The Innocence Tour begins 1st May 2015 
http://thesavoryfiles.org/#/tour/4569563453

The innocence bus tour was a vision of Johnnie Lee Savory as part of his, and many others, commitment and efforts to end the plague of wrongful convictions. Wrongful convictions have been experienced by many of our nation’s people without regard to race, age, or gender and is a result of a number of factors including false accusations, false confessions, eyewitness misidentification, ineffective assistance of counsel, and the most common cause, revealed in a recent study by the Better Government Association and the Center on Wrongful Convictions, alleged government error and misconduct by police, prosecutors, and forensic officials.

Innocent people the world over are being falsely accused, unjustly convicted, and sentenced to nightmarish imprisonment for crimes they did not commit. The cries of the innocent echo in the wind; no longer can we as a people turn a deaf ear we must not deny love, truth, or justice to one another. As the innocence bus tour journeys across America and to Canada let these two blessed and great nations serve as righteous examples to humanity

The innocent bus tour will highlight and profile cases of wrongful convictions while advocating for the innocent in the following ways: Recognizing the vital relationship between social support and reintegration, we will serve as a vehicle to connect the innocent with community resources; insisting that DNA testing is made available to persons who claim innocence, particularly, those facing lengthy sentences; demanding the innocent be set free, fully restored to his or her rightful citizenship, and given Immediate compensation for the wrongs that were committed against him or her. Additionally, we seek to end prosecutorial misconduct immunity and hold accountable our elected appointed officials who have sworn before God and man to protect the administration of justice by adhering to the spiritual word in which he or she places his or her hand, obeying the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights.


Truth must go forward unhindered, human rights must be protected, and the captive must be set free.

The vision of the innocence bus tour is reunited communities and a healed nation where justice truly prevails and innocence is coveted.

Darren Rainey Homicide Exposed by Harold and Windy Hempstead

Darren Rainey Homicide Exposed by Harold and Windy Hempstead | SocialAction2014 | Scoop.it
HUMAN RIGHTS FOR PRISONERS MARCH, hosted by Mary Neal, email MaryLovesJustice@gmail.com Call-in number (347) 857-3293. December 21, 2014 Guest: Windy Hempstead The world was shocked to read about the wrongful death of Darren Rainey in Dade Correctional Institution in Florida. Rainey died two years ago when correctional officers dragged him into a shower and scaled him to death. Our guest, Windy Hemstead, received an urgent phone call about the murder from her brother, Harold, a prison orderly. She reported Rainey's murder to law enforcement. Two years later, Windy reported Rainey's death to the Miami Herald, because no corrective action was taken by the justice system, and she feared for her brother as a whistle blower. The Miami Herald published a series of articles about Rainey's death and other abuses to mentally ill inmates in Florida, including "Behind Bars, a Brutal and Unexplained Death" http://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/community/miami-dade/article1964620.htmlhttp://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/community/miami-dade/article1964620.html George C. Mallinckrodt, who ws a mental health worker at the prison, published a book: "Getting Away with Murder" http://georgemallinckrodt.com/getting_away_with_murder.htm To date, Rainey's death has not be pronounced a homicide, according to Windy Hempstead. Justice is delayed. Power concedes nothing without a demand; it never has, and it never will. ~Frederick Douglass
