Death Blog Texas Death Row USA February 11th, 2009 3:45pm


Welcome to my nightmare. The insanity tour continues It has been a few days since I’ve last wrote down the events of my existence, or has it been weeks? Time has been all one big blur to me here lately. With the passing of Grandma and all the other issues I won’t go into, the level’s of anxiety and stress have taken their toll upon me. But I’m still in control or at least that’s what the voices I hear are telling me. We have had a few more executions since I’ve last sat down with this pen and we have had a lot of gassing of humans down in the hole where I still reside ~ F-Pod~ . Just the other days they gassed the same one who had took gas in the face over the spoiled beans, but this time the gas had been can’s aimed into his cell. You could hear the orders being give then ~ “WHOOOOSH” ~ one long burst of gas, then as a minute or so passed you’d hear one more burst ~ “WHOOOOSH” ~. A few men coughing… silence, then the final order was given and the last 6 or 7 second long burst of chemical agents were administered ~ “WHOOOOSH” ~. And the 5-man team was sent in, full riot gear, helmets, gas masks and shields. You can hear the struggle, the grunts and bodies slamming into one another as the 5-man team runs into the dark cell of the condemned, only to cause harm and take a set of handcuffs. The fight is over and the man is left in that small cell full of gas, skin on fire, injured, lungs burning for fresh air. Another day on Texas Death Row. Now the reason most people down here “jack” handcuffs, dayrooms, rec cages, food slots and hallways is to attempt to resolve some sort of issue. So this act of “jacking” is to get the rank to come speak to you. If not for thyis way, one would never get anything taken care of. We are trapped in these isolation cells and it’s our only means of action. Well peaceful action that is. The only thing this administration understands is violence. I’ve seen it with my own eyes. Sad but true! The squeaky wheel gets greased! Now let me take a few minutes and go back to January 13th, I wrote about the raid team and how my legal work had been tossed out and the way my cell was destroyed, (this blog should be in archives). Well I had to take this issue to our grievance system, had I not, I would not be able to complain to Huntsville because they always say a grievance must be filed in order to attempt to resolve issue at Unit level. Well folks, the Unit level is a joke, as I will show you. Then you can be your own judge! Now we have two options of grievance, Step one and then Step two. If Step two is activated it’s because the offender is not satisfied with Step one’s response, so one files Step two and attaches the original complaint, step one, and this activates another investigation but this time it involves the invisible people from Huntsville, so that is what I’ve done, or am in the process of doing since I was given my response to my complaint in last night’s mail. A joke if I’ve ever seen one. I’m going to copy down each word I’ve wrote down and I’ll copy the looney-tunes reply down so you all can see, and as soon as I get my step two back I’ll send both of the originals to be put on the site for the world to see. This is Polunsky’s grievance system. Mark Stroman #999409 Grievance #2009081808 Officers involved: Date received – January 15th 2009 Sgt Seales- death row Date Due – February 24th 2009 CO III Coker Grievance code – 518 CO IV White Investigator- I1582 Returned to ne – February 9th 2009 (The three officers above saw the aftermath) Full report is as follows: Yesterday 01-12-09 the new Gestapo Raid Squad, or as they call it, The Regional Shake Down Team, raided our section. During this raid my cell was totally and completely destroyed. Legal work was throw away, either by design or neglect. What legal work is not missing is dumped into a big pile in the floor. I have a death sentence so I have a lot of legal work and it has to be in order. It’s now ruined and hundreds of pages are missing! I also had all of my personal photos dumped on the floor, I also had boot prints on my sheets and photos. The raid team walked on all of my belongings. Before I would go into my cell I called for rank, who was a death row sergeant, Sergeant Seales. I also had Officer White and Officer Coker by my side. They witnessed the aftermath destruction the regional raid squad had done. Sgt Seales then arrived and he also witnessed the destruction. He said it was ordered by Huntsville and “He” couldn’t do anything about it. So Huntsville ordered the raid team to step on my photos and sheets and ordered my legal work to be thrown away and to destroy my cell?? I don’t believe that at all. End of my statement Now folks there’s two more slots on the form, one is for me and its action requested to resolve your complaint, and the other is grievance response. My request is as follows: Stop destroying my cell when it’s searched or bring chemicals and execute me on the spot, this is wrong and uncalled for. Their response is as follows: Your grievance has been investigated, Lieutenant Price stated that property is properly handled during cell searches. If property is damaged or confiscated, the proper paperwork is completed. No action warranted. Signature authority – Warden Lester. See folks, not one issue was addressed in their looney-tunes reply. This is what we must deal with on Unit level. It’s a cover-up! Well folks, you just witnessed what the Polunsky Unit grievance office does. Waste of tax payers money. So I’ll file the step two and dial you in on their response in about 35 days when it’s returned to me from Huntsville, if at all.

  1. How to Contact a TDCJ Ombudsman

    (Please submit inquiries in writing)
    For expediency, it is best to attempt to resolve issues and obtain information at the unit or parole office level:

    Ombudsman Coordinator
    General Issues concerning the agency’s operation and policy and procedures.
    P.O. Box 99, Huntsville, TX 77342-0099
    (936) 437-8035 (936) 437-8067 fax

  2. I encouraged a friend at Coffield to file a grivance when they took his legal papers. He filed a second grievance too. Amzaing how they avoid direct questions! He even asked for a lie detection test and said he would pay for it plus he had two witness statements! It did not do any good. I find it unbelievable how they can lie and back eachother up and the Ombudsman goes along with it. He never got his papers back. First they stated they never took them and later stated they returned them. How can you return something that was never taken? The Ombudsman stated these findings to me in writting!!!
