Support Prisoners After Riot at Missouri's CRCC
On May 12th, prison rebels at Crossroads Correctional Center in Missouri staged a sit in asking for the reinstatement of rehabilitation programs and recreation time.. Prison officials refused and the action escalated to sabotage on property destruction. As with most prisons, people imprisoned in CRCC are rotated in and out of the hole so they can run the prison permanently over capacity whether the people in prison had an actual infraction or not. When people go to the hole, their personal property is stored in a property room.
During the uprising at CRCC, the property room was destroyed along with several other buildings. The most common request for support after the riot has been to pressure the administration to replace everyone's lost or damaged property.
Call CRCC warden Rhonda Pash at 816-632-2727 and call the attorney general at 573-751-3321.
Leave a message if you can't reach them directly.

"I am calling to request that people who lost property during the rebellion at CRCC on May 12th have all of their property replaced. People imprisoned in CRCC and most other prisons are rotated in and out of the hole so they can run the prison permanently over capacity and the paid prison administrators are responsible for that personal property as long as it is in their possession."
If officials ask for inmates' names, tell them they can find their names from the property lists they maintain.
