  • Leonard Peltier Parole Hearing

    Lewisburg, P.A. July 28, 2009. Quick paraphrase by Toolbox.

    Today was the first time in 16 years that Leonard Peltier has had a full parole hearing, the last being in 1993. According to sources the hearing lasted about 6 hours, and drew around 200 people to the Lewisburg Federal Prison in Lewisburg P.A. According to a radio broadcast they said that the parole was heard by a parole officer who now has 48 hours to make a recommendation the full parole board, which then has in turn up to 21 days to reach a conclusion.

    If he gets parole I might actually gain some respect for our incarceration system in this country.

      It seems that all the 'what are you reading now' threads have died and I decided to make my own thread for books.

      Post what you're currently reading, ask for recommendations or give recommendations, post what books you got most recently and anything else book related.
