the biggest miscarriage of justice I've ever come across..
This is so wrong! I'm praying that the truth will come out and for his freedom!
Thirty-three years for rape is a long sentence. EVEN if he committed the crime, which no evidence suggests that he did, hasn't he served his time? I would fight for his freedom because he is innocent, but 33 years for a crime where no one was killed nor injured is horrific. This speaks more about the people who carry out the legal system than it does about the those physically imprisoned. I never take my freedom for granted and I don't even know anyone personally in prison, but I would be willing to give up a day of my freedom if it meant a day of freedom for Vincent Simmons. However, that does not solve his injustice, so I will continue to support him as best as I know how. You are not forgotten Vincent.
This is such a prejudice judicial Klan crime at its best! Yes, the parole board was very pathetic. Keep up the faith you will be rewarded at the end. Sad that you have to do time to be rewarded on a un just crime. But they will pay dearly. Keep your head up.
Why hasn't the innocence project taken this case on? From what I have gathered there is literally ZERO evidence on this man other than some VERY suspect circumstancial evidence along with some highly questionable law enforcement personnel. I hope someone can help this man get a new and FAIR trial. I am sure he would be found not guilty. Ironic that these twins claimed rape yet evidence seems to show the only rape was commited by the twins themselves. The rape of this man's freedom! Sounds like yet another racist-influenced witch hunt.
the innocence project only takes cases about dna which there is none in this case they do what science couldnt do years ago this case would not be taking by the project
Dear Vincent Simmons,I just saw your parole board scene in the movie The Farm: Life Inside Angola Prison. Believing wholeheartedly that you were mistreated there, I hope that you soon get a fair trial.Blessings.
I'm literally in tears is there anything we can do to help.
Wow! Watching the documentary seeing how the parole board tried masking their obvious dark hearts was seen so clear. Matter fact let's bring an African American in here too make it seem fair. While the two if us just conversate together we know he did it. Even after documents say hymen wasn't torn. Jeez! Come on. Sad this man life has been stolen from him . Hope he gets justice Stay strong.
Give this man his life back!!! It's a sad, sad world we live in when an innocent man must sit in a jail cell a victim of not only a miscarriage of Justice but blatant racism at the highest level! The Sanders Twins should be ashamed of themselves for their assistance in this travesty! From the very beginning , Mr. Simmons has conducted himself respectfully and politely, more than I can say in regards to the police, his accusers and the parole board. Isn't it about time we removed the blindfold from the eyes of Justice?
How can we contact Vincent ? This man needs global love and support X
Dear Vincent, I am sending you love and strength. Truth will ultimately prevail.
We are praying for you Vincent. May Yeshua free you from this place very soon.
I remember seeing this in the 90s! He's still not out!!? I'm crying over this it is disgusting and that parole board is nothing but biggets. You can see the racism in them when he's up for parole it's sad. Prayers sent your way Vincent you will be rewarded one way or the other be it this life or the other and they will all pay when judgment day comes!
An innocent man incarcerated by two racist white teens playing a sick game. Supported by racist, white southern police. Need any more be said! No physical evidence, evidence that the girls lied (a vicious, brutal rape that they claimed would not leave thier hymens intact). a rigged line up.Real justice would be a retrial, which would lead to his exhoneration. He was railroaded. His life was stolen. They should go to jail for lying and ruinjng his life!
this seems a perfect case for the innocence project, Why arent they helping??
@teal76 This is answered above. The Innocence Project represents clients seeking post-conviction DNA testing to prove their innocence. There is no DNA from this case to be tested.
