What happens when a college psych study goes shockingly wrong? In this tense, psychological thriller based on the notorious true story, Billy Crudup stars as Stanford University professor Dr. Philip Zimbardo, who, in 1971, cast 24 student volunteers as prisoners and guards in a simulated jail to examine the source of abusive behavior in the prison system. The results astonished the world, as participants went from middle-class undergrads to drunk-with-power sadists and submissive victims in just a few days. Winner of two awards at the Sundance Film Festival, including Best Screenplay, and created with the close participation of Dr. Zimbardo himself, 'The Stanford Prison Experiment' is a chilling, edge-of-your-seat thriller about the dark side of power and the effects of imprisonment. Featuring an extraordinary cast of rising young actors, including Ezra Miller, Olivia Thirlby, Tye Sheridan, Keir Gilchrist, Michael Angarano, and Thomas Mann.

Teen Describes ‘Living Hell’ With Couple Now Serving 20 Years In Prison

After police hauled away Jeff and Sandra Weller from their upscale suburban home in Washington where they lived with their six kids, what was discovered behind closed doors was nothing short of a living nightmare. Some of the kids, including Sandra Weller’s adopted twins, were brutally beaten with a piece of lumber that was referred to as “the board,” the refrigerator was locked to restrict their food, cameras monitored their every move, and they were locked in their rooms with no electricity, according to court documents. The couple was found guilty in 2013 and each of them is serving a 20-year prison sentence.

Now 18 years old, Ian, who is Jeff Weller’s biological son, speaks out for the first time and describes what he endured in the video above.

Why do Ian’s mom and stepdad say Child Protective Services failed to protect these kids after numerous calls to them? And how will the victims move forward?

Infographic: How To Reform The Nation’s Prison System

With pressing issues such as overcrowding, overuse of solitary confinement, and the long-term incarceration of nonviolent offenders, many critics of the nation’s prison system are calling for sweeping reforms. Here are some of the proposals to improve the prison system:

  • Create thousands of productive jobs for inmates constructing more prisons
  • Use solitary confinement only in cases of severe guard anger
  • Slightly shorter prison sentences for those who were wrongfully convicted
  • Take preventative measures by working with kids to convince them not to grow up in areas with disproportionately high incarceration levels
  • Some more dogs to read to or train or whatever
  • Ease the emotional strain caused by inmates’ separation from their families by imprisoning their loved ones with them
  • Increase length of a life sentence to 150 years to really deter potential criminals
  • Avoid whole prison reform headache by solving nation’s education, mental health, drug problems instead

CeCe McDonald Reflects On Life And Activism Since Her Release From Prison

 

This is the first feature in a series that aims to elevate some of the transgender and gender-nonconforming individuals who have played a significant role in the ongoing fight for trans and queer liberation.

In a time when conversations surrounding transgender identity are taking shape at a continually increasing rate in mainstream culture, the images and stories of trans people being broadcast to the public oftentimes don’t reflect the nuances of the vast spectrum of trans experiences. In an effort to challenge and combat this, HuffPost Gay Voices is bringing together significant and historic trans and gender non-conforming figures to share their stories and discuss the ongoing struggle to achieve liberation for all marginalized people.

CeCe McDonald is a name that continually resonates in the hearts and minds of the queer community, and CeCe herself is an individual whose name holds an immense amount weight in conversations surrounding the incarceration of trans women of color and the prison industrial complex. 

McDonald was sentenced in May 2012 to spend 41 months in a men’s prison facility, despite identifying as female, for the death of Dean Schmitz in June 2011. McDonald was walking past a local bar on the night of Schmitz’s death when she became the recipient of racist, transphobic and violent language that evolved into an altercation with Schmitz and other bar patrons. After the group hurled a glass at McDonald’s face, she attempted to defended herself with a pair of scissors, resulting in Schmitz’s death.

Amidst large-scale outcry and support from the queer community, she was released in January 2014 after serving 19 months of her sentence. She now opens up to The Huffington Post about her life since leaving prison, her thoughts about Caitlyn Jenner and her growth as both an activist and a trans woman of color.

 The Huffington Post: How has your life changed both as an activist and as a black trans woman in America since your release from prison?

