In the last six months numerous 'campers' at the federal prison camp in Florence, Colorado have experienced the death of immediate family members, including sisters, sons, daughters, fathers and mothers but the Warden has repeatedly denied furlough requests by inmates to grieve and bury their loved ones.

Alleging Religious Bias by Federal Judge & Prosecutor, Church Asks 10th Circuit to Unseal Records

LogoAfter serving 3 years of an 11-year prison sentence, convicted felon Gary Walker decided he'd had enough of the prison life and filed a motion and affidavit requesting release on the basis that he was not responsible for his actions because he was under a religious spell of his mother-in-law pastor, Rose M. Banks of the Colorado Springs Fellowship Church (CSFC).

Advocacy Organization Praises Trump's Independent Clemency Evaluation Process

Trump Pardon Sought After White House Email Suggests Obama Disregarded Complaint of DOJ Misconduct by Federal Appeals Judge

LogoIt seems unlikely that President Barack Obama would ignore a personal letter emailed to him from prominent former federal appeals judge H. Lee Sarokin asking him to grant clemency to African-American technology executives (the "IRP6") because DOJ prosecutors and a federal judge engaged in misconduct to obtain an unconstitutional conviction. A former federal judge sending a letter to a sitting U.S. President on behalf of criminal defendants he hasn't met is unprecedented and is not something that happens every day. In fact, it's probably never happened in U.S. history which means Judge Sarokin wouldn't risk his reputation to expose the misconduct if he didn't have proof it occurred. Some of the many congressmen who have reviewed the credible evidence of prosecutorial and judicial misconduct told advocacy organization A Just Cause that Obama couldn't have possibly known, but the fact is, Special Assistant to President Obama and Associate Counsel Joshua Friedman confirmed in a November 11, 2015 email he received Sarokin's letter and forwarded the letter to the DOJ Pardon Attorney (See email at bit.ly/2LoQNxv).
