How Many More Days Justice 4 Davontae Sanford 2015 Time For Change Bring Me Home Enough Is Enough !

How Many More Days Justice 4 Davontae Sanford 2015 Time For Change Bring Me Home Enough Is Enough ! | SocialAction2015 | Scoop.it

Who is Davontae Sanford?

Who is Davontae Sanford? He is Detroit's Forgotten Child. Innocence raped in the grips of overzealous cops and a prosecutor who doesn't give a damn about justice or innocence. She wants Detroit to forget Davontae!! To ignore her great evil misdeeds and sweep the case under the carpet. And your silence has made it all possible Detroit. Until it happens to your child - of course. BUT she suffered a MAJOR defeat at the Michigan Court of Appeals when that court granted Davontae relief on every issue he raised but one; namely whether Private Investigator Linda Boris can testify as to the details of the murders that Vincent Smothers confided in her --as he has to CNN; the Associated Press; his attorney and last but not least to Detroit Homicide investigators. Davontae cross-appealed that issue at the Supreme court. Smothers wants to confess on the record to clear Davontae for the four murders he did not commit. What does Smothers have to gain by confessing to a crime that he knows will get him a mandatory life sentence? Nothing! But Kym Worthy has a lot to lose if he does. Millions of dollars in civil liability and her integrity (which isn't much) for WRONGFULLY convicting that young boy! And Detroit? You are okay with this? Well we can't wait for sleepers to wake up from a dream. Fortunately one appeals court made up of all conservative judges by the way ruled in Davontaes favor. The prosecutor appealed that decision to the Michigan Supreme Court where we are now in a,wait and see hold for the high court. I am cautiously optimistic however that given the fact the three judge panel who ruled in Davontaes favor were all conservatives the state high court which is majority conservative will deny Worthy's appeal. And then the ugly court battle will begin. She will NOT be able to stop Smothers from confessing on the record and convince the trial judge to sustain Davontaes convictions. There are many lawyers on both sides. Smothers will flip her case upside down and she knows it. Hence her reason for fighting to stop him. Treacherous and devious she is.Roberto Guzman

Lawmakers step up efforts to reduce solitary confinement

Lawmakers step up efforts to reduce solitary confinement | SocialAction2015 | Scoop.it
AUSTIN - After reducing the number of prison convicts in solitary confinement by nearly half in the past decade, Texas officials are now looking to cut the total even more by providing specialized treatment for offenders who have mental health issues. Under a new initiative that officials say has proven successful so far, the goal is to improve the offenders' mental health enough to return them to regular cellblocks instead of isolation cells known as "administrative segregation." The news, which comes as legislative leaders are pushing to get mentally ill prisoners out of county jails in an effort to reduce suicide risks and curb violence, signals a step forward to correct a problem that has plagued Texas prisons for decades. Jason Clark, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice that operates the state's 108 state jails and prisons, said the mental-health diversion initiative launched in June 2014, has successfully transferred 99 convicts back into the general population from administrative segregation. Critics of solitary confinement policies have complained for years that keeping prisoners isolated by themselves, sometimes for decades, can cause many to develop mental issues or anti-social behaviors that make them dangerous once they are freed from prison. "By overusing solitary confinement, (the Texas Department of Criminal Justice) increases crime, wastes taxpayer money, increases violence in prison and causes thousands of mentally ill people to further deteriorate before returning to Texas communities," the report said. Clark said his agency now has several programs in place to divert more convicts from solitary confinement, including one that gives prisoners a way to renounce their gang affiliation and another that diverts mentally ill convicts to a therapeutic program that provides education and rehabilitative program to help the transition to a regular prison or parole.
