Newark, NJ, ICE LockUp’s Exposed: Once Again! ANOTHER CRITICAL WATCHDOG REPORT: ROTTEN FOOD, DECAYING MATTRESSES

Why in hell do we have people in any positions of power who are abusing, in any shape or form, fellow humans, sexually harassing them, making them sleep in decaying beds…and then sarcastically playing it off as if it isn’t an issue… HOW DO THEY SLEEP AT NIGHT!?

And how do those of you who turn the other way live with your selfish souls?

This is more than I humane… and if you are one of these jerks who can’t even stand against what’s wrong but complain about those who DO speak out; it is you that is the fool and should be ashamed. I sure as hell am not and by being silent you only aid cruelty.

What is more, someone came talking to someone near me about a woman complaining about her food quality. He played some YouTube video they’d made into a joke of her, I didn’t fully understand what in hell they were on about…

Now I do. If I’d been more up to date then I’d have torn into their sick souls for truth and knowledge I will always inflict; I don’t care when or who you are… please share!

A Newark, New Jersey immigrant detention center has been feeding detainees moldy, spoiled and foul-smelling food—an abuse that’s led detainees to file scores of grievances and to report symptoms of food poisoning, according to a report released Friday by the Department of Homeland Security’s Inspector General.

The center, which can house more than 900 men, is run by the Essex County Department of Corrections, under an agreement with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE. DHS inspectors conducted a surprise visit last July and found multiple health-and-safety violations of detainee rights and ICE standards. The inspector general’s report noted that the Essex County Correctional Facility also failed to disclose to ICE, as required, incidents involving fights among detainees and hospitalization of detainees for mental illness.

A detainee also found a loaded gun belonging to a guard in a bathroom, the inspector general’s report said.  Center staff admitted to inspectors that they told the detainee who found the gun “not to discuss the matter with anyone,” according to inspectors.

In the report, inspectors noted that detainees filed about 200 grievances about food quality during the first six months of 2018.

“For dinner, we were served meatballs that smelled like fecal matter,” one detainee wrote.

“The food that we received has been complete garbage,” another wrote. He also wrote: “I have a stomach infection because of it and the nurse herself told me it was caused by the food.”

Inspectors observed “expired and moldy bread” in a refrigerator, despite requirements that staff toss it out.  “The food handling in general was so substandard that ICE and facility leadership had the kitchen manager replaced during our inspection,” inspectors reported.

ICE asserted that after seeing a draft of the report its officials immediately initiated a follow-up review process” at the Essex facility. ICE and Essex detention officials could not be reached for comment.

ButWNYC radio in New York reported that ICE, in a statement,

said that conditions inside Essex had improved and that ICE was “committed to continually enhancing” detention operations to promote “a safe and secure environment.”

The inspector general additionally detailed how inspectors last July found showers at Essex covered with mold. Staff had placed trash cans under holes in ceilings to collect rain leaking in; two leaks were in detainee rooms right over their beds.

When inspectors asked guards about decaying mattresses they observed, the report says,

guards said they “wait for detainees to complain” before staff put in a request that mattresses be replaced.  😡😡

The Newark immigration detention center isn’t the first facility where DHS inspectors have found neglect and substandard conditions.

In October, a DHS inspector general report found violations at the Adelanto detention center in California that included inappropriate handcuffing and shackling of detainees and medical neglect, as theCenter for Public Integrity reported.

A dentist employed at Adelanto, which is operated by the private GEO Group, Inc., told inspectors that detainees could use strings from their socks to floss their teeth if dental floss was not available to them.

Inspectors also found evidence that a disabled detainee in a wheelchair was placed into “segregation,” or isolation, for nine days, during which time he was unable to sleep in a bed or brush his teeth.

