  • The curious case of Rolf Kaestel: 33 years in prison and counting

    Salt Lake City Weekly has a fascinating story on Rolf Kaestel, sentenced to life in prison for a robbing $261 from Bob's Taco Hut in Fort Smith 33 years ago. Much worse offenders are released from prison all the time. But few prisoners have Kaestel's record of courthouse lawyering and key involvement in blowing the whistle in a scandal in an Arkansas inmate plasma program.

Re: “The curious case of Rolf Kaestel: 33 years in prison and counting

Kaestel is one of the few who noticed the blood-related corruption going on in Arkansas prisons which led to the spread of HIV and Hepatitis-C tainted blood in Canada and elsewhere, injuring thousands and killing others. Not only that, but he is one of the few who actually tried to do something about the corruption in order to help people. The sad irony is that he has not only not been rewarded for his blood safety efforts but he has instead been implicitly punished by being kept in prison. This warped acceptance of injustice by society has to stop. He deserves freedom. Now.
