    To the first part: thought they had a stay and got pissed when I found out he had been executed.

    Not exactly sure what you mean by the second part. Mr Vs response made it clear he considered the occasional innocent executed an acceptable risk. So I asked him if he would do the patriotic thing and provide the next sacrificial lamb.
    Wishing the same "justice" on those who merrily support what happened tonight is the same as my favorite benediction/curse.

    See how that works?
    Not at all, that one's just going to take a little more time and a little less tiredness than I got going on right now to reply to it

    That's funny. I support people getting what they deserve too.

    No books. No TV. No mail. No conversation with another human being. No eye contact. 100% of your nutritional needs met by exactly the same gruel, every day. SOLITARY. Until you die of natural causes.

    That hard enough for you?

    You forgot the very important "exactly". The entire statement pivots on it.

    You're forgetting that Perry is being pasted with an ugly brush for an execution in his state, so I'm betting tomorrow sometime a reporter's going to ask him about the Davis execution.

    So this one could have some staying power.

    Plainly stated, I don't know. I also don't know how you all are so certain that he didn't.

    Because that wasn't national news

    And most people don't oppose the death penalty because they don't like killing guilty people, atleast not me, it's the fact that innocent people will die, have died because of the death penalty. There is no maybe, it has happened, and it will happen again, we aren't perfect, and we will make mistakes. You can release a man from prison, you can't dig him up, and bring him back to life.

    Bringing the facts of the other case where a man was drug behind a truck, I'd say no, it's not enough. Interesting to note though, that if you really believe kicking back in a jail cell is a fate worse than death, then by advocating the DP, I'm actually the one who's showing mercy.
