International Friendship Day – the future of Tim’s website…

25 Feburary 2017

It’s light a candle for Tim day, the 25th: I’ve had an e-mail from Tim, and the image it conjured, I must admit, made me smile. Here it is: It’s taken me a few days to email u back. They moved me to another block temporary due to the guy above my cell had a heat leak and it flooded my cell out. Takes a day for the kiosk to enter me in a different block. / The planned Death Row move from Chillicothe to Toledo has still not happened, with no definite date being given to the inmates – very unsettling for all of them /For Tim, though, no news is good news, as that hope which has been glimmering for too many months now, seems to be glowing at long last – more of that as soon as I can. This glowing puts the focus back on America; and appropriately, Tim has now got someone in America to take on the campaign and push for funding once we know how much he needs and for what. Her name is Tanya James and as soon as I have been in touch with her, I’ll send her contact details out. / And now: Fact 11 about the Death penalty [] In 2014, death sentences reached their lowest level in 40 years with only 73 people sentenced to death.  / I also noticed, only today, that the ‘death penalty information’ website is having February as its ‘Black History Month’. The one which caught my eye is this: Between 1973 and February 6, 2017, 157 men and women who were wrongly convicted and sentenced to death have been exonerated. 82 of these wrongfully convicted death-row exonerees (52.2%) are black. 12 (7.6%) are Latino. One each are Thai or Jordanian. Taken together, 61.1% of U.S. death-row exonerees are people of color.
