Historic Clemency Drive a Dud


The Justice Department's promises about clemency reached a snag. This seems to be another case of, "Give us credit; we tried to do the right thing." And the crowds cheer in their mass hypnosis. Al Jareeza reports "Ambitious effort to extend presidential clemency to thousands of inmates is at risk of stalling because of a legal snag." "I tried" and a dollar won't buy a bag of chips. Never has any presidential administration "tried" to do so much for Americans, particularly blacks, and actually accomplished so little. See an excerpt below.

Federal defenders potentially excluded from historic clemency drive

Six months after the Justice Department called on defense lawyers to help it identify and vet candidates for its clemency drive, there is concern that the federal defenders — whom the DOJ invited in as key partners — might never have been authorized to participate in the first place. This could leave the initiative without the manpower it needs.
A high portion of the potential pool of inmates is represented by the federal defenders, and they have been critical in the formation and operation of Clemency Project 2014, a coalition of defense lawyers and advocates created in the wake of the DOJ’s call. (The vast majority of those prosecuted in federal courts receive court-appointed lawyers; in districts where there is a federal defenders’ office, they generally handle 60 percent of those cases.)
"Federal defenders include some of the best courtroom and appellate advocates in the United States. Having them work with the Clemency Project 2014 has been important to the work we are doing,” said Mark Osler, director of the Federal Commutations Clinic at the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota, who has been training lawyers for the Clemency Project. “Losing them as a part of the coalition would be a significant challenge.” Read the entire article at

Daniel Linsinbigler: Christian Inmate Persecuted, Murdered

Well, that was rude! The cyber stalkers disconnected the show ten minutes early to prevent my telling you that Daniel Linsinbigler, 19, was killed for his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ in Clay County Jail in Florida, according to eyewitness testimony. Daniel was murdered in March 2013. (MaryLovesJustice Prayer Meeting airs on Sunday nights at 9pm PDT on the Blogtalkradio NNIA1 channel.)

"They were all making fun of him. They were calling him a Jesus freak, a God freak ... [teasing him] about his religious beliefs: 'God can't help you now. God can't give you a pencil." He started complaining that he was having chest pains. 'I can't breathe, I can't breathe. Get this hood off. I'm going to behave . . . Just let me get some air. I have to be able to breathe.'" ~Linus Farr, an eyewitness to the murder of Daniel Linsinbigler by demonic guards and/or law officers. Hear our interview with Daniel Linsinbigler's family and supporters at our July 19 broadcast on "Human Rights Demand" at Blogtalkradio. This interview is highly censored, because Daniel's murder is in litigation, and murderous authorities would like to minimize their payout for this murder http://www.blogtalkradio.com/humanrightsdemand/2014/07/19/release-the-innocent

Obviously, Daniel's pleas for air were ignored, because the Christian teenager who suffered from mental illness died of SUFFOCATION in a restraint chair with pepper spray swelling his mucus membranes and a spit cap over his head, not unlike those worn by detainees in the War on Terror camps during torture. Daniel's murder reminds me of the young lady who was killed for her faith in Columbine High School. She refused to deny Christ and was shot by a sick and evil gunman. Daniel, on the other hand, was killed by people who are paid by taxpayers to keep the peace and safely contain society's prisoners, but cyber stalkers don't want us to discuss that. See "Wrongful Death of Daniel Linsinbigler" at "Dog Justice for Mentally Ill" blog. http://dogjusticeformentallyill.blogspot.com/2014/07/wrongful-death-of-daniel-linsinbigler.html

As a woman who is denied information and justice regarding the wrongful death of an inmate (Google the Wrongful Death of Larry Neal), I stand with all inmates in their quest for human rights and with the families of all inmates whose human rights were disregarded to deny justice in court or to inflict torture and death.

If denied justice in courts, take your justice quests to the court of public opinion through our Human Rights for Prisoners March across the Internet.

