Political Prisoners in the U.S. Are No Better Off Than Anywhere Else

 

In the American justice system, even when a prisoner is not sentenced to be executed, the bureaucrats of the U.S. Justice Department's Federal Bureau of Prisons still have extra-judicial ways of making sure a politically-targeted prisoner will die in jail. 

 

This is a recent example, when Kathleen Kenney, general counsel for the Bureau of Prisons, informed the husband of a 73-year old woman who is dying of cancer that her request for "compassionate release" was denied because her "health is improving" she does not present circumstances considered extraordinary and compelling" at this time."

 

That is what Washington attorney Kenney wrote, without apparent irony, to Ralph Poynter, whose wife is incarcerated at the Carswell Federal Medical Center at the Naval Air Station in Fort Worth, Texas.  Kenney's letter countermanded the April 26 recommendation of the prison warden that Stewart be released. 

 

How Does A Washington Lawyer Practice Medicine in Texas?  Badly.
