Hal Turner's Family Reveals The Inhumane Conditions Of His Incarceration On The First Anniversary Of The Department Of Justice's War Against Him

June 24th, 2010 is the first anniversary of the war against Hal Turner launched by the Federal government a year ago. While the first shots were fired by the state of Connecticut, the Department of Justice soon got involved and launched a criminal inquisition which continues to this day. He is about to be tried by the Feds a third time for the same offense; while this is legal because the first two trials ended in mistrials, it shows the utterly vindictive nature of the Federal leviathan. The fact that Hal Turner was never a White Nationalist, but merely a paleoconservative who agreed to masquerade as a White Nationalist under FBI tutelage from 2002-2007 doesn't matter to the Feds.

Although Turner turned out to be a fake, the Federal persecution directed against him is an example of what high-profile racial activists can expect if they become too prominent. Ask Bill White how that works; unlike Turner, White was a genuine White Nationalist. Ask Edgar Steele how that's working right now. Hal Turner's family has now provided an account of the conditions experienced by Turner while he was in custody. They are quite similar to what Matt Hale experienced. You can read the full account on FamilyOfHalTurner; critical excerpts presented below (after the jump).

His initial detention in Essex County Jail in New Jersey:

Turner remained in the Essex County Jail – in protective custody -- for about the next two weeks. The Essex County Sheriff’s Department told Turner that news of his arrest “was all over the newspapers and on TV” and that he needed to be put in protective custody because “in jail, if people think you’re famous, they can get famous too by hurting you.”

Protective Custody is actually solitary confinement. A prisoner is locked-in a cell 23 hours a day; allowed out for only one hour per day to shower or walk the 50’ long hallway for exercise.” The prisoner eats, drinks, sleeps and stays in his cell, alone.

Transported to the Federal Transfer Center (FTC) in Oklahoma City, OK, adjoining Will Rogers World Airport:

Inside, new arrivals are strip-searched (naked) in groups of ten men at a time, given new prison clothing and sent to a bull-pen for processing. There’s paperwork to fill out; a prisoner’s medical history, whom to notify if a prisoner dies, etc. Very late that night, Turner was brought to his cell – in general population – with his new celly, Carlos Torres, a 30-something year old, convicted double murderer from Tennessee. For writing his opinion, Hal Turner was now bunking with a murderer.

According to family members we spoke to, Turner stayed in general population in Oklahoma for about the next week. Then, one morning around 3 AM, he was told “Turner, pack your shit, you’re leaving.” A while later, he was taken downstairs, strip-searched, handcuffed, chained and shackled along with maybe 200 other prisoners, and made to wait for several hours to board the plane out. Turns out, the plane was broken. Everybody had to be taken back in, strip-searched again, given new clothes, again, and sent back to the cell block.

According to US Marshals at the FTC, the plane had trouble with its air conditioning. A few weeks or so earlier, in Utah, the air conditioning on a similar plane failed with a plane full of prisoners. The Marshals said the prisoners were made to stay on the plane, on the tarmac in desert heat, for six hours until one of them, a forty-something year old, dropped dead on the plane from heat stroke! Marshals said a lot of prisoners were vomiting from the heat, so they wouldn’t put any prisoners on the plane until they knew the Air Conditioning was working. Gee, it only took one death for them to figure that out. [Ed. Note: This information was obviously suppressed by the government; I found no media stories describing this incident.]

A few hours after being returned to the cell block, several uniformed officers from the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) came looking for Turner. According to family members we spoke to, they took him out in the hallway, threw him up against a wall and handcuffed him. When Turner asked what was going on, he was told, “We’re taking you to the SHU, the Special Housing Unit.” When Turner asked what he’d done wrong to warrant being punished, he was told “You have been declared a high threat risk; a threat to government.“ Turner was taken into “Administrative Segregation,” (Ad. Seg.). In common parlance, he was put “in the hole.”

The SHU [Segregated Housing Unit] is where prisoners are sent when they violate prison rules. It houses the worst of the worst. Hal Turner wrote an OPINION the government didn’t like and he was now being treated like a terrorist!


