They believe that while the person may have committed a heinous crime, they will be judged upon their natural death and should be offered an opportunity to repent their crimes and change their life for the better.
There will always be a lot of debate on cases like this because the issue is not black and white.
Still others say that the fact that innocent people have been wrongfully accused and sentenced to death should be enough of a reason to do away with the whole system entirely because that is one mistake that we can never make.
