Locked Down, Locked Out, by Maya Schenwar


Through the stories of prisoners and their families, including her own family’s experiences, Maya Schenwar shows how the institution that locks up 2.3 million Americans and decimates poor communities of color is shredding the ties that, if nurtured, could foster real collective safety. As she vividly depicts here, incarceration takes away the very things that might enable people to build better lives. But looking toward a future beyond imprisonment, Schenwar profiles community-based initiatives that successfully deal with problems—both individual harm and larger social wrongs—through connection rather than isolation, moving toward a safer, freer future for all of us.

Maya Schenwar is Truthout's editor-in-chief and the author of Locked Down, Locked Out: Why Prison Doesn’t Work and How We Can Do Better.

Previously, she was a senior editor and reporter at Truthout, writing on U.S. defense policy, the criminal justice system, campaign politics, and immigration reform. Prior to her work at Truthout, Maya was contributing editor at Punk Planet magazine. She has also written for the Guardian, In These Times Magazine, AlterNet, Z Magazine, Bitch Magazine, Common Dreams, the New Jersey Star-Ledger, and others. She also served as a publicity coordinator for Voices for Creative Nonviolence. Maya is on the Board of Advisors at Waging Nonviolence. An impressive list of Schenwar's articles is available at this link:

MARY'S ASSESSMENT
This writer is impressed with the level of understanding about the prison system that is continually demonstrated by Maya Schenwar and Truthout writers. Privatized prisons are businesses. Like any business, they are concerned with having a steady flow of fresh commodities, and that drives up America's incarceration rate. Education and rehabilitation of inmates, counseling for drug abusers, resuming Medicaid for inpatients in mental hospitals, and funding assisted outpatient treatment (AOT) programs for mentally ill Americans would significantly reduce America's 67.5 percent recidivism rate. These and other prison reform methods are largely ignored by prison officials as well as prison investors, many of whom work in local and federal government offices (a conflict of interest).

Businesses prioritize keeping expenditures low, which negatively impacts inmates' access to nutritious and adequate meals and medical care. Some prisons hire fewer guards than are needed to allow inmates in solitary confinement to actually have their one-hour of daily exercise outside their cells. In fact, some inmates are kept in their tiny cells for weeks and even months at a time, increasing inmates' torture to guarantee that many who arrived in prison sane people will leave with some level of brain damage. A recent Truthout article is entitled "For-Profit Prisons: Eight Statistics That Show the Problems." It can be accessed by using the link below.

Maya Schenwar's "Locked Down, Locked Out" is recommended for advocates against mass incarceration and inhumane prison conditions. Her research and interviews with prisoners and their families as well as her own family's experiences uniquely qualify Schenwar to explain "why prisons don't work" and advise Americans on "how we can do better" without reducing community safety.

REVIEWS
“Maya Schenwar's stories about prisoners, their families (including her own), and the thoroughly broken punishment system are rescued from any pessimism such narratives might inspire by the author's brilliant juxtaposition of abolitionist imaginaries and radical political practices.”
—Angela Y. Davis, author of "Are Prisons Obsolete?"

“This book has the power to transform hearts and minds, opening us to new ways of imagining what justice can mean for individuals, families, communities, and our nation as a whole. Maya Schenwar’s personal, openhearted sharing of her own family’s story, together with many other stories and real-world experiments with transformative justice, makes this book compelling, highly persuasive, and difficult to put down. I turned the last page feeling nothing less than inspired.”
—Michelle Alexander, author of "The New Jim Crow"

“A tour de force! Schenwar has written a must-read, damning account of the twisted philosophy and practice of incarceration …Until society changes its approach toward its ‘offenders,’ until we leaven punishment with forgiveness, reconciliation, and restorative justice, we are all guilty as charged.”
—Dennis J. Kucinich, US Congressman (1997–2013) and presidential candidate

