AUSTIN, Texas — Hundreds of supporters rallied at the Governor's Mansion on Saturday for a Free Rodney Reed Rally.
With only 11 days left before Reed's scheduled execution, supporters pulled out signs and flags and called on the governor to stop Reed's execution.
"Look at the evidence, look at the testimony and put yourself in his shoes," said Reed's brother, Rodrick Reed. "Wouldn't you want this heard if you were Rodney Reed? Wouldn’t you want a new trial if you were Rodney Reed?"
Austin Mayor Steve Adler made an appearance at the rally on Saturday, saying, "It is unjust when there is a trial based on faulty evidence and unsound reported false science. We are gathered here today because what will happen without our effort is wrong and unjust and it should not and can not happen."
Prosecutors stand by their case and the guilty verdict, and numerous Appeals Court decisions have gone in the state's favor, including a U.S. Supreme Court decision not to review his case.
