Battle Panda is organizing a blogswarm on behalf of death row inmate Corey Maye. Maye is a black man from Mississippi who was sentenced to death for shooting a police officer who burst into his home on a late-night no-knock drug raid. The raid awakened Maye who, fearing for his own safety and that of his 18-month-old daughter, fatally shot Officer Ron Jones. It turned out that the police had raided the wrong half of the duplex.
