Georgia bishop asks pardons board to spare inmate’s life

January 29, 2015 at 1:19 pm The evidence is overwhelming that HILL WAS NOT MENTALLY DISABLED Hill never presented any mental disability claim in his two murder trials, and it was not used until five years AFTER his death sentence. The claims of mental disability were destroyed.Both Hill’s job record and his military history lay waste to the mentally disabled claims. Featured Jobs & Calls By Don PlummerPosted Jan 23, 2015 Featured Events Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Richard McClellan says: Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC [Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta] Bishop Rob Wright Jan. 26 sent a letter to the chair and members of Georgia’s Board of Pardons and Paroles asking them to spare the life of an intellectually disabled death-row inmate. Warren Lee Hill is scheduled to be executed Jan. 27.Warren HillHill, whose intellectual disability has been twice confirmed by lower courts, had his final appeal to the State Supreme Court denied Jan. 20. The Board of Pardons and Paroles, which meets Jan. 26, provides Hill with a last opportunity for avoiding the death penalty unless the U.S. Supreme Court intervenes.In his letter Wright made a biblical argument against executing Hill. “While many people support capital punishment, Holy Scripture clearly shows Jesus never taught that we should murder a human being, no matter how heinous the crime.”He told the board that he was greatly encouraged in July 2014 when they commuted the death sentence to life without parole in the case of Tommy Lee Waldrip.“Your decision was a victory for morality and human dignity and I praise you for your action. Today I urge you to again take the courageous path and spare the life of Mr. Hill,” he said.Since 1984, Georgia has executed 56 people, an average of two per year. However, in the past year Georgia has increased the frequency of executions with six scheduled executions.Since 1954, The Episcopal Church has called repeatedly for an end to executions. Wright said in a letter to more than 200 clergy in his diocese that he hopes they will express concern to state officials — and physically witness their opposition to the death penalty. “As we all know, capital punishment can never bring an end to killing,” he said.This is not the first time Wright has called an end to Georgia executions. In December, he wrote a letter to Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal urging a halt to the practice. At that time Robert Wayne Holsey was facing execution. Holsey was executed Dec. 9 for the murder of Baldwin County sheriff’s deputy Will Robinson.On Jan. 13 the state also executed Andrew Howard Brannan, a decorated war veteran who suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder, according to court records. Brannan was put to death for the 1998 murder of 22-year-old Laurens County Sheriff’s Deputy Kyle Wayne Dinkheller.Georgia is the only state to require evidence of intellectual disability to be proved beyond a reasonable doubt. All other states use a less-strict standard of proof.In a New York Times editorial published Jan. 23, the editors said “Mr. Hill’s case is a catalog of everything that is wrong with the death penalty.”Vigils protesting the death penalty are planned for outside Georgia’s death-row prison and in Atlanta and 10 other locations throughout Georgia, according to Georgians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty website.

At one time in my life I believed there were justifications for the death penalty. My experience in Kairos prison ministry began to change that, and my study of the issue over the past several decades has affirmed to me that the death penalty is beyond mankind’s ability. Our society’s attempts to “civilize” the procedures used to stop a beating heart by strapping to a gurney and injecting fatal dosages of numbing agents and poison is an indicator that we know ending a life is not a right we hold. The rest of a convicts life in a cage is adequate punishment, perhaps even worse than being put to sleep by the state. Let the gift of life be awarded and revoked by God alone.

