What did Gilbert Postelle’s fiancé say?
Postelle’s fiancé, Jackie Thompson, read a letter at a press conference on February 1, 2022 and asked that Postelle’s life be spared.
“Gil is kind, loving, funny, loyal and has a heart of gold. He is amazing in more ways than one. Gilbert Postelle is somebody’s husband and I say husband because we don’t need to paper to prove our love.” said Thompson.
“He’s a father, a son, a brother and a friend. How can the system say it’s wrong to kill, yet they do it. Two wrongs don’t make a right.”
“Executing Gil is not going to bring those people back. It just creates more victims. He deserves a second chance at execution that affects more than one person.”
“The system says execution is justice for murder, but execution is murder. So where is our justice when the state murders the person we love and love?”
