Suit filed in Iberia Parish over Handcuffed Black man Mysteriously Shot to Death in back of White deputy’s car

Suit Alleges Black Man was Suicided by White Cop From [HERE] A Black woman has filed a wrongful-death suit in federal court against Iberia Parish Sheriff Louis Ackal (racist suspect in photo) and the deputy who arrested her child’s father, Victor White III, the night he died from a single gunshot wound to the right side of his chest while handcuffed in the backseat of the deputy’s car.

In a 15-page complaint filed Friday on behalf of White’s toddler, Shandell Bradley’s attorneys allege Ackal fails to adequately train his deputies and tolerates excessive uses of force and unreasonable searches, which resulted in White’s death a year ago on March 3, 2014.

The suit also claims Cpl. Justin Ortis, who arrested White that night, beat him and was negligent in failing to protect White’s safety while he was in custody.

White died in a Louisiana hospital, the victim of a gunshot that police said White fired after being frisked twice, handcuffed and placed in the back of a New Iberia police cruiser. That is, the white cops claim that while he was handcuffed in the backseat of the cruiser he shot himself with an undected handgun - magically like Houdini or David Copperfield.  

Cops: "Not on Our Property." The family of Victor White III held a rally on March 2, 2015 to commemorate the first anniversary of Victor's death. The Iberia Parish Sheriff's office heard about the planned rally and warned White's father that if they entered the Sheriff's property, they would be arrested.

Ortis arrested White, 22, while he and an unnamed friend were walking home from a convenience store where a fight had just occurred. According to the suit, Ortis stopped the two men shortly before midnight and searched White twice before arresting him for drug possession.

What happened after has been detailed only in a statement released by State Police the same date as White’s death.

“Once at the Sheriff’s Office, White became uncooperative and refused to exit the deputy’s patrol vehicle,” it reads. “As the deputy requested assistance from other deputies, White produced a handgun and fired one round striking himself in the back.”

In August, although the facts supported the determination of a homicide, the Iberia Parish coroner ruled White’s death a suicide, and State Police said the gun that fired the fatal bullet was not a type used by the Sheriff’s Office.

But the agency has not released additional details about its report, submitted in September to the 16th Judicial District Attorney’s Office. That agency stepped away from the case when the U.S. Justice Department began conducting its own review .

Federal Rangers say They Had to Kill D'Andre Berghardt b/c he had "Superhuman Strength" from Smoking Weed: Attorney says White Cops Murdered Black Man 

From [HERE] amd [MORE] It has been a little more than a year since 20-year-old Black man, D'Andre Berghardt was fatally shot by two white federal rangers in a confrontation as he walked along State Route 159 near the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area .

Investigators revealed new information on Monday at a Las Vegas "Fact Finding review hearing" about the events leading up to an officer-involved shooting. Fact-finding reviews are held when a police-involved shooting results in a death and after the Clark County district attorney's office decides officers will not face criminal charges. An ombudsman represented the public and the family of the victim. The district attorney's staff presented evidence and witnesses, but only for "information." 

New footage shown at the hearing and released to the media for the first time shows four different angles of the incident, including dash cam video.

Of course, the white district attorney, Steve Wolfson (racist suspect in photo) did not file any charges against any of the white cops. A wrongful death suit has been filed by Berghardt's mother, Tracy Meadows. The complaint claims that BLM rangers violated her son's constitutional rights. Her lawyer is Jacob Hafter.

Berghardt was reported to be disoriented and tried to stop a few bicyclists to ask for help. Multiple 911 calls were made to seek help for him, according to documents. Cops insisisted that they were investigating an assault claim. Bicyclists and joggers told reporters that Berghardt had been seen walking on the paved shoulder of the highway with a rolling suitcase, a backpack and a bedroll. [MORE]

The BLM rangers then approached Berghardt and eventually a confrontation ensued. The lawsuit states that the NHP officer did not see a justification for lethal force, but the rangers attacked the victim. The lawsuit says Berghardt was not trying to get a police rifle, but trying to escape the attack by the rangers.

Dash cam video, showing the final moments of Berghardt's life, was at the center of the hearing. Berghardt's mother watched the video for the first time as she sat in the audience.

