Executing, Imprisoning African Americans and Sick People

Every killing of a black person, especially mental patients, by police officers or prison guards is said to be justified. Deaths that absolutely cannot be called justified are covered-up by officials. Hall, a Michigan man, was killed by a police firing squad after having a "run-in with a convenience store clerk." Although he was literally executed with 40 bullets for a possible misdemeanor, Hall's execution was ruled "justified."

See also "Wrongful Death of Larry Neal." - a premeditated murder that is covered up by government officials. Murders that cannot by any stretch of the imagination be said to be justified are simply covered up. Larry Neal's secret arrest (kidnapping) for 18 days, with police denying that he was in custody, was such a murder. So was the death of another black man who was baked to death on Riker's Island in February. Jerome Murdough's family was not contacted by prison officials, the State of New York, or his court-appointed attorney when he died in custody. 

AP reporters contacted Murdough's family three weeks after his murder, or his sister and elderly mother might never have known about Murdough being slow roasted in a solitary jail cell. This system believes it has the right to exterminate black people, particularly mental patients, and the system has no intention of paying wrongful death settlements for people it deems to have no value. Hitler called people with mental health issues and minorities "useless eaters."

NO RECORD IS KEPT IN AMERICA REGARDING POLICE VIOLENCE AGAINST THE MENTALLY ILL. I am interested in oppression of mentally ill people of every race.

25. What are your thoughts about assisted outpatient treatment (AOT) programs, which provide food and housing assistance and court-ordered psychiatric treatment for people diagnosed with severe mental illness, particularly those exiting prisons and mental hospitals? Would your relative benefit by such a program?

A bill that is currently before the U.S. House of Representatives provides for pilot AOT programs. It is called H.R. 3717- "Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act." It has three provisions that are essential to improvement:
(a) Medicaid insurance for psychiatric inpatients
(b) AOT programs
(c) Crisis intervention training for police officers and prison guards to reduce violence against mentally ill people

Those three provisions would decriminalize mental illness and reduce the likelihood of serious injuries and deaths among mentally ill people during arrests or while in custody. PRISON INVESTORS HATE H.R.3717, because over 1.25 million of America's inmates are mentally ill people. Private prison investors rely on ineffective mental health care services to keep their prisons full. 

It is much more cost effective to treat rather than to imprison people who have serious mental illnesses. Warehousing just one inmate in a New York jail costs $168,000 per year - more money than the average family earns in five years. Most people with mental illness are unable to contribute to their own defense at trial, some falsely confess to crimes they did not do, and their sentences are generally longer than healthy defendants'. Oftentimes, mentally ill inmates get time added to their sentences after being imprisoned because of their inability to understand or follow prison rules. 

Over sixty percent of the nations' inmates suffering today in solitary confinement are mentally ill people. They are isolated, sprayed with harmful chemicals, subjected to deadly restraint, raped, beaten, and some are killed behind bars. Organizations that object to AOT programs say it is unjust to enforce psychiatric treatment, but they are nowhere around when your untreated mentally ill relatives are sentenced to prisons and jails or released from hospitals and incarceration without provisions for their continued treatment and care. 

People with serious mental illness are deliberately left to their own devices in order to entrap them indefinitely in the revolving door in and out of detention until they eventually die or get sentenced for life (due to "three strikes law" or a violent crime). Then YOU, as taxpayers, get sentenced to paying the prison for keeping the inmate detained for life. YOU, as taxpayers, also pay the settlements for wrongful deaths and brutality. Over 50% of the victims of police violence are/were mentally ill people.

YOUR safety is compromised by a mental health care system that refuses to allow involuntary commitment and enforced treatment unless and until a person with serious mental illness proves (through violence) to be a danger to self and others. Whether or not you have or had relatives with mental illness, H.R.3717 "Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act" concerns your family, too. Your tax money is wasted imprisoning people for being sick although treatment and subsistence assistance in AOT programs is substantially more effective and less costly, and your safety is compromised by withholding treatment until avoidable tragedies happen.


