Digitizing American’s Sick History of Executions

It’s a great project idea; but it is also a heartbreaking and HIGHLY REVEALING project. Revealing racism towards not only adults, but children… It also, I hope, will bring attention to the problem we still have in America with this inhumane, cruel and unjust legal hate and racism.
I also wonder if they will the last (one of few) legal execution photos to be reveled? It’s an old photo, of a man who they electrocuted. It went very wrong and the photo shows this. After that photos of these executions no longer were allowed… Wonder why.

And my gods… this poor, beautiful child breaks my heart…. !!!!!

A Bit of Good News; Rikers Island to be Shut Down, FINALLY 

I am going to only post this, and not ruin the good news with depressing facts about America and prisons overall. That’ll be another post. 🙂

After years of abhorrent conditions and abuses, New York City will shut down the notoriously troubled Rikers Island jail.

New York City will close the Rikers Island jail facility,” Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on Friday. “It will take many years. It will take many tough decisions along the way. But it will happen.”

The details of what will come to replace Rikers Island are still unclear. As the New York Times reported, a commission previously recommended that the jail be broken up into smaller jails located in each of the city’s five boroughs.

De Blasio was previously skeptical
 of shutting it down, but it seems like public pressure to do something about the jail — and perhaps a looming reelection campaign this year — pushed him to change his mind.

Rikers Island is notoriously awful

Rikers Island has earned a national reputation for its terrible conditions, with horror stories regularly coming out.

One such story was that of Kalief Browder, who killed himself in 2015, after his release. He spent three years in the facility even though he was never convicted of the robbery he was wrongly accused of at the age of 16. He claimed he spent more than 400 days in solitary confinement, and he attempted suicide at least six times while at the jail. “I didn’t get to go to prom, graduation, nothing,” Browder told New York City’s ABC 7. “I’m never going to get those years back. Never.”

A New York Times article headlined “Rikers: Where Mental Illness Meets Brutality in Jail” detailed several other examples of abuse at the jail. In one case, officers reacted to an inmate’s suicide attempt by beating him:

After being arrested on a misdemeanor charge following a family dispute last year, Jose Bautista was unable to post $250 bail and ended up in a jail cell on Rikers Island.

A few days later, he tore his underwear, looped it around his neck and tried to hang himself from the cell’s highest bar. Four correction officers rushed in and cut him down. But instead of notifying medical personnel, they handcuffed Mr. Bautista, forced him to lie face down on the cell floor and began punching him with such force, according to New York City investigators, that he suffered a perforated bowel and needed emergency surgery. “

De Blasio and other city officials had worked to try to fix the jail facility. But the pace of change was slow, and the jail could never shake its reputation as a place of historical brutality. Now Rikers Island is closing down, affecting the roughly 9,000 inmates held there on a daily basis.

Prison Guards Unaccountable in Death of Darren Rainey & America’s Racist History & Cover-Ups….

This is a repost with my 2 cents about the evil I report and will continue to report on… Let me explain. The below case, for example, is not happy. It isn’t surprising, sadly. But I stand firmly with Malcolm X and will NOT ever turn away from the atrocities white racists do and get away with, still, daily. I share these things because I feel it is my responsibility to share. Because no one’s suffering should be ignored; BECAUSE WE SHOULD NOT GET INTO A MIND STATE OF ACCEPTING THIS SORT OF TREATMENT SO MUCH THAT IT BECOMES A TOPIC NO ONE DISCUSSES OR CARES ABOUT ANYMORE- A TOPIC OR SOCIAL ISSUE PEOPLE FEEL IS HOPELESS THUS IT GETS IGNORED. WE MUST NEVER GET TO THAT PLACE!5c3784d0a0e4e44a463c9aa51af4f684

Honor him and I hope somehow, soon, the Black and Hispanic and awake whites and anyone else, will all unite and act in a way that gets positive change. But first gang violence needs to cease… Please put down the gun; or at least realize who your true enemy is. These same people who can do these sort of sick things, as seen below, be it another situation like his, or more by cops; the racist government and prison industry. And then we can’t forget the every day racist whites. Nor can we forget what has gone on and still goes on. Point? The people doing all that; before and after you were born, are the same people who on FBI orders brought guns and drugs to the community with the orders “divide and conquer”.

They are the threat to peace and humanity and equality. I wish I had some form of action or inspiring words to say regarding the dismissal of charges in yet another stomach churning hate crime against a Black man. I’ve spent so much time trying to figure out what to do; and of course I’m here to fight and speak against racism… But I want to start teaching TRUE history.