Investigators said things turned violent when the BLM officers tried to question Berghardt, and he was uncooperative. According to hearing testimony, two BLM officers claim they tasered him four times after he refused to listen to commands. At one point they say he pulled a screwdriver out of his pocket, leading to the first taser being used. Cellphone video then shows a struggle, and the BLM ranger then delivered two rounds of charges from the taser, before Berghardt turned away and reportedly tried to get into several (police?) vehicles stopped on the road.

That's when an NHP trooper arrived on the scene with his dash cam rolling. That trooper used his taser to deliver two more electric charges, while one of the BLM officers hit Berghardt over the head five times with his baton. Police claim that he acted with superhuman strength but the toxicology report further revealed the only drug in Berghard's system was marijuana. [MORE]

At that point, investigators said Berghardt got into the NHP vehicle. The camera in the patrol vehicle shows what investigators say is Berghardt's hand on the barrel of the AR-15, followed seconds later by gunfire. Eight or nine shots can be heard.  Apparently, however, no cops actually saw him touch a gun. Berghardt Jr. was unarmed. The cops said they thought he was going to start the vehicle up and then run them over or get the rifle and shoot at them. 

The family's attorney, Jacob Hafter, called into question whether the use of force was justified, saying the officer's claims were false.

Detective Matthew Gillis of LVMPD relayed the officer's statement to the audience, saying, "He's thinking Berghardt is about to get control of the vehicle, he's about to get control of the firearm." 

Hafter said of that statement, "His [the officer's] own witness statement, that's part of the record, says he never saw Mr. Berghardt reach for the gun, he never saw the AR-15." Instead, Hafter says the two men who shot Berghardt had an intent to kill. "The BLM agents were overzealous, underexperienced, and they just wanted to get their pound of flesh in at the time," Hafter said.

Autopsy Contradicts Denver Police: White Cops who Fatally Shot Latino Teen in Car were in No Danger 

From [HERE] and [HERE] More than a month after her fatal shooting at the hands of Colorado police, an autopsy has revealed that 17-year-old Jessica Hernandez was shot four times, two of which were fatal.

The teenager’s death was also ruled a homicide, according to a medical examiner’s report released Friday. The examination, performed by Denver Chief Medical Examiner James Caruso, shows that two gunshot wounds were located in Hernandez’s pelvis and right thigh, possibly from the same bullet. Hernandez was also shot two times in the left side of her torso — the bullets pierced the heart and both lungs, killing her.

“There was no evidence of close range discharge of a firearm associated with any of the entrance wounds,” Caruso said in the report.

Two bullets entered through the left side of her chest and traveled right through her body. Her family's attorney, Qusair Mohamedbhai, said that shows she was shot from the driver's side of the car.

"These facts undermine Denver Police Department's claim that Jessie was driving at the officers as they shot her," Mohamedbhai said in a statement. "The wound path and trajectory of the bullet that likely killed Jessica Hernandez undermines the version of events as indicated by the Denver Police Department."

Denver police Chief Robert White has said the officers found Hernandez and four other teenagers inside the stolen car in an alley. White said the officers told the teens several times to get out of the vehicle. Officers Gabriel Jordan (racist suspect in photo from Westworld) and Daniel Greene fired after Hernandez drove toward one of them.

A passenger in the car, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because of safety concerns, has disputed the official account, saying officers came up on the car from behind and fired four times into the driver's-side window.

The passenger also said the officers did not yell any commands before they fired, and that the car may have struck the officer after Hernandez was shot and lost control of the vehicle.

East Point (GA.) Settles Wrongful Death Suit for $1 Million: Cops Tortured Handcuffed Black Man - Tasering him at Least 14 Times in Creek

From [HERE] and [MORE] Last week a $1 million settlement was reached in Georgia in a Taser death suit. The Black man who the civil lawsuit was filed on behalf of, Gregory Towns, died after East Point police shocked him with a Taser. His family's lawyers negotiated the settlement by taking East Point's insurance company to the city's policy limits, which is $1MM. East Point's city insurer settled the case, covering the city of East Point as well as the two officers involved. The case was settled for the full maximum available, resulting in a $1MM settlement for the victim's family.

