Free Richard Paey!

Call Florida Governor Jeb Bush and urge him to pardon Richard Paey.

The number is 850-488-7146.

Paey just lost his appeal, which means he'll have to complete his 25-year sentence unless the Governor intervenes.

I just spoke with a nice lady at the Governor's office and informed her that Richard Paey is a paraplegic whose substantial need for pain medication resulted in a misguided conviction for drug dealing. I asked her to inform the Governor that I support the Florida Court of Appeals recommendation that he pardon Mr. Paey.

It only takes a minute and together we might be able to help make life a little more bearable for this most unfortunate man.

For a quick refresher on the case before you call, check out Maia Salavitz at The Huffington Post and Radley Balko's article in National Review Online.

Now put down your laptop and make the call. We'll still be here when you're done.

Thanks!

Call Florida Governor Jeb Bush

Unfortunately the honorable Jeb Bush is no longer in office but I'm sure if he was he would be all ears once this crap was brought to his attention. Now we have to break in and educate Charlie Crist. I just hope any replies or comments we get from him isn't along the lines of "oops".

Note: I wonder if our concerned friends (HA) with the DEA did a no knock entry by breaking down the door to the home of this dangerous wheel chair bound drug dealer and crammed guns in his face?

Unfortunately, yes.

My recollection is that they did exactly that. No time dig up a link, but I seem to recall an armed raid being a small part of this massively frustrating injustice.
