It's not forgive and forget
LOS ANGELES- Porn publisher Larry Flynt says he doesn't want the man who shot and paralyzed him executed for the crime.
Flynt says he'd love to take pliers and a pair of wire cutters to Joseph Paul Franklin, but Flynt says he doesn't believe in the death penalty.
Franklin is scheduled to be executed by lethal injection next month in Missouri.
He shot Flynt and killed five other people 25-years ago, targeting blacks, Jews and people like Flynt, who he believed promoted interracial relations.
Flynt says keeping Franklin locked in a prison cell for the rest of his life is greater punishment.
