Saunders, requests a hearing toreconsider this Court’s decision to detain Ms. Davenport:1.Ms. Davenport is scheduled to come to the courthouse to be released to VOA onTuesday, May 12. Counsel has been informed by Pretrial that VOA will not ac-cept her.2.Subsequent to the initial hearing on detention counsel has spoken to her employer of 20 years who can and will provide the highest recommendation of her charac-ter.3.Counsel has obtained a copy of the “Black Book” and reviewed it. The book pro-fesses repeatedly that the Black Family is not a gang, but rather a liberationmovement which emphasizes self-improvement, respect and a move away fromdrugs, violence and a life of crime. Despite the naive Marxism of its content thereis nothing on the surface of the document that would lead a reader to concludethis was a book about running a gang on the streets (the role the Governmentcontends it was used for).
