MOVE 9 PAROLE: Young Teen Gets Jaded By Justice System

Linn Washington Jr. | Last week’s Parole Board decision involving that MOVE trio (who’ve served time longer than the average third-degree murder case) underscores the pollution of politics in the justice system....The reason why so many people feel racism infects law, from police to judges to prisons, results from so many being jerked by the justice system so often. more...  1 Comments

Melissa Mark Viverito and Others Vote to Gentrify Harlem

Movement for Justice in El Barrio | To Our Fellow Members of the East Harlem Community,

On Wednesday, as predicted, the Council Member who is supposed to represent our district, Melissa Mark Viverito, voted in favor of the 125th Street rezoning plan despite fierce community resistance from across Harlem. Although we are not directly affected by this proposal, as Movement for Justice in El Barrio, community members of East Harlem, we are against the plans that the Council Members and city government
have to displace communities throughout Harlem. Movement for Justice in El Barrio was present to witness Melissa Mark Viverito in action at the
Chambers of the City Council.

Justice Is Just an Emotional Feeling: Judge Sabo’s 1995-97 Kangaroo Court

Michael Schiffmann, Journalists for Mumia | When on August 2, 1995 the defense tried to subpoena clerks from the Administrative Office of the Pennsylvania Courts as well as the Jury Commissioner of the County of Philadelphia as part of their PCRA petition argument that jury pools were not drawn “from a fair cross section of the community,” Sabo silenced attorney Wolkenstein and had her locked up in a jail cell instead. All subpoenas were quashed, leading attorney Jonathan Piper to state during the defense’s closing argument on September 11, 1995: “We have been precluded from presenting any evidence with respect to the racially-biased manner in which jury pools were selected in Philadelphia in 1982.” This is particularly stupefying since

Twelve and a half years later, the 3rd Circuit Court of appeals (1) denies Abu-Jamal relief on the question of racism in jury selection because of an alleged lack of defense data on the racial composition of the jury pool, the very question Wolkenstein tried to address when Sabo locked her up, and (2) declares that whatever Judge Sabo did during the PCRA hearings can no longer be part of any federal review, including his move to block the defense from getting hold of the data that the court now demands. more...  0 Comments
