Federal judge accuses state of ethical lapses in prison case - The Sacramento Bee

Federal judge accuses state of ethical lapses in prison case - The Sacramento Bee | Educating & Enforcing Human Rights For We The People !! | Scoop.it
In a high-stakes bid to wrest control of California's prison system from federal oversight, opposing lawyers for the state and for 33,000 inmates sparred Wednesday over whether the state violated legal ethics by interviewing mentally ill prisoners...
Doingtime2's insight:

The lawyers describe the sessions as being conducted in secret despite the legal requirement that they be present for all those tours and interviews.

"They interviewed our mentally ill clients without our knowledge about the case and then they used the evidence (to buttress their claims that conditions in the prisons have improved)," Don Specter, head of the Prison Law Office, told reporters after the hearing.

"They didn't really explain to the mentally ill clients what the purpose of the interviews were, so the inmates had no idea who they were speaking to, they had no idea for the reason."

Those interviews and the 50 expert declarations based on them that were filed with the court by the state now are at the heart of a heated dispute over whether California has made enough progress in improving access to mental health care at a constitutional level inside its prisons.

The inmate attorneys want the declarations thrown out, a move that would cripple the state's efforts in court to rid its self of the 23-year-old class action.

Police Chief Says Dylann Roof Was Taken to Burger King Shortly After Arrest

Police Chief Says Dylann Roof Was Taken to Burger King Shortly After Arrest | Educating & Enforcing Human Rights For We The People !! | Scoop.it
Doingtime2's insight:

According to the account Shelby police chief Jeff Ledford gave the Charlotte Observer, Roof complained of hunger, and was treated to a meal at Burger King.

Earlier in the day, Roof had bought water and chips at a south Charlotte gas station. Now he was hungry. Police bought him food from a nearby Burger King, Ledford said.

After slaughtering 9 people in a church, Roof was arrested, strapped with a protective bulletproof vest, then treated to burgers and fries.

If only these cops had handled Freddie Gray. Or would the series of events have been different?

LAPD Just Shot Unarmed Man For Holding A Towel

LAPD Just Shot Unarmed Man For Holding A Towel | Educating & Enforcing Human Rights For We The People !! | Scoop.it
The Los Angeles Police Department has confirmed that one of their officers just shot a Los Feliz man for holding a towel.

The victim of the police shooting
Doingtime2's insight:

*****DEMONIC POSSESSED Police are still defending the shooting.
LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith, claimed that the shooter “followed standard procedure” by handcuffing the man after shooting him in the head.

“We always do that,” Smith justified. “That’s the policy… to handcuff someone in a situation like that.”

The man’s name has not been released.

An eyewitness filmed a video of the officers handcuffing the man who had a visible gunshot wound to the head.Police say they had no choice but to open fire after the man raised his arm, which was wrapped in a towel, in a way that officers said made them “fear for for their lives.”

The LAPD media spokesperson claimed that the officers “believed he had a gun,” but as it turned out, he was completely unarmed… Unless a towel now counts as a weapon in the eyes of the police.

The man had actually asked the officers for help around 6:35 p.m. He was at the corner of Los Feliz Boulevard and Tica Drive south of Griffith Park, from what the police report states.

“This person extended an arm wrapped in a towel. The officer exited the vehicle and said, ‘Drop the gun, drop the gun,'” LAPD Lieutenant John Jenal defended.

The man was likely confused, since he didn’t have a gun to drop. He very well could have thought there was another person who the police were talking to who actually had a gun. In any event, he was told to drop a gun – a gun that he did not have, so he therefore could not drop it. http://countercurrentnews.com/2015/06/man-with-towel-wrapped-arm-lapd/

Juneteenth Mexico's Black Pres. Ended Slavery Fought Texas & Aided Enslaved

Juneteenth Mexico's Black Pres. Ended Slavery Fought Texas & Aided Enslaved | Educating & Enforcing Human Rights For We The People !! | Scoop.it
Vicente Guerrero, Mexico's first black president Texas President Sam Houston lamented that " two valuable negro boys for which I had paid in cash $2100 previous to my visit to Nashville, ran away last spring to Mexico. Thus you can see I am in bad luck." Just two and a half months after Mexico abolished slavery, officials were uneasy about the numbers of new Americans settling within Mexico and they attempted to curb the number of newcomers. In 1830, Mexico decreed that foreigners could not cross the border without obtaining a passport issued by Mexican agents.Texans did not respect the MEXICAN border in their pursuits of Freed Blacks. In 1855, Captain James Callahan of the Texas Rangers entered Mexico in an attempt to recapture self-emancipated Africans. Callahan insisted that the purpose of his excursion was to pursue Indians rather than recapture fugitive slaves. The Mexican government with the help of Native Americans, however, forced him to retreat and withdraw without any Freed Blacks. Consequently, Mexico remained a place of amnesty. Thousands of self emancipated Africans lived in Mexico by 1850. Just two and a half months after Mexico abolished Finding the Mexican government uncooperative, Texas slaveowners took measures to stop escapes as well as to reclaim runaways. In 1850, they pressured the federal government to set up border patrols but with few troops assigned to patrol this vast frontier, this was not very successful. Slaveowners also offered rewards of $200-$600 for the recapturing of fugitives. Frederick Douglass - "For my part, I would not care if, tomorrow, I should hear of the death of every man who engaged in that bloody war in Mexico, and that every man had met the fate he went there to perpetrate upon unoffending Mexicans...There are three millions of slaves in this land, I should welcome the intelligence tomorrow, should it come!
