San Francisco sheriff's deputies, including one previously accused of forcing inmates to give him oral sex, forced prisoners to stage 'gladiator-style' fights under threat of violence, including rape. Deputies bet on these barbaric matches, and forced victims to refuse medical care and lie about their injuries. 
San Francisco Sheriff's deputies allegedly forced inmates at a county jail to engage in "gladiator-style" fights, betting on the outcomes and threatening violence, including rape, as punishment for prisoners who refused to participate.

There was a recent Criminal Minds episode based on this subject.

Christia Mercer's experiences and research have illustrated what many people (including Supreme Court Justices) is that inmates need education/job training to keep recidivism down.  If we spent as much money on education we would dramatically decrease the  inmates in the prisons.  Unfortunately most of the big money today is in corrections so the trend is to incarcerate as many as possible.  Without change while they are locked up nothing changes and inmates find themselves in the same situations they left in.  Education is the key.

#FARC-EP WONDERS: HOW TO BELIEVE IN JUSTICE?

Report from Havana, #Cuba - March 21, 2015

"Only a National Constituent Assembly can change the justice system"

In #Colombia there is a corruption scandal going on in the Constitutional Court regarding one of its judges, Jorge Pretelt. He is being accused of influence-peddling and his wife has to respond for possible crimes related to a land property, claimed by victims of paramilitary groups.

Introduce Yourself  - 
 
To many, the word incubation is either confusing when applied to racism or it has a double meaning making it necessary to explain the purpose of this message and define the path I am taking. To me, incubation is seen as a part of insight. A visionary but also a mentoring phenomenon.
The definition of insight in psychology is: "A sudden perception, awareness of a solution, a change or transformation from an unlearned to a learned state. Instinct A natural behavior or capacity," while incubation is interpreted, in psychology, as "A period of thinking about the problem, which may also include putting the problem aside for a time."
My piece is written out of the political aspect of prisons, not the mental health aspects of radicalization, racialization and incubation of racism within prisons. I am not sure if this message is clear enough for it to bring to the mind what I want to illustrate through a visionary message. I am just explaining dynamics to you about the fostering and feeding of the beast through neglect and inaction, which would be a natural incubator for hate and racism. I hope I am right on target with my message and make you think about how we can reduce the destruction of this beast, created inside prisons and begins in actuality in our schools. Just a thought.

New Haven Register: Connecticut Malta Justice Initiative working to end ‘mass incarceration.' By Ed Stannard. John S. Santa has been successful in the fuel oil and energy business, but his real passion is trying to reduce the population of non-violent offenders in the state’s correctional system and to help those who are released into a society that turns its back on ex-offenders.

Santa and the Rev. Marilyn B. Kendrix, associate pastor of Church of the Redeemer, United Church of Christ, met with the New Haven Register’s editorial board Tuesday as members of the Malta Justice Initiative, which is, among other things, supporting Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s “Second Chance Society” proposals to reduce the human and financial costs of the state’s criminal justice system.

Prisonist.org: The CT Reentry Entrepreneurial Course, By Barry Diamond- Reentry Survivor & Guest Blogger. Our friend Barry Diamond is the founder of ReentrySurvivors.com, a website publishing reentry stories and hosting information about the Connecticut Reentry Roundtables. - Jeff

My name is Barry Diamond & I am a released prisoner. Prior to prison I owned a business consulting company that taught companies how to work smarter not harder. For the past 2 ½ years, I have been teaching formerly incarcerated people how to get a job. I have discovered something very interesting. Some of them should not look for employment. The reason is that some of them should be self-employed. They have skills & walk to the beat of a different drummer.

When one’s entire world is reduced to such a finite space, I think it makes a certain kind of sense for a guy to rule his roost with such attention to detail. I admit I may be slightly biased in my assessment.
// // I wouldn’t say that I’m obsessively fastidious or overly neat, but I’ve noticed a trend amongst guys who have been incarcerated for many years

About this community

With five percent of the world's population, yet 25 percent of the world's prisoners, the United States has the highest incarceration rate in the world. With 2.2 million people currently in U.S. prisons and jails, our prison population has increased over 700% since 1970, a testament that our criminal justice system has failed on every front, underscoring the need for large scale reform. This community is a forum to learn, share and discuss anything at all relating to criminal justice, the prison industrial complex, human rights and the need for change.
 
This is (partially) about the reasons why the insurgency of the FARC-EP doesn't believe in transitional justice as proposed by the Colombian government. Thought it might be interesting to this community....

Resisting Unlawful Arrest

In podcast episode 063, I dive into the complicated dynamics of one unlawful arrest.

Clearly the defendant was -

* Intoxicated
* Beligerant to Police
* Hostile
* Uncooperative

And certainly the officer was -

* Investigating a domestic violence
* Concerned for a woman's safety
* Motivated to talk to the woman
* Denied access to the woman by the defendant

In the end though, we have an officer making an unlawful arrest. Mayhem then ensues. To find out more visit episode 063...

An unlawful arrest by police cannot legally be resisted by a citizen. That is just the law. Podcast Episode 063 takes a look at the complicated dynamics...

