909 12th Street
Bay Area book tour, free public forum with J. Patrick O’Connor, author of SCAPEGOAT: The Chino Hills Murders and the Framing of Kevin Cooper and The Framing of Mumia Abu-Jamal.
O’Connor will be accompanied by Norman Hile, attorney for Kevin Cooper, and we will hear a special message from Cooper from San Quentin’s death row
Kevin Cooper was falsely convicted of the brutal murders of a Chino Hills, California family and a young houseguest in 1985 and has been on death row at San Quentin ever since. SCAPEGOAT shows how the “justice system” has failed him at almost every turn. If it were not for a court-ordered moratorium on executions in California over the lethal injection controversy, Cooper – with no appeals remaining – would have been executed by now. It is expected the moratorium will be lifted in late 2012 or early 2013.
