I haven't heard anything either. I was expecting a call this afternoon as he was out last night. I know he said his unit was supposed to go to the store today so thinking maybe that took longer than expected and that's why I didn't hear from him.

Hello ladies, just received a response back from the facility regarding the delay of mail as well as the consistent modified lockdownís. I will be responding later this evening and following up with the general inspector of the Federal Bureau of prisons. Hoping everyone else is pushing as well so that a change is made.

Good afternoon XXX XXXXXX,

In response to your correspondence to the Mid-Atlantic Regional Office. The United States Penitentiary Lee does not take the decision to lock down the institution lightly. It is only done when absolutely necessary to maintain the safe and secure running of the institution. The primary objective is to investigate what necessitated a lock down, and to determine how best to prevent it from happening in the future. Violence can, and unfortunately, does, erupt without warning. In these dangerous and critical incidents, it is imperative to maintain control to prevent any further injury or potential loss of life. It is not possible, nor practical, to immediately ascertain who was not involved, to avoid the appearance of a group punishment situation.

It is our commitment to encourage and promote positive interactions between inmates and their loved ones. Correspondence is core to this concept and encourages bonds among family, friends, and the community. Please be aware, USP Lee staff obtain mail from the U.S. Post Office each business morning. The mail is then processed and ordinarily delivered later the same day.
We are not aware of any issues with the telephone or email systems being.

It is my commitment to encourage and promote positive family interaction between inmates and their loved ones. Visiting is core to this concept and encourages bonds among family, friends, and the community. Penitentiaries, by nature of the actions of those incarcerated, are very fluid institutions. Any major incident requires immediate action. These dangerous and critical incidents can, and often do, impact visitation. In the event it is necessary to cancel visitation, USP Lee updates both the institution website, and the automated telephonic message. This information is updated as soon as feasibly possible following the conclusion of any necessitating event. Unfortunately, there is no manner in which to predict with absolute certainty whether an event will or will not occur that would impact visitation.
In closing you suggest someone be sent to USP Lee to investigate the conditions. The Bureau of Prisons has many internal and external controls to ensure the standards of incarceration are safe and humane. One of these methods is a Program Review. These are conducted by members of a team, comprised of Bureau employees, from different institutions to get an impartial evaluation of the operations of individual departments and the institution as a whole. The Correctional Services Department received the highest accolades of a ďSuperiorĒ rating. As such, I am confident in the standards of incarceration at USP Lee, and welcome any and all scrutiny of such practices.

All inmates have the right to address any and all complaints of the conditions of confinement through the Administrative Remedy Process. This allows them the ability to have their concerns heard at the institution, Regional and Central Office levels. I encourage your husband to utilize this process, as he will be provided written responses to anything he would like addressed, at all levels.

I trust this information address your concerns.

Smoke and mirrors.. you/we are already telling them there are issues with the mail, emails, visits, lockdowns.. maybe if they paid attention to your actual concerns in your statement they can better address the problems instead of providing a generic response.

Just popping in to say you ladies are amazing, and to send you strength in this battle... This facility appears to be on lockdown constantly and I can't imagine the toll it is taking on all of you & your loved ones. Still you show up here everyday keeping each other updated on the situation and trying to improve things... I am rooting for y'all and hoping that somehow the situation will get better!!
