Napolean Beazley

David Elliot has posted the final statement of Napolean Beazley on the NCADP blog. The State of Texas executed Beazley on May 28, 2002. Had the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in Simmons come before May 28, 2002, Beazley would be alive. Napolean Beazley was a wild teenager when he killed John Luttig. A prime example of the changes that come between adolescence and adulthood, Napolean matured into an upright young man. The murder of his victim was tragic and unjustifiable, something Napolean Beazley admitted. That, however, makes the murder of Napolean Beazley no less shameful...

Please, take a moment to read Napolean's statement. I think you'll find it worth your time.
