Call the Warden for Tom Manning

tom!From The Jericho Movement

Please CALL OR FAX the warden at Butner Federal Medical Facility Phone: 919-575-3900 Fax: 919-575-4801 asking that Tom Manning be given a shoulder replacement and the necessary physical therapy to enable him to walk again.

Tom Manning has been imprisoned 28 years. He is currently serving a 53 year federal sentence for a series of bombing carried out by the United Freedom Front in the 1980’s. The bombings targeted properties of the U.S. military and corporations because of  their complicity in waging wars in Central America and collaboration with apartheid South Africa.

After completing his current sentence Tom must begin a life sentence in New Jersey for felony murder of a state trooper. Although acquitted of intentional murder, Tom was convicted for leaving the scene following a shootout between the trooper and Tom’s conrade Richard Williams. (Think: Assata Shakur) Richard died in prison following a long period of medical neglect by the Federal Bureau of Prisons. We do not want this to happen to Tom.

In April, 2010 the Bureau of Prisons ignored a deadly infection in Tom’s knee until an outside doctor intervened and Tom was hospitalized. He spent the next 5 weeks chained to a bed as bone and infection were removed from his knee. After the operation he couldn’t walk. Three years later and he still can’t walk.

In November, 2010 Tom was sent to the Federal (prison) Medical Center at Butner, NC for knee replacement surgery. He received the surgery 20 months later yet he still cannot walk because he’s not received the necessary physical therapy, and because a severely damaged shoulder prevents him from using a walker and crutches.

Although an outside doctor highly recommended shoulder replacement surgery, a “committee” of BOP bureaucrats recently denied the doctor’s recommendation. Tom must have shoulder surgery and physical therapy if he’s to have any chance at walking again. Presently he remains in a wheelchair and held in a Butner isolation unit where he’s been for the past 30 months.

Write to Tom and send him words of love and support:

Thomas W. Manning

    Tom manning is hero for the fight he waged against the corporations and our cannibal waring government that has given us citizens and the entire world the mess we live in today where invasion torture are seen as acceptable for our hero military to carry out on civilians defending from invading forces killing for corporate profits. I worked and new tom as young man in Maine and he once intervined and physically fought to protected me from being beaten badly by a drunk man twice my age when I was 14years old, I have never forgotten tom and his kindness and moral standing for doing the right thing for me and in the larger sense our society . He should be given what he is entitled to be well and comfortable in prison at the very least. Tom if you read this I have thought of you many times and would like to be in contact with you and help you any way I can if that is possible . I will get a card out to you this week.

      My name is Steven Bell #10964-036 and I was at the federal prison in springfield Missouri in 2007 with Tom Manning. Tom if you ever read this know that I think of you and Ralph Dimasi regularly. Tom Manning is a man of truth and integrity. I have never known another person with the heart of Thomas Manning. Tom Manning is one of the few people who see through the façade of this United States of America Incorporated. Tom is a hero. To stand for what is right and to end oppression. The greedy government likes to paint a much different picture. The EVIL corrupt corporations want people to see Tom in a negative way because he has the heart and morals to stand for the people. All People. Tom I love you man and I pray for your healing. When judgement day comes Tom Manning will be recognized as a great person who sought to loosen the grip that corporate America has on the people all over the world.

    A story to be told.

    There are two parts to this story. The first part is a general description of conditions of incarceration that exist at the Butner prison complex as well as being endemic to the Federal Bureau of Prisons and the second part a tragic but true tale of my personal experience at the hands of prison staff.
    Correctional science today has degenerated into a system that perpetuates violence by building into itself abuses of power. It employs in large a segment of society that could not survive in the private sector and then gives them a union who fights to forgive any transgression they make. While the circumstances I will describe are from incidents that took place at FMC Springfield, Mo, and the Federal prison complex at Butner NC they are far more common than thought. Our society today by our own statistics is the most violent society in the history of the world. How did we become that. We represent 5% of the world population and yet house 25% of the prison population of the world. Is our U.S. society that bad or have we perhaps created a criminal justice system that is not working. Before you read my personnel story let me outline some general conditions at Butner.

