The Framing of Kevin Cooper, on San Quentin’s Death Row [with VIDEO]

The Framing of Kevin Cooper, on San Quentin’s Death Row -- An interview with J. Patrick O’Connor
By Hans Bennett, Prison Radio

On February 20, San Quentin Prison (just North of San Francisco) was the site of a groundbreaking "Occupy San Quentin" demonstration linking Occupy Wall Street with the anti-prison movement. Inside on San Quentin’s death row is a man named Kevin Cooper, whose case for innocence is widely considered to be one of the most compelling today. Indeed, when the Ninth Circuit Court ruled against Cooper’s final appeal in 2009, Judge William A. Fletcher wrote in his 101 page dissenting opinion that “the State of California may be about to execute an innocent man.”

Kevin Cooper’s controversial 1985 conviction and death sentence is the subject of a new book by veteran journalist J. Patrick O’Connor entitled, Scapegoat: The Chino Hills Murders and The Framing of Kevin Cooper. O’Connor is the editor of www.crimemagazine.com and the author of The Framing of Mumia Abu-Jamal (Lawrence Hill, 2008). He has previously worked as a reporter for UPI, editor of Cincinnati Magazine, associate editor of TV Guide, and editor and publisher of the Kansas City New Times.

THE PRISON, by Mumia Abu-Jamal 12-17-11 [audio and update included]

 The Prison
[col. writ. 12/17/11] (c) '11 Mumia Abu-Jamal
 
Every prison is the same; and every prison is different.
Every prison has its own mythos, (think Alcatraz, Sing Sing, Attica), its own rhythm. hard, cool, tight, relaxed, severe or super max. And every prison is run by class -as in how courts or administrators have classified a crime according to whose interests are threatened.
