47 Senators: Truth-tellers about Trucebreakers


When 47 GOP senators wrote a letter to Iran warning about their intention to dishonor any nuclear agreement that President Obama may make with Iran, the world was outraged. A spokesman from Iran pointed out that it would be breaking international law for America to dishonor the agreement. However, as any Native American and African American can attest, truce breaking is usual and ordinary in the United States. This is especially true regarding people with mental disabilities. Since it is customary to dishonor agreements made with Americans, can Iran or any other country expect anything more?

United States officials have signed contracts with the American people and the United Nations that regard the rights of U.S. citizens. Failing to honor these contracts erodes America's ability to influence other countries, just as the Vice President said, especially in the area of human rights. Refusal to honor the agreements signed in years past negatively impacts the United States' credibility and global leadership and makes suspect any and all future agreements. Blaring failures exist regarding the U.S. Constitution, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Civil Rights of Institutionalized Persons Act (CRIPA), the Civil Rights Act, the Convention Against Torture, and Executive Order 13107, implementing human rights treaties. 

The video at YouTube https://youtu.be/mTnBUYoJtk4 proves that prison investors moonlighting as public officials, in direct conflicts of interest, censor Mary Neal's advocacy to replace incarceration with hospitalization for persons with serious mental illness. That censorship violates all of the documents named above. Mentally ill Americans, including U.S. veterans, are continually killed during arrest attempts and as inmates in jails and prisons because none of the covenants that would protect them are being honored. The video embedded below regards censorship surrounding U.S. congressional bill H.R.619. It proves that Neal's freedom of press was violated to prevent Americans from knowing about the mental health care bill that would have resumed Medicaid insurance for psychiatric inpatients:


Ignoring the secret arrest and wrongful death of Larry Neal also violates all laws and conventions intended to protect the rights of Americans who are poor, black, or mentally and physically disabled, such as this man who was held under secret incarceration for 18 days and murdered on August 1, 2003, by yet undisclosed means. Government kidnappings and murders were illegal in 2003. Although extrajudicial assassinations have been legalized in America now, such murders are supposedly reserved for terrorists and cannot legally be used to exterminate the nation's sick citizens like Nazi Germany did.

It seems ridiculous to criticize truth-tellers like the 47 senators who revealed plans to break covenant with Iran even before any nuclear agreement is reached. Since truce-breaking is usual and ordinary when it comes to the government's dealings with its own people, how can people in any other nation expect something different?

The Word warns in 2 Timothy 3:1-5 what manner of leaders will reign in the Last Days:



This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, TRUCEBREAKERS, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

Blacks and Poor Whites: The Slave Pool


ELKHART, Ind. — A teen who broke into a home with a group of friends is now being held responsible for the murder of his friend who was killed by the homeowner with a gun. FOX News reports that a felony murder law in Indiana mandates individuals who commit a felony that ends in death are charged with the murder, even if they were the victims, rather than the agents, of the killing. Blake Layman and four friends broke into a neighbor’s home when they believed it was empty on Oct. 3, 2012. They were surprised when the homeowner came out of his room with a gun, and Danzele Johnson, 21, was shot and killed. Layman was shot in the leg. Neither Layman nor his friends were armed at the time of the attempted burglary.


POOR WHITES ARE TREATED LIKE BLACKS BY THE LEGAL SYSTEM. Only a poor white boy or a black one would be treated this way - Blake Layman was charged with a killing that the homeowner did when he and friends tried to do an unarmed burglary. Ethan Couch, the son of a successful businessman, drove drunk and caused a crash, killing four people and injuring two. He was sentenced to a lock-down residential treatment facility where he was supposedly treated for "affluenza." State District Judge Jean Boyd decided the Texas teenager would serve no jail time, and he got probation. Couch was treated like a poor 'lil rich kid who naturally lacked discipline. Layman killed NOBODY and was sentenced for murder. Working class and poor whites and blacks should join forces. The legal system already lumped us together in its "slave pool."

