Torture of U.S. Political Prisoners

I read this article today. It is a prime example of how we torture people in our prisons or give them unjust sentences. Some of these people are guilty and some aren’t, but there is such determination to destroy their lives, not based on whether the sentence is just, but because they weren’tliked. 2,098 more words

...... There is a very high percentage of inmates who are mentally Ill.The story of this man's sonwho got 45 years with no possibility of parole because he exhibited the signs of his illness -Asperger's Syndrome - and committed no crime, is beyond acceptable. The judge wouldn't allow testimony to be given that explained what this illness is. His life now is ruined. This happens so often. Most of the inmates in solitary confinement have a mental illness. There are so many changes needed in our criminal injustice system. Criminalization of mental illness should be a crime itself.

Solitary confinement in the UK in the words of prisoners and staff

Descriptions of the system from the inside 

We did a post a couple of weeks ago about the solitary confinement of prisoners in Britain. We wrote about the damage to both their physical and mental health caused by long periods in segregation units and Close Supervision Centres (CSC). 1,452 more words

[caption id="attachment_72131" align="aligncenter" width="680"]race pop in prison Populations Percentage in England and Wales[/caption] I am reblogging an article I read at Prison Watch UK . Reading this makes me want to cry.  Reading about what happens to people who are locked up in inhumane conditions where they feel the only way out is to commit suicide?  Prisoner mental health issues is at a dangerous level. I know how bad it is Jamie and I know he won't be released from it - again - for at least a year.  I knew it was bad in the UK, too, but I hadn't read many articles about it. I completed changed the post I was going to write in order to put this out.  But if there is any doubt whether our justice system is racist, here are the numbers. This is England and Wales crime statistics. This is for the years 2009/10. Yes, it is a few years old, but these numbers and our numbers are evidence of what has happened since the prison industrial complex decided to use the world's minorities as a means to increase their own greed and it needs to be stopped. These stats are all for England and Wales. Crime age 10 and older - white 88.6% black 2.7% Stops and searches under Police and Criminal Evidence Act - white 67.2% black 14.6% Arrests 2009/10 - white 79.6% black. 8% Prison population ( including foreign nationals) white 72% black 13.7% race graph in prison Sadly our prison industrial complex has spread to other countries as we have taught them how they, too, can make a fortune from their prisons. In the last 20 years their prison population has doubled and they have the same problems we have with the cost, elderly inmates and medical care. The US has 5% of the world's population, yet 25% of the world's prisoners with 6x more blacks locked up than whites. As I researched, I'm reading that England is also very racist. Hmmm I wasn't aware of how bad it is. Please go to the original article. There is a lot of good information there.  Share this http://facebook.com/jamielifeinprison . . .Blog posts and news about injustice in the world
