National Coverage of Philip Workman Case

Check out CNN and read about Philip Workman's case on the front page of the CNN web site. National attention is now focused on Tennessee as our state prepares to execute a man who was convicted and sentenced based on perjured testimony and faulty ballistics evidence. Never mind that the May 9th execution date marks Workman's 6th execution date and will be his fourth trip to death watch. Workman already suffers from post traumatic stress disorder from his prior death watch experiences. Someone remind me again how such treatment is not "cruel and unusual?"

TCASK will have a sign holding event today at 4:00 p.m. at the TCASK office, 508 Main Street, Nashville. Sign holding is one more way to get the word out to Tennesseans that a grave injustice is soon to be carried out in our name if the Governor or the courts don't intervene. If you can't make the sign holding event, call the Governor at 741-2001 and ask that he grant clemency to Philip Workman.