Settled for $2.75m: Ronald Spear's Wrongful Death Lawsuit

MaryLovesJustice: Murdering Disabled Riker's Island Inmates: Ronald ...: Ronald Spear, kidney patient, killed at Riker's Island -  

UPDATE July 21, 2014:  SETTLED for $2.75 million. The New York Times reports:
"New York City has agreed to pay $2.75 million to settle a lawsuit stemming from the December 2012 death of a prisoner at Rikers Island after he suffered what the city medical examiner’s office concluded was “blunt force trauma” to the head. The inmate, Ronald Spear, 52, had kidney problems and walked with a cane, according to the lawsuit. The medical examiner’s office ruled that the manner of death was homicide." Read the article http://marylovesjustice.blogspot.com/2013/04/murdering-disabled-rikers-island.html

No amount of money can make a family "whole" after the wrongful death of a member. It is too late for justice after a disabled family member has been brutally killed behind bars. All families can do is seek monetary damages for the pain and suffering their loved ones endured and they experience while grieving. We must encourage change by exacting punitive damages against the prison industrial complex. Significant payouts might motivate corrections officers and police officers to respect the human rights of prisoners. Read about the Spear settlement in a New York Times report at this link:

Our condolences once again to Ronald Spear's family. Congratulations on your persistence in pursuit of restitution. Your tenacity may help to save other prisoners at Riker's Island and throughout America.

June 15, 2014 - Two Dallas police officers on leave after mentally ill man shot, killed ~ DALLAS — A 38-year-old man was shot and killed in the doorway of his mother's Oak Cliff home Saturday morning by the very people called to help him. Investigators are reviewing video from body cameras the officers were wearing at the time of the incident. Sources say it's the first Dallas police shooting captured by body cameras.

"My neighbor said when she got here he was face down in a pool of blood HANDCUFFED," said Harrison, Jason Harrison's brother.

“I just really wish that he could have got the help that we've really been trying to get for him so that maybe it could have had a different outcome,” Harrison said. “We'll never know.”

James Kenneth Embry

On January 13, James Embry, a mentally ill inmate, died by starvation in Kentucky State Penitentiary. According to the report of the internal investigation, Embry stopped taking medications for anxiety in May 2013. Seven months later, he told the lead prison psychologist, Jean Hinkebein, on Dec. 3 that he felt anxious and paranoid and wanted to restart those medications. But the psychologist concluded Embry didn't have any significant mental health issues even though Embry repeatedly talked about wanting to hurt himself. Hinkebein and an associate considered his comments vague, and his request for medication was denied. Soon after that, Embry stopped eating. Read the entire AP article about Embry's demise at

Another one is gone already ! "Homeless Man Falls To His Death From Skid Row Rooftop After Police Taser Him" ~ Carlos Ocana, 54, a transient whose friends said he had mental health problems, was killed by LAPD officers and a SWAT team. The homeless man died after falling from a rooftop after he was Tasered by police officers. His death in May hadn't received much attention, but downtown residents and supporters showed up to a community meeting on July 2, 2014, demanding officers to change the way they treat the mentally ill on Skid Row. This comes on the heels of an LAPD officer describing Skid Row as being in a "mental health state of emergency" and an "outdoor asylum without walls."

Chicago jailers laughed while fatally tasing Phillip Coleman, a mentally ill man, 16 times. CHICAGO, IL — An investigation regarding the in-custody death of a mentally ill man has revealed that police tasered him a total of 16 times while shackled. Video shows that police used the taser as a compliance tool in a jail cell and were laughing during the incident. The man was also tased repeatedly as he was taken to court and then to the hospital, until he died. Coleman's father put his own body between his son and police guns during Coleman's lunacy arrest. "I told them [police] that my son was having an emotional breakdown, and could they please take him to the hospital,” recalled Percy, himself a retired police chief. “And that’s when one of the officers said, ‘We do not do hospitals, we do jail.’ Unbelievable.”

Terrorism and Murders of American Mentally Ill Citizens

UPDATED June 27, 2014 and July 12, 2014

YOU CAN ONLY SAVE ONE OF THESE MENTALLY ILL AMERICANS. Only one of these men is still alive, and he is wrongfully incarcerated in Pennsylvania in grave danger: Terrell Scott (top left). The other three men were already killed by police or corrections officers: Brian Claunch (top right), Kelly Thomas (bottom left), and Larry Neal (bottom right). Please help Holly Alston save her son.


Brian Claunch was killed by police who answered a call at his Texas care home. Claunch was a double amputee sitting in his wheelchair with a ballpoint ink pen as his only weapon. Police shot and killed the mentally, physically disabled man. Officers were not charged.

Kelly Thomas was killed by six Fullerton, California officers. He was an unarmed, homeless man who begged for his life while he was beaten by police into a coma. He died days later in the hospital. Two of the officers were charged and tried for murder but were not convicted.

