… and why do they want to kill us?
No, Percy Crosby wasn’t exactly murdered, but he may as well have been. Sudden death may have been more humane than slow death after Sixteen Years of unlawful, and nearly solitary confinement.
Crosby, a longtime thorn in the side of corruption everywhere, was locked away in a State Hospital, without evidence of any due process, until he died in his austere imprisonment.
The only person who managed an occasional visit during Crosby’s institutionalization, (P.C. term of the day for Political Prison) was fellow artist, Rube Goldberg.
Why was Percy Crosby institutionalized Sixteen Years, until his death in 1964?
Why don’t we know who initiated the actions against Percy Crosby?
Why was Percy Crosby’s confinement executed with no due process, courts of appeal or a thorough and public judicial review, as required by the Constitution of the United States and the laws of the land?
Why, 18 Years after his death, was Percy Crosby’s family still refused access to his records, or the records of the commitment procedure/process? (If Any)
Why, was a routine request for information on a deceased relative escalated to an Assistant Attorney General?
Why, even today, more than Fifty Years after Percy Crosby’s death, are these records still sealed. More than 900 pages on microfiche that were deliverd are so incomplete or heavily redacted that they say little and lead only to more questions?
And why do pleas for relevant information remain ignored, refused, and met with the same obfuscatory bureaucratic Red tape and secrecy usually reserved for National Security information.
Surely one of the world’s influential artists and social commentators can’t be a threat to National Security after more than Fifty Years!
and Misdemeanors Might They Be Hiding?
Percy Crosby’s family deserves to know, and so do you
…You are the American People, for whom Percy Crosby spoke.
If It Happened Then, Do You Think it’s Not Happening Now?
