#politcalpost #innocenceproject #ledelllee #socialjustice #moneytalks insta topsy.oneNot to mention that the Arkansas State Medical Board is investigating the stateLast week the state of Arkansas executed Ledell Lee, because the chemicals in stock were going to expire this month. He was in prison for more than 20 years, with more than 10 of them in solitary confinement. 
@innocenceproject advocated for the state to allow a DNA test to be performed to confirm his innocence based on evidence, but the state refused the test to take place and went forward with executing him along with more than 8 other prisoners in order to use the chemicals in stock before their expiration date. Ledell Lee claimed he was innocent and tried to prove his innocence together with the support of the Innocence Project. Our system today needs to be fixed. 
We do our little part by supporting the Innocence Project through design, storytelling and tech. We invite everyone to use the skills they have to help meaningful organizations that work tirelessly to improve our society. insta topsy.one#USA. #ARKANSAS: ESEGUITA QUARTA #CONDANNA A #MORTE IN 8 GIORNI

Quarta esecuzione di un condannato a morte in Arkansas in una settimana: il detenuto #KennethWilliams, 38 anni, condannato per l’uccisione di due persone avvenuta a seguito della fuga da un #carcere di massima #sicurezza dove scontava l’#ergastolo per #omicidio è morto alle 23.05 locali con #iniezioneletale.

Le quattro #esecuzioni sono state realizzate in tempi ristretti per rientrare nei termini di #scadenza delle #sostanze usate per comporre il #cocktailletale. La prima esecuzione – #giovedì – è stata quella di #LedellLee, quindi lunedì sono state condotte le esecuzioni di #JackJones e #MarcelWilliams. insta topsy.one#Repost @innocenceproject with @repostapp

No one should be executed when there is a possibility that they are innocent, but it happened last night. We are saddened by the execution of Ledell Lee.

The following can be attributed to Innocence Project Senior Staff Attorney Nina Morrison who along with the ACLU represented Ledell Lee in seeking DNA testing prior to his execution this evening:

Ledell Lee proclaimed his innocence from the day of his arrest until the night of his execution twenty-four years later.  During that time, hundreds of innocent people have been freed from our nation’s prisons and death rows by DNA evidence. It is hard to understand how the same government that uses DNA to prosecute crimes every day could execute Mr. Lee without allowing him a simple DNA test.

Arkansas’s decision to rush through the execution of Mr. Lee just because its supply of lethal drugs are expiring at the end of the month denied him the opportunity to conduct DNA testing that could have proven his innocence. While reasonable people can disagree on whether death is an appropriate form of punishment, no one should be executed when there is a possibility that person is innocent. insta topsy.one@Regrann from @bcumnabettame_ -  Executed 4/20 without DNA testing to prove innocence...
This morning, attorneys for #LedellLee asked the Arkansas Supreme Court to stay his execution to allow time for DNA testing that could prove his innocence. Lee, who is represented by attorneys from the Innocence Project and the ACLU, is scheduled for execution on Thursday, April 20, 2017.

Lee has always maintained his innocence of the 1993 murder and sexual assault of Debra Reese. Numerous unknown fingerprints were found at the crime scene, yet none were from Lee.

The criminal justice system has completely failed Lee since he was arrested for the crime.  Lee was tried by a judge who concealed that he was having an affair with the assistant prosecutor on the case, whom he later married. Lee’s first state post-conviction counsel introduced the evidence of the affair by calling the judge’s ex-wife, who testified about the affair after opposing the subpoena. Lee’s lawyer, however, was so intoxicated at the hearing that the prosecution asked for him to be drug tested after he slurred, stumbled, and made incoherent arguments.

Lee has fetal alcohol syndrome disorder, significant brain damage and significant intellectual disability – important defenses to the death penalty that his lawyers failed to litigate.

Lee won new proceedings because of the lawyer’s drunkenness, and his representation did not improve after that attorney was dismissed. His next lawyers failed to introduce evidence of the affair, giving up one of many of Lee’s important arguments, and never pursued his innocence or intellectual disability claims.  Nor did they ever ask the court to order DNA testing. - #regrann insta topsy.oneTake a moment to Google Ledell Lee.
