The state has filed an answer to the lawsuit, which far as we can tell, summarily denies every allegation without evidence or argument, claims that Sean is not allowed to sue them, and requests that the court charge Sean extra fees for even trying. At the same time, the paralegal at OSP is making up reasons to not give Sean access to legal materials he needs to work on his response. A total coincidence, we're sure. See Sean's correspondence below for details on that.

Disclaimer for anarchists- the goal of this peice is not to claim that Keith's experience of injustice is exceptional or that his innocence affords him special treatment relative to others who suffer in US prisons. I am an abolitionist and an anarchist, I beleive that all prisoners are political, and nothing the state does it legitimate. The point of this post is to witness and detail one of many examples of how threadbare and absurd state's arguments can be when they attempt to legitimize lynching someone.
