Plum City – (AbelDanger.net). United States Marine Field McConnell has linkedMI-3 Innholders hit list apparently adopted by George Osborne as a guest of The Grove Hotel at the 2013 Bilderberg conference to Serco’s Wi-Fi tag-and-bomb operation on 9/11 and the cuff-and-snuff death of a Canadian listed as Alois Dvorzac in the MI-3 Wandering Persons Registry set up by Norman Inkster.
McConnell claims that the MI-3 Innholders guests gave their Bilderberg hit lists to Serco director Maureen Baginski and hotel triage teams which allegedly deployed tag-and-bomb devices in front of the Sheraton Pentagon City Hotel on 9/11 and currently employ cuff-and-snuff film crews in privately-run prisons with custody of script kiddies such as Mr. Dvorzac.

Robert Burke To Be Sentenced In February.
A former air traffic controller accused of planting homemade bombs in March outside the Grand Junction homes of four co-workers and a Federal Aviation Administration official pleaded guilty Friday to a single count that could land him in prison for 20 years.
Robert Burke, 54, who was arrested in Utah in April, was indicted May 2 by a federal grand jury on a host of charges. Instead, he agreed to plead guilty to a charge of malicious damage to a building used in interstate commerce.
U.S. District Judge Robert Blackburn said the charge is punishable by five to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000. Prosecutors said they will recommended a term of 10 years when Burke is sentenced on Feb. 2.
Burke had worked for Serco Group PLC, a British company that staffs air traffic control towers at airports in Grand Junction and 55 other locations. He was fired in 2004 after working for Serco for four years.
The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms has said the Grand Junction bombs were similar to a device that exploded at Serco offices in Murfreesboro, Tenn., in February.
Nobody was injured only minor property damage was reported when three of the bombs he allegedly planted in Grand Junction exploded. Two others were defused by bomb technicians.”
“Man, 84, dies handcuffed in hospital: UK border control by the GEO Group
A shocking report on Harmondsworth, the British immigration lock-up run by GEO, America’s second biggest prisons contractor. Who are the GEO Group and what do they stand for?
At Gatwick Airport last year, on Wednesday 23 January, British immigration officials detained an elderly Canadian man. He was taken to hospital. Then he was locked up at Harmondsworth Immigration Removal Centre. A doctor examined him, reporting to the authorities that he was “frail, 84 years old, has Alzheimer’s disease . . .demented”.
The doctor marked his papers: “UNFIT for detention or deportation. Requires social care.”
The British Home Office chose to ignore the medical advice and continued to detain him.
On 8 February he was taken to hospital in handcuffs, then returned to his cell. Two days later he was taken back to hospital and kept in handcuffs for five long hours. His condition worsened. The cuffs stayed on. His heart stopped. Medical staff tried and failed to resuscitate him. The handcuffs were removed. His name was Alois Dvorzac.
In November 2012, another dying man had been taken in handcuffs from his Harmondsworth cell for treatment in hospital. He stayed cuffed while sedated, stayed cuffed while undergoing an angioplasty. Eventually the handcuffs were removed. Seven hours later he was dead.
Both cases are revealed today by the Chief Inspector of Prisons, Nick Hardwick, in a shocking report on Harmondsworth, the immigration centre near Heathrow Airport that holds about 600 men awaiting removal from Britain.
They are detained for the “shortest possible period”. That’s the official line. In real life, many are detained indefinitely.
The inspectors, who dropped in unannounced last Summer, found one man who had spent two and a half years locked up at Harmondsworth. They said he seemed unlikely ever to be released since the Home Office had failed for years to obtain travel documentation for him.
Harmondsworth guards routinely subjected detainees to long periods of solitary confinement without reason, the inspectors reported. Muslims were more likely than others to be isolated.
Hunger strikers were monitored excessively, and for reasons that had nothing to do with their medical needs. Some were held regardless of clear medical grounds for release.
According to Home Office rules, victims of torture should not be detained. Inspectors found that Harmondsworth’s medical reports on alleged victims of torture were often poorly done, putting victims at risk of continued detention — a complaint raised repeatedly over years by the prisons inspectorate and, over years, ignored by the Home Office.
Detainees claiming to be under 18 were held at Harmondsworth for too long while their age was determined. Sometimes Home Office staff alone made age assessments, in contravention of the rules.
