Rubin “Hurricane” Carter was the number one contender for the Middleweight Title, until he was falsely accused, and convicted of murder in 1967. The case was that a witness saw Hurricane and John Artis kill the bartender, and a patron in the Lafayette Bar & Grill in Patterson, New Jersey. Though the state’s evidence depended largely on the shaky testimony of two former convicts, Carter and Artis were convicted by an all-white jury of the murders. They were sentenced to life behind bars. Carter refused to behave like other prisoners believing that he was not a criminal and he should not be treated like one. He did not eat the prison’s food and wear prison garb.
