It’s Got to Be Today Folks because They Want to KILL Willie Tomorrow, Yes Tuesday May 7th, 2013
Please take a moment to send a message to Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant requesting that he allow DNA testing for Willie Manning before his MAY 7th execution date!
Last week the Mississippi Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision issued a ruling denying Willie Manning the ability to do DNA testing that could prove his innocence. Manning’s execution is scheduled for May 7th. Given that he has few options left, his lawyers have asked the governor to issue a stay and order the testing. Manning was convicted based on circumstantial evidence, and there is a rape kit, fingernail scraping and hair samples that could be tested that might prove innocence.
