Kamala Harris’ Prosecutors Sent This Innocent Man to Prison


-Never in a million years
I would have thought that they were gonna
charge me for Seu’s murder. I never talked to no detective,
no police officer, no D.A., nobody. -Just arrested
and then charged. -Arrested and charged —
that’s it. -Was the first time you saw
Kamala Harris in person the day that the verdict
was issued? -She showed up
at the two most pivotal times in this first trial in me being convicted
and me being sentenced. She wanted to be present for
a celebration of a conviction. -That’s what it felt like,
a celebration? -A celebration,
that’s what it felt like. The reactions I get
when I tell people my story is they say it’s
the worst nightmare, you know? It’s the closest thing to dying. ♪♪ -Jamal, I’m going to read you
a quote real quick. “The job of
a progressive prosecutor is to look out
for those overlooked, to speak up for those
whose voices aren’t being heard, to see and address
the causes of crime, not just their consequences, and to shine a light
on the inequality and unfairness that lead to injustice. It is to recognize that not
everyone needs punishment, that what many need,
quite obviously, is help.” Kamala Harris wrote that in her book
“The Truths We Hold.” Does that sound consistent
with the kind of — with the brand of justice
that you saw administered by offices
that she was running? -It definitely sounds like
Kamala Harris right now as a senator, but at the time of her being the head District Attorney
of San Francisco, that is almost polar opposite
of what I felt and what our community felt
in San Francisco. ♪♪ -So, Jamal, where are we? -Right now we are
in Sunnydale Projects, where I was born and raised at. This isn’t a place that you — you would want to bring
outsiders into and a place
that they don’t want to go. This ain’t a place
that feels comfortable. It feels like you might
get robbed, you might get shot. -Police were keeping files
on you and your brothers and other people
who were living in Sunnydale from a very young age. -They already had me labeled because I’m in this community
as a potential gang member, potential killer,
potential drug dealer. You got to wake up to the fact that, you know,
things are set up against us. -There’s is a conspiracy.
-Yes. There — -It happened to you.
-Exactly. There is a big —
-It was proven in court. -Absolutely. Places like this have been developed for predominantly
African American people to not be able
to succeed beyond it. -Yeah. What did you know
about Kamala Harris? What did you know about San Francisco
having a Black D.A.? -Nobody in the hood
ever worried or focused on the D.A. position
in general, but people did focus on it
just a tad bit that it was Black and feeling like, “Okay, this Black lady in office,
Kamala Harris, she’s going to understand
where we come from”, you know, and have more
of a sympathetic way of prosecuting people
that come from our communities who have been plagued
with no opportunities. This is Hunter’s Point, where these different projects
and communities used to really war
with each other. -Jamal, in July 2007, what’s going on in your life
at that point, and then what happened
on July 24th? -I had recently just came off of
“I Love New York,” and also that’s when
my friend Seu Kuka got killed. -More than a year goes by, and no one’s been
arrested in the case. You hadn’t even been questioned. -Haven’t even
been questioned, no. The police was still, you know,
trying to get a conviction by all means necessary. When I was arrested for it, the community knew
I didn’t do it, and it was a, “Here we go again. See, this is why we don’t trust,
you know, law enforcement” because it gets to a point where somebody
who didn’t do something goes to jail for it. I don’t have no history
of crime. What’s up, boy?
[ Indistinct conversations ] I have a history of being around
in the community, but that doesn’t mean
that I’m a suspect. I’m like, “Aw, man,
I’ll be out within 72 hours. They’re gonna figure this out. They’re gonna clear this up.” -Then when you found out
what the evidence was that they supposedly
had you on, can you — There wasn’t much there. Can you describe what it was? -They had a woman saying
that she seen me kill Seu. The second witness that they had
really wasn’t a witness at all. She said anything that the police officers
wanted her to say, and they said that
her recollection of the event was extremely credible, so that’s what ultimately
got the arrest warrant. -The District Attorney
of San Francisco, Kamala Harris, appeared in the courtroom
during your trial twice. -Yeah. The two times that Kamala Harris
showed up to my trial was the —
when I got convicted and also when they laid down
the sentencing. -When you saw her on the day that the verdict
was handed down, did you take that
as a bad sign? -It felt to me that she was
well aware about my case, and she was there
to set her presence, almost take pride
in getting a conviction. [ Indistinct conversations ] When I put in my appeal, the people that’s fighting
against my appeal to keep the conviction
is the Attorney General office. I learned it reading, you know,
their reply to my appeal, and you see Kamala Harris’ name
at the bottom, and now it’s starting
to feel a little personal. -When you win
the $13.1 million, it’s a massive settlement. Did you feel like
that was enough? -There’s not an amount that can
get back those 7 years that — well, 6 1/2 years
that I spent in prison. But instead of me coming home
feeling like I was a victim, I wanted to prove
that I’m a survivor, and I will not let
my story go unheard. You know,
I’m not necessarily saying I’m looking for an apology, but some acknowledgment from her
that she could have messed up would be —
of course, that’d be huge. You could have made
some mistakes. You could have missed
some things. For me, it was a big miss. You know, I had life in prison. I met people in prison
that was wrongfully convicted. I want my story to be out
to provoke reform, ultimately. Beyond that, I want to be able
to be who I want to be. I’m an actor, you know. I’m a musician. I’m a father. I’m more than this person
that was framed. I’m more than this person
that was wrongfully convicted. ♪♪ ♪♪ ♪♪

