J. Cole has joined Kim Kardashian in a life-or-death race to save the condemned Julius Jones. Jones was sentenced to death row after the 1999 murder of Paul Howell. He has maintained his innocence since the day of the shooting.
Jones’ case has garnered major interest from celebrities and the public at-large. There is compelling evidence that he is innocent of Howell’s murder. Along with J. Cole, Kim Kardashian has been serving as a personal support system to Julius’ family. Cole took to Twitter to express his feelings on the matter.
“Read this please. Then share. oklahoma is a day away from executing a man. The evidence that this man is innocent is overwhelming. So much so that the state parole board recommended to the governor that he not be executed. with 1 day left of his life, the governor hasn’t acted”
Cole was re-tweeting an earlier update given by Kim Kardashian. With one day left until the execution date, the urgency is growing. Believes in the cause are applying heavy pressure on Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt.
A recommendation was made by Oklahoma’s Pardon and Parole Board by a 3-1 vote to commute Jones’ death sentence to a sentence of life in prison with the possibility for parole. It is up to Governor Stitt to decide whether to accept their advice or sign the death warrant for Julius Jones.
J. Cole has been promoting a telephone campaign. The goal is to bomb Governor Stitt’s office with messages in support of Julius. It includes a script urging Stitt to save a wrongfully convicted man.
