This column, posted initially on prisonradio.org, first appeared on workers.org on Jan. 4, 2017. For Dylann Roof, the next few days and weeks of his young life will prove his most memorable. That’s saying something, considering his slaughter of nine sweet souls in a Black Charleston church.Mumia Abu-JamalFor, in the next few days and weeks, a jury will convene to decide whether he gets a death sentence or life.As someone who lived a lifetime on Death Row, my opposition is unequivocal. Even in a case such as this, my opposition to the State taking life doesn’t falter. Even in this case, of a witless white supremacist, a killer of nine Black Christian souls.If I know anything, it’s Death Row. I’ve seen it drive men stark raving mad.That said, my one opinion carries no real weight in this case, for unless I miss my guess, no juror will ever hear these words. They will decide Roof’s fate after he delivers his own closing arguments, which will hardly endear him to his jurors.A death verdict for Roof strengthens the repressive powers of the State and gives it the false patina of “justice.” If a death sentence fails, it helps show the inherent injustice of the death penalty. It would help all the men and women on Death Row.My decision to oppose death for Roof wasn’t an easy one, but I believe it’s the right one.No matter his beliefs, decades on Death Row, as well as in solitary, are mind-frying experiences. Nothing he has experienced in his brief life can prepare him for such outcomes.For life, in prison, is no picnic.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

The Bench of Justice Ajit Kumar and Justice Siddhartha Varma today observed, “Before (the Pandemic) further spirals to engulf in it the entire population of these badly hit districts, it is necessary to take some harsh steps in larger public interest.” While imposing the Lockdown, the Court did observe that putting lockdown to public activities was a matter, purely in the nature of policy decision by the concerned government, however, since no concrete plan had yet been chalked out by the Government of UP, the Court had to step in. Regarding the inaction of the State Government, the High Court said that the limitation of the government in creating infrastructure forthwith to meet the challenge of COVID-19 was understandable, however, the Court also opined that before all efforts are translated into action much water would have flown under the bridge to the utter dismay of a large population of have nots. The Court further observed, “We are of the view that in a democracy there are legitimate expectations from the government to adopt measures to meet public health issues like all other issues of public interest. Public interest expects judiciary to remain vigilant to all the issues which if not addressed to in time, will result in the failure of the system which is meant to safeguard public interest.” In a stringent remark, the Court pulled up the UP Government and said, “Those in the helm of affairs of governance are to be blamed for the present chaotic health problems and more so when there is a democracy which means a government of the people, by the people and for the people.” Further, the Court also stated that if people die of pandemic in a large number due to paucity of sufficient medical aid it would be the governments to blame which failed to counter the pandemic even after one long year of experience and learning. “One would only laugh at us that we have enough to spend on elections and very little to spend on public health”, added the Court. Lamenting at the present state of affairs, the Court also remarked, “One cannot even imagine what will happen if only 10% of the city population gets infected and needs medical help in hospitals. How the government will manage with the presently existing infrastructure is anybody’s guess.” The Court called it a shame that while the Government knew of the magnitude of the second wave it never planned things in advance. Importantly, the Court said, “You may have grocery shops with full of eatables and industries which produce bikes and cars but all this won’t be of any use if your medical shops run out of stock of life saving drugs like Remdesvire in the current surge of pandemic.” The Court also recorded its displeasure at the way government and the State Election Commission proceeded to hold election forcing teachers and other government staff to perform duties exposing themselves to the threat of pandemic that looms large these days. The police was virtually shifted to polling places giving priority to election above public health.Significantly, the Court observed,”In any civilized society, if public health system is not able to meet the challenges and people die for want of proper medication, it means there has been no proper development. Health and education go side-byside.” Court’s direction for 5 Cities Noting that public health was the top most priority and call of the moment and any complacency of any degree today would cause havoc to people, the Court remarked “We can’t shirk away from our constitutional duty to save innocent people from the pandemic which is spreading due to the negligence of a few.” Additionally, the Court also remarked, “If popular government has its own political compulsions in not checking public movements during this pandemic, we cannot remain mere passive spectators.” The Court passed the following directions in respect of cities of Prayagraj, Lucknow, Varanasi, Kanpur Nagar and Gorakhpur, and the government was directed to strictly enforce them forthwith: All establishments be it government or private, except financial institutions and financial departments, medical and health services, industrial and scientific establishments, essential services including municipal functions, and public transport, shall remain closed till 26th April, 2021;The judiciary will however, function on its own discretion; All shopping complexes and malls