Diesel Therapy: Torturing Prisoners Legally Takes The Bus

Transit, better known as "diesel therapy" to the feds, is maybe the worst part of being incarcerated. Imagine being handcuffed with a chain around your waist securing the handcuffs to your stomach area. You can't move your arms up and down or side to side. Your feet are shackled, limiting you to baby steps. Now get on a bus. And then be stuck on the bus with similarly shackled convicts forever. (It starts at three or four in the morning, and 12­16--hour days are the norm.) You can try and guess where you're going, but you never will. After five institutions and nine years in the feds, I've learned to dread transit more than anything.

The Bureau of Prisons can never do anything easily. Like take you from point A to point B. Instead, they drag you through a spiraling maze of transitional moves with zero logic. What's the method to the madness? Is it intentional chaos-pure torture to keep us beat down, controlled, docile? Only the BOP knows for certain.

Recently I was transferred from FCI Fort Dix to FCI Fairton on a closer supervision request. While my journey was not a diesel therapy nightmare, it was definitely a mini-diesel. I packed my stuff on December 31st. On the 2nd of January I was called up at 8:00 a.m. I got processed and placed in the bullpen with 10 other prisoners. I proceeded to sit there until 2:00 p.m., when we were sent back to the compound. Oops-we were leaving tomorrow. We had spent the whole day in a tiny holding cell for no reason. We were sent back to the compound with no sheets, no blankets, no toothpaste, no soap, no toilet paper, and no change of clothes. And we had no property-that was already boxed up.

The next morning, we were called up again. The whole processing procedure was completed for the second time, and finally, in the late afternoon, we heard the clank of chains. Salvation had come in the form of the Lewisburg BOP bus crew.

We were strip-searched, given new clothes, and shackled. I knew FCI Fairton was only two hours south of Fort Dix so I figured on a short trip. I asked the CO and didn't get the answer I wanted. "You missed your stop, buddy," he said. "We're going to Lewisburg." He smiled while telling me this, like it was some big joke and I was the punch line. I was going to Lewisburg. The famous penitentiary and a favorite holdover spot of the BOP.

So into Pennsylvania I went. A five-hour bus ride, followed by the whole processing/screening routine again. You would think after your initial screening they would already have a record of you, but the BOP is not only barbaric, it's archaic. Most files are on paper. You have one that travels with you, and at every place you stop, they create a new one for you.

Five days in Lewisburg. No phone, minimal reading material, and one TV for 50 people-complete and utter boredom. The whole ordeal requires a willed suppression of instinct. Every night is a toss up to see who'll be on the outgoing bus the next day. If your name is on the list they post at 3:00 a.m., you're stoked. If not, look forward to another day of nothing. The only advantage of being in the holdover is hot meals, because when you're on that bus and in the bullpens they kill you with baloney-and-cheese sandwiches with milk.

Finally, my name was on the list. I was out of there. I figured I would be in Fairton that night. I went though the same routine again: bullpen, strip-search, change clothes, get chained up, 4:00 a.m. wake up, many hours spent in the holding cell. Then it was finally time and we were marched out into the snow with no jacket (BOP policy, I guess). We ended up at Allenwood. I was getting the grand tour of the whole industrial prison complex. Next we processed to FDC Philly, then we entered New Jersey and drove right through it. I couldn't believe it. It seemed I'd missed my stop again.

Then we were in New York. MDC Brooklyn. This was a new twist. I'd always heard this place was pre-trial. I had never been there before, and I hope to hell I never go there again.

We were herded off the bus like cattle for the umpteenth time, prodded into this tiny little processing bullpen, and held there forever. No hot meals, either­­more bag lunches. They didn't have any bed space in the units so they put me in the hole.

Two days I was on a bus supposedly bound for Fairton. And you'll never guess where I ended up. Eight days of traveling, after having traversed three states and going five hours west into PA and then six hours east into NYC, I was now right back at the gates of FCI Fort Dix. Right where I started.

