What does a man have to do, to prove that he is sincere, remorseful, and would like a second chance at life? I am coming up on my second parole hearing in 2013. I have done 15 years and have seen my first parole board. At my hearing I was told that they were "impressed" how my recidivism rate was considerably low, how they thought "highly of the fact" that I haven't been involved in any activities that led me to the penitentary. While being in the penal institution I have shown the willingness to change my life. I was commended on the fact that I have documents and certificates that show and prove I have partaken in numerous mental health sessions, groups, and programs. I have also furthered my education while being incarcerated. I was told: "if you don't get paroled, it will be because you haven't done enough time." I didn't get passed 5 years because I haven't taken responsibility for my crimes or for public oppositions or because I didn't do anything to their satisfactory, nor because they felt I was a threat to society. I was passed because they wanted me to do some more time. The 15 years I have done and the 32 months I haven't started yet, isn't long enough. "This is the time the judge sentenced me, the 15 years and 32 months." It is going on 20 years since I was a 17 year old teenager who's life was in termoil, beraved, and utterly devastated over the death and murder of my brother/best friend. While in the mist of my storm, 17 days after my brother was killed, I myself took innocent man's life. This innocent man's life came to a tragic end because I was consumed with anger, hatred, and guilt which caused me to erupt and inflict termoil and devastation on his family. There are times in life where we all wish we could go back and relive or redo things. Many times over, I sit back and wish I could go back and be that 17 year old teenager that was a month shy of his 18th birthday and redo a lot of choices that I had made. I often wish I could have wispered something in his ear that could have not only changed his life but more importantly spared the life of an innocent man. I am seeking a clemency from the govenor of Kansas, Sam Brownback, to grant me a pardon or parole me over to my consecutive sentence of 32 months. If you are in support for my pardon, I would truly appreciate it if you would sign my petition. Thank you for taking the time to read my petition. Please take my pardon into deep consideration. Sincerely, Abraham Orr