shall remain closed till 26th April, 2021; All grocery shops and other commercial shops excluding medical shops, with more than three workers shall remain closed till 26th April, 2021; All hotels, restaurants and even the small eating points on thelas etc. shall remain closed till 26th April, 2021; All institutions like educational institutions and other institutions relating to other disciplines and activities be it government, semi government or private shall remain closed including for their teachers and instructors and other staff till 26th April, 2021 (this direction is for the whole of Uttar Pradesh); No social functions and gatherings including marriage functions shall be permitted till 26th April, 2021. All religious activities in public of any kind is directed to remain suspended till 26th April, 2021; All religious establishments of any kind are directed to remain closed till 26th April, 2021; All hawkers including fruits and vegetable vendors, milk vendors and bread vendors, shall go off the road by 11 AM every day till 26th April, 2021; All public movements on roads would remain restricted completely, subject to above directions. Movements would be only allowed in case of medical help and emergencies. In addition to the above directions, we direct the State Government to go robust for implementing the current vaccination programme. Apart from issuing these directions, the Court, once again directed the government to consider imposition of a complete lockdown in the entire state for at least a period of two weeks. “This would not only break the chain of the spread of the virus but would also give respite to health workers”, said the Court. The matter has been posted for further hearing on 26th April 2021.Click Here To Download OrderRead OrderNext Story

iStock/Thinkstock(PHOENIX) — One hundred people have arrived at a church in Phoenix after being released by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.Shadow Rock United Church of Christ is providing housing to immigrant families after ICE recently released people in Arizona to comply with legal restrictions on the amount of time the agency can detain people.The families are mostly from Central America, according to Abeth Spencer, the director of communications for the church. Shadow Rock is providing temporary shelter and expects people to leave within a day or two.“We’re trying to provide hospitality, companionship, and even just a smile,” Spencer said in a statement. “We will provide a safe place to sleep, food to eat, showers and companionship to our neighbors while they prepare for the next leg of their journey.”The immigrants were released because the agency is complying with laws that limit the amount of time ICE can detain “family units,” according to agency spokesperson Yasmeen Pitts O’Keefe.ICE usually reviews the “post-release plan” of families in custody. But because of a high volume of families “presenting themselves at the Arizona border,” the agency said it does not have the ability to process their travel plans while also releasing them in a timely manner, and began changing their review process on Oct. 7.“After decades of inaction by Congress, the government remains severely constrained in its ability to detain and promptly remove families that have no legal basis to remain in the United States,” O’Keefe said in a statement. “As a result, family units (FAMU) continue to cross the border at high volumes and are likely to continue to do so, as they face no consequence for their actions.”Liz Curry, the president of the church’s board, said that ICE asked the church to house and care for families for a couple of nights, according to ABC Phoenix affiliate KNXV-TV.The Shadow Rock United Church of Christ has history of providing sanctuary for immigrants, and said it’s taken in immigrants before, though on a smaller scale.“As a faith organization, we do not feel that people should be charged criminally for the natural movement of migration,” the church wrote on its website. Providing sanctuary is described as “a unique opportunity for the faith community to do what Congress and the Administration have failed to do: protect and stand with immigrants facing deportation.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Photography by Adri/iStock(ATLANTA) — An animal advocate in Georgia is showing his dedication to the dog breed that is often the most discriminated against by opening up a facility devoted solely to them.Paulding County resident Jason Flatt has recently purchased 46 acres of land in a remote part of the area to build a state-of-the art sanctuary for pit bulls and pit bull mixes, he told ABC Atlanta affiliate WSB-TV.Flatt already pulls pit bulls out of local shelters and cares for them with a small team at his home, which is filled with kennels for the pupsMost of the dogs Flatt tends to have experienced some sort of trauma.Flatt said he is working to change the narrative of the breed, which is known as being aggressive or used as fighting dogs.“Everybody assumes these dogs are like these baby-killing monsters,” Flatt said. “Pit bulls have a problem — big problem. In every major city, every pound is full of them, and there’s not enough rescues to take them.”In Georgia, about 80% of the dogs at animal shelters are pit bulls or pit bull mixes, according to WSB-TV.At his new facility, Flatt aims for every dog to have a 40-foot run made of concrete and grass. The sanctuary will also inclide areas for rehabilitation, indoor play and a veterinarian, he said.His goal is to raise enough money to break ground in the next few years, he said.“We don’t give up on dogs,” he said. “We never have.”Flatt and his team will work to find every dog the right home. Those that don’t will continue to live with him on the property.“Every one of them has a story,” he said. “The stories don’t matter. It’s the endings — the endings that we look to change.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.