    Food Service
    Our food service department is currently going through a food poisoning epidemic that has killed at least two people and sickened hundreds. We have live and dead rats in cages around our food preparation area. The quality of the food in general is so poor that anyone who walks in on an evening or breakfast meal could see it for themselves, but alas here at Butner , administrative staff is seldom here. They don’t stand main line for questions or complaints as used to be common. They are ghosts.

    Mail Room
    Our mail is lost stolen or diverted on a regular basis. Two day priority mail comes 9 to 11 days later if at all. Magazines, newspapers and pictures just regularly disappear. Complaints are ignored.

    Education
    There is none. Look at systems in the library for handling or storing books..none. Pre-release programs and education….none. Its all pretty signs and a group of unqualified non caring people hiding from work.

    Recreation
    No programs for the infirm or sick who live at Butner, but rec staff works out on a regular basis.

    Unit team
    This administrative staff that handles inmate paperwork, We have one inmate unit manager who’s daughter worked for the BOP and was caught having sex with an inmate. He has become so crazed they call him “nut case” and his hatred of inmates is famous. We have a case manager who was a secretary married to a c/o (nepotism in BOP is famous) then was sleeping with a Lt. causing fights that were famous in the parking lot. To get rid of her they promoted her to case manager at a different facility in the complex where she now shops on line and ignores inmate needs. A blind person could see the abuses of power and lack of work by unit teams at Butner, but its prevalent though out the “system”

    Health Services
    My story attached explains that well. Check the background of some of our doctors. We have one at Butner low who can’t speak English. I could go on and on but what’s the use. I fear for my life and plead for help not only for me but for a broken and sick system that will implode soon.

    Administration
    who are they? We never have a main line with anyone present and this institution is the most reverse racist place ever. it’s a joke coming to a place that openly hates whites and if your mixed race your hit either way.

