An undercover investigator managed to smuggle a razor, booze and copious amounts of drugs into the troubled Rikers Island jail even after the city said it had tightened security there, a report released Thursday revealed. A city Department of Investigations staffer masquerading as a correction officer sneaked an impressive array of illicit substances past clueless screeners at six separate Rikers buildings in September, the probe found. The list included 250 glassine envelopes of heroin, a bag with 24 strips of prescription narcotics and two fist-sized bags containing a total of a half-pound of pot. The undercover also smuggled in the razor blade and a 16-ounce clear plastic water bottle filled with 100-proof Pinnacle vodka.

Rikers Island inmate died after seven days alone in New York City cell
Cecily McMillan is an Occupy protester who was seized from behind by a goon thug cop–a goon thug with a long record of abuse of authority–by her boobs. One was badly bruised. Cecily McMillan’s elbow reflexively and instinctively came up, and Cecily was arrested for assaulting a goon thug. The goon thug was not arrested for sexually assaulting a young woman. False arrests of this sort are common in the US. Indeed, they are more common than justified arrests. The police and the courts are completely corrupted institutions that reek of injustice and evil. Cecily was locked up in Rikers Island without bail by the judge who sees his role as protecting the abuse of police and prosecutorial power. The judge would not allow evidence in behalf of Cecily to be presented to the jury. Nevertheless, the jurors, or 75% of them, understood that something was wrong and although they were coerced into convicting the young woman they sent a letter to the judge requesting that no prison time be imposed on Cecily.

FUN FACT: obviously the inmates were getting me STONED in Writer's, er, RIKERS Island. But DID YOU KNOW that they make hooch too? They just took the oranges, pineapple mulch, bread, and sugar packets, put it in a plastic tub, and within a WEEK we was getting BUZZED! However, it's not that common to have inmates making hooch. Weed is far more prevalent. Plus, inmates pretend to be on heroin ('keep') to get Methadone pills, which they sell in exchange for junk food.

Did you know there is an edible garden for inmates on Rikers Island in New York? Reoffending has dropped to 6% for those involved!! Compare that to 29% recidivism rate for those who don't garden!! Check out some more successful prison gardens in the link below. "These types of programs not only enhance the environment by increasing the green:asphalt ratio, but growing food near prison sites improves the nutritional intake of the inmates, as well as trains them for green jobs when they get out—a track that when followed has been proven to reduce the rate at which former inmates return to prison. One study in San Francisco showed that 29 percent of prisoners were re-arrested within four months of their release, while only 6 percent of those who partook in a gardening program were re-arrested."

I reacted in mad anger about the Cecily McMillan conviction yesterday. Partially because I was charged with the same thing many years ago during the LES squatter rebellion and her lawyer Marty Stolar got the charges dropped and what happened to her brought the anger of it all back. Before taking any big action on her case we should probably wait for the sentencing so we don't give them a reason to give her the max time in jail. That said, I am thinking ,and a non violent civil disobedience blockade of the main road into Rikers Island might be pretty effective and it would definitely send a strong message to the police state and the new mayor.

Simply boarding this bus was a feat in itself. If you think it sounds challenging to round up a group of hyperactive third-graders for a field trip, you should've seen the guards trying to get a bunch of loud-mouthed, drugged-out, furious female convicts to shut up, stand in line, and get on the bus.

As violent crime declines in New York, mayhem surges in the Rikers Island prison
When you lay your head on your soft pillow tonight in your nice, warm toasty home, you should remember 56-year old Jerome Murdough, former Marine who was homeless and mentally ill and died in Rikers Island in NYC. Why was he at Rikers? On a cold night, he chose to sleep in the stairwell of a building and he was arrested for trespassing. A lot of people see the homeless person on the street and think "bum" but you have no idea what that person has been through in their life. People are homeless for all kinds of reasons. Nobody ever thinks it will happen to them. Do you think when he was just a kid, Jerome Murdough ever thought it would happen to him? And that he would die because of it? Give that some thought.

The story of Jerome Murdough breaks my heart.

In the city we live in with no existing middle class. Please understand that the good Lord giveth and he takes it away as well ! Always count your blessings because one day you too can be homeless and lose everything ! God will bring you down to your knees if you refuse to be humble!!!

Mentally ill homeless vet 'baked to death' in scorching 100+°F NYC jail cell: According to four unnamed city officials, 56-year-old James Murdough reportedly did not open a vent in his cell that would’ve allowed for cool air to flow in and lower the temperature, something most inmates did. The officials also stated that no one checked on Murdough’s condition for hours, which constitutes a violation of standard procedure. Originally placed on Rikers Island for observation purposes, Murdough reportedly took anti-psychotic and anti-seizure medicine. He was previously charged with trespassing, and was located in the prison unit responsible for handling those with mental illnesses. The officials stated that Murdough’s medication potentially made him more susceptible to heat, while early reports from the autopsy conducted suggest he died of extreme dehydration or heat stroke. The medical examiner’s office, however, officially stated that further tests were necessary in order to pinpoint the cause of de ...

