Should Sedley Alley Die?

Yes.

Actions have consequences.

Alley's actions included shoving a stick so far up a 19-year-old's vagina that it punctured her lung.

He confessed.

He later admitted to lying on purpose about details during his confession so that he could nullify the confession on appeal.

For more than nearly twenty years Mr. Alley has been a guest of the state.

He is now 51 years old.

Suzanne Collins died at 19.

Alley's life has now exceeded twice the amount of time Collins had on this earth. He's the one who decided that she be denied that time.

I appreciate that the Tennessee Coalition Against State Killing would like to see Sedley's sentence commuted. But as a Tennessean against the killing of my fellow-staters, I'd much rather see the harshest consequences possible for Sedley's crimes. In this case that means death.

For these reasons I've called and emailed the governor asking him to uphold Alley's death sentence.

What would Christ do? He forgave the thief hanging next to him. But that man still died of crucifixion--the consequences of his crime.

Micah 6:8 says that we are to do justly and to love mercy. Because of these I believe that justice is death. Mercy is a quick death, made as painless as possible. An eye for an eye would leave Alley stabbed, beaten and impaled through the scrotum. Mercy buys Alley a sterile needle.

SEDLEY ALLEY SHOULD BE TREATED LIKE ANY OTHER HUMAN UNTIL THE DNA EVIDENCE HAS CONCLUDED WHETHER IT WAS IN FACT HIM OR NOT. WHY EXECUTE A MAN WITHOUT TRULY KNOWING WHAT HAPPENED? GIVE THE MAN A FAIR CHANCE!!! LOOK AT THE MAN RECENTLY RELEASED FROM PRISON AFTER 19 YEARS BECAUSE DNA EVIDENCE CONCLUDED HE WAS NOT GUILTY. ALL THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE IS DNA TESTING SO THIS CAN BE CONCLUDED ONCE AND FOR ALL.

I am a 27 year old man that knows what being wrongly accussed is all about. I was charged with two different rapes and was found innocent by two different juries. The wheels of justice are not always swift but I believe they do move justly. Give the man his chance. If DNA proves him innocent great. If it does not, then we move forward and execute him as promptly as possible.

Sedley Alley's guilt is not in question. This man is GUILTY as anything. The evidence is so overwhelming it's disgusting. I'm sure every death penalty opponent out there felt pretty stupid when they claimed for yearssss Roger Coleman was wrongfully executed in the state of Virginia. For years, DP Opponents said "TEST ROGER COLEMAN'S DNA"... they did, and look what happened. DNA proved his guilt. Coleman tried abusing the system and delaying his execution, possibly giving himself a longer life, which never happened. This is almost like what Sedley Alley is trying to do

This man is so scared to be executed by the state of Tennessee it's hilarious. Look how many appeals he's filed. Every one of them, DENIED! He has used every excuse and possible appeal he has had, to no avail..

Sedley Alley -- I hope you die a horrible painful, slooowwwwwwww deathon June 28th,2006! Good luck fighting your execution, BITCH!

Sedley Alley was not wrongfully convicted. I met and dined with him along with others prior to this happening. I knew his wife, she really went down hill after this event. I tried to reach out to her, because I couldn't help but wonder how she was managing going through all of this. But she surprised me, this event didn't seem to phase her in the way I expected. She started doing lots of drugs. Sedley Alley also used the screwdriver that he had in his stationwagon because he would use it on his battery to start his car. He jammed that up the female marine right along with the stick. This event happened not far from my house at Orville Park in Millington TN. The female Marine was only supposed to be at NAS Memphis for 6 weeks of training. It was terrible that this had to happen. To me justice was not served because Sedley Alley should have been put to death a long time ago. It is terrible that he got to live until 2006.

I can't believe that horrible sedley alley is live yet. I'm ecuatorian and all world speak about the EE.UU and your Justice like a model. But now I undestand this is not truth. The justice machine in EE.UU don't work, but I think Suzanne is with God far away of this misery people who's don't respect the rigths of the victims.
