I cant believe im even reading a story like this.What in the hell is the world coming to?How can anybody even consider letting a double murder convict out on parole?His ass should have been cooked in the electric chair within a year of his conviction.Two idiots on the parole board even gave him cosideration.Sounds like there are two members that need to lose their jobs now!I hope the rest of them have enough sense to tell the guy to go rot in hell.As for the wife ,he was givin mercy and grace with his worthless life being saved!!!!

WHAT THAT MAN DONE TO STRINGBEAN AND ESTELLE WAS WRONG AND IMO SHOULD HAVE TO SPEND THE REST OF HIS SORRY LIFE IN PRISON, DEATH WOULD BE TO EASY FOR HIM, I HOPE WHEN HE DIES HE DIES A HORRIBLE DEATH,JUST LIKE STRING BEAN AND ESTELLE
AND THEN WHEN HE DIES I HOPE HE BURN IN HELL FOREVER IMO

Okay, he told her what he had done, she still married him. I am not going to feel sorry for her nor him. God forgives but I still do not think this man should be let out on the street again. I attend church twice a week myself and know we are to forgive. I do forgive but he still does not need to be on the street.

I am not in the forgiveness business

he commited as crime, she knew that when she married him

screw her wanting us to see "the other side of him"

he should rot in jail and she can join him for all I can but he should NEVER be allowed out

I do not for one minute believe that this man should be paroled he took two lives and thinks that it is ok now and should be considered for parole well I hate to say but he should rot in prison. I don't feel sorry for his wife no more than I do for him. Yeah he says he has changed until he gets out as for Maury Davis he needs to mind his own business and stop condoning what this man done. I hope and pray that he does not get those votes and I believe that God will see to it that this man stays where he is and should be.

Stupid woman! He killed a man. He chased the man's wife down and as she begged for her life,he killed her. You wasted 34 years. He is lucky because he is alive. He victims are not.

WHY? A chance to do what? Kill some more innocent people? I would give him a chance to spend the rest of his worthless life in prison. Did he give the Akemans a chance? NO.

Sorry, but we need to understand that this man committed a hidious crime and he was ordered to pay for the rest of his life. Many times a person will straighten their lives out, but that does not mean it takes away the punishment for what he done. He killed two innocent people, who did not deserve to die and were begging for their lives, but he did not give them any consideration to their pleas. Now as he and his wife, Maury Davis and anyone else who pleas for mercy for him, those pleas must go unheard and he stay in prison. I knew a young man who was convicted for bank robbery and spent his entire life behind bars, he killed no one, but he had to serve out his sentence of life, until he passed away in prison.

God forgives and forgets if a man seeks his grace. Man, on the other hand, has a much harder time forgetting. Accepting grace does not absolve one of the earthly consequences of his crimes. He may end up in heaven or he may not. That is for the Supreme Justice to decide in his wisdom. But he still committed a crime that should prevent his freedom in this life. Jeffery Dahmer accepted the Lord's grace. I believe God has forgiven him. He still died in maximum security. Man's ways are not God's ways.

GOD GOD GOD WHERE is god when churches in session have people coming in and shooting randomly? God has nothing to do with it. The Tn. laws as you MUST know are made up as they go along. Laws that are in place are NOT enforced. This person should die in jail.

Well, Well,my thoughts about( JOHN BROWN ) GETTING OUT OF PRISON)!!!, He should NEVER be let OUT!!!!,The old saying is if you do the crime you do the time!!!!,For the 2 members that voted for him sould be put in there with him!!!!! There's GODS LAW-!!!, Also there's the law of the land!!! THEY SOULD NOT KILL!!!! As for the church pastor, i don't have anything GOOD to say about Him!!! He has also KILLED before!!!!! Brown had no choice except to be a model prisoner!!!! I don't think the taxpayer should foot the bill for his socalled (G.E.D.& DEGREES)!!!! What CHANCE did he give to the people that he killed??????.. It's my opinon only!!!! He does not deserve to be let OUT!!!! To do the same thing again!!!!

Debbie is right. There is another side to John Brown.Back in 1974 I got to see that other side. Someone who I cared about was incarcerated with John Brown. This person all of a sudden got very sick. Noone knew what was wrong with him. John Brown was very concerned with him and showed compassion. I spent several weekends in a visitation room with John and his wife. They are good people. God Bless John and Debbie.
You people may want to go back and read Denny's post. I agree with every thing he is saying.
