Heartbreaking Final Letter Of Hanged Young Iranian Woman Reyhaneh Jabbari

Dear Sholeh, today I learned that it is now my turn to face Qisas [the law of retribution in the Iranian legal system]. I am hurt as to why you did not let me know yourself that I have reached the last page of the book of my life. Don’t you think that I should know? You know how ashamed I am that you are sad. Why did you not take the chance for me to kiss your hand and that of dad?

The world allowed me to live for 19 years. That ominous night it was I that should have been killed. My body would have been thrown in some corner of the city, and after a few days, the police would have taken you to the coroner’s office to identify my…

Tuam and the Legacy that Lives

My son at the burial ground

It was in early 2012 that Mam called me with news of her findings regarding the Tuam Mother and Baby Home, managed by the Sisters of the Bon Secours from 1925 until it closed in 1961. The whole world knows about it now: the children who died; their number; their whereabouts. My own baby son was about 16 months old on that day. He was asleep in a sling wrapped about me, as I stood in the porch of the old Wexford house I was living in. In silence I listened to what my mother had to say over the phone.

“Are you there?” Mam’s voice queried gently at the other end of the phone when I made no reply. “I’ve upset you now.”  She sounded dismayed.

Still holding the phone to my ear with one hand, I held tightly to my baby with…

We Need an Accounting of Amerika’z Innocent Prisonerz

Originally posted on Moorbey'z Blog:

“What does innocence really get you
when innocence is not valued?  Ask
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia,
who really seems to care little
if the innocent are executed.”
A recent study found that wrongful death row convictions are higher than previously thought, with a conservative estimate that 4 percent of the roughly 3,000 prisoners languishing on death row across America—at least 120 people—are innocent.

And Jimmy Dennis is almost certainly one of them.

On November 5, the Third Circuit federal appeals court in Philadelphia will hear oral arguments in Jimmy Dennis’ case.  Last year, Judge Anita Brody, a federal district court judge, overturned Dennis’ death sentence, declaring he “was wrongly convicted of murder and sentenced to die for a crime in all probability he did not commit.”  He was sentenced to die for the 1991 murder of Chedell Ray Williams, 17, a student at Olney High School, over a pair of…

Showdown over Ebola: Will Quarantines of Healthcare Workers Harm the Fight Against Epidemic?


http://democracynow.org – A debate is intensifying in the United States over quarantining healthcare workers who return from West Africa but do not show signs of Ebola. On Wednesday, Maine’s governor said that he would seek legal authority to enforce a 21-day home quarantine on Kaci Hickox, a nurse who has tested negative for Ebola after treating patients in Sierra Leone. Hickox made national headlines when she publicly criticized New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for quarantining her in a tent outside the hospital. Hickox said she would challenge Maine’s restrictions just as she did in New Jersey. “I completely understand that the state’s purpose is to protect the state of Maine,” Hickox said last night. “I have worked in public health for many years, and that has always been my purpose, as well, but we have to make decisions on science, and I am completely healthy.” To discuss the debate, we speak to Lawrence Gostin, professor and faculty director at the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown University. He is also the director of the World Health Organization Collaborating Center on Public Health Law.
