We want to share a video that shows a use of force against Clinton on the outside recreation yard at Polunsky about 15 years ago. Please know that this video contains violence and may be shocking to watch. We post it per Clinton’s request.

What happened here is that Clinton did not want to go back to his cell. Six guards used extreme force to get him out of there. Clinton was not armed. He suffered multiple contusions, lacerations, and a broken nose. Know that all inmates on death row are in their cells for at least 22 hours a day. Outside recreation is between four high walls alone without human contact. Death row inmates can’t have contact visits or use the phone. They are in complete isolation. How exactly do we expect people to act when the prison system is designed like this?
