California: More on the Cooper Case

The Daily Bulletin reports District Attorney Mike Ramos has "posted a harsh response on social media" to American Bar Association president, Paulette Brown, who supports clemency for Kevin Cooper. Says, Ramos:
“I am disgusted by the comments made by the president of the American Bar Association and the fact that they show no concern or respect for the victims and their families in this case ... Kevin Cooper committed the most horrendous crimes imaginable against the victims while they were in the sanctity of their home ... He killed a family and two little children, and left their family members to suffer a lifetime of pain,” 
Cooper was found guilty of the 1983 murders of Doug and Peggy Ryen, their daughter 10-year old daughter and an 11-year-old that was visiting. An 8-year old survived the attack. Brown, however, says there is evidence of bias and misconduct and a miscarriage of justice. Ramos calls it a "last-ditch effort at saving the life of a multiple murderer and apparently they didn’t bother to do their homework.” Furthermore, Ramos has "appealed multiple times to each the California Supreme Court and the U.S. Supreme Court, and each time our case gets stronger.”
