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

Shining a Light on Solitary Confinement | ACLU of Ohio

Shining a Light on Solitary Confinement | ACLU of Ohio | SocialAction2015 | Scoop.it
Alone. Locked in a cage. Only the dim fluorescent light and concrete walls to keep you company. Here you will sit all day, every day. Once or twice each day, you are moved from that cage to another cage and then right back to the first cage. It is hard to move, so your muscles atrophy. Soon you begin to feel like your brain has atrophied too. Time loses all meaning and your mind begins to play tricks on you. Will you ever be free?

“HOM£SICK” EVICTING PEOPLE

During 2015 almost 150 families were evicted from the 'Sweets Way' estate in Barnet, north London. Children being displaced with their parents, relatives and guardians. Losing contact with friends, school-mates and support services as they are forcefully moved to different boroughs, or even out of London altogether, traveling miles in order to continue going to their jobs, or schools in Barnet. For many the upheaval and distress continues in 2016. This is a snapshot of the initial consequences on people of what is 'Gentrification' and 'Social Cleansing', where those with very little are treated contemptibly by those who only wish to acquire more then they will ever need. Many of the families on the Sweets Way estate were accommodating previously homeless families, while they waited for more permanent housing. They were on Barnet councils waiting list, but housed in the properties by a housing association. Terra Firma (the multi-billion-pound investment house) acquired Annington, which is to demolish the estate and is one of the largest owners of residential property, and owned by Guy Hands, one of Britain’s top private equity investors and tax exile. Tory minister William Hague was the best man at Guy Hands wedding.

New York rally for slain Akai Gurley

Read more here: http://www.presstv.com/Detail/2016/05... New Yorkers have held a rally against a court decision to acquit a police officer accused of killing unarmed black man, Akai Gurley in 2014. Demonstrators in Brooklyn protested the ruling by Supreme Court Justice Denny Chun. They also chanted slogans against District Attorney Kenneth Thompson who recommended the officer serves no prison time. Former NYPD police officer Peter Liang gunned down Gurley in the stairwell of a housing project in September 2014. At least two protesters were reportedly arrested during the Justice for Akai rally. A series of police killing of African Americans has sparked civil unrest across the U-S and opened debates about existing racial discrimination within the ranks of police.
