This could have been any one of us, or any one of our children who was falsely arrested, railroaded, and imprisioned. If we let this stand, who will be next?

Why it's so hard to get off welfare


Since 1996, in order to get welfare in the U.S., you have to work. The Clinton Welfare-to-Work program successfully got millions of families off the social safety net program. But today's recipients face stagnant low wages and limited resources for job training, making it nearly impossible for many to gain economic mobility. Economics correspondent Paul Solman reports.

Attorney General Eric Holder: Investigate the 2012 death of Mr. Darren Rainey, a mentally ill Florida prisoner who died after prison guards locked him into a 180-degree shower.

Attorney General Eric Holder: Investigate the 2012 death of Mr. Darren Rainey, a mentally ill Florida prisoner who died after prison guards locked him into a 180-degree shower. | SocialAction2014 | Scoop.it
On June 23, 2012 Darren Rainey , a 50-year-old mentally ill state prison inmate in Miami-Dade County, died after guards responded to his defecating in his cell by locking him into a 180-degree shower for two hours—at which point his skin was separating from his body. Local police, and the state, failed to properly investigate. The case was only brought to light in recent months by The Miami Herald. After two years, no one has been held criminally accountable, or even charged.
Darren was serving a two-year sentence for drug possession and housed in a psychiatric unit. After his death, guards forced another prisoner, Mark Joiner, to clean up the shower where Darren died, including chunks of skin.
"He was crying, please stop, please stop, Joiner said. And they just said "Enjoy your shower, and left."
Only the U.S. Department of Justice can properly investigate this terrible crime, and a broader culture of abuse in Florida’s prisons that has led to other unnecessary deaths, and which falls especially hard on the mentally ill.

Chicago’s police torture can’t be atoned for so easily – lawyer

Flint Taylor, a lawyer for many victims demanding reparations, says that while the move by Mayor Rahm Emmanuel and the city is a good start, injustices remain. He speaks with Manila Chan about the planned reparations and what his clients truly need.

A Just Cause Coast 2 Coast - Abuse of Disabled Inmates in U.S. Prisons | SocialAction2014 | Scoop.it
Lamont Banks, Lisa Stewart and Wayne Wright of the Colorado exoneration firm A Just Cause, discuss what happens when the wheels of justice trample unbridled over the rights of innocent Americans. Although the American system of justice is the most-respected worldwide, it is still a system designed, and operated, by humans, which means it's not perfect. Our Special Guests for tonight's show is Maurice Chammah, Staff Writer for The Marshall Project and Steven Wetstein, Advocate for the Stop Prison Abuse Now (SPAN) advocay group. Both of our guests will be addressing the abuse of disable inmates in our U.S. prisons. A Just Cause is currently campaigning for "FreeTheIRP6," who's been wrongly imprisoned in Florence, CO for a crime they didn't commit. Read full story: www.freetheirp6.org.
