Reduce the capital charges of Bryan Dammon Smith

Bryan Dammon Smith is a native Detroiter, a disabled and distinguished Detroit Marine veteran, a husband and a father of four. He has been diagnosed with severe Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, stemming from a 1993 training accident during his Marine service that broke his back and severely damaged his knees and legs. At present, he is facing trial in October of this year in San Diego, California, charged with committing murder in the course of a robbery in 1994. If he is found guilty, he could face the death penalty. In 2005, Bryan was extradited to California by Governor Granholm. Since Michigan has long been a state which opposes the death penalty, a conviction in Michigan would result in a life sentence. The death penalty was not mentioned in the California extradition application to Governor Granholm at that time, but the California authorities now have the option to apply the death penalty if there is a conviction on the current charges. At this moment, we are simply asking that Bryan not be tried under a charge that could result in the death penalty, but rather under one that will result in life without the benefit of parole if he is found guilty. We are asking San Diego District Attorney, Bonnie Dumanis, to set aside the petition for the death penalty, in light of not only Bryan

Your son is a cold blooded serial killer who has no regard for humanity. This was not a "robbery gone wrong" incident, this was a pre-meditated, cold blooded murder lady!!!! You idiots should be embarrassed and ashamed of Bryan Dammon Smith and of yourselves for torting your ridiculous pleas for his mercy!!! And how dare you cite Bryan Dammon Smith's mistreatment because of his "race" or his "color". How fucking dare you people!!! As far as anyone is concerned, Bryan Dammon Smith has a hatred for people of Middle Eastern heritage. He should also be charged with a class E Felony Hate Crime with aggressive minimum sentencing terms no less than the death penalty!!!! You are irresponsible and an absolute disgrace to society for defending your cold blooded, cold hearted killer of a son!!! Begging for his merciful sentencing, when this stupid monster cared not when Tom El-Farrah offered Bryan Dammon Smith all of the money in the cash register surrendering it without a fight whatsoever, only with the pleas for his life!!!! And Bryan Dammon Smith gave 2 shits about this beloved family man's life or family!!! DID he??? So how dare you petition people or perpetuate your lies about this "miscarriage of justice" when you know damn well that Bryan Dammon Smith has been an evil, heartless abuser, and torturer of animals and small children since elementary school!!!! Yeah talk to his former teachers lady!! You are freaking delusional with your warm, touching accounts of him being such a "good boy". Bullshit!! He should have been in a mental hospital a long ass time ago!! How come you never addressed his behavior and treatment and abuse since the tender age of 5???? I hope you signers of this petition get your just desserts!!! What goes around comes back around, just remember that!! Oh and if you are all such Christians, then read your Bible!! "Ye know that no murderer will stand with me at the gates of heaven when he shall pass. No murderer shall rejoice in the kingdom of heaven, he shall burn and toil forever with the snakes of Satan, and suffer forevermore in Hell."