“Locked Down, Locked Out paints a searing portrait of the real-life human toll of mass incarceration, both on prisoners and on their families, and—equally compellingly—provides hope that collectively we can create a more humane world freed of prisons. Read this deeply personal and political call to end the shameful inhumanity of our prison nation.”
—Dorothy Roberts, author of "Shattered Bonds and Killing the Black Body"

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/nnia1/2015/01/27/dave-koch-joins-human-rights-for-prisoners-march-from-prison-to-the-ivory-tower

The Dave Koch interview Part 1 was taped at 3pmEST on Blogtalkradio on January 25. The archived tape is available at Blogtalkradio 24/7.
http://www.blogtalkradio.com/humanrightsdemand/2015/01/25/david-koch-advises-parolees-on-successful-re-entry We were joined on air by justice advocate, Nancy Lockhart; Dr. Mustafa Ansari, an international human rights lawyer; and Joanna, administrative assistant of Human Rights for Prisoners March.


Koch reinvented himself after prison and believes we all can. His website is called "Self Reinvention" http://www.selfreinvention.org/

Don't miss this opportunity to converse with Dave Koch, who went from prisons to become a pilot. Then he was co-founder, president, CEO and chairman of the 68th fastest growing company in America - Fiber Network Solutions. Koch's company was among those that built the infrastructure of the Internet in North America. Koch also authored "Slaying the Dragon," a book to inspire us all to conquer the dragons in our lives. Even released prisoners like himself can make it to the ivory tower.

"Don't tell me that you can't have a great life after serving time in prison! It requires work, and just don't quit!" ~Dave Koch

"The Urban News" published an article in 2009 about the ex-con who became one of the most successful men in the USA, called "Ex-Con Turned CEO Declares: 'Accept Self-Blame and Re-Invent Yourself!'"
http://theurbannews.com/lifestyles/2009/ex-con-turned-ceo-declares-accept-self-blame-and-re-invent-yourself/


Over 30 years ago, on August 7, 1980, at the age of 24, Koch was released on parole after serving both federal and state sentences of 18 months to five years. Koch made the commitment to never return to prison, and set out on his life-long journey, reentering mainstream society and pursuing a new life and careers that include; Flight Instructor, Airline Transport Pilot, Software Developer and co-founder, President & CEO of the 68th Fastest Growing Company in America - 2001 Inc 500 List. 

Throughout his career as a pilot, Koch earned all of his commercial and instructor certificates and ratings, including the highest certificate attainable - the Airline Transport Pilot Certificate. Koch spent many years providing flight and ground instruction, and flying corporate jets, including the Learjet, Cessna Citation and Israeli Westwind II, and numerous turboprop aircraft. Koch co-founded Fiber Network Solutions during 1995 and served as its Chairman, President & CEO until he sold the company in 2003. Fiber Network Solutions was one of the companies that built the infrastructure of the Internet in North America. Fiber Network Solutions was started on a shoe string. 

Among his many awards, Koch earned the Entrepreneur of the Year finalist, Best in Business, and was twice distinguished on the Inc 500 List of America’s Fastest Growing Companies - # 68 Nationally, and # 1 in Ohio. Koch’s life and career began after his release from prison. His compelling 30-year career as a member of mainstream society provides the irrefutable evidence that a successful reentry into mainstream society, a path of normalcy and legitimacy, and all of the rich rewards that life has to offer are attainable after a felony conviction and an incarceration event. Whether a person wants one or not, they are going to have a journey. The destinations of their journey are dependent upon the choices they make during their journey.

Getting Away with Murder, by George Mallinckrodt


George Mallinckrodt is a psychotherapist who formerly worked in Florida prisons counseling mentally ill inmates. He observed an alarming pattern of abuse by corrections officers and complained. He was then fired. 

Months later, Mallinckrodt learned about the death by scalding of Darren Rainey, a 50-year-old black mentally ill inmate who guards scalded to death in a small shower. Rainey was tortured under a strong spray of 180°F water (water boils at 212°F). Rainey's skin had to be scraped from the shower after his body was removed. No charges were filed after Rainey's homicide, and no autopsy report was released to date. 

