I am in Canada, and have no idea what this case is all about, but I am going to google it. My thoughts are with the family and friends of the man though because I DO NOT believe in the death penelty in any situation. One question though….Why if you are saying he is not guilty, and was wrongfully convicted are you saying he should live out the rest of his scentence in prison? Shouldn’t he be a free man if he is innocent??

MSNBC has reported that the Supreme Court denied the stay of execution. This is not going to be good. Sad to say, but I expect rioting.

ETA: I’m slow…

@MrsStrawberry24:

Absolutely nothing, you are right. Just stating a worry as it seems to be the knee-jerk reaction when emotions run high in a situation like this.

had to explain to my 5 year old child that another mother will never get to hug her son like im hugging you right now.

does your son is need that emotional baggage???   and by memory the police officer who was the victim and killed was a father himself so my sympathies to his family on this day

@Mrs Sarah McK: Powerful quotes.

My heart is extremely heavy. There simply wasn’t enough solid evidence to execute this man. May his family find comfort and healing, and may he rest in peace.
