The Buffalo 5, are: John Walker, Jr., Darryl Boyd, Darryn Gibson (deceased), Floyd Martin (deceased), and Tyrone Woodruff.
Back during 1976 and ’77, when they all were a mere 16 years of age, they found themselves falsely accused, and wrongly arrested, indicted, tried and convicted, for a brutal murder and robbery they say they absolutely did not commit.
Now, only 3 of the original Buffalo 5 remain living, and these 3 are seeking a complete exoneration and clearing of their names. They will accomplish this worthwhile goal with plenty of global community support, which will work to compel the Office Of The Erie County District Attorney to revisit and vacate their indictment (No. 41-413).
A public rally was held to this end on July 10th at 25 Delaware, in downtown Buffalo.
The next Buffalo 5 Rally will be held on August 14th, at 3PM, in Lafayette Square. If you attend only one more rally, or donate to only one more noteworthy Cause this eventful summer, please make it this one. Because 44 years is a long time to wait for justice to be served, and no one deserves lifetime parole for a crime they did not commit.
Altogether, 3 members of the Buffalo 5- John Walker, Jr., Darryl Boyd, and Darryn Gibson- served an aggregate of 84 years in state prison. That’s almost 100 total years! People do not deserve to go to state prison for nearly a hundred years, on a wrongful conviction that they are thoroughly innocent of! The public is respectfully requested to please attend the August rally, and until then, please visit the Change.Org and GoFundMe.Com addresses below, and contribute to the petition and the legal fund, respectively. Assisting in this campaign for justice, is the renown criminal defense attorney: Mr. Paul Cambria, of the Lipsitiz Green law firm, in Buffalo.
