« The first part of the prisons likely to be hit will be the kitchens, where stoves will remain unlit, ready-meals unheated and thousands of breakfasts uncooked.
From there the impact will fan out. The laundry will be left unwashed, prison corridors un-mopped, and the lawns on the external grounds ring-fenced with barbed wire will go uncut.
On Tuesday, America’s vast army of incarcerated men and women – at 2.3mof them they form by far the largest imprisoned population in the world – will brace itself for what has the potential to be the largest prison strike in US history. »
There is a new documentary series on Netflix called “I am a killer”, one of the episodes is about Kenneth, it is called “Killer in the eyes of the law”.
Documentary about Kenneth
Director Scott Calonico made a documentary short , Lone Star Statement, about the night before Kenneth Foster’s slated execution. The short will be shown at the International Film Festival this month ( 8/17 October 2015) in Italy. Watch and share the video and please show some love to Scott on his Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/scott.calonico?fref=ts) for creating this documentary.
Director, Scott Calonico quote for Kenneth’s friends and supporters:
« I stumbled across an audio recording of Kenneth reading this poem while doing research for another project and was immediately moved by it. A reporter friend of mine had originally written about Kenneth over 10 years ago and re-reading her stories and discovering that Kenneth was still in jail – not to mention barely escaping execution – was outrageous to me. Kenneth has long ago admitted that he made some errors in judgement when he was younger. He’s served enough time behind bars. Especially now when corporate criminals can cause so much economic damage to families and communities and walk away totally free. »
Thank you, Scott!
