(RepublicanInformer.com)- In an unsuccessful attempt to free a guy who had been found guilty of killing a 17-year-old teen, Demonic John Fetterman was the lone vote.
After being found guilty of killing teenager Sean Daily in 1989, Alexis Rodriquez is currently incarcerated for life.
A gang of ten incorrectly believed that Sean Daily was involved in an earlier altercation, so they beat him with a baseball bat and shot him in the back.
Fetterman desired the return of the murderers to society.
Sean Daily, a high school junior and the son of a Philadelphia police officer, was killed in 1989. Alexis Rodriguez, one of five suspects found guilty of first-degree murder in the case, is currently serving a life sentence in Dallas.
Since the victim was White and the suspects were mostly Hispanic, the murder led to racial turmoil in Philadelphia.
On December 1, 2021, Rodriguez appeared before the Pennsylvania Board of Pardons, which Fetterman chairs. Fetterman was the lone vote in favor of commuted sentence for the convicted killer.
Fetterman’s campaign has consistently defended his approach to clemency cases.
They claim that Democrats and Republicans have commended John’s performance on the Board of Pardons.
“John voted to reject hundreds of pardon and commutation requests while nearly always backing law enforcement authorities. He did this while saving the taxpayer money and applying fairness to every case he thought about. Both the prosecutors and the prison officers in this instance at the time agreed that the sentence should be commuted.”
The Fetterman campaign claimed that Rodriguez had improved while incarcerated and that his release at the time had the support of the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office and the state’s Department of Corrections.
John David Brookins is currently serving a life sentence after being found guilty of killing a woman with a pair of scissors, and Fetterman was, again, the lone vote in a failed attempt to get his sentence reduced in March of last year.
