As for the upcoming execution for Donald Palmer;
He has done the right thing by not fighting this anymore. Yes he has taking responsibility for his crime and seems to be ready to " Pay the Piper". Sometimes you have to wonder if his readiness and lack of fighting this is for his own means.
I am a strong supporter of capital punishment and I feel for his victims family. On the flip side, the effects of Mr. Palmers upbringing and his decision to use drugs to numb the pain of his demons has got him were he is. I can only imagine what hes going through and the stress involved and I also can't imagine what his victims family have had to endure.

I hope that Mr Palmer has got right with God and I Also pray for his victims family.
