Death Penalty Appeals

Following in Brigitte Bardot's footsteps, John Irving and Stephen King have appealled the reported death sentence of a high school senior.

Their appeal has been taken under advisement, though apparently the decision has already been made.

I heard about this. What I thought was strange aobut it was that King and Irving made a public appeal. Who would've thought that they cared that much about a fictional character--and why, as authors themselves, would they purport to interfere with another author's artistic process? What gives?

(And, I know I'm totally overthinking the issue...)
