Is Oregon Prison Setting a Black Inmate Up for Murder?

Terrence Kimble is a falsely convicted Oregon inmate.

Oregon State Penitentiary transfers a known “enemy” inmate into a prison where a falsely convicted Black inmate is preparing for release. This fits a pattern where inmates are set up for murder by state officials well aware of the animosity between the inmates.

Tim King Global News Centre(SALEM)  Terrence Kimble was falsely convicted of Sex Abuse and sentenced to an unusually high number of years (19) for a crime he didn’t commit. White inmates serve much shorter sentences for the same crime as shown in this report, titled, “White Men Can Dance” (www.salem-news.com/articles/april032012/terrence-kimble-tk.php)

Will Oregon mass killings be a tipping point?
Probably Not

(SAN FRANCISCO)  On October 1, 2015, ten people were killed and another seven injured after Christopher Harper-Mercer, a 26-year-old gunman, opened fire in a classroom at Umpqua Community College in southern Oregon.  Harper-Mercer then took his own life.  President Obama vowed to continue pushing new gun policies that he said would prevent further mass shootings.  Will this mass killings be a tipping point resulting in passage of reasonable federal gun control legislation?  Probably not.

(MYRTLE CREEK)  An Oregon man who suffers from combat PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) was told he would lose his gun rights in late 2013, because he was deemed “incompetent” by the VA (Veterans Administration).  Pat Kirby, a decorated Vietnam Veteran, was threatened with the loss of his most basic rights as an American, because he doesn’t physically write checks to pay his own bills.  His wife, Susan Kirby, has always taken care of the financial side of their family affairs, ever since he came home from his final tour in Vietnam, in 1972.* For that reason, he was initially told he would literally have to hand over his guns, from his extremely rural location, in the mountains near Roseburg, Oregon.

Terrence Kimble says harassment he has experienced includes being called a “nigger” and also derogatory comments directed toward his dead mother.

(SALEM)  Terrence Kimble’s wrongful conviction for Sex Abuse in Oregon may stand out as one of the state’s most egregious and amazing miscarriages of justice.  I have written about it extensively.  Kimble is serving a 19-year sentence for a crime that he did not commit.  He says he continues to experience a level of racial harassment from Oregon prison officials that underscores the very reason many observers believe he was convicted: the fact that he is Black.

2014 Wolf Walk progressing across Northwest

(SALEM)  Calling Mato Woksape a spiritual person is accurate, but still a tremendous understatement.  This Native American from Oregon is leading the 2014 North American Wolf Walk which began near Madras earlier this month.  He is raising awareness and building pressure on the government which he believes is collectively turning its back on one of the world’s most sacred animals.  Woksape, knows through inside circles as the Invisible Warrior, says the Wolf Walkers are on a spiritual journey to get in touch with the wild spirit of the wolf.

Senator Wyden, It’s Time For Decidin’

The Israeli lobby is second only to the NRA in power and influence and those who work for Israel get support, media time and lots of AIPAC ( Israeli lobby) money. Those who defy Tel Aviv are shut down rather quickly. Ron Wyden has consistently been among the top ten recipients of AIPAC money.

(SILVERTON) Would we Oregonians elect a senator who was also currently a senator for the state of California? Would we accept a governor who was also the governor of another state? It isn’t likely. We would want someone who represented us alone and not other interests. Anything less and we would understandably feel cheated. But did you know that Oregon senator Ron Wyden is an Israeli citizen? He is a “dual-citizen” of Israel and the US. Now I like Wyden….he is no Wayne Morse, but is as close as we have had for some time. However, I firmly believe that no US senator, congressman, president or vice-president, a representative of American citizens, should be a foreign citizen, whether Israeli, Danish or Italian.
