Warden accused of running ‘rape club’ at prison where Lori Loughlin, Felicity Huffman served time

A male warden is on trial for allegedly running a “rape club” at the California women’s prison where Lori Loughlin, Felicity Huffman and Allison Mack all have served time.

In what has been called a shocking abuse of power, Ray J. Garcia, 55, was the top official at the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin when the FBI allegedly caught him with naked pictures of inmates in their cells on his government-issued phone in 2021.

At the opening of his trial on seven counts of sexual abuse conduct involving three female inmates, the court heard how the alleged incidents by Garcia and his staff were so open that inmates referred to it as “rape club.”

Four other prison officials have also been charged with sexual abuse, two of whom have already pleaded guilty.

An inmate named Melissa, whose last name was withheld, testified that Garcia told her repeatedly he “wanted to f—k” her and showed her naked pictures of himself “all the time,” according to reports.

Prosecutors said Garcia digitally penetrated Melissa and forced her to touch his penis between 2019 and 2021. The incidents took place in the prison bathroom and cell, where Garcia allegedly would insert “half-eaten, sucked-on” candy canes into her vagina.

California Releases Thousands of Convicted Pedophiles Within a Year of Conviction

California has released thousands of convicted pedophiles after spending only a few months in prison.

Such pedophiles have been convicted of “a range of horrific acts, including raping kids under 14,” according to the study investigation conducted by the U.K. Daily Mail.

More than 7,000 persons convicted of “lewd or lascivious acts with a child under 14 years of age” have been released in the same year they were convicted. Convicts who committed even more heinous crimes, such as sodomy and rape of children, also served short sentences.

“Thousands of child victims are being denied justice and George Gascón and his group of radical prosecutors can [sic] care less,” Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney Jonathan Hatami, who serves in the Complex Child Abuse Unit and whose outspokenness about DA Gascón contributed to a recall effort, told the Daily Mail.

Some short sentences include 365 pedophiles convicted of continuous sexual abuse of a child — all of whom spent fewer than 12 months in prison. Thirty-nine cases were convictions for sodomy with a child under the age of 16, while there were three cases of kidnapping a child under the age of 14 “with intent to commit lewd or lascivious acts.”

Former Los Angeles sex crimes prosecutor Samuel Dordulian told the outlet that the statistic was “frightening for society,” adding that “statistics clearly show that pedophiles don’t get reformed. They’re going to come out and they’re going to commit again.”

According to the data from the Megan’s Law database, one pedophile convicted of “continuous sexual abuse of a child” spent only two days in a county jail before being released on a five-year probation.

As the Daily Mail points out, he now lives one block from a daycare and three blocks from an elementary school.

According to further analysis of the data, of the 54,986 sex offenders in the database, 76 percent are pedophiles. On average, each pedophile served just two years and ten months in prison.

Dordulian explained that California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) is in part responsible for such lenient sentencing and treatment, as he attempts to artificially reduce the state’s prison population.

Four States Voted to End Slavery — But Not Louisiana. Here’s Why.

Voters in Vermont, Tennessee, Oregon and Alabama amended their state constitutions to abolish slavery and indentured servitude this week — but a similar initiative failed in Louisiana, garnering embarrassing headlines for a former slave state that remains infamous for modern mass incarceration and forced prison labor.

Louisiana voters rejected an amendment to the state constitution aimed at outlawing slavery and involuntary servitude on Tuesday, underscoring the challenges faced by a growing movement to abolish slave wages and coerced labor inside prisons nationwide. Activists campaigning to end prison slavery say the vote was mired in confusion and misinformation after Rep. Edmond Jordan, a Black Democrat and sponsor of the amendment in the state legislature, advised voters to reject its compromise language and send it back to the drawing board.

However, Amendment 7’s passage would have been at least a symbolic victory for formerly and currently incarcerated organizers in a state known for the Louisiana State Penitentiary, home to the notorious Angola prison farm located on a former antebellum plantation. Activists cite Angola as a well-known example of “modern-day slavery,” although coerced and extremely low-paid prison labor is pervasive far beyond rural Louisiana.

“We knew the amendment didn’t go far enough, but we need to start somewhere,” said Morgan Shannon, director of partnerships at the Power Coalition for Equity and Justice, in an interview. The social justice group is one of several that campaigned in support of the amendment.

Justice Department Failed to Report Nearly 1,000 Deaths in State and Local Prisons: Senate Committee

A probe by the Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations and the Government Accountability Office has found that the Department of Justice (DOJ) is failing to adequately and efficiently collect data about deaths in state prisons and local jails and that the true number of deaths is likely much higher.

The report (pdf), a culmination of a 10-month investigation, focused on whether the DOJ has complied with the Death in Custody Reporting Act (DCRA) of 2013.

That act requires that state and federal law enforcement report to the U.S. Attorney General any deaths of individuals that occur while the individuals are detained, under arrest, in the process of being arrested, en route to prison, or incarcerated at any correctional facility, including contract facilities.

The Attorney General must then study the information and report on ways in which it can be used to reduce the number of such deaths. Under DCRA, states that fail to submit the necessary data may be subject to penalties.

Approximately 1.5 million people are incarcerated in state and local correctional facilities throughout the United States, according to the Government Accountability Office.

The Senate report alleges that the DOJ is “failing to effectively implement” DCRA and that the “DOJ’s failed implementation” of the law “undermined the effective, comprehensive, and accurate collection of custodial death data.”

