Death Penalty: Part Deux

The linked post is describes a black man, Corey Maye, on death row in Mississippi. The circumstances make as good an argument against the death penalty at you will find. I like to think that white racism is not alive and well in our country but it appears it may well be in Mississippi.

The Hollywood liberals need to forget about Tookie Williams and his heinous crimes and take up the cause of Corey Maye.

TalkLeft urges everyone to publicize Corey Maye's plight. So do I.

More here at the Agitator.

Thanks to Instapundit.

Comments:
I recall first reading the details of Cory Maye's case and having a strong sense of "There but for the grace of God go I." It seems to me that if someone busted into my house in the middle of the night, unidentified, then I too might take exteme measures to protect those I love.

Laura Denyes, myself, and some like minded people have been working on a petition asking or Cory Maye's release. We've tried to word the petition in a manner that conservatives, libertarians and liberals would all feel comfortable signing it. We have it up now here:

We hope to bring attention to the case of Cory Maye. At some point this spring, we intend to print this out and mail it to the Governor of Mississippi and to all the major newspapers.
