Acknowledging Herman Wallace

Andrew Cohen wrote about Herman Wallace in The Atlantic.

The Times Picayune has a piece on Mr. Wallace today too.

I am ashamed to stand idly while flagrant injustice flourishes.

From the Center for Constitutional Rights-

Herman Wallace died today, less than a week after his conviction was overturned. He spent the last four decades in solitary confinement at Louisiana’s Angola prison, fighting to prove his innocence, fighting against a barbaric criminal justice system, fighting to end the torture that is prolonged solitary confinement. Words can’t describe the injustice of this case, the horror of decades of isolation, the courage that kept Herman Wallace fighting till the end… Wherever you are, get involved, be the generation that ends solitary confinement in America.
