Held 3 years in prison, without a trial, because he was accused of stealing a backpack, in the U.S., in 2010

I'd like to see the screw ups that did that to him publicly humiliated and all those in the chain of command on trial... NO self trials/investigations!

now I gotta go to bed upset.... ARRGH!

This thread deserves much more attention that it's going to get probably. There's not a lot to say except h joins a long long line of victims who have been cheated out of their lives by authority and prejudice.
Peace Kalief Browder

Guilty of being black ?

It's a crime here too.

RIP.

Prison is a brutalizing and dehumanizing place.For every Browder there must be 100 that live, but are permanently hardened and come out a greater threat to society than they went in. It's a deeply flawed system that reflects the dark, Puritanical side of American society.
