Warden Greg Fizer
Dear Warden Greg Fizer:
Please send me the form so I can file a claim for damages against your prison as required by Arizona law. But donít worry I wonít be filing a law suit in the Arizona courts.
Iím sure that in your long history of working in the corrections business your aware that one pleasure sadistic guards enjoy is returning an inmates mail to the sender telling the sender the lie that the mail canít be delivered because the inmate is no longer at that prison.
This mean sadistic practice hurts both the inmate and the inmateís friends and relatives. It also costs the people corresponding with the inmate money in wasted postage stamps and time wasted resending the mail and tracing down where the inmate is really located. I have two friends who have been in Maricopa County jail, your state prison in Tucson, and the federal prison across the street from your prison which is also is in Tucson. It seems the sadistic guards at all three prisons get their jollies by sending back mail marked with ďThis inmate is no longer at this facilityĒ.
I guess I am a party pooper because when I send an inmate a letter and it gets returned saying the inmate is no longer in that jail I file a lawsuit in federal court suing the warden and prison mail handlers for civil rights violations per U.S.C. 42 ß1983. You may have spoken to your buddy Warden Carolyn A. Sabol at the federal prison across the street from you about the lawsuit I mailed her. She hasnít made me any offers to settle out of court and she always ignores my Federal Freedom of Information requests so I will probably file the lawsuit this week in the Phoenix Federal Court. About the most I can lose is the case will get moved to the Federal Court in Tucson.
You may want to ask her for a copy of the law suit because I plan to file the same lawsuit against you in federal court. The only difference will be I will change the names of the two inmates in her prison to the one inmate in your prison. And of course in your lawsuit I will add 14th Amendment violations because by definition federal government officials canít violate a personís 14th Amendment right only state government officials like you can.
Iím willing to settle out of court. If I file the lawsuit it will take about 40 hours of attorneys time for your defense of the case. Perhaps that will motivate you to tell the sadistic guards in your mail room to stop jerking around the inmates mail because if it happens again I will file a lawsuit each time it happens. Also I have sent a copy of the lawsuit to my friend in your prison and these lawsuits are very easy to file and who knows the inmates in your prison could start filing them against you if you continue to jerk around their mail. The lawsuit is only 5 pages long and even a monkey could cut and paste the 6 lines that need to be changed to make a new copy of the lawsuit. And I donít think you can jerk the inmates around for filing a case in Federal Court like you can jerk them for filing a case in the Arizona courts.
