Lucasville State of Mind
By Jason Goudlock,
May 12, 2008

It could have been me on April 11, 1193, caught in between explosive
unrest in an unjust penitentiary.

All-out anarchy against dehabilitating, inhumane prison practices, while some sat in silence and meditated on their mattresses.

Uncertainty and circumstances. I would have been at the total mercy of the former and the latter. Certainly, surviving would have been all that mattered.

Well, at least back then, prior to having my entire life shattered. Because now, I stand accused! As Isaac Hayes once beautifully crooned, listening to the echoes of injustice inside of an unethical courtroom.

Untruthful allegations, fabricated by ambitious felons! Shouldn't this have been proof that the system was failing? Shouldn't this have been proof of the lies that they were telling?

Imagine if I had to give my life to pose such questions. I wonder, would my wrongful execution be a topic during elections?

Save your answers, please, because right now I am very much alive. I was just thinking about the injustice incurred by the "Lucasville Five," as well as "Greg Curry," and all others whom were convicted because of lies. It's time to wake up America and grant justice where
it has been denied.
