Our next guest is Yvette Allen… Her brother, Billie Jerome Allen is on death row in at the U.S. Federal Prison in Terre Haute… Yvette Allen, is leading protests to exonerate her brother of the murder charges and rid the nation of the death penalty.
“She’s hoping her brother’s case can outlast the Trump administration, which has ramped up Federal Executions at an alarming rate.”
“He was charged with the armed robbery of a bank in St. Louis and killing a bank security guard. Billie Allen has exhausted all his appeals and could get a date any day now.
Her outrage is that Trump and Barr are killing black men like it’s nothing, including one on the actual birthday of MLK. She says they don’t care, and are the very reason the Black Lives Matter movement exists.”