South Carolina prisoners jailed in ‘a modern day plantation’

first_imgFamilies and allies of prisoners rally at the gates of Lee Correctional Institution in Bishopville, S.C., Aug. 25.Conducted after an April 15 rebellion at Lee Correctional Institution, a South ­Carolina maximum security prison, this excerpted interview is Part 5 of a series. (Earlier segments are available at workers.org.) Lee was the deadliest prison uprising since the Lucasville Uprising on April 11-21, 1993. (See “Lucasville prison uprising 25th anniversary,” at workers.org) Jared Ware spoke with individuals inside Lee, one of whom identified as a member of Jailhouse Lawyers Speak, a group of imprisoned human rights advocates who called for the National Prison Strike from Aug. 21 to Sept. 9. Demands and support actions are at incarceratedworkers.org.Jared: Lee Correctional Facility [in Bishopville, S.C.] was named after the county, Lee County. That county was named after Robert E. Lee, a Confederate general and a former slave owner, and a facility that is in his name. The county was first named Lee County in the 1890s after Reconstruction had ended. [Lee Correctional opened up in 1993.] What does it mean to prisoners that make that connection?S: Prisoners who were probably from the Bishopville area who may have had that information through the educational system, or conscious prisoners who read and research things — those prisoners might be aware of that. But for the vast majority of prisoners, that don’t have any significance to them.D: I would have to second that. I don’t think prisoners for the most part have any awareness of that. To be honest with you, as much reading as I have done, as much cultural reading as I have done, I was very ignorant of that up until very recently, up until the last several weeks. … We all know a prison is nothing more than a modern day plantation. So we understand that fact, really it’s quite fitting. But still, it would seem you wouldn’t want to name one of your state institutions. … It seems like someone would raise their hand and say, “No.”This is the type of mindset we’re dealing with in the state of South Carolina today. … [South Carolina is] in the top six or seven states as far as racial disparities [that] relates to sentencing and imprisonment rates in the nation. I think [Black people are] only like 20 to 30 percent of the population in South Carolina and over 60-something percent of the prison population.A recent study not too long ago told us that Black people specifically were being automatically oversentenced by judges. It said if you were Black, you were 50 times more likely to get jail time for a minor offense versus if you were any other race. If you were compared to white defendants, you were over 70 percent more likely to be sentenced to longer sentences, based on your race. Everybody knows the color of the state of South Carolina when you walk into the prison system. All of this is an indicator of the nature of the beast that we are dealing with.Even when South Carolina was going through Reconstruction, all of the Blacks that were a part of the Reconstruction phase were eventually thrown out of power, because there was a compromise between the North and the South. We have to always remember that. That’s when we get back to 1865, back to the 13th Amendment, that constitutional amendment and the compromise [to continue slavery in prison] that was reached across the table. The power dynamics in the South has never changed. And I think we’re seeing the rottenness of it in today’s times.S: For example, one of my comrades was recently released from prison over the last year or so. He was housed at Lee County at one point and he was a coordinator on the compound. He was able to organize over 150 members every week to come together positively, sit down and have discussions. … Whenever there would be any type of altercation, they would try to talk over things first, and most often if they couldn’t, then they would handle it like men and knuckle it up. But there wasn’t so much knives, and people getting killed or stabbed up. All of that was calmed down for a while.[Then] the STG (Security Threat Group) supervisor from headquarters got with the warden at that time, and they called [my friend] to a conference to explain how is it that you could have Crips, Bloods, Muslims, etc., in the same room every week and never any violence going on? The [STG] told [the warden] that [the prisoners] were “up to something.” And what did they do to [my comrade coordinating the program]? They shipped him to another institution.To make a long story short, [then the administration at Lee] moved these guys around, piled all these guys up on one yard, waited for one thing to happen. Boom! You get the worst thing that happened in the last 25 years. [April 15] was strategically implemented.D: All of this right here [in Lee Correctional] is not by accident. None of it is by accident. That’s the sad part about it.S: Yeah, they were used as lab rats.S: I want to say for society, to them: Let he who has not sinned cast the