“State vs. Reed” is a documentary detailing the murder of Stacey Stites of Bastrop, Texas and the subsequent arrest, conviction and death sentence handed down to Rodney Reed. This story explores the mishandling of evidence, the possible law enforcement cover up and the lack of proper legal defense for Rodney Reed.
Post-film discussion will include a member of Rodney Reeds family and Rick Halperin, who is a recognized international authority on the death penalty, genocide, slavery, human trafficking, torture and human rights. He is a past Chair of the Board of Directors of Amnesty International, USA. He served on the Board of Directors for several organizations, including the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty, Human Rights Initiative, Capital Punishment Investigation and Education Services, Jefferson-Titus Refugee Foundation, Center for Survivors of Torture and the International Rescue Committee.
Participants will be invited to participate in letter writing and call-in actions calling for Rodney Reed’s clemency. Presently, Rodney Reed’s execution date is scheduled for July 8th!
