Rally Against Brutality and Deaths in Custody - Georgia Capitol


I. 
In-custody brutality and deaths threaten peace in the United States, yet they are becoming the modus operandi of murderous police officers. This is true presumably because they are easier to cover-up. Some media companies are attempting to fill the gap in reporting deaths by police, which the U.S. Justice Department deliberately leaves, but journalists should include deaths that occur soon after arrest in order to get a more accurate total. Increasingly, victims are hauled off to jail before killings, where police cannot be filmed by commuters. Some arrestees, like Freddie Gray and Kelly Thomas, are barely living shortly after their police encounters, and other doomed victims, like Larry Neal and Daniel Linsinbigler, live in custody for a couple of weeks. Many arrestees receive capital punishment in extrajudicial killings without any benefit of trial. In fact, numerous victims die before their first appearance in court. (The paragraphs in this article are labeled I through XXXV to discourage hackers. This article has absolutely NO empty lines. If any empty lines appear, they represent sabotage by hackers, and we will schedule more rallies.)
II.
In addition to jail deaths, America has an extremely high rate of deaths in prisons - 346 in Florida alone in 2014. The United Nations Committee Against Torture addressed the United States' high rate of in-custody deaths after its review last fall. Its findings and recommendations are below.
III.
DEATHS IN CUSTODY 
22) The Committee notes with concern that 958 inmates died while in the custody of local jails during 2012, an 8 percent increase from the 889 deaths in 2010. During the same year, State prison deaths remained stable with 3,351 reported deaths. The Committee is particularly concerned about reports of inmate deaths occurred as a result of extreme heat exposure while imprisoned in unbearably hot and poor ventilated prison facilities in Arizona, California, Florida, New York, Michigan and Texas (arts. 2, 11 and 16).
IV.
The Committee urges the State party to investigate promptly, thoroughly and impartially ALL deaths of detainees, assessing the health care received by inmates as well as any possible liability of prison personnel, and provide, where appropriate, adequate compensation to the families of the victims.
V.
RALLY AT THE GEORGIA STATE CAPITOL, Mondays Throughout August
On August 3, we will hold a rally at the Georgia Capitol from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. against brutality and deaths in custody and bring awareness about a congressional bill, H.R.2646. Notices about the rally were censored. Therefore, each Monday throughout August after August 3, rallies will be held from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. at the Georgia Capitol Building (August 10, 17, 24, and 31). More than half of the victims of violence by police and corrections officers are mentally ill people. Over 60 percent of the prisoners enduring torturous solitary confinement are also mentally challenged. Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill planned the August rallies in commemoration of the "Wrongful Death of Larry Neal" and other victims. August 1 marks the 12th anniversary of Larry Neal's kidnapping and death in Memphis Shelby County Jail, which happened in 2003. We also plan to bring awareness to H.R.2646 "Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act," a federal bill introduced by Rep. Tim Murphy (R-PA) and Eddie Denise Johnson (D-TX), which has provisions that should help reduce mass incarceration of persons with serious mental illness.
VI.
There is little to no effort to "investigate promptly, thoroughly and impartially" any deaths of arrestees and U.S. prisoners, and unfortunately, in-custody deaths engender even less accountability by law officers and guards than public shooting and Tasing episodes. Without videos and witness statements by onlookers, the American public usually has only the word of law enforcement and prison officers as to what caused the deaths. Generally, families are told the victims killed themselves or were found in their cells unresponsive. Occasionally, the victims' fellow inmates provide witness statements regarding overuse of force, and some in-custody deaths are ruled homicides by medical examiners. Even then, there is seldom any prosecution.
VII.
Whenever police departments or correctional facilities are perceived by the public as having done inexcusable crimes against humanity, the U.S. Justice Department is pressured to investigate and prosecute. Unfortunately, the Justice Department is itself criminal and has a tendency to conspire with officials who, like any other criminals, are most interested in hiding their crimes and avoiding prosecution and financial liability. Therefore, correctional institutions in the U.S. share similarities to the War on Terror camps where detainees suffered excruciating torture and some died. It is important to note, however, that whereas Guantanamo Bay detainees are/were allegedly terror suspects, most persons in U.S. jails and prisons are American citizens, a great number of whom have never been to trial for the criminal charges associated with their arrests. Such persons have a right to be presumed innocent.
VIII.
Correctional facilities warehouse hundreds of thousands of defendants who are jailed awaiting trial, mostly due to a lack of bail money, as well as convicted persons who plea bargained. Maya Schrenwar, managing editor of "Truthout," advises that the nation should eliminate bails altogether. Being coerced to waive trial and plea bargain is customary for defendants who lack the money for bail and a proper defense. Coercing plea bargains is particularly offensive regarding juveniles and mentally ill defendants. More than half of the nation's prisoners are actually Americans with mental disabilities, roughly 1.25 million inmates, most of whom were denied mental health care or treatment for drug and alcohol addictions until they were accused of crimes.
IX.
The high rate of in-custody deaths, especially among persons who were recently arrested, should alarm all Americans. Law officers can detain anyone up to a few days on mere suspicion without the need to actually file criminal charges. In addition, persons who have actually broken no laws are regularly booked on "resisting arrest" even without any evidence that the persons were initially subject to arrest. It is particularly disturbing when young women like Sandra Bland die in custody after what began as a traffic stop, something that can happen to anyone.
X.
It is apparent that nobody in the indigent or working class has a right to life that is actually protected in the United States, especially not people who are African Americans or mentally ill. Overuse of force incidents that used to target African American men now increasingly demand the lives of African American women and children. Caucasians who were largely exempt from overuse of force incidents and in-custody deaths until recently now seem to have lost their "white skin privilege." Even middle class whites like former college student Cameron Redus are killed by police, and white homemakers like Eileen Dinino inexplicably die immediately after arrest. Police brutality and in-custody deaths threaten everyone and deserve the attention of human rights advocates.
XI. 
One media company that is involved in an effort to fill the gap in reporting the number of deaths by police is The Guardian. I received an email invitation to share information about deaths by police and responded in the nine (9) paragraphs copied below:

