Ryan Ferguson, A Free Man!

Ryan Ferguson is FREE.  (I hope you have already read my posts about him. He was convicted of murder without any physical evidence whatsoever. The jury believed two witnesses who said that he had committed the murder. Years later, they both came forward and admitted that they had lied.)
Because of the name of my blog, many people get to my blog by typing in "Ryan Ferguson and girlfriend"!  I am NOT Ryan's girlfriend (but he has a beautiful one, I have seen her photo!) and I do not know him personally but I really am grateful that he has been released.  (Note, I mailed a letter of support to Ryan last Christmas, and I treasure the post-card that I got from him in reply!)  Thanks, Ryan, if you ever read this blog, just know that there are a lot of people still pulling for you.  If you are ever in Georgia, get yourself over to Stone Mountain and I will climb it with you! What do you say?!  (You will have so much to do and to learn now you have been released. Do NOT be overwhelmed by it all! Just remember the baby-boomers like me, we have had to deal with it, and we are not as young as you are...you can do it!!)

Now, this begs the question, if Ryan Ferguson is innocent, then someone is guilty of this crime. Let's hope that the REAL criminal will be found!

The facebook page has been changed to "FREED Ryan Ferguson"!  If all of those who supported him could think of sending a few dollars his way, just think of how much of a great lift that would be...the link to do that is here.

Freedom is so precious, something that we take very much for granted.
 

Straight Ahead Into The Future! Good Luck, Ryan!

    1. I would wonder what a heartfelt prayer will be said at their Thanksgiving celebration, it brings tears to my eyes to think of it.

  3. Hooray. I hope adjusting is not too traumatic for him and that he can put it behind him as much as possible. Like you I also hope that the police make a real effort to fond the guilty party.

    1. I know, you must also feel for the victim's family, to think that they now know for sure that the whoever murdered their loved one has been free all these years.

    1. He has a really positive attitude. He makes me proud to be an American, and I must admit, there are times that SOME Americans act in such a way that I can't say that!

  9. I just saw this in the news last night and thought of you. This was such a terrible miscarriage of justice. I wonder can he now sue the justice system for the loss of 10 years of his life?

    1. I am sure that lawyers are looking into it for him. In the meantime, someone has set up that website that I gave you and they are asking people to send money to help him out. I hope he gets LOTS of money to help him in his new life!
