December 17, 2010 1 comment

DeathAndTaxesMag –  Manning has spent the last five months detained at the U.S. Marine brig in Quantico, Virginia—before that he spent two months in a military jail in Kuwait, all the while facing conditions that constitute cruel and inhumane treatment and even torture. Manning was charged with the unauthorized use and disclosure of U.S. classified information.

In an article for Salon, Glenn Greenwald reports that interviews with several sources familiar with the conditions of Manning’s detention, including Lt. Brian Villiard, a Quantico brig Officer, confirmed that the accused leaker is subject to detention conditions likely to create long-term psychological injuries. Continue Reading…

The intelligence analyst has been detained by the U.S military since May of 2010 and has spent the last 5 months at the U.S Marine Corps Brig in Quantico, Virginia.

He has been denied the right to exercise, held in solitary confinement for 23 hours of the day, and his mental and physical health have been deteriorating because of this abuse.

December 7, 2010 Leave a comment

CNN – WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange handed himself over to police Tuesday, promptly appeared in court where he was denied bail, and left for jail in a police van.

Julian Assange, the founder of the infamous Wikileaks website, has been arrested after surrendering to London police.

He was denied bail because he is an obvious flight risk. England will attempt to extradite him to Sweden to face rape charges.

The political prisoner is accused of raping two women over a year ago. Officially, he has been charged with two counts of sexual molestation, one count of rape, and one count of sexual coercion.

According to the San Fransisco Chronicle,  Assange had consensual sex with 2 ‘activist’ women who were attracted to him because of his rebel, ‘activist’ ways. The second women he slept with says the condom broke during sex and Assange didn’t stop. The first women says they had sex without a condom.

The arrest comes on the heels of a new, damaging Wikileaks cable that was released yesterday. The “Clinton cable” release details places around the world that are important to the National Security of the United States.

Racist White Kids In New Mexico Brand & Shave The Swastika Symbol On A Native American

November 29, 2010 1 comment

HuffingtonPost – Three friends had just finished their shifts at a McDonald’s when prosecutors say they carried out a gruesome attack on a customer: They allegedly shaped a coat hanger into a swastika, placed it on a heated stove and branded the symbol on the arm of the mentally disabled Navajo man

Authorities say they then shaved a swastika on the back of the 22-year-old victim’s head and used markers to scrawl messages and images on his body, including “KKK,” `’White Power,” a pentagram and a graphic image of a penis. Continue Reading…

The Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act will give prosecutors the authority to aggressive  prosecute a hate crime occurring in Farmington, New Mexico.

The Swastika Shaved onto his head

Three young McDonald’s employees in Farmington branded a swastika on the arm of a mentally disabled Native American man.

The kids also shaved a swastika symbol on the back of a 22-year old Navajo man’s head and used markers to draw other hateful symbols on the man’s body.

The 3 kids are white and will be the first in the nation charged under the new Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act enacted in 2009. The act makes it easier to prosecute hate crimes and increases punishment for hate crimes.

The racist kids are facing up to 10 years in prison and could be sentenced to life if kidnapping charges are proved.

This hateful incident will greatly hamper peaceful talks between the Navajo Nation and Farmington leaders who just signed a race-relations agreement this month.

HamptonRoads Pilot News – When Samuel Gravely Jr. was born in segregated Richmond 88 years ago, he never could have imagined a career as a U.S. naval officer – not to mention becoming the first black officer to command a warship and, eventually, the service’s first black admiral.

Gravely died in 2004, but this month marks yet another first: The first warship named for a black admiral was commissioned over the weekend. On Wednesday, the brand-new destroyer pulled into Norfolk, its new homeport. Continue reading…

 

Samuel Gravely Jr. is considered a Vice Admiral. He was a pioneer for African-Americans in the Navy.

The brand new $1 Billion dollar Gravely Destroyer has been named after the African-American legend.

The ship’s motto “First to Conquer” is a reference to Samuel Gravely paving the way for blacks in the Navy.

He was the first black to be commissioned as an officer, first black to serve aboard a fighting ship as an officer, first black to command a Navy ship, first black fleet commander, and first black to become a flag officer.