CeCe McDonald: Well, as an activist I have come to know a lot of people who are just as motivated and inspired to do activist work, especially around liberation for black trans women. But I’ve also come to a point where I have been calling out people on their falsehood and saying that they’re about that life when they’re really not. I’ve been really diligent about making sure people are adamant about the work that they do and who they do it for. And to not co-opt movements – you know, using certain movements for their own personal agenda or gain. 

But as an activist I have grown a lot. I have come to know and understand and learn about different cultures – to respect them. As a black person I do sometimes find myself in my own bigotry, so I’m just learning to decolonize my mind around a lot of shit that I’ve been taught for so long. It’s a process and luckily I have a very supportive, loving community and colleagues that work with me, help me with certain things and let me know. They motivate me more in the work that I do. As an activist I feel like we tend to box ourselves and fight for things that affect us directly, and with intersections of oppression I have learned that I’m connected to every fucked up thing that happens in the world regardless of if I want to see it that way or not.

Right now I’m really focused on the Black Trans Lives Matter movement here in Minneapolis with other trans, queer and gender-nonconforming people of color on doing some more physical action work and just bringing a different forefront to Minnesota in general. 

The Huffington Post: Caitlyn Jenner has completely changed the landscape when it comes to the way mainstream cultures conceptualizes transgender identity. Do you think there are productive things that could come from her form of visibility or do you think that she’s merely another conservative Republican trying to co-opt a movement for her own use?

I feel like me and Caitlyn Jenner only have one thing in common and that is being trans. I’m a black trans woman, she’s a white trans woman. She comes from a background of class and privilege, I don’t. She has money, I don’t.

I feel like society’s idea of “what trans women are” have loosely been based on Caitlyn Jenner coming out, so we fail to realize that this is a person that is definitely a conservative Republican and goes against all the things that we’re fighting for on a daily basis… conservative Republican politics are against women, are against trans women, are against the LGBTQIA community, are against impoverished communities. She seems to have this idea that if “they” can do it, we all can do it — and that’s just not the rhetoric that I feel our community needs to be internalizing. It’s actually laced with so much misogyny and transmisogyny anti-woman politics flowing around. We have trans women who don’t have the ability to transition the way that they want to because of funds and accessibility, having to deal with dysphoria on a day to day basis, and then we have this one trans woman in the media who somehow garnered more attention than Laverne Cox or Janet Mock or Carmen Carrera or any trans woman of color .

I feel like me and Caitlyn Jenner only have one thing in common — and that is being trans.

I’m not saying that she turned trans [to get attention] or anything like that but she’s definitely using our movement to push her own agenda and that’s very frustrating. Just take a look at the trans women and trans women of color who are working so hard to beat these stigmas, stereotypes and ideologies — so all I can say is I support her as a trans woman but that’s as far as it goes.

The Huffington Post: Let’s talk a bit about issues like prison reform and the incarceration of trans women. How do we get people in America to care about these issues and actually seem them as worthy of their time and resources to invest in them?

That’s a good question. We are given this false idea that prisons are safe or prisons protect you or prisons reform the people within them — we have come to see that’s not the case. People come out of prison sometimes worse than when they went in. Prisons not only affect the inmates but they affect the people that work there. We see that prisons take up resources, they take up space and we need to get people to understand that as long as people are using prisons for their own agendas and fear mongering tactics and having people believe that prisons are safe, then that’s what we’re doing to believe. But we need to decolonize our minds around prisons and what prison reform is. We don’t need any more prisons — we need those funds and resources that are put into prisons to be put into our communities, like our schools, our hospitals, our mental health facilities, fair housing and housing programs, employment agencies, places that will actually help people not turn to certain things that will tend to criminalize them and either have them incarcerated or dead. 

We are given this false idea that prisons are safe or prisons protect you or prisons reform the people within them, we have come to see that’s not the case. People come out of prison sometimes worse than when they went in.

The Huffington Post: What’s the best way for people that don’t identify as trans or gender-nonconforming to be allies to trans people, and black trans women specifically, and all of the issues that you’ve been talking about?

