Damita Bishop started this petition to Kim Gardner

At the age of 17 James Thomas was arrested in St.Louis for a murder that he didn't commit. They knew at that time that they had the wrong person. Instead of freeing him, they falsify documents to cover up their mistakes. It took them 2 years to book him, even though he was in their custody. His co-defendant was coerced to lie on him by the police through physical abuse. He later felt bad and filed an affidavit saying that he's innocent. He also mentions the police brutality that caused him to lie. The courts somehow lost the initial affidavit. But his co-defendant wrote another one. No matter how much evidence is submitted showing his innocence, the courts are refusing to let him go. He's been desperately reaching out to anyone who could get his story to the public. He is being held for someone else's crime and the city of St. Louis Missouri knows this! God help us! As hard as all of us are fighting to free him, they are fighting to keep him as their slave! #freeJamesThomas
