April 20, 2014

Here are copies of the e-mails I sent to people in states with scheduled executions asking them to intervene. Please e-mail, phone or fax appeals of your own. You are welcome to cut & paste.

I ask you, Governor Fallin, to stop your state’s execution of Charles Warner.  Mr. Warner is scheduled to be poisoned by the government of Oklahoma next Tuesday, 04/22/14, for the 1997 murder of Adriana Waller, the 11 month old child of his girlfriend.

Regardless of the particulars of this case, Governor Fallin, a court has told you that your state’s refusal to reveal the provisioning details of the poisons you administer for lethal injections is not lawful.   As the chief executive of Oklahoma you must immediately halt all executions in your state until the legal issues are resolved.

Former Attorney General of the United States of America Janet Reno, as well as myriads of scholars, can find no evidence that the death penalty deters capital crimes. In fact, the warden of the famous Sing Sing prison believes that the death penalty exacerbates the violence in his facility by setting an example of cold-blooded killing. Recent studies show that the largest increase in capital crimes is in Texas, the state which executes the most people. As for vengeance, that is the Lord’s, not the government’s.

Please, Governor Fallin, stop this killing of Charles Warner.  If this execution goes forward, look around this country for the black bands worn and the church bells tolled in protest of this injustice.

Thank you.

I ask you, Governor Scott, to stop your state’s execution of Robert Hendrix. Mr. Hendrix is scheduled to be poisoned by the government of Florida next Wednesday, 04/23/14, for the 1990 murders of Elmer and Susan Scott.

Firstly, national organizations have documented twenty four death row inmates in Florida that are provably innocent, far more than any other state.  Secondly, Florida changed recently to a single drug lethal injection protocol that has never been shown to kill without excruciating pain and suffering.  In fact, the victim of a recent execution in Ohio using the same protocol took thirty minutes to die, all the while writhing in apparent agony.  Your state’s method of execution defies the Federal constitution’s prohibition of ‘cruel and unusual punishment’.  Governor Scott, you must cancel this execution until you can bring your state into compliance with the laws of our great nation.

I ask you, Governor Nixon, to stop your state’s execution of William Rousan.  Mr. Rousan is scheduled to be poisoned by the government of Oklahoma next Wednesday, 04/23/14, for the 1993 murder of Charles Lewis during a burglary.

Regardless of the particulars of this case, Governor Nixon, your state’s refusal to reveal the provisioning details of the poisons you administer for lethal injections is not lawful.  Three judges on the United States Supreme Court would have granted Mr. Rousan a stay of execution until your state grants him the right to know how the poisons you will use to kill were acquired and handled.  As the chief executive of Missouri you must immediately halt all executions in your state until the legal issues are resolved.

From CNN.com late last night:

The U.S. Supreme Court has granted a stay of execution for Missouri death row inmate Herbert Smulls.  Smulls was scheduled to die early Wednesday, after Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon denied him clemency.  But late Tuesday night, the U.S. Supreme Court intervened.

The appeal was submitted on the basis of the state’s refusal to disclose details of their source for the executions poisons.

Please wear a black ‘No Death Penalty’ wrist band today, 01/22/14, in protest of the poisoning to death of Edgar Tamayo by the government of the state of Texas for the 1994 murder of Houston police officer Guy Gaddis.  Texas is ignoring supplications from nations world-wide to cancel this execution because Mr. Tamayo was never informed of his right to consular representation at his arrest, as required by international laws and treaties.

Please wear a black ‘No Death Penalty’ wrist band tomorrow, 01/23/14, in protest of the poisoning to death of Kenneth Hogan by the government of the state of Oklahoma for the 1998 murder of Lisa Rene Stanley.

Please keep in your thoughts the families of all those concerned in these tragedies.

I ask you, Governor Perry, to stop your state’s execution of Edgar Tamayo. Mr. Tamayo is scheduled to be poisoned by the government of Texas next Wednesday, 01/22/2014, for the 1994 murder of Houston police officer Guy Gaddis.

Edgar Tamayo is a Mexican national and Texas has been implored by senior officials of this country and abroad to cancel this execution.  Mr. Tamayo, along with over fifty other Mexican nationals, is on death row despite never having been informed of his rights under both national and international laws to legal consultation with his embassy at his arrest.  Additionally, in 2008 psychologists diagnosed him as ‘mildly mentally retarded’, making him ineligible for execution under rulings from the United States Supreme Court.  Governor Perry, you must stay this of execution of Edgar Tamayo until so your state can conform to the laws our country and our international treaty obligations.

In fact, the warden of the famous Sing Sing prison believes that the death penalty exacerbates the violence in his facility by setting an example of cold-blooded killing. Recent studies show that the largest increase in capital crimes is in the state of Texas, the state which executes the most people. As for vengeance, that is the Lord’s, not the government’s.

I ask you, Governor Fallon, to stop your state’s execution of Kenneth Hogan.  Mr. Hogan is scheduled to be poisoned by the government of the state of Oklahoma next Thursday, 01/23/2014, for the 1998 murder of Lisa Rene Stanley.

Mr. Hogan and his friend Ms. Stanley were enjoying a marijuana smoking session when an argument started up.  Escalated by their inebriation the altercation ended with Mr. Hogan stabbing Ms. Stanley to death in what he describes as self-defense.  The drug use rendered both of them incapable of controlling their behavior and thus not responsible for the outcome.  Kenneth Hogan needs treatment for his drug abuse, not poisoning to death.  Please, Governor Henry, step in now to allow Kenneth Hogan to get the medical treatment he needs.
