John Hinckley Jr. committed high treason when he shot the president of the United States, Ronald Reagan, and his press secretary Mr. James Brady. An act warranting the death penalty and infamy under United States Constitutional law. Instead, he has been coddled and nurtured through "class-privilege" throughout his temporary incarceration. Hinckley was approximately 26 years of age when he committed his high profile domestic terrorist crimes.
In the case of Bruce Allen, he was 19 years of age when he committed his crimes of defending himself from further physical attack by a group of hard core gang members (who were also "liquor intoxicated" at the time of the incident). The individual gang members relevant to the case all had felony criminal records at the time of the incident (July 20, 1981). Allen has remained incarcerated in California for over 35 successive years. He is currently 54 years old. He does not have a parole date. It does not require a great intelligence to understand that continuous acts of injustice are being committed upon Bruce Allen, and his entity as a human being. From his youth until even now, the identifiable characteristic of human indifference is pervasive in his life. The denial of truth, equality, justice, and continuing to inflict punishment upon him at this late stage of his life is not an aberration within the California judicial system, it is a willfull and calculated act (bump the citizen with irrational sentencing and parole laws, then lift his wallet through continuous tax increases, to pay for mass incarceration). Justice is not a favor. It is a standard, tenet, and indelible mark of equality. It is the antidote to tyranny. The appropriate question is: "Do you have a spirit that knows the difference between right and wrong, that clear contrast between civilized and savagery?" It is debasement of justice to laud the freedom of John Hinckley, but deny the same freedom to Bruce Allen. And thusly, a corrupt foundation is laid, upon which are children will falter. I continue to petition for commutation of my current sentence (LWOP). Any help that you can contribute toward that state of justice will be appreciated. Thank you.
Dr. Bruce Allen