first stone. Prisoners, some of us in here, have made mistakes and some of us did the things we did. … But we have paid for our mistakes. Show some humanity. That’s what we want society to do — show some humanity.D: One last note I wanted to add. The ground is vibrating right now for a national strike Aug. 21 [to Sept. 9] throughout the nation. South Carolina is an example of what’s actually occurring throughout the nation. … People died here [at Lee Correctional] so they might want to get in back of this [strike] right here, and highlight it by mobilizing throughout the inside.So we ask folks to support it on the outside … really support these actions. Let the people know that wherever prisoners may decide to have a strike or a sit-in that the public is mindful, and are watching for any type of retaliatory actions that may take place throughout the process of this resistance that may be taking place across this nation.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_img Twitter Pinterest By Digital AIM Web Support – January 28, 2021 TAGS  Pinterest UTRECHT–(BUSINESS WIRE)–jan 28, 2021– Xerox ® Corporation (NTSE: XRX) breidt zijn softwareportfolio uit met de overname van CareAR. Dit bedrijf levert een augmented reality-platform voor field service-activiteiten. Het platform biedt realtime toegang tot expertise aan klanten, medewerkers en monteurs in de buitendienst. Dit persbericht bevat multimedia. Bekijk hier het volledige persbericht: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210128005638/nl/ CareAR is de nieuwste oplossing in een reeks die Xerox lanceerde voor klanten met het oog op hun digitale transformatie. (Photo: Business Wire) Met de software van CareAR™ kunnen medewerkers op afstand een concrete situatie voor zich zien en door een oplossing voor een probleem geleid worden met de hulp van een suite van augmented reality-tools via een desktop, een smartphone of een AR-/VR-bril. Op dit moment vereist een derde van alle on-site opdrachten van field service-medewerkers assistentie van een expert op afstand. Het is daarbij vaak moeilijk om de context van de situatie duidelijk te maken. Dat zorgt voor vertragingen, een negatieve klantervaring en risico’s op klantverlies. Verder kan downtime erg kostbaar zijn. Kosten kunnen afhankelijk van de bedrijfsgrootte oplopen van 300.000 dollar tot wel vijf miljoen dollar per uur. 1 “Onze softwareoplossingen spelen in op enkele van de belangrijkste uitdagingen van klanten”, zegt Steve Bandrowczak, President en Chief Operations Officer van Xerox. “Door DocuShare ®, XMPie en Career te combineren, kunnen we met onze softwareactiviteiten gezamenlijk of apart klanten met een brede variëteit aan eisen bedienen.” De uitgebreide softwareactiviteiten worden geleid door Sam Waicberg, Vice President en General Manager Digital Services bij Xerox en eerder medeoprichter en CEO van CareAR. Het platform van CareAR integreert naadloos met dat van workflowspecialist ServiceNow. Zo is te voorzien in een end-to-end benadering voor werkorders, cases en incidenten, waarbij er volledig inzicht is en troubleshooting beter mogelijk is. “De augmented reality-software van CareAR, dat geïntegreerd is in en gecertificeerd door ServiceNow, helpt klanten om serviceproblemen op afstand te bekijken en op te lossen”, zegt Michael Ramsey, Vice President Customer Workflow Product Management van ServiceNow. “De overname door Xerox kan helpen bij het verder stimuleren van de mogelijkheden om field service-activiteiten, customer-support en IT-diensten te moderniseren door de inzet van het Now Platform en CareAR.” ServiceNow werkt momenteel samen met Deloitte aan het integreren van CareAR for ServiceNow ® in de servicesystemen en supportworkflows van gezamenlijke klanten. “Het CareAR-augmented reality-platform van Xerox biedt ons de mogelijkheid om onze marktleidende, op de sector gerichte ServiceNow-oplossingen verder uit te breiden”, zegt Asish Ramchandran, Principal bij Deloitte Consulting LLP. “CareAR is de volgende stap vooruit in de digitale transformatie die organisaties zijn gestart. Samen hebben we de mogelijkheid om nieuwe-generatie-oplossingen te bieden die zorgen voor betere resultaten en waarde voor onze gezamenlijke klanten.” CareAR is de nieuwste oplossing in een reeks die Xerox lanceerde voor klanten met het oog op hun digitale transformatie. Deze omvatten automation- en centralisatie-oplossingen zoals DocuShare ®, een contentmanagementplatform met robuuste tools om processen en digitale transformatie in de cloud te ondersteunen, en XMPie ®, een flexibele technologie waarmee marketingassets op maat te maken zijn en gepersonaliseerd kunnen worden voor verschillende touchpoints, zowel online als offline, voor het ontwikkelen van volledige geïntegreerde marketingcampagnes. Over Xerox Xerox zorgt dat iedere dag beter werkt. Het is een bedrijf dat werkplektechnologie ontwikkelt en software en hardware integreert voor grote en kleine ondernemingen. Klanten willen informatie beheren via digitale en fysieke platformen en daar levert Xerox een naadloze, veilige en duurzame ervaring voor.