XII. 
Response to The Guardian re “The Counted” - People Killed by USA Police
1. Increasingly, police arrest victims before killing them. That happened in 2003 in Memphis, Tennessee to my brother, Larry Neal. Larry was a schizophrenic heart patient who irritated police with his loud singing and panhandling in public places. In mid-July, he was secretly arrested, and police denied having him in custody when Larry's family and social worker made inquiries and completed the missing person report. However, police did nothing to help find the harmless middle aged mental patient, because they knew exactly where he was. After 18 days of secret arrest, Larry died. To this day, Larry's family is denied knowing the circumstances of his death: (a) sudden cessation of heart drugs, (b) restraint chair or table, (c) starvation, or (d) brutality. [Mentally ill inmates were killed by all of these methods in recent years.]
XIII.
2. The Memphis Shelby County Jail and the United States Department of Justice refuse to release the information about this American with mental and physical disabilities, because his "arrest" was actually a kidnapping, and his death was actually a planned euthanasia. In fact, Larry's brother had been told two weeks before Larry's kidnapping that police were "getting tired of fooling with Larry Neal." Larry had suffered numerous arrests in Shelby County Jail for disturbing the peace and other charges related to his severe mental illness, so it is impossible to believe he could not be matched with his fingerprints and the missing person report.
XIV.
3. Increasingly, killings of mentally ill Americans have become the nation's new eugenics program. From the 1930's to the 1970's, African Americans, very poor whites, and the mentally ill of all races underwent enforced sterilization to control their numbers. Today, these same groups are either killed under the color of law or mass incarcerated throughout their childbearing years, which also accomplished eugenicists' intention of population control among those groups.
XV
4. There continues to be a huge cover-up about Larry Neal's kidnapping and murder, because Shelby County Jail was operating under a Settlement Agreement with the USA after lawsuit for inmate abuse. Under the terms of the Agreement, the jail had an obligation to file an inmate fatality report with the feds for anyone who died in custody, but the USDOJ denies having received any information whatsoever related to Larry Neal's fatal arrest. Nevertheless, the USDOJ refused to investigate the cover-up. Years after being informed about Larry's murder, the Justice Department allowed Shelby County Jail to enter records in court hearings regarding its release from federal overview that again omitted Larry's death in custody.
XVI.
5. The hearings happened after the feds had communicated with me extensively about Larry Neal's in-custody death and after having received records of his demise. Therefore, the federal cover-up is definitely intentional. Three main parties are involved in the cover-up: Shelby County Government, the U.S. Justice Department, and The (Johnnie) Cochran Firm, which contracted with the Neals to act as Larry's wrongful death attorneys. The Cochran Firm's responsibility in the conspiracy was to keep Larry's murder out of the media and out of court, which the firm did through defrauding Larry's family as our wrongful death attorneys.
XVII.
6. The success of covering up police murders by first arresting victims has inspired increasing use of this method. Victims are arrested then eliminated after a short period in custody, i.e., Freddie Gray and perhaps Sandra Bland and Chavis Carter, and many others. Arresting people before killing them, as opposed to shooting or Tasing them to death before commuters with cameras, prevents public knowledge and outcry when videos are published, as happened after the killings of Oscar Grant, Eric Garner, Kelly Thomas, and many others. Cover-ups regarding in-custody killings are not foolproof, however. Witnesses who were jailed with Daniel Linsinbigler exposed his murder when Clay County Jail officials had falsely told his mother that the teenager was "found unresponsive in his cell." Linsinbigler's death was later ruled a homicide. Darren Rainey's murder by hot shower was also exposed to the media by fellow inmates.
XVIII.
7. Larry Neal's murder cover-up is most pathetic in that the federal government joined the conspiracy to cover-up his kidnapping and death rather than demanding justice. Larry's family has experienced significant surveillance, censorship, and financial persecution for attempting to expose the murder, obtain records, and due process of law.
XIX.
8. Thank you for conducting this survey of police killings. I hope you recognize that your findings will not be complete unless you include persons who were arrested first and killed within hours or weeks after arrest. That is the new modus operandi. For many more killings of mentally challenged Americans, I invite you to our blog, "Dog Justice for Mentally Ill," athttp://DogJusticeforMentallyIll.blogspot.com - More information and evidence is under the “documents” tab at “Wrongful Death of Larry Neal” website athttp://WrongfulDeathofLarryNeal.com/ - If you have questions about any of the deaths by police therein, I will be happy to try to put you in touch with the victims' families. You must be persistent if you call or email me. Both modes of communication are hacked, and police refuse to address the violations against my First Amendment rights. Email MaryLovesJustice@gmail.com
(The Guardian will not publish this news. The media helps the U.S. Government to cover-up certain wrongful deaths by police. Where did you think the missing trillions went?)
XX.
9. Link to my response to The Guardian:

XXI.
ENCOURAGEMENT. 
We congratulate journalists and human rights advocates for their interest in making America more "true to what she said on paper" (MLK). Documenting deaths by police is a good place to start. Our principle goal should be to have a nation where everyone's right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness are honored and protected. Fortunately, many police officers recognize the importance of better police oversight, including Blacks in Law Enforcement of America (BLEA).
XXII.
We are pleased that the largest association of sheriffs, NSA, supports assisted outpatient treatment (AOT) programs for mentally ill Americans, which provide subsistence assistance and mandated psychiatric treatment. In 2014, the International Association of Chiefs of Police also endorsed AOT programs to promote treatment before tragedies. We congratulate Congress for recently appropriating $15 million to fund AOT programs. AOT is included in H.R.2646 "Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act." It is encouraging that the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) recently issued a letter in support of H.R.2646 The congressional bill has bilateral support in the House but needs greater advocacy by the general public to make it law. Journalists are asked to please give H.R.2646 as much news coverage as other health care bills receive. Treatment can help reduce mass incarceration, and therefore deaths in custody, of mentally ill Americans.
XXIII. 
The U.S. Congress reduced the chances that anyone reading this article will have relatives "disappear" and die in jail without the in-custody deaths being reported, which happened to Larry Neal. The "Death in Custody Reporting Act of 2013" became law on December 18, 2014. ("There was a Death in Custody law on the books, but it somehow was allowed to expire in 2006. Why? Who knows?" - NonprofitQuarterly.com)
XXIV
PARTICIPATION. 
Together, we can see that this nation follows the United Nations' recommendation that the government "investigates promptly, thoroughly and impartially ALL deaths of detainees, assessing the health care received by inmates as well as any possible liability of prison personnel, and provide, where appropriate, adequate compensation to the families of the victims." Moreover, we can reduce the number of victims by applying due diligence. If you are able, please join us at the Georgia Capitol rally August 3 during lunchtime to learn more about in-custody brutality and deaths such as my mentally, physically disabled brother experienced.
XXV.
Everyone is invited to enter the fight to eliminate racism, class consciousness, and health discrimination from the legal system. If you are unable to attend, you can still participate by sending photographs and brief information about victims of in-custody brutality and deaths to me by email, preferably on one page. A donation for printing, copying, and distributing the information at the Capitol is needed. See XXVII below, entitled "Your financial assistance "
XXVI.
Local and state governments are encouraged to participate in reducing police brutality before and after arrests by ensuring that respect for citizens' rights and ethics are taught in police academies and enforced through prosecution of offending officers. Cover-ups only encourage more in-custody brutality and deaths. Local governments should also offer crisis intervention team (CIT) training to police and corrections officers. More funds should be allocated for AOT programs for persons with serious mental illnesses, especially prisoners who are reentering society. AOT program participation reduces homelessness, arrests, hospitalization, and future incarceration by over 85 percent, which means a significant increase in community safety and a substantial reduction in the budget for fighting crime and incarcerating offenders.
XXVII.
Your financial assistance is also invited. My computer equipment is regularly attacked by persons who disagree with the concept that all persons deserve equal protection under the law. My operating system was destroyed on July 3, after I informed the public that United States District Court, Central District of California, determined that neither The Cochran Firm nor any of its district offices qualify to be called "a law firm." You can help promote justice by contributing to the MaryLovesJustice fundraiser for a new computer and phone service three ways:

