N.H. Court Hears Cop Killer's Death Penalty Appeal
November 12, 2012
New Hampshire's only death-row inmate will have his day in court when the state Supreme Court hears arguments pertaining to his sentence.
Michael Addison was sentenced to death for gunning down 35-year-old Manchester (N.H.) Police Officer Michael Briggs in 2006, when Briggs tried to arrest him on robbery charges.
The justices in Addison's case will be deliberating the death penalty for the first time in more than 50 years—deciding, among other things, whether Addison's sentence is just or was a product of passion or prejudice.

This shithead should've been dead a long time ago. Why is he even still around. He killed a cop he should die. This is just more waisted tax dollars that shouldn've even be an issue. These so-called judges are just dragging their feet on this. For Godsake give this family some closure. Hearing stuff like this just pisses me off cause it's a no brainer. Just send his ass here to TEXAS, and we'll take care of the problem for you. Since between all of you (judges) you all seem to share a brain and no backbone!!! Deliberation my ass!!! This is pathetic!!!