Two hours later, I was in Fairton, where I had to get screened and processed all over. I was ready to hit the pound, hook up with some friends, but­­boom-they threw me in the hole, where I waited for four days to see the captain so he could decide if he would let me on his compound. I guess the regional director didn't check with him before they designated me there.

Now, as I'm writing this, not even two months later, I'm back in the hole. Under SIS investigation. Wondering if my journey is about to start anew. Check with me two years from now. Maybe I'll have some horror stories to tell. Until then, wish me luck, because this diesel therapy **** can drive you nuts.

Diesel Therapy: U.S. Marshals Oversee Medieval Torture Caravan


    http://educate-yourself.org/cn/dieseltherapy.shtml

    http://www.uwsa.com/Uwsadisclosure.prison.html

    Excerpt:

    The harassment and torture that befell Congressman George Hansen came from prison officials, in the form of neglect for serious medical problems and health hazards in the prison work place. The torture also came from the Federal Marshals who cruelly transported him from one prison to another.

    Political prisoners and those who are considered trouble makers arc given what prisoners call, "diesel therapy".

    "Diesel therapy" consists of being put on diesel buses or airplanes and being transported from prison to prison for weeks and months at a time.

    On the surface it sounds benign. What could be the problem with making a prisoner ride in a bus for hours at a time?

    Torture American Style

    Before the prisoner is put on the bus, he is put in handcuffs and shackles (leg irons). The handcuffs are tightened by a black box that stiffens the chains and puts the wrists in a 90 degree bind that painfully cuts circulation and damages the nerves. It takes several weeks for the circulation and nerves to return to normal. The handcuffs are connected with chains to a waist chain, which is in turn connected by another chain to the shackles which go around the ankles The prisoner can barely move once the shackling process is complete.

    He is then placed in a small seat on a bus or airplane. (ED: George Hansen is a BIG man, standing well over 6'-3" and -- before his ordeal -- tipping the scales at well over 220 pounds.) Because of the shackles, the prisoner is forced to sit in one position for up to 20 hours at a time. And the guards will rarely go to the trouble of unshackling a prisoner. Prisoners who understand "diesel therapy" know that "fasting" is the only way to handle the ordeal without messing or wetting yourself.

    But even those who are smart enough to abstain from food and drink, still have to suffer the stench of urine and feces which soon fills the bus or plane.

    One other painful aspect of diesel therapy is the shoes that prisoners are forced to wear. They become too small. The cramped position and tight shackles cause the feet and ankles to swell. The shackles cut into the legs and cut off circulation. The blood pools in the feet and causes the feet to swell. The toes are forced up against the tops of the too small shoes, and unbelievable pressure is put on the toenails. The toenails soon become deformed, infected and painful.

    Each day the metal shackles are put back onto raw and infected legs before the prisoner boards the bus. After weeks and months of diesel therapy, the ankles and shins have raw, infected and open wounds that will not heal.

    Hour after hour, the prisoner sits in a cramped & painful position, with shackles cutting into already infected, raw flesh. Arthritis and bursitis compound the misery of the prisoners. The ingrown, infected toenails, which are jammed inside of purposely small shoes, cripple the prisoner to the point that he can barely walk or move when he is finally released from the shackles.

    During the weeks and months of diesel therapy, the prisoner is out of contact with the rest of the world. In the case of Congressman Hansen, his wife did not know if he was dead or alive. His lawyer could not find him and therefore could not file court papers on time. Even the members of congress who were still trying to help him, could not locate him. During his diesel therapy" he disappeared into the black hole dug and run by the United States Marshals.

    After "diesel therapy", Hansen was forced to operate on his feet himself. His toenails were so deformed that they pointed straight up. He could not wear shoes without excruciating pain. The only remedy that was open to him was to pull the toenails out by the roots. Our prisoners of war in SE Asia had their fingernails and toenails pulled out by their torturers. Congressman Hansen had to become his own torturer in an effort to stop the pain.

