Write the Board of Pardons and Paroles, and call or tweet the governor about the upcoming execution of Patrick Murphy, Jr. (#999461) on March 28th.
Mr. Murphy was sentenced to death based on the Law of Parties, as he was involved in the Texas 7 escape, which ended after the death of a police officer. Patrick Murphy was not present at the time of the murder and was not accused of shooting the officer, only of being a member of the group who participated in the escape, robbery, and murder.
