Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison
We are all trying to process Derrick's execution the best we can and do not understand why the Governor did not listen to Judge Little's request to commute Derrick's sentence. A copy of Judge Little's letter has been posted on the bulletin board at Holman. We are in mourning and supporting each other the best we can. I did share the outcome of the poll. See you next week!

How Many Innocent People Have to Die, Birmingham News

Sep
26

You know we've killed innocent people. We have. In the history of Alabama's death penalty, you know innocent people have died. Been hung, electrocuted, poisoned to death. Probably many. A number of Death Row inmates have been released in recent years after they were found to be not guilty of the crimes they were accused of. How did they get on Death Row in the first place? How many didn't get saved and slipped through the cracks and were executed? By you. By me.

Laurence Meylemans to the Governor on behalf of Christopher T. Johnson

Sep

   "I urge you to stop all state killing, including the execution of Christopher T. Johnson on October 20. We cannot be complicit in any form of state killing! Not in our name!

The judicial system has on several ocasions allowed the execution of people who possibly, and in some cases certainly, were innocent. This system does not provide citizens the right to legal security and fair trial. Execute Justice not People ! Sincerely..."

Please read Petition for Execution at www.eji.org (see below)or on our facebook page Project Hope to Abolish the Death Penalty in Alabama to gain additional insight into the horrific miscarriage of justice that occurred once more with Derrick Mason's execution. It was far from the first and will not be the last time this happened in Alabama. It is our duty not to forget and to allow their deaths to have been in vain.
