Petition Heaven for Justice



Christians must pray together for justice and compassion. We are bombarded with petitions to sign for officials to render justice, but we must first petition Heaven for whatever we need. For we remember that it is God who promised to cause men to give unto our bosoms. "I myself will tend my sheep and have them lie down, declares the Sovereign LORD" (Ez. 34:15). This blog is a place to read about and pray for one another regarding justice issues.


Like most human and civil rights activists, I have spent years speaking truth to power and admonishing our decision makers to be just and to honor the Golden Rule. Some improvements have been made in some areas, but I am reminded that the Bible says that we have not because we ask not or because we ask amiss. We must make our prayers and supplications to God.


I have many online friends who are atheists, agnostics, and who serve other gods. We can and do fight injustice together, but we cannot pray together. Just send good vibes.

This activist will soon leave online advocacy. I leave this with you:

"If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." ~2 Chronicles 7:14


Pray for justice and compassion
in the name of Jesus Christ.

"Kill the heathen negress!" ~Texas

The following article is re-published from our blog, "Davis-McPhail Truth Committee" at http://DMTruth.blogspot.com ~ Davis/MacPhail Truth Committee is an anti-death penalty organization established to contest capital punishment, especially in cases where guilt is not irrefutably proved or extenuating circumstances exist. Abolitionists "continue to fight this fight," as Troy Davis asked. Please see the index to "Exposed" blog, opportunity to follow this blog, and a link to a petition to free Mary Neal from censorship. The widgets should be on the left margin, but anti-DP articles are censored more than others. Thank you for your interest in justice. (Seventeen(17) links, three(3) photos, and two(2) videos are in this article.)

A death warrant has been issued for Kimberly McCarthy, a 51-year-old woman, by the State of Texas. Her scheduled execution date is June 26, 2013.


Execution Watch reports:
"Kimberly McCarthy is a former crack addict who was sentenced to death for the 1997 slaying of an elderly, Caucasian woman [her neighbor, Dorothy Booth, age 71], during a home robbery near Dallas. McCarthy is the former wife of New Black Panther Party founder Aaron Michaels, with whom she has a son. She is one of 10 women on Texas death row. She is the only woman with a scheduled execution. Three of the nearly 500 people Texas has put to death in the modern era have been women. The week before her scheduled execution of April 3, 2013, McCarthy's attorneys persuaded a judge to delay it until June 26.

State District Judge Larry Mitchell's action formalized an agreement . . . between Dallas County District Attorney Craig Watkins and McCarthy's attorney that McCarthy's punishment should be put off until the fate of death penalty-related bills now in the Texas Legislature are determined. Lawmakers are about halfway through their six-month session.

McCarthy's attorney, Maurie Levin, contends the jury in McCarthy's case was unfairly selected on the basis of race. [Of the 13 jurors selected in McCarthy's case, all were Caucasians except one.]"


A CBS news affiliate reports that DNA evidence linked McCarthy to Booth’s murder and the murders of two other women: Maggie Harding, 81, and Jettie Lucas, 85, who were not Caucasians. She was never tried on those other two cases. McCarthy is scheduled to become the 500th execution in Texas since the year 1976. DPIC reports that 1,089 of the 1,332 executions since 1976 were done in the South, where there is a church on nearly every corner: the Bible Belt.

McCarthy killed a trusting, elderly neighbor who she reportedly asked for a cup of sugar to gain entrance to her victim's home. While McCarthy was addicted to drugs, she preyed on helpless people. The same can be said of Kermit Gosnell, the abortionist who murdered newborn babies as they lay crying on his table after late-term abortions. Both McCarthy and Gosnell were black medical professionals who killed repeatedly. McCarthy was an occupational therapist, and Gosnell was a doctor. Gosnell did not face the death penalty, because he was a very wealthy man in Pennsylvania. She was a working class black woman in the South, whose ex-husband was connected to a radical political organization. Capital punishment sentences depend on who the defendant is in terms of his or her economic status, the region of the country the defendant lives in, the defendant's race, and the victims' race. Gosnell killed black babies, but McCarthy killed a white woman.

When health care professionals in Louisiana killed their patients during Katrina, none of them were even imprisoned. Many police officers have been filmed killing unarmed citizens, and they suffered no prosecution whatsoever. The same district attorneys who give persuasive arguments for the death penalty regarding some defendants generally withhold prosecution when police officers do violence, perhaps to help the city avoid liability for wrongful deaths the officers caused. See the second of two videos embedded at the end of this article portraying numerous instances of police violence, from YouTube at http://youtu.be/Dxaxd8MNjQo . It appears that some killers are excused from prosecution if such prosecution would expose the city to wrongful death litigation. Sincere outrage over murders would compel the same response to every murder, but that is not what happens. There exists great disparity in application of the law.

Who shares the blame that McCarthy was addicted to crack cocaine and became a desperate junkie looking for her next fix? There is reason to believe the CIA introduced crack, a highly addictive drug, into America, possibly to derail African Americans. Wikipedia reports, "The involvement of the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in cocaine trafficking in Central America during the Regan Administration as part of the Contra war in Nicaragua has been the subject of several official and journalistic investigations since the mid-1980s." See "CIA and Contras cocaine trafficking in the U.S." at Wikipedia.

