The Prison sytem at the Georgia State Prison is deplorable, thanks especially to Officer Dubree, who treats inmates there with little to no respect. An incident at Georgia State Prison due to poor, inadequate security:

Security Flaps

A. People Involved:

1. Inmate Jacobian Irby- GDC# 879460 (HI-MAX)
2. Officer Sauls (male)
3. Officer Lane (male)\
4. Officer Hardy (female)

B. Officer Lane performed a strip search of Inmate Jacobian Irby before Inmate Jacobian Irby was permitted and/ or/allowed to go to the Yard. However, Officer Lane’s strip search of Inmate Jacobian Irby was non-effective either from an scanty, ineffective strip search or it was permissible that Inmate Jacobian Irby was allowed and/or permitted to retain a weapon on his person once allowed on the Yard.

C. Officer Hardy and Officer Sauls escorted Inmate Gregory Rakestrau; however, Officer Hardy left Officer Sauls and Inmate Gregory Rakestrau and reenter the building leaving Officer Sauls to escort Inmate Gregory Rakestrau; alone, without a two man escort as indicated in policies and procedures of the Georgia Correctional protocol.

D. Officer Sauls; on his own, escorted Inmate Gregory Rakestrau on the Yard and; in addition, Inmate Gregory Rakestrau was handcuffed and restrained from the back and during this time Inmate Gregory Rakestrau was assaulted by Inmate Jacobian Irby- GDC# 879460.

E. Inmate Jacobian Irby- GDC# 879460 assaulted Inmate Gregory Rakestrau GDC# 1087674 severely cutting Inmate Gregory Rakestrau on his right arm, below his inner elbow, which Inmate Gregory Rakestrau received 21 stitches, severe nerve damage and mental anguish.

F. Individuals that Inmate Jacobian Irby- GDC# 879460 has Assaulted:

1. Officer Matthew Brown
2. Officer J. Hubbard
3. Officer Gilbert
4. Inmate Robert Dennis
5. Inmate Nathaniel Williamson

G. Georgia State Prison failed to act responsibly by not providing a safe environment due to Security Flaps on the doors of the Yard not being installed. Because of inadequate security procedures; Inmate Gregory Rakestrau GDC# 1087674 was severely assaulted by Inmate Jacobian Irby- GDC# 879460 on May 3rd, 2007 by cutting Inmate Gregory Rakestrau as evident by Inmate Gregory Rakestrau’s twenty-one stitches, severe nerve damage and mental anguish.

H. Upon Inmate Gregory Rakestrau severe injury, Georgia State Prison Officials installed Security Flaps on May 4th, 2007, which were installed after Inmate Gregory Rakestrau was assaulted by Inmate Jacobian Irby- GDC# 879460 on May 3rd, 2007.

I. Due to neglect as indicated by an inadequate, improper and an unsafe secure environment as evident by disregard of Security Flaps that the Georgia State Prison Georgia and their Officials did not provide in liaison with Correctional Department due to non-compliances of Georgia Correctional Department and Georgia State Prison policies and procedures.

That's terrible, Ms. Rakestrau. I'm sorry to hear about the improper security within that prison. I sincerely hope Greg is doing better. Please send him my love. He was truly on one my best friends back in the day. I think about him and pray for him. Take care.

I know you all want to be sorry for this person, Gregory, who was cut and had to get 21 stitches! The person he stabbed 9 times and killed wasn't able to get 21 stitches or see his 21st birthday!!!

It seems to me that Drendell Willis is in the best possible place for himself and others. He's at peace, and the others are now safe.

As for this Gregory person,it seems he reaping what he sowed.(Oh, well.)

My prayers for the Jenkins family.

Adrian has not been forgotten or his family. Always remember; we never knows what obstacles one may face in life. Pray that it never happen to your family because you never know what life may challenge anyone with.

Greg and Adrian were my boys (WE WERE BEST FRIENDS). When I heard of the killing, I was like naw…cant be. We had pool parties/lazer tag/putt putt parties all the time. I hate that “us 3” can’t drink a beer on the back porch and laugh on all the fun times as a kids and BEST FRIENDS!

Damn!

Why is he in prison jacobian is my family he's a criminal thats why he's there i guess your son didnt commit any crimes he was incorrectly placed there"lol" please snatch your tits out of his mouth let him be a man pay for his crimes suffer like he made his victim suffer. Prison isn't a daycare guards will not babysit your 👦 ok. So do yourself a favor and get off this site embarrassing yourself mourn for his victims not him.
