About Damn Time
Well, thanks to all our petitions, phone calls and marchings, Genarlow Wilson is finally FREE! Well, at least in theory. This morning the Georgia Supreme Court demanded that Wilson be freed immediately. Georgia Attorney General Thurbert Baker, the man who appealed a ruling earlier this year that would have freed Wilson, announced that he would not appeal today's ruling. Paperwork and processes have to be done before Wilson is allowed home, which could be very soon. I'm happy, but the way this case is going, I'd like to see pictures of him sitting at home playing Xbox and drinking Kool-Aid before I jump for joy.
Well lets see here. We raised hell for Genarlow, Shaquanda Cotton and the Jena 6 (even though Mychal Bell is back in jail because of his priors). That tells me that giving a damn and doing something whether it be spreading the word, marching, donating to defense funds or flooding our elected officials' offices with letters and phone calls, does make a difference. Now, lets get into action about making sure that getting caught with nooses should be punished to the fullest extent of federal law.
Friday is shaping up to be a good day for brothas on lock down. Lets see if the magic will rub off on T.I.'s hearing today.
