AtlantaJan. 13 — For more than 100 years, Parchman Prison in Sunflower County, in Mississippi’s Delta region, has been the location of brutal racism, wretched conditions and unrelenting cruelty.Six Parchman prisoners in one cell, sleeping on cold floor with no blankets.Parchman is also the site of Mississippi’s Death Row execution chamber.The deaths of five inmates in Mississippi prisons during the first week of January 2020 — three of those at Parchman – has brought much needed attention to the inhumane conditions endured by the state’s prison population. The official response to the deaths was a statewide lockdown that stopped visitation and phone calls — and locked all inmates in their cells for days without required showers, medical care, legal visits or exercise.At a Jan. 9 rally at the Georgia State Capitol building in support of the Mississippi prisoners, two Black women with relatives in Parchman’s Unit 29 brought their stories of days of fearful waiting, not knowing if a brother or fiancé were dead or alive, injured or safe.Parchman’s legacy of slaveryMississippi Corrections officials released next to no information despite numerous phone calls. The spate of violent death only became public knowledge because of cell phone videos and text messages from those held in Unit 29, the largest housing section at Parchman.Both women provided virtually the same descriptions of conditions their loved ones were enduring — rats and roaches everywhere, mold on the walls, no running water, broken toilets, no lights, exposed wiring, inedible food, callous and intimidating guards, collapsing ceilings, rain pouring in from holes in the roof with stifling heat in the summer, damp cold in the winter.Porshia Evans said her brother was stabbed multiple times in Wilkinson County Jail prior to being sent to Parchman in November — evidence that violent conditions are throughout the system. Her brother, her only sibling, sent word that he has survived at Parchman, but guards have confiscated his canteen items, hygiene products, legal papers, letter writing materials and books. He was removed from Unit 29 to Unit 32, a building taken out of use 10 years ago because of its decrepit condition. There he and others were put, six or more, into cells without running water and had to sleep on the floor with no mats or blankets.The second woman, worried about repercussions for her fiancé, asked to be known only by her initials, CCC, to tell his story. A fast food worker and mother of six, she actually got confirmation that he was alive and uninjured while at the Jan. 9 rally. He related to her that by chance he was standing near one of the men who was killed and that he and others had been in the “hole” (solitary) for seven days. With more recent news, she knows he was later removed to Unit 32 and hasn’t had a shower since New Year’s Eve. He says many have been injured in encounters with other inmates and prison forces.Evans and CCC both said that bad storms in the area Jan. 10-11 caused the electrical power to go out at Parchman. There were no lights and no running water. Though power was restored in the area, prison officials had not manually turned the power back on as of Jan. 12.Death at ParchmanMeanwhile, prison officials continue to provide little information to the families of the men who were killed. In a Jan. 12 Atlanta Journal Constitution article, Rotonia Gates, the mother of Walter “Keon” Gates who was killed Dec. 31; Jeffrie Hollman, whose son Roosevelt Hollman was beaten and stabbed to death Jan. 2; and other relatives provided details about their loved ones’ fate.Denorris Howell’s blood-covered body was found Jan. 3 in Unit 29. He had spoken to his mother just hours before his murder, pleading for help, fearful he was going to die. Relatives of the five men who were killed question the role of the guards, are critical of Department of Corrections officials, and wonder about the inaction of elected state officials related to the deaths of their loved ones. Mississippi has the third highest incarceration rate in the U.S. — the country that leads the world in incarceration. Parchman Prison has been a death trap since its earliest days. In addition, Parchman is part of the Southern prison-industrial complex, with its roots in slavery, which made money off convict leasing to big plantations and companies through the 1920s and profited from notorious chain gangs during Jim Crow segregation. Now, prisons sign lucrative contracts with private companies for commissary or phone services, while mass incarceration laws continue to target people of color communities. Mass incarceration needs a mass activist response. Justice for the Mississippi Five!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

