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.

Another FIVE-YEAR Flop!

Date: September 3, 2019
Time: Time for Justice
Location: Toledo Correctional Inst.

Once again, the corrupt Ohio Parole Board has judicially lynched me by giving me a second consecutive FIVE-YEAR flop! Yes, after having already served almost 26 years for robbery and felonious assault, the sick-in-the-head Board gave me five more year. And, what’s crazy is that they did this in spite of there being a documentary out proving that they’ve engaged in corrupt practices against me. They really think that they’re above the law, that they can’t be humbled, though. But I promise you this: nothing that they’ve done is getting swept under the rug! If its up to me, the entire world is going to see what they do to people in the heartland of the state of Ohio.

The same corrupt Board that now wants me to serve 31 years for robbery and felonious assault — that is, just to be considered for release — they’ve paroled prisoners in the past who’ve served less than 20 years for killing someone during the infamous 1993 Lucasville prison uprising (Look in The Plain Dealer Cleveland, OH archives for “Lucasville killer testified on riot; now he walks” by John Caniglia, Sept 4. 2006)! They’ve paroled prisoners who’ve escaped and never taken responsibility for their crimes. And, they’ve paroled prisoners who’ve been to prison multiple times, yet, they won’t let me go because I’m standing up for myself! I swear, the next time that his country points a finger at somebody for a human rights violation, I hope that the accused points a finger right back at this country’s modern-day system of slavery.

Ohio’s corrupt Parole Board is going to regret the corruption that they’ve engaged in against me, and that’s because I’m going to expose them in a way that they’ve never imagined! The Board doesn’t own me, and they’re about to be made aware of this fact. Fuck the bullshit 13th amendment, talking about there shall be no slavery in this country … except for the punishment of a crime. It’s these kinds of words that should make everybody in this country refuse to stand for the signing of the national anthem, which, by the way, is another historical document that’s outright racist (Read the third stanza of the anthem).

In memory of Martin Luther King Jr. and the courageous striking Memphis sanitation workers that he died standing up for, I conclude this post with these words for Ohio’s merciless Parole Board: I AM A MAN!!!

Justice for Magwood!

Date: June 30, 2019
Time: 9:34am
Location: Toledo Correctional Inst., Segregation Unit

If you’re reading this, then you probably already know that my documentary was recently released here on the website. Now you will be able to get a good look at the type of corruption and prisoner abuse that goes on behind closed doors. After you do, share your comments about the film on your social media platform and contact somebody in Ohio about the injustice. Write an elected official, the media, the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, me, etc… Do something, please! You can make a donation to my crowdfunding campaign if you want. Anything will be helpful and appreciated!

I want to turn your attention to a prisoner in the prison I’m at named Shane Magwood (#692-140). On June 16, 2019, while he was on suicide watch, he was sprayed with an entire can of mace and then taken to a walk-in shower and brutally beaten while handcuffed by two Segregation Unit officers. I witnessed the beating and Magwood was beaten right in front of numerous officers, whom all watched and did nothing. Magwood’s jaw was left swollen and his lip was busted. He was taken to another suicide watch cell in the medical unit and kept there overnight, but was denied medical attention. The next day, he was placed back in his original suicide watch cell in D3-East-6, which was still covered with mace. He was then, against his wishes, taken off of suicide watch despite still being suicidal.

All of the officers involved in the incident with inmate Magwood were placed under investigation. At the time of this writing, they’re still under investigation. With this being said, I want to ask if you will help inmate Magwood with trying to secure a civil attorney to represent him pro bono. An attorney in the Toledo, OH area would be preferred so they can easily travel to meet with Mr. Magwood. Considering the circumstances, any attorney will do. Below is vital information for you to pass on to the attorney:

Date of Incident: June 16, 2019
Inmate Name: Shane Magwood #692-140
Location: Toledo Correctional Institution, Seg Unit D3-East-6
Time: Approx 4:20 – 4:35pm
Additional Info: Multiple officers were relieved of their duty and sent home under investigation.
Public Requests for video should be made to:
Sonrisa Sehlmeyer, Correction Warden’s Assistant #2 at drctoci@odrc.state.oh.us.

While I’m hoping that a lawyer will make the public records request, I want to point out that you can make the request too! So, don’t hesitate to demand to see this video or any other video in the future. Post them on social media and send them to mainstream and alternative media outlets. The only way that these Klan-like beatings are going to be stopped is if we stop them — that is, by exposing all who are responsible! Reach out to the media, journalism classes, mass communication classes, etc… Just get the word out about what’s going on.