The 24-year-old man died following an arrest in which the police used Taser devices on him up to 13 times, according to the wrongful-death suit against the Atlanta suburb of East Point and two of its former officers.

The family of Gregory L. Towns Jr., who was arrested on April 11 after he fled on foot from officers who wanted to question him about a domestic dispute, said in the lawsuit that police officers in East Point had “acted with malice and a deliberate intent to cause grievous bodily injury, pain and death” to Mr. Towns.

The lawsuit contended that officers abused and eventually killed a handcuffed Mr. Towns after his arrest by using Taser devices on him up to 13 times in a 29-minute period. Towns, who weighed over 300 lbs was exhausted after the foot chase by police. Nevertheless, cops insisted that quickly comply with their commands to quickly walk to a police cruiser after he was arrested and placed in handcuffs. Towns also did not have any pants on. It is not clear whether the cops took them off or not. 

The lawsuit charges that Weems and Eberhart violated the East Point police department’s stun gun policy, which says stun guns should not be used on anyone who is handcuffed, nor should be used to escort or prod someone, nor should be used on someone passively resisting police.

The episode began when the police wanted to speak with Mr. Towns about a domestic dispute and he tried to elude officers. The authorities apprehended Mr. Towns after a chase they said stretched nearly a mile, and Mr. Towns, saying the pursuit had exhausted him, said he was unable to walk immediately to a police car.

Keep Your Teddy Bears, Protest Signs, Flowers, Candles & T-Shirts b/c IT will Happen Again & Again in Racist System: White LAPD Cops Gun Down Homeless Black Man in Downtown L.A.

The LA “Safer Cities initiative" =  a Safer City for Whites and White Cop Immunity for Murdering Blacks. From [HERE] and [HERE] LAPD cops have shot and killed a homeless Black man during an altercation in central Los Angeles, in an incident caught on cell phone video. The graphic film shows a violent struggle between the man and several white officers in the city's Skid Row area. Two of the officers had body cameras - but that footage has not been released by the police. LAPD Police Chief Charlie Beck said there are also  "dozens, literally of stationary cameras at 5th and San Pedro [the location of the incident) and we are reviewing all of that video." [MORE[Don't hold your breath waiting for that in racist system. Bodycams and bodybags do not stop white supremacy/racism]. 

Cops claim that three officers opened fire after the man tried to grab a gun from an officer. Witnesses said the dead man was known as Africa and had been homeless after treatment for mental illness. The police refused to release info about his identity. 

The LA police department claimed officers had been responding to reports of a robbery and had attempted to use a Taser to subdue the suspect but he had "continued fighting and resisting". [MORE]

The fatal police shooting shines a harsh light on the downtown neighborhood that contains the highest concentration of homeless people in the US, and a controversial city program that was supposed to clean the area up. In photo, protest t-shirts available for $21.99 at Amazon. Expect racism in System of White Supremacy. Like Neely said, stock up on your protest supplies for signs, candles and teddy bears because it will not stop until we deal with the Cause and not just the effect. End circular thought and you will stop walking around in circles. To end police brutality end racism. To end racism neutralize white power. [MORE]  

Skid Row has a long history of homelessness. The area has attracted “hobos, aimless rail riders, transient workers, and people running away from past lives” since the 1880s, as charity Union Rescue Mission explains. A 1975 city policy that moved most social services for the homeless to the area made it a permanent destination for some of these people.

“The cops don’t want us here,” Ernie Soto, 34, who lay in a blanket near where the shooting took place, said Monday morning. “They tried to make an example out of him.”

“This is Skid Row,” said Mr. Soto, who said he had lived on the streets of Los Angeles since losing a job eight years ago. “This is for the homeless. I wish I could have a home, but it didn’t work out that way.”

The officers involved in the shooting were part of a city government plan called the “Safer Cities  Initiative,” first introduced under former police chief William Bratton in 2006. The initiative added 50 police to the area, tasked with the “broken windows” approach to policing, which holds that harsh punishments for small offenses stop more serious crimes from being committed. [MORE]

“Here’s a situation where you have an unarmed homeless man and you have six police officers, by my count, who came to apprehend the suspect,” Mr. Jones said. “This is another senseless death of another unarmed black man at the hands of police.”