b) PayPal donations to MaryLovesJustice@gmail.com 
XXX.
c) Purchase "Bloody Toombs," by Bob Darby. Darby is an excellent writer and a lifelong human rights advocate, peace activist, and founder of the Atlanta chapter of "Food Not Bombs." Read a free preview at Amazon.com
http://www.amazon.com/Bloody-Toombs-Allegory-Bob-Darby/dp/1512301981 . The "Food Not Bombs" Atlanta chapter won an important federal court victory to feed homeless people in public places, including parks. Darby's memoir and allegory covers recent American history from the Jim Crow era to present. This brilliant man has bipolar disorder that has been in remission for over 20 years. He has always fought against racism, class consciousness, and avoidable wars. That caused many conflicts with his family and their affluent friends and guarantees interesting reading. The book is also available at CreateSpace https://www.createspace.com/5512374 - It will soon be released as a Kindle ebook.
XXXI.
Thanks in advance for your contributions to my communications fundraiser. Hackers often sabotage my individual articles, radio shows, and social media posts as revealed at channel jkempp703 at YouTube and "Justice Gagged" blog at http://JusticeGagged.blogspot.com - My computer's operating system was damaged beyond repair on July 3. Unfortunately, there is still a conspiracy to avoid disclosure and accountability for Larry Neal's 2003 kidnapping and arrest and to curtail my advocacy for similarly situated Americans.
XXXII.
Our rights under the U.S. Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights are actually goals. The fact that the Justice Department is complicit in Larry Neal's wrongful death cover-up proves how important it is for U.S. citizens to endeavor to make America true to her ideals. During release hearings for Memphis Shelby County Jail to exit federal overview, I notified the judge over the release hearings, the U.S. Attorney's office, and the USDOJ in Washington about Larry Neal's kidnapping and murder in that facility, and the crime was ignored by all parties, who entered the conspiracy of cover-up instead. Officials conspired against the USA by allowing fraudulent records into federal release hearings that deliberately omitted the in-custody death of an American with disabilities, and I have been sorely persecuted ever since in order to keep their crimes contained.
XXXIII.
This writer cannot say whether federal officials are paid by abusive police departments and correctional facilities to disregard their oversight responsibilities, as was alleged in the criminal indictments against former U.S. Vice President Dick Chaney and former U.S. Attorney General Antonio Gonzales in 2008, but one thing is certain: Abusive police departments and correctional facilities actually have no reliable oversight except by the People. Even China chastises America for its human rights abuses. Your participation is needed.
XXXIV.

The Kristopher Rodriguez Story


My son, Kristopher Rodriguez, is presently a mentally ill inmate at Lake Correctional Institution in Florida Inmate #C07499.

Kristopher was diagnosed with schizophrenia and paranoia in April 2001. Kristopher became ill when his maternal grandmother died on September 8, 2000, just four months after being diagnosed with bone cancer. She lived with me to help raise my sons: Stephen, Kristopher, and William. Kristopher was overwhelmed with grief upon losing his grandmother at age 14. He began talking about religion a great deal and disconnected my water heater, stating he was being trapped and followed. I first committed my son to Citrus Health Hialeah Florida by using the Baker Act.

Kristopher was born at Jackson Memorial Hospital on June 3, 1986. It was a normal delivery. Kristopher was an exceptional child. He on the principal's list or honor roll every semester since pre-K. He joined the Sea Cadets. He wanted to be a Navy Seal and a pediatrician. Kris also studied Tae Kwon Do. He told us that he felt his country needed him and that he wanted to be well prepared for the Navy Seals.

Kristopher was very involved in school activities, including painting, summer camps and sports. Kristopher won first place in every basketball activity. He achieved Male Honor Cadet of the United States at MacDill Air Force Base with Commander Recommendations. By that time, Kristopher had already won his black belt Tae Kwon Do.

Kristopher loves children and is very family oriented. Kristopher always showed love and compassion for people. He was beloved by his teachers and friends as well as his family. He was the child every mother dreams of having.

Upon losing my mother, Kristopher went into deep grief. He lost interest in the Sea Cadets and later dropped out of school. Soon after her death, Kristopher was voluntarily and then involuntarily committed to mental institutions. Unfortunately, Kristopher fell into our broken prison system due to his mental illness. I am a Cardiovascular Technologist, and I have worked in the medical field for 37 years. I understand the need for long-term medical care for chronic physical conditions, and psychiatric treatment for persons with mental illness should be just as accessible. Instead, incarceration was seemingly used to punish Kristopher for being sick when he got older.

Since 2008 in Polk County, Kristopher was committed several times and was even Tasered while in water during one of his crises. He has a long history of mental issues but his psychiatric condition was not followed and treated properly due to his noncompliance regarding his psychiatric medications. That is a typical problem for mentally ill people who want to avoid being stigmatized by their illness as well as those who do not recognize their own need for treatment.

