Most people do not think twice about showing support for someone who is accused of a crime the person did not commit. However, if the courts think that a person is guilty of something awful, it becomes more difficult to hold the personal stance that you think that person is innocent. If you really want to support him/her, there are lots of other things you can do. For example, if you want to support Clint Lorance and the group of people who think he is innocent of murder charges supposedly committed in the line of duty, here is what you can do.
Join the Innocence Team
A group of people that push for someone's innocence and release from jail involves dozens of volunteers. Without the volunteers, there would be no effort because most people charged with crimes cannot afford to pay wages to those who are trying to release the charged or convicted persons. If you have the time to commit to organizing rallies and protests, or you really believe that someone did not commit the crimes for which he/she stands accused, then join these groups as a volunteer. The criminally charged person already has legal bills to pay and relies on the help of volunteers to get through this troublesome time.
Go Door-to-Door to Show Support
Some people, whether they are volunteers or they choose to strike out on their own to help the cause, go to door to door. They knock on every door and spend time talking about the person in question and why the volunteers think that the person is innocent. In this way, the word gets out about an injustice in the legal system. If you want, you can even start a petition for a new trial or a petition for the courts to reexamine the evidence.
Pass out Flyers, Buttons, Stickers, Etc.
Any and all informative materials require that someone find a place to distribute the materials, and that someone be present to distribute them. You could easily do that on any street corner, or in front of public places where it is legal to hand out such materials. Flyers are the most common, but buttons and stickers are more popular because people like getting these items for free. It may even encourage others to join the cause if you pick the right materials and the right spot to hand out those materials.
