Over 12,000 New Yorkers are incarcerated on Rikers Island and in other city jails each day. Over 9,700 of those incarcerated each day are pre-trial detainees who are being held without being convicted of a crime. Most are there because they cannot afford bail. People being held in New York City jails face solitary confinementinadequate mental health services and a culture of brutality carried out by correction officers.

Video: March 1 Rally to Fire Correction Officer Pendergrass

On March 1st, JAC held a Rally at the Q100/Rikers Bus to ask folks to call on the firing of Correction Officer Terrence Pendergrass, who left a young man, Jason Echevarria, to die in a solitary confinement at Rikers Island in August 2012.  Pendergrass was the Captain in the unit the night Jason died and he ignored Jason's pleas for medical attention.

Pendergrass was arrested on March 24th by the FBI and charged with violating the civil rights of Jason Echevarria.

OPPOSE CO BRUTALITY

Robert Hinton suffered a brutal beating in MHAUII in April 2012.  His vertebrae was fractured, nose broken in two places, and choked so hard that his eyes were bleeding.

DOC has brought charges against all the officers for use of force, false reports, etc.  OnMarch 25 at 9:30 a.m. at 100 Church Street, 12th Floor, the officers involved in the beating will testify at  the OATH (Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings) hearing.  DOC is going to try to pack the courtroom with officers to support them when they testify. 

Let’s show up in support of Mr. Hinton!
