ATTORNEY GENERAL JERRY BROWN 

     We ask you to call on the United States Attorney General to launch an investigation into the violation of Kevin Cooper's civil and constitutional rights.

     We ask that you seek no execution dates while these matters are being investigated.

     Kevin Cooper is an innocent man on California’s death row.    

     Five 9th Circuit Judges found that the prosecution (1) presented false evidence at trial, (2) destroyed evidence before the jury could see it, (3) lost or withheld exonerating evidence from the defense.

     In addition, these judges found that post-trial forensic testing showed evidence tampering by law enforcement. The judges warned that, “the State of California may be about to execute an innocent man.”

     The trial was held in a climate of great racial hatred. An African American was being tried in the news media for the murder of a white family and houseguest.

Hate-filled racist graffiti was displayed around the courthouse during court proceedings. Jurors were allowed to stay on the jury who had been exposed to highly prejudicial press.
