Retaliation, in that Mail-room Supervisor G. Vandiver, specifically, made a threat to Alvaro that his correspondents (we presume to be all) “be put on a negative mail list”.
Alvaro has had mail problems before, but this is an open threat made by the Supervisor and can't go unchallenged, that stemmed from certain pages being removed (confiscated) from a copy of the book “Defying The Tomb”, written by Virginia state prisoner and Minister of Defense for the New Afrikan Black Panther Party Prison Chapter (NABPP/PC) Kevin (Rashid) Johnson, sent him by Inside Out Books (the publisher) in Seattle, Washington; the pages Supervisor Vandiver and the mail-room objected to, claimed would breakdown the prison's operation - with prisoner disruptions - strikes - and rioting.
 
The fact that the [4] pages removed earlier (pages 112-113 – and 120-121), were re-sent individually to Alvaro without incident, and that Inside Out Books was never sent an official notice for denial of publication, would strongly support suspicions that the retaliatory nature of Vandiver's reaction to Alvaro's filed Grievance caused the threatening remark made about his mail in or out; because they must have realized their jobs were in jeopardy and that they were out of TDCJ & TBCJ policy compliance. This is not an idle threat, because prison (unit) administrations generally allow officers discretion to control prisoners this way, so it can never be credited for even happening IF an impression isn't made to Huntsville or on a Senior Warden by supporters & the public.
 
You’ll have to give Alvaro’s TDCJ-CID# 255735 when you call, and mention he’s in Administrative Segregation at the Alfred D. Hughes Unit in Gatesville, Texas.
 
Tell Huntsville that we demand the “pages in dispute” that were torn out, but these same pages then re-sent separately by the publisher of the book in question “Defying The Tomb”, being confiscated once again must be returned to him, and an explanation why there were two different decisions made by the mail room in regards to not allowing the pages and then admitting them separately later.
