Friends of Tookie Facing Charges
My name is Gloria Ross and my uncle, Anthony Ross is an inmate on San Quentin's Death Row. I have very unfortunate news regarding the situation of approximately eight (8) inmates (figure is yet to be verified) sitting on San Quentin's death row who were very good friends of Stan Tookie Williams.
On December 8, 2005, these men (including my uncle) were taken from their cells by guards in riot gear and told that they were going to be questioned and investigated under the charges that they were conspiring to incite a riot and harm guards following the execution of Tookie. San Quentin charges that they have a confidential source to prove their claims. They are currently being held in solitary confinement in San Quentin's Adjustment Center. They are being denied access to their property. As of yet, there has been no formal investigation and the inmates have not received questioning or a polygraph test.
I just visited my uncle, Anthony Ross, he has lost a lot of weight and his health is steadily deteriorating. His friend, Steve Champion, is also in the hole.
They have requested that individuals and organizations contact San Quentin's warden at (415) 454-1460. These calls should stress that there are individuals AND ORGANIZATIONS on the outside very concerned about their well-being. As long as they are aware that folks have an eye out, they are less likely to abuse their power further.
Thanks so much for your support. Please feel free to call or write me if you have any concerns or questions.
If you are on death row, why are you worried about a criminal investigation?
The rights of inmates on death row are about at the bottom of my list of things I feel outraged about. If their rights are being violated, they shouldn't be, but is this realllllllly something anyone should care one wit about?
If I thought it would do any good, I would call and request they rub out these 8 scumbags at once.
As fine lot of gentlemen as ever stole candy from a baby, I'm sure!
Now that's a call worth making.
They were taken out of their cells and questioned about a conspiracy to incite a riot. They should contact the ACLU.
I'm sure that's only a matter of time. : (
