Kite Line: Leon Benson in His Own Words, Part One

Weekly anti-prison podcast and radio shot Kite Line returns with their weekly show.

Listen and Download HERE

This week, we hear from Leon Benson, who calls us from inside an Indiana prison. You might remember some of Leon’s story from a Kite Line episode we aired in December of last year, called “You Can’t Force the State to Abide by the Law” in which his sister, Valerie, introduced Leon’s story. Leon’s been incarcerated for decades for a murder he says he did not commit, and is still navigating the prison system in an attempt to win his freedom. Now, Leon tells us about himself, talks about the ruling, being stonewalled by the Indiana prison court system- as he attempts to regain his freedom through PCR (Post-Conviction Relief) court.

Kite Line is a radio program devoted to prison issues around the Midwest and beyond. Behind the prison walls, a message is called a kite: whispered words, a note passed hand to hand, or a request submitted to the guards for medical care. Illicit or not, sending a kite means trusting that other people will bear it farther along till it reaches its destination. On the show, we hope to pass along words across the prison walls.
