The People Who Rule Us Are Evil
I have finally heard from Ed via two letters.
They are holding him in solitary confinement 24/7 in a 7' x 12' cell with two bunks (but no cellmate), a toilet, sink, shower that has 2 temps, hot as hell and cold as sin. The toilet paper he gets is stripped off the cardboard roll, which Ed assumes means that that they think he can't be trusted with it. He says that days go by without anyone talking to him.
On top of this, they are not allowing him to have all his prescribed medications. He is only being allowed one 15-minute phone call a month, which if true, he used this past Wednesday to call Wes.
God, this is a nightmare.
[My understanding is that as of 11/25 Cyndi has not been told specifically where her husband is being held, but it is somewhere in the central part of the U.S. The withholding of medication is a standard federal ploy to expedite death by "natural causes" in custody, one of the most famous cases being that of former Clinton crony Jim McDougal. - HAC]
