I was a guard at the federal Supermax prison that replaced Alcatraz, USP Marion. I guarded the worst of the worst of America's criminals. Spies, serial killers, Mafia Dons, Bank Robbers and Child Molesters, Machine gun killers. The cream of America's sewers. See my youtube channel asthekeyturns.
A heavy hand descends on USP Marion. In the aftermath of the murder of two guards and one inmate in a very short period of time the BOP reacts. The prisoners at the time claim to have been beaten, personal property taken and other acts of revenge. I give one prisoner's view and my comments. Keep in mind I was not there yet. This opinion is my personal experiences at the same prison, with some of the same prisoners. This was the only level 6, Federal Supermax prison at the time of these events. Many prisoners had been murdered leading up to the killings of the guards. A race war was in full swing between the DC Blacks and the Aryan Brotherhood. This is a story about the response the guards, administration of the prisons and the leadership of the Federal Bureau Of Prisons had to the seemingly out of control "end of the line" prison in 1983.
Sally Ann Tucker plead guilty and was convicted of the murder of her infant daughter. She is sentenced to prison for 20 years. We the tax payer pay for her rehabilitation and get nothing for it. She wont even report to her Parole Officer, hold a job or do any of the counseling she promised the parole board. Go figure.
This was the first murder investigation I was able to assist with. I was a cadet with the Cowlitz County Sheriff's in Washington State office at the time, 40 years ago. All this time I have wondered what happened to Sally's other baby?
I will tell you exactly why the implementation of policy will lead to many deaths inside US Federal Prisons. I will tell you how disease has spread in prison in the past and what needs to change to protect inmates and staff from the Corona Virus this time. I will explain why nothing the President, Congress or Health Officials will be able to stop the infection in prison. If you think prisoners will be protected, think again. It would be the end of the world if you relied on the Federal Bureau of Prisons to protect you. It will be the end for many prisoners before this crisis is over.
A 23 year veteran of the Supermax USP Marion talks about was Jeffery Epstein murdered? Was the prison staff guilty of criminal activity? Why is Jeffery Epstein dead? How could this happen? Did changing the Warden and BOP Director change anything? Why was non-Correctional officers watching Epstein?
Terry Lee Green. A prisoner from the state of Wyoming serving his time in the Supermax federal prison in Colorado. I once had a fight with him in it. He assaulted 20 federal prison guards, was shot in the crotch with an anti riot gun and still almost escaped the cell block. Imagine that guy and his gang of murdering cut throats finding you broken down on a lonely stretch of road after midnight. That is exactly what happened to a school teacher and his elderly mother. This is a true story taken from the official records and the memory of a prison guard. The scary part is that this is not fiction. Warning this story is about real life, murder, rape and torture. You have been warned!
A over 40 minute interview with Dr. Marla Patterson about her new book "As I Live And Breathe" she describes what it was like to work from the lease secure to the most secure prison in America and everything in between. Dealing with the criminally insane is a challenging job to say the least. Being a woman in an all male prison can be a nightmare at times. He book is available at Amazon for less than $7 in kindle or less than $15 inprint form.
Pollard sold his countries most secret information. He talked to his kind old mother like she was a bitch. He and I had a nice talk at the top of the stairs about how not to fall down and break is neck. The man was and is a total asshole who was pardoned by the US President. Last heard living in New York City waiting to move to Israel.
The guy who killed for Officer Sharma was given death for a previous crime. I also explain how life in prison does not mean he will die in prison. Even a death sentence means he will not die in prison. How is this possible? I explain.
She is doing life in prison for the crime she did in prison. The only Federal CO given life in prison for a crime in prison. There are no secrets in prison. I am a retired Federal Correctional Officer and I tell stories of my 23 years working in a Supermax prison located at Marion, Illinois.
Many have heard of Tommy Silverstein, the animal that killed a Correctional Officer at the supermax prison in Marion Illinois. But few have heard of the guy that helped him get out of the cuff and handed him the knife. He also tried to shoot a friend of mine while locked up in the control unit of US Penitentiary Marion. How did he get a gun in a supermax prison? I will tell you.
