7:15 pm
twenty years in prison in the united states for a crime he never committed on the american soil now it has gone from bad to worse for russian violent constantini russian. he called me in the morning and told me he felt very sick and that he'd be lucky to survive until monday he seems to be having a heart attack because he told me he was suffocating experienced heart pain and was almost unable to walk he was beaten severely when he was arrested and has not they are still unwell for a long time but his pleas for medical help have been ignored and he felt sick they put him in lock up and left him on the cold floor he tried to get to the doctor but all he was offered was flu medication and some antibiotics sometimes they don't even let me send him letters and they have refused to let any russian officials meet with the prison chief over the head doctor you know showing his lawyer told r.t. that the head doctor at the new jersey prison where he's being held will not expedite
7:16 pm
his treatment which could have the worst possible consequences monday was also a federal holiday in the united states so my supposition would be that any kind of medical treatment to a constant junior i shan't go could be provided only. on tuesday the eighteenth of february constantine your i shan't go sad that he might not live through that we can kiss condition requires immediate medical attention you know santa was arrested in twenty town in liberia on suspicion of drug smuggling he was reportedly severely beaten before being transported to the u.s. where he received a twenty year prison sentence this is not new this is something we've seen repeated over and over again the kind of arrogant attitude that washington has toward other countries and particularly to other countries for a nap. doing white washington wants to dictate to them to do prisons
7:17 pm
system in the united states the largest prison system on the planet highest rate of prisoners of any country largest number in both absolute terms in relative terms has no terror are notoriously. disregarding of the rights of prisoners even the most fundamental rights including the red pill to live. moscow has been insisting all along that the way your case has been handled regardless of whether he committed the crime or not is a gross violation of human rights probably very beginning. so if you are. speaking mr abbas has been absolutely. we have expressed very serious concern we have with the u.s. government that. they are under international obligations to take care of. the health of our citizens having failed to get through to washington via
7:18 pm
official channels the russian foreign ministry resorted to social media and posted a plea for help on its facebook page ever since you know it was delivered to the u.s. russian officials have been denied access with the situation now taking a dramatic turn russian foreign ministry officials are once again demanding to be allowed to see him along with their own doctors that is of course if you know shanker himself lives to receive that help. r.t. the u.s. penitentiary system is taking the lives not only of those who received a death sentence but others as well let's take a look at the numbers according to the u.s. department of justice more than forty five thousand people died in custody custody in the space of a decade some did not even make it to their trial now the editor of prison legal news alex friedman told r.t. that keeping inmates alive isn't always a priority in american jails. prisoners might have very serious medical conditions
7:19 pm
and sometimes be very near death and they're told to sign up on a sick call or that they'll refer them to the nurse the next week or there might not be a doctor at the prison that weekend so they have to wait until the next week to see medical staff. go received a twenty year sentence he did not receive a death sentence but unless he receives adequate medical care he and other prisoners with serious medical conditions can die while in custody mr you're a shame go was basically kidnapped and you know when he was taken into custody overseas by u.s. officials. the united states really does not have a lot of respect for the rule of international law when it conflicts with what they want to do now israel's borders with its arab neighbors are some of the most heavily fortified on earth but within israeli society itself there's no shortage of tension between jews and muslims arabs make up a fifth of the country's population but as policy reports they're not always
7:20 pm
treated equally under the law. morny they treat us like israeli citizens only when they want to convict us other than that we're arabs to them and that's the pure racism and ethnic policy of this country that before even six other arabs were found guilty of attempted to murder in a ton santa and his radio jewish terrorist who took aim at them. it's a conviction that is hard to comprehend very hard the innocent and victim is even put on trial let alone convicted of a on a ship it was here back in august two thousand and five that saga and israeli soldier who deserted the army used his military issued rifle to fire at arab passengers on a bus he killed four and wounded seventeen before being attacked by the crowd they grabbed him while he was being handcuffed by police he never made it off the bus arrived those who were sentenced for his death i think there's more to it then
7:21 pm
north. israelis use acts of power to educate us so that if such attacks happen again no one will dare to do anything i compared unstudied similar cases to this one in court where i was from israel committed acts against jews and they were killed by james for taking the law into their hands the jews were never convicted and no charges were brought against them it's clear there is a double standard in the justice courts a case in point. and he's ready jew who shot and killed an arab terrorist after he murdered his shiva students while they were studying in jerusalem in two thousand and eight and shot him with two bullets in the head he spent in iraq and he was teetering and then the guy with the m. sixteen who was hiding behind a side door finished the deal we kept shooting at him until we emptied our magazines and that was that. this is they didn't even open an investigation file against that doing the police didn't even ask him didn't even check of the air was dead or not the scales of justice amin to balance in this scale. for we seem
7:22 pm
to feel killing a jewish terrorist in this scale doing praised for killing an arab terrorist do they even know. israeli know and it's son adoption late feels if anything they took two boys out of speech uniting the jews she feels to me and so for me and his code accused should have received harsher sentences and so i would say it's a disgrace people who kill someone was hands are tied in the back. who is not a threat anymore is not a political trial it's a pure america the conviction sends a message that the arab community that they are blood is cheap and they can spare our lives and so the verdicts out is there a double standard at play in israel which is what the courts are meant to determine in the first place point to see how our team telling. the truth seems not to be out

7:25 pm
a vegetable it's the type of things that people need to have in their diets but that some in germany just can't afford. the effort you mention so many people try and deal with their poverty but one point they realise they just can't take it anymore and they come to us it's a difficult step but it becomes the only solution and. one woman who gave me the maid who didn't want to be identified told me how grateful she is for the help the food bank provides. i have everything here eggs even fish bread the little things make a big difference the money i get from the state goes to keep the power it's nice to have one hundred fifty two months i'm very happy to have this because of this i can buy clothes and live. some of those receiving handouts accuse germany's politicians of caring more for wider europe than the german people event demanded up to the part of europe that we held. why don't you help us we have hungry kids but the
