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

A Just Cause - American Prisons - A Traveled Road of No Return

A Just Cause - American Prisons - A Traveled Road of No Return | SocialAction2015 | Scoop.it
Lamont Banks, Cliff Stewart, and Lisa Stewart 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. Lamont, Cliff, and Lisa will highlight ongoing struggles against "the system" to free wrongfully imprisoned people, and what happens when justice miscarries against an actually innocent person. Tonight our Hosts will be addressing, 'American Prisons' and how they are a traveled road of no return! 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.

Melissa Williams, Timothy Russel Murder and Stalking - YouTube

I made a new videotape of my censorship to show the text hackers redacted (through strike-through) on my post about the unarmed black couple Brelo and other police killed does not appear as redacted text on my edit screen. http://youtu.be/KKrUQr77gxE >> It appears that hackers redacted my text through the strike-through feature. I don't know how my G+ post appears on other people's computers, because hackers are capable of engineering IP-specific views. Thank you for Screencastify, Google, which allows me to upload videos showing my censorship right away to +YouTube. Sometimes it takes lots of espionage to upload films from my digital camera to YouTube. I am followed when I leave home, and hackers take over whatever computers I use in libraries or at friends' houses. Therefore, we now have hundreds of videos proving my censorship and proving that I am followed. We plan to upload the videos at +CreateSpace and sell them to the public, because (a) I am financially persecuted and need funds, and (b) funds would help with our advocacy to decriminalize mental illness in the USA (where sick people are used as prison commodities). I hope that the world will be interested in my censorship and intimidation as a family member of a black mental patient who was killed after 18 days of secret arrest in the Memphis Shelby County Jail in Tennessee, USA, and as director of Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill (AIMI). It should interest the +United Nations and others to learn how families are treated when we object to police violence against Americans with mental disabilities, like Melissa Williams and my murdered brother, Larry Neal. Please see more information at the "Wrongful Death of Larry Neal.com" website (url below) and in over 1,000 online articles.

Nettie Larson's comment, May 28, 8:09 PM
While homelessness is a problem to be solved, it should be solved for those that are homeless, not for those that dislike looking at homeless people in public areas. I think that sometimes people start seeing homeless people as less than human, which definitely shouldn't be the case. While the police were acting on complaints from some citizens, the police have a duty to serve all of the community, and the homeless are some of the neediest members of the community.
Rob Duke's comment, May 29, 4:45 AM
Nettie, Yes, and this is a good example of the Paradox of Proximity. Cops are too close (rightly so) to victims, but also to the elected officials and those who influence the elected. As a result, we (I'm retired, but still use the "royal" we) tend to enforce the desires of those who most closely direct us and who control the resources we crave. So, when Anonymous claims that we're lap dogs, there's some truth to this. Instead, I'd advocate a policy where we encourage those with whom we interact to come to Council/Burrough/Board of Supervisor meetings and engage their elected officials on matters that interest them. At least everyone gets a say and we don't then appear to be playing favorites on the one hand, nor insubordinate on the other.
Rob Duke's comment, May 29, 4:47 AM
p.s. You'll soon be reading William Ker Muir's (aka "Sandy Muir") work about the police officer as street corner politician. Sandy identified nearly a dozen Paradoxes of Power and I have humbly added a few more. Unfortunately, we lost "Sandy", professor emeritus at Berkeley, in February. It's a real loss to our profession that he died so young.