Visits Denied to Starving Prisoners in USA

Mentally ill people who are warehoused in America's jails and prisons routinely starve to death. James Kenneth Embry, 57, starved to death in Kentucky State Prison. Carlos Umana, 20, starved to death in a privately-owned Utah Jail. Umana's mother was prevented from visiting her son during his torturous incarceration. This is now happening to Nikko Albanese in a Florida prison. Please read the 21 paragraphs below and contact Heather Chapman if you can help. Do not allow this abuse to repeat.


1. Heather Chapman said, "My 5 foot, 11 inch son has gone from his normal 160-pound weight to a skeletal 120 pounds after enduring solitary confinement for two years, where he remains today. My son seems to be starving to death in the Florida prison system. He looks like the Holocaust victims in Hitler's concentration camps. Please help us. Please save my son."

2. I would like you to meet my son, Nikko Albanese. Before the mental health crisis that led to his arrest, Nikko was a bright, loving, dependable, compassionate and quiet young man. He enjoyed slot car racing, listening to music, and being with his friends. He is an adoring older brother to two younger half-siblings. Nicole and Jackie look up to Nikko, and we all miss him very much. But to the State of Florida Department of Corrections, Nikko is known as DC Number B11083 and is currently housed in special confinement unit at the Union Correctional Institute in Raiford, Florida. My son is currently serving two concurrent sentences for robbery with a gun and possession of a gun. Nikko was sentenced at the age of 19, and his earliest release date is November 11, 1021, at which time he will be 28 years old.


3. Nikko was diagnosed with early onset bipolar disorder at the age of 10. At age 11, he started receiving social security disability. The State of Florida classified Nikko as disabled because of the bipolar disorder. He has been medicated for bipolar since the age of 10. His bipolar disorder medication completely contained his condition. Nikko may have bipolar disorder and take medication, but other than that he's just an average kid. Most family friends were not even aware Nikko had bipolar disorder or even took medication. The proper medication works well for Nikko. It evens out the chemicals within his brain. As long as Nikko’s was taking his medication, things were fine.

4. When Nikko turned 18, the health insurance and Social Security Disability stopped. According to the law, Social Security considered Nikko to be an adult. I was told that when disabled children like Nikko turn 18, they have to reapply for Social Security Disability as adults. I guess I should have known this, but Nikko has been on his health insurance and Social Security for so long that I just assumed it would continue. As I was gathering records and filling out all the necessary paperwork, Nikko did not have any medical insurance to pay for his medication, doctors or therapy. Once I completed all of the necessary documents and submitted the information from his doctors, I was told by Social Security that I am NOT allowed to fill out and submit the paperwork for Nikko. Rather, he must to do it himself. By this point Nikko had been off his medication and out of therapy for nearly a year, and his condition went from bad to worse. The discontinuation of Nikko's psychiatric treatment caused the mental health crisis that resulted in Nikko's crime.

5. Nikko's history of mental illness is very well documented, and the Sentencing Court was made fully aware of my sons’ history of psychiatric hospitalizations, past treatments, history of medications, and the need to receive the properly prescribed medications for his continued treatment behind bars. The Court received copies of all his medical documents prior to his sentencing. In fact, the Court ordered that Nikko be examined by a Court appointed forensic psychiatrist. 

6. Dr. Crosby was selected to evaluate Nikko. Over the period of several weeks he met with my son and did an extensive evaluation in which he concurred with the diagnosis as stated in the mental health documents the Court received earlier. Most importantly Dr. Crosby told the Court that Nikko was in “a severe bipolar crisis that required immediate medical attention.” I was told that the county facility and ultimately the state department of corrections would address his medical and mental health needs.

