Reginald Clemons Update



Supporters,

We've all been counting down the days--and yes, it's past June 1. When I visited with Reggie last week, he was unfazed by the three week lapse saying. "I think Judge Manners is looking very carefully over all the evidence. And there's a lot of it."

Let's take our cue from Reggie, grounded in the reality that's he has lived for over 20 years, and continue to be patient and hopeful. When the Justice for Reggie Campaign hears anything from Judge Manner, we'll let you know.

------------------------------------

April 4 is the 44th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King's assassination. It is also the 22nd anniversary of the Chain of Rocks Bridge tragedy. The Justice for Reggie Campaign has not planned any formal activities to commemorate that day. We ask that you remember the lives of the young people and their families who were impacted that day. Robin and Julie Kerry lost their lives and will never have the future they dreamed of and that their parents hoped for. As for the defendants in the case: Marlin Gray has been executed, Tony Richardson is destined to spend the rest of his life behind bars; Daniel Winfrey spent 15 years in prison; and Reginald Clemons continues to be relentless in his pursuit of justice. 

Let us recommit ourselves to providing young people with all the opportunities to achieve greatness and to rehabilitate a broken criminal justice system that often fails both victims and defendants. Remember Dr. King's words, "the arc of the moral universe ilong, but it bends toward justice." A civilized society has the responsibility of putting its hand on that arc and collectively bending it if we want to see experience a just and peaceful world.
