Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison


The Board meeting was delayed, however when it took place topics for discussion were the European Commission Press Release and the overturning of Magwood's death sentence. Could it be that Santa is trying to come to Holman after all? Of course we are all encouraged by both of these pieces of news, but have just one additional request for Santa: Could you please bring us Justice here in Alabama, so that Esther can stop saying: "And then there is Alabama."

Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison 11.30.11

Dec

The men were very interested to learn about the latest development with the lethal injection drug in Nebraska and wondered whether the middle man who had diverted the drug could be sued by the company.(see below) As always, we questioned the source of Alabama's lethal injection drugs.


One of the Board members was pleased to report that EJI has taken on his appeals. As Alabama is the only state, which does not provide postconviction legal assistance finding pro-bono representation is a huge issue for the men.


See you next week! Esther

Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison 11.23.11

Today the following motion was made, seconded and approved by all present:


MOTION


The Board of Project Hope respectfully suggests that Governor Kitzhaber of OR and Governor Bentley of Al switch states. We believe that not only could AL greatly benefit from the leadership of a Governor who pronounced the death penalty morally wrong and unjustly administered, but it would save our governor from being repeatedly put in the position of making choices, which one would hope he too would come to regret.

Mobile Press, Luther Strange, Alabama Prisons Face Tough Choices

Nov
13

Luther Strange's recommendation that one way of appearing tough on crime while dealing with prison overcrowding is to execute death row inmates faster brings two questions to mind: 1) is he suggesting that death row prisoners be denied their constitutional right to appeals? 2) As in Alabama there is no delay between a death row prisoner's denial of his final appeal and the A.G.'s Office requesting an execution date from the Alabama Supreme Court what is he talking about? Surely not Alabama?

(MOBILE) PRESS-REGISTER - Luther Strange: Alabama prisons face 'tough choices.'
