Cleared inmate to speak at Congress

Released from death row:

Cleared inmate to speak at Congress

By Ellie Hidalgo

Juan Roberto Melendez Colon endured 17 years, eight months and one day on Florida's death row for a crime he did not commit. On Jan. 3, 2002, he became the 99th death-row inmate in the United States since 1973 to be cleared of wrongdoing and released from prison.

Melendez now spends part of each year speaking at conferences and law schools and offering living testimony to the pervasive problems of the death penalty system. A captivating and dynamic speaker, Melendez will be telling his story at Congress March 2 at 1 p.m. in English and on March 4 at 10 a.m. in Spanish.

"The death penalty is cruel, unnecessary, costs too much and doesn't deter crime," Melendez, 55, told The Tidings during a recent phone interview. "And there's always a risk that an innocent person is going to be executed."

The father of three daughters was convicted of first degree murder in Central Florida in 1984 based on the false testimony of two questionable witnesses, including one who recanted his story 16 years later.

"There was no physical evidence against me whatsoever," said Melendez. The trial started on a Monday, he was convicted that Thursday and sentenced to death on a Friday.

The former migrant farm worker still marvels at how swiftly the courts can condemn someone --- usually a poor person --- to death.

Even though he was innocent, Melendez's conviction and death sentence were upheld on appeal three times by the Florida Supreme Court. Then in 2000, a long-forgotten transcript of a taped confession by the real killer was discovered in a box of legal papers.

Judge Barbara Fleischer overturned Melendez's conviction and death sentence. She wrote a long opinion highlighting the injustices endured by Melendez and chastising the prosecutor for withholding crucial evidence about the credibility of the witnesses.

What sustained Melendez during the many years he languished in prison?

"My faith in God. Every time I felt suicidal, God sent me a beautiful dream," he said. He also counted on the support of his family --- his mother and five aunts. From Puerto Rico, the women wrote many letters.

Anti-death penalty pen pals around the world wrote to inmates. "They let us know we're not alone. They bring a lot of compassion and make you feel like a human being," he said.

However, Melendez cut off communication with his three daughters. "I didn't want them to go through all the pain," he said.

While in prison Melendez learned to read, write and speak English. His teachers? "The condemned. The worst of the worst taught me how to do that," he said.

What turned out to be most painful, reflected Melendez, were the 51 fellow inmates executed during his time on death row --- men he had gotten to know personally.

"You are next door to him for so many years, 10, 15 years. And then one day they snatch him out of there, and put him in an electric chair," he said.

"Some of them were innocent," he added, rattling off names. "They most likely didn't commit the crime. I couldn't do anything about it. All I could say is, 'I'll see you soon.'"

After Melendez was exonerated and released from prison, he reestablished contact with his daughters. Today he splits his time between the U.S. and Puerto Rico, where he works on a plantain field and counsels troubled youth.

Is he bitter?

"Oh, no. I have no time for that. I don't let the anger dominate me. I'm very happy to be free," said Melendez. "I use my anger to educate people, to let them know that the death penalty is a bad government policy that only brings suffering and pain. We don't need it."

I thought you and your readers might be interested in looking at Manny Gonzales the kid that everyone forgot in the Ca prison system on the WWW.You can Google or Yahoo this title and find the letter that is posted to president Hugo Chavez of Venezuela asking his financial support for Manny's
federal appeal attorneys fees.Thousands of poor prison inmates in prisons all across the US have been forced to write their own federal appeals for possible retrials on their own because the US Congress has not deemed these
prison inmates important enough to assist financially.

America guilty of enslaving thousands of poor prison inmates?
This obvious injustice could very well be taken up in the International Court or even the United Nations as a crime against humanity! Enslaving uneducated poor prison inmates by forcing them to compose their own federal appeals for poosible retrials without legal representation and then turning them down in mass,forcing thousands to remain incarcerated for 25 to 40 years seems devious and almost criminal in itself.
International torture and now national enslavement of poor prison inmates.
Give them liberty or give them federal appeal attorneys!

