HARSH JUSTICE in America
Clowers paid minor fines and served probation time for loitering, reckless driving and possession of small amounts of marijuana as a teenager. Otherwise, he had a clean record.
According to Clowers, while he was in jail for a marijuana arrest, Federal agents asked him about drug dealing activities of which he said he knew nothing. The agents threatened to charge him with more serious crimes if he did not cooperate, which he did not.
Months later, he was arrested following a traffic stop, when a police search of his car revealed a marijuana butt, a revolver and cash. Living up to previous threats, he was charged with being a ringleader in a crack distribution operation, a charge which Clowers adamantly denies.
Clowers was convicted mainly based on the testimonies of witnesses who received reduced sentences in exchange. Despite his minor criminal history, he was sentenced to mandatory life without parole at the age of 20.
The drug amounts which were the basis of the sentence were not charged on the indictment. Instead, they were adopted by the sentencing judge based on a determination by a federal probation officer, even though no crack or powder cocaine had been seized by the authorities.
Long interested in philosophy, while in prison he says he loves to read, meditate, “and travel with my spirit and mind.” As a follower of the Tree of Life school of thought, he says he is “fighting for my freedom and trying to align with the positive aspects of my destiny.”
