Irreversible Errors

Thomas Thompson was executed by lethal injection eighteen years ago this month at the age of 43. After you read my post from a year ago I think you will agree that there is an excellent chance that Thompson never committed the crime that triggered his death. https://guileisgood.com/2015/06/15/some-judgments-are-too-final/

My brother, Quin Denvir, was Thompson’s lawyer. Shortly before his death, Quin wrote Governor Brown asking that he end executions in California. http://www.sacbee.com/news/politics-government/capitol-alert/article68540477.html I know that, as he wrote that letter, Quin was thinking very much about what had happened to Tom Thompson.

Brown was against the death penalty as a young man. Maybe it’s time he acts to foreclose irreversible errors in the future. You can contact him to tell him that you hope he will commute the sentences of those now on death row. https://govnews.ca.gov/gov39mail/mail.php
