On this anniversary of the September 11th Attacks, join us for a discussion about prisoner rights with Cecily McMillan, as she shares her own experience through the American judicial system following her wrongful arrest during the Occupy Wall Street protests.
Cecily McMillan is a 25-year-old graduate student at the New School, union organizer, and Occupy Wall Street activist who was convicted of allegedly assaulting a police officer on March 17, 2012. After two years of censoring evidence and hand-selecting jurors, the prosecution was blatantly favored with overwhelming bias from Judge Ronald Zweibel. In a shocking verdict that stunned outside observers, she was found guilty despite insufficient evidence and Zweibel sentenced McMillan to 90 days in jail at Rikers Island. She was sent directly to jail on May 5 2014, despite having missed no court appointments over two years of hearings and her public insistence on refusing to plea out. During the long period between her initial arrest and the jury trial, Cecily was arrested again by the NYPD on December 7th of 2013 for observing and attempting to video-document the arrests of two young people in the Union Square subway station. McMillan and her supporters denounce the trumped up charges that were intended to undermine her credibility, for which she faces up to a year back on Rikers.

These are the final chapters in the Battle for Riker's Island Part 1 - Monsters, Mobsters and Heroes. http://www.amazon.com/Butterfly-Murders-Battle-Rikers-ebook/dp/B006LPHC9K is the next installation in the four part series. At Riker's, the tension was so thick you could cut it with a knife. The straight officers were fed up with all the pressure on everybody because of those on the take; and were ready to take matters into their own hands. Zeigler had been suspicious, but would not come to J. White’s face with half baked rumors. With both Naija’s kindred spirit and Keisha’s damaged double souls caught on Department of Corrections’ camera during the fight, the word got out about Naija who was already enjoying celebrity status at the Women’s Jail. Lilith had visited most if not all of those asleep, and with the allure of the succubus, they adored Naija. Talk of a foundation, the Angel Marked Foundation was circling and Naija would be its naturally selected leader. Once visited, the victim never longed for drugs or alcohol again. Lilith laid them straight with the power of tens of thousands of climaxes.
