Question USP Levenworth Prison Lockdown

USP Leavenworth inmates have been on lock down for a week and all visiting was cancelled . As of today they are still locked down and no one seems to know why. We were told about the strikers outside the prison, but not a word mentioned about our family members being locked down. Are they the victims now for what the strikers are doing. We are looking for help to find answers and give our loved ones but what little freedom they have left.

Welcome to PTO
This is a fed prison correct? If so I will move your post to that particular forum where I am sure you will find someone who wants to discuss this

Get well soon David! You are in our thoughts

i posted on another the lockdown is supposed to be extended until the 24th. they are angry so much contraband is being found. no visits, phone calls or questions asked. keep writing your friend or loved one because letters are all they are allowed to have. letters are also being monitored and pretty slow at getting to them. its annoying, but im all for it if they finding all kinds of shanks and weapons. good luck and if you hear anything more, let me know

My dad is in the camp at Leavenworth USP and he called and told his wife it may be feb.24th before visitations resume/I dont know if that is the word that they have been given by the guards to pacify them or what,but the only thing I have heard is a guard at the main prison used excessive force on an inmate during a shakedown and got fired for it so people where picketing.You are right though,I think the prison officials are punishing our loved ones for their mistakes

It's not only the one guard getting fired that started it. Since Leavenworth went to an FCI status they have let go a lot of guards. Now they are complaining because the level of misconduct is real high right now but they are suppose to be able to run an FCI with only a certain number of guards. I think they are still trying to figure it out. Who knows!?
