Food Systems in an Unequal World

Food Systems in an Unequal World


Pesticides, a short-term aid for farmers, can often be harmful, undermining the long-term health of agriculture, ecosystems, and people. The United States and other industrialized countries import food from Costa Rica and other regions. To safeguard the public health, importers now regulate the level and types of pesticides used in the exporters’ food production, which creates “regulatory risk” for the export farmers. Although farmers respond to export regulations by trying to avoid illegal pesticide residues, the food produced for their domestic market lacks similar regulation, creating a double standard of pesticide use. Food Systems in an Unequal World examines the agrochemical-dependent agriculture of Costa Rica and how its uneven regulation in export versus domestic markets affects Costa Rican vegetable farmers. Examining pesticide-dependent vegetable production within two food systems, the author shows that pesticide use is shaped by three main forces: agrarian capitalism, the governance of food systems throughout the commodity chain, and ecological dynamics driving local food production. Those processes produce unequal outcomes that disadvantage less powerful producers who have more limited choices than larger farmers, who usually have access to better growing environments and thereby can reduce pesticide use and production costs. Despite the rise of alternative food networks, Galt says, persistent problems remain in the conventional food system, including widespread and intensive pesticide use. Facing domestic price squeezes, vegetable farmers in Costa Rica are more likely to supply the national market with produce containing residues of highly toxic pesticides, while using less toxic pesticides on exported vegetables. In seeking solutions, Galt argues for improved governance and research into alternative pest control but emphasizes the process must be rooted in farmers’ economic well-being.

Here’s What Charlotte Protesters Want You To Know About Racism

CHARLOTTE, N.C. ― Protesters have flooded the streets of North Carolina’s largest city since 43-year-old Keith Scott was shot and killed by Charlotte-Mecklenburg police on Tuesday.

Many of those demonstrating are frustrated and tired of carrying the weight that comes with being black in America.

The Huffington Post asked them to share what they want everyone to know about race in America ― unfiltered and uncensored. 

Here’s what they said.

“We will not be able to fight oppression, we will not be able to live in a system that was created for white men by white men … we need to completely abolish incarceration, abolish the police department ― and that’s when we’ll be able to get a chance.”

Catherine Farmer, 18

“It begins with us, it begins with the people. Until we begin to educate ourselves and educate our children on what racism truly is and what systemic racism is and what injustice is, nothing will ever change. Right now, we’re still caught up in a world where the old guard still runs things. And it’s very important for us as a whole ― black, white, Latino, Hispanic ― to come together to make these kind of changes. It’s destroying our country right now. It’s creating a division.”

“It’s not healthy for us at all. Right now, our people is being targeted. When I say ‘our people,’ I mean minorities. We’re being targeted by blue.”

Maurice Fair, 36

“It’s real, it’s a thing ― and just because others haven’t experienced it doesn’t mean it’s not real. We live it every day, so it needs to stop. No lives will matter until black lives matter, too.”

Cindy Robinson, 32 

“[We need] more awareness in the justice system. A lot of people don’t understand the justice system or their rights.” 

―Mario The Mic Man 

“This isn’t anything unique, this isn’t a new situation that we’re in ― you know what I’m saying. Ever since America was established in the 1700s, we’ve been in this place. If people really wanna get out, we’re going to have to start exercising tactics that haven’t been exercised before.

A lot of the things that we’re doing right now are things that we’ve done … in the past. Doing the same thing and expecting different results is the definition of someone who’s insane.

We can’t be insane. We’re gonna have to try to do something different. We gotta realize that this isn’t a new problem. This is not something that’s extraordinary ― this is actually very ordinary. We’re gonna have to really put our brains together and utilize all tactics to get liberation.”

Dhoruba Shakur, 26 

“The biggest problem in this nation is hypocrisy. America doesn’t seem to understand that she has become to black people what Britain was to her. When the constituents of the king were hung by [the] founding fathers, it was considered to be patriotism.

But, before that, they were considered to be terrorists. When you sit here and say that we can’t burn down buildings ― that wasn’t the case when you were doing destruction of property. And those who participated in it was held as martyrs during the Boston Tea Party.

It’s hypocrisy ― left and right, all across the board. We need to do what they’ve done. We need our 1776. They didn’t beg Britain to leave them alone. They didn’t beg for Britain to stop giving them taxation without representation. They did what they needed to do.”

Malcolm Turner

The 11 Struggles Of Hypersensitive Individuals

Here’s the cycle.

Person A does something person B doesn’t like.

Person B gets hurt and calls them out on it.

Person A gets mad at Person B.

It happens to me over and over and over again. It’s gotten to the point where I just expect it, like the people sitting in the splash zone at Sea World.

And then as I sat down to think about it, there’s a lot of struggles that us overly sensitive people go through. It’s not just one thing–it’s a multitude of them. So, in the name of self-therapy through writing, I’m going to list every single one of them.

1. We’re Always The Bad Guy, Even Though We Shouldn’t Be

I’m going to write that again. We’re always the bad guy, even though we shouldn’t be. When somebody hurts us, we tell them about it. Then after we tell them, they feel like we’re the ones attacking THEM, when we’re simply telling them what hurt us. People, it’s really not that hard to avoid being a complete Cotton-Headed Ninnymuggins to somebody. Shout out to Will Ferrel.

2. We Expect People To Be Somewhat Honorable

Many times when conflict arises and I know without a shadow of a doubt that I’m not wrong, I decide to just let things sit until an apology presents itself from the other party. Yeah, about 95 percent of the time that doesn’t happen. Our problem is we expect people to have at least a single shred of dignity and simply say two words that would make things better. Guys, being sensitive goes both ways. We get hurt, but all we need is a freaking apology and we’re better. We don’t need gifts and dinners and vases full of flowers.

And I also want to say that the ball isn’t always in our court. We need to express to the other party that something is wrong. That’s our duty to others.

3. Things End Up Blown Way Out Of Proportion

Because of our sensitivity, and because of the other party’s hard-headedness, things get blown way out of proportion. Things escalate because two simple words couldn’t be said. One person couldn’t humble themselves and say a simple apology.

4. We Can’t Fix It

In case anyone was wondering, we can’t fix this. For the most part, we’re very thoughtful individuals who expect much of ourselves and not much from others. But when somebody pushes our buttons, and we have a few, something must happen. It’s nothing that we can fix. We can try to improve at communicating that we’re hurt instead of internalizing it, but that’s it. We are who we are.

5. People Get Fed Up With Us Easily

It gets to the point with certain people where it’s like the boy who cried wolf syndrome. They get really annoyed that things keep going wrong, even when they should know by now what makes us tick. At one point you have to start wondering whether a relationship between the two of you is even healthy. Not all people are meant to get into a relationship with or be friends with somebody who is sensitive.

6. We’re Left Hurting Extremely Badly

When we do call people out on something, often times they just don’t apologize. Sometimes they even try to make it worse. This is the hardest part of it all because somebody we like or love is deliberately trying to hurt us more. Nothing is worse to a sensitive person than deliberate insensitivity.

7. Most Times We End Up Saying Sorry

Trust me, we hate conflict. We hate conflict as much as we hate getting our feelings hurt. So to bypass conflict we end up saying sorry simply to make things normal again. This isn’t a healthy way to take care of the situation at all.

8. Some Times We’re Serious And Cut People Off

Sometimes we are serious and end up cutting people off for good. And no, it wasn’t all just because of a dumb little text or a dumb little side comment–it was because the other person didn’t have the humility to simply take two seconds to say sorry. Literally all we want is an apology. When we’re hurt that bad, we remember it.

