35,000 Sign Online Recall Petition Against Grenada D.a.

Chicot Memorial

GRENADA, MS (Ben Caxton) — An investigative report showing that Grenada D.A. Doug Evans’ office strikes five times as many black jurors as white jurors has resulted in 35,000 people signing an online removal petition. The report was featured in an internet podcast called “In the Dark” which looked at jury information for 225 of 418 criminal trials conducted between 1992 and 2017 in Evans’ district. Evans, who denies any bias, told the Greenwood Commonwealth newspaper that he has no idea where the figures came from, and hasn’t listened to the podcast. Still, the Mississippi Supreme Court has questioned his jury selection practices in at least one high profile case previously.

    Why is Doug Evans still employed? Im sure there are so many more innocent individuals in jail because of him and his team. Doug Evans should live the rest of his life behind bars for all the lives he has ruined. Im sure Curtis Flowers will be free soon based on the real evidence and Doug Evans should take is place.
