Call for letters in support of Jalil Muntaqim’s parole application

Cautiously pessimistic

Jalil Muntaqim, a long-term prisoner who’s been incarcerated since his involvement with the Black Panther Party and Black Liberation Army in the early 1970s, is eligible for parole this summer. Since his conviction was for shooting a police officer, the police and pro-cop politicians always lobby hard against his release, just as they did for his codefendant Herman Bell. To write letters supporting Jalil’s release, a guide has been compiled here:

Once again, we are preparing for Jalil’s upcoming parole hearing in June. Since the PBA, the FOP, and the Correctional Officers union are able to collect thousands of signatures against parole, we must work to gain as many signatures and letters of support for Jalil as possible. A hard copy of the petition can be downloaded here. This can be signed and returned to nycjericho@gmail.com.
