It is no secret that CDCr’s counterintelligence units have been plotting revenge on the class members of Ashker v. Brown to have us returned to indefinite solitary confinement. Therefore, it is reasonable to conclude that it wasn’t a matter of coincidence, as we embark upon the first anniversary of Brotha Hugo “Yogi Bear” Pinell's assassination, that the media began leaking fraudulent reports to the public generated by IGI, ISU, OCS and the FBI about the BGF plotting to avenge the death of Hugo Pinell.
Downtown Chicago is prospering. Property values are rising, Summer concerts and festivals have brought in more people and helped the economy. But there is another side to the city - where there's poverty, despair and danger from gangs and, residents say, from police. And that's the part of town where most of Chicago's black residents live. Just on Saturday night alone, three people were killed and over a dozen wounded in drive by shootings.
i Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy has decided, at long last, that maybe, perhaps, she should take a second look at parole for Richard “White Boy Rick” Wershe, Jr. who is serving a life prison term for a non-violent drug conviction when he was a teenager. Wershe is no ordinary doper. He was a secret teen informant for the FBI, and he told on some very politically connected people who were profiting from the Detroit drug trade. Worthy has fought ferociously to keep Wershe in prison even though opinions among many in law enforcement and the general public, have changed about Wershe. What did she say about parole for Wershe and what’s next?on

Prosecutor Says Might Be OK With Release of 'White Boy Rick'
The Wayne County prosecutor might reverse her opposition to the release of a Detroit-area drug dealer nicknamed "White Boy Rick," who has been in prison for 28 years for crimes when he was a teen. Kym Worthy says her office is reviewing the case of Richard Wershe (WER'-she), who is serving a life sentence with occasional opportunities for parole.

Civil rights groups filed a federal lawsuit on Tuesday accusing a small Arkansas city of running what they said amounted to a modern day debtors prison. A local court imposed inordinate fees on the poor and jailed them if they did not pay. The groups include the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law and the American Civil Liberties Union. They say the city of Sherwood, with a population of about 30,000 people, generated some $12 million over the past five years through the system.
