Armband Alert: 03/17/15; Clayton, MO

March 16, 2015

Please wear a black No Death Penalty! wristband tomorrow, 03/17/15, in protest of the poisoning to death of Cecil Clayton by the government of the state of Missouri.  He is being executed in revenge for the murder of Deputy Chris Castetter in 1996.

Mr. Clayton suffered a life-changing brain injury in a sawmill accident as a young man.  Surgeons had to remove nearly one fifth of his brain, including sections primarily involved in decision making and impulse control.  His IQ plummeted to 71 and he spiraled into depression and divorce.  Many medical experts for both the state and the defense have evaluated Mr. Clayton, resulting in a diagnosis of chronic brain syndrome and the unanimous opinion that he does not qualify for execution under Missouri’s state constitution nor under the Federal constitution.  This execution is being condemned throughout the country and the world.

Please keep all those involved in your thoughts.

!!!STAY!!!: 03/02/15: Gissendaner, GA

March 3, 2015

According to CBS46/AP in Atlanta, Kelly Gissendaner’s execution scheduled for 3/2/15 was stayed when “corrections officials discovered problems with the drug used for the lethal injection.”

Georgia’s supply of the drug had a clouded appearance making the Department of Corrections call for the stay.

I ask you, Governor Deal, to use your influence in our state to help stop the execution of Kelly Gissendaner. Ms. Gissendaner is scheduled to be poisoned by the government of Georgia next Monday, 03/02/15, for the 1997 murder of her husband Douglas Gissendaner.

The most important thing to know about this case is that Kelly Gissendaner did not kill her husband, as is accepted by all sides in the case.  She conspired with and assisted her boyfriend, Gregory Owen, in her husband’s murder.  However, the actual killer, Mr. Owen, is serving life in prison for committing this crime; how can justice be served by killing an accomplice with no direct role in the murder?

Former Attorney General of the United States 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 the state of Texas, the state which executes the most people. As for vengeance, that is the Lord’s, not the government’s. Please, Governor Deal, please use your moral and political power in Georgia to help stop this killing of Kelly Gissendaner. If this execution goes forward, look around this country for the black armbands worn, and the church bells tolled, in protest of this injustice.

Thank you.