News UpdatesDelhi High Court Seeks Centre’s Response On Delhi Govt Request For Armed Forces Support For Oxygen Supplies, COVID Facilities Srishti Ojha3 May 2021 4:14 AMShare This – xThe Delhi High Court has on Monday directed Centre to report instructions on action taken on communication made by Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia, to Defense Minister Rajnath Singh for lending services of armed forces to set up Covid 19 facilities, oxygen supply, etc.A Division bench comprising of Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Rekha Palli sought the instructions on the submissions made by Senior Advocates Abhinav Vashisht, Krishna Venugopal and amicus curiae Rajshekhar Rao.On Oxygen Supply, Transportation and Assistance of Army and Air ForceDuring the course of hearing, the Bench was apprised by Senior Advocate Abhinav Vashisht that the assistance of armed forces is taken for providing logistical support with regards to the oxygen supply. According to Vashisht, this would also do away with instances of black marketing and would eventually lessen the difficulties faced by doctors and patients in the national capital.At this stage, Senior Advocate Krishna Venugopal also suggested the Court that the Delhi Government may contact Local Commanders of Army, Navy and Air force incharge of Delhi establishments, so time of coordination between Ministries may be reduced.Similarly, amicus curiae Rao suggested that Army’s help may be taken to take care of filling stations, where diversion seems to he happening on ground. “A buffer stock can be maintained, atleast for next two days.” Said Rao.Replying to the aforesaid submissions, Rahul Mehra appearing for GNCTD, while relying upon the Supreme Court’s order in the suo moto covid supplies case, submitted thus:”Please ask them till when will Supreme Court’s directions be complied with. We don’t need to argue further. It’s already been said by SC. They have said that Delhi govt and Centre needs to co-operate. I’m requesting this be implemented.”Reading out the Apex court’s order stating that the deficit has to be dealt with by Centre by creating buffer stock, coordinating with states, Mehra went ahead to submit that the issue of transportation of medical oxygen by suppliers should be taken up by the Central Government.”They should not write letters, they should tell us what to do, in need of interest of citizens.” Mehra argued.At this juncture, Advocate Vashisht argued “We’re clear its a war, and wars can be fought by armed forces and not by common citizens. We’re in a war like situation.”The Bench took note of the letter dated 2nd May 2021 written by the Delhi Government to the Defense Minister Rajnath Singh asking for the support of armed forces for setting up covid facilities.At this point, Sharma however submitted that since the Supreme Court had issued directions and the parties were before it, the issue must be left to be considered by the Apex Court.Not agreeing to the aforesaid submission, the Bench remarked thus:”Supreme Court has not dealt with requirement of more beds. SC has considered and dealt with oxygen regarding oxygen and State Cooperation, not regarding hospital beds etc.”Furthermore, Justice Sanghi orally observed “You can’t tell us Supreme Court has passed the order SC will deal with it. We are all duty bound.”The Court took note of the suggestion made by Mr. Venugopal that communication be sent to station commanders in Delhi to expedite the actions to be taken in pursuance of the aforesaid.During the later course of hearing, ASG Chetan Sharma apprised the bench that the Defense Minister, Rajnath Singh is himself looking into the issue.On Covid Guidance and Management of Covid PatientsDuring the course of hearing, suggestions poured in from Mr. Venugopal who apprised the bench about clinical guidance for management of Adult covid19 patients. “I’m told there are now US and UK doctors helping patients in India through tele consultation and retain people even at stage of moderate condition and avoiding hospitalisation. This tele consultation can help. If its done well it would be equally effective in Delhi.” Venugopal submitted.Furthermore, it was also suggested that larger number of retired doctors can be brought in to reduce the crisis in near future.On this, amicus curiae Rao suggested that the Government can put a system in place for people to know when to consult a doctor.Flagging the issues with regards to crematoriums and oxygen Concentrators, Venugopal submitted thus:”I’m told 100s of concentrators are stuck in customs. If the custom can be put on war footing to clear immediately on priority, first to hospitals then individuals followed by distributord with undertaking to not black market. We can make demands from State, but when we see people dying, we feel we need to step up and help. Delhi govt with the LG can being something in.”At this juncture, the Bench enquired about the status of pending oxygen concentrators.”People should not loose lives for this. That there are resources but they are pending clearance”, the bench observed.Portal on Availability of Covid Medicines, Testing, Oxygen Supply: Issues Highlighted by AmicusAmicus Curiae Rao flagged important issues with regards to the administration of covid drugs and covid supplies in the national capital.Starting of, Rao highlighted that the portal for medicines which had to be operational in one day according to court’s order, has.jot been done yet by the GNCTD.

