Don't Destroy One Life to Make Up for the Destruction of Another

RECEIVED Fri., May 21, 2010

Dear Editor,
    Thanks to Michael King for his piece in your May 21 edition on David Powell's upcoming execution [“Point Austin: Let David Live,” News]. He did a well-informed and well-reasoned job of laying out the case that we can't destroy one precious human life (David Powell's) to make up for the destruction of another precious human life (Officer Ralph Ablanedo's).
