I agree . They should not be able to keep going on this execution . How can you kill someone for a murder they did not commit. The actual killer is serving life .
dale acted out of depression and stupidity when he requested the death sentence. He regrets that now, he regrets that his friend died because of their actions. He is very remorseful and wants to live to get to know his children.
He has children that have not had a chance to know him yet .
How can anyone let this go on ?
And have him put to death ..when he did not KIll?
There are thousands of killers out there ... why sentence him next ? why ? when they know he didnt do it ?
It doesnt make sense ...
I am so distraught over this situation
This is a mans life they are planning on taking ... and for waht reasons actually ?
Let dale live ...
he wants to live
and so do his children & family
It just isnt fair
to kill a man that they know whouldnt be executed

I agree wit Carolina. Dale should not be executed. His children and family are the ones that will be hurt if he is. He has 3 boys who love him. He did not do what he is being executed for We need to stop all this stupidity. Let him live so his childre can have their father. He has told the family of the victim that he is sorry for what happened. The thing is he didn't do the killing another man did and he has life in prison. Does that seem fair???

Dale gave the first 3 blows to the victims head and helped pull him out of the drivers seat and then when Mark did get away and run Dale chased him down and drug him back and made him kneel execution style while he cheered Jessie on, now without knowing all the facts how can you make a decision? Dale ask for the death penalty, he said Mark did not deserve to die and he would not be dead if I had not done what I did, by his own admission he helped kill him!

He also beat his mom with the same hammer in Oct. of 98 before he killed Mark and in his confession he said that there were 10 other bodies the police would never find.

where did the people in the last two comments get their information. Dale did not hit Marcus the first three blows and he did not and I mean not ever beat his mother with a hammer. How can you say such a thing. Get your information straight before you go making statements for all the world to see. Dale is not and has never been the kind of person to take the life of any one or anything. He is a very confused and tormented person but he is not a killer which you know and the entire state of Mississippi know. I am so glad to nolonger live in such a state that will do this is someone who didn't commit a murder.

What parades as justice in this state and every other state in this country is anything but just. A third grader could come to the conclusion that a man who did not commit a murder should not get MORE punishment than the man who committed it. If this doesn't demonstrate the illogic that is rampant today in the "injustice system" then I don't know what does.

I guess you didn"t get my last comment.You stupid person or persons calling yourself turnabout need to get YOUR facts right. Dale never hit Mark wit any thing except his hand. He never drug him back. Mark walked back. Dale has NEVER hit his mother at all. I know _ I'm his mother. Dale has never killed any body. You evidently never heard his confession. I did!! He did not say he killed anybody!!!!!

well you see i met DAles mother at the rent trailer where she was tryingto get his clothes to help dale and jessie get away and she told mark's sister that dale had beat her with the same hammer and then showed the scars on her arms to the girl and said that dale's brother shot dale in the shoulder to get dale off of her. the arrest was in Oct. of 1998 and dale was on probation for this at the time he helped kill Mark, and I did read the confession and was in the courtroom when Dale said in his own words to Marks family that mark would not be dead if he had not did what he did! what about your other son George I guess dhe didnt kill Doug either? he is serving time right now for murdering a man with a hammer. I pray for your suffering as much as anyone but stop lying to yourself and maybe you will find peace for yourself.

Brenda,

I take it that you are the mother of Dale. If so I am very sorry for the lose that you are about to have to deal tomorrow. But you do not have any idea of the pain that the family has had to go through over the past 9 1/2 years. Mark didnít do anything to deserve to lose his life. He didnít get any last words, last phone calls to make piece with everyone or even request a last meal. His death was slow, painful and of the cruelest nature.

Now your son had a lot to do with his death and you know that. You shouldnít be spending your time typing on here trying to make stories up about what happened. Without Dale Mark would still be alive today. Dale might not have thrown the fatal blows but I didnít make any attempt to stop them either. If anyone is unclear about what happened just look it up.

