      Plan Of Action:
      Raise the People's awareness to this tragic miscarriage of justice, support Sister Jamie and Gladys Scott, by writing them and supporting them financially

      Purpose Of Action:
      To agitate to a level where these Sisters receive a new trial and are released unconditionally.

      In the State of Mississippi (USA) - On December 24, 1993, Scott County Sheriff's Department arrested two sisters, Jamie and Gladys Scott for armed robbery, and In October of 1994, Jamie and Gladys Scott were each sentenced to double life terms in prison. Neither sister had prior convictions, nor arrests, nor criminal history. Three young black male confessed to the robbery, implicated and linked Jamie and Gladys into the crime; and these men also received a light sentence of 10 months in exchange of a plea bargain. Allegedly; between $9-$11, were stolen; subsequently no one was injured or murdered.

      We are urging everyone to support this Petition and assist our efforts in obtaining Freedom for these innocent Ladies.

      My name is Jamie Scott and I have asked that this is posted on the different web sites that have been created for my sister and me. I do understand there are many people out there that don’t understand a lot about prison and what someone goes through in a situation such as this. Please don’t get me wrong; IF you commit a crime, then you should be punished.

      In the state of Mississippi, the crime chart is just crazy. I have met so many women here that their husbands were beating the living mess out of them and these ladies have legal action against their husbands, but as soon as she tries to stop him from killing her and she takes his life, she comes to prison. But keep in mind; they still do not receive two life sentences. Men are here for brutal raping of children and women, but yet they don’t have double life.

      When I entered prison at the tender age of 22, I felt like my world was coming apart and life was not worth living. There were no more secrets and I had to strip naked in front of everyone, including men, because they thought it was funny. I was made to spread my buttocks and the officer looked. If I had a gun, I would have ended my life right then. I was placed in a 12x12 cell to be under observation because of the amount of time I had to serve. They feel, if you have a long sentence, then you may try to kill yourself. I cried day in and day out asking the question so many ask, “Why God, why did you allow this unjust thing to happen?” I could not understand how this loving God that my Big Mom had told me about as a child could allow those sworn in to serve and protect to come in and completely lie. I was let out of solitary in April 1995 and went to a unit filled with 100 females.

      One bad part about this entire situation is the women I have encountered. I met this woman who told me she was driving down the highway and her baby would not stop crying so, she stopped and threw her child over the bridge. Guess what, she left me here. She has gone home. So many have killed their own children, but none have received the amount of time my sister and I have received. I truly believe that I would have come out better IF I had committed a crime of murder. I have never been one to judge someone and that is why so many come to me and share their thoughts. I must admit sometimes, I get so angry when it involves a child. I get angry with the Mississippi judicial system because here my sister and I sit with double life and this person took an innocent child’s life.

      In the midst of all the hurt I have endured, nothing could prepare me for the times I went on funeral detail. My sister and I had to go to the funerals of our grandfather, grandmother, father and sister, who died on my birthday, shackled like dogs. When I think of the word “strongest,” I think of my mother. She is 4 feet 9 inches tall and has the strength of Job in the Bible. There were six of us children, now there are five. None of us has ever seen an angry day from her. My mother would make sure we always had and never had to go egging. I know it is only God keeping her alive. It breaks my heart when I call her and she tells me she has no money for gas. She had to bury her long time friend and soul mate of 30 years, and then she buried her oldest daughter... Yet, at times, Gladys and I feel dead to her because we are not there.

      Some might say we only care about money. Let me set those who think that straight. I don’t give a damn about money. I would sign anything say I would not sue or discuss this case with anyone to gain my freedom and be with my family. Will money bring back 14 years of heartache and pain? Will money bring back all of my dead family members?

      Never speak to me about gaining money from all the hurt and pain we have had to endure here.

      One thing I do not have is hate in my heart concerning anyone who played a roll in Gladys and me being here. After reading our transcript over and over, I have come to realize that the Patrick men were really trying to help us but to also save themselves during trial. That is why they said they never wrote the statements and that the statements were written out for them. They were trying to tell the jury that these statements were written out before we were arrested. Then, they tried to tell them how they were threatened, but it did not work. I am not bitter or angry with them. If I were to see them now, I would hug them and tell them I love them. They were just young victims as well. They got played by the system, just as we did.