    (My Letter to my Attorney)
    Mr. Bruce Berger,
    I am Matthew Quinn Mason, the 27 year old young man from Martinsburg, W.V. born and raised that called you on the phone March 5th at 3:00 p.m. I am providing you with the letter that you requested and am please asking for your help, this is not a hoax, embellishment or fabricated story. These are true events that are and have taken place to me. If someone would hear my cries and look into it they would see I am telling the truth. Okay here I go. First I was incarcerated at Eastern Regional Jail in Martinsburg, WV in 2008 in which I became a Federal Prisoner who was held at a private county jail. While there I was a healthy 20 year old young man. I began to have severe stomach problems in which I would pass blood when having a bowel movement. I also had back pain and had made several sick calls to the clinic and was given nothing but Motrin. I wrote a letter to Prime Care Medical who was over the jail and still to no avail and I got no help. One night I was found by my cell-mate having a seizure in which I was sent to the hospital and woke up paralyzed. I could feel nothing from top chest down. I had too much inflammation on my spine to see anything and was diagnosed Transverse Myelitis. I was sent to a private contract facility in Feb. 2009 in South Carolina named Columbia Care Center in Columbia. There I did not receive the medical care needed and kept a log book of every encounter. There was no remedy or system, not anything. I was then given an MRI for to spasms it was unsuccessful. I was seeing a therapist that told me that he was trying to order me things and they would not pay for it, that I needed to get out of there. He volunteered to call my mother, Sonya Mason, to tell her to contact my lawyer. My attorney Larry D. Garrett filed a motion and contacted the prosecution I was transferred prosecution sentenced by video to MCFP Springfield in Missouri. While in Missouri after several problems with getting help someone showed me how to do a Administrative Remedy. I began to do so and from that point my life went to hell. I got sick several times with my abdomin got several bowel obstructions before being diagnosed with Chromes disease. I went through so much trying to get help with my Chromes disease being ignored that I was hospitalized for 27 days and had to get emergency surgery-section of small bowel, 15cm) in which the medical records from St. Johns hospital how in the first sentence that I had to get this surgery and was hospitalized due to my under treated chromes disease at MCFD Springfield. All of this was going on while my spinal condition was trying to heal but due to the constant punitive and retaliatory actions by staff from filing I was constantly locked down with no recreation for 24 hrs. a day, no book cart or cleaning supplies for months and months. Being locked down I could not receive any physical therapy and kept being marked as non-compliant. I began to file on that and was eventually after months given a doctors order to be ambulated 2x a day. The medical staff would neglect that order due to personal feelings and not help me. I would need help using the bathroom on myself and would set with feces for sometimes 45 minutes. In which I then caught stage 4 pressure ulcer. Because of me always trying to get help and labeled a problem from filing and getting blamed for things and lied on nobody would help me or listen to my problems. I still kept filing and logging things. In 2010 a officer who I had many run in’s with and is known for being a racist and harasser inmates came to my room while on lockdown because I was banging on the door because they did not give me a dinner tray to eat, said my order ran out so I had to go without dinner. He came in my room and told me to sit on my bed. I was standing with my walker. I told him no I want my food in which he called me a nigger and charged me and I swung to defend myself. I fell to the ground because I couldn’t move my legs and he punched me in my face and began to choke me and I punched and spit back. After other officers came I was put in leg irons and handcuffed behind my back and thrown into my wheelchair. When we got on the elevator on unit 3-2 to go down to one, I was slapped and kneed in my sides, chest and spit on. when the door opened back-up and there were cameras they stopped (3 officers) I was dragged backwards in the wheelchair and told the whole time that I was going to enjoy this ass whipping you nigger. I would look good hanging from a tree, also, many racial slurs and comments. When we arrived at the 2 building elevator to go to unit 2-1 I was again assaulted the elevator until the door opened. I was taken to the real shu a ambulatory unit in a wheelchair, paralyzed and dumped out of my chair face first and smacked my head on the floor. I was picked up by the hand cuffs behind my back and leg irons on legs and thrown into a shower face first. I was told to take my cloths off still cuffed behind my back. Officer Tucker entered the shower and kicked me in my back and face and busted my nose. He told the other officer to get a trash bag, we are going to suffocate this nigger. A bag was placed on my head and pulled so I couldn’t breath in which another officer not involved came named officer Deathrage and told them to stop. He came to my side and moved the cuffs to the front. Asked if I could be good. I said yes. I could not move my neck and a nurse came to do an assessment and a video was taken. I was out of it. I did not know where I was my lips were busted, my eye was swollen, bruises on my chest, ribs and back. I was then thrown into a cell even with making complaints and a C-collar was put on my neck. I woke up on the floor because I had a seizure in which I told them and they said they knew I was faking to go back to another unit. I was locked down in a cell with no rec for 90 days. When I asked for rec they told me I could go to where I take a shower which was in the same room. I had no help and had fallen on the floor several times and asked for help and was told this is ambulatory, you do things for your self over here and lay on the floor on my stage 4 wound for 2 1/2 hours before they came to help me. I was then kicked to a unit (1-3) general population unit with no help or