Albert Woodfox, the Last of the Angola Three, Is Finally Free

Albert Woodfox, the Last of the Angola Three, Is Finally Free

Amy Goodman, Denis Moynihan

Albert Woodfox turned 69 years old Friday. He also was released from prison that day after serving 43 years in solitary confinement, more time than anyone in U.S. history. “Quite a birthday gift,” Woodfox told us on the “Democracy Now!” news hour, in his first televised interview after gaining his freedom. Woodfox is a living testament to the resilience of the human spirit when subjected to the cruel and unusual punishment of solitary. His case also serves as a stark reminder of the injustice that pervades the American criminal-justice system.

Universal Justice will be served via the Law of karma.

"Judge not that ye not be judged."

"Whatsoever you do unto the least of these, you do unto Me (Creator)"

Therefore, in response to the paragraph below, these two no doubt "religious" men will have to meet what they put out in the way of such a cruel and severe inversion of Justice:

"Two major impediments to their freedom were prison warden Burl Cain and Louisiana Attorney General James “Buddy” Caldwell. Cain was the key decision-maker in keeping the men in solitary. In a 2008 deposition in Woodfox’s case, Cain admitted, “I still know that he is still trying to practice Black Pantherism.” And while Woodfox’s case was overturned on three separate occasions, with a federal judge ordering his release, Attorney General Caldwell insisted on repeatedly retrying the case. Cain resigned in December, facing state ethics violations and a criminal probe for business dealings during his reign as the longest-serving warden in Angola’s history."

Thank you, Amy Goodman, for giving air-time to what Mr. Woodfox went through.

The U.S. Criminal Justice System IS Criminal!

Here another example again a black woman involved.

This is horrific. A Woman went to Hospital because of nausea and vomiting. The police learned she was in hospital and proceeded to arrest her for unpaid court fines and removed her to a prison cell where the guards did not provide the care needed. She died in the prison to dehydration and lack of medical attention. In essence she received the death penalty for not paying court fines.

As you suggested the true criminals run the system.

It is AMERICAN JUSTICE THAT HE AND HIS 2 ASSOCIATES WERE IMPRISONED ! It was a MISTAKE & FLAW in that
SENSE & DEFINITION OF 'JUSTICE' THAT SET ALL 3 FREE . The FLAW WAS RATIONAL HUMANITY & EVIDENCE !

The police CAPT. DOWN TO PATROLMAN INVOLVED MUST RESIGN, LOSE THEIR GUN LICENSES, GUNS, & BADGES.
All involved were sufficiently UNPROFESSIONAL as to be PURPOSELY & KNOWINGLY Criminally Negligent & thus, LIBEL & CULPABLE !

A mercy for a human being who suffered a terrible torture that was unquestionably cruel and unusual. For shame that our country permitted this horrible fate to continue for so long. Why was he never pardoned Mr. President? Courts sought his release ... Why given the vindictive nature of the prison and state officials and a lack of evidence which established reasonable doubt, why was he never pardoned Mr. President?

" Universal justice will be served via the law Of karma"
This is the typical one sided view of karma.
Karma is action, good or bad. You are using it in the negative only.
You may be familiar with the Vedic concept of time known as the Yugas. The present Yuga that the earth is in is Kali Yuga. Kali Yuga is the age of destruction and dissolution. The concept of justice has little if any effect in this age. The "Mars rules" leaders as you have said and powerful people that control the planet and it's resources, rarely if ever are punished for their crimes, simply because they are supported by the influence of kali.
The only reason that there might be some isolated " justice " is because the nature of life as love, transcends the influence of the Yugas. People know this intuitively and thus demand that evil behavior be punished. However, it rarely happens to those that are in a position of power.
