*UPDATE* Ammon Bundy Shackled for 12 Hours – No Food or Water

Is this how innocent men are treated?

Ammon Bundy Shackled for 12 Hours

No Food or Water

by Shari Dovale

After spending more than a month in Solitary Confinement, Ammon and Ryan Bundy are back in the hole.

Ammon and Ryan Bundy, two of Cliven Bundy’s sons facing trial stemming from the Bunkerville Protest, have been faced with cruel and inhuman abuses from the Federal prison system.

They have endured weeks of solitary confinement with no proper sewage or hygiene. Living in a small cell with little-to-no ventilation all because they finally refused to be assaulted on a regular basis through strip searches.

They have endured strip searches going to and from video visits. Yes, you heard that right. If they receive a visit on a TV monitor, in a building that has no physical visitors and no way for a prisoner to come into contact with anyone that is not a guard, they have been forced into a strip search both coming and going from their visit.

They are not allowed to talk to their attorney’s without enduring strip searches, both coming and going.

When they finally had enough of the violation of their 4th amendment rights, the guards put them into solitary confinement. This small cell had no proper water or sewage facilities. The toilets did not work. They were given no toilet paper, or any other hygiene items.

They were kept in this small cell for over a month.

From an update by Lisa Bundy, Ammon’s wife, we hear this:

Just a few days after their release from Solitary, a guard found a shirt on Ammon’s cot. The guard decided that was a violation and shackled Ammon before putting him back to solitary.

Ryan tried to speak up for his brother and was also put into solitary.

But, they left Ammon shackled with his hands behind his back. He had been forced to sleep through the night while shackled.

He is still in the shackles! He has been shackled, without food or water for over 12 hours!

Has the warden been made aware of this? We need to make him understand.

We also hear from Pete Santilli, via Deb Jordan, here:

This morning Pete told me that: Last night Ammon and Ryan Bundy were once again sent to the hole — He went to the Chief and asked that he please do something about Ammon and Ryan being targeted by the guards — You can literally see their eyes on them watching their every move, Pete said — Some of the guards understand this and are sympathetic but it does little good —

Anyway, they were sleeping when it happened — Pete is a bit away from them so was not a witness but talked to those who were —

Pete says: Ammon reportedly fell asleep with a unauthorized shirt on his rack — “It is not uncommon for us to roll up a shirt and use it as a pillow — or maybe Ammon just forgot it was the there, either way, the guard saw it and started harassing him — at some point Ryan came over and grabbed the shirt from the CO’s hands — and that’s why he is in trouble —

This morning I spoke with the Chief who is being a real tuff guy asshole — I told him this was bullshit and that there were plenty of witnesses who saw what happened — He said —

“Then they need to fill out a report”

I then asked, ” So you want me to tell everyone to fill out a report?”

He answered ” Sure, and when you do, I’m going to charge you with trying to start an insurrection .. ”

Pete also said that Ammon and Ryan have tried desperately to do their best to stay under the radar since they spent 40 days in the hole — The bottom line is they are being targeted — The Guards are using anything as an excuse to punish them — or anyone who tries to take up for them ..

The last Pete heard, Ammon had been confined to a small space, shackled overnight, with no food or water —

But, even assuming the worst case scenario, that doesn’t warrant 12 hours shackled in 2×8 cell and no food or water. This really is Cruel and Inhumane treatment.

We cannot allow this to continue. We must contact the prison, and all of your elected officials. This abuse must stop. These men have NOT been convicted of any crime. They have been incarcerated, without bail, for well over a year. The trial has been pushed back again, so their rights to a speedy trial continue to be violated.

Our Constitution guarantees that these men should be assumed innocent until proven guilty. Is this how innocent men are treated? Is this how you would expect to be treated under similar circumstances?

Does anyone have a family member, or a friend, that was unjustly arrested? Forced to defend themselves of charges that were untrue? Should they have been treated this way?

This is our Federal Government. This is what the people have not been paying attention to.

It is time to grab their attention.

  1. I SO appreciate how Redoubt News is on top of this. I just sent a message to them, and this whole article has already been ‘printed’ !! Thank you. Thank you for the notification. Thank you for the phone numbers to call. Thank you for finding these guys’ story applicable.

