Because the death penalty violates the dignity of the person and their right to life.

Shame on the United States of America for murdering its own citizens. This man is too mentally ill to be accountable for his actions, and even if he was, the death penalty is barbaric and disgusting.

The death penalty should be reserved for those very few cases of pure, deliberate and massive evil beyond any doubt that unfortunately occur in human history. Edwin Hart Turner does not fit this description. He should receive medical attention, a proper re-trial and a sentence that does justice to his troubled circumstances.

The death penalty demeans us all. It makes us all responsible. I say - not in my name. Not in my name shall individuals be killed.

The death penalty is always wrong, but even proponents must admit that this is not one of the "worst of the worst". How can you say the system works if this guy gets the ultimate punishment?

Please reconsider the scheduled execution of Edwin Turner and provide clemency for him. Numerous cases have revealed that the death penalty is levied unfairly and even to the innocent.

We have no right to end the life of another, innocent or guilty. Life imprisonment with no option of parole should be the penalty for those convicted felons on death row. The death penalty should never be imposed; only God may determine when life ends. .

Executing a person with mental illness, is like euthanizing a person for a broken leg. Mental illness is just that. A very broken human being who was not responsible for his crimes due to severe disability.

There is no consistency with the death penalty, some people are given it, while others who commit far more horrific crimes are given more lenient sentences. The death penalty needs to be abolished

The U.S. Supreme Court should have followed its own precedents and relieved Edwin of the death penalty because he is mentally ill. How could they not have done this?
