CO Gov stays execution for racial hate crime spree killer to appease NAACP leaders


Left-wing Colorado governor  John Hickenlooper has suspended the death sentence for the notorious Chuck E. Cheese spree killer.  Hickenlooper is pandering to the NAACP, claiming the death penalty unfairly effects black people.

In 1993, Nathan Dunlap hid in the bathroom of a Chuck E. Cheese. After they closed, he shot five white employees execution style in the head. Four of them died. Three of them were only teenagers. After being arrested he gloated about the killings.

Dunlap was a former employee who had been fired. He wanted to take revenge by killing a bunch of white people. He was motivated purely by hatred.

The cowardly, grovelling governor did not even consult with a single family member of any of the victims.

The ACLU, NAACP, Latino Forum, and the mostly black Colorado Council of Churches, had been campaigning to have his execution stayed.

Hickenlooper said one reason he chose a reprieve and not full clemency was so that Dunlap would have to remain segregated from the rest of the prison population.

Before reaching his decision, the governor also heard impassioned pleas to spare Dunlap’s life from an assortment of groups, from the NAACP and the Latino Forum to the Colorado Council of Churches. Even former Archbishop Desmond Tutu called the governor on Dunlap’s behalf.

The Latino Forum and the NAACP argued that the death penalty is disproportionately imposed on African-Americans or Hispanics.
