THE USSC HAS LIFTED THE RESTRAINING ORDER. EXECUTION SCHEDULED TO BE CARRIED OUT AT 6pm TONIGHT PLEASE Urge Governor Bryant to call off the execution of Hart Turner
Hart Turner, a man suffering from a life-long, hereditary and crippling mental illness, is scheduled for execution by lethal injection in Mississippi on Wednesday, February 8. Numerous mental health experts have reviewed the case and concluded that Hart was suffering from a severe mental disorder at the time of the crimes which would have impacted his moral and legal culpability. Executing the severely mentally ill is cruel and inhumane.
Take action: Contact Governor Bryant today and urge him to call off the execution of Hart Turner.
The Hon. Phil Bryant Governor of Mississippi (601)359-3150 Camp.Murphy@governor.ms.gov
