Kimberlyn Scott started this petition to Sacramento, California Board of Parole Hearings

The Mother of a 14 year old victim needs our help to keep his murderer in prison.

There is a parole hearing on April 23rd, 2019 to determine whether or not the gang affiliated executioner of a CHILD should be released this month. This is taking place in California, so while it is not our Aina, the keiki of ALL are sacred and their killing should be FULLY paid for and ALL communities should be kept safe from this monster-

Please, take a few moments to sign this petition for the sake of us all-

Below is the template letter that will be delivered to the Parole Board of Sacramento-

Dear Chairman and Parole Board Member~

Please DO NOT grant a parole date to convicted murderer, Jason Angelo Merritt. On May 16, 1995, Merritt, with a co-defendant, placed Carl Dan Claes (“CD”), age 14, in a van and drove him to a remote area where he was marched down a dirt trail and shot in the back of the head execution-style. Merritt and his co-defendant then left the scene, returned and put two more bullets in Carl Dan’s head while he laid unconscious bleeding to death. They took his wallet, his pager and a cross his Mother had given to him and then left to eat fast food all the while using “CD’s” pager to brag to friends that he committed a murder. Merritt was convicted of first-degree murder with special circumstance and being vicariously armed with a gun. The conclusion of a Fitness Hearing in juvenile court (WI 707), was that Merritt was fit to stand trial as an adult. The motive for murdering “CD” was financial gain (a $2,500 sound system his grandfather and mother had purchased for him).

As a matter of record, Jason Angelo Merritt’s criminal history is remarkably extensive given his age (17 years old at the time he murdered “CD”). The trial judge, during sentencing, made reference to Merritt’s criminal history, that he had been stealing and extorting items from people in order to maintain his lifestyle of methamphetamine usage.

Since notification of the parole board hearing scheduled for April 23, 2019 at Ironwood State Prison, Carl Dan’s mother has had to relive the horrendous nightmare of her only son’s execution-style murder; a young boy with life and a bright future ahead of him. Carl Dan’s family has never been the same since his murder.

Because of Merritt’s complete disregard for human life, lack of conscience/remorse and past criminal history, there is a high probability he will reoffend and pose a significant risk to society/public safety. Jason Angelo Merritt made a personal choice to execute an innocent boy and must continue to accept the consequences of his actions. Justice demands that this convicted murderer be denied parole.

Please deny parole to Jason Angelo Merritt, convicted 1st Degree murderer with Special Circumstance and being vicariously armed and ensure he stays behind bars for the maximum time allowed by State of California law.

Thank you for your consideration~
