Young Reporter

Dear Vernon,

I recall covering the story surrounding the Warren House murders all those years ago. At the time, I was a very young reporter-- the grisly gangland-style executions of David Scott Piechowicz and Susan Kennedy still live on in my memory. It was a horrible crime, and if you are indeed guilty of murdering them to keep them from testifying against convicted criminal Anthony Grandison, who reportedly ordered the killings from prison, you deserve punishment for the rest of your life. But you should not be murdered. I believe the death penalty is completely immoral: I fervently hope the state will not kill you and that your attorneys will be successful in stopping the execution from taking place. I also hope you receive another trial; the questions about the eyewitness seem valid on their face. In the interest of justice and truth, it makes sense to reexamine the fairness of how your trials were handled.

In any case, I oppose capital punishment for any reason. As such, I wish you a long life. Doesn't mean that I have a soft spot for murderers, though. If you are indeed guilty of those hideous crimes, I pray you spend that long life behind bars. But if you truly are innocent, I pray that justice ultimately will prevail.

NR Davis,

I understand just what you are saying and I tell you as a man that I was not the shooter that day.
