This Can't Be Happening guest Bret Grote, legal director of the Abolitionist Law Center in Pennsylvania, talks about his organization's lawsuit in federal court against the medical abuse and neglect the state's Department of Corrections is visiting on one particular prisoner, Mumia Abu-Jamal. Grote explains that Abu-Jamal was allowed to develop diabetes without treatment to the point that he lost consciousness, and was then hospitalized with relatives and even his lawyers barred from visiting him or learning his condition. The lawsuit demands access to Abu-Jamal and to his medical records, and access to him by physicians obtained by his family.
