Memphis Police Bogus Prayer Vigil

MEMPHIS POLICE DEPARTMENT is up for accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA). Your comments are invited if you have an opinion about the law officers who secretly arrested mentally, physically disabled Larry Neal in 2003, hid him 18 days in jail while lying to his family and social worker ("We don't have him"), then returned the naked body of this harmless middle aged heart patient and denied the Neal family any excuse, explanation, investigation, arrest reports, or due process of law. The Neal family does not even know how they killed Larry - Taser, restraint chair, heinous medical experiments . . . (Eleven url links are in this article.) The brutality and murders of mentally ill people in Memphis did not stop with Larry's death, and neither is police violence limited to them. At least 11 people in Memphis were killed under the color of law in 2012, and two were already shot dead by MPD in 2013. Some of the victims' families are also DENIED open records. Comment on accreditation for MPD by calling (901)636-3904 between 1pm and 3pm ET, or write Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies at 13575 Heathcote Boulevard, Suite 320, Gainesville, VA 20155. Speak publicly at the police department's accreditation hearing in Memphis on February 4 at 5:30 p.m. at 949 E.H. Crump Boulevard. Tell them you object to crimes against humanity and government cover-ups.

As Memphis Police Department braces for the accreditation review, MPD scheduled a prayer vigil for February 2, 2013. (Eleven links are in this article.) Black churches will be up front for the event, called "Hands Around 201 Poplar." I do not know how many of the pastors are on Homeland Security's "Clergy Response Team" and payroll. Of course, one does not have to be a CoIntelPro preacher to pray for police officers, but ministers of God owe honesty to police officers and all people. Repentance is God's requirement for forgiveness. Black Autonomy Copwatch does not believe that requirement has been fulfilled, and it has not. See an email from Black Autonomy Federation about the prayer vigil. (Eleven url links are in this article.)
  
Greetings,

In retaliation for the Memphis Black Autonomy Federation's letter to the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies opposing the accreditation of the Memphis Police Department and in an attempt to discredit and disrupt our upcoming March 15-16 International Days of Action Against Police Brutality, Mayor AC Wharton and city officials, who have enlisted black churches as a front, are putting on a pro-police prayer "vigil" this coming Saturday (see news article, http://wreg.com/2013/01/29/hands-around-201-poplar/)


The so-called vigil, "Hands Around 201 Poplar," is being orchestrated by city officials and billed as "a stand against crime." But the mayor, the city council, the black ministers, and their allies almost never about the crime of police brutality in Memphis.


It is a crime that two Memphis cops shot and killed Steven Askew, 24, on Jan. 17, 2013, while Askew slept in his car with a gun reportedly on the front seat--a gun he was licensed to carry.

It is a crime that MPD officer Terrance Shaw shot and killed 15-year-old Justin Thompson on Sept. 24, 2012,
claiming that Thompson tried to rob him. Why couldn't Shaw, a trained cop, subdue this boy (if, in fact, Thompson needed to be subdued) without killing him? Will the investigation into Thompson's death ever be released to the public, or will the cover-up continue?


It is a crime that police beat and choked Lorenzo Davis, 28, to death on July 3, 2012, for allegedly possessing drugs. The medical examiner claimed that Davis died of cocaine poisoning, but doctors at Methodist Hospital who examined him told his mother that the only drug in his system was Tylenol.


It is a crime that Memphis police shot and killed Hernandez Dowdy, 38, on June 27, 2012, for stealing a car that was never really stolen because the white woman who owned the car filed a false police report.


It is a crime that at least 10 other people have died at the hands of Memphis police officers since Feb. 10, 2012.

It is not likely that much, if anything, will be said about these crimes of police murder at Saturday's "vigil." At our march and rally on Friday, March 15, and our mini-conference on Saturday, March 16 (details to follow), the Memphis Black Autonomy Federation, family members of people killed by the police, others who oppose police terror and corruption, including you, we hope, will protest the crimes committed by the Memphis police and begin to build a network of activists to fight police brutality in the Mid-South and around the country. We are not at all fooled or intimidated by the fake "vigil." We see it for what it is--a desperate attempt by city officials to disrupt, discredit and destroy the movement against police brutality that is developing in Memphis.


