Steven Jay Russell is the gay con man subject of the upcoming movie, "I Love You Phillip Morris." You can read about him on Wikipedia:
and there is a great article at the Observer: http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/2009/sep/06/steven-russell-elizabeth-day-jim-carrey
He is in prison for a sentence of over 100 years, depending on what article you read, it varies. He is extremely intelligent and his crimes, per se, have mainly been victimless. Yes, he has escaped prison a number of times. Yes, he continues to revert to his old ways. But this man is extremely intelligent, (apparently he has an IQ of 163), and with an intellect like that, I believe, letting him (and his brain) rot in prison is a sin and a complete miscarriage of justice.
If you read more about Steve, see the movie, and agree with me, please sign the petition. There is also a site I started on facebook to "Free Steven Jay Russell."
