Texas government prepares to murder Ken Foster tho admitting he killed no one
09 Aug 2007
"Kenneth Foster did not kill anyone or premeditate murder. It is the State of Texas which is premeditating murder in late August.."
The Texas "Law of Parties" allows the state to continue its reign of terror and execute someone who killed none and planned on killing none.

Kenneth Foster drove
a car one of whose inhabitants shot someone.
Kenneth Foster was editor of his
school newspaper.

The shooter in Kenneth's car has already been murdered by the State of Texas.

The Save Kenneth Foster Coalition continues to work
though an execution date has been set.

People are networking, organizing prayer vigils
and circles, filing lawsuits,
calling and writing the media and legislators,
vigiling at the Supreme Court..

George Bush continues to hold the record as the most executing governor
in US history.

whereas Kucinich opposes judicial violence)

Another innocent Ken on death row is Scottish citizen Ken Richey in Ohio
who awaits a decision from the courts.
www.kennyrichey.org

Blacks are 3 or 4 times more likely
when on death row to be murdered
than whites on death row.

Texas is the only state in the country not allowing tv's to prisoners
on death row who are kept in
solitary confinement.

Please contact these Texas based
corporations. Ask them to
shut down Texecutions.

Texas prisoners are not allowed to touch the hands of their visitors
Sanitation is poor. Food is bad

Republican Governor Perry is
responsible as well.

The Drive movement engages in nonviolent resistance to their executions.
One who did was Tony Ford.

***********
Most religions of the world have scriptures opposing
state murder. In John 8:7, Jesus prevents an execution
in progress, standing between the woman being stoned
and the mob. Hindus, Buddhists, Jains have nonviolence
to all beings as part of their scriptures.
The Jewish 10 commandments include
"Thou shalt not kill" which is not asterisked with
exceptions.
***********
The US government is the most imprisoning
and punishing in the world per capita. The Bush
regime has privatized prisons creating
a prison industrial complex of profiteers feeding
on the suffering of others.

**********
Please ask Governor Rick Perry to do all he
can to end this and all Texas executions.
www.governor.state.tx.us/contact
*

God save Kenneth Foster's life. Remove all serial killers
from judicial benches and governments and corporations everywhere. Shut down
the Texecution machine.

Send Your lightning God to melt
the locks of Huntsville, release
the captives.
