Herman Wallace is being immediately released from prison where he spent 40 years in solitary confinement without a proper trial - or any hard evidence. A black man in the south, he was convicted of the murder of a white prison guard, and sentenced by an all-white jury and judge. It's reported he has days to liveThis is very hard to take in...
"Today’s small victory has come tragically late. But it is, nevertheless, a tiny glimpse of light on the horizon dawning justice. Wallace should not be seen as an isolated incident, but as an exemplar of the injustice that has pervaded the United States legal system from its inception."