An even more compelling reason to spare McCarthy and end capital punishment, especially in Bible Belt states like Texas, is that God forbids executions throughout the New Testament. Jesus said, "You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.' But I tell you, do not resist an evil person" (Matthew 5:38). Capital punishment is incongruous with Christianity, yet most executions occur in the Bible Belt and are sanctioned by so-called Christians.

People who disregard commandments from Jesus might want to destroy a drug addicted murderer, but it is impossible now to kill that person. No murderer lives in McCarthy's cell. Kimberly McCarthy has been imprisoned for 15 years. She is drug-free and devoted to God. Texas has no opportunity at this point to "kill the heathen negress." Texas can only kill a vulnerable, repentant woman who prays for mercy, and reveal itself to be a heartless, vengeful heathen that is only interested in making its 500th execution in the modern DP race. (Photo: McCarthy in 1998)

Nearly 2,000 people have signed the following petition to spare Kimberly McCarthy:

The family, friends and supporters of Kimberly McCarthy are petitioning Governor Rick Perry and the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles in an effort to save Kimberly from being put to death by the State of Texas. Kimberly suffered from a severe addiction to crack cocaine in the 1990's, and her life went into a downward spiral into the underworld of drugs. Her association with the wrong people coupled with her out of control drug use became a lethal combination that led to tragedy. Prior to her drug use, Kimberly had no criminal record and was in the field of helping and healing the sick as an occupational therapist. When she was introduced to drugs, her life took a dark and destructive turn that led to tragedy - a tragedy that she lives with daily for which she is deeply remorseful. Over the years, Kimberly's faith in God has strengthened. Her spirit and personality touch each and every person she encounters. We are asking that Kimberly's sentence be commuted. We ask that the State of Texas show mercy! Killing Kimberly will not bring the victim back. It will only create more suffering and heartache and another victim. She could be such a positive influence to others. God can use her to touch the lives of other women headed down the road to destruction.  http://www.change.org/petitions/stop-the-execution-of-kimberly-mccarthy

Texas Moratorium Network carries information about bills the Texas House of Representatives is considering that could have impact on McCarthy's sentence:

Next Tuesday, April 16, the House Committee on Criminal Jurisprudence will hear testimony on HB 2458 that would prohibit seeking or imposing the death penalty on the basis of a person’s race.

Next Tuesday, the House Criminal Jurisprudence Committee will also hear testimony on HB 189 by Rep. Dutton that would affect what is allowable testimony in death penalty cases.

(b) Testimony of an informant or of an alleged accomplice of the defendant is not admissible if the testimony is given in exchange for a grant or promise by the attorney representing the state or by another of immunity from prosecution, reduction of sentence, or any other form of leniency or special treatment. Article 38.14 does not apply to accomplice testimony described by this subsection.

(c) A statement against interest made by the defendant to a person who at the time of the alleged statement was in custody with or imprisoned or confined with the defendant is admissible only if the statement is corroborated by an electronic recording.


The justice system seems more concerned about money than justice. Therefore, effective anti-DP advocates should launch lawsuits after each execution if some cause for legal action can be found. Whether or not advocates win, the lawsuits will demand public attention to the state-sponsored murder long past the condemned person's death, and such litigation will increase the cost of conducting executions, which is already considerably more than life in prison without parole. If McCarthy is executed, anti-DP advocates should sue the CIA for distributing drugs in African American communities in the first place. Sue on behalf of McCarthy, who was changed from a well adjusted, working mother into a crack addict, and sue on behalf of her victim, who would not have been murdered if not for McCarthy's crack cocaine habit.

If McCarthy is executed, she will be the first woman subjected to capital punishment in America since 2010. Death Penalty Information Center reports that 51 women have been executed in the United States since the year 1900. For more information, access "Women and the Death Penalty"

Malcolm Shabazz killed in Mexico

'I’m confirming, per US Embassy, on bhalf of family, the tragic death of Malcolm Shabazz, grandson of Malcolm X.' ~Terrie Williams on Twitter
http://www.eurweb.com/?p=327943

The news outlet, citing the US Embassy as the source of the information, is reporting that Shabazz, 29, was killed today, Thursday, May 9. The report says he died from injuries sustained after being thrown off building as he was being robbed in Tijuana, Mexico.


Malcolm published a letter exactly two months ago about his detainment in February, which prevented his trip to Iran. He planned to join people gathered there for an international media conference. See Shabazz's last letter to the public:

Malcolm Shabazz Reveals FBI Harassment
http://marylovesjustice.blogspot.com/2013/03/malcolm-shabazz-reveals-fbi-harassment.html

The reported death of Malcolm Shabazz is unsubstantiated at this time. Hopefully, the report about his murder is untrue. If it is true, we send condolences to his family members who already suffered so much.

