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

OP-ED: Civil Citations Are Smart Justice for Juveniles

OP-ED: Civil Citations Are Smart Justice for Juveniles | SocialAction2015 | Scoop.it
Research has shown that once a juvenile officially enters the criminal justice system he/she is not only more likely to re-enter it, but also less likely to finish school, go to college or become gainfully employed. How do we get and keep these young men and women on track for success?

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.

Too bad.  Housing rules prohibit criminal behavior, drug use, and gang membership, which greatly reduces (but doesn't eliminate) these behaviors.

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.

Juvenile Jails Adopting ACE- and Trauma-Informed Practices

Juvenile Jails Adopting ACE- and Trauma-Informed Practices | SocialAction2015 | Scoop.it
After decades of get-tough policies that often morphed delinquent youth into hardened criminals — i.e., further traumatizing already traumatized kids — state, local and private facilities are developing ACE- and trauma-informed training for staff and systems for their facilities. They realize that the time these post-traumatic youth spend under their roofs can be a time for healing — if it’s handled right.