Bruce Naivi, 37, a homeless man living near where the shooting took place, said he was not surprised by what had happened.

“I do not feel that the police are here to protect me,” he said. “I feel more like they have a badge to kill.”

LAPD Police Chief and white media put on show about the "justifiable homicide" of another non-white person.  “It appears to me that the officers acted compassionately up until the time that force was required,” Chief Beck added. “These are very difficult situations.” Beck, was pressed to note that a Black officer was also involved - inferring that this definitely was not racial.

City of Cleveland Blames Black 12 Year Old for his own Death - says White Cops who Shot him to Death Not Responsible 

From [HERE] Lawyers representing the family of a Black boy fatally shot by white cops expressed outrage Monday after the city of Cleveland said Tamir Rice’s death at the hands of an officer — who mistook the airsoft pellet gun he was holding for a real firearm — was caused by the 12-year-old’s “failure … to exercise due care to avoid injury."

The city had made the remarks Friday in a court filing, responding to a federal lawsuit filed by Tamir’s family accusing Officers Frank Garmback and Timothy Loehmann of acting recklessly and failing to provide first aid (PDF) during the Nov. 22 incident or attempt. The suit also names the city of Cleveland as a defendant, and says police failed to attempt to resuscitate Tamir, who died the following day.

"[The] plaintiffs’ decedent’s injuries, losses, and damages complained of, were directly and proximately caused by the acts of plaintiffs’ decedent, not this defendant," the city said in its response to the Rice family's complaint (PDF).

Cleveland police said that Garmback and Loehmann were responding to a 911 call about an individual who possibly was carrying a gun at a city playground. They said Tamir did not respond to commands from the officers, as they approached in their police cruiser, to show them his hands before Loehmann opened fire. 

Surveillance footage released by police showed Tamir, who had been holding an airsoft gun that shoots nonlethal plastic pellets, being shot less than two seconds after the officers' car stopped near him.

'Mind is a very subtle game. A mind that is filled with belief is a mind which can project anything according to that belief.' [pdfWhite folks see what they want to see when [Blacks are in sight] they watch the video. [Whites view Blacks as inherently criminal and engage in various forms of self deception when they are in the presence of people of color.]

However, [in reality] all that matters is what was visible to the cops when they arrived at the park. It is paramount that none of the information from the police dispatch call was corroborated when they arrived at the scene [police do not listen to 911 calls, they get information from the fire/police dispatch]. That is, 1) No "guy" or grown adult man was present - only a 12 yr old child. 2) There were no people around - the child was alone. So, no public danger. 3) No gun was visible - apparently the toy gun was in the child's pants and out of site when police arrived. In other words, when the cops arrived no crime was being committed in their presence and no visible danger was present. As such, there was no 4th Amendment basis to stop and seize (pulling out their loaded weapons and pointing them at him in the first place). No valid reason to kill. When they arrive they see a Black kid, alone. To them all that mattered was that he was Black. 

Surveillance video released by police shows Rice being shot less than two seconds after the patrol car stopped near him. Officer Timothy Loehmann told the boy to put his hands up, but he didn't comply, according to police.

The police chief said there was no confrontation between the boy and the cops and he did not threaten the officers with the gun or otherwise. After the white cops shot the boy they refused to provide medical aid.

D.C. to pay $9.2 million to Black Man for Wrongful Conviction for Rape of White Woman: Locked Up 22 Years, Endured Prison Rapes, has HIV, Depression & Estranged from Family

Nothing New. Newly elected Attorney General Shadowboxing for white folks already. Sounding like a Black Android, Karl Racine (in photo) said the City should not have to pay for the injustice done to Kirk Odom.  

From [HERE] A D.C. Superior Court judge ordered the District government Friday to pay a record $9.2 million in damages to Kirk L. Odom, 52, a Black man who was wrongfully imprisoned for more than 22 years in the rape and robbery of a white woman in her Capitol Hill apartment in 1981.

The amount, set by Judge Neal E. Kravitz, is the second — and largest — award in a case tried before a District judge under the District’s wrongful conviction law, which was approved in 1980. It also is one of the largest non-jury awards in an exoneration case in the United States.

