Jaylen Barker, an African American, is serving a life sentence at Rankin County Central Mississippi Corrections facility for the murder of Joseph Tillman. The crime, which has gotten international attention, occurred on November 6th, 2016. On the outside this case seems to be no more than a simple night out that ended in murder; on the inside it looks like a mosaic of mistruths, civil rights violations, political conspiracies, omissions of evidence, and even some pitiful admissions of mistakes by one judge.

Malaika Canada is in possession of her son’s entire legal file (from arrest to confinement), which is pelted with unconsidered evidence and information that directly refuted the credibility of the judicial system, the prosecutor, and the judge.

Malaika is not alone. She stands with seven other parents who share the same story, some with the same attorney, plea, prosecutor, and judge. Oddly, Malaika’s seventy-five year old mother, who was arrested for contempt, and then released, Sarah Smith, is a local bail bondsman, former newspaper owner, and friend of the prosecutor and judge. She is no stranger to any of the parties on this case. In fact, everyone has fellowshipped together in her home.
