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

Please ShareVictims of the actions of Iain Duncan Smith. DWP. ATOS and the ConDemnation. Over 10,600 people have died. Yet not many know about these deaths. Since then the figures for deaths are kept a secret and they are refusing Freedom of Information RequestsThe people of Woodford Green and Chingford do not know the deaths caused by their MP, Iain Duncan Smith.This is the result of privatisation. Labour brought in ATOS and the ConDems encouraged them to corporate man slaughter.The same as Major’s government brought in PFI and Blair/ Brown went ballistic with the idea and gave the NHS a £350 billion Odious Debt.We will keep updating the memes with data and can use all the help we can get.http://blacktrianglecampaign.org/…/uk-welfare-reform-death…/MP report finds benefit sanctions are starving and killing the jobless, even as a Cabinet man laughs at them over drinks at black tie do.

Solitary Confinement and Wrongful Deaths Under Color of Law 03/28/15 - Acklin

Solitary Confinement and Wrongful Deaths Under Color of Law 03/28/15 - Acklin | SocialAction2014 | Scoop.it
Today we discuss SOLITARY CONFINEMENT and WRONGFUL DEATHS at at BlogTalkRadio at 3pmEST on Saturday, March 28. Call (818)572-2947. Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill (AIMI) has advocated for mentally ill Americans for ten years. Mary Neal's mentally, physically disabled brother, Larry Neal, was secretly arrested and murdered in 2003, and we did not learn that it is usual, ordinary and INTENTIONAL to use mentally ill people for prison profits or kill them until 2006. That is when Mary Neal founded AIMI. Please visit us at Facebook, Google+, and Care2. See also our blog "Dog Justice for Mentally Ill" at http://DogJusticeforMentallyIll.blogspot.com . At Twitter, we use @koffietime. AIMI's advocacy experiences opposition because mentally ill people comprise over half the nation's 2.3 million inmates, and prison investors in government seem to use the nation's surveillance technology and personnel to censor the advocacy. But we are moving the fight out of their hands and taking this issue to International Court this year to win damages for up to 100 impacted families. We find it impossible to abolish slavery from within. Google "AIMI vs. USA" for more information about the International Court lawsuit to win damages for neglected, brutalized, and killed Americans who have/had mental illness. Persons who have drug/alcohol addictions and the homeless are included. Please sign and share our petition called "AIMI v. USA" at http://www.thepetitionsite.com/713/784/918/aimi-v-usa/
