Jerome Murdough Roasted in Jail; AP Told His Family Weeks Later

There was a time when I thought we could negotiate a confidential settlement regarding the secret arrest and wrongful death of Larry Neal. I assumed the government and The Cochran Firm would not want it known that a mentally ill heart patient who was a U.S. citizen was killed and his survivors were defrauded by a law firm carrying Johnnie Cochran's name. We initially believed Larry's death was accidental. Not only was Larry Neal's death NOT accidental, but authorities do not seem to mind if the whole world knows that mentally and physically disabled Americans are secretly jailed and killed and that such deaths are covered up. It happens regularly. Apparently, it happened to Jerome Murdough.

Jerome Murdough was a 56-year-old mentally challenged veteran who was BAKED to death in Riker's Island in February 2014, but his family was not told for weeks. Finally, AP notified Murdough's family, not prison authorities or his attorney. The prison reportedly informed Murdough's state-appointed attorney three days after his demise. Perhaps officials and the lawyer had agreed that Murdough's family must never to be told about their relative slow-roasting to death in a Riker's Island prison cell.

Like Larry Neal, Jerome Murdough had suffered numerous previous arrests due to his mental illness before his fatal incarceration. It is likely that officials had contact information for Murdough's relatives in his file. But officials withhold information about mentally ill citizens' deaths sometimes to spare themselves bad publicity and save money on wrongful death lawsuits. That is why AIMI recommends that families physically search jails when looking for missing loved ones. Merely calling authorities and filing a missing person report are insufficient, as police lied when Larry Neal was "missing" for 18 days in 2003. He was secretly incarcerated throughout that time. Larry died in Memphis Shelby County Jail, deprived of his heart medications and likely because of other inexcusable abuses of power. The Neals were NEVER told the circumstances of Larry Neal's death, and we are censored and persecuted for asking.

If not for AP contacting Murdough's relatives, Murdough might have been "missing" forever and presumed dead. That was the likely plan. If only The Cochran Firm had not pretended (under contract) to handle Larry Neal's wrongful death and negligence civil actions, the Neals would have contacted media companies much sooner than WE DID to notify the public about Larry's secret murder. The Cochran Firm swore us to silence immediately regarding Larry's death, which we did not recognize at the time as being a coldblooded, premeditated murder. By the time we discovered The Cochran Firm had secretly withheld our lawsuits while Tennessee's statute of limitations ran, nearly a year had passed, and mainstream media had obviously agreed to withhold reports about the "wrongful death of Larry Neal" (Google it). That is still the case today. As odd as it seems, Murdough's mom and sister (pictured below) are lucky. They do not have to investigate and report Murdough's death themselves. See links to reports about Jerome Murdough by AP and Mother Jones.

Mother Jones reports: 

(1) The United States operate 1,800 prisons and 3,000 jails. Like Alcatraz, they aren't about rehabilitation. They're about punishment.

(2) 80,000 people are held in solitary confinement every year.

(3) As many as half of all sexual assaults in prisons are carried out by prison guards.

(4) One fourth of the people incarcerated on Earth are incarcerated in the United States.

(5) We have 2.3 million Americans behind bars . . . they’re held at ADX Florence, Pelican Bay, and Rikers Island, where an inmate recently baked to death in his cell. Baked to death.

Rikers Island is the nation’s second-largest jail system with 12,000 inmates. A whopping 40 percent are mentally ill, and a third of them suffer from serious mental problems.

Jerome Murdough was arrested after seeking shelter from harsh weather in New York in February. The meds he was administered for bipolar disorder and schizophrenia made the former Marine more susceptible to heat. One can only hope that Murdough was asleep as he slow-roasted in a solitary jail cell at Riker's.


Mother Jones: America's Worst Prison Closed 51 Years Ago. Except It Didn't

Condolences to Murdough's family and close friends. Hundreds of thousands of people of all races and ages who were labeled as being mentally ill were roasted in Nazi ovens before WWII. Our apologies for taking so long to decriminalize mental illness in the USA and give Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill. Our messages to the public and politicians are censored. Human rights advocates at AIMI hope that more care is applied in the future to ensure the safety of America's most vulnerable citizens and that victims and survivors are given due process instead of cover-ups when the system fails.

Citizen: One who by birth or naturalization owes a debt of loyalty to a country and is due protection BY that country (certain exemptions apply). Murdough showed his loyalty to the USA by enlisting in the military, but his protection as a homeless veteran was missing in action. Larry's family shows loyalty by enlisting in military service and paying taxes; however, we were told by federal court order that whatever was done to prevent lawsuit against Shelby County Jail was "immaterial." Certain exemptions apply no matter who is in the White House or over the Justice Department.

