#JusticeforDavisBrothers Governor Asa Hutchinson must GRANT TIME CUT/CLEMENCY NOW!
Grant Time Cut/Clemency for Lamarr Davis and Arthur Davis, Jr. Now.
Why is this important?
In 1994, 2 Black Men Lamarr Davis, 21 years of age and Arthur Davis Jr., 25 years of age, were charged with aggravated robbery. No one was shot, stabbed, or killed during this robbery which took place at Prattsville One Stop store in Grant County outside of Sheridan Arkansas (a very well known racist area).
Both of these brothers were given a sentence of life in prison without parole. The robbery was a first offense for Lamarr Davis. They received excessive sentencing, a direct violation of their eighth amendment.The Eighth Amendment of the Constitution states: 'Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted. ' The amendment is meant to safeguard Americans against excessive punishments.
The Davis brothers were sentenced to life and have served 26 years to date. They have been left to spend the remaining days of their lives in prison and their crime does not fit with the time they received. We must act NOW to end this racially charged excessive sentencing. We are demanding justice for the Davis brothers. They have given up so much of their lives to the prison system and Enough is Enough. We Must seek just for this injustice NOW!
Sign the petition demanding Governor Asa Hutchinson immediately grant time cut/clemency for the Davis brothers.