7. For some reason, all of Nikko’s medical and psychiatric records were sealed by the Court (including the court-ordered evaluation). When Nikko was transported to state custody, these crucial records did not go with him. Shortly after Nikko arrived at the state prison, he was placed in solitary confinement. Nikko wrote to me and told me that he continually filled out medial request forms to receive medical and psychiatric treatment, but the prison administrators never responded.

8. Over the next two years, Nikko continually received disciplinary reports and sanctions. The ultimate result of the numerous sanctions was the suspension of all visitation privileges, and he could receive no telephone calls or packages. Nikko spent an excessive amount of time in solitary confinement. He was subjected to an unwarranted use of brutal force, restraints (including electronic) and chemical agents to “manage” my son, when in fact he was merely crying out for help. Nikko needed someone to recognize that he has mental health issues that were being ignored.

9. In February 2014, my son was found in his solitary confinement cell in a catatonic state. He was immediately taken to medical. For a human being to become catatonic it is a very long and painful process. It should also be noted that this was the first time in his two-years of being in state custody that he received any form of medical/psychiatric attention for his previously diagnosed conditions. Nikko was then housed on the medical unit for 7 to 8 months and ultimately received a diagnosis of schizophrenia by the facility mental health team. He was eventually returned to solitary confinement for an alleged series of incidents that occurred while he was in a purportedly catatonic state at Charlotte Prison in Punta Gorta, Florida. 

10. On September 19, 2014, I received a call from Corrections officials saying that they were moving my son to “a closed management prison": Union Correctional Institution, where he is currently housed. I requested and have received copies of all of my sons’ medical and mental health records since he was placed in State custody as well as copies of his disciplinary records.

11. To this day, Nikko is still in a medical unit that the Florida State Department of Corrections refers to as a “TCU Unit.” Whatever they want to call it, it is still solitary confinement. They just call it a different name. Whenever an inmate on this unit is removed from his cell for whatever reasons, including a shower, he is handcuffed and shackled. It’s possible that Nikko may spend the remainder of his time in prison in a TCU unit. 

12. Throughout his childhood, Nikko was successfully treated for bipolar disorder. Nikko was damaged by not receiving medical care for over two years and is presently diagnosed as being schizophrenic. Inmates in the TCU units are not allowed to receive any packages, be it holiday packages, sneakers or clothes. Because of Nikko's declining condition and his fear of words and pictures contained in letters, books or magazines, he has absolutely no communication.

13. The sentencing court misled me. I was told by the sentencing court that my son would receive immediate medical and mental health care and that the state facility would be made aware of his condition. Why was it that Nikko did not receive any care until two years after arriving at a state facility? Why did Florida wait until he had deteriorated to a catatonic state before treating his mental illness? How could any human being allow this to happen to another human being?

14. My anxiety about Nikko has grown as I continually read and see videos about the deaths and mistreatment of inmates in Florida who are being held or were interned at some of the same correctional facilities as my son. I worry because my son is not in a position to protect himself against violent assaults. Use of excessive force is unacceptable, but corrections officers are seldom censured. There is no need for excessive force, especially for someone who is catatonic like my son was. 

15. Someone needs to be held accountable for such violent and brutal behavior that the State of Florida's correctional staff has used on mentally ill inmates. It scares me, because no one is being held accountable for the brutal assaults, the mistreatment or inmates' deaths - even when such deaths are ruled "homicide". As I read about the torture and wrongful deaths that happen to Florida prisoners in the newspaper and see films about abuses on television, I wonder how many other cases of brutality do we not hear about. The new Secretary of Corrections has placed a “gag order” on those who were going public about what goes on behind those steel doors, closed gates, locked and secure fences.

16. After two years of being denied all contact, I was allowed one phone call with Nikko on January 5, 2015. My sister had called the warden at Union Correctional Institution. In exchange for my phone call, she had to promise that she would get me to stop my public outcry for help. She had to promise that I would not go to the press or others if I were allowed just one phone call with my son. It was during this phone call that I realized my son didn't remember me. He has trouble with long term and short term memory. His speech is delayed. Nikko is deteriorating to the point where he cannot read or write letters. He cannot have books of any kind in his cell; apparently, the words and pictures in books disturb him greatly. 

