Some of you know that the Nebraska State Penn has been on lock down for a few months, and that Mondo told the Nebraska Jericho office that he felt the lock down was undermining the heath of the older inmates. For the first time in 30 years he mentioned to me that he had been repeatedly going to the infirmary.
I arrived in Nebraska last evening only to learn that Mondo is in the prison hospital unable to breathe with a breathing disorder called copd. They say he hasn't slept in days. Only one person from the outside has seen him since he has been in the prison hospital. She is Mary Dickenson, a member of the local defense committee. She said a prison guard stood too close by for him to speak freely. I spoke to his attorney Tim Ashford late this afternoon, who will demand to see him on Monday.
Please call the warden and demand Mondo's transfer to a regular hospital outside of the prison (the prison is notorious for horrible care).
Please help us as I do not want any harm to come to this former member of the BPP. He is also one who I love, please help if you can.
