Hello. Thanks for allowing me to join. I hope I'm putting this in the right place!
Back in June of this year, John Balentine received a last minute Stay of Execution. Last I checked (late June 2011), the USSC was going to review the case in October 2011. I am just wondering if anyone here knows anything or could direct me to a site with information? I've done some searching but nothing really comes up after June 2011.
I am absolutely glad I found this forum! I won't mention the name of another forum (think Prison) that I stumbled across because almost every post that had to do with Balentine went against every fiber of my being. Balentine shot and KILLED my (then) 15 year old cousin, along with 2 other teens. I won't get into any more specifics. I'm sure the information is out there on his crime(s). I don't mean to sound cliché but I really need closure on this. It's so hard (for me) to see the Execution delayed while Balentine tries to fight his case. He didn't give the 3 teens a chance to fight for their lives (he shot them all in the back of the head while they were sleeping) and it pains me to see him fighting for his now.
Thanks for your time and I look forward to getting acquainted with this forum and its members. I haven't really opened up to many people regarding this topic. I have a "Hope for the Best but Expect the Worst" outlook. That being said, should the worst case scenario for me come true (sentence commuted), I'm hoping to start the healing process NOW by joining and venting.
