      Brooke Reynolds

      Buffalo, NY

Anthony Bottom, aka Jalil Muntaqim, has been incarcerated since 1971 for his involvement with the Black Panther Party and Black Liberation Army. A victim of the FBI's illegal COINTELPROgram, he has been behind bars for 40 years and is currently 60 years old. Jalil maintains an exemplary prison record, and is the co-founder of the Jericho Amnesty Movement working to free all political prisoners and prisoners of war. Jalil--a great grandfather, brother, son, and friend--is nearing his 5th parole hearing this June.

      Anthony Bottom, aka Jalil Muntaqim, was/is a victim of the FBI's COINTELPROgram. In 1975, the Church Committee/ United States Senate Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities determined COINTELPRO to be illegal as it used tactics to target persons for political views that did not commit any crimes..Nonetheless, he has been lock down for 40 years. Why, it makes no sense whatsoever. He is not a criminal and is not a threat to anyone. Please grant this elder man, Imam and scholar his long overdue parole this time around.

      Police officer Piagentini begged for his life and pleaded with Tony Bottom and crew to spare him for the sake of his two small daughters and his wife. Tony Bottom stood over him, and as Police officer Piagentini begged, Tony Bottom shot him multiple times in his back as he tried to crawl away with more than 8 bullets in him. And Bottom feels he is a victim? Rot you coward!! Come out and maybe someone will do us a favor and do the same to you!!
