    Default Boxer Hurricane Carter dies at 76

    Rubin 'Hurricane' Carter Dead -- Boxer Dies at Age 76 | TMZ.com

    BOXER HURRICANE CARTER


    DIES AT AGE 76


    Boxer Rubin "Hurricane" Carter -- whose wrongful murder conviction in the '60s became an international symbol for racial injustice -- has died.

    Carter died in his sleep Sunday at his home in Toronto where he had been getting treatments for prostate cancer ... according to reports.

    Carter spent 20 years in jail for a wrongful murder conviction -- but he maintained his innocence the entire time



    Police arrested Carter in '66 for a triple homicide ... however, none of the eyewitnesses identified Carter as the shooter. Carter was tried and convicted twice -- but after the second conviction was overturned in 1985, prosecutors gave up.

    Bob Dylan even wrote a song about the trial called, "Hurricane."

    The boxer's life story was made into a movie in 1999 called "The Hurricane" and he was played by Denzel Washington. The actor was nominated for an Oscar for the role.



    He was 76.

    At least he died free. I know many in the police world thought he should have stayed behind bars, but I almost cried when they let him go - he was railroaded by a bunch of racist cops, pure and simple. RIP.

    Complex guy, complex situations in his life. When he was 'on' a wrecking machine as a fighter, but he wasn't always 'on'.

    Carter's boxing high point.
