Colorado's governor, intensely criticized over death-row reprieve, says he'd do it again.
Part of Hickenlooper's problem has been the ambitous liberal agenda, from gays to guns, he signed into law in 2013 after a Democratic legislative spree. Part has been his habit of thinking out loud and his seeming eagerness to please all sides of an issue; a meeting this summer with hostile sheriffs turned into a political disaster when the governor equivocated about the gun-control laws he backed, upsetting both sides.
But Hickenlooper will also have someone else to blame: Nathan Dunlap.
In 1993, as a 19-year-old, Dunlap killed four people -- three of them also teenagers -- at a Chuck E. Cheese pizza restaurant in Aurora, where he once worked. A fifth shooting victim survived.
In 2013, as Dunlap's execution date neared, Hickenlooper granted "an indefinite reprieve," lasting as long as he remains in office.
The move outraged the families of some victims and launched a thousand soft-on-crime TV ads this election season.

Please Colorado, do the right thing Tuesday.
Heck, that’s just the looper’s statement for today.
Wait until tomorrow for a different statement.
He’s that loopy.
Of course not. It wasn’t his family member(s).
Bs, as the ad says 'a lying coward'.
DemocRats get all queasy when it comes to executing a sadistic murderer but have no problem with the killing of innocent unborn babies.
I was going to say, I saw an ad today where the father of one of Dunlap’s victims called Chickenpooper a coward.
Just can’t figure libtards out...killing a baby is a right, but giving a dirt nap to a murderer suddenly gets their panties in a knot. I guess it’s why I have no libtard friends anymore.
victory in Colorado is a big deal this year. For everyone, but especially the people who live there, who are at a crossroads. This is their “Time for Choosing”.
