Yesterday at 12pm, Andre Logan, PA DOC # LM3820, was assaulted by two officers outside of the chow hall at SCI-Smithfield. The officers used excessive force on Andre because his shirttail was untucked.
Andre suffered a fractured nose after having his face slammed into a glass window and then slammed to the concrete ground in full view of other prisoners. Andre was then taken to the restricted housing unit and placed in solitary confinement.
In situations like this, prison officials depend upon the opaqueness of what happens behind prison walls to get away with violent behavior. We ask that you contact Jamie Luther, Superintendent here, and let her know that you are aware of the incident and the injuries Andre suffered.
The number to call is 814-643-6520
No doubt, the officers will attempt to cover their backs. If we allow this behavior to go unaddressed, other prisoners will suffer too.
We thank you for your concern, support and solidarity.
In Solidarity and Struggle,
