Because freedom can't protect itself
Why shouldn't residents from other states be able to send emails to the Mississippi governor through the link above?
Just because it's happening in Mississippi, doesn't mean that voices from outside the state are unhelpful. The more opposition to the death penalty, the better. Right?
When you click on any of the links to take action, then fill out the letter to the governor, the form rejects your letter if you are not from Mississippi. How can you help/take action if you are not from Mississippi?
How can you help if you are not from Mississippi?
I filled out the letter to the governor, using the form on your site, after clicking through to "take action," but the form rejects your response if you are not from Mississippi.
This man deserves the right to have the DNA tested in this case to prove if he is innocent or not. Please do not let this execution go through without giving him his RIGHT to be cleared or not. EVERYONE deserves to be given a fair trial and he did not seem to get one. So many people have come forward and claimed they made mistakes or lied and still his execution is on going?? What a shame, this justice system is totally messed up. If you can't grant this stay of execution, I will have lost ALL faith in the government and justice system.
To the others who want to help, but don't live in Mississippi I've been sending this message to all of my FB friends.
"Please call Governor Bryant's office to request clemency for Willie Manning 601-359-3150. Let's light his phone up all day so he knows that we're not turning a blind eye to this injustice!!! "

Email the Governor of Mississippi:
in america in certain states, in certain towns & cities, if you are white you are presumed innocent until proven guilty, but if you are black or brown you are guilty until proven innocent and even then, its up to the judge whether or not he will allow his racism to determine the outcome of an accused but innocent black man.
