This could have been any one of us, or any one of our children who was falsely arrested, railroaded, and imprisioned. If we let this stand, who will be next?

Watch: Art Exhibit Recreates Tiny Cell Where the Late Herman Wallace Spent 42 Years in Solitary

Watch: Art Exhibit Recreates Tiny Cell Where the Late Herman Wallace Spent 42 Years in Solitary | SocialAction2014 | Scoop.it
We speak with New Orleans-based artist Jackie Sumell about her collaboration with former prisoner and Black Panther, Herman Wallace. As Democracy Now! reported in October of 2013, Wallace died just days after his conviction was overturned and he was released from nearly 42 years in solitary confinement. He was a member of the Angola 3, who was convicted for the 1972 murder of a prison guard, but long maintained his innocence and said they were framed for their political activism. The project Wallace worked on with Sumell began when she asked him, "What sort of house does a man who has lived in a 6-foot-by-9-foot cell for over 30 years dream of?" You can see his response in the exhibit called "#76759: Featuring the House That Herman Built." The exhibit opened this week at the Brooklyn Public Library’s main branch and includes a life-sized replica of Wallace’s prison cell, selections from his correspondence with Sumell, books from his reading list, and, in the library’s main lobby, a model of the dream house that he designed.

President of the United States, U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives: Eliminate Immunity for all prosecutors who are guilty of any type of official misconduct whether malicious or negligent.

President of the United States, U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives: Eliminate Immunity for all prosecutors who are guilty of any type of official misconduct whether malicious or negligent. | SocialAction2014 | Scoop.it
If prosecutors follow the law then the blanket immunity which they enjoy would not be necessary. Unfortunately, the reality is that because of immunity, many prosecutors routinely violate ethical norms and legal standards by prosecuting people who they know, or should know, to be innocent. They routinely disregard exculpatory evidence, and often fail to divulge this information to defense attorneys. Prosecutors need to be held accountable for their misdeeds, whether malicious or negligent, when they result in the destruction or severe disruption of innocent individuals lives.
Please enact a federal statute that strips away immunity from prosecutors, regardless of their jurisdictional venue, who pursue actions against individuals where the evidence clearly demonstrates that the allegations against the individual who they are charging are clearly false, and retroactively provide for compensation to victims of this type of egregious prosecutorial misconduct .