You need to have some respect for the family of the victim. You also need to spend and enjoy what time you have to communicate with your son. He took another mans life and for that he is going to die; If not tomorrow then next week or next month or next year or some time in the near future. But the fact remains, he will pay for his sins.

Here is a source that I found. This might clear up a few things.

http://www.clarionledger.com/apps/pbcs.dll/ar...

Here are a few paragraphs from the article.

According to court records, Bishop, Gentry and other friends were out drinking when a man named Jessie Johnson accused Gentry of informing on Johnson's brother and getting him in trouble with the law. Johnson hit Gentry with a hammer and kicked him.

Bishop hit Gentry with his fists and kicked him. He also allegedly held the victim while Johnson beat him.

"The beating lasted long enough for Bishop to finish one beer, to ask for another person to hold Gentry, to go to the car to retrieve another (beer), and then come back," according to court records. "The beating was so severe that it was necessary for Bishop to dislodge the hammer from Gentry's throat."

You see you are believing what someone else said. At Dale's trial it was told that after he brought Mark back to the car and made him kneel down, he told Ricky Myhand to hol Mark. Dale then went and got a beer and sat on the hood and drank it. The one thing Dale did was go after Mark and bring him back. If he hadn't, Mark might be alive, but then again, Dale might have been there with Mark cause Jessie was waving the hammer at Dale and told him to go get him. I am sorry more than you can ever know for what happened to Mark and what his family has had to go through. But Dale did not kill him and killing Dale will not bring him back.What about Jessie? He got life without parole. He is the one who gets to live.

Now you see I am Dale's mother. He never hit me. I got the marks taking a hammer from him. It happened in Sept. not October. Dale's brother shot him to keep him away fromus. I was on the porch and Dale was in the driveway. I don't know who you are except probably some of Mark's family. I am truly sorry for what you all have had to go through. But you need to get you facts straight Dale was not on probation for that. He had never gone to trial. And he was not arrested, he turned himself in.About reading his confession, did I miss something?? It was never printed except for the members of the jury, and there was no mention if any more bodies. That is sick. Of course, He is mentally ill. As for hid brother George, I don't know where the name Doug came from. He is in prison for manslaughter, not murder. And he went and got help for the man he beat, but that wouldn't have happened if the man had left George's wife alone. He lived for 2 Days after the fight. So you have some of your facts wrong. As for me typing on here,I wouldn't feel the need to ,if you would stop.

You're all missing the point, the only sad thing about all this is that the primary killer is not going to die tomorrow TOO. And those of you morons who believe that the Brenda chatting here is the mother of the nut job dying tomorrow need to get a life, would you be visiting a chat room the night before your son was being fried?
Goldie Locks could write the comments supposedly written by the dudes mother, all published material. I'm outa here.

OK Brenda, you win. Now just tell me how you can be in Spring Garden, AL; Woodstock, AL; Dawsonville, GA; and who knows where else all within a period of 3 hrs? Perhaps there are several Brenda's claiming to be the mother. Wonder if the real one might just be in MS to at the least be there when poor little Dale is executed?

Brenda I do not really care who you are and this is not a quarrell of who knows what, the fact is the truth lies out on the old logging road and in dale and jessie head they both tell a different story of course since you know so much then you should know that there was more people there than Marks family when you showed the scars on your arm and introduced stoney Dales son to marks family who would be around 14 now is that right, quit calling people names that is just rude no one is stupid on here just curious. Jessie definately deserves to die for what he did to Mark, but that was the difference in 11 women on the jury and his mother pleading for his life, now I think ricky myhand and c. Rakestraw should have been charged in the case also. but then I think alot of people should have recieved more punishment than they have and manslaughter, murder, doug merchant still died as aq result of the blows suffered from George Bishop for whatever reason he did not have the right to take a mans life and if you have to use a hammer to whip someone's ass to prove a point then you are not much of a man you are something else that is not for me to judge but i think anyone can decide that. As for the other bodies in the confession that wass in there and so was "why did you go back and get the hammer out of Marks neck? and Dale replied, I never leave home without it, never know when I might need it.

Roy Bishop was the name stated to be Dale's real father,
