Not the post we wanted to be making, but on July 7th after his communication restrictions expired SIS (special investigation services) from FCI Englewood gave him word that they were renewing the expired restrictions.

Like the last two blocks this one comes without much explanation other than a general statement about how his communication might pose a threat to the institution and to the public.