Donald Williams, Jr. - The One Who Got Away

San Jose State University faces a $5 million lawsuit for a racial bullying case. Donald Williams, Jr., a San Jose State University (SJSU) student at the center of the racial bullying case, claimed that his adviser was aware of an “explosive” situation in the dorm room but did nothing to address it. Donald Williams, who is black, is asking for $5 million dollars from the university and threatening a lawsuit if the university rejects his request.

Without his parent's intervention in autumn 2013, Williams might have been the next black man's "suicide" at SJSU. His suite mates were calling him "fraction" to denote that a black person does not count as a whole human being. They had pictures of Hitler on the walls and the word "nigger" written on a blackboard in the suite. At one point, Williams' white suite mates tried to chain the 17-year-old college freshman with a bicycle chain. Williams was brutally mistreated because of racism. He started going home most weekends to avoid his suite mates. Williams' adviser knew about the harassment but did nothing to curtail the hate crimes by Logan Beaschler, 18, of Bakersfield; Joseph Bomgardner, 19, of Clovis; and Colin Warren, 18. Blacks comprise less than four percent of the student body at SJSU.

Donald Williams, Jr. is the one that got away. Brenden Tiggs was killed in his dorm room on campus (called a suicide) January 2014. A spokeswoman for SJSU claimed that Tiggs' death was the "first student suicide in over a decade." Not true. SJSU had other deaths that were called suicides and serious assaults of black men students within this decade and before that still need investigating, including the covered-up murder of Gregory Johnson, Jr. in 2008. See other victims listed in "SJSU Deaths and Terrorism"

"Victim in Racial Bullying Case Seeks $5 Million from University"


Gregory Johnson, Jr.'s Parents attended protests with students at SJSU after the hate crimes against Donald Williams, Jr.'s went public in 2013. Government and SJSU officials attempt to ignore the distraught parents who displayed pictures of the six-inch gash in their dead son's head. Officials said Gregory, who was over six feet tall, died by hanging from a shorter ceiling in the basement of Sigma Chi Fraternity House, but the gash indicates Gregory endured assault like Washington, another SJSU student who was seriously injured that way in 1997. Washington was in a coma for some time after someone attempted to murder him.

Racism Against Black Boys, Especially If Labeled As Mentally Disabled

This article was first published in "Dog Justice for Mentally Ill" blog.

The American Psychological Association (APA) conducted a study indicating that black boys are perceived as being older and less innocent than their white peers by Caucasian police officers and college women. The APA study was discussed during two Blogtalkradio shows: "Human Rights for Prisoners March" on March 17 and "Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill (AIMI)" broadcast on March 19. Links to both shows are below in this article. Discussions will continue Sunday, March 23 on "Human Rights Demand" channel at Blogtalkradio. 

The APA study exposed that Caucasian police officers who dehumanize blacks are more likely to use force on black boys like those featured in five photographs in this article. Juries comprised of whites (like the white college students in the APA study) seem predisposed to attribute guilt to black boys. The white research participants generally believed black boys, even 10-year-olds, to be 4.5 years older than they actually were and therefore more responsible. The research also indicates that black boys accused of crimes were likely to be presumed guilty by the white study participants. This explains why prosecutors seldom charge, and Caucasians on grand juries seldom indict, police officers who brutalize or kill black boys.

“Children in most societies are considered to be in a distinct group with characteristics such as innocence and the need for protection. Our research found that black boys can be seen as responsible for their actions at an age when white boys still benefit from the assumption that children are essentially innocent,” said author Phillip Atiba Goff, PhD, of the University of California, Los Angeles. 

Discipline for Black Boys with Mental Disabilities Compared with White Peers

According to another report released in March, “African-American students and students with disabilities are suspended at hugely disproportionate rates compared to white students.” This report was provided by the Discipline Disparities Research-to-Practice Collaborative. Its results were published in the Washington Post (link below). An excerpt:

"'In the 1972-73 school year, suspension rates were 6 percent for whites and 12 percent for African Americans at the secondary school level. [Racism is getting worse.] The most recent federal figures, for 2009-10, show rates of 7 percent for whites and 24 percent for African Americans in those grades,' said researcher Daniel J. Losen, director of the Center for Civil Rights Remedies, at University of California, Los Angeles.

