Pamela Smart’s trial and conviction are one of the greatest miscarriages of justice in American Jurisprudence.
The actual killers, teenagers, who had criminal records and well known to the police, admitted their guilt. All received reduced sentences by blaming everything on Pamela Smart who wasn’t even there. She was 50 miles away at the time of the cold-blooded beating and murder of her husband, Gregg Smart.
The trial was presided over by a judge who hoped that Clint Eastwood would play him in the movie. Wanting to hold onto this highly publicized case which was the highlight of his career, the judge permitted live cameras in the courtroom to televise the proceedings gavel-to-gavel. He denied Pamela her most basic rights–refusing to change the venue to a less hostile community, delay the trial until passions cooled, restrain the media who were out of control, or sequester the jury. He permitted the murderers to be housed together, giving them ample time and opportunity to coordinate their stories and even watch each other testify in live time on televisions in the jail.
It was not the blind eye of justice that governed Pamela Smart’s trial. Rather, it was the blind eye of INJUSTICE that prevailed–overlooking the many flaws, inconsistencies and irregularities that went on routinely, day after day.
For 26 years, Pamela Smart has staunchly and consistently denied any role, directly or indirectly, in Gregg’s murder. She was convicted by the perjured testimony of self-confessed killers who are now walking around free while she serves a draconian sentence of Life Without the Possibility of Parole. This is the sentence that should have been theirs, not hers. Pamela’s release date is 99/99/9999.
While in prison she has suffered greatly–sexually assaulted by a guard and brutally beaten by fellow inmates. Yet she continues to contribute daily in work that enhances the quality of life and education for women who are incarcerated with her at Bedford Hills Correctional Facility in New York.
We, the supporters of Pamela Smart, implore you to look at the evidence and join us in helping to secure her freedom. Regardless of what you feel about her guilt or innocence, Pamela Smart has served more than half her life in prison. It is time for her sentence to be commuted to time served and allow her to go home to her family. For accurate information please go to http://pamelasmart.com

A Broken Justice System – Cases in Point – Part 2 – The Case of Courtney Bisbee
From time to time, I become aware of cases that are particularly good examples of the flaws, the problems, the shortcomings, the failures, and the actual injustices of our so-called justice system (that I have been writing about here for the last 3 1/2 years). This is Part 2 of what is intended to be a continuing series highlighting these cases. These cases have been selected as representative and demonstrative examples, but be aware they are just the “tip of the iceberg.” This kind of stuff is happening every day in every state. You can see Part 1 here.

“Take off your blinders,” speaker challenges
“I stand here before you as an angry black woman,” said Breea Willingham, in the William F. Walsh Science Center amphitheater of Saint Bonaventure University Friday.
“What’s happening today is not something that just happened,” said Willingham, referring to the August 2014 shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and to the deaths of other black people at the hands of law enforcement.
Scanning a room with no empty seats, with rows of people standing at the back or sitting on the floor, she stressed, “This is something that has been happening since African Americans first stepped foot on American soil.”
