ICE Destroyed Footage Of A Trans Asylum-Seeker Who Died In Custody Despite A Request To Save It

Filed under: Bigotry, Criminal, Fascism, Gender, Hate, LGBTQ, News, Political, Questions, Sex, Transgender news — Scottie @ 09:21

The video of 33-year-old Roxsana Hernández Rodriguez, who died in US custody on May 25, 2018, was requested by an investigative division of ICE as part of a review into her death. In the June 4, 2018, email, an analyst with ICE’s Office of Professional Responsibility requested a number of records related to Hernández’s death, including footage of her time at the Cibola County Correctional Center (CCCC) in Milan, New Mexico, on May 16–17.

“Please archive and retain all facility video surveillance footage,” the analyst asked, with the word “all” underlined.

However, in late August 2018, 95 days after Hernández’s death, ICE officials said in emails previously reported by BuzzFeed News that the footage was “no longer available,” suggesting it was because surveillance video is only kept for about 90 days.

Cops Break Into Innocent Sleeping Woman’s Home, Shoot Her—Now She Faces Life in Prison

Filed under: Criminal, Fascism, Gender, News, Political, Questions — Scottie @ 06:16

This police incompetence and disregard for others safety has got to stop.  Read the article, they helped her ex break into her home while she was sleeping, and she is the one on trial.   The police broke ever rule of common sense and what should be proper judgement and now to avoid their own embarrassment are charging the innocent woman.   This happened in Winter Park, Florida About two hours from me.   Hugs

Cops Break Into Innocent Sleeping Woman’s Home, Shoot Her—Now She Faces Life in Prison

Sapp’s nightmare began in September of 2017 as she slept comfortably in her own bed in her own home. Instead of waking up to her alarm that fateful morning, Sapp would wake up to multiple shadowy figures surrounding her in her bedroom, pulling off her covers, yelling at her, tasering her, and eventually, shooting her.

Sapp is so confident that she did nothing wrong that she went on camera recently with News 6 Orlando to tell her side of the story. It is nothing short of shocking. She says the entire incident began because her disgruntled ex-boyfriend used a police welfare check to deliberately harm her. It worked.

“He used this wellness check as a way to put me in harm’s way,” she said.

Indeed, instead of actually investigating the situation by knocking on the door, calling her, or any other number of non-violent means, cops helped this man — who did not live in the house and could have been anyone — break in to her home and then shoot this woman on his behalf.

Instead of shooting her, one cop deployed his taser. Marcum, apparently scared of his own shadow then did what the other officers in the room never felt necessary: he pulled out his gun and put a bullet into Sapp.

This innocent woman, who had harmed no one, was asleep in her own bedroom, and did nothing wrong, was then shot in the shoulder and arrested.

“With his typical Orwellian brazenness, Trump insists that this agenda should be described as a hawkish anti-Russian policy. Meanwhile he turned over American foreign policy to agents literally being paid by Russia.” – Jonathan Chait

Double Standard

Reminder: Trump gets every advantage, every benefit of patriarchy, and every double standard and is STILL the biggest piece of shit in history.

They will keep going until they get the answer they want or there is no one left

Ivanka and Jared failed their security clearances, multiple times. Imagine a family with a long history of fraud and deception, failing so many security clearances, in any other situation. It’s unreal.

That just shows you how structurally powerful patriarchy and white male privilege are in our society, and how conservatives have no moral code or sense of shame.

The Extraordinary Danger of Being Pregnant and Uninsured in Texas

Filed under: Criminal, Family, Health, News, Political, Questions — Scottie @ 11:34

This is horrifying and incredible in a country called the wealthiest on earth.   Another example showing our healthcare system is broken and we need Medicare For All.    Hugs

https://www.propublica.org/article/the-extraordinary-danger-of-being-pregnant-and-uninsured-in-texas

From 2012 through 2015, at least 382 pregnant women and new mothers died in Texas from causes related to pregnancy and childbirth, according to the most recent data available from the Department of State Health Services; since then, hundreds more have likely perished. While their cases reflect the problems that contribute to maternal mortality across the United States — gross medical errors, deeply entrenched racism, structural deficiencies in how care is delivered — another Texas-size factor often plays a significant role: the state’s vast, and growing, problem with health insurance access.

About one in six Texans — just over 5 million people — had no health insurance last year. That’s almost a sixth of all uninsured Americans, more than the entire population of neighboring Louisiana. After trending lower for several years, the Texas rate has been rising again — to 17.7% in 2018, or about twice the national average.

The numbers for women are even worse. Texas has the highest rate of uninsured women of reproductive age in the country; a third were without health coverage in 2018, according to a DSHS survey. In some counties, mainly along the Mexico border, that estimate approaches 40%.

Brittney Henry’s case shows the toll. A few weeks after delivering her fourth child, the 28-year-old Houston resident suffered a heart attack, a catastrophic complication that can be associated with pregnancy. Henry went home from the hospital with a stent in her left coronary artery and a fistful of prescriptions, all paid for by pregnancy Medicaid. But after two months, those benefits lapsed and her family was left scrambling to get her the medications she needed, her husband said. On a January morning in 2016, when she was about five months postpartum, Henry begged a neighbor in her apartment complex to drive her to the emergency room. She collapsed on the sidewalk and died.

