We have such little time y’all. This hurts so bad. Y’all don’t know how bad this hurts me. They’re trying to kill my brother in retaliation for us going to the US Supreme Court. We don’t know how the judge will respond to Bryan Goertz’s motion to set Rodney’s execution date for November 20.
I published that blog post about God calling Mama to reach out to Tyler Perry. And really, we all have been feeling the call to reach out to high profile people who we believe would actually get involved and make a huge difference in Rodney’s case. And at this point, it seems that this is what we all need to do to bring my brother home.
If you’ve been keeping up with my family’s fight, you know we’ve been protesting proclaiming Rodney’s innocence literally for decades. All these major networks already have documentaries and specials which show my brother is innocent (others show there is strong evidence of his innocence). They show Jimmy Fennell murdered Stacey Stites and it’s so evident! Yet, Texas and Bastrop County have still been trying to execute/ murder my brother Rodney for a crime he did not commit– in fact, another man’s crime! While we plan to protest Bryan Goertz’s motion to set a November 20 execution date as a blatant retaliation to our SCOTUS trip, we know we need to do more and it’s becoming more clear what we need to do.
Our greatest, most immediate need right now is to get high profile people on board who are committed to ending wrongful convictions and police and government corruption.
Right now, it’s CRITICAL for us to reach out to members of The Exonerated Five (Korey Wise, Dr. Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana, Antron McCray, and Kevin Richardson), Kim Kardashian West, Oprah, Ava Duvernay, Beyoncé, and others who have helped people in similar situations. One way to get their ear and their involvement is to get Mama and me on The Breakfast Club AM Morning Show— and fast! This morning show is a huge platform and we’re confident hearing our story on there would get their attention. We’re in the process of trying to get on The Breakfast Club AM Morning Show to let the world know about the lethal corruption that’s been going on in Bastrop and in Texas as a whole. We then will ask the people I mentioned earlier that we need their help freeing my brother Rodney!
We’re asking for help from any and everybody to make sure justice is done! We’re also asking for help to make sure that we get on that radio show ASAP so we can amplify our story and reach as many people as possible who can either help us bring Rodney home or get him a new trial to prove he’s innocent so he can come home! I think that’s the only thing- in addition to protesting- that’s going to make a difference at this point. We need help getting these high profile people on board to shine the spotlight on my brother’s case. Any help or suggestions to make this happen are appreciated.