"For some student groups, the rates are markedly higher. For example, among middle and high school students, 36 percent of black males with disabilities were suspended at least once in 2009-10,' Losen said." 

Mentally challenged black boys are extremely likely to experience out-of-school suspensions - not wholly because of their behavior but also because of systemic prejudice against them and the dehumanization of black boys, especially those with mental disparities. "Out-of-school suspensions are linked to academic disengagement, lower achievement and greater risks of school dropout and contact with the juvenile justice system," researchers said.

Disparity of Treatment for Black Mentally Ill Men in the Prison System

Mentally ill inmates generally receive harsher prison sentences regardless of their race, possibly because they are less able to participate in their own defense. Once incarcerated, people with serious mental illness are unlikely to have their sentences shortened by doing prison labor or being "model prisoners." In fact, prison sentences of mentally challenged inmates are often lengthened due to their lack of understanding or ability to follow CO's instructions and prison rules. One might assume from the two research studies referenced herein that mentally challenged black men are also more harshly punished in correctional institutions, like they were in school. 

Intolerance of black boys and men, especially if they have mental illness, is reflected in our prison rates. According to the United States Department of Justice, blacks comprised 12 percent to 13 percent of the nation's population but over 40 percent of the prisoners. Solitary confinement is one of the punitive methods used in corrections, and more than 80 percent of the inmates enduring solitary confinement torture in the United States are black people.

Honor student, 16, suffered ruptured testicle during a rough 'pat down' by a police woman and now faces infertility.

A brain-damaged youth in Illinois was subjected to deadly face-down take-down over his shirt tail being out of his pants. Mentally challenged people are under attack. The special needs student was stalked by the school police who insulted him, then attacked and beat him. The face-down choke hold the police officer used on the student has caused deaths. See comments about the child abuse against that disabled youngster by Care2 members at this link, if they let you:

"If it seems to you that the police are becoming more violent, you may be right. In 2011, Los Angeles County police shot to death 54 people, some 70 percent more than in 2010. Between 2008 and 2013, the number of people shot by Massachusetts police increased every year. In 2012, police in New York City shot and killed 16 people, nine more the previous year and the most in 12 years. In 2012, Philadelphia police shot 52 people the highest number in 10 years." The victims of police violence are overwhelmingly black boys and men, including mentally challenged people who were killed when officers responded to families' calls for assistance. See "How Many People are Police Killing?"

If they remove that one, try this video of the incident (also uploaded by a Caucasian)  Whites still have freedom of press in USA.

AIMI members support Rep. Tim Murphy's congressional bill, "H.R.3717 - Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act," which was introduced in December 2013 and now has over 40 co-sponsors. One provision of H.R.3717 is training for police officers and correctional officers regarding the apprehension and containment of people with mental illness without causing injuries and deaths. Please read about the bill in articles within this blog, and hear H.R.3717 discussed during "Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill" radio broadcasts on Blogtalkradio (February 12 and 19, 2014). Few members from the Congressional Black Caucus have co-sponsored H.R.3717 thus far, although research proves that black people are overly represented among families experiencing mental health crisis and most likely to suffer serious injuries and fatalities because of it.
Racism, police brutality, wrongful deaths, prisoner torture, child abuse by police officers, prison profiteering, and hate crimes against the mentally disabled, particularly non-whites, are widespread problems that will not be addressed with corrective measures unless they are first exposed to the general public as well as to our elected and appointed officials. Unfortunately, advocacy for human rights in America is censored.

Internet companies are overwhelmingly owned and operated by Caucasians, and data exposing prejudice against blacks is censored. Mary Neal was not allowed to place links to this article and to the study by the American Psychological Association at the Facebook "Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill" group. CoIntelPro/NSA assumed control of our AIMI group at Care2 years ago, which is why the "Dog Justice for Mentally Ill" blog was started at Blogger. As AIMI's membership enrollment grew, our members at Care2 began experiencing frequent DoS attacks, surreptitious removal of site content, and denial of the opportunity to use many of the features that Care2 makes available for animal rights advocates. AIMI members feel that America's mentally ill people of all races deserve at least Dog Justice. See the result of my attempt to open the link at Care2 regarding the black boy who was attacked by his school police officer:
"Care2 is Down for Maintenance"

Through online media, human rights advocates expose crimes against humanity. Oppressing black school boys and criminalizing mental illness are tragic circumstances that deserve exposure. The recent studies published by the American Psychological Association and by the Discipline Disparities Research-to-Practice Collaborative identified extreme prejudice against black boys and men, especially the mentally disabled, which account for police violence against that population and the denial of due process by whites in positions of authority over the justice system after such offenses occur. But it is difficult to share the studies and challenge officials and the general populace to change because of racial prejudice in Internet media companies and the NSA, which not only monitors but also censors Internet content by and about African Americans.

