Date



Dear ,

I’m writing out of concern for the safety and welfare of Sherman Martin Austin (Booking #0309300141), a federal prisoner currently located at the Central Detention Center in San Bernardino County, California. He is due to be transferred to a Federal penitentiary within six to eight weeks. However, he is currently the target of death threats from several

white-supremacist groups and is being kept in solitary for the ostensible purpose of protecting him from these hate groups, some members of which have placed a price on Sherman’s head.

Sherman is a non-violent offender. He is only twenty years of age and has been evaluated by a court-appointed psychologist as being completely non-violent and idealistic. A county detention facility is not the place for a non-violent offender who is in danger of being killed for his color and beliefs. I am afraid that should Sherman remain in CDC he will be injured or killed. We feel that by being placed in a Federal penitentiary there is less likelihood of Sherman being harmed or even killed.

We demand the immediate transfer of Sherman Martin Austin to a Federal detention facility, for his own safety and well-being, and in the meantime the continuance of protective custody to ensure his safety and survival. I will appreciate an immediate response concerning this letter.

Thank you,



THIS IS ONE OF THE POSTS THREATENING HIS LIFE:

One of the highlights of my days are coming to this site and seeing the post about Sherman Austin's sentence. Now he's trapped, ready for the murdering by his inmates, in which many of my colleagues are unfortunatly participating in. One more of your "revolutionaries" has been taken from you all. That is a sign of your weakness. My colleagues are there because they showed no weakness. I read that in Texas, a nigger approached one of my fellow party members, threatening him, and when the first punch was thrown the pigs arrived, taking my fellow party member away for fighting. All though he didn't through the punch, he was still arrested. What I find is funny is two days later the niggers were found shot to death in their homes, along with their nigger families, shows what niggers are. Dumb. Thinking they could get away. But the man arrested is still there, waiting for some black pride or "anarchist" to come along his path, possibly the same prison as little ol' sherman. Good Luck old pal. It's also quite sad I have to put Austin's name up to be considered relevant. FUCK YOU N*****S.

Hail Hitler

Himmler



PLEASE TAKE ACTION IMMEDIATELY!

WE WILL NOT BE INTIMIDATED!

SILENCE IS DEFEAT!

THANK YOU!!
