On February 10, 2004, Kevin Cooper came within minutes of being executed by the state of California for a crime he did not commit. On February 10, 2018, hear from Kevin as he calls in from death row to talk about his case, the barbarism of the death penalty, the racism of California’s justice system, and the agony of being innocent on death row.
“The State of California may be about to execute an innocent man.” Cooper v. Brown, 565 F.3d 581, 582 (9th Cir. 2009) (W. Fletcher, dissenting opn.)
This March will mark two years since Kevin’s petition for clemency hit Governor Brown’s desk. It’s long past time for the Governor to take action and Free Kevin Cooper!
