In this article I want to talk about Alabaman Bob Crane and Alabamas Bob Crane.
Bob Crane’s work as a lawyer and politician has been controversial, particularly his role in the death of a Black man named Alonzo Smith.
Crane, who died in 2008, was accused of killing Smith after he shot him in the back while trying to take him into custody for a drug offense.
Smith was also accused of stealing from a drug dealer, and Crane was found guilty of murder.
Alabaman bob crane is a black man.
He was born in Alabaster, Arkansas, and grew up in rural Arkansas.
After graduating from high school in 1962, Bob Crane moved to Washington, D.C. During his first year of college, he attended a law school in Washington, DC, where he studied law and was later assigned to the National Lawyers Guild.
In 1974, Bob became a state prosecutor.
It was there that Bob Crane became familiar with the case of Alonzo Smith, who was killed in a car crash in 1968.
When the victim was found, his car had broken down.
His car was later found parked on the side of the road with its window smashed out.
A jury convicted Crane of murder, and he was sentenced to life in prison.
That was not the end of his problems.
Several years later, Alonzzo Smith’s killer, George “Bubba” Lee, was released from prison and started a drug racket.
By 1977, the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) had established a program for prisoners to be sent to prison in Arkansas, but it was not well received by the inmates.
The BOP was also concerned that inmates could become violent and that a prisoner who became violent would become a violent inmate again, so the BOP established a new program in Arkansas called the “Arkansas Project.”
The Arkansas Project involved the placement of prisoners in prisons, and the state sent out an advisory to the Bop on how to handle the program.
At the same time, the BOPS had established an investigation program that looked into allegations of violent inmate behavior.
Among the first inmates sent to the prison in the Arkansas Project was the convicted murderer of Alenzo Smith, Bob Cranley.
Bureau of Prison staff member, Joe Hickey, who oversaw the Arkansas program, was a member of the Arkansas Commission on Correctional Management (ACCM).
The commission investigated allegations that inmates at the Arkansas Prison were not properly supervised.
ACCM staff members met with the prisoners, who told them about the ACCM’s investigations.
On January 26, 1980, Crane was transferred from the prison to the jail in the town of West Memphis.
“They had a new guard, and I don’t know what happened,” one inmate, George Smith, told the West Memphis Star.
“He was in his underwear, he was in the shower, he had his shirt on.
They put a shirt over his head, and they put handcuffs on him.
And they put him in a cell with a new prison guard, George Jones.
And then they put the new guard in the cell and they brought him in there.
They put him up in a cage.
He was there for two weeks.
And then he was brought out.
He had his handcuffs off and he sat on the floor.
And he had a piece of bread.
They brought him to the [security] office and they cut him open.
He didn’t know how much he had.
They cut him.
They were holding a knife.
They pulled out a knife and they slit his throat.
But the new guards weren’t happy with the fact that the old guards had not killed Bob Crane, and so they put in a new set of guards.”
The prison had no guard to check on Crane, who had been transferred.
At the end, he walked out and killed Smith.