Sometimes people harbor racist viewpoints without being aware of them. For example, a recent study by Kelly M. Hoffman and Adam Waytz shows that people, including medical personnel, assume black people feel less pain than white people. The researchers asked participants to rate how much pain they would feel in 18 common scenarios. The participants rated experiences such as stubbing a toe or getting shampoo in their eyes on a four-point scale (where 1 is “not painful” and 4 is “extremely painful”). Then they rated how another person (a randomly assigned photo of an experimental “target”) would feel in the same situations. Sometimes the target was white, sometimes black. In each experiment, the researchers found that white participants, black participants, and nurses and nursing students assumed that blacks felt less pain than whites. See "Racial Perceptions of Others' Pain"

The Old South Rises Again: Shannon Nyamodi Case

I commend David Adams on the latest report about the Shannon Nyamodi case and coverage about Elizabeth Crudup's alleged assault by Dunn, NC police officers on March 14 in "The People's Champion" blog. The large KKK billboard where Elizabeth Crudup's car was towed by police in Johnston County is absolutely chilling. I had heard about that sign and appreciate Adams featuring it on an article about Elizabeth's ordeal. It does not seem wise for her to attempt to retrieve her car from Johnston County. Hopefully, the Captain of Dunn Police Department retrieves it and delivers it safely back to her as promised. It would probably not drive the car again until having it thoroughly checked by a reputable, trusted auto mechanic. An excerpt from The People's Champion is below:

"The billboard is a very alarming reality and speaks volumes about some parts of North Carolina’s social climate in 2014. Ms. Crudup says that she can’t ever recall anyone who has had their vehicle impounded in the town of Dunn being taken to a tow yard several towns away like her car had been." - See more at:

I overstand the concern about Elizabeth Crudup having been assigned night court for her "resisting arrest" charges, especially since night court is unusual in that area. One can only hope that North Carolina's elected and appointed officials along with federal officials and every just-minded person in this country will unite with Elizabeth Crudup to ensure justice for Shannon Nyamodi, her son who has been wrongly detained in solitary confinement for the better part of two years in order to force his confession and plea bargaining on false charges. May Heaven help us all. People should not await a casket on which to grandstand before standing up for innocent black youths and their mothers who are at the mercy of such people.

Stop ignoring your brothers and sisters who are being treated like Elizabeth Crudup and her son, like Mary Neal and her mother. It is our right to be able to ask for fair trials for arrested black youths like Shannon Nyamodi. It is our right to ask what happened to handicapped black men who were murdered under secret arrest like Larry Neal was.

Shannon Nyamodi's Mother: "Dunn, NC Police Beat Me"

The weeping mother whose two children were sold into slavery separate from her on the Academy Award-winning movie "12 Years a Slave" was told by the mistress of the plantation where she was conveyed, "Hush; don't carry on so. You'll forget about those children in no time."

Katherine Crudup, mother of Shannon Nyamodi, 19, was allegedly beaten and arrested by a Dunn, North Carolina police officer on March 14, 2014, while two other police officers look. She and a friend were parking at a Holiday Inn parking lot for a meeting when Katherine Crudup heard someone knock on her car window. She said that upon looking out of the window, she could see the uniform but not the officer's face. She partially rolled down her window and asked why the officer was beating on her window. He responded by ordering her out of the car. She asked what she had done. He responded by again ordering her out of the car with the added threat that he would remove her from the car if she did not exit on her own. 

After that, the story gets too horrific for me to describe. If she is able, Katherine Crudup will relay her ordeal on the "Human Rights for Prisoners March" Sunday, March 16, at 3pm EST, guest call-in no: (347) 857-3293, on "Human Rights Demand" Blogtalkradio channel. Hear the tape:

Katherine's teenage son, Shannon Nyamodi, was arrested at age 18, not long after his high school graduation, for the shooting of a Caucasian woman who he actually helped. The People's Champion reports that Rhonda McClean was shot in the face at point blank range and robbed of nearly $65,000.00 on August 16, 2013. Shannon was visiting a friend in a house on the cul-de-sac. The gunshot victim stumbled to the house where Shannon was visiting and collapsed on the porch. Shannon helped Rhonda into the house where his friend and other persons lived, and 911 was called.  Shannon waved the police and other emergency responders to the house. When questioned, the woman said her daughter was responsible for her injury. Later the same day, Shannon and his family were surprised when he, the good Samaritan in this story, was arrested for the crime.

