Free Da Poor
By Malik Spellman
Published June 25, 2009

So they say that we are running out of cash here in California. Well, I have a simple solution to such a complex problem. And that is to free the poor people that are in prison serving time for crimes that are definitely forgivable and will save us millions.

The first thing we should do is release all the brothers and sisters that are being held in these institutions with old B&C numbers from the seventies and early eighties. Not only are these people fully rehabilitated–which I must remind you was the purpose of sending them there–prison was not designed to make money off of the poor for long periods of time. Having these people away from their families for many years and miles will not help restore the moral fabric of America. See people life is very important to us as a family and if we are going to get any place in this world we are going to need a little more compassion towards one another. I use to get mail from brothers and sisters behind the wall and they would express a deep desire to make amends with the people that they allegedly hurt including the ones who are their family members. See CHRIST the King was a master of forgiveness. That is why he was given the level of power that he has. We on the other hand have conditional love. Our ancestors like TOOKIE and MANY OTHERS had the perfect love and the perfect hate. The perfect love is for your family and hood! And the perfect hate is for poverty and lack of respect for the poor. When you stop caring for your own people you become a savage. And a savage is a person that has lost all knowledge of self and is living a beastly way of life. I am quite sure we know people who are like that.

As you and I are reading this article there is a lost soul out there trying to carry a gun in his own mind, HOPING to kill something Black or Brown. Just go to the chow hall and listen to the voice of Satan tell his stories of destruction and what he is going to do to a person when he sees them or when he gets out. Meanwhile there are children who can’t play outside because of a wild pork-eating savage hell-bent on oppressing the poor for the devil. “Every time we see poor people being sent to prison for long periods of time we find ourselves lower than the crime that was committed.” You want to save money in California? Turn off the lethal injection machine at San Quentin.


You can even save a life or two possibly a whole family. After all when you sentence a man or woman you sentence the whole family. I know because I see it happening every day in the hood. Children are not being educated in the schools because someone with a education can’t make the right decision to help others get a education is digusting to say the least. I went wretching in the restroom when I saw the home of one of the school board members–a lavish hood surrounded by trees. I said to myself that’s where all the schoolbook money went. These new blood suckers of the poor only see dollars. How as a governor can you allow people to be used and blamed for the economics system.

Arnold you should stop balancing the books on the backs of the uneducated. These people both Black and Brown and poor Whites are suffering for real. Don’t continue to forget that GOD is watching you and others, so next time you board that Lear jet and travel to a place so close that you could of driven yourself, remember the budget and the poor Hispanic people in the small farm areas you were going to help with the water crisis. They don’t need a Hollywood star they need the government to act quickly because THEY ARE RUNNING OUT OF WATER… Free Chaka and Malik… Sand Mn Holla. Parakeet and Uno, I have not forgotten you all. They don’t give me mail from the poor that often, if ever. 323 353-3898 holla. Free Doc Holiday n Ray Ray.
