Angola Three's Robert King Looks Back

Robert King says he watched nearly three decades of his life fade away in solitary confinement inside Louisiana’s Angola prison, sometimes glimpsing the world through a small window and longing for the few hours a week he might feel the sun on his face. King, who was released in 2001 after a court reversed his conviction in the death of a fellow inmate in 1973 said, "We were caged up. I don’t think a person can go through that and come up unscathed.” King is one of three men known as the “Angola Three,” who supporters say spent decades in solitary confinement at the Louisiana state penitentiary, often referred to simply as Angola, the town in which it’s located. Now, King is closely watching the fate of the last of the three, Albert Woodfox, after a judge this week ordered his immediate release and barred the state from trying him a third time in the killing of a prison guard in 1972.
