This committee is dedicated to freeing prisoners who
have been incarcerated for more than 20 years. Both Federal and State justice system hand out sentences that are unjust and need to be reduced. All of these prisoners are asking for clemency and pardons, and/or commutations. Except for the State Prisoners. They are asking for sentence reductions and freedom. We are asking for their freedom. Also my husband John needs letters written for compassionate release and so do others on this list. Please send in your letters of support for their freedom to the officials listed below. You may also write letter of support to the attorney at the National Prison Project listed below.

John Greschner has been incarcerated for 44 years and has been tortured at the hands of a repressive regime that has stolen his life. Since the time in his life when he was housed at USP Marion Ill and tortured there, he has done much to better himself and other prisoners. He and many other Prisoners have suffered years of abuse, such as medical neglect. His friends have all been harmed by the same type of treatment while being housed by the FBOP and State prison systems. John is being housed in a State prison facility. The address listed below is where he is being housed. Please send John some stamps he needs some. And envelopes and writing paper.

He has been kept in isolation for the last 27 years, more than anyone else in the federal prison system.

Jeffrey MacDonald Federal reg. 00131-177
FDC PHILADELPHIA
FEDERAL DETENTION CENTER
P.O. BOX 562
PHILADELPHIA, PA 19105

Dr. Jeffrey R. MacDonald
Dr. Jeffrey R. MacDonald was falsely convicted in August, 1979 of the murder of his wife, Colette, and two young daughters (5 year old Kimberley, and 2 year old Kristen MacDonald) in a bloody and grisly satanic style murder scene that took place in their home in the early morning hours of Feb. 17, 1970 on Ft. Bragg Army base in North Carolina. The murders were committed by a local satanic cult of drug users (referred to as “hippies” in the newspapers at the time) which included five active duty enlisted army men who had targeted the MacDonald family because Dr. MacDonald was perceived by this group of drug users as a “snitch”; as MacDonald was adhering to the base commander’s new policy of reporting the names of Army personnel who were being admitted to the Emergency Room for overdosing on heroin or other serious drugs .One of those cult members (Greg Mitchell) had even threatened a pregnant Colette MacDonald, Jeff’s wife, at the Ft. Bragg college learning center where she was taking a course in psychology, on the very evening before her murder.

The Army CID
Investigators from the Army’s Criminal Investigation Division (CID), from the very beginning of their ‘investigation’ of the crime scene at the MacDonald home, were intent on setting up MacDonald to take the fall for the killings. It wasn’t until some years later that the reasons behind the CID’s mishandling of the crime scene, their concealment of key evidence (that would have proven the presence of other people in the MacDonald home at the time of the murders), and their “losing” of physical evidence under their control (which would have allowed MacDonald to establish his innocence), would begin to emerge.

Initially, MacDonald was exonerated of all charges following a long (nearly four months) Article 32 military hearing in the Summer of 1970. While the CID was trying their best to hang the murders on MacDonald, the fortuitous presence and oversight of a straight shooting Army hearing review officer by the name of Colonel Warren V. Rock saw through the devious machinations of the CID investigators and declared MacDonald innocent of the charges. Rock ruled that the CID charges against MacDonald were simply “nor true”. But MacDonald made the mistake of publicly lambasting the vendetta prone CID investigators during an interview on the Dick Cavett television show in December of 1970 and that set in motion a decision to go after MacDonald with all of the advantage, might, and authority available to government prosecutors.

Despite the utter lack of legal authority and a violation of the Posse Commitatus Act, the same Army CID investigators who tried to frame MacDonald at the Article 32 Army hearing now launched into a ‘re-investigation’ of MacDonald; following him into civilian life after he was discharged from the Army. This eventually led to a 1975 indictment and a 1979 jury trial (spearheaded by ex-CID investigator turned US Justice Department prosecutor Brian Murtaugh and North Carolina state prosecutor James Blackburn) that resulted in a conviction for MacDonald and the imposition of three consecutive life term sentences (the death penalty was outlawed at the time). Attorneys Alan Dershowitz and Harvey Silverglate have called the MacDonald railroading one of ‘the worst cases of prosecutorial misconduct’ in the history of United States jurisprudence.

