Letter from a Prisoner

Aug 13, 2001

August 3, 2001

Dear Spark,

I am writing this letter from the Wabash Valley Correctional Facility in Carlisle Indiana. The purpose of this letter is so that I can generate some support for a friend of mine. His name is Dayon Miller #967420 and he is currently housed here at the Secured Housing Units maximum lockup. On July 25, 2001, Mr. Miller was locked up for allegedly trying to kill an officer. This is what the police that runs this camp is saying. They came to the dorm (GHU left) and took him to lockup. As they were taking him out I heard a couple of the officers state that D. Miller was going to pay.

You are going to pay means that your mail will be destroyed, food tampered with (spit in, urinated in, maced, etc.) and it is nothing that one can do because there are no means of getting word out about these atrocities.

I am writing to request letters, calls, petitions, etc., of support to the Commissioner of the DOC and the superintendent of WVCF inquiring about the welfare of this prisoner who is being harassed daily by these barbaric low life cowards. They are taking vigilante justice into their hands and saying damn the political process. The reasons that I am so concerned is because several murders have taken place here and have been covered up.

Please show your support by contacting the addresses below and inquiring about Mr. Miller. Your time, effort, energy and support is and will be greatly appreciated.
