Step 1 Grievance filed 12-27-11
Who did you talk to: Capt. Patrick Dickens.
What was his response? "This is out of my hands. It's the major's call."
State your grievance:
Retaliation by Virgil McMullen, Major. Since 10-17-11 I've filed numerous complaints (on McMullen's illegal
actions, conditions & policy). Answering none, McMullen siccs the skakedown team on me who tell me that
McMullen has a hard on for me and has vowed revenge. On 12-13-11 I filed complaints via letter on McMullen.
On 12-14-11 Prisoners Cobb 467 and Wilkens 533 assaulted staff. McMullen falsely accused me of a vague
"conspiracy" involvement using an inappropriate I-203 process, punishing me with no due process by total
deprivation of all property, leaving me naked for eight days in a feces-contaminated cell despite the fact that both
Cobb and Wilkens loudly proclaimed to the major on the run that I had NO involvement in their actions whatsoever.
Held incommunicado and denied any measure of life's basic necessities my general and legal mail was interdicted
and confiscated after opening and has not been returned to me along with my legal material. (Dictionary and
encyclopedia), fan and Vatican rosary. I was subjected to sleep deprivation by incessant cell "searches" every two
(2) hours, gas purge fans sucking freezing cold air into my cell intermittently, 30 minute interval door beating
"verbal response" checks and lights locked on 24/7. Subjected to these actions and conditions intended as torture I
was left naked in a freezing cold cell without even a roll of toilet paper or a bar of soap. When defecating I was
forced to clean my anus with my hands and water, then use my hands to eat food loaf, on which I was improperly
placed for an imagined offense. Pulled out of my cell naked and paraded naked every two (2) hours before
(sometimes female) officers, during strip searches ordered to put my hands/fingers in my mouth and pull out my
The back wall of my cell is an outside wall and is freezing, my steel bunk anchored to it. Unable, with no mattress or with no mattress or
bedding, to lie down and sleep on the freezing steel bunk, with temperatures in the 30's I was forced to constantly
walk back and forth in the cell to try to maintain my body warmth until after six (6) days I collapsed from
exhaustion. When officers could not rouse me from my fugue-like stupor they threatened to gas me and turned on
the gas purge fans intermittently all night to "freeze that bitch out and wake him up!"
Placed handcuffed (behind my back) in the shower stall and told "this is a use-of-force shower" by Sgt. Mooring.
I was soaked naked with cold water, denied a towel and placed wet and freezing back in my cell. The gas purge fans were
turned on to "blow dry" me when the outside temperature was in the 30's. While Mooring laughed and said "now
that's what I call efficiency!"
No, now that's what I call an attitude adjustment! So I guess Hank isn't having as much fun as he'd like to be having. Doesn't sound like he's too popular with the staff.
