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.

Herman Wallace spent 41 years in solitary confinement after being targeted by the state for his work against racism and oppression from within the prison system. Amnesty International and mainstream news sources recently highlighted the release of Herman Wallace from prison. Tragically, Herman was able to breathe the air of freedom for only 3 days before he passed away. Herman was denied any kind of compassionate release by the state of Louisiana, despite his advanced liver cancer and the prognosis of a mere two months to live. Though it was the circumstances of his original conviction that compelled a judge to grant Herman his freedom, it was the state’s lack of concern for his medical condition that led to the resurgence of public and media interest in his case.
