UPDATES

Hello,

We have a few things to share......

We are working on a brand new website for information about Paul and his case, www.justiceforpaul.org 

We've also set up a crowdfunding site to help with Paul's legal expenses. It will be greatly appreciated if you could donate and/or share the link. You can also send money directly to Paul through his JPAY account.

This blog now has a Facebook page.

Thank you so much for your continued support of Paul through this long battle!

-Friends of Paul

  1. Howdy just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren't loading properly.
    I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I've tried it in two different browsers and both show the same results.

    1. Please go to Paul's Facebook group page called Justice for Paul Modrowski. Lets all get together and help bring attention to Paul and his injustice so he will be freed.

  3. Excellent, his entire conviction ordeal reads as a “how not to run a criminal justice system”, I’m Canadian, we rarely lock up the innocent, if we do they are properly compensated, and we never, EVER lock up the retarted!

  5. I done heard he is going to get transferred federal to some place called a communications management unit for all the shit he done posted on this blog.

    1. This is false. Even if it were true, why would they transfer him now when he hasn't posted anything in 2 years?

  6. Can he receive CD'S OR DVD'S?

    1. No, only cassettes from IDOC approved sellers.

  7. No I heard the same thing it’s true. Marion is where theys sending him

    1. There is nothing to this alleged rumor.

    2. Marion is a federal prison. Paul is in a state prison. Troll.

  8. Ya’ll can believe whatever you want but they is shipping him out to a CMU. They going to tone him out is what they call it. My brother works at Marion and he seen the transfer paperwork that’s pending.

    1. Impossible. Paul was not convicted of a federal crime. So he can't go to a federal prison. Troll.

      Delete
    2. While I dont believe the rumors, to be fair, state can transfer a prisoner to federal for various reasons. People have been transferred between different states prisons if theres a justification. Its not common but its not impossible either

    3. Drew Petersen got transferred out of state. Maybe because he's a high profile criminal.

      Delete
    4. Drew Peterson was sent to federal prison because he kept trying to have people killed.

    5. I think people who are thinking Paul is being transferred are looking at someone else...it seems they moved one of the murderers of the Brown Chicken restaurant massacre, hopefully people are not still getting Paul confused with them....

      Delete
  9. It’s not a rumor. They are transferring him to Marion CMU. Someone might might want to give him a heads up so he can at least be somewhat mentally prepared. Better that than they just show up at his cell with a “let’s go” order. Apparently he has really gotten under the skin of the Illinois Department of Corrections. Poor Paul...

    1. There is still nothing to this rumor. He's still at Stateville.

  10. At least it’ll be quieter for him at Marion with his autism disorder. Plus cleaner and safer and better food. And better heating and cooling. And no cellmate!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I agree! I think after Stateville that Marion CMU will be like a blessed vacation for Paul. Treatment of prisoners is SO much better in federal custody plus safety and security is way better. I think CMU + Paul’s autism = 🙏🙏🙏

    1. The accommodations may be nicer but he'd be far away from family and friends.

  12. I read where the Marion CMU has its own basketball court too. Does Paul play basketball? If not I wonder if he’d like to. I’ll bet he’d be pretty good at it! He’s a big athlete in prison there at Stateville.

    1. He doesn't play basketball but he does a lot of other working out.

  13. Marion also has an inmate bowling alley plus an indoor hockey court. I wonder if Paul might be interested in trying that out? Blowing wouldn’t be too hard on his back.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Bowling balls could be used as weapons though.

  14. For everyone who supports Paul, please comment on his Facebook page for support. Also, any posts like the post above can be monitored before it is allowed to be posted.....

    ReplyDelete
  15. Marion also has LOTS better food. Plus, if an inmate is having muscoskeletal issues they can qualify for long term medical massage therapy as needed for pain relief. I think Paul with his messed up back could probably qualify.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Please post Paul’s new mailing address here when he is transferred to his new prison so we can correspond w him and also send him money on J Pal.

