🔥 WE ARE FIGHTING FOR TROY LAWRENCE 🔥 America’s 3 Strikes Drug Law made it shockingly easy to get a LIFE sentence. Smoking a joint at a party is Strike 1. Having a razor blade with cocaine residue is Strike 2. Selling a $10 crack rock as a teenager is Strike 3 = LIFE without parole! This week, let’s talk about teenaged mistakes. Ever made any? We have. Both of Troy Lawrence’s first two strikes happened when he was just 17 years old and sold $10 bags of cocaine. The feds used his JUVIE CONVICTIONS to require a life sentence. Troy’s been #buriedalive for decades. Do you feel safer with Troy locked in a cage? Link arms w/ us as we fight for Troy’s freedom & so many like him. 🔥🔥🔥 #WomenWarriors #WomenLawyers #Thirdstrikecampaign #BuriedAlive#BreakChains #FirstStepAct #LawyerLocksmiths #BlackWomenLawyer 🔥🔥🔥
