Not Free at Last for Afro-Americans but now Enslaved by White Man's Laws & Social-Economical Oppression

Not only did slaves build the White House, they built just about everything else in this country-FREE OF CHARGE! Karen Jones saved to kyj 

Yes, ISIS Burned a Man Alive: White Americans Did the Same Thing to Black People by the Thousands

This account of the horrific murder of Sam Hose by White Americans is an even more grotesque and exaggerated version of the cruelty visited upon Muadh Al Kasasbeh by ISIS:
The white-owned newspapers of the South had long filled themselves with exaggerated or fabricated accounts of such violence. In the papers' version, the fight between Sam Hose and his boss became transformed into the most engaging crime of all: the rape of the white man's wife.
White Georgians tracked Hose down and prepared for his lynching. Two thousand people gathered for the killing, some taking a special excursion train from Atlanta for the purpose. The leaders of the lynching stripped Hose, chained him to a tree, stacked wood around him, and soaked everything in kerosene. The mob cut off Hose's ears, fingers, and genitals; they peeled the skin from his face. They watched, a newspaper reported, ''with unfeigned satisfaction'' as the man's veins ruptured from the heat and his blood boiled in flames.
''Oh, my God! Oh, Jesus,'' were the only words Hose could manage. When he finally died, the crowd cut his heart and liver from his body, sharing the pieces among themselves, selling fragments of bone and tissue to those unable to attend. No one wore a disguise or punished.

America's rhetorical condemning words of this horrible acts by Muslims. Saying it was viciousness, barbarity, horrific, savage killing amazes me, considering that the White Christian American's justified burning hundreds of thousands of civilians alive, that mostly consisted of mothers, mothers to be, their children, Including infants, adolescents, and teenagers.  Also, 245 Americans were also cremated alive and not gassed before as Adolf Hitler did to 6 Million Jews and 5 Million Non-Jews.

"African Americans are incarcerated at nearly six times the rate of whites"

"Together, African American and Hispanics comprised 58% of all prisoners in 2008, even though African Americans and Hispanics make up approximately one-quarter of the US population According to Unlocking America if African American and Hispanics were incarcerated at the same rates of whites, today’s prison and jail populations would decline by approximately 50%.                                                                                
One in six black men had been incarcerated as of 2001. If current trends continue, one in three black males born today can expect to spend time in prison during his lifetime
1 in 100 African American women are in prison
Nationwide, African-Americans represent 26% of juvenile arrests, 44% of youth who are detained, 46% of the youth who are judicially waived to criminal court, and 58% of the youth admitted to state prisons (Center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice).
Drug Sentencing Disparities

About 14 million Whites and 2.6 million African Americans report using an illicit drug
5 times as many Whites are using drugs as African Americans, yet African Americans are sent to prison for drug offences at 10 times the rate of Whites
African Americans represent 12% of the total population of drug users, but 38% of those arrested for drug offences, and 59% of those in state prison for a drug offence.
African Americans serve virtually as much time in prison for a drug offence (58.7 months) as whites do for a violent offence (61.7 months). (Sentencing Project)"

The United States puts more people behind bars than any other country, five times as many per capita compared with Britain or Spain.
It wasn't always like this. Half a century ago, relatively few people were locked up, and those inmates generally served short sentences. But 40 years ago, New York passed strict sentencing guidelines known as the "Rockefeller drug laws" — after their champion, Gov. Nelson Rockefeller — that put even low-level criminals behind bars for decades.Those tough-on-crime policies became the new normal across the country. But a new debate is under way over the effectiveness of tough sentencing laws.
Picture Credit New York Gov. Nelson Rockefeller had been a champion of drug rehabilitation, job training and housing. Then, he did a dramatic about-face and backed strict sentences for low-level criminals.

Bill Clinton admits his crime law made mass incarceration ‘worse’
07/15/15 02:12 PM—UPDATED 07/15/15 08:21 PM
By Eric Levitz
One day after President Obama decried mass incarceration in a speech before the NAACP convention, Bill Clinton owned up to his role in expanding the population of America’s prisons.
“Yesterday, the president spoke a long time and very well on criminal justice reform,” the former president said. “But I want to say a few words about it. Because I signed a bill that made the problem worse and I want to admit it.”
In 1994, President Clinton signed the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, which offered states billions in funding for new prisons – but only if they adopted “truth in sentencing laws” that would reduce prisoners’ eligibility for parole. The law also established mandatory life sentences for people convicted of a third violent felony, among other punitive measures. By the end of the Clinton presidency, the number of people in America’s prisons rose by nearly 60%, according to the Brennan Center for Justice.

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) reports 2.2 million people are in our nation’s jails and prisons and another 4.5 million people are on probation or parole in the U.S., totalling 6.8 million people, one of every 35 adults. We are far and away the world leader in putting our own people in jail. Most of the people inside are poor and Black. Here are 40 reasons why.

Jailing Americans for Profit: The Rise of the Prison Industrial Complex

John W. Whitehead 
Attorney, President of The Rutherford Institute, and author of ‘Battlefield America’

“Mass incarceration on a scale almost unexampled in human history is a fundamental fact of our country today — perhaps the fundamental fact, as slavery was the fundamental fact of 1850. In truth, there are more black men in the grip of the criminal-justice system — in prison, on probation, or on parole — than were in slavery then. Overall, there are now more people under ‘correctional supervision’ in America — more than six million — than were in the Gulag Archipelago under Stalin at its height.” — Adam Gopnik, “The Caging of America.“
In an age when freedom is fast becoming the exception rather than the rule, imprisoning Americans in private prisons run by mega-corporations has turned into a cash cow for big business. At one time, the American penal system operated under the idea that dangerous criminals needed to be put under lock and key to protect society. Today, as states attempt to save money by outsourcing prisons to private corporations, the flawed yet retributive American “system of justice” is being replaced by an even more flawed and insidious form of mass punishment based upon profit and expediency.

As author Adam Gopnik reports for the New Yorker:


Portugal decriminalised the use of all drugs in 2001. Weed, cocaine, heroin, you name it —

 Portugal decided to treat possession and use of small quantities of these drugs as a public health issue, not a criminal one. The drugs were still illegal, of course. But now getting caught with them meant a small fine and maybe a referral to a treatment program — not jail time and a criminal record. Among Portuguese adults, there are 3 drug overdose deaths for every 1,000,000 citizens. Comparable numbers in other countries range from 10.2 per million in the Netherlands to 44.6 per million in the UK, all the way up to 126.8 per million in Estonia. The EU average is 17.3 per million. 

(Estimated Drug-Induced Mortality in the US, 2014, by Gender and Race/Ethnicity) "In People with mental health disorders are at increased risk for heavy ..... mortality rate of between 22.3 and 54.0 deaths per million population aged 15-64.

Perhaps more significantly, the report notes that the use of "legal highs" – like so-called "synthetic" marijuana, "bath salts" and the like – is lower in Portugal than in any of the other countries for which reliable data exists. This makes a lot of intuitive sense: why bother with fake weed or dangerous designer drugs when you can get the real stuff? This is arguably a positive development for public health in the sense that many of the designer drugs that people develop to skirt existing drug laws have terrible and often deadly side effects.

Capital punishment in Portugal

Portugal was a pioneer in the process of abolishment, of the capital punishment. No executions have been carried out since 1846
