“Troy King” took the Shelby County DA off of a case because the DA argued against the death penalty. Two men were convicted of the crime. The actual shooter was 16 at the time of the crime, so when the Supreme Court ruled that executing juveniles was unconstitutional, he was removed from Death Row.
The DA, who since he’s from Shelby County is a Republican, mind you, felt that it was absurd to execute someone who didn’t kill anyone while letting the actual killer live, and argued to a judge to commute the sentence to life. The judge agreed. “Troy” finds the DA’s statements to be “incredible and outrageous”. Also, this has nothing to do with the DA supporting “Troy”‘s opponent in the 2006 election. I agree. “Troy” is just that bloodthirsty.
