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

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

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

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

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.

Trump declares Judaism a ‘nationality’. Liberal Jews are appalled.

Filed under: Bigotry, Education, Fascism, Hate, News, Political, Questions, Race — Scottie @ 13:26

Trump declares Judaism a ‘nationality’. Liberal Jews are appalled.

According to Newsweek, Jewish groups have suggested the reported move is actually anti-Semitic, in that casts Jews as a separate nationality to all other Americans, and arguing it could stifle legitimate criticism of Israeli policies.

The Minnesota branch of the Jewish Community Action group described the Times report as “horrifying” on Facebook.

As American Jews, we will resist being defined as anything else. This is an empty, dishonest manipulation – the President wants to distract us from the truly violent white nationalism he has emboldened, and his own blatant antisemitism. We can’t let it work.

The progressive Jewish If Not Now organisation said the reported executive order:

Is not about keeping Jews safe. It’s just more antisemitism. The order defines Judaism as a ‘nationality,’ promoting the classically bigoted idea that American Jews are not, well, American.

Conflating criticism of the Israeli government with antisemitism is actually antisemitic because it implies that all Jews agree with, and are responsible for, Israel’s actions.

There is more at the link above.  I said the other day this was a double edged sword.   It seems the asshole bigots have found a way to have it both ways, to keep college dissent down, and to keep being antisemitic at the same time.   Hugs

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.

Federal Authorities Arrest Doctors Campaigning to Give Migrants Free Flu Vaccinations

“We are licensed medical doctors and practitioners with decades of experience. The Trump administration has left us with no choice but to show up at the San Diego Border Patrol Headquarters and beg to provide life-saving medical care for these children,” the group said. “We have already written to immigration officials and tried to set up meetings with them as well—but they are ignoring us and children’s lives are at risk as a result. We will not stand down.”

For weeks, doctors have been campaigning to be allowed to provide detained migrants with free flu shots. With flu season getting off to an early start this year, they have sought to ramp up calls for the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency, which oversees the Border Patrol, to take action.

In an interview with Newsweek on Tuesday ahead of the day’s protest and subsequent arrests, Dr. Marie DeLuca, an emergency physician from New York City and one of the founders of Doctors for Camp Closure, said physicians felt it was their duty to stop people from “needlessly suffering and dying.”

In the last fiscal year, at least three children, ages 2, 6 and 16, died of influenza while in federal custody, with it recently being revealed that 16-year-old Carlos Gregorio Hernandez Vasquez had been left lying on the floor in a holding cell for hours after falling sick before he was found dead.
