    Johnny Strozier Keeping It Real Jan. 18, 2015

    in Politics Progressive

    Johnny Strozier "Keeping It Real" goes on air at 9pm EST on Jan. 18, 2015! Call (347) 857-3293 to speak on air. A Georgia prisoner for 46 years  - from 1968 to 2013, Strozier speaks about re-entry opportunities and challenges and reveals what life was like growing up and nearly growing old in prison. He was incarcerated from age 10 to his mid-50s. Johnny's stories are tragic, sometimes darkly humorous, and always inspirational as he challenges us to think right and act right so that our lives will go right.

    He was initially arrested at age 6, when he and friends broke into an Atlanta warehouse to steal cigarettes for family members and candy for themselves. He was sentenced to juvenile detention at age 10 and transferred to an adult facility at age 16. His sentence was lengthened to 90 years after cutting a prison guard. Strozier was moved to death row, but the guard lived and so did he. Strozier spent 15 years in solitary confinement. Strozier's warden once told him he would never exit prison alive. But Johnny did get paroled because he changed, and so can all of us change to realize our dreams. 

    Hear Strozier's debut broadcast of June 3, 2014, archived at Blogtalkradio for your convenience any day or time.

    MaryLovesJustice Prayer Meeting re Executions

    in Politics Progressive

    People await execution in numerous states in the USA. We will pray for an end to capital punishment Sunday, Jan. 18, 2014 at MaryLovesJustice Prayer Meeting. Please call  (818) 572-2947. 

    For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the LORD behold the earth; to hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death ~Psalm 102:19-20

    Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body ~Hebrews 13:3

    Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again ~Luke 6:38

    Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy ~Matthew 5:7

    If ye love me, keep my commandments ~John 14:15

    Nobody can be a Christian (follower of Jesus) without being a human rights activist. JESUS CHRIST is the world's greatest human rights advocate. He is against capital punishment (Psalm 102:19-20), prisoner torture (Heb. 13:3), environmental destruction (Rev. 11:17), victimizing people (Matt. 25:40), avoidable wars (Rom. 12:18 ), all forms of discrimination (Gal. 3:28 ), and apathy about human suffering, which is inexcusable (Prov. 31:8).

    What part of "Thou Shalt Not Kill" do Christians not understand? (Exodus 20:13)

  • 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.

    Getting Away with Murder: A George Mallinckrodt Interview

    in Politics Progressive

    Human Rights for Prisoners March, hosted by Mary Neal. Call (347)857-3293 to comment or ask questions.

    George Mallinckrodt is a psychotherapist who formerly worked in Florida prisons counseling mentally ill inmates. He observed an alarming pattern of abuse by corrections officers and complained. He lost his job. Months later, he learned about the death by scalding of Darren Rainey, a 50-year-old black mentally ill inmate who guards scalded to death in a small shower. Rainey was tortured under a strong spray of 180°F water (water boils at 212°F). Rainey's skin had to be scraped from the shower after his body was removed. No charges were filed after Rainey's homicide, and no autopsy report was released to date. Disgusted by the lack of accountability. Mallinckrodt then published a book about abused mentally ill inmates, murderous corrections officers, and the Florida Department of Corrections called "Getting Away with Murder."

    "The Florida Department of Corrections is riddled with amoral, sadistic sociopaths and the people who support, enable, and cover-up their crimes." ~ @GeoMallinckrodt (at Twitter)

    "If what is done to mentally ill Florida inmates was done in the military, these would be considered war crimes." ~George Mallinckrodt?

    Mary Neal Explains The Cochran Firm Fraud

    in Politics Progressive

    Stalkers overlaid my voice on the BlogTalkRadio show on Jan. 7, 2015, with static. Hear "Christopher Tucker vs. The Cochran Firm and Oklahoma City PD." Therefore, at 3pm on Jan. 8 on "Human Rights Demand" channel, I will attempt to re-tape my responses to Christopher Tucker's testimony about the police brutality he suffered and his victimization by The Cochran Firm. It is ridiculous for this law firm to think it can continue to defraud its African American clients and have those frauds go without discovery and exposure simply because of some arrangement it may have with media companies and government agencies.

    The Cochran Firm will not continue to misuse its position and Johnnie Cochran's name to defraud black legal consumers to help government agencies and Big Business to save money when sued by blacks. If my voice is overlaid with static today, I will picket The Cochran Firm at the Peachtree Street, Atlanta office that the firm had Georgia Superior Court to pronounce "nonexistent" when the court wrongly dismissed our lawsuit against The Cochran Firm frauds in 2006. I am NOT afraid of racists and accomplices to murder masquarading as lawyers, judges and goverment officials.

