to master sergeant and a coveted Meritorious Service Award...He suffered severe brain damage from
nerve gas exposure... In December 2000, the Pentagon informed Jones that he, along with about 130,000
other soldiers, may have been exposed to low levels of nerve gas wafting from a weapons depot troops
destroyed near the southern Iraqi city of Khamisiyah in March 1991.

Stacey Lawton - Texecuted November 14, 2000 #148
Wrongfully Convicted on Death Row in Texas ?
Since the time of this writing a Texas Judge postponed the execution until November 14th, to allow
Stacey time to file his appeal before the board of pardons and parole, they of course denied it...
" I have an execution date for October 4th and I need to get somebody to hear my case. I need your help because of the seriousness of this execution date. I have been wrongfully convicted and I need some help as soon as possible. I need some law students at some college. I need a lawyer to help
me bring up my new evidence."
Thanks to One Minute Silence and their fans and friends who have shown their support for Stacey.

Statement from the office of Texecutioner George W. Bush regarding
his blatant disregard for international law and the international community.
CANADA - June 17, 1999
The week George W. Bush announces his bid for the Presidency Canadian Stan Faulder is Texecuted against International law.
MEXICO - November 9, 2000
The week of the Presidential elections Mexican Miguel Flores is Texecuted against International law.
The moment was
noteworthy for two reasons. First, as his campaign later conceded, Mr. Bush
had his facts wrong two of the three defendants were sentenced to
third received life in prison. But by seeming to endorse the
executions, he also violated his own policy as Texas governor of
maintaining his silence and impartiality about pending death penalty
cases until court appeals
are exhausted and the cases reach his desk. Mr. Bush's blunt
of the executions of the defendants in the Byrd case even
the appeals process has only begun brought a swift response from
legal scholars and other critics who say the comments undermine the
principle of due process.
"There has been a thought that he doesn't really take the appellate system seriously," said a University of Houston law professor, David Dow, who has represented death row inmates. Of his comments on the Byrd defendants, Mr. Dow said: "He was celebrating their death sentences. I think even most supporters of the death penalty do not celebrate death sentences. It's a somber event." - Excerpts from The New York Times, by Jim Yardley

Rev. Jesse Jackson Challenges Bush to have the
courage of his convictions, and witness his actions
" If Governor Bush is convinced that Gary Graham is guilty...
He should go with me to the site of the execution...
He should witness it himself."

Shaka refused to go quietly and fought for his life with every last breath. To the very end he was still declaring his innocence !

