Wiretap: ‘My wife and I forgive Karl Pierson’
Claire Davis’ father did a remarkable thing at a memorial for his 17-year-old daughter, who was shot that terrible day at Arapahoe High and died eight days later. He said he and his wife forgave the killer. He said the killer had a name and that we should all forgive him. “My wife and I forgive Karl Pierson for what he did,” Michel Davis said. “We would ask all of you here and all of you watching to forgive Karl Pierson. He didn’t know what he was doing.”
Michael Davis said Claire’s last words were to ask Pierson, “Oh my gosh, Karl, what are you doing?”