I want to conclude by asking that you please support and, if possible, attend the August 3, 2019 Criminal Justice Forum in Columbus, Ohio. It’s hosted by Fair Treatment Reform and Reentry. For more info about the event, contact them at:

A Disturbing Update and The Tragedy of Heather D. Turfley

Date: June 9, 2019
Time: Around 5:00pm
Location: A DRC Torture Camp in Toledo, OH

Since my last blog post, my life has consisted of a series of roller coaster-like highs and lows. About the only good news I have to repeat is that my documentary was screened March 11, at Denison University and was reported on by National Public Radio affiliate WOSU 89.7 FM. Tiffany Smith of the Ohio Justice and Policy Center is also helping me now. The publicity from my documentary, however, has led to some looking-for-trouble inmates labeling me as a “hideout” prisoner, which is a term used to describe inmates who refuse to be housed in general population. As a result of this, in the interest of not wanting to get into any serious trouble, on May 12, I refused to Lock in general population and voluntarily went to the hole.

Two weeks after I went to the hole, on May 30th, I kicked on my cell door in an attempt to get somebody to contact the mailroom about some stamps that I was waiting to receive. Lt. Jordon Reichenbaugh eventually came to my cell (D3-East-5) and began arguing with me about kicking on the door. I tried to explain my issue to him, and he went on to tell me he was “going to wipe his ass with my stamps,” and then he exited the cellblock. A few moments later, he returned back to my cell with two or three officers and told me to get handcuffed.

I complied with the directive and was then escorted out of my cellblock to a holding cage in a secluded area, which was out of view of the D3/4 cellblock corridor surveillance cameras. Lt. Reichenbaugh then told me that I was being placed on suicide watch and left the area. I responded by yelling “I’m not suicidal! I’m not suicidal!” Seconds later, the miscreant authority abusing lieutenant returned back with a second officer and told me that if I refused to go on suicide watch, he was going to summon the security response extraction team to force me on watch.

Being that I never said a word about being suicidal, I told the lieutenant to do whatever he wanted to do. The officer with the lieutenant then left the area. A few moments later, Lt. Reichenbaugh jumped back in a quick motion, just enough to be captured by the surveillance camera, and began yelling that I’d spat on him, which was an outright lie! Quickly, upon realizing that I was in the midst of being set up, I turned away from the exit where the lieutenant had just staged being spit at, knowing that I was about to be sprayed with an unknown chemical agent. Sure enough, a split-second later, I was sprayed with a large amount of the chemical. I thought that it was the pig-lieutenant that had sprayed me. I later found out, though, that it was an officer with the last name Logan.

After getting set up and assaulted, I was then forced on suicide watch and made to spend the night in a freezing cold cell, which was one of the dirtiest that I ever been in. The following day, after being taken off of watch, I notified my supporters and had them call the Ohio Highway Patrol and the media to tell them what happened to me.

Instead of the Highway Patrol investigating the incident with me as the victim, they came and read me my Miranda rights. I don’t know what’s going to happen now, though. And that’s because I have absolutely zero faith in the Ohio criminal justice system. I don’t even know why I even had anybody contact them, honestly. All that ever happens is a bunch of people in authority turning their heads to injustice. It’s cool for me to suffer, let them tell it.

If I was a Labrador Retriever or a German Shepherd and got treated the way I’m being treated, it would be millions of people raising hell across the U.S. When I got assaulted and framed by six Mansfield Correctional Institution officers in 2013, nobody said a word. Their silence is the reason why I’m a modern day slave. Maybe people should just start spraying dogs in the face with chemical agents, and posting videos of it. Maybe then people will start to think about prisoners that are being tortured like me (Hey PETA, chill … I really don’t mean this.).

All of the above is nothing compared to the tragic news that I recently learned about my late friend Heather Dawn Turfley, an author, filmmaker, and entrepreneur, whom I met in 2005 and helped me put together my early drafts for my published novel, Brother of the Struggle. For a reason that I’m really unclear about, I lost contact with Heather in 2008. Several years later, however, I sought to get in contact with her to see if she was willing to be interviewed for my then-forthcoming documentary. I could not find her.

