John Walker and Darryl Boyd are fighting an extraordinary battle to clear their names for a murder they had nothing to do with decades ago. Last Saturday Walker, Boyd and a host of supporters including We Are Women Warriors activists Betty Jean Grant and her daughter Sherry Sherill, returned to THE SCENE OF THE CRIME THE MEN HAD NOTHING TO WITH on Fillmore Avenue across from the Golden Nugget Inn. The work that they’ve done on their case is beyond impressive. Had their lives not been cut short at the tender age of 1 6 with wrongful imprisonment who knows what either may have become?
They presented more evidence as proof of their innocence last weekend as they read from a 1976 confidential police report – yet another piece of evidence they say was withheld from them that could have saved them decades ago, and that will hopefully help their fight for freedom today.
“On 1/8/76 the Buffalo homicide detectives knew without a shadow of a doubt that we did not have anything to do with that (murder)” declared Boyd .
After presenting their case, Vickey Ross of the Peace Center summed up the rally with these words; ‘THEY HAD NO PROOF THAT YOU DID IT. ABSOLUTE PROOF THAT YOU DID NOT. AND AFTER ALL THESE YEARS THEY ARE STILL STONWALLING YOU…!” You can support the Buffalo 5 in their fight for justice with your presence at their next rally .