    1. If Paul is transferred which is unlikely we will.
      His JPay would be the same link though

  17. How about some more god damned updates.

  18. I’ll bet Paul is getting tired locked up in Stateville. That place has to wear you down and wear you out. Each decade behind bars has to be like having another heavy anvil placed on your soul.

    ReplyDelete
  19. OMG it has too. 😢 he’s already been locked up for like as long as he was alive on the outside plus 7 years or something. Like 25 years I think. In a little cage! How horrible is that. And he could be in there for many more decades. We’ve got to get him out!

  20. I wrote President Trump a 27 page letter two months ago asking him to pardon Paul. I got a letter back saying the White House appreciated my correspondence and that they were going to review it!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That's very kind of you but as far as I know the White House cannot do anything about Paul as he wasn't wasn't convicted of a federal crime.

      Writing to Governor Bruce Rauner is the better as he can pardon Paul.

      Delete
    2. I cc’d him on the letter too! They said they appreciated it also!

      Delete
    3. 27 pages? You have got to realize they don't read it!

      Send that letter to some news outlets instead. A shorter letter.

  21. There is no website. It’s just a blank page.

  23. I’ve really enjoyed reading about what it’s like to live in that Stateville rat cage for humans where Paul has been trapped for decades and where he will likely die one day if we don’t get him out.

  39. I've read your blog. Paul,you are probably one of the smartest people in the IDOC. If not the smartest! But you are also a smart ass and you seem to look down on....well look down on anyone who isn't YOU.

    I am impressed with your endurance and your accomplishments and I am aware that you do not give a flip whether or not anyone LIKES YOU. But I think your "I am so intelligent" tone really turns a lot of people off and detracts from your cause. I know you are autistic and probably don't show much emotion. And you have a right to be angry because frankly your situation sucks. But can you please try to do random acts of kindness daily....when you take breaks from writing your new appeal....because I am sure you do not sit and write appeal for 16 hours a day? I don't mean you should turn into a happy-go-lucky, but try to have respect for others because they are human beings. Even though some of your neighbors are the lowest of the low. I wish you peace and success.

  46. Admins: Please let me know if you need any assistance with getting content up on the new website. I'm a writer. I can show bylines. Don't have tons of spare time, but I'll help out wherever and whenever I can, if needed.

    Also, are you aware that there's tons and tons of spam comments on this blog now? If this continues, Google will eventually penalize Paul's blog by displaying it lower in the search results (as they do for all spammy sites, because their algorithms assume spam = low quality content). I'd hate for this blog to be shoved into the irrelevant wilderness. It won't help Paul's cause any. Call me idealistic, but I think the more attention he gets, the better his odds are of getting out.

    Paul: Stay up. Don't lose hope. I know that doesn't mean anything to you anymore, but the internet/social media can move mountains, so becoming more active online will only help your cause. I know it's easy for me to say that; you've been in prison for literally as long as I've been alive. But I hope you won't give up on getting out, because it can work. The funny thing about facts is that they're true whether people believe them or not, and your release is hinged upon our collective ability to prove the fact of your innocence to the right people. That means you have to get their attention first. The internet is your out. Stay with it. You'd be surprised how many people are willing to help.

  47. Paul would definitely benefit from atleast giving an occasional update. Ive been reading since the beginning and still check up on the blogs in hope he will atleast say hello and give an update. Im even more of a liberal person who disagrees with him in most categories but one I do agree is the dysfunctional legal system. He needs more awareness, since he stopped wroting interest has remained but hasnt grown. The more people who point out the failings of the system, especially from the inside, the better.

    Im sure there is a plan already made that I am not privvy too, and the focus is on release of Paul, but even if hes never released this doesnt have to be a waste. Waking people up to corruption, is the only way to combat it. Going silent cause hes grumpy that hes still in prison is like a kid taking his ball and going home. His words hold weight, and he realizes that enough that it makes the extra effort worth it.
