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
'Young people deserve to have life, not just the existence of life but actual life,' says Tyrone Williams, who in 1996 became the first 15-year-old in Milwaukee County waived into adult court. He served 16 1/2 years behind bars for armed robbery before he was paroled in 2012.

Jadakiss and Styles P are bonafide hip-hop heavyweights whose careers have spanned three decades, but their legacies may be solidified by something other than their music.
Through their chain of juice bars, Juices For Life, The LOX members are looking to provide a much-needed place for people in low-income neighborhoods to consume something good for them. These neighborhoods are often referred to as “food deserts,” since access to nutritional food is virtually nonexistent.
Styles P said, "In the poorer communities, mostly, the money gets invested in liquor stores and the kind of things we don’t need."
Jadakiss and Styles P are leading by example and looking to put an end to food deserts through their Juices For Life locations, but they aren’t alone.
Jeff Brown, the founder and CEO of Brown’s Super Stores, a chain of grocery stores that offers high quality and nutritional food at affordable prices, said, "What Jadakiss and Styles P are doing, they’re successful, and they don’t need to be concerned about society... They’re deciding to use their success to make a difference for people. I think if we all did that, we’d fix a lot of our country’s problems."
With its three locations, Juices For Life is giving people unprecedented access to nutritional options in the Bronx and Yonkers, New York, with hopes of expanding in the near future.

After being jailed for four months after reportedly stealing $5 worth of snacks, Jamycheal Mitchell was found dead in his prison cell, possibly because he starved to death, according to family members. Mitchell was deemed unfit to stand trial due to his bipolar disorder, and was supposed to have transferred to a mental health facility, but never was. Four months after his arrival, he died of what his aunt claims is a 90 pound weight loss. RT’s Anya Parampil has more details.
The department for work and pensions’ (DWP) Work Capability Assessments aren’t fit for purpose and should be scrapped in their current form, Unite urged today as shock figures revealed over 4,000 people died within six weeks of declared ‘fit for work’ by private health professionals paid by the department. The figures released by Iain Duncan …
Just in the last day, two more horrific incidents have occupied headlines. One concerned the bodies of ’70 migrants’ found in an abandoned lorry near the Austrian border. The decomposing state of the bodies suggest that they had been dead for one to two days, the police have said, suggesting that the victims must have already been dead when the lorry crossed into Austria (a country swaying ever more to the Far Right).
Almost simultaneously, hundreds of people are now feared dead in the latest ‘Libya sinkings’, after two boats carrying up to 500 migrants have just capsized off the Libyan city of Zuwara. This is in addition to the well-over-a-thousand who’ve already drowned at sea just in this year.
Let’s establish a quick fact: the overwhelming majority of these people aren’t ‘economic migrants’ – they’re refugees. An example of ‘economic migrants’ are the scores and scores of Europeans who emigrated en-masse to America a few centuries ago and displaced the native population. Another example of ‘economic migrants’ are the scores and scores of Europeans who emigrated en-masse to Australia and New Zealand and displaced and persecuted the native populations. Another example of ‘economic migrants’ are the scores of European who emigrated to South-Africa and Rhodesia and subjugated the native populations for generations. Those are all classic examples of ‘economic migrants’.
Just days before a death row inmate's scheduled execution, Susan Sarandon makes an impassioned plea on Monday's episode of Dr. Phil to save the life of Richard Glossip, who has been on Oklahoma's death
Apparently we're going to hear much more about "illegals" from the GOP campaign, and among their rote talking points will be how harmful such immigrant are for the U.S. economy and workers. Standing against such nonsense is not only the humane thing to do, however, but the factual thing to say as well.
As he rode home on a Greyhound bus earlier this year, 19-year-old Dennis Rodriguez swore he had learned his lesson. He would do whatever he could, he said, to stay out of prison and to steer clear of the gangs that had a tight grip on his Chicago neighborhood.
When the city was preparing for the auto show last year, officials took notice of a large group of homeless people who were spending winter in a cluster of tents near Downtown Detroit. The attention and funding that resulted allowed homeless outreach workers to move in, earn the trust of the group and get them into real homes.
