Letters from Kevin Walsh in Maricopa County Jail

New Times Article is "unauthorized material"!


Just what was the "unauthorized material"?

It was a copy of the New Times article where the Phoenix Police f*cked over Luciano Arriaga Jr. In some ways it is very close to how the Secret Service and Phoenix Police have f*cked over Kevin Walsh.

I guess you can use your First Amendment right to send mail to any of the inmates in Sheriff Joe's gulag as long as you don't bad mouth the government.

[I do not approve of the use of the term "gulag" to refer to the Maricopa County Jails. I would not insult the Soviet gulag in that way. As far as the issue of magazine articles is concerned, magazines, books and newspapers in jail must be sent directly from the publisher. A torn page of a magazine was not acceptable, but a photocopy was. --Kevin Walsh]

In the past where Sheriff Joe's thugs returned mail to Kevin they didn't bother to tell Kevin about it. Since then a claim was filed against the Maricopa County Sheriff for violating the civil rights of the sender of the letter when it was returned it looks like Sheriff Joe's thugs are delevering one of the following pink slips to Kevin each time they return his mail.
