Tennessee: Vigil Opposing the Execution of Sedley Alley

Tennessee Coalition to Abolish State Killing

Interfaith Service and Meditation followed by a Vigil

Opposing the Execution of Sedley Alley

Tuesday May 16th, 2006 … 9 p.m. – 1 a.m.

Riverbend Maximum Security Institute, 7475 Cockrell
Bend Blvd.

Contact: Randy Tatel, 615-473-2950 or 615-463-0070


Opponents of the death penalty may arrive beginning at 8pm … An Interfaith service begins at 9 pm running through 10 pm (Reverend Ed Sanders will deliver the evenings reflection, other faith leaders will share appropriate prayers, music, and silence) ... the vigil ensues until either a firm stay or the execution.

Sedley Alley was convicted of the 1985 murder of Suzanne Marie Collins, but significant questions about the reliability of his conviction remain. While the state possesses physical evidence that could be tested for DNA, to ascertain definitively if Sedley Alley is guilty or innocent, the state and Governor Phil Bredeson have refused to release the evidence for testing. This is despite the fact that evidence, which was withheld from the defense at trial, shows that Alley was already under police surveillance at the time of the murder.

The service and vigil are open to all who oppose executions for either moral or pragmatic policy reasons.

TCASK as an organization expects any individuals or groups of individuals attending a vigil to conduct themselves in accordance with the general principles of non-violence.

The utmost respect for the victim’s family in both conduct and statements should be shown.

Anyone making personal statements to, about, or against a guard or other RMSI employee will

be asked to leave the premises.

"significant questions about the reliability of his conviction remain." No, there weren't any such questions. Alley took the police to the scene of the murder and showed them not only the spot where he killed her, but the tree he got the branch from that he impaled her on.

"While the state possesses physical evidence that could be tested for DNA, to ascertain definitively if Sedley Alley is guilty or innocent..." Whoa. Hold it right there. DNA testing does no such thing. It does NOT test for guilt or innocence.

"...the state and Governor Phil Bredeson have refused to release the evidence for testing." Wrong again. Only the court has that power, and they rightfully determined that, no matter what matches they got from DNA testing, Alley's detailed confession provided rock solid evidence containing details that only the murderer could know.

"This is despite the fact that evidence, which was withheld from the defense at trial, shows that Alley was already under police surveillance at the time of the murder." Complete, utter hogwash.

You folks picked the wrong case for your usual shenanigans. This one did real damage to your cause, due to the sheer idiocy of your claims about this sociopath.
