Cases Emerge of Georgia Prisoners Beaten During Non-Violent Strike

The Concerned Coalition to Respect Prisoners’ Rights has learned that on or near December 16th Terrance Bryant Dean was severely beaten by guards at Macon State Prison during the strike of thousands of prisoners across the state of Georgia. Prison officials have refused to release any information about Terrance’s condition.  In fact when his mother asked about him they said he was in the hole, when in fact it was later discovered he had been hospitalized.  The status of 37 or more prisoners being labeled “conspirators” is also unknown.

According to witnesses, Terrance was dragged from his cell in handcuffs and leg irons, removed to the prison gym and beaten unconscious.  Reports are also coming in that this is not the only incidence of retaliatory violence from the prison system.  The Coalition has visited two of the prisons to investigate abuses and will have a full report out soon.