    Several weeks ago, Congressman Hansen was testifying before his former colleagues in the House of Representatives. He told the story of his trip into Iran during the Iran hostage crisis in 1979. He was the only United States official to get into Iran to try to negotiate an end to the crisis.

    While he was there, he was shown the horrible human suffering that was inflicted upon the Iranian people by the Shah of Iran and his secret police.

    He told his former colleagues about the horrors of the Shah's torture chambers. Ankles that had been smashed by heavy clubs. Legs that had been smashed and permanently scarred. Hands and feet that had no nails because they were repeatedly pulled out.

    Then he stood up and walked around in front of his table. Leaning lightly on the table, he pulled up his pant leg and showed his former colleagues the raw, red scars on his own legs -- scars that stretched many inches, from his ankles up his shin bones. He told his former colleagues about his toenails, which have never grown back properly. He ended his "show and tell" session by informing the House that they did not have to travel to foreign countries to witness torture. All they had to do is visit any American prison and they would quickly find the effects of purposeful abuse and neglect on certain prisoners.

    If his former colleagues have any sense, they will quickly reform the prison system, before any more of them end up there.

    The scars on his legs and the lack of toenails were minor problems for Hansen. The major pain came from his teeth and deteriorating bones. These problems came from hazardous chemicals he was forced to work around during his job assignment in the prison power plant. The chemicals caused his bones to weaken and his teeth to become infected and turn to mush. The pain' of abscessed teeth was unbearable. To be able to function each day, without even an aspirin to dull the pain, he picked up a plastic cap used to splice electric wires. He placed the cap in the infected area and bit down on it all day and night.

    During his four years in prison, he lost most of his teeth through willful neglect on the part of the prison officials.

    Hansen was forced to sell his homes in Virginia and Idaho. Everything he and his wife had accumulated during years of hard work went to lawyers or to pay the fine. Even though his retirement was not supposed to be touched, through some nefarious deal, it was tapped to pay fines, thereby denying his wife the means to live. She was approaching sixty, had a heart condition and diabetes, but she was put out of her home and didn't even have the money to rent an apartment. With the help of their children and a job, she just barely made ends meet until Hansen was released.

    They are now in their 60s and they are starting over with nothing. He still has health problems associated with prison life, and still needs further dental work. He drives a leased Honda and lives with his wife in a rented apartment in Pocatello, Idaho.

If They Can Do It

To A Congressman

Dept. of Finance/Judge Lodge

Linked to Hansen Nightmare

By Investigative Reporter Edward Snook

of the Oregon Observer

 Reprinted from the

Oregon Observer

with permission

In the March edition of The Oregon Observer we informed our readership of the accomplishments made on behalf of all Americans by Congressman George Hansen. The following article tells how a criminally corrupt Federal Judge by the name of Edward Lodge with the help of numerous other Federal and State accomplices repaid Hansen for all of his efforts.

 
Diesel Therapy

Diesel therapy - a prison term reserved for the most inhumane, degrading and painful of punishment; normally reserved for the most violent and uncontrollable of prisoners.

A prisoner is shackled at the feet and handcuffed at the wrists, reinforced with a box-like structure which stiffens the chains and locks the wrists at a 90-degree angle. The handcuffs are connected to a waist chain that is connected to another chain which connects the shackles. Once this shackling is complete, a prisoner can barely move. The tightened manacles pinch the nerves and restrict the flow of blood causing severe pain and swelling. Legs swelling with blood are particularly damaging to the feet, as toenails under pressure from blood-blisters press up against shoes for long periods of time and soon become infected and deformed, causing such excruciating pain that they require surgery or the pulling of the toenails out by the roots.

Diesel therapy gets its name, not from the "cruel and unusual" bondage, but from being forced into bus after bus and onto plane after plane, shackled as described, and being shuttled from one prison to another, for weeks on end, 20 hours per day in chains, for no other reason than to cause pain and suffering and give the prisoner a "message."

