Zemmour continue sa croisade contre les étrangers et les personnes racisées en #prison. Si on veut jouer au con, rappelons que la variable sociologique la plus discriminante en prison, c’est le genre : + de 96% d’hommes. Alors on fait quoi, Éric ? 1/10
On ne présente que des femmes à la présidentielle ? Non parce qu’en plus vos petits copains de droite ont une fâcheuse tendance à se prendre des condamnations en ce moment. Et on a déjà un ancien président condamné, donc le risque n’est pas nul. 2/10
C’est facile de sortir des fausses évidences en 2 phrases sur les plateaux TV sur des mécanismes répressifs complexes. Depuis l’invention de la prison pénale, on a toujours enfermé en grande majorité les plus précaires, dont les personnes ayant migré récemment font partie. 3/10

A few more observations on sex offenders, a topic that is very much in the public eye at the moment. Yesterday I watched #FourLives. Stephen Merchant was excellent as Port, a very limited and mediocre man, yet one who still ran rings around the ineptitude of the authorities.
Making society safer and preventing victims not only includes the need for resources, but also requires a comprehensive understanding of accurate offense patterns and risk. Who victims are, how offenders act. A great deal is now digital, or has links to.
Offenders will take steps to cover their tracks, they will not willingly face justice, they will lie, manipulate, mislead. What wasn't shown in #FourLives is Port used friends abroad of one victim to stay informed about how police were investigation was progressing.

Well said Jamie. It's because I have been around and worked with some of the most manipulative, preditory male sex offenders this country has to offer that I know the harm well intentioned progressive idealism can do. It needs to stop.
Would some male sex offenders game the system? I have literally seen how sex offenders operate. Some will take your progressive idealism and naive nature and exploit it, ruthlessly. Anyone remember the subtle video that was used in #prison anti-corruption training? The letter?
A new prison officer is kind enough to post the letter outside for 'nice guy' Dave off the wing. The letter, a card to Dave's daughter. His victim, on her Birthday. Huge trauma and hurt. The officers job, over. Being kind, I d say some progressives here are the same level naive.

أطلق كتاب الناشط السياسي المصري #علاء_عبد_الفتاح أمس الثلاثاء وبغياب علاء، في مكتبة برزخ في الحمرا. الكتاب المعنون «لم تُهزَموا بعد»- وهي عبارة كتبها علاء في العام 2017 من داخل سجن طرّة المصري، صدر أواخر الشهر الفائت وفيه مجموعة من مقالات علاء التي كتبها منذ #ثورة_يناير 2011.
./1
وقد أبدى القيّمون على النشاط، وهم من أصدقاء علاء، قلقهم على وضعه الجسديّ والنفسيّ بسبب ظروف السجن، لا سيّما وأنّه «حُرِم من حقّ الحصول على الكتب، ومعرفة الوقت، وممارسة النشاط الجسدي».
./2
يُذكَر أنّ المحكمة المصرية قد أدرجت علاء، في 18 تشرين الثاني، على قوائم الإرهابيّين لمدّة خمس سنوات، رافضةً الطعن الذي كان قد تقدّم به. وقد قضى علاء حتّى اليوم أكثر من سبع سنوات في سجون عبد الفتاح #السيسي بتهمٍ ملفّقة.

For #WorldMentalHealthDay I would like to draw attention to the crisis of incarceration of those with serious mental illnesses. More than 1/4 of men and well over half of women in #prison are diagnosed with some form of mental illness. This represents a huge societal failure. /1
Decades ago, people with #mentalillness whose families couldn't afford adequate treatment were warehoused in institutions in terrible conditions. Litigation forced them to close. They were supposed to be replaced with community based resources so people could get help at home. /2
As is typical in the US, these vital resources never materialized and many thousands of people with serious mental health needs were left with nowhere to turn. Over time, their #mentalillness was criminalized, and prisons became their new warehouses. nami.org/NAMI/media/NAM… /3

**ACTION ITEM BELOW**
On Monday, two Good Shepherd Collective members headed to #Ofer #military court & #prison to stand in #solidarity with Sami Huraini of Youth Of Sumud / شباب صمود and his family on the day of his trial.
Although we were unable to join Sami in the #courtroom, we sat with his family and dozens of other #Palestinians awaiting their family members, imprisoned and/or awaiting #prosecution in the #military #court system.
In Sami’s case, his trial was postponed, granting momentary relief despite a continuation of the bail conditions which prevent him from participating in #protests—essentially, keeping him from exercising his most basic right to #free speech and #resistance to #oppression.

Suite à la série de threads de @SirYesS25095892, voici notre proposition de #thread sur les #SPIP. Image
Les #SPIP ont été créés par un décret en 1999 en fusionnant 2 services auparavant distincts :
- les CPAL - Comité de Probation et d’assistance aux libérés, services de milieu ouvert (MO),
- les Services socio-éducatifs des établissements pénitentiaires, en milieu fermé ( MF) .
Une direction unique est alors créée : c'est le directeur départemental du SPIP, un "pilote".
Auparavant, les collègues des CPAL étaient sous l'autorité du juge d'application des peines et les travailleurs sociaux sous celle des directeurs d'établissement
Impensable aujourd'hui!

#Canada #Langford #Vancouver #Prison

After her arrest and several days in prison, a woman sent the Canadian police a thank you card with a four and a half star rating. Image
Her special thanks go to the "four prison guards who do a heavy job and are often not sufficiently appreciated by the people entrusted to them," said the card that the local police published on Twitter.
She was nervous during her jail stay in the city of Langford on Vancouver Island, but she appreciated "how helpful and friendly everyone was," added the woman. The police did not reveal why she was arrested for privacy reasons. The police were happy about the unusual card.

