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.

OUR COMMON GROUND Omnibus's curator insight, November 26, 4:22 PM

The parallels between Marissa’s unjust prosecution/imprisonment & Mike Brown’s killing by law enforcement are evident to me. Yet, I am well aware that for too many these are treated as distinct and separate occurrences. They are not. In fact, the logic of anti-blackness and punishment connects both.
