    Medeni Duran wrote that his imprisoned brother Metin "cannot walk, speak, or eat and does not recognize anyone anymore. He can only breathe." Mistreatment and even torture of journalists and media employees, along with arbitrary arrests, are getting alarmingly commonplace in Turkey. At least 183 journalists and media workers in Turkey in are being held, either in pretrial detention or serving a prison sentence, according to the Platform for Independent Journalism. Dissident journalists and writers in Turkey increasingly face government threats and arbitrary arrests for their work and opinions, but for Metin Duran, the punishments have been even more...

    Facebook LEBANON, Ohio - A nonprofit in Lebanon is pulling out of its program for inmates at the Warren Correctional Institution. The program allowed some inmates to interact with dogs. But one canine, a German shepherd named Evie, was recently found dead in the prison. Katherine Hartung had been fostering Evie through Joseph's Legacy. Evie had a tough life, "a broken hip, having surgery. Living on the streets... She was a part of our family," said Hartung. --snip-- She says the dog was a Houdini of sorts, jumping over fences and even unlocking doors. So she handed her over to...

    NEW HAVEN — Ending modern day slavery in prisons in the United States was one of the demands made at a rally Saturday in New Haven where about 70 people gathered for speeches and a march in support of a nationwide prison strike for reforms, including more than below minimum wage pay and rehabilitation services. “No justice, no peace,” the crowd chanted in unison, some holding signs, led by Jamarr Jabari of the Party for Socialism and Liberation, New Haven. “It’s time for us to start treating people as human beings, not just for profit,” he said. “We’re fighting for...

    Queens, New York – On July 9, 2018, two years to the day after abortionist Robert Rho killed Jaime Lee Morales during a horrifically botched abortion, Rho surrendered into the custody of the Downstate Correctional Facility, a maximum security state prison in Fishkill, New York. Morales died on July 9, 2016, after Rho conducted a fatal second-trimester abortion on her at his now-shuttered Liberty Women’s Health Care in Flushing. During the abortion, which he attempted in one day instead of the recommended two days, he inflicted serious internal injuries, including a lacerated cervix, perforated uterus and nicked uterine artery. After...

    Ten years ago, Vitaly Mokrushin became the pastor of a Mennonite church in the town of Sol-Iletsk, in Russia’s Orenburg region, leading a small congregation of 20-25 people. The 42-year-old former locomotive mechanic found God in 1996. In the mid-2000s, he regularly visited the “Black Dolphin” prison colony. He visited prisoners on a weekly basis for several years, holding services, singing religious hymns, reading sermons, and using the prison’s PA system to communicate with inmates who weren’t allowed to gather in the same room. Roman Lunkin, a senior researcher at the Russian Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Philosophy, told Meduza...

    Daily Mail ^ | 8/19/18 | Keith Griffith
    Prison inmates across the country are preparing to go on strike by refusing to eat or work, as a way to protest what they call 'prison slavery' and poor conditions. Though the extent of the planned strike is not known, prisoners in at least 17 states say they will be taking part in coordinated action, which will begin on Tuesday and last through September 9. Organizers say the strike is partly in response to the April riot in South Carolina's Lee Correctional Institution, where seven inmates were killed by other prisoners when gang tensions boiled over. The masterminds of the...

    Special Counsel Robert Mueller recommended in a court filing on Friday that a judge sentence former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos to up to six months in prison for lying to federal agents investigating whether Russia interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Papadopoulos pleaded guilty in October to lying to FBI agents and is scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 7. According to Mueller’s sentencing memorandum to the judge, Papadopoulos lied about his contacts with people who claimed to have ties to top Russian officials, including his meeting with a professor who said Russia had “dirt” on Democratic presidential...

    Prison reform has normally been an issue embraced by Democrats, not Republicans. But, perhaps, like so many other things in the Trump administration, this, too, is about to change. Last Thursday, President Trump held a roundtable discussion at his Bedminster, New Jersey, property, five governors were in attendance. According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons, 37.8 percent of prison inmates in the U.S. are black, 58.3 percent white, 2.3 percent Native American and 1.6 percent Asian. Yet, blacks are arrested more, charged more, sentenced more harshly and confined to prison longer, even for minor infractions. In Georgia, according to Department...

    Kanye West might have worried a little bit about wife Kim Kardashian West when she visited President Donald Trump. The “Fade” rapper, 41, shared his thoughts on the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star’s visit to the White House in May during a wide-ranging interview with Jimmy Kimmel on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday night in which the musician spoke about everything from his love of Trump, porn and his Bipolar diagnosis. When Kimmel, 50, asked West how he felt about the reality star meeting Trump on behalf of a 62-year-old great-grandmother who was incarcerated for 22 years, the father...

    Baltimore Rev. Jamal Bryant had strong words for the influential inner-city pastors who met with President Donald Trump on Thursday for a meeting about prison reform, job growth and other issues affecting inner cities. “This is a stain on the body of Christ. This is a stain on our community,” the pastor said in a 25-minute Periscope video Thursday night. “I need to know how all of ya’ll were smiling at that table while the whole world frowns at what this represents and what it looks like. The blood is dripping off your hands.” The pastors have been heavily criticized...

    It is rare these days in Washington to see bipartisan support for anything, let alone for a major issue with far reaching implications for the nation. This is why the bipartisan passage in the House, 360-59, of the First Step Act to reform our federal prisons is such big news. The 360 "yes" votes included 134 Democrats. The bill focuses on improving the management of our existing federal prison population and the abysmal statistics regarding recidivism -- the likelihood that an ex-con will wind up back in prison. Data point to 68 percent of those released within three years, and...

    A member of the House Committee on the Judiciary said during a hearing Thursday that a government watchdog found that nearly all of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails were sent to a foreign entity and that the FBI didn’t follow-up on that finding. The Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) found an “anomaly on Hillary Clinton’s emails going through their private server, and when they had done the forensic analysis, they found that her emails, every single one except four, over 30,000, were going to an address that was not on the distribution list,” Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of...
  • Alabama Moves to Limit Sheriffs From Pocketing Jail Food Money

    Alabama’s governor has begun to cut off a gravy train for the state’s sheriffs: the unspent money for prisoners’ meals that the sheriffs have long been allowed to keep for themselves. The practice, born of a bickered-over ambiguity in a state law, has let sheriffs pocket tax dollars that over the decades almost certainly ran into the millions. To curtail the practice, Gov. Kay Ivey ordered in a memorandum to the state comptroller that payments of certain funds related to jail food “no longer be made to the sheriffs personally.” Instead, the governor wrote, the money must be paid to...

    If Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein does not comply with the request of two Republican lawmakers to release documents about why special counsel Robert Mueller began investigating alleged Russian collusion in the 2016 presidential election, he could be held in contempt, according to Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz. “There has never been a more important time in our history for checks and balances to be operating, whether it’s regarding President Trump’s immigration policies, where we’re seeing checks and balances in play and whether it be the Mueller investigation,” Dershowitz said during an interview with FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo on Friday.
