Read My New Essay: Should the U.S. Adopt a New Flag?

Date: June 16, 2020
Time: 3:08 p.m.
Location: Toledo Correctional Inst.

After seeing all of the statues of racist being destroyed throughout the U.S., and the Confederate flag finally getting taken down at NASCAR venues, it made me think about my essay that I wrote about the U.S. flag, “SHOULD THE U.S. ADOPT A NEW FLAG?” As I was looking over the table of contents for my website, to make sure I was citing the correct title of the essay, I noticed that the essay wasn’t listed on my website. I don’t know how this happened? But the essay is a must-read considering the current events and societal changes taking place.

The essay reads as follows. Please share it, and comment about it on social media. Thanking you in advance:

Attorney Kimberly Corral Won’t Talk

Date: Tuesday, June 9, 2020
Time: 11:35 a.m.
Location: Toledo Correctional Inst.

Just got off of the phone with the law office for Attorney Kimberly Corral, and I’m pissed by what her secretary just told me in relation to being helped with getting the word out about the old-law injustice documentary (INVISIBLE CHESS:The Jason Goudlock Story).

She told me that Attorney Corral wouldn’t help me UNLESS I paid her. … Now, I’m aware that I live in a capitalist society where nearly everything costs money. But, it just rubbed me the wrong way with the tone that she spoke to me, and the way that she used money as a barrier to impede my conversation. Why is justice always about damn money? I was recommended by someone to contact this particular office. But, the way that I was just slighted, if I was a millionaire I wouldn’t give them one cent!

Justice for Ohio prisoners is coming, however, because I refuse to not be heard! My (our) voice is going to become louder and louder! A second billboard about the film was just put up in Toledo, and there are going to be many more coming!

Well,this is it for now. I just wanted to share the reality of what’s it like as a prisoner trying to get people to simply speak to you about the pursuit of justice.

In the struggle,

WHISTLEBLOWER ALERT: Correction officers are now doing our daily COVID-19 tests! They have no certification to be nurses, and they aren’t even cleaning the medical equipment between each testing. The officer places a medical contraption on a prisoner’s finger, right after taking it off of the finger of another. I wouldn’t be surprised if nearly the entire prison population has the virus.

Justice for ALL!

The tragic police killing of George Floyd has awakened people all over the world as to how people of color are routinely brutalized by some faction of the U.S. criminal justice system. But what if the murder of George Floyd wasn’t captured on video? What if George Floyd wouldn’t have died and was sent to jail because of the lies written by the corrupt arresting cops? George Floyd would then be just like the countless number of other men and women sitting in jail or prison for some bullshit. He would be going through hell, sitting in a cell. He would be trying to prepare his self to fight for his freedom against a “crooked system,” — that is, a crooked system that is being allowed to exist.

The most corrupt and racist injustices are taking place, right now, behind closed doors (e.g. courtrooms, prisons, etc.) within the U.S. criminal justice system, and the vast majority of the U.S. population doesn’t care. Every year we hear the story of someone being freed from prison after 20 or 30 years, for a crime that the prosecutor and police knew the accused never committed. The wrongfully accused gets some money, appears on the morning news, but nothing never happens to the people that permitted the wrongful conviction. Shouldn’t all of those involved be charged with attempted murder? Shouldn’t they be held accountable? And, what about all of the other hundreds of criminal cases that these people participated in over the years? How many other lives did they destroy?

If society wants to fight for justice in the name of George Floyd, it needs to do it on all levels! Crooked cops, crooked judges, crooked correction officers, crooked prosecutors, crooked wardens, and crooked parole board members — like Marc Houk of the Ohio Parole Board — they must all be held accountable!

Right now a documentary is out that proves some members of the Ohio Parole Board are just as corrupt as the officers that killed George Floyd; just as corrupt as the police department that tried to cover up the killing of Ahmaud Arbery, yet, so far, no great demand for justice has been made by society. This has, unquestionably, further emboldened the perpetrators. Every time they issue an unwarranted and ridiculous sentence continuation to a prisoner, I’m sure they get some form of sick satisfaction from their perverse behavior.

