Rev. Pinkney Arrested AGAIN, supporters: Lynn Stewart, Voice Of Detroit, EXPOSED,

What's really happening to the people of Benton Harbor:
The thrust [of the Berrien county courthouse] is to physically remove and destroy families through the use
of the criminal justice system. Every person they can put in jail; every person whose voting rights they can
revoke with a felony conviction; every person they can cause to lose their job by putting them on probation;
every person they can cause to lose the ability to pay for basic necessities through imposing ruinous court
costs and probation is all part of the process. In the 1960s, it was called Negro removal. In Bosnia, it was
called ethnic cleansing. It could be called genocide, the removal of the minority population for the purpose
of redevelopment of the land. That’s what’s happening in Benton Harbor and the foremost leader
of the resistance is Rev. Edward Pinkney. --Civil rights attorney, Hugh "Buck" Davis

Ethnic cleansing continues in Benton Harbor. Whirlpool needs the area "cleaned up."
What's wrong with human suffering and destroying lives (not to mention the Great Lakes and environs) so rich white men can play golf?

Here's a dated article from Time on America's drug war: http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,985050,00.html It's all still true. Over half of US prisoners are in for drugs. Our national madness: 1 in 100 Americans are incarcerated - more than any country on the planet. Research this issue and what you find is mega-corruption on many levels. There are good films on the topic - American Drug War: The Last White Hope (2007) is one worth watching.
