Phone Script for Governor Jerry Brown
Governor Jerry Brown
Hello, my name is _______ and my zip code is _______. I am part of Indivisible SF.
I am calling to insist that Governor Brown allow additional DNA testing for Kevin Cooper, currently on death row for a 1983 crime he quite possibly did not commit. Much of the “evidence” against Cooper has been discredited, and former California Attorney General Kamala Harris has come out in support of new testing.
Kevin Cooper has been in prison for thirty-five years and should NOT be executed for a brutal crime of which he is very likely innocent. If Governor Brown refuses additional testing, he will be complicit in the murder of a potentially innocent man and equally complicit in failing to hold the real murderer(s) to account. Thank you.