9. People Simply Don’t Learn

After a few months of knowing someone, you kind of understand what makes them tick and what doesn’t make them tick. For those who are friends with sensitive people, you should be able to understand that we have a few land mines embedded in the soil of our personality, but if you simply avoid doing just one or two things, life with us is going to be absolute gravy.

10. We Sound Over-Emotional

I’m sure you got that just from reading this post. The truth is that we’re amazing friends to have. We’ll put in more effort than anyone else and we’ll also be much more thoughtful than anyone else. It goes both ways. You get the insane highs with the lows. And the fact is that you won’t even get the lows that much if you simply stop doing the two or three things that we don’t like!

11. It’s Hard To Find Someone That Gets It

I have a few friends that get it. They understand that sometimes jokes need to be kept to a minimum, and that I have my stressful days every now and then. I hardly fight with these kinds of people. For the most part we have awesome times together with little to no conflict at all, while on the other hand I could have multiple conflicts a day with somebody else.

Again, it all depends on the personality of the people around us, and whether they even care about the sensitivity of other people.

What You Can Learn From Talking To A 90-Year Old

2016-09-25-1474825017-4549814-L1010393.jpg
Pretty good shape for 90 – must be those G&Ts

Last week we celebrated my father-in-law’s 90th birthday.

There was a time when even getting to 90 was a major achievement, and if someone were lucky enough to make it to 90, they were generally frail, wheelchair bound and barely aware of the celebration going on around them.

I remember when my great grandmother hit 90. She was in a nursing home, bent over, in a wheelchair. She barely knew where she was, or who she was. That was some time ago.

For my father-in-law, Ken Pattenden, nothing could be further from the truth. The man still stands a lean and wiry six foot plus (as I am only 5’6″, I find this alone intimidating), has a full head of hair, a crushing handshake, an athlete’s build and more than all his marbles. I suppose it’s a tribute to genetics and clean living.

In any event, to celebrate the event, we all gathered in one of those massive old English country houses (did I mention that he lives in the UK?), and gathered the family for a weekend long party.

Ken was born in 1926, (you don’t have to be a math major to have figured that one out), one year before Charles Lindbergh became the first person to fly across the Atlantic. Lindbergh’s flight took 33½ hours in a tiny, one-seater, single engine plane made of wood and cloth, lacking even a front window. It was hailed as the ‘wonder of the world’.

Our trans-Atlantic flight took about 6 hours. We slept most of the way in the reclining beds and we watched a movie. They also served us two meals. Lindbergh brought along some sandwiches.

The world has changed a lot since 1927, when Lindbergh made his historic flight. Sometimes, we lose sight of that.

This remarkable transformation, all of it, took place within my father-in-law’s lifetime.

At dinner, I asked Ken about his experiences in the Second World War. He served in the British navy, assigned to Alexandria, in Egypt. At that time, Britain was still the British Empire and Britain ruled one-quarter of the world’s surface and also ruled one-quarter of the world’s population. Today, they are down to a few islands, and maybe Scotland, if they stay lucky.

But, prior to the war and signing up with the Navy, Ken had grown up and lived in London. This was during the Blitz, the German bombing of the city, and he recounted that as well – walking past houses that had been simply blown to oblivion overnight, and never knowing when or if you were going to get hit.

As we chatted, his wife of 60 plus years, Anne, who was sitting next to him also joined in.

She recalled that as a child in a small English village, they had no running water. Her mother had to go to the well in the center of the village and fill jugs each day. They had no central heating – all of the heat, and the cooking, was provided by an open fire. They had no indoor plumbing, but rather an outhouse behind the house. And no electricity, at least in the earliest days. They had no refrigerator, but instead an ice box that would, when it was available, be stocked with a block of ice to keep food cool.

She remembered the first car in the village, the first phone. She went on to become a head teacher. Ken became an accountant.

The transitions in the course of their lives, from the time they were born until the present is, well, mind-boggling. The changes they have seen and personally experienced represent a transformation so massive that, frankly, personal computers and iPhones (he is quite good with his), which we think of as major are, in fact, minor events.

When Ken and Anne were born, the world was, in many ways, far closer to what it had been for more than 500 years in the past, maybe a thousand. Most transport was done by animal power or walking. Agriculture was largely driven by animal power as well. Modern medicine was virtually unknown. You could die of a simple infection. Penicillin only came into public use in 1942! Last year Ken had laser cataract surgery and a few years before, an artificial replacement knee.

Automobiles, airplanes, telephones, refrigeration, running water, central heating, electricity, modern medicine, television, radio – the changes that their one lifetime has encompassed was probably the greatest transformation that any generation has ever seen, or for that matter, is ever likely to see.

We like to complain that ‘things are bad’. This is particularly true in this election cycle. Things are terrible. Things have never been worse.

What we are lacking is a sense of history.

Talk to a 90 year old the next chance you get. I think you will see that things are not quite so bad after all.

This Stroke Victim Was Jailed For Smoking Pot And Couldn’t Afford $100 Bail. He Died In Custody.

WASHINGTON ― When Jamycheal Mitchell, a mentally ill 24-year-old, died at Hampton Roads Regional Jail last August after his arrest for a $ 5 theft, reporters and state officials jumped to investigate. The jail has since come under intense scrutiny, and last week Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring requested a federal civil rights investigation into the conditions inside the facility.

But less than three months after Mitchell died, a 60-year-old man named Mark Goodrum, who faced a misdemeanor charge for smoking marijuana in his own home, was rushed from the same jail to a nearby medical center, where he died.

Goodrum’s death, unlike Mitchell’s, did not receive news coverage. Most jail deaths, even at controversial facilities like Hampton Roads, don’t attract the attention of the national media or state attorneys general. So Goodrum’s death was reported for the first time in The Huffington Post’s jail deaths investigation, which set out to record every jail death that took place in the year after Sandra Bland died in Texas on July 13, 2015. Only Goodrum’s name and date of death ― Nov. 13, 2015 ― appeared on the state records we obtained through a public records request. Now we have more details.

Goodrum had severe medical issues, and although there are well-documented problems with medical care at Hampton Roads Regional Jail, it is not yet clear whether jail officials are at fault in his death. 

What we do know is that Goodrum spent a month in custody, and that he only ended up there because he couldn’t come up with $ 100 to purchase his freedom — all for smoking marijuana in his own home.

The Huffington Post was able to piece together some of the details of Goodrum’s story through interviews, public records requests and a review of court records and social media. 

On the afternoon of Jan. 8, 2014, two city police officers were dispatched to a towering apartment building in Newport News, Virginia, after residents complained about the smell of marijuana on the first floor. In a report, an officer and his partner reported detecting a “strong odor of marijuana” as they approached the door. When they knocked, Mark Goodrum answered. 

Although much of the report is redacted, records indicate that Goodrum was cited for misdemeanor possession of marijuana, and material suspected to be marijuana was seized from the home. The victim in the report was listed as the “Commonwealth of Virginia.”

Public records indicate that Goodrum was soon evicted from that apartment. He missed his first court date, then suffered a serious medical setback.

“He had a stroke,” Elvis Blunt, a friend who had served as caretaker for Goodrum, said in an interview. “He lost all movement on his right side, and then he was an amputee so [he] only had one leg, and that was on his left side, and his right leg didn’t work no more. He was pretty much bedridden.” 

As he continued dealing with his medical issues, Goodrum missed another court date. He faced two additional charges for failure to appear, and warrants were put out for his arrest.

