HELP STOP VIRGINIA’S 103rd EXECUTION – February 19th, 2009

2009 does not need to be another banner year for Virginia Executions- we can all help stop them.

There will be a protest on Broad Street in Richmond on Thursday February 19th from 4-6 p.m. at the intersection of Broad and 11th (outside of the Governor’s office). Please come help show that Virginians are not for the Death Penalty. We will have some signs but feel free to bring your own. Bring your phones too so we can call the Governor’s office to ask him to stop the execution.

If the sentence is not commuted, there will also be a vigil outside of the prison where the execution is taking place that night. Details are at the bottom of this article.

Edward Nathaniel Bell is scheduled to be killed by the Commonwealth of Virginia at 9 p.m. on February 19th, 2009 for the shooting death of Sgt. Ricky L. Timbrook, 32, from the Winchester police Department during a late evening police chase on Oct. 29, 1999.

At a time when most of the country is turning away from the death penalty, Virginia has already scheduled her first execution of 2009. We are second only to Texas in the number of prisoners killed, and if this scheduled execution isn’t halted, Bell will be the 103rd person killed by the Commonwealth since 1977. Please take a few minutes to say “Enough!” and help us fix this broken system.

Please take one or more of the following actions – Details below: Continue reading
