that you are Sabrina Butler. You grew up
in poverty, endured racism, and oppression.
You are a high school dropout, married at age 15, with two children by
age 17. Life is hard, but your worst
nightmare occurred on April 11, 1989.
Your nine-month-old son died. You
attempted to save his life.
Twelve police officers
questioned you and three detectives interrogated you. They interrogated you without your mother,
father, brothers, or an attorney.
They charged you with a
crime you did not commit – capital murder.
During the trial, they found you guilty of capital murder. The trial ended on March 12, 1990. The court established your death date as July
2, 1990, by lethal injection.
You endured abuse all of your
life. However, the abuse heaped on you by
ambitious people hiding within a system was unreal. Why would powerful men rush to put a
powerless young girl to death? Now wake
up, your nightmare is over. Nevertheless,
enlightened citizens must work to end a corrupt system designed to kill the
powerless – guilty or innocent. A
civilized society does not want to miss the opportunity to right the
wrongs. The United States abolished
slavery in 1865, now it is time to abolish the death penalty!
