At Red Onion State Prison, Solitary Confinement Reform Is Reduced To Platitudes, Murals and Sloganeering

A dated memo 6/6/2016 to Red Onion State Prison
Note the written comment: The problem with this memo is, it relates to the Solitary Confinement of Segregation building, where prisoners are held and warehoused for decades. There isn't any HEALING ENVIRONMENT. It's only abuse, mistreatment, and violence against prisoners. Murals & slogans on walls will not impact any of that. What will is an investigation by an NON-VADOC source. Solitary Confinement reform is a must but it needs a unified voice against it. By the way? It is now 2017 and they have yet to put up mural/slogan!

Virginia Department of Corrections Considers Transgenders Mental Health Cases and It Labels Transgender Prisoners as GENDER NON-CONFORMIST

Virginia Department of Corrections Memo to prisoners:
Note the written comment: What O.P. 810.1 and 810.2 are saying is Virginia Department of Corrections [VADOC] considers and classify Transgender prisoners and issues as Mental Health cases and issues. But most importantly VADOC does not recognize Transgenders and considers Transgenders as Gender-Non-conforming. This is discrimination against transgenders.

Solitary Confinement Reform Advocacy Is Golden Goose For Vera Institute of Justice

Reform Advocacy is Golden Goose
presenting an exploitive opportunity for the usual suspects, i.e The Vera Institute of Justice.

Along with holding prison officials accountable for their action.  We have to expose this culture, where prison reform becomes petty opportunity for certain mind and hearts, i.e The Vera Institute of Justice to profit at the expense of Prisoners who are subjects of the barbarity of prison officials experimentation.

Prima facie evidence, see from the Vera Institute of Justice for upcoming 4/25/17; Reimagine Justice Gala. That is obscenely nothing less than profiting at the expense of Prisoners.

VADOC's Red Onion State Prison Food Service & Starvation Portion Control

Yes, the menu LOOKS good to the eyes until you actually SEE the food items and how indicated portion size ISN'T what Prisoners at Red Onion State Prison get. We at vapac Use Red Onion State Prison [ROSP] as the example as most Department of Correction [DOC] prisons are to be included.

(note #VADOC & #ROSP's MENU IS  the Punchline NOT the misspelling of  standardized on menu)

*Menu Not Funny Enough*
*The Joke is with our starving Prisoners*
Food Operations Director [FOD] and "IT IS NOT FUNNY ANYMORE!
