Free Charles Pearcy IV

Free Charles Pearcy IV.
We are family members and friends who are deeply concerned about the incarceration of Charles Lewis Pearcy IV.
Our concerns involve more than our relationship with Charles. We also are taxpayers, and we are concerned about the ineffective use of public funds attributable to the incarceration of wrongfully convicted people.
We also believe the very act of incarcerating an innocent individual is morally and ethically wrong.
We, after having reviewed the available facts and information in the case of Charles Lewis Pearcy IV conclude that:
The known facts and evidence in this case prove his innocence beyond a reasonable doubt. (For information go to www.freeCLP.com)
There are wrongful convictions occurring in our courts at an alarming rate. We, as voting, taxpaying citizens of the United States of America expect our tax dollars to be well spent, and that criminals, not innocents will pay the price for wrongdoings.
We, as citizens, share the same concerns about crime that others do. But our collective observation is that the "system" is often a large part of the problem instead of being a viable element or its solution. Although the crime rate is currently dropping, the rate of incarceration in our country is rising.
Our "Tough on Crime" stance has not been a deterrent to the social problems that we have labeled crimes. Until some reason is restored concerning the number of wrongful convictions, and until we are willing to decriminalize social issues, accidents and psychological illnesses, the problems will remain unsolved.
We are seeking justice in this case, in demanding that the authorities of the State of West Virginia immediately take steps to ensure that a retrial be held or absolute pardon be granted.
We, the undersigned, are seeking justice in the case of Charles Pearcy IV, and demand that the authorities of the State of West Virginia immediately take steps to ensure that a retrial be held or absolute pardon be granted.
