Free Eddy Zheng

I met Eddy while I was TA'ing in the San Quentin Prison college program many years ago, and found him to be a wonderful caring and compassionate human being despite all the drama he'd been through in his life. He was recently released from prison after serving 19 years (his sentence was 7 to life at age 16..tried as an adult)...and swiftly swept off to an INS detention facility, which is where he is sitting today.

If you are a person concerned with real social justice or even just a person who recognizes that the time should match the crime. Please take a moment to drop a line to the judge .
