"Democracy cannot breathe in secret courts" is an article I published at HubPages. It was unpublished because moderators labeled it "Mature Content." Presumably, I was to remove the photo of Michael Brown rotting in the Ferguson, Missouri street and Eric Garner being choked to death in New York. Therefore, the top row of photos above were replaced with the photographs beneath them.
I agree that pictures of the war on black America are obscene, but men, women, and children in the apartment complex where Brown lived were not only subjected to the "mature content" of photos of his corpse, but they were in sight of Brown's actual shooting, then his corpse rotted in the hot street for over four hours after the teen was killed by Officer Wilson. Likewise, commuters and pedestrians in New York were traumatized to watch Garner's killing as a live NYPD episode. We cannot sanitize the truth that we wish to change. Nevertheless, Garner's picture in the article was changed to one of his funeral photos, and Brown's photo was changed to one that showed only his handsome, chubby face.
Having replaced the distressing photographs of black men dead and dying, I hereby request that the article be republished speedily so as not to interfere with people having access to its contents before the NY Supreme Court date of January 29 at 9am. The NY Supreme Court will consider Thursday whether to open the grand jury transcript regarding Officer Daniel Pantaleo, who killed Eric Garner. Mainstream media avoids publishing the fact that NYCLU and Legal Aid sued to release the transcript, and it appears that bloggers like Mary Neal are running into roadblocks publishing the information, also. Democracy cannot breathe in secret courts.
Both the photos that I replaced in this article have been widely released throughout the world, but I would not want to offend the sensibilities of HubPages readers.
See the article, "Democracy Cannot Breathe in Secret Courts."
HubPages claimed the right to delay publication for up to 72 hours after the "mature content" is removed, which could delay publication until after NYCLU and Legal Aid plead their case before NY Supreme Court to release the grand jury transcript. I also ran into difficulty publishing a post announcing this article at Google+ and wrote about it in an article entitled "Justice Gagged re Eric Garner Grand Jury Transcript."
It is my assumption that mainstream news, which I presume was bought with our tax money (the missing trillions), is ignoring the court date at the request of its true owners for one reason: THEY DON'T WANT PROTESTERS IN THE STATEN ISLAND NY SUPREME COURT AT 9:00 A.M. ON THURSDAY, JANUARY 29, TO HEAR NYCLU'S CASE FOR RELEASING THE PANTALEO GRAND JURY TRANSCRIPT.
Paragraph 1 repeated: "Democracy cannot breathe in secret courts" is an article I published at HubPages. It was unpublished because moderators labeled it "Mature Content." Presumably, I was to remove the photo of Michael Brown rotting in the Ferguson, Missouri street and Eric Garner being choked to death in New York.