Last month, I asked my brother to see if he could locate her. He did an extensive search and forwarded me the tragic news that she had allegedly committed suicide in 2014 inside a jail in the Virgin Islands. As soon as I got the news that she had passed away, I broke down and cried like a baby.

If Heather did, in fact, commit suicide as reported, I can only wonder what led to her tragedy. The media reported that she had a history of a diagnosed mental illness, but I am skeptical of news reports that involve the deaths and assaults of prisoners. Clearly, Heather was dealing with some problems in her life. I just can’t go with the media’s story alone because the person described in the story is not the person I knew. Heather was super-intelligent, thoughtful, and caring. She was accomplished! She wrote two books, “Children of the State” and “What The #!&?: A Straight Up Guide to Life, Love, and Money,” and she self-published them under her pseudonym Nicia Aiyetoro. In addition to this, she co-owned a photography business, filmed short movies, taught film classes to at-risk youths, and was also a public speaker. She accomplished all of this after being homeless.

At the time of writing, I am attempting to get in contact with Heather’s relatives so I can learn more about her life and what led to her death. If I can ever be granted my freedom and if I survive being tormented by Ohio’s criminal (in)justice system, I want to do something to honor her and tell her story. She truly was a wonderful person and I will never, ever forget her.

My future girlfriend or wife is going to be jealous of the adorable little girl and woman in the pictures below…

Heather Dawn ‘Nicia’ Turfley, In Loving Memory

Rest in Peace
1976 – 2014

IMPORTANT UPDATE!

Before I could mail the above posting out for publication on the website, I found out that I’m being transferred back to the infamous Southern Ohio Correctional Facility (SOCF). This is not good news for me. I just came from SOCF in early 2018 where I had to wait months to be given my legal property and addresses. Furthermore, I’m going to be in a housing area that doesn’t allow prisoners to access their JPay accounts. This is going to be a major inconvenience to me. Major!

In addition to being cut off from communicating with the world, I’m being sent to the prison that I spoke out against in my documentary, in defense of the Lucasville Five prisoners.

Being that my life is about to be put in great, great danger — way more danger than it is now — I just want to say on my behalf that if I die, I don’t want a funeral and that I DID NOT ROB any Subway sandwich shop or doughnut shop in 1993! There is a video somewhere that proves this; but, I guess my life is not worthy enough of any of these paper tiger activist and fake wrongful conviction projects to investigate my claim. 26-fucking-years and nobody gives a fuck!

If I didn’t have these fake robberies on my record, I’d be out of prison. None of this matters, though. Maybe if I was somebody that got caught in the Middle East, plotting to blow up American buildings and planes, et cetera — maybe then I’d be getting out of prison! Oh, better yet, maybe I should just claim to be a Catholic priest, so I can just avoid the criminal (in)justice system and just be excommunicated! If I change my website to “FreeFatherGoudlock.org,” I might even get to see LeBron play!

But, then again, I don’t think my Black Life Matters to him, because he never responded to anything about my injustice, and it was publicized all over the world, with his name attached to the headlines! I guess he’s too busy trying to be like Mike. I just hope, though, that he doesn’t be like him and start investing into prisons (#DontBeLikeMike)! I wish Malcolm X was alive to call out Sellout Mike. I mean, because, Nike, Hanes, or McDonald’s surely won’t.

Well, I’m going to conclude on that note. If anybody cares about me or true justice, support my documentary and donate to my crowdfunding campaign. Plus, send me a message!

Invisible Chess Not Invisible Life

Date: Friday, March 15, 2019
Time: 4:49pm EST
Location: Toledo Correctional Institution

I want to begin this post by saying “thank you” to everyone who attended and supported the recent Denison University screening of my documentary INVISIBLE CHESS: The Jason Goudlock Story. I also want to extend a special thank you to National Public Radio (NPR) for interviewing the film’s producer, William Nichols. And I have to say thank you to former Ohio Senator Shirley Smith and the nonprofit organization Fair Treatment Reform for recently speaking out against the unjust practices of the Ohio Parole Board.

Finally, the once-suppressed injustice that I’ve been on the receiving end of is being exposed for all to see! Hopefully, this exposure will lead to many old-law prisoners, as well as me, being released.

I have to admit I was slightly disappointed that nobody in LeBron James’ camp supported my documentary. I reached out to him through his business partner Maverick Carter, but I didn’t hear back from anyone. Considering all of the publicity that was generated from the 2014 comment I made about him to the Parole Board, I was confident he would support the film some kind of way. I mean INVISIBLE CHESS is about the kind of injustice he’s against. But it’s still a possibility he could get involved.

