Well, they both hold a disdain for the law…
Incidentally, the prisoner in question is serving time for extortion and making threats, which is similar to how Obamacare got passed.
An obscure federal prison inmate gave President Obama an unexpected run for his money in the West Virginia Democratic Primary Tuesday, highlighting the deep dislike for the president in the Appalachian heartland.
With 96% of the precincts reporting Tuesday night, Keith Judd was holding steady at 41% of the vote and had won ten counties.
Judd is alsoknown as federal prison inmate Number 11593-051 at the Beaumont Federal Correctional Institution in Beaumont, Texas, where Judd is serving a 210-month sentence for extortion and making threats at the University of New Mexico in 1999.
According to both state and national Democratic Party rules, Keith Russell Judd is entitled to receive at least one delegate from West Virginia for the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. because he received 15% of the vote.
This guy must have been confused. Democrats want convicted felons to vote for Obama. Twice if possible. Not run against him.
The Radical Caucus of Occupy Albany and the New York State Prisoner Justice Network will be demonstrating in solidarity with political prisoner Jalil Muntaqim, currently sentenced to six months in the SHU (Segregated Housing Unit) at Attica Prison. We will use the People’s Mic for a call and response of our demands to an end of mass incarceration, over-sentencing to the SHU, and specifically to bring attention to Jalil’s case.
Mr. Bloomberg, responding to a request by Diane Piagentini, Officer Piagentini’s widow, wrote, ”Anthony Bottom’s crime is unforgivable, and its consequences will remain forever” with the families of the police officers, ”as well as the men and women of the New York City Police Department.”
”Because he so callously stole these officers’ lives,” the mayor added, ”Bottom should serve the maximum sentence without parole.”
In a book on ‘imprisoned intellectuals’, Muntaqim is described as follows:
While a member of the Black Panther Party, Muntaqim held beliefs which paralleled those of the underground faction, as opposed to the mainstream party, which focused on organizing, communicating with nationwide affiliates and other revolutionary groups to form positive political and social relations. In contrast, the underground party was focused on radical means of obtaining equality. Its members served as experts in military strategy and were “the essential armed wing of the above-ground political apparatus.”
Gilbert is currently serving time, like Jalil Muntaqim, in the Auburn Correctional Facility and is described as “an American radical leftist organizer and activist.” He was imprisoned for his role in the Brinks Robbery of 1981, a botched effort that led to the murder of four people, including a security guard and two police officers.
How Occupy of them.
Occupy, this is who your leaders are siding with. This is who they wish to be associated with. This is who they are supporting, who they fight for, who they emulate.
Whatever our differences Occupy, it’s time you took your movement back from these radicals. Before it’s too late.
