At least three dozen others who were held in the CIA's secret prisons overseas appear to be missing as well. Efforts by human rights organizations to track their whereabouts have been unsuccessful, and no foreign governments have acknowledged holding them

THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION USDOJ was the one under which my handicapped brother, Larry Neal, was secretly detained and died in Memphis Shelby County Jail.

The Bush Admin. USDOJ was lawless. The torture memos detail human rights abuses that were hidden until now.

A. Gonzales, former attorney general in the Bush administration, resigned his position in disgrace after illegal practices were uncovered regarding hiring and firing DOJ attorneys according to their political parties, etc.

In 2008, Gonzales was indicted in Willacy, TX as a PRISON PROFITEER - profiting by withholding USDOJ investigations regarding PRISON TORTURE within USA correctional facilities - AMERICAN CITIZENS and family members of taxpayers were being killed and abused with no questions asked. His case never went to trial.

It is no wonder Larry Neal's death was denied investigation and accountability by the USDOJ. Many of the people who were supporters of the terror in offshore camps are still in place.

The USDOJ which issued TORTURE orders for overseas camps is still withholing truth and due process of law about Larry. The USDOJ is responsible for upholding the civil rights of prisoners in America, and for years, the prisoners have been treated inhumanely - folks right in your cities! Is there any wonder why we need to march for their humane treatment? IS THERE ANY WONDER WHY THE HUMAN RIGHTS FOR PRISONERS MARCH IS CENSORED? Please help by grabbing this link and posting it to all your groups and friends. I was cut off from Yahoo groups after Yahoo bounced over 1,100 of my email messages from prisoner activist groups. THEY ARE TRYING TO CONTAIN INFORMATION ABOUT PRISON TORTURE WITHIN AMERICA, JUST LIKE THEY DID IN THE OVERSEAS PRISON CAMPS. HELP AND COME TO THE MARCH IF YOU CAN. If you cannot come to Atlanta next Saturday, pray for us and help post the notices. They cannot censor us all!


Inmates WITHIN America are being tortured, verbally abused, and some are killed - American citizens, including the mentally ill and also children who were tried as adults. See the evidence at the link above.

The featured news at the American flag above states that DOZENS of prisoners are missing in CIA custody. Former President George W. Bush publicly acknowledged the CIA program in September 2006, and transferred 14 prisoners from the secret jails to Guantanamo. Many other prisoners, who had "little or no additional intelligence value," Bush said, "have been returned to their home countries for prosecution or detention by their governments."

Bush did not reveal their identities or whereabouts - information that would have allowed the International Committee for the Red Cross to find them [IF THEY ARE LIVING].

Naturally, any government that does such things probably thinks it is no big deal to do likewise to a mental patient who became a nusiance to police. Maybe it will be no big deal for YOU to come up missing some day, also.


When my family insisted that Larry Neal's death should have records and accountability from Shelby County Jail in Memphis, Tennessee, after this handicapped patient was arrested probably for singing loud outside, the USDOJ helped to cover up Larry's death.

Because his family will not JUST FORGET ABOUT LARRY NEAL, the USDOJ allows Mary Neal to be stalked online and in person without police help when I call 911.

The USDOJ hides the truth -- that agency ALLOWED Shelby County Jail to perjure itself in federal court when seeking release from federal overview in 2006! Shelby County omitted disclosing to the USDOJ anything about the death of an inmate named Larry Neal, and the USDOJ accepted the lie - KNOWING IT WAS A LIE BECAUSE THE USDOJ AND I HAD COMMUNICATED EXTENSIVELY ABOUT LARRY'S DEATH IN SHELBY COUNTY JAIL IN THE MAIL!

Please help us to help American prisoners. Help fight censorship. Help post the notice to the Human Rights for Prisoners March on May 16 in Atlanta

Please respond if you see this comment. You will see on my YouTube video why I ask you to do that. Sometimes my comments only show from my own URL.


SEE THE FOI REQUEST I sent to the new USDOJ on May 7 - if they let you. The data disappeared twice since I posted the copy of the FOI Request to the USDOJ at NowPublic last night. I put a link to the letter at my comment at Care2 News and I do not see the link now!

I will let you know if the USDOJ has CHANGED!

My sad feeling is that if they are looking for these missing prisoners they might have to get a shovel. But remember the United States abides by the Geneva Convention (as long as it is convenient and the citizenry is not in a hysterical outcry against a most likely manufactured terrorist attack) We also are not supposed to condone torture done for us by others, that does not make our hands any cleaner.

Thank you, Mary. Oboy---perhaps they should have tatooed their ARMS with numbers--sadly, the Nazi régime was a model of impersonal efficiency...bureaucracy SUCKS--it dehumanises EVERY one. [A number, not a name, e.g.] Namaste!

The article quotes a New York law professor as saying about the dozens of missing men:

"Until the U.S. government clarifies the fate and whereabouts of these individuals, these people are still disappeared, and disappearance is one of the most grave international human rights violations," said Margaret Satterthwaite, a law professor at New York University. "We clearly don't know the story of everyone who has been through the program. We need to find out where they are and what happened."

Well, we finally know where my poor brother is, but the USDOJ and the jail they protected don't want us to know what happened. I think they need to get the mentally ill people out of prison and make better use of the jail space for some folks who should be there.

Thank you, Care2 News Network for this avenue to publish.

Thanks Care2 friends and fellow members! You pushed this article to Front Page. Maybe highlighting this story will help those prisoners get home if they are alive. If they were murdered like my brother was, maybe it will help their families get the information they need for closure. To live with question marks about the fate of someone you loved is very cruel.

Thank you Mary! The abuses that people suffer from the people who are supposed to uphold the constitution is phenomenal. Kudos to you for continuing to put their crimes in the forefront....

Thank you, Cynthia. If/when the USDOJ shows that it will tolerate no more police brutality and will cover up no more crimes done by persons who are charged with keeping the peace and guarding prisoners, we can hope for Change. In previous years, law enforcement and prison guards have had no accountability. That is the problem.

There are 2.3 million prisoners in the USA, and each one likely has 10 relatives and close friends who care about their fair treatment while incarcerated, regardless of their guilt or innocence. Additionally, there is a multitude of people who care about prisoners' treatment because they are Christians or another religion or they have a strong interest in human rights. That equals about 30 million people who believe prison sentences should be served WITHOUT TORTURING OR MURDERING THE INMATES.

I believe there is a need for more unity among prisoner activists and human rights activists and the families and communities in order to stop the abuse of prisoners WITHIN the USA. Much of the prison industry is in the hands of astute business persons. Like all businesses, they want growth! With the percentage of Americans serving time growing each year, there is no telling when inmate treatment or police brutality will have personal meaning for you. I thank all of you for showing that this issue is important to you.

Hello! I'm on TV tonight. Please watch and participate. We will be live streaming to talk about the upcoming HUMAN RIGHTS FOR PRISONERS MARCH IN ATLANTA, MAY 16.

The show is hosted by V-Man, director of The Campaign for Victory over Violence. We will be on air TONIGHT, May 12, from 9:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. EST. Tune in by computer at

YOUR input is invited. Call in with questions and comments at 404-892-5614.

Our march will say to America's decision makers:

"We want a just system of justice - not one driven by greed of prison profiteers. We do not want a justice system where private citizens and institutionalized persons can be brutalized or killed by police or prison guards without investigation and accountability. We want mental patients treated in hospitals or in community treatment, not imprisoned for behavior they cannot help."
