Does a man who believes he is the “Prince of GOD,” who should have never been let out of a mental institution in the 70’s after a psychiatrist found him to be “grossly psychotic”, be put to death in Florida after committing a series a heinous murders nearly 30 years ago?

That is exactly what will happen to John Errol Ferguson if the State of Florida gets its way.  Remember, the question isn’t if John Ferguson should be let back onto the streets (so stop watching too much tv).  The question is, what justice, retribution or deterrence will be served by killing him? On our show yesterday, we had an exclusive interview with on of Mr. Ferguson’s attorneys, Ben Lewis.  For more background on the case, you can check out this piece by one of LTAI’s favorite Miami journalists, Tim Elfrink, or an op-ed in the Miami Herald by Fred Grimm.  Check out our interview with Ben Lewis below and tell us what you think.