Goodrum didn’t exactly hide his love of marijuana. His Facebook cover photo was an American flag rolling paper filled with buds, and his last name on the social network was a marijuana reference. (Elvis Blunt, on the other hand, really is named Elvis Blunt.) When a friend started a crowdfunding campaign for Goodrum, he wrote a post reassuring potential donors that he wouldn’t be spending the money on marijuana. But Blunt, who said he has spent time in prison, said that Goodrum was just a marijuana user, not a dealer.

“He couldn’t go nowhere,” Blunt said. “That’s just what he did to cope with his pain.”

Court records show that Goodrum fell behind on rent at another apartment shortly before his death. Goodrum did not show up in court ― he may have been unable to ― and a default judgment was entered against him on Oct. 9, 2015. Officers arrested him a few days later.

“When he got evicted, the police came and found out he had the warrants, and they locked him up,” Blunt said.

Goodrum “was all right until he got locked up,” Blunt said. “When he got locked up, he died.”

Goodrum arrived at Hampton Roads Regional Jail on Oct. 14, 2015, Lt. Col. Eugene Taylor, an assistant superintendent at the jail, told HuffPost. Goodrum was being held on two bonds for $ 1,000, one secured and one unsecured. If he’d had $ 100, he likely could have paid a bail bondsman a 10 percent fee and been released until his court date. Like thousands of other people in the U.S. every day, Goodrum only remained locked up because of his lack of funds.

“There’s widespread evidence that cash bonds don’t do a thing to ensure an appearance, and people should not be held just because they can’t post a bond,” said Maria Jankowski, deputy executive director of the Virginia Indigent Defense Commission, which certifies lawyers to represent indigent clients in court. “It’s unfortunate and wrong, if you want my opinion, but I’ve seen it happen.”

Goodrum was represented by a public defender, according to a Newport News court official. Neither the public defender nor the judge who oversaw the case responded to a request for comment.

“He was all right until he got locked up… When he got locked up, he died.”

Goodrum did have serious medical issues. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Virginia told HuffPost that Goodrum died of “end stage renal disease” ― that is, kidney disease ― and that he had a history of “hemodialysis, hypertension, anemia of chronic disease, peripheral vascular disease, tobacco use, diabetes mellitus, and history of stroke contributing.”

But Hampton Roads Regional Jail was recently named the deadliest jail in Virginia by the Richmond Times-Dispatch, which noted that inmates there died nearly nine times more often than at any local or regional jails in Virginia over the past three years. The Huffington Post’s analysis places Hampton Roads Regional Jail among the deadliest jails in the U.S., with more deaths than some facilities several times its size.

Reviews of records kept by NaphCare, the jail’s former medical provider, “raised significant concerns regarding the quality of assessment, care, follow-up, and documentation,” according to the Virginia Office of the State Inspector General.

Although NaphCare is no longer in charge of medical operations at the facility, simply changing up the medical provider “offers limited promise of improvement in care or documentation in the absence of a change in oversight practices,” the State Inspector General report said. A federal civil rights lawsuit filed by Jamycheal Mitchell’s family alleges that NaphCare and its employees “failed, among other things, to carry out basic procedures and provide proper care” at Hampton Roads Regional Jail.

Goodrum’s daughter, who did not respond to HuffPost’s requests for comment, wrote after his death that she was disturbed by what happened to her father.

“I am besides myself with regret that he was alone in his final hours and had been in the jail last month on some ridiculous weed charge,” she wrote in an online tribute. “He deserved better.”

In the meantime, Hampton Roads Regional Jail is currently accepting applications for guard positions. Although a pending charge of misdemeanor marijuana possession may have kept a poor person like Goodrum locked up there for a month, a similar conviction wouldn’t necessarily keep candidates off the guard force. Only convictions involving “drugs other than marijuana” are automatically disqualifying.

Last month, another man, 60-year-old Henry Clay Stewart, died at Hampton Roads Regional Jail. Stewart, locked up for violating probation on a shoplifting charge, was barely able to eat for two weeks and was vomiting blood and begging guards for help before he died, according to stories published last week by the Richmond Times-Dispatch and The Virginian-Pilot.

Henry Stewart’s mother, Martha, who has terminal lung cancer, wondered in an interview with The Virginian-Pilot whether others have died at Hampton Roads Regional Jail without anyone noticing. “Who knows how many have died in there and they got away with it?” she said.

In addition to Jamycheal Mitchell and Mark Goodrum, The Huffington Post logged four more deaths at Hampton Roads Regional Jail between July 13, 2015, and July 13, 2016:

  • William Thrower, 69, died on March 20 of acute gallstone pancreatitis with hypertensive atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease contributing.
  • Christopher Boyce died on March 23 of hepatic failure with hepatitis C and cirrhosis contributing. 
  • Ronnie Lee Proffitt, 69, died on April 27 of acute coronary insufficiency due to congestive heart failure. 
  • Valerie Anderson, 60, died on May 26, the day after she was transferred from Hampton Roads Regional Jail to a mental health facility. Her family was never notified of her death.

Although the state of Virginia logged just 27 jail deaths in 2013 and averaged 38 deaths a year from 2000 to 2013, HuffPost identified 50 deaths between July 13, 2015, and July 13, 2016, which would be the second highest number of jail deaths recorded in the state in a single year since 2000.

Angle of Descent, Part II — Seeds of Despair

2016-08-31-1472603074-5248589-AngleofDescent2.jpg

(Introduction / Part One / Part Two / Part Three / Part Four)

From Part I:
Somehow we have arrived at a moment in time when the entrance of a perceived tough and cunning figure with no need to talk in full sentences has become the advent of a savior, or at least a version of one from the bowels of World Wide Wrestling. What kind of savior is this? What collective pain can account for something so bizarre that if someone told me this was occurring in a parallel universe, I would ask how it was possible?

And so I did. I began asking what was behind the media’s focus on the angry white electorate, as if anger somehow explained the collective pull toward driving off a cliff and yelling “Freedom!”

***

The starting place for me was learning just how few of us, white or minority, have a college education. And how without a college education, one is set upon by the wolves of illness, debt, and unemployment. How could this be? How is it that a college degree, though barely a starting point to get by in today’s economy, is beyond the reach of so many?

One hundred years ago, it was a novel idea that all children should go to high school. It wasn’t until 1930 that most children did. But, as Bill Gates has pointed out, high schools were never designed to send children onward to a bachelor’s degree. They were designed to prepare a workforce that could follow rules designed for factories and the emerging industrial economy. And high schools met the low bar that was expected of them.

Estimates exist that, even today, only 25% of high school graduates have the skills needed to succeed academically in college. It was not until 2011 that the census bureau reported that 30% of adults in the United States had attained a bachelor’s degree, and the figure remained about the same in the 2014 census (32%), which means about 142 million Americans do not. And while it is true that the percentage of African Americans and Latinos graduating with a bachelor’s degree is even lower than whites, the clear majority (64%) of white men and women over 25 years old are also without one.

The consequence is that large swaths of our population are economically marooned, caught between low-wage jobs on the one hand and the whims of corporate employers looking to automate or move jobs offshore on the other. Beginning in 1977, real wages for working-class men and women remained stagnant or declined over the next 30 years. For example, if the actual value of the minimum wage, $ 2.30, in 1977 was worth about $ 8 in today’s dollars, then the minimum wage in 2007, $ 7.50, was worth even less — $ 6, due to inflation. The same was true generally for the majority of working-class jobs, paying an average of $ 31,000 in today’s dollars but stagnant over almost an entire work life beginning in 1977. And this was all happening at the same time that income disparities between the working class and financial elites exploded.

Prosperity was not disappearing from the American landscape, but simply shifting. In roughly the same 30-year period when growth in workers’ wages was slowing down to a crawl, individual wealth became so concentrated that the 400 richest billionaires in the United States had an accumulated wealth equal to half that of the U.S. population (150 million people).

