PLEASE READ- So here's the thing, I'm not hugely vocal about politics b/c I'm ashamed to say I'm not educated enough on them to feel comfortable shouting my views, so I stick to my lane of don't be a dick, be loving over anything else. I will speak up when something seems anti-human not to. I pride myself on being human, albeit a messy, passionate, sometimes overly emotional one at times still trying to keep it REAL none the less. Once again I feel broken hearted and moved to say something about this situation. I don't know if it's b/c I've been listening to @itsjasonflom
interview exorneries on @wrongfulconviction
but this story is breaking me.
is scheduled to be executed on Tue 22nd (tomorrow) at 7pm EST. However, there is DNA evidence suggesting he is #innocent.
Those who have followed me for long enough can guess what my feelings on the death penalty are, but that aside, how is it legal to put a man to death knowing that DNA could prove him innocent? Without explanation the courts denied his appeal to present the new evidence that should see him #exonerated,
instead of executed. @ericgreitens
, the Govenor of Missouri can override the courts decision but he is silent...
I don't get it and once again I feel utterly helpless. I've been obnoxious in reaching out to anyone I can think of, spamming my twitter, researching & attempting to help @25park
get something to bring this man a tiny ray of hope. Many have signed the petition on change.org (link in bio) but we need more...use social media to do good, not just post about where we go and who we're with (🙋🏽guilty)
is a whole other level... you may not like her style but she has a heart bigger than any I've seen and it beats heavily and passionately for those suffering and unjustly treated. Check her IG to see more, but she felt so moved after hearing his story that she flew to Missouri to see what she could do to help, met with Marcellus and his lawyers and son.
I'm not sure what more I can do tonight except say PLEASE sign the petition, tweet, email, tag, regram or whatever you want, but let's not let Marcellus be killed without attempting to do something. #stoptheexecution
