    Dallas 6: Peaceful Protesters Charged With Riot in Solitary

    in Self Help

    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.  On January 21, 2014 these men are facing trial for these bogus charges.  There is a campaign underway to dismiss the charges and I am reaching out for awareness and support.

    A Just Cause Coast 2 Coast: Juveniles In Solitary Confinement

    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 Guests for tonight's show are Jean Casella, Co-Founder & Editor of Solitary Watch, and Johnny Perez, who is an advocate for the Urban Justice Center.


    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.
