Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Two notable prison opinion pieces via the Washington Post:


"Life without parole? No child deserves that" Wash Post
Do adults?
How about no DP, no LWOP, no registry?

AP: TULSA, OKLA | "A Kay County jury convicted Davis in 2003 of 1st-degree murder and 1st-degree rape in the death
of his girlfriend's mother, Josephine Sanford, 52.
. . Josephine Sanford had 6 stab wounds, a broken jaw and marks around her neck. DNA evidence showed Davis had
sex with the victim."|

| "I was rude at the end," Davis said [to the panel]. "We were mad at each other after my comment. And one thing
led to another. It just happened so quick."
. . Brian Darrell Davis, 39, received a lethal injection Tuesday at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary in McAlester,
despite a recommendation by Oklahoma's pardon and parole board to commute his death sentence after he
took responsibility for the victim's death and apologized
. The board voted 4-1 in favor of clemency." |

Took responsibility ? Apologized ?
How did these 4 qualify for the Pardon & Parole Board?
Does one of them write for WaPo?
