The state killing of #NateWoods is just another sad, sick reminder that to many in the criminal justice system, #BlackLivesDontMatter. They are inventing new ways to kill unarmed black men. My prayers go out to his family. This is too much. #BLM…
There is no way possible that a black man could be a frightened, innocent bystander to the senseless killing of those 3 police officers. He’s black, and was in the vicinity, so it was necessary for him to die, along with the person who pulled the trigger. Wrong place, wrong skin.
Alabama continues to be the only state in which a jury doesn’t have to vote unanimously for the death penalty (which is what occurred with Woods). Unarmed, nonviolent, fully compliant with the police - but he was black and poor. That’s all that needed to be known.

Just got off phone with Kimberly Chisholm Simmons, sister of Harley Chisholm III, one of 3 Birmingham police officers killed in 2004. She does not support the execution of #NateWoods. "He did not kill my brother. This is so unjust. I don't understand," she told me in tears. 1/5
She tried to contact @GovernorKayIvey, but was told the Gov was in a meeting. She spoke with a staff member, expressing her deep misgivings about Nate's death warrant. She asked them to please grant mercy. She was told someone would call her back. No one ever did. 2/5
"They just want him dead. I did at one time too. But when God gets hold of your heart and demands forgiveness and mercy, I have to follow that," she said. "I hated them but I knew in my heart that was wrong. It saddens me that an innocent man will be executed." 3/5