Peace and love,
JoNina Ervin

P.S. Please join us on Monday, Feb. 4, at 5:30 p.m., at the police station at 949 E.H. Crump Blvd., where a public meeting will be held concerning the accreditation of the Memphis Police Department. [End of email]

Open Letter to Hezekiah Sistrunk (law partner of The Cochran Firm Frauds)
http://marylovesjustice.blogspot.com/2012/03/open-letter-to-hezekiah-sistrunk-esq.html

I got such CoIntelPro interference writing Sistrunk a letter that I decided to send him the poem that describes his firm's crime in contracting to be the Neals' wrongful death attorneys while actually helping officials cover up the secret arrest and wrongful death of Larry Neal. See "Justice Denied," a 21st century slave song, which is published below  and at this link

JUSTICE DENIED, a 21st Century Slave Song
by Mary Neal (all rights reserved)

 
One day Larry went missing
We looked for him high and low
For 18 days while he died in jail
“Have you got him?” The Jail said “NO!”

 
On August 1, police came
A dreaded knock on the door
“We have Larry’s body. He died in jail
Sorry. We won’t tell you more.”

 
“Well, tell it to our lawyers!
The Johnnie Cochran Firm!
Lynching is illegal!
You might get prison terms!”

 
“Over that sick coon? We doubt it!
But give it your best shot
We told him to stop singing loud; move on
But he would not!”

 
Mama cried silently as she signed her name
On the Cochran Firm’s contract
“Don’t let them kill other sick sons
Nothing can bring mine back.”

 
Lawyers gave us their assurance
And lots of tissues, too
Saying, “Dry your eyes, old Mama
We’ll get justice for you.”

 
But The Cochran Firm tricked us
Their promises were only lies
They held Larry’s case inactive
And never asked how he died

 
The letters David McLaughlin sent
Were false, every one!
The Cochran Firm worked for the jail
Nothing was being done

 
Too late to hire other attorneys
When we discovered the fraud
Larry’s case file was empty
How could they do this? Oh, Lord!

 
“We’ll sue you for defrauding us
You can’t treat clients like this
Larry Neal was a person
The life he had was his!

 
We’ll tell the Bar about your fraud
The jury will make you pay
You deserve to lose your license
New clients won’t come your way!”

 
“Over that sick coon? We doubt it
But give it your best shot!
Police told him, ‘Stop singing loud; move on!’
But he would not!”

 
Tennessee Bar said, “No biggie”
Georgia Bar ignored our complaint
Judge Shoob said, “What Cochran Firm?
There is none in this state”

 
“But judge, look out your window
The Cochran Firm’s right there!
On TV every few minutes
Your Honor, please be fair!”

 
“Get out of this courtroom!
Johnnie Cochran’s dead
We’ve got his firm and got his name
Now don’t you make us mad!”

 
“We’ll take you back to court again
You have a poor defense!
Your office is just blocks away
You can’t say you don’t exist!”

 
“We said it; judge signed it
Now get out of our face
Plead for justice all you want
You are the wrong damn race!”

 
“Look Media - A court order!
No Cochran Firm in Georgia!
Please tell the people to watch out
I’ll send some copies to ya!”

 
“Don’t bother; not interested.
Their clients are mostly blacks
Who cares if lawyers trick those folks?
It’s time you learn the facts!”

 
“But Larry was a human being!
He had a right to live!
The Cochran Firm worked for the jail
His death’s a secret still

 
We’ll write letters to Congress
And report you on the Web!
Jails and lawyers are not allowed
To conspire to hide the dead!

 
Georgia courts can’t protect you!
Nor the media or BBB!
We’ll tell the public what you did
And civil rights groups – you’ll see!

 
We’ll sue in federal court for your fraud
The jury will make you pay!
You deserve to lose your license
New clients won’t come your way!”

 
“Over that sick coon? We doubt it
But give it your best shot!
Police told him, ‘Stop singing loud;
move on!’ But he would not!”

