Herman Bell denied parole again.

Despite his now 37 years in prison, Herman's impressive prison
record, including his B.A. and M.A., his years of football and basket
ball coaching (bringing prisoners together), his years of mentoring
and tutoring, his paralegal and HIV-counseling certificates, his
founding the Victory Gardens Project, his 3 job offers in SF, his
parole recommendations from three SF Supervisors (entrusted with the
welfare of San Franciscans), his decades of marriage, his children
and grandchildren and 9 siblings offering him a secure homecoming,
Herman Bell was denied parole for the fourth consecutive time
yesterday. He was told to come back in 24 months, at which time he
will be 64 years old. Our love and support greatly help in keeping
his spirit indomitable.
