Tampa (SchnittShow.com) – Within just a few short hours of surgery on his foot Monday, Aurora, CO shooting victim, Pierce O’Farrill tells nationally-syndicated radio host, Todd Schnitt, that he wants to talk to the shooter, James Holmes.
In the exclusive “Schnitt Show” interview, O’Farrill, who was shot three times, recalls the horror in vivid detail and says,“I would like to talk to him. I do forgive him.” As for the possibility of the death penalty in this case, O’Farrill says, “I don’t think he should have the death penalty – life in prison would be a more suitable sentence.”
O’Farrill, who was wounded by each of Holmes’ three weapons, also tells Schnitt that despite this tragedy, he is still a staunch proponent of the Second Amendment.
O’Farill was among the 58 victims who survived the shooting, and he appreciates the visit he got yesterday in the hospital from President Obama.
