Dear Mr. Frederickson:
September 6, 2011. the Governor's office received your letter and supporting documents dated August 24, 2011 regarding your daughter Elizabeth Diane Downs. In that letter you requested that the Governor consider your plea that her conviction was a miscarriage of justice.
Your daughter has the right to request executive clemency from the Governor. Enclosed is an executive clemency packet. While you may prepare the application and provide the information. the Oregon statute requires your daughter personally sign the application and the clemency affidavit. In addition the clemency affidavit must be signed in front of a notary and copies of the application must be sent to the appropriate parties listed in the affidavit.

Diane Down's case enjoys finally Institutional Blackmailing: Confess to the crime and we, the OR Governor, release act of grace. Inmate's fair response: "I did not shoot my children and I won't say I did just to get out of prison. I will stay here in prison and rot rather than say I shot my children." As early as 2007, there was an unsuccessful attempt at blackmail by Judge Malcolm F. Marsh, who stated: “Notably, Downs has not accepted responsibility for her crimes of conviction, and maintains to this day that the state authorities framed her.”. . .
'09 I wrote to OR Governor: "The demand for an admission of guilt is illegal, be it before or after conviction! Otherwise we would be finding ourselves transported back to the time of the Spanish Inquisition and torture."

Diane Downs: Child Killer or Victim of Injustice?
Tim King Aug-17-2012
Incarcerated for nearly 30 years, Downs maintains her innocence and a look at the case explains why.
(SALEM) - Here's the first question: what kind of person would set out to Murder their own children, deny the crime, and then choose to spend the rest of their natural life in prison rather than simply admitting they did it and being released?
The second question is, what has happened in Oregon's courts to make facts become less than what they are? Jurisprudence is at the root of justice and the United States is a nation that treasures this concept, but I seriously question whether it is alive and well in this northwest state.
Let's get this out of the way; I am a journalist who has explored several convictions in the state of Oregon that I believe are false. One is Frank Gable; the man convicted in the Murder of former Oregon Corrections Chief Michael Francke, and another is a young African-American man from Eugene, Oregon, Darryl Sky Walker, who was convicted for killing a fellow university student; a Portland judge's son, even though another suspect bragged over throwing the fatal blow. Another is the man serving 19 years for Sex Abuse in a case that DNA proves impossible, his name is Terrence Kimble. Another is the former prison guard, William Coleman, who faced 40 years on false charges at one point, but was found not guilty of Oregon's charges by a unanimous jury verdict. His real 'crime' was blowing the whistle on racist hate crimes while employed at the state prison.
The list goes on.
This is a brand new video from Salem-News.com that features Tim King interviewing James Fredrickson, Diane Downs' brother, and Eric Mason, award-winning reporter-turned-private investigator.

Following my retirement I went from occasional work to full-time (in honorary capacity)
with a registered society for the support of offenders.
This is within the Association for Probation and Offenders’ Assistance of my country.
My RESUME was first published by the www.patrickcrusade.org website years ago.
So time has come now to renew and update continously.
I also added various pictures of the evil one, not necessarily name it an 'axis'.
J.W.Goethe’s Faust taught of the many faces and shapes Mephisto, the great deceptor,
takes to fool us. He who loves to enter ourselves (Mark 7,21).
First details were given by Thomas A. Billings, PhD in his Meditations
Septimus Bainbridge Jobes, Diane's father and Deborah Frisch PhD shared many,
many hours since in this incredible case unworthy of civilized democracies.
You are invited to continue, reading accounts under
far as rights are touched about one or another of the used
pictures be kind and let me know.
