Lynne’s crime was compassion. She was imprisoned for doing the right thing. She did it honestly, admirably and courageously.
She did it defending some of America’s most disadvantaged for 30 years.
She’s dying. She has Stage Four cancer. She was given 12 months to live. She qualifies in all respects for compassionate release.
Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) authorities denied her. Doing so reflects official Obama administration policy. In Lynne’s words, BOP “stonewall(ed) since August.”
“They know (she’s) fully qualified.” Over 40,000 supporters “signed on to force (BOP) to do the right thing which is to let (her) go home to (her) family and receive the advanced care in New York City, (her) home.”
