Clemancy Commandment: Ronald Allen Smith

The Sixth Commandment says, "Thou Shalt Not Kill"; it does not say "Thou Shalt Not Kill Nice People." It does not narrowly stipulate that only killing innocent people is wrong, no, it puts forth that no man shall be considered just if he kills anyone; anyone, whether that person is good or bad, just or unjust. By the most influential moral code in the history of mankind, the ten commandments, it is wrong to kill anyone, whether they be sainted or they be damned, whether they be a Samaritan or they be a murderer.

Ronald Allen Smith is a murderer, but he should not be killed. Our government should ask for clemency, as previous governments have done.
