         Cases I have worked on since the beginning are Texas nationally known case of Cameron Todd Willingham (a father who lost his children in a fire and was wrongfully executed for it happening) and Troy Davis in Georgia who shall most likely remain the most notable case of execution ever. Former FBI Director Freeh, former President Jimmy Carter and even the Pope petitioned for a stay assisted by 600,000 signatures. Despite the evidences of witnesses recanting their testimony in the Davis case and the one witness remaining being the purported one who did it - they still murdered Troy Davis.

          Now, I am one of the editors of this quest to Abolish the Death Penalty here on Daily Kos and what to help get more involved - in a timely manner. Even though my residence is Oklahoma, I was not involved in the Shaun Stemple case until just days before his state sponsered murder. I want to make sure this does not happen again.

       Please assist me with any research you may have? This includes any current cases, any past cases and any issues or legislation you feel is germane.

        We can make a difference.

       Just this past week, we jumped on board the Trayvon Martin (17 year old) who was murdered by a neighborhood watch captain. The police did not arrest the white Zimmerman who confessed that he shot and killed the 17 year old Trayvon who most believe was picked on by Zimmerman - solely due to racial bias. The petition had 25,000 signatures on it, though one month had passed by with No arrest. Now it has 500,000 signatures and the FBI & DOJ are stepping in due to the national news campaign since the new media push on the story.

      Every little bit helps and it would be a wonderful thing to be able to boast in your rocking chair on a porch one day - that you were part of the campaign efforts to Abolish the Death Penalty nationwide. If we build up enough support, we may even be able to get President Obama, once re elected - to make it federal law.

      If you believe it is possible - YES WE CAN.

      Please put in the comments any and all information you think I should look at?

              It will take me some time - but I will get to all of them - I promise!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
