For those interested in learning more about the current wave of human and civil rights abuses in the Georgia DOC the Prison and Jail Project, a non profit grassroots group in Georgia, has published a 45 page booklet titled "Stop Human Rights Abuses in Georgia Prisons." The booklet provides a broad but detailed overview of the Georgia prison system under the command of Wayne Garner. It includes copies of numerous newspaper articles (many of which were used as source material for the above articles); letters from prisoners; excerpts from court pleadings filed on behalf of prisoner plaintiffs; copies of letters sent to the U.S. Department of Justice seeking an investigation into the abuses; editorials from local papers condemning the brutality and much more. The booklet provides a wealth of information that PLN cannot due to our space limitations.
