    Dallas 6: Peaceful Protesters Charged with Riot in Solitary Confinement

    in Current Events

    Who are the Dallas 6?


    At SCI Dallas (PA), after a series of abuses at the hands of corrections officials, some prisoners housed in the solitary confinement unit decided they had enough and decided to stage a protest in response to the inhumane conditions and mistreatment of prisoners.  They decided it was time to do something about the inhumane conditions, immediately, before another prisoner dies or is brutally harmed. Each prisoner involved in the protest is now collectively referred to as the Dallas 6.  They are Andre Jacobs, Anthony Locke, Anthony Kelly, Carrington Keys, Duane Peters and Derrick Stanley.

    On April 28th 2010, prisoner Isaac Sanchez was subjected to a planned attack by the Restrictive Housing Unit (RHU) staff, forcibly removed from his cell and brutally beaten by officers in riot gear.   Sanchez was subject to this attack as a result of speaking out against the abuse at Dallas prison on behalf of his fellow comrades.  After being told they were next, Dallas 6 barricaded themselves in for protection and covered their cell windows.  They asked for outside intervention but instead were beaten, electroshocked and peppersprayed.  They filed complaints against the DOC and 3 months later, in retaliation, they were charged with riot. 

    As revealed in the Human Rights report, there has  long been a policy within the prison walls of Dallas and the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections (DOC) to operate a corrupt administration under an iron wall of silence. The DOC, State Police, DA's office work in conjunction to railroad these men.   There is a campaign underway to dismiss the charges and I am reaching out for awareness and support.

    A Just Cause Coast 2 Coast - Solitary Confinement & IRP6 Case Details

    in US Government

    Sam Thurman, Cliff Stewart and Lisa Stewart of the Colorado exoneration firm A Just Cause, discuss what happens when the wheels of justice trample unbridled over the rights of innocent Americans.  


    Although the American system of justice is the most-respected worldwide, it is still a system designed, and operated, by humans, which means it's not perfect. Sam, Cliff, and Lisa will highlight ongoing struggles against "the system" to free wrongfully imprisoned people, and what happens when justice miscarries against an actually innocent person.


    Our Special Guest for tonight's show is Sarah Shourd, an Author, Activist and Contributing Editor for Solitary Watch a web-based project aimed at bringing the widespread use of solitary confinement out of the shadows and into the light of the public square..


    A Just Cause is currently campaigning for "FreeTheIRP6," who's been wrongly imprisoned in Florence, CO for a crime they didn't commit. Read full story: www.freetheirp6.org.

    Solitary Confinement and Wrongful Deaths Under Color of Law 03/28/15 - Acklin

    in Politics Progressive

    Today we discuss SOLITARY CONFINEMENT and WRONGFUL DEATHS at at BlogTalkRadio at 3pmEST on Saturday, March 28. Call (818)572-2947. Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill (AIMI) has advocated for mentally ill Americans for ten years. Mary Neal's mentally, physically disabled brother, Larry Neal, was secretly arrested and murdered in 2003, and we did not learn that it is usual, ordinary and INTENTIONAL to use mentally ill people for prison profits or kill them until 2006. That is when Mary Neal founded AIMI. Please visit us at Facebook, Google+, and Care2. See also our blog "Dog Justice for Mentally Ill" at http://DogJusticeforMentallyIll.blogspot.com . At Twitter, we use @koffietime.


    AIMI's advocacy experiences opposition because mentally ill people comprise over half the nation's 2.3 million inmates, and prison investors in government seem to use the nation's surveillance technology and personnel to censor the advocacy. But we are moving the fight out of their hands and taking this issue to International Court this year to win damages for up to 100 impacted families. We find it impossible to abolish slavery from within. Google "AIMI vs. USA" for more information about the International Court lawsuit to win damages for neglected, brutalized, and killed Americans who have/had mental illness. Persons who have drug/alcohol addictions and the homeless are included.


    Please sign and share our petition called "AIMI v. USA" at http://www.thepetitionsite.com/713/784/918/aimi-v-usa/

    TONIGHTS TOPIC:  THE FAIRNESS AND INTEGRITY OF THE INJUSTICE SYSTEM. 


    Here is an excerpt from a statement by Carrington Keys:


    In school we were always taught about the fair justice system that we have.  Every day in school the children pledge allegiance to one nation having justice and liberty for all.   When I was in high school, I refused to pledge allegiance to the flag.  The teachers would tell me to stand and have respect for what it represented.  I like many others were told that our justice system is based upon fairness and integrity.  I have a question for those of our fellow Americans who still believe that the justice system is fair.  How can a justice system that is represented by a symbol of a blind lady with an unbalanced scale be a fair system?
