The following are a few bullet points for your communication with him:
- Gov. Hutchinson, do not kill these 8 men in my name. We have the means to protect society with life without parole. Killing to teach people that killing is not the right message for our society.
- Gov. Hutchinson, as an Arkansas taxpayer, do not spend our state tax dollars executing these 8 men. This will not bring about economic prosperity for Arkansas.
- Gov. Hutchinson, do not act in haste to execute a man who has not been proven to be the triggerman. Do you really want to execute somebody who perhaps did not commit the crime?
- Arkansas has not had an execution since 2005. We will not be any safer with these men’s death. We will have just created more victim’s family members.
- Governor Hutchinson, your actions represent an attack on the value and dignity of human life.
