I'm Michael Moss and I currently have need to hire a lawyer to file paperwork against CCDC for injuries received from being tackled and manhandled by corrections officers while incarcerated. None of the assaults to my person were necessary as I was compliant the entire time I was incarcerated and polite and respectful. I have sustained an injury to my lower back that may be permanent because of one of the incidents and am seeking compensation for mental trauma and physical abuse. I recieved the injury from being tackled and restrained by corrections officers inside the jail before being put into a restraint chair with a hood over my head after repeated pepper sprayings. The officers confused my gasping for air as an attempt to resist I suppose I dont really know. I am asthmatic and was denied my medications while incarcerated for my asthma and for anxiety disorders and psychosis. I pleaded with the jailers to provide my medication but they insisted that I didnt have any prescribed which was false. I currently am suffering from PTSD from previous traumatic instances that was only strengthened by the experience in the jail at CCDC. I am currently sentenced to mental health court and having to take ineffective medications in place of my typical prescription as the court systems's behavioral health program is centered around a facility that does not prescribe them. I need the lawyer to get the sentencing appealed and file counter suits against the correctional officers that abused me. Youtube.com has a video of some of the incidents that occured in the jail under the title "Cherokee County Detenton Center incident caught on camera" the video shows me being tackled and restrained several times in the jailhouse for virtually no apparent reason. It doesnt however include footage of the restraints or the hood they put on me afterward. I assure you if it did include that footage it would disturb those of you who believe in a prisoner's rights. I was also pepper sprayed for speaking in a polite manner on two occasions and just for accidentally stepping on an inmate in a crowded cell on another. I also had to be confined to a cell with a sex offender who was smearing feces on the door and walls at another time while trying to bite through his veins on his hand. This encounter only ended after pleading with the guards for over an hour to come relocate me to a different cell or restrain the man who was a that point banging his head against a wall and leaving blood streaks everywhere. The entire experience has me in a state of massive depression. This GoFundMe is here to try to come up with the initial cost of a lawyer to plead my case in court.
