THE GOOD, THE BAD
AND THE UGLY:


THE GOOD:

    + The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) Local 3807 advocates for TDCJ to house death-row prisoners who pose the lowest security risk in cells with other inmates. The union also calls for the prison system to introduce privileges such as work assignments, streaming television and technology such as computer tablets—all in an effort to reduce the psychological trauma of inmates and the potential confrontations with guards. It’s a particularly powerful statement given the attitude of labor unions to prisoner rights and solitary confinement elsewhere in the country.

    + Regional VI (Austin) Mr. Campuzano for reinstating TPNS Member back on her husband's and nephew's visitation list.

    + Region V (Amarillo) - Mr. Cooper

    + Parole Board in Angleton; Ms. Garcia

    + Warden Westfall and Chaplain Ray of Coffield Unit, were especially helpful during a crisis with a TPNS Member's husband's Mother, both men were compassionate, gave the inmate the info immediately and helped get phones calls to each other so that he would know how his Mom was progressing after her massive coronary.

    + Warden Caskey; Boyd Unit

    + Warden Hudson; SR. Warden of the Boyd Unit

    + Ms. Ward; she is in the Warden's office at the Estelle Unit

    + Ms. Hawkins; she is the Warden's Secretary at the Hamilton Unit

    + Capt. Skau; McConnell Unit. "I appreciated the way he spoke to me when I called him." [TPNS Member]

    + Mr. Gates who works the first gate at the Michael/Coffield unit. He found some shot gun shells that my son had put in the trunk (I didn't know they were in there) and he allowed me to come back to the front of the line instead of getting behind the 150 other cars still waiting on a Holiday weekend. Those of us who go all the time are recognized and Mr. Gates knew I'd never given them any problems so he treated me like he would have liked to have been treated and I really appreciate that.

    + The Visitation Guards at Coffield, especially Mrs. Elliott. They are always polite and make our visits so much more enjoyable. I have only had a conflict with one of the gaurds but one out of 20 isn't too bad.
