On May 22, 2013, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper issued an executive order granting Nathan Dunlap a "temporary reprieve" from an execution that had been just three months away.  "It is a legitimate question whether we as a state should be taking lives," the order says. "Because the question is about the use of the death penalty itself, and not about Offender No. 89148, I have opted to grant a reprieve and not clemency in this case."
