MPLU-founder & Anarchist Prisoner Jerome White-Bey is in the hole again!

After a long period of no disciplinary cases, this one is so 
non-specific with the available current information and is as 
unreasonable as most of the others since I've known him.

Brighton ABC and Central Texas ABC have been working hard over the 
past 6 months to get them to comply with their own medical 
conclusions that he needed Interferon Therapy for his Hep-C 
liver/damage, which requires transfer to a facility that performs it, 
for a period of 6 months, if I recalled right the time for treatment. 
In late July and early August they now conclude that, his diagnosed 
hypothyroidism condition would have an adverse reaction to the 
Interferon drugs.

He's been taking the Thyroid medication since June, when we were told 
it would be about 2 months for his Thyroid to normalize (Enthyroid), 
but it's been at least or over 4 months since then; he states he 
hasn't been to visit the doctor in he doesn't know how long - so how 
the hell would they know if he's become stabilized!

Now, this contrived issue, that could possibly be nothing more than a 
benign meeting he had with a person about gang pressure put on the 
guy to join a gang where he worked; Jerome is an experienced mediator 
and organizer; so I'm presuming before I get more answers from him - 
that this was innocuous enough on the face of it but also has the 
smell of administration orchestration.

Dare I say "set-up"?

I've asked him if he had any history with this guy who was slapped 
around by the"alleged" gang members, who approached Jerome on a 
referral to ask if he could help. Eastern Regional Diagnostics Care 
Center (ERDCC) also brought up a bogus 14-name "enemies list" when he 
arrived there 3 or more years ago, which we successfully discredited 
after a painstaking letter writing effort and affidavits; so all 
these little trips are in the backs of their heads all the time to isolate him.

I want all friends of Jerome's to write a short letter to:

MDOC Regional Medical Director Dr. Conley,
2729 Plaza Drive,
P.O. Box 236,
Jefferson City, MO. 65102

Ask the doctor to check into why it's taking twice the time normally 
for Jerome's Thyroid to respond to the Thyroid medication to 
stabilize it; especially if he claims he hasn't had an intake to see 
a doctor in a long time - and add that his transfer to begin the 
Interferon Therapy must happen immediately if it shows the 
hypothyroidism is in check. (their excuse true or not is that 
Interferon has adverse effects on a hypothyroid condition) He should 
recommend that he be released from the hole while this so-called 
investigation is run.
But, I caveat all that with, he was scheduled for parole (December 
2009) at the height of his decline in health last fall, which would 
have allowed him access to better care on the outs, so it's illogical 
that they wouldn't want to cut him loose to avoid any medical expense 
on him, which is so prison-like; but now it's other unfathomable 
reasons to stall the next step in treatment. (See: attachment with 
Dec. 2009 letter-writing campaign for parole reference - and update 
if you want to)

Also, I don't know if he is actually out of the hole yet pending this 
non-specific investigation they won't disclose to him
on what it is, he has only two ideas; the treatment pressure we've 
exerted over this past year and or this contact with another prisoner.
In the 11/14/10 letter to Brighton, he must have been put in the hole 
the second week of November; and had a cold at the time and was in a 
cold cell. If anyone understands a little about the Endocrine system, 
it's a very highly tuned system that can be thrown out of balance 
further when subjected to these conditions; which is also baffling - 
unless rather then release him they'd promote his demise.

Another person to contact at the facility is a health services administrator:

Ms. Chandler, HSA/ERDCC,
2727 Highway K,
Bonne Terre, MO. 63628

And lastly, most of all, write Jerome to help him through this ordeal,
or send a birthday card on December 28th to:



2727 Highway K,
Bonne Terre, MO. 

Mr. Twitch,
Central Texas ABC