In January, another DHS inspector general reportaccused ICE of issuing only two penalties against contractors holding immigrant detainees despite finding 14,000 violations of detainee rights and ICE standards. The violations were found at 106 contract detention centers from 2015 to 2018. Violations included contractors’ failure to report alleged sexual assaults to ICE. Last September, the Center reported on private-prison companies’ history, and allegations of abuses that include medical neglect.

17 yr old Starts Clothing Line to Inspire Youth to Follow Their Dreams

This is what is needed…. bless this young man; he is so inspiring … Don’t let those who do nothing or only spew negativity at you, or don’t bother to let you speak..don’t let them stop you… prove them all wrong; and you can…

Nationwide —17-year-old Zyreke “Zmoney” Williams also known as Mr.Heartle$$ has created a new clothing line to influence the youth to pursue their dreams. Heartle$$ Apparel does just that with their streetwear and edgy clothing line. Williams not only makes clothes for the youth but to follow his own destiny that he found after going through a tragic event.

“After I tragically lost my uncle on December 21, 2015, I completely lost myself. I looked him in his eyes as he died and it haunted me every day since. I had so much hatred on the inside I just knew I had to find a productive way to let it out. Then one day I just made a hoodie just to symbolize how I felt, wearing that hoodie made me feel complete when I walked in school and people actually liked it. Then at that moment, I knew I was destined to make clothes” Williams explained.

He went on to say, his uncle was his best friend and the only person he could express himself to.

Williams plans for his clothing line to bring people together and influence them to pursue their own dreams. This message is vital in today’s society where following your dreams can be difficult when facing criticism from family, friends or social media. Mr.Heartle$$ provides a perfect example what can happen when one follows their dreams.

Heartle$$ Apparel has recently released a new baby blue hoodie that often “reminds everyone of a snowy winter” Williams said. The 17-year-old is planning on growing his brand even more in the new year, “In the next year I see my brandbeing not only the most popular brand but the most respected.”

More Money for *Them*; More Injustice For Mentally Ill; Please Read…

IMPORTANT PLEASE READ AND SHARE

Thoughts and Writings on Social Issues

“Last year, the work of grassroots organizations and health providers moved the American Public Health Association to recognize that police violence is a public health issue that undermines our communities’ ability to develop non-law enforcement responses to crisis and harm.-” See Below Post

That quote from the petition sums up what I am about to describe; and if anyone cannot handle it or chooses to look the other way, remember, you are only aiding the cruel, injustices going on…

Please share, please care enough to add your name… This is an ongoing battle and crisis, they now are openly wanting to target the mentally ill; please give a moment to hear what this has meant and could mean to any one suffering from extreme mental illnesses in America. After my words is the petition and a link to the original site. But before you do that, I ask you please…

“This is How the World SHOULD Be”- Positive Story

Tupac said it beautifully and perfectly; and I know he didn’t just speak it but lived it; as all of us should…

I saw this bit of inspiring news and had to reshare, because this is a sign of hope; this is a sign that the unification of the community can and I believe will finally be a reality in the future, and once again… I am a bit frustrated for I’m without the internet for a few more days thus I can’t post videos; but the link to the original article below has a video of it all.

And please… while hoping more young men follow their lead, also let us also keep in mind that with this beautiful story of men behaving as real men should, there are surely far more than we know who also behave as real men and just don’t make the news…

Community is so vital; and these men have reminded me that it’s not all an uphill battle; there IS GOOD going on… and that is indeed a reason to celebrate, if you ask me.

Article & original link with video follows.

Joc Koe Stoe, Marty and Freddy G. were picking up some snacks at a local gas station in Bronson, Florida, when they spotted an elderly couple in distress.

 100 year old David Griest and his 89 year old wife Rose had just come from a medical appointment and they stopped to use the bathroom…and David couldn’t get his ailing wife back into their van.

“Thank you so much fellas. I’m 100 years old.”

 The video was taken by Deputy Kenesha Carnegie of the Levy County Sheriff’s Dept.

 “I look over and three friends were assisting the couple. It was a beautiful thing to see,” said Kenesha.