That’s an extensive list [laughs]. I feel like one of the ways that people can advocate for trans women in an everyday way is calling out bigotry, sexism, misogny, transmisogny, transphobia and homophobia when you see it… You have to think about how much of yourself that you’re putting out there in relation to you being an advocate for a trans woman. And that goes further than saying “I’m an advocate for a trans person,” you actually have to put in some work. Call out bullshit when it needs to be called out and call it in when it needs to be called in… Also, just supporting trans women on a day to day basis, whether supporting funding for them or helping them register for school or letting trans women know that you are there for them. You know, being an advocate for trans women isn’t just speaking up for trans women, it’s actively being there for trans women. Be able to share your space, do not co-copt our movements or our lives, don’t just tokenize us, don’t use our stories and our images for your own agenda or your own gain and make sure that if you are requesting something from a trans woman that you can pay her. People don’t understand that transitioning, especially medically, is really hard and a lot of trans women don’t have the funds or the resources to do those things. Just think about how we are uplifting and supporting and appreciating trans women – not just tolerating us but actually appreciating us and our stories and our struggles and our transcestors struggles.

What do you want your legacy to be?

I just want people to know that I strive so hard to be an outstanding advocate, not just for my own personal movements but for movements across the globe. I just want people to know that regardless of how I comes across, it’s about me calling things out when they need to be called out and I don’t have an issue with that. I’m tired of feeling like I, or any trans woman of color, feel like they have to walk around on eggshells or be coy and pretend that everything is ok when that’s not the case. And that’s the legacy that I want people to know – that I fought tooth and nail for trans women. That I fought so hard for trans liberation and the liberation of people of color and the ending of conservative politics so that we can try to live and be liberated like we really want to.

Somebody said to me last night that “the work isn’t done until it’s done.” A lot of people just gave up after gay marriage and so many things that they fought for that trans women were a part of, and once they had their victory trans women didn’t seem to matter anymore. And so I’m just saying that I’m not going to continue to support movements that are not supporting trans women because people are, again, co-opting our movement, tokenizing our movements, fantasizing and glamorizing our movements, white-washing our movements, gay-washing our movements and we, as trans women and trans women of color, need to take back out legacies. We need to take back our right to be who we are and not have people taking away our struggles and our transcestors struggles. My legacy is all of our legacies. And it started with Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera and Miss Major and the Stonewall Riots and the cafeteria riots, and those movements gave me the ability to even have this interview right now. Trans people have existed for centuries and we thrive and we will never be extinct. And as long as the human race exists there will always be trans people, there will always be queer people, there will always be gender-nonconforming people and we’re not going anywhere. I want that reality to live on through the lives of generations that come after us. We have to keep fighting — because the work isn’t done until it’s done.

“Free CeCe,” a documentary about the life and incarceration of CeCe McDonald co-produced by Laverne Cox, is currently in post-production and slated for an expected release date of April 2016. Head here for more info or to make a donation.

Chelsea Manning Loses Prison Privileges For 21 Days Over Expired Toothpaste

Chelsea Manning was barred from using the prison gym, library or outdoor areas for three weeks after she was found guilty Tuesday of violating prison rules, including possessing toothpaste with an expired date. 

Manning, a former Army intelligence analyst serving 35 years in a military prison at Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas, for providing secret documents to WikiLeaks, was convicted of four infractions during a disciplinary hearing, her lawyer, ACLU attorney Chase Strangio, confirmed to The Huffington Post.

Manning was found guilty of “medicine misuse” for possessing an expired tube of toothpaste, and “prohibited property” for having the Vanity Fair issue with Caitlyn Jenner on the cover, in addition to other reading material. She faced possible solitary confinement for the infractions, but was ultimately stripped of recreational privileges for 21 days.

Manning tweeted about the charges Tuesday:

“The fact that Chelsea had to face today’s four-hour Disciplinary Board without counsel and will now be punished for daring to share her voice sets a concerning precedent for the remaining decades of her incarceration,” Strangio said in an emailed statement. “No one should have to face the lingering threat of solitary confinement for reading and writing about the conditions we encounter in the world. Chelsea’s voice is critical to our public discourse about government accountability and trans Justice and we can only preserve it if we stay vigilant in our advocacy on her behalf.” 

Earlier Tuesday, Manning’s supporters delivered a petition to Army officials in Washington, urging the military to drop the charges and “stop harassing” Manning. The petition, launched last week, garnered more than 100,000 signatures.