Disgusted by the lack of accountability. Mallinckrodt published a book about abused mentally ill inmates, murderous corrections officers, and the Florida Department of Corrections called "Getting Away with Murder." 

Mallinckrodt advocates on behalf of the mentally ill. He recently met with with Senator Greg Evers, the Chairman of the Criminal Justice Committee, and staffers.


"The Florida Department of Corrections is riddled with amoral, sadistic sociopaths and the people who support, enable, and cover-up their crimes." ~ @GeoMallinckrodt (Twitter)

"If what is done to mentally ill Florida inmates was done in the military, these would be considered war crimes." ~George Mallinckrodt 

Excerpt from a book review by Amy M., August 17, 2014:

A shocking and darkly humorous account of working with mentally ill inmates in Florida's Dade Correctional Institution. George Mallinckrodt writes a gritty, mesmerizing account of his three years as psychotherapist in the "Transitional Care Unit" of the Dade Correctional Institution in South Florida, where inmates with mental health problems, including the most severe mental illnesses, are housed.


Mallinckrodt agreed to be our guest on "Human Rights Demand."

Part 1 of George Mallinckrodt's interview at "Human Rights Demand" channel on Blogtalkradio is available for listening 24/7 at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/humanrightsdemand/2015/01/11/getting-away-with-murder-a-george-mallinckrodt-interview

"Judging Me," by Mary Elizabeth Bullock

I hope my online friends are enjoying a slower pace after Christmas, and many might have a vacation week. This is an excellent time to read. Here is an inspiring book: "Judging Me," by Mary Elizabeth Bullock.

This inspiring memoir describes a hard-won life of achievement. In the face of overwhelming adversity, Mary Elizabeth Bullock makes her name as an experienced trial litigator, a respected business law professor, and a federal civil rights judge. She finds brilliant success in spite of being blind, and being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus, and despite having enduring a childhood poisoned by unspeakable abuse. Her book offers hope and motivation to others who have been cruelly betrayed by those who should have been their protectors. It holds knowledge that can help heal adults damaged by sexually abusive childhoods, and it offers understanding and support to those who love them. 

When she was a helpless child, Bullock's father sexually abused her for ten plus years,, She was beaten, tortured, sold into sex slavery and molested in physically and psychologically unbearable ways. Perhaps worst of all, he taught her to believe that the evil he did to her was her own fault. Bullock chose to finally tell her story in the hope that others might see that they are not alone, that their stories of abuse do not have the last word. Child sexual abuse is frighteningly common. Nevertheless, the realities of child abuse are often denied by people who cannot bear to believe that it exists. 

Some of those abused as children grow up to disbelieve their own stories, or to minimize the damage their brutal past has done them. As a child, Bullock suffered horrific abuse, alone and without support. As a young woman, she was drive to succeed, in spite of what was done to her. She invented a different public personality for herself, once she was able to escape. Outwardly, she donned the armor of achievement and success by garnering high academic honors and rising to a position of power and influence. 

Taking full advantage of the scholarships she won, in spite of her chaotic home life, Bullock earned the necessary education to advance her out of the degrading life she grew up in. As an adult, she began a legal career that allowed her to help the disenfranchised, disillusioned and dispossessed. But even after achieving a life that would make anyone proud, under her polished and professional exterior, Bullock was always uncertain, and aware of the past that relentlessly pursued her. Time after time she found herself in negative relationships, never understanding why she was continuously drawn to shattered men, childishly selfish men, and men who hated women as they tried to love them. Through years of seeking, she gained understanding of herself and of others like her. 

At last, finding her own peace, Bullock made truce with her unforgotten past and gained the necessary self-esteem needed to build genuine relationships. Mary Elizabeth Bullock thanks God for saving her from a life of despair. She hopes, with this heartfelt memoir, to share her experience and hard-won knowledge that healing is possible, and that a life worth living is attainable. In this memoir, she proves that the human spirit can triumph over the longest odds.