Rhonda McLean reportedly said during Shannon's hearing that he was not the person who shot her and that he actually helped her. Rhonda's teenage daughter, who allegedly hired someone to kill and rob Rhonda, is reportedly already in custody serving a two-year sentence. Rhonda has apparently moved out of town and has now reportedly changed her story to implicate Shannon. Crudup does not know if Rhonda was also beaten and intimidated.

Shannon Nyamodi was an electrical apprentice with a clean criminal background who planned to enter military service. He has been indefinitely detained without trial since his arrest. Elizabeth Crudup continuously seeks help for Shannon - help that is not forthcoming from Maitri (MIke) Klinkosum, the defense attorney who Shannon's family retained with "enough money to purchase a house," according to Crudup. She said that Klinkosum seems to work with the prosecutor to force Shannon into a plea deal on the false charges rather than filing a motion for a reduced bond ($500k) and enforcing Shannon's right for a speedy trial. 

Shannon has been arrested without trial for 1.5 years, in solitary confinement torture for most of his incarceration. Crudup learned that Attorney Kilkosum recently applied for a continuance in her son's case. When Shannon, and later his aunt, tried to fire Klinkosum, the attorney allegedly threatened them by saying, "If I am fired from Shannon's case, I will work with the prosecutor against him to see that he gets at least 30 years." Naturally, Crudup feels that it was wrong for Shannon's defense attorney to threaten her family and delay Shannon's trial while he suffers in solitary confinement, and she has been vocal about that on numerous radio shows.

Crudup said that as the police officer repeatedly body-slammed her against the police car, he said, "So you think you're a lawyer, huh?"

It seems more urgent than ever for Shannon's prosecutor to either acknowledge the lack of evidence to take the case against Shannon to trial or try Shannon on the charges (with a different defense attorney). Shannon Nyamodi must not be tortured into making a false confession, and his mother must not be brutalized and intimidated to stop her advocacy for Shannon's Sixth and Fourteenth Amendment rights. 

Google "Shannon Nyamodi North Carolina" for more information. This high profile court case that smacks of Old South racism is being ignored by mainstream media, but news about it is going forward on the Internet and would already be viral if censorship were not applied to stories exposing injustice to African Americans and people who lack wealth. We trust that persons exposed to this information will help Katherine Crudup's beating and arrest to become more widely known. Since 2014 is an election year, one might hope that local and national officials will intervene before the Shannon Nyamodi case gets more tragic than it already is.

New Blog: "CochranFirmFraud"

Announcing my new blog, called "Cochran Firm Fraud." I put "CochranFirmFraud" in many tag lines for articles in this FreeSpeakBlog and my "JusticeGagged" blog, but most of those articles don't seem to respond to my Google searches for "Cochran Firm Fraud." In fact, The Cochran Firm's posts now appear first when one inputs "Cochran Firm Fraud" in the Google browser now rather than my many articles to warn the public, particularly black and brown and red legal consumers, about that unethical law firm. I can imagine that The Cochran Firm might have its secretaries and word processors clicking that firm's links repeatedly to make them top mine on the Google search for "Cochran Firm Fraud." Therefore, the new blog is necessary.
Cochran Firm Fraud Blog 

At "Cochran Firm Fraud" blog, you have an opportunity to read and hear about the numerous lawsuits against The Cochran Firm by its former clients, attorneys, law firms that it partnered with on certain cases. Links to lawsuits and radio interviews are available as well as videos. We may also give honorary "Cochran Firm Fraud Awards" to other lawyers who replicate The Cochran Firm's lack of ethics and total disregard for the Code of Professional Responsibility in handling clients' cases. Here is a sample from the new blog:

Black litigants suing for racial discrimination got an Uncle Tommy prank from their lawyers, The (Johnnie) Cochran Firm frauds! They could not believe it, and it wasn't exactly a prank . . .
Hadley v. The Cochran Firm Frauds

WE, THE DEFRAUDED FORMER CLIENTS, invite you to read about the white supremacists and black Confederate soldiers who partnered with Johnnie Cochran after Cochran announced that he planned to sue the United States and certain major corporations that owned or used leased slaves and practiced Jim Crow policies against African Americans. He became terminally ill and died soon after. After that sad, early termination, the civil rights attorneys who worked with Cochran in his Los Angeles office were reportedly either fired or forced out of the firm and presumably replaced with people who apparently agreed to give clients substandard legal services, whereas Johnnie Cochran's lawyers would not.

