Bring: Signs, water, friends and family In the American criminal justice system, justice is totally absent. There is no such thing as justice in America for the poor. The criminalization of U.S. citizens by the injustice system is now one of America's largest industries. Prisons have been privatized and inmates comprise cheap labor for big corporations. The United States of America not only has the highest percentage of its population in prison, it has the highest absolute number, substantially higher than authoritarian China—a country whose population is four times the size of the United States, but a country with fewer people in prison. On July 11, we will gather at 10:30 a.m. in front of the Berrien County Courthouse (811 Port St., St. Joseph). We will march, and at noon we will protest in front of Whirlpool Headquarters. The state of Democracy is detestable, and we are not about to sit back and let it continue its course. Corporations' interests are not above the rights of every day human beings like you and me. Whirlpool Corporation is responsible for the death of 79 people in London and we must stop the hostile takeover of the city of Benton Harbor. They must be held accountable to the people. Let's confront the criminal justice system and the corporations that are destroying our country!

Judge Schrock finally set a date for the hearing on the 4 motions: (1) deals with direct verdict (2) juror lied under oath about her connection with county clerk Sharon Tyler (3) resentencing to correct an invalid sentence (4) appeal bond pending motions. Mark your calendars. "I am now in Marquette prison over 15 hours from wife & family, sitting in prison for a crime that was never committed. Judge Schrock & Mike Sepic both admitted there was no evidence against me but now I sit in prison facing 30 months. Schrock actually stated that he wanted to make an example out of me. (to scare Benton Harbor residents even more...) ONLY IN AMERICA. I now have an army to help fight Berrien County. When I arrived at Jackson state prison on Dec. 15, I met several hundred people from Detroit, Flint, Kalamazoo, & Grand Rapids. Some people recognized me. There was an outstanding amount of support given by the prison inmates. When I was transported to Marquette Prison it took 2 days. The prisoners knew who I was. One of the guards looked me up on the internet and said, "who would believe Berrien County is this racist." -Rev. Edward Pinkney"