Quickly let me go over my new plans and the current video “lessons” or “series” I’m starting as it is the ground which the murders and violence sprouts from….

Yes slavery will be mentioned; but so well bravery and strength. Also, in regards to the time in history I’ll be “teaching” or sharing knowledge about, Black people are forgotten and if not forgotten, some historians have the nerve to say that white SERVANTS and Black SLAVES were treated the same, no racism involved in the START of slavery in the states. Oh, and the founding fathers and documents had nothing to do with maintaining slavery; why, they spoke against slavery!… *shakes head*…

In the upcoming videos I’ll expose the whites lies, and remove the smoke and mirror show they hide behind. It’s time to give credit to those who built this country; not just in regards to the buildings of the District of Columbia and other states, but also other workings that shape America, as we will see.

While the rich Europeans sat on their asses and “BOUGHT” HUMAN BEINGS to then work them to the verge of death (don’t give me that ‘some masters were actually nice to them’ BS. You cannot be moral and OWN a human unless it was some facade to break the enslaved free. These “masters” had no such intention.

Just like with Ancient Egypt, history is written by those who did minimal work at most, if that; by the two faced hypocrites who cared not for the inhumanity of slavery but instead the money- all while trying to play the victim of owning slaves. …. Yes you read that right; that will be explained in the video posted either tonight or in the morning.

Whites didn’t create this country. They did create the hate and oppressive racist laws and spread lies on a legal level trying to further legitimize their cruel, sick, sadistic actions. A lot of those laws are still in act to this day impacting disproportionately the non-white communities, especially the Black community. All that has been changed is amendments made which removed any reference to Black men and women, keeping control of “white supremacy” -that’s a quote- and so forth. All these things that built America from the white side, the evil side, still are infecting and poisoning this country to this day.

And how can anyone of us expect anything less? Police and prisons and the war on drugs and SO MANY MORE LAWS we all know about and know to be unjust were created early in “America’s early days”. You cannot expect anything rooted in evil to produce honesty and kindness; equality and remorse.

So I think it’s time we all set the record straight on these topics and so many more. They have hurt, slaughtered and so much more has been stolen from the people… But they then continue on down to even lower grounds, the lowest, and claim this country never engaged in slavery as bad as “some people make it”. Regarding the main topic of my first video “lessons” in history, they also then go on to take credit for all the work and accomplishments they not once worked at. Regarding documents and papers they had to lift a finger for knowledge of reading and writing is dangerous….

But now you and I read and write. Don’t waste it. Exploit it. Share knowledge, both the heartbreaking as well as the removal of FAKE history. Replace it with TRUE history… And share… Teach the children these truths; teach ourselves these truths….and refuse to believe or tolerate their thieving LIES!

My current plans and topics I’m going to start my lessons on in the video series I spoke of, all deals with racism and the evil history of it.I am working on a video about a Black child whom was slaughtered tragically…but he received no justice, just as the majority of cases- unless the victims white and the killers Black- show us. White privilege and double standards.

Finally, if any of you are the sort to say ” I can’t handle looking or hearing…____” the sick things that happened. I don’t enjoy it but I look; and so should everyone! I refuse to look away; I refuse to stay quiet; and I refuse to play the white supremacist little game when it comes to HISTORY – from Ancient Africa to modern Africa and other places- as well as the US and all the back breaking, soul destroying evils racists did; such as forced labor in the building of the entire District of Columbia and it doesn’t stop there. (Please make sure you join my YouTube channel; I’m going to make sure I set history straight as I can, as best I can, and I hope I make a difference even if just to ONE soul.)

This tragic and intentional murder –and especially the fact it is something they found not worthy of punishment!- is a direct link to those founding lies and “men” who were behaving behind closed doors not too differently as we’ll see. The roots flower the same hateful and evil ways for until we uproot and start over, these sort will continue to get away with being indescribably cruel and evil.

Unless someone else knows another way to change things… I’m all ears; I long for the better days and to see equality!!!….. But as of right now, the America of the “Founding fathers” continues on in the legacy of brutality, prejudices, violence and racism. Otherwise, there would be a deep outrage by the world and the killers would be punished. Instead….

