“There are times that I feel like giving up. I’ve been in prison 34 years as an innocent man. THIS IS NOT JUSTICE. I was framed by Corrupt prosecutors, bad lawyers and crooked cops. I am fighting for my life. Can you hear me?

“I need all the public support you can give me. I will not give up if you do not give up on me.

“Thank you for your support. Truth wins.”