  2. What we must do is start a Divestment campaign. There are many pension funds that are shareholders in this corporation. Do the people profiting know that this is how they get their money? I’m putting together a list of every shareholder I can find and we must contact them all with the shameful nature of their source of income.

    Did you know that Thurgood Marshall Jr. has served as a director and member of the Nominating and Governance Committee of the private prison corporation called Corrections Corporation of America since December 2002. Marshall is a partner in the law firm of Bingham McCutchen LLP in Washington D.C., and a principal in Bingham Consulting Group LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Bingham McCutchen LLP that assists business clients with communications, political and legal strategies. Marshall, the son of the historic Supreme Court Justice, Thurgood Marshall, has held appointments in each branch of the federal government, including Cabinet Secretary to President Clinton and Director of Legislative Affairs and Deputy Counsel to Vice President Al Gore. In his role under President Clinton, Marshall was the chief liaison between the President and the agencies of the Executive Branch. He serves on the American Bar Association Election Law Committee and serves as a board member of the National Fish & Wildlife Foundation, the National Womens Law Center and the Supreme Court Historical Society, and serves on the Ethics Oversight Committee of the United States Olympic Committee. Marshall earned a bachelor’s degree in 1978 and a juris doctor degree in 1981 from the University of Virginia, after which he clerked for United States District Judge Barrington D. Parker.

    • Great ideas Trish. Thurgood Marshall, Senior, and Supreme Court justice, was vehemently opposed to the Bail Reform Act, which is the elephant in the room that makes everything happening to Ammon Bundy and others, possible. Had we not passed the BRA, Ammon and others would be out on bail and would be preparing their defense with their attorneys. So, how do we proceed with the Divestment Campaign?

  3. The number for inspector General at top is Nevada State corrections and they said they aren’t the office to call. Please get the word out. She said to call the Attorney General.

  4. so great to see these arguments posted here-this is the path.

    Mrs Stewart, thanks for all that yall do in keeping us informed. I realize that yall have concentrated your efforts in the political / government arena, but that facility is a business, a corporation. What I am going to suggest below Mr. Bundy may not be fond of and I myself find this on the edge of being retaliatory [vindictive]. Here is the question. “How do you take political concerns into the corporate world?”. Corporations have executives, they have boards of directors, and most importantly they have publicly traded shares. When the elected officials and the folks they delegate authority to are unresponsive to public concerns then corporate executives and boards of directors have to be questioned in the public arena. A corporate officials main interest is protecting the investment by shareholders [stock price]. If being a constitutionalist is not producing results then let us be capitalist.

  5. These things are also happening in Huntington Indiana. Lawyers are useless unless you pay them $10,000.

    The ACLU is considering my cousin’s case. He is innocent, been incarcerated in jail over a year, without a trial. Now, they’re playing the mental defect card. His court appointed attorney is useless to him, and he didn’t even try to defend him, nor will he review the case with his client. Evidently, it’s all about the money they’re getting from the GOV for housing more inmates than they are are setup for, by housing them in the TV room. There is no sane reason for their actions.

    • Prison reform is what should be pursued as well. If the government can just lock you up and have they’re way with you how will anything be done..

      Conceal your identity, cover your tracks, and do not alert them to the fact that you may not comply.

  6. My oldest brother was incarcerated as a US citizen born in afghanistan. He was being held on terrorist charges because he had fought jn the afghan war during the russian invasion which btw was funded by america.

    They couldnt find anything on him after 2 years incarceration in federal prison going thru exactly the things being described by the Bundy’s.

    The federal prosecutor told him that he would be in prison indefinitely unless he chooses voluntary deportation with the clause if never returning ti the US.

    After 30,000 dollars… 2 years in federal prison… having 7 children he decided it was time to just let go and he opted for voluntary deportation.

    Sadly Ammon doesnt even have that option.

    But perhaps now some people out here can u derstand how so many thousands of muslims were incarcerated and eithwr sent to prison for life in trumped up
    Charges or they were deported.

    I remember when I would tell my brother not to speak out against the govts oppression of people … he would say it was his constitutional right to do so……..