Malcolm Shabazz complained about his censorship, like I do. We were to be guests together on an online radio show on July 9, 2012, arranged by Dr. Randy Short. The stalkers allowed me to speak a little at first, but they never did let Malcolm on the line. Dr. Short left the conversation to see if he could connect Malcolm using three-way calling, but then he also had trouble reconnecting. I started tweeting about the stalkers censoring free speech in America at Twitter and on my Facebook wall. Finally, Dr. Short was allowed to join us again, but Malcolm never was. Here is one of my @koffietime tweets about that incident:

Malcolm Shabazz & I were kept off this show tonight re increase in post-Holder in USA  9:49 PM - 7 Jul 12

I spoke about that radio interview that didn't happen when interviewed recently by PressTV about Malcolm Shabazz: "Malcolm Shabazz Arrested a Few Months Before Death." They may let you see/hear it.
http://www.presstv.ir/usdetail/303013.html

UPDATE August 12, 2013

Dear Mary Neal:

We are having a protest at the Mexican Embassy in Washington, D.C. on August, Friday 16, 2013 at 10:00 a.m.

Why: we continue to have a lack of and/or conflicting information, concerning the death of Malcolm Shabazz on May 9, 2013.

I am working with a contingent of organizations that will go to the Mexican Embassy in DC to find out the truth. Razakhan Shaheed who represents The Philadelphia Innocence Project, Pam Africa who represents The International Concern Family and Friends of Mumia Abu- Jamal and Basiymah Muhammad 4th Assistant President General of the World Body of The( UNIA) United Negro Improvement Association and Philadelphia President General of (UNIA) Mshindi, and Dr. Randy Short who represents Black Autonomy Network Organization, International Human rights Association for American Minorities, the Anti-Depo Provera Clergy Coalition We will be meeting at the Mexican Embassy, 1911 Pennsylvania Ave., August 16th at 10:00 am. All those that are interested meet you there, if you need more information contact me.

Cyberstalking re Willie Manning Execution and Sarah Dozier Guest Book


Atlanta Journal Constitution, I posted a comment to Sarah Dozier's Funeral Guest Book days ago. She was also a victim of The Cochran Firm Fraud. WHY are my condolences censored?

It is time for anti-DP activists to be proactive. SWAB Willie Manning's mouth and get a lock of his hair. Place an injunction against destruction of the evidence in his case. KEEP PRESSING for a DNA test after his execution. Exonerate him postmortem, if he was innocent, and sue Mississippi. The public has a right to see how many innocent people are murdered with poisons bought with citizens' tax money to continue Dixie Lynchings in USA.

If Mississippi insists on carrying out this lynching Tuesday, May 7, postmortem is the only way we can do a DNA test. And we MUST stop dropping the debate once an inmate is murdered. We must do as Troy Davis asked and "continue to fight this fight." It is wrong to walk away from the grave of a possibly innocent person and await the next one and the next one and the next one. We must show states that we will stay on the case of the men they kill until the truth is known and states are sued. All they care about is money - there is extra money in every death penalty case. Take that money back in righteous lawsuits. See "STOP DIXIE LYNCHINGS: Willie Manning" in my JusticeGagged blog  

As I stated in my article, "Internet Censorship American Style," it is erroneous to think that although every justice quest by The People has been attacked throughout history by unscrupulous oppressors, such powers have suddenly obtained respect for The People's rights. They have no qualms about doing online censorship to continue suppressing those rights through treacherous law firms like The Johnnie Cochran Firm and demonic cyber stalkers who prevent signatures and comments on petitions and even dead victims' guest books.


Read about petition sabotage at my article "Internet Censorship American Style" 
http://freespeakblog.blogspot.com/2010/07/internet-censorship-how-they-do-it.html

It is abundantly clear from activists' posts in online social media and even in journalists' articles in the mainstream media that everyone recognizes the main objective of America's prison industrial complex is to generate prison profits. Death penalty cases are more expensive to prosecute, and prisons earn substantially more to warehouse condemned inmates than they do from inmates in the general prison population. Therefore, although Americans object strenuously to capital punishment in light of 306 overturned wrongful convictions due to DNA test evidence, including 18 men who were on death row, capital punishment continues, and DNA tests continue to be disallowed by unscrupulous district attorneys and judges who do not care if they facilitate the lengthy incarcerations and murders of innocent people. 


People who do not even care if they wrongly incarcerate or kill innocent people are sociopaths. Therefore, appealing to their sense of justice or their consciences is futile. They have no sense or justice or conscience. They are interested in dominating others through their power, and they are interested in gaining more money for the prison investors. 

The most effective way for anti-DP activists to fight executions (especially without irrefutable proof of guilt or executions of mentally ill inmates) is to SUE after the deaths. Sue for wrongful death every time a mentally ill or potentially innocent man or woman dies. Civil actions will make the State the defendant, and the State must then prove that its use of capital punishment was merited. Turn the tables on executioners. Whether or not they win in court, make the State spend the time and money necessary to defend itself against the wrongful death lawsuits, especially after questionable executions. Wrongful execution lawsuits will also lengthen the bad publicity beyond the inmates' deaths. Make executions even more expensive than they are now, and more citizens will join us in saying, "DEATH to the DEATH PENALTY!"