A Child Rapist Who Tortured and Murdered a Special Needs Person is Advising Lawmakers and Academics on Transgender Inmate Rights

A violent child sex predator who raped two 9-year-old girls is giving advice to academics and lawmakers on the topic of transgender inmate rights.

Patricia Elaine Trimble, who was born a male, is a regulator contributor for the Prison Journalism Project (PJP), a non-profit that gives a writing platform to criminals. Trimble noted in the article that “she” prepared a presentation for Missouri University after being contacted by a criminology professor at the school.

“It is not unusual for me to be asked to write an article or story about things in my wheelhouse. I am, after all, a transgender woman, feminist, activist and advocate for the incarcerated LGBTQ+ community,” Trimble wrote.

Trimble’s paper was featured by the LGBTQ Policy Journal at Harvard University in 2019. VICE also featured Trimble in a sympathetic puff piece about transgender criminals locked behind bars. However, the article did not mention why Trimble was incarcerated.

Trimble was convicted in 1978 of viciously raping two 9-year-old girls. Trimble was convicted of using a rope to tie up the two girls after grooming them and gaining their trust. He raped them orally and vaginally in the woods while they were bound.

While incarcerated waiting a verdict on the child rape case, Trimble raped and murdered a developmentally-disabled inmate who he turned into his “slave” before ending his life.

A court document said Trimble “forced the victim to have both oral and anal intercourse with him, compelled him to wear a “bra” around the jail for the entertainment of the other inmates, and forced him at one point to display to the other inmates a rag that had been stuffed into his anus.”

After prostituting the victim out to other inmates and torturing him with burnt shampoo bottles, Trimble strangled him to death with towels. Trimble staged the scene, Jeffrey Epstein-style, in order to make it look like a suicide. Trimble’s plan did not convince authorities, and Trimble was convicted of murder and sentenced to death in 1980. Trimble’s death sentence was commuted in 1985 and reduced to a sentence of life in prison.

Now, thanks to the LGBT agenda, Trimble is considered a hero for equality and is influencing media figures and academics nationwide. Trimble wrote a book, Finding Purpose: One Transgender Woman’s Journey, in which Trimble is described as a “feminist, activist, and advocate for the incarcerated LGBTQ+ community.”

Child rapist and murderer lauded as ‘feminist’ and ‘advocate’ for LGBTQ Rights

Patricia Elaine Trimble, a biological male who raped two 9-year-old girls and who murdered a developmentally disabled cell mate while incarcerated has been recently celebrated in left-wing media as “a transgender woman, feminist, and activist.” Trimble has been spending their time in prison advocating for the rights of “the incarcerated LGBTQ+ community.”

Trimble is a regular contributor to the The Prison Journalism Project, a non-profit organization that provides a platform for prison inmates. In 2019, Trimble published an academic paper in the Harvard Kennedy School’s Student Publication LGBTQ Policy Journal about the “systemic discrimination” against the LGBTQ community, of which Trimble only recently became a member. Trimble, 59, decided to transition to a woman in their mid-fifties after learning about transgender identity through an LGBTQ organization that Trimble reached out to following an alleged assault.

Vice published a rosy portrait of Trimble in 2019 that focused on the inmate’s transgender journey, but never mentioned the double child rape convictions and only glossed over the murder charge. Little is known about Trimble’s crimes, who after assuming a new name and identity, has been able to evade public disclosure.

According to the 1983 Missouri Court of Appeals case State v. Trimble654 S.W.2d 245, Trimble was convicted on two counts of kidnapping, four counts of sodomy, one count of rape and one count of sexual abuse in the first degree. The case document details how Trimble lured two nine-year-old girls into a marshy, wooded area, where he orally and vaginally raped them. Trimble, then aged 20, gained the girls’ trust by playing with them, then tied them up with a rope and transported them in his car to another location, where the brutal rapes took place.

In a blurb for Trimble’s 2021 book, Finding Purpose: One Transgender Woman’s Journey, Trimble claims to be innocent of the rape charges, “Although Ms. Trimble was charged, convicted and sentenced to over a hundred years for a crime she did not commit, she is also serving a life sentence for a murder she committed in 1979.”

In addition to the rape of two small girls, in 1979 Trimble raped, tortured, and murdered his prison cellmate, a developmentally disabled man named Jerry James Everett. The court described Trimble’s treatment of Everett as routine “physical and sexual humiliation,” saying that Trimble made a “slave” out of him. The document states that Everett was in jail awaiting trial for stealing a van, and that he was “slow, and may never have fully comprehended what was happening to him.”

Biden Admin Spends $1.5 Million on ‘Transgender Programming’ for Inmates

The left is becoming more aggressive at pushing their transgender agenda on society, and it doesn’t seem like they’re going to stop forcing their woke narrative  any time soon. 

In fact, prisoners will now have luxurious options when it comes to “transitioning,” and all paid for by the American people, of course. 

The Department of Justice (DOJ) entered a $1.5 million contract with a private company to develop a “transgender programming curriculum” to be used in prisons across the U.S. 

According to a statement to the Epoch Times from the office of public affairs for the department’s Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP), the curriculum will teach “techniques to seek support for mental health concerns and skills to advocate for physical, emotional, and sexual health and safety.” 

The program will help incarcerated inmates how to “manage identity concerns during incarceration” and advocate for their “sexual health and safety.” 

The contract also asks the firm to develop a program to help transgender inmates access hormone treatment after they are released.

Less than one percent, or 1,114 inmates of the 158,033 federal inmates under the BOP’s charge, identify as transgender, meaning the Biden administration spent roughly $1,250 on each transgender inmate.
