Stop the Execution of Kevin Cooper
Kevin Cooper
2/9/2004: Saying "no person should be executed if there is doubt about his or her guilt and an easily available test will determine guilt or innocence," the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals granted a stay that blocked the execution of Kevin Cooper. Attorney General Bill Lockyer immediately petitioned the US Supreme Court to overturn the stay but the court declined to overrule it. Protestors still showed up at the prison to make sure that Cooper would not be executed.
Kevin Cooper is an inmate on death row at San Quentin State Prison. In 1985 he was convicted of the murder of the Ryen family and a houseguest in San Bernadino county. The state's case against Kevin Cooper is full of holes, and he has always maintained his innocence. There are also issues of racism, poverty, and police misconduct in this case.