The staggering inequities of wealth were captured in the rising ratios between CEO pay and average annual wages for nonsupervisory labor — 20:1 in the early 1970s, doubling by the end of the decade, and then continuing on a Mount Everest-like climb to 376:1 by 2000. To put this in perspective, the average CEO compensation in 2007 was $ 18.8 million, compared with $ 31,000 for the average worker with only a high school degree and $ 15,000 for a minimum-wage job — a ratio of 1,253:1.

If these numbers aren’t troubling enough, the great recession in 2008 appeared proof that no one, even the wealthy, was minding the store. A shift in perception was taking place in the collective from a belief that success was a function of merit and effort to a recognition that the system was rigged.

“What has happened in recent years,” summarized Warren Buffett in 2012, was that “we were told a rising tide would lift all boats, but the rising tide has lifted all yachts.” What many failed to see was that our economic system was not so much rigged as designed to benefit the wealthy. And without a clear understanding of how this was accomplished, many of us were left to simply identify enemies and scapegoats. Was it the 1% we should be angry with? Wall Street hedge fund managers? Banks? Immigrants? Or those we deemed too lazy or criminal to find success? It was a muddle.

The 3 Forces: The Perfect Storm Making Medical Errors the 3rd Leading Cause of Death

I previously posted twice on the scientific review paper led by Hopkins’ researcher Martin Makary, MD, that concluded medical errors are the nation’s third leading cause of death.

2016-09-05-1473108332-3523994-Medicaldeaths.jpg

The raw estimate of 251,000 deaths per year is mind-numbing. What is even more disturbing is that the morbidity and mortality seems to be intractable. The number is not heading south, despite the 100,000 Lives Campaign from the Institute for Healthcare Improvement. Medicine’s initiative to just-say-no to over-performance of services, Choosing Wisely: Things Providers Should Question has also not turned the tide. The estimate is up from the seminal work in 2000 from Barbara Starfield, MD, MPH that put the medical industry’s death rate at 225,000 per year.

Since the number doesn’t seem to be moving, reason suggests that powerful forces are holding the stasis. What are the barriers, then? My reflections led to a column in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine that is summarized here. Might it be the case that these 3 forces, together, will always create such havoc?


2016-09-05-1473108544-9342736-pillspain.jpg

  1. The production focus of the medical industry Both CFOs of medical delivery organizations and the 80/20 rule of the insurers perversely incentivize doing more – and working faster. It’s why the best players in regular medicine are promoting a revolution toward the Triple Aim and a “value-based” orientation. The present industry errs on the side of doing more in tertiary care while also promoting the fewest minutes possible of primary care practitioner contact. Produce!
  2. The limited state of quality decision-making tools/evidence We wouldn’t have a move for “evidence-based medicine” if medicine was already in that category. The most frank statement on this topic that I have heard recently was from a University of Pittsburgh Medical Center CMO that in regular medicine “only about a quarter of what we do has strong evidence and we only do that about half the time.”
  3. The reductive biomedical mindset In this industry, research, delivery, and payment each dance around a pole planted in our bodies by the dominance of the idea of a single agent, pharmaceutical, quick fix. The industry favors simplistic assessment and reductive prescription. Typical practice favors myopia.

Look at the cumulative effects. An industrial orientation to push to do more, faster, of what is most productive, remunerative (and dangerous). Making matters worse, this perversely-incented situation is guided by grossly incomplete evidence. Compounding the potential for misguided choices is that the evidence that is relied upon – when it exists – is a function of tunnel vision. The evidence base is infused by philosophically reductive preference for biomedical indicators rather than the complexity of the whole human being who walks through the door.

2016-09-06-1473174963-5324502-perfectstorm.jpg

Here is one way to look at the portrait that emerges. Think of a hormonally-hyped, know-it-all and intoxicated adolescent at the wheel of a car: fast-paced activity amid tremendous ambiguity and compromised vision. Is this not a perfect storm for running a car into a telephone pole? Or to guarantee high levels of medical error and medical death?

Integrative health and medicine bring to this deeply and chronically embedded calculus of US medicine the revolutionary requirement to examine the whole person and system. Then, as holistically, the job of the practitioner team is to use all appropriate products, practitioners and practitioners. Placing the whole person at the center of care disrupts the focus on production, and on the biomarkers. The dance with evidence shifts. As such, the integrative health model is a fulcrum to overturn the tables of the industry’s status quo.

The suggestion from this perfect storm is that we will not end medical deaths by focusing on excising errors from the existing way of doing business. It is important that we seek to engage these reductive solutions, through campaigns for hand-washing and other such 100,000 Lives methods. Yet at the same time, we need to acknowledge – as the value-based medicine movement is doing – that our present orientation in the way we do the business of medicine is and always will be a massive, guaranteed, error and death generator.

I believe that this is commonsense. Yet the Catch 22 for medical reform is that commonsense appears not to be an attribute of a reductive mind, but of a whole system one.

MDG Gap Task Force Report 2010

MDG Gap Task Force Report 2010


In September 2010, world leaders will take stock of MDG achievements to date at the High-level Plenary Meeting of the United Nations General Assembly. Much progress has been made since 2000, but there is still a great deal more to be achieved in order to fulfill the promise of the MDGs. In this sense, the global partnership for development stands at a critical juncture, with only five years left until the 2015 deadline to delivery on the commitments made and to achieve the MDGs. Remaining gaps are still very large and there have been setbacks because of the global food, energy and financial crises. The deadline for commitments in a number of crucial areas (including increased aid volume, improved aid effectiveness, and the conclusion of the Doha Round of trade negotiations) is 2010, but there is little prospect of successful delivery. The 2010 issue of the report identifies the implementation gaps in the commitments made under MDG 8 and provides recommendations on how to address them, on strengthening the global partnership, and ultimately supporting developing countries in achieving the MDGs.

Arizona GOP Targets John McCain’s Re-Election Challenger With ‘Wanted’ Poster

WASHINGTON ― The Arizona Republican Party on Thursday targeted the re-election challenger of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) with a “wanted” poster that alludes to gun violence, drawing criticism from Democrats and gun-control advocates, including former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.).

The poster portrays Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (D-Ariz.) as an “absentee” politician and shows bullet holes around her picture.

Democrats, including state Democratic Party Chair Alexis Tameron, criticized the image and suggested it was insensitive to the 2011 Arizona mass shooting that nearly killed Giffords.

McCain’s 2008 vice presidential running mate, Sarah Palin, used similar imagery in 2010. During that year’s midterm elections, Palin’s PAC targeted vulnerable House Democrats who had voted for President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act on a map that marked the representatives’ districts with crosshairs. 

Among those targeted were Giffords and Kirkpatrick.

Giffords’ gun-control advocacy group, Americans for Responsible Solutions, condemned the new anti-Kirkpatrick poster and asked for an apology from the Arizona GOP.

“In a state and country that know the toll of gun violence too well, there is no room for invoking the use of firearms in our politics,” Giffords said in a statement to The Huffington Post. “Our political leaders have the responsibility to avoid a descent into messages that might suggest that elections are settled anywhere else than at the ballot box. We urge Arizonans of every political stripe to join us in asking the Arizona Republican Party to refrain from using this irresponsible imagery and to apologize.”

A spokesperson for McCain’s campaign did not return a request for comment. The five-term incumbent is facing a surprisingly close race against Kirkpatrick

The Arizona GOP has previously used gun-related images for campaign purposes. Just months after the shooting that gravely wounded Giffords, Republicans in Pima County, where the shooting took place, held a fundraiser that included a raffle for the same kind of handgun used in the shooting. The condemnation generated so much attention that organizers added a second gun to the raffle.

