WTF! Yellowstone Photo Could Get You 1 Year In Prison Under New Wyoming Law. Thousands of Americans Have Been Illegally Detained in Chicago’s CIA-Style Detention Center. By Carey Wedler The Chicago Police’s CIA-style black site, Homan Square, has seen more people detained than died on 9/11 or imprisoned at Guantanamo, according to a new report by the Guardian.

Thousands of Americans Have Been Illegally Detained in Chicago’s CIA-Style Detention Center

The newspaper, which sued the Chicago police to obtain further details on Homan Square, reports overwhelming targeting of minorities as well as other sordid and violative policies. From 2004 to 2015, at least 3,500 people were detained at Homan Square. These records do not cover the full span of the facility’s tenure, as it has been open since 1995. According to the Guardian, a grossly disproportionate ratio of detainees were minorities, “many accused of low-level drug crimes, [and] faced with incriminating themselves before their arrests appeared in a booking system by which their families and attorneys might find them.”

The majority of arrests were for low-level drug crimes. Though blacks make up 33% of Chicago’s population, 82% of those detained at Homan Square were black. Man Arrested, Charged with Multiple Felonies for Telling Jurors About Their Rights. By Carey Wedler Last week, a Denver man was arrested and charged with multiple felonies, but not for stealing, committing fraud, or engaging in violent crime.

Man Arrested, Charged with Multiple Felonies for Telling Jurors About Their Rights

He was targeted for attempting to educate jurors about their rights in the courtroom. Mark Ianicelli, 56, set up a table outside of Lindsay-Flanigan Courthouse in Denver in order to educate jurors about jury nullification. Jury nullification is the process by which members of juries can nullify unjust laws by finding defendants charged with them not guilty. Ianicelli is charged with tampering with a jury, a felony in Colorado that carries a minimum bond of $5,000. The practice was first used in America in 1735 to exonerate a man of libel charges after he printed unflattering statements about the Governor of New York (a British colony at the time). The United States’ first Chief Justice, John Jay, once told jurors, “You have a right to take upon yourselves to judge [both the facts and law].”

The Modernized Slave Labor System: Also Known as the Prison Industrial Complex. How Much Have American Taxpayers Really Paid for Police Brutality? By Amanda Warren Americans have paid a lot for the radicalized and militarized policing.

How Much Have American Taxpayers Really Paid for Police Brutality?

The taxpayers pay through federal grants like the 1033 program that supplies small town police with MRAPs and other gear or they my have their assets seized through civil asset forfeiture. But, until now, we have been blissfully unaware of how much police brutalization or bad policing has truly cost the taxpayer. Indeed, when brutalization occurs and the city must defend itself in a case or pay out a settlement - who is really paying? Prison labor’s new frontier: Artisanal foods. Some years back, a small Colorado goat-cheese maker called Haystack Mountain faced its version of a classic growth challenge: National demand was growing for its chèvres and other cheeses, and the company was struggling to find enough local goat farmers to produce milk.

Prison labor’s new frontier: Artisanal foods

The solution came from a surprising source: Colorado Corrections Industries (CCI). Today six inmates milk 1,000 goats twice a day on a prison-run farm. After non-inmate employees cultivate the cheese at a company facility, it’s sold in Whole Foods WFM -0.89% outlets, among other stores. Prison labor has gone artisanal. Sure, plenty of inmates still churn out government office furniture and the like, and incarcerated workers have occasionally been used by large companies since the late 1970s. 23 Cents an Hour?

23 Cents an Hour? The Perfectly Legal Slavery Happening in Modern Day America

The 13th amendment to the Constitution states that "neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction. " Prison Labor is Industry’s “Best Kept Secret in Outsourcing” and What Has Killed Your Job. Mac SlavoActivist Post There’s “free trade.”