iStock/Thinkstock(LAS VEGAS) — Police have released intense bodycam footage from the deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas last October that shows first responders struggling to dodge bullets and shield victims with little understanding of where the gunfire was coming from.The Las Vegas Metro Police Department on Wednesday released more than two dozen video files with hours of officer bodycam footage and about 500 recordings of phone calls from the night of Oct. 1, when suspected shooter Stephen Paddock unleashed a hail of bullets onto a crowd of concertgoers.“There’s a lot of casualties right in the middle of the field,” one officer yelled.“It’s coming from the Mandalay Bay,” another office screamed. “Get behind the police car.”The videos captured the earliest moments of what became the worst mass shooting in U.S. history — 58 people died and more than 800 suffered injuries.Paddock, 64, unloaded more than 1,000 rounds from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino before killing himself, police said.Names of the officers in the new videos were not provided in the department’s latest release, which came in response to a lawsuit from news organizations, including ABC. The department had initially refused to release the footage, despite requests from journalists, who were forced to sue.Authorities have released six batches of files containing audio, video and documents in connection with the massacre, but they have not offered any new information about a possible motive in the shooting.Some of the video released Wednesday showed officers taking cover as bullets first rained down on the crowd.“We got everyone trying to respond for victims, but no one trying to lock this very large scene down,” one officer said from inside a patrol car. “I have two people shot in the head. They aren’t doing too well.”Unlike previous releases, including video from May that showed the inside of Paddock’s hotel room, this new material depicted moments of chaos as well as heroism.Footage shows officers and good Samaritans tending to wounded victims near the Route 91 Harvest music festival, where the shooting started. One responding officer was seen sheltering with several concertgoers, before he jumped into action and carried a gunshot victim to a triage area and eventually to a hospital.At one point, you see a young woman calling her father to tell him there was a shooting.“Dad, I love you. I’m going to make it OK,” she said. “I’m gonna try to get there.”Las Vegas police also released 511 audio clips from 911 calls, on par with those it made public last week.Investigators recovered 23 guns and thousands of rounds of ammunition from Paddock’s hotel suite, in which he shot himself as police closed in.Investigators previously disclosed that he had researched police SWAT tactics, rented hotel rooms overlooking other outdoor concerts and investigated potential targets in at least four U.S. cities, according to a preliminary report.The FBI is expected to release its final report on the shooting in July.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

iStock(CHICAGO) — Federal prosecutors in Illinois, filed an amended indictment against singer R. Kelly on Friday in which an additional victim and a forfeiture request of over $1.5 million to dismantle his production companies, were added to the case.Kelly, whose real name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, is facing charges in four different jurisdictions across the country where he is being accused of sexually abusing and exploiting underage girls for over the course of 25 years.In the 13-count indictment filed by the U.S. District Court Northern District of Illinois Eastern Division, Kelly is accused of separately victimizing five underage girls since 1997 when they were between the ages 12 to 16.In a superseding indictment, allegations related to “Minor 2” were removed and “Minor 6” was added. According to the newly filed indictment, from 1997 to 2000 Kelly and “Minor 6”– who was about 14 or 15-years-old when they met — engaged in “sexual activity.”Kelly is not accused of videotaping himself with “Minor 6” but allegedly had with “Minor 1, Minor 4 and Minor 5,” prosecutors said.Kelly’s defense attorney Steven Greenberg responded to the indictment on his Twitter account.“We are aware of the superseding indictment. We continue to fight for him and look forward to the day he is free #notguilty #rkelly,” wrote Greenberg.Kelly’s employees Derrel McDavid and Milton Brown also known as “June Brown” are still named as co-defendants.McDavid and Brown are accused of funneling hush money through Kelly’s production companies Bass Productions and RSK Enterprises, LLC. to the some of the victims and others in exchange for the sexually explicit videos of the minors.“Kelly, McDavid, and others agreed to pay money and caused money to be paid on Kelly’s behalf to victims, witnesses and others to ensure that they would not cooperate with law enforcement and would conceal and cover up evidence, including videos, relating to Kelly’s sexual contact and sexual acts with minors…” according to the superseding indictment.“The superseding indictment is just an extension of the government’s inaccurate theory about Mr. McDavid. We are looking forward to proving his innocence at trial,” said Vadim Glozman in an email to ABC News on Saturday.Request for comment from Brown’s attorneys Mary Higgins Judge and Maria Teresa Gonzalez were not immediately received. They have both previously entered not guilty pleadings to the allegations.The refiled court documents also seek — after a conviction — Kelly to forfeit $1,554,748 and “all rights, title, and interest in stock and all other ownership interests in Bass Productions, Ltd. and Winkler & McDavid, Ltd., in whatever form held by defendants.”Shortly after the six-hour Lifetime docuseries “Surviving R. Kelly” premiered over the course of three days in January 2019, the first of four indictments were announced.Kelly is charged in four separate indictments filed by Cook County State Attorney Kim Foxx for allegations that he allegedly sexually assaulted or abused three girls and an adult woman.The 53-year-old faces a separate racketeering conspiracy indictment in U.S. Eastern District Court in New York which alleges he sought out underage girls attending his concerts and groomed them for later sexual abuse.Kelly is also facing prostitution and solicitation charges in Minnesota for allegedly inviting a 17-year-old, who asked for his autograph in 2001, to his hotel room and paid her $200 to strip for him.The Chicago-born singer was acquitted of sexual abuse charges in June 2008 stemming from allegations related to “Minor 1” where “Minor 1” and “Minor 5” were allegedly paid by Kelly to lie to the grand jury, according to the indictment.The embattled singer has pleaded not guilty to all charges and has been remanded without bond at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Chicago since his July 2019 arrest.
