Press TV is conducting interviews in Atlanta, Georgia from June 12 - 14 to give African Americans an opportunity to discuss racial discrimination in the 21st century. The invitation to be interviewed is extended to African Americans and to others who have knowledge about the subject. People who are interested in being interviewed should contact Dr. Randy Short, who lives in the District of Columbia. He is the project narrator and can be reached through his Facebook account at this link http://www.facebook.com/randy.short1
More information about the Press TV interviews (being conducted in Washington, DC, New York, NY, and Atlanta, Georgia) is available at this link
Mentally challenged people of all races are imprisoned for inappropriate conduct caused by mental illness. African Americans have a higher rate of incarceration than whites and Hispanics. Mentally ill people are sometimes brutalized and killed by police officers and neighbors in their communities. The television interviews with Press TV may be used to discuss justice issues facing African Americans and other concerns. I look forward to exposing the secret arrest and wrongful death of Larry Neal, my mentally disabled brother, to the international community through Press TV.
It is wrong that my family is denied any records and accountability for Larry's arrest and murder in Memphis Shelby County Jail in 2003 and that my avenues of communication (phones and computers) are monitored and controlled to prevent wide disclosure about such injustices. When a reporter called me last week, she reached a fake recording saying that my phone was out of service (678)531-0262. It was interesting when she called to report to Dr. Short that she could not reach me by phone while he was on the phone with me. I was glad for them to witness what I report to the public continuously - I am censored, terrorized, and practically a prisoner to hide Larry Neal's murder and because along with your help, I strive to give ASSISTANCE TO THE INCARCERATED MENTALLY ILL. Blessings!
Mary Neal, director of Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill
