Stop Beunka Adams' execution!

Beunka Adams is a Texas death row inmate fighting for his life and his right to a fair trial. His execution date is set for April 26, 2012, if we do not act he will be executed in less then three months.

In the beginning of October 2011 Beunka Adams' final appeal was rejected by the US Supreme Court, even though there are obvious flaws in Mr. Adams' legal procedure, doubts about the fairness of his trial and also doubts about what really happened that unfortunate day of a robbery back in 2002 in Rusk, Texas, USA.

Beunka Adams has repeatedly expressed his deepest regrets for taking part in the robbery. Mr. Adams is the father of three children and a healthy young man that can be a great asset to society in the future.

We are urging Texas authorities to stop the execution of Beunka Adams and to commute his death sentence.

      A father should never be executed. Life without parole is just and does far better than the death penalty.

      REPORT THIS COMMENT:

      The death penalty has proven to be ineffective as a deterent to crime; it is far more expensive to prosecute a death penalty case than a non-capital case; it is unfairly implemented; and there is always the risk, if not the certainty given that at least 138 death row prisoners have been exonerated, that innocent persons will be executed.