      For all that don’t know, slavery in Mississippi has changed names. It is still very much active and alive in Mississippi. Its new name is called the LAW! So, if there is anyone out there that thinks this cannot happen to their child or family, think about Gladys and Jamie Scott. We were not criminals nor were we drug addicts. I worked everyday. I have a right to be bitter, angry, mad as hell at the United States of America, but I choose not to because I know a higher power and Gladys and I WILL walk the streets again.

      Gladys and I have completed the following classes while incarcerated: Active Parenting, Parent Education, The Mississippi Life Skills Project, Computer Literacy and numerous Bible study classes. I earned by GED and Gladys is still working on hers. I was a tutor helping the other offenders in Literacy class to learn how to read and write. Since 2004, Gladys and I have been tour speakers and guides for the Central Mississippi Correctional Facility (CMCF) tours. On the tour, different churches and schools come and bring their troubled teens and we talk with them and tell them what goes on in prison. I do that because I truly believe if I can help just one teenager from coming through here, someone would help my children. Gladys has been trough Adult and Adolescents, Survivors of Abuse, Inc., Conquering Chemical Dependency and numerous other classes. We both have gained all these certificates and are still working on more at this moment. There are many days that I have had to go to the kitchen here and bit into a bug or roach. There are many days when I have had to use the bathroom on myself because some silly guard told me to stay on my rack and would not let me go to the bathroom, or I had to use a drink bottle to urinate in. There are many days I wanted to save up my diabetic medication and take them all and just sleep and never wake up. People cannot understand my praise today. They see me wake up smiling each day and think it has bee a walk in the park. If only they knew the reason behind my praise. I have a right to praise God, and for those that say it is jailhouse religion, well it worked for me. If it were not for those twins called Grace and Mercy, I, Jamie Scott would not be here today. I am wiser and I am stronger this day. I knew one day God would send an angel to help my sister and me. Thank you for your time.

      I give special thanks to Sister. She is not receiving one dime for this. She has read and investigated and found everything we have shared with her to be truthful. Everything Sister does for us comes out of her pocket because my mother has no money. I know it is not easy on Sister because she is not rich, but yet she is working for freedom on our behalf. I pray she will be blessed beyond her imagination. Thank you so much for your time in this. If you have any questions for my sister or me, you can write us at the addresses below.

      Prison is difficult at best. I personally did 24 yrs and 11 months, so I can readily relate to what these sisters are going through. For me, it was a constant and on-going "War of Wills for moral supremacy." My advice to these sisters is to not lose sight of who you are, and to not allow your oppressors any moral victory,i.e., to not allow them to take any "moral high ground." They are expert at assassinating one's character.

      And no matter what game they play
      We got something they could never take away
      And it's the fire (fire), it's the fire (fire)
      That's burning down everything
      Feel that fire (fire), the fire (fire)
      No water could put out this fire (fire)

      Please visit FREE JAMIE AND GLADYS SCOTT !

      The wrongful convictions of Gladys and Jamie Scott is an incredibly atrocious case of over-sentencing (at the very least!). Please do not be silent, these women have been in prison for 14 long years and are crying out for help with publicity, Paypal donations (they've only ever received $5.00!), and anything, large or small, that you can do to support! Newspapers, columns, websites, please feature this case!! i listened to a radio program hosted by Sis. Sankofa Uhuru of Black Unity last evening featuring Nancy Lockhart and the mother of the Scott girls last evening, and it was one of the most heartbreaking things i have ever listened to, this is Mississippi injustice at its finest! Please help to publicize this case, this is really very badly needed, send it out on your e-mail lists, post it on your websites, do interviews and write columns, we must demand justice!
      ==============

      The Wrongful Conviction
      By: Jamie Scott

      Fourteen years ago in a small town, Forest, MS, two young Black women, who are sisters, were given a double life sentence. This sentence was for a crime, in which they did not commit. The alleged crime was Armed Robbery of two Black men. No one was killed or harmed during this alleged robbery.

      Three young Black men confessed to the robbery. They also implicated that Gladys and me, Jamie Scott, were involved and participated in this crime. On December 24, 1993, Scott county Sheriff’s Department arrested Gladys and me for armed robbery. This was the beginning of a real life nightmare for everyone in our family: our parents, our children, and especially us.

      Our trial began on October 4, 1994. Gladys, nineteen, and I, Jamie, were twenty-two years old. The three young men called the “Patrick Men” because they were related. Through coercions, threats and promises they chose to turn states evidence against Gladys and me. These men were promised a lenient sentence, in return for their testimonies.

