On July 3, 2003, we presented Part One in this story about Robert Oest, an officer at the Federal Correctional Institution in Englewood, Colorado. He was one of nine guards assigned to watch Oklahoma City bombers Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols. He still will not disclose what he and McVeigh talked about.

I believe an investigation should be conducted for obstruction of justice and failure to report or investigate valid death threats at the Federal Correctional Institution in Englewood (FCI Englewood) during 1996 and 1997. It is important to note that I have only recently learned the information that is disclosed in this letter which I believe warrants an investigation - had I known this information at the time it happened, I would have alerted the appropriate people as I am now. Due to the severity of what's disclosed herein, and the fact that many of the staff members involved are still employed with the Bureau of Prisons, it is important to uncover the truth and to take appropriate action against those who failed to follow the proper procedures.

Prisons are not built for comfort, but when guards are allowed to beat inmates and co-workers remain silent, the beatings can only escalate in frequency and severity. Last week, photographs of prisoners in Iraq being humiliated and tortured by American soldiers shocked the world, turning up the heat on a problem which has been simmering for decades.

A brief filed recently in Colorado contains copies of internal Bureau of Prison (BOP) documents which focus a bright light on an environment of violence, threats, fear and secrecy. On August 8, 2003, attorney Daniel Minahan of the Lakewood, Colorado firm of Minahan and Shapiro, P.C. filed an appeal with the US Court of Appeals on behalf of Robert Oest. The description of what happened to the former correctional officer exposes a dark secret - a cycle of violence exists within the BOP which fans the flames of hatred some inmates take back to the streets. Here's attorney Minahan's verbatim Statement of the Case and some of the internal documents:

On April 26, 1996, one of my days off, I went to Special Investigative Services (SIS) about what I had witnessed. I told them I wanted our conversation "off the record" for fear of retaliation and what it might do to my career. I knew this wasn't the first time the lieutenant had an altercation with an inmate and I was concerned about the potential for his action (or inaction) to cause more harm if left unchallenged. Because the lieutenant was in a supervisory position, accountable for the training and leadership of officers, I was very concerned that his "methods" would be taught to rookie officers and accepted as an appropriate way to deal with inmates. More than anything else, I was hoping to gain a more seasoned perspective about the situation. SIS acknowledged that the conversation was "off the record" and wouldn't be discussed with anyone. I told them about the March incident and the beating of the inmate. After I finished, they immediately picked up the phone and called the captain. After summarizing what I'd said, they handed me the phone. The captain asked me to prepare an affidavit describing the incident and I immediately panicked. I told him I did not want to, but he ordered me to do it. I had no choice in the matter. It was a direct order from my supervisor and I complied.

On February 7, 1993, I was appointed to the position of Correctional Officer, GS-007-06 step 1 with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, FCI Englewood, in Littleton, Colorado. With my background and experience in military police work and corrections, the position was a perfect fit and I was honored to be one of the chosen individuals to be given such an important role in society. It was to be the beginning of a life-long career serving my government. I believed this career would be one in which I could