I have read about your current work and am very glad you have decided to share your past horror with all of America.Manny Gonzales and thousands of other American prison inmates all across the US have also been left out in the cold with our justice system.
President Hugo Chavez has been asked to finance the federal appeal legal fees for Manny Gonzales due to the fact that Manny only has a GED education and not a law degree that would enable him to formulate and write his own federal appeal from his prison.
We invite all of your readers to read the letter writtem to president Chavez posted on the WWW
at Manny gonzales the kid that everyone forgot in the CA prison system !

I just wanted to compliment all the various individuals affiliated with this wonderful web site.We at lawyersforpooramericans@yahoo.com all are very proud and pleased to have you listed within our WWW domain concerning Manny Gonzales the kid that everyone forgot in the Ca prison system.This serious injustice being inflicted on Manny Gonzales and the thousands of other poor prison inmates all across America who are being forced to be their own best lawyers concerning their federal appeals for retrial reviews, is our on our agenda until they all are given liberty or given federal appeal attorneys to assist them! Legitimate and properly composed Federal Appeals written by proper legal representation needs to become the norm for all Americans, not just the wealthy ones!
Thank you all once again for this fantastic web site
and lets hope more Americans gain the wisdom to
understand that our truly innocent victims in our US prisons need every legal opportunity to prove their legal cases.If we as a democratic and free society dare to continue in this cut off of financial resources to have federal appeal attorneys represent our poor in their quest of retrials, then
the needed international outreach to world leaders
such as president Hugo Chavez must continue and be enlarged by the masses of incarcerated prison inmates being deprived of equal justice in this the richest country in the world.
Sincerely
Douglas Field

I also am very glad to have had the opportunity to have visited your web site. This Manny Gonzales
federal appeal issue concerning President Hugo Chavez and the apparent neglect of the US Congress
to finance federal appeal cases for thousands of poor prison inmates is very disturbing for me and my husband. Were from the old school where Americans rich or poor would stick together in making sure everyone living here in America had equal opportunities and protections.

Darla Henry said...

I found this information very helpful and encouraging that we as Americans should all be aware that there are many innocent fellow citizens in our US prisons.Manny Gonzales the kid that everyone forgot in the Ca prison system is what brought me to your site and I
can only hope this Gonzales kid is not writing his testimony on your WWW site 27 years from now!

Elated to be able to view this very sad but enlightening
web site.My wife and I wish all these past victims of our judicial system our loving thanks for making your
stories internationally known. Happy New Year to all
of you and may God forgive us all for not having fairer minds to not convict those charged just because they are being held captive in our vast American prison system.

The US Congress can no longer continue to pretend they do not know or care about changing the unjust and horrible situation for the 100,000 innocent American prison inmates being falsely incarcerated along with the reported 2 million total US prison population.These Congressional leaders are suppose to be capable and bright enough to correct injustices in our democratic
society.The federal appeal judicial process was designed for all Americans to be able to properly
utilize,not just wealthy citizens who can afford their own federal appeal lawyers.

Lawyers For Poor Americans said...

First the US Blacks,and now the US Hispanics !

The most devious and deceptive way to keep certain groups of American citizens falsely imprisoned is to simply deny them proper federal appeal legal counsel.
Black Americans had to deal with this exact injustice 100 years ago all through our Southern States.Poor American prison inmates with little educational skills being forced to submit their own federal appeal legal cases nationwide,has turned out to become the longest continued injustice in the American Judicial System!Quietly and falsely incarcerating 100,000 innocent American prison inmates nationwide can only be done with the US medias cooperation or neglect!

Mona Smith said...

As "US taxes are for only the little people," US Federal Appeals are only for the affluent!

Asking tens of millions of the middle class and poor working class Americans to support with their taxes, a US Federal Appeal Judicial Process that only serves up justice to only those Americans capable of affording their own Federal Appeal lawyers,is an injustice needing National Media exposure!

