I contacted Missouri’s Governor Nixon asking him to stop the execution of Cecil Clayton.

I mourn for the family and friends of police officer Christopher Castetter.

Clayton was convicted of the murder of Christopher Castetter. There appears no question of his guilt for. No excuse. None. It was an appalling crime.

But, in executing Clayton, the state, we demean human life and degrade ourselves. We become murderers. I become a murderer. And I refuse to do that, as far as possible, silently.

The execution may proceed but it will not do so without my protest. However small my voice, however ignored my voice, I will raise my voice!

It is past time to abolish the death penalty.

See you along the Trail.
