Pack the Courthouse!

From Facebook, by Carrington Keys' mother:
My son Carrington Keys asked me to let everyone know he appreciates their efforts throughout the years and to thank everyone for their support. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers as he goes before the court this coming week. He has the opportunity to bring before the court what so many of our loved ones have been enduring in the PA DOC. The racism, torture, abuse and outright violation of every human right you can think of.

He was kept in solitary confinement for many years and never let out simply because he refused to discontinue filing lawsuits and taking a stand against racism and unethical behavior. He has endured these abuses not for doing the wrong thing while incarcerated but for doing the right thing! That is being a young black man who has helped people of any race to overcome these circumstances. He has much compassion and in his heart even though he feared for his own life at time. No one deserves to be beat, tortured or starved and thrown into the dungeon for years. No one!

Well, On January 7th, my son will have his day in court and I could not be more proud. He has truly been blessed with a gift to articulate the law. He has endured something that many people would not last one week in. Surely, God is his protector and shield. I am asking all I know to pray, meditate, fast or whatever you do, on his behalf. Victory is his! 

For those who don’t know this is also a part of another struggle. Carrington was involved in a peaceful protest where he and 5 others were charged with riot after the guards beat them for covering their cell windows. They are known as the Dallas 6 and this is the blog related to their case.
