Petition Statement

Arizona - Provide restitution to Louis Taylor, a 59 year old Arizona man wrongly imprisoned for over 40 years. He was released only after he agreed not to sue them for wrongly imprisoning him which amounts to coercion/blackmail/extortion.That is sickening Injustice, not justice.
There are currently 883 signatures. NEW goal - We need 1,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Did you see the 60 Minutes episode. If you did sign this petition now. If you didn't, Louis Taylor, was railroaded for a crime he did not commit and now over 40 years later he was released only after 60 minutes exposed the injustice. The continuing injustice is that the district attorney threatened to drag him through court again all the way to the supreme court unless he pled no contest and promised not to sue for restitution. That is not justice but a Second injustice imposed on this man by a system that claims to uphold justice. This is sickening and cannot be allowed to stand.
