A tiny subset of terrible things that have happened at #Rikers Island #Jail in #NewYorkCity: a primer for upper middle class white people. If you don't know these stories, you are not doing your job as a human.
I'm tweeting about #jails and #bail because (real, substantive) #bailreform is good for society and we need more of it. And I'm tweeting for upper middle class white people because we have a lot of power/positionality, and yet tend to be least knowledgeable about the issues.
Upper middle class white people: I beg you, I plead with you, to educate yourself on these critical criminal justice topics which affect minoritized people most directly, and yet which also affect ALL of society.

Excise Policy case: Delhi's Rouse Avenue Court to shortly pronounce its orders on the bail plea of Manish Sisodia in the money laundering case.

The order will be pronounced at 4pm by Special CBI judge MK Nagpal.

#ManishSisodia #RouseAvenueCourt #Bail #ED #MoneyLaundering Image
Sisodia has been behind bars since Feb 26 when he was arrested by the CBI.

He was subsequently arrested by the ED on allegations of money laundering.

On March 31, Sisodia's bail plea in the CBI case was rejected.
It is ED's case that Sisodia and other AAP leaders tweaked the excise policy to benefit certain traders. These traders in turn paid kickbacks to the AAP leader.

However, Sisodia's counsel have argued that the agencies have not been able to trace any money to him.

Two days before the Prime Minister's announcement imposing the sudden nationwide Covid-19 lockdown in March 2020, Bilal Chero* stepped out of prison for the first time in eleven years. He had been arrested in 2009 on what is commonly called in Jharkhand as 'Maobadi charges'.
Before his arrest he was just another villager subsisting by farming on his patch of land in a forested region in West Singhbhum, an area where the "party waale" [CPI (Maoist)] would come and go. "They were armed. If we didn't give them food and water, they'd kill us, you know?"
Suddenly he was informed that there was a "Naxali" case against him, and he was arrested on 22 charges including the #UAPA and Section 17 of the Criminal Law Amendment Act (association w a banned party). Meanwhile his wife & brother were killed in a security sweep of the region.