 
“Judge look at this fraud; listen to lies
They told right in this court!
They helped the jail hide Larry’s death
While under contract with us!”

 
“We disclaim our Georgia office
Our Memphis office, too
Dismiss this case right now, Judge Batten
We all depend on you.

 
Wherever Larry’s family sues us
We claim we don’t exist
Can’t let this case ever go to jury

Sick black folks won’t be missed
 
Judge, don’t honor their subpoena
To Shelby County Jail
Can’t let this family ever know
What happened to Larry Neal!

 

This family is ridiculous
To think federal court would care
that lawyers lie to evade justice 

It’s an immaterial affair!”
 
“The Cochran Firm is right!”
Judge Batten did agree
“Case dismissed! Immaterial!
Don’t come here bothering me!”

 

“But Judge, they tricked us!
Helped police hide Larry’s death
He had a right to live his life
Regardless of his health!

 

Thank God! Here comes CHANGE!
We’ll tell Mr. Holder
He’ll investigate Larry’s murder
This cover-up is over!

 

Mr. Holder, they killed him
Under secret arrest in jail
Thank God, you’re here now
And justice cannot fail!”

 

“Were you waiting for me? Don’t be absurd!
Johnnie Cochran is Dead
We’ve got his firm and got his name
Now don’t you make us mad!
 


You don’t want to make us mad!”

Loving Justice Scalia!

Our "Inalienable Rights "Are Really Quite Alienable

I greatly admire U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's honesty. He said, THE CONSTITUTION IS "NOT A LIVING DOCUMENT. IT'S DEAD, DEAD, DEAD." He said this on January 28, 2013, at Southern Methodist University.  Our civil rights are supposedly protected by the U.S. Constitution. Did I not publish this truth a couple of years ago? I was shocked when I learned we have no respected rights, and I believed that telling the public would make a difference. 

*****
UPDATE March 3, 2014: A year later, we have another reason to admire Justice Scalia, a man who gives us the hard truth. Justice Scalia reports that we have every reason to expect Americans to again be interned in concentration camps. This is important for people who thought Congress and the president approved NDAA and FEMA camps for nothing. See the AP report at the link below:
Internments can happen again, Scalia warns  
http://www.staradvertiser.com/news/hawaiinews/20140204_Internments_can_happen_again_Scalia_warns.html?id=243454461

*****
My red pills came when Memphis Police secretly arrested my mentally, physically disabled brother, kept him incarcerated for three weeks and returned his dead body without explanation or excuse, and my family is DENIED any investigation, inquest, or arrest records. After the wrongful death of Larry Neal and our denial of justice, I published a thousand blogs, independent news articles, and my Sharebook at Care2 to warn Americans that we have no respected rights in the United States - not even the right to life. I even wrote a poem about it, called "DYING LIBERTY." Now you heard it from a Supreme Court Justice. 

Justice Scalia is also the justice who pointed out that courts are not impaired to consider PROOF of ACTUAL INNOCENCE once a person has been convicted of a crime, even when such persons face the death penalty. He made that statement when Troy Davis's case was taken to the Supreme Court in his quest for a new trial. See Justice Scalia's wording in the minority decision from the Supreme Court at the link for "How Important is Innocence in Criminal Justice" among the six(6) links beneath my poem, called "Dying Liberty, by Mary Neal."

Rights you declare are over now
Beginning with sick folks
We arrest and kill who we want
The Bill of Rights' a joke

The Constitution's dead

Which is zero for Larry Neal

We have a terrific asset

Lawyers can hold down settlements

When policemen kill minorities
That is what they do

In Nazi Germany, the mentally ill

Any reason to change it? No.

And will work up the social chain

Memphis Police Accreditation Review - Feb 4

Announcement from Black Autonomy Copwatch in Memphis, Tennessee (with three urls):

Greetings,

On Monday, Feb. 4. Memphis residents will have a rare opportunity to make complaints about brutality and misconduct committed by the Memphis Police Department to investigators for the national agency that will decide if the MPD will keep its status as a nationally accredited department. (See news article, http://www.commercialappeal.com/news/2013/jan/19/comment-time-coming-for-memphis-police/.)

