FL: Update: Miami-Dade Encampment

[floridaactioncommittee.org 5/11/18]

Registrants are still at the Miami-Dade Encampment. Some, because their GPS monitoring will trigger if they leave the area (probation has them designated to) and they don’t want to violate probation and go back to prison for that. Others, because they realize there’s noplace for them to go and they will be violating the overnight camping ordinance wherever they are, so might as well stay put.

News crews are on site, waiting for enforcement action. This NBC6 video is from earlier this AM, where you can still see tents lined up.

We now have people who are REQUIRED to live where they are PROHIBITED from living. This is a clear indicator that any sanity within the broken SOR system has been lost.

Where are the voices of reason in all of this?

Where is the compassion, the realization that nobody lives without making mistakes, and that if someone makes a bad choice, it does not, then, exclude them from making better choices?

Are we truly such a bloodlusting and vengeful people that this obvious violation of human rights and imbalance of justice continues to be encouraged?

There is absolutely no way it can be constitutional to re-incarcerate someone for a crime they already served time for, which is exactly what Miami-Dade is doing by making it illegal to live anywhere – even on a street corner – for a crime that was already punished.

Is there any way to submit an emergency appeal to the US Supreme Court as one would for, say, an execution?

This is exactly the time that we need more lawyers to step-up to challenge the law due to the urgency of this situation! This country’s justice system would start falling apart if Americans actually were able to wrap their heads around the modern day atrocities being committed to people who have already served their time!