Welcome to diesel therapy and the world of seven-term Congressman George Hansen who was found guilty in the court-room of the infamous Federal Judge Edward Lodge on bogus charges of bank fraud which were manipulated into an issue by the Idaho Department of Finance illegally using the same agents previously employed by the IRS in their failed attempt to quote "get Hansen."

People who have been reading past editions of The Idaho Observer and The Oregon Observer will recall that the Judge Lodge/Idaho Department of Finance connection has already been uncovered in the bogus securities laws violations charges levied against Boise businessman and winemaker Petro (Pete) Eliopulos, who said; "After Ed Snook of The Oregon Observer and I met with Hansen and he told me in a six-hour meeting what had happened to him, I was more shaken than I have ever been in my life. If (West One) bank officers Knox and Neaville had not subsequently been convicted of crimes which came to light in the bogus investigations of me and my businesses, they could have done to me what they did to Hansen," said Eliopulos, who was shocked that a U.S. Representative, or anybody for that matter, could be treated this way in America.

What could an esteemed member of the U.S. Congress have done to deserve such treatment?

Diesel Therapy:

(10). Diesel Therapy even though expressly illegal; is alive and well within the government agencies such as US Marshall Service, FBI, Bureau of Prisons (BOP) and popular with many Federal Prosecutors and Judges; Diesel therapy is when a prisoner is either coded by a special number in his or her records. Or non-traceable messages, mostly e-mails requesting harsh treatment and prolonged routing of a prisoner in custody.

(11). In the BOP for example dieseling would be; a targeted prisoner is being transferred from one prison to another 800 miles away. The fastest route available might be a prison jet in its weekly flights always lands at an airport 60 miles from the prisoners destination prison. The fastest way in which most prisoners travel from one prison to another; is the BOP buses the prisoner to the nearest airport that transports prisoners. A US Marshall; controlled jet airliner takes the prisoner to an airport near the prison the prisoner is being transferred to. BOP buses are waiting to take the prisoner to the new prison he or she has been assigned. This transfer is usually fast, and all comes about within a day or two.

(12). However, not for the special prisoner the BOP targets for added punishment. These targeted prisoners are given a long route, sometimes

weeks; sometimes months; to arrive at a prison destination 800 miles away. And in the process, messages are received by the hosting prisons in route, to treat the prisoner harshly and delay departures.

Example of a normal prisoner-not targeted for dieseling: A prisoner is being transferred from a Dallas , TX area prison to a Tampa, FL area prison. The BOP has weekly flights to hosting area airports such as Oklahoma City and Tampa Airport. A BOP bus would pick up the prisoner at the Dallas area prison; bus the prisoner to Oklahoma Airport where the BOP has a prison called a (holdover). If the bus arrived at Oklahoma early enough to catch the plane to Tampa, the prisoner would be at the Tampa area prison same day. If not, the prisoner might have to stay at the Oklahoma holdover prison for a short time ( usually between one and five days).

(13). A targeted prisoner would not be routed in such a manner. A targeted prisoner might be routed to be picked up in the Dallas area prison and then put in the hole one or more days. Then another BOP bus would pick up the prisoner, and take the prisoner to yet another prison before the prisoner got to Oklahoma. If the prisoner was lucky the next BOP bus would take him out of the hole and drop him at the Oklahoma holdover. Because this prisoner is one of the many targeted; he will stay at the Oklahoma holdover from one to six weeks. This targeted prisoner then may be flown to Atlanta holdover, (which is deplorable and inhumane) and again held from one to six weeks. This same targeted prisoner may again be flown to the Tallahassee holdover where he will be held between one to six weeks until a BOP bus picks him up to take him to the Tampa area prison. The whole prison transfer, for the targeted prisoner, could take four months and even longer.