Shaka Sankofa (Gary Graham) Lynched in Texas June 22, 2000 #135 !
I die fighting for what I believed in... The truth will come out....This is a lynching. I did not kill Bobby Lambert... I was chosen for this genocide. This is part of the genocide we as black people have endured in America...'' - from his final statements, see his page for the complete text of his final statement. Shaka put Texecutioner George W. Bush on his witness list, after
receiving a letter from the CCADP, and invited the governor to see what he'd done 135 times.
The governor's spokesman said, "We respectfully decline." President Bush doesn't have the courage to witness his actions as Governor, leaving an empty seat at Shaka's execution.
George W. Bush can murder Gary Graham,
but he will never silence Shaka Sankofa !
The United Nations
U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Mary Robinson, who had appealed directly to Bush for a stay of execution, said the execution "ran counter to widely accepted international principles."
The Government of Italy
"The executioner doesn't let up.'' The head of Italy's Democratic Left party, Walter Veltroni, called Bush
"cold and bureaucratic'' after the governor commented
that "justice was done.''
The Government of Germany
"It does not fit: The United States presents itself on the
one hand as the world police defending human rights, and
on the other side it carries out the death penalty," said German lawmaker Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger. She called on the German government to "make this detestable topic the object of discussions with our American friends."
| The Government of France
The speaker of the French parliament, Raymond Forni urged Bush to postpone the execution "I cannot believe that the victory you hope for, to lead the largest democracy on earth, should be paid for with the blood of your fellow countrymen. I am pleading with you in the name of humanity and political courage and due process to allow the trial of Gary Graham to be reopened..."
execution of Odell Barnes is an assassination," said Jack Lang, the chairman
of the French National Assembly's foreign affairs committee.
Jack Lang, Chairman of France's Foreign Affairs committee, flew to Texas last
month to intervene on Barnes' behalf and met Barnes in his prison in Huntsville.
"How can Governor Bush pretend to aspire to the presidency of the United States after
having perpetrated such a crime ? What credit would he have to demand respect for
human rights around the world when he was the instigator of such a barbaric act ?"
The leading French politician and rights campaigner, said the execution of Odell Barnes
late Wednesday amounted to an assassination and that he was "revolted and indignant''
by this "barbaric act." The execution made headline news in France, where French
President Jacques Chirac and Prime Minister Lionel Jospin intervened on Barnes behalf.
Despite DNA evidence that showed police set Odell up, as well as witnesses stating Odell was not the murderer, Bush decided to execute an innocent man rather than have to go through the inconvenience of exposing the police corruption in Texas as just happened with death-row cases in Illinois, as well as all the police abuse headlines recently from both the LAPD and NYPD.
Odell Barnes - Innocent Man Texecuted : March 1, 2000 #122
Hours before his execution, when asked what he wanted for his final meal, Odell Barnes said, "Justice, equality and world peace.'' His last words were: "I thank you for proving my innocence, although it has not been acknowledged in the courts,'' Barnes said. "May you continue in the struggle and may you change all that's being done here today and in the past.''
Despite the fact that a simple DNA test proved police were faking blood evidence
against Odell Barnes, they went ahead and executed an innocent man anyway !
The test proved conclusively that the blood at the crime scene came not from
the assailant, but from a vial of blood taken from Odell by police after arrest.
Residule amounts of the preservative used in these vials were found in the blood evidence at the scene. The only way the preservative could be present is if someone had taken the blood samples collected by police and dumped them at the crime scene, samples the police later were unable to account for. Despite forensic proof that the police were tampering with blood evidence, the courts refused to acknowledge all the new evidence proving his innocence.
The last filed appeal was denied by the Supreme Court of the United States, early October 1999.
Once the appeal was denied, the date for his execution date was set for March 1, 2000.
His page includes information on his case and conviction, as well as all the news articles that gave this case of Texas injustice international attention, and pleas to George W.Bush from The Government of France, and The European Union. Odell becomes George W.Bush's 122nd victim.
There is currently a film being made about the wrongful conviction of Odell Barnes.
| European Parliament Speaks Out
Against Bush's Texecutions
Mrs. Nicole Fontaine, President of the European Parliament, made the following appeal
to Governor Bush condemning the Texecutions of Odell Barnes and Bettie Lou Beets . . .
Bettie Lou Beets - 62 Year Old Great Grandmother Texecuted Feb 24, 2000
In her words, "My time is running out and the state of Texas will pick up where my husband left off. While the Texas law enforcement out there did nothing to help me, it is now legal for them to finish the job." Even though her death sentence was based on fiction as her lawyer hid the facts,Governor Bush refused to look at the evidence her lawyer never admitted that would have stopped the death penalty from being implemented. Texas pardons and paroles refused to look at the issues of domestic violence as is allowed under Texas law. Both Governor Bush, and Texas Pardons and Paroles board clearly failed in their duty to uphold the integrity of their offices and positions. Visit her page for her writings on battered women, her life, letters from Bettie, and more. Bettie's page was recently featured in Canada's National Post newspaper,as well as all the news articles that gave this case of Texas injustice international attention, and pleas to George W.Bush from Battered Women's Groups and The European Union. Bettie Becomes George W. Bush's 121st victim.
Karla Faye Tucker
George Bush ordered the killing of the first woman in Texas since the 1860's
After ignoring calls from religious leaders such as Pat Robertson,
Bush went ahead with the execution on schedule.
In the summer of '99 after announcing his bid for the presidency, Bush openly
mocks Karla's pleas for clemency in an interview he does with Talk magazine.
" `Please,' Bush whimpers, his lips pursed in mock desperation, `don't kill me,' "
Bush makes fun of Karla Faye Tucker in an interview with CNN's conservative pundit Tucker Carlson for Talk magazine.
" I think it is nothing short of unbelievable that the governor of a major state
running for president thought it was acceptable to mock a woman he decided
to put to death," - Republican Candidate Gary Bauer said of Bush's lewd comments.

| Canadian Stan Faulder
Texecuted June 17, 1999
Joseph Stanley Faulder, a sixty one year old Canadian from Jasper Alberta was the first Canadian executed by the US in 47 years.
The Supreme Court refused to hear his appeal on the Vienna Convention, among other issues. There were many irregularities in his trial, including a prosecution paid for by the victims family, and Mr. Faulder was denied his consular rights for 15 years.
In all that time, the Canadian government was not informed that a Canadian sat in jail in Texas,
let alone on death row.
International Lawbreaker George W. Bush goes ahead with the execution of
Stan Faulder after ignoring the cries of international outrage from:
Mary Robinson - U.N. Commissioner on Human Rights demand for a stay of execution
Madeline Albright - Demands from the international community for a stay of execution
Desmond Tutu - South African Archbishop demands for a stay of execution
OAS - Organization of American States demand for a stay of execution
Lloyd Axworthy - Canada's Foreign Affairs Ministers' demand for a stay of execution
Larry Robison - Mentally Ill - Texecuted January 21, 2000

