Good evening. This is Brother Khalfani Malik Khaldun calling in from Wabash Valley correctional Facility in Indiana. From the [depths/death] of Indiana political prisoner Brother Khalfani Malik Khaldun, press release 2020.
After spending 20 straight years in solitary confinement, segregation and the Indiana department of corrections, I was released to general population on November the 21st, 2014. Here at Wabash Valley Correctional Facility, located in Indiana—Southern Indiana. That 20 years caused me to now suffer from chronic depression and a host of other psychological diagnosis.
For six straight years, I have had no violence or major disturbances associated with me or my name. Since being released to general population, I have still experienced harassment and targeted cell searches. Primarily due to two lawsuits I have filed—and they’re pending—against this prison plantation as we speak. For six months, I have maintained a prison sanitation job in the offender service building.
On January the 22nd, I was terminated by the internal affairs chief investigator named Chief McDonald. This job was given to me as a set up test. To get me back in solitary confinement inside the Indiana SHU untit, where I had already spent from 2003 to 2011. I had to basically avoid a different trap every day while working in this building at Wabash Valley Correctional Facility.
On January the 23rd, 2020, I was taken to the SHU when I refused to cooperate with the investigators. Present was investigator Davis Carbinsor, McDonald and Randall Van Fleet, four of the major investigators that run this facility. I get a shower three times a week and outside recreation, three times a week. I have a C mental health code that’s supposed to prevent them from putting me on this unit at all.
Without the outside support and help, they will get away with what they’re doing to me. This is what I need you to do. Call and demand to know why I am being held under investigation. Recommend that I be transferred out of Wabash Valley Correctional Facility to a non-affiliated facility where I’ve never been.
You—You may contact the superintendent here at this facility named Richard Brown at (812) 398-5050, extension 4101. You may also contact Fernell, it’s F E R N E L L, K. McDonald at (812) 398-5050, who’s the Chief Investigator responsible for housing me in solitary confinement and removed me from general population.
You may also call Mike [inaudible] who is the lead captain here at this facility who hired me for the job—the sanitation job in the offender service building—at (812) 398-5050. The guy who you may contact, who runs the Indiana Department of Corrections, who really needs to be aware of what’s going on here: name is Robert Carter, Commissioner of the Indiana Department of Corrections. He may be contacted at (317) 232-5711.
And we want to also reach out to the governor who may not know the things that they’re doing here at Wabash Valley, whose name is Eric J. Holcomb, Governor of Indiana. Number: (317) 232-4567. [Inaudible.] If you want to help to me secure some legal help in this matter, contact comrade Nick, N I C K, at (317) 459-7646.
You may write me by snail mail or set up an account on www.globaltelelink.com and send me an email on my tablet. Thanks for your support and your time. My name is Brother Khalfani Malik Khaldoun, also known as Leonard McQuay, 874304. My address is PO box 1111. Cell location is A108, Carlisle, Indiana, C A R L I S L E, Indiana 47838.
Thank you for your time. I need your support. This is a serious matter because I’ve did everything in my-in my power to stay clear of any trouble, any negative activity. And I maintain a positive attitude on my job, in the general population. And I think that I’ve displayed a professional character of growth and credibility since I arrived at this facility in 2014. Thank you.
