Martina Cattles: Thank you for all the support. Our family presented all your signatures to the Parole board, with this online petition and one with handwritten signatures, we had over 500 signatures. Our family now has a few months of relief, before we need to gear up again.

In 1982, my grandfather was murdered by Kenneth Green. My grandfather was 63 years old. He was shot in the face at close range and robbed of $20, a shotgun, 2 credit cards and a hunting stand (seat). My grandfather was missing for several days before his body was found by his son and son-in-law. Kenneth Green was sentenced to LIFE in prison; however, in 1983 (when sentenced) that meant he was eligible for parole. He has been eligible for parole every year since the mid-1990's. Please help my family keep this convicted armed robber and murdered where he belongs... IN PRISON

To:
South Carolina Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon
The general law abiding public must be kept safe from convicted premediated murderers and armed robbers. We insist that you vote to Keep Kenneth Green (Inmate # 00116020) in prison. He was given a life sentence and the only way to honor the memory of his victim Martin L. Cattles is to keep Kenneth Green in prison.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I feel so sorry for this family to have to do this every year.

      Kenneth Green was convicted of murder and should sty in jail for life. There is no circumstance that justifies pardon.

      A person who viciously takes the life of another absolutely does not deserve to be paroled. He needs to stay in prison for LIFE.

      My brother was killed when I was 9 and his killers(whom we know)were never brought to justice! This man showed no regard for human life when he took this man's life. why should he be permitted to be released to go on living his life when a family has been living a life of sorrow?

      The question shouldn't be IF parole should be granted, it should be WHY should parole be granted? A man was murdered. The murderer was tried and convicted. Now he must serve his time - all of it. His choices cost a man his life, and the victim's friends and family have greatly suffered. What a ridiculous concept to allow the possibility for parole for convicted murderers. Inmate William Kenneth Green #00116020 needs to be held accountable for his actions. NO PAROLE - not now, not ever.
