PRISONERS UNITED IN SANTA CLARA COUNTY JAILS WIN 5 CORE DEMANDS & SACRIFICE 3 DAYS OF CUSTODY MEALS FOR THE HUNGRY

This is vile and this sheriff is the true criminal…I am honestly at a loss for words, all the information is below and on the original posts page, which I strongly encourage you to read and share….
This is vital and should be on international news… But if you watch “Fox News” or “CNN” chances are you won’t see this… They are for-profit media, controlled by greed, money and the government… Please check the below link for the full information…and please, share….

Silicon Valley De-Bug thanks Prisoners United on every floor in the Main Jail and housing units M-5 and M-8 in Elmwood D.O.C. for courageously sacrificing all their custody meals to be donated to the homeless and hungry at Emmanuel House Salvation Army.

We also appreciate all efforts made between jail administrators, community organizations and the jail population to come to an agreement to meet the 5 core demands to end meaningless classification reviews, indefinite solitary confinement, group punishment, cruel and unusual punishment during out of cell time, and rigid visitation policies.

FACTS THAT REFUTE SHERIFF SMITH’S COMMENT:

  • Over 70% of the Santa Clara County jail population is pretrial – meaning they have not been convicted of a crime.
  • Being in jail does not automatically mean someone is a gang member, according to the JFA Institute Jail Classification System Evaluation audit prepared by James Austin in 2016, there is only 21 verified prison gang members in Santa Clara County.
  • Prisoners United of Silicon Valley is the collective voice of the entire Santa Clara County jail population including all classification/security levels, color tops, racial groups (Black, White, Asian, Latino, Pacific Islander etc.) and creeds and is not lead by one man alone.
  • Salvation Army is a tremendous community resource for those in need, including programs for those who have been convicted of a crime.
 ###

FURTHER DETAILS/CLARIFICATIONS:

Santa Clara County jail administrators came to an agreement to meet the 5 core demands to end meaningless classification reviews, indefinite solitary confinement, group punishment, cruel and unusual punishment during out of cell time, and rigid visitation policies. However, the administration stated it will take 3 weeks for the new classification system to kick in.

According to the agreement, the classification system will have face-to-face hearings, opportunity for prisoners to call witnesses to speak in their defense, the use of things such as education and rehabilitation certificates to have influence on their hearings, and the opportunity to contest anything.

The administration also agreed to suspend all in-custody inputs until the new system is in place. i

Prisoners in the jails should also be able to see what is in their file.

Captains Grumbos and Taylor finalized agreements with some of the prisoners inside.

The challenge of only having 35 classification officers is still a question. 

10/26/17 MEDIA UPDATE

Due to the understanding that there was an agreement made to avoid a hunger strike, Prisoner United in the 6C sureno unit, who were just recently rehoused to unsanitary cells in 6A in the Main Jail, ordered from commissary this past Sunday/Monday.

Due to Sheriff Smith’s comment, Prisoners United reverted their efforts to refusing all custody meals to see to it that their food is in fact donated to the homeless and hungry at Salvation Army who serve gang impacted, those recovering from drug and alcohol recovery and formally incarcerated.

Just last night when Prisoners United in 6A (formally 6C) received their commissary orders, prisoners protested and courageously left food items from their order, with some of their orders as large as $100, outside their cells to ensure that their commissary food is donated to the homeless and hungry at Emmanuel House Salvation Army, and prevent food waste.

