D.S., 2p. 4to., photocopy of an official statement alleging that officers of Corcoran State Prison''s Investigative Services Unit did not follow proper procedures in searching Manson''s cell. In part: "Prison official(s) and correctional officers... ''grossly negligent'' in their official reporting... The term ''jeopardize the security'' is a conclusion that should be made based on articulated facts... Inmate Manson maintains his innocence of not having any knowledge as of how the weapon got in his cell other than being set up" He also poses a set of question to the ISU guards who conducted the search: "... Correctional officer R. Castro, in the event your ''source'' of ''information'' is classified as ''confidential'' is the confidential source an ''inmate source''?... Correctional officer R. Adame... did you ''advise'' inmate Manson of his ''Miranda'' rights?..." Manson is well-known as having an extensive working knowledge of the legal process, and has filed numerous complaints and motions from prison since his arrest. The photocopy has been signed boldly in black ink at the bottom. Folds, else fine.
