Growing old in prison after COVID-19

first_imgBy Major TilleryMajor Tillery is an innocent man who has spent 35 years in prison because gross prosecutorial and judicial misconduct led to his fraudulent conviction for murder in 1985. He has spent 20 years in solitary confinement. Major has become an advocate for prisoners’ rights against the injustice of the police and courts. He submitted this letter to Tear Down the Walls this month.This is the third time my block has been placed in isolation due to the Covid virus. I am myself a Covid survivor. I’m not blaming anyone about my situation besides Pharaoh Trump, and the poor care of the healthcare provider WellPath and their Dr. Little, who is a fifth-rate doctor at best. [Editor’s note: Dr. Paul Little and other medical staff at SCI Chester were named in a lawsuit for malpractice and misdiagnosis by a former inmate in February of this year.]This pandemic is very hard on everyone, prisoners and staff, and my block was hit the hardest. But for the elderly it is extremely hard, with lack of exercise, and only getting a half hour out of cell time alone for showers, kiosk, and phone. Your bed becomes a killer to your bones. The anxiety of knowing you can catch a virus that has no real cure can be hard to take — even at 70 years old. I trained my body over the years to work out, but this is a long lockdown.Just like in the streets there’s a lot of people who have gained “Covid weight” from being quarantined. I now experience post-Covid symptoms, such as shortness of breath, my bones hurt, not to mention fatigue at times. When I had Covid I was told I had to ride it out because there is no known cure. At least I can say here at Chester the administration makes an effort to try to have some in-cell activities.I recognize the need to prevent the spread of this virus, and the precautions that need to be taken. But when you have older people with other medical conditions like myself, lack of exercise, and isolation, stress, and plain old boredom can exacerbate your underlying conditions. The first lockdown was about five months ago, and this is the third lockdown for my block, so this is growing hard on all the men — regardless of age — on this block. But what can you do when you live in a country that elected Pharaoh for President.I will say this: At Chester the administration is always trying to contain the virus, even asking prisoners for input. But we need more outside time with social distancing because being cooped up in the cell without fresh air can be counterproductive.With this virus it’s like taking two steps up, then three steps back.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Two homicides linked to killing of psychiatrist who consulted on JonBenet case: Police

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(PHOENIX) — The killing of two paralegals has been tied to the recent murder of the notable forensic psychiatrist who worked on the JonBenet Ramsey case in Phoenix the day before, Arizona police said.Veleria Sharp, 48, and Laura Anderson, 49, were both shot about 2:15 p.m. on Friday near the law office where they worked as paralegals.One of the women was shot in the head and attempted to get help by flagging down a bus parked at a nearby intersection near the law firm the law firm Burt, Feldman, Greneir, whose offices are located on East 1st near North 75th Streets in the Old Town section of town.That woman was rushed to a local hospital and pronounced dead, according to a police release.Responding officers then found another woman who was wounded, police said.On Saturday, investigators in Scottsdale say the killings of Sharp and Anderson were tied to the murder of the psychiatrist, Steven Pitt.“Our investigation has determined that this double homicide is related to the shooting of Steven Pitt on May 31, 2018, in Phoenix,” they said.Pitt, a 59-year-old father of two children, was found shot to death outside his Phoenix office on Thursday night.Cops noted that there they were responding to reports of a third homicide on Saturday a neighborhood known as The Greens at Gainey Ranch — some 17 minutes away from the law office crime scene.So far, it’s unclear if it is related to the other three murders.He earned acclaim as a forensic psychiatrist who consulted with law enforcement on a number of high-profile cases, including the mysterious death of JonBenet Ramsey back in 1996.On Thursday, witnesses told Phoenix police they heard an argument between two people outside his office followed by gunfire, according to Phoenix ABC affiliate KNXV.A $1,000 reward has been offered for the capture of Pitt’s killer.Police describe the suspected shooter as a bald Caucasian man wearing a dark hat with a short brim.Steven Pitt & Associates is headquartered in Phoenix, but Pitt worked on a number of nationally known cases, including Ramsey’s murder. The murder of the 6-year-old beauty pageant competitor found dead in the basement of her family’s Boulder, Colorado, home has never been solved.Pitt was brought on by Boulder police and the district attorney to consult on the case in February 1997.In a 1999 profile of Pitt by the Phoenix New Times, centered around the Ramsey investigation, the psychiatrist was described as “a street-smart, openly ambitious wiseguy who seems most comfortable helping detectives sort out the psychopathology that has led someone — known or unknown — to commit a crime.”After Pitt’s consultation on the “Baseline Killer,” the suspect, Mark Goudeau, was convicted and sentenced to death in 2011 for nine murders.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