Larry Neal was secretly arrested (kidnapped) and killed on the 18th day of secret incarceration in Memphis Shelby County Jail. Police repeatedly lied to Larry's family and social worker and denied having him in custody for almost three weeks while he was used for scientific experiments, water boarding training, or otherwise misused. The jail and the United States Department of Justice refuse to release records as to how and why Larry Neal was secretly arrested and murdered.

Terrell Scott was arrested and held without trial for 4.5 years in Pennsylvania. He was deemed too sick for trial but sane enough to plea bargain on false charges. Terrell was brutally beaten, raped, exposed to HIV virus, and subjected to inhumane solitary confinement until he agreed to sign the plea bargain. When he did, he was released on March 5, 2014. But he was re-arrested on June 5, 2014 on a new false charge and remains imprisoned now. Scott reported to his mother that Judge Zito signed an Order to incarcerate him for six months in the prison's drug/alcohol unit although Scott has never taken a drug test, never failed a drug test, and was never arrested in connection with drugs or alcohol. Scott was again denied a trial. Holly Alston called and spoke to a prison official over that detox floor and was told that Scott's placement there was an error that has now been corrected.

The mentally ill young man was arrested in June on false charges alleging probation violation. Scott was charged with missing two probation appointments that were scheduled for days before he was released from prison and one date while Scott was committed to a mental hospital. Scott was arrested at the mental hospital where he was undergoing treatment for post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) resulting from his trauma while imprisoned 4.5 years without trial. Scott is so depressed to find himself back in prison, innocent of any crime, that he told his mother that he may not be able to make it this time.

YOU CAN ONLY SAVE ONE OF THESE MENTALLY ILL AMERICANS. Only one of these men is still alive, and he is wrongfully incarcerated in Pennsylvania in grave danger: Terrell Scott (top left). The other three men were already killed by police or corrections officers: Brian Claunch (top right), Kelly Thomas (bottom left), and Larry Neal (bottom right). Please help Holly Alston save her son. Scott's probation violation hearing is scheduled for June 27.

June 27, 2014 UPDATE: Terrell Scott's hearing was postponed until Wednesday, July 2, 2014. His probation officer was reportedly unavailable for the hearing due to a family emergency. Scott was unable to be assigned a public defender. His treacherous former attorney, Glennis L Clark, Esq., who did not bother to show up for his client's first probation hearing, has refused to remove his name as the acting attorney. He was fired two weeks ago by Terrell's grandfather, who paid for his legal services. The family assumes Clark remains on record as legal counsel on this case simply to block Scott from having adequate representation.

July 12, 2014 UPDATE: Clark finally excused himself as Scott's attorney, and he was appointed a legal counsel. Alston reports that when she asked for Scott's legal file from Clark, his assistant said the file was not available because Clark was "not through removing documents from it." This was reportedly said before a witness and is obviously illegal. Scott had another hearing this week, and Judge Zito claimed there was nothing in Scott's file about his mental illness, which is astonishing. According to his mother, Pennsylvania planned to levy 40 new charges to excuse Scott's imprisonment - discovered by reading Scott's information online. Realizing that would necessitate a trial (which Scott has never had and is not expected to ever receive), Judge Zito allegedly claimed at the hearing that Scott must be imprisoned because he is mentally ill and suicidal. If that happens, Scott will be the first American we know about who was removed from a mental hospital and imprisoned for the "crime" of being mentally ill.

The U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is missing in action regarding its duty to protect persons with mental health disabilities from prison investors, with its $5.1 billion budget for 2014 (your tax money). The U.S. Department of Justice also abdicates its responsibilities to protect Americans with disabilities and allows prison investors to wrongly incarcerate 1.25 million mentally ill people in brutal and often deadly circumstances - IF they survive the lunacy arrests. Mentally ill Americans are routinely denied treatment to await crimes (including misdemeanors like vagrancy and panhandling) to excuse imprisonment. However, Terrell Scott may be the first citizen who was actually removed from a psychiatric facility in order to generate prison profits.

The Truth About Clemency

The video embedded below was surreptitiously removed from my "Legal Victories" group at Facebook. It was also substituted in my "Legal Victories" blog with a video of Eric Holder discussing the Voting Rights Act. When Holder made the announcement at the April 21 speech (YouTube link http://youtu.be/GRy2bsUMuoE ) about clemency being considered for possibly thousands of inmates, threats to recall and prosecute the attorney general increased significantly.

