NOTES FROM THE INSULATOR.
The stuffy crude cellar with the walls covered with a rough building fur coat is a chamber №9 temporary detention facilities. The chamber most part is occupied with a wooden scaffold высотою to a belt, here and all conditions, short of a tank with a sewage in a corner and roughnesses on walls, on which arrested persons were accustomed to hang up clothes. To a scaffold there is a little a free space where it is possible to go from a wall to a wall - «тусоваться». But to do it it is better not quickly - a cellar of the deaf person and is breathed here difficultly.
When the weak fan is switched off, prisoners start to move more slowly, lay down and fall asleep as fish in small тазике.
Meanwhile, to stop smokers there is no possibility. When to smoke begin simultaneously the person eight, it is necessary to lay down simply on a back and to wait.
Smells in the chamber are not present - neither the smell of dirty bodies, nor onions smell, a tank smell - anything is not present it. Smells appear only during walk - once a week on an hour. The daylight hurts the eyes and stirs up from fresh air.
Day and night in the chamber the weak-sighted bulb in which light dark blue it seems black, and yellow - white burns. Behind a door the small receiver, or as here speak, "knot" constantly shouts. It include to muffle all sounds behind a chamber door. The time sense is lost definitively. Somehow time the security guard declared lifting at two o'clock before usual - anybody and has not noticed.
In a toilet deduce once a day early in the morning. It is heavy, but in due course get used. The tank in the chamber is not counted, it does not suffice even for other needs. If a tank already full, it is necessary to take advantage of a polyethylene package or a plastic bottle.
The toilet represents a number, excuse, параш where arrested persons take seat on three under shouts of security guards. Here there is always an overflowed garbage box. The same premise serves as a bath - in a corner there is a shower connected to a usual household boiler. It is not enough on nine persons, besides it is necessary to have time to shave and wash clothes because the following bath will be only in a week. In footwear to take a shower it is impossible, it is necessary to undress and pass barefoot on a dirty tile by параш, and as back.
I will dare to notice, that in such conditions criminals, and people temporarily detained for a consequence on which place there can be any person contain not - to get under suspicion enough. But also condemned so to contain it is impossible - them punish imprisonment, instead of deprivation of health and not humiliation of personal advantage.
The chamber №2 less than the ninth, approximately 2 on 2,5 metres. There it is easier to breathe, but it is impossible «тусоваться» - pass absolutely narrow and it is filled up by things. The wooden scaffold (plank beds) шириною only metre ones and a half and when there exhaust on five persons to sleep it to fall to a side, and feet are groundless. Anything if so it is necessary to spend some days and if some months? There are five square metres on a five - in a coffin and that is more spacious.
Department temporary detention facility on struggle against the organised crime (ГУБОПа) on Боюканах about which I tell, the worst place is far not. In regional temporary detention facilities, say, in Strashensky, is much worse: louses, bugs, an itch, and humidity such, that the clothes become wet. And all insulators are for some reason located in vaults - mushrooms there, whether that, were going to grow up?
To me it is ridiculous, when I hear, that the state does not have money on ИВС. That it is necessary to punch some ventilating apertures - after all in insulator corridors normal fresh air. No, the reason in other. HERE ALL is arranged SO THAT suit MENTALITY of the ARRESTED PERSON.
Watch - it is impossible. Chess - only from bread. A paper and the handle - it is impossible, though the law stipulates the right to conduct record. What it is impossible? You never can tell. All "is impossible" arrested persons learn from security guards, rules nobody saw. And well them to publish, if, of course, they exist.
It is interesting, that in prison (СИЗО) and in zones (ИТК) condemned allow to use knifes, and in ИВС with a serious kind tell, that a core from a ball pen - a pricking subject.
To kill the person, enough a concrete floor. To open to itself veins it is possible also teeth - there would be a desire. For this purpose it is not obligatory to be the strong, strong-willed person, is more often it is done by the people driven to despair. Half a year back in the chamber №3 arrested person was hung up on bandage.
I, probably, will not open the big secret if I will tell, that women under investigation beat. Seriously beat not everything, but also such which would not beat absolutely - neither the inspector, nor operas, at detention - too it is not a lot of.
The torture most popular today - blows on heels a rubber bludgeon. I read about such way in books on ancient history of China earlier, and here it was necessary to see - shapeless, not getting into footwear, yellow-lilac heels. Their owner has told to me, that has not noticed, how обмочился during this procedure.
Tortures by a current from the transformer or field army phone, suffocation by a gas mask, blows to the head through the book are still popular. Suspension for hands and for feet sometimes practises. It name "swallow" or "breakage". But for it "justice" - management of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and police commissariats more is famous.
