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

Anti-Vaccine Parents Found Guilty In Death Of Their Toddler

A couple in Canada has been found guilty of allowing their son to die of a treatable disease. The boy was infected with bacterial meningitis, and they attempted to treat him with smoothies. Ana Kasparian and Brett Erlich, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. “An Alberta couple has been found guilty of failing to provide their son with the necessaries of life, four years after he died of bacterial meningitis. The parents, whose preference for natural remedies over traditional medicine is said to have caused the child's death, could spend up to five years in jail. David and Collet Stephan were charged a year after their 19-month old son Ezekiel died in March, 2012. The six-week trial concluded on Monday, with the jury, who were instructed by the judge not to make their decisions based on "sympathy, prejudice or fear," wrapping up deliberations in Lethbridge, Alberta in just two days. The Stephans will be back in court on June 13, when a date will be set for their sentencing.” Read more here: https://news.vice.com/article/these-a...

Our fight is your fight because we want all of life to be free from the restricting confines of this system that causes so much pain and suffering. We feel the tide is turning in the right direction every time we see groups of people working together for the common good of all living beings. The power is in the people and the people have to realize this and use this power to free life, protect life. Life is the force that keep us alive. Stay strong and we’re doing the same.

Campaign launched against UK media censorship

Britain's Labour party has announced an independent review into racism amid mounting pressure over alleged anti-Semitism in the party. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the party is no place for racism and pledged to make sure the party is a welcoming home to members of all minority communities. Corbyn’s decision follows the suspension of his close ally and former London Mayor Ken Livingstone. He had denounced the suspension of another Labour MP Naz Shah over her alleged anti-Semitic comments. Corbyn is now under immense pressure ahead of sensitive local elections seen as litmus tests for his leadership. Pro-Palestinian Corbyn was elected party leader by grassroots supporters in September despite strong opposition from many MPs. The timing of the anti-Semitism row has raised suspicions of an internal power struggle against the opposition leader.