WHEN THE INNOCENT ARE ABANDONED BY THE GUILTY !

What kind of judea Christian values is our country demonstrating to the rest of the world when there are a reported 100,000 innocent and falsely imprisoned inmates who can not find one American political leader or National Media source who is willing to take the high road of fighting for justice and equality within the federal appeal judicial process ? Great societies that do not even protect their innocent, become the guilty !

Lawyers For Poor Americans said...

When the legally unprotected innocent poor Americans are continuing to be falsely imprisoned in the US, and our wise Congressional Leaders Of The Free World do not seem even remotely interested in lifting a finger to abate this injustice,then it might just be the proper time for the Pope to speak at the United Nations about this horror,so the rest of the world can be made aware that human enslavement of poor citizens can even happen in the wealthiest country of the world!

Sue said...

There is something very unethical with our American judicial system which allows only wealthy Americans with proper legal representation for their federal appeals to have real opportunities of being granted new retrials,and the tens of thousands of innocent prison inmates without the proper benefit of any legal counsel,to be consistently denied in mass their equal opportunities at receiving federal judges positive decisions of new retrials.
If having 100,000 falsely imprisoned in this country is not enough of a wakeup call for our
US Congress to end this injustice,
then why would any caring American be upset if President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela decided to get involved in assisting these 100,000 innocent falsely incarcerated Americans who not only have been abandoned and forgotten by their own Government leaders,but have also been ignored and neglected by our National Media who pretends they do not even exist??

Douglas Field said...

The prison experts have reported that there are 100,000 innocent Americans currently being falsely imprisoned along with the 2,300,000 total US prison population nationwide. Since our US Congress has never afforded poor prison inmates federal appeal legal counsel for their federal retrials,they have effective closed the doors on these tens of thousands of innocent citizens ever being capable of possibly exonerating themselves and regain their freedom through being granted new retrials. This same exact unjust situation was happening in our Southern States when poor and mostly uneducated black Americans were being falsely imprisoned for endless decades without the needed educational skills to properly submit their own written federal retrial appeals. This unjust judicial process of making our poor and innocent prison inmates formulate and write their own federal appeal legal cases for possible retrials on their state criminal cases,is still in effect today even though everyone in our US judicial system knows that without proper legal representation, these tens of thousands of innocent prison inmates will be denied their rightful opportunities of ever being granted new trials from our federal appeal judges .

GOOD OLD SOUTHERN JUSTICE

IN LA LEGAL

What we have here in this Manny Gonzales criminal case is a jury, judge and DA taking care of their communities safety from gangs in a typical vigilante hang him high process. The presiding judge tells both attorneys (defense and prosecution ) prior the trial that this specific case is not gang related and advises the DA to instruct their witnesses not to mention or insinuate gang association information to the jury. At this point in this trial the presiding judge is aware of and protective of the defendants rights to a fair trial, knowing darn well that if a La jury is lead to believe(rightly or wrongly) a defendant is affiliated with a gang that a fair trial is almost impossible. What happens when this DA decides to use gang association (over the judges denials) on this jury is really quite devious.LA judges are allowing these type of unjust trials to continue knowing these defendants can appeal for a new trial from prison after they lose their jury trials. Local DA's know this local judicial system will not dismiss a jury due to DA's using gang association with defendants and they have a free hand to play their jury to the max. This play acting between the presiding judge pretending to protect the defendants right to a fair trial and the devious DA who wants to protect our society by taking justice into their own hands is a little what Manny Gonzales and his public defender had to deal with. Any judge that allows a rogue DA to disobey their specific orders on misleading their jury into believing the defendant is either a gang member or the specific crime is gang related should have the common sense and decency to dismiss the jury and call for a new trial. This kid Manny Gonzales tried as an adult needed this judge not just to set the guidelines in the start of the trial with this rouge DA,but also to continue to protect the defendant with his right to a fair trial throughout the entire trial. When this presiding judge allowed this trial to continue the jury believed both the DA and the judge that Manny Gonzales was a gang member and this specific shooting incident was not related to his affiliation with gang activity. Every night during this two week trial this jury went home and had the opportunity to watch gang violence reported on their nightly news. How could any reasonable person think that
Manny Gonzales and his public defender could defeat a presiding judge, rogue DA,and a inflamed jury with possible nightly exposure to gang TV violence ?
If anyone deserves a call for GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME A NEW TRIAL Manny Gonzales Does !

