Virgil Hawkins Monument Petition

Please sign the Virgil Hawkins Petition - Since 2013, Students at the University of Florida have requested a Monument honoring the 1958 court-ordered admission of African-American students to UF.

After almost a decade of Florida’s refusal to comply with U.S. Supreme Court orders, UF ended its segregation policy only after Virgil Hawkins, the plaintiff in the NAACP lawsuit, agreed to withdraw his application for admission in return for an order admitting “qualified negro applicants”.

Ferguson Homicide - Police Report

42 USC Section 1983, homicide, Tampa Civil Rights Attorney, Tampa Civil Rights Lawyer, Florida Civil Rights Lawyer
Ferguson Police Report
In 24 years of trial practice, I have noticed that most minor crimes have police reports of 10 to 30 pages. Kill a man in ‪#‎Ferguson‬ you get a two-pager. Here is Page One. Page Two only lists the victim's name ‪#‎michaelbrown‬ ‪#‎inexcusable‬ . Silence and silence can hide unspeakable horrors committed in the name of law and order. Sunshine is the best disinfectant. 

"Publicity is justly commended as a remedy for social and industrial diseases. Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants; electric light the most efficient policeman."

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd's Media Circus

Lights, Cameras, Action
Polk County Civil Rights cases continue to be filed against a small county Sheriff in Florida, Grady Judd. This site has been tracking the activities of media-darling / Sheriff Grady Judd. You can see that tracking program in action here: Grady Judd Lawsuit Report. We were happy to see the St. Petersburg Times has recognized the Sheriff's activities as grandstanding.

Grady Judd has arrested Mr. Greaves, a man from across the country for writing a controversial book. "Within days of the Greaves caper, Judd called another — what else? — press conference to announce he was yanking all the basketball hoops out of the jail, as if miscreants are plotting crimes in Polk County just so they can get arrested in order to practice their jump shots." So says social commentator Daniel Ruth.

Mr. Ruth also notes Sheriff Judd, "was probably too busy preparing his next press conference to announce a massive crackdown on low-hanging pants." Thanks for the cogent observations, Mr. Ruth.
