DOG JUSTICE, by Mary Neal

Too bad you weren't a dog, my brother
In my heart, I cried
Many more people would care about you
And wonder why you died

You had no spots or floppy ears
You never fetched a ball
Instead, you were a human being
But poor, black, and flawed

You died in jail for mental illness
I know down in my heart
Your death would be investigated
If only you could bark

Dog deaths get swift justice
Their abusers are sent to jail
Poor Mama would have closure now
If you'd had a wagging tail

But you were made in God's image
And some day, I have no doubt
The mentally ill and American dogs
Will have at least equal clout

See you next month, when I hope you will
COME to the HUMAN RIGHTS FOR PRISONERS
MARCH
IN ATLANTA, GA ON MAY 16!
http://my.nowpublic.com/world/human-rights-prisoners-march-planned-mid-may-atlanta

JAIL IS THE LAST THING MENTAL
PATIENTS NEED ... AND TOO OFTEN, JAIL IS THE
LAST THING THEY EXPERIENCE. Please join us in our
quest to decriminalize mental illness in America.
No one should be punished for having a disability.

IMPORTANT QUESTION FOR YOU

If you saw your neighbor had a dog trapped in its
doghouse 23 hours every day with the door blocked
so that the dog could not even SEE outside, and if the
dog whinned or barked for its freedom, you see your
neighbor go and spray pepper spray in the trapped
animal's eyes, or tie him tight to a tree - so tight that
the animal could not move an inch without choaking
himself to death (like restraint chairs), how long would
you see this abuse before you called Animal Control
and lodge a complaint against your neighbor and
save that poor animal?

That is
how thousands of America's most vulnerable
citizens will spend the next 23 hours today - and every
day, until YOU demand change.  60% of inmates in
solitary confinement are our mental patients.  They
just don't seem to "act right."  Here is a VIDEO to give
you an inside view of life in "the hole":

Yes, my mother's son was treated like a dog, and he
died.  In case you wonder, most of what I do is for her.
It is too late to help Larry, but along the justice quest
trail,  we found the way littered with OTHER LARRYS
who need help avoiding Larry
s' fate.  Here's one such
young man, who needs YOUR help today.

TAKE A LOOK AT THIS LINK!

Consider adding the link to your email signature  to automatically tell all your friends about Jeremy Smith.  His mother, Gina, counts on YOU to help deliver her paranoid schizophrenic son from hell in solitary confinement for inappropriate acts arising out of his mental illness.  In fact, Jeremy was sentenced to eight (8) years imprisonment for a simple assault!  Extended solitary confinment can induce mental illness in healthy people; imagine what life is like for poor Jeremy, who has been mentally ill since childhood!   Please help Jeremy Smith get
duo   DOG JUSTICE! 


                                                                     Jail

If you cannot come to the Human Rights for
Prisoners March in Atlanta on May 16, then just
keep doing what you can to make the world a
better place wherever in the world you are.
Remember, no one can take YOUR place.  Your
God-given purpose is uniquely your own, and
I wish you much success in every good work!
                                LISTEN!

Someone is putting this poem to music for us.
That should be nice, and it may help others to
know about the circumstances of our sick
people, who should be in treatment, not prison.
The non-violent should be released under
Kendra's Law (assisted living plus enforced
treatment), and the violent offenders who are
mentally ill should be hospitalized to serve out
their entire sentences with no early release by
psychiatrists.  Many people used to be
 hospitalized for decades, like prisoners are
 sentenced to prison for decades.  Early hospital
release sometimes endangers patients and
 communities.  Hospitals cost no more than prison.


  duo   DOG JUSTICE! 


While you are here,
PLEASE READ OUR PETITION for USDOJ to do what it
gets our tax money to do - protect the rights of
institutionalized persons, like sick folks in jails and
mental institutions.  They refused to do that for Larry,
rendering him as lower than Michael Vick's dogs.  Thus,
the poem.  See the signators' comments petitioning for
an investigation into the Wrongful Death of Mentally Ill
Heart Patient in Shelby County Memphis Jail under
Secret Arrest.  Many of them need your help, also:

Thank you for demanding that sick Americans have
