Valdosta, Georgia High School teacher has been arrested today on charges of multiple sexual interactions with students, this at a school where a still unsolved student death on the campus, (reportedly murder), the year before. School seems to be an increasingly unsafe prospect in some people’s eyes. Who was told in either of these cases, to advance review of this school’s relationship of students to adults or students to students? What would Deray McKesson do?
Twitter accounts buzz with issues of death and loss of Human Rights. Many young people, from gradeschool through college understand the upsets of social justice calls, and hit social media rightly with videos, comments, links and photos of events unfolding across the world.
Not everyone, not every community gets the professional supports of Deray Mckesson .@deray or of Shaun King @ShaunKing or Amnesty International Rep Netta. These three advocates visible and very involved in multiple cases across the USA monitoring events, reviewing released data and encouraging specific changes in community.
Absent that, remote locations and small towns social justice protests show benefits by taking to social media and to the streets. While families injured by inexplicable and unseen odd processes, the public makes attempts to connect to them, to the surrounding systems and to try to discover what happened to Civil Rights and Human Rights in these terroristic actions against the public, particularly black males, but not exclusively as more and more female victims of like or same actions coming forward now.
Kendrick Johnson case is odd. An unsolved highschool death, in South Georgia has caused rallies, protests at the school, and a walk from Atlanta to this town of Valdosta calling attention to the unexplained or poorly processed death of this young man who would have walked as a senior this spring.
Snail mail does still exist, and letter writing into and outside the community of Valdosta and to State officials regarding Kendrick Johnson’s death is a relevant action. Many changes in the Civil Rights era were brought on by letter writing campaigns, not just by street protests or sit ins.
This video breaks down some questions that have surfaced under .@AnonCrips the Anonymous group rep over the immediate area where this case has happened for Kendrick Johnson, and provides options for locations to mail a letter to the Georgia Child Death Review Board, asking why there isn’t a School Georgia Child Death Review panel, even if only assembled for this case.
Slideshow shows how to tri-fold paper. Since most students in school aren’t required to prepare letters for mailings, it seems this confuses some and is a handy trick.
Sending letters as noted in the video, or even further broadcast as to the groups listed here may bring forward other eyes, resources or changes which will culminate in results moving this Kendrick Johnson case forward, but also could be used in cases like Relisha Rudd, Lennon Lacy, Anne J. Hill, Jessica L. Chambers, Mahhivist Goodblanket and others.
Case data for the Kendrick Johnson case needs to go to the Sheriff (229) 671 2950.
