I Do Not Believe In Homicide

Governor Bredesen,

I do not believe that under any circumstances homicide is acceptable.
It has come to my attention that “The death certificate of an executed person lists the cause of death as homicide.” I, as a citizen of Nashville and the state of Tennessee, can not stand silently by and allow homicide to go on, sanctioned by the state, especially in a situation were the person, Philip Workman, is possibly innocent.

I ask that you please grant Clemency to Philip Workman, or at least continue the moratorium until further investigation can be made.

Thank You for your time and wisdom in this decision.

Above is the email I sent to Governor Phil Bredesen, something you should take a moment to do yourself.

If you live in the state of Tennessee, I encourage you to take sometime to listen to and read the story and information concerning Philip Workman and the death penalty. TCASK is a great blog to start with.

Below is an 11 minute video concerning Philip Workman, including testimony of his victim’s daughter, a juror, and the perjured eye witness.

Chris Lugo for State Senator

Chris Lugo
I figure any guy with dreadlocks seems like a good canidate for state senator in my book. The truth is I met Chris at a Peace Coalition meeting at NPJC back in the fall. I feel like his platform is worth a look and I’d suggest you check out what he has to say:

I am a resident of East Nashville and have been living in Tennessee for ten years. I am 36 years old and have been working in the community as a peace activist for ten years, with the Nashville Peace Coalition, Nashville Peace and Justice Center and Middle Tennessee Green Party.

I have put together this web site to tell you why I think I should be your next Senator and why you should vote for peace.

The war in Iraq is entering its third year with no end in sight. We have lost many thousands of people to this war and our international reputation and our ethical and moral standing in the world have been severely compromised. I believe it is time to end this immoral, unethical and illegal war.
