“HELP BRING ME HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS”
picture from google
a life and death appeal from renowned people’s attorney Lynne Stewart.
“I need to ask once again for your assistance in forcing the Bureau of
Prisons to grant my Compassionate Release. They have been stonewalling
since August and my life expectancy, as per my cancer doctor, is down to
12 months. They know that I am fully qualified and that over 40,000 people
have signed on to force them to do the right thing, which is to let me go
home to my family and to receive advanced care in New York City.
“Yet they refuse to act. While this is entirely within the range of their
politics and their cruelty to hold political prisoners until we have days
to live before releasing us – witness Herman Wallace of Angola and Marilyn
Buck – we are fighting not to permit this and call for a BIG push.”
Lynne Stewart, FMC Carswell

Together, we can prevent the bureaucratic murder of Lynne Stewart.
In a new 237-page report entitled “A Living Death,” the American Civil
Liberties Union documents unconstitutional practices permeating federal
and state prisons in the United States.
Focused on life imprisonment without parole for minor offenses, the ACLU
details conditions of 3,278 individual prisoners whose denial of release
is deemed “a flagrant violation of the Eighth Amendment ban on cruel and
unusual punishment” occurring on an increasing scale.
The ACLU labels the deliberate stonewalling as “willful,” a touchstone of
the Federal Bureau of Prisons and the Department of Justice flagrant
violation of the Eighth Amendment ban on cruel and unusual punishment.
These conclusions corroborate the findings of Human Rights Watch in2012:
“The Answer is ‘No’: Too Little Compassionate Release in U.S.Prisons.”
The Report is definitive in exposing arbitrary and illegal conduct that
infuses every facet of the treatment accorded Lynne Stewart.
“…the Bureau has usurped the role of the courts. In fact, it is fair to
say the jailers are acting as judges. Congress intended the sentencing
judge, not the BOP to determine whether a prisoner should receive a
Lynne Stewart’s medical findings show less than twelve months to live as
stipulated by her oncologist at FMC Carswell.
The Federal Bureau Prisons has failed to file the legally required motion
declaring solely that the matter is “with the Department of Justice.”