I’m also hoping that the WNBA’s Brittney Griner reverses course on her 2014 comment that she made to TMZ Sports about me. (Maybe we can email TMZ Sports and ask them and “Van” to review INVISIBLE CHESS, and then re-interview Brittney Griner.)

Ultimately, the Denison screening has uplifted my spirit tremendously. I battle with deep depression, but the screening has shone some much needed light on me. Besides my freedom, the only thing I need in my life is a woman’s companionship. I have been alone essentially my entire time in prison. And the couple of times I thought I saw myself finally meeting someone perfect for me turned out to be mirages. Nevertheless, I remain optimistic that the great wait is coming to an end.

In conclusion,I just want to say, once again, thank you to all who supported INVISIBLE CHESS, and please, please spread the word about the documentary on your social media platforms. Tell local and national media about the film, and ask them to contact the film’s producer William Nichols and director Samuel H. Crow to review it. (See InvisibleChess.com) Also, you can show your support by purchasing a “FREE JG” T-Shirt and posting a picture of it with your social media posts.

Postscript: On April 26, 2019, at 11:00 p.m.,at 1200 Ontario Street, Cleveland, Ohio, a protest against the Ohio Parole Board will be held. Please show your support by attending this demonstration and/or supporting it on your social media platforms.

Starting My Twenty-Sixth Consecutive Year

Date: Sunday, December 16, 2018
Time: 11:35am
Location: Toledo Correctional Institution

The documentary about my situation of injustice, Invisible Chess: The Jason Goudlock Story, recently made its debut at the Greater Cleveland Urban Film Festival! I’ve been busy trying to assist with promoting the film. I’m writing letters to various organizations and sending them flyers about the film. The film producers are getting ready to do a huge press release for the film, plus are contacting colleges to set up screenings of the film.

Besides this, though, I’ve been writing and recording some music for the Internet. Some of it might be added to the official soundtrack for Invisible Chess. Hopefully, the music will generate the support of the Hip-Hop community. In addition to this, I’ve also begun putting together a format of audio commentary material, which will consist of me speaking about various topics related to the U.S. criminal justice system.

Aside from engaging in my fight for my freedom, I’ve just been doing my best to navigate around the daily bullshit that goes on inside the concrete jungle. The gang culture is everywhere, and most prisoners — who are mainly all new-law prisoners — are all in gangs and band together for strength, which makes doing time for minority, non-gang prisoners a little stressful, to say the least. Since I’m not in a gang, basically, I hav eto put up with guys running their mouth as if they can fight like Floyd Mayweather.

I also have to put up with the bullshit in the interest of trying to get paroled. But, I definitely want to get out of prison, so… I have to keep playing the “invisible chess” that I’m being forced to play. I just hope that somebody on the Parole Board will have some understanding about what old-law prioners are being forced to deal with. I don’t want to have to end up spending the rest of my life in prison for defending myself.

I just started my twenty-sixth consecutive year in prison (from the time of my arrest, Nov. 1993), and I assure you, I don’t want to be a criminal. Me sitting in a prison cell is doing nothing but making me bitter.

I’m almost to the point where I’m ready to just tell the State of Ohio to execute me, because I’m being tortured. I mean, I didn’t even commit two of the robberies that I’m in prison for! I can prove it because there is a video of the robberies, according to police records. But, as I’ve learned over the years, the truth or justice doesn’t mean anything once your in the system.

Just watch my documentary and you will see what “justice” means to the people who run Ohio’s criminal justice system. People pretend to care when the spotlight is on them. But, when they think nobody is paying attention, they do people like me. The thing with me is that I’m going to make my injustice known to the world!

It might sound crazy at first, but eventually there will be copies of Invisible Chess sent to the United Nations, that is, until my injustice is addressed. I mean, the injustice that I’m being subjected to is nothing but a beautified and modernized form of slavery, and the world needs to see what Ohio does to poor people who break the law.

I realize that I’m not being subjected to cruel North Korea-like punishment. But, just because I broke the law doesn’t mean that somebody has a right to own me!

I’m going to conclude on that note, but I’ll keep you updated. Please help spread the word about Invisible Chess and feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.

