Dear Mr. President:

         My husband, Gary White, is imprisoned at Edgefield Federal Satellite Camp in South Carolina, where he has been repeatedly and continuously abused by prison employees since his self-surrender 53 weeks ago.    On March 24th, because he asked to make a legal call to his attorney, he was taken and illegally locked in solitary confinement for 27 days.    After I had become aware that he had been moved from his unit, but being unaware of his whereabouts or safety, his attorney and I began desperately seeking to find his whereabouts.    On March 25th, his attorney was allowed to speak with him after calling the prison, the regional and Washington offices.    During that legal call, prison employees committed criminal violations under color of law, punishable by ten years in prison and a $250,000 fine.    See the attorney's attached affidavit.    Since March 25th, my husband, his attorney and I have made these violations known to those in authority and repeatedly demanded investigation and prosecution of the violating prison employees.    We were all ignored, with the prison employees engaging in a cover-up of all the violations.    Additionally, my husband has suffered from PTSD and other injuries resulting from his solitary confinement.   The prison medical employees have acknowledged his condition and refused to provide treatment, despite his repeated requests.

Yesterday, my husband was called to the office at the prison where he was interviewed -- against his stated will and asserted right to counsel -- by a prison employee claiming to be an investigator; he identified himself as Mr. Vining.   My husband and I have filed a lawsuit against the prison employees and such "interviews" are improper at best and against his rights and his interests.    Vining not only required my husband to be interviewed, but told him that he -- Vining -- was preparing an affidavit for my husband's signature.    My husband asserted his right to counsel and stated that he required any such document to be submitted to his attorney.    On my husband's behalf and as his attorney in fact, I also informed the warden by e-mail of the matter and asserted my husband's right to counsel and to have any document reviewed.

Today my husband was called to the office and directed to sign the affidavit prepared -- with no involvement by my husband -- by Vining.    My husband stated repeatedly that he wanted anything requiring his signature to be submitted for review by his attorney, only to be told that not only would the document not be submitted to the attorney, but even my husband would not be allowed a copy of his own purported affidavit, which is outrageous.    An affidavit is a legal document.    We are involved in litigation against the prison employees.    We have demanded the criminal prosecution of prison employees who have harmed and injured my husband.    My husband has the right to counsel; he asserted that right and was denied, and he has been pressured, threatened and now given a deadline to sign the document.

I am begging for your immediate attention and urgent intervention.    Based on all that has been done to my husband, I am terribly fearful of what will be done to him if he does not sign the document, but also fearful of what will be done to him and/or with the document if he does sign it.    THIS IS AMERICA -- NOT SOME BANANA REPUBLIC WHERE PRISONERS ARE ABUSED AND MISUSED IN SUCH A MANNER.    My husband has repeatedly submitted statements in his own words that he has signed.    He has committed no wrong or violation of any sort.    He has reported the criminal actions of prison employees and has been further abused in retaliation for doing so, which is ILLEGAL.

PLEASE HELP US!    Please rescue my husband from the abuse of the prison employees -- REMOVE HIM FROM EDGEFIELD PRISON NOW!!!