Like many people with mental illness, Kristopher began to self-medicate with street drugs. During one of his drug buys, the dealer tried to rob Kristopher at gunpoint. He and Kristopher wrestled over the gun, and the dealer was shot in his leg. Kristopher's actions were self-defense. Persons with mental illness and drug dependencies need treatment, not incarceration.

While in jail at Polk County, Kristopher had a crisis and corrections officers thought he was faking. Kristopher shivering on the floor for 18 days, we learned through another inmate who was released. He said to my son, Stephen, "Do something for your brother. Tell your Mom they are abusing your brother. He is naked on the floor, and they pepper-sprayed him."

Of course we could do nothing. My family were not allowed to visit Kristopher. Every week we were denied visitation and received no information from the prison. "NO HIPPA FORM, he is an adult," we were told.

After that, Kristopher experienced one crisis after another. He tried to commit suicide and even tried to rip his penis off with his bare hands. Kristopher was evaluated and found to be mentally ill while incarcerated. Nevertheless, my son was so abused that he was forced to eat his own feces. The abuse only made him sicker. Several times while jailed before his conviction, Kristopher was sent to stabilization units. The justice system considered stabilizing my son as a priority before his conviction in order for the court to sentence him after trial and have Kristopher join 1.25 million mentally ill prisoners warehoused in jails and prisons throughout America.

Kristopher was eventually transferred to Dade Correctional Institute, where he has been tortured and abused. He was even tortured in the HOT SHOWER, which is how mentally ill inmate Darren Rainey was murdered in 2012. I was not allowed to visit with Kristopher for a lengthy period of time. By the time I was finally allowed to visit Kristopher, he could not recognized me, his own mother. Kristopher smelled bad, and I said to him, "Kris you don't smell good, son." Kristopher started looking around like he was paranoid and checking his environment for threats. "You are not my mom!" he screamed. "You are going to tell me about a Hot Shower, lady!" With tears in my eyes, I contacted Dr. Bermudez and Dr. Perez upon learning that my son had been Hot Showered. I also sent letters to the Inspector General's office, to Corizon, and to Deanna Tate, the director at Dade Correctional Institution. Nobody answered my correspondence. It seems that officials are always more interested in covering up abuse than in protecting inmates.

I wrote to Julie Brown at the Miami Herald. She came to take my report and do an interview. During our interview, I disclosed all of Kristopher's history with mental illness. I also showed the reporter Kristopher's family pictures and diplomas. She saw how his life was before mental illness.

Unfortunately, Kristopher's father died on April 18, 2013. Although Kristopher was pretty much stable at the time, he was not allowed to attend his father's funeral. Losing his father sent Kristopher back into another grieving period. Since then, his life has deteriorated daily. Kristopher was transferred from Dade Correctional Institution to Union on December 20 2014. Again, he was denied visitors.

My son has been in solitary confinement since 2013 because he refuses to accept medications, according to the prison. Corrections officers know that Kristopher is sick. Perhaps because of his illness, he experienced abuse.

Kristopher is sometimes catatonic and sometimes paranoid. Attorneys from Legal Disabilities visited Kristopher because his rights have been violated, and he refuses to consent to being legally represented. On March 4, I was contacted by Dr. Binskey at Union Correctional and advised that Kristopher was going to be transferred to Lake Correctional Institution due to his mental illness and catatonic state. He refused medications and food, also. Mr. Steven Crosby was Kristopher's intake Specialist. I demanded information on Kristopher, but his HIPPA form had expired.

I was advised by Mr. Crosby that the judge assigned me to be Kristopher's Healthcare Surrogate and that a copy of that assignment would be sent to me. However, on March 23, my son was transferred to Lake Correctional Institution. I check on a daily basis and saw it, I contacted a classification officer for my son. As of today, Ms. Jackson from Mental Unit refuses to give me information about Kristopher. She states there is no Healthcare Advocate form in his transfer.

I contacted Mr. Crosby and he said, "Yes, Madam, I requested Mr. Crosby to send it again." I explained the denial of information about my son from Ms. Jackson again last week, and she stated NO FORM was received via email, and she is very certain that it was not sent with his transfer.

I only trust GOD with my son's life. His status is unknown. I hold the State of Florida and the U.N. responsible for my son Kristopher Rodriguez's life. I will speak the truth to the world and will not keep my mouth shut. My son lives in solitary confinement, but he has a VOICE, and I AM HIS VOICE.

Some people at this time may not believe the torture that is inflicted on the mentally ill in this country, but Kristopher's circumstances are indicative of this problem. Thank you for your help. My cell phone number is (813)527-5148.

IN GOD I TRUST!

Gemma Pena, Kristopher's mom

Kristopher Rodriguez's Petition

Post Note: Gemma Pena was allowed to visit Kristopher on July 24, 2015. When the legal system reaches into a family and takes the most vulnerable member, entire families often suffer from Legal Abuse Syndrome. Parents sometimes experience stress that causes physical problems: strokes, heart attacks, and complications of their existing diseases. Younger siblings sometimes experience separation anxiety in their fear that one day they might also be forcibly removed from their parents and incarcerated. Fathers feel an impotent rage that they cannot protect their mentally disabled children from the system that too often uses mentally disturbed people for target practice or prison profiteering.

We hope that Gemma's visit with Kristopher was a good experience for them both, but they need regular visits - something for Kristopher to look forward to while alone in solitary confinement all week. It would give his mother the opportunity to help bring him out of his current crisis. She would encourage Kristopher to eat and accept his medication. That would be good for both of them and ultimately for all of us. Kristopher is due for release in a few years. He can either be ready to become a productive community member or not, depending on how Florida treats this young man whose crime was caused by mental illness.

Kristopher should be released from prison to the care of a mental hospital. Once he is stabilized, Kristopher should be ordered into an assisted outpatient treatment (AOT) program, where his subsistence needs would be met and he would be under a mandate to continue his psychiatric treatment. AOT program participants have a better than 85 percent chance of avoiding homelessness, future arrests, hospitalizations, and imprisonment. That means AOT programs also improve community safety and are less expensive than incarceration.

MayrLovesJustice Advocacy Fundraiser for AIMI

WHO are you helping when you give to MaryLovesJustice and "Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill"? Advocacy matters.