When The US Congress Denied Masses Of Americans Their Possible Freedoms !

When the wealthiest country in the world continues to allow the enslavement of the tens of thousands of their own innocent Middle Class and Working Poor Americans to decades of false imprisonment it's time to ask for international help!!!!
Currently there are reported to be 100,000 falsely imprisoned Americans living along with the estimated 2,000,000 US prison population nationwide.America now has the very unique distinction of not only being rated the #1 in the World for having the largest prison population,but America also has the distinct rating of having the largest wrongfully imprisoned prison population in the World as well.Our US Congress affords themselves all the perks and salary most Americans could only dream about,but ask anyone of these Leaders Of The Free World to protect our Middle Class or Working Poor Americans from continuing to be falsely imprisoned endless decades due to the lack of federal appeal legal counsel being afforded them, and you just might be thought of as being crazy?The masses of the American people could never come close to ever being able to burden these federal appeal legal costs for themselves or for a family member,and should not need a lobbying group for this basic right of legal protection to be afforded them! Our Poster Child of this exact neglect by our US Congress is this young man named Manny Gonzales.Anyone interested in reading first hand how our US Congress is willing to allow our judicial system to continue keeping this now 21 year old young man imprisoned for 27 mandatory years for frightening someone with a hand gun(not even injuring the so called victim,) without affording him federal appeal legal counsel to properly be able to defend himself in our Federal courts of Appeal? Manny Gonzales The kid that everyone forgot in the CA prison system can be entered into any WWW search engine for the judicial ride of ones life! Tens of thousands of other Americans being imprisoned in the US are facing this same lack of legal counsel everyday,and with this lack of legal counsel being denied their right to new retrials,which in turn forces thousands to remain endless decades in our prison systems of the wealthiest country in the world!
Just like the German population prior WW2,the American people and our National Media have not felt any concern or interest to speak out about about our country having so many of our fellow Middle Class and Working Poor citizens being falsely imprisoned and not even being afforded the proper Federal Appeal legal counsel to assist in their attempt at exonerating themselves! This situation with the lack of federal appeal legal counsel has gotten so serious,and because it's affecting so many innocent citizens in America, that President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela has even been asked to finance the federal appeal legal fees for the Manny Gonzales federal court legal appeal taking place at the Central CA Federal District Court in Riverside California.

OUR US CONGRESS IS HOLDING 100,000 INNOCENT AMERICAN PRISON INMATES HOSTAGE !!!

NO $$ NO JUSTICE

NO LOBBY, NO US SENATE ASSISTANCE !

NO $$ NO LOBBY == 100,000 INNOCENT AMERICANS FALSELY IMPRISONED IN US.

TENS OF THOUSANDS OF INNOCENT POORER AMERICAN PRISON INMATES NEED INTERNATIONAL ASSISTANCE FOR LEGAL FEES IN HELPING THEM ATTEMPT TO EXONERATE THEMSELVES FROM OUR US PENAL COLONIES!