Unlike The Cochran Firm, I cannot afford a room full of secretaries and word processors to click on my links repeatedly to ensure that people of color are warned about this law firm that is frequently sued for working behind its clients' backs to benefit its clients' defendants. The firm was also accused of railroading certain criminal defendants into jails and prisons. Therefore, we rely on YOU to share the news articles presented in "CochranFirmFraud" blog. Everything I publish is absolutely true and has evidence presented or available.

SOMEBODY hired cyber stalkers to interfere with and delete my Internet posts. Above is a picture of MaryLovesJustice holding the sign saying "COCHRAN FIRM FRAUD." That is the opposite side of the same sign saying "WRONGFUL DEATH OF LARRY NEAL." If you are in Atlanta, you may have seen me displaying the sign at Centennial Olympic Park, the annual Malcolm X picnic, Occupy Atlanta, in front of NAACP (bougie Negro) events, during marches for Troy Davis, workers' rights, anti-death penalty rallies, and walking down Peachtree Street, which has a Cochran Firm office that "disappears" when one sues the firm for fraud and malpractice. I wish I could rent a blimp to fly a huge sign daily throughout the summer.

Below is news about Johnnie Cochran that I was pleased to see another defrauded client might have published - I did not. It delights one to know that more former clients are also taking action to warn our people. The world is learning anew what a great legal warrior Johnnie Cochran was. We can only imagine what happened to him after announcing his intention to sue for slavery and Jim Crow reparations. He probably sold interest in his firm to raise money for the reparations lawsuit. White supremacists and black Confederate soldiers ruined his law firm but not his legacy. Johnnie Cochran would not have defrauded my then 80-year-old mother to help Memphis Shelby County Jail escape accountability for the kidnapping and Wrongful Death of Larry Neal, my mentally and physically disabled brother, but the partners who now control his firm did.

FBI, Be Honest About Prisoner Abuse

Is there really any federal effort to prevent prisoner abuse and
demand accountability for past crimes against humanity?

Russia Today reports "FBI investigates private prison company’s oversight of Idaho’s ‘Gladiator School’"
The American Civil Liberties Union sued CCA on behalf of inmates of the correctional center in 2010, claiming the violence in the prison – due in part to understaffing – was so bad, it was called “Gladiator School.”

People are excited and hopeful to read about the FBI investigating prisons and jails or municipalities for patterns of misconduct. If a pattern of inmate abuse, police brutality, or corruption is found, the facility or municipality may be placed under federal overview by the USDOJ and sign an Agreement to follow federal recommendations for Change. If racketeering, brutality, and violations against human and civil rights continue in the facilities and municipalities after being placed under federal overview, most people do not know what happens then. I know. The feds sometimes help the facilities and municipalities hide their crimes, such as regarding the secret arrest and Wrongful Death of Larry Neal in Memphis Shelby County Jail in 2003, while that correctional facility was under jurisdiction by the United States Department of Justice after lawsuit by the USA for inmate abuse.

Therefore, the investigation, government lawsuit, and federal oversight are lies to defraud the people. Survivors' families may then be surveilled, censored, and financially persecuted to prevent disclosure about the unrequitted murders of inmates or other continued patterns of abuse. The solution is much simpler than those being employed. Try justice. It works.
I just sent the message above via email to and with copies to my own email boxes. I received no receipt and therefore assume the cyber stalkers prevented the addressees' receipt. Pretending not to know about crimes by having NSA interrupt emails will not work, since I have return receipts from the U.S. Postal Service showing that these matters have already gone to the attention of parties who are responsible for demanding accountability and rendering justice for the police kidnapping and murder of a disabled American, Larry Neal.

After no receipt arrived to my email account saying that my message was received by the White House or the United States Department of Justice, I went to the White House online and entered the information above as a comment. Again, I received no receipt. Even when receipts do come, officials usually deny having received my correspondence, as happened when I filed a complaint with the Office of Inspector General over the United States Department of Justice.

When the Neals sued The Johnnie Cochran Firm in federal court for defrauding our family to help Shelby County Jail hide the secret arrest and murder of Larry Neal, and Judge Timothy Batten dismissed our lawsuit, saying that whatever The Cochran Firm did to prevent accountability for the police kidnapping and murder of Larry Neal, in the jail that was already under federal oversight, was "IMMATERIAL." Whether that is because my family is too black and poor to demand accountability after the government murder of our disabled relative, I cannot say. For whatever reason, our requests for records and accountability are still treated as being "immaterial" today.