Please congratulate Judge Bullock after reading her book:

Merry Christmas from MaryLovesJustice and AIMI

Wishing all online friends a very joyful holiday season. If something is preventing that from happening in your lives, we hope you will continue to pursue happiness, because that is your right. See the greeting I made for you below. Cyber stalkers admire it so much that they rendered it invisible on certain cellphones.



Condolences to all the families that lost loved ones due to mental illness in 2014. We're working for deliverance for families experiencing mental health crisis, particularly those who have imprisoned sick relatives. Thanks to online friends who help give Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill.



Two poems by Mary Neal - all rights reserved
"Jesus Christ's Christmas in Solitary"
At Christmastime it seems so cold

to lock sick people in the hole 
Mental illness is their crime 
Over a million doing hard time

We sing carols about Emanuel
and His blessed Mother Mary
But Jesus' left the manger now
He's locked in solitary

"Whatever you do to the least of these,
you do also to me" 
Christ shivers in His lonely cell 
Every sick prisoner is He

What will we do to rescue our Lord
and save Him from His plight?
God gave His Son to restore us all
Let's treat His brethren right
(Matthew 25:40)


I have not had such interference publishing a poem since I published "Dog Justice." "Jesus Christ's Christmas in Solitary" was published years ago, but the cyber stalkers act like it is brand new. They are truly psychopaths. See below another holiday favorite, "Empty Chair at Christmas." I wrote it about my mentally disabled brother who was secretly arrested for 18 days and returned to his family as a naked corpse, without explanation, inquest, investigation, and with due process of law denied. The poem is about Larry Neal, but his circumstances nearly match other mentally ill people killed in custody in the United States of America.





"Empty Chair at Christmas"

There is an empty chair at our Christmas table
That was yours to fill
It’s been eleven long years since you left us
And we don’t know why – still

We’ve asked year after year
But no one will answer our query
Why was he arrested – why did he die
Please tell us what happened to Larry

"No explanation! No records! Stop asking!"
This is the official reply
From all the government offices
“He’s dead – let sleeping dogs lie"

But we’ll not give up, my brother
Until we know what is true
There’s an empty chair at our Christmas table
That should have been filled by you

We'll have dinner together again some day
At the Lamb’s great Wedding Feast
You’ll have a sound heart and clear mind
No longer last and least

Until then we’ll help those like you
Befuddled, confused, afraid
In jail for mental illness
May our commitment never fade!

"Black Lives Don't Matter" says The Cochran Firm's Low Demand for John Crawford III Lawsuit


John Crawford was killed in Walmart in August for shopping while black. According to a news articles by Russia Today (RT) and MSNBC, The Cochran Firm frauds are only seeking $75k from Walmart and Beavercreek, Ohio Police Department for Crawford's survivors.

The $75k demand in Crawford's civil action is the smallest wrongful death demand this writer has ever read. The 22-year-old man's child will be deprived of his support throughout his/her lifetime. Crawford's mother will not have his love and support as she ages. To demand such a small amount of money from Walmart and the police department responsible for Crawford's death is obscene. But this is expected behavior for The Cochran Firm, which typically works behind its black clients' backs to protect police departments and large corporations.

The grand jury in Crawford's case refused to indict the police officers who killed him, just as no officers were indicted for the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown. Public protests continue regarding the lack of justice in all three cases. Caucasians as well as African Americans are offended that police approached and shot Crawford in his back while he was using the phone in Walmart. In fact, a white woman was reportedly run over and arrested by police at a protest for Crawford this week (see the RawStory article link below). The jury pool in Crawford's wrongful death civil action case would undoubtedly include people who have strong feelings about the innocent young man's death. However, there will be no jury trial in the civil matter, because Crawford's family was never warned about The Cochran Firm fraud. Crawford's survivors essentially chose their defendants' own lawyer as their wrongful death attorney.

