An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Stop Brandon Bernard from being executed

267 so far! Let’s get to 500 signers!

From https://t.co/TSlshjpt83: “Brandon Bernard was sentenced to death for a crime committed in 1999, when he was only 18 years old. As an accomplice, he did not have a leading role in that crime, and he has demonstrated positive behavior throughout his 20 years of incarceration, even reaching out to others and counseling them not to follow in his path. When critical charging and sentencing decisions were made in his case, both the Government and the jurors had an incomplete picture of Brandon and the offense. Today, five of the nine surviving jurors no longer believe that a death sentence is necessary for Brandon AND one of Brandon’s former prosecutors who worked to uphold his sentence, now wants his life to be spared. “ “Before this year, no federal execution had taken place since 2003. Beginning in July 2020, the Department of Justice resumed federal executions and since then has killed seven individuals, with the eighth, ninth and tenth scheduled for this November and December. Sadly, Brandon has now received an execution date. He is currently scheduled to be killed on December 10, 2020. Brandon Bernard was sentenced to death in June 2000, when he was still a teenager. We need to save Brandon and get him off Death Row!” Please please PLEASE do whatever you can to stop Donald Trump from letting this man be executed. I am urging you.
