Jail Guards Caught Smuggling in Heroin, Impersonating Cops, Preventing Inmate Mail

Published by:

You won’t believe this. Even I can’t believe it. I had to stop investigating this story because the rabbit hole of corruption was so deep that I lost sight of where it began. So let’s start at the end and work backwards…

Chris Brackett, the head of the jail in Dover, New Hampshire decided to impose a policy of obstructing all inmate mail. No more letters from the outside world. An article published by the Portsmouth Herald cites recent inmate overdoses as the potential justification for this excessively restrictive action.

There are two problems with that theory. First, the jail doesn’t allow packages of any sort, including birthday cards or anything other than ink and paper (at least, until last week’s new policy took effect). Second, it is policy for jail employees to physically open and check the contents of all inmate mail for any contraband and remove it before it reaches the inside. There is no way inmates were receiving heroin through ink and paper letters, and preventing their delivery will have no effect on inmate overdoses.

How are the overdoses happening? To find that answer, we need look no further than an article by the Portsmouth Herald from May in which one of the jail guards was caught bringing heroin into the housing unit of the jail. Case closed. It’s not the mail. It’s your employees.

Who’s in charge of hiring these top-notch individuals working at the Dover jail? Well, none other than Bruce Pelkie, the Superintendent of Strafford County Jails, who was himself arrested earlier this year on felony charges of impersonating an officer. Apparently while enjoying more than a year on paid vacation on taxpayer’s dime, Bruce thought it would be great fun to get his personal vehicle outfitted with red and blue police lights and pull people over. Is he a cop? No. Does he have the authority to pull anyone over? No. Then surely the local police would notice this happening and stop him? Nope. A State Trooper was finally the one to catch the Superintendent of the jails pulling people over in his personal car. And all while he is out on “administrative leave” for what he claims are medical reasons. Surely this means he loses his job, his pay, and the taxpayer-funded medical insurance he’s been collecting? Also no. The superintendent of the jails continues to receive paychecks for not doing his job, and committing crimes on the side.

There are countless more crimes and stories of corruption emanating from this public embarrassment of a facility — too many to list in this one article. I had no idea what a can of worms I’d be opening when I dug into the first story about jail guards obstructing inmate mail. Is this even legal? Should groups like the ACLU and prisoner’s rights groups file a lawsuit against Chris Brackett and the people who are obstructing mail delivery to inmates? Please share this article and video with your friends and family and ask them what they think. Building a free society depends on people like you to think, speak, and act — especially when it is easier to do nothing.

Police Violence Up, People Violence Down | CopBlock Radio

Published by:

Last night on CopBlock Radio, hosts Derrick J, DEO, and Severin started off the show with a good cop! He was called to a parking lot by a local business owner who complained about some teenagers “loitering.” He explains to them, while taking a relaxed, laid-back “cool guy” lean on his cruiser that he remembers being issued tickets as a young person, and he doesn’t want to be that guy giving young people tickets for stupid stuff like loitering. He asks that they please leave the private property unless they are customers and then takes time for questions. The conversation seems more “I’m on your level making a request” than “I’m your superior, and you will do what I say.” DEO points out that this law enforcer ultimately will use the tickets and the threats and force eventually if pushed, but I am just grateful that he has the decency to at least begin the interaction with a little bit of acknowledgement of the others’ humanity.

Live Update from the Silk Road Trial | World Crypto Network

Published by:

At the conclusion of day 1 of the Ross Ulbricht Trial, John Bush gives a live recap of what went down inside the courthouse. I livestreamed from my phone for the World Crypto Network and also uploaded high quality videos on my youtube channel.

Livestream:

Day 1, Recap Part 1:

Day 1, Recap Part 2:

Unfortunately, this video is all that I captured. The judge threatened to sequester the jury if demonstrations continued outside the courthouse, and Lyn Ulbricht (Ross’ mom) asked me to stop. So I went home. Sad.

Tom Woods Interviews Derrick J on Ross Ulbricht Silk Road Trial

Published by:

I was honored to be a guest on the Tom Woods Show podcast recently. We discussed the facts surrounding the trial of the decade: USA v Ross Ulbricht. Ross faces life in prison for victimless crimes stemming from his participation with the website Silk Road, an online black marketplace where people bought and sold drugs (mostly pot). I organized an event to peacefully demonstrate outside the courthouse where Ross will be put on trial. Other activists from around the country will be converging on Manhattan to report on the story and also to do Jury Nullification outreach. Listen to the interview here:

Thanks for having me on, Tom!
