UCLA HILLEL's RABBI SEIDLER-FELLER ASKED TO JOIN THE CALL: STOP KEVIN COOPER'S EXECUTION

by Human Rights Alert, NGO Friday, Dec. 17, 2010 at 11:46 PM
jz12345@earthlink.net PO Box 526

Under conditions that today prevail in the justice system in Los Angeles County and California, it is inconceivable to continue with executions. California Gov Arnold Schwarzenegger should stop the execution of Kevin Cooper and impose a moratorium on the death penalty in California.

UCLA HILLEL's RABBI CHAIM SEIDLER-FELLR IS ASKED TO JOIN THE CALL: STOP THE EXECUTION OF KEVIN COOPER; END THE DEATH PENALTY IN CALIFORNIA!

PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION AT:

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/stop-cooper-execution-end-death-penalty-in-caifornia/

Los Angeles, December 16 - Human Rights Alert and Joseph Zernik, PhD, asked UCLA Hillel's Rabbi Chaim Seidler-Feller to join the call upon California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to stop the execution of Kevin Cooper and impose a moratorium on the death penalty in California.

As noted in the petition itself, reasonable doubts remained regarding the guilt of Kevin Cooper, which led five federal judges to take issue with their colleagues' decision to put a stop to Cooper's appeals.

Moreover, corruption of the justice system in Los Angeles County, California has been well-documented for over a decade in official, scholarly, and media reports.

Thousand of Rampart-FIPs (Falsely Imprisoned Persons) - victims of court corruption of the courts in Los Angeles County, which was uncovered in the Rampart scandal investigation (1998-2000) remain imprisoned to this date, and judges of the Los Angeles Court were documented as objecting to their release, since it would lead to "collapse of the justice system".

"Corruption of the courts and the legal profession" in California was also noted in a recent report of the United Nations Human Rights Council, which called upon the US to abolish the death penalty.

Therefore, the petition called upon California Gov Arnold Schwarzenegger to stop the execution of Kevin Cooper and to impose a moratorium on the death penalty in California.

UCLA Hillel's stated mission aims to "help change the world through Tikun Olam".

The Jewish community is vastly over-represented among judges and attorneys in California, and the Jewish community historically held itself committed to Human and Civil Rights in the United States. Therefore, Human Rights Alert repeatedly asserted that the Jewish community must deem itself accountable for the conditions of the justice system in California and the United States.

Asking leading rabbis of the day to voice their opinions on current issues has been a Jewish tradition for some 1,500 years.

Stop the Execution of Kevin Cooper; End the Death Penalty in California!



Target: California Gov Arnold Schwarzenegger:

We, the undersigned call upon Governor Schwarzenegger to stop the execution of Kevin Cooper and impose a moratorium on the death penalty in California:

1. Reasonable doubts remain regarding the guilt of Kevin CooperThe legal effort to prevent the execution of Kevin Cooper has run its course. Unless the governor of California intervenes, Cooper is likely to be put to death next year for the brutal 1983 murders of a Chino Hills couple, their 10-year-old daughter and an 11-year-old houseguest.

Just one eyewitness survived the horrific scene, a 9-year-old boy whose throat had been sliced. His initial account of the attack is one of many disturbing contradictions that led five federal judges to take issue with their colleagues' decision to put a stop to Cooper's appeals.

2. Corruption of the justice system in Los Angeles County, California was well-documented for over a decade.Official, scholarly, and media reports have documented the corruption of the justice system in California for over a decade.

Reports of the Rampart corruption scandal (1998-2000) established that thousands of innocent persons were falsely imprisonment for long terms through framing of evidence, extraction of confessions under torture, and perjury of police. The victims %u2013 the Rampart-FIPs (Falsely Imprisoned Persons) %u2013 mostly blacks and Latinos, were estimated by various groups at 10,000-30,000. Regardless, judges of the Los Angeles Court have refuses to free the Rampart-FIPs, and the US Department of Justice refuses to take action either.

2. "Corruption of the courts and the legal profession" in California was noted in a recent report of the United Nations Human Rights Council, which called upon the US to abolish the death penalty.As part of the first ever Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of Human Rights in the United States by the Human Rights Council of the United Nations, official report noted %u201Ccorruption of the courts and the legal profession%u201D in California.

The United Nations Human Rights Council also called upon the United States to abolish the death penalty.