“Chelsea Manning is a hero and the whole world is watching the U.S. government’s deplorable treatment of whistleblowers, transgender people, and prison inmates in general,” Evan Greer of Fight for the Future said in a statement prior to Tuesday’s hearing.

An Army spokesperson didn’t immediately return The Huffington Post’s request for comment.

Dark Knight Shooter James Holmes Sentenced To Life In Prison

There was never any doubt in the minds of jurors that James Holmes was guilty as accused. The madman who killed twelve people and injured 70 others during the July 20, 2012 premiere of The Dark Knight Rises, attempted to plead insanity for his gun crazy actions but was still held accountable for first-degree murder on July 17 of this year.

Faces Of Death: The Mugs Behind Some Of America’s Deadliest Shootings [Photos]

After nearly a month-long of deliberation, the verdict has come down and unlike Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokar Tsarnaev, the jury has decided to spare Holmes his life and sentence him to life in prison.

Reports the Associated Press:

It took jurors only about 12 hours of deliberations to decide the first part — they rejected his insanity defense and found him guilty of 165 felony counts.

The defense then conceded his guilt, but insisted during the sentencing phase that his crimes were caused by the psychotic breakdown of a mentally ill young man, reducing his moral culpability and making a life sentence appropriate.

The jury’s final decision came after days of tearful testimony from relatives of the slain.

The case could have ended the same way more than two years ago, when Holmes offered to plead guilty if he could avoid the death penalty. Prosecutors rejected the offer. But the victims and the public might not have ever learned in detail what was behind the shootings had the plea deal been accepted.

The trial — featuring a journal where Holmes had secretly described his murderous plans — provided a rare look inside the mind of a mass shooter. Most are killed by police, kill themselves or plead guilty. By pleading insanity, he dropped his privacy rights and agreed to be examined by court-ordered psychiatrists. Holmes told one that he had been secretly obsessed with thoughts of killing since he was 10.

His parents testified that he seemed a normal, affectionate child who withdrew socially in adolescence and became fascinated with science but did not seem abnormal. Holmes studied neuroscience hoping to understand what was happening to his mind. But it was when he moved from San Diego to Colorado to attend graduate school that his meltdown accelerated.

Let’s just hope they make it hell on earth for him and he lives until he’s 89-years-old.

Disgraced NBA Ref Tim Donaghy Joined White Skinhead Gang In Prison For Protection

Former NBA referee Tim Donaghy reportedly continued his poor decision-making ways during his prison term which ended in 2009. In a recent interview with Pat Jordan for New York Magazine, the 48-year-old habitual cheater admitted to joining a white power gang for protection from his fellow inmates.

Why did he need protection you may ask? He dropped a dime on a few guys who were gambling. Oh-the-motherf*cking irony.

Donaghy didn’t much like prison. “Too many criminals,” he says. Men who had killed informants, meth dealers, wives. He called his mother: “Mom! Oh my God! I don’t belong here! I could get killed.” But that didn’t stop him from ratting out his fellow inmates for gambling. Then he joined a white-power gang to avoid retribution (he didn’t want to get the tattoo and says they let him shave his head instead).

When he was paroled in 2009, he returned to Sarasota and slept on a sofa in his friend’s office. His daughters were humiliated and his ex-wife hated him, he says, so, in despair, he visited his parents’ home on the Jersey Shore. He sat with his father in an office decorated with memorabilia from his father’s NCAA refereeing career. Donaghy noticed “a sizable void on the wall” that had once been filled by a framed newspaper photograph of Donaghy and his father as two famously respected referees. When I ask Donaghy if he’s reconciled with his father, he says, yes, they’re close again. “Did your father put back up that framed newspaper photo of you two as refs?” I ask. “No,” he says.

We are driving around Sarasota, in a middle-class neighborhood of concrete-block homes with scruffy grass yards. Donaghy’s a landlord here and points out homes he owns while he talks.

He says his first job out of prison was as “a counselor at a gambling-treatment center, but the guy never paid me.” He had other offers, from gamblers, Vegas, bookies, to be an NBA handicapper, but his probation officer forbade him to take any job related to gambling until his parole was up. “I was on ice,” Donaghy says, before his book, Personal Foul, came out. But the book didn’t make any money, according to his publisher, Shawna Vercher. Donaghy was certain she “was trying to steal my money.” Vercher claimed she sent all of Donaghy’s royalties to the U.S. Attorney’s office as restitution for his crimes.

