‘Forgiveness and mercy’ — for whom?

first_imgThe writer of the following letter is imprisoned in Massachusetts.As the month of October began, an extraordinary event was unfurling in a Texas courtroom. At least that’s how the mainstream media was reporting it. However,  for people of color and other oppressed individuals, this was a familiar scene. In front of the entire country, Botham Jean’s younger brother pleaded with the court for an opportunity to hug the very same policewoman who had just been convicted of murdering his brother in cold blood.This single act of forgiveness and mercy instantaneously was hailed by the media as proof of humanity and justice in action. Yet I watched stubbornly through clenched hands, and couldn’t help but harken back to another tragedy which ended with similar results: the mass murder in Charleston by the terrorist Dylan Roof [in 2015]. Once again, the family and congregation of the slain gifted the perpetrator with forgiveness and appeals for leniency. And though I recognized the wisdom of their grace, I question the hypocrisy of a society which praises mercy for the white body while simultaneously condemning with enthusiasm the bodies of the poor, Black and Brown.Time and time again, whenever these acts of nobility are displayed, we cheer and share in compassion this excellent example of humanity. Somehow though, such acts only seem to originate from the perspective of the oppressed and victims of tyranny, while the halls of so-called justice remain cold and without any sense of compassion. Our criminal justice system is cruel and punitive beyond respectability, and whenever a push to repair this broken system is raised, the opposition to such legislation retorts just as cruelly. Compassion is lost and these great examples of humanity at work are forgotten. So I ask: Why is it when the full weight of the police-state murders an unarmed Black man do we cheer for the victim’s benevolence and mercy? Why do we extol  the virtues of a small congregation, yet continue to require and demand so much less from an entire system that is responsible for the lives of so many? Too often we come upon an old man getting released from over three decades of false imprisonment, saying he holds no malice toward those responsible for his incarceration, despite little to no reparation or accountability, and we admire his powers of forgiveness. Why is it always the Black body, the oppressed collective, or the burdened portion who is cheered for their clemency, while we praise the criminal justice system for its brutality? It seems mercy and justice are only available when the destruction is a poor, Black or Brown body, and is only distributed to the white and privileged. For once, we have the chance to bring our sentiment and our policies into alignment. On Oct. 8, the Massachusetts legislature held open hearings for Sen. Joseph Boncore  and Rep. Jay Livingstone’s identical bills, “An Act to Reduce Mass Incarceration,” S826 and H3358 respectively, regarding parole eligibility for those who have served 25 years or more in prison. Massachusetts currently incarcerates the second-highest percentage of life without parole prisoners in the United States, trailing only behind Louisiana. Despite representing itself as a bastion of progressiveness, it is actually quite cruel in its practice. These bills, however, present an opportunity for our institutions to finally reflect our society’s beliefs. It’s time our systems start to represent for everyone the values we so passionately praise in its citizens and enact some evidence-based policies. We must become the better angels of our nature and demand our government and institutions follow the lead of its people. Spread the word and contact Sen. Boncore and Rep. Livingstone to lend your support to ensure these bills get passed. Then, and only then, will our acts of compassion not be in vain.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Jamie Dulle, 41, died March 11, from injuries sustained when her car was struck from behind by a vehicle whose owner was later charged with intoxication assault.Her colleagues in the office of Campus Life said she was a friend and confidant.“Jamie brought light and joy into a room,” said Crystal Page, who was her administrative assistant. “She cared deeply for her students and friends and my life and so many of her students will agree, is better because she was in it.”Page said Dr. Dulle had an infectious laugh, was fierce and was dedicated to bettering the lives of many people.Her death at the start of spring break stunned many who knew her. jamie dulle was the @TCU angel. i could never possibly express how much love i have for this woman— Taylor (@tayy_alexiss) March 15, 2019Gabriel Glaser, a junior education major, had Dulle as an advisor.

