Inside this Book – “WOULD YOU BE interested in leaving this place?” Allen West asked the library orderly as he stopped in front of West’s cell. The prisoner pulled a magazine from his stack and slipped it between the bars. “Szh — ,” he replied. “You have to ask me that?” West tossed the magazine onto his cot. I got an idea, he said. “And right away I got leery,” the orderly said years later, “because I know West and too many people know his business.” But he patiently listened as West began divulging his latest scheme. They were standing on the third tier of “C” block near the prison’s library in the nation’s most maximum-security federal prison. If the orderly’s memory is accurate, it was a sliver of time in which West was housed in one of the main cell blocks during his last years on the Rock, rather than in “D” block — the high- security wing known as the “Treatment Unit,” or “TU,” to officers and “seg,” “solitary” or “the hole” to cons. D block was the punishment wing for men who had racked up assaults, knifings, murders or escape attempts. D block men remained in their cells almost twenty-four hours a day; they ate in their cells. Some went to the yard, but on opposite days of men in the main population. West’s behavior in 1960 had earned him a lot of seg time. But just now he was out of D and, as yet, unassigned to a job. The main blocks were not as noisy as D, especially this morning when most guys were out working. But you could hear cons calling out chess plays, or others talking sports. It was “like living in a drum,” the orderly said. He and West kept their voices low.
Inside this book –Breaking the Rock PDF Book by Jolene Babyak – TU-23, IN SEGREGATION, was racked open with a loud crack and a rolling thunder. Out strutted a grinning Allen West. You ‘II be back, one of his friends shouted, laughing. I can hear West peppering the tier with profanity. Then TU-20 slid open and out popped Billy Boggs. You 11 both be back! the voice taunted. The cell house officer unlocked the D block segregation door and both men coolly sauntered over to the west-end desk. They would now be accorded full privileges, including eating in the dining room and going to the yard with the main population. It was Friday, May 5, 1961, a good day to be back in the main pop. West requested a cell along the floor on the outside of B block, and was assigned B-152. Boggs was assigned B-140. Although it had three hundred and thirty-six cells, Alcatraz seldom held more than two hundred and sixty men, thus approximately seventy-five cells were always empty. And while sometimes men moved for security reasons, often they moved because they wanted to. Morris, in his two and a half years on Alcatraz, for example, lived in six different cells. West, because of his behavior, was housed in twenty-nine cells during his last four years on the Rock.