The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies will conduct a public session on Feb. 4 at 5:30 p.m. at the MPD station at 949 E.H. Crump Blvd. At this time, members of the community may make complaints about the MPD. If you cannot attend this session, you may make comments to the accreditation team (anonymously, if desired) by phone on Feb. 4 from 1-3 p.m. by calling (901)636-3904. Comments made also be made in writing and mailed to the Commissoin on Accrediation for Law Enforcement Agencies, 13575 Heathcote Blvd., Suite 320, Gainesville, VA 20155.

We cannot afford to miss this opportunity to let the CALEA know about the violence and corruption rampant within the MPD. The CALEA needs to know that at least 11 people died at the hands of the MPD in 2012, including 15-year-old Justin Thompson, shot to death by off-duty MPD officer Terrance Shaw on Sept. 24, 2012. It has been four months since Justin was killed, yet no public report has been issued about his death. We talked to his mother last week, and she said the police have told her nothing about the investigation.

We are still in the first month of 2013, and MPD officers have already shot and killed two men. 1. http://wreg.com/2013/01/18/man-shot-killed-by-memphis-police/ -- According to Channel 3 news, the family of the dead man in this case, Steven Askew, has hired a lawyer and plans to file a lawsuit against the MPD.

2. http://wreg.com/2013/01/11/police-shoot-and-kill-man-while-serving-warrant/, This man was allegedly abusing animals.

Just yesterday, an MPD officer was suspended after he was accused of sexually assaulting a 21-year-old woman on Sunday. In September, 2012, MPD patrolman Sean McWhiter was charged with sex trafficking. Also, in September, 2012, MPD officer Margaret Taylor was charged with assaulting three youths, ages 10, 13 and 16.

The list of violent and corrupt MPD cops could go on Altogether, in 2012, over 25 MPD officers were arrested. This is important information that the CALEA needs to know. With a record like this, the MPD should not be accredited again.

We must make our voices heard, and spread the word to others about the Feb. 4 hearing. We especially encourage the families and friends of people who were killed or brutalized by the MPD to attend the CALEA hearing and speak out. Black Autonomy Copwatch, a project of the Memphis Black Autonomy Federation, will be there. We hope to see you. We canot let the MPD get away with claiming to be a model police department.

Finally, it is great that Steven Askew's family plans to seek justice for his death. However, lawsuits alone will not get justice for the mistreatment that you, family members, or friends may have received from MPD officers. Nor will lawsuits alone obtain justice against the police who may have killed your loved ones. There needs to be a movement in the streets against police brutality and misconduct, that puts pressure on the local government and the cops. It's the only way that victims and their families can win anything. Power concedes nothing without a demand, and it never will!

We thank Black Autonomy Copwatch for this important announcement. FOLLOW ME AT TWITTER, where I am @KOFFIETIME http://Twitter.com/koffietime . CoIntelPro won't let me add the Twitter gadget that would allow us to see my last five tweets at this blog, because they probably differ from my actual last five tweets. I became America's most censored person to contain news about my disabled brother's secret arrest and murder in Memphis/Shelby County Jail in 2003. The jail and the U.S. Justice Department refuse to give any accountability about the WRONGFUL DEATH OF LARRY NEAL http://WrongfulDeathOfLarryNeal.com . Therefore, even though Black Autonomy Copwatch thinks it is giving you an accurate body count, please know that there may be people whose deaths were covered up. Thank you for your interest in justice issues.

Death Sentence for Lynne Stewart

FOLLOW ME AT TWITTER, where I am @KOFFIETIME http://Twitter.com/koffietime .

When a 70-year-old defendant is overly sentenced (10 years for delivering a letter) and reportedly denied cancer treatment while incarcerated, that could be a back door death penalty. This seems to be the plan for Lynne Stewart, a human rights advocate and former activist attorney. Stewart was imprisoned for distributing press releases on behalf of her client, Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman, a/k/a "the blind sheik of Egypt." She also defended numerous members of the Black Panther Party and other oppressed persons, frequently receiving little or no pay.

