FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY a non-fiction film commemorating Martin Luther King, Jr.‘s famous “Letter from Birmingham Jail.” No longer will the Letter from Birmingham Jail be in the SHADOW of the “I Have a Dream” speech.
The film stars community leaders of Columbus, Ohio and educators and leaders of The Ohio State University. The Letter from Birmingham Jail is an open letter written on April 16, 1963, by Martin Luther King, Jr. The letter defends the strategy of nonviolent resistance to racial discrimination, arguing that people have a moral responsibility to break unjust laws. After an early setback, it enjoyed widespread publication and became a key text for the American civil rights movement of the early 1960s.

Ronald Noble, former head of INTERPOL (2000-2014) and founder of RKN Global DWC-LLC, asks the Dallas Police Department to clear the name of Mark Hughes – an innocent man who was wrongly, and very publicly, named a suspect in the killing of five police officers in Dallas on 7 July 2016. With this video, Noble further asks that the Dallas PD begin to undo the harm caused to Mark Hughes and his family by employing the same social media to clear his name that it used to wrongly accuse him of being a cop killer in the first place.
Using social media to seek the public’s help to identify a person of interest or suspect believed to be linked to the cold-blooded murder of police officers is understandable and can even be considered good police work. This is especially true during a crisis when both the police and public are in danger.
This video shows that Mark Hughes actually helped the police by turning over his unloaded rifle on his own as soon the shooting began, well before the Dallas Police Department wrongly accused him of being a suspect through its Tweet which was circulated worldwide. Mark was in lawful possession of his rifle under Texas law and the 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution. Mark Hughes’ turning over his rifle may very well have saved his life and kept the police from killing an innocent man.
In police crises, errors are not uncommon. Following the shooting at and killing of his police officers, Dallas Police Chief David Brown made a number of errors. He said that there was more than one shooter, when in fact there was only one. He displayed a photo of Mark Hughes showing him armed with his rifle and asking for the public’s help in identifying him AFTER Mark Hughes had already turned over his gun to a Dallas police officer, identifying himself and getting a receipt from the officer.
While the Dallas Police Chief was branding Mark Hughes as a cold-blooded cop-killer, Hughes and his brother Cory were acting to lawfully protect him from retribution. Cory Hughes went on live television to say that the person whose photo had been portrayed around the world as a suspected cop killer was his brother, who was at the protest exercising his US Constitutional right to bear arms, that he was innocent, and that after the shooting broke out, Cory had advised Mark to turn over his rifle to police so he wouldn’t get mistaken for the real shooter and get shot.
Now, two months since the crisis ended and the Dallas Police Department determined that Mark Hughes had absolutely nothing to do with the sniper attack, the errors made by police on the 7th and 8th of July still have not been corrected. The video of Dallas Police Chief David Brown wrongly labelling Mark Hughes as a suspect in the killings is still publicly available. The police have yet to admit publicly that they made a mistake. Instead, the Dallas Police Department continues to place Mark Hughes, Cory Hughes and their families in danger by keeping the uncorrected and false video broadcast available to the public on its Twitter feed. The video has been viewed more than 309,000 times.
While serving as Secretary General of INTERPOL and Head of several US law enforcement agencies, Mr. Noble led brave and dedicated law enforcement officers in the U.S. and around the world. In his official capacity, he has mourned the loss of law enforcement officers under his command as a result of murders and a terrorist attack. He believes in the U.S. Constitution and its Second Amendment right to bear arms, which Mark Hughes exercised lawfully on July 7th. Mr. Noble is a proud defender of police and (the rule of law) and strongly believes that a healthy, fair and just police department should never allow false accusations made by it against an innocent person to remain uncorrected and visible on its media channels as is happening in the case of Mark Hughes. It should do the right thing and #JustClearHisName.
Please comment and share this video, and be sure to include the hashtag #JustClearHisName.
Ronald Noble is the founder and 100% shareholder of RKN Global.
Between 2000-2014, Mr. Noble was elected three times to serve as INTERPOL Secretary General, and became the first official to visit all of its 190 member countries. He transformed INTERPOL into a global, 24/7 enterprise–regularly deploying Incident Response Teams (IRTs) worldwide to confront serious crimes, terrorist attacks, and natural disasters.

Joseph Ponte to lead the Department of Correction, Ana Bermúdez to lead the Department of Probation, Elizabeth Glazer to head the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice, Vincent Schiraldi to serve as Senior Advisor to the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice
Mayor Bill de Blasio today announced four key criminal justice appointments to his administration, continuing to build on his promise to assemble a progressive, effective and diverse government that serves every New Yorker. The Mayor named Joseph Ponte as Commissioner of the Department of Correction, Ana Bermúdez as Commissioner of the Department of Probation, Elizabeth Glazer as Director of the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice, and Vincent Schiraldi as Senior Advisor to the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice.
In his forty-year corrections career, Joseph Ponte has earned a national reputation as a successful reformer. Currently the Commissioner of the Maine Department of Corrections, Ponte has a broad range of experience that offers a unique perspective and deep understanding of corrections system management. Ponte has served as a correctional officer, a warden, and as director and commissioner of numerous corrections systems around the country, and understands the challenges each member of the corrections community faces. As Commissioner of the Maine DOC, Ponte instituted reforms that reduced the use of solitary confinement by two-thirds, and completely eliminated the use of disciplinary segregation for people identified as mentally ill. He will be charged with overhauling the city’s corrections system: ending the overuse of solitary confinement, curtailing officers’ use of excessive force, and improving resources to handle the mentally ill.
An accomplished public servant and advocate, Ana Bermúdez brings more than 20 years of experience within the criminal justice system to the Department of Probation. From her early days as a Staff Attorney at the Legal Aid Society to her most recent role as Deputy Commissioner for Juvenile Operations of the New York City Department of Probation, Bermúdez has devoted her entire career to preventing recidivism, facilitating re-entry, and designing and implementing restorative justice programs for New York City’s youth. As Commissioner of the Department of Probation, Bermúdez will continue to implement forward-thinking policies that make the community safer by helping individuals turn their lives around.
Elizabeth Glazer brings decades of experience in the justice system to the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice. From her work as chief advisor to Governor Cuomo on criminal justice, to her role as Special Counsel to the New York State Attorney General, Glazer’s progressive approach has led to lasting reform across the city and state. As Director, Glazer will serve as the senior criminal justice policy advisor to the Mayor and First Deputy Mayor, overseeing citywide criminal justice policy and developing and implementing strategies across city agencies and partners to enhance public safety, reduce unnecessary incarceration, and increase fairness. Glazer will also be charged with serving as the Mayor’s representative to the courts, district attorneys, and state criminal justice agencies, among others. The Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice will design and deploy strategies with all partners who influence and are touched by crime, including government agencies, non-profits, private and philanthropic organizations and neighborhoods. This affirmative and comprehensive approach will promote the well-being of individuals, families and communities.
Vincent Schiraldi has led the New York City Department of Probation for the past four years, overseeing significant programmatic innovation and reforms in the agency. From organizing community resource fairs for probation clients to founding the Center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice, Schiraldi has consistently used innovative solutions throughout his career to tackle the unique challenges facing young adults in the criminal justice system. As Senior Advisor to the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice, Schiraldi will build upon his extensive track record to continue supporting young adults. Working with key city agencies and outside partners, he will focus on the unique challenges posed by young adults in the criminal justice system. In addition, he will work with the city Department of Education, the NYPD and other entities to improve school safety and reduce the number of students who get suspended and arrested.
