I would like to come forward and let you all know of what is going on at the Utah State Prison. My husband is one of the inmates there and his 8th Amendment rights are being severely broken. Here's the scoop; on November 12, 2011 he ended up falling down a flight of stairs after having had multiple seizures that day. He had asked for help multiple times that day and they would not listen to his pleas for help. He finally took the seizure med that they had been giving him since April 2011 of which he is allergic to. That resulted in him being extremely delirious. Causing him to fall down the stairs. Now what they did about it was utterly cruel and inhumane. They placed him in a strip cell for falling down the stairs then waited two days before even checking him over to see if he'd injured himself. They called it a suicide prevention. Well in that fall he shattered his left shoulder and tore the muscular structure from the bone. To this day they still have not treated it and he's in agonizing pain. Now let's just make these matters that much worse shall we. Last year there was a man who starved to death in a Salt Lake County jail in a matter of months. My husband is quickly leading up to falling in that category. He has stomach issues that require a special diet low in starches/carbohydrates, a higher protein content along with ensure as a supplement. They've refused to give him this diet. So now he's approximately 35 pounds under weight and sicker than a dog. They still refuse to take him off the medication he's allergic to for his seizures. I've contacted the ACLU, gone through prison hierarchy and other agencies trying to get him the help he so badly needs. The problem is no one is listening. So I've started a petition to help him. Hopefully it'll help me get him a parole and to a hospital. So here's the project: read and sign the petition then pass it on to others it's that simple. Help me stand up to the State of Utah and say this will not be tolerated! Here's the link: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/parole-christopher-manhard/ Copy it and paste it to your browser, it'll take you strait there. Also as a side note on the petition it has pictures of him from December of 2010 and then his most recent prison pic from a few weeks ago. Remember he was just incarcerated on March 14, 2011 and is now on deaths door step if something is not done soon. As per requests for information recently: History it was a Burglary that was also a framing! Meaning that I was standing there when the land lady gave him permission to clean out an adjoining apartment. (I was listening through the door because I had a bad feeling about it.) Cops said I was a liar and was trying to protect him! Ok goes to show when you tell the truth it's never believed by cops! Tell them a lie and they'll believe it though! Yes, I have gone to the Attorney General, the ACLU, the Warden and many other agencies and people. I am also carrying out a door to door petition, however it is difficult doing it with two small children in tow. Part of the reason for the online one to, being I am disabled and a home maker along with having health issues. I've been told by several lawyers that I have a case, but they also say they're not about to go against the State of Utah. To risky for their Bar Cards, which I think is ridiculous but that's beside the point. The one's that are willing to go against the state want a huge down payment that I can not afford on my disability income. Yes, I have also gone to the Media to no avail! Also it has been asked what exactly I am asking for. That would be signatures on a petition to help parole my husband and get him to a hospital before it's to late. At the above listed link. Along with other info the only reason they've been refusing a parole is they can't make more than $40 a month off of him that way. They're able to make $40,000 a term off of him right now as he sits. Which adds up to $120,000 a year of tax payer and private donations a year. Due to him not having any restitution or victims that is what it all comes down to money and human trafficking.