Contact your elected officials, particularly your congressional representatives, and urge them to support H.R.3717:

Also, please insist that African Americans and the mentally ill are NOT to be executed by police officers on the presumption of minor offenses like Mr. Hall was in Michigan. A harmless man being executed on the street by a firing squad should never be counted as "justified" to avoid paying a wrongful death settlement and to keep murderous police on the payroll. Neither should African Americans and the mentally ill of any race be brutally treated or murdered during arrests or behind bars like Larry Neal and so many others have been. If the United States continues its present course, make sure this does not happen without your objections. Silence is consent.

African Americans - An Indigenous People

1 of 3 -- African Americans are a peculiar people. We have been mixed with other races and tongues - by force, usually. We emerged with our own culture from the degradation of slavery and Jim Crow - a rich culture that positively impacts every other culture on the face of the earth. We have enriched everyone except ourselves. We identify with Africans everywhere, but we who were made in America are unique. It is time for us to be recognized as indigenous people because we were made in America.

2 of 3 -- Like indigenous people everywhere, we are exploited. It is time to claim our true identity and demand the rights of indigenous peoples. Separate from this corrupt, racist system where we are forever considered "the Negro problem" and can never get justice. We tried integration for over 50 years, and it has not and cannot work. For as long as we have been in this system, we have been USED and ABUSED. Our people are considered prison commodities. Our brightest are induced to turn against us and act as proxy racists. We cannot continue this way. Assimilation is not the way.

3 of 3 -- "Then I heard another voice from heaven say: "'Come out of her, my people'" (Revelation 18:4). We have sought acceptance when we should pursue separation, indigenous rights, reparations and property. God bless the child who has his own.

This is how we'll win the game
Let just a few live the dream
Marches, sit-ins all in vain

Make 'em think they overcame.
Let a few experience success
Toms come aboard and control the rest
Millions will be left in pain
But they'll think they overcame.

Al Sharpton: FBI Informant?

"Al Sharpton's Secret Work as an FBI Informant" was published by "The Smoking Gun" on April 7, 2014.

Excerpts: "A lengthy investigation by The Smoking Gun has uncovered remarkable details about Sharpton’s past work as an informant for a joint organized crime task force comprised of FBI agents and NYPD detectives, as well as his dealings with an assortment of wiseguys . . . Like almost every other FBI informant, Sharpton was solely an information source. The parameters of his cooperation did not include Sharpton ever surfacing publicly or testifying on a witness stand." The entire article is at the link below:

The NY Daily News reports that after being exposed, Al Sharpton said, “I encourage kids all the time to work with law enforcement. You’re acting like it’s a scandal for me to do that."

Ordinarily, such reports are not released until after an FBI informant dies, like Ernest C. Withers, photojournalist for the civil rights movement.

Question: Do you believe that Al Sharpton's work as an FBI informant is a good example for our youths of "working with law enforcement"?

Jerome Murdough Roasted in Jail; AP Told His Family Weeks Later

There was a time when I thought we could negotiate a confidential settlement regarding the secret arrest and wrongful death of Larry Neal. I assumed the government and The Cochran Firm would not want it known that a mentally ill heart patient who was a U.S. citizen was killed and his survivors were defrauded by a law firm carrying Johnnie Cochran's name. We initially believed Larry's death was accidental. Not only was Larry Neal's death NOT accidental, but authorities do not seem to mind if the whole world knows that mentally and physically disabled Americans are secretly jailed and killed and that such deaths are covered up. It happens regularly. Apparently, it happened to Jerome Murdough.

Jerome Murdough was a 56-year-old mentally challenged veteran who was BAKED to death in Riker's Island in February 2014, but his family was not told for weeks. Finally, AP notified Murdough's family, not prison authorities or his attorney. The prison reportedly informed Murdough's state-appointed attorney three days after his demise. Perhaps officials and the lawyer had agreed that Murdough's family must never to be told about their relative slow-roasting to death in a Riker's Island prison cell.

