How Many More Days Justice 4 Davontae Sanford 2016 Time For Change Bring Me Home Enough Is Enough !

How Many More Days Justice 4 Davontae Sanford 2016 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

POLICE BRUTALITY - Florida Cop Beats Up Handcuffed Female Strip Club Worker

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The 31-year-old woman shown on video being struck multiple times by a rookie Jacksonville police officer while awaiting booking into jail spoke to News4Jax from the hospital, saying she was "extremely mortified by the whole thing." On Thursday, Akinyemi Borisade, 26, was arrested on a charge of battery and fired by the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office. Police also released the video showing Borisade hitting Mayra Martinez Wednesday afternoon while she was handcuffed just outside the jail. Sheriff Mike Williams said the jail surveillance video was key to making a quick determination of the facts, and the additional video that surfaced is also being reviewed. "We made our decision based on what we saw on the jail video and, obviously, that first video gives me a lot of concerns, as well," Williams said. "There is an investigation going on now surrounding the first video." What Williams called the first video, with a Wednesday time stamp, appears to be shot by a dashboard camera in a parking lot in front of Scores, an adult club on University Boulevard at Philips Highway. That's the same day and location where Martinez was arrested.and charged with trespassing and resisting police. Martinez texted photos to the I-TEAM -- including one that was taken just outside Scores, where she was starting a new job. According to the police report, they were called to the bar to escort her from the property because she was drunk and belligerent after quitting work on her first day. "I am a yoga teacher. I utilize the bar industry to help me make ends meet, and I want and need that known," Martinez texted. "I am extremely mortified by the whole thing, and especially the type of person I'm being made to look." News4Jax crime and safety analyst Gil Smith, a former JSO officer, reviewed the dashcam video. "As the camera comes closer to the two police officers, they already have her on the ground," Smith said. "They said that she's biting them, but I really can't tell that from the video because the video's not great quality. And that's one thing about video, you're not always going to get the full picture. He mentions that she's fighting, that's she's biting, and he says, 'We have to strike her in the back several times,' and that's consistent with the report." According to the arrest report, Martinez continued to kick and fight in the patrol car and was placed in more restraints, the report said. She resisted their efforts to handcuff her and tried to kick and bite the officers, the report said. While waiting to be booked into the jail, Martinez can be seen on the video kicking Borisade in the leg, and Borisade retaliates by hitting her several times. Corrections officers who witnessed the incident reported it to their supervisors, and the JSO Integrity Unit investigated it. In the jail video released by the JSO, the corrections officers stand and watch before one steps forward and puts his hand on Borisade. Undersheriff Pat Ivey said that because Borisade is a probationary officer, he can't appeal his firing, but he can ask for a name-clearing hearing with JSO. If he passes that he would regain the ability to be an officer with another agency. This is not Borisade's first brush with the law. In 2008, when he was 19 years old, reports show he took items into a dressing room from a store at the Regency Square Mall and came out without them and tried to leave the store without paying. The report shows he admitted to doing it. He later pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor property crime. According to JSO's website, officers can't have been convicted of any felony, or misdemeanors involving false statement, perjury or domestic violence. http://www.news4jax.com/news/local/ja...

Benefit sanctions handed out to thousands of people ‘unlawful’ | SocialAction2015 | Scoop.it
Sanctions imposed on thousands of benefit claimants for not taking part in the DWP’s so-called “back-to-work” schemes are unlawful, a court has ruled. 

Three Court of Appeal judges upheld an earlier decision by the High Court, potentially paving the way for millions in refunds to people who had their incomes cut while they were unemployed.

After a previous Supreme Court judgment ruled some sanctions unlawful the Government passed a new law to make them legal.

Bill to Limit Juvenile Solitary Confinement Advances in Colorado House

Bill to Limit Juvenile Solitary Confinement Advances in Colorado House | SocialAction2015 | Scoop.it
DENVER - The state Legislature is considering a bill to limit the use of solitary confinement as a punishment for Colorado's youths. Despite a 1999 law banning seclusion, independent investigations have shown the Colorado Department of Youth Corrections has repeatedly put juveniles in isolation for days and weeks at a time. Elise Logemann, executive director of the Colorado Juvenile Defender Center, said two separate investigations found the state's Department of Youth Corrections had repeatedly held kids in small rooms with only a metal bed frame, toilet and sink.

US police under fire for racial messages, emails

 Police in Los Angeles and San Francisco have come under fire after authorities uncovered racist text messages and emails. Three officers in San Francisco have already left the police department after the messages were discovered and a fourth is facing disciplinary measures. In the communications, minorities were referred to as "barbarians and wild animals". Also, the text messages used the N-word to refer to black people, and described Arabs as "rag heads." In Los Angeles, the county sheriff's chief of staff, Tom Angel, has also come under the spotlight for emails he forwarded in 2012 and 2013 mocking Muslims, blacks, Latinos and women. Angel at the time was a top police official in the city of Burbank, near Los Angeles. The US police is already accused of racial profiling and indiscriminate targeting of blacks.