What’s wrong with that, enemies of your

they are only “prisoners” government

officials

(14). A great majority of these targeted prisoners are prisoners that the BOP; prosecutors; and federal judges don’t like for personal reasons. The targeted prisoner may have one or more suits against the BOP for employee atrocities. Or, even a prosecutor or federal judge. A prisoner can only file a suit for medical neglect, or prisoner abuse at the court nearest the prison he or she is in. By transferring and dieseling the prisoner during a suit, the prisoner may miss filings with the court. May loose an attorney as he may have to find another attorney and transfer his case to the new state he is being transferred to. If the case is not transferred; the prisoner looses personal touch with his local attorney that visited him. Most law suits fall apart with enough dieseling and the Bop, prosecutors and judges know it.

(15). Dieseling is a hardship upon each family member. Most cannot visit because of distance and the BOP makes sure each telephone call hurts the family pocketbook. A 15 minute telephone call from a holdover prison, local or otherwise; costs the prisoner family an average of nearly $9.00 per call. A prisoner calling once a day to his loved ones, will cost the family member $270.00 per month.

(16). In addition; the food at the holdovers, is for the most part, “deplorable”. Any meaningful medical services is equally as bad and any exercise area is a farce at the best. A law library is another farce. Plus these targeted prisoner will for the most part be treated harshly by staff.

????? What did they do to Kimball????

(17). At 7:00 a.m. on May 26, 2005 Texarkana prison told Kimball he was leaving immediately; and again, Kimball was refused his destination by all staff. Kimball was put on a bus and taken to Saegorville Prison outside of Dallas, TX. When he arrived at Saegorville; prison officials refused to provide Kimball his medication that was put on board in Texarkana. Also, the officer there took away Kimball’s lunch/ dinner they gave him before he had a chance to eat it. Kimball was put into a hole cell, while guards refused to allow Kimball a towel, wash cloth, tooth brush, tooth paste, or to take a shower. (please be informed that a prisoner in BOP transit is allowed “no” personal possessions at all). ( not a toothbrush, nor even a pencil).

(18). The next morning without washing, or being able to brush his teeth; Kimball was picked up and transported most of the day, ending up in Oklahoma holdover prison. Kimball was immediately informed by officials at Oklahoma that his final destination was Jesup Prison Camp; but it may take him a long time to get there. Gee!! I wonder why???

“Now” Kimball knew what the corrupt trio did.

(19). A prisoner, that is “not” going to a camp, but being transferred to a low, medium, or high security prison; is put in hand and feet shackles, placed in a BOP steel barred bus; then taken in shackles and put on a plane. However “not” prisoners being transferred to a camp. In fact! BOP policy states that camp prisoners are “not” to be placed with, or around, any low-medium or high security prisoner. We already know some BOP employees don’t obey even “their” laws.

(20). It clearly appears: That the trio of Administrator Mulisnic; Unit Manager Ms. Anthony; Case Manager Strong; and who knows how many others, came up with “their” perfect plan to get back at Kimball for criticizing Texarkana and some of their employees for acting unlawfully.

Another pic of a board meeting


The perfect

Retaliatory plan

(21). Diesel Kimball: The “plot” conversations (meeting), would have taken place, very similar to the following.

BOP Employee:

Kimball knows, if he is going to a camp; he will be told what camp, where, when he is leaving; given a furlough and put on a Greyhound bus.

Kimball also knows if he is being transferred to another “low” prison he will “not” be told where he is going, or when he will leave Texarkana; and that he will be sent on a bus in shackles; transported by the BOP and US Marshals.

If we tell Kimball he is going to a camp, and we are providing BOP transportation for him, with low, med., and high security prisoners; Kimball will make a stink about it, and we could be in trouble. Probably we won’t get in trouble; as we can pretty well do anything we want. Policy and law be dammed.

To play it safe, and give him a little dieseling as a good bye present from us at Texarkana; if we don’t tell him where he is going; Kimball will believe he is going to his fourth low security prison, and expect BOP transportation; shackles and all. No problems! Is that approach agreeable by all. (everyone agrees)

Great! Now you people take care of the dieseling route the BOP is to provide, and I’ll take care of the rest. And I’ll make sure no staff member tells Kimball where he is going.
