Local Garner Activist Patrick O’Neill Reports to Federal Prison, by Margaret Damghani, The Garner News, Jan.13, 2021

During his most recent stint in jail in Woodbine, Georgia, the result of actions he will soon report to prison for, longtime Garner resident Patrick O’Neill threw parties for the men on his cell block.

He remembers saving up peanut butter, tuna packets, jelly, crackers and powdered drink mix, and enlisting the help of two friends he’d made in jail to set up the food and drinks. He took a piece of tape he found in an old book to hang up a flyer, inviting the entire cell block, making sure to include the guards so that it wasn’t torn down as contraband.
