    Had gotten the information on the execution date being set from color of change. This is such grotesque injustice; the supreme court asked for an impossible task to demonstrate innocence; there is certainly sufficient evidence to set aside the verdict and death penalty. At the least, a new trial should be done. Signed the petitions ages ago, both for AI UK and AI US ... this case exemplifies why the death penalty should never be given and why the majority (vast) have either suspended the death penalty or have abolished it. Diary tipped, rec'd and shared.
