In April of 2010, a group of inmates at SCI Dallas prison in Pennsylvania placed bedding over their cell door windows in order to draw the attention of high-ranking administrative personnel to the abuse they were suffering at the hands of prison guards in the solitary confinement unit where they were being housed. Instead of receiving the help they sought, they were slapped with riot charges.
On December 9, 2013, they will be fighting those charges in court and in the process present testimony describing details of their and others’ brutal treatment while in Dallas’s solitary confinement. Such maltreatment ranges from food tampering and meal with-holding, to beatings, use of a torture chair, and death.
The group of men are known as the Dallas 6.
Below is an interview with Shandre Delaney, mother of one of the Dallas 6–Carrington Keys–about the details of the case conducted for WJWN Radio and The Other America Files.
