DudleyPhoto: Chris Seward –


After 23 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit, convicted by false accusation and perjury, Howard Dudley has been released from prison in North Carolina.

Dudley: “The only thing I had to fight with was the truth.”

Judge: “This cries out as an injustice to Mr. Dudley.” “The Brady violations are ‘egregious, even outrageous.'”   

 Major congratulations and thanks to the Duke Law Wrongful Convictions Clinic for persevering through the discovery and litigation processes on this case for the last three years.

    The challenge is for them to lawfully die BEFORE they can harm others •
    Proactive strikes such as “Operation Anthropoid” against SS Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich are highly effective and they work , albeit they are not presently acceptable in the United States disciplinary process ☺ •

    “Social order is based on law, and its perpetuity on its fair and impartial administration. ▬►Deliberate injustice is more ▬►fatal to the one who imposes it than to the one on whom it is imposed. The victim may die quickly and his suffering cease, but the teachings of Chrisit[i]anity and the uniform lesson of all history illustrate without exception that its perpetrators not only pay the penalty themselves, but their children through endless generations….”
