Chicago, Crime, and Jail: Chicago Holds lts First Jail-Wide Voting Process For Inmates@balleralert DOC INMATES CAN NOW VOTE IN CHICAGO HEADLINES Chicago Holds Its First Jail-Wide Voting Process For Inmates - Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Chicago has created the first-ever jail-wide, in-person voting process for inmates, and their votes are secured for official ballots. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On March 10, Cook County Jail volunteers from the organization Chicago Votes assisted with setting up ballots for Illinois’ early voting for the Gubernatorial primary election, which will take place March 20. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But, the process isn’t open to every inmate. It only allows those who are in police custody awaiting trial, on parole or probation with a completed sentence to vote, according to Illinois State law. There are 94 percent of inmates at Cook County jail who are able to vote, excluding those who are convicted of a crime and felons. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The temporary ballots were proposed by state representative Juliana Stratton this past February. In addition to this new process, Stratton would also like for prisoners to be notified once their right to vote is restored upon their release from jail. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As of now, Cook County and Lake County are the only two Illinois jails participating in this process, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Fake, Family, and Life: Justice Is Served: White Man Gets Life Irn Prison Unarmed Black Man In Fake "Neighborhood Watch" Incident For Murdering @balleralert Justice Is Served: White Man Gets Life In Prison For Murdering Unarmed Black Man In Fake “Neighborhood Watch” Incident - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Back in 2016, a North Carolina man, claiming to be part of “neighborhood watch,” called 911 to warn the operators that he was going to kill the “hoodlums” in his neighborhood. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I’m on neighborhood watch. I am going to have the neighborhood meet these hoodlums out here racing up and down the street,” Chad Copley said to the emergency operator. “It’s 1 in the morning. There’s some devil in them. They have firearms and we’re going to secure our neighborhood. If I was you, I would send PD out here as quickly as possible,” later adding, “I’m going to kill them.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After his conversation with the 911, Copley fired his gun and struck 20-year-old KourenRodneyBernardThomas. He then redialed 911 to explain the incident, claiming one of the boys brandished a gun. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, upon arrival, officials found an unarmed Thomas with a gunshot wound. He was quickly taken to a local hospital, where he was then pronounced dead. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Shortly after the incident, Thomas’ friend explained that their actions were innocent and completely opposite of Copley’s claims. In fact, David Walker said he and Thomas tried to get into a party on Copley’s block, but when they couldn’t get immediate access, they decided to leave. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While Walker’s story was slightly different from Copley’s, the end result was the same-Thomas was shot. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ During the trial, Copley, who the family attorney named ‘George Zimmerman 2.0’, maintained he fired in self-defense against the group of armed men. However, after a cross-examination, Copley admitted that he saw no gun and that there wasn’t even a neighborhood watch. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As a result, Copley was found guilty on first-degree murder charges and sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Jay, Jay Z, and Meek Mill: JAY-Z Pens Report In Support Of Meek Mill: "Probation ls A Trap And We Must Fight For Meek And Everyone Else Unjustly Sent To Prison" @balleralert JAY-Z Pens Report In Support Of Meek Mill: "Probation Is A Trap And We Must Fight For Meek And Everyone Else Unjustly Sent To Prison" - blogged by @baetoven_ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In an opinion piece for the NewYorkTimes titled, “The Criminal Justice System Stalks Black People Like Meek Mill," JAYZ outlined flaws in the criminal justice system and continued his support of his Roc Nation artist in the wake of Meek’s recent prison sentence. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Jay-Z begins by arguing that "For about a decade, [Meek]'s been stalked by a system that considers the slightest infraction a justification for locking him back inside." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "What’s happening to MeekMill is just one example of how our criminal justice system entraps and harasses hundreds of thousands of black people every day," the "4:44" artist wrote. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Probation is a trap and we must fight for Meek and everyone else unjustly sent to prison," he continued. "It’s time we highlight the random ways people trapped in the criminal justice system are punished every day. The system treats them as a danger to society, consistently monitors and follows them for any minor infraction — with the goal of putting them back in prison." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Jay-Z concluded the piece by directing readers to Color of Change, an organization that advocates for courts to treat people on parole or probation in Philadelphia more fairly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The music mogul, who previously called Meek's sentence "unjust and heavy-handed" also stopped his show in Dallas last week to denounce Meek's two to four-year prison sentence.

Anaconda, Dad, and Family: 2-Year-Old Denied Life-Saving Kidney Transplant Because of Dad's Probation Violation @balleralert 2-Year-Old Denied Life-Saving Kidney Transplant Because of Dad’s Probation Violation – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A life-saving procedure has been delayed for a 2-year-old boy, who was born prematurely without functioning kidneys, because his dad violated his probation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, a kidney transplant was scheduled for Oct. 3, just days after the child’s father, who was a 100 percent perfect match for his son, was arrested for violating his probation. Anthony Dickerson was arrested and charged with possession of a firearm. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Prior to his release, Emory Hospital, where the scheduled surgery was set to take place, sent a letter to Gwinnett County jail, saying, “Mr. Dickerson is currently in custody for a parole violation. If Mr. Dickerson could be escorted to Emory for blood work and a pre-operative appointment tomorrow, September 29, we will be able to continue with the scheduled surgery.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, once Dickerson was released, that’s when things took a turn for the worse. The hospital delayed the procedure, saying they needed to make sure Dickerson was complying with the terms of his parole for the next three months before they could proceed with the transplant. However, the family believes that the violation shouldn’t delay the process if the donor is healthy and clean, as it has become more urgent after AJ, the 2-year-old, suffered a stroke. But, his dad will not be re-evaluated by the hospital until January 2018 “after the receipt of his completed documentation.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “It’s about my son,” AJ’s mother said. “He’s been through a lot. It’s like we’ve been waiting on this. And Dad making a mistake shouldn’t affect what he wants to do with our son,” adding that January may be too late for her young son. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now, the couple says their only option is to get on the wait list for kidney transplants.
