State vs. Reed

If you haven't yet gotten a chance to watch the award-winning
documentary "State vs. Reed," then you're in luck. KLRU (Austin's PBS
affiliate) has just recently begun a new series that will feature
several of the best films from the 2006 SXSW Film Festival. "State
vs. Reed" will be aired this Tuesday evening (11/7) at 7pm on KLRU as
part of this series. Click here for the schedule:

This is great news! "State vs. Reed" is an excellent presentation of
all the issues surrounding Rodney Reed's case. Rodney Reed was
convicted in 1998 for the murder of Stacey Stites. However, as the
film rightly shows, the case for Rodney Reed's innocene is
overwhelming. You can watch the trailer at Youtube.

Please plan to watch the film Tuesday evening. And tell everyone you
know to tune in as well. The more people who know about Rodney's
case, the better. Rodney and the Reed family need everyone's help in
getting him off of Death Row.

One way to help, is to come to our regular weekly meetings. This
week, we'll be meeting in our usual spot in CMA 3.130 on Monday
(11/6). The meeting begins at 7pm.

I cannot believe what I saw tonight on KLRU. My heart goes out to Rodney and his family. I am going to try and attend a meeting in the near future.

I am in complete disbelief.
