Kenny Richey: The Principle

Friday, 15 September 2006

There appears to be some confusion amongst anti and pro death penalty supporters about why I still fight for Kenny and his freedom.

I want to lay to rest this confusion once and for all.

People need to remember one basic thing. This is about principles not personalities.   And the principle is the same today as it was at the begining for me. That has never changed.  

And it never will.

I began this campaign because I believe in Kenny Richey's innocence. I have looked at every document there is on this case. Not just once but many, many times

Not once have I ever seen anything that suggests my belief is misguided in any shape or form.

My belief in Kenny's innocence is unshakeable.

All the scientific evidence proves that the fire which tragically took the life of little Cynthia Collin's was an accidental house fire.

His defence have destroyed the case totally.

I believe in my heart that one day, some time in the future, (I don't know when) that Kenny will be a free man. And rightly so. Kenny has endured much emotional and some physical torture in all these years.

Being wrongfully convicted is a terrible thing.

To take someone's freedom with the threat of taking their very life is an unthinkable thing to endure.

Every single one of us know what it feels like to be blamed for something we didn't do or say. Even on small matters. We get indignant and angry that we are being falsley accused of something.   

Think then on how Kenny and people in his situation must feel day in and day out. Year in and year out as it drags on and on and on.

When we know something is wrong, it is our moral duty to stand up and shout loudly for the people who have no real voice. It is our duty to protect and fight for the vulnerable people in society, wherever they may be. And Kenny Richey is counted in amongst the people to shout loudly for. He has no real voice of his own because they won't listen and have not listened to what he has been saying all along.

Once I heard and saw the facts of this case and many other cases, I could not close my eyes and ears and pretend I didn't know. I did know and I do know.
I cannot pretend I do not know about this injustice and neither should any of the supporters or the media.

Injustice is wrong. Plain and simple. And what has happened in the Kenny Richey case is very wrong.

The State of Ohio have robbed him of 20 years of his life for a crime that never even happened. 20 years that are lost forever. His youth gone, his health is deteriorating and it can never be given back to him no matter how hard he wishes it.

The State of Ohio still want to kill him. They will continue to appeal as long as they can get away with it, just so they do not have to admit that yes they sometimes get it wrong. They will kill him if they can.

Can anyone imagine the torment and torture this is? To be rendered helpless and without a lot of hope of the nightmare ever ending?

Not really being able to help yourself and having tabloid media write whatever they like because its "a story".  Many forget that this is not just a story, this is Kenny's very life. But some take advantage of this situation and use it for their own ends. After all isn't an innocent man sitting on death row for 20 odd years something to ridicule and make fun of?

That's how it looks to me in some of the media articles I have read of late.

To be in the pits of despair and alone is the most horrible feeling. Because at the end of the day thats Kenny's reality. He may have support but he is still basically alone. Only he can endure the life he is being forced to lead against his will. No one else can do it for him.

Kenny's reality is that he wants this over with, one way or another. Either kill him or let him free.

What a terrible situation to be forced into but this is exactly the situation he is in.  No human being should be forced to exist like this. I cannot even say live, because this is not living. This is merely existing in a nightmare and hoping like hell you survive it.

The pressures, stresses and strains are tremendous. Enough to drive even the strongest of people to feel like they are losing their minds at times.

So if anyone ever wonders again, this is all exactly why I continue to fight for Kenny Richey and others like him.

I believe in his innocence. I believe he was wrongfully convicted and I believe that he will be freed one fine day. I know it will not be easy but then again I always knew that.

Nothing worthwhile ever is easy but the fight for justice is always worthwhile. Never doubt or forget that.

We should start once more to write to Tony Blair and the Governor of Ohio. Addresses are on this website.

It is time that the injustice Kenny endures is what media and supporters concentrate on and not all the rubbish and "publicity stunts" or whatever you would like to call them.

I understand that people are unhappy and disappointed in him but that has to be put to the side and the focus needs to be on what is important.

I know I can count on supporters to continue to write letters of protest and to continue to support Kenny's innocence. That's what is important after all.


Take care

Right Choices

They were just stories, but every night my parents and I would gather around and read from a book of fairy tales. Brave knights would rescue princesses, small elves would come to the aid of people in need, and little children would get into trouble for telling a lie. Each found a place in my heart, especially the princess who had to decide which path to follow through a strange, enchanted forest.

A few years ago, layoffs at work left me frantically seeking new employment. I searched through the paper and called friends for leads. After many interviews, and much discouragement, it happened. Not one, but three job offers came on the same day. Each was in a different city and each would provide the income I needed.

Which to choose, I could not tell. Recruiters made each one sound so perfect, yet I knew that one would be better than the rest. Which one, I pondered. As I reviewed each company and my own personal goals, I began to feel at peace with one particular offer. But I was still confused.

As I sat thinking, the voice of my mother came back from my memory as she read the fairy tales of my youth. The princess was in the forest and confused as the animals all tried to give her conflicting advice. Suddenly, I knew. And the choice has given me a career of which to be proud. The words that I remembered?

"When you need a friend to trust, listen to your heart."

'THE CONSPIRACY CHRONICLES!'

Hot Press Item.......... The raw data behind the stories they don't want you to read. 

The Conspiracy Chronicles will feature guest writers, submitted articles, raw data, trial transcripts and the meat behind the stories they don’t want you read.

They will all be available as downloaded PDF’s and we hope to have a new copy available every month, with special editions as and when the need arises.

What someone doesn't want you to publish is journalism, all else is publicity.

 

Watch out for our 2007 issue!

 
Papers battle online news sites.