If not for her insurance struggles, her husband, Raphael Martin, asserts, the outcome might have been very different. “No bullshit,” he said, “she’d still be alive.”

US Border Officials Are Issuing Fake Court Notices To Keep Out Immigrants Who Have Won Asylum

Filed under: Bigotry, Criminal, Fascism, News, Political, Questions, Race — Scottie @ 08:58

The hatred stuns me.  These are people who were granted asylum, something very hard and getting harder to do.   The bigots manufactured fake court notices telling them they must go back to Mexico to wait, instead of admitting them to the US as they are required by law.    Hugs

https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/hamedaleaziz/immigrants-asylum-turned-away-us-border

Francisco told the court how he’d fled Cuba after being beaten and shackled by government officials for criticizing the Cuban government as a “dictatorship.” As a Cuban dissident, Francisco dreamed of living in the US, a country he had admired from afar for its democratic system and values.

On Nov. 21, the decision from Tijerina came in: “IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Respondent’s application for asylum pursuant to Section 208 of the Act be GRANTED.”

But what happened next is what immigration advocates and attorneys say is a troubling and apparently new trend of US officials going out of their way, including issuing fake court date notices, in order to keep even those who have been granted asylum out of the country.

With his court order in hand, Francisco traveled four days later to the port of entry — the same place where he had first applied for asylum in July — with his attorney. He gave the 14-page document to a US Customs and Border Protection official and requested he be let in.

Instead, a border official took Francisco aside and gave him a notice for a nonexistent court hearing in January, according to one of his attorneys, Lisa Koop, associate director of legal services at the National Immigrant Justice Center. What’s more, Francisco would also have to wait in Mexico as Homeland Security officials used their allotted 30-day window to decide whether to appeal his case.

 

When a BuzzFeed News reporter called the Department of Justice to confirm the hearing date given to Francisco, the automated phone line said that there was, in fact, no hearing date scheduled.

Francisco, who requested his full name not be used due to his tenuous life in Mexico, is not alone. Koop said that in recent weeks at least three other individuals, all Venezuelan, have also been denied the opportunity to remain in the US after being granted asylum. All were in the Migrant Protection Protocols, the Trump administration policy that keeps asylum-seekers in Mexico as their immigration cases proceed. All three individuals — one an adult man, the other two a mother and son — were granted asylum in Laredo but later taken back to Mexico, according to Koop.

DOJ’s IG report debunked Trump’s FBI bias claims — but found anti-Hillary texts from FBI agent

Filed under: Bigotry, Criminal, Fascism, Gender, News, Political, Questions — Scottie @ 08:44

We were repeatedly reminded about the FBI investigation into Hillary’s emails, yet it never leaked about the investigation into employees of the tRump campaign being involved with Russia.  Comey said he felt he needed to release the letter saying they found more emails and would reopen the investigation because he was afraid the highly partisan favoring tRump NY FBI bureau  would deliberately leak the news to the press.   Hugs

Horowitz did find, however, that numerous FBI agents sent anti-Clinton text messages and expressed a desire to investigate the Clinton Foundation, which was at the center of numerous baseless Trump conspiracy theories during the campaign and after the election.

The report said that investigators reviewed text messages by senior FBI agents “which reflect their support for Trump in the 2016 elections.”

“If you hear talk of a special prosecutor … I will volunteer to work [on] the Clinton Foundation,” one FBI agent wrote to another on Nov. 9, 2016, according to the report.

The agent also wrote that he “was so elated with the election” that it was like “watching a Superbowl comeback.”

The agent told the inspector general’s office that he “fully expected Hillary Clinton to walk away with the election but, as the returns [came] in … it was just energizing to me to see … [because] I didn’t want a criminal to be in the White House.”

The report included a text exchange in which two agents celebrated Trump’s win.

“Sh*t just got real,” one of them wrote. “I saw a lot of scared MFers on … [my way to work] this morning. Start looking for new jobs fellas. Haha.”

The Vatican is using donations for the poor to fight its budget deficit, report says

Filed under: Criminal, Fascism, Greed, News, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 08:13

Crime by a religion, should we be surprised?   Stealing is wrong isn’t it?  These are the moral police right?  Don’t they preach something about 10 rules that say something about this?   Hugs

https://www.cnbc.com/2019/12/11/vatican-uses-donations-for-poor-to-fight-budget-deficit-report-says.html

Key Points
  • As little as 10% of donations by Roman Catholics that are specifically advertised as helping the poor and suffering actually go toward charitable work, The Wall Street Journal reports.
  • About two-thirds of the rest of the $55 million in annual donations for Pope Francis’ charitable appeal, known as Peter’s Pence, is used to fill the Vatican’s administrative budget deficit, the report says.
  • The Holy See’s deficit in 2018 doubled to more than $76 million on a budget of around $333 million.

According to the collection’s website, it is “A Day for the Works of Charity.”

“These collections and donations by the individual faithful or entire local churches raise the awareness that all the baptized are called to materially sustain the work of evangelization and at the same time to help the poor in whatever way is possible,” the site says.
