Just 5 days before she was due to go on trial for aggravated kidnapping and first degree murder in the death of Judge Harold Haley extending from the Marin County courthouse incident, Angela Davis finally made it to freedom.

After 18 months in prison and seemingly endless petitions for bail in and out of state and federal courts, Davis was released on $102,500 bail.

Rodger McAfee, a dairy farmer from Caruthers, California, paid her bail with the help of Steve Sparacino, a wealthy business owner. Portions of her legal defense expenses were paid for by the Presbyterian Church (UPCUSA).

Davis’ experience as a prisoner in the US played a key role in her to fight against the “prison industrial complex” that she says exists in the US.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s
    both equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt,
    you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that not enough
    people are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very
    happy that I found this in my hunt for something regarding this.

    Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work
    due to no back up. Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?
