The Innocence Tour begins 1st May 2015 | socialaction2014 | Scoop.it


The Innocence Tour begins 1st May 2015 
http://thesavoryfiles.org/#/tour/4569563453

The innocence bus tour was a vision of Johnnie Lee Savory as part of his, and many others, commitment and efforts to end the plague of wrongful convictions. Wrongful convictions have been experienced by many of our nation’s people without regard to race, age, or gender and is a result of a number of factors including false accusations, false confessions, eyewitness misidentification, ineffective assistance of counsel, and the most common cause, revealed in a recent study by the Better Government Association and the Center on Wrongful Convictions, alleged government error and misconduct by police, prosecutors, and forensic officials.

Innocent people the world over are being falsely accused, unjustly convicted, and sentenced to nightmarish imprisonment for crimes they did not commit. The cries of the innocent echo in the wind; no longer can we as a people turn a deaf ear we must not deny love, truth, or justice to one another. As the innocence bus tour journeys across America and to Canada let these two blessed and great nations serve as righteous examples to humanity

The innocent bus tour will highlight and profile cases of wrongful convictions while advocating for the innocent in the following ways: Recognizing the vital relationship between social support and reintegration, we will serve as a vehicle to connect the innocent with community resources; insisting that DNA testing is made available to persons who claim innocence, particularly, those facing lengthy sentences; demanding the innocent be set free, fully restored to his or her rightful citizenship, and given Immediate compensation for the wrongs that were committed against him or her. Additionally, we seek to end prosecutorial misconduct immunity and hold accountable our elected appointed officials who have sworn before God and man to protect the administration of justice by adhering to the spiritual word in which he or she places his or her hand, obeying the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights.


Truth must go forward unhindered, human rights must be protected, and the captive must be set free.

The vision of the innocence bus tour is reunited communities and a healed nation where justice truly prevails and innocence is coveted.

Human Rights Demand

Human Rights Demand | socialaction2014 | Scoop.it
Host: Mary Neal, director of Human Rights Demand. Please call 347.857.3293 to speak on air. Guest: Gina Burns, mother of Jeremy Smith. Jeremy goes on trial Monday in California for "making terrorist threats" to a corrections officer. Jeremy is a mentally ill inmate who was due to be released in December 2014. Therefore, prison investors seek to legally sanction his continued imprisonment. Many mentally ill people who were initially imprisoned for misdemeanors, like vagrancy, actually remain imprisoned for LIFE at great expense to taxpayers and tremendous distress to their families. Mentally ill people find it hard to understand and follow prison rules, making it easy to lengthen their sentences. The USA has 1.25 million mentally ill inmates. Over 60 percent of inmates in solitary confinement are mentally ill. Prison torture is common for mentally ill inmates, and their deaths in custody happen frequently. Sometimes deaths of mentally ill inmates are covered-up by jails, prisons, and government officials. Health discrimination is allowed, despite its tragic results.
