Re: Starving for Justice
Please receive my wholehearted support in your effort to abolish the death penalty. I firmly believe nobody has the right to end another human being's life, for any reason whatsoever.
Allow me to recall the heartrending case of Timothy Evans. Mr. Evans was hung in England in 1950 for supposedly killing his wife and baby daughter, Geraldine. He happened to be the neighbor of notorious serial killer John Christie and was posthumously pardoned after police found both Mr. Evan's wife and daughter buried beneath the floorboards of Christie's house. Imagine the excruciating anguish suffered by this innocent man wrongly put to death for murdering the two people he probably loved most in the entire world.
