I made my routine phone call to ADX today. I was put on hold for at least 5 minutes. I hung up and redialed. Lo and behold, I actually got through to a human being. Knowing it would be useless to ask about Tom’s health, I asked if he was still getting his mail and if he could write back to his correspondents. I didn’t get an answer specifically about Tom, but I was given the usual (I assume) spiel about BOP policy, namely, inmates are free to receive mail and to respond to such mail. I was told that the only way I could find out about Tom’s condition is by writing to him via snail mail. I have done that, but I fear the letter won’t reach Colorado much before Friday (I live in Canada), and I still have no way of knowing if Tom is receiving his mail, or if he is in any shape to answer it.
To say that BOP is doing everything in its power to frustrate any and all of Tom’s friends and family would be a gross understatement. I will continue my quest, and I will continue to share my experiences with readers of this website. Meanwhile, if anyone has any information about Tom, I urge you to post it here to share with concerned readers.
