DNA proves he is innocent — yet he remains behind bars. https://t.co/LIlOL4b3LZ

It is unconscionable to use a statute of limitations to continue to imprison an innocent man. Period. https://t.co/aBGNBPTxvE

Today, the @ACLU, @aclu_mo, and @innocence filed an amicus brief on Lamar Johnson's case: https://t.co/rTrBjsR405

Simply put, no statute of limitations can or should be used to detain a potentially innocent man without so much as a hearing to expose the state’s wrongdoing. https://t.co/JNoSrXuJvd

Phenomenal waste. Of lives and of resources.

On Wednesday, Georgia executed a man with strong claims of innocence and untested DNA evidence.

Thankfully, a court has halted the execution of Rodney Reed, another innocent man on death row, who was scheduled to be killed in Texas next week.

When will this madness end? #NotInMyName

"It is so sad and frankly outrageous that the state of Georgia executed Ray Cromartie tonight after repeatedly denying his requests for DNA testing that would have proven he did not kill Richard Slysz. In this day and age, where DNA testing is routine, it is shocking that Georgia decided to end this man’s life without allowing us, his attorneys, access to the materials to do these simple tests. The victim’s daughter repeatedly asked that the state conduct this testing. The people of Georgia, and those in this country who believe in fairness, justice and compassion, deserve better."

- Shawn Nolan, Attorney for Ray Cromartie

Tomorrow night, Georgia plans to execute a man who has always maintained his innocence. Ray Cromartie refused a plea deal that would’ve seen him become parole eligible after seven years. He refused to plead guilty. He went to trial. He was given a death sentence.

No court has heard evidence of his innocence, and the state of Georgia refuses to test the potentially exculpatory DNA. Even the victim’s daughter wants the DNA tested.

Test. The. DNA.