Most Americans are well aware that there are plenty of innocent poorer US citizens in our prison systems nationwide,but very few of us have ever heard about our US Congressional representatives who are mostly lawyers themselves, denying our Middle Class and Working Poor Americans proper legal counsel for their federal appeals. When any poorer American is charged with a Federal crime all legal costs and appeals are paid for,but when one is charged in the various 50 states and run out of higher court state appeal opportunities and need to appeal to the Federal courts,it appears that these poorer and mostly uneducated prison inmates are left to their own best lawyering skills to attempt to write a federal appeal that could sway a US Federal judge to grant them a new retrial.
Our US Congressional Representatives sleep soundly every night knowing there are reported to be an estimated 100,000 innocent Americans (some residing for decades even on death row) in our US Prisons who have been denied proper legal counsel to help them attempt to exonerate themselves with their Federal Appeals?
*USA WHERE FREE SPEECH IS RESPECTED AND PROTECTED

Douglas Field said...

It appears that the US Supreme Court way back in 1984 knew the injustice of our federal appeal retrial review process really only being available for affluent Americans to get benefit from.

The masses of poor and mostly uneducated prison inmates who are being forced to write their own federal appeal legal cases, are being denied new trials by the federal courts in mass all across this country everyday.

Some believe this injustice stems way back in our history to pre Civil War era when the US Southern States were railroading blacks into prolonged prison sentences and knowing all along that the Federal Courts would never grant these poor black prison inmates new trials because they never could properly write their own federal appeal legal cases.

The real horror here is that this form of injustice is even in 2008 assisting in the prolonged false incarceration of over 100,000 innocent mostly uneducated American prison inmates nation-wide.

We all know the federal appeal retrial process was designed for all Americans as a fail safe device that every American should be entitled to utilize, but it is quite obvious that our government has allowed this appeal process to slip into a completely new facade in which it has become an exclusive opportunity for only rich Americans to be able to properly benefit from.

For our judicial system and our US Congressional Leaders Of The Free World to continue to pretend that this is a real and fair opportunity for our American Middle Class and Working Poor Citizens, only delays the very needed future change of Federal Financing of all these Federal appeals becoming a normal formula of Our American judicial system.

WITH 80% OF THE BLACK AMERICAN VOTERS SAYING THEY SUPPORT SENATOR OBAMA IN THIS PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, IT IS ONLY FAIR FOR EVERYONE TO KNOW PRIOR BEING ELECTED OUR NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES HOW THIS DEMOCRATIC SENATOR TRULY FEELS ABOUT THIS AMERICAN JUDICIAL INJUSTICE CONTINUING TO INFLICT GRAVE HARM ON THE BLACK & LATINO AMERICAN FAMILIES AND THEIR COMMUNITIES NATIONWIDE ???

*** WHEN GOD’S FACE BECAME VERY RED ***
THE US SUPREME COURT GAVE ENEMY COMBATANTS FEDERAL APPEAL HC RIGHTS LAWYERS AND PROPER ACCESS TO US FEDERAL COURTS,AND POORER AMERICANS (MANY EVEN ON DEATH ROW) ARE DENIED PROPER FEDERAL APPEAL LEGAL REPRESENTATION TO OUR US FEDERAL COURTS OF APPEAL, AND ROTTING IN AMERICAN PRISONS NATIONWIDE ????

**** INNOCENT AMERICANS ARE DENIED REAL HC RIGHTS WITH THEIR FEDERAL APPEALS !
THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE $LOWLY FINDING OUT HOW EA$Y IT I$ FOR MIDDLE CLA$$ AND WORKING POOR AMERICAN$ TO FALL VICTIM TO OUR U$ MONETARY JUDICIAL $Y$TEM.

****WHEN THE US INNOCENT WERE ABANDONED BY THE GUILTY ****
The prison experts have reported that there are 100,000 innocent Americans currently being falsely imprisoned along with the 2,300,000 total US prison population nationwide.

Since our US Congress has never afforded poor prison inmates federal appeal legal counsel for their federal retrials,they have effectively closed the doors on these tens of thousands of innocent citizens ever being capable of possibly exonerating themselves to regain their freedom through being granted new retrials.

