The Insite has received a press release that indicates a group plans to protest Harris County District Attorney Chuck Rosenthal at his private home. The group is upset about the number of people Harris County is sending to death row. What do you think about this strategy of protesting Rosenthal at his home? Here’s the press release:
Johnson’s execution, if not delayed, will be Harris county’s 100th execution since executions were resumed in Texas in 1982.
Harris County, if it were a state, would be second in the USA for executions, following the state of Texas. Third is the state of Virginia.
The press conference will be held on the sidewalk in front of Chuck Rosenthal’s home at xxxx xxxxxxxx. xxxxxxxxx runs parallel to Richmond.
Invited speakers for the press conference are Assistant Minister Eric Muhammad of the Nation of Islam Mosque 45, the Texas Death Penalty Abolition Movement, Harris County Green Party, the Texas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty, prison activist Ray Hill, S.O.S. radio host Brother Zin, and the family of Michael Richard, a mentally retarded man set for execution on September 25.
