Making The Walls Transparent

Oregon Style



Once this site is up and running you will find inside these pages information for friends, and family members of inmates incarcerated in Oregon's prison system. 

I hope that I can give those out there both the hope and information that will provide them with the knowledge to understand the Oregon prison system of today. So that they can help their loved ones survive the system within the walls of the prisons of this state. And to help them better understand that they are not alone  while waiting for those they love to come home.


MTWT-Oregon is a NON-PROFIT Prison Advocacy Organization helping with the needs of Prisoners and their Families.


As of today, February 15,  2005, what you see on this site are the basic facts that the Oregon DOC publicizes on their website.  You who are close to the system; prisoners, families, ex-and current DOC employees, will write the rest.



Also Introducing




 Oregon Department of Corrections



Oregon Department of Correction's Prisons
*In any of our work, "cops" refers to irresponsible and/or immoral police officers, just as "guard" refers to the same breed of quot;Correctional" Officers. I have the utmost respect for people who do these difficult jobs in a professional manner, always remembering that they are dealing with human beings.

In fact MTWT's Gold Star Award will be given throughout the site for employees of the department who show professionalism above the norm to those who nominate them.

MTWT's Vision For America:
Gentle in Nature; Bold in its Visions; Passionate in Spirit; and Enlightened in its Judgment.




Our goal is to make prisons places of great healing by encouraging professionalism from those in authority and rehabilitation for the citizens they keep so that society will be safer when prisoners have finished their time and go home.

Ill-begotten power in the hands of irresponsible people
is far more dangerous than most people locked in American prisons today.

When we stand against the destruction that immoral leaders and bad policies cause, we stand to defend the same principles that every war our nation has ever been involved in at least pretended to defend! The  concept of the energy called God demands that we stand against all evil things.  Our Spirits tell us that we do not stand alone!
With Great Love,
Oregon Director Deborah Arriaga, CT Director Joanna Ferris, FL Director Kay Lee

DISCLAIMER: Although I cannot guarantee the truth of each incident in these pages, I do guarantee that the big picture presented here is as accurate as I can possibly present it. Although the information contained herein does mainly come from prisoners, their accounts are backed up by copies of grievances, medical records, family testimony, lawyer contacts, witness statements, samples of water, food and burned skin, and at times the DOC's own personnel, some of whom have remained in contact to guide me and validate whatever parts of the picture they could. These accounts belong to others. Therefore I can claim no ownership or credit, nor can I accept any responsibility for the contents. I am simply the recorder who listens when no one else will and an amplifier for the voiceless.

For shame that they should so badly need MTWT
