THREE STRIKES AND YOUR OUT
Dominiques has 3 strikes/plus that has caused him to lose his freedom.
Strike 1 He is a young African American Male
Strike 2 He was wearing a black hoodie on the streets of Seattle on January 14, 2012 when he was profiled by Seattle Police
Strike 3. He was talking to himself while walking.
Plus His public defender, Erik Spencer has, and continues, to fail him while still getting paid; his family is too poor to hire a real lawyer; and they are too poor to pay the ridiculous newly posted million dollar bail..
Continue reading to find out the most recent violation of this young man by the KIng County Prosecutor's Office and which was one of the main catalyst for my Hunger Strike.
INNOCENT! DNA TEST of CLOTHES, NEGATIVE...
On or about January 14, 2012. Dominique was targeted by Seattle police one evening while walking in downtown Seattle wearing a black hoodie. They alleged he looked like someone who just stabbed a man 12 times.
Pierce County lead attorney for Western State Hospital's patients, Christopher Jenning's went to the home of Dominque Jamerson in 2012 and informed his mother the DNA test of Dominique's clothes was negative; no blood, no hair, no skin of the alleged victim, but suggested it was better for Dominique's case if he were found incompetent to stand trial, because the Pros Atty might otherwise try and persuade Dominique to plea bargain.
RELEASED BASED ON INNOCENCE OR CONFINED BASED ON 3 STRIKES?
Jenning's definition of better has resulted in not only almost 2 years of imprisonment in the state hospital but has also resulted in torture, hopelessness and despair for Dominique while lining the pockets of many. In the almost two years of Dominique's confinement, the hospital has charged almost one half million dollars for his confinement and their so-called services and also very possibly received money for drug experimentation. After being imprisoned in the state hospital for almost 2 years, Dominique believed he was finally going to be given his freedom in November, 2013, when 3 days before he was to go home, he was handcuffed and taken from his hospital room to jail to be charged with the same crime that they couldn't charge him with before because they claimed he was incompetent to stand trial.
HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS INCREASED
This outrage along with several others was the catalyst for my need to amplify my voice. I witnessed yet once again, one after another, outrageous human rights violations and complete disregard for the protections of the constitution for several innocent young adults, including my son. I knew the time had come. Given the great need for community support, the nature of the abuses and retaliation; the resistance of the establishment to even acknowledge the abuse, much less stop and prevent further abuse, I knew I would need to truly amplify my voice. And I chose the hunger Strike as my amplifier with November 12, as my start date.
(too read some of the details of these abuses visit my website at MentalHealthRightsYES.org)
IT WILL TAKE THE VILLAGE TO SAVE OUR LOVED ONES
I set the date, prepared myself, and on November 12, 2013, I began. I started with 4 days of water; Day 5, and on, fruit and vegetable liquids; with one meal of solid food approximately every 10 days.
Christmas Day was my 40th day of liquids. This practice has helped me to channel my outrage and deepen my commitment to being their voice and
I am asking for your help to amplify the voice of those who are being silenced and abused through cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment within or under the control of the mental health systems.
I do not want to overwhelm you with too many stories that will shock and outrage you, so I am prioritizing the stories and the request for your support according to the critical upcoming court dates. However, because 4 are very close together, I want to let you know that it is my intention to send you an alert a day on the next 4 business days.Please let me know if you do not want to receive them.
PLEASE CALL TODAY 1.) Seattle's Chief Pros. Attorney, Daniel Satterberg 206-296-9000 and tell him to FREE DOMINIQUE JAMERSON!Today
2. Call Washington State Senator Patty Murray 206-553-0891and leave a message: Tell her to Free Dominique Jamerson and investigate Washington State's Competency Restoration Process
Please remember that your 5 minute phone call could be the 100th call that just might awaken or pressure a person in authority to remember their humanity and do the right thing.
Day 2 is dedicated to my son Siddharta Fisher. Updates on Western State Hospital retaliation will follow next week. This is the second time in less than 60 days that he has been "disappeared" (completely and deliberately cutoff and his location unknown, from all of his friends, family and allies, for over 7 days.)
Day 3 is dedicated to Hector Ilias His story is on my website and he too will soon need Village support. Hector has lived in America with his family since age 2. He is threatened with deportation for crimes he did not commit in the mental hospital. The truth will set him free. He needs a jury trial.
DAy 4 is dedicated to J.Vaughan Her state captors agents told me and I quote "J___is owned by the state." Her story is still ongoing also and on my website.
If you want to know the past human rights violations and egregious forfeiture of constitutional rights of these 4 young adults; Dominique Jamerson, Siddharta Fisher, Jennifer Vaughan, Hector Ilias.