Silk Road Founder Sentenced To Life In Prison

If you were aware of the black market website, Silk Road, during its heyday at the top of the decade, then you were already one step closer to committing a felony. The online marketplace for heavy drugs such as heroin, cocaine and ecstasy amassed millions in revenue before being shut down in the November 2014.

Now, Silk Road founder Ross Ulbricht has to answer for the multiple crimes, including at least one victim overdosing from the drugs being purchased, with a life sentence in prison.

Reports the New York Times:

Mr. Ulbricht, 31, was sentenced by the judge, Katherine B. Forrest, for his role as what prosecutors described as “the kingpin of a worldwide digital drug-trafficking enterprise.”

Mr. Ulbricht’s novel high-tech drug bazaar operated in a hidden part of the Internet sometimes known as the dark web, which allowed deals to be made anonymously and out of the reach of law enforcement. In Silk Road’s nearly three years of operation, over 1.5 million transactions were carried out involving several thousand seller accounts and more than 100,000 buyer accounts, the authorities have said.

Judge Forrest echoed that message. “What you did was unprecedented,” she told Mr. Ulbricht, “and in breaking that ground as the first person,” he had to pay the consequences. Anyone who might consider doing something similar, the judge added, needed to understand clearly “and without equivocation that if you break the law this way, there will be very serious consequences.”

Mr. Ulbricht was convicted in February on charges that included engaging in a continuing criminal enterprise and distributing narcotics on the Internet, each of which carried potential life terms. The government had also alleged that he had solicited the murders of people he saw as threats to his operation, and that at least six deaths were attributable to drugs bought on the site.

At the hearing, the mother of one such victim and the father of another each delivered emotional statements to the judge. The father, identified as Richard, whose 25-year-old son had died after using heroin that prosecutors said was purchased on Silk Road, accused Mr. Ulbricht of being driven by greed in making drugs easily available to vulnerable people.

“I strongly believe that my son would be here today if Ross Ulbricht had not created Silk Road,” he said, adding, “All Ross Ulbricht cared about was his growing pile of bitcoins.”

A tearful Ulbricht expressed remorse for his actions at his sentencing but you know they say hindsight is always 20/20.

Savagery: Cop Shooter Smiles At Judge After Being Sentenced To 110 Years In Prison

On Easter Sunday 2012, Nakwon Foxworth found himself in the center of a hostage situation where he eventually fired–and wounded–four police officers in Brooklyn.

Following his guilty verdict, a judge rejected all his self-defense arguments and sentenced him to a mind-blowing 110 years in prison, to which Foxworth met the revelation with a cheesy grin.

Reports NYDailyNews:

“I’ll be back,” Nakwon Foxworth said in Brooklyn Supreme Court after apologizing to members of his own family “for my absence” since he was arrested in April 2012 — but never uttering a word of condolence to the Emergency Service Unit cops he shot.

Foxworth, 36, was convicted at trial last month by a jury that did not buy his self-defense argument that he opened fire on cops in the Sheepshead Bay apartment where he was barricaded only after, he claimed, they shot at him first.

The incident happened April 8, 2012 — on Easter Sunday — after Foxworth began arguing with moving men over items blocking the building hallway. Foxworth, who had an arsenal in the apartment, briefly held his pregnant girlfriend and infant son while hostage negotiators tried to defuse the situation.

But the key piece of evidence, Assistant District Attorney Kenneth Taub pointed out, were text messages Foxworth sent during the standoff indicating he had no intention of returning to prison.

It should be noted that while a jury easily convicted Foxworth of shooting the officers, the polar opposite couldn’t be accomplished for Cleveland cop Michael Brelo’s shooting, especially when his aftermath looked like this.

Man Says Baby Slipped Out of His Lap; Now He’s In Prison Convicted Of Child Abuse

Brenda says her spouse of seven years, Josh, is a loving husband and father, so devoted to being a great parent, he signed up for Daddy bootcamp before their daughter, Naomi, was born. “Family is everything to him,” Brenda says.