This same exact unjust situation was happening in our Southern States when poor and mostly uneducated Black Americans were being falsely imprisoned for endless decades without the needed educational skills to properly submit their own written federal trial appeals.

This devious and deceptive judicial process of making our poor and innocent prison inmates formulate and write their own federal appeal legal cases for possible retrials on their state criminal cases,is still in effect today even though everyone in our US judicial system knows that without proper legal representation, these tens of thousands of innocent prison inmates will be denied their rightful opportunities of ever being granted new trials from our federal appeal judges!!

Sadly, the true US *legal* Federal Appeal situation that occurs when any of our uneducated American prison inmates are forced to attempt to submit their own written Federal Appeals (from our prisons nationwide) without the assistance of proper legal counsel, is that they all are in reality being denied their legitimate rights for Habeas Corpus and will win any future Supreme Court Case concerning this injustice!

For our judicial system and our US Congressional Leaders Of The Free World to continue to pretend that this is a real and fair opportunity for our American Middle Class and Working Poor Citizens, only delays the very needed future change of Federal Financing of all these Federal appeals becoming a normal formula of Our American judicial system.

It was not so very long ago that Public Defenders became a Reality in this country.Prior that legal reality taking place, their were also some who thought giving anyone charged with a crime a free lawyer was a waste of taxpayers $$.

This FACADE and HORROR of our Federal Appeal proce$$ is not worthy of the Greatest Country In The World!

I’m a little late on writing about this story (via several sources), but it sure is a doozy.

You know how it’s common knowlege that most appeals aren’t successful? Well, if you were a pro-se petitioner in Louisiana for the last 13 years, you knew that you wouldn’t win. Why is that? Because the Chief Judge of their Court of Appeals directed his clerk to summarily deny all appeals from pro-se petitioners without circulating the appeal to other judges.

The clerk, ridden with guilt, committed suicide earlier this year and left a note confessing everything.

This immoral and apparently illegal policy was in place until Jerrold Peterson, the staffer charged with implementing it, blew his brains out in May of last year. Peterson was driven to it in part, his suicide note suggested, by guilt over the nefarious tasks the judges made him perform.

In his note Peterson explained how the court gave indigent appellants the bum’s rush.

Although every criminal writ application is supposed to be reviewed by three judges, he was deputed to winnow out any that had been filed pro se and arrange for their automatic rejection.

Thus were an estimated 2,500 appeals deep-sixed without any judicial consideration whatsoever.

Now, facing public embarassment and possible ethical violations, the Louisiana Supreme Court has stepped in and asked…get this…the same appellate court to look at the appeals again. Note that they did not ask the Court to conduct an investigation into this practice, but simply to consider those appeals that were so summarily denied.

Because, if we placate the defendants with another cursory look at their appeals, we can sweep the ethical violations under the carpet.

At first this whole thing seemed rather odd to me. After all, how is this even possible? Here’s how:

Edward Dufresne, Chief Judge of the Fifth Circuit, took charge of pro se appeals in 1994. He then had Peterson prepare rulings denying writs for all of them and signed off “without so much as a glance,” according to the suicide note. “No judge ever saw the writ application before the ruling was prepared by me,” Peterson wrote in a second suicide note to the Judiciary Commission.

The rulings also bore the names, though not the signatures, of judges Marion Edwards and Wally Rothschild. Neither Edwards nor Rothschild had any clue as to what was in the applications, or even knew that they had been filed, according to Peterson.

So you’ve got one complicit judge and maybe three. But there are 5 more on that court. What of them? Are we to really believe that these 5 (or 7) other judges never once questioned the stark absence of pro-se appeals? Particularly in Louisiana, whose system has the following characteristics:

* About 90 percent of criminal defendants in Louisiana are indigent.
* Louisiana only provides post-conviction legal aid in death penalty cases. Everyone else must either hire a lawyer, find a lawyer to handle their case pro bono, or handle the appeal themselves. Obviously, most have no choice but to opt for the latter.
* One criminal defense lawyer in Louisiana told me that if you’re convicted of murder in Louisiana and you’re innocent, you’re actually better off getting the death penalty. At least then you’ll get a team of lawyers, investigators, and experts to help with your appeal.

