Plain Fact

There are many wonderful officers, male and female, in the Campbell County Sheriff's Office (CCSO) and Campbell County Detention Center (CCDC).  There are also a few who exhibit criminal conduct in their everyday work life, and they should be removed immediately when identified after reviewing videotape.

Local Reporting

On July 13, 2023, the Gillette News Record ran a headline and article about Uinta County inmates reporting mistreatment in their detention center.  The Gillette News Record is located in Campbell County, in north-east Wyoming.  Uinta County is located in the extreme south-west of Wyoming.  If you were to drive from Gillette, WY it is impossible to drive any further than Uinta County without leaving the state.

The Gillette News Record has not run an article on the reported mistreatment of inmates in Campbell County Detention Center.

Civilian Employee at CCDC Openly Solicited Threats

An inmate reported that someone identifying as a "nurse" came to the cell block door to deliver prescription medications.  She deliberately interrupted the targeted inmate's friendly conversation with a guard to reprimand the inmate for what was said during a phone call that happened the previous day, when the targeted inmate was describing CCSO and CCDC's criminal behavior towards inmates.  Her comments were made loudly, in a public area, enabling everyone in the cell-block to overhear.

That event marks a date and time where the attitudes of other inmates towards the targeted prisoner changed in an openly negative way, including threats of murder and other violence.  When established inmates fear retribution when a new inmate makes waves, that's a sign that there is a deeply insidious criminal culture within Wyoming's applied model of law enforcement.

Prescription Medication and Diet Are Not Optional

It has apparently been known (for a long time) that CCDC employees routinely withhold prescription medicines from inmates - including medicines that treat heart disease, high blood pressure, anxiety, mental disorders, seizure disorders, nerve pain, PTSD, traumatic brain injury and diabetes.  Perhaps this only occurs on weekends and holidays when the regular nursing staff is absent.

On July 6, 2023, it was reported by an eye witness that a uniformed detention officer withheld a Muslim inmate's kosher meal from him, despite the fact that it was prepared and ready for distribution.  The Muslim's kosher meal was right there on the cart, labelled KOSHER, while the uniformed guard insisted that the Muslim prisoner must accept and eat the food on a different non-kosher tray.

For at least one meal, that Muslim prisoner was given the choice to violate the most basic tenets of his faith, or starve.  Diabetic prisoners are given the choice to eat pure carbs or starve at every single meal, no matter how severe their body's reaction is to high blood sugar which may include painful rashes, non-healing wounds, etc.  There is no option to eat just the non-carb items because the vast majority of meals have no meat, protein, vegetables, or fruit.

As far back as 2017, the Federal Bureau of Prisons released an extensive document about the importance of diet, especially for diabetic inmates.

What's the Problem?

These deprivations violate federal law, no matter who the victim is and no matter who the perpetrator is.

It makes little difference whether the illegal actions by sheriff's office employees are incompetent or evil.  Violation of federal law is the result, and these repeated violations go unaddressed in Campbell County, Wyoming.

CCSO and CCDC violate federal law (including crimes as hardcore as clearly defined felonies) casually and with impunity.

These illegal activities include violations of civil rights and basic human rights, and are perpetrated by so-called Law Enforcement and Corrections Officers across the state of Wyoming.

Americans Address the Problem

In 2021, over in Teton County it was reported that "The Teton Truth has launched as a nonpartisan, nonprofit watchdog and news operation dedicated to helping the community and protecting the rights of local citizens against wrongful convictions and other injustices."

In 2023 Laramie, Wyoming approved the creation of a police advisory board.

God Bless Americans!

While the criminal activity by law enforcement officers and public servants is well-documented, there is no penalty for crimes committed deliberately and sometimes with malice by persons whose one job is to protect the population from criminal behavior.

In 2023 let's get some resolutions over to the law makers that address penalties for crimes committed during their work day by law enforcement officers, whether elected public officials or whether paid public servants.  Then pray for elected legislators and the decent folk in law enforcement to have the courage to do their jobs.

Thank you for reading. The purpose of my campaigns is to highlight corruption and to get assistance from anyone who is able and willing to help return Gillette and Campbell County and Wyoming to American Ideals, and hopefully a culture that applies the law equally to all citizens regardless of position or social class. Thank you so much for the efforts you are making and have already made. Please forward to everyone that you know who might be interested in the information I share. God Bless You, and God Bless America.