In the SHU, Turner’s new celly was a guy named Thomas English. Mr. English was a drug dealer whose little brother got murdered in a drug deal gone bad. Mr. English hunted down the dealer who killed his little brother and murdered the dealer. When Mr. English was sent to prison, he claims to have encountered a Cho-Mo (child molester). According to Thomas English, he “shanked” the Cho-Mo so badly, the guy lost one testicle and needed a colostomy bag. This was Hal Turner’s new celly. Mr. English was freed from the SHU a few days later and got word to the Turner family that Turner had been placed in The SHU. Turner himself was not allowed to make any phone calls and could only write letters once a week – on a Wednesday -- so Turner had no way to get word to anyone about his new circumstance.

Later, Turner got a new celly, Matt Benjamin, a convicted gun runner from Texas. According to Hal’s wife, Phyllis, this guy entered the cell, got on the top bunk, pulled a sheet over himself (head to toe) and announced from underneath the sheet “This is my fortress of solitude, I do not want to be disturbed.” Oh. Great. We won’t tell you what this guy was DOING underneath his sheet, but you might venture a guess. Imagine being trapped in a cell with this for 23 hours a day.

Transported to the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Chicago:

The ride from Chicago’s O’Hare airport to the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) takes about 45 minutes. MCC is a regular-looking, 24 story office building in downtown Chicago. While it looks like an office building, it is a medium security federal prison.

Upon arrival, the bus entered a secure garage where prisoners are normally taken to a bull pen, given new clothes, given a prison ID card and assigned cells. Not Hal Turner. He was taken off the bus first, walked directly to a waiting elevator, whisked to the 11th floor, taken off, strip searched - where the crown on his front tooth was taken from him because “it might be used as a weapon” - then walked directly to an empty cell in The SHU. Hal Turner was back in 23 hour lockdown. Alone.

MCC has all sorts of prisoners in it: Murderers, Rapists, Armed Robbers, Gang-Bangers, Drug King Pins and the like. While all of them got to be in general population, socialize with each other, play games, watch TV, watch movies, use the telephone, eat together, shower every day and even work-out on the rooftop gym, Hal Turner could not. Hal was locked down 23 hours a day. No TV, no radio, no television, no videos, no games, no phone. He was told he would be allowed to phone his lawyer once per week, and his family only once per MONTH!

While the murderers, rapists, robbers and the like could use the rooftop gym once a day, Turner could not. Instead, he was taken to a “cage” within the SHU. The “Cage” is a 10’ x 20’ cage in the middle of the cellblock with a pull-up bar and a broken exercise bike in it. That was Turner’s “recreation.”

Turner was allowed to shower only on Mondays, Wednesdays a Fridays, but there was an additional snag. Since Turner was declared a high threat risk and a threat to government, he was placed on “3-Man Hold.” What that meant is that whenever Turner was to be taken out of his cell for any reason, three (3) guards had to be present to physically HOLD ONTO HIM as he was walked wherever he was going! In the Bureau of Prisons, Fridays are considered “weekends” so there wasn’t enough prison staff to meet the 3-Man Hold criteria. What this meant is that once Hal Turner got his one hour of recreation on Thursday, he was kept inside his cell, TWENTY FOUR (24) hours a day until Monday! No recreation and no shower over the weekends. His typical daily routine:

6:00 AM Lights on in the cell.

6:30 AM Breakfast served through the cell door.

7:00 AM Trash and trays collected through the cell door.

From 7:00 to 8:00 to 9:00 to 10:00 to 11:00 . . . . . . . nothing. No TV, no video, no radio, no games, no telephone, no one to talk to, nothing to read.

11:30 AM, Lunch is served through the cell door.

12:00 Noon, trash and trays collected.

From 12:00 to 1:00 to 2:00 to 3:00 to 4:00. . . . . . . nothing. No TV, no video, no radio, no games, no telephone, no one to talk to, nothing to read.

4:30 PM Dinner is served through the cell door.

5:00 Trash and trays collected.

From 5:00 to 6:00 to 7:00 to 8:00 to 9:00 to 10:00. . . . . . nothing. No TV, no video, no radio, no games, no telephone, no one to talk to, nothing to read.

10:00 Lights out in the cell.

That was Hal Turner’s schedule every day, from July 28 until September 10. Hal Turner endured isolation in the Essex County Jail (2 weeks), then got to general population for a week at the FTC in Oklahoma City, then got put back in isolation for a week there; then in isolation from July 28 through August 10 at the Bail Hearing, then back into isolation from August 10 through September 10 when a new Judge got involved in the case.

In state prisons, a person is not allowed to be held in isolation for more than 15 days because it is so psychologically damaging. Hal Turner endured 77 days.

Then it was back to Oklahoma City, where he was celled with a member of the Aryan Brotherhood:

On September 11, 2009, Turner was flown on a Con-Air flight back to the FTC in Oklahoma. With his status as an Intelligence Operative for the FBI now out in the open, where did the feds put Turner? Back in The SHU. . . . . . only this time with a celly named Willy Wilson. . . . . . . from the Aryan Brotherhood; the most-murderous prison gang in the country. Mr. Wilson is serving 34 years as a career criminal for Drug and weapons possession. His affiliation with the Aryan Brotherhood is indicated by his Tattoos.

So Hal Turner, who dared to write his opinion, found himself sitting in a federal prison cell with a member of Aryan Brotherhood. Knowing that his status with the FBI had been made public, the feds put him in what was probably the single most life-threatening environment possible. Hal Turner endured. [Ed. Note: It's obvious the Federal government would have had no problem if this AB guy had found out that Turner was an informant, and decided to snuff him.]

And finally, Hal Turner reveals why he publicly outed himself as an FBI informant:

At that Arraignment, AUSA William Hogan, who had been in contact with Turner’s Attorney for a full month prior, finally revealed that he intended to ask the court that Turner continue to be held without bail. Even though Hogan had Turner’s FBI file and even though it proved that Turner had worked for the FBI for years and was thoroughly trained in the lawful use of violent rhetoric, Hogan intended to ask for Turner to be kept under lock and key. It was a disgusting betrayal.

When Turner’s attorney informed Turner of Hogan’s plans, Turner instructed his Attorney to reveal in open court that Turner worked for the FBI. He did. The media went wild!

Take note that Hal Turner was put through all of this, even though he had not and has still not been convicted of any crime. To put Turner in an isolation cell for protection may be justified, but to deny him books, television, and opportunities to routinely contact his attorney and his family is punishment.

This is what ZOG does to political offenders in the United States nowadays.

Turner "came un-done" when he nominated "specific people" for "termination";

instead, he should have kept it "general";

like this, for instance!

better to "go down" like Bob Matthews and take 50+ ZOG-botz with you than end up in a ZOG gulag!

Don't do that! You might take out some of Taylor Bowles' "brothers in blue" as he calls police. Remember when he sided with ZOG on his blog and tried to pin a father and son who shot a cop as being Aryan Nation members?

Persecution Of Heroic Hal Turner Is Terrorism By ZOG-Mammon Fed Gov.
(Apollonian, 24 Jun 10)

Indeed, this entire affair regarding Hal Turner is simply gov. terrorism against the people by means of persecution of Hal Turner for his expression of opinion--which opinion regarding extermination of traitors I (and many others too) fully agree.

But ZOG-Mammon emp.-of-lies is strong due to their Fed COUNTERFEITING racket/scam/operation--see and for expo/ref. on US Federal Reserve Bank (Fed) fraud.

CONCLUSION: About the only thing at grass-roots we can really do is to continue preaching Christian anti-semitism (anti-Talmud, as Gosp.s MARK 7:1-13 and MATT 15:3-9), esp. against "Judeo-Christian" (JC--see and for expo/ref.) hereticalists and traitors who falsely say Christ was Jew (Talmudist) and support enemy terror-state of Israel which did 9-11 (see Honest elections and death to the Fed.

except for some "specialist areas" in the military where a white racialist might learn some valuable "skills" there is, in general, no reason what-the-FCK-so-ever for ANY white person to now be a part of ZOG's "apparatus"!

Hal Turner Was/Is Sincere Anti-Semite, Surely
(Apollonian, 24 Jun 10)

No dumb-ass, stupid punk at 9:11 am; Hal Turner, for all we know, is sincere anti-semite, and he worked for FBI AGAINST JEWS (as of SPLC, ADL, and MOSSAD) who tried to get him to work rather for them.

Besides, it's good to stand for right to free expression and hatred for corrupt judges. Honest elections and death to the Fed. Apollonian

Aryan Nations and the NSM have more cops in their ranks than any other pro-White organization. They aren't in there as good members either.

Anchorage Activist said...

Anonymous 9:11 A.M. - You're right; we "should" be jumping with joy. But the larger issue here is that ZOG is deliberately imposing death by a thousand cuts upon Hal Turner. ZOG has exposed its consummately evil core through this process. If I have an enemy, I would prefer to dispatch him quickly and cleanly, not torture him.

Don't forget - ZOG's using Hal Turner as a test bed to see how much they can get away with.

Wow....I'm practically speechless that any WN could possibly STILL support this ADMITTED INFORMANT for ZOG!!! I hope Hal gets all the torture his fat ass can take!

Turner Was Stinger For Jews; "WN" Is Just Front For Jews
(Apollonian, 24 Jun 10)

Anon at 3:18 PM--Turner was not necessarily an informer (inform about what?)--he was a stinger trap for Jews (ADL and SPLC) trying to connive him to conspiracy.

CONCLUSION: Besides, "WN" is just front for Jews trying to split gentiles--we need coalition of ALL GENTILES against Jews, this then best upon CHRISTIAN front--NOT "WN." Honest elections and death to the Fed. Apollonian

Willem said...

Anchorage Activist thanks for the updates. Hal broke the FIRST RULE:
Don't embarrass the Bureau.

As far as danger to Hal by being in a cell with a member of the HEROIN BROTHERHOOD, no danger at all.

I used to enjoy Hal, he has some real talent, I ignored his rants of violence as just cartoon braggadocio.
He could write very well and his TV presentations were very smooth, of course he didn't present information as David Duke does, so it was all a game for the agent role he was playing.

I wish that LEO also had to obey the law of the land but it appears that all too often they do not.

Hal is a despicable traitor to all that is good and decent, he betrayed the people who are interested in White Survival. His repeated attempts to get people in jeopardy with the law is something he should be charged with but won't I am sure.

I believe that Hal and all others who are either charged or convicted should be treated humanely and with a view towards correction.

However American prisons are a disgrace and affront to the honor of our nation.

I believe that the First Amendment is being chipped away by these prosecutions over speech.

With Kagan on the Supreme Court I would suggest that the further CRACK DOWN on the 1st Amendment will be obvious to all.

I would proffer that US citizens who are pro-White survival are amongst the most law-abiding people in the country today.

OF course it is only the agents and/or mentally disabled who get the media's attention.

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

Stupid, Brainless Provocateur Should Substantiate His Charges
(Apollonian, 25 Jun 10)

I'd like to challenge "Willem," above-quoted, to substantiate his hysterical and really idiotic charges above-quoted.

(a) Why exactly is Hal Turner a "despicable traitor"?--exactly what did Hal Turner do that was treasonous?

Hal Turner took money fm FBI to set up sting for Jews--as we're given to understand fm Family of Hal Turner. The only thing that's unfortunate is in associating w. FBI--which scares some people.

But why should people be scared if they're only into information and legitimate activity--like demonstrating in front of "Judeo-Christian" places speaking the truth which is so anti-semitic?

Hal Turner couldn't have been "informant"--as he didn't and couldn't know anything but what Jew provocateurs told him--this foregoing seems to escape so many stupid people who flock to White Reference.

(b) What exactly were "repeated attempts to get people in jeopardy with the law"?

Of course this above-quoted idiot, "Willem," who may himself be Jew agent, cannot answer these simple questions of mine--and it only then goes to show what's wrong w. "movement" and people in general, so incapable of thinking in simplest analytic manner.

Collaborating w. FBI is surely not advisable, these FBI scum, at least at top levels, involved in cover-up of 9-11, for example, both before and after the event, but temptation by means of large sums of money are hard for anyone to turn-down, esp. in these evermore depressed days, economically.

People need TO START THINKING. There really was NOTHING Hal Turner could possibly have "informed" about but for illegal activity and solicitation thereto--WHICH WOULD ONLY BE DONE BY JEWS and their agents among gentiles.

And it's truly quite possible FBI really was incensed about the Jews of SPLC, ADL, and even MOSSAD--this really makes quite a lot of sense the more one thinks about it.

CONCLUSION: So one begins to see how Jews and agents thereof really reveal themselves as they cuss and curse dear old Hal Turner, these idiots overlooking how it's Hal who's being persecuted for his CONSTITUTIONAL right to free expression of significant opinion regarding traitors and proper disposal thereof. Honest elections and death to the Fed. Apollonian
