I ask you, Governor Perry, to help stop your state's execution of Carlton Turner, Jr. Mr. Turner is scheduled to die next Thursday, 07/10/2008, for the 1998 murders of Carlton Turner Sr., and Tonya Turner, his adopted parents.

Mr. Turner’s history is a prime example of the truism that ‘violence begets violence’. His short life has been filled with violence, starting with horrific abuse at the hands of his parents. Compounding the psychoses brought on by such violence, the last time your state tried to execute him you prolonged his time of terror by four hours after his scheduled execution before a stay was issued. Governor Perry, on humanitarian grounds Texas may not execute Carlton Turner!

Former Attorney General of the United States Janet Reno, as well as myriads of scholars, can find no evidence that the death penalty deters capital crimes. In fact, the warden of the famous Sing Sing prison believes that the death penalty exacerbates the violence in his facility by setting an example of cold-blooded killing. Recent studies show that the largest increase in capital crimes is in Texas, the state which executes the most people. As for vengeance, that is the Lord's, not the government's.

Please, Governor Perry, help stop this killing of Carlton Turner, Jr. If this execution goes forward, look around this country for the black armbands worn, and the church bells tolled, in protest of this injustice.

Thank you.
