CLEMENCY FOR KJ
Kevin “KJ” Johnson, a Black youth, was sentenced in 2007 for the 2005 murder of William McEntee. KJ was 19 years old at the time. According to community activist Jamala Rogers, “William McEntee was a veteran Kirkwood cop who was known to be anything but a model officer in neighboring Meacham Park, a predominant and historic black community."
Despite numerous erroneous and unfair court rulings, grossly ineffective counsel, and racist prosecutorial policies, Kevin remains on Missouri’s death row. On May 11th, 2022, the Missouri Attorney General motioned the Missouri Supreme Court to set an execution date.
We are asking you to help KJ by signing a petition as we call upon Missouri Governor Parson to spare KJ's life, and grant him clemency.
