Imprisoned Two Years without Trial

NOTE: Please see the update at the end of this article. Good news for justice!

IMPRISONED FOR TWO YEARS WITHOUT  TRIAL! Travis Firecloud, a Native American, is in Hughes County Jail at 3100 E. Hwy., 34 Pierre St., South DeKota, zip 57501, phone (605)773-7475. His sister, Janice Howe, says Travis does not have a prison I.D. number because he's never been found guilty of anything.

DOG JUSTICE FOR THE MENTALLY ILL

Janice Howe invites emails from people who can help at mz_j_adrian@live.com. She describes her brother's situation:

I have an adopted brother who is mentally retarded FAS, with an I.Q. of 62. Travis was falsely accused in federal court of aggravated sexual abuse of a child. Travis has no blood relatives. My mother raised him. After Travis came of age, he stayed with my parents and helped with all children, not ever hurting anyone. After arrest, he went all over the United States to be evaluated, only to be given the same diagnoses that the psychologist had given my mother: Travis is of no danger to anyone. He just returned from Butner, North Carolina. Psychiatrists recommended for Travis to be released from custody. Authorities would release him to someone who has no children, but everyone has children. Travis has been held for two years and one month.

My mother passed away on August 12, 2012. They didn't even allow Travis out for the funeral. It is a sad situation. We are Native Americans, and the system is prejudice against us. We have no money to help Travis, and he has no money.

******
The entire country is upset about provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that give the White House the ability to intern people indefinitely under military arrest without criminal charges or any opportunity for defense. On September 12, 2012, a federal court issued a permanent injunction against indefinite detention without due process. However, this is how many of America's mentally challenged people live. It is unacceptable to warehouse the nation's most vulnerable citizens in jails and prisons, but 1.25 million mentally challenged people awoke behind bars today. In fact, over 60% of inmates in cruel solitary confinement are mentally ill. They should be in hospitals or in community care programs, depending on their offenses and functionality. Travis and over a million other mentally challenged Americans are behind bars for PRISON PROFITS. Their human and civil rights are continually trampled. My own mentally ill brother was killed while under secret arrest for nearly three weeks in Memphis Shelby County Jail http://WrongfulDeathOfLarryNeal.com . Our family is denied any records or investigation. That proves mentally ill people, particularly minorities, are considered by their government to deserve no protection, even for the right to life.
