The California government and a nonprofit will pay a Shasta County atheist nearly $2 million for violating his civil rights when he was sent back to prison for taking issue with a religious drug-treatment program while on parole.
Barry Hazle Jr. and his attorney, John G. Heller, announced the settlement this morning at a press conference in San Francisco.
Hazle was imprisoned for just over 100 days after taking issue with the drug-treatment program that centered on submitting one’s fate to a “higher power.” Heller said the program also included prayer and references to God.
But when Hazle asked for another treatment program, he was told Westcare’s 12-step program was the only one available.
Probation officials eventually sent him back to prison at California Rehabilitation Center in Norco, where he had already spent a year on drug possession charges that were overturned by an appeals court, according to court documents. Their decision was based on Hazle allegedly being “disruptive, though in a congenial way, to the staff as well as other students…sort of passive-aggressive,” and needing further treatment, according to court documents.
So his conviction was overturned, basically declaring him innocent, but they sent him back because he didn’t go “Yes Sir!” loudly enough on every thing they said to him?
You raise a village do they call you Ackmed the village destroyer?
You start a caliphate in Iraq do they call you Ackmed the nation builder?
You lead many men to victory in the Syrian battles do they call you Ackmed the great?
Well, that’s if you believe this headline.
