Hunter's attorney Ed Mills, who had argued his client should not received the death penalty because he suffers from schizophrenia. Jeff Dowdy, Victorino's attorney, had asked Parsons to spare his client because he has mental problems and was abused as a child.
Boo hoo. Ya know, I had to clean my room when I was a kid. What kind of free pass does that get me?