TERRE HAUTE, IN 47808

Born in San Sebastián, Puerto Rico on January 6, 1943, López Rivera was a part of the massive migration of islanders in the 1950s, and settled in Chicago. By the advent of the Vietnam War, he was drafted into the military and earned a Bronze Star for bravery. Like many other servicemen of color who returned to their communities, he witnessed extreme forms of poverty, substance abuse, and other manifestation of racism and inequality. This motivated López Rivera to organize other community activists and build institutions, initiatives, and programs that still exist today, like the Puerto Rican Cultural Center, Dr. Pedro Albizu Campos High School, and the Latino Cultural Center at the University of Illinois-Chicago. Furthermore, he advocated for fair housing, bilingual education, and an end to police brutality and racist practices in public utilities. Following the international spirit of the times, by the mid-1970s he joined a guerilla organization to step up the pressure on the U.S. government to address the colonial question of Puerto Rico.

By 1981, he and other alleged members of the organization were arrested for seditious conspiracy to overthrow the U.S. government in Puerto Rico and were sent to prison with disproportionate sentences. All but two of his compatriots were released by 1999 due to an international campaign that persuaded President Bill Clinton to offer them clemency. The remaining two were released on parole. Oscar López Rivera remains in prison despite, like his fellow prisoners, denying being a part of any acts that killed or injured anyone. More importantly, he was never charged with such actions.

After coming back from his trip (two years or more) he was arrested for conspiracy and material support. How can a simple trip my son took overseas amount to this? He has been incarcerated for two years now awaiting trial! This profiling of Muslim people needs to stop! We are a normal American family who lived a normal American life. Ziyad is innocent.

Colin has serious medical issues not being attended to and I have written to receivership in Ca. I await reply. Eye injury caused by beating Torn Retina. needs laser surgery to correct. as yet not been done. Eye specialist diagnosed injury caused by blunt force trauma.Colin is already blind in other eye from childhood caused by optical nerve damage. If left untreated he may well go blind. Colin was beaten at Salinas Valley State Prison. His family lives in the UK and can not visit him. Please call every one you can to help this young man. Also, Colin is innocent of the crime he is in prison for. Please protest this.

Colin had his laser surgery to re attach retina, sadly the white flashing spots in the vision and the painful pressure like the right eye is being pushed forward are permanent damage as a result of blunt force trauma caused by guards in the excessive force beating September 2009 at SATF.

Colin Anditon has applied for Prisoner Transfer to serve remainder of his sentence in United Kingdom prison. UK have accepted him on numerous occasions. California keep blocking it. Please call governor Jerry Brown and urge him to intercede. His case will be ready to go for review January 2012.

  • Kentucky, “Dark and Dangerous Ground”

    The Dark and Bloody Ground

    The popular belief that the name Kentucky means "Dark and Bloody Ground" is apparently without foundation. Yet through the years, the image has persisted in literary and oral tradition as a description of the Kentucky country.

    One traditional explanation sites Delaware legend in which the ancient tribe of the Lenni-Lanape allied with the Iroquois to fight the Allegewi, the original inhabitants of Kentucky. In a single bloody battle the Allegewi were virtually exterminated. The land where an entire nation had been eradicated became known as the "dark and bloody ground". The violent clashes between the Iroquois and the southern Indians only helped reinforce the image.

    In his book, "Historical Sketches of Kentucky" (1874), Richard H. Collins says that a northern Indian once asked Indian fighter Joseph H. Daveiss how white men could live in land that had seen so much bloodshed. The Indian said that the ghosts of those killed in the Indian wars haunted the land making it dangerous.

    At the execution of the Treaty of Sycamore Shoals the Cherokee Cheif Dragging Canoe is said to have told Col. Richard Henderson that the lands south of the Kentucky river were "bloody ground"and would be "dark and difficult to settle". However Ruben T. Durrett said in his book, "The Centenary of Kentucky"(1892) that the phrase was used to discourage Henderson from purchasing the land.

  • Our Environment

    Toxic chemicals in our environment, such as mercury, lead, and certain manmade chemicals, have been linked to cancer, birth defects and brain impairments. Reducing or eliminating the load of these dangerous chemicals in the products we buy, the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink can help reduce the toll of human disease and suffering.