17. I realized during this precious phone call that my son is deteriorating rapidly. The medical records that I have obtained from the prison clearly state that Nikko is deteriorating. The only connection I have with my son right now is through the prison doctor, Dr. Biskey. The doctor told me that Nikko has not come out of his cell in weeks, maybe months. It is evident that my son is slipping out of reality, out of society and into a kind of protective shell. I am afraid that he will continue to decline until it will be so bad that no one will be able to reach him. 

18. Nikko has been in solitary confinement for over two years now. Effects of being in long-term solitary confinement can mimic the symptoms of schizophrenia. Because of the long-term solitary confinement, I question whether Nikko truly does have schizophrenia or if could this be a misdiagnosis. The bottom line is that my son is not being treated for any of his pre-existing conditions. He is being treated only for the “newly” diagnosed schizophrenia. Nikko was doing well when he was treated for bipolar disorder as a teenager. If only I had not been prevented from applying for Nikko's medical insurance and social security when he reached age 18, none of this might have happened.

19. Nikko has been visited by two separate organizations in Florida who advocate on behalf of people with disabilities, both of which have declined to help. Why would these “trained professionals” ask Nikko specifically about alleged abuse, neglect, inadequate medical care, and deterioration? Why would they ask Nikko these questions right in front closed circuit cameras and audio recording equipment, with armed prison guards within earshot? My son is in survival mode right now, knowing that if he answered them truthfully he would be in danger. Nikko probably is already in danger simply because these people went to see him. Why would anyone trust Nikko's word anyway? Nikko is an inmate. He committed a crime, and as such, society and courts of law views him as untrustworthy. His word means nothing. I'm sorry but that is the reality of the situation. What does it matter what my son says? 

20. The proof is documented in the medical records, the disciplinary records and in the current physical and mental state my son is in, the majority of which is probably attributable to the two years of solitary confinement he has endured. ​I now have NO contact with Nikko. The prison suspended all visitation privileges until late this summer. Who is going to be my eyes and ears? Who is going to look out for my son? Who has his back - certainly not the State of Florida Department of Corrections or the private company that provides inmates with medical and mental health care.

21. Heather Chapman said, "My 5 foot, 11 inch son has gone from his normal 160-pound weight to a skeletal 120 pounds after enduring solitary confinement for two years, where he remains today. My son seems to be starving to death in the Florida prison system. He looks like the Holocaust victims in Hitler's concentration camps. Please help us. Please save my son."

James Kenneth Embry died Jan. 13, 2014, after a four-month hunger strike that took 32 pounds off his 6-foot frame in the last month of his life. Since his death the lead physician at the prison has been fired and state officials are in the midst of dismissing the lead psychologist.

Carlos Umana, 20, starved to death in a privately-owned Utah Jail

The Salt Lake City Tribune reports that a young prisoner who apparently suffered from serious mental illness died of starvation and dehydration after spending four months in the Salt Lake County Jail, much of them in solitary confinement. Carlos Umana, 20, weighed at 180 pounds when he entered the jail in October 2010; when he died on February 27, he weighed just 77 pounds. Tests showed that none of his prescribed psychiatric drugs were in his system at the time of his death.

Repeat of Header: Mentally ill people who are warehoused in America's jails and prisons routinely starve to death. James Kenneth Embry, 57, starved to death in Kentucky State Prison. Carlos Umana, 20, starved to death in a privately-owned Utah Jail. Umana's mother was prevented from visiting her son during his torturous incarceration. This is now happening to Nikko Albanese in a Florida prison. Please read the 21 paragraphs below and contact Heather Chapman if you can help. Do not allow this abuse to repeat.

You did not know about James Embry or Carlos Umana, but you know now about Nikko - in time to save him.

