Do Not Execute Curtis Osbourne!

Curtis Osbourne, Ga.

October 23, 2007

The state of Georgia is set to execute Curtis Osbourne on October 23 for the 1990 murders of Arthur Lee Jones and Linda Lisa Seabourne.

Georgia should not execute Osbourne for his role in this crime. Executing Osbourne would violate the right to life as declared in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and constitute the ultimate cruel, inhuman and degrading punishment. Furthermore, given recent developments, it would be unconscionable for the state of Georgia to proceed with any lethal injection execution before the U.S. Supreme Court has weighed in on the constitutionality of current protocols.
Please write to Gov. Sonny Perdue on behalf of Curtis Osbourne!

He lost his right to life the minute he decided to take the lives of two other people.

He's dead, although he died a far better death than the people he shot to death.

Justice and mercy should always go hand in hand, and the family of the victims received both.

He committed a crime as a trouble youth, but, a grown man was put to death. He was never given the opportunity to serve life in prison, as the white man was. The people that sentenced him to death are no better than he, they took his life. As the saying goes, thats one less black person.
