FORTY THREE YEARS that I have never seen my Family.
Parole– The parole board interviews me by phone.
They said I had a history of violence and I was a risk to the community and they had new evidence. It has been 43 years and I have been convicted. What new evidence could exist and what could that mean? I’m not coming back to that community so how am I a risk to that community?
I have a parole release date but it means nothing.
They ask what programs I have taken. They say I need programs to be released. They offer no programs. How does this make sense?
This is Florida. Florida is a slave state. This is slavery
Just give me the death penalty.
I am never getting out of prison.
I am going to die here in prison.
