Yesterday was a historic day for death penalty repeal efforts in Colorado. Hickenlooper granted a reprieve for Nathan Dunlap, who was scheduled to be executed in August. Please show your support for the governor's actions by voting in this online poll!

In doing so the Governor expressed grave concerns about the flaws and failures of the death penalty in Colorado.
We need to turn the poll in favor of clemency or retrieve. Right now there is an overwhelming majority for
letting the execution proceed. Please vote!

Please also take a moment to thank Governor Hickenlooper and let him know that he did the right thing. Supporters can email the Governor through his online portal at:
http://www.colorado.gov/govhdir/requests/opinion.html.
Under "Jurisdictions," pick "Corrections," and then, under "Topic," pick death penalty.

You can tell from his very emotional press conference (video) that the only reason he did not grant clemency right away was out of "respect for the people in Colorado". The decision sure was a heavy weight on him.
Let's try all together to raise our voices louder than Coloradons! perhaps clemency can be reached.

natasha, thx, and sadly yes, that's why I re- posted this in an effort to override those votes. Too bad Hickenlooper will only allow US citizens to comment on his personal site - I've tried in vain.

I voted on each, and I seem to be in the minority, nothing new about that. Why would any thinking human being vote for Tom Tancredo for any thing?

Are Coloradons "thinking people"? just asking... hope he fails big time!

He should have granted clemency! It's time that this barbaric practice is banned across the entire country.

Thanks Angelika.

According to the poll when I just took it, this is what it reflected.

He should have let the execution proceed 7082 Votes, or 68.69 %

Wow, still a lot of people that want to fry others. Even when there is a doubt as to this Justice system and how it works. Very sad.

Indeed Dandelion. I dare say those who support state approved murder are no better than that London "butcher" screaming "an eye for an eye.."..

i am in such a minority...

He made the right decision
1883 Votes, or 18.16 %

He should have granted clemency
1390 Votes, or 13.41 %

He should have let the execution proceed
7091 Votes, or 68.41 %

Peoples own anger projected on to someone who could very well be innocent.

Sioux, in THIS case Mr Dunlap is NOT innocent which is probably the reason for this public attitude. But the issue and main thing here is more the GENERAL question of death penalty all together and its flawed system.
That includes the current issue about the drugs needed for the lethal injection. You need to get background info!

but I wish more people in the US would also use the option to leave a thank you or any comment on the Govn's website which I linked in my first comment above.

Life is a God given gift to every being & only God has the right to take it! I voted, Thanks Angie.

Agree with Henriette M. - Only God has the right to take away life - God gave us life and is our creator and man should not take away!

Noted. Thanks, Angelika. Well, it's at 67.88% after I voted for clemency. Other interesting polls reflected my opinion as most vote-getting, though.

Angelika, some Coloradans think. Some do not. This is probably true anywhere. I would agree that no thinking person would vote for Tancredo (Tom or his mother) for anything except possibly death penalty injectable drug tester (subject). Yet it is undeniable that many have.