Like Larry Neal, Jerome Murdough had suffered numerous previous arrests due to his mental illness before his fatal incarceration. It is likely that officials had contact information for Murdough's relatives in his file. But officials withhold information about mentally ill citizens' deaths sometimes to spare themselves bad publicity and save money on wrongful death lawsuits. That is why AIMI recommends that families physically search jails when looking for missing loved ones. Merely calling authorities and filing a missing person report are insufficient, as police lied when Larry Neal was "missing" for 18 days in 2003. He was secretly incarcerated throughout that time. Larry died in Memphis Shelby County Jail, deprived of his heart medications and likely because of other inexcusable abuses of power. The Neals were NEVER told the circumstances of Larry Neal's death, and we are censored and persecuted for asking.

If not for AP contacting Murdough's relatives, Murdough might have been "missing" forever and presumed dead. That was the likely plan. If only The Cochran Firm had not pretended (under contract) to handle Larry Neal's wrongful death and negligence civil actions, the Neals would have contacted media companies much sooner than WE DID to notify the public about Larry's secret murder. The Cochran Firm swore us to silence immediately regarding Larry's death, which we did not recognize at the time as being a coldblooded, premeditated murder. By the time we discovered The Cochran Firm had secretly withheld our lawsuits while Tennessee's statute of limitations ran, nearly a year had passed, and mainstream media had obviously agreed to withhold reports about the "wrongful death of Larry Neal" (Google it). That is still the case today. As odd as it seems, Murdough's mom and sister (pictured below) are lucky. They do not have to investigate and report Murdough's death themselves. See links to reports about Jerome Murdough by AP and Mother Jones.

Mother Jones reports: 

(1) The United States operate 1,800 prisons and 3,000 jails. Like Alcatraz, they aren't about rehabilitation. They're about punishment.

(2) 80,000 people are held in solitary confinement every year.

(3) As many as half of all sexual assaults in prisons are carried out by prison guards.

(4) One fourth of the people incarcerated on Earth are incarcerated in the United States.

(5) We have 2.3 million Americans behind bars . . . they’re held at ADX Florence, Pelican Bay, and Rikers Island, where an inmate recently baked to death in his cell. Baked to death.

Rikers Island is the nation’s second-largest jail system with 12,000 inmates. A whopping 40 percent are mentally ill, and a third of them suffer from serious mental problems.

Jerome Murdough was arrested after seeking shelter from harsh weather in New York in February. The meds he was administered for bipolar disorder and schizophrenia made the former Marine more susceptible to heat. One can only hope that Murdough was asleep as he slow-roasted in a solitary jail cell at Riker's.


Mother Jones: America's Worst Prison Closed 51 Years Ago. Except It Didn't

Condolences to Murdough's family and close friends. Hundreds of thousands of people of all races and ages who were labeled as being mentally ill were roasted in Nazi ovens before WWII. Our apologies for taking so long to decriminalize mental illness in the USA and give Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill. Our messages to the public and politicians are censored. Human rights advocates at AIMI hope that more care is applied in the future to ensure the safety of America's most vulnerable citizens and that victims and survivors are given due process instead of cover-ups when the system fails.

Citizen: One who by birth or naturalization owes a debt of loyalty to a country and is due protection BY that country (certain exemptions apply). Murdough showed his loyalty to the USA by enlisting in the military, but his protection as a homeless veteran was missing in action. Larry's family shows loyalty by enlisting in military service and paying taxes; however, we were told by federal court order that whatever was done to prevent lawsuit against Shelby County Jail was "immaterial." Certain exemptions apply no matter who is in the White House or over the Justice Department.

Donald Williams, Jr. - The One Who Got Away

San Jose State University faces a $5 million lawsuit for a racial bullying case. Donald Williams, Jr., a San Jose State University (SJSU) student at the center of the racial bullying case, claimed that his adviser was aware of an “explosive” situation in the dorm room but did nothing to address it. Donald Williams, who is black, is asking for $5 million dollars from the university and threatening a lawsuit if the university rejects his request.