Thank you for giving Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill.

How can you help? Follow this blog, share this article, and listen to the George Mallinckrodt Blogtalkradio presentations taped January 11 and January 15, 2015 (links are in this blog). Mallinckrodt exposed brutality and a murder against mentally ill inmates in his book, "Getting Away with Murder" and was fired from his position as a psychotherapist in Florida prisons as a consequence of his objections to torture. Human and civil rights of persons with mental disabilities in the United States are treated as nonexistent.

It would be illegal to keep a dog in a tight space 23 hours a day and gas or Taser him for barking. It would be illegal to put a dog in deadly restraint for control. That happens to mentally ill people routinely in the nation's correctional facilities. What happened to Larry Neal? Why are we still asking that question after eleven years? Cover-ups regarding the wrongful deaths of mentally ill inmates are common and vile.

Mentally Ill Americans Need Dog Justice. Treat mental illness medically, not legally. Support the H.R. 3717 "Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act." The U.S. congressional bill provides for crisis intervention team (CIT) training for police and corrections officers, assisted outpatient treatment (AOT) programs to stop recidivism, and other needed changes.

DeKalb County, Georgia Police Assaulted My Son: Alexyss Taylor

Human rights for prisoners is treated like hate speech by prison investors. Stalkers at Blogtalkradio have decided to prevent my photographs from showing on the billboard there. I suspect that is because somebody at Blogtalkradio is a prison investor. Tonight we interviewed Alexyss Taylor, whose son was allegedly attacked and brutalized by a police officer at DeKalb County Police Department, in Georgia in January 2015. Our guests recounted the most frightening night of their lives during our Human Rights for Prisoners March radio broadcast on the "Human Rights Demand" channel, March 2, 2015. The photographs that stalkers, perhaps at the police department, NSA, CIA, FBI, or Blogtalkradio itself, prevented from showing at the billboard for the show are below. Radio shows are archived for your access 24/7. Listen at this link

Alexyss Taylor and Dinero Red will return next Monday at 3pm, where you can call in and speak to them at (347)857-3293. The first photo is our guest, Alexess Taylor. The video shows her sons's injuries:

Willacy County, TX Prison Riot and Giants Who Caused It


Friday morning, the inmates at the Willacy County Correctional Center, in southern Texas, refused to report to work and eat breakfast, the Valley Morning Star reported. Inmates then “breached” their housing units — which are a collection of massive tents — and entered the yard, the Associated Press reported. The prison is now uninhabitable. The prison's pattern of abuse of inmates that was established in a criminal case against federal officials in 2008 was never properly addressed. Instead, the prisoners' abuse was swept under the rug, like most brutality in American correctional institutions is, whether in domestic jails and prisons or in overseas War on Terror camps.


Russia Times reports, "After 2,000 inmates, mostly immigrants, took over a Texas prison in a riot over poor medical services, federal authorities have decided to relocate all the detainees from the now “uninhabitable” correctional facility. The riot at the Willacy County Correctional Center erupted on Friday afternoon, when prisoners refused to eat breakfast or report for work to protest medical services at the facility." http://rt.com/usa/234471-texas-uninhabitable-prison-riot/

I wrote about Wallacy County, Texas jails and prisons and a brave district attorney who brought Dick Chaney, Antonio Gonzales, and other federal and local officials up on charges for prisoner abuse in 2008. The information was placed in an article about Johnnie Cochran, which CoIntelPro blacked out to prevent a friend from reading yesterday: Johnnie Cochran's CoIntelPro Murder Theory, at http://freespeakblog.blogspot.com/2011/04/johnnie-cochrans-cointelpro-murder.html




Wallacy County, Texas is where VP Dick Chaney and former U.S. Attorney General Antonio Gonzales were indicted for prisoner abuse in 2008. They were accused of withholding federal investigations of prisoner abuse and wrongful deaths in exchange for prison stock and other good and valuable consideration. The case never went to trial. Instead, the D.A. was brought up on false charges and lost his reelection bid. 

