Maria McDonald, from the world of fashion and film, found a friend from the entertainment industry had been lingering in legal limbo and was stunned to discover he would have been home by now if not for an extreme tilt in justice known as federal mandatory minimum sentencing.
This appalling injustice has lead to the formation of the website, INPRISON.net Dedicated to the Resurrection and Reaffirmation of the Fifth and Sixth Amendments in the jury trial system.
Russell Simmons and others demonstrated concerns on a state level as seen on YouTube's "Lockdown".
As a result Maria has become soberly aware of the need for immediate "Change" and is asking, "When does PUNISHMENT become ABUSE, When does ABUSE become REVENGE, When does REVENGE become INHUMANE?"
