    Default Scott Sisters to be Freed

    Scott Sisters to be Freed


    Following pleas from advocates from across the country, two Mississippi sisters serving life sentences for a 1993 robbery that netted $11 will soon walk free. Gov. Haley Barbour on Wednesday issued two orders indefinitely suspending the sentences of Jamie and Gladys Scott.

    The sisters, who have been in prison the past 16 years, would not have been eligible for parole until 2014.

    Sen. Willie Simmons, D-Cleveland, called it a "courageous move" by the governor as he considers a run for president.

    "Normally, a candidate would shy away from that," said Simmons, among a handful of lawmakers who have met with Barbour about releasing the sisters.

    Its just a shame that the gross injustice of their case isn't the reason behind their release. I give thanks for the efforts of the our dedicated brothers and sisters and the benevolent spirits working with us for making this happen.

    Yes, a joyous occasion, but indeed a shame. A shame that justice was not served until a man with money and some power seeking more power and money went and paid for justice.

    I can attest to these sisters struggle and have been mailing a few letter every month (since hearing abou the crime) to the governor, and warden lobbying for these ladies' release. Not only was one sister seriously ill(which has been used as consideration for realease/parole on numerous other cases, but not this one), but there was little of any eveidence that these sisters commited this crime. Im sure these sisters wont be offerred any monetary restitution for the years they have lost with their loved ones, nor any fair chance of appeal.

    Of the thousands of cases like this one, where Afrikans where accused and jailed without fair trial, little evidence, no evidence, no spurious evidence there have been only 48 or so brothers and sister exonerated from thier crimes. They (themselves) had to organize the private and non-profit funding it took to attain and sample dna evidence, and after all of that effort only get a mondest monthy stipend for thier 10-50 years of servitude (average service of "the exonorated" - 10 years).

    I pray no more sisters and brothers fal victim to such a brutally bias system such as this one. UHURU SASA!

    One of the many dangers of living in a krakkka controlled country/world is being subject to injustice at their whim. According to past communications from Sis Marpessa "nattyreb" Kupendua, the 3 who actually did the crime have long since been free and apparently just lied on the Scott sisters to get out. We can't expect justice from those who, they themselves are inherently unjust!
