Editor's Note: This is an example of the culture of violence and injustice within the deformed justice system that pervades our society. This is truly making a mountain out of a molehill, truly the evil of mendacity sucking at our bone marrows. For KPFA to be a party to this is a huge black mark on them. All this over a phone call?

She is also fighting misdemeaner charges. Nadra Foster begins her trial on Feb.5 in Oakland and she needs our support.
