While there has been some positive developments regarding the promoting of my documentary (i.e. a Jan. 6, screening at Morton Library in New York; a Jan. 22, screening @ Bard College in New York; an upcoming airing of a radio interview on The Final Straw, etc.), I’m still pissed-off by the lack of real activism on behalf of Ohio old-law prisoners. With the exception of the “putting-in-work” prisoner rights nonprofit organization,”Fair Treatment Reform and Reentry,” ain’t nobody in Ohio doing anything for old-law prisoners, except wishing us good luck every six months when they decide to answer a letter or pick up the phone. I can’t take it anymore, and I’m done being quiet about all of these imposters who are clueless-by-choice to what we are going through in here. I’ve seen all kinds of bullshit newsletters that are asking for money on behalf of prisoners who aren’t being helped, but that’s it! I’ve tried to network with all of these frauds, only to learn that they don’t give a damn about us, for real.
The old-law injustice has been going on since July 1,1996. Then, after a documentary comes out, proving that DRC and the Board have been engaged in outright corrupt practices-nobody supports it! Public defender Timothy Young is in the film, but he hasn’t responded to none of my four voice messages that I’ve left since being flopped another FIVE YEARS in August! What type of bullshit is that? I asked this man to post and share the film with his colleagues, but what did I get, though?
But this is the same office that runs the fake-ass Wrongful Conviction Project, who pretended for 3 YEARS that they were working on my innocence claims, only to turn around and tell me that “If they were to overturn my claims, it wouldn’t matter because I still have to go to the Board on my other cases.” But, they knew this from the very first day I wrote them! And just because I have to go before the Board on other cases, this doesn’t excuse the fact that I’m still serving time for crimes I didn’t do!
And the Board is using these cases to help keep me over-incarcerated. But, the Wrongful Conviction Project still doctored their work logs and made it look like they were investigating my claims! Man, these frauds never even pursued the video evidence, which the records state captured the suspects who did the Broadway robberies. If you are a so-called innocence project, why wouldn’t you–in a span of three years–make the request of the video that your client says proves his innocence? This kind of disregard and pathetic lack of integrity is one of the main reasons why innocent people are sent to prison and death row.
But, in the eyes of the Wrongful Conviction Project, it’s cool that I’ve been in here almost 30 fucking years! It’s cool that I’m in here getting assaulted by lying-ass officers, which, in turn, creates more ammunition for the Board to use against me–that is, to help them further fortify their system of corruption and retaliate against me for exposing Board member MARC HOUK, who was CAUGHT FILING FALSE CRIMINAL CHARGES AGAINST ME IN 2006, WHEN HE WAS THE WARDEN AT THE OHIO STATE PENITENTIARY IN YOUNGSTOWN (Just watch the INVISIBLE CHESS documentary, and review Ohio State Highway Patrolmen David H. Simpson’s investigation report, #06-000028-0400)!
But, not to get too far off subject, tell me how can any so-called advocate of justice ignore a film that exposes injustice like this? THOUSANDS of prisoners are being tortured by the corrupt practices of Board members like MARC HOUK. If this isn’t worthy of being addressed by so-called advocates for justice, then they need to go ahead and find something else to pretend to be passionate about. Maybe then we will be able to attain some semblance of real justice, instead of this false hope that these justice-charlatans are selling.
I know I’m going to probably be attacked by Ohio’s “justice impostors,” but I don’t even care because they can’t make my situation any worse. Plus, they all know that I’M TELLING THE TRUTH! They have to look themselves in the mirror everyday and tell lies. They have to acknowledge that they are the FRAUDS who profit off of the modern-day enslavement of people of color.
I’m going to conclude for now. But,stay tuned,because justice and accountability is coming for the crooked individuals who are responsible for the injustice of Jason Goudlock and other old-law prisoners! I am not a slave,and ODRC AND THE OHIO PAROLE BOARD DO NOT OWN ME!
Due to the assistance of publicist LaTanya O’Kelly, my social media presence is gaining some traction.
Please aid this progress by sharing and posting INVISIBLE CHESS, and by asking Ohio media and elected officials to investigate the blatant continued corruption of the Board.
