CoIntelPro, Please Stop Censoring Me
CoIntelPro, please STOP ARCHIVING MY POSTS when I select "never archive." Do Not CHANGE my settings. I resent the fact that I spent thousands of hours developing Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill group at Care2, and members report it is hard to post mental health news here and my own posts are archived by YOUR selection and not my own, and many articles and strands of discussion are deleted from the group altogether. Prison investors should not moonlight as public officials. The fact that AIMI is effective in advocacy to decriminalize mental illness should not qualify our group for CENSORSHIP. Kelly Thomas was beaten to death by Fullerton, CA police officers. People know about that, and most people who are interested in mental health or police brutality also saw the video. It is my assertion that the reason the Kelly Thomas story was archived at AIMI by CoIntelPro is not to hide Kelly Thomas's beating death but to continue the nine-year government cover-up conspiracy regarding the 18 days of secret arrest and Wrongful Death of Larry Neal, my mentally, physically disabled brother. When people browse for "Kelly Thomas" online, CoIntelPro wants to ensure that nothing about Larry Neal's murder, which is treated like a national secret, responds. Therefore, AIMI posts about Kelly were archived. See "Exposed: Plea for Free Speech by Mary Neal" http://freespeakblog.blogspot.com/2012/07/plea-for-free-speech-by-mary-neal.html End the censorship regarding Larry Neal's murder and obey the law, and there will be nothing to hide. All murders matter - not just those in Colorado which the president stated would bring "the full force of the justice system" to bear on the shooter. Police who secretly arrested and killed Larry Neal and U.S. Department of Justice officials who helped Memphis Shelby County Jail to cover-up the murder need to be brought to justice, also. But if that never happens because human rights are considered irrelevant to Justice Department officials, at least stop compounding the crimes by censoring Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill group members and Mary Neal, its director. We should also be able to advocate against mass incarceration, police brutality, prisoner abuse, and the death penalty without the censorship that is applied to our work at Care2. Please honor the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, even if your private prison stock value reduces as people learn why 1.25 million mentally ill people are imprisoned and that there are between 5,000 and 10,000 wrongful convictions every year - some of whom are wrongly executed. Stop blocking the truth because you care more about money than people. Thank you.
