Imam Hasan SMP decision August 14, 2018

Disposition of the Rules Infraction Board [see note below], August 14, 2018.  The “facts that explain the board’s decision” are said to be as follows:
            “The Serious Misconduct Panel believes that inmate Sanders R130559 did attempt to incite others to riot by misusing the DRC phone system referring to the 2016 prison strike/work stoppage and violent events that occurred in our nation’s prisons and jails to promote the 2018 prison strike/work stoppage that is suspected to occur on August 21, 2018 that will end on September 9, 2018.  Inmate Sanders stated on the DRC phone system that two years later, the decision has been that from August 21 to September 9, there is going to be another National Work Stoppage and it entails many more things than what happened in 2016.  We intend to put up stiff resistance.”
            A Supplemental page of the Disposition sets forth additional allegations concerning a supposed event not mentioned in the Conduct Report and as to which no evidence was offered at the hearing:  “the SMP believes that Sanders R130559 did misuse the JPay privilege by answering an anti-Aramark Food Service organizer’s JPay message to him.  The organizer asked inmate Sanders R130559 to recruit other inmates via JPay to stop Aramark from being used at the University of Cincinnati until they stopped feeding inmates incarcerated in Ohio.”
            The Serious Misconduct Panel recommended placement in ERH3 (reduction in level of privileges), and suspension of Hasan’s phone and JPay privileges for up to one year.
The Disposition form and the Appeal form refer to the Rules Infraction Board, but the Conduct Report was heard by the Serious Misconduct Panel.
