Lynne Stewart was sent to prison today. People throughout the United States and around the world recognize this as a great miscarriage of justice.
Her indictment was an outrage. So too was her conviction. The fact that this seventy year old veteran civil rights attorney has been sent to prison is a crime itself. She is serving a 28 month sentence although the Court of Appeals has remanded her case back to the original trial court with the hope that her sentence will be lengthened. The Bush Justice Department had sought a 30 year sentence.
Lynne Stewart should be set free, stated Brian Becker, national coordinator of the ANSWER Coalition. Her conviction is part of an-going war against civil rights and particularly against the Arab-American and Muslim community. With her jailing the government is sending a definite and chilling message to all the attorneys in this country do not represent Arab people and or Muslims.
In recent weeks the government has seized mosques in the United States at the same time as they have implanted agent provocateurs and set up sting operations and carried out FBI assassinations targeting the American Muslim community and its leaders.
The irony and hypocrisy of Lynne Stewarts imprisonment cant be overlooked. This admired civil rights attorney who is struggling with cancer is sent to prison while the Bush attorneys who authorized and instructed the most sadistic torture occupy comfortable positions as law professors and serve as judges on the federal bench. It is they who should be disbarred, prosecuted and sent to prison.
To send Lynne a letter, write: Lynne Stewart, 53504-054, MCC-NY, 150 Park Row, New York, NY 10007
Lynne Stewart in prison is hardly even a small scratch on the surface of the leftists, socialists and muzzie sympathizers who OUGHT to be incarcerated.
It’s time to take back the country. Use of the penal institutions should be a tool in that pursuit.
Crank-up “Ole’ Sparky”!
I second that emotion, gigster!
Free her? Shucks... I think they should throw away the key. Sedition.
28 months for treason. Nice.
There’s no possible way that I could agree more with her release from prison - by way of lethal injection for committing treason against her own country while we are at war.
She certainly deserves to remain in prison.
That traitor can rot with the dirty moslems.
With bacon on top.
a scary dude.
She should have been sentenced to death for collaboration with the enemy.
