STOP THE EXECUTION OF NICHOLAS TODD SUTTON
The state of Tennessee plans to execute Nicholas Todd Sutton Thursday, February 20, 2020 for the 1985 murder of fellow-inmate Carl Estep. Mr. Sutton was also responsible for the deaths of three others people prior to his time in prison: his grandmother - Dorothy Sutton, John Large, and Charles Almon.
The Catholic Church teaches that the death penalty is unacceptable in all cases because it is "an attack on the inviolability and dignity of the person." (Catholic Catechism 2267)
