AIMI Video Library, by Mary Neal

AIMI members have collected videos to help in advocacy to decriminalize mental illness, repeal the death penalty, and ensure human rights for prisoners.  View them at the below link. 

Videos collected by AIMI:

The videos help to make it clear that treatment is needed for mental illness and drug addiction, not incarceration.  Psychiatrists and counselors are more qualified to address such problems than police and prison guards.  More treatment centers are needed for drugs, alcohol, and mental illness (in-patient and outpatient facilities), not more prisons.  See an index of AIMI's video library below.

Below is a sample video, called Schizophrenia.  It shows how important treatment is.

AIMI's video library's films are available help the public to understand mental illness and what happens to mentally ill prisoners.  There is also a Taser series.  See Inman Morales' death caused by Tasering during a lunacy arrest attempt, and more.

Universal Declaration of Human Rights -

On June 27, 2009, many people marched for the wrongly convicted. A video on the website, Freedom March USA, features beautiful imagery and photos of people who were freed by DNA testing. Hopefully, Thomas Arthur will someday join the exonerated. His DNA proved negative in July, but he remains on Alabama's death row (December). THE VIDEO IS CALLED "I'M WAITING." THOUSANDS MORE ARE INNOCENT, ACCORDING TO THE VIDEO'S ESTIMATE.


The most life-affirming video ever. 

The euthanasia article I wrote to accompany the above video at this link:
... Stay Back Doctor Kevorkian!

The Wrongly Convicted,
by The Innocence Project, features people who were freed by DNA evidence.

More videos are added from time to time, so please visit soon and often.  Thank you for your interest in decriminalizing mental illness and in other human rights issues, especially as they pertain to prisoners.
