Rubin “Hurricane” Carter died earlier today, April 20, 2014. He was a contender for middleweight champion of the world when corrupt cops in NJ put him in prison for a crime he did not commit. He educated himself in prison, redeemed his life and eventually gained his freedom. His case eventually gained national attention and shined a light on a New Jersey judicial system that had become corrupt and racist. May his memory be for a blessing.