    Thousands of innocent people are released from incarceration every year. Most of them are released because they served their sentences. Between 5k and 10k people are wrongfully convicted annually. The Univ. of Mich. Law School Innocence Clinic says most wrongful convictions are caused by:

    ~Eyewitness Misidentification 
    ~Junk Science 
    ~False Confessions
    ~Government Misconduct 
    ~Lying Snitches 
    ~Bad Lawyering

    Saturday broadcasts do not air every week. If you know of an actually innocent person who is awaiting trial or has been sentenced, you are invited to contact Mary Neal to broadcast the situation. Call 678.531.0262 or email MaryLovesJustice@gmail.com - Innocent people include defendants who were mentally ill at the time of the arrest.

    Avoidable Deaths of Hernan M. Ossorio and Darren Rainey, Mentally Ill Americans

    in Politics Progressive

    Americans with mental illness deserve at least the same respect for their right to life as American dogs have. Join us at (347) 857-3293 to discuss the deaths of Hernan Ossorio, 61, of Elliott City, MD, and Darren Rainey, a mentally ill inmate who died by torture (scalding) in Dade Correctional Institution in Florida in 2012. Rainey's demise was not publicized until 2014 when Harold and Windy Hempstead published it in the Miami Herald. Rainey's unrequited murder demonstrates America's need for treatment to replace punishment for severe mentally ill Americans and the necessity of demanding accountability of police and corrections officers who violate human and civil rights. Windy Hempstead will be our guest today along with Mr. Ossorio's daughter, Lillian. Mr. Ossorio's death underscores our nation's need for crisis intervention team (CIT) training for police officers who answer lunacy calls.

    Mr. Ossorio apparently suffered a nervous breakdown when his business failed. Police were called when he was in a mental health crisis, and police allegedly killed him within minutes of their arrival to his home. 

    Mr. Ossorio commented at the WBAL article: "He was my uncle and a very good person, he was not to kill him ... just because he was Latino, they think they can do whatever they want with them. He was a tireless worker, and most of his life, he lived in the United States. It seems wrong that this country will pay that. He had a family and like everyone was having bad times, but not to kill him, as they did. I hope justice is done and stop killing people because I love you dude. You're the best person I met, You're the best. Facundo - Argentina"

    "The First Americans Were Africans," by Dr. David Imhotep

    in Politics Progressive

    African historian Dr. David Imhotep will be our guest on November 29, 2014 on the "Human Rights Demand" radio broadcast at Blogtalkradio station. To connect with the host, Mary Neal, please call (347) 857-3293 to speak on air. Your questions and comments are appreciated.

    Dr. Imhotep wrote "The First Americans Were Africans." He asserts that Africans were indeed the first Americans and that they arrived 51,000 years prior to the Mongolians, Imhotep illustrates a date that is four times earlier than what is largely referenced.

    “Africans not only came before Columbus, but were in the Americas long before any other group, at least 56,000 years ago,” says Imhotep. “With this book, I produce and expand on evidence from several scientific fields, credible scholars, professors and researchers.”

    Expanding on a foundation of research and historic evidence, "The First Americans Were Africans" provides insight into remnants of architecture, writings and artifacts as it explores the beliefs surrounding the Vikings, Columbus, the Indians and more. With more than 700 footnotes, Imhotep intends for it to also serve as a guide for future research.

    “The first Americans came to this land far before what we have been taught,” he says. “This changes the way history has been written, and fills a void that has long existed.”

    About the author:

    Dr. David Imhotep is one of the first people to hold a Ph.D. with a specialization in ancient African history. He has traveled the world researching for the last 30 years, searching for relevant and interesting evidence. He has appeared on and been referenced in various media outlets, including “The New York Times.”

    Mani said: "This is an introduction of the Strong Heart Warrior Society. Identity is of the original Dog Solider Society. Its originality is with the Lakota Nation and is the oldest of its kind. Many societies claim to be for their people, but few proved themselves and remain worthy of their people's trust. The Strong Heart Dog Soldier Society will remain. We are past, present, and forever. This brief mission statement gives credence to our traditional concepts. This society is alcohol- and drug-free. As a society with its own values of its kind, we are here. We are forever."
