Justice delayed, tampled upon and suppressed


This is a link to a story about the Angola 3, a group of African-American prisoners in state prison in Louisiana. You can go to http://www.angola3.org to learn more about them. They are African-American men who have been held hostage by racism in Louisiana after being false convicted in the death of a prison guard. One of the Angola 3 is suffering from a liver cancer that could have been detected earlier. Now he is pleading for compassionate discharge to be able to live out his last days with friends and family. In a state without justice, how will his request be treated? Here is the link: http://thinkprogress.org/justice/2013/09/12/2607931/terminally-angola-3-man-spent-40-years-solitary-confinement-implores-humane-release/