(1) You help families who need someone who really cares about their imprisoned relatives and sick people who are not in jail yet but have one foot on the proverbial banana peel.

(2) You help death row victims avoid execution, especially those who had extenuating circumstances or were mentally ill when they did the crime, and particularly those whose crime was not irrefutably proved.

(3) You help juveniles who were prosecuted and sentenced as adults.

(4) You help Blacks who are targeted in America's War on African Americans.

(5) You help in the fight against private prisons and jails - 21st century slavers.

(6) You help expose devious lawyers and corruption in our government.

(7) You help spread the true gospel of Christ, Whether you are a Christian or not, Jesus Christ was/is first and foremost a Human Rights Advocate. Nobody can say they follow Him who don't care about human suffering.

(8) You help people of all races to realize that elitists care nothing about any of us, no matter what race we are. They only want to rape the land and use people, especially poor and working class people.

(9) You help to expose Legal Victories. Yes, we have a few now and then. See our "Legal Victories" blog at Blogger.

(10) You help the wrongfully convicted. We give them a voice through radio broadcasts, articles, and social network posts.

(11) You help the homeless, for whom we advocate constantly.

(12) You help our young people to know that no matter how bleak things look, there are people like you and me who work together to improve life for us all.

Did you read "Think and Grow Rich"? The author suggested that one has only to find a need that nobody is fulfilling, then do it yourself. Well, he lied. When I began advocating for prisoners, especially the mentally ill inmates, almost nobody was doing that. I found only Lee Wood​ when I looked online to see who was fighting against private prisons and jails in 2008 (I did not know until then that privatized jails and prisons existed). When I researched for someone who advocated for subsistence and mandated treatment for mentally ill people, I found only Treatment Advocacy Center​ and Dj Jaffe​. I did not know until finding them that my proposal had already been tried and that it had a name: Assisted Outpatient Treatment (AOT) -- wildly successful, but very underfunded and under-used. That is because prison investors make America's decisions about prison reform.

Because of prison investors and corrupt lawyers, I did not grow rich from filling the need nobody else was undertaking at the time: the need to decriminalize mental illness. In fact, I got poor as heck. The mentally ill comprise over half of America's prisoners, and the prison companies and investors were NOT willing to sacrifice their big bucks because they were victimizing sick people. They do not value human life above their stock portfolios. They continually destroy my computers, block my job prospects by stealing my emails, and actually sent people to follow me wherever I went. Police refused to help. I was so shocked by the intimidation that I allowed myself to be laid off from a legal assistant position that paid well, because from one to six cars would follow me home from work every single night. I did not know in 2008 that judges would prevent my Wrongful Death of Larry Neal lawsuit from going before a jury or that hackers would block my communication with other potential employers! Such blatant crimes under a so-called black administration! Who could have imagined it?

Because of criminals' interference and intimidation, I mostly stay home doing advocacy work full-time, which I enjoy immensely. The pay is the thanks I get from families, the wonderful friends I meet, and the lessons I learned. That would be enough, but to continue, we need new computers, the ability to print documents, a land line that is less accessible to hackers than my cellphone, money for computer techs when "they" attack my computers, and more. When you contribute to MaryLovesJustice and "Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill," you actually contribute to all of twelve(12) causes named in the first paragraph. But mostly, you contribute to making society more humane and safe for all of us. Almost every prisoner -- mentally ill or not -- has a release date in his file. As Dorothea Dix said, nobody is made better because he/she is tortured. Incarceration is sometimes necessary for some inmates, but never over-sentencing, brutality or execution. We advocate for treatment, not prison for the mentally ill and also human rights for all inmates. Treating people decently and offering education and rehabilitation makes them more capable of being good neighbors after prison release.

In 2007, although I searched extensively, I found very few voices against incarcerating mentally ill people in the USA, but many organizations were fighting zealously against the death penalty. Our anti-dp organization is called the Davis-MacPhail Truth Committee. Most anti-dp organizations try to appeal to hardhearted people's sense of compassion. Newsflash: Elite white supremacists have no compassion; their god is money. It costs up to $90,000 per year more to hold each inmate on death row than to warehouse him/her in the general prison population. The Davis-MacPhail Truth Committee usually addresses the financial burden that killers make taxpayers carry because they are so money-hungry and bloodthirsty. If executioners were not so mercenary, they would kill death row inmates long before the average prisoner is killed - from 10 years to 30 years after sentencing. But prison investors keep condemned people alive on death row for decades, not out of compassion but to make more money. That is good news, because most people who are finally exonerated were imprisoned for a very long time. If condemned people were executed sooner, America would kill many more innocent people. Honest judges admit that America sometimes executes innocent people. I advocate for LAWSUITS after each execution if any reason at all can be found to sue. Make executions MUCH more expensive and get more media exposure by suing. Anti-DP organizations should sue after mentally ill people are executed. Sue after potentially innocent people are executed, especially if DNA tests were denied. Sue after guilty people are executed if the execution was torturous. Sue, sue, sue. Lawsuits mean significantly more to killers than candlelight vigils do. I believe the key to ending executions to to make them more expensive through lawsuits.

Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill​ and the Human Rights for Prisoners March and the Davis-MacPhail are YOUR advocacy organizations. "Human Rights Demand" and "NNIA1" are YOUR radio channels at Blogtalkradio. It was already too late to help my brother when I started them. Everybody is hosted there, including African Americans, Caucasians, Latinos, Native Americans, professionals as well as uneducated people, so-called sane people as well as individuals labeled mentally ill. In July 2015, I began asking for your financial support after hackers destroyed the operating system in my computer. I should have asked for your help sooner, because some of you are happy to share. This work is for ALL of us, and it is only right for you to help support it. There are three ways to assist us. Please search online in your Google browser for "MaryLovesJustice Fundraiser" to find out how to give, or search for "MaryLovesJustice GoFundMe." Otherwise, you could just take a moment to send a contribution via PayPal to my email box at MaryLovesJustice@gmail.com. Use that same email box, everyone who needs our assistance. Please call (678)531-0262 or email me. IF hackers allow me to receive your emails or phone calls, I'll be there for you for as long as I am in advocacy work. I am not an attorney, but sometimes exposing your circumstances online brings improvement. I love helping you because I love you, and I need you to love me back. Be fair and please share.

