Congratulations FREE LA High School Graduating Class of 2014 who walked the stage on Saturday, June 21st. This slide show has three parts that graduates' families and friends saw at the ceremony - 1. The history of suppression and incarceration in LA that the students are working to change; 2. The young people who should have been at graduation who have been killed due to street or police violence; and 3. Photos of the graduates!!!

In 2007, the YJC established FREE LA High School for youth ages 16 to 24 who have been pushed out of school, have disappeared from school districts, and/or who are returning home from juvenile halls, Probation camps, county jail or prison. (System-involved youth are often blocked from returning to school or even to entire school districts because of extreme school discipline policies or court convictions. This discrimination is often carried out illegally, and the YJC is also working to change laws and policies that prevent youth from attending school.)

FREE LA stands for Fight for the Revolution to Educate and Empower Los Angeles. The school supports youth to earn their high school diploma and also trains students in youth and community organizing, social change strategies, movement building and transformative justice.

  • There are now 0 youth prisoners in other countries .
  • Transcript

    • 1. 1. OUT OF L.A. CAME THE BUILDERS OF SCHOOL DE-FUNDING AND MASS INCARCERATION
    • 2. U.S. POLICIES THAT COME OUT OF L.A.: Nixon’s Law and Order backlash after 60s movements leads to mass incarceration of poor people and people of color. The prison population increases 300% in 20 years. Cali and L.A. lead the world in incarceration and harsh sentencing, including creation of JLWOP, Three Strikes, Prop 21 and Prop 9 - all are written and financed from L.A.. Reaganomics including anti-tax movement and Prop 13., the “war on drugs” and war on welfare, and mental health de-institutionalization without community services, all lead to massive increase in homelessness. L.A. creates “planned Skid Row” to force homeless into downtown isolation. U.S. fuels wars against rebellions in Central America. In the 1980s, LAPD and Sheriffs work with U.S. military to teach counter-guerilla tactics, interrogation and torture against civilians. In the 90s and 00s, they return to teach gang suppression when people are deported - (the greatest number from L.A.) Chief Parker introduces military-style policing and brings National Guard into Watts in ‘65. Gates takes militarization further by creating SWAT and CRASH (first gang units).’92 Uprising once again reflects L.A.’s anger over entrenched police brutality. Gates also created DARE. 2007 - Jordan Downs is first community in the U.S. to get GPS surveillance system. L.A. , Riverside first to use GPS monitoring to track people with gang convictions returning home from prison.
    • 3. 2. L.A. CREATED THE US “WAR ON GANGS”
    • 4. 1848 California and the Southwest is annexed into U.S. through illegal war against Mexico. The Thirteenth Amendment to Constitution outlaws slavery except “as a punishment for crime.” So-called “Indian Wars” force remaining sovereign nations onto reservations. L.A. : Is the only region west of Texas to side with the Confederacy. Gains reputation as nation’s most violent city with one murder per day by 1870. The homicide rate between 1847 and 1870 averaged 158 per 100,000, which was 10 to 20 times the annual murder rates for New York City during the same period. If we had the same homicide rate today, we’d have 600,000 murders a year. French send troops to protect their citizens. By 1871, half of businesses are gambling halls, saloons or houses of prostitution, most with political or law enforcement ownership or involvement. Corruption is the norm in L.A.’s police force until the Parker administration of the 1960s. The Marshall’s Office is funded by enslavement of indigenous population. L.A.’s first jail is established (chain and a log.)
