Fri Jun 11 2004Anti-G8 Arrestees Accuse SF Sheriffs of Psychological Torture, Physical Violence in Jail
Fri Jun 11 2004Anti-G8 Arrestees Tortured in SF Jail
6/11/2004:The remaining anti-G8 protesters arrested during Tuesday's SF Reclaim the Streets action have been released after two days of jail solidarity, in which they collectively refused to give their names to the authorities. The release deal required the Jane and John Does to provide their names and dates of birth in exchange for all charges being dropped. Upon their release, some of the released prisoners have accused the SF Sheriff's Department of using intimidation, deception, psychological torture, physical violence and pain compliance in the jail -- practices which are apparently routine in jails, prisons and youth facilities throughout California. Report from Inside 850 Bryant Street According to the report, guards opened the window to the women's cell, allowing inmates and guards to watch the women use the bathroom. They denied the arrestees blankets and would not allow them to speak to medical personnel. They pulled hair and twisted arms, legs, fingers and necks to the breaking point, picked male arrestees up by their jaws and sat on male arrestees' chests until they cut off their air supply and forced them unconscious. During the 48-hour detention, supporters gathered outside the jail for music and a guerrilla video screening, and spoke before the police commission.
5:50pm: According to RTC Legal Support, one additional arrestee who had been hospitalized was arraigned today and was scheduled to be released this afternoon.
One arrestee thanks supporters.
