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.

Police Brutality Watch: Gerster's March 11 Court Date

Here's the
record of Gerster's Feb 10 court appearance.

There's a comprehensive Pre-trial Conference, March 11, 8:15am,
Maricopa County Central Courthouse (W. Washington St.)

The last one I was at was in the East tower.

Please turn out and show support for abused prisoners.

FYI: As of yet, it does not appear that MCSO detention officer Alan Keesee has been charged for his assaultive behavior. The ball is in the Maricopa County Attorney's court now, according to the MCSO. Let them know what you think about that case, too. Their contact info is:

301 W. Jefferson Street /Phoenix, Arizona 85003 / (602) 506-3411
