Kevin Cooper is a death row inmate currently held in Californias San Quentin Prison. Cooper was convicted of four murders that occurred in the Chino Hills area of California in 1983. Since his arrest, Cooper, who is African American, has become active in writing letters from prison asserting his innocence, protesting racism in the American criminal justice system, and opposing the death penalty. His habeas corpus petitions have been denied, however, with the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit stating in 2007 that As the district court, and all state courts, have repeatedly found, evidence of Coopers guilt was overwhelming. The tests that he asked for to show his innocence once and for all show nothing of the sort. In a concurring opinion, however, Judge Margaret McKeown said she was troubled that the court could not resolve the question of Coopers guilt once and for all and noted that significant evidence bearing on Coopers culpability has been lost, destroyed or left unpursued. In a dissenting opinion written in 2009, Judge William A. Fletcher began by stating: the State of California may be about to execute an innocent man. Fletcher wrote that the police may have tampered with the evidence and that the Ninth Circuit should have reheard the case en banc and should have ordered the district judge to give Cooper the fair hearing he has never had. Five judges joined in Fletchers dissent and five more stated that Cooper has never had a fair hearing to determine his innocence.
