Remember Edgar Steele

Hi, guys:

Just a quick reminder that in this festive season, blah blah blah, we need to remember an elderly man of 66 who is spending his second Christmas locked up in a hole, in some unknown location.

Edgar J. Steele was being held at the Seatac Federal Correctional Center until a few days ago, when he was "disappeared" once again, no one knows where to. This was shortly after I contacted the prison about visiting him. There may be cause and effect there, maybe not.

What has been done to this man is a never-ending wrong. Probably the worst thing about going to prison is that as the days and months and years drag by, your family and friends and supporters get bored or discouraged or anxious to move on, and either intentionally or simply by degrees, they cut the prisoner loose.

This can't happen with Ed Steele. The regime wants him buried alive and forgotten, and they cannot be allowed to win on this one, because there will be others who follow Edgar Steele. Many, many others.

Right now we can't do anything for him, because we don't even know what they've done with him. But we must always keep him in our minds, especially at this time of year.

A Merry Christmas to you all.

Good day, HAC. I feel that as we approach the end of the year, and pretty much a financial and societal Armageddon as well, that the time for networking is at hand.

Please check out this blog. We have attempted to promote the Covington Chronicles far beyond the borders of the US ... with your approval, please link to us. or, at the very least, drop in and feel free to comment.

Having been through the federal meat grinder myself, I would assume that their SOP has not changed in the intervening years. Steele's next step after SeaTac is up to one year in the "Segregation Unit" at FCI Sheridan 60 miles south of Portland. I am convinced that "seg" is designed to destroy the health and mental clarity of a prisoner through constant, excessive illumination, sleep denial, lack of exercise and a high carbohydrate diet. An ill senior citizen feeling betrayed and consistently paired with non-English speaking cellmates has perhaps 9-12 months to live under these conditions. All by design, of course.