Criminals already get, free food, electricity, cable, internet, and to top if off they don't have to work or pay taxes. So yeah lets make jail less of a punishment.

Wait so I'm on the train just tryin to get my nap on when I see two guys sitting right across from the each other. Now I'm not sure what occurred before I got on but when one of the guys got up the other did a sonic/ superhero/ voohoo move in the others direction. This dude acted like he was pulling roots from the ground, raising his hands up until he looked like he was shooting fire through his hands. I had no clue we had superhero's riding the trains. I do know that if he tries to brings to that epic level of crazy over here or if I see powder or anything being blown my way, I'm going to jail. Call my mother and start sending those newport lights to Rikers Island. I'm so done right now.

Judge Mathis Launches PEER Prison Initiative Judge Greg Mathis is launching a Prisoner Initiative entitled PEER, standing for Prisoner Empowerment Education and Respect. Through the initiative, Judge Mathis will visit jails and prisons throughout the country to encourage inmates to change their lives. Motivated by his own experience as a troubled youth who overcame the challenges of being incarcerated, Judge Mathis will share his personal experiences and offer advice and encouragement to inmates. To date, the Judge has made PEER appearances at the Wayne County Jail in Detroit, where he was previously sentenced to serve nearly one year, the Fulton County Jail in Atlanta, GA and the State Correctional Institution at Chester, PA. He also spoke with the youth population at Rikers Island, NY and most recently visited Folsom State Prison in Folsom, CA. The Judge is scheduled to return back to NY to speak with the adult male population at Rikers as well as visit Sing Sing. Judge Mathis is strongly committed to r ...

Rikers Island is New York City's main jail complex, as well as the name of the 413.17-acre (1.672 km2) island on which it sits, in the East River between Queens and the mainland Bronx, adjacent to the runways of LaGuardia Airport. The island itself is part of the borough of the Bronx, though it i...
According to this month's Harper's magazine (Jan 2014): 55% of US gun retailers think "it is too easy for criminals to get guns in this country;" 7 out of 10 adolescents in solitary on Rikers Island have been diagnosed with a mental illness; L.A. Sheriff's Dept dogs bit 17 people in the first half of 2013, all of them black or Hispanic.

Update o the Jennifer story that I've been reporting on. They've inserted some sort of metal rod into her leg to correct the damage done to it during her domestic abuse beating earlier this week. The rod is going to be in there permanently. The brute that delivered the beating is locked up on Rikers Island where he will stay because he won't be able to raise $10,000 for bail. That's all I know at the moment.

I gotta SALUTE my homegirl, I ain't gonna blow her up on fb,, but she traveled all the way from NY to Ghana to visit her dude. Mind u they are both from out here but his roots are in Ghana . Most of yall just take the bus to see your man on Rikers Island she takes a international flight.
I love baseball but I'd rather wear a dress, put on blonde wig, and be thrown in the showers at Rikers Island then ever watch football. So with that being said I think I'm the most qualified person to make new rules to spice up the game of football. I think they should get rid of time outs. I think they should get rid of punts, and also I think they should be allowed to play as many guys at once as they like. If you got a play for 40 guys, send them in. If your team gets three successive first downs, they then have the option to run a play with two balls. Just saying, I'd watch that game.

Most Amazing... The Lizard lands in jail in 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' viral marketing (CBR) With all the buzz about the various villains headed our way in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2", one name has been curiously absent: Curt Connors, alias the Lizard. Rhys Ifans’ reptilian menace was behind bars by the end of 2012′s "The Amazing Spider-Man", but what happens next? Will we learn more about his fate? If the sequel itself doesn’t answer the question, the movie’s viral marketing will. Yet another new Daily Bugle blog post has surfaced, this time informing us of the sad fate of Connors: “The trial of Dr. Curt Connors came to an end as the former geneticist for Oscorp Industries was found guilty on all twenty counts for which he was indicted, including the murder of NYPD Captain George Stacy. “Connors and his attorney, Anne Weying, were unable to convince the jury that he was not responsible for his deadly actions while transformed. His defense that he only injected himself with the serum that changed h ...

Inmate Abuse by Corrections Officers and the Legal Recourse Available New York Post: INMATE ABUSE; Contrary to popular belief, inmate abuse is not a thing of the past. Misconduct and excessive force against inmates still occur today in New York and throughout the country. Correctional facilities such as Rikers Island Prison have recently landed in the news for the egregious inmate abuse occurring within their walls. Rikers Island Inmate Abuse Lloyd Nicholson, a former corrections officer at the Rikers Island Prison Complex, was recently sentenced to six years in prison for a series of assaults that occurred while he worked as a guard. A jury found Nicholson guilty of orchestrating severe beatings of teenage inmates in an organized scheme he referred to as "The Program." Three other prison guards will soon stand trial for their roles as corrupt officials at the Robert N. Davoren Center, a complex within the Rikers Island facility.