|GLEN CHARLES McGINNIS Texecuted - January 25, 2000
(Below text is taken from Glen Charles McGinnis TX Pen-pal request sent to the CCADP before his execution:)
I am a Black African American young man, who is in mid twenties, 6 feet 1 inch, paper sack brown in complexion. I weigh 165 pounds to 168. Clean cut, well groomed, with a straight white smile. I am the only child to my parents who made some ill errors in life. First time being incarcerated in prison, and I find myself on death row. I have been on death row since late August of 92. I am know in the final phase of my appeals yet I believe I have some more breathing left in me. I am a very open minded individual who does not cater to race, sex preference or origin, thus religion. I do not believe in religion on an organized level, yet I deem myself to be respectful of others' choices in life, for life is too short lived for personal complications and programming. I am not interested in befriending or communicating with anyone who is in want of saving my soul. I am okay with whom I am as a person, my regrets in life are few, mistakes I've made, errors I've danced with, yet I believe I had to live with the lot to be able to grasp and appreciate who I am as a person today. I am not interested in defending or pseudo justification of my current station in life, meaning I know and recognize that today is a new day, I know and understand what is essential to my living. I do not live in yesterday. I'd like to communicate with someone who understands the mental concept of being able to deal with and select death. Someone who knows we've got to make our peace with death in order to choose life, because death is an incredibly good friend. It tells us that we don't have forever. And if you want life, you'd better live it now! Because if you wait it may not be there. A wonderful thing about Democratic Death, nobody knows when its coming. And so its a challenge to you to live every moment as if death were sitting saying to you "I'm here, I'm here, I'm here." There's nothing more abhorrent to us in our culture than a concept of death. I have never seen a people more afraid of death than in the United States. You know why? Because we don't live! If we lived, we would not fear death. Being on death row presented that gift to me, I've got an edge, because I'll be conscious in advance of my impending day. Its odd how I didn't have much appreciation for life while living in the free world. Its taken years later for me to grasp meaning of Life, Self, and Love. Life is a world of lessons. I'd like to communicate with someone that's not about catch ups, statistics or judgments. Again, men, women, sexual orientation, whatever religion, isn't of relevance, for I'm not trying to romance or be romanced in a mail correspondence set up, whatever the case, I ask that the person who writes me be of genuine mind set, for I tend to give simply that. I do not place expectations on people, I do ask that whoever writes not expect nothing from me but be in the know that I will share all that I've learned and know in accumulation in time, for having isn't anything if you can't give what you have. I have learned a lot and yet nothing, yet and still I am willing to genuinely share ME with whoever writes with a genuine intent. Thank you all for reading this. If no one responds, I do understand, and I thank you nonetheless.

Nathaniel Barley - Died in hospital: January 25, 2000 at the Ellis Death Camp
Nathaniel was a 33 year old Texas death row prisoner. In the words of his attorney, " He is the most troubling case that I know of. I've never seen so much deliberate or negligent misconduct by the state. There is no substantial evidence pointing to Barley's guilt." His page includes photos, case information, links to another page on Nathaniel. He died around noon, Tuesday, Jan. 25, 2000. He died of respiratory failure complicated by Hodgkin's Lymphoma, a kind of cancer. A year ago Nathaniel had a big ball cut off his neck and was supposedly given treatment to stop the cancer. No one knows YET exactly how he was treated and why he died so suddenly, but knowing TDCJ, Nathaniel probably died of negligence.
JAMES SESSION - Died in his cell September 14, 1999 at the Ellis Death Camp
We at the Canadian Coalition Against the Death Penalty are saddened to report that James Edward Session, who was
42 years old, died alone at the Ellis Unit in Texas around 3:20 a.m. Monday morning, September 14, 1999 in his cell.
Prison officials reported that he died of a heart attack, knowing TDCJ James more likely died of medical neglect.
Here is a memorial sent to us from James friend and fellow death row prisoner Jimmy Jackson:
In Memory, Dedication to Mr James Session 669
Sad enough, Mr James Session has pass away, while living on F-wing. I was informed by another person that my dear friend had a hard time breathing an had requested to go to the hospital to seek medical attention, and Mr Session stayed in the hospital for a couple of hours before he was brought back to F wing. Upon Mr Session's return to F Wing, he still had problems breathing and in the wee hours of the night Mr Session was pronounced dead, to my understanding around 3 AM in the morning.
There's no justice for Mr Session who was a very good friend of mines, and I know he had many more friends and love ones that love him dearly. I know this system don't give a dam about Mr Session but I do and I want all his penpals and love ones that might not know about what happened to Mr Session, this is my reason for writing these words of love for Mr Session because I knew he would do the same for me. The bottom line is that this system murdered Mr Session. If the system would have had some good doctor down there in the hospital knowing what they were doing then Mr Session would still be alive physically not just spiritually. This tragedy should not go unnoticed. One must understand one apart element about life, everyone's life is very precious and so was James. There should be a outcry about this systems way of treating human beings in prison. The doctor often say take a Tylenol and call me in the morning, won't get the job done, in this case it took Sessions life. James was / is a good person, lets not allow this system to continue to get away with murdering innocent people. Don't you think its time to put a stop to this nonsense which occurs not only in this prison but prisons all over the world; enough is enough already don't you think? Mr James had a lot of love, respect, understanding for the human race as a whole, he attempted to live his life to the fullest while living in an unfortunate situation an he was looking forward to be released from Death Row, another innocent man murdered by this system. To all Mr Session family and friends, we both know that Session love you all dearly and had / have much inundate unconditional love for you all an there's no doubt about that either. Knowing Session he would want you all to remain strong and always remember the love in which he carried in the deepest core of his heart for each one of you all. A man in his prime gone too soon.