"Attorney General on Expanding Clemency Criteria for Drug Offenders in Federal Prison"



See the redirected link in the last paragraph of "Legal Victories Expected re Clemency" at http://legalvictories.blogspot.com/2014/04/legal-victories-expected-re-clemency.html . Holder recently stated that 23 months would be cut from qualified inmates' sentences. That seems to be a Change from the expectations raised regarding clemency by Attorney General Holder in this video, and perhaps that explains why the video of his April 21 speech was removed from Facebook where I placed it and the link to this speech was redirected in my "Legal Victories" article to a speech about Voting Rights. Cyberstalking Mary Neal happens often. I am "America's Most Censored - Mary Neal" (Google it).

Thousands of America's inmates were sentenced under the 100:1 crack to powered cocaine law that the government later declared to be unjust and racist. The disparity was REDUCED but not eliminated under the 2010 Fair Sentencing Act. The present disparity is 18:1. Last year, President Obama granted clemency to eight victims who were unjustly given long sentences including life in prison for crack cocaine offenses under the old law, which was never applied retroactively to inmates who were sentenced before 2010. To cut only 23 months off the sentences of such individuals seems minuscule.

The United Nations made a recommendation in March 2014 that the Fair Sentencing Act should be applied retroactively to inmates who were sentenced under the unjust 100:1 law, which was admitted to have been racist. The federal mandatory sentencing law keeps thousands of individuals contained at great expense to taxpayers - people who would otherwise already be free if not for the racism in America's injustice system.

Referring to the United Nation's assessment of human rights in the United States that was issued in March, Al Jazeera reported, “[The] committee continues to be concerned about racial disparities at different stages in the criminal justice system, sentencing disparities and the over-representation of individuals belonging to racial and ethnic minorities in prisons and jails.”

"The U.N. body calls on the U.S. to retroactively implement the 2010 Fair Sentencing Act and close a loophole that allows thousands of nonviolent offenders to languish in federal prisons as a result of draconian drug laws."

Jeffrey Wansley: Innocent in Mississippi


Please read the following information and see Jeffrey Wansley's petition for release:
http://www.eopinion.us/jefferywansley/petitionforrelease.pdf(A computerized petition will be added for your endorsement). Wansley wrote:


My name is Jeffery Wayne Wansley, and as of now I’ve been unlawfully held in custody for over 14 years by the State of Mississippi for a crime I didn’t commit. At trial, the prosecution and it’s witnesses, the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics (MBN) and a convicted felon/drug abuser with pending charges, alleged that it used a $100 bill of Official State Funds, bearing serial number #AH30644253A, and a 60” audio cassette tape in an undercover sting operation; however, no one has ever seen or heard any of this alleged evidence, and there is no documentation from the Mississippi Crime Lab proving that it ever existed.

To prove my innocence, I submitted the above mentioned serial numbers to the United States Dept. of the Treasury under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), and that agency verified that the serial numbers came off of a $20.00 bill. See: "Wrongfully Convicted" attached hereto.

I've been proving my innocence for years, according to law, the United States Constitution, plain error, and newly discovered evidence; however, several courts here in the State of Mississippi and the Fifth Circuit have failed to adhere to the Constitution of the United States or the State of Mississippi. They deny and dismiss every legal proceeding for redress I have filed for over 14 years. For proof of my innocence, please view information at the following urls:

1. CONTACT AUTHORITIES


On February 20, 2012, the Attorney General’s office made the following statement to CNN: “Our office has the singular responsibility to not only ensure that the guilty are punished, but that the innocent are set free."

If you agree, please call Mississippi's Attorney General Jim Hood (601) 359-3680 and inquire why his office keeps fighting to keep Jeffery Wansley incarcerated for a crime he did not commit. [Mississippi's governor is on Twitter at

Wrongful convictions are the ultimate breakdown in the system. Prosecutors will almost never admit they made a mistake. Those who do are very rare and should absolutely be recognized for their integrity. The truth is not always pretty, but it should be acknowledged regardless of the professional consequences or embarrassment. A man’s life is worth much more than the tragic and ill-conceived notion that officials must always appear to be right and mistake-free in the execution of their responsibilities. An injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere (MLK)