In the wrongful death of Jerome Murdough case, The Cochran Firm frauds settled the case involving the Marine Corps veteran who was baked to death in Riker's Island Jail for less than 10 percent of the demand, without filing a lawsuit. If that happens in Crawford's case, his survivors may receive under $7,500 for his wrongful death. Even if the family is awarded the entire $75k, The Cochran Firm frauds will keep over 35 percent, according to our contract with the CoIntelPro law firm (See the Wrongful Death of Larry Neal.com website online). This case may have the smallest wrongful death demand on record, which is probably why corrupt attorneys downgraded the charge to "negligence." Who pays The Cochran Firm when it demands so little (and sometimes nothing at all) for the lives of African American clients?

It is disheartening that many media companies, including those owned by blacks, know about The Cochran Firm fraud but refuse to warn African American legal consumers. Learn more about The Cochran Firm frauds in articles and videos in this blog  http://CochranFirmFraud.blogspot.com

Families that experience wrongful deaths by police should stay away from The Cochran Firm frauds. The law firm's small demand in the John Crawford, III case says "BLACK LIVES DON'T MATTER."

Obama Administration and Police Brutality


1)  From time to time I read accusations against Attorney General Holder wherein conservative whites call him a racist favoring blacks. I disagree with this assessment because of his successful attempt to keep blacks interned - some for life - for possession of crack cocaine, which only helps prison owners and investors. 

2)  I would like to read inmates' revelations of how they felt when Attorney General Holder appealed the judge's decision that the Fair Sentencing Act would be applied retroactively. Because he won the appeal, thousands of black inmates whose sentences would have been over or nearly over are still interned in prisons throughout the nation at great cost to taxpayers as well as to inmates and their families. This administration defies the United Nations' recommendation for the Fair Sentencing Act to be applied retroactively.

3)  Do you feel that this administration is doing all that it can and should do to curb police violence against African Americans? Considering its stance against releasing prisoners who were sentenced under the racist crack to powder cocaine sentencing law, do you feel this administration is likely to ever take a strong stance against mass incarceration or police violence that disproportionately affect African Americans?

4)  Part of my reluctance to believe this administration will try to curb police violence against African Americans is based on the USDOJ's refusal thus far to release information, records, and things regarding the secret arrest and murder of my mentally, physically disabled brother, Larry Neal, who was a black man. The refusal of accountability for his secret arrest and demise in a publicly owned jail that was already under the jurisdiction of the USDOJ (after a lawsuit by the USA against Memphis Shelby County Jail) indicates that this administration actively works against justice for African Americans, even to the point of breaking the law to protect murderous police and corrections officers. 


5)  Helping police and corrections officers to avoid accountability for crimes against America's most vulnerable people is why Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill (AIMI) plans an international action against the USA. Larry's murder under secret arrest and other wrongful deaths of mentally ill Americans of all races will go before the International Court in 2015. Such an action should be unnecessary to protect the human and civil rights of our homeless and mentally disabled citizens who are often neglected, brutalized and killed, and interned in large numbers (1.25 million) in "correctional facilities" where prisoner abuse is common and the press is disallowed.
http://AIMI-HumanRights.blogspot.com

6) Attorney General Holder reminded Americans that the USDOJ's investigation of Ferguson and Michael Brown's death is still ongoing. That would sound promising, except that Attorney General Holder also built hope in the Clemency Project 2014 but failed to authorize defense attorneys to participate. That was said to render the large clemency drive a dud. Considering past evidence, how likely is the DOJ investigation to contradict the findings of the Ferguson grand jury?
http://www.mediate.com/online/holder-reminds-everyone-that-dojs-ferguson-investigation-is-ongoing/


7) Doing what benefits private prison corporations and other big businesses seems to be a priority in Washington. Last year, corporate profits reached an all-time high of $1.68 trillion, while the share of profits that trickled down to workers hit its lowest point since the 1950's. Concerned citizens should therefore try to enlist support for justice from Big Business. This writer believes that unless there is a successful Boycott 4 Justice related to Ferguson, no federal charges will be levied against Wilson, and unrequited police violence against African Americans will continue to worsen during this administration.
