A Tale of two States
Paid for your crime and did your time yet? Not if you’re Indigenous, Working Class or belong to any other minority but Middle Class, White and Christian. Andrew Bolt with a history of guilty charges against him will tell the world that you can’t be trusted if you speak out on Q&A or protest on any other platform reinforcing this cultural bias in our justice system yet maintains he’s an exceptional victim.(ODT)
Victoria is the only state or territory in Australia that does not have a spent convictions scheme, which allows for minor convictions to be wiped from someone’s record after a period of time with no offending.
Today, Marshae Jones is being charged with manslaughter for being pregnant and getting shot while engaging in an altercation with a person who had a gun. Tomorrow, it will be another black woman, maybe for having a drink while pregnant. And after that, another, for not obtaining adequate prenatal care,” said Yellowhammer’s Reyes. “We commit ourselves to making sure that Marshae is released from jail on bond, assisting with her legal representation, and working to ensure that she gets justice for the multiple attacks that she has endured.”
Proposals for Justice:
El Chapo – The “Drug Lord” has been found guilty of numerous charges and will likely serve the remainder of his life in a maximum security prison in the United States of America.
The Sacklers – The “Kings of Opiates” have never been prosecuted and it is unlikely they will ever be so. To the extent possible a legally recognized court should be duly empaneled to hear the cases of these degenerates and upon lawful conviction each and every one charged from men, women and children of mature age ought to be publicly punished for their crimes in the most extreme fashion.
All Roads Lead to Railroading
Needless to say, The Sacklers will never be rebuked for their actions. They are Billionaires and their millions of victims are poor or middle-class at best. Given the realities of the governmental system of the United States there is no chance whatsoever the laws will be changed to hold the guilty to account.
No more low-level, impoverished, ignorant suspects with few if any recourse can be railroaded into prison while the Sackler Filth walks free with impunity concerning their American Blood Libel.
This should be done in every condition in every case in every courtroom throughout the land until the Sacklers – each and every one – have been brought to trial for their far more pervasive and vastly greater detrimental crimes against the citizenry of the United States and residents of this Earth.
In other words, no one goes to jail until the worst of the worst go to jail – Herein Lies The Path To Justice.
A lawyer is supposed to be an officer of the court, and a defence counsel is supposed to argue the client’s case within the law to force the prosecution to prove guilt beyond reasonable doubt.
Yet there were a handful who crossed the line. They became gang members, advising on how to launder drug money, complicit in attempts to pervert the course of justice and prepared to intimidate witnesses. Some became romantically connected to the clients they represented.
Ten years after the behavior of over-leveraged and fraudulent banks created a global financial disaster that resulted in hundreds of billions of dollars in losses; a multi-trillion bailout using public money; and millions of people losing their homes to foreclosure, but saw not one high-level financial executive go to jail, a man in Florida has been sentenced to a 20-year prison term for stealing $600 worth of cigarettes from a local convenience store.
And when did we start assuming guilt on the basis of an anonymous and unsubstantiated complaint, while denying the alleged defendant any access to due process and natural justice?
This entire situation stinks like a dead cod left in the sun.
Or, as Shakespeare more eloquently put it:
‘Time shall unfold what plighted cunning hides …’

According to PeerJ Computer Science journal, an algorithm written by scientists from the University College London, University of Sheffield and the University of Pennsylvania allows an Artificial Intelligence algorithm to give a verdict with seventy-nine percent accuracy in human trials. This complex system is one of a kind, and has solely been developed to understand case …
Freelance correspondent Ben Bohane goes on patrol in Manila, where 200 drug dealers and users have been shot dead in two weeks as part of the Filipino leader’s war on drugs.
A video of an Aboriginal child’s early interaction with the justice system should never have been used to confect outrage with no regard for his welfare.
This is a story of desperation, a saga that stretches across half a lifetime and in which no one has actually done anything wrong yet but where a soul-destroying injustice is poised to happen unless one man does the right thing.
Days after his deportation from the United States, the Palestinian activist and professor Sami Al-Arian discusses the end of his ordeal as the target of one of the most controversial prosecutions of the post-9/11 era. Sami was accused of ties to a militant group, but a Florida jury failed to return a single guilty verdict on any of the 17 charges against him. After prosecutors refiled charges, Sami chose jail time and deportation rather than face a second trial. For much of the three years following his arrest in 2003, he was imprisoned in solitary confinement and reportedly abused by prison staff under conditions Amnesty International called “gratuitously punitive.” In a broadcast exclusive, Sami joins us from Turkey for his first broadcast interview since being deported. We are also joined by his daughter Laila Al-Arian, a Peabody Award-winning journalist based in Washington, D.C.
POPE Francis has delivered an off-the-cuff, mini-encyclical on the poor, labour injustices and the environment, saying he’s not preaching communism but the Gospel.
FRANCIS’ remarks to the World Meeting of Popular Movements, delivered on Tuesday in his native Spanish, ran for more than six pages, single-spaced. It was one of his longest speeches yet and a clear sign that the issues are particularly close to his heart.
