Target: President Barack Obama
Goal: Say no to death penalty.
President Barack Obama is reportedly delaying and struggling with the decision regarding capital punishment. Reports say he has expressed deep concern about the implementation of the death penalty, but admitted that the issue has not been a top priority because he has “other things to do” and that he refuses to discuss the issue further.
People are dying at the hands of our justice system. Innocent people are frequently put to death and often times the process goes wrong and the inmate experiences intense pain and suffering. It’s appalling that this wouldn’t be a top priority in our president’s eyes.
This issue cannot continue to be ignored and delayed. Even Hillary Clinton has said that the death penalty is frequently applied in a discriminatory way. Urge President Obama to oppose the death penalty immediately.
Dear President Obama,
It has come to our attention that you’ll be making the daunting decision regarding the implementation of the death penalty. We realize this is a difficult issue, but people are dying at the hands of our justice system. Killing people is inhumane. Innocent people are often put to death and there have been instances where inmates suffered due to complications and clumsiness. There’s evidence that the death penalty is often used in a discriminatory way, according to Hillary Clinton.
Knowing all of this, continuing this barbaric practice would be an atrocity. We urge you to take immediate action and oppose capital punishment.
[Your Name Here]