From time to time "masks-shows" break into the chamber with terrible shouts. Beating all without analysis, they throw out prisoners in a corridor, strip naked and induce to do some knee-bends. Then dump on a floor poor rags of prisoners and leave. It is difficult to tell that - whether search imitation, whether the intimidation action, whether desire to be kneaded.
Masks during tortures and night representations is a convention. Arrested persons easily learn the оперов. To and protection well knows, whom it has let in. Clearly, that tortures and beatings occur from heads permission, differently would be to pass once enough on offices and to collect there so much gas masks that would suffice for doctrines on a civil defence.
From those whom beat seriously, units are silent. I, anyway, such did not see. To some happens to show enough how break their companion. An opera said to me, that in a similar situation they would give at once any evidences, and then already would think, how them to disorganise. It is not known, that is worse - to become the cripple either to give evidences. Or to become the cripple and to give evidences.
Today as never many frank recognitions. The experienced criminals who have made grave crimes, suddenly start to repent, as the guilty schoolboys. And it does not surprise anybody - neither judges, nor public prosecutor's workers. And indicators раскрываемости the remarkable. «A recognition - the tsarina of proofs» as used to say unforgettable Vyshinsky.
As the journalist, I can not open the sources but if it is interesting to someone, I am ready to name names and the facts.
To me the case, when the arrested person who пытали, has demanded the lawyer, the public prosecutor and medical examination is known. Медэксперта to it have given for the third day. Operas which has brought it for examination, has talked over with the doctor. As a result, despite entreaties of the arrested person, the doctor has examined his head, and the swelled feet to look did not become.
The public prosecutor on supervision does detour ИВС about once a week. If the arrested person looks absolutely badly for the period of detour an opera take away it from the chamber on interrogation. If looks tolerably, the public prosecutor very much tries to notice nothing - work such. Beginners still try to complain, but those who sits for a long time, address on insignificant questions - a bath, walk.
Relations between сокамерниками marvellously the soft. I even would tell, precautionary. Anyway, outwardly. In an insulator it is a lot of people casual or got here for the first time. They would be quite logical for releasing on the security, or under a subscription about невыезде, but they sit months. In this case nobody saves the state money.
Moral condition of arrested persons heavy enough - I never saw so much crying adult men. Isolation is very serious test. Inspectors meaningly do not pass the information on the family. One of prisoners did not know some months, how there has passed childbirth at his wife and as named its child - the lawyer whom to it have given free of charge, supported its isolation. Many are on the verge of despair. Oppresses idiocy of existence in four walls, as if someone big has put you in a corner and has forgotten for some months. Visit conditions such: «Mum, take away me from here, I any more will not be».
Those whom beat, it is possible to learn unmistakably on the badgered sight and how they shudder at a sound of an opening door. After a release at them the attack эйфорической pleasures begins - today to beat any more will not be.
It is possible to concern somehow it, but it is necessary to realise, that today tortures, a beating, intimidations are the basic way of inquiry. That, generally speaking, is a criminal offence. And it occurs, as at us like to speak, in the centre of Europe, in first half of XXI-st century.
An opera consider, that with criminals it is necessary to address so, and in any way differently. Like to result examples of the wild crimes opened thanks to rigid methods of investigation. But it is a little wild crimes, and chambers are overflowed. Also it would be desirable to think, that crimes were really made by the one who admitted. As is known, two casual people have been shot for Andrey Chikatilo's crimes, and the third has had time to stay eight years. And there are no such policemen who would beat only bad, and good released.
At some оперов messianic bents are looked through - they consider themselves called to manage justice, to dispose of destinies. A little, however, guards, that they so strongly own феней, that are at a loss to pass to usual language. Are proud of that thanking their work and methods the shaft of criminality of 95-97 years has come to naught. It is necessary to understand, nevertheless, that it is more dangerous - the crimes made by police or криминалом.
The police is necessary, it is indisputable, but we should speak and about what it. Worst of all, that there are no real mechanisms of restraint of police brutality. Alfred Hitchcock has told: «I not against police, I simply am afraid of it».
The cruelty position in relation to криминалу could have any sense, if not total corruption of system. And differently it only a way to bid up. In chambers only and conversations, that about money - the inspector has demanded so much, the lawyer - so much, is better to give to the public prosecutor and the judge, than the inspector, the appeal will cost more expensively, than court, and so on, and so forth. Pay attention to the cars parked to department, to courts, to Offices of Public Prosecutor. If to understand, an opera - puppets hands of the people who are on higher steps of structure, they manage the dirtiest, bloody work, and in this sense they too a victim of system.
Cruelty and bribability are two parties of our justice.