But Brenda and Josh say for the past year, they have been fighting to reunite their family, after they say Josh was unfairly convicted of second-degree child abuse. They say that in March 2014, Josh was burping the couple’s 11-week-old daughter, Naomi, when she fell off Josh’s lap in what he says was an accident. So how did he end up in prison?

“In these cases, unfortunately with child abuse, you’re guilty until proven innocent,” Josh tells Dr. Phil in the video above. “There were key things in this trial that the jury wasn’t allowed to see. I passed two polygraph tests.”

Dr. Phil reviews the questions Josh was asked on his polygraph tests and his answers. “The results of both tests did not indicate deception,” Dr. Phil says. “Those are not admissible in court, so those are not part of the court record, and that’s what you’re saying — they didn’t get to hear that.”

“Correct,” Josh says. “Also, we had six expert doctors who weighed in on our case, and none of them thought that this was abuse.”

“Why are you in jail?” Dr. Phil asks.

“That’s a good question,” Josh replies. “I love my daughter. She was a wanted child. We planned for her and brought her into this world, and I’ve never abused my daughter.”

This episode of Dr. Phil airs Monday. Watch more here.

Love & Hip Hop New York’s Mendeecees Harris Going To Prison, Has To Forfeit VH1 Checks

Love & Hip Hop New York’s Mendeecees Harris just got out of prison in March of 2014 but it looks like he’s going right back.

The 36-year-old pseudo reality star pleaded guilty to drug trafficking charges and he’s looking at some serious time in the bing. And all his hard-earned TV money is going to government resources.

Via D&C

Love & Hip Hop star Harris, 36, pleaded guilty to narcotics conspiracy in front of U.S. District Judge Frank Geraci Jr. It took nearly an hour for Harris to answer all of the questions related to what Geraci called “a rather complicated agreement.”

During the appearance, Harris admitted he was involved in a drug trafficking operation that between 2005 and 2012 shipped cocaine and heroin to the Rochester region.

Under an agreement with federal prosecutors, Harris also turns over money from his television show and paid appearances. He’s paid after every episode airs. That money, which the federal government will keep, has totaled more than $ 103,000, said his attorney Donald Thompson.

Harris, who is free on a $ 600,000 bail package, will face a sentence of 8 to 10 years in federal prison and/or a fine ranging from $ 15,000 to $ 5 million. He will also face four or five years of supervised release, Thompson said.

Harris’ co-defendants Ronald Walker, and Mendeecees Harris’ brother Tyrus Harris, previously pleaded guilty to their roles in the case. Walker is serving 10 years in federal prison.

Geraci agreed to allow Mendeecees Harris to remain free on bail until his sentencing, which is scheduled for Aug. 31 at 3 p.m.

Harris and his fiancée, hip-hop producer Yandy Smith, will be getting married on live television next month on Love & Hip Hop Live: The Wedding. In February, Smith gave birth to the couple’s second child.

Something tells us the show will still go on.

Fela Kuti in an Unpublished Interview Conducted After His Release From Prison

The release of Alex Gibney’s new documentary on the late Nigerian pop star Fela Kuti spurred me to sift through my own personal journalistic archives to find an audiotaped interview I conducted with Fela in 1986.

And here it is, a transcript and audio clip of my mostly unpublished interview with Fela, perhaps the first one-on-one he granted after being released from prison in ’86.

On June 17, 1986, seven weeks after his release from Nigeria’s toughest prison, Fela spoke exclusively with me. And, bravely, he remained defiant against the military regime in Nigeria that had imprisoned him.

As is the case with many interviews that I conducted as a writer for music trade weekly Cash Box, the Q&A remained unpublished (except for a few lines published in the June 21, 1986, issue of that magazine).

Kuti is probably best-known today as the inventor of Afropop, a massively influential musical form that mixed jazz, rock, funk and revolutionary politics.

Fela was also famous for having fought against oppression in Nigeria. In the early ’80s he was imprisoned by his country’s autocratic regime for three years on what appear to have been politically motivated charges.

After he was released from prison in April 1986, he visited New York City, appearing at a Manhattan press conference on June 13, 1986 (my interview was not a part of that conference) before performing for Amnesty International at Giants Stadium in New Jersey on June 15.