Why I Forgave My Brother’s Killer

I forgave my brothers killer and it changed my life

January 31, 2006 is a day that is etched in the history of my mind forever. It is the day that my brother’s life was taken abruptly from him for reasons unknown to those who love him. I will never forget the call that has subsequently changed my life, it was 3:00am and I was living up North working in a remote camp with barely any cell service, so when my phone started ringing at that early hour I was quite confused as I answered. There is nothing that could have prepared me for the words that met me on the other end, it was my father calling me to say “Call your mother, your brother’s been shot”. I had no idea what he was talking about as I frantically tried to get through to my mother, hands shaking as I punched each number in hopes of reaching her. When I couldn’t get mom on the phone I called my sister next and the first words out of her mouth dropped me to my knees “He’s gone to a better place”. I was so confused how did this happen? Why did this happen? Was this actually happening? Where was my mother?

After a few phone calls to other members of our family I was able to piece together what had happened and came to the quick realization that my brother was dead. To some degree this came as no surprise as he had led a very unsavoury life for many of his short years, he was in and out of jail and battled with addiction for as long as I could remember. Though he was troubled in his heart and his life, he was one of the most loyal, generous and loving people I have ever known. Due to his addictions and the people he was involved with, our family had often spoken about being surprised if he made it past 21. I think in hindsight we all knew he would be taken early but figured it would have been on his own accord.

For years this event cast a shadow of grief over our family, understandably my mother was distraught for years after and to some degree still is. I can remember having to check the back of my car every time I got into it at night because I was scared that someone was in the back seat waiting to shoot me. When I would be driving my car alone I was always thinking that other drivers were going to pull a gun on me if I cut them off.

The sadness that I witnessed my parents experiencing was so difficult as there was no words that could offer any real comfort. My brother left behind a young daughter when he passed, one that he was never quite able to get to know and parent like he would have wanted to. Our family dynamic changed, with each member grieving in their own way and not really understanding how the others were dealing with their pain. Where closeness should have developed and strengthened, we experienced separation, frustration, judgement and sorrow.

10 years has passed since that day and I realized that I was still experiencing so many confusing and consuming feelings surrounding his death because we never really had closure. His killer was never identified (though there have been many stories over the years, no one has ever been charged), his case is still an open investigation and his belongings are evidence. My mother every year goes to the police station and asks what they have been doing to find his killer, and every year is not satisfied with the answer. This experience, and the person responsible was still taking up so much of our space internally and I came to the realization after a conversation with my mom, that we had given him far more than he intended to take. We had been giving this person our happiness, our trust, our energy for years and years and that didn’t make sense to me any longer. He had taken 10 years of our lives along with taking my brother, neither of which he deserved.

I made the decision this year that this year would be my year of forgiveness. In order to really LIVE the rest of my life I had to be free of the things that were weighing me down, and the anger I felt towards his killer was the heaviest energy I could think of. Deciding to forgive this person was incredibly difficult for me, as a part of me felt like I would be lessening his life, or my love/loyalty to him in doing so. After some serious talking to myself and asking guidance from my brother, the conclusion was clear. Forgiveness wasn’t a weakness done out of disrespect, rather it was strength, love and courage triumphing.

Since offering forgiveness, I have experienced an enlightening and awakening of self that I have never experienced. I have been able to realize the power of our emotions and words, and how what we think, speak and feel impacts not only our selves but all of those in our energetic path. By releasing my emotional hold on this experience, I have been able to open myself up to more of the wonderful and incredible that life has to offer. When we are holding on so tightly to the poor experiences in our lives, we aren’t allowing ourselves to attach to the opportunities all around us for growth, empowerment and self betterment. In paying respect to the departed and in honouring myself, it became to clear that forgiveness was the only option. Attack with love and you will drive out the hate. Hate in the hearts of our people is what causes situations like this to exist and to keep our global society in a saddened and disheartened state. When we are able to light the night with the warm glow of kindness, compassion, forgiveness and love, we light the way for others who are lost.

My brother was lost for many years, trapped in a life that wasn’t meant for him but lacked the ability to ever fully disengage. His death was a new beginning for him, and for his family. He taught me during his time on earth that loyalty is favoured above all, the forgiveness and release of emotion towards his killer is allowing me to live the life I was meant for. By living my best life and not allowing someone else’s actions to guide my emotions, is the best form of bravery and loyalty to the lessons he taught me in his life I can imagine.

To my brother, I thank you for the teachings you shared and the strength you instilled.

Study Finds Strong Link Between Zika And Guillain-Barre Syndrome

A comparison of rates of Guillain-Barre syndrome before and after Zika arrived in seven countries has found a strong association between the virus and the illness, researchers from the Pan American Health Organization said on Wednesday.

The current Zika outbreak was first detected in Brazil last year and has since spread across the Americas and the Caribbean.

Pregnant women are considered to be at greatest risk because the virus can cause severe birth defects, including microcephaly, which is marked by small head size and underdeveloped brains. In Brazil, Zika has been linked to more than 1,800 cases of microcephaly.

The first alarms over Zika in Brazil, however, occurred months before microcephaly cases emerged, as adults recovering from Zika infections appeared to have higher-than-normal rates of Guillain-Barre, an autoimmune disorder in which the body attacks itself in the aftermath of an infection, typically occurring in the days following an illness.

In a report published as a letter to the editor of the New England Journal of Medicine, Dr. Marcos Espinal, director of the department of communicable disease at PAHO – the regional arm of the World Health Organization – and colleagues analyzed rates of Guillain-Barre syndrome and Zika in Bahia, Brazil, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Honduras, Suriname and Venezuela.

They evaluated a total of 164,237 confirmed and suspected cases of Zika virus disease and 1,474 cases of Guillain-Barre that occurred between April 1, 2015 to March 31, 2016, using data collected through official country reports.

Their analysis found a close association between increases in Zika cases and increases in Guillain-Barre. As Zika infections waned in a country, incidence of Guillain-Barre waned as well, the team found.

Compared with pre-Zika rates, Guillain-Barre increased 172 percent in the state of Bahia, Brazil, which was hard hit by the Zika outbreak. They saw similar increases in other countries, with Guillain-Barre cases rising 211 percent in Colombia, 150 percent in the Dominican Republic, 100 percent in El Salvador, 144 percent in Honduras, 400 percent in Suriname and 877 percent in Venezuela.

The team found no link between Guillain-Barre and dengue, a closely related virus that had been suspected as a contributor to the increase in cases.

Based on their findings, the researchers said Zika and Guillain-Barre “are strongly associated,” however, they said more study is needed to prove direct causation.

Guillain-Barre causes gradual weakness in the legs, arms and upper body, and in some cases, temporary paralysis. Patients often require intensive care and a respirator to support breathing.

Given these demands, the researchers said Zika imposes “a substantial burden” on populations in Latin America and the Caribbean, where some 500 million people are at risk.

