Criminal Injustice

Conrad Black speaking earlier this month to Allan Gregg, just days before the putative Lord of Crossharbour headed back to a Florida prison to serve the remainder of his sentence for mail fraud and obstruction of justice.

In the interview, Black shares what his daily life in prison was like, what he’ll do and where he’ll live when he gets out, and shares his opinions on what he sees as a profoundly corrupt U.S. justice system.

Of his remaining sentence, Black says he is unenthused, but unintimidated: “It’s an outrage, but in one sense… the greater the palpable and demonstrable injustice with which I am treated, the easier it is to make my case and possibly be of some use in alleviating the problems of others who otherwise would be as vulnerable to this or more than I have been.”

  1. How is the US corrupt? To the neo-cons who make-up the CPC, it is supposed to be Nirvana …

  2. Sarcastic point taken.

    I think Black discovered, much to his chagrin, what happens when the justice system is politicized.
