Circle of Family, Friends and Supporters of Naquarn


INDICTMENT #90949/95


The Circle of Family Friends and Supporters for Bruce(Naquarn)Brown is the core group surrounding Bruce(Naquarn) Brown, working and advocating for the survival of his livelihood while imprisoned upon a conviction and sentence of 51 1/3 years to life in prison for a crime predicated upon a falsehood. Bruce(Naquarn)Brown, like many other prisoners being housed in Prison (warehouse) Industrial complexes across the globe, is innocent of the charged crime. Because of his (indigence), being poor, black and male, he suffers from the effective legal and/or political representation which has the means to over-turn such conviction.


HISTORY of CASE:  Who Is Naquarn

Naquarn is a captured (prisoner) currently held within the confines of the New York State Prison Industrial Complex.  Identified as Bruce Brown, 96A7932, Naquarn is from Hempstead, Long Island,  New York.  He was raised in Washington D.C. and Portsmouth,VA., for a number of years prior to being reconnected and further raised by his father, Mr.John Bruce Brown in the state of New York.  It is known from family reports that Naquarn is a direct descendant of the late John Brown(1800-1859), The Abolitionist. 

 Naquarn is being forced to the conditions of prison as a result of being found guilty of a crime that he did not commit and is now serving a sentence of life.


The imposition of life imprisonment came on the heels of a trial which found a verdict of guilty for causing the death of two other men from the community that they called home. Such conviction was found despite the many inconsistencies of the testimony of alleged "witnesses".  The defense pointed out these witnesses were paid polices informers and jail house informers.  The alleged "co-defendant"  was targeted by police to be beaten and tortured into confessing to the crime which also implicated Naquarn. During the earlier pre-trial stages it was discovered that the very attorney who ostensibly represented Naquarn had sat in on a discussion with an alleged witness as he was being coerced by the D.A. to testify against Naquarn.The initial stages of this deceptive process were not discovered until much later.During a scheduled hearing, and shortly after the above mentioned attorney(John Lewis) had made it known that he would no longer be the attorney at the defense table, Naquarn discovered that the attorney had in fact advanced his position of defense attorney to that of district attorney,based on his position to withholding exculpatory information that would prove further the innocence of Naquarn.The defense requested a hearing into the facts above, extracted from John Lewis during examination.MR.JOHN LEWIS withheld information from BRUCE BROWN and the defense.John Lewis was directed to do this by the major offense bureau MR.FRED KLINE.






Is the topic of discussion here at the Circle of Family,FRIENDS and Supporters for BRUCE BROWN, and we encourage your input for discussion, as a means to educate us all to the impact of ineffective criminal justice laws and policie.Because of our concern for BRUCE(NAQUARN)BROWN,we built a circle of family,friends and supporters, educating ourselves to the misfortune of Naquarn being criminalized and ultimatedly incarcerated for a crime he did not commit.In doing so we have worked around those issues and have learned more about the connections between jails, jobs, poverty, racism, sexism, class, war and political representation.


A) "Criminalization and Incarceration" is the issue but, how do you define these terms and,will this effect you,your love ones and friends.Furthermore,what do you think is best done to educate against criminalization and incarceration.

People vs.Bruce Brown



A.) Respectfully ask that the Nassau County District Attorney,in the interest of justice be re-open the above mentioned case for forensic testing of evidence which has the potential to demonstrate the innocence of Bruce Brown.the evidence requesting to be forensically tested is in the custody of Nassau County judicial department;to wit, one beige carrhart coat,to be tested for the presence of gun powder,gun flash/residue.Such testing will demonstrate that Bruce Brown is not the shooter of the weapon used in the crime.Also requesting;Forensic testing and testimony from the autopsy report in this case, which will reveal that no victim was sprayed in the face or eyes with an alleged insecticide spray, which clearly demonstrates the witness statements and testimony to be false.



B.) An Opportunity forgoing Constitutional violations mention below to be heard and corrected:
