Melvin Brown started this petition to Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and

My name is Sundra Keys.  My family and I are starting this petition because my son, Tyler Keys, along with other inmates, are being physically abused, harassed, and threatened at Gouverneur Correctional Facility by at least six (6) correctional officers. 

Tyler has two young boys and a host of family and friends who are extremely concerned for his safety while in this correctional facility.  The last straw was when my son called me and said "Ma, wake up! I need your help! You gotta help me Ma!" Multiple officers jumped Tyler in the gym area while at rec. After they beat him in the rec, they took Tyler into the Sergeant's office, beat him in front of the Sergeant. They threatened Tyler's life if he told anyone and told Tyler that they knew how to write up paperwork to cover the assault.

On June 1, 2020, my son wrote these words to me via email:

"Hey ma, when they came in here looking for me they went to my cube and someone (another inmate) heard them say "Where's Keys? he needs to come to the infirmary.. he needs glasses."  The infirmary is where they beat on people and get away with it.  Broadcast everything ma, I'm done, I am tired, something has to change.  Where is my justice?  Where are my rights!"

 My son no longer wants to suffer in silence.  Even though his life is in danger, with me shedding light on the brutality within Gouverneur Correctional Facility, his greatest fear is being another #hashtag.

Please stand with us by signing this petition to bring justice within the Gouverneur Correctional Facility.  The officers and Sergeants need to be held accountable for their actions.