Prisoners United in sureno units 6A Main Jail and M4B in Elmwood will continue to go on strike until they can sit down with jail administrators to guarantee inclusion that their Protective Custody status will be removed from their classification file in the new classification system set to be active in the next following weeks.

i “…another form of conduct that is reported by staff on inmates [are] called the Custody Input Reports or CIRs. These are used to record both positive and negative conduct behavior. Unfortunately, the CIRs are not part of the Custody Bureau’s database and cannot be analyzed for the entire jail population. However, as shown later in the report, these data were manually collected for the pilot test on the inmates who had been in custody for at least 60 days.” from Aug 2016 Santa Clara County Office of the Sheriff Custody Bureau Jail Classification System Evaluation

Custody Inputs are basically an additional punitive tool that that does not fall under a rule violation/infraction or charge. The prisoner is given no notification, so the prisoner never knows what Custody Inputs are being put in their file. The administration agreed to give notice of every Custody Input in 3 weeks and to currently suspend all custody inputs so that it will not hold someone back from down-classing. Custody Inputs can also be used in the courts and follows you in prison. There should be no custody input. If its not an infraction or charge, then it should not be used as a tool of punitive action.

White Cop Brutalizes Black Male 2 Weeks After Being Cleared of Murdering Another Black Male- SPREAD THIS!

After being cleared in the killing of another Black man, this disgusting filth cop Zachary Rosen has been caught on video BRUTALIZING only TWO WEEKS after he was cleared in the aforementioned Black man’s SLAUGHTER.  That 23 year old young Black man’s name was Henry Green. Oh, by the way, they were not wearing uniform nor did they identify themselves as cops.

No matter what the young man did or was doing, for all he knew these were two racist assholes trying to kill him. And they were just that! But, the media wants you to believe Henry Green was just another thug. No matter if he had a gun or not; how many of you whites have a gun that you carry on you? How many of you whites would have pulled that gun if two unidentified white -let alone BLACK- men approached you not telling you who they were, and not in uniform?

Back to the current case against this racist cop.

In this video, we see this disgusting empty shell kicking a handcuffed, Black man by the name of DeMarco Anderson, who was NOT resisting when Rosen delivered the atrocious, appalling, racist and hate inspired blow to his head with his foot.Henry Green-BlackMen- Cops Murder DeMarco Anderson, Columbus Ohio, Tamir Rice

The police department in Columbus, Ohio say that Rosen’s off patrol as it is being investigated. Paid leave? I wonder. And yes, that is one cop restraining him, and the racist, psycho!

And this is the thing that adds salt to the wound to me is that while being restrained by one cop, DeMarco does the simple thing of asking a question, even giving this cop undue respect when he asked,,

“Why are you being aggressive, sir?” ….

And now enter Zachary Rosen. He bolts into camera view, and gives DeMarco a kick so hard DeMarco’s head that it bounces off of the curb!

And where is the media? If it does get attention, they are going to label him as a thug who was doing this or that and provoked it; which is BULL SHYT! This kind of behavior is NOT “justifiable” for there is NO REASON to ABUSE someone especially when RESTRAINED!

There have been many reports -including by the FBI- stating the KKK are invading police departments across the nation and have been for some time. I say the police ARE the KKK. This developing horror story that is all too damn typical proves one thing for sure: racism is alive in the police department, and it’s time we do more than MARCH AND ASK! ESPECIALLY UNDER THE CURRENT ADMINISTRATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This has been going on for hundreds of years! In this life alone I have been working on or documenting these cases or similar well over a decade! WHY ARE WE NOT HITTING THEM ECONOMICALLY??? WHY WHY WHY ARE WE NOT MORE UNIFIED???? CAN’T  WE PUT BLACK AND BROWN AND WHITE EVEN ASIDE FOR THE GREATER GOOD??? CAN’T GANGS CALL EVEN A TEMPORARY TRUCE TO UNITE AGAINST THIS GREATER EVIL!?

Another Person Joins Lawsuit Against Racism They Faced Working at Fox News

Not surprising I’m sad to say. Fox News is not a news channel; it is an entertainment channel, it competes for ratings against other “news” channels like CNN, and CNN is but a lFox News Liesittle better for at least they don’t go to the extremities of Fox shows like Bill O’Riely (I don’t care if I spell that right or not so…) or fire their reporters and THEN take them to court for not wanting to lie about the topic of their assignment. People who watch Fox News are terrifying, I hope people will start doing independent research, or at the very least, watch/read facts and then make their own opinion, not take the opinion of these “reporters” and claim them as factual and their own.