It is very likely that Texas executed an innocent man in 2004. Now the State Bar of Texas is filing a formal accusation of prosecutorial misconduct.
The State Bar of Texas has filed a formal accusation of misconduct against a former prosecutor who allegedly withheld crucial evidence that could have proven the innocence of a man who was executed for murdering his three daughters in 2004.

POLICE are POLICY enforcer they are REVENUE collector nothing else. 
A POST TO PONDER, THIS BY James Michael
POLICE are POLICY enforcer they are REVENUE collector nothing else. 
THEY do not work for us. The Supreme courts says .The POLICE has no Constitutional duty to protect us its a case people look it up.? There is NO Constitutional right for the POLICE to be armed while patrolling and policing the community.Moreover,other nations that are just as armed as us have POLICE FORCES that don't carry guns.The POLICE do not know what justice is. POLICE are trained to use deadly force and intimidation all the time. POLICE OFFICERS are CRIMINALS,and BULLIES.POLICE are trained to Harass, Entrap and encouraged to exhibit Severe Control and Dominance at all times. They do not know the Law. They do not know the Constitution, and they are number one violator of the Constitution. POLICY REVENUE POLICE are trained Liars Don't talk to them. They worked for the BAR British Accreditation Regency they are the Puppets of the BAR Lawyers this is where they get their counsel. Officially the POLICE are OFFICERS of the COURT just as lawyers are. COPS are on the streets to protect and serve the interests of the COURT of their JURISDICTION,and are not required to protect or serve any individual citizen at any particular time. Look it up? The local POLICE and PROSECUTORS are not in place to serve and protect the American public. Modern POLICE act as an Army of assistants for STATE PROSECUTORS and gather evidence solely with an eye towards the STATE'S INTERESTS. Most of these POLICE OFFICERS don't have a clue about how they have been indoctrinated and manipulated! They are so naive and well meaning that they actually believe they are preserving and protecting the public. POLICE OFFICERS is the Protector of the CORPORATIONS not your rights. POLICE are program to follow orders, they are slave in status. The Laws that they enforce are not our Law, and not the Constitution. They are against the Constitution. Ask what Laws are they enforcing and they will Tell you STATUTES ORDINANCE ACTS CODES this are not Laws but PRIVATE LAWS made by the CORPORATE LEGISLATURE and CONGRESS, these people are against our nation and our people. They worked for the UNITED STATES FOREIGN CORPORATION. This are the same people who puts us all in BANKRUPTCY and DEBTS. THIER JUDGES And PROSECUTOR are all AGENTS of this BAR. There is no justice in their COURTS people. You have no rights inside of their COURTS. That's why they all made up this rule, policy, codes so they can tax us all and jail us all and take away all our freedom very simple plans Destroy the people and you Destroy their nation. A Statute and Ordinance is Not a Law, It only gets the force of law with your consent, it applies to your persons, But not to you.Any OFFICER who quotes an Act of CONGRESS at you and Says that it's the Law is committing gross negligence amounting to Fraud. The JUDGES and PROSECUTORS and LAWYERS are their MASTERS these people controls them all they are higher evil. Ask them who do they work for? They will answer The STATE.What is a STATE? THE STATE OF SOUTH DAKOTA is a Sub-CORPORATION OPERATING IN COMMERCE FOR A PROFIT,And You and I are not the Stockholders. Remember folks all of these JUDGES,these people grow their retirement funds every time they convict someone. They are FRAUD and LIARS and TRAITORS and COMMUNIST. We did not create these people to be our Public servant never. We did not vote or elect POLICE. We the citizens did not create this POLICE. The Constitution did not create a CORPORATE STATE . The Constitution does not give authority for the creation of City Governments. City governments are CORPORATE franchisees of the UNITED STATES CORPORATION ,created under the LAWS of COMMERCE and their collecting fines in insurance script.They are governed by the rules of COMMERCE only which is ADMIRALTY/MARITIME JURISDICTION under the rules of UCC. This POLICE are so naive and dumb that they think they are upholding their Oath of office to protect our rights, NEVER. They are the protector of the crowns business property land and slaves. They are all communist and all liars. These are the same people who declared war against the citizens read the War Power Act Legislation which effectively makes Americans enemies of the U.S.Government Believe it or not its all there people. Their COURTS are EQUITY ,ADMINISTRATIVE ,ADMIRALTY and MILITARY TRIBUNAL VENUE JURISDICTION. This you can tell in their FLags inside of their court rooms. The yellow fringe with a spire on top of the eagle is a flag of war in other words martial law flag. This CORPORATION created DEBTS as our money. This CORPORATIONS OPERATE in LEGAL CONTRACTS and in ADMIRALTY JURISDICTION.They use LEGALESE you can see it in Blacks Law Dictionary. Once our Republic is back in the land this LEGISLATURE CONGRESS MAYOR SENATORS PRESIDENT JUDGES PROSECUTORS POLICE will all be prosecuted by our Republic because these people do not serve us all, They served the foreign country which is against us. The Grand Army of the Republic combined with the United Nation and our Military will combine together to prosecute and jail this Communist ,Nazi POLICE and their fellow British agents which are working inside of our government. All our Military are waking up now they all know now. The UN will come and disarmed this CORPORATE POLICE. Give it a little time people they will come for them. LETS OPEN OUR EYES,AND FREE OUR MIND.WAKE UP AMERICA.
