USA, ALABAMA: Rocky Myers faces Execution - ONLINE ACTION

Amnesty International, 7-16-2022

Rocky Myers is sitting in a cell in Alabama, facing execution for a crime he says he did not commit.

And today is his birthday.

Rocky’s case is one of the many reasons the death penalty should be abolished. He was convicted by a nearly all-white jury for the murder of a white neighbor. 

What’s worse is that the trial judge overrode the jury’s life sentence and imposed the death penalty — a practice banned in 2017, but not applied retroactively to Rocky’s sentence.

In honor of Rocky’s birthday, join us to urge Alabama Governor Kay Ivey to commute his death sentence.