In one chilling insight into the department’s moral standards and modus operandi, the inspectors said that a charity volunteer who had visited detainees to offer support and advice had been tapped for information by the Home Office.
Among numerous examples of neglect and disrespect, the inspectors noted dirty food trolleys, beds without pillows, excessively hot showers, three men held in double cells, long waits in locked vans after overnight drives from other facilities . . .
Who runs Harmondsworth?
Reckoned to be Britain’s most horrible immigration lock-up, Harmondsworth is run for the British government by the GEO Group, America’s second biggest prisons company. In the UK, GEO also runs Dungavel Immigration Removal Centre (in South Lanarkshire) and escorts prisoners and detainees in partnership with the British outsourcing company, Amey.
Who are the GEO Group? What are they like?
Industry insiders speak of the international security industry as one big family. Here’s a little family history.
The GEO Group was spawned by The Wackenhut Corporation, founded by George R Wackenhut. A former FBI agent, Wackenhut started a three-man detective agency in Miami in 1954, providing security services to stay afloat, according to his 2005 obituary in the New York Times.
To impress commercial clients, Wackenhut dressed his guards in helmets and paratrooper boots.
He recruited former members of the CIA, the FBI and elite military forces to join his management team and the company’s board, the New York Times reported.
The Wackenhut Corporation gathered intelligence on individuals, “both to run background checks for their clients and as an outgrowth of George Wackenhut’s anti-communist views”, according to the New York University Digital Archive that holds some of those papers. By 1971 Wackenhut held files on 2.5 million individuals.
The company recruited ex-FBI chief Clarence M. Kelley, ex-Secret Service James J. Rowley, Frank C. Carlucci, former defense secretary and former CIA deputy director, according to the New York Times. William J. Casey was Wackenhut’s outside legal counsel before Ronald Reagan appointed him director of central intelligence. Such connections “fuelled speculation that the company was working with the CIA, a relationship that Mr. Wackenhut denied”.
Well, he would.
In 2002, on George Wackenhut’s retirement, Group 4 Falck bought The Wackenhut Corporation, including a majority stake in its prisons business (the Wackenhut Corrections Corporation). The following year, the prisons business, headed by George Zoley, bought its shares back from Group 4 Falck, and relaunched itself as the GEO Group.
The GEO Group continues to invest heavily in political lobbying. A 2011 research report (PDF here) by the Washington-based Justice Policy Institute demonstrated how GEO, among other private prison companies, buys influence, promoting policies that lead to higher rates of incarceration.
Two years ago, as if by magic, GEO became a ‘real estate investment trust’. Why would a prisons company call itself a real estate trust? Tax avoidance is the primary motive. GEO celebrated its reincarnation by paying shareholders a special dividend of $350 million. (PDF here).
George Zoley, GEO’s chairman and chief executive officer, took $6 million in pay and perks in 2012, according to Bloomberg. His retirement agreement (here) lands him a $7 million lump sum if he goes this year, aged 64. If he holds out until 71, there’s $9 million coming his way. His shares in GEO Group alone (170,200 of them) are valued, by today’s price, at around $6 million.
Government contracting is, demonstrably, a good thing for GEO Group shareholders and executives. What about prisoners, detainees and the public purse?
“Staff shortages, mismanagement and lax oversight had long turned it into a cauldron of violence, where female employees had sex with inmates, pitted them against each other, gave them weapons and joined their gangs, according to court records, interviews and a U.S. Justice Department report.”
Responding to criticism, GEO spokesman Pablo Paez said that focusing on troubled institutions such as Walnut Grove “yields an unfair, unbalanced, and inaccurate portrayal of the totality of our industry’s and our company’s long standing record of quality operations and services which have delivered significant savings for taxpayers”.
The reporters noted: “No national data tracks whether the facilities are run as well as public ones, and private-prison lobbyists for years have successfully fought efforts to bring them under federal open-records law.”
Here in Britain, one thing today’s report from the Prisons Inspectorate doesn’t mention is the case of Prince Kwabena Fosu, a 31 year old Ghanaian man who died at Harmondsworth on 30 October 2012. Fellow detainees claimed that GEO guards beat him, stripped him and abandoned him naked in an unheated room. Police said the death was being treated as “non-suspicious”.”
“Security companies G4S and Serco are to hand over their contracts to electronically tag criminals following fraud allegations over the way they charged the government.
