As some of my readers know, I support the movement to eliminate the death penalty in the United States. The link below will take you to a petition to be sent to California justice officials. Kenneth Clair, an innocent man, has spent 31 years on death row. He no longer faces the death penalty. Instead, he faces life in prison because the law has been manipulated to keep him there. This manipulation is not an anomaly, or a case of simple errors. It is all too common across the country. Too often, innocence, even proven innocence, does not lead to freedom for the accused, not even when the real culprit is known.
For the first time in American history, prosecutors who bend the law in order to obtain convictions and bolster their own careers are being brought to justice as part of a too-long delayed effort to end their power to act as they please, without oversight. This is just one of hundreds of cases that should lead to a convicted man being freed, and the prosecutors punished. Please sign.
