Tags: US v. Fincher
It has come to my attention of late that the BOP in Forrest City is not upholding its responsibilities with regard to Wayne. Even before Wayne’s arrest, he had health issues that included Pericardial effusion (excess fluid around the heart). The Federal Government knew this as soon as they took Wayne into custody. Wayne must take medication to reduce the fluid build-up around his heart. The specific drug he takes is Lasix.
However, over the last month, the people who run the Forrest City facility claim they cannot get (or afford) the drug Lasix so Wayne cannot get his medication. Hence, they have refused to give Wayne the medication he requires.
However, it cannot be true they have no funds to get a drug that is on Wal-mart’s $4.00 list. Somehow, I have a very difficult time believing that the Federal Government cannot get the drug for less than Wal-mart gets it. I know the government is “broke,” but somehow they find money for everything else under the sun. Here they have a clear-cut responsibility, and they are refusing to uphold it.
The problem can be life-threatening, and it would be very beneficial to Wayne to get his medication as soon as possible.
Any and all correspondence regarding Wayne must include the following:
Hollis Wayne Fincher
Federal Correction Complex ‘Low’
Forrest City, Arkansas 72336
The address for the Forrest City Facility staff follows:
FCI FORREST CITY LOW
FEDERAL CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTION
P.O. BOX 7000
FORREST CITY, AR 72336
Wayne has a little over two years left, with a release date of 08-04-2012. It would be very good if he made it.
