The team behind the campaign to help Ronald L. Sanford

The team behind the campaign to help support, and hopefully, free Ronald are a bunch of like minded individuals who came together with a set of skills that they could use to help build this campaign into something. In our set teams we are currently working hard to get the ball rolling, and we are doing well!

The teams within the group are as follows..

Family liaison
Legal research
Fundraising
PR & Communications
Support Engagement
Political/Celebrity lobbying
Campaign Strategy

I will be updating this blog with important news of how the campaign is going & what we are all doing during this process. Due to the nature of the case, sometimes blog posts may be sporadically, that doesn’t mean that following this blog isn’t important if you want to keep up to date with what is happening behind the scenes!
Please, If you haven’t already go and sign the petition here. We are at 1,050 signatures which is a fantastic amount of support, I truly thank you if you’ve already signed. We’re hoping to get 10,000 people to sign so if you haven’t already, do it now.

There seems to be a series of non-existent links (ie the petition) and a lack of leadership in this campaign online? I’d like to help but am finding it difficult to get the most up-to-date information.

  • Keep trying please I think we can get so much more Support?

    My name is samara and I am britsish.

    After watching Trevor McDonald’s docunebtary and seeing Sanfords case my world view has been completely rocked.***

    Sanford has transformed from a mindless youngster to a real man. Living in Britain I see the same transformation as an 1& year old girl. Many boys my age have a violent mentality and do not fear consequences however I have seen the transform into real mature men. After learning from the consequences. I believe if someone held a conversation with Sanford oblivious to his past they would think he was a regular well rounded knowledgable man. And I don’t think anyone can doubt that. The man has spent 25 years essentially a life sentence. It’s time for him to prove to us he is no longer a mindless young boy. I think everyone must know this deep Down. I would really appreciate it if you could email me to keep me updated on the case!

    Ronald L Sanford: Beyond redemption?

    If you have no idea what this is all about, read the first article about Ronald Sanford HERE. The second updated article containing more details about the circumstances can be read HERE.

    If you are one of the 452,000 people who read the two previous articles, or one of the three thousand five hundred people who sent emails to the writer of these pieces or the hundred or so people who placed heart felt comments, have you considered what it was about Ronald Sanford’s two interviews with Sir Trevor McDonald that made you feel the way you did?

    One person wrote to say that he was so overwhelmed and dismayed by this case, that he thought, stupidly, he would probably be the only one watching who had any empathy for Ronald Sanford.

    Ronald Sanford today.

    He was wrong. Many, many people empathized, and the question is, why? What was it about Ronald Sanford that made you say, ‘This is not right. This is not justice.’

    Firstly, he does not deny his crime. He clearly states that he ‘pushed’ his way into the elderly sisters’ house and committed a double homicide. We should never forget that this was a brutal crime committed against two elderly ladies.

    However, what Ronald Sanford does not say is that he was accompanied by Sean Rowe, aged 15, who later plea bargained with police and served 2 years and 2 days for ‘assisting a robbery.’ At no time during either interview did Ronald Sanford deny his guilt. But if you’ve read the other articles you’ll know that it’s quite possible he didn’t strike the fatal blows that killed the elderly ladies. He is serving 170 years purely on the testimony of Sean Rowe, who simply said to police, ‘I didn’t do it.’

    Secondly, Ronald Sanford was just 13 years old when he was involved in this crime. Nobody can say for sure who struck the fatal blows that killed the two elderly sisters, it may well have been Ronald Sanford, it may not, we just don’t know, but surely that should be considered as having a reasonable doubt.

    Look at the picture on the left and ask yourself how much punishment should be inflicted on a boy aged 13 (15 when he was sentenced) before we feel justice has been served. If the judge had allowed his convictions to run concurrently instead of consecutively, Ronald Sanford would have served a 50 year sentence for murder. With good behavior he would have served 21 years and been released in 2010. How much punishment is enough for a crime committed by a boy barely into his teens? 20 years, 50 years, 170 years?

    Thirdly, either Ronald Sanford is the world’s greatest actor, or he really is a polite, genial and highly intelligent man. Most people believe he is the latter.  Somebody said, ‘Give me the child and I will show you the man’.  Bitter and twisted psychotic killers do not write optimistic quotes on the walls of their cells.

    And yet, people are still asking what it was that made Ronald Sanford different from the other inmates interviewed by Sir Trevor. Here are just three who you would not want to run into. They will not be named.

    Do you remember this inmate. He’s on death row for murdering a policeman during a robbery that went wrong.

    Mid twenties, a career criminal who knew exactly what he was doing. He said, ‘I’m the kinda guy that deserves to be in prison. If I’m fired from my job and I can’t get a job, I’ll get a gun and pay my bills and not think anything of it at all.’

    He says it himself. He chose his career path and if you happen to stand in his way, he’ll shoot you. Prison was made for this kind of guy.

    What about the inmate pictured right. Did you feel any empathy for his situation? Let me remind you exactly what he said.

    This man said, ‘When I come at you, I wasn’t going to stick you an inch, I was going to run you all the way through.’ He’s a cold blooded murderer and yet he seems to have more freedom than Ronald Sanford. I’m really struggling to understand what is going on in The Indiana Department of Correction.

    And then, of course, there was this man. Probably the most hated man in the prison. In his own words he entered a house and decided to rape the young woman inside. He then slit the throats of the woman and her four year old child.

    This man was in his mid twenties when he committed the crime and admits the best place for him is prison.  Would anybody disagree with him?

    All of these men pictured above were adults who knew exactly what they were doing and what the penalties were. Serving prison time is part of their life, a consequence to their actions they never believed would happen.

    If you are still wondering why you feel empathy for Ronald Sanford and not the other inmates, it has to be because something does not feel right about the circumstances and length of sentence meted out to a boy in his early teens. Yes, of course he deserved to be punished, but is there no rehabilitation for a man who appears to bear no grudges?

    Ronald Sanford’s cell.

    Despite the efforts of the hundreds of people who have written to influential figures in America asking for somebody to review the case, the answer is always negative; there will be no rehabilitation for Ronald Sanford. And not only is there no chance of rehabilitation, there is little or no chance that he will live long enough to face a parole board.

    The author of these articles has asked The Indiana Department of Correction several questions relating to Ronald Sanford and every question has been stonewalled.

    These pictures were published in a previous article but I make no excuse for using them again. Click on the pictures above and below to see just how small Ronald Sanford’s cell is. (The man pictured is Sir Trevor McDonald whose television program highlighted this story.)

    If you kept an animal in a space this size animal welfare would file a court order against you for cruelty.

    It has been said previously, but it has to be said again, if the Department of Correction is going to lock a man up for a hundred years, for goodness sake, give him a decent cell to live in.

    As highlighted above, not everybody deserves a second chance. Some of the inmates serving time in Indiana State Prison are beyond redemption. Ronald Sanford, having spent 24 of his 39 years locked down in a cell 6ft x 8ft, is not one of those inmates. The authorities still have time to reconsider his case.