“Mr. Odom spent more than twenty-two years of what should have been the prime of his adult life behind bars for a crime he did not commit,” Kravitz wrote in a 37-page opinion that recounted Odom’s “profound” physical and psychological suffering over the decades that included several prison rapes, his diagnosis with HIV — the virus that causes AIDS — suicide attempts, depression and family estrangement.

“It was readily apparent to the court at trial that Mr. Odom is only a shell of the young man he was at the time of his wrongful conviction, and only a shell of the grown man he would have become had he not been wrongly convicted and unjustly imprisoned,” Kravitz wrote.

In an interview , Odom, who was 18 at the time of the crime, said he welcomed word of the award from his attorneys, but added, “They can’t pay me enough money to give me back the years that I’ve lost.”

Odom, who lives in Southeast Washington with his wife of nearly 10 years, whom he met at an HIV support group, said he is attempting to reconnect with his adult daughter, born weeks before his original trial. “I’m just kind of continuing to move on with my life. It’s hard, but we’re working on it together, which is a good thing,” he said.

Chicago Mayor Plays Dumb about Abuse Allegations: Cops Disappeared Black Suspects, Detained without Charges or Access to Attorneys at Hidden "Black Site" 

From [HERE] and [HERE] The US Department of Justice and embattled mayor Rahm Emanuel are under mounting pressure to investigate allegations of what one politician called “CIA or Gestapo tactics” at a secretive Chicago police facility exposed by the Guardian.

Politicians and civil-rights groups across the US expressed shock upon hearing descriptions of off-the-books interrogation at Homan Square, the Chicago warehouse that multiple lawyers and one shackled-up protester likened to a US counter-terrorist black site in a Guardian investigation published this week.

As three more people came forward detailing their stories of being “held hostage” and “strapped” inside Homan Square without access to an attorney or an official public record of their detention by Chicago police, officials and activists said the allegations merited further inquiry and risked aggravating wounds over community policing and race that have reached as high as the White House.

Caught in the swirl of questions around the complex – still active on Wednesday – was Emanuel, the former chief of staff to Barack Obama who is suddenly facing a mayoral runoff election after failing to win a majority in a contest that has seen debate over police tactics take a central role.

Emanuel’s office refused multiple requests for comment from the Guardian on Wednesday, referring a reporter to an unspecific denial from the Chicago police.

The Guardian reported on Tuesday that police in Chicago detain suspects at Homan Square without booking them, thereby preventing their relatives and lawyers from knowing their whereabouts, reminiscent in the eyes of some lawyers and civil-rights activists of a CIA black site.

While people are held at Homan Square, which lawyers described as a process that often lasted between 12 and 24 hours, several attorneys said they had been refused access to the facility, and described entrance to it as a rare occurrence. One man interviewed by the Guardian said that ahead of a Nato protest in 2012, he was handcuffed to a bar behind bench for 17 hours inside Homan Square and refused a phone call before police finally permitted him to see his attorney.

In an interview Wednesday, another Nato protester, Vic Suter, offered a similar account of close shackling and an estimated 18 hours without access to an attorney.

“You are just kind of held hostage,” Suter told the Guardian. “The inability to see a lawyer is a drastic departure from what we consider our constitutional rights. Not being able to have that phone call, the lack of booking, makes it so that when you’re there, you understand that no one knows where you are.”

A third person, Kory Wright, came forward to the Intercept in a story published Thursday. He described spending six hours at Homan Square without being booked or having access to a lawyer, as well as being zip-tied to a bench “like a cross” - in an intentionally overheated room without access to water or a bathroom, eventually giving false statements to try and end his ordeal. [MORE]

Wright’s friend, Deandre Hutcherson, told the Intercept that he, too, was held at the facility, without either of the men being read their Miranda rights.

Murderers also Lie: New Autopsy shows White Pasco Cops Shot Latino Man in the Back - Surrendering, Unarmed with his hands out where they could be seen - shot @ 17 Times

In Racist System You Can be Legally Executed Anytime, Anyplace by White Cops in front of Cameras & Witnesses. [check the smiling racist suspect @ popo press conference. In their relations with non-whites, racist whites function as psychopaths.]

