**Victims of brutality behind bars: The harrowing tale of two prisoners and their fight for justice**
Cush’Mir McBride and Ryan Samsel have revealed the shocking abuse they suffered at the hands of prison guards in their federal detention centers. Both men, incarcerated for separate offenses, endured horrifying conditions and violence while awaiting trial. Their story shines a damning light on the prison system and raises urgent questions about the treatment of inmates. Through sharing their experiences, McBride and Samsel hope to fight for much-needed reform and support for those who similarly suffer in silence behind bars.
Cush’Mir McBride, charged for alleged involvement in civil unrest, has spoken out about the brutal treatment he received at the hands of prison officials. As an avid supporter of former President Donald Trump and a refusal to take the COVID-19 vaccine, McBride became targeted and, more specifically, for slipping food to his fellow inmate, Ryan Samsel. In one particularly violent episode, officers left McBride severely injured, with broken teeth, an exposed flesh leg wound, and likely fractured ribs. Despite repeated pleas for medical help, McBride’s suffering went ignored by staff, leading him and Samsel to resort to desperate measures to ensure their wellbeing.
Ryan Samsel is another whistleblower against the prison guards’ cruelty. Samsel himself has faced abuse at the hands of the same authorities and, alongside McBride, has experienced widespread neglect. The cruel indifference of prison officials forced both men towards creative solutions, but their situations remained unchanged for some time.
