What is a Political Prisoner?

JOKOCollective joins with Black August L.A. in observance of Black August.
 We stand in solidarity with activists who, in the course of their dynamic resistance work, have sacrificed their personal freedom 
& been made subject to the unchecked brutality of the U.S. prison system.  
Do common definitions for terms like  political prisoner & prisoner of war
-whether provided by our allies or opponents- adequately describe the overall phenomena? 
 Or, must they be stretched, modified & qualified to become more accurate & therefore, more actionable?
