Georgia prisons ‘out of control,’ rights group says, as FBI brutality probe deepens – Black Talk Radio Network™

The investigator was soft-spoken but relentless.

“Look at me and tell me that you were not in that gymnasium,” said

Trebor Randle, a Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent, sitting across a

small table from the corrections officer.

“And then what?” said Sgt. Christopher A. Hall, his voice a choked whisper. “What happens to me?”

A month earlier, in December 2010, Hall led an emergency response

team at Macon State Prison in central Georgia responding to a fight

between an inmate, Terrance Dean, and a guard. Hall’s team broke up the

fight, handcuffed Dean and took him into the prison gym. Dean emerged

with a massive head injury, comatose and clinging to life.

For weeks, Hall and the rest of his team maintained that Dean

“snatched away” from the officers holding him, then fell and hit his

head while running away. But in the videotaped interrogation of Hall by

Randle, viewed by The Huffington Post, the guard admitted the simple

truth: a handcuffed Dean was beaten by guards as punishment for

assaulting their fellow officer.

“I don’t think my guys meant to do it,” Hall said. “It just happened. They just went too far.”

Aotearoa: A Wider Perspective

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

Dancing With Palestinians

I grew up in Israel and served as an IDF officer. It took me years to realize that we had been brought up on lies, myths and propaganda and that Palestinians are no different from native Americans, blacks in S. Africa and other indigenous populations who were abused and dispossessed by European colonialism. Demolishing the Zionist myths and propaganda is the first step towards de-constructing the exclusionary colonial state and achieving historic justice and lasting peace.
