Today's raw, real-time posts at the Telegram channel American Gulag Chronicles document only the latest in the acts of daily brutality committed against the January 6 prisoners who are being held in their sub-constitutional conditions at the Central Detention Facility in Washington, D.C., also known as the American Gulag.

What is happening to our political prisoners is so awful it's unreal.

From DC Gulag: James McGrew

They just brought, Mac back in to the unit, they are placing him on lockdown in a upstairs cell here with us on the unit....This is all well more than Bullshit, we want Answers to why Officers that are named in Lawsuits for their conduct against us as January 6th defendants are still working our units. We want answers from the Department Of Justice and the US Marshall's Service. We need people to demand these questions are Answered. [Emphasis added.]

Ok they have everyone back in the unit, however they are placing them all on lockdown in upstairs cells.

This msg relayed from Guy Refitt by Randy Ireland.

Lt. Lancaster just came on the unit and assaulted Ronald McAbee. Everyone saw what happened. She spayed him O.C. spray and ERT came and locked down the unit. McAbee was cuffed up. The Correction Officer opened the door to let MacAbee get his morning meds from the nurse. He walked approximately 25 feet to the nurse and was alone and distanced. She grabbed him and then sprayed him in the face. She sprayed him a second time while he was being cuffed. All over him not having a mask on.

12:45am [DW: pm?] they brought Ronnie Sandlin back and 15 minutes later they brought McAbee back in but relocated him to a different cell with very limited view of the camera. A Ryan Samsel situation is brewing.

They took Ryan Nichols, Bart Shively to the hole and they are expected to come back but relocated to different cells. Not sure why the moves are happening. This place has lost its mind today.

Ryan and Bart arrived back on the unit at 1:15pm and relocated into different cells. The electronic grievance system has been broken for over a month and they won't hand out paper forms. This place is falling apart fast.

It appears they don't want any of us in the hole because it interferes with their drug operations. Every since the videos got out, they literally refuse to put us in there.

We were attacked again. Please let the world know. Today, at 11:45, Ron MacAbee was going to get his medication. He was confronted by Lt. Lancaster, who then proceeded to mace him directly in his face for not complying fast enough. (Notably, he was already at the med cart where he would need to have his mouth uncovered to take his meds anyhow.) When the pod, rightfully got up in arms about an unjustified assault; the ERT team, (which is this jail's version of SWAT), came running in to assault the rest of us. Several of the officers were grabbing people by their necks and jamming mace canisters against their faces as they shoved people into their cells so they could rough handle Mac without interference. He was maced at least twice in the face, that I saw, and probably more than that. Everything was completely peaceful before this. Most people were still sleeping or reading in their cells. These people at this jail are sick, racists with a violent political agenda. The world needs to know this immediately!!!

They are trying to Charge Ryan Nicoles, Bart Shively ,and Ronnie Sandlin with assaulting Officer Lt. Lancaster. These guys did nothing wrong other then come to the aid of a brother who was on the ground after being tackled. They literally stood around and yelled at officers to stop assaulting January 6th defendant Macabee . Mac was sprayed by officers at point blank range, all for being non combative and demanding answers to why he had been hit and sprayed repeatedly. America, this is gross abuse of power and has to stop. We need your help.
