    Human Rights Demand for Justice

    in Politics Progressive

    JUSTICE is the constant and perpetual disposition to render every man his due. It is the proper administration of the law; the fair and equitable treatment of all individuals under the law. Justice is also a title given to certain judges, such as federal and state supreme court judges. Justice is 1) fairness, 2) moral rightness, 3) a scheme or system of law in which every person receives his/her/its due from the system, including all rights, both natural and legal. One problem is that attorneys, judges, and legislatures often get caught up more in procedure than in achieving justice for all. 
    (Read more at http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/justice ).


    At "Human Rights Demand," we believe that justice is unlikely to happen where lawmakers and justice officials have a conflict of interest. Demand the resignations of lawmakers, judges, public defenders, prosecutors, Justice Department personnel and everyone else on the public's payroll if they are also PRISON INVESTORS. That is the only way to decriminalize mental illness, eliminate mass incarceration, and restore justice to our courtrooms. Tell public employees to DIVEST OR RESIGN. We must rid our government of everyone whose stock portfolios perform best with mass incarceration, wars, and when environmental concerns are ignored. Ask your congressional representative to introduce a bill that prohibits all lawmakers and other public officials and their spouses from earning prison profits. Pass such a bill, and we will see positive Change in the justice system. Only when prison investors can no longer write laws, represent and prosecute defendants, or preside over criminal cases will any semblance of justice arrive in U.S. courts.

    Debby Sapp Joins Human Rights for Prisoners March

    in Politics Progressive

    Friends, please join us Jan. 5, at 3:00pmEST when Debbie Sapp will be our special guest. Call (347) 857-3293 to speak on air about prisoner abuse and how to give Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill.

    Debbie wrote: "My son John, a lifelong mentally ill man, obediently took the plea and ended up with 15 YEARS, with NO chance of parole! And, we’re not sure that he’ll even come home when his time is up, because the system is so corrupt that we fear they’ll put up infinite roadblocks. That’s one of the reasons he tried to kill himself – He sees no end in sight. 

    John needs proper mental health care for his bipolar disorder. John was first diagnosed as having mental illness at age 3 while we lived in Delaware. John was a special ed student since age 9. He was admitted to Terry Children's Psychiatric Center because of his aggressive and disruptive behavior. Two years later, John was doing well at school and on weekend visits and was released. Outpatient therapy continued. He did well for a while, then had trouble. He was admitted to Marine Bay Institute. John was in and out of different psychiatric facilities and programs for most of his life. With the help of Rangle Hill Treatment Facility, John was finally stabilized on Lithium and was able to maintain himself without hospitalization for a period of four years. John was even able to be self-sufficient throughout those years. He worked with a lawn care service, and he worked in an entertainment venue at night. Unfortunately, John was falsely accused of a crime and was incarcerated. The charges were eventually dismissed. However, during John's incarceration for six months, he was deprived of his psychiatric medication. This completely destabilized John, and he has never recovered."

    Assisted Outpatient Treatment (AOT) programs restore many former inmates to wholesome lives.

    Mary Diaz of Human Conflicts Org Demands More Pardons and Paroles 3

    in Politics Progressive

    "Human Rights Demand" presents Mary Diaz and Human Conflicts Organization. Mary is a prisoner activist who advocates for paroles and pardons. Tell us your opinion by calling (347)857-3293, or you can listen by computer live or hear the archived tape 24/7. Diaz is affiliated with "Human Conflicts," and "LET MY PEOPLE GO" is the motto. Mary lives in Florida, which had over 5,200 inmates who were parole eligible in 2014 but released fewer than 25. Prison investors on Pardons and Paroles Boards may be a barrier to freedom for many rehabilitated inmates. 


    Diaz said Alabama's Pardon and Parole Board has become a trendsetter for the rest of the country regarding releases. In Alabama during 2014, the Board considered 6,647 paroles, of which 2,237 were granted. The Board granted 657 pardons of 798 pardons heard and processed 522 voter rights restorations. That is real progress against mass incarceration. Some of the change may be credited to the Southern Poverty Law Center's lawsuit against the Alabama prison system.


    Diaz makes a human rights demand: Either release eligible prisoners after they serve their minimum sentences, or show why their parole would risk community safety. Attention: 20 to life does NOT mean life. That sentence means offenders serve at least 20 years and then are released unless there is a good reason why not. Prison profits is NOT an acceptable reason to keep parole-eligible men and women incarcerated. Taxpayers simply cannot afford it, and most are not interested in having a rehabilitated, harmless, geiatric prison population just to enrich prison investors.

That is real progress against mass incarceration. Some of the change may be credited to the Southern Poverty Law Center's lawsuit against the Alabama prison system.

    "Presently, Maynard Cooper & Gale is fighting a Southern Poverty Law Center lawsuit that claims the health care provided to Alabama's inmates is inadequate and unconstitutional. Correctional health care firm Corizon is paying the firm to fight the lawsuit on behalf of the state due to a provision in its $224 million contract with the state. In total, the state has spent $1.86 million in taxpayer money to fight prison lawsuits in the past four years." reports AL(dot) com. That sum likely also includes a lawsuit by the ‎ACLU for segregating inmates with HIV. Righteous lawsuits litigated in just courts matter.

    We discuss pardons, paroles, and successful re-entry at Human Rights Demand. Please participate!
