Jamil Al-Amin needs our help!

After filing a complaint with prison officials that his legal mail
from his wife was being opened by guards, Jamil Al-Amin was moved to 
another area of the Reidsville Prison. The area he is currently in is 
reserved for mental patients, and those who throw their food at 
guards. When Imam Jamil asked why he was moved to that area of  the 
facility, he was informed that a guard (the same guard that illegally 
opened his mail) had put on his record that Jamil Al-Amin had assaulted him.

The food Jamil Al-Amin is being "served" is brought uncovered, and
fed to him through what can only be considered a trough (which is the 
way pigs and other farm animals are fed). Prison officials also use 
same opening used to push his food through to mop the dirty floor of 
the cell, furthering the possibility of contamination. This

Why was Jamil Al-Amin recently moved into an further isolation, and
to an area of the prison
reserved for patients with mental problems?

What is being done to ensure the best interests of Jamil Al-Amin's