Without his parent's intervention in autumn 2013, Williams might have been the next black man's "suicide" at SJSU. His suite mates were calling him "fraction" to denote that a black person does not count as a whole human being. They had pictures of Hitler on the walls and the word "nigger" written on a blackboard in the suite. At one point, Williams' white suite mates tried to chain the 17-year-old college freshman with a bicycle chain. Williams was brutally mistreated because of racism. He started going home most weekends to avoid his suite mates. Williams' adviser knew about the harassment but did nothing to curtail the hate crimes by Logan Beaschler, 18, of Bakersfield; Joseph Bomgardner, 19, of Clovis; and Colin Warren, 18. Blacks comprise less than four percent of the student body at SJSU.

Donald Williams, Jr. is the one that got away. Brenden Tiggs was killed in his dorm room on campus (called a suicide) January 2014. A spokeswoman for SJSU claimed that Tiggs' death was the "first student suicide in over a decade." Not true. SJSU had other deaths that were called suicides and serious assaults of black men students within this decade and before that still need investigating, including the covered-up murder of Gregory Johnson, Jr. in 2008. See other victims listed in "SJSU Deaths and Terrorism"

"Victim in Racial Bullying Case Seeks $5 Million from University"


Gregory Johnson, Jr.'s Parents attended protests with students at SJSU after the hate crimes against Donald Williams, Jr.'s went public in 2013. Government and SJSU officials attempt to ignore the distraught parents who displayed pictures of the six-inch gash in their dead son's head. Officials said Gregory, who was over six feet tall, died by hanging from a shorter ceiling in the basement of Sigma Chi Fraternity House, but the gash indicates Gregory endured assault like Washington, another SJSU student who was seriously injured that way in 1997. Washington was in a coma for some time after someone attempted to murder him.

Racism Against Black Boys, Especially If Labeled As Mentally Disabled

This article was first published in "Dog Justice for Mentally Ill" blog.

The American Psychological Association (APA) conducted a study indicating that black boys are perceived as being older and less innocent than their white peers by Caucasian police officers and college women. The APA study was discussed during two Blogtalkradio shows: "Human Rights for Prisoners March" on March 17 and "Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill (AIMI)" broadcast on March 19. Links to both shows are below in this article. Discussions will continue Sunday, March 23 on "Human Rights Demand" channel at Blogtalkradio. 

The APA study exposed that Caucasian police officers who dehumanize blacks are more likely to use force on black boys like those featured in five photographs in this article. Juries comprised of whites (like the white college students in the APA study) seem predisposed to attribute guilt to black boys. The white research participants generally believed black boys, even 10-year-olds, to be 4.5 years older than they actually were and therefore more responsible. The research also indicates that black boys accused of crimes were likely to be presumed guilty by the white study participants. This explains why prosecutors seldom charge, and Caucasians on grand juries seldom indict, police officers who brutalize or kill black boys.

“Children in most societies are considered to be in a distinct group with characteristics such as innocence and the need for protection. Our research found that black boys can be seen as responsible for their actions at an age when white boys still benefit from the assumption that children are essentially innocent,” said author Phillip Atiba Goff, PhD, of the University of California, Los Angeles. 

Discipline for Black Boys with Mental Disabilities Compared with White Peers

According to another report released in March, “African-American students and students with disabilities are suspended at hugely disproportionate rates compared to white students.” This report was provided by the Discipline Disparities Research-to-Practice Collaborative. Its results were published in the Washington Post (link below). An excerpt:

"'In the 1972-73 school year, suspension rates were 6 percent for whites and 12 percent for African Americans at the secondary school level. [Racism is getting worse.] The most recent federal figures, for 2009-10, show rates of 7 percent for whites and 24 percent for African Americans in those grades,' said researcher Daniel J. Losen, director of the Center for Civil Rights Remedies, at University of California, Los Angeles.

"For some student groups, the rates are markedly higher. For example, among middle and high school students, 36 percent of black males with disabilities were suspended at least once in 2009-10,' Losen said." 

Mentally challenged black boys are extremely likely to experience out-of-school suspensions - not wholly because of their behavior but also because of systemic prejudice against them and the dehumanization of black boys, especially those with mental disparities. "Out-of-school suspensions are linked to academic disengagement, lower achievement and greater risks of school dropout and contact with the juvenile justice system," researchers said.

