Hi, I'm posting to gather support for a man who'll be put to death on Tuesday, September 23rd if no one helps to stop the execution and give him another trial. He was convicted in 1991 for a crime he claims he did not commit, and for which there is no physical evidence against him. His conviction was based totally on unsure eyewitness accounts, and since the original trial, all but three of his witnesses have either recanted or contradicted their testimonies.
I know I can't really avoid a heated debate about the death penalty or the case itself, but all I'm asking you to do is sign up and send the pre-made email to the State Board of Pardons and Parole or, of course, send a personalized email. You could even edit the pre-made if you don't have time for an original. Takes 5 minutes!
I don't have a blog/myspace/facebook, so I thought this would be the best way to bring attention to the issue. Please help! It would be a terrible shame for someone to be put to death without sufficient evidence.
Please reply if you've taken action.
