05/22/19 -- Families Sue After Price Sentencing

May 22, 2019

NEW YORK — The families of two victims of a Humanis First attack on FCI Fort Dix in New Jersey on June 15, 2012 are suing the State of New York in light of the final sentencing of Odessa Price. The attack on Fort Dix was a part of the crimes against humanity that former Humanis First associate Odessa Price was charged with in March. At the end of a lengthy trial as part of the second round of war crimes tribunals in Albany, NY Price was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole. The families of Lawrence Penn, a civilian volunteer at Fort Dix and USMC Second Lieutenant Aimee Bowen are suing the state of New York for negligence.

Kelly Bowen, mother of Lieutenant Aimee Bowen spoke to the press just after announcement of the civil suit was made. "We aren't the only families who feel justice was not served," Bowen said to a small gathering of press outside of the Albany County Supreme Court where Price's trial was held. "A psychopathic killer who pleaded guilty to the murder of my daughter, to the murder of Lawrence Penn, who pleaded guilty to a host of inhuman acts was allowed to live." Bowen went on to say, "America has hung criminals for less. The Albany Trials were intended to give us justice, to give the American people a sense of closure. Where is our closure? Where is my justice?"

Price, who confessed to working with both the Company and the Commonwealth Institute, was moved to the Plum Island SLC-Expressive Center where she will serve out her sentence in a work-release program for the US government. Opponents of the controversial sentencing, like Bowen, are likening her punishment to the asylum granted by the United States to surrendered Nazi scientists at the end of World War II.

In a statement made this morning, 2020 Presidential candidate Frederick Medina told reporters, "It's an abominable thing, what the Praeger administration is allowing to happen across the country. People — killers — are being offered amnesty for the crimes they committed against the American people. Terrorists who killed thousands, be they Odessa Price or more populist terrorists like members of Pariah or Phoenix, are allowed to face limited or in many cases no charges for their wrongdoings. I think the American people deserve better."

It is yet uncertain whether the state of New York will hear this case, but the likelihood of it being successful is low, according to attorneys who spoke to the Times.