Federal officials should be honest about prisoner abuses that happen AFTER federal oversight is in place. Kidnappings and murders such as Larry Neal experienced should not be covered-up after the feds have oversight of facilities and municipalities, but they should be investigated and accountability demanded, no matter how much money or prison stocks may be offered to withhold justice (see the Chaney and Gonzales indictment in Wallacy County, Texas, 2008). Investigations and overview by criminals only yield more crimes and racketeering.

Maitri Klinkosum Blocks Nyamodi Trial

Elizabeth Crudup discusses her son, Shannon Nyamodi, 19, who has been wrongly incarcerated in Franklin County Jail since August 16, 2012. He was charged with robbery and attempted murder on a Caucasian woman who he actually helped after a white youth allegedly shot her. Even the victim denies that Shannon is her assailant, but Shannon was arrested and is being held in solitary confinement torture to FORCE a plea deal. His attorney is apparently his worst enemy. See a video embedded below with Crudup requesting help:

Rhonda McClean was shot in the face at point blank range and robbed of nearly $65,000.00 on August 16, 2013. Shannon heard her screaming for help and rendered aid. Later the same day, he and his family were surprised that Shannon was arrested for the crime. Donald James “DJ” Chalk posted the picture below wherein he is surrounded by cash on his Facebook wall the next day. The People's Champion reports, "He just happens to be the source from which the conspiracy theory between Shannon Nyamodi and the victim’s daughter originated." See more at:

The defense attorney is apparently double-crossing this family. Shannon's family raised a substantial fee and retained the defense attorney, who is a former prosecutor: MAITRI (MIKE) KLINKOSUM. He seems to be working with the prosecution instead of working for his client. He tries to get Shannon to take a plea deal instead of motioning for a bond reduction and a speedy trial on these trumped up charges. Shannon is apparently denied a trial because his attorney wants Shannon to lie on himself. Klinkosum requests a continuance in the pleading below, saying he is too involved in another case. Meanwhile, Shannon has been jailed under torturous conditions for nearly two years awaiting trial.
"Maitri (MIke) Klinkosum Requests a Continuance"

More info is at the website

Elizabeth Crudup requests letters and cards of encouragement for Shannon. Protests are being planned for Shannon's immediate release or trial on the charges (Google "Justice for Shannon Nyamodi Protests Planned"). Tell the innocent, tortured youth that "the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice" (MLK).

“Segregation, isolation, separation, cellular, lockdown, Supermax, the hole, Secure Housing Unit … whatever the name, solitary confinement should be banned by States as a punishment or extortion technique,” UN Special Rapporteur on torture Juan E. Méndez told the General Assembly’s third committee, which deals with social, humanitarian and cultural affairs, saying the practice could amount to torture.

A University of Michigan neuroscientist suggested Friday that the physical impact on the brain could be just as significant if not moreso, and could “dramatically change the brain” in just a matter of days. Speaking on a panel about solitary confinement, neuroscientist Huda Akil said a number of other studies have documented how each of the factors involved in solitary confinement change the physical shape of the brain.

See more information about damaging effects solitary confinement has on inmates in "Legal Victories" blog at "Limiting Solitary Confinement in Corrections"

When Shannon and his aunt tried to fire Klinkosum, he allegedly threatened Shannon's family. Klinkosum allegedly swore to them on separate occasions that if he is fired, he will work with the prosecutor to get Shannon jailed for 30 years. They are foreign-born women, and Crudup's sister may not know that is illegal. A Bar complaint has been filed. The family will try to get this man off the case so that a public defender can be appointed. Of course, they would prefer a private attorney, but Shannon's family paid Klinkosum a SIGNIFICANT amount of money for Shannon's defense and exhausted their funds. 

The Sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees all citizens a speedy, public trial with adequate defense. Shannon does not deserve to have his case in the hands of a man who allegedly threatened his family and his freedom and has been instrumental in lengthening Shannon's incarceration by filing motion(s) for continuance. Shannon's court docket will reveal how many times this has happened. In another case this writer covered, a defense attorney and prosecutor in Pennsylvania took turns refusing trial until the defendant, Terrell Scott, a mentally ill black youth, remained incarcerated without any conviction for 4.5 years. Scott, who retained permanent injuries from beatings, finally plea bargained when it appeared he would continue to be indefinitely detained and denied trial. It is a serious conflict of interest for defense attorneys, prosecutors, judges and lawmakers to own prison investments.

