How One Mississippi Teen Went 1,266 Days Behind Bars Before Receiving a Mental Evaluation 1.1.2018 Truthout - All Articles
(Photo: Michael Gaida ) On Nov. 17, 2012, Tyler Haire was arrested in Vardaman, Mississippi, for attacking his father's girlfriend with a knife. Tyler, 16, had called 911 himself, and when they arrived, the local police found him seated quietly on a tree stump outside the home on County Road 433. The boy alternately said he could remember nothing and that they had the wrong man. Tyler was taken to the county jail in Pittsboro, 12 miles away, where the sheriff, worried that the awkward and overweight boy might hurt himself or be targeted by other inmates, placed him in a cell used for solitary confinement. Tyler had turned 17 by the time, five months later, a grand jury indicted him for aggravated assault, and his case went before a judge. Tyler's defense lawyer, appointed by the court, informed the judge in a court filing that his attempts at speaking with the boy had made it apparent the 17-year-old did not have "sufficient mental capacity" to understand the charge he was facing. The lawyer wanted Tyler ...

Maintaining Momentum Against the Tax Bill 6.12.2017 Truthout - All Articles
The current political climate is hostile to real accountability. Help us keep lawmakers and corporations in check -- support the independent journalism at Truthout today! How do you pass a tax bill that hurts the bulk of your constituents while lining the pockets of the wealthy? Members of Congress have been speeding to push their  historically unpopular  tax cuts, voting in the dead of night on a bill covered in handwritten notes with the hope that their haste will prevent their plans from being derailed. But across the country, people have been telling their elected officials: the bill comes with a disastrous price tag for the constituents they're supposed to represent.  The weeks preceding the Senate vote saw a flurry of protests and rallies aimed at stopping the tax bill in its tracks. Groups like  Americans For Tax Fairness  have been publishing nonstop updates and fact sheets to educate the public.  And even as the tax bill cleared another hurdle over the weekend, the actions have continued.
