The community support portion at North Carolina's Office of Executive Clemency will end on roughly August 12th, 2012. I am adjusting the end date of the petition accordingly so that I can vet the signatures and weed out the folks slipping past change.org's security precautions with negative comments.
There are a few I am removing tonight. This has attracted folks from the perspective of having a negative take on what is being done and the pranksters. I've held out most of it and will continue to do so, but no one is perfect.
Thanks so much for all of the support and even the debate. Debate is one of the most important aspects of communication.
I have also let the signatures go back to 1000. We have several weeks to reach that goal and we are a quarter of the way there.
A final note about all of this; I've provided some links to give some basic facts on this case, but I would ask is that the sensitivity of both sides of this be respected in comments.
