Stop the Execution of a Framed Man: Clemency for Kevin Cooper


The LATimes and the NYTimes have both run opinion pieces that open with this line: "The state of California may be about to execute an innocent man."

Both papers quote the dissenting opinion of of Judge William Fletcher of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Judge Fletcher is one of five justices on the ninth circuit court of appeals who thinks Kevin Cooper was more likely than not framed by police. His case includes clear evidence of a frame-up, including his blood planted on evidence by police officers, but procedural hang-ups have prevented him from ever making a full case in court. But, unless Governor Schwarzenegger grants him clemency, he'll be executed.

Write Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and tell him to offer clemency to Kevin Cooper.