The judge, who Prosecutor Juan Guerra had asked to recuse himself, dismissed the case against high federal officials and local judges. Information about Juan Guerra, the fearless D.A., is in an article I authored called "Johnnie Cochran's CoIntelPro Murder Theory," which CoIntelPro may not let you read. They would NOT let a friend read the article yesterday. Stalkers blackened her screen. She took a screenshot and posted it at Facebook, and stalkers made it invisible on her Facebook screen for everyone except her. https://plus.google.com/+MaryLovesJustice/posts/MP1zSdPweCo

Apparently, the Justice Department still takes payoffs to help cover-up prisoner abuse and wrongful deaths. That is likely why my family is not told how and why Larry Neal was secretly arrested for 18 days and murdered in Memphis Shelby County Jail in 2003, and we are DENIED any explanation, excuse, inquest, documents, and information about his secret incarceration for 18 days and murder, +United Nations. It is sad to know that the prisoners in Wallacy County, Texas are still enduring so much abuse that they riot, which is an act of desperation. 

It is wrong to use one's position over justice in America to withhold justice for monetary gain, if that is happening, and cause prisoners and their families to suffer. It shows deprivation of character to bring false charges against court officers like Juan Guerra and to possibly kill defense lawyers like Johnnie Cochran for working to improve justice in America and apply the protections under the U.S. Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to inmates. It is horrible to censor people like Mary Neal who write about these crimes against humanity. American officials use surveillance technology and their executive authority to conceal rather than correct injustices.

At least four cyber stalkers go online with me whenever I do, and they interfere with my ability to communicate with the public about such abuses as those that led to the latest riot in Wallacy County, Texas. Yesterday, a woman who sent me messages about her mentally ill sister who faces criminal charges in California was told twice by AT&T that my home phone number is disconnected, although that is a lie. I have reported the sabotage against my communication to DeKalb County Police, and Detective Wilson said sending viruses and Trojans to my computers and preventing my ability to communicate by telephone and computer takeovers are not illegal. The FBI, Homeland Security, U.S. Attorney's Office, USDOJ, and other government officials have all been notified, as have many media companies. The general consensus is that secret arrests, brutality, and murders of prisoners in the United States must be tolerated and discussion around these issues must be silenced. Therefore, prisoners riot.

Please pray for the prisoners in Wallacy County, Texas and throughout America, where inmates are boiled to death, starved to death, baked to death, Tasered to death, beaten to death, misused for medical experiments, and possibly killed for their organs. Families like mine are subjected to financial persecution, false arrests, gangstalking, and aggressive censorship for exposing our relatives' covered-up murders. My street, a quiet circle in an Atlanta surburb, looks like an expressway sometimes with all of the Negro gangstalkers driving by my home repeatedly for intimidation to silence my complaints about my mentally ill brother's lynching and the continuing abuses against America's prisoners. 

We must not be silent. As long as brave prisoners whose lives are directly in the criminals' hands have the courage to resist prisoner brutality, we prisoners who are on the outside can do no less.

I understand your warnings, Mr. Holder, Mr. Chaney, Mr. Gonzales, Mr. Comey, Mr. Johnson, Mr. Kerry, and other Genesis 6:4 giants, if the warnings to stop advocacy for prisoners' human rights or face severe consequences come from you. I understand your power using NSA, militarized police forces, NDAA, and extrajudicial assassination rights that were illegally assigned. But I cannot hear your warnings. There is somebody BIGGER than you and I, and it is only His voice that I can hear. He said:

"But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. I and my Father are one. " ~John 10:26-30

Many people have learned about brutality and murders of America's prisoners. We are of different religions, nationalities, races, and ethnic groups. We are on a human rights for prisoners march, and we are ONE.

