24 Hours To Go!

24 hours from now, at 9:00 am Thursday morning, Rep Mike Turner will hold a press conference calling on the Governor to free Paul House after more than 22 years on Tennessee's death row! Rep. Turner will be joined by Joyce House, Paul's mother, a representative of Murder Victim's Families for Human Rights, and a number of other members of the Tennessee General Assembly. They will present a letter to Governor Bredesen, signed by over 25 legislators, both Democrat and Republican, abolitionists and death penalty supporters. The point is, Paul House's case transcends the partisan divide, or even the debate about the morality of capital punishment. House has been incarcerated for nearly half of his life for a crime for which the United States Supreme Court says no reasonable jury would convict him!

So come out tomorrow at 9:00 to Room 30 of Legislative Plaza at the Tennessee State Capitol and show your support for Paul House. As usual, the Nashville Scene is already on top of the story, posting an article in its online blog today! We continue to pray that the Governor will do the right thing and get House home to his mother rather than allow a very sick and innocent man to die in prison.
