Update on Jalil Muntaqim

Three of us went to Attica on Saturday, January 14, 2012 to visit 
Jalil. We had an excellent visit and have a brief update from Jalil.

First of all, he thanks everyone who took the time to make the calls 
to Superindent Bradt and Commissioner Brian Fischer.
The most important thing he wants people to know is that on Friday, 
January 13th, at 1 p.m. all Muslims were searched while on the way to 
Juma. The COs took Korans and threw them on the ground during the 
search in a blatant attempt to provoke a confrontation, but "nobody jumped."

Also, Jalil's Tier 3 hearing for "unauthorized organization" was held 
on January 13th in the morning. Jalil requested that Sergeant Cochran 
of Gang Intel be a witness, as he was the officer who processed 
Jalil's possessions when he arrived at Attica, but the Sergeant declined.

Jalil showed Officer Krumph, the hearing officer, the programs from 
the Cetewayo, Shasha and Karim Memorials, all of which have BPP/BLA 
logos, and asked why these items had not also been confiscated if 
they are considered to be "gang material."

Jalil also requested Counselor Schiffer as a witness. Jalil 
reiterated that, if these items had been approved by the mailroom, 
there was no reason for them to subsequently be considered "contraband."

Officer Krumph proceeded to call the correspondence dept., and the 
officers there informed him that, since correspondence had approved 
the mail, there was no reason why the photos should have been 
confiscated in the first place.

The hearing has now been postponed until sometime this week, as 
Officer Krumph is to interview Sergeant Cochran and Counselor Schiffer.

As always, Jalil sends revolutionary greetings to the righteous at heart.