  1. I hope she's proud of herself now. Nah, I really hope she loses sleep over this forever. Respect & bless up to this man's future.

  2. The news media got mad when TULSI GABBARD called Crooked Kamala Harris out, even the black radio host on urban view got mad at TULSI GABBARD, I'm glad she called that Crooked woman out i would never vote for her.

  3. Police/Prison Reform is progressive, which she is not. She is part of the problem and has the nerve to try to relate to black people on a shallow, superficial, stereotypical, surface level. She never stood up for us when it counted, which is why I will vote for the candidate who chained himself to a black woman while fighting for civil rights. I don't care about color, policies and heart is what matters.

  4. Kamala Harris is not a choice as well as Obama wasn’t . None of them will ever do the right thing specially blacks when trying to please massa

  5. Black women will vote her in, just to see a one of them in the chair, regardless of how she will cuase further chaos to us.

  6. Really just took a look through the vice video collection with regard to politics and notice the slightly right lean. I like my stations balanced when it also sneaks in cultures that don’t necessarily have anything to do with the direction of the channel! With that ✌️I don’t even have the patience to have y’all in my algorithm🤦‍♂️🤷‍♂️

  7. The Democrat Party has Always been keeping blacks down ever since Slavery and killing black babies abortion etc… Democrats even started the KKK And had a Democrat President that said he'd have N's Voting Democrat for over 200_years!! Blacks are now Mentally inslaved by Democrats!!

  8. Kamala is a hateful, and vile woman, who has used the lives of black folk to further her position. Don’t hold your breath on an apology.

  9. The democrats attack mark zuckerberg for not doing enough for the black community. Kamala harris has intentionality tried to enslave this innocent man all for her personal greed and gain. The left will turn a blind eye to this incident because they are built on a bunch of emotional lies.

  10. I can't wait for Harris to slip! She will go away for life!!! Freaking scum rat! She needs to be locked out of politics and brought up on charges! She is NOT black and her own father doesn't claim her!!! I gotta good feeling she won't be re-elected as senator again!

  11. She is not black. Her dad is half Jamaican, her mom is Indian from India. She a joke. She hate men of color. It shows how many she has sent to prison. You can tell how phony she is. She slept her way to the top.

  12. Theses lawyers don't care who they convict as long as they put someone in prison it makes the office and their numbers look good. Kamala Harris will not get my vote. Glad to the brother gotmout and got paid for his pain and suffering!

  13. The only people that are pro Kamala are the Anti-Tulsi crowd.
    I cannot believe ANYONE would even like her let alone support her…

  14. First of all, Kamala isn't Black! Second, she locked up more Black Men than the Clintons, she doesn't care about the Black community, but she wants our votes.

  15. I lean right but can at least respect how Bernie stands behind his morales/viewpoints. Kamala Harris has that Hillary Clinton robot feeling to her. Nothing she says seems sincere and sounds bought out by corporations. She’s a joke, and how anyone would support the robot she is I will never understand.

