昨日紹介したビデオの続きです。5月22日に予定されていた元殺人犯の死刑は、直前になって赦免となりました。死刑執行を見に行く予定でバスを待っていた Lindsay は、もう望みはないと思っていたようで、ぎりぎりになって赦免となったことに興奮しているのが伝わってきます。
Today was David Crow's execution day, and I was standing in the parking lot of the Georgia diagnositic prison, waiting for the bus to come and pick us up to witness the execution. And after full day of expecting that there was no chance in hell that clemency will be granted, about two hours before he was going to die, David Crow was removed from death row. His sentence was commuted, and he was granted clemency by the parol board. It was amazing. I got the chills. I was elated that a life has been saved. And I'm really excited to show you everything that happened after that. I'll have that all up for you on Tuesday. In the mean time, enjoy your Memorial Day weekend. And check out all the shows that we've put on the site since we've been in Georgia, cause it's a lot of them. Bye.
If a death sentence or prison sentence is commuted to a less serious punishment, it is changed to that punishment.（コウビルド英英辞典より）
If you are elated, you are extremely happy and excited because of something that has happened.