Visit her website at http://LynneStewart.org to get updates on her justice quest. She wrote to supporters over the 2012 Holidays, saying, "I have some personal challenges–the newly discovered lymphatic cancer that I believe will now subject me to Chemotherapy. However, I have a strong sense of never allowing any such problem deter me from someday getting released and walking out under my own power to rejoin our struggle."

Ralph Poynter, Lynne's husband of nearly 50 years, addressed the National Lawyer's Guild convention in October 2012, in Pasadena, California. As his speaking time was running out, before the end of the speech, Poynter called upon the delegates to stand as a commitment to support Lynne’s struggle for justice and freedom, at which time the Guild members provided a thundering standing ovation. The text of his speech is below.

Brothers and Sisters, Comrades, Supporters and Friends, I hope you’re not saying Lynne Stewart is just old news. Those of you who know her personally and remember her at these conventions know she will always be a vital force among us. Those of you who were still in high school when she was arrested back in 2002 owe it to yourselves to find out about her, her career, and her case, which is still crucial to all that the Guild stands for.

Let me just say that I am Lynne’s husband and a lot prejudiced in her favor. I have lived with her, fought with her and beside her, and loved her for almost 50 years. I want her to be out of Prison where she has languished for the last three years. Did I say languish? – Lynne can’t languish – she is always the activist, always political, always compassionate. They can’t jail her spirit. But WE need her out here with us on the front lines!

The federal government locked her up because they wanted to control her defense of Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman and she believed that ethically and morally she had obligations to her client; and that her adversary should not, could not, dictate or curtail what strategy a lawyer must adopt. Maybe you would not have been audacious in the same way Lynne was, in issuing a press release, but she was representing a man who had been subjected to a vicious solitary confinement for many years, was ill, and appeared to be fading. It was “mandatory” to do this to save him. Now that Mubarak has been toppled and the new President has been calling for the repatriation to Egypt of that client, Sheik Omar; Lynne was right, and the lie has been put to the government’s strident and false claims that her actions somehow contributed to terrorism. And we are still fighting her case – now in a petition for Certiorari to the US Supreme Court due in December.

The last thing I want to speak on at this convention of lawyers are the legal arguments that are available in Lynne’s petition and the chances that any of them might have before the Supremes.

Many of you are familiar with the trial and have followed her appeal, and then her re-sentencing, and that appeal. I do want to say that Lynne’s case should be important to all criminal defense lawyers and particularly to Guild lawyers because what the Government has done to her can happen again. And it can particularly happen to Guild lawyers who regularly take on the cases of people whom the Government despises and who they believe cannot be permitted to win. In essence, using regulations promulgated by the Department of Justice and Bureau of Prisons, Lynne’s adversaries attempted to thwart her campaign to keep her client alive in Egypt and the world. Her press release, not secret, to Reuters, mirrored the many that her co-counsel Ramsey Clark had issued in the face of the same regulations. But they came after her. She is nothing more, or less, than a smart woman with great politics from a working class background. But her amazing loyalty and relationships with her clients were a threat.

Lynne’s case is important for all of you to support because someday you may be confronted in your professional life with a choice between conforming to conduct that pleases the “system”, “authority,” and doing that which you know to be right and just. Lynne chose her client and her obligation to him, and if you want to increase the safety zone for lawyers centered as she was, you will support her. To be reminded of just who Lynne is, she asked me to read a portion of a speech she gave to the Guild in Minneapolis at the convention there in 2007. It is her credo:

“I believe we have formidable enemies not unlike those in the tales of ancient days. There is a consummate evil that unleashes its dogs of war on the helpless. Our enemy is motivated only by insatiable greed with no thought of other consequences. In this enemy there is no love of the land or the creatures who live there, no compassion for the people. No thought of future generations. This enemy will destroy the air we breathe and the water we drink as long as the the dollars keep filling up their money boxes.

We have been charged here, once again, with, and for our quests, … to shake the very foundations of the continents. We go out to stop police brutality; to rescue the imprisoned; to change the rules for those who never have been able to get to the starting line, much less run the race, because of color, physical condition, gender, mental impairment.

