It is clear why Don Gilson recived the death penalty. He is a child killer and abuser. He murdered 8 year old Shane Coffman. Some people are trying to argue the fact that Don Gilson was in a car wreck in 1993 and suffered brain damage and this in some way led to the abuse and eventually murder. This does not explain why while he was married to a woman named Ruby from 1983 to 1991, she and her children were also abused by Don Gilson. He broke his Ruby's nose on one occasion and would punch her daughter lynetta in the face with his closed fist. He would also beat her son Delbert with a board and he stated in court documents "it did not matter where he hit him." So his pattern of abuse was established long before the car accident. Don Gilson has no family history of abuse.
Ms.Coffman, the childrens mother did not receive the death penalty. Many believe she does deserve it though. The judge spared her life only to lessen the suffering of her children who had already been through so much. He stated killing her was to good for her, that she should go to bed every night and wake up every morning thinking about what she had done for the rest of her life. He said he should stay caged like the animal she is. Since she is biologically connected she has more guilty feelings over her children than Don Gilson. Don Gilson only showed remorse when he knew he was caught. He stated in numerous interviews with the FBI and law enforcement agencies that Shane just gave up on life. He said even animals have that instinct to stay alive, but he just quit. Well, little Shane did not just quit, he had the life beaten out of his little body. Don Gilson was the main perpetrator of the abuse of the Coffman children and the murder of Shane. He is the true definition of a monster.

Please sign this petition if you believe the courts should uphold the death sentence of Don Gilson, and that life in prison is not justice enough for the brutal murder of Shane Coffman and the disturbing abuse of Tranny, Jeremy, Isaac, Tia and Crystal Coffman.
