Rolling accepts fate

RAIFORD FL

Danny Rolling is scheduled to be executed today at 6 p.m., more than 16 years after he killed five Gainesville college students in a murder spree that paralyzed the city in fear.

Attorney Baya Harrison said he expects the U.S. Supreme Court to reject a last-ditch appeal he filed for Rolling challenging the lethal injection process. Harrison said Rolling, 52, was resigned to the fact he was going to die.

"I think that he's depressed, I think he's realistic," Harrison said. "He's accepted what he can't prevent."

Rolling murdered five students over a four-day period as the University of Florida started the fall semester in August 1990. The families of the victims are running an advertisement Thursday in The Sun, thanking the community for its support.
"We hope you will remember August 1990 and the years that followed without any sense of community shame for what has happened here," the ad reads. "You turned a blemish into a rose."

The execution will take place at Florida State Prison near Raiford, about an hour's drive from Gainesville. The Florida Department of Transportation is suspending all roadwork on State Road 16 leading to the prison today in anticipation of heavy traffic for the execution.
