DEMARQUS D SENNET
v.
ST MARTIN PARISH CORRECTIONAL FACILITY ET AL

         SEC P

          UNASSIGNED DISTRICT JUDGE

          REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION

          PATRICK J. HANNA UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE

         Pro se plaintiff, DeMarqus D. Sennet, proceeding in forma pauperis, filed the instant complaint on September 1, 2017, pursuant to 42 U.S.C. §1983. His complaint alleges constitutional violations against numerous defendants stemming from his incarceration at the St. Martin Parish Correctional Facility and the Jefferson County (Texas) Correctional Facility. This matter has been referred to the undersigned for review, report, and recommendation in accordance with the provisions of 28 U.S.C. § 636 and the standing orders of the Court.

         Background

         Plaintiff's original complaint [Rec. Doc. 6] and First Amended Complaint [Rec. Doc. 10] make various allegations against a copious amount of defendants in connection with his incarceration in both the St. Martin Parish Correctional Facility (SMPCF) and the Jefferson County (Texas) Correctional Facility (JCCF). He complains of poor conditions of confinement and medical care beginning in July 2015. A considerable part of plaintiff's complaint consists of allegations against the defendants similar to the following: Defendants put cleaning supplies in the water forcing him to drink out of toilet, put blood thinners and sleeping pills in his food causing gastric problems for life, tampered with his trays causing extreme weight loss, would prematurely hang up phone calls so he would burn money on calls, would allow kitchen inmates to play with his food, causing his stomach to severely bleed every time he defecated, deputies would give inmates razors to try to cause him serious bodily harm, deputies tried to get inmates to rape him in a cell without cameras, put laxatives in his food so he couldn't gain weight, withheld toothpaste after he would notice that they were tampered with, put cleaning supplies in his peanut butter, poison in his red beans and rice, implanted a chip in his face, got an inmate with an STD to try and give him an STD, posted fake images of him on Facebook, put blood in his water and food, threatened a maximum sentence to anyone who helped plaintiff, “set things up so Aryan Nation could brutally harm” him, and arranged it so that when he went to church, inmates would kill him with weapons that jail officials used.

         On January 9, 2018, the Court ordered plaintiff to amend his complaint to provide facts which support the conclusion that his constitutional rights were violated by each named defendant.

         Claims

         In his Amended Complaint [Rec. Doc. 12], plaintiff, narrowed his claims to incidents occurring during eight (8) specific time frames. The Court will address his claims as presented.

         1. July 3, 2015-September 9, 2015 September 9, 2015-November 12, 2015, January 7, 2016-May 11, 2016, and April 10, 2016-May 11, 2016

         Plaintiff alleges that while incarcerated at the SMPCF, he was jumped by two (2) inmates in July 2015, and that while being treated for his injuries, a chip was inserted into his face. He was then moved to Jefferson County Correctional Center and complains of multiple incidents that occurred at during his confinement at that facility and at SMPCF, through May 11, 2016.

         2. June 29, 2016-December 12, 2016

         Plaintiff asserts that during the time period between June 29, 2016, and December 12, 2016, he was served a tray of food by Anthony Baker and Seth Lagrange that “tasted like cleaning supplies.” After throwing the tray on the floor and asking for a new one, they put him in isolation.
