Free Davontae Sanford Time For Change Bring Me Home Enough Is Enough !

The police know it. The prosecutors know it. The courts know it. Anybody who reads the court records and police reports knows it.
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?
Demand that the prosecutors stop covering up their frame-up of this innocent child and come clean. Demand that Davontae be freed to come home

NO JUSTICE FOR YOUNG DETROIT DAD TERRANCE KELLOM; WORTHY REFUSES TO PROSECUTE KILLER COP(S) AGAIN

NO JUSTICE FOR YOUNG DETROIT DAD TERRANCE KELLOM; WORTHY REFUSES TO PROSECUTE KILLER COP(S) AGAIN | SocialAction2015 | Scoop.it

If only this were an isolated case. Sadly, it is not. As with the cases of RIP Aiyana Mo’Nay Stanley-Jones. and RIP Adaisha Miller, Worthy did everything in her power to shield the police from accountability for the death of Terrance. Stand with us Friday as we assemble in the plaza outside the Frank Murphy Hall of Justice at 4pm. We’ll begin to delve into the evidence against Mitchell Quinn with a critical eye and let Kym Worthy know what we think of her performance.

A Just Cause - Executive Clemency

A Just Cause - Executive Clemency | SocialAction2015 | Scoop.it
Sam Thurman, Cliff Stewart, Lisa Stewart and Lamont Banks 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. Sam, Cliff, Lisa and Lamont will highlight ongoing struggles against "the system" to free wrongfully imprisoned people, and what happens when justice miscarries against an actually innocent person. 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. For more information, about A Just Cause and to Donate to the IRP6 legal defense fund, visit www.a-justcause.com.

Paragraph 1 repeated: 1.  Bernard Johnson was arrested during a bipolar crisis in Johnson City, Tennessee on June 24, 2015. He is interned in Washington County Detention Center and is warehoused in solitary confinement. His bail was set at $50,000 but was raised to $51,000 after more charges were added when Johnson allegedly broke a jailhouse window with a paper cup. Three women who love Johnson met with us at "Human Rights Demand" Blogtalkradio channel on August 22, 2015, to inform us about Johnson's dire circumstances as a mentally and physically sick inmate in solitary confinement who is denied visits. For some reason, that interview is not allowed to show in our lineup of shows at "Human Rights Demand." Let us hope that is not because Johnson has already been killed. Listen at the below url to "Bernard Johnson Dying in Jail" (I hope I exaggerate).
