*{CARTA DE PROTESTA}

Sirs:

I (we) am very concerned with the treatment that the guards have inflicted upon Mr. Emerson Rudd, executed in Texas on November 15th 2001 before his death. We were shocked to learn that those that, under the guise of providing prison security, the guards would deliver such physical abuse on an hand-cuffed man as a valid method of control.

We believe that a democratic country does not have the need to impose such physical punishment to a human being on the day he is scheduled for execution and only a few hours from it. With this new episode, Texas has again called the attention of the entire world on the situation in its prisons. Justice officers should operate for the security and protection of the citizens, and no citizen is protected by the mistreatment of a man that had been made impotent by the use of gas and other violent methods.

Texas (along with the United States) is too often being considered as the place in the democratic world where no attention is ever given to human rights. The denial of human rights is a very thorny path for a state. In inflicting violence to Mr. Rudd, Texas has demonstrated that its officers are trained to control offenders only with the use of physical force and this is, we believe, an open admission of professional failure.

Again, the message you gave the world is that violence is the only method known to the
TDJC to keep control of prisoners. We were also surprised learning that in the aftermath of the violence against Mr. Rudd, ALL prisoners have been put on lockdown status. We invite you to consider that this extreme reaction will not make the situation any better, and the only result you will obtain is probably that of creating more tensions.

We appeal to you to give back to all of the prisoners of Polunsky Unit the normal conditions of imprisonment. Human beings are human beings. There is an unwritten law requiring humane treatment of human beings that the prison authorities should consider perhaps more often.