From [HERE]  Two autopsies. Two different opinions as to whether an unarmed Latino man was shot from behind by white police in Pasco, Washington, earlier this month.

Charles Herrmann, an attorney for the family of Antonio Zambrano-Montes, said Thursday that an autopsy conducted by a doctor he hired showed two bullets hit the 35-year-old orchard worker in the back of the arm and in the buttocks.

This is at odds with what police said a day earlier.

Kennewick Police Sgt. Ken Lattin had told reporters on Wednesday, "we do know this from the preliminary autopsy report, there were no shots in the back."

Police said the medical examiner was doing further investigation and a final report might take as long as four weeks. Witness statements and toxicology reports are also pending, police said.

There also is dispute over how many times total Zambrano-Montes was shot. Police said it was five or six times. The family's pathologist said he may have been shot as many as eight times, according to Hermann.

Both sides appear to agree that three police officers fired 17 times at Zambrano-Montes. Police said he hurled rocks at them on February 10.

Zambrano-Montes' case has sparked local protests and anger at what some say is another example of police brutality and excessive force against an unarmed man who is non-white.

The widow and children of Zambrano-Montes have filed a $25 million claim against the city of Pasco alleging that officers killed the unarmed man "execution style."

In an interview with CNN en Español this week, Zambrano-Montes' mother, Agapita Montes, denounced police treatment of her son.

"I'm asking for justice for what happened. It was not acceptable what they did to my son," his mother said. "From what you can see (on the video), it was very bad what they did to him."

Zambrano-Montes was one of 16 children, his mother said.

Erlinda Zambrano, an aunt of Zambrano-Montes, said she found it very difficult to accept the police version of events.

"We are living with profound pain from how he died, and it's something very bad and terrible," the aunt said. "I look at the videos now and I cannot sleep because it's too hard."

The family lawsuit claims Zambrano-Montes was unarmed "with his hands out where they could be seen."

"He had his back to the officers," the claim said. "At this point, the officers started shooting."

[Do You Really Expect Racist Lawmakers & Prison Officials to Enforce The Prison Rape Elimination Act?] The Rape of Too Many Black & Brown Boys in U.S. Prisons

This article from the Atlantic should be considered in the context of white supremacy/racism. The application or inapplication of laws such as the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) by racist lawmakers, law enforcement officers, prosecutors and prison officials creates injustice for non-whites. Neely Fuller calls such laws "non-laws." Racism is the problem, not laws. It is deception or delusional to believe that the elimination of or creation of more laws will have an affect on the way in which racist white people relate to non-whites. [MORE] and [MORE]. [In photo, racist suspect, Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, who has proposed to reduce the PREA's financial penalties.] 

From [HERE] Three years ago, the young man who would later be known as John Doe 1 shuffled into the Richard A. Handlon Correctional Facility in Ionia, Michigan. The town of 11,000 residents, which sits in the remote center of the state, houses five prisons, and over the years, it has earned the nickname “I Own Ya.” John, who was 17, had already gotten over the initial fear of going to an adult prison—he had spent several months at a county jail near Detroit and an intake facility in Jackson—but he also knew he would be spending longer at this lonely outpost, a minimum of three years for a couple of home invasions. It was still wintery in April, and his state-issued jacket was poor protection against the drafts coming through the broken windows, shattered by men who had passed through before. “It was pretty ragged,” he recalled recently, “a tear down.”

The rituals of intake were familiar. Standing in a line with several dozen other men, John stripped off his navy blue scrubs, squatted, and coughed to prove he wasn’t hiding anything. Once inside, he could try grimacing to look tough, as he had in his early mugshots, but he couldn’t hide his skinny frame or his high-pitched voice.

Over the next few days, while bringing trays of food around the blocks for his new kitchen job, John would learn that he had been placed in one of the nicer units (another he saw “looked like a basement, with the lights busted out”). But he also noticed that he was one of the youngest prisoners on the block. The other prisoners noticed too. He was what they called a “fish.”

His first cellmate was an older man, black like John, who was serving a life sentence, and he didn’t say much. But something about him seemed a little off, and that night, John says he awoke and saw this man sitting at a desk, wide awake, and staring right at him. John requested and received a new cell assignment. His second cellmate was also a lifer, and friendly enough, but after a few days the man asked to be paired with another lifer, so John was moved again.

