CertTeam Gasses Protest at Holman Against Horrific Conditions, Calls Needed!

Submitted to It’s Going Down

Prisoners in the segregation unit (lock up) at Holman Prison are currently being attacked and sprayed with a chemical agents by the CertTeam. It has been reported that prisoners are having trouble breathing due to the harsh chemicals and no ventilation. Staff are refusing to open doors to vent out the strong smell. The Prisoners were conducting a peaceful protest against inhumane conditions. Inmates are complaining of non-functioning toilets, showers, and refusal of daily walks .

These type of attacks are a violation of Prisoner Rights according to the 8th Amendment under Cruel and Unusual Punishment.

A use of force is excessive and violates the Eighth Amendment when it is not applied in an effort to maintain or restore discipline but is used to maliciously and sadistically cause harm. Where a prison official is responsible for unnecessary and wanton infliction of pain, the Eighth Amendment has been violated.

Please contact the A.D.O.C and the Alabama Governor’s Office demanding that prisoners are provided proper treatment and that their current inhumane conditions need to be addressed immediately.
