Apparently he failed to turn up in courts for two days and when inquiries were made he was found dead in his home. Post mortem revealed he had died of a stroke. Even his family came to know when his accountant contacted them. His funeral had been held in London.

The question is what caused the stroke?

Body and Soul: The Black Panther Party and the Fight Against Medical Discrimination
Alondra Nelson

There are different indigenous nationalist philosophies but the principles of all Black nationalist ideologies are unity and self-determination—that is, separation, or independence, from European society.

Between its founding in 1966 and its formal end in 1980, the Black Panther Party blazed a distinctive trail in American political culture. The Black Panthers are most often remembered for their revolutionary rhetoric and militant action.

The Black Panther Party’s health activism—its network of free health clinics, its campaign to raise awareness about genetic disease, and its challenges to medical discrimination—was an expression of its founding political philosophy and also a recognition that poor blacks were both underserved by mainstream medicine and overexposed to its harms. This legacy—and this struggle—continues today in the commitment of health activists and the fight for universal health care.

Social policies have profound moral implications.

Their current conversation about the health disparities that plague the African-American community and that are, as she puts it, ‘quite literally sickening.’ Second, she adds immeasurably to our knowledge of the Black Panther Party, complicating its commonplace designation as a radical, militant organization to unearth its dedication and hard work in advocating for and providing equal and quality health care for even the most underserved African Americans.

Alondra Nelson (born 1968) is an award-winning American sociologist and author. She is the inaugural Dean of Social Science[1] at Columbia University in the City of New York. On September 1, 2017, she will become President of the Social Science Research Council.

WHAT WAS THE BLACK PANTHER PARTY?  The Black Panther Party was a progressive political organization that stood in the vanguard of the most powerful movement for social change in America since the Revolution of 1776 and the Civil War.

What Does It Mean When You Have A Mistrial?


What Does It Mean When You Have A Mistrial?

There are several reasons that a judge might declare a mistrial, including a hung jury, which is when the jury can’t come to a unanimous decision. There might also be misconduct by an attorney, or improperly introduced evidence. A mistrial usually means having to start all over again.

A Lost Nation: Transparency in the Family Courts

A Lost Nation: Transparency in the Family Courts



Source: Increase Transparency in the Family Courts.


Once a child is proven to be ‘Gillick’ competent the child must be allowed to attend Court to give their views to a Judge. Guardians ad litem should not in any circumstance give evidence on behalf of a child that will decide the fate of the child.

The Government opened family courts up to greater media scrutiny, in response to criticism that the current set up is overly secretive in April 2009. This was approved by Parliament. Journalists are able to attend family court hearings in county courts and the High Court from 27 April 2009.

What You Should Have Asked Your Teachers About AUTHORITY


What You Should Have Asked Your Teachers About AUTHORITY

Source: Word of the week: AUTHORITY

When the word Authority is used in the name of an organization, this name usually refers to the governing body upon which such authority is vested; for example, the Northamptonshire Local Authority or the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority. It is also the right to do something.

Every Local Authority has a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children within its area who are in need, and insofar as this is consistent with that duty, promote the upbringing of such children by their families.

The word sovereignty indicates the supreme authority.  In matters of political and/or governmental power it was, in olden times, the authority of the King, over which no power within his realm could stand in opposition. The King’s word was the law of the land, and no one held any higher power or authority.

Local Authority Duties

Posted on

The successful American Revolution displaced any authority of the King of England and supplanted it with a brand new concept — the concept of individual sovereignty, in which, for the first time in history, the individual soul enmeshed in a human body and born with unalienable rights was seen to be the ultimate source ofsovereignty. It is called “Freedom”. It is called “Liberty”. And, less often than it should be, it is called “Personal Responsibility”. It is also called “Self-governance

In the internet  investigation, the Inquiry will review national policies on preventing abuse facilitated by the internet and will consider the appropriateness of the response of the National Crime Agency, its CEOP Command, and the police. The Inquiry will also investigate the policies of internet service providers, providers of online platforms, and other relevant software and communication technology companies relating to child sexual abuse, and consider the adequacy of the existing statutory and regulatory framework applicable to those organisations. The objective of the investigation is to make practical recommendations that minimise the opportunities for abuse facilitated by the internet in the future. Continue reading →

The child migration programmes were large-scale schemes in which thousands of children, many of them in the care of the state, were migrated to parts of the British Empire by various institutions in England and Wales, with the knowledge and approval of the British government.