Anyone aware and awake has known for along time that Fox is not only an extremely racist, sexist, biased channel. This can be seen in how they portray Black people in particular; even victims…even children. Though most for profit media outlets do the same, Fox News takes it an extra step in how they speak of the Black and Hispanic community, on the struggle for equal rights, immigration of “illegal” immigrants… Oh, and not to mention how they speak of Islam and Muslims (which is anyone who “looks” like they are a Muslim; so, everyone in the middle east is automatically a terrorist.

The government controls the media; it was made public in 1977. At that time they declared they would stop. HA! If you believe that,… I’m speechless towards you.

Another victim of racism has joined in on a lawsuit two others had already began. This is not an isolated issue; this is how the corporation in general views anyone who isn’t a white man. If this is dismissed or if they don’t get some form of compensation or whatever they seek for this, I hope there is an uprising in America regarding rights of non-whites being ignored, in cases of all sorts….

NEW YORK (AP) — A third Fox News Channel employee has joined two colleagues in their lawsuit that says they were subjected to racial discrimination by a since-fired executive. Monica Douglas said former controller Judith Slater, who was fired on Feb. 28, frequently expressed an unwillingness to be near black people. Douglas is black, as…

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS: Legal Resource for “Illegal” Immigrants & Facts on “Illegal” Immigration

As we watch America too quickly descending backwards in both progress and 5c3784d0a0e4e44a463c9aa51af4f684morality under the tyranny of Trump/Pence, we must never forget the turmoil of those being thrown out of America. Too many Hispanic people live in fear night and day of being harassed, arrested or deported, and too many people -based on those I personally know- are aware of the legal rights they have,  “illegal” or not. Thus, I am posting a link for all people facing threat of arrest, detainment or deportation under the new, sickening tyrant rule of Trump/Pence.

The following link(s), which directs you to a section of the National Immigration Law Center, is a PDF file giving the rights each individual holds when it comes to questioning, detainment or deportation. It also refers people to a link where you can ensure loved ones know your location, stating:

  • Make sure your loved ones know how to find you if you are detained by ICE. They can use ICE’s online detainee locator (https://locator.ice.gov/odls/homePage.do) to find an adult who is in immigration custody. Or they can call the local ICE office (https://www.ice.gov/contact/ero). Make sure they have your alien registration number written down, if you have one.

Additionally, because one of these rights is the right to not speak, there is a card to print out and carry with you in the event an officer attempts to question or arrest you. Some of which has been copied and pasted below:

Hand this card to the officer, and remain silent.

The card explains that you are exercising your right to refuse to answer any questions until you have talked with a lawyer.

Please be informed that I am choosing to exercise my right to remain silent and my right to refuse to answer your questions. If I am detained, I request to contact an attorney immediately. I am also exercising my right to refuse to sign anything until I consult with my attorney. Thank you.

While this may not be enough or even offer much for anyone living in fear, I hope if you’ve found this it will offer at least a tiny bit of comfort. Click here for the link.

Now for a word to those who think they they are justified in supporting Trump’s racist, inhumane attack on ‘illegal’ immigrants (are none of you aware that if you are of European descent you, too, are an immigrant- this country was invaded by immigrants). Let’s go over a summary of you cruel beliefs and lies, as well as what the truth to those lies regarding “illegal” immigrants really are.no immigration ban.png

If you believe in the deportation and illegal immigration that is going on, you support the following facts as well. To do so and not be bothered is not only heartless but also shows your privilege -which most of you deny-, your false feelings of superiority, your ignorance (or most likely your stupidity), and your inhumane depravity.

Supporting immigration bans and deportations means you are supporting the following… From words to actions…all of it is a disgrace to humanity.

First, starting with labels… To define human beings as legal or illegal is sick enough in my opinion, but to then support and also be okay with their detainment and deportation despite what it means to their safety or their very lives?  

