by Carol Harvey My name is Carol Harvey, Bay Area investigative reporter. I’m taking advantage of this bully pulpit on the San Francisco Bay View National Black Newspaper to reach out to lawyers and law firms on behalf of everyone who ever lived or worked on former Naval Station Treasure Island in San Francisco Bay. This is a case you’ll be glad you took because it’s a great and winning case with extremely sympathetic plaintiffs.

This is the drawing Rashid created to illustrate his 2010 story “Kill Yourself or Liberate Yourself.” by Kevin ‘Rashid’ Johnson No Virginia prison gangs before 2004 With the prevalence of youth lumpen organizations (so called street gangs) in Virginia today, it’s hard to believe that there were actually no gangs (especially no Black ones) in Virginia’s prisons prior to 2004.
