Sussex 1 has the windows in the cells and inside the Housing Units covered up. With all of this lockdown it's easy to become confused about the day. Is the Sun out? Is it raining? Is the wind blowing? Is it dark out? The shyt is psychological as hell man. Like, I'm very depressed in here. This shit is a form of torture. What the hell is the purpose? For years prisoners could see out the window at S1 but in 2016 Warden Zook came around and blacked out the Housing Units and all cells in them. When I ask guys who were here then what his reasoning was they say he never gave one. I think it's time S1 administrators explain to citizens why they're engaging in this torture in their names! This prison belongs to YOU the tax paying Virginian. Please help end this tortuous practice of sensory deprivation being implemented on Us! Demand The Agency explain the purpose for this policy!
Stop the Inhumanity!
