Turning The Tide Prison Mail room Message from Tommy Silverstein

This is a P.S. from Tom and I would use it (copy) it into a letter to the officials below censoring  Tom.
This goes with the letter posted just previous to this post again Tommy verbatim:
I borrowed this from Turning The Tide vol.28, Nov. 8,, July-Sept 2016 "Attention Prison Mail Room!" 
"You can not legally suppress the expression & consideration of ideas. Prison walls do not serve to  form a barrier separating prisoners from the protection of the Constitution, according to the same Turner v. Safely ruling. If you exclude printed matter on an improper basis or give a false pretense or rationale for its exclusion, merely because of ideas expressed in it, you are breaking the law. The prisoner denied access to material he wants to read & consider can bring a Civil Rights lawsuit against you with cause for seeking punitive damages. You & those who supervise you & permit or order such denial may be subject to termination of employment. Inclusion of this primer on free speech rights of prisoners makes your denial of access to such material witting & willing. In case of Police Dept. ChicagoV. Mosley, 408 US 92, 95, 92, Sct 2286, 2290 (1972) the court found that [A]bove all else, the First Amendment means that gov't has no power to restrict expression because of its message, subject matter or content"
