The Innocence Tour begins 1st May 2015

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.

A message from Mark Duggan's family to Mike Brown's -


61 people were arrested in Ferguson after unrest erupted on the streets following a Grand Jury decision not to indict Darren Wilson, a white officer who shot an unarmed black teenager Michael Brown to death.
But it's not just an American problem. Violent riots followed a killing of a black man in the UK's Tottemham in 2011. 29-year old Mark Duggan was shot dead by a police officer in the chest. Police say he was suspected of planning an attack as he was in possession of a handgun. But the time he was shot Duggan was unarmed. And his family calls it an execution.
We spoke to Duggan's aunt Claire and she sent her deepest condolences to the family on Michael Brown and Ferguson.

Riot as the Language of the Unheard: Ferguson Protests Set to Continue In Fight For Racial Justice - YouTube


http://democracynow.org - "It is not enough for me to stand before you tonight and condemn riots. It would be morally irresponsible for me to do that without, at the same time, condemning the contingent, intolerable conditions that exist in our society. These conditions are the things that cause individuals to feel that they have no other alternative than to engage in violent rebellions to get attention. And I must say tonight that a riot is the language of the unheard." Those were the words of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. in March 1968, weeks before he was assassinated. Today parts of Ferguson are still burning after a night of protests following the grand jury’s decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson, who killed Michael Brown. At least a dozen shops in the Ferguson area have been broken into and burned. A number of businesses burned for hours before firefighters arrived. We speak to Rev. Osagyefo Sekou of the Fellowship of Reconciliation and Jelani Cobb, director of the Africana Studies Institute at the University of Connecticut and a contributor to the New Yorker. "For over 100 days [the protesters in Ferguson] have been primarily nonviolent in their approach to this," Sekou says. "They gave the system a chance, and the system broke their heart."

Shahreen Rahman's curator insight, November 25, 11:06 AM

This article speaks about how our society is moving forward with applying consequences with spousal abuse. In England now they have a law to acknowledge the psychological part of the abuse. It says in the article that "Men who exercise “coercive control” over their partners by restricting their personal or financial freedom, or through overt criticism could face up to 14 years in jail". Having this law helps the other spouse have more freedom as well as a better emotional state. The new law will also alter the definition of domestic violence, adding psychological abuse along with physical abuse.

Educate Not Just Incarcerate -


Just saying "NO" is not the answer... Arkansas CURE
Says “YES” to rehabilitation for those who have erred


Join Us… To provide information on criminal justice through education and advocacy. Pick a state....any state, except Arkansas. When it comes to rehabilitation, treatment programming and 21st. Century prison reform, Arkansas is trailing too far behind.

Costing a mother over $8.00 a call to hear the voice of her son. Prisoners are assigned to the hoe squad when they enter an Arkansas prison…just as in the past and still called rehabilitation in 2014?

Most States have Prison Work Programs providing commercial job skills and overseen by civilian supervisors. Inmate education is proven to be the most effective program at reducing recidivism... Schools not jails.
