Eleven Years of Injustice: The Steven Harris Story (Part 1)
Steven Jesse Harris was imprisoned for 11 years in Mississippi without trial. He was ultimately cleared of murder accusations following a dangerous fight for justice.
In 2016, a Mississippi man who clinically was classified as a schizophrenic, while imprisoned for 11 years without trial, got cleared of murder accusations against him – after a long fight for justice was previously undertaken to gain his freedom.
According to a report from Mississippi’s Clarion Ledger newspaper, in October of 2005, police found and arrested Steven Jessie Harris for the murder of his father, 72-year-old Malichi Randle, a veteran of the Korean War. Randle dedicated his life to protesting America’s racist treatment of Black U.S. military members – who risked their lives only to come home from war and face systemic oppression.
Close observers of this case have whispered claims, which insinuate that Mr. Randle’s staunch activism made him and his family targets of racist and terroristic acts – conducted by state and local officials in law enforcement, as well as groups sympathetic to the Ku Klux Klan. Clay County, Mississippi’s Sheriff Eddie Scott made dubious accusations that Harris murdered his father prior to arriving at a Sonic Drive-in carrying a.22 rifle.
