Ten years ago, I joined FB at the advice of a young friend. My objective wasn't to socialize but, to publicize and gain support for The Scott Sisters, who were wrongfully convicted with double life sentences each, in the State of Mississippi.
I learned of their case while working & attending graduate school in Chicago.
Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr., had a letter delivered to me from the sisters' mother, Mrs. Evelyn Rasco.
From there, I conducted a few years of research and investigations, and then presented the case on various social media sites such as Ning, Blog Talk Radio, Twitter and Listserves.
A large group of Atheists were the very first supporters and they wanted to remain in the background/publicly silent. A Harvard physicist was the next supporter.
Raphael Louis/Canada, gave us the first introduction to Blog Talk Radio. Bringing the case to Facebook yielded thousands of supporters from around the globe.
As a result, I've presented many additional cases to free wrongfully convicted inmates, and solve numerous cases of injustices by incorporating my knowledge of governmental compliance and criminal law to place public pressure on various local, state and federal agencies.
The case most dear to me is that of Imam Jamil Al-Amin whom I know best as H Rap Brown - A few of us nick named him THE RAP in college. My knowledge and skills along with public pressure, had him moved out of Supermax in Florence, Colorado.
Those who have benefitted are to numerous to mention but, I am most proud of Marissa Alexander's success. I no longer work with wrongfully convicted inmates and made the decision to take other avenues in life.
I would like to thank the many thousands, of supporters gained globally throughout the years and I know that Mrs. Rasco thanks you from the spiritual realm. Peace, Love and Light ~~Nancy Lockhart MJ