Oh and let’s not forget the fact that you also are supporting ripping people from their mothers, fathers, grandparents, wives, husbands, their children. And the impact on these people, including the innocent children, never strikes your alleged pro-life beliefs of being savage or gods forbid, wrong.

People are suffering in numbers virtually uncountable; in ways most people cannot even conceive. The fear they face even just sending their children to school or going to work no one can understand unless they are living it which you obviously are not being a supporter.

Worse yet, the very arrest and detainment process in itself is not even done to the standard being considered creditable, much less considerate or humane. Trump officials have been caught in the illegal act of “bullying” police departments into doing work ICE “legally” cannot do, such as entering a person’s residence without a warrant. Some police departments surprisingly have brought these attempts to national attention and declined taking part in their actions publicly, but not all have been so kind.

We can see more cruelty in the arrest and detainment process by looking at just one story of a woman in Texas. This proves no place is safe, not even medical care is taken into consideration, nor does safety come even after a person has been admitted to a hospital. They made this last month when ICE invaded the hospital room of a woman with a brain tumor, tying her ankles and wrists before dragging her to a ‘detention center’, cutting off her ability to contact the outside world -this included doctors and family.

All of this from self righteous “people” who support this for one of the following (emphasized by Trump’s lies)…

…immigrants from China and Vietnam and India more broadly, Trump in April of this year said our “jobs are being stolen … like candy from a baby.” In August 2015, Rasmussen—a conservative-leaning polling groupfound that 51% of respondents believe “illegal immigrants are taking jobs away from U.S. citizens.”

Research has found the reality of “illegal immigrants”“illegal immigrants” in America to be the exact opposite of Trump’s claims. This is but a small portion of many studies you can easily locate for yourself by some easy research.

Immigrant workers are actively lured to the United States largely by big business employers who don’t want to pay decent wages. But American families also rely on cheap goods and services to maintain a sense of material status. Also, after decades of wage stagnation where we’re all working more and more hours to make ends meet, U.S.-born workers rely on low-wage nannies and housekeepers and other service workers to pick up the slack of family life. According to data cited by the Wall Street Journal, every 1 new immigrant creates 1.2 new jobs for local workers. 

Also,

“…considering that comprehensive immigration reform—legislation both parties once supported—would boost employment, investment and productivity and grow the tax base, the jobs case against undocumented immigrants is increasingly hard to make.”

Next, somehow these people have began to claim –incorrectly– immigrants are a drain to public benefits. Trump, like most anti’s, depend only on fake, fabricated or deceptive facts known as alternative facts; never do they have a respectable source to cite.

As Time so accurately puts it:

Citing a study by an anti-immigrant organization, Trump said: “illegal immigrant households receive far more in welfare benefits” than native citizens.That assertion has been disputed by the conservative Cato Institute, which actually found that they are less likely to use welfare benefits than citizens—both in terms of frequency and dollar amount.

How can that statement ever be true when it has been made illegal for undocumented immigrants to obtain public benefits. They do not qualify for food stamps, Medicaid or any of the other public benefits despite the fact that they pay approximately  $13 billion in payroll taxes annually (that’s a net gain, by the way).

They help to fund the public benefits they cannot receive yet the very same people complaining about this false issue could or can or even do receive public benefits of all sort.

To take it one step further, if people took a look at the 1996 welfare law, they would learn that not even legal immigrants don’t have access to public benefits until they’ve been in America for more than five years.

As for Social Security, Trump and his deceitful supporters would have us believe that illegal immigrants also don’t pay money towards these benefits but take advantage of it, nevertheless.

The reality is very different.

Illegal immigrants, again, are not even eligible to collect Social Security (SSA) benefits. Despite that, they still are responsible for paying $100 billion in Social Security. According to a statement by the SSA to CNNMoney regarding illegal immigrants and social security benefits:

“They are paying an estimated $15 billion a year into Social Security with no intention of ever collecting benefits,” Stephen Goss, chief actuary of the SSA told CNNMoney. “Without the estimated 3.1 million undocumented immigrants paying into the system, Social Security would have entered persistent shortfall of tax revenue to cover payouts starting in 2009,” he said. 

