Elena Herrada Appears on Radio Show Today to Discuss Efrén's Case and Pending Commutation Request

Please click the play button on the left side of the flash player below to hear an interview done this morning on WDET 101.9 FM Detroit Public Radio. The show featured Elena Herrada, The Injustice Must End (TIME) Detroit Committee, Co-Chair. Elena discussed Efrén's case and pending commutation request on the show.

A blog post was left on the WDET blog by TIME Committee member, Mike Kelly, which was read on the air during Elena's interview. This is the full text of the wonderful post that Mike left:
The injustice being suffered by Efren Paredes is of course terrible for him and if only for that reason this innocent man must be freed through commutation. However there is a major stake we all have in seeing justice done because everyone is at risk when innocent citizens are sacrificed for political expedience, career advancement or racism within a local power structure.

Everyone with a concern for living in a society where laws protect rather than threaten liberty should go to Efren’s blog at , review the information and petition the Governor for commutation.

Time is of the essence. Efren is contributing to a better society right now from prison, just think how much more he will do when he is finally freed. Many good folks are rightly concerned over broad issues of social justice and world peace but it is also vital that people of conscience also take action to right the wrongs done to individuals.

Educate yourself and help spread the word. I believe that our prayers are another way of taking effective action in support of Efren, his family and the future of our State.

Mike Kelly, Harper Woods
