Jim Morrison Pardoned!!!
December 9, 2010
This page and others linked are now archived here to memorialize this great occasion! This never would have happened if it weren't for all of you who supported us and signed the petition!
In 1997 The DCM began a polite letter campaign to request that then Governor, Lawton Chiles review the case and grant Morrison an expungement. At this time we were told that for this to happen either Jim Morrison's family would have to petition the court or we must obtain a pardon first and then an expungement could be sought. As of today, December 9, 2010 we have done this! Governor Crist has successfully presented Morrison's case to the board and it was passed unanimously. The trial was unconstitutional, this should have required merely a simple request. However, the matter was ignored. Additional research was done and now we have more reasons to force this issue.
One fact often overlooked about the 1969 event referred to as the "Miami Incident" is that no matter what happened at that concert or how you feel about the man himself, the prosecution and agencies involved in this matter denied James Douglas Morrison his constitutional rights! The US Government, OUR Government, misused their power and nothing has been done to rectify the situation. This type of activity continues to be a threat to all.
Whether you're interested in Jim Morrison as a member of the Doors, a "follower" of the concepts the group expressed, a scholar who recognizes his gift of poetry and/or an "activist" who wishes to fight against the denial of rights guaranteed under our Constitution, this matter NEEDS YOUR VOICE! It is time to do that which Jim himself had professed to be of great importance to him: CLEAR HIS NAME!! Two articles are presented: ; the first shows the incident with emphasizes on political issues that make it of tantamount concern for all US Citizens; the second views the "incident" emphasizing events/attitudes of the era.
We ask that you show your support by signing the following petition. Next, complete the downloadable forms we have supplied. They include: a form letter for your Representative and Senator, a form letter to your Governor, a form letter to Governor Charlie Crist. Download the petition in Text format or MS Word format and obtain signatures from friends and family (mail this to The DCM). The letters can be 'cut & pasted' to the email addresses obtainable through the following listing of the Senators, Representatives and Governors. If a normal "cut/paste" does not work then "right - mouse button paste" to the email -- questions? Email me for assistance! (firstname.lastname@example.org).
This is in some sense "David fighting Goliath" BUT we can make a difference - Please take the time to add your voice to this cause! The Doors have given to us and now is the time to give something back in return.
