And isn't it ironic, doncha think?

A little toooo ironic, yeah I really do think
 
2013-10-01 05:48:55 PM
So the judge died of liver cancer, or the inmate?

Your headline lacks clarity.

Serious question:  What in the everloving fark is an inmate of 41 years going to do free?  I'm not saying he should or shouldn't be released, I'm not at all familiar with the case but that's a LONG time to be institutionalized.  And poor health to boot.  What exactly is he going to do?  Where will he go?

But did he go down on Dave Coulier in a theater?
 
2013-10-01 06:31:17 PM
He probably should have shaken hands with that John Coffey feller.

No cruel and unusual punishment here. Move along citizen.

Angola is farking Hell on Earth.  As such, it is only moderately less tolerable than Louisiana in general.
 
2013-10-01 06:39:17 PM
Why solitary? Don't you have to shiv someone or something to get that? I guess you don't have to worry about rape.

hmmm im guessing its cheaper to release him
than to provide any treatment

(released to the care of his community )

DrSansabeltNoShiatSlacks: Hopefully, the judge dies a horrible death. Judges = evil.


I'm pretty sure the judge from the original trial is dead. As for waiting so long on habeus corpus issue, that goes to the state not the federal judge who released him.

He was convicted of stabbing a guard to death.
His fingerprints were not the ones found on the murder weapon.
This country can sure suck greasy ass sometimes.

Was the Asinine tag locked away in a forgotten solitary confinement cell?
 
2013-10-01 07:05:41 PM
41 years...

He's been in solitary confinement for my entire lifetime.

Kindergarten, elementary school, middle school, high school, orchestra, community theater, the Army, a war, a hurricane, a career, a second career, a family...

All while he sat alone in a cell.

If I believed in God it's shiat like this that would make me stop.

Poor misunderstood murderer and terrorist. Obviously it was his stint in prison BEFORE being a terrorist that made him into a terrorist. Oh, and white people.

If he is indeed guilty, I don't give a damn either.  But all that aside, wouldn't life outside be WORSE given his present situation?  After all those years, I would think one would forget how to human.

Slightly off topic, Taylor Swift might be making a Gone with the Wind remake, no shiat.

So when Rhett Butler dumps her she can write a song about it.

I dunno, if 41 years in solitary isn't cruel and unusual punishment, I don't know what is. Just shoot him if you have to but Jesus. your mind would be scrambled eggs after that.

Suddenly his false imprisonment makes a whole lot of sense.

I think the state owes him healthcare at this point. Tossing a dependent out the door when they suddenly really need you is reprehensible behavior but I suppose such behavior is to be expected from an abusive caregiver.

I loved the ending to that movie. I imagined them living a long, happy, loving life together there...sigh, so romantic.

And of course we have no rule of law, BECAUSE FARK YOU, THAT'S WHY.

"An ambulance is standing by outside the prison and lawyers for Wallace are also present. But the district attorney for East Baton Rouge has challenged the federal court order, and in the light of the challenge the Louisiana department of corrections is refusing to set the prisoner free."

Don't do the crime, if you can't do the time.

Corrupt police, private prisons, and a state invested in keeping its prisons at least 96% full (by contract) means they have a vested interest in locking up as many people as possible and keeping them there...guilty or not.

We, the rest of the world, are more disgusted by the US every day. Keeping a man in isolation for a crime he didn't commit. Private prisons run for profit. And when he's a burden because they have to pay for his healthcare, then that's the point they toss him out.
This guy was a scumbag, but the treatment of this person by the US government is reprehensible.
Move along citizen - nothing to see here. Feel fear and behave or it could be you.
I wouldn't set foot in the US if you paid me.

Fano: He probably should have shaken hands with that John Coffey feller.


Speaking of magical black people...

It's amazing how 3 black inmates who were in a completely different part of the prison when that white prison guard was killed, managed to commit the murder that put them all in solitary confinement fo decades.

/racism sucks