      During our trial, the tale began to unravel. One of the Patrick men testified he didn’t write the statement used as evidence against Gladys and me. He testified that the police coerced and threatened him with a long sentence at Parchman State Prison, if he didn’t sign the written statement. The Scott county Police used fear, threats, and intimidation against the Patrick Men to sign a statement against us.

      This man testified regarding the coerced statement on the witness stand; however, the jury found Gladys and me guilty. We received a double life sentence.

      Prior to our trial, the two victims who had been robbed went to our parents with a bribe. They requested a large sum of money in exchange for there disappearance and unavailability to testify against us. However, our attorney advised our parents to cease all communications with the victims.

      We contend our innocence. Our parents believe in our innocence and the Patrick Men know we are innocent.

      In 1998, one of the Patrick Men wrote a sworn affidavit clearing Gladys and me. But, the courts never heard the affidavit. The most devastating and unfair thing about this is the police and investigators know we are innocent.

      What began as an implication and outright miscarriage of justice, has catapulted to destroyed an entire family. These accusations and subsequent convictions have totally destroyed mine and Gladys’ life. Causing a chain reaction which has led, Gladys, a nineteen year old, mother of a seven year old daughter and pregnant with another child, myself, Jamie, a twenty-two year old mother of three children; seven, three and one years of age, during the time of our arrest, conviction and sentencing for a crime we did not commit. Before being eligible for parole, we will have to serve a total of twenty years. We have exhausted all of our appeals in our fight for freedom. We now realize we are unable to receive justice within the Mississippi Judicial System. Our hopes and dreams of freedom lie with the American people. Who can become our voice and assist us with our plight for freedom. By voicing their opinions, speaking our against this atrocious miscarriage of justice, and a court system that has denied us our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

      We are compelled to plead and ask for a public outcry. Attention needs to be given to public officials and a county that refuses to let justice be served.

      Our situation is complex, multidimensional, and heart-wrenching. We will never cease speaking out against the disservice done to us. However, we have discovered our voice carries very little weight, especially now, we are convicted as violent offenders serving a double life sentence.

      Horror, frustration and humiliation of being subjected to life in prison for a crime, we did not commit, has made both of us feel hopeless and helpless at certain times; but we will continue to fight for our lives. This is a story that could happen to anyone.

      My mother, Evelyn Rasco, decided to leave the state of Mississippi due to this “miscarriage of justice” inflicted upon Gladys and me. There is a great deal more to our story than what we are revealing presently. Events which have happened to us during fight for freedom.

      Hopefully, someone will find this story worthy enough to be exposed and to show what has happened in a small town in Mississippi, during this time in America. Someone may decide to come forward and speak out against what has happened to my sister and me. We pray this will happen.

      This is not a movie, it is a real-life situation, this happened to real people. An untruth has taken away our lives. A life that included our parents and children (now grandchildren). Unless someone decides to take a stand against the county, it’s officials and not allow intimidation and fear to discourage them from helping us with our fight for freedom; our children will be adults before we are free citizens.

      The injustices that have occurred are pattern within this county and their police departments. This type of injustice and exploitation has been done to many African-Americans who have lived in this county for many years. They have been very successful in destroying many lives. This should not be happening in America today. This is a time we show Americans what really occurs in most small towns in the state of Mississippi. We are convinced that once this chain of events is exposed and unraveled, the events that occurred, the lives that have been destroyed, the pain and suffering the citizens of Scott County have endured; everyone will be utterly amazed, astonished and compelled to assist us in our plight for freedom. We pray, the people would insist upon an investigation into their misconduct and miscarriage of justice.

      The officials in this community should be exposed and reprimanded for all they have done and continue to do to others and us. Once this has occurred, and revealed; perhaps, it will bring an end to this horrific story we have endured and experienced for the past fourteen years.

      We need someone willing to take a stand for our families, to be our voice and us. Also, to assist, guide and lead our mother, because she is fearful. Our mother and children need us. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

      May God Bless You,

      Jamie Scott

      (Willie Scott Jr., the oldest brother of Jamie and Gladys Scott, is risking his life in Iraq, for a country that took the lives of his sisters by locking them in prison for a crime they did not commit).

      NOTE:

      I was introduced to this case while a Master of Jurisprudence student at Loyola University Chicago School of Law. I supported myself as a community services consultant for RainbowPUSH Coalition and received a letter from Mrs. Rasco seeking help for her daughters. Mrs. Rasco stated that she had been writing for 11 years, I was compelled to respond.

      The months after would yield in depth research, as I needed to ensure the validity of this case. After completing the M.J. I left Chicago with a commitment to continue the quest of seeking justice for The Scott Sisters. It is still hard to believe that this is a crime in which transcripts state that 9,10 or 11 dollars was stolen. No one was murdered or taken to the hospital

      His post has been moved up in here, it was first posted in Sundiata's action action alert, sorry for the confusion. Anyway, it's not important at all.

      This is more than injustice the two sisters have been victim of. This is tyranny.
      What is the amerikkkan shitsem excuse for keeping them locked up while the guilty ones have confessed their crimes?
      I'll write to the sisters to show my support & spread the word the best I can.

      We are calling for everyone reading this e-mail to take a moment and send a letter to Oprah Winfrey on behalf of the Scott Sisters. Why? Because we are pulling out all of the stops in our attempts to bring this incredible case of extreme Mississippi injustice to the attention of the nation and world, it is just that compelling! Please read on and we are certain that you will agree that taking a moment to make contact is at least worth the effort!

      Dear Ms. Winfrey,

      I am heartbroken. As you are aware, I am sure, African American women are filling up prisons at an alarming
      rate. The last 20 years of the “drug war” have caused a tremendous rise in the numbers of incarcerated Black
      women. Figures supplied by the United States Department of Justice show that Black women are being
      imprisoned at nearly double the rate of men.

      Thirty-three percent of women prisoners are Black and 16 percent are Hispanic, according to experts at The
      Sentencing Project.

      Injustice for African American people is at an all time high and at every turn there are cases upon cases of
      people who are wrongfully incarcerated, unjustly sentenced and the most severe inhumanity imaginable: under
      double lockdown (solitary confinement) for long periods of time.

      This being said, I am writing to you on behalf of Jamie and Gladys Scott. Their mother and
      advocate Nancy Lockhart were recently guests on BlogTalkRadio.com
      (Culture internet radio shows and African internet radio by Queen Ifama - The Truth Terrorist | BlogTalkRadio ) and it brought tears to my eyes. Their mother contacted you a
      while ago and now I also would like to add my voice to hers. Being an avid fan of yours for years and knowing
      what you have featured on your show in the way of addressing injustice, I feel it imperative that you please
      take a look at the case of the Scott Sisters. At the time, these young women were 22 and 19 years old with five
      children between them. They have been incarcerated for 14 years. Fourteen years away from their children,
      fourteen years away from their parents and family. It has been devastating to this family. The only hope they
      have is our voices.

      In 1994, Jamie and Gladys Scott were wrongfully convicted in the state of Mississippi. A corrupt sheriff used
      coercion, threats, and harassment to convict the Scott Sisters of armed robbery. The case of the Scott sisters is
      an intriguing one, with transcripts stating that 11 dollars was stolen, at most. It's important to
      note that no one was murdered or injured, in the alleged robbery. One of the state's witnesses, a 14 year old,
      testified that he did not have an attorney present when signing a statement prepared by the sheriff! These facts
      seem to mean little, as Jamie and Gladys Scott have served 14 years of double-life sentences, thus far, for a
      robbery they did not commit. That's Double Life Each!

      The Scott sisters, with no prior convictions before their sentencing, now wallow in the belly of the Prison
      Industrial Complex. The emotional strain this burden has placed upon their family is immeasurable. Their
      children, grandchildren, and mother have been forced to wade in the waters of financial-hardship. Their father,
      though a strong man, passed away a few years back, following the illegal incarceration of his two beautiful
      daughters. Readers should be aware that Jamie and Gladys Scott's brother is currently fighting the war in Iraq,
      for a country which imprisons innocent people (like his sisters). Welcome to reality.

      Though imprisoned and physically-bound, both sisters have fought to keep their clarity and sanity in check.
      One of the ways this is achieved, is through personal diaries—accounts of the often-glamorized, but
      incomprehensibly horrific conditions of prison systems.

      I appreciate the time you will take to look into this. Regardless to whether we feel that they were innocent or
      guilty. The injustice is that the alleged crime does not warrant the amount of time that was given to these two
      young Black women. Please visit FREE JAMIE AND GLADYS SCOTT for any information at all that
      you will need regarding this case. At some point we MUST stand up for justice. This happens far too often and
      we have the POWER to do something about it.

      Sincerely

      (Your name and address)

      Thank you very much in advance for mailing a letter of your own, please become involved and let us know if you have done so!!