 “I know these men from the neighborhood, and I wanted them to have that moment to show who they really are.” 

 Said Marty,”  

 I kept thinking, ‘She could have been my grandmother.’

 100 years old is a beautiful life.”

 This comes as no surprise to this community.

 It is what we are used to and come to expect.

 This act of compassion happens a hundred times a day.

 Every day.

 In every neighborhood and community in the country.

 For every act of depravity….there are a hundred fold simple acts of kindness.

 Which is why you should have no fear.

 We will get through this darkness….

 …together.

 And back into the light….

 ….together.

Black History Month-Brief History & My Stance

“If a race has no history, it has no worthwhile tradition, it becomes a negligible factor in the thought of the world, and it stands in danger of being exterminated. ”

This post was a lot more in-depth than this, but after having it somehow 50% deleted, I figured I would repost the overall main point, and rant on other related issues on another post.

There are a few reasons I truly dislike Black History month. Until recently I had no idea how it was even founded, I’m ashamed to say.

Black men and women more than earned their place in American history books, both before 1776 and definitely after.

Black History happened in crucial ways, daily, and still they received no pay, no acknowledgement, no kindness or humane treatment. Fast forwarding to 2019 where we still are impacted by the actions of these men and women; one example being the White House and all of the surrounding district was built off of the backs -and brains- of Black men. (Info on this to be in an upcoming post)

Despite the impact and astonishing sacrifice, cruelties and inhumanity these people endured; despite what they did to build the structure desired by whites “in government”- there still has been not only no pay, but also no acknowledgement in public schools or by many others I can think of whom “teach history.”

(And yes, money payment is due. White people today; ok so you were not one of the enslavers… you are, however, reaping the benefits of an oppressive system merciful and preferring of whites; OPENLY, heartlessly. While, at the same time, trying to ensure your so called “place as victim” or playing the “denial card” … whatever way a white person goes if it is not in truth you are openly, knowingly allowing lies to be told, truth and history to be surprised and letting a community continue to struggle and suffer due to racism which is indeed very much, too much, alive in America. But I digress.)

And I haven’t even began on the ancient histories not often spoke of except in falsehood.

Such as, the history of truth which when we find in the amazing, breath taking ancient civilizations of Kemet/Egypt / African history. These people are the reason for everything we take for granted today from the 365 calendar to math and medicine and more. (More posts are to come soon on many, many things in respect to this as well!)

On to the point of this post, even though my last writing was far more informative I feel, I best get back on topic.

Though Black History month is not something I support, as noted I support an all year, truthful history, it began of noble means and the history is honorable.

I am ashamed to admit this is a piece of history I only recently learned.

The origins of what was a brave and wonderful proposal, especially in 1926, was created by Mr. Carter G. Woodson, along side the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History.

It was, at that time known as “Negro History Week” and was to be honored every year during the second week of February.

These weeks were not selected at random, instead planned as to include the birthdays of Frederick Douglass in the 14th as well as Abraham Lincoln on the 12th.

It was, of course, not met with much more than a rather lethargic response but it didn’t leave Carter disheartened; quiet the opposite.

It took relentless work and perseverance but it finally began to catch on, and finally, the ambition, and the hopes to share and honor Black History seemed to have succeeded.

It wasn’t until 1976 that American presidents began giving recognition to the cause, but after they acknowledged it as an issue of importance (no matter what the reason they really did it for) it became Black History month.

And so it was. Call me negative if desired but I am a realist; Black History month should not only be a year long study, additionally it should not be limited, as it is now, to slavery, segregation, the civil war, the Civil Rights Movement, riots, sit ins, and/or Dr. King.

Black History does not begin with slavery. With that in mind I hope you will go and do some real research on the truths being hidden from you…. or revisit this page at random to learn more truths they try so hard to hide, or even deny. Despite the proof & evidence to be shared…
