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 ! | SocialAction2014 | 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

MY ‘TEMPORARY’ HOUSING IS NOT FIT TO LIVE IN 27/6/2016

Boundary House in Welwyn Garden City, which houses around 45 families, has become one property where Waltham Forest houses residents temporarily because it says there are no homes in the borough available. Although supposed to be temporary, people can end up in these 'temporary' properties for years. The property is owned by Thule Investments Ltd, that rents the homes to the council, while residents say that repairs are not done and the condition of the premises is left in a hazardous condition, putting their families’ health at risk. Residents visit Waltham Forest Housing offices to outline their concerns in an attempt to get the council to get the owners to address the issues. They manage to get a meeting with John Knight (Director of Housing at Waltham Forest council), whether this resolves problems for the families remains to be seen.

Arizona opens summer camp for kids...in jail

It’s called Sheriff Arpaio’s Camp Summer Stars. There’s one in June and one in July. It lasts for two days. The point of it, according to the Sheriff, is to teach kids the realities of jail life in an effort to scare them straight. While they’re at the camp, the kids will be treated just like any inmate. They’ll have to wear inmate clothing. They’ll sleep in jail bunks. They’ll eat jail food. They’ll do jail labor jobs. They’ll get the full-on experience of what it’s like to be in jail.

Wisconsin DOC is force feeding prisoners who are on hunger strike to end solitary confinement

by Ben Turk - June 24, 2016 We have confirmed that at least two of the perhaps dozens of prisoners who have been refusing food since the week of June 10 are being force fed by Wisconsin Department of Corrections officials. Using a practice which has been condemned by the American Medical Association (AMA) and the Red Cross as a form of torture and “never ethically acceptable,” Wisconsin DOC personnel have been forcing a feeding tube through the nose and down the throat of their restrained and struggling captives three times a day since last weekend.

PTSD-June 27 is National Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Day in the United States

I have known thousands of inmates to be released from prisons all across this country. Many that have been wrongfully convicted return to a decaying society where that rules and laws have changed. Many suffer from oppressive laws and are denied employment and other benefits not because they were guilty, but because they were innocent and were subject to inhumane conditions for many decades. Many cannot adjust to crowds, many are re-victimized through society's deceit, others within the community search out ways to gain from their harsh plights.

Racism On The Rise In UK After Brexit

Since the UK voted to leave the EU, there has been a sharp spike in racist incidents. The attacks are centered around foreign born individuals such as an attack on a Polish Social and Cultural Association. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. “After Thursday's referendum on a "Brexit," a wave of racist incidents have been reported to British police and documented in widely shared social media posts. Through the weekend, #Postrefracism has been trending, and its contents provide a disheartening view of how Britain's vote to leave the European Union may be emboldening those who harbor virulent racist sentiments. Police in west London were investigating what they called a "racially motivated" attack against the Polish Social and Cultural Association. Poles make up the largest foreign-born population in the United Kingdom. The organization's building was apparently defaced with graffiti that said, "Go home." In Cambridgeshire, leaflets were apparently distributed with “Leave the EU/No more Polish vermin” written in both English and Polish.” Read more here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/w...

Interview with Kathy Seymour, mother of a mentally ill young man held 3 yrs in Sheriff Joe's cruel Maricopa Jail without a trial. Call to listen at Human Rights Demand channel (347)857-3293. Leonard Moreno was arrested at age 15 and has been in SOLITARY CONFINEMENT for 3 years to force a confession. Email Len's mother, at JusticeforLen@gmail(dot)com >> You can also hear the interview at https://fccdl.in/Brlzw0E8b by calling (605)562-0029, code 992.212.650, reference no. 62.

No child should be arrested and held on a $1M cash bond in an adult facility and tortured in solitary 23/7 for three years until he is an adult before giving him a trial. These are crimes against humanity that are common regarding mentally ill Americans, especially blacks and Latinos.

Wisconsin force-feeding solitary inmates to end hunger strike

The Department of Corrections is force-feeding at least three inmates currently on a hunger strike in protest of long-term solitary confinement that can last up to decades in the state of Wisconsin. The strike, dubbed “Dying to Live,” seeks to shine a light on the one hundred WI inmates currently held in solitary, a practice the United Nations has called a form of torture. For more on this, RT America’s Simone Del Rosario is joined by former inmate of seven years Talib Akbar, who was placed in solitary more than ten times.

Bone of their Bone: Torture and Ill-Treatment by Palestinian Security Forces

On the occasion of International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, Addameer calls for an end to all practices by the Palestinian Authority that amount to torture and other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment. In 2014, the Palestinian government signed and ratified several international conventions on the protection of human rights, including the Convention Against Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment (CAT). Thus, the Palestinian Authority became responsible for fulfilling its obligations under the convention by taking “effective legislative, administrative, judicial or other measures to prevent acts of torture in any territory under its jurisdiction” in accordance with the Convention.[1]
