Adam Titus was convicted in Cook County, Illinois, as an accomplice to felony murder. Under Illinois law, if a person's presence at the scene of a crime can be construed as “aiding and abetting” that crime, that person can be convicted of the substantive crime itself. After Titus was found guilty, the jury at Titus’ trial for the offenses was permitted to speculate that his mere presence at the scene was sufficient to sustain a conviction. Nothing existed which could identify Titus as having been accountable for another’s actions. It had been and is still a reality that police brutality and excessive force, fueled by inflammatory publicity in the local news before and throughout the trial and fanned by the documented lawlessness, made it possible to convict Titus. The truth is simple: Adam Titus did not receive a fair trial in Cook County, Illinois. Titus had been convicted in the press and in the minds of the general public from the moment he was apprehended. The conviction was but a formality.
Thank you for reading and sharing your passion and commitment with us. Meanwhile, we in this world must remind ourselves again how we threaten our own rights and interests when we, by our silence, condone the police and State’s Attorneys use of unlawful procedures, including attacks on suspects, and use of criminal law to illegally convict. I ask you now to enter the heart and soul of Adam Titus who, despite all that has happened, preserves strength in the power of principled people to make change together for the common good of the people of the world.
