Cathleen Burnett - Petitions for Life: Executive Clemency in Missouri Death Penalty Cases (5958 words)
These appeals to the governor are pleas that attempt to tell the petitioner's story in clear and understandable language, to persuade the governor to look into the merits of the claims in the hopes of preventing miscarriages of justice.
A random sample of Missouri residents reported that 80% of the respondents said their opinion about the death penalty was affected by the fact that some people executed are later found to be innocent.[44] The problem of questionable guilt has been a common basis for commutations in other states.
A governor is extraordinarily reluctant to overturn a jury’s decision.[60] Overturning the jury's decision in the face of no new information would appear to usurp the citizenry of their contribution to the administration of justice.
