foremost consideration!
Non-Violent criminals are receiving “LONGER” mandatory sentences than Rapist and Murders!
Recidivism in our country, as well as our states, are the “HIGHEST” in the world. Why can’t our Prison Systems take an honest look at themselves? If enough of us could offer a more positive approach to REHABILITATION, then perhaps our “ELECTED OFFICIALS” would implement the Legislation of The United States to produce positive changes.
It “STARTS” with us though!
What other concerns are we trying to bring?
Although TAXPAYERS over the past several years have spent more on PRISON INMATES than PUBLIC EDUCATION, the Inmates are not afforded:
Decent (not even good) MEDICAL CARE is a luxury!
OVERCROWDING is not only ignored but has become the NORM!
The MENTALLY ILL do not receive Proper Care and are ABUSED because they have problems that the guards have “NOT” been trained to deal with (??????when were the prison system created to house the MENTALLY ILL??????when the taxpayers dollars $$$$$$$ went to build Prisons instead of building and maintaining the STATE HOSPITALS!)
The Physically Challenged Inmates do “NOT” have the Medical Care, Equipment, and/or Facilities to enable them to be a functional HUMAN inside the Prison System!
Inmates with sickness, injuries, mental problems, physical problems are majority of the time “RETALIATED” against because they require extra care!
A vast number of the Industrial Prison Complex Staff (wardens,guards,medical staff), COMMIT WORST CRIMES more often, than what the majority of Inmate’s who are incarcerated for lesser crimes
The abuse perpetrated on the Inmates by the Staff Members at the Industrial Prison Complexes are at an “ALL” time high
The Staff Members are “Under-Trained” to deal with the majority of the responsibilities that come with their jobs
HIV, HCV, AIDS, Hepatitis, TB, Staph (MSRA), are “EPIDEMIC” in the prison facilities
“RAPE” has become an acceptable process of being in prison
“GANGS” run the prison units, “NOT” the paid employees of the Industrial Prison Complexes, Staff Members, people paid with TAXPAYERS TAX DOLLARS$$$$$$”
“DRUGS” “TOBACCO” and “CELL PHONES” are more available in the prison system than on the streets
Industrial Prison Complex Staff employees “RETALIATE” against employees (their co-workers) if they refuse to help “COVER UP” the wrong of the guards on duty
TaxPayers, Citizens of The United States of America , Voters in All States, have billions $$$$$$ of their tax dollars $$$$$$ being allotted to prison cost that does not go to benefit the Prisons Facilities, Staff, or the Inmates in the Prison System
THE MAJORITY OF THE ELECTED OFFICIALS (POLITICIANS) of THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA CHOOSE to IGNORE THE CRISIS of THIS MONSTER called AMERICA’S INDUSTRIAL PRISON COMPLEX. It is time for the CITIZENS of THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, who are the VOTERS (this means YOU) in all STATES, to give the POLITICIANS/LEGISLATORS a “WAKE UP CALL” THAT WE ARE NO LONGER WILLING TO ACCEPT THIS UNACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR FROM THEM OR ANYONE ELSE anymore. WE are challenging the Legislators of The United States of America to see that “CHANGES BE DONE IMMEDIATELY” “NOT” TOMORROW OR THE NEXT DAY, BUT TODAY! “WE” the TAXPAYERS have billions $$$$$$ of “OUR” TAX DOLLARS $$$$$$ being allotted to PRISON COST that does “NOT” go to benefit the PRISONS and certainly “NOT to OUR LOVE ONES” known as the Inmates/Offenders/Convict/Prisoners by the Criminal Justice System but known as “THE SCUM BAGS” and/or “THUGS” by those State paid Employees that work on the inside. The State Employees consider the Love Ones of Inmates to also be Scum Bags and Thugs, which they refer to the Inmates’ family as such to the Inmates at every chance they have to continually verbally and emotionally abuse the Inmates. The majority of the INMATES/OFFENDERS are NON-VIOLENT, MENTALLY ILL, PHYSICALLY DISABLED or OF A DIFFERENT RACE (why you ask, because they are the undesirables of our society and communities) and are being held as “SLAVES” in the prison system. Another fact is that the AMERICA INDUSTRIAL PRISON COMPLEX is a sad but at the same time a laughable joking matter all over this GREAT UNITED STATES of AMERICA (ask yourself why?) Love-Ones of Prisoners “DON’T” appreciate being the “butt” of the jokes because the majority work hard for their money like the majority of all the other CITIZENS. Citizens want their dollars to go for things they can be proud to have their name attached to ……?????? Don’t YOU ?????????