The Bench contemplated why an FIR was not registered immediately, if such a heinous crime happened with a little girl. The order stated, “This Court has seen the CCTV footage and in the said CCTV footage, father of the victim was outside the building. Complainant entered into the building and within a minute, he is seen catching hold of the petitioner and bringing him out. If such type of heinous crime had taken place and that with a 2 ½ years old girl, why immediately the FIR was not registered.” The Bench was presiding over a bail application move by the accused, Shiv Chander, booked under Sections 376AB of IPC and Section 6 of the POCSO Act allegedly for insisting the victim to perform oral sex while the zip of his pant was open. As per the FIR, on seeing this incident lot of neighbours gathered and beat the Petitioner, who was allegedly in an intoxicated state, following which the Petitioner was arrested. The Bench however noted certain contradictions in the material placed on record and expressed inclination to release the accused on bail. It observed, “There is a delay of 8 hours in registration of FIR and there was no sign of beating and intoxication in MLC of the petitioner because if the neighbors had beaten the petitioner and he was in a state of intoxication then the said fact should have come in the MLC, but the said MLC does not show any sign of bruises or abrasion, indicating that there was no public beating which was alleged in the FIR. xxx Accordingly, he shall be released on bail on his furnishing a personal bond in the sum of Rs.15,000/- with one surety in the like amount to the satisfaction of the Trial Court.” Know the Law The Supreme Court has in a catena of judgments held that even a long delay in registration of First Information Report (FIR) can be condoned if the witness has no motive for falsely implicating the accused. In one such case, a Division Bench had observed, “Delay in setting the law into motion by lodging the complaint is normally viewed by the courts in suspicion because there is possibility of concoction of evidence against the accused. In such cases, it becomes necessary for the prosecution to satisfactorily explain the delay in registration of FIR. But there may be cases where the delay in registration of FIR is inevitable and the same has to be considered. Even a long delay can be condoned if the witness has no motive for falsely implicating the accused.” In another case, a three-Judge Bench had observed, “Normally, the Court may reject the case of the prosecution in case of inordinate delay in lodging the first information report because of the possibility of concoction of evidence by the prosecution. However, if the delay is satisfactorily explained, the Court will decide the matter on merits without giving much importance to such delay. The Court is duty bound to determine whether the explanation afforded is plausible enough given the facts and circumstances of the case. The delay may be condoned if the complainant appears to be reliable and without any motive for implicating the accused falsely.” Case Title: Shiv Chander v.