Four prison guards who were allegedly involved in the death of Darren Rainey—a schizophrenic inmate at the Dade Correctional Institution who died in 2012 after being thrown into a scalding hot shower and left there for two hours as punishment—will not be charged. According to the Miami New Times, on Friday Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine…

Government Chemist Admits to Tampering Evidence; But There’s More… 

Government chemist admits to changing the results of tests which would send over 20,000 innocent Black people to prison. Now, imagine all of the people who aren’t admitting to the sickness? Not that this “woman” did it out of remorse.

It reminds me of a book I’ve just recently read on the history of “medical treatment” and the Black community and am appalled as everyone with a soul would be if it were included in any classes at schools across America; which of course it is not. People may get frustrated at my focusing on all this negativity and to you I say; tough. 

I do it hoping to wake people up, not because I enjoy the sickness of racism. I haven’t been able to do it nearly as much as I should or have in the past but I’m working on making a change there. 

In fact; I’m going to post this and go work on a plan to share the sickness of history in America that no one “remembers” – video or written I’m not sure but I do know it is information EVERYONE should know. More on that soon.

The below is just a small snippet of the horrors faced by Black Americans, now or 70 years ago. If you think this is a solo case you’re in for a shock. 

Tony Soto Black Man & Activist Held on $900,000 for NO REASON! Please SHARE!

While I was preparing to re-post information on Tony Soto, I came across one of the last videos he posted on YouTube and oddly, it’s directed towards anyone who is struggling. He now -for NO REASON– sits behind bars on a $900,000 bond…  (For more videos by Tony Soto not included on his YouTube account or for more information, please see below.) I had to repost it and no matter if you aren’t religious, are like me and not religious but spiritual, or simply do not believe in anything; his good heart and character for others shines like he always has as a friend and activist…

And from my older posts… Or you can read it all on one page by clicking here.


“… We are asking for your help and support in this crowdfund to help him with his bond and to retain competent counsel.  Funded Justice specializes in Crowdfunding for legal matters.  Please donate and share this Crowdfunding. My son has stood on the front lines and helped many people, traveling all over the region assisting in other marches, protests and helping families organize and assert their First Amendment rights to redress their grievenaces and to protest outrageous and unjust actions by law enforcement.

His first son was born in his first son was born in his absence this past Sat June 25, 2016.  He has yet to see or hold his newborn and I am suffering with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.  For the past two years my son has dilgently marched for civil rights and has tried to make sure people know their rights when pulled over in a vehicle. He has been outspoken and vocal in regards to the blatant police brutality and police corruption sweeping this nation.  Now he is being falsely held in a Phila prison.  If this had happened to any one of you, Tony would have already been organizing on your behalf immediately.  We thank you for your support. God Bless.”- Tony Soto’s mother

The sites I’m linking have the videos of the police stalking, harassment and mistreatment are posted in the above link which I posted a couple of days ago. So below are the links I’ve previously made when he was free, in order. Videos of importance are on all, one of them I believe I made a video but there is a link to his facebook video on there….

Each video shows not only the Philly police disrespecting him, but obviously targeting him, especially if you check out more of his videos (again that is linked in one of the posts too, I believe it’s the first). His  previous videos of harassment and fear tactics being used, each link is below.. thank you and please, please help this good man, his mom, those whom care for him and the community needs him, too…

Please, help. – Tony Soto’s Mother  (click here to donate)

Day of Rage for Mumia~9/7 — Moorbey’z Blog

No man in prison -especially in prison and not guilty of any crime other than wanting freedom and equality- should be allowed to be subjected to this type of torture. However, it shouldn’t be surprising that AmeriKKKa has been abusing and testing medical ‘theories’ on those in the Black community for hundreds of years. It’s past time it stopped; with the power and knowledge every one of you reading has, it’s time we use our knowledge and put this kind of shit to rest. Mumia Abu-Jamal is a good man who still speaks out with truth and knowledge; he is an innocent man and because he is relentless in the fight for truth the racist government is trying to silence him. This and all other acts of blatant racism in AmeriKKKa need to be taken to a global scale; Amerikkka needs to be held accountable for their cruelties and the only way we will ever see that day is when the racist system is taken before international courts. JUST AS MALCOLM X SAID!

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Mumia Abu-Jamal has maintained his innocence for 35 years but the state is still trying to kill him, this time by refusing to treat him for Hepatitis C. Show your outrage in the streets on Wednesday, September 7: 11AM – Press conference outside the Philadelphia Health Center at S. Broad & Lombard – because hep c is […]
