LURCH TO THE RIGHT Alarming number of aboriginals in Canada’s prisons: watchdog

 

===================================================

Howard Sapers, in charge of monitoring the Correctional Service of Canada, said in a special report that aboriginals made up 4 percent of Canada’s population but 23 percent of inmates in federal jails.

The aboriginal population of Canada’s prisons has grown by 43 percent in the last five years alone.

Prison officials regularly failed to follow rules that require the social histories of indigenous prisoners to be taken into account when dealing with security and discipline.

Sapers said aboriginal offenders served disproportionately more of their sentence behind bars before first release, were more likely to return to prison on revocation of parole and were disproportionately involved in security incidents inside jails.

LURCH TO THE RIGHT

[UK Interior Minister] Theresa May floats quitting European rights convention

 

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Britain should consider leaving the European Convention on Human Rights because [it says here] it interferes with the government’s ability to fight crime and control immigration, Home Secretary (interior minister) Theresa May said on Saturday.

May’s Conservative Party has long criticised the Strasbourg-based European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), which enforces the convention, as an encroachment on British sovereignty.

This view had been floated in newspapers a week ago but it was the first time May had spoken out in person so explicitly.

She has been accused of spearheading a Conservative “lurch to the right” following a humiliating defeat in a parliamentary by-election on March 1, when the party was beaten into third by the anti-Europe UKIP.

During the Eastleigh By-Election on the 28th February 2013, the party’s candidate Diane James polled the highest percentage and number of votes ever for a UKIP candidate with 11,571 votes, representing 27.8% of the vote.

UKIP finished in 2nd place, 4.26% (1,771 votes) behind the Liberal Democrats who retained the seat.

The Conservatives were pushed into 3rd place with a quarter of the vote and the Labour Party into 4th place with less than 10% of the popular vote.

Nightmare: System Forgets About Man Left in Solitary Confinement

 

___________________________________________________

A New Mexico prisoner who languished for nearly two years in solitary confinement –and was so neglected that he had to yank out his own tooth– has been awarded one of the largest federal civil rights settlements in history.

Stephen Slevin, 59, will be paid $15.5 million after Dona Ana County agreed to settle with the former inmate, who was jailed at the county detention center from 2005 to 2007 on a DWI arrest.

Those 22 months in solitary was an inhumane and hellish experience for Slevin: His toenails grew so long that they curled around his foot; he was denied showers, causing fungus to form on his skin; and he developed bedsores.

Iraq: a display of declining US [World Tyrant] power

 

—————————————————

Iraq remains the subject of visceral polemic 10 years after George W. Bush and Tony Blair launched their misbegotten and mendaciously sold war of choice to remove Saddam Hussein and, by their lights, reshape the Middle East.

The invasion and occupation of Iraq unlocked forces with long-term consequences.  Given the staggering obtuseness that marked the entire enterprise one cannot be sure, but one assumes few of them were intended by its Anglo-American[World Tyrant] artificers.

The devastation visited upon a country already made prostrate by wars, sanctions and tyranny did not so much shock and awe as offer a pitilessly public spectacle of the limits to US [World Tyrant] power ([poodle] Britain’s role as spear-carrier was a sideshow).

[ A PITILESSLY PUBLIC SPECTACLE OF THE LIMITS OF WORLD TYRANT POWER ]

No one is blind to the military might the US [World Tyrant] possesses in unique abundance.  But after Iraq there are real doubts –seemingly in America as well as the wider world– about its ability to use this power competently to shape intractable events 

The whole thrust of Iraq, by contrast, looks to have given a long-term boost to Islamists of all stripes.

This was evident *long before* the Arab spring upheavals that have made Islamism the new centre of political gravity in the region –and not just because Islamists have won all the elections held in Iraq.

Note:  The article caters to The World Tyrant’s version of its proxy war against the Syrian Arab Republic and the Syrian peoples.

Beyond that, it bases itself on the post (?)-imperialist notion that “Those boundaries [drawn arbitrarily by France and the UK after the fall of the Ottomans] were little more than lines in the sand, cynically drawn by sinking colonialists.”

By doing so, the article joins with the “staggering obtuseness” of The World Tyrant.

So why give the article publicity?

Because of its one overriding merit; it publicizes

THE PITILESSLY PUBLIC SPECTACLE OF THE LIMITS OF WORLD TYRANT POWER

and

DISPLAYS THE WORLD TYRANT’S DECLINING POWER !