They have been told to hand over all their responsibilities to rivals Capitaon an interim basis by the end of March, the justice secretary, Chris Grayling, has said. Capita is one of four companies in the running to take over the service permanently.
Grayling said in a Commons written statement: “We have signed a contract with Capita to take over the management of the existing electronic monitoring services on an interim basis.
“This will mean that management of these services, which are now operated by G4S and Serco, will transition to Capita by the end of the current financial year.
“Under these arrangements, Capita will be using the systems and equipment of G4S and Serco, but the two companies will no longer have a direct role in delivering the service on the ground.”
Grayling last month rejected an offer from G4S of a £24.1m “credit note” after it admitted that overcharging on its contract for the electronic monitoring of thousands of offenders had been going on for years.
The Serious Fraud Office has started a full-scale criminal investigation into both companies over their Ministry of Justice (MoJ) contracts.
Serco has co-operated with ministry inquiries since July and said it would refund any agreed overcharges. Some offenders were claimed to be under tagging restrictions but were found to be dead, back in prison or overseas.Both companies withdrew from tagging contracts due to be renewed. Other companies named as preferred bidders for the work are Buddi, Astrium and Telefonica.
Across government there is now in effect a moratorium on Serco or G4S getting any new work. Although they can still bid for contracts, they will not be awarded any unless they are given a clean bill of health over the tagging dispute.
Grayling said on Thursday: “This signals a fresh start for electronic monitoring that brings us a step closer to introducing the most advanced tagging system in the world.
“Monitoring the movements of dangerous and repeat offenders will be vital in cutting crime, creating a safer society with fewer victims and offering greater protection and reassurance to the public.”
An audit by PricewaterhouseCoopers, launched in May, alleged that overcharging began at least as far back as the start of the current contracts in 2005.
Serco, which announced in July that it would not be bidding again for the tagging contract, said it had been working with the MoJ and Capita “to ensure a smooth and effective transfer of the contract”.
Grayling said the current contracts were due to expire at the end of March but he wanted to ensure continuity until new contracts came into effect later in 2014.
G4S said it was not being stripped of its contract. It said it had already withdrawn from it.”
“Support Services for Starwood Hotels Group Starwood Hotels Group, owner of some of the world’s most prestigious hotels, has appointed Serco as preferred bidder for a £7m contract to provide a range of support services to the Sheraton Grand in Edinburgh, the Westin in Dublin and the 5 star Turnberry resort on Scotland’s west coast. The contract, which has a 5 year term, is an extension to services already provided to other hotels in the Starwood Group and includes buildings maintenance and security, engineering support and help desk services.”
“The GEO Group, Inc. (GEO) is a company specializing in corrections, detention and mental health treatment. It maintains facilities in North America, Australia, South Africa and the United Kingdom. GEO Group facilities include maximum, medium and minimum security prisons, immigration detention centers, minimum security detention centers and mental health and residential treatment facilities.
Wackenhut Corrections Corporation (WCC) was formed as a division of The Wackenhut Corporation (now a subsidiary of G4S Secure Solutions) in 1984. It was incorporated as a Wackenhut subsidiary in 1988. In July 1994, WCC became a separately traded public company. In 2003, WCC management raised funds to repurchase all common stock held by G4S, changing its name to The GEO Group, Inc.
In 2005, the GEO Group acquired Correctional Services Corporation (CSC) for US$62 million in cash, and assumed $124 million of that company’s debt. GEO then sold CSC’s juvenile services division back to CSC’s former CEO, James Slattery, for $3.75 million; this acquisition would then become Slattery’s Youth Services International.
On August 12, 2010, the GEO Group acquired the troubled Cornell Companies, formerly Cornell Corrections, for $730 million in stock and cash.
As of the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012, GEO managed 96 facilities totaling approximately 73,000 beds worldwide, including 65,949 active beds and 6,056 idle beds. The company had an average facility occupancy rate of 95.7% for 2012.
GEO conducts its business through four business segments: U.S. corrections segment; International services segment; GEO Care segment; and Facility construction and design segment. The U.S. corrections segment primarily encompasses GEO’s U.S.-based privatized corrections and detention business. The International services segment primarily consists of GEO’s privatized corrections and detention operations in South Africa, Australia and the United Kingdom. International services reviews opportunities to further diversify into related foreign-based governmental-outsourced services on an ongoing basis. The GEO Care segment, which is operated by GEO’s wholly owned subsidiary GEO Care, Inc., comprises GEO’s privatized mental health and residential treatment services business, all of which is currently conducted in the U.S. GEO’s Facility construction and design segment primarily consists of contracts with various state, local and federal agencies for the design and construction of facilities for which GEO has been awarded management contracts.
