I began this blog in May 2009 following the death of Marcia Powell at Perryville State Prison in Goodyear, Arizona. It is not intended to prescribe the path that leads to freedom from the prison industrial complex.

Rather, these are just my observations in arguably the most racist, fascist, militaristic state in the nation at a critical time in history for a number of intersecting liberation movements. From Indigenous resistance to genocidal practices, to the fight over laws like SB1070 and the ban on Ethnic Studies, Arizona is at the center of many battles for human rights, and thus the struggle for prison abolition as well - for none are free until all are. I retired the blog in APRIL 2013.

Scott Watch: Keep calling Epps and Barbour

Nancy Lockhart sent a message to the members of Free The Scott Sisters.


Subject: Please Call And E-mail Christopher Epps (Prison Commissioner) & Haley Barbour (Governor of MS)

Samples of the e-malis that I've sent are below. While calling, I've used basically the same format. Many people have asked for a sample but, please feel free to write your own. Contact information for both Haley Barbour's Assistant and Christopher Epps are within this e-mail as well as, in the discussion section of the FB group. In addition, FB has taken about 9 hours to send messages and several persons have indicated that they are receiving 4 or 5 of the same messages, this is beyond our control and thank you for understanding.

Commissioner Epps:

I am respectfully writing to request that you allow Jamie Scott to receive the medical care that she is deserving of and entitled to.  A specialist is willing to volunteer his time behind the walls to examine Jamie and I am asking that this is permitted.

Please don't allow this young otherwise healthy daughter, sister, mother and friend to die unnecessarily.  I am sure you know that time is of the essence so please do not wait; her life is at stake.


Governor Barbour:

Jamie Scott # 19197 and Gladys Scott #19142 have been incarcerated over 15 years for a crime in which $11 dollars was netted. Witnesses stated that they were coerced and threatened to implicate the sisters. Please commute the sentences of both Jamie and Gladys Scott. Presently, Jamie is fighting for her life with kidney failure and is receiving inadequate medical care.