kali9/iStockBY: JON HAWORTH, ABC NEWS(LOS ANGELES) — A Los Angeles Police Department Harbor Division veteran with more than 30 years of experience is recovering in the hospital this morning after a violent encounter with man inside the police station late Saturday night.The incident happened shortly before 10 p.m. at the Harbor Station in San Pedro, California, when, an individual described as a Hispanic male who was approximately 29-years-old walked into the station and the officer went to meet him in the lobby area. An altercation then allegedly began after a brief discussion and, according to the Los Angeles Police Department, the officer’s weapon was taken from him and rounds were fired by the individual at the officer.“Fortunately, the officer was not struck by those rounds,” Police Chief Michel Moore said during a press conference.The suspect then fled the station after the incident in a white pickup truck when a short pursuit occurred. It was when the suspect was being apprehended that another brief altercation ensued and that officer was injured in the confrontation.According to the LAPD, the arresting officer may have injuries similar to being pistol whipped. The officer is now resting comfortably at a local area hospital.The suspect was taken into custody. A gun was recovered from the scene which belonged to the desk officer who was assaulted at the police station. The suspect also sustained injuries and was taken to the hospital. He will subsequently be released and booked on appropriate charges.“I am grateful that the officer who was in this incident tonight, who was working the desk, came out to assist this individual to understand what his needs were, that he survived,” Chief Moore said.Chief Moore said the officer is “resting” and is “comfortable” after suffering several injuries consistent with being “pistol-whipped or assaulted.”Early reports indicating that the desk officer suffered a gunshot wound which were incorrect.More information is expected to be released later today as the investigation remains ongoing.“The officer involved in this incident was transported to a local hospital and is receiving medical attention for non-life-threatening injuries,” the Los Angeles Police Department tweeted in a statement on social media. “The suspect involved in this incident is in custody. This is preliminary information, as this is an active and ongoing investigation.”“Sending my best wishes for a quick and full recovery to our @LAPDHQ officer injured in an incident at the Harbor Station tonight,” Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti tweeted .The officer is in stable condition and we’re closely monitoring the situation.”The officer involved in the incident has yet to be identified and additional information about the shooting incident was not immediately released.The shooting comes after two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies were shot in an apparent ambush earlier this month while sitting in a patrol car parked near a metro stop in Compton, California.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Riders hailing from eight nations took to the Grand Prix Stadium at the Desert International Horse Park to compete in the FEI $36,600 1.45m 238.2.2, sponsored by Great American Insurance. Of the seventeen horse-and-rider combinations, six advanced into the jump-off and in the end, it was Canada’s Beth Underhill and Count Me In that claimed the top spot with a jump-off time of 30.75 seconds. Count Me In is a fourteen-year-old Hanoverian gelding by Count Grannus out of Sunshine and is owned by Sandy Lupton and Rob Cazwell.Second place was awarded to Mavis Spencer (USA) aboard Georgy Maskrey-Segesman’s Belladonna 42 (Clearway x Vita 24), a twelve-year-old Holsteiner mare, with a jump-off time of 32.48 seconds. Katie Laurie (AUS) and Cera Caruso (Casall x Belcam Cymphony) produced the fastest jump-off time at 30.52 second but had an unfortunate rail which earned them the final podium position. Cera Caruso is a thirteen-year-old Australian Warmblood owned by Carissa McCall. Another Canadian, Ben Asselin, was sixth with Quality H.The riders were tested against a twelve obstacle course built by Alan Wade (IRE) that had three combinations and multiple rollbacks. “I thought the course was very well built. It was a prompt enough time allowed that you couldn’t take it for granted,” explained Underhill. “My plan was to be smooth and keep him relaxed because we have a long circuit ahead of us. I thought the course was very well built.”Underhill and Count Me In have a resume of impressive titles including reigning Canadian Champions after the finals in September. “This is Count Me In and I have been riding him since he was six and he is fourteen, so a long time. His owners, Sandy Lupton and Rob Cazwell are wonderful supporters. They have been with us along the whole journey,” continued Underhill. “He is just a wonderful horse. He is very careful, naturally and very quick as well. In the jump-offs, I have to be careful that I don’t go too fast because he is always anticipating my next move.”The pair will continue showing at Desert International Horse Park during Desert Circuit before they head back home to compete on the Canadian circuit. “He will continue and do the Grand Prix next week and stay jumping in the FEI throughout. We are gearing up for the grand finale during the final week and we are hoping to keep on an upward trend and peak at that particular week,” voiced Underhill. “We really love being out here. The management does a fantastic job. It is such a picturesque horse show and we are always made to feel very welcome here. It is currently one of our favorite stops.”Full Results HERE.
