JAMIE SCOTT/SCOTT SISTERS UPDATES (9/18)

Warm Greetings all,

Mrs. Evelyn Rasco and Jamie Scott's 18 yr. old son, Terrance, have been
speaking out on blogtalk radio and are very grateful for any and all support!
On 9/18 Bro. Ronald Herd, II, did a dynamic program with Mrs. Rasco,
Terrance, and Bro. Chokwe Lumumba, who called in at about 45 mins.
into the show. Bro. Lumumba shared his perspective on the case and
strongly urged that calls, letters, mass media promotion, and rallies in
Mississippi (such as that being planned by the MWM) be organized to build
large numbers of supporters and put continuous pressure on the system
there. Bro. Lumumba pointed out that this case stands out as being
unique among the many others in that the charge is so "mickey mouse" in
relationship to the horrific sentencing that these women received (double-
life each). He also educated listeners on the responsibility of Black/New
Afrikan people as potential jurors in the court system, and much more.
This show is archived

PresentsWE-ALL-BE-News-Radio and is definitely worth checking out!

Mrs. Rasco received the troubling news yesterday (9/17) that even though
we were told that Jamie Scott had been moved to the Medical Bldg. at the
prison, she in fact was not. Although Jamie did receive her medications
thanks to the efforts of the many people who called and wrote, she
continues to be held in a repressive bldg. under severe restrictions with all
of the privileges she has earned for 14+ yrs completely stripped away,
including school, work, the law library and church. This is significant in
that, once again, the punishment does not fit the alleged "crime" of being in
the gymnasium when she was not supposed to be, although she was
admitted into there by staff. This is a political move because other inmates
with similar infractions receive nowhere near the level of the punishment
Jamie has been dealt, particularly since she has had no previous write-ups
in all these many years!

We continue to need your assistance in addressing this serious issue, as


Jamie is terrified that she will be attacked in the bldg. she has been moved
to. She is still recovering from illness due to lack of meds and is
additionally very depressed and anxious. Please call and write these
officials and let them know that Jamie Scott, #19197, needs to have
her privileges reinstated and be returned to a more appropriate
building and level of custody for someone with her previously
blemish-free record.

We continue to stress the need for a pro bono attorney for the
women, legal guidance and representation is desperately needed as
none currently exists. Many organizations have been contacted multiple
times in the past and perhaps it will be YOUR letter or phone call to the
Innocence Project, the ACLU, NAACP, etc., that will garner the positive
response that we have not been able to obtain to date!

Also, when possible, please take a moment and send these women a card
or letter as their 15 year anniversary of unjust imprisonment approaches.
They need your encouraging words now more than ever.
