We tell children to stay in a child’s place, so why are there so many children in prison. Kids forced to grow up at a fast pace, now enslaved in prison living. Lock em up and throw away the key, seems to be the desired course of action. Illogical thinking and ill fated reforms have proven to be a failed reaction. Instead of rehabilitation disguises in prison, how about trying rehabilitation in their homes. Since in all actuality, that is where these children really belong. The eyes of Justice, have definitely become blinded to the ways of this mad scheme. When all they can think of is punishment, instead of these children chasing there dreams. Young impersinoable minds, now being shaped in an environment full of mistrust and anger. Only to be freed one day, thereby placing the community at an even greater danger. What was once an innadnt mind, now hardened from the affects of doing hard time. No longer chasing their dreams, its now chasing a life of crime. Its time to find solutions to this problem, because soon it’ll be too late. Its a community problem, that we cant afford to leave it to the state. There is no reasonable minded adult, who should be in agreement with this. So in the name of Davontae Sandford, lets take a stand for “Justice”

It will have been 6 long years to Davontae Sanford was falsly arrested for the Runyon Street murders.
He was 14 years old. He is now 20,
More than Six years of his childhood were stolen from him by a corrupt legal system which only continues to work to cover up the terrible wrong it has done him. In the mean time, those who are known to have carried out this sickening crime go uncharged.
Davontae is innocent. The police know it. The prosecutors know it. The courts know it. Anybody who reads the court records and police reports knows it.
This could have been any one of us, or any one of our children who was falsely arrested, railroaded, and imprisioned. If we let this stand, who will be next?
Please join us in demanding that the police investigate those who ordered and carried out the Runyon Street murders. Demand that the prosecutors stop covering up their frame-up of this innocent child and come clean. Demand that Davontae be freedto come home

A Detroit hit man in prison for eight murders said he’s willing to publicly take responsibility for four more to help clear a young man who now says he’s innocent of the slayings and confessed at age 14 only to satisfy police.
Vincent Smothers’ testimony would be the most crucial evidence yet to try to persuade a judge to throw out Davontae Sanford’s guilty plea and free him from a nearly 40-year prison sentence. In an interview with the Associated Press, Smothers declared: “He’s not guilty. He didn’t do it.”
Smothers said he never used a 14-year-old accomplice — blind in one eye and learning disabled — to carry out his paid hits, mostly victims tied to Detroit’s drug trade. There’s no dispute that Smothers confessed to the so-called Runyon Street slayings when he was captured in 2008, but prosecutors have never charged him and never explained why.
“I understand what prison life is like; it’s miserable. To be here and be innocent — I don’t know what it’s like,” Smothers said of Sanford, who is now 19. “He’s a kid, and I hate for him to do the kind of time they’re giving him.”
Smothers confessed to a series of murders, including the execution-style shooting of a Detroit officer’s estranged wife, for $50. He says he was paid $60,000 over a two-year period. He eventually pleaded guilty to eight slayings and was sentenced to at least 52 years in prison.
Sanford, meanwhile, has been fighting to get out of prison. A Wayne County judge soon is expected to decide whether to throw out his guilty plea to the four killings on Runyon Street in 2007.

Good morning County Commissioners:
anticipation of today’s 11:30 a.m. budget meeting with Wayne County
Prosecutor Kym Worthy’s Budget Mess who is expected to present her case before the
Committee on Public Safety about how the budget cuts have impacted her
staff. I ask that you deny Ms. Worthy’s request for any additional
money for this budget year for the following reasons. First, as Ms.
Bell very well knows from past meetings between her and our group, the
People’s Task Force to Free the Wrongfully Convicted, Ms. Worthy
received more than $3 million from the City of Detroit for her purported
review of adjudicated cases involving the Detroit Crime Lab. Aside
from the fact that funding violated state law which prohibits a
prosecutor from receiving funding from a municipality, as her office
salary is set annually by the County Commission, for Ms. Worthy to now
complain she is in dire need of additional money to fund operations is a
fault of her
own making. She wasted both, human and financial resources by pulling
her staff to conduct post-conviction reviews of thousands of adjudicated
cases that were in addition to her regular duties as prosecutor, to say
nothing of the fact that both conflict of law and ethical issues
demanded that she not conduct those reviews. But she did, and against
our strong urging against allowing her to do so. So, there is where a
lot of her staff’s hours went to in cases where the prosecutor was
reviewing cases she prosecuted. On that note, Ms. Worthy should be
tasked with explaining what she did with the $3 million she unlawfully
received from the City of Detoit. Perhaps it’s time to ask her.
particular strikes at the heart of her conduct of wasting money to fight
appeals in which she refuses to heed her ethical obligation to confess
error. That of Davontae Sanford, a 14 year old mentally challenged kid
who was induced to plead guilty to four murders in 2007 for which
post-conviction evidence of his innocence has emerged in which a
professed hitman for Detroit Police, Vincent Smothers, has unequivocally
confessed to those crimes. Despite evidence of his innocence, Ms.
Worthy has spent untold THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS prosecuting that case and
fighting the appeals, although she has the power to save the county
money by simply confessing error in that case and set Davontae free.
Remind her, if you will, of her own crimes in continuing to deny justice
for that little boy whose freedom she stole with no regard for due
process of law and continue to deny to this day. I have no sympathy for
her; she is
corrupt; she is no guardian of justice.
We call on people all over the world who love Truth, Justice and equality…To stand with Davonte Sanford and Johnnie L. Savory in the spirit of Emit Till..We need to hold those accountable across every Nation that block the Administration of Justice from going forth to protect the Innocent, Davonte and Johnnie; moreover, let us remember, we failed Emit Till as a Nation.
