A SECOND CHANCE for Tracen Franklin
However, while visiting home for the weekend, Tracen attended a party and was involved in a fight in which a young man lost his life.
Yes, he made a mistake, had a lapse in judgment and was involved in a life altering situation...but does that make him a killer?
Do you recall ever making a mistake? Do you remember thinking "I really messed up"? Well he did just that, he messed up, he never imagined that this could happen to him. However, should he pay for it with the rest of his life? Is it JUSTIFIABLE to Condemn him to Prison without ANY consideration for REFORM? Ask yourself, is there any REDEEMING QUALITY for a young man's FIRST OFFENSE, especially Tracen who had such a bright future ahead?
Tracen is the ONLY ONE who ADMITTED to his role in this TRAGEDY, APOLOGIZED for his actions, but yet he was the ONLY defendant out of four who faced the DEATH PENALTY. This is NOT JUSTICE.
Due in part to the overwhelming National Media Coverage the facts of the investigation were disheveled therefore, Tracen's role was magnified and he faced the Death Penalty and after enduring acomplex and lengthy trial Tracen received a sentence of LIFE without the possibility of Parole in 2012.
WAKE UP PEOPLE...PRISON can not be the answer for every body...there has to be room for REDEMPTION!
