MAN WRONGLY CONVICTED WHEN $13 MILLION DOLLAR SETTLEMENT

By: Leon Kwasi Kuntuo-Asare

An African-American man, who went to prison for six years was awarded $13 million dollars in a settlement , which was agreed upon by the San Francisco board of supervisors .

According to NPR, Jamal Trulove, who is also an actor, was reportedly set up and served prison time for a 2007 murder he did not commit. His 2015 retrial proved his innocence, and he was acquitted for the crime.

In 2007, Trulove sued the SFPD, after he was arrested and sent to prison for the murder of his friend Seu Kuka.

A jury would later determine that San Francisco police officers Maureen Dโ€™Amico and Michael Johnson lied and falsified evidence in the case, and even coerced a witness to lie and claim that Trulove was the shooter.

If the case was not overturned, Trulove could of spent the rest of his life behind bar.

On Tuesday, the city of San Francisco became the first so-called “Sanctuary City”, to sue the Trump Administration, after his executive order to defund cities that he claims protects illegal immigrants.

Ed Lee, the mayor of San Francisco, said : ” the misguided executive order makes our cities less safe, and we believe is unconstitutional.”

Mayors from other major cities like New York and Chicago, promised to defy the president’s executive order, the ACLU, also plans to file a lawsuit against Trump’s administration.

2016 SAN FRANCISCO GAZA 5K (TO END PTSD) 10-15-2016 (A POEM)

A rainbow of humanity came together

On this damp and foggy day

With some chance of rain

To raise money to try to quell the children of Palestine mental pain

As a result of Israel’s bombs falling from the blue sky

Like droplets of rain

We’re running this one race

For one race

The human race!
