Good morning, My name isXXXXX - Carr. I am writing to you because of my son Christopher Charles Clemons Birth date Jan.7,1984
Arrest number(NNN) NNN-NNNN
Christopher was arrested early July 2008. He is a very sick young man and has been in and out of Mental hospitals for the last 4 years.
I did not have him released on bail because he had stopped taking his medication and I could not guarantee that he would be around to go to court.
His situation however has me very concerned.
His paperwork was sent over to the prison over a month ago by his case manager and doctor. The paperwork stated in detail his mental condition and the medication that he needed to focus. Without his medication he sees things hears things and is verbally combative, grandiose, and difficult to understand and follow rules.
Christopher is a very talented and bright young man. He was raised with two loving professional parents in XXXXX XXXXX, Pa.
He has never been arrested before and has never even received so much as a jaywalking
ticket. He was in college when he broke down.
He is mentally ill and off his medication. He wears contacts because he is extremely nearsighted. I was told that he will have to wear glasses but he never wears them because they give him migraine headaches. . He can barely see. His vision is extremely poor. I have contacts and solution for him but I am at a loss as to how to navigate your system. He has not told anyone that he is almost legally blind. He does not want anyone to know. ( remember he is mentally ill and his thinking process makes no sense to normal people)
He has never made a phone call home because he cannot figure out how to do it. I have a 484 number and he is not allowed to call me because it is a cell number and I do not live in Philadelphia. Unless we come to see him we do not hear from him.
Yesterday I took off work to visit and found him to be in serious stress. He is being held in the hold because he apparently did not move fast enough for some of the guards.
I am a teacher. I also sit on the Executive Board for the Philadelphia Federation Of teachers. My husband is the famous artist Abdul A. Ahmad. We are asking for your help.
I am asking you to look into this matter and get back to me at your earliest convenience.
I will pass this letter on to anyone that will listen to me starting with the State Attorney General
Without my help my son could end up to be another statistic. I am giving you a heads up that I will be on a campaign to see to it that my son receives proper treatment and that he is not mistreated. Without my support he will get lost in your very stressful system.
I am taking the next couple of days off to advocate for my son.
I would appreciate it if you would give this matter some serious attention.
Leslye Clemons - Carr