anything because they did not want me on the sick floor. I was now more of a target then ever. I was blamed for everything and every time locked down with no rec for 24 hours a day. The next incident would take place on Dec. 3, 2013. I was already locked down for ten months when this happened with no shot. An officer hung the phone up on my mother without telling me and I only got 1 call a month. I asked him about it and he laughed. I punched the window and it cracked. I knew they were going to beat me when he stated I been waiting to beat your ass. I pushed my bed in front of the door and used my trapeze bar to hold onto so I could stand. Lt. Flowers, officer Tucker, officer Deathrage, nurse manager Ms. Flowers, all who were involved last time and Lt. Myne came. They threatened to shoot me with a boon hog gun if I didn’t move the bed and I told them not until you get the video camera like the policy states before you enter a cell. They said fuck it and kicked the door in. Officer Tucker and Deathrage 6’8″ and 360 lbs. came in the room and threw me on the bed. Tucker punched me in the face immediately saying remember me and busted my nose and mouth. Deathrage booted me and when I bounced off the wall I tried to grab Tuckers shirt to stay up and he punched me again. I fell to the floor and locked on a tv in which they began to kick and stomp me. I was put leg irons on and hand cuffed behind my back. I was drug out and when in the hallway with a camera I was pulled up by my pony tail. Head pulled back and busted in my face by officer Tucker, about four times. I yelled for help and they all laughed. I was threatened to be killed and hung all the way to mental health in which does not fit my medical needs at all. I was put on four point restraints for no reason on my stage 4 pressure sore. I was given a search in a little room before that took place. This search was by Tucker and Deathrage. My clothes were cut off. My penis was fondled by Tucker and he made the statement that I thought blacks all had big dicks and a comment about his wife. I was rolled on my side and a digital search of my rectum was admitted. I asked to talk to a psychologist and they laughed, then I was on four points. I asked the CNA sitting on me if I could get water and she said she is not there to talk to me. The restraint was so tight and pulling my body contorted in a abnormal way that my whole arm went numb. I begged for help and no one came. After an hour Lt. Mool came and moved the restraint to be more comfortable, but I could not get off my pressure sore that was throbbing and burning and had no dressing on it. After a few hours they came with a meal and I was not able to eat because they kept my hands restrained. It was a Monday morning and the SIS Lt. came to take pictures. In which I told him to get everything and he stated damn Mason I think they can see this. My face had blood all over it. Eye swollen inside of my mouth busted from being punched. Bruises on my head from being kicked. They also did a video in which I was screaming with my injuries and how I got them because they were telling the nurse what to say before she did the video and it was wrong. I was then locked down for 6 more months to a total of 14 months, no recreation or anything given. Sanctions for my shot after locked down for a year. The C.O.’s lied and said I had a piece of glass threatening them and to kill myself that is why they came in my room and I punched him, all lies. Never sent it to the FBI or followed the policy of applying restraint or use of force. I am in a wheelchair can only stand while using my arms to do so and five trained correction officers cannot subdue me without punching me, kicking me, spitting on me, and making racial slurs before and after I am handcuffed behind my back. I was violated sexually by these staff. This is just what went on in Missouri. I studied hard contacted Senator Claire Mckaskil, Shelly Moore Capito, Senator Rockefeller, as well as the other Senator of WV. I wrote the ACLU, NAACP and plenty of other organizations. I had no phone or anything to find a lawyer or anyone to turn to. My family would not get my mail. They did anything you could imagine, I was mentally exhausted. I spoke with psychology all the time. Tried to kill myself numerous times and I filed a BIVENS. Paid the filing fee. I was told by two people on my side that I would never be treated be treated like a regular person and they fought to get me out of there. They threw my property away, played with my food and had the same Tucker guy working my unit harassing me. I get to Butner on April 16, 2013. I was stopped by administrative staff from going into the yard. I was kept locked down two months denied law library, BOP 1315.07 and missed my deadline in court in which my claim was time barred. I could not get any memo from my unit team and told by them that this is a family. I was told by SIS Lt. Davis that he knew and it was clear that they were harassing me at MO and that he would give me a chance on this yard. I was let on the compound. Not even 8 days later I was hit in the eye by a mental health patient who has done this 2 other times off his medications and sent to the ER,. I had to get laser eye surgery and reading glasses for the rest of my life. I was locked down for over a month when everyone told them what had happened even staff. Not to long later I was seen by medical PA Cuban. I was taken off all my medication that I was on for 5 years at another MCFP because she personally thought it was too muck. I was forced by pain management to take methadone against my will. By him taking my other medication and ordering that even though I told him I did not want it. My equipment braces made by the prosthetic dept. in MO was taken and disposed of by PA Cubon because she said I did not need them. This was by a neurologist and team of doctors is the reason I had this stuff but this PA Cuban wanted to trump all of them. I had fell in a room unhandicap from the toilet and tore an artery in my wound in which I was leaking blood and when I called the nurse, Ms. Davis she come and told me she wasn’t going to enter the room because the blood on the floor. I lost so much I passed out and went to the ER. I received 5 pints of blood because I had lost so much and was sent back.