It was around this time that the letters started sliding under his cell door. John would get a lot of letters from other prisoners over the next few months, and while they weren’t always explicit, some certainly were. “You are one sexy nigger,” one read. “You need a white man to show you how to act ... When the opportunity comes I want to sneak in your house and hit that.” Another letter said he had a “fan club.”

John didn’t take these letters seriously; he threw many of them away. He settled into GED classes and shifts serving breakfast and lunch. From the prison library he pulled volumes ranging from the poems of Langston Hughes (“They’re so simple, but they explain so much”) to thriller paperbacks by Dean Koontz and James Patterson.

His new cellmate, whom we’ll call David, had already served a little more than a year out of a minimum of eight for robbery. He was in his early 20s, over six feet with a tuft on his chin and a thin mustache. They talked about their families and the crimes that had gotten them locked up.

But then David said something that struck John as strange. He asked him if he would ever get involved sexually with a man. John knew himself to be heterosexual; he had lost his virginity to a girl the year before. “I just kind of laughed it off,” he recalled.

And then it happened. One night after the last count before bed, John says, his cellmate suddenly attacked him, pulling down both of their pants and wrestling him onto the bottom bunk. John tried to resist, but he was less than 140 pounds, and next to David’s bulk of more than 200 he stood little chance as this powerful man forced his way in, slowly and painfully and in silence, without a condom or lubricant.

John would later estimate that it lasted seven minutes. When David was finished, he told him to keep quiet. John obeyed; though still a fish, he had been down long enough to know that snitches suffer fates worse than rape.

In 2003, while John was still in elementary school, Congress passed the Prison Rape Elimination Act, now usually known as PREA. It was intended to make experiences like his far less likely. But like many ambitious pieces of legislation, its promise has proved difficult to realize. The law required studies of the problem that took far longer than initially intended, and adoption of the guidelines they produced has been painfully slow, resting on the competence and dedication of particular employees. PREA has not been a complete failure, but it is also far from delivering on its promise, and John’s story illustrates many of the hurdles that have impeded the law and still lie in its path.

[No Such Thing as Innocent Black Male in Racist System] Another White Man Free after Murdering Black Person: No Federal Charges for Zimmerman 

From [HERE] George Zimmerman, the psychopathic white man who fatally shot Trayvon Martin in a 2012 confrontation with the Black unarmed teenager, will not face federal charges, the Justice Department said Tuesday. [yes he is a white man; his father is Jewish and his mother is from Barcelona, Spain - which is in Europe MORE

Zimmerman has said he acted in self-defense when he shot the 17-year-old Martin during a confrontation inside Martin's own gated community in Sanford, Florida, just outside Orlando when he was killed.

[This non-lawyer would have provided a more vigorous prosecution than the team of limp-wristed flunkeys that tried Zimmerman. For show only (or the appearance of justice): they did not want to win.] 

Once Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder by a state jury in July 2013 after a limp wristed effort by the prosecution, Martin's family turned to the federal investigation in hopes that he would be held accountable for the shooting.

That probe focused on whether the killing amounted to a federal civil rights violation, which would have required proof that it was motivated by racial animosity. Although Martin's parents have said Zimmerman initiated the fight, the Justice Department said there was not enough evidence to establish that Zimmerman willfully deprived Martin of his civil rights -- a difficult legal standard to meet in a racist system of white supremacy-- or killed the teenager on account of his race.

More on White Dominance and Black Criminality below courtesy of Amos Wilson

From [HERE] The perpetual domination of African Americans by White Ameri­cans psychically requires the White American criminalization of the African male, i.e., the White American perception of the African male as inherently criminal. In the context of White American domination there is no innocent Black male, just Black male criminals who have not yet been detected, apprehended or convicted. Their mere presence inspires in White Americans, fears of being assaulted, raped, robbed, or some other indefinable dread of being criminally victimized. Fantasies of the sexual molestation of White females by rapacious Black males are common to the White American male and female consciousness, and are frequent themes of their literary, cinematic, and pornographic productions.

