I support capital punishment for every possible reason but one – the inevitability of executing the innocent. And that’s all I need to oppose it on principle.
But I’m not going to raise a huge fuss about this particular execution:
BREAKING: Texas has executed John William King, a white supremacist who orchestrated the 1998 dragging death of James Byrd Jr., one of the most gruesome hate crimes in U.S. history. https://t.co/conLbMnmzt— The Associated Press (@AP) April 25, 2019
It’s amazing how little actual white supremacy there’s been in the wild in the past 20-odd years, other than the gaslight-y stuff the media’s promoting – that’s the only word for it – these days.