    (2nd part of my letter to my Attorney) Anyone reading this PLEASE contact the warden and the officials at Butner Federal medical Center (919) 575-3900 on my behalf and help me out if you can..
    Well it busted again and I had to get emergency muscle flap surgery. After surgery I was placed on a post surgical unit. I was not given the klethon air bed as was told to have and put on a standard mattress. After 1 month I was kicked off the unit due to needing bed space and sent to a unit where I had to go to pill line 5x per day and 2x a day dressing changes. After complaining of not getting the proper post surgical treatment I was locked down out of the blue. My surgical site broke down and I had a ulcer again. I was locked down 6 months with no shot, explanation, recreation or anything. I showed the policy to Captain Wilbor, Lt. Kearry and Lt. Davis both SIS and the Captain told me he was working on a plan after I had been locked down 3 months. I never got rec and there is still no plan and they say medical does not get rec. I was kicked to a rehab floor because PA Cubon told staff that I threatened to do something to her and I was never given a shot. On this unit I am the only one wheelchair bound and with a stage 4 pressure ulcer. I had no help with ADL’s, bed, room cleaning or anything. I fought to get bed rest so that my wound could heal, they said no. When I do not go to pill line or mainline to eat, I can sit in bed. Pill line is 5x a day and line is about an hour long. Meds 3x a day and dressing changes 2x a day in which you have to stay 1 hour each time to wait for nurse. Inmates that are locked down get there meds brought to them and a meal tray but me with a wound down to the bone tunneling and undermining trying to get it to heal and is painful cannot. I was in so much pain having to get a dressing change twice a day. They pack it, pull it out and stick it with a q-tip, it was unbearable. I would cry and shake during dressing change. They would give me no medication, said I was on too much. Pain management Mr. Seys said that I should of been sedated before each dressing change, but he could not do anything about it. My PA would not even answer my sick calls and the Clinical Director said I could take Tylenol and Ibuprophen. I had a hole in my body to the bone and 50mgs of extended release morphine was not touching it. I complained to all staff filing and sending cop-puts with no prevail, like I was playing a game. They were out to get me and retaliating because of the claims. I got sick with a blood infection from the wound. I was sent back up to the floor I was supposed to be on and received IV antibiotics for 2 weeks. I still had fevers and chills in which even though expressing that I was sent back to the 3rd floor rehab unit. The following week back to the hospital for fevers and chills , on IV antibiotics at Granville. I told doctors they are not helping me to please fix me, and they sent me back. I went back upstairs for 3 days they stopped the IV pulled the pick line and back downstairs. Still I am complaining of fevers, chills and my wound burning and going into my back. Two days later I had temperature of 106.5 and I am sent back to hospital and covered in ice packs. I had a collection of fluid in my wound. I beg them to close it and fix me, that the prison is dogging me out at the FMC and they send me back. One day later I am shaking with chills and a fever again. I go to the nurse, she calls PA Carter and she says go to sick call. I just got back, there is nothing wrong. I go to my unit manager Mr. McCoy and he sees I am sick, goes to the officer Mr. Martin who tells him that it has been like this for 2 months. I will be in my cell crying in pain throwing up and shaking, he calls and they do nothing. I will go back upstairs and come back the same way. My unit manager said everyone is letting their personal feelings dictate if they are going to help but not on his watch. He calls the medical warden, I go back to the hospital. I stay 19 days and get surgery. I had a bone infection from the infection in my wound going towards my pelvic region. I tell the doctor I told him and he apologized and said that is why he was fixing me. I believe the hospital missed it to because, how did it grow that fast in one or two days. They did not do the test they did the second time was there as they did the last time to find it. I came back and have been on the fifth floor since October. I filed my administrative remedy right away and implicated all involved with policies at statements attached. I made it worse! In the past 3 months I have been tortured mentally and retaliated against for trying to file in accordance to the