Free Gary Tyler!

To:  Bobby Jindal, Governor of Louisiana; Larry Clark, Chairman of the Louisiana Board of Pardons; Leonard “Pop” Hataway, Clement Lafleur, Henry “Tank” Powell and Kenneth Jones, members of the Louisiana Board of Pardons

We, the undersigned, believe that Gary Tyler was convicted in 1975 not by facts, but by racism, vengeance and manufactured evidence. Denied a fair trial 32 years ago, imprisoned for life for a crime he did not commit, we call on you to free Gary Tyler now.

Contact Bobby Jindal, Governor of Louisiana here.

I was waken up by a song from Chumbawamba: my name is gary tyler. this song made me sad and I wanted to know more about gary?s issue. I realized the pure injustice which he was and is still facing. The USA the land of the hope, the land of the free shouldn?t accept such racial motivated sentences. Gary I hope you are okay and awaiting you coming release.

Nichole Renae Destrehan LA
I did a report on integration in St. Charles Parish in 2008 when I was a senior in high school. This was a big part of my research, and I hope he can come and have some freedom. Given the times that this event took place, it should be understood that the trial was unfair. Imprisoned for life at such a young age is extremely harsh. Please let him go!

When is somebody with a backbone going to do the right thing. Anyone and everyone that has the power to change this and doesn't must shoulder the blame for this injustice. Seems Louisiana is hot, but not quite hot enough to burn a man's conscience eh?

I first heard the story of Gary Tyler when I was 11 years old and the band UB40 wrote a record about him. I can't believe that the self-appointed "beacon of the free world" has allowed this miscarriage of justice to go on for so long, it's an absolute disgrace. FREE GARY TYLER NOW!

The state of Louisiana know that Gary Tylers conviction is bogus. The whole affair has been based on his race. For this farce to carry on for 40 long years shows that Louisiana are still a state that carry recial discrimination. This is the saddest fact. Governor after governor haave come and gone and still not settled this injustice. How this is allowed to happen, in a country that pride themselves on being 'the land of the free' is appalling. We ask that the state of Louisiana grant a pardon for Gary Tyler, and take into account the 30 odd years he has served in prison, and set him free. Regardless of race everyone is entitled to justice.

Dear Governor,
Please don't uphold injustice. It is in your power to right the wrongs of the past.
If the UK can admit the errors of injustice in relation to findings of the Guildford 4, Birmingham 6 etc from the 1970s, surely the USA could follow suit. Make a name for yourself by doing what is right. Free Gary Tyler before it is too late
Gerrit Carter Swakopmund erongo

richard toner deltona fl
I read about Gary Tyler. I also lived in the panhandle of Florida during that time period. my question is how many other people are imprisoned for crimes that they didn't do. I have been before a judge before and watched people lie and tell the truth all at the same time. it can be done with no problem.

The evidence does not support guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Set this man free and allow him to spend what's left of his life in peace with his family.

This man should have never been arrested. If the state of LA cannot admit it's mistakes, how can they expect to move forward? Mr. Tyler should be released, and should employ a good lawyer.

in all that is fair & just (which quite clearly does not carry through to the Southern States of the USA, they are still back in the 1800 ) why has this person ( a 'BLACK MAN' ) lost 2/3 of his life locked up for a crime which stands un-proved in a free & un-racicist, 21st centery of the USA. are you such a back-ward country ? come on get with the deal,join the rest of this world we all left this behinnd years ago, come on and grow Up or are you to concerned about the "VOTES" & MONIES in your area/state ? To affride to do the right thing at long last ? !