I was drafted for advocacy work by the secret arrest and murder of my mentally, physically disabled brother and suffering fraud by devious lawyers (Google "Wrongful Death of Larry Neal" and "Cochran Firm Fraud"). Many human rights activists were similarly drafted. That seems to be how people are recruited to fight against the prison industrial complex, avoidable wars, government and judicial corruption, etc. Most of the best human rights advocates I know are people who can empathize with victims because they have been personally impacted.

My brother will have been dead 12 years on August 1, and I have given you 12 good reasons to support our advocacy that began after his death. You will not receive a tax deduction by supporting our advocacy work this year, but you'll get lots of e-hugs. To those of you who already supported our first fundraiser in ten years of advocacy by sending funds to MaryLovesJustice at GoFundMe or via PayPal or by purchasing a copy of "Bloody Toombs," by Bob Darby - a thoroughly entertaining and important memoir and allegory, you have our appreciation for helping to finance this advocacy work​. As one victimized American to another, thanks for your participation.

Like everything else I write, our fundraisers are apparently censored by some sites. Facebook friends say they had not seen the invitation to help until actually visiting my MaryLovesJustice wall; the invitation seems not to appear on people's home pages. Even if you are not able to help financially with our work, please assist us by sharing the link to our fundraisers. Search for the links as discussed three paragraphs above, or use the urls that will be added below.

James Kilgore: Mental Illness and Jails

An article was published by James Kilgore, writing in Prisoner News, which laid out problems caused by criminalizing mental illness in the USA. The writer got my complete attention with his statement that "no Dorothea Dix figure has emerged in 2015." This implies that decision makers have begun to reconsider the wrongful denial of timely mental health treatment and incarceration of over a million sick Americans on their own, when nothing could be further from the truth. I wrote Kilgore and informed him of the tremendous effort by over 1,400 members of Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill (AIMI) and other organizations, courageous families, and prisoner activists to decriminalize mental illness. Like any other chronic ailment, mental conditions must be treated and stop being considered criminal. Homelessness, prison, and death must cease being America's response to serious mental illness. See my response to Kilgore below:

Mr. Kilgore:

Thank you for your article regarding prisons replacing treatment for mental illness in the USA. You wrote, "Though no Dorothea Dix figure has emerged in 2015, at long last policy makers and researchers are waking up to the issue." The idea that prison investors and other decision makers would simply "wake up" to an issue is not true. Through much censorship and intimidation, my advocacy organization continues to fight to highlight the problems of mentally ill people and their families for the past ten years. See "Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill," a/k/a "The Dorothea Dix Group." We have been operating for ten years online and less in person. In 2003, my brother, Larry Neal, a lifelong mentally ill heart patient, was secretly arrested and murdered on the 18th day of secret incarceration in Memphis Shelby County Jail in Tennessee. The disregard for this black man from his government was so total that to this day - nearly 12 years later, his family is still denied the right to know under what circumstances he died and why he was arrested. In fact, because Larry died in custody in a jail that was already under federal overview after lawsuit by the USA, the USDOJ is actually involved in his murder cover-up rather than attempting to bring justice. See http://WrongfulDeathofLarryNeal.com/main.html and visit our blog "Dog Justice for Mentally Ill" at the first of six (6) AIMI urls below.

Through thousands of very graphic articles, emails, and radio broadcasts featuring psychologists, psychiatrists, and families of abused and murdered mentally ill inmates, AIMI continues to make torturous incarceration and wrongful deaths of mentally ill people impossible for any official to ignore. This causes great discomfort for both officials and myself, as my computer equipment is continually compromised or destroyed, my phone calls are often prevented, and messages are stolen from my voice mail service and my email boxes. We take these attacks as compliments to the work that we do at Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill (AIMI). 

No effective human rights movement has ever experienced decision makers "waking up to the issue" and showing a willingness to change. That did not happen regarding slavery, women's suffrage, the labor movement, nor the civil rights era. Any change you applaud regarding attitudes about mentally ill people having a right of treatment rather than incarceration must be credited to Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill, Mental Health Policy Organization, Treatment Advocacy Center, and many other fine advocates and prisoner rights activists and tenacious family members who continually strive against forces who profit from the arrests of Americans with mental disabilities. Most do this advocacy work with little or no budgets. AIMI is the only one of those named that deals exclusively with incarcerated mentally ill people and reducing the risks of incarceration through timely treatment - either in mental hospitals or community care, depending on the patient's offenses and ability to survive outside of a controlled environment. That is why our group is also called "The Dorothea Dix Group."

AIMI recommends H.R. 2646, "Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis," a mental health care bill introduced in Congress in 2015 by Rep. Tim Murphy (R-PA) and Rep. Eddie Murphy (D-TX), and the bill enjoys bilateral support from numerous congresspersons. More exposure for this important bill is needed. Please mention it in your next article regarding mental health care. We applaud the fact that the U.S. Congress recently appropriated $15million for assisted outpatient treatment (AOT) programs, which were certified by the USDOJ a few years ago but not funded. We believe that America's response to its mental health care crisis should be AOT programs (subsistence assistance and mandated treatment) and crisis intervention team (CIT) training for police and corrections officers, so they will learn how to deal with mentally ill people, of whom 1.25 million are prisoners. Furthermore, HIPPA laws should be relaxed for close family members of mentally ill people confined behind bars or in hospitals so that families and advocates will know their conditions and treatment to better advocate for their appropriate care. 

Thank you for helping to call attention to the issues faced by the mentally ill behind bars. I hope you will relay information about the tremendous effort of advocates and families of the mentally ill in your future articles so the world will understand that "power concedes nothing without a demand; it never has, and it never will" (Frederick Douglass). In fact, AIMI plans to sue the USA in International Court in 2015 on behalf of up to 100 mentally ill people and families who suffered brutality and wrongful deaths of mental patients. We invite you to call-in and participate on our Wednesday night AIMI broadcasts at Blogtalkradio at 9pmPST. Dial (818)572.2947, if you can schedule the time. 