  16. Wowwwww…I’m not surprised at all but thank God that this man is strong minded and as tenacious as he was to get his freedom back and persevere once he was free. God bless him 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾

  17. Its funny we are talking about her like she actually worked on his case personally. Once again they use a black person to tear down another black person.

  18. Come to Detroit and see the Prosesutors office, Detroit Police, judges work together to set criminals Free. I have proof of this!!!

  19. These Racist institutions are putting these Sellout Bootlick PUPPETS in WHITE Spaces, just for stuff like this throughout the Nation and WORLD!

  20. A prosecutor's BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENT should ALWAYS BE ENSURING THOSE UNFAIRLY TREATED ARE SET FREE OR LEFT ALONE FROM THE BEGINNING!
    1. Kamala wants everyone to believe she's for a thing that SHE REFUSED TO MARRY!
    2. Kamala HAS NEVER BEEN FOR THE BLACK COMMUNITY other than to continue to LOCK THEM UP!
    3. Kamala should never be the President of America.
    The end

  21. And the sad part of this dixiecrat who has wore out her welcome in the Black community some braindead negro would still vote for this piece of trash. Just say no on election day.

  22. She's been selling her soul amongst other things, all for 🤑🤑🤑🤑🤑🤑🤑and power. God help us if this sick individual ever got nominated let alone elected to this great country thanks to Trump.

  23. You see the corruption here but clamor for more of the same… Stop voting for Democrats! You do not need them to succeed. Anyone who promises you something that belongs to someone else is a crook! They will not look out for your best interest. They haven't, they won't, stop voting for them! You have the power to succeed within yourselves, even against all the odds. People do much better overcoming the odds themselves rather than try and get someone else to do it for them.

  24. If Vice is blasting Heels up Harris then you know she is a rotten, hypocritical, opportunistic CEE U NEXT THURSDAY.

  25. I didn’t hear him say once that she directly did something to him. He said “they”
    Convicted him.. was she true actual attorney? Or was she on a level of hierarchy where her signature was needed and blinded by coverup or corruption? What is her response if any?

  26. Seeing Harris' name on all his paperwork began to gnaw at him, though: "It's starting to feel personal," he said. Even though she didn't prosecute the cases personally, "when it came to the sign off, it felt personal…… she DID NOT PROSECUTE the case!

  27. um nice try Trumpsters… "the jugde & jury convicted him!!!"😔 Blame Them Not Kamala Harris & im glad to see this brother get his conviction overturned 🙏💯…. 🇺🇸Harris for President 🇺🇸

  28. Do not vote for this fake black woman she is not for the black population how can you stand behind a false conviction he is not the only affected there are more DO NOT VOTE FOR HER

  29. Her smile and fake laugh says it all… honestly there’s moments where she resembles what a closet drunk looks like… America should not trust her at all.

  30. She separated parents from their kids, because the kids were skipping school, now she jumps up and down about the boarder, phony ass hoe

  31. The fact that I am in Virginia and not one of the hundreds of people that I have spoke with do not like Kamala Harris and do not see themselves voting for her if she is the first runner up against Trump. If she is the nominee then I will be voting for the orange guy atleast I know what to expect from him

  32. To pretend to act as a progressive and as a person of criminal justice reform goes against what Kamala Harris proven track record. This broad will do anything by any means to get ahead to include selling her integrity. She has can not have any integrity, dignity, or principles left. If so prove me wrong.

  33. That Bitch Copmala isn't even black. She didn't start claiming she was black until it was politically beneficial for her. She wants reparations for Indians but not Foundation Black Americans or American Descendants of Slaves. When asked what are you specifically going to do for Black Americans this bitch laughed and said nothing. So as far as I'm concerned Copmala can eat a dicc.

  34. Is this because she is running for president or what? I know she is not the only prosecuter who has done this but that is not good for your narrative 😂

  35. Millions of black people are in jail without evidence. Bill Cosby is currently in jail for 10 years with Zero evidence… for simply touching his long term girlfriend. He had proof that he wasn't even in town. They believed a white girl who lied 6 times during trial… over Cosby who had proof. White justice.