A Pirate Flag for Monterey

A Pirate Flag for Monterey


In 1819, Hypolite Bouchard, a corsair with a license from the newly independent country of Argentina to harass Spain’s possessions in the New World, decided to make a raid on the California colony. At this time, Monterey – having successfully survived drought, famine, and the constant demands of Spain for taxes far beyond her due – was probably the richest of the Alta California settlements. Knowing this, Bouchard and his men decided to strike a decisive blow for Argentina by sacking and burning Monterey. Loot in the form of gold, jewels, and plentiful food stores would mean not only riches for himself and his crew, but would replenish Argentina’s none too lavish coffers. Young Miguel San Lucas Obanion y Boronda, Mike to his family and friends, is returning from the Orient with his uncle, Captain Roger Obanion of the merchant ship “Boston Belle”. They learn of Bouchard’s plans on a stop in Hawaii and rush back to California to warn of the pirates’ intent. Things go badly for the “Boston Belle”, though, and Mike becomes a prisoner of the pirates. Somehow, they must get free and lead a resistance against the invaders. This book is the true but almost unknown story of Bouchard’s raid on Monterey. Hypolite Bouchard was a real person, as are many of the characters in the story. Others are people who might have been. They are fictitious, though many of the names used were actually present in California at the time. But it doesn’t matter. Whether real or fictitious, people like these did exist then, in a land that was almost a heaven for a few years, until trouble fell so heavily on it.

“The New Trump”? Or is Character Destiny? (See “The New Nixon”)

2014-02-03-BothSidesNowLogoPlaincolhirescopy1.jpg

LISTEN HERE:

By Mark Green

Trump begins the week with the WSJ urging the RNC to cut him loose if he can’t turn around his floundering campaign by Labor Day…and ends it with the Bannon-Manafort shuffle. Cooke & Lamarche laugh off the chance he can stop scratching his attention-getting-disorder itch. GOP prospects Nov. 9?

Trump’s policy & personnel. We listen to his anti-ISIS speech explaining how he’d utilize joint operations with allies, cyber-tech, intelligence-gathering — and “extreme, extreme extreme vetting” — to defeat ISIS. Charles Cooke is not against ideological screening per se “so long as it’s not religious screening” since the First Amendment doesn’t apply to non-citizens applying to get into US. Gara Lamarche notes that his policy prescriptions are precisely what the Obama administration is now doing…and his version of “extreme vetting” sounds beyond the pale.

The Host asks Cooke to tell our listeners what Breitbart News is and who its recent head, Steven Bannon, the new campaign CEO, is. “Bannon turned an insurgent libertarian right-wing site into a home for right-wing white nationalists. That is not pleasant to read or be. It’s a disgrace that a major party nominee associates with Breitbart.” He adds the the hire of Kelly Anne Conway as campaign manager is different because “she’s a good person with some talents.” (Host agrees on Conway, who was a BSN regular for a couple of years…except that her on-message assertions (Trump has “humilty”) and denunciations (HRC corrupt liar) renders her a Trumpian version of Baghdad Bob, albeit with a smile.)

Also, says Charles: “While fear-mongering often works and is done by both sides, it’s unlikely to succeed in 2016. While there are problems with the economy and crime, it’s nothing like the riots, assassinations and crime of 1968 that Nixon exploited.”

Net-net on the personnel changes? Gara argues that the Bannon appointment shows Trump wants not to win but just solidify his reactionary white-high-school male base for later commercialization. We’re reminded of the metaphor of Charles Sykes, a conservative talk show host in Wisconsin, who saw the move as an indication that Trump has entered his political hospice stage where he wants to be comforted by admirers at the end.

Can Trump’s expressed “regrets” for his name-calling and insults help warm up his bellicose persona? Maybe says Cooke, “if he can keep it up or the next three months but, even though the media wants a new story, that’s extraordinarily unlikely.” Gara: ” it’s not in his nature. ” Host: a person who’s gained fame and fortune by living like Andrew Dice Clay for 70 years isn’t very likely to turn into Ellen. Indeed, the next day he mockingly tweeted about Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner. Very presidential. And since we don’t accept declarations of innocence by defendants at face value, it would be, er, credulous to believe the self-serving words of a proven serial liar who changes his views daily.

Ok, assume polls and trends are right and she wins by eight points + — who’s likely to win the battle for the soul of the Republican Party starting Nov. 9: the Trump/Fox/Cruz crowd or the Ryan/National Review/Reformocons team? Charles has a dog in this fight and argues for the latter because “Trump is sui generis — there aren’t any Trump-like Republicans, for example, running for the Senate. And he benefited from an unusual 17 person field [where he stood out]. Successful parties after a defeat can tamp down the excesses and absorb the best of both sides. Democrats too after the election will be split — so let’s see who can best absorb its rebels.”

Gara, however, thinks that the Breitbart crowd more likely to prevail and that “Cruz could then be well positioned.”

The Host dissents from Cooke: The problem is not so much Trump but the angry reactionary base that elevated him — and presumably they’ll be as furiously anti-Hillary as they’ve been anti-Barack. Unless they’re chastised by the 6th popular vote loss in seven presidential elections, they’ll continue to self-marginalize in a country where older Fox viewers are dying off to be replaced by rising and more liberal millennials and minorities. And there’s little reason to believe that, with a Democratic president, the Democrats will be anywhere as divided as the GOP. For one example, Sanders will campaign for Clinton but Cruz won’t for Trump.

Remember Hillary? Trump is not the only nominee to try pre-Fall to fix a this week. Gara applauds the news that Bill Clinton will resign from the Clinton Foundation if his wife becomes president and it will no longer accept foreign or corporate contributions to avoid the appearance of conflicts of interest. Charles isn’t impressed. arguing that it’s largely been a place for Clintonites to be employed and generate profits for them. “Do you really think that they’re grifters out to make more by raising a couple of billion to help advance health and the environment for millions of poor people in 3d world countries? Charles says, “‘it’s both.” Gara insists, “it’s public service.”

Analyze this!
Is it fair for Democrats to assume that Trump is a narcissistic sociopath and for Republicans to assume that Clinton, in Trump’s words, lacks the “stability and stamina” to be president, while Hannity on Fox runs many segments asking “doctors” whether she’s suffering seizures from a fall a couple of years ago?

Gara and Charles think both are wrong to use psychiatric terms to analyze public people not under medical care — which is now called the “Goldwater Rule” after 1000+psychiatrists and psychologists said the ’64 GOP nominee was mentally unfit to serve. Lamarche, however, notes that the Clinton’s diagnosis is especially pernicious since a woman who served four years as a traveling Secretary of State and a vigorous candidate now for 16 months is in any way incapacitated, except as some WebMD docs assert on a partisan network.

*Will Trump’s Collapse sink GOP boats? Four more Democratic senators will make Chuck Schumer not Mitch McConnell the Majority Leader, which the panel agrees is likely. Cooke thinks that three seats are all but gone — Wisconsin, Indiana, Illinois — while several others are iffy, like PA and NH, perhaps NC and Arizona as well. Gara wonders “how can a Republican senator can survive if s/he has to run 8-10 points ahead of the top of the ticket? They have a very delicate dance here” because they can’t live with Trump, who’s so unpopular, but can’t live without him since they need his “low-education” voters.

A Clinton-Schumer-Pelos/or weakened-Ryan D.C. is very different from a Clinton-McConnell-strong Ryan one. While the Clinton agenda won’t be able to run the table due to the filibuster and likely House GOP majority, Ryan will have to deal more with her if his margin of 59 shrinks to say 25, which now appears to be likely.

*Conservative Books. The top three NYT non-fiction best-sellers last Sunday (and top four this Sunday) were all right-wing screeds denouncing Hillary, liberals etc. How come their books sell more than comparable liberal books? Charles — author of the serious non-screed The Conservatarian Manifesto — has some ideas: Readers with money and time are older, more likely to buy books, and skew Republican, while younger voters are less likely to pick up a book than go on-line. Adds Gara: “conservatives are more isolated, angry and aggrieved and more likely to buy a book to see their viewpoints validated.” Adds the Host: unlike MSNBC which rarely promotes an author and has fewer viewers, a show like Hannity puts on any eccentric wight-winger, plugs the book, and it jumps on Amazon.”

