Help save an innocent man

    An innocent man, Rodney Reed, is due to be executed in Texas on the 20th.

    Please sign the petition on Free Rodney Reed whether you're convinced he's innocent, or just have doubts about his case. Better to postpone an execution and then find out he was guilty, than to execute him and then find out he was innocent.

    I've researched the case, and I understand the science involved, and how it does not incriminate him.

    Time's running out. Please help if you're so inclined.

    [Mods, I know this belongs in P&CA. I put it here for greater exposure, as many people--myself included--rarely or never go there.]

    Thanks everyone, and I totally understand it being moved here, so no apologies needed. :)

    I actually learned about this case on Dr Phil, a show I don't normally watch; its facts so angered me that I felt compelled to dig deeper, and I've read a ton on it so far, and every bit of it reinforces my belief that Reed is innocent.

    Ironically, I was living in Texas at the time of this crime, but way up north. I don't recall hearing about it at all.

    If you're into such things and you feel inclined to do so, please spread the petition link around on social media, etc. It was at about 2.5M signatures last night, of its new goal of 3M. A LOT of people feel strongly about this.

    Thanks, root. On both counts. :)

    That's a very informative article, and I urge all to read it if you're not up on this case. I also suggest finding the Dr Phil episode and watching it.

    Watch the Dr Phil show, which includes Reed himself, and feel your blood start boiling. :mad:
    I wished that, too--but we don't want any cries of foul play, so let's stick to one each!

    Honestly, I had forgotten until your earlier post refreshed my memory.
    I appreciate that input. It's appalling to me but, as a layperson, I don't know what that's worth. Hearing it from an expert means a lot. :)
    Just a reminder that the website has everything one could need to easily contact the relevant players. I encourage anyone who wants to make more of an impact to go there and use its info to make contact.
    That just made me smile. Thanks, root, you have a great weekend, too.

    Update: an indefinite stay of execution was issued today!

    The millions of voices of people who've called, written, and signed petitions have been heard.

    Stay tuned, as this is not the end of the story...

    I got the same e-mail! It was so uplifting reading it.

    I *know* in my gut that the fiance did it. Just wait...just wait until that day when the DNA evidence is understood correctly by the moron prosecutors, and they announce they've arrested the real killer.

    I know. But there have been exceptions, especially where scientific fact is involved.

    Of course, I'm thinking of here in California...not Texas...
