@NYTimes: A letter has been leaked that shows that Director Samuels of the BOP knew about abuse allegations since 2016

@NYTimes:  The letter also implies the director knew about the abuse at Fort Worth and did nothing

 

Quote

 

April 22, 2016

To: Charles E Samuels Jr, DIRECTOR, Federal Bureau of Prisons

From: Stacia A. Hylton, DIRECTOR, U.S. Marshals Service

 

To Director Samuels:

 

As you know The Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) and the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) have custodial control of federal prisoners and are responsible for maintaining safe, humane, and secure facilities. BOP and USMS officials are responsible for reporting all allegations of staff physical and sexual abuse and sexual misconduct to the Department’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG).

 

It has come to my attention that BOP officials have declined to report allegations of staff physical and sexual abuse and sexual misconduct several times to the OIG, to even ignoring complaints of inmates. This has been a concern to me and my staff as we share the responsibility of maintaining the safety of not only our federal prisons but the inmates themselves. This is the second time I have contacted your office to no avail about these complaints, I have sent a memo on June 1st, 2015 expressing my concern about the increase of inmate allegations of abuse both physical and sexual and your office’s lack of concern to even investigate or inform the OIG about these allegations.

 

When I contacted the wardens where most of the allegations have arisen, the wardens directed me back to your office and stated they had been told not to start official investigations until they obtained your express permission to do so, it is too my knowledge you have still not granted them permission to do so.

 

It is disturbing as reports of Fort Worth have made it to my office suggesting extreme cases of prisoner abuse and yet not a single investigation has been started by the BOP and in same cases officials of the USMS have been refused access to investigate or even pressured with intimidation by your own officials not to investigate and not to inform the OIG.

 

One case at Fort Worth involved a 60-year-old mentally handicapped inmate who was beaten and repeatedly sodomized by two female prison guards. BOP officials refused to have us launch a joint investigation into the matter and even now my officers have yet to even interview the victim due to him being sent to solitary confinement for alleged infractions.

 

I believe this is incredibly damaging to the overall structure of the federal prison system and the BOP and I request your immediate answer and action to my growing concerns.

 

Sincerely,

 

Stacia A. Hylton

DIRECTOR, U.S. Marshals Service