KANYE WEST, LEBRON, AND INVISIBLE CHESS: A Headline for Justice and Google

DATE: October 15, 2018
TIME: 11:50 a.m.
LOCATION: Ohio Concentration Camp

I probably should be in good spirits considering that my documentary, INVISIBLE CHESS, recently made it’s debut last month at the Greater Cleveland Urban Film Festival, but I’m actually a little upset because I’ve yet to hear from one person who watched the film besides my main supporters. I’ve come to the realization that most people don’t care about injustice inside the U.S. criminal justice system. People pretend to care when a TV camera is on. But when it’s off, nobody cares. People have become so desensitized that it has become acceptable for prisoners to be tortured by a racist U.S. criminal justice system.

INVISIBLE CHESS shows undeniable proof of me being tortured by Ohio’s criminal justice system, but, yet and still, as it appears, nobody gives a fuck. But what really has pissed me off in the past week is how everybody and their mama has spoken out against Kanye West’s recent meeting with President Trump to discuss criminal justice reform. Now, I definitely don’t agree with Kanye’s political views. But, damn, it can’t be denied that he’s on the front line in the interest of reforming the United States’ racist criminal justice system–that is, while most people are doing absolutely nothing!

In 2014, my situation of injustice received substantial publicity from a comment I made to the Ohio Parole Board about LeBron James. Unfortunately for me, however, not a soul contacted me about my situation. All of the so-called activist athletes and entertainers and organizations—they didn’t say a single word on my behalf. The WNBA’s Britney Griner, however, did tell TMZ that I should stay in prison. But, In her defense, she wasn’t told the whole story about my situation of injustice before being interviewed. But, even still, why would a Black superstar athlete use their voice to help me stay in prison?

At the time, I’d served nearly 21 consecutive years for robbery and assault, as a first-time prisoner. Afterwards, I tried numerous times to reach out to Griner. But, just like all of the other so-called righteous people in the U.S., she said fuck me. Like I said, though, when that TV camera is on it’s “Black Lives Matter! . . .Black Lives Matter!” But when that camera goes away, it’s fuck the struggle. The fact that I’m being subjected to being a modern-day slave–which the 13th Amendment clearly states is permitted in the U.S.—it means nothing. Absolutely, nothing.

Say whatever you want about Kanye West. Just know he’s getting a serious injustice addressed at the highest level, which just might lead to somebody being freed from an unjust term of incarceration.

In closing, I just want to say peace to Kanye West and all of the people who advocate for justice with action and not just words. If you’re a person of substance and believe that justice should be afforded to all, nothing should matter but justice.

Postscript: The photo attached to this post is a picture of my brother James (center). He is an Army Veteran in need of a kidney transplant. I don’t know if I’m a match to donate a kidney, but I’m willing to donate my brother a kidney if anyone is willing to help me arrange for this to happen. If anyone is interested in this matter, please contact me via JPay as soon as possible.

After a Long, Long Hiatus

July 2, 2018
Time: 9:52am
Location: Toledo Corr. Institution

After a long, long hiatus, the What’s Going On Blog is back!

For the past year, I have been dealing with extreme depression, and I just didn’t feel that anything significant was going on in my life that was worth writing about so, I shut the blog down for a while. Today, however, my spirits are in much better shape as the feature-length documentary, INVISIBLE CHESS, about my situation of injustice nears completion.

Invisible Chess Documentary Trailer


Watch the trailer on YouTube.

Finally, I’m on the verge of having my situation of injustice exposed to the world! People are about to get an intimate view of how Ohio’s corrupt and racist criminal justice system treats prisoners. The film shows in detail how I’ve been framed and assaulted by corrupt prison employees, as well as conspired against by crooked Parole Board officials. The audience is about to see why athletes all across the U.S. have been protesting and speaking out against the racist and massive incarcerating of poor people of color.

In other news, my overall situation has improved thanks to the humanitarian efforts of Tahiyrah Sparks of the Free Ohio Movement (FreeOhioMovement.org). Recently, she launched a T-shirt fundraiser to contribute to my freedom campaign. (See this website or Facebook/FreeJasonGoudlock for details), and she’s also heavily promoting my agenda on various social media platforms, as well as her weekly radio show, Sign O’The Times, on BlogTalkRadio.com(Tuesday to Friday,6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.).

On a lighter note, the only bad thing in my life right now, besides still being in prison, is the breaking news that LeBron just parted ways with my CAVS and signed with the L.A Lakers. Damn. … I
guess I won’t be witnessing him win nothing for The Land. But, I’m still hoping one day, I can become involved with his charity organization in some form or fashion.

