#SAYHISNAME #DEMETRIUSWHITE JOIN US AS WE STAND UP AGAINST STATE LAW ENFORCEMENT WHO ARE ENCOURAGING HIS DEMISE—if you do not know Demetrius personally- He is 24, years old, he’s been in the state correctional facility systems since the age of 12 years old. He most recently was transferred to PA State Prison-SCI GREENE- where he sadly has tried ending his life multiple times—he is diagnosed with 3 mental health diagnosis which SHOULD COVER HIM UNDER THE MENTAL HEALTH PROTECTIVE SERVICES ACT, but that right is being taken from him by SCI Greene. The state facility staff recently discontinued all psychiatric medications- without his consent or refusal— please read an email from the prison society for updated information—

I had some calls with Regina White, mother of inmate Demetrius White NJ2215. I will be following up in the future to you as well. I wanted to urgently notify you of the current incident because the weekend is here and staff tends to be short.

As the prison has probably noted White has severe mental health issues. On Sunday, February 28th, Mr White was rushed to the hospital for swallowing 4 batteries. He was escorted by Lt Korte and a CO Medvak. (Names may be misspelled as they were sounded through conversations). While there, it was alleged that both CO’s had a conversation with the inmate about trying harder at “killing himself.” They encouraged him to swallow more lethal items. Allegedly, at the hospital, White actually grabbed a piece of wire and “balled it up” and swallowed while both CO’s watched.

Also, in violation of medical rights, at Washington Hospital, Lt Korte, allegedly told the nursing staff not to draw White’s blood. Since the only two folks that can make a medical decision for White is himself and mother, this also violates state medical decision making law.

I am getting this email to you before my investigation is completed because of the danger that the CO’s are placing inmate White. They are exploiting his mental heath condition and the consequences could be tragic. I understand that these are allegations and a “he said, he said” however, my concern is indifference being real.

Thanks—
