Ryan Ferguson Freed - highlights inadequacy of criminal justice system
Good news first! Ryan Ferguson was released yesterday after serving nearly 10 years of a 40-year sentence for murder. Ferguson was accused of the beating death of Kent Heitholt. This case, like many other wrongly incarceration cases, was flawed from the beginning. Said Ferguson,"To get arrested and to get charged for a crime you didn't commit is incredibly easy...but to get out of prison, it takes an army."
Execution of Joseph Franklin
The execution date for Franklin is November 20. Missourians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty will hold a vigil on Tuesday, November 19 from 8:30-9:00 pm at St. Xavier Church, Grand and Lindell Blvd. Voice your concerns about the use of the death penalty to Gov. Nixon at 573.751.3222.
