71-year-old Herman Wallace was released from prison on Tuesday, October 1st, after spending the past 42-years in solitary confinement in the Louisiana State Penitentiary, known as Angola Prison.  He is dying of liver cancer and has only days to live.  Wallace was convicted of murdering a prison guard named Brent Miller in 1974 while serving time for armed robbery, and despite being convicted of the crime, many believed that he was innocent.  Even Brent Miller’s wife didn’t believe that Wallace committed the crime, and many feel as though the crime was pinned on him due to his ties to the Black Panther party.
