Who is Ramsey Muņiz

Ramsey Muņiz is a former athlete, graduate of Baylor Law School and attorney who defended civil and human rights during the Civil Rights Movement. He ran for governor of Texas in 1972 and 1974, and he brought positive change for Mexican Americans, Hispanics, and Latinos in politics. He suffered greatly for it, having been accused of drug-related crimes multiple times.

Today Ramsey Muņiz is serving a sentence of life without parole for having been unjustly arrested and convicted of a conspiracy to distribute drugs. He was stopped without cause   because he was a target.

What Happened  
in 1994

Muņiz worked as a Legal Assistant. In 1994 a  client asked him to move his car. The car was stopped without cause; narcotis had been planted in it. Reasons for stopping the car were proven false.

The client  (actual culprit) was allowed to go free,  and he never appeared at  trial.

Evidence that would have exonerated Muņiz was not produced by the prosecution  until it was too late.

Muņiz has been   incarcerated for 24 years and he is now 75 years of age.  He and his family have suffered greatly. 

Congressmen, leaders, and people of conscience have reached out to the Bureau of Prisons advocating for the Compassionate Release of Ramsey Muņiz. He has been diagnosed as having aspiration pneumonia, COPD, congestive heart failure, and kidney disease. He is dependent on oxygen. We seek his immediate release!

Lord, is there any justice and love still left in my beloved land? Free this man to spend his last days with his family
and grandchildren. In a just democracy there ought not to be any political prisoners.
