701 SOUTH ABEL STREET,
The purpose of this website is to
shed light on the common abuses and mistreatment of inmates
by correctional officers at the Santa Clara County - Elmwood
Correctional Facility in Milpitas California.
This website is dedicated to officer J. Ebling. "THE PUNISHER "
Here is the respect he deserves:
When I was in custody at the farm "Elmwood minimum
security camp", I was trying to eat my breakfast one
morning in the cafeteria when a correctional officer
named: J. Ebling approached me & told me to move to
another table. No sooner than I was reseated, he snapped at me
again to move to another table.
Then he tells me to stand up, and then sit down again in the same
spot. Then he asked me if I was finished eating yet, when obviously
I had barely started.
He then started shouting: Are you finished? Why are you taking so
long? I simply, answered him, that it was because he kept
telling me to move. Then he shouted, "That's it, You get the hell
out of here!" He then grabbed my breakfast away from me &
threw it away. BEING FED IS AN INMATES RIGHT, NOT A PRIVILEGE!.
A correctional officer may under no circumstances withhold
food from an inmate for disciplinary purposes. The ironic
thing was, I hadn't done anything whatsoever to him. He asked me a
question, and I answered it simply and honestly. If he couldn't
handle the answer, then he shouldn't have asked the question.
I have witnessed other inmates being deprived of food by
correctional officers on 4 occasions over a 12 day period. (
Each occasion appeared to me that the correctional officer
was being just trying to be a bully, & that they were
acting out their own anger and personal frustrations,
on non aggressive inmate victims.) I have also
witnessed inmates in the housing units eating toothpaste
from being so hungry. From my own personal
experience , it seemed Ebling was having a bad day,
perhaps because someone else had ticked him off earlier, he
chose me to pick a fight with.
This was only one of many examples of inmates being abused
by correctional officers at the Elmwood correctional
facility, in Milpitas, California. and the Main Jail
in San Jose, California. Even though this
site is named:
its focus will be on both Santa Clara County adult
jail facilities, and also
If you or anyone you know has been
abused or mistreated while in custody ( or have witnessed abuse ) in any
Santa Clara County Jail Facility, by a Santa Clara County Correctional
Officer, any DOC staff member, or a Santa Clara County
Sherriff Deputy, please email:
Whenever possible, please include
the identity of the officer. It due time that they
learn to behave
like respectful, civilized human beings. If they
respect others, then they will be respected.
If they continue to act as childish
bullies, & arrogant condescending fools, then they will
on this website.
In theory: Inmates are
incarcerated AS PUNISHMENT, not FOR PUNISHMENT.

Others are decent people that simply have a job to do & they do it well.
Officer Snell for example is probably the most feared and respected officer at
Farm. He also treats the inmates fairly and respectfully & doesn't abuse
or degrade anyone . I also want to acknowledge
officer Bock who was
courteous to me while I was in custody. Officer Bock behaved
like a gentleman,
and never treated me less than human. Lt. Doug Taylor was also
respectful and professional when I addressed my
grievance to him.
I don't know what steps he took toward resolving my grievance. He did
promise me a response in writing. As of this publication date, I
have yet to receive it.