These Underwater Yoga Photos Prove The Practice Is Truly Magical

Looking for a reason to hit the yoga mat today? Take a gander at these stunning photos.

The surreal images, which were snapped by photographer Elena Kalis, feature yoga instructor Britta Jade as she masterfully executes yoga poses under water. They’re a truly majestic display of how yoga can be both athletic and a work of art.

The photos are an inspirational reminder that the practice can be one of the best ways to move your body. Research shows yoga can reduce stress and lower your risk for heart disease. It also can improve your sleep and boost your brain function. Not to mention the fact that yoga can be an excellent form of strength training, which can help maintain a healthy weight.

While not everyone can exactly run off to the crystal shores of a remote island to nail these moves, there are some added perks to taking your yoga practice to the water. Studies suggest being near the ocean can make you calmer and more creative. The sea also puts your brain in a more meditative state.

If you’ve been slacking on a yoga routine (or hesitant to try one at all), take a look at the pictures below. Then check out these healthy reasons to prioritize the practice for additional motivation.

Nirvana: achieved.

Health Official Warns Zika Could Spread Across U.S. Gulf

Aug 21 (Reuters) – One of the top U.S. public health officials on Sunday warned that the mosquito-borne Zika virus could extend its reach across the U.S. Gulf Coast after officials last week confirmed it as active in the popular tourist destination of Miami Beach.

The possibility of transmission in Gulf States such as Louisiana and Texas will likely fuel concerns that the virus, which has been shown to cause the severe birth defect known as microcephaly, could spread across the continental United States, even though officials have played down such an outcome.

Concern has mounted since confirmation that Zika has expanded into a second region of the tourist hub of Miami-Dade County in Florida. Miami’s Wynwood arts neighborhood last month became the site of the first locally transmitted cases of Zika in the continental United States.

“It would not be surprising we would see additional cases perhaps in other Gulf Coast states,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the allergy and infectious diseases unit of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), said in an interview on Sunday morning with ABC News.

Fauci noted that record flooding this month in Louisiana – which has killed at least 13 people and damaged some 60,000 homes damaged – has boosted the likelihood Zika will spread into that state.

“There’s going to be a lot of problems getting rid of standing water” that could stymie the mosquito control efforts that are the best way to control Zika’s spread, he said.

U.S. health officials have concluded that Zika infections in pregnant women can cause microcephaly, a birth defect marked by small head size that can lead to severe developmental problems in babies. The connection between Zika and microcephaly first came to light last fall in Brazil, which has now confirmed 1,835 cases of microcephaly that it considers to be related to Zika infections in the mothers.

On Friday, Florida Governor Rick Scott confirmed that state health officials had identified five cases of Zika believed to be contracted in Miami Beach.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention told pregnant women they should avoid the trendy area and suggested those especially worried about exposure might consider avoiding all of Miami-Dade County.

NIH’s Fauci on Sunday said the conditions of most of the country make it unlikely there would be a “diffuse, broad outbreak,” even though officials need to prepare for that possibility.

He compared it with diseases such as Dengue, which is endemic in certain tropical and subtropical regions of the world but rarely occurs in the continental United States. In Miami’s Wynwood area, experts have seen “substantial” knockdowns of mosquito populations.

Still, its containment is more complicated because Zika can be sexually transmitted, Fauci said.

“This is something that could hang around for a year or two,” he said.

The World Health Organization has said there is strong scientific consensus that Zika can also cause Guillain-Barre, a rare neurological syndrome that causes temporary paralysis in adults.

Groundbreaking Lawsuit Targets ‘Extortionist’ Cities Near Ferguson That Lock Poor People In Cages

ST. LOUIS ― Civil rights lawyers sued 13 St. Louis-area cities in federal court on Tuesday, alleging they violated the constitutional rights of poor people by locking them in squalid jail cells in connection with minor traffic infractions ― a practice that contributed to the tension that boiled over in Ferguson two years ago after a police officer shot an 18-year-old to death.

The lawsuit, filed on the two-year anniversary of the killing of Michael Brown, targets the city of St. Ann and 12 smaller municipalities ― some with just a few hundred residents ― that use St. Ann’s jail to hold municipal debtors under what the lawsuit calls “inhumane” conditions.

Brown’s death helped bring attention to a rigged municipal courts system in St. Louis County that allowed municipalities to use their courts to pad city coffers rather than administer justice. An in-depth investigation by the Justice Department revealed a policing and court system in Ferguson that treated residents as “potential offenders and sources of revenue” rather than constituents to be protected, resulting in a recent agreement to reform the city’s policing practices. Nearby municipalities have engaged in the very same unconstitutional practices, according to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit, which seeks class-action status, represents a broad challenge the fractured municipal court system in St. Louis County and has the potential to help bring about widespread changes in a region where municipalities have treated their courts as cash generators.

ArchCity Defenders, a civil rights organization in St. Louis that has aggressively challenged the region’s municipal courts, and Arnold & Porter, a Washington-based law firm, filed the suit on behalf of 13 people they say have been “terrorized” by the municipalities.

The municipalities operated a “modern day police state and debtors’ prison scheme that has no place in American society today,” the suit says.

“I’ve never encountered anything like this,” said Robert Weiner, a partner at Arnold & Porter. His remark echoed a comment by the head of the Police Executive Research Forum, who said the “dysfunctional” system in St. Louis County was unlike anything he’d seen

The suit, which also named the cities of Edmundson, Normandy, Cool Valley, Velda City, Beverly Hills, Pagedale, Calverton Park, St. John, Bel Ridge, Wellston, Velda Village Hills, and Bellefontaine Neighbors, alleges:

Defendants have abused the legal system to bestow a patina of legitimacy on what is, in reality, extortion. If private parties had created and implemented this scheme, enforced it by threatening and imposing indefinite incarceration, and milked poor families of millions of dollars, the law would punish them as extortionists, or even racketeers, and the community would take steps to prevent them from exploiting the most vulnerable of its members. These predatory practices are no more legitimate ― and indeed, are more outrageous ― when perpetrated under color of law.

The lawsuit accuses the municipalities of operating “de facto debtors prisons” used “as a tool to cow poor people into financing municipal government.” The system places poor defendants into a “Kafkaesque web of indignities and incarceration that plunge the victim ever deeper into poverty,” the suit says.

Inmates incarcerated by St. Ann, the suit alleges, are held under horrific conditions that include overcrowded cells, “reused” blankets, “disgusting and unsanitary” mattresses, and “unhealthy and nearly inedible” food. Inmates were not allowed to shower until they had been held at the jail for a week, the lawsuit says, and trash piles in cells gave off a “very pungent odor.”

One legally blind plaintiff alleges officers refused to allow her to keep her glasses. Another says she was denied her medications, and that guards called her “crazy” and an “African child.” Yet another says she was held in a cell with a schizophrenic inmate announcing she wanted to kill someone.

Blake Strode, a St. Louis native who attended Harvard Law, interned at the Justice Department and now works for ArchCity Defenders, said there’s been a misconception in recent months that the problems in St. Louis County municipal courts have been addressed. In reality, he said, it’s been “business as usual” for many cities in the region.

“This is really a widespread, structural problem in the region, and so we thought we needed a more widespread, systematic attack on that practice,” Strode said in an interview. “Our goal is not to bankrupt every city in St. Louis County, but our clients have suffered serious constitutional violations, and they’re owed something for that. So our priority is to make the case for our clients, to push for the policy changes, and to make sure that they are compensated for the losses they’ve suffered.”