On 29 January 1984 at 5:20 AM Gary Stammen walked into a cell block of the maximum security prison in Oxford Wisconsin and made the horrific discovery of the mangled body of his friend and co-worker Correctional Officer Spikerman. This is a true story.
You heard of the Blind Sheik who orchestrated the 1st bombing of the word trade center in 1993. I knew the clown who rented the vehicle they used and tried to get the deposit back on a vehicle that was blown to bits.
One of the most powerful living members of the Aryan Brotherhood today. Leader of the racist violent prison gang who love Hitler and hates gays, who orders the death of African Americans because they are not white, is part Jewish and has a black lover. Talk about do what I say not what I do. This is two parts, listen to both to get the whole story of this unusual man.
I hear it all the time. If you didn't do it you have nothing to fear. True, but... How many times have you been accused of something you never did? I have been investigated dozens of times for things I did not do. Inmates make stuff up to get rid of officers who are good at keeping things under control. It is policy not to take any action against a prisoner who is proven false. Try that at your local police station. Make up a crime, say you witnessed and say your neighbor did it. When the Cops find out you made it all up, think they will give you a candy bar and send you home? They will in prison.
Torturer James Lee Baker was caught at USP Marion trying to beat a confession from a minimum security inmate. He took great pride in getting confession from people as high up as s Associate Warden, the second in charge of a prison. He chocked the man and struck him in the groin. He destroyed the case against a suspect in child molestation, got a supervisor fired and lost his right to vote, own a firearm, hold public office, his retirement and the respect of many. To say he was a bad egg is no exaggeration. If you listen to him he will tell you that I and many of my coworkers have no honor. I will let you decide after you hear this story.
You hear all about the big deal Mafia Dons. What about the little crew leaders, the soldiers of the Mafia? Frank Sacco was just one of those guys. Almost never heard about but doing a great deal of harm by stealing, bribery of Police Officers, Inspectors, Elected Officials, and just a few murders now and then. I knew him as a guy who had the will to fight but years in prison took their toll on him.
Less than one tenth of one percent of the total population of the federal prison system but they murder 25% of all the people killed in federal prison. They killed two Officers at USP Marion in a single day. Here is a short history of the racial war they started decades ago that still rages today. My entire time as a Correctional Officer at the Supermax Prison USP Marion the AB's or The Brand as they are known was at war with African American's.
The Mafia Don John Gotti, known as the Teflon Don or the Dapper Don had his ass handed to him by a bank robber Walter O. Johnson. The only prisoner I was afraid of was Johnson. He was an out of control psychopath, the kind of guy that keep Cops wives up at night. He got out of my prison and in less than a month killed a police officer and tried to kill 3 more. I saw Johnson punching and kicking the old weak man that was John Gotti, once the most feared man in New York City, reduced to a punching bag for a street punk.
The Aryan Brotherhood is the most violent prison gang in the federal prison system. David Sahakian promised to kill 10 guards for every AB put to death by the government. After a multi million dollar trial the Government refused to sentence a single AB to death for dozens of murders. Who is running the federal system? Gangs or the Government.
Inmates who embarrass the government need to be silenced. Today that is called the Communications Management Unit or CMU. Before that it was called K unit at USP Marion. So secret that the guards who worked there will not talk about it today, decades after it closed. All but one, me.
Joe Principe was a Correctional Officer at the Supermax ADX in Colorado. The prison that took the place as the highest security prison in the nation from USP Marion. He became involved with the Aryan Brotherhood prison gang. This is the sad story of a corrupt cop who ended in disaster for himself and everybody associated with him. He crossed the line and paid a heavy price. The Aryan Brotherhood is the most violent prison gang in the federal system. They are responsible for 25% of murders but make up only 0.01% of the population in federal prison. They killed two officers at USP Marion in a single day.
He killed over 20 people, shot Larry Flint the publisher of Hustler Magazine and put him in a wheelchair. Resident of K unit the most secret unit inside the Supermax Federal Prison USP Marion. He wished to start a race war. He killed anybody he could who had any type of relationship with a non-white person. He once killed a woman who was friends with another woman who had a black boyfriend. Before he was interviewed by the FBI I helped map his mind so he would confess to his murders. It worked and he was put to death by lethal injection. Just another day at US Penitentiary Marion. See my videos on youtube "as the key turns"
