Here’s How Prison and Jail Systems Brutalize Women, Especially Mothers

Ken’s Comments:   This reminds us that women are the fastest growing prison population. Most are there for victimless crimes, like addiction and prostitution. I don’ think that is justice nor a wise use of our resources (locking them up at a cost or about $40,000 per person per year), when they can be treated for about 1/3 the cost!

Ken’s Comments:   Given the FACTS, all that tRump has said and done, it is just laughable that he thinks showing up here with scripted comments will lead anyone to think that he cares about civil rights! He does not understand … has no respect for … and has sought to destroy … civil rights! Excerpts from the Article:   President Trump looked somber as Reuben Anderson, Mississippi’s first African-American...

God willing, we will have plenty of...

The Chicago Police Had A Secret Black Site Where They Treated Petty Criminals Like Terrorists – Amazing! kra

Posted by on Dec 3, 2017 in Featured, Other Issues, Police Brutality | Comments

Ken’s Comments:   You’ve got to read this one to believe it. Even in this age of so much police abuse, this is pretty extreme. With Jeff Sessions leading the U S D O J, there can be no reasonable expectation that those responsible will be held accountable.    Excerpts from the Article:   From around 2004 to 2015, the Chicago Police Department ran a detention center that functioned more like a CIA black site.
