This Colorado Governor is actually threatening to grant full clemency to a mass shooter so that he can avoid the death penalty if he is not re-elected. Check this out…
If Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper (D) is not re-elected in November, he says he “could” respond to the loss by commuting the death sentence of mass shooter Nathan Dunlap.
Dunlap was sentenced to death but when the date for his execution came up in 2013, Hickenlooper granted a “temporary reprieve.” The National Journal reported that he chose this action as a way to pass the buck on taking a firm stand on the death penalty. Families of the victims gunned down by Dunlap were heartbroken and outraged.
The Journal also pointed out that Hickenlooper has since indicated he could further his action — changing it to full clemency — should Coloradans elect Republican Bob Beauprez instead of him in November.
In August, Complete Colorado published audio of Hickenlooper telling a CNN interviewer that if his gubernatorial opponent ran and won on a platform of enforcing the death penalty there are still things “a governor can [do]” with the time that remains. Things he can do in the “period of time between the election…and the end of the year.”
When pressed to explain this statement, Hickenlooper said that if his Republican opponent wins in November, “there obviously remedies that the governor can do, you know, I could give it full clemency between election day and the end of the year.”
