If Black Lives truly Matters, & we are for the Truth and Justice then we'd have an EMERGENCY ASSEMBLY at the Supreme Court, Governors Mansion in Columbia, South Carolina and at the place of Incarceration Ridgeland, South Carolina to right the injustice that happened Almost 17 yrs ago in Greenville, S.C. to Curtis L Price who was falsely accused and unconstitutionally convicted of an armed robbery he had nothing to do with AND SENTENCED TO 35yrs (Max out 2034!)
Please sign & share this petition to exonerate Curtis Price of these false crimes, so that he can finally receive justice after 16 years 11 months 18 days of being falsely imprisoned.
The intent of this petition is to instruct the Governor, Supreme Court, and or Attorney General of South Carolina to act on behalf of the People and begin the process of righting the wrongs done to an innocent man.
35 Years for 1 lb. of Marijuana!!!
In 2003, Curtis Price (then 27 father of two young sons 9 & 7) was falsely accused of an armed robbery of an Applebee's he had never set foot in. All because his then girlfriend kept driving as he released several hand fulls of marijuana out the window during the chase. Had he known that the police were looking for an armed robbery suspect he would have gladly pulled over to clear up the mistaken identity.
The Greenville P.D. made a huge error in pursuing the wrong man. To make matters worse, once they discovered the mix up, they brutalized him, instead of acknowledging that they had the wrong man. Beating & tasing him until he was unconscious. Curtis awoke to find himself stripped NAKED and handcuffed in the back of an ambulance on his way to the hospital!
Curtis was arrested & indicted for armed robbery with a deadly weapon: a handgun, pointing a firearm & use of a weapon. The trial judge threw out the pointing a firearm, being that the State failed to introduce any weapon other than a plastic toy gun! So the failure to produce a firearm at trial should have given the judge grounds to dismiss the case but being that Curtis is a 6'3" dark-skinned Black male who had almost 2ft. of locks on his head, whose girlfriend was a young white woman he was not allowed to get a fair trial.
The State changed their story from an armed robbery with a DEADLY WEAPON to armed robbery with a toy gun, without a Grand Jury! A Violation of Due Process! The indictment was altered at trial; a violation of the both constitutions (South Carolina & The United States).
Curtis has been looking forward to holding his grandchildren ever since the 1st was born 6 years ago. It's been his dream to enjoy the sounds of family celebrating his Home Coming but has been suffering (needlessly) locked down due to the Deadliest Prison riot in America in the last 25 yrs (https://youtu.be/uxedbhkb7RA ) which happened over 2 years ago, where 7 (six so called blackmen and one so called whiteman) lives could and should have been saved and would have been saved had the correctional officers recognized the Humanity of the individuals they stood and watched die.
Prisons are now even MORE DANGEROUS due the threat of COVID-19!
The lack of recognizing Human Rights and the need for humane treatment of people in prison/jail.
We The People must demand Justice be done in the form of a full pardon to begin the exoneration process!
This is another tragic case of Racial Profiling, Police Brutality, over sentencing, the criminalization of Marijuana and corruption in high places: Offices & Agencies of Public Trust.
Your help is needed and greatly appreciated. Will you help free an innocent man who has endured almost 17yrs of torture? Your signature will make a difference. Help make this wrong done, right!
