What Prison is Like for Davontae in Maximum Security

2 men burst into a house in a Detroit neighborhood where 4 men were watching Monday Night Football and shot them all to death. When the police arrived to begin their investigation, they saw 14 year old Davontae Sanford in his pajamas in the crowd of people wondering why the cops were there. They pinned the murders on him and he's serving 40 years in maximum security prison. Help us free him by sharing this video. Another man confessed to the murders 6 years ago and led police to the murder weapon. For Davontae to still be in prison is unconscionable. Join us in our efforts to free this innocent young man. In this video, Valerie Newman tells what life is like for Davontae in prison. It is very difficult. Share this video so others will know and the pressure on these corrupt cops and prosecutors will increase to the point where they can't cover it up any longer.

Corrupt Cops Don't Want You to Share This Video



While
Police were investigating a murder near his house, a 14 year old
mentally challenged boy went out in his pajamas and asked the police
what was going on. They took him in for questioning, railroaded him into
a confession, and he was sentenced to 40 years in prison. A few months
later a notorious Detroit hit man confessed to the murder and told the
cops where the murder weapon was. They recovered it. For some reason,
the 14 year old is still in prison. Its been many years. His family
would like you to share this video so he can get out of jail. You can
help an innocent man.

The Box: Teens in Solitary Confinement in U.S. Jails, Prisons and Juveni...



The Box" was nominated for a national News and Documentary Emmy in 2015.
Every year, thousands of teens are placed in solitary confinement cells
in juvenile halls, jails and prisons nationwide. This animation tells
the story of Ismael "Izzy" Nazario and the time he spent in solitary
confinement in New York City's Rikers Island jail. This story is based
on an investigation by The Center for Investigative Reporting and was
created using real audio from an interview with Nazario. It features
music from Yasiin Bey, formerly known as Mos Def, and is part of a
larger investigation on juveniles in solitary confinement. http://www.revealnews.org
