For certain I will be here until March 21, 2017, since Albany DOCCS affirmed the disciplinary conviction and excessive sanctions. DOCCS SHU Commissioner D. Venettozzi did this while Prisoners’ Legal Service of Buffalo, who were to file a Supplemental Brief on the appeal, never received the records of the Tier II disciplinary hearing. PLS also never received the audio or video recordings, in violation of my due process rights on appeal.
Essentially, DOCCS is adamant about violating prisoners’ first amendment rights of speech and being able to express our beliefs. The disciplinary proceedings and appeal process further confirm what was reported in the NY Times articles of Dec. 4 and 5, 2016. Hence, was my being placed in SHU on Dec. 6 a coincidence?
These DOCCS discriminatory practices must be exposed and challenged by all freedom loving people!
