South African Miners Face Murder Rap

Miners face murder rap

"...after police commissioner Riah Phiyega had earlier confirmed that the miners died after police shot at them with live ammunition - Lesenyego said: "It's technical but, in legal [terms], when people attack or confront [the police] and a shooting takes place which results in fatalities ... suspects arrested, irrespective of whether they shot police members or the police shot them, are charged with murder."

Pennsylvania Gov. ED RENDELL Keeps MOVE 9 Locked Up Almost 33 Years!

ONA MOVE!  The MOVE Organization wants to take this opportunity to point out yet another example of the blatant prejudice of government officials when it comes to MOVE. Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell just commuted the life sentences of three men convicted of murder in the 1970s. The reason he gave is that these men were not the ones that actually pulled the trigger in the murder, they were “accessories”.  In the case of the MOVE 9, however, Rendell was the district attorney who charged and prosecuted 9 of our MOVE sisters and brothers for the murder of one cop who was shot with one bullet from one gun. MOVE women never had weapons charges on them and nobody including any police officials could say that *any* MOVE person shot and killed Policeman James Ramp.
