Zeigler’s case on ID TV July 11
“On July 16, 1976, William Thomas Zeigler is sentenced to death for four heinous murders he claims he didn’t commit. In 2012, over 36 years later, his is still on Florida State Prison’s death row and hoping for a reprieve. But his time may be running out.”
Defrosting Cold Cases blogger Alice de Sturler authored the book, Zeigler, though Vidster’s eyes, which detailed new information that wasn’t in the film that the Investigation Discovery Channel will replay on July 11th.
Two years have gone by since “A Question of Innocence” first aired; Tommy will endure his 38th anniversary of being wrongfully on Florida’s death row on the 16th.
What is not in the film nor in Ms. de Sturler’s book is what I’ve learned of Orange County’s history of conviction corruption … corruption that knotted Tommy’s frame-up to Gary Bennett’s 30-year-old Brevard County frame-up, which in turn is knotted to scores of other frame-ups, all of which I’ve written about at length.
It has become counterproductive to know the details of every frame-up, as Florida innocents on death row are facing two ticking time bombs – the Timely Justice Act and the international Right to Forget ruling. The former will allow Florida to bury its outrageously pervasive conviction corruption with impunity, the latter will allow the corrupt to obscure their participation via individual demands that links to sites that document their corruption be taken down from Google, etc.
As saving Tommy = Saving Tommy + Gary + countless other incarcerated innocents, upsetting Tommy’s conviction may make justice available not only within Florida’s 5th District Court of Appeals, but in Florida’s Supreme Court and perhaps even the U.S. Supreme Court … Chief Justice John Roberts washing his hands of reviewing Tommy’s case was unacceptable. As Roberts could demand that all reference to this cowardice be made unavailable via Internet searches, upsetting Tommy’s case may even cause a reversal of the Right to Forget ruling … which we need with all due haste, before thugs transform themselves into spanking clean public servants via subterfuge.
When you’re convinced that Tommy was framed, please share this post, so that others can get involved by contacting Florida Governor Rick Scott and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. They’ve both already heard from me, and find me very easy to ignore.
[Note: Should you find the Investigation Discovery film and Ms. de Sturler’s book and blog somehow unconvincing, please do not turn your back on Tommy without visiting the FreeTommyZ website, downloading and reading Phillip Finch’s Fatal Flaw and/or ordering former Orange County undersherriff’s Leigh McEarchern’s The Appearance of Justice from Amazon. Please note that Amazon.com appears to have done some Right to Forget scrubbing of their own; the description of McEachern’s book that appeared when I ordered it has been replaced with deceptive, damning nonsense. Thank you.]