Disparity of Treatment for Black Mentally Ill Men in the Prison System

Mentally ill inmates generally receive harsher prison sentences regardless of their race, possibly because they are less able to participate in their own defense. Once incarcerated, people with serious mental illness are unlikely to have their sentences shortened by doing prison labor or being "model prisoners." In fact, prison sentences of mentally challenged inmates are often lengthened due to their lack of understanding or ability to follow CO's instructions and prison rules. One might assume from the two research studies referenced herein that mentally challenged black men are also more harshly punished in correctional institutions, like they were in school. 

Intolerance of black boys and men, especially if they have mental illness, is reflected in our prison rates. According to the United States Department of Justice, blacks comprised 12 percent to 13 percent of the nation's population but over 40 percent of the prisoners. Solitary confinement is one of the punitive methods used in corrections, and more than 80 percent of the inmates enduring solitary confinement torture in the United States are black people.

Honor student, 16, suffered ruptured testicle during a rough 'pat down' by a police woman and now faces infertility.

A brain-damaged youth in Illinois was subjected to deadly face-down take-down over his shirt tail being out of his pants. Mentally challenged people are under attack. The special needs student was stalked by the school police who insulted him, then attacked and beat him. The face-down choke hold the police officer used on the student has caused deaths. See comments about the child abuse against that disabled youngster by Care2 members at this link, if they let you:

"If it seems to you that the police are becoming more violent, you may be right. In 2011, Los Angeles County police shot to death 54 people, some 70 percent more than in 2010. Between 2008 and 2013, the number of people shot by Massachusetts police increased every year. In 2012, police in New York City shot and killed 16 people, nine more the previous year and the most in 12 years. In 2012, Philadelphia police shot 52 people the highest number in 10 years." The victims of police violence are overwhelmingly black boys and men, including mentally challenged people who were killed when officers responded to families' calls for assistance. See "How Many People are Police Killing?"

AIMI members support Rep. Tim Murphy's congressional bill, "H.R.3717 - Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act," which was introduced in December 2013 and now has over 40 co-sponsors. One provision of H.R.3717 is training for police officers and correctional officers regarding the apprehension and containment of people with mental illness without causing injuries and deaths. Please read about the bill in articles within this blog, and hear H.R.3717 discussed during "Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill" radio broadcasts on Blogtalkradio (February 12 and 19, 2014). Few members from the Congressional Black Caucus have co-sponsored H.R.3717 thus far, although research proves that black people are overly represented among families experiencing mental health crisis and most likely to suffer serious injuries and fatalities because of it.
Racism, police brutality, wrongful deaths, prisoner torture, child abuse by police officers, prison profiteering, and hate crimes against the mentally disabled, particularly non-whites, are widespread problems that will not be addressed with corrective measures unless they are first exposed to the general public as well as to our elected and appointed officials. Unfortunately, advocacy for human rights in America is censored.

Internet companies are overwhelmingly owned and operated by Caucasians, and data exposing prejudice against blacks is censored. Mary Neal was not allowed to place links to this article and to the study by the American Psychological Association at the Facebook "Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill" group. CoIntelPro/NSA assumed control of our AIMI group at Care2 years ago, which is why the "Dog Justice for Mentally Ill" blog was started at Blogger. As AIMI's membership enrollment grew, our members at Care2 began experiencing frequent DoS attacks, surreptitious removal of site content, and denial of the opportunity to use many of the features that Care2 makes available for animal rights advocates. AIMI members feel that America's mentally ill people of all races deserve at least Dog Justice. See the result of my attempt to open the link at Care2 regarding the black boy who was attacked by his school police officer:
"Care2 is Down for Maintenance"

Through online media, human rights advocates expose crimes against humanity. Oppressing black school boys and criminalizing mental illness are tragic circumstances that deserve exposure. The recent studies published by the American Psychological Association and by the Discipline Disparities Research-to-Practice Collaborative identified extreme prejudice against black boys and men, especially the mentally disabled, which account for police violence against that population and the denial of due process by whites in positions of authority over the justice system after such offenses occur. But it is difficult to share the studies and challenge officials and the general populace to change because of racial prejudice in Internet media companies and the NSA, which not only monitors but also censors Internet content by and about African Americans.