 

Reading papers on the tube
Fewer people seem inclined to pay for their news

"All the news that's fit to print" was once the newspaper man's slogan. Now, with news-junkies turning increasingly to the net for their daily fix of world events, papers are beginning to feel the pinch.

Not since the internet began has there been so much free quality newspaper content on the web.

You will have to make the most of it because the current bonanza might not last forever.

I think there is no doubt that growth in electronic media is the future, but there is still a future for print.
Larry Killman, World Association of Newspapers
Newspapers are still not sure what to do about the internet, no matter how determined they are to prove wrong the doomsayers who claim they are dead.

But Larry Killman of the World Association of Newspapers believes newspapers are "far from dead".

"People have been predicting their death for years, television was going to kill newspapers, for example," he said.

"I think there is no doubt that growth in electronic media is the future, but there is still a future for print."

Over the years newspapers have been pretty resilient; they managed to ride out the challenge from radio and toughed it out with TV.

Financial challenge

But those challenges were more about who would be first or best with the news. The internet, however, is hitting papers where it hurts, in their pockets.

Liberation office
Losses have mounted at Liberation as its circulation slides

"For more than 100 years journalism has been sustained by this virtuous circle in which the audience paid for their news, and the advertiser paid to reach that audience, and the publisher made a profit and paid his journalists and the society benefited into the bargain," said Michael Oreskes, executive editor of the International Herald Tribune.

"That whole circle breaks down on the internet. This requires wildly creative thinking on the part of media companies to preserve the base of support that's created quality journalism for all these years.

"And that's a subject that the whole of society needs to be interested in and not just those whose livelihood depends on it."

The big question facing major papers is how can they compete with free. News used to be a saleable commodity, now they seem to be giving it away.

I do think the internet is a problem, but it is also the solution
Fabrice Rousselot, Libération

Papers like Metro have borrowed the internet's business model and make money solely through advertising.

Given their fix of news, many people will not now fork out for a paper.

That is hurting papers like France's Libération. It has traditionally shunned advertising it deemed politically compromising and relied on its cover price for its income.

It is now in financial crisis: its doors threatening to close for good. The paper partly blames the internet.

Complementary strategy

"I do think the internet is a problem, but it is also the solution," said Fabrice Rousselot, Libération's internet editor.

"The mistake I think for any kind of media today would be to think they could do anything without the internet.

"You have to integrate the internet as part of your business model."

Which leaves papers with the problem of what, out of the pile of content they produce, should they put on the web?

There is not much point, for example, putting exactly the same stuff on the website as they put in the paper.

"If you offer on your website the exact same content as in your newspaper, why would people buy the newspaper? It makes no sense economically," said Mr Rousselot.

"But if you show people that the content on the website is only made richer in the newspaper the next morning because what you have on the website in terms of news is becoming an analysis, is becoming a report from abroad, is becoming some kind of a huge interview on the newspaper, then there is a sense to it."

While web strategy is being bandied around as the sink or swim buzzword of the moment, newspapers freely admit that no-one really knows for sure whether what they are doing is going to pay off in the end.

Experimentation

The International Herald Tribune now sees itself as a media organisation rather than just a paper; their website features video stories and has taken the step of charging for premium content.

"Good journalism costs money and so we are trying to see what we can do to make sure we can continue to grow and support the business," said Meredith Artley, director of digital development at the International Herald Tribune.

"So far it is working. The advertising is growing at a huge rate and we are seeing, especially with mobile devices, that readers will pay for something they know that's valuable.

"They'll do it on the web too, but with mobiles it is a little bit different. People will download things, they will pay for them.

"So we are exploring that. It is still a little bit of experimentation, but that is what all this is about."

These are scary times for newspapers and a crucial time for society.

A fully functioning media needs more than fast reacting rolling news, it also needs newspapers which spend more time chewing over what the news actually means.

There is a problem with free: it often comes unpackaged and without the know-how to understand it.

UK stop and search at US secret base...
 
February 05 2007

THE US has paid the Ministry of Defence almost £1.7m in the last three years to provide a British stop and search outer cordon round its most secret base on UK soil.

Figures seen also show 2110 motorists have been stopped and 941 vehicles searched as they approached RAF Menwith Hill, the largest electronic eavesdropping centre outside America.

The base, near Harrogate in Yorkshire, is run by the US National Security Agency, which has 1200 staff on site. Despite its status as an "RAF" station, the location has only a token UK military presence. The US military provides armed, on-site security.

One of Menwith Hill's prime advantages is that it lies outside US jurisdiction and can listen-in via satellite links to American domestic telephone traffic without contravening phone-tapping regulations.

GUESS WHAT I GOT YOU FOR VALENTINE'S.

A TOP photographer gave his fiancee the ultimate Valentine's present - a £500,000 gift-wrapped house.

Jasin Boland, 41, used 5000sq ft of heart-covered wrapping and a 75ft long ribbon to cover his love token to Maria Moral Pela.

German-born Maria, 29, who was flown in by helicopter, was awestruck when movie photographer Jasin gave her the keys to the luxury four-bedroom home.

Maria said: "What a wonderful surprise. It's amazing."

Later, Aussie Jasin said: "The secret of romance isn't big gestures, the secret is being in love. If you're trying to make a romantic gift, you just need a big bow."

And when asked how he will top the prezzie when next Valentine's Day comes round, he said: "Are you kidding? I can dine out on this one until the day I die."

The love nest is on an eco-friendly estate near Cirencester, Gloucestershire.

The most romantic location to propose on Valentine's Day is on a beach or on top of a cliff, according to a survey for the National Lottery.
