Last Tuesday, June 16, I was privileged to be asked by the Human Rights Office of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Kansas City and St. Joseph and Missourians to Abolish the Death Penalty to lead a prayer service on behalf of Clemons. The date of the service was supposed to be the date Clemons was executed, but this lawsuit prevented--for now--the execution going forward.
The MADP has a page listing what people can do and providing facts about Clemons' case--and it's practically a textbook example of reasons our state's system of capital punishment is deeply flawed. Reasonable doubt is an understatement in Clemons' case. Clemons' family also has a site advocating for a new trial.
Grace and Peace,
