Just watched Deadly Silence-[Possibly] Innocent Man On Death Row.

Testimony of one eyewitness. Probably a case study in how a man with limited life opportunities far more likely to do something as incredibly stupid and potentially harmful as getting involved in armed robbery. Obviously not a sociopath like the Virginia Tech shooter or so many in our war-crazed regime in Washington D.C.

The undoubtedly god-damned administrators rejecting clemency despite the insistence of jurors that they would not have condemned to death if they had had all the facts at the time cross-examining the juror "are you now against the death penalty"– the implication behind this is that if he had been against the death penalty at the time, he would not have been allowed on the jury.

I am against the death penalty, period, and find it very disturbing that this would disqualify me from sitting on a jury where a death sentence might result. But this short video by Molly Secours shows why government murder of people accused of murder is insane, even without this perversion of "a jury of one's peers".

Mostly from this comment by one of those self-righteous condemners, along the lines of 'if we had already decided, we wouldn't have this hearing. Some of us have been up 13 hours...' (One of the condemners had in fact apparently written her statement, complete with 'may god have mercy on you' or whatever, before the hearing.)

Human beings should not kill other human beings.

Period.
