• Kim Kardashian cited five reasons as to why Brandon Bernard should be awarded clemency
  • Bernard was 18 when the crime was committed
  • Kardashian also urged President Donald Trump to stay Bernard’s execution

Kim Kardashian took to Twitter on Wednesday to cite five reasons as to why Brandon Bernard should be awarded clemency for a crime he committed when he was 18.

Kardashian in a previous tweet had urged President Donald Trump to stay Bernard’s execution.

The now 40-year-old Bernard had received the death sentence for being an accomplice in the murders of Todd and Stacie Bagley during a carjacking on a Texas military reservation in 1999, CBS News reported.

The “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star said she was broken-hearted about the impending execution and wrote: "#BrandonBernard should not be executed: (1) He was 18 at the time; (2) He was not the shooter; (3) The prosecutor and 5 of the jurors now support clemency; (4) He’s spent decades in prison w/out a write-up, helping at-risk youth; and (5) There’s bipartisan support for his commutation."

Brett L. Tolman, former U.S. attorney and a government reformer, came out in support of Kardashian and stated additional facts explaining why the “KUWTK” star was right.

“We should [be] refuse to ever apply the death penalty to nearly juvenile “followers” who do not kill the victim,” Tolman wrote in conclusion.

He also highlighted that the “transformative rehabilitation” in Bernard and his contribution to the well-being of his family. He added the killer had been executed and explained that life in prison as a consequence for Bernard was not “soft on crime.”

"Brandon hasn’t just been a model person in custody, he has come closer to God and family," he mentioned.

Not everyone agreed with Kardashian. A Twitter user replied to the 40-year-old star's tweet, saying even though the couple was shot, the wife was still alive when Bernard set the car on fire. However, a medical examiner who was hired by the defense found that Stacie was dead before the car was set on fire, CBS News reported.