11 remain unaccounted for after deadliest wildfire in California history

first_imgJustin Sullivan/Getty Images(PARADISE, Calif.) — Eleven people remain unaccounted for in Northern California after the deadliest wildfire in state history ravaged communities and claimed 85 lives.At one time there were a thousand names on the list of people missing or unaccounted for in Butte County, where the Camp Fire swelled to more than 153,000 acres over 18 days and destroyed nearly 14,000 homes before firefighters fully contained it on Nov. 25.The Butte County Sheriff’s Office, which released the revised list late Monday night, now says it has located 3,175 individuals who were reported missing at some point during the blaze.The death toll was also revised down to 85 from 88, after medical examiners determined several bags of human remains believed to be of separate individuals were actually the same. The remains of 43 individuals have been positively identified while 39 others have been tentatively identified, according to the sheriff’s office.Most of the people who remain unaccounted for are from the town of Paradise, a bucolic community of 27,000 people in the Sierra Nevada foothills that was virtually decimated by the Camp Fire. Many of the deaths occurred there.Melissa Schuster, a Paradise town council member, said her house was among those leveled by the Camp Fire.“Our entire five-member council is homeless,” Schuster said in a Nov. 13 interview on ABC News’ “Start Here” podcast. “All of our houses have been destroyed.”“The entire community of Paradise is a toxic wasteland right now,” she added, holding back tears.The Camp Fire ignited Nov. 8 near Pulga, a tiny community in Butte County nestled in the Plumas National Forest. That same day, the Woolsey Fire ignited near the city of Simi Valley in Southern California’s Ventura County. Both blazes exploded as strong winds fanned the flames south.In all, the pair of wildfires laid waste to a total area of nearly 400 square miles before firefighters contained the flames last month.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

West Point cadet missing after extensive search, took assault rifle with him

first_imgfdastudillo/iStock(NEW YORK) — A U.S. Military Academy cadet has gone missing and officials at the West Point campus believe he has taken a service weapon with him, according to officials.The unnamed cadet, a member of the 2021 graduating class, has been missing since Friday evening. Officials said he was last seen at about 5:30 p.m. at West Point, and an “extensive” search has already been done by military, federal, state and local agencies.West Point said an M4 rifle was also missing, and presumed in possession of the cadet, but they are “not believed to have any magazines or ammunition.”There is no indication the cadet poses a threat to the public, officials said, but they are worried he poses a threat to himself.“I want to thank the local and state law enforcement agencies and emergency services for their tireless support,” Lt. Gen. Darryl Williams, 60th superintendent of the U.S. Military Academy, said in a statement. “We will continue to search with all means possible, on and off West Point. Safely locating the Cadet remains our focus and number one priority.”Authorities said the cadet was supposed to compete in a military skills competition over the weekend, but did not show up for the initial road march.Military Police, New York State Police and the Orange County Sheriff’s Department have been involved in the search. The Coast Guard also began searching the coast line for the missing cadet Sunday morning.A state police helicopter, drones and K-9s have also been used in the search.West Point is about an hour north of New York City on the banks of the Hudson River. About 4,000 cadets attend the military school. Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Lack of diversity threatening IT

first_imgLack of diversity threatening ITOn 28 Jan 2003 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. The ability of the UK to compete economically will be threatened ifcompanies fail to increase the proportion of women employees within theworkforce, a report released today finds. The study by the Women in IT Champions Group, finds that the lack of womenat senior positions is particularly marked. Based on initial research of the champions group member companies, thereport, Achieving workforce diversity in the e-business on demand era, alsoshows that retaining women is a critical issue within IT and IT-relatedcareers. Although 36 per cent of new hires in the first quarter of 2002 were women,in the same period, they accounted for 46 per cent per cent of all leavers. Women are leaving not only to have children, but doing so later in theircareers meaning that few are fulfilling their potential progression up thecareer ladder, resulting in an under-representation of women at senior levels. The report calls for further research by government and academic bodies intothe issue of workforce retention and the promotion of a flexible, balancedbusiness culture. Rebecca George, chairwoman of Women in IT Champions Group, which publishedthe study at the third annual Women in IT conference in London, said:”Successful workforce diversity initiatives are a key focus for manycompanies. But such initiatives must be matched by everyday practices thatsupport a flexible work environment that is attractive to working women.” www.intellectuk.org Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more
