speaking of which....one of the 3 Grand Jury resisters has been released....Leah Lynn Plante....she has been in less than 2 weeks...about her current situation? "First and foremost, do not panic.

Leah wanted for us to express these points to you with this news:




She is extremely traumatized and experienced a lot of very, very bad things, but she is alive. The state of her mental health is also very bad.



She asks that people do not jump to wild conclusions about her release because they do not apply.



She spent her whole time in SHU / Administrative Detention (solitary confinement) and was told that that is where she would stay for the duration of her incarceration, up to 18 months. She was classified as "different" from Matt and Kteeo. "
