Statement made at Florida clemency hearing for James Dupree Henry (on death row) by the victim's son, William Riley- "If my father taught me anything about life, it is that God gives life and only He has the right to take it away The God that I came to know, through my father, was one of love and mercy... not one of vengeance. We suffered as a family when he died. But we have found it in ourselves to feel compassion for this young man and we ask you to do the same. Killing him, to us, simply would not be right."