Sometimes people harbor racist viewpoints without being aware of them. For example, a recent study by Kelly M. Hoffman and Adam Waytz shows that people, including medical personnel, assume black people feel less pain than white people. The researchers asked participants to rate how much pain they would feel in 18 common scenarios. The participants rated experiences such as stubbing a toe or getting shampoo in their eyes on a four-point scale (where 1 is “not painful” and 4 is “extremely painful”). Then they rated how another person (a randomly assigned photo of an experimental “target”) would feel in the same situations. Sometimes the target was white, sometimes black. In each experiment, the researchers found that white participants, black participants, and nurses and nursing students assumed that blacks felt less pain than whites. See "Racial Perceptions of Others' Pain"

The Old South Rises Again: Shannon Nyamodi Case

I commend David Adams on the latest report about the Shannon Nyamodi case and coverage about Elizabeth Crudup's alleged assault by Dunn, NC police officers on March 14 in "The People's Champion" blog. The large KKK billboard where Elizabeth Crudup's car was towed by police in Johnston County is absolutely chilling. I had heard about that sign and appreciate Adams featuring it on an article about Elizabeth's ordeal. It does not seem wise for her to attempt to retrieve her car from Johnston County. Hopefully, the Captain of Dunn Police Department retrieves it and delivers it safely back to her as promised. It would probably not drive the car again until having it thoroughly checked by a reputable, trusted auto mechanic. An excerpt from The People's Champion is below:

"The billboard is a very alarming reality and speaks volumes about some parts of North Carolina’s social climate in 2014. Ms. Crudup says that she can’t ever recall anyone who has had their vehicle impounded in the town of Dunn being taken to a tow yard several towns away like her car had been." - See more at:

I overstand the concern about Elizabeth Crudup having been assigned night court for her "resisting arrest" charges, especially since night court is unusual in that area. One can only hope that North Carolina's elected and appointed officials along with federal officials and every just-minded person in this country will unite with Elizabeth Crudup to ensure justice for Shannon Nyamodi, her son who has been wrongly detained in solitary confinement for the better part of two years in order to force his confession and plea bargaining on false charges. May Heaven help us all. People should not await a casket on which to grandstand before standing up for innocent black youths and their mothers who are at the mercy of such people.

Help African Americans to get off their knees begging for justice and take a STAND for justice, knowing You are with us. STOP being afraid, people. Stop ignoring your brothers and sisters who are being treated like Elizabeth Crudup and her son, like Mary Neal and her mother. It is our right to be able to ask for fair trials for arrested black youths like Shannon Nyamodi. It is our right to ask what happened to handicapped black men who were murdered under secret arrest like Larry Neal was. Demand that NSA/CoIntelPro release my communication - censoring me to hide murders and other abuses of power. Proverbs 31:8-9 commands us to stand for poor, oppressed people and everyone who is appointed to destruction. Stop being cowards and sellouts, in Jesus' name. "Fear not, for I am with you," says the Lord. Resist oppression.

The public marched and wore hoodies for Trayvon Martin, and he was beyond their help. Please don't be afraid to call officials for Shannon Nyamodi "Justice for Shannon Nyamodi Telephone Campaign"
Don't be afraid to sign my petition for free speech, freedom of press and email the USDOJ about Shannon Nyamodi and Larry Neal. Demand justice for all!

1) To the woman who called me today after 4pm Eastern from "817" area code: I listened to your message but was not in the position to write down your phone number at the time. I saved your message in my phone. CoIntelPro quickly removed the message. Please call again.

2) To David Adams, of The People's Champion: I do not seem to have your email address in my gmail account. I tried to open "The People's Champion" blog to see if you record your email address on your cover page, which I strongly advise all journalists to do. However, CoIntelPro prevents your blog from opening on my computer. See SOPA (a congressional law that did not pass) regarding the feds redirecting browsers and preventing access to information at certain Internet links. (After writing this message, your crime news blog opened. Meanwhile, I received your email address from a mutual friend.)
