Herman Wallace, a former Black Panther, has been in solitary confinement for over thirty years in Louisiana.
A state court official has just recommended his murder conviction be reversed because the prosecution did not tell the defense that the “star” witness, also an inmate, received special treatment that was in effect a payoff for testifying against Wallace.
What kind of sick society puts someone in solitary for thirty years? Hey, no matter who you are and what you’ve done, thirty years in solitary is torture. Period.