Before I conclude this post, I want to use my platform to give a shoutout to Ice Cube and his BIG3 professional basketball league! I don’t know if this is allowed by the BIG3, or not, but when I’m
released–I want to tryout for the league! One of my homeboys, who was my cellmate back in the day, Ray “The Rain man” Austin. After he got of prison, he fought boxer Wladimir Klitschko for the
heavyweight title (Klitschko won)! So, like Kevin Garnett yelled at the top of his lungs when he won an NBA championship for the Boston Celtics, “ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!”

Signing off, live from incarceration nation,

Update on Hunger Strike and Lawsuit

October 8, 2017
Time: Early Afternoon
Location: SOCF Medical Ward

On October 2, 2017, a massive hunger strike was supposed to be held by dozens of Lucasville prisoners who are being housed in Restrictive Housing units and are being denied the right to receive and send JPay electronic mail. Unfortunately, as usual with oppressed Ohio prisoners who love to fight against one another and not against injustice, nearly all of them failed to participate in the protest that they all, weeks earlier, pledged to participate in. I am, however, still on the hunger strike and have been moved to the Medical Ward of the prison. I will not be on the strike much longer, though, because I am currently the only person still on the strike, which was never planned to be carried out by one person.

In regards to my civil lawsuit that I filed in 2013 against the six Mansfield pig-officers that assaulted me and framed me, it was my intention to post an update about the following a few weeks ago. When I got the news that I’d lost my appeal, my anger cause me to not even address the issue. In fact, today, I’m still upset that I even allowed myself to believe that I could attain justice through an Amerikkkan court. I lost sight of the fact that I live in a country whose criminal justice system once acquitted the LAPD pig-officers that brutally beat Rodney King, that is, despite the beating being secretly recorded by a video-camera-carrying pedestrian, who released the tape to the media.

Anyone with common sense, upon reading my Black Lives Matter essay, can see that all of the Mansfield pig-officers framed me and lied about everything. Their fabricated claim of having to initiate force against me, due to me allegedly “kicking my cell door open,” was proven to be an outright lie! In Amerikkka’s racist criminal justice system, obvious facts don’t mean anything. The U.S. Constitution might as well be toilet paper, as far as I’m concerned. None of its protections apply to me, nor were they ever intended to. For anyone who wants to pretend that the U.S. Constitution is some noble and esteemed document, just read the blatantly racist and inhumane words of its Thirteenth Amendment.

Although the crooked and racist Amerikkkan criminal justice system can get away with using complex and confusing legal jargon to dismiss the lawsuits of pro se litigants, such as myself, it can’t get away with trying to fool society into believing that it’s a just system. Just as the video footage of Rodney King being beaten by the LAPD showed the world that Amerikkka’s criminal justice system is racist and corrupt as the day is long, so will the forthcoming film documentary about my situation of injustice do the same. I’m telling you, I can’t wait!

Speaking of my documentary, the film is almost complete. I’m not exactly sure what the next step will be once it is? Aside from everything that the filmmaker and producer are going to be doing when it comes time to promote the film, I’m going to be doing everything that I can to assist in the promoting of the film — that is, reaching out to filmmakers of social justice documentaries (e.g. Ava DuVernay), bloggers, journalists, the Black Lives Matter movement, TV and radio sports shows (because of the LeBron James and Brittney Griner tie-ins to my 2014 Parole Board hearing), activist organizations, influential rappers (e.g. Jay Z, Nas, Killer Mike, The Game, etc.), and influential athletes (e.g. Colin Kaepernick, LeBron and D.Wade, Carmelo Anthony, etc.). With this being said, though, I’d like to ask that anyone who is interested in assisting me with spreading the word about the forthcoming documentary to please contact me via regular U.S. mail, so that we can work together towards promoting the film in the interest of attaining justice for not just myself, but for all Ohio old-law prisoners who have been wronged (a video trailer for the film will be released soon). By myself, without question, I am a strong and determined person. With your assistance, together, we can become a powerful and unstoppable force that ushers in true justice!

I conclude this posting in solidarity with all of the hungry people living throughout the world. One day, somewhere, I’m going to provide people with food who are hungry. I know I’m on a hunger strike, but being hungry is not a good feeling at all!

Struggling until we don’t have to,
