Re: “Department of Correction restricts inmate mail to three pages, no large cards

Its 3 pages in the Arkansas Department of corrections
The envelope is one piece front n back of another and another they are only allowed 3 sheets of paper. Its not easy keeping someone serving already 16 years positive at all

Re: “Department of Correction restricts inmate mail to three pages, no large cards

No most of the drugs at Varner come from the officers. Ive actually witnessed a woman in the restroom disposing of substance of some nature in rubber condoms and reported it. Nothing was done. FYI FOR ALL YOU THAT HAVE FRIENDS OR LOVED ONES AT VARNER IN Grady... THE ENVELOPE IS CONCIDERED one piece of paper so after I received 13 letters back, wasted postage, 6 greeting cards because they were too big for the copy machine. I have a serious issue with the fact that we take photos and pay for them to sent to our family friend. My minor children are in them. Before only the inmate had the colored photo. Now Im being told by the head of the mail room the originals are for sure being shredded
Shredding? How do I know? The i mate since the 80s have enjoyed there 5 photos now its a black n white photo copy no color which in some photos he cant even tell what it is, not to mention they are shredding my money. That is scketchy to me so no more photos. Anyone else that can say for sure our childrens photos are being shredded?

Re: “Board of Corrections discusses expanding segregated cells

The new Step down program according to the warden Newley retired, but returned to the Varner Supwr maximum facility has been with ADC for I know 15 plus years. Inmates being put in segregated housing. Complying with there hosing plan gaining the highest class with no problems, to go to classification and be told by the warden they have too many followers and put in the step down program. This is a new program designed by ADC Director Wendy Kelley.
Why have segregation have A HOUSING GOAL for the inmate to reach, they accomplish that and the head of classification looks at the inmate and says Im sorry, its bigger than me. Thank god for freedom of speech because if they put undercover agents in the system like they should they would see and be able to weed out the employees with the NON- rehabilitation mindset. I know they are criminals I just want to know why give them a goal to reach they do that to return back to general population to have a veteran ADC WArden who only knows you by your past jacket. Never served at the same facility as this inmate in all these years of his service, I am caucasdion my husband and my girls visit an inmate like a brother to me. He is african American. After he sat in a one man cell for 6 calendar years holding the highest class 1 when we returned from over seas I learned of this. It was handled and he was released to general population which was great for him. Until an assistant warden who had it out for the inmate, and after I had visited one time alone being a white married female and approached inappropriately by a Cummings officer whom was working Varner visitation that day due to under staff. Told me to stick to my own kind there is a color In your skin issue at the ADC. Our family doesnt see color, gender, religion. I was raised to treat others with kindness. The ADC Needs to look at all of it
I made the mistake of reporting this to internal affairs at the Adc in pine bluff. Was told the cameras were down that day and it was a he said she said unless I cane in for a lie detector test. I replied set the appointment for me Ill come in if it will keep this from happening to another female period. My mistake I didnt know upon arrival to Adc to take the voice analysis test I was asked to sign a volunteer waiver. HUGE MISTAKE!
Shortly after within weeks the inmate was accused of being inappropriate with a female offfcer? Not the inmates MO! Weeks later the asst warden hummed him up on an alleged threat to a female officer with the GED teacher (in the kitchen) being the only witness.
I spoke with Mr. Miller that day because he was working at another unit. Apparently he didnt yet know the plan and told me the inmate never did such accusations. A week later Mr millers statement read the opposite. Months later the asst warden was escorted off the Varner maximum security unit arrested by the FBI.
