Leader's critique prompted an "Open Letter" from Philadelphia-convicted Wendell Caldwell who criticized Pennsylvania parole authorities for rejecting his parole requests nine times during his 25-year imprisonment reportedly telling Caldwell to finish his full 30-year sentence.
"I was told to max out for refusing to admit to a crime which I did not commit," Caldwell recounted in his "Open Letter" sent Leader.
"I have earned over 70 certificates for courses and programs"including college credits," Caldwell stated in that Letter. "I saved the life of a correctional officer during the worst prison riot in Pennsylvania history."
Edward Africa, a member of Philadelphia's MOVE organization serving 30-100-years for a suspect cop killing conviction, was recently denied parole again despite only having one prison infraction in 34-years -- refusing to cut his dreadlocks which he and other MOVE members initially declined as violating their religious beliefs.
"The bias is very obvious and they don't try to hide it, just as it is in the Pa courts. The law is ignored with MOVE people," Africa wrote in a recent letter to a reporter. "Others have the same charges or worse and get parole."