We feel that nothing helps officials "wake up" like lawsuits. Dorothea Dix was a plaintiff in numerous lawsuits on behalf of the incarcerated mentally ill during her advocacy. Whereas the indigent mentally ill were regularly warehoused in brutal jail environments before Ms. Dix began her work, fewer than one percent of America's inmates were mentally ill persons by the time she retired. One reason for her success was that there were no private prison owners and investors serving on the state legislatures in the 1800's when Dix petitioned officials to change. We work to make mental health care reform a campaign issue in 2016. Officials should declare their stance on the human rights abuse of imprisoning Americans with mental disabilities. Examination should be made of stock portfolios and political contributions to officials who do not support H.R.2646 "Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act" in order to learn which officials are prison investors and receive contributions from private prison companies. We believe that private prison investors should divest or resign.

Now you know the truth. There is "a Dorothea Dix figure" which has emerged in the 21st century, and we are many. Hear radio broadcasts and see blogs carrying hundreds of articles around these issues at the six urls below. Most of the articles carry graphic photographs, videos, and interviews about brutality and wrongful deaths:

AIMI Fundraiser: "Bloody Toombs," by Bob Darby

Announcement: "Bloody Toombs," by Bob Darby has been published! Please order a copy today at CreateSpace. "Bloody Toombs," is a book that informs, entertains, and inspires readers as we travel though turbulent time periods in recent American history observing life through the eyes of Darby, a gifted writer who is a human rights advocate, antiwar activist, and bipolar man. Share the link, please
Thank you for including "Bloody Toombs" on your summer reading list!

Travel with Darby through the segregated South of the 1960's, where he grew up, largely raised by his family's African American housekeeper, Maudie Mae. Darby's strong stance against racism and the Vietnam War often put him at odds with some of his elite family members and close friends. Accompany Darby to the Ivy League schools where he was enrolled as a graduate student: Tufts and Harvard. Go with Darby to antiwar demonstrations during the hippy era, when the advent of the pill led to "make love, not war" slogans. Experience Darby's crises and suicide attempts caused by his manic depression. Darby was usually aware that he was spiraling out of control but was completely unable to stop it. Learn from a masterful writer, whose undergraduate degree is in psychology, what that was like. 

At age 70, Darby has now enjoyed over 20 years of remission from bipolar episodes, thanks to psychiatric advancements. Darby founded the Atlanta chapter of Food Not Bombs. He wrote, "From 1994 until 2012, our small and informal band of unpaid volunteers served tens of thousands of free hot meals to Atlanta's hungry and homeless on sidewalks, in city parks, and in public shelters. For the first ten years of Atlanta Food Not Bombs, we did all of the cooking out of my own kitchen, serving more than five hundred meals of soup, rice, bread, salad, and fresh fruit." 

This year, Darby traveled to Washington, D.C. for SOA Watch meetings, and he attended the 50th anniversary of "Bloody Sunday" in Selma, Alabama. He remains committed to fighting racism, avoidable wars, and homelessness, particularly among the mentally ill. 

Part of "Bloody Toombs" sales proceeds will help give Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill. Your purchase of "Bloody Toombs" supports AIMI's first fundraiser in eight years of operation. 

"Bloody Toombs" is a book that illustrates what happens when mental illness occurs in a family of means. Darby was a very intelligent young man who won full scholarships to two of the nation's best schools. But neither Darby's intelligence nor money from Darby's father, a judge, and his uncle, a banker, or the fact that they had influential friends could save Darby from experiencing psychotic episodes that led to hospitalizations, homelessness and jail. "Bloody Toombs" also demonstrates that mental illness is highly treatable, especially with the improvements in drug therapies that helped Darby gain stability and maintain it for over two decades, enabling him to make valuable contributions to society as a writer and human rights advocate. 


Homelessness, prison, and avoidable deaths must cease being America’s response to serious mental illness. AIMI thanks you in advance for purchasing "Bloody Toombs," an important memoir and allegory that we hope is successful like other great literature that takes readers through important periods of American history while relating personal stories: "Forest Gump" and "Having Our Say: The Delany Sisters' First 100 Years." We know you will enjoy reading "Bloody Toombs" and gain insight about social and ethical issues of universal application and concern. We hope you will write a review about this book at Amazon, where it will also be available within days.

Thank you for helping to give Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill through your purchase of "Bloody Toombs," by Bob Darby.

"Bloody Sunday" 50th anniversary in Selma, Alabama, May 2015
Thank you for your order of "Bloody Toombs."

Killing Mentally Ill Georgians Is Habitual

Mentally challenged people are regularly killed in Georgia with or without a death warrant. Brandon Rhode died a horrendous, torturous death by execution -- killed by lethal injection drugs imported from behind a British bicycle shop. The young man was born with fetal alcohol syndrome. He lived a short, troubled life before being charged with murder and sentenced to death. Brandon was so afraid that he tried to commit suicide by cutting his own throat days before his execution. But Brandon failed and died a slow, brutal death on Georgia's execution table. Numerous other mentally challenged Georgians have been similarly put down like rabid dogs since Brandon, who is pictured below. See the wound on his neck from his failed suicide.

Killings of mentally ill people happen outside of prisons and jails, also. The nation was saddened this spring by the death of a U.S. Air Force veteran who went jogging naked. Because Anthony Hill, 27, was naked, it should have been obvious to DeKalb County Police Officer Robert Olsen that Hill had no weapon. It should have been possible for police officers to capture Hill without lethal force, but Olsen shot Hill and then used the universally accepted words: "I feared for my life." That explanation is especially effective killings of unarmed mental patients, it seems. It is as though eugenicists have ordered police to kill mentally ill Americans, including our veterans whose minds were affected in service to their country. See Hill, who was killed for streaking, in a photo below.
Murder of Matthew Ajibade, a bipolar computer science student, in police custody, and cover-up 
http://www.nationofchange.org/2015/06/06/students-death-in-custody-ruled-a-homicide-after-9-deputies-fired/
The death of a 21-year-old computer science student in police custody has been ruled a homicide from blunt force trauma and has resulted in the termination of nine deputies who strapped him to a restraining chair on New Year’s Day 2015 and allegedly beat him to death. Although the county attorney’s office initially claimed that the deputies were fired last month (April 2015) for general policy violations, the coroner confirmed that the deputies lost their jobs on the same day that he signed the student’s death certificate. The student’s family only became aware of the death certificate’s existence after a photograph of the document was leaked on social media. Ajibade lived in an Atlanta suburb. His girlfriend reportedly told police that Ajibade had been diagnosed as having bipolar disorder three years ago, and that was probably why he was murdered.
I found it especially unacceptable for Georgia to execute Warren Hill. Hill allegedly killed his cellmate by bashing his head with a board of wood with nails driven through it. How did Hill get such a weapon in a controlled environment? Why did the mentally ill killer even have a cellmate? (Hill was incarcerated after doing another murder.) Hill was not the first mentally ill man in Georgia to kill his cellmate. It also happened in DeKalb County Jail a few years ago. I fear that if this trend continues to be successful, inmates the prison guards dislike will be matched with homicidal mental patients like Hill, who are equipped with deadly weapons that nobody accounts for them having.