    • 5. L.A.’S WAR ON GANGS STARTS IN 1848: L.A. has the highest lynching rate of any region in the country. the victims are largely Californios - now seen since the war as Mexicans struggling to reclaim land and livestock taken through the war. First use of gang profiling – “bandido/bandit” – to criminalize groups. Los Angeles had several active Vigilance Committees during that era. Between 1850 and 1870, mobs carried out approximately 35 lynchings of Mexicans—more than four times the number that occurred in San Francisco. Los Angeles was described as "undoubtedly the toughest town of the entire nation. 1871 – Chinese Massacre is L.A.’s first of many “riots,” all of which are led by law enforcement or happen in response to police brutality. A shootout between Tong factions leads to the death of a popular white chicken rancher. A mob of 200-500 Whites and Latinos led by local government and law enforcement leads to the lynching of 19 Chinese men and the burning down of Chinatown. Vigilante mobs and state sanctioned murder typifies L.A.’s “justice” system throughout 1800s and early 1900s. 1881 - The L.A. Times is founded by Otis Harrison, and both he and the paper are a leading voice in L.A..’s power structure which establishes L.A. as nearly all-white and union free by 1900.
    • 6. YOUTH SEEN AS SUPER PREDATORS1980s - 1990s
    • 7. Los Angeles County built the nation’s first comprehensive gang suppression policies: [1] Gang injunctions - first in 1983, the ability to lock down a neighborhood and arrest people if they are on the street with another alleged gang member, out past a curfew, or carrying a cell phone. [2] Gang databases in 1987 - computerized lists that label people as “gang members” without their knowledge, without any chance to appeal, and without a clear way to get off. (3) The statewide STEP Act in 1988 that provided the nation’s first law targeting street gangs, first gang definition, first language referring to gang members as “terrorists,” first gang enhancements in court, and took database statewide [Cal Gangs Database]. [4] In 1985, L.A. established CLEAR I[Community Law Enforcement and Recovery].
    • 8. 3. CONSTRUCTION OF THE SCHOOL-TO-JAIL TRACK
    • 9. PRESIDENT REAGAN APPOINTS WILLIAM BENNET AS U.S. SECRETARY OF EDUCATION. Zero Tolerance policies include requirements for suspension, expulsion and arrests; the takeover of school discipline by police departments; and relationships in schools replaced by metal detectors, locker searches, drug-sniffing dogs, and security gates.
    • 10. 1. Police Departments take over school security 2. More Probation Officers than Counselors 3. Schools look and run like prisons; some have the same architects 4. Searches, metal detectors, gang profiling 5. Leads to massive push- out and arrest
    • 11. The largest numbers of youth contacts with the police and Probation are for: (1) Tickets that can turn into arrest warrants or holds on Drivers’ licenses when families can’t afford to pay them. The #1 “crime” fare evasion - riding train or bus without paying. (2) Curfew Violations (3) Routine stop and frisks, gang database adds on the street. (4) Graffiti related tickets and arrests including minor acts such as posting slap tags, tiny throw ups, carrying a marker, or having a graffiti-covered back pack, (5) Small possession of weed or alcohol for individual use. (6) Minor Probation violations - such as missing school or arguing with family - can get youth lock- down placement or camp time.
    • 12. 4. L.A. FED CALIFORNIA’S AND THE NATION’S ADDICTION TO INCARCERATION
    • 13. IN THE EARLY 80s, CALIFORNIA STARTS TO RAPIDLY EXPAND THE BUILDING OF PRISONS AND CUT THE BUDGET TO EVERYTHING ELSE. AT THE TIME, WE ALREADY HAD 12 PRISONS.
    • 14. DURING THE SAME TIME, CALIFORNIA BUILDS ONE UC AND TWO CAL STATE UNIVERSITIES.
    • 15. Intervention Savings: Each Murder Costs $1 Million to Investigate and 17 Million More in Jail, Court and Incarceration costs. With drastic decreases in homicide, shouldn’t the saved money be reinvestment in our schools and communities?
    • 16. Just 1%of L.A.’s Courts, Police, Sheriffs’ District Attorney’s, Probation’s and City Attorney’s Budgets would pay for: 500 full- time gang intervention workers; 50 youth centers open from 3pm - midnight, 365 days a year; and 25,000 youth jobs!
