Glenn Ford Lost 30 Years Of His Life
This is what happens when you seek revenge instead of justice. And no matter HOW wounded the family of the victim is, it should be clear they are seeking revenge just as much as justice. That's simply human. But when one of the suspects is black, that revenge, anger, and fear of everyone involved - not JUST the family- seems to seek dark skin like a heat seeking missile.
This is what happens when white supremacy runs around free, unrecognized for what it is.
"The death sentence had illustrated that our community would brook no tolerance for cold-blooded killers. The Old Testament admonishment, an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth, was alive and well in Caddo Parish. I even received a congratulatory note from one of the state's witnesses, concluding with the question, "how does it feel to be wearing a black glove?"
Members of the victim's family profusely thanked the prosecutors and investigators for our efforts. They had received some closure, or so everyone thought. However, due to the hard work and dedication of lawyers working with the Capital Post-Conviction Project of Louisiana, along with the efforts of the Caddo Parish district attorney's and sheriff's offices, the truth was uncovered.
Glenn Ford was an innocent man. He was released from the hell hole he had endured for the last three decades."