Dave Koch: Slaying the Dragon re Re-Entry


Dave Koch joins "Human Rights for Prisoners March" at 9pmPST on January 26 for Part 2 of his interview about successful reentry. He advises parolees on how to reinvent themselves. Join us by phone at (818)572-2947 or via computer at 
http://www.blogtalkradio.com/nnia1/2015/01/27/dave-koch-joins-human-rights-for-prisoners-march-from-prison-to-the-ivory-tower 

The Dave Koch interview Part 1 was taped at 3pmEST on Blogtalkradio on January 25. The archived tape is available at Blogtalkradio 24/7.
http://www.blogtalkradio.com/humanrightsdemand/2015/01/25/david-koch-advises-parolees-on-successful-re-entry We were joined on air by Nancy Lockhart, a justice advocate; Dr. Mustafa Ansari, an international human rights lawyer; and Joanna, administrative assistant of Human Rights for Prisoners March.

Koch reinvented himself after prison and believes we all can. His website is called "Self Reinvention" http://www.selfreinvention.org/

Don't miss this opportunity to converse with Dave Koch, who went from prisons to become co-founder, president, CEO and chairman of the 68th fastest growing company in America - Fiber Network Solutions, which was one of the companies that built the infrastructure of the Internet in North America. Koch authored "Slaying the Dragon," a book to inspire us all to conquer the dragons in our lives. Even released prisoners like himself can make it to the ivory tower.

"Don't tell me that you can't have a great life after serving time in prison! It requires work, and just don't quit!" ~Dave Koch

"The Urban News" published an article in 2009 about the ex-con who became one of the most successful men in the USA, called "Ex-Con Turned CEO Declares: 'Accept Self-Blame and Re-Invent Yourself!'"
http://theurbannews.com/lifestyles/2009/ex-con-turned-ceo-declares-accept-self-blame-and-re-invent-yourself/


Over 30 years ago, on August 7, 1980, at the age of 24, Koch was released on parole after serving both federal and state sentences of 18 months to five years. Koch made the commitment to never return to prison, and set out on his life-long journey, reentering mainstream society and pursuing a new life and careers that include; Flight Instructor, Airline Transport Pilot, Software Developer and co-founder, President & CEO of the 68th Fastest Growing Company in America - 2001 Inc 500 List. 

Throughout his career as a pilot, Koch earned all of his commercial and instructor certificates and ratings, including the highest certificate attainable - the Airline Transport Pilot Certificate. Koch spent many years providing flight and ground instruction, and flying corporate jets, including the Learjet, Cessna Citation and Israeli Westwind II, and numerous turboprop aircraft. Koch co-founded Fiber Network Solutions during 1995 and served as its Chairman, President & CEO until he sold the company in 2003. Fiber Network Solutions was one of the companies that built the infrastructure of the Internet in North America. Fiber Network Solutions was started on a shoe string. 

Among his many awards, Koch earned the Entrepreneur of the Year finalist, Best in Business, and was twice distinguished on the Inc 500 List of America’s Fastest Growing Companies - # 68 Nationally, and # 1 in Ohio. Koch’s life and career began after his release from prison. His compelling 30-year career as a member of mainstream society provides the irrefutable evidence that a successful reentry into mainstream society, a path of normalcy and legitimacy, and all of the rich rewards that life has to offer are attainable after a felony conviction and an incarceration event. Whether a person wants one or not, they are going to have a journey. The destinations of their journey are dependent upon the choices they make during their journey.

"The Florida Department of Corrections is riddled with amoral, sadistic sociopaths and the people who support, enable, and cover-up their crimes." ~ @GeoMallinckrodt . . . (Twitter address)

"If what is done to mentally ill Florida inmates was done in the military, these would be considered war crimes." ~George Mallinckrodt

Mallinckrodt advocates on behalf of the mentally ill. He recently met with with Senator Greg Evers, the Chairman of the Criminal Justice Committee, and staffers Amanda and Tracy.

