"Justice for Shannon Nyamodi" Protest Planned


Shannon Nyamodi

DO YOU ONLY CARE ABOUT CORPSES? QUESTION: How many of you are willing to picket for justice for Shannon Nyamodi at your own courthouses? His 6th Amendment right to a speedy, public trial is being violated to prevent his case from going to court. Even the alleged victim says Shannon is not the man who shot her. The prosecution does not want to take the case to court or try this weak case and lose. See the latest report and background information about Nyamodi at the two links below:


Cover up? Man being held for crime that victim allegedly says he didn’t commit

Background on the case: "Shannon Nyamodi: A Good Samaritan Imprisoned"
http://humanrightsforprisonersmarch.blogspot.com/2013/12/shannon-nyamodi-good-samaritan.html

Elizabeth Crudup's son is being held in solitary confinement torture in Franklin County, NC jail. She has not seen him in months, and four(4) court dates have passed without the jail producing Shannon Nyamodi for trial. WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO SHANNON TO FORCE A FALSE CONFESSION? IF HE IS MURDERED, THEN WILL YOU CARE ENOUGH TO PROTEST?

Today, Terrell Scott was released from a Pennsylvania prison after being indefinitely detained for 4.5 years to force a plea bargain. He was brutally treated - beaten, raped, exposed to HIV, and tortured with solitary confinement. He is now deaf in one ear and blind in one eye - all of that brutality was done to Terrell Scott. Officers of the court claimed Terrell Scott was too "crazy" for trial, but he was deemed competent for plea bargaining. Is this how prosecutors are allowed to avoid the embarrassment of losing court cases?

Shannon has been held without trial for nearly two years. Will you stand up for the Sixth Amendment by picketing for Shannon Nyamodi in your own city at your own courthouse, or do you await another black youth's corpse to get angry? Is this our children's future - indefinite detention until making false confessions to get out of jail? See the message from Elizabeth Crudup below.

Elizabeth Crudup They will not let me see or communicate with Shannon. We have had 4 Court dates, where they refused to produce him. Hoping to hear from Harvard law school criminal justice institute in the morning.

  
If Crudup fails to hear from Harvard Law, or if they offer no IMMEDIATE SOLUTIONS, we must protest for Shannon Nyamodi's immediate release or a soon court date that he is allowed to actually attend. Shannon is a youth in OUR village. Franklin County, North Carolina must not be allowed to capture an innocent black youth and treat him like a runaway slave. Our youths must not be indefinitely detained on indefensible criminal charges without our protest. Americans must not be denied their right to a speedy, public trial with competent counsel appointed, especially not working 18-year-old youths who graduated from high school and have no criminal background, like Shannon.

We congratulate Terrell Scott and his mother, Holly Alston, on his homecoming. It is an indictment against America and each of us that nothing was done to deliver Terrell Scott from the Pennsylvania prison before he suffered permanent injuries and confessed to crimes that never happened. A white woman lied on Terrell Scott after he reported her neglect and abuse of her children. His allegations were investigated and found to be valid, and the children were removed from her home. After that, according to an apology the woman delivered to Terrell's brother, she wanted to retaliate. Shannon suffered behind bars for the next 4.5 years with his right to trial denied. This must not be the fate of Shannon Nyamodi, especially since even the supposed victim said Shannon was not her assailant.

On Monday, March 17, 2014, assemble with concerned citizens at a courthouse in your own area, either at lunchtime or after work, and protest Shannon Nyamodi's continued indefinite detention and denial of his Sixth Amendment right to a trial. If anything changes in his circumstances before March 17, I will publish it here.


*Sixth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution*

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defense.


Black Youths Should Not Have to Be in Body Bags
to Get Our Attention.

The attorney is apparently double-crossing this family. Shannon is denied a trial because his attorney wants him to lie on himself and take a plea deal rather than going to court. See the document at the link:

When Shannon's aunt tried to fire the man, he allegedly swore he would work with the prosecutor against the family and get Shannon jailed for 30 years. They are foreign-born women and the sister may not know that is illegal. We will try to get this man off the case so that a public defender can be appointed. The family paid this present lawyer a SIGNIFICANT amount of money and do not have funds for more legal fees. Stay tuned.
