Early in the morning on April 18, 2006, with two children alone and asleep, Howell Woltz was kidnapped by the FBI. He was never shown a warrant, or told that he was under arrest.
Little did Howell know, he would spend the next seven years being moved 29 times to prisons and jails all over the "land of the free"...
He was never convicted by any court of jurisdiction of any crime, yet was punished as if he had. Howell spent those years tirelessly working to reduce the sentences of other innocent prisoners and writing about the injustices he witnessed in a justice system that is now little more than a conviction machine.
During a year of solitary confinement, Howell grappled with the question, “Why me?” The answer he received was, “Because you are supposed to do something about it!” He began detailing the injustices faced by those he met in the gulags of the largest prison colony on earth or in history.
This is a story of betrayal in the ‘land of the free.’ It is a story of betrayal of our constitutional rights, the ideals set forth by our founding fathers, and the trust we put in our government.
Howell’s story is a rallying cry for all Americans.
