USA: Stephen glömdes bort i en isoleringscell i fängelset under 2 år - drog själv ut sina tänder

(En artikel från 2013) Stephen R. Slevin arresterades för ett bagatellbrott inom narkotikainnehav och han låstes in i väntan på rättegång. Av olika anledningar så sattes Stephen i en isoleringscell. Men av okänd anledning så glömdes stackars Stephen bort och någon rättegång hölls aldrig...
Stephen tillbringade till slut över 2 år, bortglömd i sin isoleringscell och resultatet syns tydligt på bilden. En remake av Stephen gjord av det amerikanska fängelsesystemet.

- Stephen har i efterhand tilldelats över 15 miljoner dollar som plåster på såren...


Man Forgotten in Solitary Confinement For Years

Publicerad den 15 mar 2013
"A southern New Mexico county announced Tuesday that it reached a $15.5 million settlement to end the legal battle over the case of a man who was held in solitary confinement for two years without a trial and was so neglected that he took out his own tooth.

The settlement stems from mediation ordered by the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Dona Ana County was appealing a lower court decision that upheld a $22 million judgment that was awarded last year to former county inmate Stephen R. Slevin."*

A man arrested for a DUI was locked away without a conviction for two years...in solitary confinement. He was severely neglected, and he was forced to take out his own tooth- by the end, he hardly looked like the same man. What kind of justice is this? And should the prison system be reformed? Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, and Ben Mankiewicz (Host, Turner Classic Movies) discuss.

  1. --NYPD boss said stop-and-frisk designed to 'instill fear' in minorities - Senator's testimony--

    RT: April 02, 2013

    A New York State Senator testified in federal court Monday that New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly explained the city’s controversial stop-and-frisk program as a means of instilling fear in young African American and Hispanic men.

    Twenty-two year NYPD veteran and State Senator Eric Adams told the court that in 2010 he traveled to Albany to voice his support to a bill that would forbid the NYPD from keeping a database of information pulled from stop-and-frisks that did not lead to an arrest. That bill would ultimately pass, but Adams testified on Monday that, upon telling Kelly the program disproportionately targeted young black and Latino men, the commissioner was far from concerned.

    The new testimony follows evidence from more than one New York cop indicating that the department has set, officially or unofficially, quotas for stop-and-frisks.

    There has also been recent testimony from those officers that the program specifically targets people of color.

    Kelly “stated that he targeted and focused on that group because he wanted to instill fear in them that every time they left their homes they could be targeted by police,” Adams said.
    He said Kelly justified his reasoning by asking, “How else would we get rid of guns?”

    “I was amazed,” Adams said in court. “I told him that was illegal.”

    Under Kelly and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg the NYPD has stopped an estimated 4.4 million people, most of whom have been in the demographic Kelly allegedly described to Adams.

    The policy allows officers to stop pedestrians on the street if they perceive that person is on the way to committing a crime, is in the process of committing a crime, or leaving the scene of a crime.

    Roughly 94 per cent of the stops result in no charges.[...]
