WE DONE TALKIN 'BOUT FREEING LEON BENSON
"If you know, in this courtroom, they have freedom & equality every day & i knock on the door. Every day theyopen the door to let me see other peoples'cases that are like mine receive justice, let me see that they are throwin' out convictions, throwin' appeal victories around...but tellin' me there's no justice & exoneration for me. Every day my people are standing outside trying to sing their way in:"We are for peace & justice, please let us in." After about a week the song is gonna change to,"We're getting frustrated, we need justice too bigots!" After two weeks its like,"Give us freedom & justice for our loved ones or we gonna break down the doors!" After years its like," We pickin' the locks, takin' justiceby hook or crook, comin' through the doors blastin' like Johnathan Jackson!"
PERSPECTIVE: We asked 50 years ago with the Black Panthers & civil rights movement. We asked 30 years ago to stop throwing all our people in prison due erroneous drug sentencing guide lines. We asked 13 years ago to free my brother, Leon Benson & others from wrongful imprisonment.
Now, no more asking & demanding whats owed to us. We are commanding movements & taking back whats ours: "Freedom!" Stop the games. If youre not ready to act stay out of our way or get rolled over. Leon has been telling us what time it was about his freedom for years now, listen: www.youtube.com/leebently !!
If you feel the same way fight beside us: FREE LEON BENSON!
