Rev. Pinkney's Case Heard at United Nations Hearing in Chicago Yesterday

Today is the 406th day that Rev. Edward Pinkney of Benton Harbor, Michigan, languishes in prison doing felony time for a crime he did not commit. Today is also the day that Robert McKay, a spokesperson for the Free Rev. Pinkney campaign, gave testimony before United Nations representatives about the plight of Rev. Pinkney at a hearing held in Chicago.

The hearing was called in order to shed light upon the mistreatment of African-Americans in the United States and put it on an international stage. And yet as the UN representatives and audience heard of the injustices in the Pinkney case many gasped in disbelief and asked with frowns on their faces, "how is this possible?" But disbelief quickly disappeared when everyone realized these were the same feelings they had when they first heard of Flint and we all know what happened in Flint.
