After Decades of Injustice, Let the Angola 3 Ruling Stand! ACTION US


US Politics & Gov't  (tags: Angola 3, justice, Albert Woodfox, Attorney General Caldwell, Louisiana, evidence )

This isn't the first or even the second time Albert's conviction has been overturned. Previously judges have cited racial discrimination, misconduct by the prosecution and inadequate defense in their rulings.

I just signed this . . . but GOOD ON YOU for promoting it, Nancy.

(I will never understand how barbarism and cruelty can possibly rehabilitate anyone.)

Already done! 41 years indeed is cruel punishment and solitary confinement is unconscionable. Racism indeed!

Signed & posted and here I thought that things had changed over time. I guess it's more of the same just with a new face. Life still means life at Angola. I guess they've never lived down the scandal caused by Kirksey Nix and the gay telephone scam.

Thanks, Nancy, signed, shared and noted. I'd like to know what the legal remedies would be when a state's attorney general obstructs justice and violates a defendant's civil rights, as happened to Alfred Woodfox.

To clarify my earlier question, what charges could be brought against the attorney general, and in what court?

Way beyond time this was dealt with. It seems to me that 41 years of solitary confinement would constitute "cruel and inhuman punishment"--especially based on the fact that no physical evidence was found to link the men to the crime.
This is simply a total nightmare!