But, for every action there’s a reaction in some fashion, because change is constant. Sometimes the results of change are for the better, and sometimes they’re for the worse. In this particular case, though, with the recently learned news that the aforementioned documentary (INVISIBLE CHESS: The Jason Goudlock Story) is being scheduled to appear nationally on the streaming service HULU, I tend to think that the pendulum of justice just might be starting to move in the right direction.

And with this being said, in closing, I ask that everyone who reads this post to spread the word about this development. Use your social media platform to, in the name of GEORGE FLOYD, fight, fight, fight … for JUSTICE!!!

Live, from incarceration nation,
Jason Goudlock

Crimes I Did NOT Commit

Date: Saturday, May 16, 2020
Time: 1:08 pm
Location: Toledo Correctional Inst.

I just got the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s “Opposition Brief” to my recently filed “Motion For Judicial Release,” and I’m angrier than I’ve ever been in my life! And, here’s why:

The prosecutor’s opposition motion states the specifics of two robberies allegedly committed by me–that is, the March 1993 robbing of a donut shop, and a Subway sandwich shop. Well, for starters, I NEVER ROBBED THEM! But, being super-ignorant to the ways of the criminal justice system, like the Central Park 5 did, I plead guilty to bullshit I didn’t do! After decades, though, I finally learned the specific details of the robberies, which allegedly occurred as a spree on the street of Broadway in Cleveland. The record states that I ripped a mailbox of money off of a wall in the donut shop, and then went to the Subway and forced people into a freezer and robbed the place with an accomplice….

THIS NEVER, EVER HAPPENED!!!

I hadn’t even been on the street where the robberies occurred for years! The 4th District Cleveland Police Department put these bullshit cases on me! In 2015, I wrote to the fake-ass Ohio Wrongful Conviction Project and asked for their help, but they only pretended to be helping me and dropped my case in 2018. They never even tried to get any physical evidence to make some type of comparisons! I didn’t do that bullshit and I’m willing to take any kind of test to prove it! They can get my DNA-whatever!

I’m disgusted with this racist-ass system, though! I wish people knew what it felt like to be in prison for some shit you didn’t do! Yeah, I did do all of the other crimes, although one of the robberies was embellished by the victim–but I didn’t rob no fucking donut shop, or no Subway!

Nearly 27 years later, though, I’m still being punished for this bullshit! And, the crazy thing is that at least one of the robberies, according to police records, was captured on video! To that I say, LET’S SEE THE VIDEO!

If it still exists, it’ll show everybody that I was set up, just like my documentary shows that I was framed by an actual Parole Board member!

I’m hoping to get a lawyer, soon, to try to prove my innocence–that is, in the event that I’m not granted Judicial Release. But if I am able to prove my innocence, I want every living person involved with this frame-up arrested, and I want to be paid MILLIONS OF DOLLARS by the city of Cleveland.

I don’t really have much more to say, but, if you really care about justice, then, please, AGGRESSIVELY circulate this post, as well as watch and circulate the INVISIBLE CHESS documentary!

Unfortunately, as demonstrated by the aggressive demand for justice by the mother of murdered Georgia citizen Ahmaud Arbery, you have to force people to administer justice. You would think that a video of law enforcement breaking the law would compel someone to do the right thing and address an incident of injustice, but when you’re a Black man in America, it’s just, “Oh,well…” Like, this bullshit is some kind of right-of-passage.

If I were a German Sheppard, though, my situation would be all over the news. I’m one-hundred percent done with biting my tongue!

Risk of COVID-19 at Toledo Correctional Institution in Ohio

Date: Friday, May 8, 2020
Time: 9:43 am
Location: Toledo Correctional Inst.

