Christopher Cooper raped and then murdered 9 month-old Monica Williams. He was sentenced to 30 years to life in prison. On December 1, 2009, Christopher Cooper will appear before the Parole Board in Ohio asking to be released because "he so very remorseful for a crime committed" 30 years ago.
While he sits with his hand folded before the parole board, he is clean shaven, his nails sparkling and bright, looking like a shiny new penny, asking to be forgiven, hopeful the parole board will grant him a second chance.
We, this means you and I, have the opportunity to see that Christopher Cooper remains behind bars. I realize it is easier to email a request or a letter of protest, but, in this situation, a letter mailed with a stamp and a return address will have the impact needed to keep this man from being released on our city streets. Should he be released he may not be required to register as a sex offender as the crime happened 30 years ago. Regardless this man needs to remain in prison.
This week you will be with friends and family. Copying and paste this letter from thise blog (below) and set ip a little table near the food asking your guests before they fill a plate with food to take the letter, sign it, place it in the envelope, have the guest put their return address on the front and seal. Then place stamps on them and mail the next day at your local post office. On Sunday at church ask members to help you, hand them an evelope with the address, and a copy of the letter and ask them sign and mail it, be sure they put a return address on the envelope. Pass this on to the blogs you visit, facebook and twitter and enlist everyone''s help.
There is not a lot of time, Christopher Cooper will be before the parole Board on December 1, 2009.