…… YES, many are DISAPPOINTED IN LAWMAKERS while at the same time PROUD THAT THEY HEARD THEIR “WAKE UP CALL” To help EXPOSE THE REAL TRUTHS OF WHAT REALLY GOES ON IN THE “PRISON SYSTEMS” ACROSS THIS COUNTRY THAT STANDS on the well known words,
FOR FREEDOM, LIBERTY, JUSTICE FOR “ALL”
OH MY! WHAT A LIE WE HAVE BOUGHT INTO FOR SURE! Are you READY to make the CHANGE? If so, be sure you are ready to learn about the candiates running for office within our Legislative Body of U.S.A., States, Local Governments. Find out what their stand is concerning the AMERICA INDUSTRIAL PRISON COMPLEX SYSTEM, if you don’t like what they say, “VOTE THEM OUT” your chance is right around the corner”. REFORM or hit the DOOR! (PAPA’s Disclaimer: PAPA stands on the Constitutional “FREEDOM of SPEECH” rights given to ALL by The Constitution of the United States of America, to express an opinion.)
The AMERICA INDUSTRIAL PRISON COMPLEX IN ALL STATES does “NOT” afford the prison guards quality training (physically or emotionally) to handle the daily problems inside of the prison walls. Prison guards decay each day from their concerns of increased pay benefits, and personal safety, not what they can do to help improve the prison systems. Quality training for prison staff would be beneficial to our Love-Ones, the Inmates of THE AMERICA INDUSTRIAL PRISON COMPLEXES and the future Citizens of our communities.
What can be done?
Criminal Activity should “not” be tolerated, but neither should it be perpetrated by a system that forces Inmates to view a criminal life as their only alternative.
The people of THE AMERICA INDUSTRIAL PRISON COMPLEX “MUST” come to realize that they possess the tools to mold Inmates into positive Citizens who choose not to return to prison. The Staff Members must learn that their job is not just to oversee the incarceration of our Loved Ones but to offer positive enforcement of rehabilitation to the Inmates and quality professional training, safety and pay for the guards.
That is why it is necessary for each of us Citizens-In-Action aka CIA to stay current with injustices that are transpiring in the judicial systems (courtrooms) and the prison systems and not hesitate to write or call our “ELECTED LEGISLATORS” (that you, The Constitutional PEOPLE-CITIZENS-TAXPAYERS VOTED into office to take responsibility to do a JOB according to the demands of the CITIZEN VOTERS) about not only what is wrong, but what might be done about the issues and problems connected to the Criminal Justice System, Dentention Centers, Jails, Prisons, Attorneys, Judges,Law Enforcers, and Jurors.
The anagrams that we keep in the forefront is to remind us what “OUR MISSIONS” are. PAPA and CIA which stand for People Against Prison Abuse,Citizens-In-Action. Destiny 101 is the Lord’s umbrella covering for opening the Doors of Hope and Opportunity for the Inmates of The Industrial Prison Complexes in the United States of America. Encouragement, hope, faith, strength, grief, emotional issues can be discussed, prayed about, at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Please join us today in “OUR MISSION” and “OUR GOAL” to increase public “AWARENESS” of these issues and problems.
Do YOU, The CITIZENS, TAXPAYERS, VOTERS, desire to watch as your MULTI-BILLIONS of tax dollars $$$$$$ spent to
REHABILITATE or DE-HUMANIZE
HUMANS IN or ANIMALS OUT
IT is “YOUR” decision by what “YOU” choose to do TODAY, TOMORROW, and FOREVER about this MAJOR CONCERN in THE UNITED STATES of AMERICA (and ALL States) in this GREAT COUNTRY of THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! THE LAND BUILT on the foundations of FREEDOMS, LIBERTIES, PURSUIT of HAPPINESS
WHAT IS YOUR CHOICE GOING TO BE?