Luxembourg: RSF condemns LuxLeaks convictions on appeal

first_img Ten RSF recommendations for the European Union News RSF and 60 other organisations call for an EU anti-SLAPP directive News Organisation RSF_en News LuxembourgEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalistsProtecting sources Conflicts of interestJudicial harassmentEconomic pressureWhistleblowersFreedom of expression Raphaël Halet, Edouard Perrin, Antoine Deltour and their lawyers in front of Luxembourg’s court of appeal on March 15th, 2017 March 15, 2017 Luxembourg: RSF condemns LuxLeaks convictions on appeal Follow the news on Luxembourg Reporters Without Borders (RSF) regrets today’s iniquitous and disturbing decision by a Luxembourg appeal court to impose a suspended prison sentence and fines on the two “LuxLeaks” whistleblowers who exposed Luxembourg’s gigantic system of tax avoidance for multinationals.Even if the appeal court’s sentences were slightly less than those handed down at the original trial, they send a strong intimidatory message.Former PricewaterhouseCoopers employees Antoine Deltour and Raphaël Halet, and Edouard Perrin, the journalist who published their leaks, had sought their acquittal. But the court gave Deltour a six-month suspended jail sentence and fine of 1,500, and Halet a fine of 1,000 euros. Only Perrin was acquitted, as he was at the original trial.“This decision is iniquitous and disturbing,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “The trial should not have taken place because the information revealed by the LuxLeaks case was clearly in the public interest. Who can claim that the public does not have the right to be told about the tax optimization methods used by leading multinationals and the preferential treatment they get from certain governments?“The trade secrets directive adopted by the European Parliament in April 2016 has a clause that refers to article 11 of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights protecting journalists, their sources and the ‘freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart information and ideas without interference by public authority.’ At the very least, Luxembourg’s justice system should have accepted this principle.”The appeal court’s decision is not worthy of Luxembourg or its ranking in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index – 15th out of 180 countries.

The Single Bench of Justice Prathiba M Singh has further held that students who appear for improvement exams do not automatically forfeit their previous scores and have the option of choosing the same if the scores achieved in improvement exams are lesser. The order has come in a plea moved by a Class XII student, Sanyam Gupta, who wanted to be treated at par with the regular students for the evaluation of his improvement exam in Business Studies which was cancelled in light of the COVID19. CBSE had opposed the said plea by submitting that it had prepared a separate scheme of evaluation for students who had opted to appear for an improvement exam. The scheme approved by the Supreme Court in its orders dated June 25 and 26, CBSE submitted, was only meant for regular students who did not get even a single chance to appear for the subjects that were cancelled. While highlighting that the students who appear for the improvement for the improvement exams have to forego the marks they had originally received, CBSE argued that the improvement students cannot be treated at par with the regular students who had approached the Supreme Court seeking the approval for a scheme. CBSE, therefore, submitted that the improvement students whose exams were cancelled have an option of either dropping the idea of an improvement exam and retain old score, or appear for the cancelled exam whenever it is conducted. After perusing the submissions as well as the previous judgments, the court observed that as per Bye-law No. 44 of the CBSE, CBSE issues marks-sheet only for the subject where the student takes the improvement exam and not a consolidated marks-sheet for all the subjects taking into account the previous year’s scores. Thus both the mark-sheets issued by the CBSE are valid. Therefore, the choice is open for such students to opt for whichever scores he/she wishes to. The court said: ‘Improvement examinations are not meant to punish a student for taking the said exam. It is meant to encourage a student who wishes to aspire for better academic growth or career prospects to study better and give another shot at the examination to improve his marks. Thus, in a case where the student scores better in the Improvement examination, reliance can be placed on the same. In the same breath, if a student scores lesser, the earlier marks where he/she had scored better is not taken away.’ On the issue of extending the scheme of the Supreme Court to improvement students as well, the court said: ‘The student having sacrificed one full year and also having improved his scores in two of the subjects to a much higher level than what he had scored in the previous year, in the opinion of the Court, there is no reason as to why he should be treated differently from the regular candidates. An improvement student is equally a victim of the pandemic just like a regular student. In the case of an improvement student like the Petitioner, the cancellation leads to a greater loss in as much as his entire effort and hard work for the last one year has been put to naught.’ The Petitioner in this case was represented by Mr Rishi Manchanda and Mr Arun Kumar.Click Here To Download Judgment[Read Judgment] Next Storylast_img read more