Here’s an edited version of the conversation I had with Fela on June 17, 1986. (And here’s a link to audio clips of my conversation with him.)

Paul Iorio: It must be a big change for you to be out of prison now.

Fela Kuti: Yeah, it’s a big change for me. It’s a good change.

Iorio: Did you write a lot of songs in prison?

Fela: No. I just kept my brain blank. I left my mind blank in prison.

Iorio: You were transferred to Kirikiri. Was that, as they say, Nigeria’s toughest prison? And was it tough on you?

Fela: [Kirikiri] is one of the toughest prisons, but it was not tough on me. I lived through it. It was tough on the body. I lived through it….

Iorio: Do you think your spirit is stronger because of this experience?

Fela: Much more stronger.

Iorio:There was a period when you were in the hospital and they transferred you over to Maiduguri prison. At that point nobody heard anything from you for about six weeks. What happened to you?

Fela: They just took me to the prison … and it was very, very uncomfortable, very far away from everybody. And visitors weren’t allowed for me for about five months.

Iorio: Were you afraid for your life?

Fela: No, no, no, I was never afraid for my life…. We just try to face the government….

Iorio: Are you still going to speak out against the Nigerian government? … You’re not going to back down?

Fela: No, I’m not going to back down. I still intend to [protest the government]. I’m not backing down….

Iorio: Would you ever consider getting involved in Nigerian politics … ?

Fela: Yes, definitely.

Iorio: You mentioned that some of the military people have your records and like your music.

Fela: Oh, yes. Everybody in Nigeria likes my records.

Iorio: Do you think Amnesty International had a lot to do with getting you out of prison?

Fela: Not much. They tried to make people aware of it. But there’s not much they could do….

Iorio: While you were in prison, what was the worst thing that happened to you?

Fela: The worst thing that happened to me [while I was in prison] was that my record was produced by somebody else, Bill Laswell. And that really fucked me up in prison.

Iorio: That was “Live in Amsterdam”?

Fela: No, no, “Army Arrangement” … destroyed me completely, fucked my mind up…. When you’re in prison, you can’t do anything about what’s happening outside.

Iorio: But at the same time, people were being carted out dead every day; there were beatings.

Fela: Oh, yes.

Iorio: But it never happened to you?

Fela: No.

Iorio: Was that because everybody knew who you were?

Fela: Yes, exactly.

Iorio: You were more than disappointed with “Army Arrangement.”

Fela: Yes, Bill Laswell’s production. I had a production [before I went] to prison. So they abandoned my production and put in a new one…. They knew that [I’d given] instructions that it not be produced by anyone. They knew how I felt about it.

[I was unable to contact Laswell for comment on this claim. Of course, Laswell is welcome to give his side of the story in the comments section here.]

Iorio: How about “Live in Amsterdam”? Do you harbor any bad feeling that EMI released that instead of releasing “Perambulator”?

Fela: EMI did so many bad things. They didn’t look out for my interest at all…. They just wanted to rush something out…. “Live in Amsterdam” wasn’t a good recording. I only [made] it happen because the system wanted it, because the company complained … and demanded a live album.

[Any executive from that era of EMI is free to rebut Fela’s statements in the comments section.]

Iorio: Is there a Fela record that you consider is your best?

Fela: No, I don’t.

Iorio: Do you think that you could live a better life as a musician if you were to leave Nigeria?

Fela: I could never leave my home…. It inspires me a lot.

As I Lay Dying’s Timothy Lambesis Sentenced To 6 Years In Prison For Murder Plot

VISTA, Calif. (AP) — The lead singer of the band As I Lay Dying has been sentenced to six years in prison for plotting to kill his wife.

U-T San Diego (http://bit.ly/1nYl59s ) reports 33-year-old Timothy Lambesis was sentenced Friday in San Diego County. He had pleaded guilty to soliciting murder. Authorities say Lambesis hired an undercover sheriff’s detective to kill Meggan Lambesis last year. The singer said she had restricted his visits with their children after a separation, and he also was angry that his wife would get a large share of his income in a divorce settlement.

His attorney said Lambesis acted out of character and the behavior was sparked by steroid use.

As I Lay Dying was formed in San Diego in 2000. The metal band was nominated for a Grammy in 2008.
