In December 2010, Sgt. Christopher Hall led an emergency response team at Macon State Prison in central Georgia responding to a fight between an inmate, Terrance Dean, and a guard. Hall’s team broke up the fight, handcuffed Dean and took him into the prison gym. Dean emerged with a massive head injury, comatose and clinging to life.
A campaign of brutal beatings and withheld medical care continues in the wake of the December 2010 inmate strike in Georgia prisons. Rev. Kenneth Glasgow of The Ordinary Peoples Society is calling for a public hearings into Georgia’s troubled prisons.
Three months after inmate protests at multiple Georgia prisons, public records have emerged to document the vicious assault and battery committed upon handcuffed prisoner Terrance Dean by correctional officers and supervisors of Macon State Prison.
The prison strike has ended in seven Georgia prisons, but organizing is ongoing. The political consequences of their actions could shift politics in Georgia and far beyond the state; thus the strike deserves solidarity from every corner.
"Since the start of the Dec. 9 peaceful work stoppage and appeal for reform and respect for human rights, some inmates have been targeted and others have simply disappeared. We are urging the Department of Corrections and Governor-Elect Nathan Deal to act now to halt these unjust practices and treat these men like human beings,” said Ed Dubose, President of the NAACP of Georgia.
