Albert Woodfox is part of the Angola 3, three Black Panthers, put in solitary confinement for decades in Angola Prison,Louisiana after being framed for the death of a prison guard. Robert Hillary King has been released. Herman Wallace was released October 1, 2013, re-indicted on October 3, 2013,[6] and died on October 4, 2013 before he could be re-arrested.

On June 8, 2015 a federal judge granted Louisiana prisoner Albert Woodfox unconditional release. Albert’s conviction had already been overturned three times – most recently in 2013 – yet every time the state has appealed.

Though it means some months before Albert will see his long overdue freedom realized, the court has granted an “expedited” status for the appeal. Oral Arguments are set for the week of August 31st. The State’s written argument as to why they believe Judge Brady’s order should be overturned is due on July 10th. Then Albert’s team has three weeks to respond before the State is allowed a final rebuttal on August 7th.

Despite the overwhelming calls for Albert’s freedom from the people, congressmen, NGO’s like Amnesty International, and 3 legal rulings overturning his original conviction, the State continues their cruel campaign of vengeance against Albert. Enough is Enough. Once again we see that, as Robert King says, “Legality and Morality do not shake hands in the court room”
