Albert Woodfox Indicted For 3rd Time For 1972 Prison Guard Murder (USA)

Tuesday, February 17th, 2015

From ABC Brighton:

15/02/15

In the protracted saga of the US State’s victimisation of the Angola 3, the Attorney General’s office has decided to indict him for a third time for the 1972 murder of Louisiana State Penitentiary prison guard Brent Miller. Albert, who has spent more than 40 years in solitary confinement, has had his conviction overturned three times, yet the State continues not to admit defeat and release him. Just as with his comrade Herman Wallace, who was released on October 1, 2013, suffering from terminal cancer was re-indicted two days later but died on October 4, 2013 before he could be re-arrested, they want him to die in prison come what may.

Das sind drei afroamerikanische politische Gefangene, die seit 1971 im Angola-Knast, Staatsgefängnis von Louisana in den USA, einsitzen. Die Strafe sass er auf Grund eines bewaffneten Überfalls ab. Während seinem Prozess ist Albert Woodfox aber aus dem Knast ausgebrochen und ist der Plack Panther Party beigetreten. Trotzdem er wieder verhaftet und inhaftiert wurde, war er weiter aktiv und gründete mit Wallace und King eine Black Panther Party Sektion im Gefängnis. (more…)
