Introduction. [TopLink]



Please forward. Around 600 votes in Florida won the November 2000 presidential election for Republican George W. Bush.

Reports from the BBC, London Observer, U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, Congressional Black Caucus, Puerto Rican Legal Defense Fund, etc. are coming together to paint a big picture of ILLEGAL disenfranchisement (voting rights blocked) of tens of thousands of Florida voters. Especially blacks, Puerto Ricans, and poor whites. Voters that normally vote mostly Democrat. Blacks voted 9 to 1 for Democrat Gore.

The American media has not really reported this big picture yet, except in the back pages, and only with much bogus spin attached. It looks like the USA has joined Latin America in the coup d'etat club.

Voter registrations illegally "lost." Registered voters blocked due to illegally-applied ID requirements at the polls. Illegal police intimidation of voters through roadblocks, delays, searches, etc.. Felon disenfranchisement laws illegally applied. Hours-long waits at polling places, especially in precincts that vote Democrat.

Republican involvement in private corporations in charge of certain aspects of voting records. Voting records that illegally blocked registration of tens of thousands of voters. Conscious neglect by Florida Republican politicians and Republican election officials before the election.

The ILLEGAL disenfranchisement is in ADDITION to LEGAL felon disenfranchisement of hundreds of thousands in Florida, which, due to the racist nature of felony drug laws, especially effects black drug law offenders. In Florida blacks voted nine to one for Democrat Gore.

U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, and Florida voting irregularities. [TopLink]

*Civil Rights Commission March 9, 2001 Status Report On Probe Of Election Practices in Florida. U. S. Commission On Civil Rights (USCCR). "Voter disenfranchisement appears to be at the heart of the issue. It is not a question of a recount or even an accurate count, but more pointedly the issue is those whose exclusion from the right to vote amounted to a 'No Count.' "
http://corporatism.tripod.com/civil.htm and

http://www.usccr.gov/vote2000/flstrpt1.htm -USCCR report.
http://www.usccr.gov/ -USCCR homepage.

The hugely overworked and under-funded U.S. Commission on Civil Rights at a meeting on March 9, 2001 pointed out that they were the only government agency officially investigating alleged Florida voting irregularities.

Up to that time the Commission had taken around 30 hours of open testimony in open Florida hearings.

The March 9, 2001 meeting was covered by C-SPAN.

Members of the Commission pointed out that there were few mechanisms nationwide for correcting or even investigating election problems.

One member said that the year 2000 election nationwide reminded him of police departments 30 years ago before civilian review boards.

Another member pointed out the views of world-renowned, election-observer and ex-President, Jimmy Carter concerning his problems with U.S. election methods.

Puerto Ricans disenfranchised. Congressional Black Caucus on Voter Irregularities and Voter Reform. [TopLink]

This section's info is from an IndyMedia article that has been repeatedly hacked, changed, and censored by forces unknown. This info has been even more ignored by the mainstream U.S. media than the illegal black disenfranchisement info.

In Central Florida, thousands of Puerto Ricans were denied the right to vote. Puerto Ricans tend to vote democratic.

According to Juan Figueroa, President of the Puerto Rican Legal Defense Fund, thousands of Puerto Ricans were prevented from voting in such areas as Orlando, Orange County and Hillsborough. His findings were made public before the hearings held by the Congressional Black Caucus on Voter Irregularities and Voter Reform. Figueroa alleges that many of the same tricks used to deny blacks the right to vote throughout the state were used against Puerto Ricans. Additionally, laws designed to provide linguistic aid to native Spanish speakers were grossly violated, making it more difficult to for Puerto Ricans to cast proper votes.

"Many Latino voters in Central Florida were turned away from the polls, ignored when requesting language assistance, required to prevent additional photo identification, and subjected to other forms of harassment, which resulted in thousands, ...THOUSANDS..., of uncast votes," Figueroa testified.

"In response to these allegations, the Puerto Rican Legal Defense Fund sent lawyers down to Florida. A team of five lawyers have interviewed scores of Latinos in the Central Florida region, and our conclusion is clear: widespread disenfranchisement of Latino voters occurred in Florida in this past election."

These allegations will be filed, as part of a suit similar to that already filed by the ACLU, NAACP, and People for the American Way against Katherine Harris. Both suits allege widespread and systematic discrimination, under the Voting Rights Act, which demand specific redress.

A summary of the ACLU-NAACP lawsuit can be read at:

with 4,609 adults under correctional supervision per

That's 4.6% of Texas adults imprisoned, on probation, or on parole!
Calculations from Table 8 show that 1337 Texas adults
out of 100,000 are in prison or jail.
That's 1.34% of Texas adults imprisoned!

U.S. Incarceration Rates Timeline.
Number of prison and jail inmates per 100,000 population.
Midyear population. Rates slightly lower if yearend population.

TEXAS rates at the chart end:
1014 in 1999. 966 in 2001.

That is 1% of Texans imprisoned!

1925 to 1977 incarceration rates are estimates based on prison rates.
1925 to 1977 jail rates are estimated to be 50% of prison rates.
The 2 rates are added together to get the 1925-77 incarceration rate.

The last link above is a clickable U.S. map of
state-by-state incarceration rates.

The rates are for inmates per 100,000 state population.
Note that no state in the USA has a rate less than 200.
Bush was governor of Texas 1994-2000. His legacy:
Louisiana (1025)
and TEXAS (1014)
(under Bush) had the highest rates in 1999.
In 2001
(see the 4 links just above) it was
Louisiana (1013)
and
TEXAS (966)
that again had the highest incarceration rates with

1% of their populations imprisoned.
2001 Federal incarceration rate of 49 was NOT 
added in to those numbers.
In the USA it costs 
around $25,000 average per year for each inmate. 
Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS):
"At midyear 2005,
nearly 4.7 percent of black males were in prison
or jail, compared to 1.9 percent of Hispanic males,
and 0.7 percent of white males. Among males in
their late 20s, nearly 12 percent of black males,
compared to 3.9 percent of Hispanic males and
1.7 percent of white males, were incarcerated"

*1925 to 1977 incarceration rates are estimates
based on prison rates from the Bureau of Justice
Statistics document NCJ 102494, State and
Federal Prisoners, 1925-85. Info is also in
NCJ 85861. The 1925-1977 jail rates are
estimated as 50% of prison rates. Prison rate plus
jail rate equals total incarceration rate. Sources:

Ralph Nader "called for the legalization of marijuana as part of an overhaul of the nation's 'self-defeating and antiquated drug laws.' ... Legalizing marijuana, Nader said, would allow the government to regulate and potentially tax its use like tobacco products." -Albuquerque Journal, September 8, 2000.
