    to learn about and I am grateful for Democracy Now to have covered it so much in detail.

    I am so angry, because such stories don't get covered overseas in the way they should. I hope one day they do a real historical accurate documentary about the Black Panther party and the Angola 3. When I have time I dig into our archives to see what they (the German TV) has ever broadcasted about them.

    I just couldn't believe the cruelty, inhumanity and way these prisoners were treated. I have so much ... can't even find the right word for it ... hate ... for the US prison system and injustice that has been imposed on these people. Last time I was so offended and disgusted was when I was a teenager and read the first survivor biographies of the Holocaust. I am sorry to make such comparison, but the intensity of feelings going through my system listening to the intense urge of prison guards to abuse and break down those prisoners is something I couldn't stand anymore this morning to listen to. I am too loaded starting my workday and my colleagues already shun me because I am "strange".

    All these people in the media I meet they just ... let it roll off their shoulders ... if they at all care about listening to such stories.  Every little shit they report, but not the real shit they shouldn't overlook. I am so tired of this.