In 2002, the GEO Group (as WCC) organized its political action committee.
In February 2013, the GEO Group’s private foundation pledged US$6 million to company founder George Zoley’s alma mater, Florida Atlantic University. In return, the GEO Group received naming rights to the university’s football stadium.Then in April, after pressure from protestors, GEO Group withdrew its $6 million gift to Florida Atlantic University.
In 2001 an inmate was murdered at GEO’s Rio Grande Detention Center in Texas by two other inmates. In 2006 GEO was sued by the man’s family and found liable for $47.5 million for destruction of evidence and negligently causing the man’s death. In 2009 GEO appealed the court’s decision and a verdict of $42.5 million was upheld.
On April 24, 2007, inmates rioted for two hours at the GEO Group’s New Castle Correctional Facility in Indiana, resulting in fires and minor injuries to staff and inmates. The Indiana Department of Correction concluded that its recent transfer of 600 inmates over six weeks from Arizona to a new section at New Castle contributed to a lack of experience among prison staff, but held the inmates themselves responsible for the riot. The riot prompted Indiana to suspend further transfers of Arizona inmates, pending measures to help out-of-state inmates adjust to Indiana prison policies, and to ensure inmates are transferred more gradually.
Between 2005 and 2009, at least eight people had died at the GEO Group-operated George W. Hill Correctional Facility inDelaware County, Pennsylvania, the state’s only privately run jail. Several of those deaths resulted in lawsuits by family members who said the facility did not provide adequate medical care or proper supervision for offenders. On December 31, 2008, GEO pulled out of operations at this facility, “citing underperformance and frequent litigations” as the reasons.
In 2007, the Texas Youth Commission (TYC) fired seven employees after discovering inmates at the GEO-run Coke County Juvenile Justice Center living in “deplorable conditions.” An inspection by the TYC found the facility to be understaffed, ill-managed, and unsanitary. The TYC ordered that all inmates be transferred elsewhere, terminated their contract with GEO, and subsequently closed the facility. GEO had run the facility since 1994.
In November 2010 plaintiffs filed a federal lawsuit against the agencies that operate and own the Walnut Grove Youth Correctional Facility (YCF), saying that the prison authorities allowed abuses and negligence to occur at the facility. The lawsuit states that prison guards engaged in sexual intercourse with the prisoners and smuggled illegal drugs into the facilities, and that prison authorities denied education and medical care. As of that month the prison had about 1,200 prisoners ages 13–22; the lawsuit said that half of the prisoners were incarcerated for nonviolent offenses. Weeks prior to the filing of the lawsuit, United States Department of Justice officials informed Governor of Mississippi Haley Barbour that the department had started an investigation concerning the prison. Their report described the conditions there as “among the worst that we’ve seen in any facility anywhere in the nation,” where poorly trained guards, some with gang affiliations, brutally beat youth and used excessive pepper spray, and showed deliberate indifference to prisoners possessing homemade knives, which were often used in gang fights and rapes. GEO settled the lawsuit in February 2012 and it was agreed to move the remaining youths from the prison to more suitable locations that conform to juvenile standards.Former Walnut Grove YCF warden and eight-term mayor, William Grady Sims, resigned and pleaded guilty to removing a female inmate to a motel for sex and pressuring her to lie about it. He faces up to 20 years in Federal prison. Sims also owned 18 vending machines inside the prison.
In July 2012, two illegal immigrants in Florida turned themselves in to police knowing that they would be transported to and housed in GEO’s Broward Transitional Center, a 720-bed facility in Pompano Beach, Florida. It is the only privately owned immigration detention center in Florida. Their intention was to report on the conditions inside the facility firsthand; these anecdotal reports included “substandard or callous medical care, including a woman taken for ovarian surgery and returned the same day, still bleeding, to her cell, and a man who urinated blood for days but wasn’t taken to see a doctor.” In response to these and other serious allegations, congressman Ted Deutch of Pompano Beach, wrote a letter in September 2012, to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), regarding the contract under which GEO operates the facility, requesting a case-by-case investigation. Twenty five other congressional representatives signed on to the inquiry.”
