Barbara Diann Allen was murdered in Napa, CA on 09/19/1994 by her ex-husband, Jerre Wayne Allen, CDC #K05360. Barbara was in the process of making plans to move to southern California to begin a wonderful new life closer to her family and grandchildren.
Stalked by Jerre Allen for more than a year, including using their 2 children to report her whereabouts (manipulating them with alcohol and drugs) before her death. Evidence of premeditation was very evident in this case. Jerre made strange explanations to his children at dinner on the night of the murder about how he would be "away" for 3-4 years. He had also threatened friends of Barbara's.
Barbara tried to make a call when she was attacked by Jerre, pushed and thrown to the floor and with one of his hand guns, (he had two guns) pushed the barrel into her chest. She kicked, screaming, and then he pulled the trigger, exploding her heart and lungs. Visualize Barbara lying on her back, in terror, his knee holding her down before he murdered her!
It was a very bloody crime scene where a neighbor at the condominium witnessed Jerre Allen leaving in Barbara's car. He fled to a Catholic church where he held two priests hostage for hours and admitted to killing Barbara to his ex-sister in-law and other persons during several phone calls. Jerre Allen was convicted of 1st degree murder on 04/04/1995 in Napa Valley, California (Case#CR24681).
Granting Jerre Allen parole contradicts the interests of public safety. He has been described as a sociopath and very narcissistic. He represents grave danger to others. Releasing him would diminish the memory of Barbara Diann Allen, dismiss the severity and impact of his crimes on family members and friends, his victims and endanger more innocent persons. His own children and grandchildren are in fear of their lives if he is released.
We understand that the state is under pressure to release offenders due to costs. However, Jerre Allen is a violent offender and unemployable. No responsible employer will expose customers or other employees to persons like Jerre. How do you escalate from 1st degree murder?! Releasing Jerre from prison would result in moving him from one form of public assistance to another while endangering anyone unlucky enough to cross his path. Relatives of his victim are in fear for their lives. It is our hope that you agree he should never be released and that the parole board will decide not to grant this murderer parole.

fuglyville: With 39, 35 and 28 executions for the last 3 years the DP trend is looking pretty good. If it continues this way, we may actually see the DP come to an end in a few years. Fear not, there's always other things to fight for.

Potassium_Pixie: Donald Trump is president. I hope he supports the DP and does whatever he can to keep it alive.

fuglyville: I hope the death penalty system dies peacefully as soon as possible, with or without his consent. The tide is definitely turning against it, but it needs to end - and it should have ended years ago.

whitediamonds: The DP is used criminally against innocents of society far too long & too many. They suffered death, not by peaceful means or methods. The DP needs as already stated to be kept alive.

nykkic: I think I'm still opposed to the DP .. but at the same time I can see why it might be necessary for certain crimes.. I don't have to like it but I've come to respect it
