>Help stop unjust execution…..

>Not much time so brief outline of the facts:

Man sentenced to be executed at 7 pm tonight.

7 out of the 9 witnesses whose evidence led to his conviction have recanted.

This has never been tested in Court.

The conviction isn’t safe by anyone’s standards.

So where exactly is this happening?

You guessed it – the good old USA.

There’s probably not much chance of success, but if you feel as strongly about this as I do, you can do something about it

    >Hi Caron,Thanks for the heads-up. I did what was suggested, then nervously checked the news (now I feel more attached to this individual’s outcome).I take it you’ve seen the further stay:http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/7632204.stmMaybe we helped, maybe we didn’t, but it was still the right thing: good post.