Infinite Spiders, playwright, @johnsteppling

"If you go to, say, Amazon and under books type in #Philosophy, or Philosophy/Truth…you will get a litany of books with the phrase “post #truth” in the title. It is, apparently, a #posttruth world now."

john-steppling.com/2020/12/infini…
"This is related to what I experience as absent in daily life. Post truth is post experience in some sense. As Cory Morningstar put it in our podcast (#25); 'we are being reprogrammed'."

[#SocialEngineerring - a prerequisite for transition to #4IR]
"Of course the more profound elements of the #reprogramming are to be found in the #digital revolution. There is no way to overemphasize the impact of the internet & its various platforms....

Societies of the west are increasingly demoralized...."

Quand tu acceptes un dossier d’aménagement de peine à l’aide juridictionnelle, alors que ton client est en #prison : 5 UV, soit selon l’Etat, 2h30 sur le dossier 🤔
À 32 euros l’UV, on demande à l’#avocat de travailler un projet d’aménagement de peine avec un client incarcéré pour 160 euros (bon moins les charges, hein)
C’est quoi le travail d’avocat à l’aménagement de peine, c’est accompagner vers la sortie une personne qui est en détention depuis un peu, beaucoup, trop longtemps...

I feel the real issues are not being covered in our @GREATBritain @LawDog323 @TheLawMap @TheLawyermag .

What is the point of #RuleofLawisback when the same #CorruptAndComplicitGOP ignored by the very law makers ignored by @MHewittNPCC deputy #commissioner of @PoliceChiefs
who only last year is telling us how fantastic @cpsuk @IOPC_Help are.



Yet in the next breath he has treated this family worse than I have ever witnessed from a high ranking officer who knows of what #bernardhoganhowe and @UKParliament @wabbey are
still getting away with what we know is still continuing because @NSPCC @PeterWanless @MaggieOliverUK and the @InquiryCSA was set up to ignore every single real #victims helped by just about every single so called #FightingEvilByGroupWatch such as @voicing_csa @JU5TLAW

Big #Covid19 outbreak at #MtPleasant #stateprison. 170+ inmates tested positive in sweep. Bumped #HenryCounty #Covid rate form 5% to 16.4%. But no impact on in-school learning at local schools thanks to #CovidKim's ruling that prison staff& families don't get covid. #iapolitics
What's #CovidKim's rationale for not including #prison & #packingplant #Covid19 cases in school opening calcs? Cuz active tracking would quickly identify cases & quarantine cases from the sites. So why didn't #IaGov establish the program? Needed 5K trackers. Now? 300. #IaPolitics
So what's in store for poor citizens of #HenryCounty (pop 20K)? Prison is 7% of population. 340 staff + 1000+ total prisoners. Assuming that half the staff are or 2B infected it's really big & no viable tracker system. Sorry. #SOL! #IaPolitics #CovidKim

"...the documents describe a long pattern of abuse, neglect and mismanagement of detainees at #Immigration Centers of America (ICA) #Farmville — a facility where almost everyone has #coronavirus."

ICA Farmville already has a reputation for overcrowding and poor sanitation. Last year the private #ICE #prison was hit with an outbreak of mumps, a classic disease of overcrowding and poor sanitation.

Black LA man, FW Bryant, was convicted for a 1997 "attempted simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling" & sentenced to no parole b/c of prior petty theft convictions. 5 white men on LA Supreme Court voted vs reviewing the sentence. #BlackLivesMatter nbcnews.com/news/us-news/h…
#Louisiana taxpayers have spent $518,667 to punish Bryant for attempting to steal a pair of clippers, Chief Justice Bernette Johnson, the only black justice, notes & compares the sentence to post-Civil War laws that aimed to "re-enslave African Americans."
#Prison activists/#reporters: I couldn't find Bryant in LA's prisoner locator. Says "high-profile" people aren't included. Wanna bet he's working for free in the fields at #Angola Plantation-LA State Pen (or has in the past)? @JeffreyGoldberg

Why the negative reporting @BBCNews about MoJ providing accommodation for people who are #homeless on release from prison? Would you prefer that they were released to live in the streets? Increase the spread of #COVID__19? Do people not deserve 1/3
basic human rights after they have served their sentence? What about supporting #rehabilitation and enabling people to contribute to society? How many people in prison are there because of what society has inflicted on them #ACE (adverse childhood experiences) abuse, neglect? 2/3
I celebrate the decision to make sure people have accommodation on release from #prison. It’s probably saved lives. No-one should through choice be released to the streets, ever. As a ‘developed’ society surely that’s what we all want? #homelessness #homelesshealth 3/3

Today's episode of "What in the Caucasity?" should be the LAST. In 1795, an anthropologist sorting human skulls into groups liked a female skull from the Caucasus Mts best & reasoned that since Europeans were the best-looking people, all Europeans must be from the Caucasus Mts.
"Caucasian" isn't simply a racial term, it's a #racist term, selected in 1795 solely because the anthropologist who published the 1st classification of humans into biological "races" thought Europeans were the world's best-looking people.
latimes.com/opinion/story/…
"Caucasian" is widely used in medical research as a synonym for "white." C'mon #MedicalTwitter: you can fix this. discovermagazine.com/mind/stop-usin…