This from a state whose criminal justice system was already crumbling. It’s hard to believe that people such as Judge Dufresne take an oath to uphold the law and to prove equal protection under it. Disbarment may be enough, but only barely.

Justice delayed is no justice at all.

THE GREAT LIE
by Gerry Spence

The idea that we should furnish the poor with a public defender has been an effort to save our nation from shame - for sending the poor to prison without adequate representation. But today the nation’s public defender system has become a mockery of justice.

To provide an accused with a public defender who has three hundred other cases to defend is simply to laugh in the face of both justice and the accused himself. It takes me months to prepare the average criminal case for trial. The trial itself can take weeks, even months.

While O.J. Simpson was being tried in Los Angeles for murder, a case that cost millions to defend and months to conclude, another black man was being tried in the same courthouse for a similar murder. It took only three days for a jury to find him guilty. He had a public defender with scores of other cases to defend. Many prosecutors boast that they have over a 90 percent conviction rate. Little wonder. Under the present public defender system the prosecutors should enjoy one hundred percent convictions, and many in fact approach perfect conviction rates.

The public defenders in seven states have finally refused to take on any new cases. It’s about time. If I walked into court to defend my client and had never talked him, never previously opened his file, never discovered the witnesses against him, much less interviewed them, never reviewed the evidence in the hands of the prosecution, never demanded my clients rights to discovery, never read the cases relevant to the case at hand, never prepared the cross examination of the witnesses against my client, never … and on and on, I would be guilty of legal malpractice.

Every public defender who purports to represent an accused under circumstances in which he or she has neither the time nor the resources to fully defend the client is guilty of malpractice. These public defenders cannot be saved from malpractice because they are crushed under a ridiculous case load - some with even as many as five hundred cases or more. No one who was accused with such an attorney has received a fair trial and every such accused is entitled to an appeal on that basis alone. The judge must not sentence the accused under these circumstances because the judge would be taking part in a fraud on the system. Yet hundreds of thousands of indigent persons go to prison each year under circumstances no better than those outlined above.

When I was coming up as a young prosecutor, the defendants were represented pro bono by the lawyers in the local bar. It was part of the duty of members of the bar to take part in the justice system. Today that idea is unheard of. The practice of law is first and foremost a money-making profession. I see nothing wrong with that notion, but what about giving back?

Every trial lawyer should be required to take on a couple of pro bono cases every year. At our office we have a separate pro bono law firm and have for over ten years. It often brings us more satisfaction than our big money wins. The job of a lawyer is to represent the people - the lost, the forgotten, the damned, the hated, the voiceless and the poor. Indeed, God forbid, we may one day become one of those who are entitled to representation but cannot afford it.

Every time an accused goes to prison without having received a fair trial we are one step closer to the loss of our own freedoms. Our rights are, in fact, being fought for by public defenders who can never fulfill their duty to their clients because of their pathetic, impossible, caseloads. When they fail, we are in danger. Our system becomes a hypocritical charade. And we prove, once and for all, that the promised justice for all in America is an evil lie that is imposed on the poor.

If only those with money can receive justice, then how can we permit our children to recite a horrible falsehood in school when they chant, “with liberty and justice for all.” That can no longer be the truth in America.

PLEASE JOIN THE TROY DAVIS AND MUMIA ABU-JAMAL INTERNATIONAL 3 YR BOYCOTT OF GA + PA !!!

BOTH OF THESE CALLOUS STATES COULD EASILY AFFORD NEW TRIALS FOR THESE 2 MEN AND OBVIOUSLY COULD CARE LESS WHAT THE REST OF THE WORLD THINKS ABOUT THEIR STATES JUDICIAL SYSTEMS FUTURE EXECUTIONS OF POSSIBLE INNOCENT AMERICAN CITIZENS.


