The criminal justice system in the USA is flawed. As early as 1928, Judge Sturgess said, “Justice is open to everyone in the same way as the Ritz Hotel.” The quote continues to apply today in 2017. Accused individuals with resources to pay for top notch defense attorneys to ensure their constitutional rights are not violated receive “justice”. The indigent who are all too often from the poor side of town and minorities with dark skin get what they can afford. The justice system does with them as it pleases.
When the accused is financially able to hire the best attorneys, investigators, and expert witnesses and in the process expose the lies and falsehoods in the government’s case against him, the adversarial justice system in the US operates as it should.
The fact of the matter is that in the State of Texas, police and state prosecutors all too often withhold key exculpatory evidence that would tend to prove the accused is innocent. They intentionally violate the laws and procedures and employ a win at any cost mentality when seeking a conviction. In the end they believe the “end justifies the means.”
It is an understood fact that if a prisoner is sent to death row it is unlikely they will ever have the resources to properly mount an effort to prove his constitutional rights were violated, that key evidence was withheld, or that other blatant procedural misconduct was used to send the accused to death row. They choose poor minorities because they know they will be able to execute them regardless if they are guilty or innocent.
The Campaign for Justice and Freedom for Charles Don Flores has been created to enlist the services of the best legal representation for Charles Don Flores and provide resources for these attorneys to hire top notch investigators and expert witnesses to prove that Charles Don Flores is an innocent man who has been wrongly convicted and sentenced to death for a crime he did not commit. But we can’t do it alone. We need everyone who hears of this severe injustice that has been committed against Charles Don Flores to help with donating funds, time and energy to this campaign. You can help us reach our ultimate goal to see Charles transition into part II of his life forever free away from the new age death camp called Texas death row.
