Bundy alleges the torture began last week as the result of a dispute with a guard over Bundy’s shirt handing on the side of his bed.
According to Bundy, he was handcuffed in a 3×3 foot shower for 13 hours, stripped naked and then thrown in the hole. This was all because he refused to allow a guard to take his shirt that was hanging off his bed, which the rules stipulate that nothing is to be hanging over the side. This was his only shirt to wear, and had it been taken, he would have not been allowed to come to breakfast.”
Deb Jordan of Guerilla Media Network was able to visit Bundy after the ordeal. She learned both of Bundy’s shoulders had been dislocated and he then was confined in isolation with shackles on his ankles. She posted her observations on Facebook.
He is painfully thin,” she wrote. “He told me that they beat him up pretty good, was sore, but was starting to gain back a little strength — He was able to raise his arms and move them about so he was gaining back a little mobility. His voice trembled sometimes and he spoke very softly .. I could tell he had a little trouble concentrating at times but otherwise he was alert and aware of his surroundings .. He was a bit pale but had color in his cheeks ..”
Bundy faces charges of obstruction of justice and assault on a federal officer. He’s already been acquitted of similar charges in a trial in Oregon.
Those who believe the government is persecuting him unfairly argue that his Fifth and Sixth Amendment rights are being violated. In particular, the right to a “speedy and public trial” has been ignored while he’s been deprived of his liberty for more than a year.
This is a clear case of an individual who has not been found guilty of any offense, and yet, been subjected to abuse and torture.
In response to the torture allegations, the CCA prison acknowledged on Monday that the guard who targeted Bundy had been sent home the next day and has not returned.
Pro-Bundy supporters are planning ongoing protests at the prison. They assert that what’s happened to Bundy happens in prisons around the country, where prisoner abuse and denial of rights is commonplace.
From the Bundy Facebook page:
—AMMON BUNDY LIVE FROM SOLITARY CONFINEMENT—
CALL: CALL 775 482 8110….OPTION 8 FOR DIRECTORY OF ALL POLICE. OPTION 1 FOR SHERIFF.
…AFTER BEING HANDCUFFED IN A 3×3 FOOT SHOWER FOR 13 HOURS, STRIPPED NAKED AND THEN THROWN IN THE HOLE. ALL FOR REFUSING TO LET A GUARD TAKE HIS SHIRT THAT WAS HANGING OFF HIS BED WHICH IS AGAINST THE RULES TO HAVE ANYTHING HANGING OVER THE SIDE. HAD HE LET THEM TAKE HIS ONLY SHIRT HE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO COME TO THE MORNING MEAL.
SO HE ENDED UP BEING TORTURED, BEATEN, HAD BOTH SHOULDERS DISLOCATED HE WAS FORCED TO PUT THEM BACK IN PLACE ON HIS OWN! HE WAS ISOLATED OVER NIGHT WITH BLOODY ANKLES FROM THE SHACKLES.
AMERICA, THIS IS NOT OUR BELOVED NATION ANY LONGER. IT’S BEEN HIJACKED BY TYRANTS.