“We go forth to preserve the air and land and water and sky and all the beasts that crawl and fly. We go forth to safeguard the right to speak and write; to join; to learn; to rest safe at home, to be secure, fed, healthy, sheltered, loved and loving, to be at peace with one’s identity.

“Our quests are formidable. We have in Washington poisonous government that spreads its venom to the body politic in all corners of the globe. We have wars – big war in Afghanistan, smaller wars in Palestine, Central Africa, Columbia, Kashmir …. Now we have those Democratic and Republican candidates and then an election, with the corporate media ready to hype the results and drown out the righteous protests.”

I now need to raise to you the plight of political prisoners in the US, (not just because Lynne is one) – numbering more and more Muslims, Earth Firsters, veterans of the 1960s, 70s, and 80s defense of minority communities, resisters, peace activists… brave men and women, held in the harshest conditions, some for more than 40 years. This is more than a worthy focus for Guild lawyers, whose opposition to illicit power should be consistent and militant. Check these folks out at Jericho and Project Salam websites. And join their struggles. Many have no legal representation or contact. Even if you correspond, or visit, or join a defense team, or take on one of their cases, your reward will be great – the satisfaction of doing the right thing with people who remain the best among us.

In closing I want to urge you to defend and champion Lynne Stewart, one of our own! Defend and champion all political prisoners! Set her free! Set ‘em all free!

Right to Life for African Americans

President Obama - We don't live in isolation. We live in a society, a government of and by and for the people. We are responsible for each other. You know, the right to worship freely and faithfully, that right was denied to Sikhs in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. The right to assemble peaceably, that right was denied shoppers in Clackamas, Oregon and moviegoers in Aurora, Colorado. That most fundamental set of rights - to life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness - fundamental rights that were denied to college students at Virginia Tech and high school students at Columbine and elementary school students in Newtown, and kids on street corners in Chicago on too frequent a basis to tolerate, and all the families who've never imagined that they'd lose a loved one to a bullet, those rights are at stake. We're responsible. http://abcn.ws/ZZ1UOr

AND FOR INNOCENT, BLACK, UNARMED PEOPLE KILLED UNDER THE COLOR OF LAW, IT IS TIME TO BE RESPONSIBLE, ACCOUNTABLE, AND JUST - ONE HUNDRED TWENTY EXTRAJUDICIAL DEATHS BETWEEN JANUARY AND JUNE 2012. SEE THE WRONGFUL DEATH OF LARRY NEAL WEBSITE http://WrongfulDeathOfLarryNeal.com

Excerpt from Gadfly Online: Yet in the midst of widespread finger pointing (not even violent movies, crime dramas and violent video games have been spared) and calls for reform of the mental health care system and gun control, not a word has been said about the greatest perpetrator of violence in American society and around the world—the U.S. government.

Violence has become our government’s calling card, starting at the top and trickling down, from President Obama’s “kill list,” which relies on drones to target insurgents, to the more than 80,000 SWAT team raids carried out every year on unsuspecting Americans by heavily armed, black-garbed commandos and the increasingly rapid militarization of local police forces across the country. We even export violence worldwide, with one of this country’s most profitable exports being weapons.

Thus, any serious discussion about minimizing the violence in our society needs to start with the government and its tendency to use violence as a means to an end, whether in matters of foreign policy or domestically . . .

American prisoners are sometimes brutalized and killed in custody, and families may be censored and terrorized to contain the information. In 2008, high government officials were indicted on allegations that they suppressed investigations following prisoner murders and brutality because they owned prison and jail stock or in exchange for same. The case did not go to trial. The United States Department of Justice (USDOJ) suppressed an investigation of Larry Neal's 18 days of secret arrest in Memphis Shelby County Jail and his murder on August 1, 2003. The USDOJ also allowed the jail, which was already under its direct supervision due to lawsuit by the United States, to submit false testimony and reports that omitted the mentally, physically disabled black man's death from reports the jail made to the feds. This huge cover-up was/is facilitated by a corrupt law firm, The Johnnie Cochran Firm, sold-out American press, state bars, government representatives, judges, and human/civil rights organizations. I am greatly censored to hide the fact that DISABLED CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES ARE KIDNAPPED AND KILLED WITHOUT ACCOUNTABILITY IN GOVERNMENT FACILITIES. 

