The 8th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution supposedly outlaws Cruel and Unusual Punishment. Some of the 8th Amendment decisions the Supreme court has issued dealt with inordinately long sentences, sentences that are disparate with respect to length of sentence and the crime committed, and harsh treatment such as torture or in some cases, the death penalty, that are thought to be cruel and unusual. Members of the Medical Professionals for Mumia, including Mumia Abu Jamal's chosen physician Ricardo Alvarez, and James McIntosh, M.D., will review with attendees the medical neglect, mistreatment and outright torture and inordinately long sentences of U.S. Held Political Prisoners and compare these to the treatment of other prisoners and make the case that this treatment is in violation of the 8th amendment. Lawyers and activists including Veteran Movement Attorney Michael Warren, Forensic Psychiatrist and Surgeon Barbara Justice and MOVE Minister of Confrontation, Pam Africa will respond to the presentations. The Attorneys and Activists will respond to the presentations as to the potential of actually seeking relief under the 8th amendment. There will never be a better time since the current president of the U.S was put in office largely because of the votes of Black People in the state of Georgia, where Jamil Al Amin aka H. Rap Brown was living prior to arrest.
