There should be no talk of reparations in the United States unless it includes the ending of the historic and horrific crime against humanity: the death penalty.
Comrade Malik, currently in solitary confinement after being attacked at USP Beaumont, urgently needs to get out of there and into an institution in California. Prison officials need to know that many, many people are watching out for him and they can’t get away with any more dirty tricks.
