Missouri has set an execution date of July 14 for David Zink. Mr. Zink was convicted for the abduction and murder of Amanda Morton whose car he had rear-ended near Stafford, Missouri in 2001. Zink defended himself at trial despite serious issues of mental health and competency.
Catholic teaching opposes the use of the death penalty because it disregards the sanctity and dignity of human life and continues the cycle of violence. Please contact Gov. Jay Nixon at 573-751-3222 or through email and urge him to show mercy to Mr. Zink. Let Gov. Nixon know that society can be protected from Mr. Zink by having him spend the rest of his life in prison.