At 3pm EST on Saturday, March 8, 2014, we spoke about Shannon Nyamodi's wrongful arrest with Elizabeth Crudup and others. Her interview is archived at the "Human Rights Demand" channel on Blogtalkradio. Hear the tape any time at

Background on this case is at "Shannon Nyamodi, a Good Samaritan Punished"

For a thorough explanation of how unethical Klinkosum is in his dealings in this case, see
The People's Champion: "Proof Something Is In the Water in North Carolina . . . "

Kulture also follows the Nyamodi case, although mainstream news does not.
Cover up? Man being held for crime that victim allegedly says he didn’t commit

Injustices that elitists in politics and mainstream media censor or slant need public attention. For that reason, protests are planned to support 'Justice for Shannon Nyamodi.' Shannon's supporters are asked to take action:


1) Justice for Shannon Nyamodi Telephone Campaign: Call elected and appointed officials and protest Shannon's indefinite detention without trial, especially in solitary confinement torture. Telephone and fax numbers are listed at this web page:
2) In-person protests: Nyamodi's supporters are to meet at courthouses in their own areas for an hour either at lunchtime or after work every Monday to demand an end to Nyamodi's indefinite detention without trial and that he is immediately released from solitary prison torture. Solitary confinement, which causes mental illness in some inmates, is apparently intended to make Nyamodi desperate enough to plea bargain on the false charges. 

Indefinite detention and cruel solitary confinement must not be allowed to force defendants in America into false confessions. Stand for the Sixth Amendment.

"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"

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.

Loving Justice Scalia - Again!

Exposed: Loving Justice Scalia!: Our "Inalienable Rights "Are Really Quite Alienable I greatly admire U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's honesty ... In January 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court Justice said the Constitution is DEAD, DEAD, DEAD!

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 will again be interned in concentration camps, like Japanese-Americans were. 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
Scalia was responding to a question about the court's 1944 decision in Kore­ma­tsu v. United States, which upheld the convictions of Gordon Hira­ba­ya­shi and Fred Kore­ma­tsu for violating an order to report to an internment camp.

"Well, of course, Kore­ma­tsu was wrong. And I think we have repudiated in a later case. But you are kidding yourself if you think the same thing will not happen again," Scalia told [law] students and faculty during a lunchtime question-and-answer session. "That's what was going on — the panic about the war and the invasion of the Pacific and whatnot. That's what happens. It was wrong, but I would not be surprised to see it happen again, in time of war. It's no justification, but it is the reality," he said.


This writer does not need Scalia's warnings about America's tendencies toward Nazism. My mentally, physically disabled brother, Larry Neal, was murdered after 18 days of secret arrest in 2003 in Memphis Shelby County Jail, and my family is censored, intimidated, and financially persecuted for asking, "What Happened to Larry Neal?" I also have a friend, Elaine Riddick, who was forcibly sterilized in America's eugenics program (from 1930's to 1970s) to prevent her from giving birth to more "undesirables" (black people). So I already know. But I thank Scalia for warning the rest of you.

I was very concerned when the U.S. Department of Justice started financing protests after Trayvon Martin's murder, and an employee from Homeland Security went online with messages saying "There's going to be a race war!" I figured they were up to no good - looking for an opportunity to use those concentration camps if they could incite people to violence. 

Watch out if America goes to war again. Be prayerful if she feels threatened by a particular ethnic group again. The camps are waiting. Numerous states have nullified NDAA, including Virginia, Michigan, California, and others. More have bills to nullify NDAA under consideration. You can stay abreast of state nullifications at PANDA.

We also thank Vice President Biden for his statement to a mostly black audience, saying, "He'll have you back in chains." We especially appreciate this announcement from the administration that approved concentration camps and financed them.

See the film below that demonstrates the collusion between psychiatry, racism, and murder. Why are police and correctional officers shielded by the government after brutalizing and killing mental patients like my brother, Larry Neal? Why are biomass incinerators (ovens) situated in black communities and on prison grounds? What happened to the 5,000 murdered prisoners that former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney told us about after Katrina? Why are mentally ill people warehoused in prisons, usually in solitary? Eugenics and psychiatry have a history dating from before WWII. Hundreds of thousands of people labeled "mentally ill" in Germany were murdered en masse. Racism and Psychiatry
SORRY! One way to get a YouTube video taken offline is for Mary Neal to feature it in an article. Please just go to YouTube and find videos by searching for "racism and psychiatry," and you might happen to see it. Here is another interesting documentary about science and racism:
