Bronx Teen Seeking Trial Languishes at Rikers, cuz… well, why not?

Pedrohernandez

Meanwhile, in New York City, civil rights activists are demanding justice for a Bronx teenager who’s been held at the notorious Rikers Island jail while awaiting trial for a 2015 crime he says he did not commit. Prosecutors say 18-year-old Pedro Hernandez fired a shot that struck another teen in the leg, even though the victim and eight other teens who witnessed the shooting say Hernandez is innocent. Hernandez has turned down a plea deal that would see him released on five years’ probation. He’s insisting on a trial by jury, but scheduling conflicts have pushed a trial date past Labor Day. Hernandez has been in jail since July of 2016. Hernandez hopes to be released by September 1 in order to accept a full college scholarship. His family has launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise the $250,000 needed to bail him out. Hernandez’s plight has drawn comparisons to the case of Kalief Browder, another Bronx teen, who committed suicide in 2015 at the age of 22 after being held at Rikers for nearly three years without trial for a crime he did not commit.

“Fuck-Fuck Corrections.” Bob Wire, M.C.C.

In the age of Fuck-Fuck corrections, one might wonder how anything gets done, any thing at all.  What is Fuck-Fuck correctrions, you ask?  I’ll tell you what Fuck-Fuck corrections are.  Fuck-Fuck corrections is the act of making things look like they are making progress or improvement.  Fuck-Fuck corrections is: the shuffling of people her, moving them there, cutting fat here, stream-lining the system from top to bottem.  Now, Fuck-Fuck corredtions might not be such a bad thing, except is is absolutely nothing more than the ILLUSION of progress.  In reality Fuck-Fuck corrections is nothing more than slight-of-hand with a marked deck of cards.  Fuck-Fuck corrections don’t make things better, they move one incompetent person after another into some new job, they don’t understand , nor could they accomplish it if they did understand it.

Maine Correctional Center (M.C.C.) has been going through it’s own phase of Fuck-Fuck correcti0ons of late, C.O.’s sent here, C.O.’s sent there; back and forth and on and on and on and up and down and inside out and not a god-damn thing gets better!  Not one god-damn thiung!  Same incompetent people performing someone else’s job or something like that.  DON’T BELIEVE <E?  Then tell me how a competent staff person, in a competently run facility could forget to process the paperwork, or forgets to pass it along ot the right person for inmates getting out of jail.  YES!  In the last two months at M.C.C., the staff has FAILED to properly process or handle the paperwork of two inmates who had “done their time;”  HONEST.  How the hell does that happen?  How the hell can you let an inmate languish in anxiety to go home after he has served month after year in prison?  How the hell does that happen?  I’ll tell you how it happens:

“FUCK-FUCK CORRECTIONS”
