Ok, let me ask you something.
For my midterm project in Deviance and Violence I have to write 2000 words on any incident of schoolyard shooting in our history. I have chosen the Newark NJ shooting from 2007.
In my research of this class I read :
John Kip Cornwell, a Seton Hall Law School professor, said because there appears to be no physical evidence or eyewitness to show Godinez actively took part in the schoolyard shooting, “his mere presence isn’t enough to establish his liability as an accomplice."
Prosecutors “have to show he somehow facilitated the crime. He’s not guilty just because he didn’t affirmatively prevent someone else from shooting,: Cornwell said. “Those are major hurdles for the prosecution, because it bears a burden, a higher burden. They have their work cut out for them.”
Please tell me Dear Readers, How many women have been convicted to death row for just being in the wrong place at the wrong time?
Anybody, anybody? Ferris?
Please keep in mind that this blog often has comments and statements directly from the women on death row. Statements of grief, statements of innocence, statements of regret and sorrow. If bearing audience to these women's feelings, my opinions or those of commenters offends you please do not read on.
What You'll Find Here
I write to, for and about female criminals. I write about the ones I believe are innocent, the liars and even the killers. Most of them are on death row or serving life without parole. They provide artwork, essays and poems to this blog and I provide them with books, magazines, correspondence classes, help for their families and personal hygiene items.