first_img Published 6:05 pm Friday, May 20, 2011 By Jaine Treadwell Print Article Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… Corley commended John Paul, Olivia Kyzar and Julie Johns for their dedication and commitment to seeing the cabbage project through.John Paul’s mom, Gena Waller, said the cabbage program teaches young people about what it takes to put a plant or seed in the ground and then care for it until it’s ready for the table.“My daughter, Emily, participated in the cabbage program when she was in third grade and grew a really big cabbage,” Waller said. “She didn’t win the scholarship but it was a great learning experience for her. John Paul has worked hard and learned a lot and strengthened his relationship with his adopted grandparents, Mary and James Hilburn.”John Paul’s cabbage was the largest of the three. It was four feet across and topped the scale at close to 30 pounds.He said that he put down landscape net before planting the cabbage to keep the weeds down and wood chips to keep the leaves off the dirt.“We put a fence around the cabbage to keep the armadillos from digging up the plant,” he said. “And we put burlap over the top to protect it from the sun because cabbage is a cool season plant.”Julie and Olivia planted their cabbage heads in pots, “big pots” and their cabbages grew and grew.“I had never grown cabbage before but I like to eat it,” Julie said. “My daddy helped me a lot because we had to water it a lot and put fertilizer on it. What I did most was water the cabbage and keep the weeds out of it. It grew pretty fast.”Julie said growing vegetables takes a lot of time but it’s worth it when they get ready to harvest “and eat.” She said her parents, Jamie and Leslie Johns, were a lot of help and gave her good advice on how to care for the cabbage. Now, that the cabbage has been harvested, Julie said she’s going to “take it to grandmama’s for her to cook it.”She hopes grandmama has a pot big enough to cook the cabbage and that there will be enough folks around to eat it all.Olivia’s cabbage was a big one, too, and she wasn’t all that surprised that it grew and grew.“We put the little cabbage in a big pot so it could grow big,” Olivia said. “We used a lot of Miracle Grow that makes plants grow a lot and fast. And, we had to put something on it to keep the bugs off. Then we just watered it and watered it.”The “we” was Olivia’s “Poppy” (Watson) and Kay Kyzar, who supported Olivia from the potting to the harvesting of her cabbage.“I needed a lot of help,” Olivia said, with a smile.Working with the plant every day like she did, Olivia became very fond of the cabbage head, so fond that she named  “Jake.”Now that ol’ Jake Cabbage Head is ready for another pot, the one where “he” will get steamed, Olivia said she’s ready to sit down to dinner with him – and a pone of cornbread and celebrate a job well done.John Paul’s monster cabbage is big enough to feed a log rollin’ so that’s what it will do. It will be “this” Sunday dinner at The Barn near Goshen. Those who dine there will know first hand the good things that come from the Bonnie Plants Cabbage Program.When Goshen third-grader John Paul Boswell stretched out next to his humongous cabbage, a shy smile spread slowly across his face, an indication that he was pleased with the cabbage head that he had produced from just a little knot of a cabbage.John Paul was one of three Goshen Elementary School students who participated in the 2011 Bonnie Plants Cabbage Program.Each year, Bonnie Plants distributes free cabbage plants to third-graders all across the country to foster an interest in gardening and the environment, said Jamie Culpepper of Bonnie Plants in Union Springs, which is the nation’s largest producer of vegetables and herbs. The farm started the cabbage-growing program in 1995 and it has grown ever since, pun intended.“A representative from Bonnie Plants comes to the schools in February and brings cabbage plants for all third-graders and speaks to them about the program,” said Dr. Wanda Corley, principal Goshen Elementary School. “The representatives do a really good job getting the students pumped up about the project. The students compete against other students across the state for a $1,000 scholarship. Although, third-grade students across the nation participate in the cabbage program, they only compete with students from their states.”Corley said all 85 third-graders at GES were given cabbages but only three will compete in the statewide cabbage competition.“Growing a cabbage like these takes a lot of guidance from parents or grandparents and it takes a lot of time,” Corley said. “And it’s rather costly because it probably takes a lot of Miracle Grow to produce cabbage like these.”Corley commended John Paul, Olivia Kyzar and Julie Johns for their dedication and commitment to seeing the cabbage project through.John Paul’s mom, Gena Waller, said the cabbage program teaches young people about what it takes to put a plant or seed in the ground and then care for it until it’s ready for the table.“My daughter, Emily, participated in the cabbage program when she was in third grade and grew a really big cabbage,” Waller said. “She didn’t win the scholarship but it was a great learning experience for her.

Then we just watered it and watered it.”The “we” was Olivia’s “Poppy” (Watson) and Kay Kyzar, who supported Olivia from the potting to the harvesting of her cabbage.“I needed a lot of help,” Olivia said, with a smile.Working with the plant every day like she did, Olivia became very fond of the cabbage head, so fond that she named “Jake.”Now that ol’ Jake Cabbage Head is ready for another pot, the one where “he” will get steamed, Olivia said she’s ready to sit down to dinner with him – and a pone of cornbread and celebrate a job well done.John Paul’s monster cabbage is big enough to feed a log rollin’ so that’s what it will do.

The farm started the cabbage-growing program in 1995 and it has grown ever since, pun intended.“A representative from Bonnie Plants comes to the schools in February and brings cabbage plants for all third-graders and speaks to them about the program,” said Dr. Wanda Corley, principal Goshen Elementary School. “The representatives do a really good job getting the students pumped up about the project. The students compete against other students across the state for a $1,000 scholarship. Although, third-grade students across the nation participate in the cabbage program, they only compete with students from their states.”Corley said all 85 third-graders at GES were given cabbages but only three will compete in the statewide cabbage competition.“Growing a cabbage like these takes a lot of guidance from parents or grandparents and it takes a lot of time,” Corley said. “And it’s rather costly because it probably takes a lot of Miracle Grow to produce cabbage like these.” Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?
