Update: Sad news: This good man died of a heart attack in federal prison on Dec. 16, 2015. He was 41. RIP: Roderick “Rudd” Walker.
Best friend Jeremy adds: “He was a jamband follower pretty much all his life, born in San Francisco to a hippie family. He is a father of 2 beautiful children (though there’s a lot of family stress understandably).”

Real people. Real families. Real harm.
Being a Deadhead, having counterculture beliefs and doing drugs is not a criminal offense, much less one deserving life without parole, not in a moral society.
