State-administered death is always a greater horror than any other by virtue of the methodical reasoning that precedes it. French philosopher Albert Camus wrote that "capital punishment is the most premeditated of murders". "The United States' concept of justifiable homicide/Executions in criminal law stands on the dividing line between an excuse, justification and an exculpation. In other words, it takes a case that would otherwise have been a murder or another crime representing intentional killing, and either excuses or justifies the individual accused from all criminal liability or treats the accused differently from other intentional killers.

I am one of the attorneys that helped to get Carlton a stay this past Thursday.  He has a couple of messages that he would like to pass on to "Petry" (sp?), but I'm not sure of the appropriate address.  If you could email at this address, I will pass on the messages.
thank you

PS: I have a family member, the 1th cousin of Mrs. Tonya Turner, close here with me. She said, she "now" has a mission to save Carlton's life and contacted the brother of Mrs Turner too. She asked me if I know the attorney of Carlton, so she can contacting him..... I would like to give Ms. Kristell Coleman your address, should I ?

Hi – apologies for delay in replying.

You know, we didn’t get the stay until 10:30 at night!

Yes, it is fine to give Ms. Coleman my address.

Now that I know this is your proper address, I wanted to also pass on two other requests from Carlton: 

1 - He threw away all his papers on the 27th, so would like to get from you any addresses you have.

2 - He also asked that you contact his friend in Norway, Kjersti, to also let her know that he is ok.

From the legal perspective:  Carlton received a stay on what appeared to be the lethal injection issue (on which the US Supreme Court granted certiorari, on a case out of Kentucky, two days earlier).  However, it could also be on a related procedural issue.  Regardless, we now have 90 days to file a cert petition, and it will be a good while after that before anything moves in the case.

All to say, we have some time.

Best regards,

Maurie Levin

July 2010

Dear Carlton
Hey! Everything ok, smile.... Between your Birthday in July  and the day you were gone two years later, I sent your second book to the publisher .....To Hell - Farewell! The edition I did alone, so it is obviously not the same purpose you and Noah had in mind or?!...but it was a little second "farewell" for me creating the book and stepping deeper again in your words....I sent the book to Irving and talked to Noah, both want it more perfect, needing time, but you know the perfectionist were you, never me... 


* I'll follow your words and do a second edition then, if they want and come back to me ... but by now I enjoy a brillant book you have written ...

P.S. I didn't know Sheldon Ward was ill, he died in May 2010 and believe it, I sent a copie of the book to him because of his contribution ... Noah then told me about and only Irving and Noah are remaining ...The copie to Sheldon returned. 

Even in Japan I saw they offer your book ... Hey what do you say, I know you would like to correct my edition and typos ... but your poetry and short story is brillant written and takes everyone with, who likes to be involved ...  

To Hell - Farewell! [Perfect]

Carlton A. Turner (著), (編集)