By imprisoning those who can’t afford to pay fines, the municipalities have violated rights of due process and equal protection guaranteed under the 14th Amendment, the lawsuit says. The lawsuit also alleges violations of the Fourth Amendment because the municipalities issued warrants without probable cause, as well as violations for the Sixth Amendment due to failure to provide for effective assistance of counsel.

ArchCity Defenders recently reached a settlement of nearly $ 5 million with the city of Jennings in a similar lawsuit filed on behalf of an estimated 2,000 people who had been jailed over unpaid debt. Jennings also agreed to significant changes, including an end to the cash bail system. lawsuit against Ferguson is still pending.

A plaintiff in the new class-action case, Donya Pierce, was previously part of a lawsuit against the tiny city of Velda City, which agreed to end its fixed cash bail system in 2015. An organization called Equal Justice Under Law has filed lawsuits against debtors’ prison practices in several other states and had success in stopping unconstitutional bail practices.

Several municipalities named in the lawsuit have imprisoned the lead plaintiff, Quinton Thomas, a 28-year old factory worker, in connection with minor driving-related offenses like running a stop sign, lacking proof of insurance, and improper vehicle registration. Thomas was issued hundreds of dollars in fines in Normandy, a city neighboring Ferguson that shares many of the same issues with using its municipal court to generate revenue. More than 40 percent of Normandy’s revenue came from fines and fees.  

Thomas was fined more than $ 600 from a traffic stop in Normandy. He said he tried to explain to a judge that he could neither afford to pay the full amount, nor the minimum payment of $ 100 the city was demanding. When he asked if he could pay $ 50 toward the fine, the judge said no, he said.

“They told me if I couldn’t do $ 100, they were going to put a warrant out for me,” Thomas said in an interview.

When Thomas was pulled over in 2013, he was arrested on that outstanding warrant from Normandy, as well as on warrants from other cities. Officers took him to jail in St. Ann, where Thomas said everything ― the mattresses, the walls, the floors ― were so dirty he didn’t want to touch anything.

“It was just nasty,” he said. Meals, the lawsuit alleges, consisted of a “bologna sandwich (with greenish meat and hard bread), apple sauce, and black coffee.”

Thomas said he once had to sit in jail for several days just to wait for a direct deposit into his bank account that would allow him to pay the court. He said he lost two jobs because of the time he spent behind bars. He said he was seldom allowed to appear before a judge after being arrested.

“I lost my job and they impounded my vehicle,” Thomas said. “I couldn’t go to work. I couldn’t get a job because a lot of jobs be so far out and you need a car.”

Thomas is employed again, but said he fears being pulled over and thrown into a cage every time he gets inside his car. He’s currently paying the city of St. John, which claims Thomas owes more than $ 500 on what started out as a ticket for less than $ 100.

His offense? A parking violation.

“I got it down to like $ 300, but it was all the way up to $ 560 all for a parking ticket,” he said.

Although the White House and Obama administration have tried to put a spotlight on excessive fines and fees, organizations like ArchCity Defenders and Equal Justice Under Law have been effective in using federal lawsuits to force change. Some advocates have called for the Justice Department to prosecute judges and public officials who have engaged in conspiracies to deprive people of their constitutional rights en masse as part of an effort to raise revenue.

Earlier this year, the Justice Department reminded local courts that some practices that they may consider a “routine administrative matter” ― like forcing defendants to pre-pay a bond or bail before they can schedule a court date ― are unconstitutional. Locking up someone simply because they aren’t able to afford paying a fine, without taking their financial circumstances into account, is a blatant constitutional violation, yet continues to happen with regularity. That won’t change, some advocates say, until the feds start locking up municipal judges.

Missouri lawmakers attempted to rein in municipalities that relied heavily upon municipal court revenue last year, passing bipartisan legislation that lowered the percentage of their budgets that cities were allowed to fund through court fines and fees. That percentage was trimmed from 30 percent to 20 percent statewide, and to 12.5 percent in St. Louis County. But several cities in St. Louis County filed suit challenging the limits, and a circuit judge struck down the county cap because it targeted specific municipalities.

St. Ann kept its revenue flowing after a major mall closed by operating a highway speed trap near the St. Louis airport. St. Ann earned 37 percent of its revenue from court fines and fees in 2013, according to a 2014 report from state-appointed research group Better Together.

Black drivers in St. Ann were nearly 10 percent more likely than whites to get arrested in traffic stops, a disparity similar to the other cities named in the lawsuit.

Nicole Hudson, who worked with the Ferguson Commission, said the lawsuit has the potential to force change rather than wait for those in power to move at their own speed.

“Having a lawsuit like this that is swinging for the fences in this way is going to move the needle on what change looks like and what the universe looks like for everybody,” Hudson said.

Bradley Jiles, 24, said he was strip-searched and forced to sit in a restraint chair for 24 hours while in the Hillsdale jail. Jiles has been jailed more than 10 times in five years for municipal ordinance violations.

Meredith Walker, a 47-year-old mother of two, has been jailed at least 10 times and said she paid more than $ 15,000 in fees over five years ― even though she said she hasn’t been ticketed for a moving violation in more than 15 years. Walker even changed her appearance, according to the lawsuit, “because she discovered that she was stopped by the Defendant Municipalities’ police officers more often when she had dreadlocks in her hair and appeared more masculine.”

Ronald Tucker, 51, was pulled over in 2014 because his car was smoking. The officer ran his name, discovered old traffic warrants from Cool Valley, and took him into custody.

Cool Valley covers less than 0.5 square mile, with a population of just over 1,000 people. A few years back, it disbanded its 10-person police department in part because it ate up more than half of the city’s entire budget.

Tucker, who said he skipped court dates on the old case after he lost his job and feared a judge would lock him up, was incarcerated in Cool Valley for three days in what he called a “dog cage.” Left unsupervised in a holding cell without a bathroom, he sometimes got desperate.

“I was in a cage with no restroom and had two more females in the cell with me and I had to use the restroom real bad,” Tucker said. “I urinated on the floor. I mean, I wasn’t going to do it on myself. I’m a grown man.”

Tucker said he spent several hours locked to a bench before he was booked, which he said was one of the worst experiences of his life. Later, when he suffered an asthma attack, he said jail attendants refused to allow his girlfriend to bring him an inhaler.

While bail is supposed to be set by a judge who evaluates an individual’s circumstances, there was no judicial involvement in Tucker’s incarceration. Tucker said police officers tried to negotiate with him.

“They said if someone come up with $ 150 or $ 175, we’ll let you go,” Tucker told HuffPost. Tucker said he couldn’t reach anyone for money because he only was allowed one five-minute phone call per day.

Tucker spent three days at Cool Valley before being transferred to the St. Louis County Justice Center, where he finally received an inhaler and was bonded out for almost $ 400. But Tucker’s time served was never applied to his outstanding fines, and a warrant for him remained outstanding in Cool Valley.

“I wouldn’t want to see anybody else be treated like me and those females when we were in that cage,” Tucker said. “I don’t have a problem with the law. They have a right to pull us over and make sure we’re right. But if you going to lock me up, lock me up for something major ― not just a ticket.”

Jailing a human being places them in danger, and hundreds of people die in U.S. jails each year. A system that confines individuals not because they pose a threat to public safety, but simply because they owe the government money, should not be accepted, said ArchCity’s Strode.

“I think we have a tendency and a sort of instinct to rationalize these systems that we all come to rely on, and to think that they must be operating in a way that is just and fair, or that it makes some sort of rational sense,” said Strode. “On the most basic level, what we have here is a system in which when you receive a traffic ticket, if you have money, there’s one system. If you don’t have money, there’s another. It’s only if you don’t have money that sitting in jail for days on end ― sometimes weeks on end ― is on the table. And that is fundamentally unjust.”