Like all metropolitan areas in America, mentally ill citizens in the Atlanta area are being killed behind bars and on our streets, with or without due process of law. Because I write reports about these deaths, my computers and phones are attacked. I suspect this is done by DeKalb County Police, since they flatly refused to trace the IP addresses I gave police on a complaint, thinking that they would locate and charge the hackers. Instead, a DeKalb County Detective Miller told me it is NOT illegal to takeover my computers and phones, preventing incoming and outgoing calls, steal my emails, and steal documents from my computer's hard drive. This interference worsens as I complain rather than decreasing. I know of no exception to Americans' First Amendment rights if those rights are used to advocate for alternatives to homelessness, imprisonment, and deaths of mentally ill people. 

I just wrote tweets to DeKalb County's acting CEO Lee May and told him how disturbing I find my computer and phone sabotage to be. I had written to the prior CEO, also, via emails. After receiving no response, I went to the DeKalb County Government building to apply for a meeting with Ellis in person. Burrell Ellis gave the impression of ignoring me, but I don't think he did. In fact, the day after I tried to see Ellis, two police officers arrived at my home with a mental health worker to threaten me not to ever tell police superiors about police ignoring my complaints. That was a rude, outright violation against my civil rights if not a criminal violation of the public trust. I think Ellis sent them. Officials like to pretend not to know about my illegal oppression, especially those who have a duty to correct such conditions once they know about them. Ellis faces incarceration himself at this time on charges for other corruption. God fights for righteousness. 

Georgia pretends to be proud of one of its most famous native sons - Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., who spent his adult life urging America to "be true to what she said on paper" and honor the human and civil rights of all its citizens. He organized pickets and marches throughout the South and in Washington, D.C. to alert the world to how African Americans were being treated sub-human. When I went downtown Atlanta in 2010 and stood on the corner of Auburn Avenue, the street where Dr. King was born, where it intersects with Peachtree Street, I warned my people that The Cochran Firm frauds had been awarded a dismissal in "Neals v. The Cochran Firm" on the supposition that the Atlanta office, where I served suit, was not a Cochran Firm office. I told passers-by about my mentally ill brother's lynching, which The Cochran Firm's deliberately prevented from going to court, although the firm was under contract to work in the Neals' interests. 

I picketed there because The Cochran Firm was again in the position to defraud a black family in a wrongful death by police case, the murder of 92-year-old Kathryn Johnston, who Atlanta police killed in a home invasion in 2006. Black police officers arrived and threatened me, telling me I'd better get my ass home before they Taser and arrest me. When I complained to officials, the city's mayor, Kasim Reed, and mostly black administrators told me they thought the police did the right thing. In Nazi Germany, elders were killed right along with the 300,000 mentally ill people of all races, in order to make an "efficient nation." I have proof that the Kathryn Johnston case was also mishandled.

One of the main reasons for my surveillance and violations against my First Amendment rights probably happen is because I exposed The Cochran Firm fraud against African Americans. The Cochran Firm defrauded my family while under contract as our wrongful death attorneys for my handicapped brother, Larry Neal. We then sued for malpractice and fraud, but The Cochran Firm committed perjury which was accepted by two Atlanta, Georgia courts - Georgia Superior Court and United States District Court (USDC). The firm claimed not to have any law offices at all in Georgia. Now The Cochran Firm is in California courts conflicting its own statements made in the Georgia courts. It claims in California that all Cochran Firm offices are one firm. I believe The Cochran Firm may be a continuation of the CoIntelPro program, whose mandate was to "keep wealth out of black hands." Central California USDC pronounced on May 12, 2015, that The Cochran Firm is NOT a law firm. That should end the covert racism against its own clients by these officers of the court. See the court order below in the article below: "Cochran Firm Fraud Fails in California Court"
http://freespeakblog.blogspot.com/2015/06/cochran-firm-fraud-fails-in-ca-court.html


I continue to advocate for mentally ill Americans, who are treated like the "least among us, His brethren." It is dangerous to threaten the prison industrial complex, which makes most of its $100billion per year by imprisoning America's mentally ill citizens. Therefore, I report anything that makes me uncomfortable but usually not in this blog, which might be read by persons who are particularly sensitive regarding this issue - mentally ill Americans and their families. I felt very uncomfortable when a U.S. Marshal came to my house and warned me about a murder suspect with an automatic weapon he claimed was living two doors away from me, and I made the report in my "FreeSpeakBlog". The marshal could not explain why he did not search the house he spoke about or why the Government felt I should receive a direct warning while none of my neighbors were warned. It seemed to be more government intimidation.
http://freespeakblog.blogspot.com/2014/01/murderous-dramatization-staring-mary.html

I continue to struggle for satisfactory closure regarding my personal justice quest regarding the secret arrest and wrongful death of my mentally, physically disabled brother, Larry Neal, who was murdered in Memphis Shelby County Jail in 2003 after 18 days of secret arrest. At AIMI, we continue to advocate for 1.25 million mentally ill Americans behind bars who should be in hospitals or community care under assisted outpatient treatment (AOT) programs. It is very difficult to do this work with inadequate equipment. I noted today that my cellphone cannot take pictures (a new phone), and my computer is being attacked more frequently. I object to these intrusions against my human and civil rights, and I am not afraid to object all the way to the United Nations. When people anywhere are being targeted for isolation and murdered en masse, as mentally ill people are in the United States, it should be addressed by the United Nations and all world citizens. See "AIMI vs. USA" online.

To increase security, I immediately share whatever happens with the public via Internet. I will continue to do that at least until the Trans-Pacific Partnership Act (TPP) deletes Americans' freedom of press online. Then we will find other ways to communicate. Slaves did, civil rights advocates did in the 1960's, and so will we find alternative methods to give Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill. This work will continue, no matter who objects to mentally ill Americans having human rights. As I have told CoIntelPro repeatedly, I am not their slave.
