He shouldn't be let off, should he? These are not mitigating circumstances. I'm sure many people regret things they've done while awaiting
execution, I'm sure many see things in a different light. Either you are for the death penalty or not though, there should be no argument here that
make any of those who are in favour change theior mind in this case.
For whatever reason you might be in favour you must back it all the way and swallow any unpalatable cases that arise, it is part of the price you are
willing to pay. I don't see how anyone who is in favour of capital punishment can possibly call for clemency here without being totally
hypocritical. If you believe that the period of time he has been waiting has allowed him to change to the extent where execution is not required
punishment then surely the death penalty itself cannot be supported.
