Bloody Beaumont Leday

On Sunday, May 1, 2022, at approximately 10:30 a.m., staff responded to an altercation among two inmates at the United States Penitentiary (USP) Beaumont in Beaumont, Texas. Responding staff immediately secured the area. Inmate Erick Jermaine Leday was transported to a local hospital for life-threatening injuries and was subsequently pronounced deceased by hospital staff. A second inmate was medically assessed and treated for minor injuries at the facility.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation was notified. No staff or other inmates were injured and at no time was the public in danger.

Mr. Leday was a 35-year-old male who was sentenced in the Northern District of Texas to a 37-month sentence for Receipt of Firearms While Under Felony Indictment. He had been in custody at USP Beaumont since February 4, 2021.

U.S. Rep. Randy Weber inserted himself into the news story to get some relevance by sending a letter to BOP Director Michael Carvajal. In the letter he basically talks about a bunch of generalizations that aim to make his letter relevant, he discusses “understaffing”, aside from that he basically repeats over and over again, what HE is doing for the BOP, in his “efforts”.

This is despite the fact that the director himself has said that BOP understaffing is not as bad as everyone thinks. Guess ol’randy missed that, in his ‘tireless efforts. Seems Like Randy forgot Michael Carvajal was a BOP employee and not a judge by is dubbing him “The Honorable”. Something that is extremely misplaced, especially for someone who is supposed to be ensuring the BOP starts actually complying with laws, and starts not allowing their employees to rape inmates, and bring in drugs.