Learning of Darren Rainey's death over two years ago, late June 2012, George Mallinckrodt authored Getting Away With Murder in frustration over the many dead-ends he encountered while trying to bring Rainey's killers to justice. The narrative follows George's progression from an idealistic psychotherapist to a prison hardened case manager in the Transitional Care Unit where Darren Rainey would be housed.

Refusing to let go of the notion he could make a difference, George encountered inmates with deep rooted pathologies he had only read about in psychology journals. Undaunted, he steadily set about helping those capable of benefitting from his nearly 20 years of counseling experience.

Behind the scenes, rumors began to circulate regarding inmate abuse. Guards cleverly masked their behavior by choosing the weak and mentally ill. They abused inmates at night when mental health staffers were not around.

Overly confident that their misdeeds would go unpunished, guards made the mistake of beating an inmate during the day as an eye-witness looked on. That was the day that changed everything.

A book review by Amy M. August 17, 2014:

A shocking and darkly humorous account of working with mentally ill inmates in Florida's Dade Correctional Institution

George Mallinckrodt writes a gritty, mesmerizing account of his three years as psychotherapist in the "Transitional Care Unit" of the Dade Correctional Institution in south Florida, where inmates with mental health problems, including the most severe mental illnesses, are housed.

It's hard to put this book down. Although the subject is depressing, he weaves ribald prison humor and lively dialogue into his story. Mallinckrodt tells of his struggle with "being in prison" at a difficult and frustrating job. It is also a story about the inhumane and dangerous conditions for inmates in a run-down, poorly managed prison. Retribution keeps the inmates and the staff from reporting abuse. His journey from stressed out employee to prison rights advocate takes on greater urgency when a mentally ill inmate is brutally tortured and murdered by corrections officers in the prison and incident is completely covered up by authorities. (The investigation of the murder of the mentally ill inmate has still not been completed two years later.)

This book leaves you with the uncomfortable knowledge that terrible abuse is probably happening to inmates on a daily basis in badly managed prisons throughout the U.S., especially to inmates suffering from mental illness. If it were not for a few brave souls who are willing to report it, like Mallinckrodt and the inmates themselves, no one would ever know.

PETITIONS FOR JUSTICE FOR DARREN RAINEY
A Change.org petition with roughly 205,000 signatures demands a federal investigation 

A ForceChange.com petition demands justice for Darren Rainey
"Demand Justice for a Tortured Prisoner"

PETITION TO SAVE HAROLD HEMPSTEAD
Harold Hempstead is the Florida inmate who heard Darren Rainey screaming for help and begging for mercy as he died in the scalding hot shower where he was dragged and locked in by murderous corrections officers. Harold is serving a long prison sentence and is concerned about his safety in the Florida prison system. Retaliation against whistleblowers is common. His brave sister, Windy Hempstead, launched a Change.org petition to improve security for Harold Hemptstead by relocating him to federal custody. 

As Mallinckrodt said, "This is not an isolated case. Prisoner abuses are happening all the time." Read a series of articles about Darren Rainey and the torturous incarceration of other mentally ill inmates in Florida published by The Miami HeraldSee also an article in "Justice Gagged" blog about censorship applied to the George Mallinckrodt's interviews at "Human Rights Demand" channel on Blogtalkradio. Censorship that was applied at the 1 hour 20-minute mark to the interview on Sunday, January 11 cleared after Mary Neal left the show. It is a miracle if you are allowed to read this, because the screen goes blank before the article opens on my view.

Thank you for giving assistance to brutalized prisoners.

How can you help? Follow this blog, share this article, listen to the George Mallinckroth interviews on January 11 and January 15, and share the links with your social networks. George Mallinckroth experienced retaliation and is no longer a psychotherapist for Florida DOC. Please purchase a couple of his books - one for yourself and one for a friend or relative. We must support people with careers in law enforcement and corrections who blow the whistle on brutality and murders.
