    THE PAROLE OF MASS MURDERER DAVID ENNIS-Tammy Arishenkoff

    in Entertainment

     In August 1982, in Kelowna, British Columbia David Shearing shot grandparents George and Edith Bentley and parents Bob and Jackie Johnson at their campsite in Wells Gray Park. The sole purpose of these murders was to give him access to the two Johnson daughters Janet, age 13 and Karen, age 11 for purposes of rape, molestation and torture. He held the girls captive for almost a week and then murdered them as well. He put the bodies of the girls in the trunk of the family car with the four adults in the back seat, and set the car on fire - leaving the bodies nearly unidentifiable.


    A hearing was set for September 4, 2014 to give consideration for day  and full parole for Ennis. If day parole were granted, he would be allowed to live in a halfway house. If full parole were granted, he would be allowed to live in the community. Ennis was denied parole in 2008 and in 2012 for numerous issues, including a diagnosis of phychopathy.


    Tammy Arishenkoff attended school with the young girls and worked with the victim's family to organize an on-line petition drive to deny David Ennis' parole; sending the following to the parole board in Ottawa:


    We, the undersigned, feel that the release of David Ennis, formerly David Shearing, into the community would jeopardize the safety of all citizens, but more importantly our children. As well, the heinous nature of his crimes should preclude any possibility of release.


    Tammy Arishenkoff and her followers strongly urged the Parole Board of Canada to once again deny parole to this murderer at the upcoming hearing September 4, 2014. This is what happened. THE PAROLE OF MASS MURDERER DAVID ENNIS-Tammy Arishenkoff

    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.

    "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!

    This week I discussed the Keystone Pipeline that was vetoed by President Obama


    The Verdict of the Chris Kyle murder case, where Routh was sentenced to life in prison without parole, and was determined by experts to never even have PTSD. The man had never even seen combat during his service as a Marine, and often used the "PTSD card" as an excuse after he got himself into trouble for being intoxicated.
