There are people who would be surprised to find out that the political prisoners being held over the supposed “insurrection” at the Capitol on January 6 are being tortured. Those people don’t understand what is going on.
We are entering into full Bolshevism, and torture is a part of that.
This is from the attorney of Ryan Samsel, one of the people charged in the Capitol Storm who is being held at the Capitol Jail:
It would be nice if Donald Trump would mention something about this.
But I won’t hold my breath on that.
POLITICO is the only mainstream news outlet I’ve found reporting on it:
Tensions are running high between guards and inmates at a D.C. jail housing many of the defendants in Jan. 6 cases, with at least one of those prisoners alleging that he was brutally beaten by correctional officers.
For weeks, Capitol riot defendants being held in Washington have complained that they are locked in their cells with virtually no human contact for 23 hours a day. But a startling, graphic account offered publicly in court on Tuesday by one such inmate, Ronald Sandlin, went further: alleging that guards have subjected those charged in the Jan. 6 events to violence, threats and verbal harassment.
“Myself and others involved in the Jan. 6 incident are scared for their lives, not from each other but from correctional officers,” Sandlin said during a bail hearing conducted by video before U.S. District Court Judge Dabney Friedrich. “I don’t understand how this is remotely acceptable,” he added, saying he was being subjected to “mental torture.”
In an unusual direct plea to the judge, Sandlin said another Capitol riot defendant, Ryan Samsel, “was severely beaten by correctional officers, [is now] blind in one eye, has a skull fracture and detached retina.”
Sandlin also described racial tension between minority guards and the largely white defendants, some of whom have been publicly accused of membership in or association with white supremacist groups.
Sandlin said guards tackled “to the ground” one high-profile prisoner, Richard Barnett, 60, who was photographed with his boot up on a desk in Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office. Sandlin said one of the guards declared, “I hate all white people and your honky religion.”
Yes, I think we all understood that these blacks would serve as willing torturers, after having been hopped up on hate for years on end.
This has gotten Lovecraftian, the way these primitives have been incited by a satanic force.
I doubt there are even any white guards at the jail.
Defense attorneys for Samsel and Barnett confirmed the episodes described in court by Sandlin, which they said they learned about from their clients, clients’ family members and other attorneys.
“There is a pattern of abuse and of targeting of the defendants who are being held pursuant to what happened on Jan. 6,” said Joseph McBride of New York, a defense lawyer for Barnett. “It is targeted. It is ruthless. It is nonstop.”
Steven Metcalf, a lawyer for Samsel, said that after his client complained last month about slow delivery of toilet paper, he was zip-tied, moved to a cell outside the view of surveillance cameras and brutally beaten by guards.
“I have seen Ryan. He has two black eyes to this day, two weeks later. All the skin is ripped off both wrists, which shows the zip ties and how tight they were,” said Metcalf, also from New York. “Other inmates said his face looked like a tomato that was stomped on.”
“We intend on filing a lawsuit against the two specific guards and the facility responsible for this scenario because Ryan Samsel did not deserve to get targeted and treated like this,” Metcalf added.
Another attorney for Samsel, Elisabeth Pasqualini, said that her client was moved to another “undisclosed” location earlier on Tuesday and that the episode in which he was injured last month was under investigation by the FBI.
Nearly all the Jan. 6 defendants who have reached Washington and remain in custody are being held at the Correctional Treatment Facility, a complex in southeast D.C. typically used for prisoners with health needs or who require isolation from the general jail population. About 40 Capitol riot defendants are currently at the CTF, defense lawyers said.
That is to say: they’ve created a special prison for political prisoners in the Capitol.
This is so they can be tortured.
A D.C. jail spokesperson and an attorney who represents the D.C. government on such issues did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the allegations. Jail officials have previously informed the court that the Jan. 6 defendants have all been held in “restrictive housing” in order to protect them from potential altercations with other inmates.
“For their own safety and security, all of the detainees who are being held at the Jail in connection with the events that occurred on January 6, 2021 at the Capitol Building have been placed in restrictive housing,” Deputy Warden Michelle Jones said in a declaration submitted last month to Judge Royce Lamberth, who is presiding over a separate case related to Jan. 6.
One veteran D.C. defense attorney said many Capitol rioters were new to the District’s jail system and might believe they’re being specifically targeted when they’re simply unfamiliar with being in jail at all — particularly in the harsh conditions of 23-hour-a-day isolation.
We should note that most people who have been in prison for decades are not familiar with extended 23-hour-a-day isolation. Solitary confinement is internationally recognized as a form of torture. The United Nations classifies anything more than 15 days as torture.
So no, most people wouldn’t be familiar with this, and they would view it as targeting because it is targeting.
POLITICO just as easily could have not reported this. No one else is reporting it. It’s clear that they wanted some mainstream news outlet to report it, so that people know that it’s real. They are trying to inspire fear in people.
There are a lot more of us than there are of them, so this system can only work on fear.
People are generally very afraid of torture, and of prison generally. I’ve found most people are afraid of homosexual torture specifically, though that is actually a very rare thing. Homosexual torture is the rarest of the tortures. What is seen most in torture is psychological: isolation and targeted beatings, as described above.
Maybe they will do some weird Guantanamo Bay type stuff with people hooked up to car batteries with hoods over their heads and release pictures of it.
(I’m not going to post the pictures from Guantanamo.)
So, this is a reminder: you have to overcome fear. They want you to be paralyzed thinking of all the things they could do to you. Don’t think too much about it. If you are thinking about much, then you need to revisit and recalibrate your relationship with Jesus Christ.
Fear is the biggest thing holding back the people. Not just fear of torture, obviously – that is a very specific fear. The most general fear is fear of what other people think, and fear of loss of connection to society. Then there is the fear of death, which is also very general.
Modern men have a lot of fear surrounding women. That is a fear that is both specific and general.
You have to process all of this fear. You have to realize that you have an eternal soul, and none of what you are experiencing here is going to mean much in the long run. In the long run, what will matter is the decisions that you make. That’s why we’re all here: to make decisions.
If those decisions are made out of fear, then the results will be very bad. You have to make decisions based on what is right. Don’t be stupid or reckless, but do not submit to this Beast System.
Your only job is to make the right decisions. Everything else is in God’s hands, and you just have to accept that. Compromising with the devil will lead to a much worse outcome than your worst fears.
If you’re able to accept that your only job is to make the right decisions, and the outcome is outside of your hands – then you will have real freedom.