Prison Labor is Industry’s “Best Kept Secret in Outsourcing” and What Has Killed Your Job

There’s “fair trade.” And then there’s what’s really happening. The realities of globalization have made the price of labor somewhere between rock bottom and worthless. Since the days of NAFTA, the WTO and a flood of cheap Chinese goods, major corporations – American-based and all the rest — have offshored production, taking advantage of virtual slave labor and the only edge that this kind of competition brings.

Rich Heir Rapes His 3 Year-Old Daughter, Gets No Jail Time Because He 'Will Not Fare Well' In Prison

Richards IV does not work. He doesn’t have to. The great-grandson of Irénée du Pont, the chemical magnate who provided much of the financial backing to a failed effort to defeat Franklin Delano Roosevelt during the 1930s, Richards lives off a trust fund in a 5,800 square foot mansion he bought for $1.8 million. When he is not staying in his mansion, he might be found in his beach home “in the exclusive North Shores neighborhood near Rehoboth Beach.” Richards is also a child rapist. In 2005, Richards started sexually abusing his three year-old daughter. And yet, Robert Richards, who raped his own child and then told her not to tell anyone so that it could be “our little secret,” will likely not spend a day in prison.

By Lily Dane Kalief Browder, the young man who was held for years in New York’s Rikers Island prison as a teen without trial or conviction, killed himself on Saturday. In 2014, Jennifer Gonnerman of The New Yorker brought attention to Browder’s plight with her poignant article titled "Before the Law. " Browder ended up in one of America’s most corrupt and violent prisons after being accused – at age 16 – of stealing a backpack on May 15, 2010.

Because his family was unable to raise his $10,000 bail and because of repeated court delays and an overwhelmed system, Browder was forced to endure three years of hell – including beatings and deprivation of food – at Rikers Island waiting for a trial that never happened. He refused to accept several plea deals on principle, maintaining his innocence throughout his entire ordeal. Un-Reasonable: Feds Declare War on Blog Commenters. By Thomas Knapp I’ve previously written about Ross Ulbricht, an American political prisoner sentenced to life for the “crime” of running a business without the US government’s permission.

Among libertarians, the response to Ulbricht’s abduction and show trial has been, in some cases, less than polite and temperate. Now, the state is moving against its critics. Last week, as Ken White of Popehat reports, the US Department of Justice served Reason — a popular libertarian magazine and web site — with a grand jury subpoena demanding that it provide “any and all identifying information” it possesses regarding certain commenters on reporter Nick Gillespie’s coverage of Ulbricht’s sentencing. Some of those commenters, it seems, waxed less than respectful of Katherine Forrest, the thug — er, “judge” — who ratified Ulbricht’s abduction and ordered it extended for life.

JUAN GONZÁLEZ: We turn now to the case of Albert Woodfox, who has been in solitary confinement for 40 years. That’s right, 40 years, most of that time locked up in the notorious maximum security Louisiana state penitentiary known as Angola. This week, after his lawyers spent six years arguing that racial bias tainted the grand jury selection in Woodfox’s prosecution, federal Judge James Brady agreed.

USA Today Sports' Martin Rogers discusses the latest news surrounding the USWNT goalkeeper's past. A federal judge in Louisiana has ordered the release of a man who sat in solitary confinement in prison for 43 years, prompting the man's lawyer to say justice has been achieved.

Essential vocabulary for surviving the police state: 'Nickel Rides' (NaturalNews) Was the late Freddie Gray, the Baltimore man whose death in police custody recently led to days of riots in the city, a victim of a police tactic aimed at exacting punishment on suspects without officers ever laying a hand on them? As new evidence surrounding Gray's case becomes public, it appears as though he might have been given a "nickel ride," a term used to describe a police torture tactic where suspects are placed in the back of a police car without restraints and then driven around recklessly.

Some call them "cowboy rides" or "rough rides. " The Baltimore Sun stated that when State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby charged six city police officers with Gray's death, she noted that they drove him around for about 45 minutes while ignoring his pleas for medical attention.