The plea by the Actor has alleged that grave miscarriage of justice has been caused, on account of the observations made in the impugned order. The plea further alleges that the Court denied the grant of temporary injunction without considering the fact that the petitioners have already acquired approval of the Municipal Commissioner for their proposal moved under the Municipal Corporation Act, and are awaiting NOC of the Maharashtra Coastal Zone Management Authority, with regard to the suit building. According to the petitioners, the High Court not only took extraneous factors into consideration, but used the same as a foundation to render observations on the petitioner’s conduct. It has been contended in the plea that the High Court has committed a manifest error by proceeding to comment on the merits of the case which was an appeal against an interim order in a case pending adjudication, and has therefore prevented the free, fair and uninfluenced adjudication of the suit. The petitioners have expressed serious apprehensions that the said observations of the High Court would cause in the trial of their pending suit. According to the petitioners, the Court has influenced and prevented the fair and unbiased adjudication of the their Suit , by holding that the Civil Suit was barred on account of bar of jurisdiction of Civil Court under Section 149 of the Maharashtra Regulation and Town Planning Act, 1966 despite the contrary view taken time and again by both the Supreme Court and the Bombay High Court. In the present case the Petitioners despite having acquired part approval for proposal dated 19.06.2018 from the Municipal Commissioner on 07.02.2020 and pending only the NOC from MCZMA, a notice was issued against them notice u/s 53(1) MRTP Act thereby leading the Petitioner to rightly apprehend that the alleged offending structure of the suit building will be demolished. The petitioners have contended that the High Court has found fault with the Petitioners in not filing an application under Section 44 of the MRTP Act, while failing to appreciate that such application can be filed as a matter of right at any point in time after issuance of the notice under 53(1) of the MRTP Act. According to the petitioners, the High Court also lost sight of the fact that the Notice u/s 53(1) of the MRTP Act dated 24.10.2020 was given impetus by virtue of a motivated complaint which was only filed because the complainant is determined to cause harm to the property of the Petitioners as his illegal demands were not met. The notice issued by the respondents under Section 53 (1) of the MRTP Act, forming the basis of the present lis is in itself null and void, non est, vague, lacking material particulars inasmuch as it does not indicate the alleged unauthorized development undertaken and tritely put, is wholly incapable of being acted upon and by no stretch of imagination can the same be said to be sound in law. The special leave petition has been filed by AOR D.Kumanan and drawn by Prashant Sivarajan & Ujjawal Anand Sharma ,Partners at Lawmen & White.Next Storylast_img read more

Arizona governor Doug Ducey slams Hacienda HealthCare, where vegetative patient was impregnated

first_imgCredit: Office of Governor Doug Ducey(PHOENIX) — The governor of Arizona weighed in on the case in which a nurse at a Phoenix health care facility was arrested after a patient who is in a vegetative state gave birth to a child.Governor Doug Ducey posted a thread of tweets slamming Hacienda HealthCare, the company that employed licensed practical nurse Nathan Sutherland and which runs the facility where the woman was being cared for.Sutherland was arrested Tuesday after investigators obtained a DNA sample that matched the DNA of the child that was born at the facility.“I am sickened by what’s been disclosed about the rape and subsequent childbirth by a disabled woman at Hacienda HealthCare. And, I’m appalled by the latest disclosure about the senior leadership’s behavior and the lack of action by its board of directors,” Ducey wrote in the first in a series of six tweets.He called for the company’s senior leadership “to be completely replaced.”“My confidence level in that institution and its leadership is zero, and our job now is to ensure that the individuals in their facilities are safe,” he wrote in another tweet.He suggested that the state may take action but did not specify.“Now, we are looking into what can be done to hold this facility and board accountable for violating the public’s trust and failing in their responsibility so badly. Our agencies are reviewing the best course of action, but I can assure you Arizona will not tolerate this,” he wrote in the concluding tweet.Hacienda HealthCare did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.Sutherland, 36, was booked into the Maricopa County Jail without bond on Tuesday after being charged with one count of vulnerable adult abuse and one count of sexual assault.Sutherland had worked at Hacienda HealthCare since 2011, police said.The patient at the center of this scandal “has significant intellectual disabilities as a result of seizures very early in her childhood,” according to a statement from her family’s attorney, John Micheaels.“She does not speak but has some ability to move her limbs, head and neck,” he said in a statement this week. “Their daughter responds to sound and is able to make facial gestures. The important thing is that she is a beloved daughter, albeit with significant intellectual disabilities. She has feelings, likes to be read to, enjoys soft music, and is capable of responding to people she is familiar with, especially family.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