Stephen Goss went on to say how vital these workers are in maintaining as well as improving, quote,

“…the effects of the decline in U.S.-born workers paying into the system.”

FURTHER, the Social Security Board of Trustees projects  by 2037 that the system won’t any longer be able to pay rightful benefits promised to “American citizens”.

These allegations of “illegal” immigrants being the reason for unemployment, accusing them of stealing, abusing or whatever other hateful alternative “facts” can be verified if people are willing to do some research and reading. I’ve addressed a few above, but for more facts or simple information, don’t use your same biased resources but instead use an independent resource so you can become aware of
what you are saying, before you speak.

I hope those of you who were unaware will now head off to research the real facts, not the racist, biased ones planted in their minds via Fox News or Donald Trump.

With too many people and families in America facing –unrightfully so,- being ripped apart from their families, taken back to a violent or dangerous situation or country, just to name a few circumstances going on now with the “bans” and raids on people for no reason, I’d think knowing what you believe and support as your politics would be made the ever more important, for those who care for the consideration and care of other human lives.

Some Information on White Privilege; All White People Need to Know & Grasp This

This is for any one whom reads this or comes across and doesn’t know what white privilege is; here is a great video to explain it. If you are white, and don’t believe you have a ‘privilege’ but you want to know what we are all talking about please check this out.

I’m not sure if you Fox News watchers are aware of this or not, but Fox News and all media for that matter but Fox News in particular as they took the issue of lying to the public via the media to court- and won that right-.. it is LEGAL for these “news” channels to lie to you, to deceive you.

With that said, the first video is with a host whom I adore, Thom Hartmann, probably one of the only white men I’ve seen who can handle that racism is going on still, and correctly from the days of slavery being its roots. In this first video, he uses Bill O Riely as an example but then works his way out to any white American who more likely than not do not understand what white privilege is, or that they have it.

It’s your responsibility as a HUMAN to watch this, white people. Make sure you are not abusing your whiteness, for if you ask me having light skin is a curse. I don’t want a ‘gift’ or ‘privilege’ if others can’t have it…but sadly I can’t rid myself of my skin.

Inform yourself and make sure you are not contributing to a problem you may even think you are helping, or perhaps you think ‘doesn’t exist’- either way… I challenge you to realize, sadly, white people, especially males, have it far easier in America… Yes we know whites are victims of the police at times too; but not at the rate the Black community is. The FBI set it up this way, under Hoover, whom wanted to divide and conquer with guns and drugs… Slave patrols became modern day police, just a new name, not a real change in anything. So while white people may undergo police abuse or shootings some, it is no where close to that of Black Americans and they need to get over it.

The second video is shorter but with not as detailed, so to speak. Still, powerful and informative and definitely a video I hope anyone wanting to gain insight into themselves should see.
He is talking during the Zimmerman trial, talks about white privilege, using two tragic and real statements from President Obama as prime examples of exactly what white privilege is.

Protesting Trump and His Cruelty regarding immigrants

Right on! This may not change things but there is still benefit in protests……. I never thought I’d write about a presidency but Trump was the worst of all the choices; others would have been bad but none would have so heartlessly and so blatantly executed laws such as he did to those who who under President Obama had made some form of positive changes and progress within society, that can be said at the VERY least.

all lives matter blue lives black lives white lives
That’s what “Make Amerikkka Great AGAIN would do for America has NEVER been great; but made slow but steady progress…before Trump came

I’ll be posting on a new blog site dedicated to exposing Amerikkka’s history; from racism to other…and of course, I’ll be posting a lot on Trump’s lies & why he isn’t my president. I’ll post a link up to this site when I’ve got it up politics but history as well.

This site of course is staying up this is my main site plus it’s in regards to far more than just politics and history. i just didn’t want people who don’t wanna see truth to get bombarded by it and i also didn’t want trump covering my website
