This is a CALL TO ACTION on behalf of Howard Richardson, a J6 detainee #76311-509, being held in FCI Schuylkill, Federal Correctional Institution in Minersville, PA.
Howard has reportedly been held in solitary confinement since January 26th. He is being denied commissary and communication.
The reason given for his solitary confinement is his continued communications with J6 advocates who he has been told are “bad”. The guard identified two individuals by name, and Howard believes he is being targeted for speaking out.
Please contact the prison facility and Marshal’s Office to report this incident. This is an abuse of power and inhumane treatment of an inmate. It is actually against the Geneva Convention.
Howard has requested this information be shared and is asking help from the public.
The facility number for Schuylkill correctional institution is 570-544-7100.
You can also call the Marshal’s Office at 703-740-8132; the “Middle District of Pennsylvania” office can be reached at 570-346-7277.
Another avenue is to consider filing an online Bureau of Prisons inmate abuse form: www.usa.gov/prisons.
Others may be able to provide further details regarding Howard’s situation.
Update: We talked with someone at the Middle District of Pennsylvania” office and they were very nice. Unfortunately they do not deal with complaints. All they do is bringing/moving inmates to 4 or 5 jails in their area. He recommended that people write emails to the marshalls in DC and the warden of the jail so there is a paper trial of complaints.
Look at that smile! Howard is no criminal. Yet he is serving a unjust sentence.
Let’s go! Let’s make those phone calls!
