An Interview with Cesar Polito, CF 7444
by http://commonstruggle.org/blog/6679 ">Jake
Cesar Polito is a prisoner at SCI Greene, in Greene county, Pennsylvania, serving a life sentence for murder. When you meet him, however, it is hard to imagine this man killing anyone. Instead, his eyes hold the pain of a human being whose entire life has been stolen. Cesar's childhood was robbed from him, snatched away by a world of poverty and violence in Colombia. His brief adolescence was lost to the danger, precariousness, and frustration of the immigrant's life in the United States. The entirety of his adulthood, from the time he was eighteen, he has spent in prison. Now at the age of thirty-nine, Cesar shares his story in the hopes of catching the attention of anyone who can help him finally gain a reprise from the countless injustices he has faced since he took his first breath.
