As I have been running the #JusticeForFelix campaign, I have become aware of something. Well intentioned petitions tend to wither and die on the vine. One may have great intentions in creating or signing a petition, but after a period of time, the interest wanes and the cause becomes forgotten. This page will serve as an attempt to keep awareness of these efforts, on the front burner.
As new petitions are posted and featured on the Scroll Page, they will be added here as well. As petitions close, they will be removed. It is my hope, that we can keep tabs on the progress of our petitions, and report on the results with more regularity.
In September, we published a petition for a stay of execution for death row inmate Terrence Williams. Williams was sentenced to die for killing the man who raped him repeatedly, all through his childhood. That petition is now closed, and it is my understanding that it was successful, and that Pennsylvania has agreed to reexamine the case. Wouldn’t it be tragic however, if he had gone to his execution, and none of us knew it? What if we all signed that petition, but nobody followed up and learned the outcome? That is the purpose of this page. To provide a place where these petitions can live a bit longer than their normal FaceBook life cycle.
By the way, Felix’s petition is still live, and we still need at least 700 signatures. His Clemency trial is in the preparation stage right now. By the time the attorneys are ready to do what they have to do, we really need to have those signatures. Felix has been in prison for 30 years – for a crime he did not commit. Can you live with that?
