Justice for The Buffalo 5!
In 1976 and '77, John Walker, Jr., Darryl Boyd, Darren Gibson, Floyd Martin, and Tyrone Woodruff, five black Buffalo, New York teenagers found themselves falsely accused, arrested, indicted, tried and convicted, for a brutal murder that they did not commit. Four were convicted. During the investigation and the subsequent trials, there were numerous instances of Brady Violations. A Brady Violation occurs when there is material evidence that is of an exculpatory nature, but it is withheld from the defense attorney(s). This important evidence was withheld by the Buffalo Police Department, or was ignored completely by the county's district attorney.
Altogether, the young men of The Buffalo 5 spent close to 100 years in prison. They were released to lifetime parole conditions. Now, in the year 2020, two are deceased. Two of the remaining members, John Walker, Jr. and Darryl Boyd, are now seeking a complete exoneration of The Buffalo 5. To achieve this ultimate turnaround, they will have to compel the Office Of The Erie County District Attorney to revisit Indictment No. 41-413. They will need the support of not only their friends and neighbors, but the entire global community.
The proceeds from these shirts go directly to supporting the exoneration of The Buffalo 5.