Out of nowhere, myself and thousands of other prisoners are now at-risk of contracting COVID-19! At the prison I’m in, we were all given masks. But in the area of sanitation, the prison isn’t taking it seriously. Our showers stay dirty, so much to the point that some prisoners wash up in their cells, rather than go to the shower. I’m uncertain of the exact number of how many people have contracted the virus here. But prisoners and staff have both tested positive.

A fellow prisoner that just moved into my cellblock, however, told me that there was an entire block full of prisoners that were being quarantined. He said that they were in the block that used to house kitchen workers, and that they weren’t being allowed to send out mail or use their phone tablets*. He also told me that the pandemic has caused great tension throughout the prison between prisoners and prison employees. He told me that officers are pissed-off at the DRC director, because they aren’t receiving supplemental “hazard pay.” He told me that the officers were suing the Director, and that, in turn, the Director was reassigning officers to job posts that they didn’t want to work. As a result, he said that the pissed officers were taking their frustrations out on prisoners.

I don’t know what the hell the Trump Administration is doing? He needs to stop being an egomaniac, and do what’s right for the country! Nobody knows what the virus is capable of doing. So, why is everyone in a rush to open the country back up? People should be demanding better leadership, and listening to experts in the medical field. Playing political games at a time like this is going to get people killed.

I want to give a shout out to the Ohio prisoner rights organization “EPIC”(ENSURING PAROLE FOR INCARCERATED CITIZENS), headed by Jeanna Kenny. They held a momentus protest outside of Marion Correctional Institution,last week, and are helping lead the fight for justice, for prisoners, by example! Join in and support them on your social media platform, www.EpicXTeam.org [(614) 207-2407], the same way that UNIVERSAL SUPPORT NETWORK founder Norman V. Whiteside did. If their is going to be gains made against Ohio’s criminal justice system, the various few Ohio organizations and activist need to put their egos to the side, and work together for the common good of prisoners! Because fighting and bickering isn’t helping prisoners. It’s hurting us, in fact. Those who are truly generals should be in the lead. So, put your egos aside, organize, and work together! You all have the Internet at your disposal, so, use it to “UNITE.” Use it to communicate and listen to the ideas and views of one another, otherwise understanding and unification will never be realized.

Last, if you are seeking justice for old-law prisoners who have to go before the Parole Board, then you should be supporting the “INVISIBLE CHESS:The Jason Goudlock Story” film. The film uses my story of injustice, as well as the story of Delano Wright’s, to expose the secretive and unjust dealings of Ohio’s Parole Board. But, the film is a film that was made for the purpose of attaining justice for all old-law offenders! The log line for the film reads:”TWENTY YEARS AGO, OHIO MADE FOUR THOUSAND PRISONERS THE UNDERCLASS OF THE UNDERCLASS.”

Four thousand! Not just me. FOUR…THOUSAND! So, let’s come together, and aggressively spread the word about the INVISIBLE CHESS film. Much deserved noise has been recently been made about the captured-on-video killing of Ahmaud Arbery, and the brazen months long decision by Georgia law enforcement to not arrest Arbery’s assailants. This type of brazenness is the same kind of brazenness that the Ohio Parole Board displays. The INVISIBLE CHESS film clearly shows the ruthlessness of the Ohio Parole Board, yet they haven’t been forced to be held accountable. I say, let’s make them be held accountable! Use social media to demand JUSTICE! We have to fight together, and stay aggressive! Simply complaining without taking any action will get us nowhere in Ohio.

I conclude this posting by saying “stay safe,and stay strong during these difficult times.”

In the struggle, live from incarceration nation…

Postscript: Please circulate the video and Press Release of the INVISIBLE CHESS billboard that was recently put up in Los Angeles. … I want to, also, give a shout out to the students of Prof. Paul Moke at Wilmington College, who are watching INVISIBLE CHESS in his Criminal Justice class. Thank you.