For a very large percentage of White Americans, young Black males, sexual promiscuity, and criminality are synonymous. In the dominant White American consciousness the African male is existentially guilty, (i.e., he is guilty by his mere existence) for merely having the audacity of being alive. There is a pervasive feeling among many White Americans that their world would be much more secure if all young Black males were imprisoned, solitarily confined to their ghettos, or kept under constant surveillance. It is no quirky coincidence that such perceptions, feelings and attitudes toward African American males occur most prevalently within the context of White American dominance. Ultimately, criminality of the Black male regardless of its nature, truth or reality, resides in any act or attitude on the part of Black males which appears to White Americans to defy White American authority, control or dominance. It is White America which defines criminality and writes the criminal justice codes. It writes these codes not in the interest of justice as defined by its own moral code, but in the interest of maintaining, justifying and enforcing its continued dominance of the African American community.

In the interest of maintaining and justifying continuity of the White American community, the African male is not only readily suspected of committing crimes, but is actively provoked and seduced into criminality by his White American accusers and persecutors. White America's need to dominate Black America creates the need to perceive the African male as criminal, and to actualize African male criminality by socializing or ritualizing him into it by dent of judicial witchcraft. Such maneuvers are necessary in order to justify the White American community's repression of African Americans and psychodynamically defend the collective White American ego complex. The need to projectively perceive the African male as criminal, to psycho-socially and politicoeconomically condition his criminality, is reflective of repressed White American guilt and criminality. The White American community must realize, though it will not admit it, that crimes committed in the service of White American domina­tion — the rape and robbery of nations, the murder and exploitation of native peoples and their lands, the denial of the humanity of non-European peoples, the enslavement, lynching, racial discrimination against and disenfranchisement of African Americans — infinitely outweigh the alleged crimes of African American men. White American and European denial of their historical criminal subjugation and vicious exploitation of African peoples and their ongoing defense of their continuing criminal subordination of African peoples have psychically infected the African mind with a variant of White American/European communal psychopathology. Such Eurocentric psychopathology is manifested inBlack-on-Black crime, the subject of this essay.

Black male criminality is the stepchild of White male criminal­ity. The White male, in order to enhance and protect his self-image, enjoy the material wealth, power, and political advantages of his criminality, must deny truth and reality: he must not experience the guilty conscience which would result from an acknowledgment and acceptance of his own criminality and psychopathy. His malevolent incrustations must be smoothed over and his criminal dross transmuted to gold. The collective White American ego complex must deny and distort reality if it is to persist in perceiving itself as God's chosen; as sanctified in face of its beastification of the African Americans (particularly males) and its thingification of others.

ACLU Report says Rhode Island's Racist Policies and Practices Lead to a lifetime of unequal treatment for Blacks 

From [HERE] and [HERE] In a wide-ranging series of charges in a report [PDF], the American Civil Liberties Union on Thursday said the state's policies and practices discriminate against black Rhode Islanders from childhood to adulthood. [In photo, the Governor of Rhode Island, Gina Marie Raimondo, democrat (the nicer white party).]

The 17-page report, “The School-to-Prison Pipeline in Black and White,” says that blacks are disproportionately suspended from school, stopped and searched by police, arrested and incarcerated. 

The problem is “a persistent and far-reaching" one that contributes to a “school-to-prison pipeline” and “a systematic pattern of pushing students, especially minorities, out of the classroom and into the criminal justice system."

The ACLU report offers a brief but systematic examination of racial disparities in Rhode Island, and how those interconnected disparities can lead to a lifetime of unequal treatment. 

Data has long shown that black Rhode Islanders are disproportionally suspended from school, stopped and searched by police, arrested, and incarcerated. When this data is compiled, as it is in the report, it becomes clear that the disproportionate singling out, scrutinizing, and punishing of black Rhode Islanders is a persistent and far-reaching problem and one that contributes to the school-to-prison pipeline, a systematic pattern of pushing students, especially minorities, out of the classroom and into the criminal justice system. [MORE]

The report follows similar charges by civil rights groups and protesters across the nation and in books like Michelle Alexander's "The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness."

The local ACLU chapter is urging state and municipal leaders to examine state policies, practices and procedures that lead to discrimination. It supports legislation to end racial profiling and limit the use of out-of-school suspensions.
