On November 1st 2021, I, Wisconsin prisoner Nate A. Lindell (facebook.com/PrometheusWrites) WAS to begin a trial in the U.S. District Court in Madison (wiwd.uscourts.gov) for Case #18-cv-895, over staff in the state's supermax prison allowing another prisoner to bring a foot-long steel knife to group recreation and stab me three times in my head and several times elsewhere, almost killing me. A DVD containing the footage from staffs' body cams and security cameras of the stabbing and staffs' response to it was filed on 27 Sept. 2021 (see, using pacer.gov, Dkt. #187-33), on which a guard, Shelly D. Hill, said, after the stabbing, that the guy who stabbed me should not have been allowed to go to rec with anyone, because "He's from Iowa. Look up his history. It's all manufacturing weapons. That's why he's here in Wisconsin!" (Dkt. #187-33, Exhibit 543 at 502)1

I filed a motion (Dkt. #226) arguing that the audio & video footage filed by the defendants to be released to my agent and the public (any journalists or activists who want it), per the First Amendment, as I am a freelance journalist (using https://betweenthebars.org/blogs/540/ & facebook.com/PrometheusWrites as my platforms) and the public has a right to know about staff in the state's "former" supermax prison forcing captives to risk serious assault and death by attending recreation (in locked cages, with no guards present), with other prisoners deemed too dangerous to be around staff without handcuffs on, in order to be released from solitary confinement. Judge Crocker denied that motion, "without prejudice." (Dkt #228)1