[*] Call the Toledo media, and the ACLU, and ask them to make an inquiry about the alleged mistreatment of quarantined COVID-19 prisoners. Ask for them to request interviews with various inmates and prison employees.

I haven’t posted anything in a while due to just being frustrated with my overall situation. I feel that the vast majority of people in the U.S have come to accept this racist system of mass-incarceration as something that is normal, and they expect me to accept it, also, which I never will.

Instead of speaking primarily about myself in this post, I want to use this forum today to speak about the inspirational life of a beautiful African-American women that I correspond with, named Ericka Young, who, as a 33-year-old unemployed woman, raises her two young nieces as her own daughters in Columbus, Ohio. Ericka, who’s originally from Canton, Ohio, has the medical condition “Sarcoidosis,” which is the same medical condition that the late legendary comedian Bernie Mac was afflicted with.

Ironically, like Ericka, Mac also raised the children of a sibling as his own, which became the backdrop storyline of Mac’s television show, “The Bernie Mac Show.” Unlike Mac, however, Ericka isn’t a financially well-off celebrity.

What she is, though, is a strong, strong woman, who is in need of steady employment-that is, so she can keep her head above water and raise her two nieces/daughters to the best of her ability. And, it must be noted that she is doing a remarkable job, because her nieces/daughters are both straight-A-students!

It is my hopes and prayers that someone reading this post–some kind of way–will assist Ericka with securing employment, and, perhaps, contribute to the further education of her two nieces/daughters.

If it were not for the nefarious ways of the Ohio Parole Board, I would now be present in Ericka’s life, helping her shoulder the load that no woman should have to carry on her own. Being that I’m not, however, by way of my social media platform, I’m advocating for her and asking that you please reach out to her by way of contacting any of the following:

EYoung3154@gmail.com
info@FreeJasonGoudlock.org

All inquiries about Ericka Young will be promptly responded to, and you will be put in direct contact with her. Thank you for your time, and please circulate this post on your social media platform, as well as to appropriate organizations, such as Bernie Mac Foundation, et cetera.

#Support4SuperMomEricka

Postscript: In closing, I just want to state that I now have a newly designed promotional billboard for my documentary, “INVISIBLE CHESS:The Jason Goudlock Story,” in Los Angeles!

Video footage and pictures of the billboard will soon be available on this
website and YouTube. I’m hoping that the billboard will generate support
for the film by influential social activists, such as Prof. Michelle Alexander, Colin Kaepernick, Jay Z, Kim Kardashian-West, Spike Lee, and LeBron
James.

It’s Not Enough!

LOCATION: Toledo Correctional

While there has been some positive developments regarding the promoting of my documentary (i.e. a Jan. 6, screening at Morton Library in New York; a Jan. 22, screening @ Bard College in New York; an upcoming airing of a radio interview on The Final Straw, etc.), I’m still pissed-off by the lack of real activism on behalf of Ohio old-law prisoners. With the exception of the “putting-in-work” prisoner rights nonprofit organization,”Fair Treatment Reform and Reentry,” ain’t nobody in Ohio doing anything for old-law prisoners, except wishing us good luck every six months when they decide to answer a letter or pick up the phone. I can’t take it anymore, and I’m done being quiet about all of these imposters who are clueless-by-choice to what we are going through in here. I’ve seen all kinds of bullshit newsletters that are asking for money on behalf of prisoners who aren’t being helped, but that’s it! I’ve tried to network with all of these frauds, only to learn that they don’t give a damn about us, for real.

The old-law injustice has been going on since July 1,1996. Then, after a documentary comes out, proving that DRC and the Board have been engaged in outright corrupt practices-nobody supports it! Public defender Timothy Young is in the film, but he hasn’t responded to none of my four voice messages that I’ve left since being flopped another FIVE YEARS in August! What type of bullshit is that? I asked this
man to post and share the film with his colleagues, but what did I get, though?

NOTHING!