I hoped more information about inhumane treatment of Larry Neal and other prisoners would have been aired on Press TV's documentary, "The Facade of the American Dream." But perhaps my entire interview will be shown on another documentary. Bill Windsor, executive producer of "Lawless America - The Movie," and hundreds of whistleblowers will meet in Washington, D.C. on February 4 to present testimony to Congress about corruption in government, especially the justice system. Google "Mary Neal's Lawless America Videos" to see some of my testimony about abuses of mentally ill and minority prisoners.  

See two previews of "The facade of the American Dream" at these links and embedded below:

Enjoy and share the documentary. Thank you.

Iran Gagged re USA Racism

The censorship staff is messing with this post so much! Admit your murder and stop censoring me, CoIntelPro!

Press TV reports, "An Iranian lawmaker says removing the Islamic Republic’s channels off air by a number of satellite providers has been aimed at providing ground for Israel’s attack on Gaza Strip." I believe Iran is to lose satellite privileges because the USA wishes to block release on January 15 - 17 of a three-part documentary regarding racism in the USA against black people. See a preview http://youtu.be/584tgKJwobY



I'm America's most censored person. On this documentary, I reported that my mentally, physically disabled brother was murdered after 18 days of secret arrest in Memphis Shelby County Jail in 2003. The United States Department of Justice helped the jail cover-up the murder when federal officials knowingly accepted fraudulent records and testimony that deliberately omitted reporting Larry's death http://WrongfulDeathofLarryNeal.com . The federal and local government permitted many crimes against my family to continue the coverup for over nine years, including an August 2012 burglary to steal my original court files regarding Neals v. The Cochran Firm. If mainstream news were not complicit in the conspiracy against blacks by failure to report, more legal consumers would know that new owners of The (Johnnie) Cochran Firm, our treacherous wrongful death attorneys, may be CoIntelPro agents to prevent justice for blacks nationwide and that the Justice Department is criminal. See a promo for the documentary above. The documentary "THE FACADE OF THE AMERICAN DREAM" will be published on Press TV in three parts and aired January 15 through 17. See the documentary at http://www.presstv.com unless America stops the broadcasts.

For numerous years, I have been targeted for harassment, censorship, and intimidation to prevent the public from knowing about brutality and murders of America's mentally ill citizens, especially blacks. The Neal family is denied due process of law regarding Larry's murder and The Cochran Firm fraud, and the public is largely prevented access to this information. I hope that Press TV will sell the right to release the documentary to another news agency if Press TV is prevented use of satellites to air the film. America may not wish to expose its systemic racism and hidden murders at a time when wars are being conducted supposedly for human rights, especially while planning to broaden warfare in Africa, but the truth must be exposed. Last week, McAfee issued me a statement saying that Twitter is dangerous to my computer to prevent my updating followers about the documentary's release on January 14 by Press TV. There is a elaborate conspiracy to prevent the truth in America. See five of my online efforts below:

Video 1

Video 2


They are trying to hide Video 2 of my Lawless America videos. I don't know why. They made it disappear numerous times, and I replaced it. See an example of extreme censorship I have battled for years to get the U.S. Government to stop trying to hide Larry Neal's murder for the Memphis Shelby County Jail and cover up the CoIntelPro Johnnie Cochran Firm. I published the entire article in my Justice Gagged blog, because CoIntelPro has basically taken over my Care2 membership and often redirects links to my Sharebook articles. If they disallow you access to the article in Care2 (and they probably will), please go to my Justice Gagged blog and see SECRET GOVERNMENT MURDER OF LARRY NEAL at http://JusticeGagged.blogspot.com - I don't know why they play such games to hide this murder. It is not as though any other nation will bomb America for human rights violations. They removed the Twitter widget from all my blogs where it was positioned, and McAfee antivirus software prevented me from going to Twitter on my computer, saying Twitter is dangerous. That is because my tweets are empowered by God to reveal the truth about this racist, class conscious justice system. See more articles below:
