      The Albany-Dougherty and Terrell County branches of the NAACP held a rally in downtown Albany Friday.

      They were rallying to let the community know their stance on the issue regarding Warren Lee Hill and the death penalty.

      Edward DuBose, the state NAACP president, says the NAACP is against executing Warren Lee Hill; mainly because they say he has mental health disabilities that are being disregarded.

      DuBose says inmates with mental health disabilities more often than not aren't being properly taken care of and Hill is one of those. Dubose admits that Hill did do something wrong, but he says he deserves life with no parole rather than the death penalty.
