Dear Gov. Gregoire,
To take a life is evil. To repeat such evil is to condone that evil. I oppose the death penalty on that principle. I am willing to pay the taxes necessary to give Darold Stenson his life. I do not believe that the end justifies the means. By showing compassion, we would show the world that the means become the end.
Please grant Darold Stenson a chance to teach us how to prevent such crimes in the future, instead of ending a life.