But this is the same office that runs the fake-ass Wrongful Conviction Project, who pretended for 3 YEARS that they were working on my innocence claims, only to turn around and tell me that “If they were to overturn my claims, it wouldn’t matter because I still have to go to the Board on my other cases.” But, they knew this from the very first day I wrote them! And just because I have to go before the Board on other cases, this doesn’t excuse the fact that I’m still serving time for crimes I didn’t do!

And the Board is using these cases to help keep me over-incarcerated. But, the Wrongful Conviction Project still doctored their work logs and made it look like they were investigating my claims! Man, these frauds never even pursued the video evidence, which the records state captured the suspects who did the Broadway robberies. If you are a so-called innocence project, why wouldn’t you–in a span of three years–make the request of the video that your client says proves his innocence? This kind of disregard and pathetic lack of integrity is one of the main reasons why innocent people are sent to prison and death row.

But, in the eyes of the Wrongful Conviction Project, it’s cool that I’ve been in here almost 30 fucking years! It’s cool that I’m in here getting assaulted by lying-ass officers, which, in turn, creates more ammunition for the Board to use against me–that is, to help them further fortify their system of corruption and retaliate against me for exposing Board member MARC HOUK, who was CAUGHT FILING FALSE CRIMINAL CHARGES AGAINST ME IN 2006, WHEN HE WAS THE WARDEN AT THE OHIO STATE PENITENTIARY IN YOUNGSTOWN (Just watch the INVISIBLE CHESS documentary, and review Ohio State Highway Patrolmen David H. Simpson’s investigation report, #06-000028-0400)!

But, not to get too far off subject, tell me how can any so-called advocate of justice ignore a film that exposes injustice like this? THOUSANDS of prisoners are being tortured by the corrupt practices of Board members like MARC HOUK. If this isn’t worthy of being addressed by so-called advocates for justice, then they need to go ahead and find something else to pretend to be passionate about. Maybe then we will be able to attain some semblance of real justice, instead of this false hope that these justice-charlatans are selling.

I know I’m going to probably be attacked by Ohio’s “justice impostors,” but I don’t even care because they can’t make my situation any worse. Plus, they all know that I’M TELLING THE TRUTH! They have to look themselves in the mirror everyday and tell lies. They have to acknowledge that they are the FRAUDS who profit off of the modern-day enslavement of people of color.

I’m going to conclude for now. But,stay tuned,because justice and accountability is coming for the crooked individuals who are responsible for the injustice of Jason Goudlock and other old-law prisoners! I am not a slave,and ODRC AND THE OHIO PAROLE BOARD DO NOT OWN ME!

Due to the assistance of publicist LaTanya O’Kelly, my social media presence is gaining some traction.

Please aid this progress by sharing and posting INVISIBLE CHESS, and by asking Ohio media and elected officials to investigate the blatant continued corruption of the Board.

Some Positive Developments

Date: November 3, 2019
Time: 9:37 am
Location: Toledo Korrectional Institution

After recently getting another five-year flop, in August, at the corrupt parole board, I have a few positive developments to share with you, as well as another bizarre and unbelievable one.

On November 1, 2019, after trying for years to make this happen, with the help of my brother, I was able to put up a digital billboard in Atlanta, GA (on the streets of 8th and Peachtree) and one in Ohio (On State Highway 35, west-bound, near Dayton, OH). They display my website and the name of my documentary!

The erecting of my billboards is perfect timing, that is, considering that legislation on behalf of old-law prisoners has been recently introduced to Ohio legislators by Beverly Seymour and James Kronenberger of the prisoner rights organization Fair Treatment Reform and Reentry.

Three screenings for the documentary have been scheduled in January along with an interview for the Final Straw radio show in North Carolina, which was made possible by old-law political prisoner David Easley (Toledo, OH #306-400).

