Protest the execution of James VanDivner scheduled for August 17th in Pennsylvania!!

Abusive childhood may have contributed to his 30 year record of violent crimes. He fatally shot his ex-girlfriend, Michelle Cable, 41, in the head in 2004 and was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to death by a jury.

Gov. Ed Rendell has signed an execution warrant for a 61-year-old Fayette County man on death row who lost his state Supreme Court argument that he is ineligible for the death penalty because he is mentally retarded.
