"PLEASE BE ADVISED"
Due to the financial straits, the Family & Friends of Isaiah 'Button' Givens are unable to purchase the additional web pages at this time to present "The Defense" of Isaiah 'Button' Givens for review. We can tell you this, his "alibi" witness was the late "Nadirah Williams", a past President of the Richard Allen Tenant Council and an employee at the time of the Philadelphia Housing Authority, who was well known as a "Community Advocate" through out the inner-city of Philadelphia, and known for her bold and blunt truthfulness. However, his attorney presented an "antagonistic defense" at the behest of his then fiance' Sabrina 'Breenie' Hall. Isaiah 'Button' Givens defense will appear on this web site in the very near future.
The domain name, flyers and posters announcing this web site, and the purchase of its present pages, as well as the monthly maintenance fees to maintain the viewing of this web site is being solely funded by "The Family & Friends of Isaiah 'Button' Givens", because his innocence is a fact and not a make believe fiction.
Because we lack the financial stability to register as a 501-3(c) Non-Profit Organization with Tax-Exempt Statutes, which would permit for us to solicit for donations. However, if you so choose, you may, upon your own accord, present "The Family & Friends of Isaiah 'Button' Givens" a gift, which will be used solely towards the completion of this web site and an investigator to gather the needed evidence to bring this matter back before the Common pleas Court of Philadelphia.
Then, please visit my Contact Page for information on how to make a gift.

To Whom It May Concern:
"Truth is like the stars, it shows only in the darkness of night. Truth is like all beautiful things in this world, it reveals its attractiveness only to those who have first felt the influence of falsehood, which brings about bitterness being mixed into every mouthful which an individual drinks from the cup of life.
For well over two (2) decades, the discussions and whispers concerning my innocence, has been a fact void of fiction. Yet, I sit and rot in a cell without discussions and whispers being spoken into the right ears to facilitate the unlocking of my physical being. The truth is never full when it lies amongst a belly full of lies and liars.
The worst solitude to have in life, is to be lied upon and convicted of anything,while the consensus standy-by and allow for the truth to go untold, of the suffrage of an innocent individual, and no one does or says anything to help the innocent of its suffrage. There is nothing more deranged as such.
Everyone has fears. No man or woman should be without any. A person claiming to be void of fears, is an individual void of sense.
Unashamed, my worst fear is of dying in prison as an innocent man, who has been falsely accused and unjustly convicted, and at my funeral, the host of individuals, as they parade by my casket, all of a sudden see me laying before them still and embalmed, and begin to have a conscious and wish that they had spoken up and/or assisted me in obtaining that which should have never been taken from me, which was my freedom and liberty. Deep fear to have huh?
Honestly, I have no hate or ill will towards "Deborah & Taconya Jones,Debra 'Black Gail' Thomas, Timothy Ford aka Timothy Crosby, Lynn 'Effie' McFadden, Detective Mary Quinn, Assistant District Attorney Roger King, Philadelphia Homicide Detective Michael Bittenbender, Latifa Ford and Tyrina Thompson." In all actually, "I forgive you all" for your selfishness in only seeking to acquire your aspirations at the expense of my liberty. For, you all have helped to create me into a man of virtue. For the past have given me experience and memories, the present gives me challenges and opportunities, the future gives me vision and hope. Therefore, with a clear conscious as an innocent man in prison, I am able to live each fraction of each second of each minute of every hour of each day, for well over two (2) decades, unafraid of tomorrow, or ashamed of yesterday. For the courage which I have acquired, is not about having the strength to go on. It consist of being able to go on when it seems as it I no longer have the strength to prevail.
However, I would be both a fool and a hypocrite not to beg for the assistance of any/all of the former prosecution witnesses who once upon a time, told of a prolific fairy tale, to now make amends of your past sins. For it is never too late to tell the truth. Nevertheless, rather you tell the truth or not, today or tomorrow, the truth has a way of finding its own direction home, as you can see form this web site.
If anyone can assist me, please do not hesitate to do so. For if the shoes were on your foot, would you want any/all assistance in bringing forth the truth? Sure you would. Please Help Me!!"
Thank you for reviewing my web site, and I look forward to hearing from you soon and/or seeing you in a courtroom near you.
Wishing you GodSpeed,
