Death Watch Journal for Kevin Varga - DAY 10

As I sit here typing these very words this special team of officers is on the section tearing things up. This team was put together to search out cell phones and drugs and money hidden in the cells of death row inmates, yet since its conception they have found none of these things. They are all bullies who want to tea things apart, and that is all they do all day long. They totally disregard respect as they throw things out. I thought the fact that I have a matter of weeks to live they would leave me alone, but I have learned that this place is designed not only to house us until the state can legally murder us but also to destroy us mentally. They succeed with so many people. One guy here on death watch had a nervous breakdown last night, and they had to sedate him with clubs. They left him bleeding on the floor of his cell for three hours before a nurse came by to see if he was ok. He was still out cold, but she said he’d be fine.

I fear of losing what little sanity is left to me.

You say no contraband how ever been found, I think you have forgotten the fact that Taber was found with a cell phone and even though you might not have used it others on DR did.

@Texson
It appears you have a working knowledge of DR to be able to correct Kevin in his statement, given this fact I find it disturbing that you take the time to comment on a blog from an inmate, about to be put to death to criticize his memory, or his honesty. What I also feel is odd is that you point out a cell phone was found but don't deny that an inmate having a mental episode was severely beaten, or that the DR security officers are bullies that try to break inmates down mentally.
