We discuss organized prison rebellions past and present. Starting with #ShutemDown2021. This week we’ll acknowledge many historical events whose anniversaries occurred either within the past…
Too much information to report on the first time we went into this story, so we will take it on in two-part format- America and its precedent of detaining entire families and enslaving them. The fallout behind the rapes, and abuses, the children being underfed and under developed, no medical care- and of course, the forced labor.
The fallout from former MDOC Commissioner Christopher Epps and former state legislator Cecil McRory’s corruption case continues to spider web out, and some of the co-conspirators are refusing to face the legal implications.. in the most extreme way imaginable.
From Mississippi, we’ll jump over to Alabama, and Florida to give you an update on the deaths in custody in those states. Record breaking numbers, and not all of them are even making it to the prison plantation. Many of these deaths are occurring in city jails, before folks are even convicted of any crime.
Our final segment, we will take a look at the Governor of California’s 2015-16 Criminal Justice Budget Proposals. Hot off the press- here’s a hint, more slavery and human trafficking.
Our Unexplainable Black Death Profile is Mother Kathryn Johnston, 92- shot and killed by police in a raid at the wrong address.
Our Abolitionist of the Day is Patrisse Marie Cullors-Brignac, one of the co-founders of the Black Lives Matter movement.
