Shouting From the Rooftops

In 2006, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia wrote that there has not been "a single case - not one - in which it is clear that a person was executed for a crime he did not commit. If such an event had occurred in recent years, we would not have to hunt for it; the innocent's name would be shouted from the rooftops."

Please check out the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty's campaign to shout from the rooftops the name of Cameron Todd Willingham as well as our opposition to the continued risk of executing the innocent in our country. With alternatives like life without parole, the risk of executing an innocent person is one we do not have to take.

Please watch the video clip available on the site, featuring a number of death row exonerees, including Ray Krone, who will be speaking at Belmont University in Nashville in December.
Comments :
Sign the petition to Governor Rick Perry and the State of Texas to acknowledge that the fire in the Cameron Todd Willingham case was not arson, therefore no crime was committed and on February 17, 2004, Texas executed an innocent man.

We plan to deliver the petition signatures to Perry at the 10th Annual March to Abolish the Death Penalty on October 24, 2009 at the Texas Capitol in Austin.
