Cool John Walker Lindh assaulted in prison

brought this over .......


John Walker Lindh assaulted in prison
'American Taliban' reportedly beset in High Desert prison
VINCE LOVATO, Staff Writer
Wednesday, March 05, 2003 - VICTORVILLE - The FBI is investigating a reported attack on American Taliban John Walker Lindh by one or more white supremacists at the Federal Correctional Institution here.

"I can confirm there was an incident regarding Lindh (on) Monday night,' said FBI spokeswoman Laura Bosley. "There was a report that Lindh was assaulted by another inmate but I cannot disclose any details beyond that.'

At the request of his attorneys, Walker Lindh was placed in the general population in February and was working as an orderly cleaning indoors where guards could keep him under close scrutiny for his safety, said a source who works at the 960-acre prison complex.

The source, who asked not to be identified, said Muslim inmates had been protecting Walker Lindh because they viewed him as a hero. But they pulled back their support because they decided he was not a radical dissident, the source said.

Since Monday, Walker Lindh has been in special housing, a type of solitary confinement for his protection, the source said.

The prison workers see him as young, vulnerable and socially immature, the source said.

Walker Lindh was moved to the Victorville prison after pleading guilty to one count of supplying services to the Taliban and carrying a rifle and two grenades while fighting against the U.S.-backed Northern Alliance.

He was taken into custody after U.S. military forces found him bloodied and dazed during a prison uprising near Mazar-e Sharif in northern Afghanistan.

As part of his plea bargain, the government dropped all other counts in a lengthy criminal indictment, including one of the most serious charges conspiracy to kill U.S. nationals.

Walker Lindh, 21, is expected to serve most of his 20-year term in the Victorville medium-security prison.

When crimes are committed in federal prisons the FBI investigates and the Justice Department decides whether to prosecute, Bosley said.

The Sun was tipped to the incident by an anonymous male caller who left a voice message at the newspaper office Tuesday morning.

The message said, 'Yes, I'd like to inform your newspaper that John Lindh Walker, who is incarcerated in Victorville, was assaulted this night by a white-supremacist organization that is imprisoned there. Thank you.'

The caller's identity could not be determined.

George Harris, an attorney with the San Francisco firm that represents Walker Lindh, said he was not aware of any incident regarding his client and was concerned for his safety.

"I don't know anything about an attack,' Harris said. "We would be concerned if my client would be in danger.'

He said the more information about Walker Lindh that is public, "the more danger he's in.'

Federal Bureau of Prisons spokesman Dan Dunne said in Washington, D.C., that to preserve the safety and security of inmates, the bureau does not release information about them.

He said the prison bureau only releases information about a crime if the U.S. attorneys decide to prosecute.

"Walker Lindh remains safely housed at Victorville,' Dunne said. "He's being housed there in a unit that is consistent with security needs.'

Dunne said he could not comment on the existence of any white-supremacist gang that might be incarcerated in the prison.

"If there were any concerns about any inmate's security,' they would be addressed immediately, Dunne said.

Walker Lindh, his parents and his legal representatives are under a gag order as a condition of his plea bargain and are barred from talking to the media, Dunne said.

Inmates, including Walker Lindh, have the right to contact certain people outside the prison, Dunne said.

The complex, which is directly south of Southern California Logistics Airport on Air Expressway, includes a minimum-security camp. The two facilities have a combined 1,650 inmates and 362 full-time employees.

A high-security penitentiary and a second medium-security prison are under construction on the site.

Walker Lindh was moved to Victorville to be closer to his parents, who live in Marin County. His father, Frank Walker Lindh, is an attorney for Pacific Gas & Electric.


Now don't this break your heart......

Sempers,

... that the 9th Circuit Court in San Francisco doesn't hear of this alleged incident, as they will file a brief for early release. Walker Lindh will get it in the end, if he hasn't already. Part of the reward he reaped for himself was the opportunity to spend the night with some boys who may or may not like him, and they may or may not introduce him to things he may or may not want to have thought about. Sorry, my empathy meter has flat-lined.

Default If I was him

and put in the general population, I'd certainly change religions. That Moslem Prayer position will surely look inviting to a bunch of those prisoners.

Default Col. Scout.......

?Empathy flat line?. I like the expression as it describes exactly how I feel about Talib Johnny and all his terrorist pals/ cohorts. I worry about my attitude for I?m perfectly OK with the concept that the likes of stupid Talib Johnny end up as dried-out, wrinkly parchment looking cadavers decorating some bleak and barren Wadi in Afghanistan or wherever. By a half tick of fate he nearly got there and probably would have been better off. I know, I know-bad attitude.
But I believe I?ll save my empathy for the USN Sailors that are singling up lines and heading off to war.

There is no evidence that John Walker raped anyone yet it seems super Scout and Paco think he deserves that introduction in our Federal prison. I do not think he does unless he perpetrated the same. However I think any veteran or soldier capable of perpetrating such a thing was the mid set of too many in our military and thus my point. Sorry but it disgusts me. Perhaps Scout and Paco can clarify their position that John walker deserves an introduction to rape in prison.

Judy...I know that this is a very delicate issue for you do not want to offend you in any way. What Johnny bin walker deserves is to die the slowest most painful death that can be brought to bear on him. Nothing more and nothing less. As long as the death takes place within the next seven days, hate the thought of paying more tax dollars for this puke.