Now, as for the bizarre story … Last week, I was called out to speak to two Ohio Highway Patrolmen about an incident in which they said they received information that I was trying to put out a hit on the parole board! My first reaction to this was laughter, because someone is clearly trying to set me up. At the time, I couldn’t think of anyone who would try to set me up like this. But, after I went back to my cell and gave it some though, I think it’s an officer that I had an argument with that’s responsible for the attempted framing? If they’re smart, they better stop while they’re ahead, that is, unless they want to end up getting exposed in a documentary.

I assure you, I will not accept anyone setting me up again!

I know I broke the law in 1993, but what the parole board is doing to me is crazy. They need to let their grudge go and let me get on with my life. I have become bitter over the years with what they’ve done to me. I still want to get out and do everything that I can to steer at-risk youths away from the penitentiary because being incarcerated is a constant form of torture that erodes the spirit of prisoners.

Well, this is all for this posting. Please support the aforementioned introduced legislation for old-law prisoners. If anyone reading this is good at promoting social media material, please get in contact with me so I can get my social media cranked all the way up.

Doing My Best to Maintain My Sanity

Date: November 3, 2019
Time: 9:37 am
Location: Toledo Korrectional Institution

I’m doing my best to maintain my sanity in the midst of being held captive by the Ohio Parole Board. They just issued a second update of their so-called “parole board transformation reforms” (Sept. 13; www.drc.ohio.gov), which mentioned absolutely nothing about rectifying the sentencing disparity between old-law and new-law prisoners, which they said in their June 13, 2019 update that they were going to be addressing!

Nevertheless, nothing in any of the two updates was applied to me at my August 30 hearing. But, see, this is how things operate behind closed doors. They make things appear one way to the public, but in actuality, they’re doing something else. They probably have applied some of the reforms to certain prisoners.

This is how they circumvent the agendas that they appear to be carrying out on the surface. They show you a few positive things on the surface, but underneath it you have what’s being done to me still going on. If the Parole Board was truly trying to rectify the old-law disparity, I would be on my way to Cleveland and not doing another five-year flop.

A CALL TO ACTION: Send emails to Ohio senators, newspapers, TV stations, radio stations, magazine editors, college student unions, blog websites, the ACLU, churches, mosques, synagogues, fraternities, sororities, attorneys, activist-athletes, etc… and ask them to watch and share my documentary, Invisible Chess: The Jason Goudlock Story. Demand that I be released by way of posting on their social media platforms and signing my change.org petition.

Ohio’s criminal justice system, as well as countless others across the U.S., is corrupt and ultra-racist. They must be pot on blast!

It’s about to be 2020 and slavery — by another name — is thriving in the USA. If the Ohio Parole Board did to Chelsea Clinton or Rush Limbaugh what they’re doing to me, everybody on the Board would get fired! You can best believe that Chelsea and Rush would be getting out of prison, for sure.

#ThisIsWhyTheyKneelForTheAnthem

Postscript:

Mentally ill inmates are being intentionally neglected by Toledo’s mental health department. Inmate Keith Gunnell (#613-236), on September 19, on third and first shift, cut himself with a razor seven or eight separate times while he was on suicide watch under “close supervision.” It wasn’t until he received 27 stitches for cutting his stomach open that he was placed on “constant supervision.” All of this was recorded on video.

On August 9, inmate Savon Davis (#577-547) went to an outside hospital for cutting his neck open.

On August 15, he was taken off of suicide watch despite never being interviewed by mental health. He, then, cut his neck again the same day and was placed back on watch.

On July 8, 2nd shift, CO Aumiller was fired for throwing a razor blade in the stripout cage of inmate Demarco Wright (#654-361). He pepper-sprayed Wright under the false pretense that the inmate was “trying to kill himself.”

All of the incidents are documented and the videos and reports can be obtained, as a matter of law, by way of making a Public Record Request to Toledo’s warden assistant 2, Sonrisa Sehlmeyer. Send requests to DRC.ToCI@odrc.state.oh.us and contact Ohio media, asking them to do the same.