PLRA exhausting my remedies but it makes them aware. I have had (1) 300 series shot in 20 months, these past 3 months since filing (7) shots (2) 200 series (3) 300 series and now (2) 100 series. I was supposed to go to home confinement April 3rd, but the PA Cubon, one of the parties involved has denied to medically clear me in retaliation. She has told me for a whole month she did it and when I found out avoids talking to me. she told my case manager I have a condition that causes me a lot of doctors appointments. I bought and retained a 1 year insurance policy, my home plan has been approved by my probation officer Stein Gray in San Antonio, Texas. I have a job letter shaking my job employment and making $1000 a week by policy 7320.01. I meet all requirements and more. I spoke to Dr. Ansari who was my care provider on the 3rd floor for 10 months in which he stated there is no reason for me not to be clear and he will tell anyone that. My other Doctor I had Dr. Ward stated the same thing. The neurologist I just seen on Wednesday the 3rd stated that my condition is stable and my spinal cord has healed a little and I do not need anything. But the doctor who is my doctor right now and I have filed on, says no I have a chronic condition and will not explain or speak to me. I have never in 20 months that I have been here sat down with this lady and had a medical assessment or workup. I have been licked up for seven years and have never had a full work up for my condition. I just had my first successful MRI eight months ago. Mr. Seys told me to go see a neurosurgeon when I get out that he thinks I do not even have what they think I have. I have never had a spinal tap and it took seven years to get a MRI. I spoke to psychology Dr. Stubing Riley, my only advocate, who stated to me that I need to get out of here before I do not make it. I had someone listening to me when I called you. I am in fear for my life and I do not know what to do. I want to give up. I want to die, but I have a 6 yr. old daughter and family. I have no hope and feel so alone and dark inside. I hope you are my blessing I have been praying for. I am locked down right now again after being searched by 8 different officers 5 times in seven days. Yesterday after my phone call to you I was put in a room while my room was searched and they say they found a lighter and two syringes. I have never seen, used or thought of using or having anything like that. The officer lied and said I told him it was mine. I am supposed to go home and they are trying to make me max out till October on lock down with no recreation or anything. I am in a room with my stuff all an the floor and no help or anything. My food trays are ice cold and when i hit my call light they click it on then off. I am not safe and sir this is not fake or make up. I will pay you a retainer just to be able to prove to you and show you this is real. It is amazing what is going on because I think they have been getting away with it for so long. I have the physical damage, medical records, cop-outs, administrative remedies and letters to outside sources and the responses. I have several staff that told me they would testify as well as told me that I need to do so. I got your name from a C.O. and had my brothers secretary make an appointment. Sir please come see me so that I may speak to you and only you, the more they know the more they punish me. They gave me (2) 100 series shots the worst you can get to keep me here, take my phone, visits, e-mail, and canteen as well as locked in a room away from everyone because I filed a formal complaint. I am crying right now and need help. I do not know who to turn to. I have been beaten, sexually assaulted , destroyed, paralyzed for life, denied treatment, cruel and unusual punishment, pain and suffering. I have educated myself on my surroundings and would not waste your time if I did not know they are wrong and criminal acts taking place. I could car less about money, I* want help and to change things for others because it is happening to them as well. I thank you for your time sir and pray that you come see me and help. I need it now it is crazy what is being done to me. I hope this letter gets to you. Once again sir this is not a game and I promise you will not be blind sided by any lies this is truth and I can show you. You are my only hope and right now I need it because I am in fear for my physical and mental safety. From one West Virginian to another. I have read all about you on the internet your criteria and accomplishments. I know that you are right for this case as well as stand up for what is right. I hope you come to my rescue soon.

    Respectfully and Truthfully
