They Put Me in Solitary for Drugs I Didn’t Have

The kits seem simple — mix a chemical or two with the suspicious substance and see what color it turns. But the tests are imprecise and prone to user error, so they can flag everything from doughnut glaze to motor oil as illegal substances. They’ve generated so many wrongful convictions that some courts refuse to allow them as evidence. Even so, many prison systems still rely on them to punish people for drugs they don’t have.

Lockups use unreliable tests to claim that lawyers are sending drugs to their clients behind bars.

This is the Massucco family.

The Massachusetts government is suing them for $42 million, over a salamander that isn't endangered.

Back in 2017, the Massuccos bought a property in South Dartmouth, MA for them to raise their children, and care for their horses and multitude of pets.

Before they bought it, they made sure they has permission to clear some trees to make room for their horses. They were told everything was fine, so they bought it and proceeded to clear.

Soon after, the Massachusetts government informed them that their entire property was a "priority habitat" for the marbled salamander, a non-endangered species.

The reason no one knew this is because the government doesn't bother registering their "priority habitats" with the state registry.

The Massuccos have never seen a salamander on their property, but that's ok because the state is not required to prove that the species even lives on the properties they claim as "habitats".

Attorney General Maura Healy gave the Massuccos a chance to "settle" the matter by giving the property to the state and paying hundreds of thousands of dollars. They refused, so now she's suing them for $42 million, plus $30,000 each day for every day the suit continues.

Again, the state didn't bother telling anyone the property was "protected", they never have to show that a single salamander lives there, the salamander isn't even threatened, but that isn't stopping them from trying to ruin a family's life.

There's no way of knowing how many other families they've done this to, because these agencies are covered by laws that protect them from the public, who is not allowed to access their records.

This is what happens when government is put in charge of "protecting the environment": they use that power to ruin people's lives and steal their property, while the big businesses who put them in office continue to pollute with impunity.

Research Roundup: Incarceration can cause lasting damage to mental health

We often talk about the disturbingly high numbers of people with mental health disorders locked up in prisons and jails. But less attention is paid to the ways in which incarceration itself perpetuates this problem by creating and worsening symptoms of mental illness.

Incarceration can trigger and worsen symptoms of mental illness — and those effects can last long after someone leaves the prison gates.

Today, October 2, is the day to acknowledge those that have overcome immeasurable obstacles to prove their innocence, those still caged for crimes which they did not commit, those forced to continue their life with a wrongful conviction, and those who have died convicted but innocent. It should outrage each of us that our “justice system” refuses to hold the sanctity of innocence above the compulsion to convict. How many of our elected officials will take the time today to acknowledge wrongful conviction day? How many of those running for office? How many of your friends? How many of you?
