THIS BLOG is NOW RETIRED

I began this blog in May 2009 following the death of Marcia Powell at Perryville State Prison in Goodyear, Arizona. It is not intended to prescribe the path that leads to freedom from the prison industrial complex.

Rather, these are just my observations in arguably the most racist, fascist, militaristic state in the nation at a critical time in history for a number of intersecting liberation movements. From Indigenous resistance to genocidal practices, to the fight over laws like SB1070 and the ban on Ethnic Studies, Arizona is at the center of many battles for human rights, and thus the struggle for prison abolition as well - for none are free until all are. I retired the blog in APRIL 2013.

David Rovics: We Are Everywhere

To my fellow activists now struggling through life - let this be a reminder that you are not alone and that we desperately need you here. All the injustice, grief, war, and human suffering calls for us to stay and do everything we can about it - you can't help us anymore when you're gone. Don't give up the fight - your last shred of hope may just keep someone else alive, too.

COURTWATCHING the COPS: Chrisman Murder Trial 2013



A child's plea on the walk outside the fundraiser for Richard Chrisman held by his buddies with the 
Phoenix Law Enforcement Association (PLEA - the slimy uniformed police officer's union in our fine town) 
after he was finally fired for murdering Danny Rodriguez the previous fall (PHX, April 2011).


UPDATE!!!!

The trial of former PHX Police officer Richard Chrisman for the October 2010 murder of Danny Rodriguez has again been postponed. It should begin March 13, 2013 at 8:30 am. As always, though, check the criminal case history files for Richard Chrisman, and go over the case calendar, or call the Maricopa Superior Court's criminal case info line (602-506-8575).
