(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) In a desperate letter, 34 J6 political prisoners requested a transfer to Guantanamo Bay prison in order to escape the brutal conditions to which they have been exposed in their Washington, D.C. gulag.
The prisoners have been held for up to one and a half years on various misdemeanors and fraudulent felony charges, the Gateway Pundit reported. Their conditions apparently include isolation, beatings, lack of exercise and lack of necessary medical assistance.
In response to their conditions they penned a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland begging for more humane treatment.
According to the prisoners, Americans should be shocked that their government would “subjugate its own citizens to that of incarceration and injustice instead, all while administering medieval standards of living to the agonizing occupants of its ‘Correctional Facilities’.”
They also noted that they have recieved brutal treatment and neglect from the guards, even making it nearly impossible for guests to visit.
“As prisoners of this Jail, we have witnessed the horrendous treatment and have been personally afflicted by the hellacious conditions this Jail insists on tormenting its traumatized guests with,” they continued.
According to the list of grievances that they filed against the DOJ, the prison site has a great abundance of black mold, causing permanent health consequences for the prisoners.
Further, the food often contains worms, and has malnourished a large number of those in state captivity.
In conclusion, they asked that Garland transfer them to the notoriously brutal Guantanamo Bay, which at least allows for basic health upkeep despite the fact that it typically houses international terrorists.
“We hereby request to spend our precious and limited days, should the government continue to insist on holding us captive unconstitutionally as pre-trial detainees, to be transferred and reside at Guantanamo Bay, a detention facility that actually provides nutritional meals, routine sunlight exposure, top notch medical care, is respectful of religious requirements… instead of remaining trapped within the wretched confines of cruel and unusual punishment of the DC Jail.”
