While Albert Woodfox was granted a new trial and faces re-sentencing, his friend and fellow Black Panther, Herman Wallace is filing an appeal that his case be overturned. Malik Rahim, a former Black Panther who has known both men for over two decades, says he fears for the safety of Herman Wallace, Albert Woodfox and the prisoners who testified on their behalf. One inmate witness has already "killed himself"(his quotes) after a "failed escape attempt," and Rahim fears that an escape attempt will be staged by guards, giving them reason to shoot and kill the men. He urges people to contact Louisiana Governor Mike Foster to demand that the safety of these men be monitored, and to offer their analysis of the facts as presented in the trial.
