April Griffin's story is one of the many injustices that good people, citizens who are not guilty of anything but standing on the principles of what they know to be right, endure in this so called justice system. Generally they have no prior record with authorities, they are known as good citizens. Why is this allowed to continue to happen, over and over again? Historically, this is what Black people in particular face in this country on a daily basis, especially when they are poor. We must raise our voices, demand justice and stay the course until it is done.
To date, April is still in jail, facing a 12 year sentence for trying to protect her child from a violent father who threatened to SEND the child out of the country.
April will appear in court In Milwaukee, Wisconsin on May 5, 2009 at 8:30 a.m.
