41 yrs and still in solitary confinement in the USA

Sadly Herman Wallace has spent over 40 years in solitary confinement in the US state of Louisiana, found guilty on dubious evidence at best.

Herman Wallace was originally jailed for armed robbery but then convicted - along with Albert Woodfox - of the murder of a prison guard in 1972, despite the fact that no physical evidence links them to the crime. Meanwhile, potentially exculpatory DNA evidence has been lost, and the testimony of the main eyewitness has been discredited. Citing racial discrimination, misconduct by the prosecution and inadequate defence, state and federal judges have overturned Woodfox’s conviction three times, while Wallace’s case is again being reviewed by the federal courts.

I believe we at the DP should get behind (or in front of) the effort to release this ex-black panther as proof that we want the same thing as Dr. MLK - equal rights and justice for ALL people.