THESE TWO HIGH PROFILE LEGAL CASES IN GEORGIA AND PENNSYLVANIA SHOULD ENLIGHTEN US ALL TO THE DIFFICULTIES OUR CURRENT U.S JUDICIAL SYSTEM HAS IN KNOWING BEYOND A SHADOW OF A DOUBT THAT THEY HAVE THE REAL CRIMINAL WAITING ON DEATH ROW TO BE EXECUTED!

WHEN ONE LOOKS AT THE CURRENT CRIMINAL FEDERAL APPEAL DEFENSE BEING OFFERED THESE TWO POORER DEATH ROW INMATES,WE ALL NEED TO BE A LITTLE MORE AWARE THAT HAVING REAL LEGAL REPRESENTATION FOR ONES FEDERAL APPEALS IS ONLY A VERY SMALL PORTION OF WHAT IS NEEDED IN ONES SEARCH FOR JUSTICE HERE! THESE TWO POSSIBLE INNOCENT AMERICAN CITIZENS NEVER HAD PROPER LEGAL REPRESENTATION IN THEIR FIRST TRIALS AND LETS NOT FORGET REAL REALITY HERE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AMERICA HAS NEVER OFFERED POORER AMERICANS A LEGITIMATE OPPORTUNITY TO PROVE ONES NON GUILT IN OUR U.S.JUDICIAL SYSTEM.IT TAKES REAL $$$ TO MAKE SURE OUR INNOCENT CITIZENS ARE PROTECTED,AND SADLY OUR U.S CONGRESS HAS NEVER THOUGHT MIDDLE CLASS AND WORKING POOR AMERICAN CITIZENS ARE WORTH THE OUTLAY OF FUNDING ??

FOR DECADES OUR IVORY TOWER U .S. CONGRESSIONAL LEADERS OF THE FREE WORLD HAVE ONLY LOOKED THE OTHER WAY IN EVEN THINKING ABOUT OFFERING THE LITTLE PEOPLE IN AMERICA JUSTICE IN OUR COURT ROOMS! NO,MONEY TALK$ IN OUR AMERICAN JUDICIAL $YSTEM, AND WE THE LITTLE PEOPLE IN AMERICA ARE BEING FALSELY INCARCERATED AND EXECUTED ALL ACROSS THE WEALTHIEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD .............

WHEN LEGAL MINDS DO NOT HAVE THE PROPER INVESTIGATIVE MINDS WORKING IN CONJUCTION WITH THEM IN ANY OF THESE DEATH ROW LEGAL CASES,WE THE PUBLIC CAN NEVER REALLY KNOW THAT THE PEOPLE BEING EXECUTED IN THIS COUNTRY ARE THE REAL BAD GUYS !!!

LAWYERS FOR POOR AMERICANS HAS ALWAYS FELT THAT A FEDERAL TASK FORCE MADE UP OF TOP FLIGHT LAWYERS AND INVESTIGATORS IS NEEDED TO ASSURE US ALL THAT REAL JUSTICE IS BEING CARRIED OUT IN THESE EXECUTIONS NATIONWIDE.

SINCE ALL OF US ARE ALL VERY WELL AWARE OF HOW MANY AMERICANS LIE IN THEIR EVERYDAY PERSONAL AND BUSINESS AFFAIRS,YOU WOULD THINK WE WOULD ALL BE ALOT BRIGHTER IN KNOWING THAT HONEST TESTIMONY IS ALSO NOT HAPPENING IN OUR COURT ROOMS ACROSS OUR COUNTRY AS WELL? YES IT WOULD BE WONDERFUL IF EVERYONE WERE HONEST IN AMERICA,NOT JUST THE CRIMINALS BEING TRIED,CONVICTED AND THEN EXECUTED BY OTHER LIARS,CHEATS AND THIEFS IN COURTS ALL ACROSS AMERICA. ...
