Jaylen Barker, an African-American man, is serving a life sentence at Rankin County Central Mississippi Correctional Facility for the murder of Mr. Joseph Tillman.
The murder of Mr. Tillman, which has gotten international attention, occurred on November 6, 2016. The exterior of this case seems to be a night out with colleagues that ends in murder. The interior looks like a mosaic of mistruths, civil rights violations, political conspiracies, omissions of evidence, and even some pitiful admissions of mistakes by one judge.
Malaika Canada is in possession of her sons’ entire legal file (from pre-arrest to confinement and beyond). It’s pelted with unconsidered evidence and information that directly refutes the credibility of the judicial system; the prosecutors; the judge; and is riddled with mistruths and conspiracy theories.
Malaika Canada and her aunt Willette Duvall, contacted Bishop William Todd Ervin, Sr. (The Struggle is Real Foundation), who has fought many battles for equality and fair treatment with notable ministers such as Jesse Jackson. “We can no longer afford to ignore and pretend if we want these types of situations to come to an end”, says Bishop William Todd Ervin, Sr., who intends to stand before these ailing families in need.
Malaika Canada isn’t alone. She stands with an army of other parents who share the same story, some with the same attorney, the same plea, the same prosecutor, and the same judge, who is now famous for his rambunctious behavior. Oddly, Malaika’s seventy-five-year-old mother, who was arrested for contempt and then released, Sarah Smith is the local bail bondsman, former newspaper owner, and friend of both the Prosecutor and Judge. She is no stranger to any of the parties on the case, in fact, everyone has fellowshipped together in her home. So why Jaylen? Is there an underlying truth to this story?
