Bill White On Hunger Strike

This is kind of third hand, but it's important.

I have been informed that Bill White has gone on a hunger strike in order to force the Seminole County Jail to A) restore his telephone privileges; B) cease interfering with and returning his mail; and C) remove him from the medieval torture cell where he was placed on order of the United States Marshals and the United States Attorney's office as punishment for refusal to plead guilty to a crime he did not commit.

Gabriel d'Annunzio tells me that Bill has now been hospitalized, although I am not clear whether that means in an actual hospital, or simply taken to the jail infirmary. He also tells me that Bill's lawyer has obtained some kind of promise from the dictatorship that Bill will be moved, either out of the torture cell or to another prison. Whether or not the dictatorship will keep its word is always moot.

More details as I can learn them.

Dictatorship keeping its word?
Okay, similar to a poisonous reptile promising to not bite and kill you?
