from a comrade in a state facility:
Greetings my brotha in struggle, how is life treating you out there? I hope all is well with you and your family. On my end, I am continuing to fight for my freedom and also my correction of status. I’ve been meaning to write to you to thank you for sending me the pamphlet, even though they didn’t allow it in (LOL). Anything of that nature is immediately turned around, destroyed, or confiscated. The system fears rebellion and they will do whatever it takes to quell the fire at first spark. The Native American zines were very informative and I welcome early slave rebellion material, but the riot or prison stoppage material won’t make it to me. On another note, are you aware of anymore happenings with the ‘Chuy’ case? I haven’t seen anything on the news or in the newspaper so I figure they have gotten away with another cold-blooded murder. New Mexico has been under fire for police shootings, and I’m willing to bet that there are plenty other locations dealing with similar issues. What needs to happen is a People’s Court. A court consisting of private citizens that judge cases by moral standards and not by statutory bias. As I stated to you previously, you may be able to truly help the people in jail pending sentencing by teaching them to establish bonds before the clerk and prosecutor does. SF 24, 25, & 25A creates a form of payment that discharges the charges. The lawyer, who is an agent of the court, who is bound by oath, won’t tell us that there is a monetary price that each charge carries; instead they dilly-dally until the client is in dishonor by not paying and then they begin pushing prison time down the throats of unsuspecting clients. Please, I encourage you to research bid bonds, performance bonds, and payment bonds. Google them and see the fraud/non-disclosure being conducted daily in these commercial tribunals. I hope to hear from you after you check it out b/c I really feel that this is a possible game-changer brotha. May you remain in blessings’ shadow, and until we speak again, fight the power.
Your brotha n struggle,
