Ben Turk received a letter from Toledo Correctional, following up on his restriction from visitation. It’s a form he received after June 10th informing him that he’s got until seven days after June 2nd to appeal his removal from BlackJack’s visitor list.
None of the other prisons in Ohio bothered to send this form, but Toledo, where Sean was held captive, beaten, and tortured years ago and is probably still known and resented seemed to relish the fact. The original letter from central office said Ben would be restricted “indefinitely” but ToCI staff used caps lock and bold to indicate that the restriction is “effective until: permanently!”
Ben Turk has been blocked from accessing JPay, the email communication system used by the ODRC. He has also had his visitation to any prison in Ohio restricted. This means he is not only blocked from visiting Sean, but the half-dozen other prisoners, including death row prisoners framed after the Lucasville Uprising who he planned on visiting next month.
The notice of this visitation restriction also threatens that state and federal authorities have been notified. We’re not sure what those authorities might do with the baseless allegations that Trainwreck Trevor invented to link Ben to whatever perceived threats they’re talking about, but we’re kind of expecting the worst. Because people who like to torture people really don’t want to be exposed or stopped.
