Ron Smith Hearing for Clemency Set

CALGARY - A clemency hearing has been set for two days in early May for the only Canadian on death row in the United States.
Ronald Smith, 54, originally from Red Deer, Alta., has been on death row for the murders of Thomas Running Rabbit and Harvey Mad Man Jr. 30 years ago near East Glacier, Mont.


  1. I would prefer he not be granted clemency, he showed no mercy to these young boys

  2. Its a common argument in this case and others like it. We might ask ourselves if killing a human being is really the way to demonstrate that killing is wrong.
    We also need to ask ourselves what circumstances, what social circumstances create people like Ron Smith in the first place...create violent people - and what can we do to change?
