GIVE THEM LAWYERS OR GIVE THEM LIBERTY !!!
WHICH AMERICANS ARE INTERESTED IN PROTECTING OUR INNOCENT US PRISON INMATES RIGHT TO BEING AFFORDED PROPER LEGAL REPRESENTATION IN OUR US COURTS?
TAX CUT$ , EARMARK$, TRILLION $$ WAR, BILLIONS IN FOREIGN AID, AND WERE TOLD THERE IS NO $$ FOR LAWYERS TO PROPERLY REPRESENT OUR MIDDLE CLASS AND WORKING POOR AMERICANS ? ?
We have all been made publicly aware that Americas 100,000 innocent and falsely imprisoned American inmates nationwide,have no real assistance or protections afforded them by our US Congress concerning their federal retrial appeals!
How in the world can affluent guilty American defendants with proper federal appeal legal counsel,have the greater advantage of receiving new retrials being granted them from our US Federal Judges,then the tens of thousands of innocent poor American prison inmates who are being forced to represent their own federal appeal legal cases from prison??
Innocent but poor prison inmates who are being denied new federal appeal retrials in mass all across our nation,have never had anyone in America interested in focusing on their horror of being falsely imprisoned for decades in the wealthiest nation in the world.
Without proper legal assistance being afforded these innocent prison inmates,they will never really ever be capable of exonerating themselves through the federal appeal judicial process!
We ask every caring and loving American to just attempt to put yourself into this same exact situation for just one minute in your mind. Being falsely imprisoned in an American prison for 25 or 30 years without the US Congress affording you proper legal counsel to ever have the slightest opportunity to possibly exonerate yourself using the federal appeal process.
Lawyers for poor Americans has just recently begun our national educational plea for the hearts and souls of the American people concerning this injustice,and our mission of exposing this injustice and freeing all of our innocent fellow Americans from our national prisons, will not stop until our US Congress legislates the needed and proper funding to bring our innocent and missing American prison inmates back home !!!
