  1. i’m shocked too—it was all circumstantial

    i’m also waaaaay more worried about the 2nd degree charge on the fetus

    this was a big win for the christian coalition and anti-abortion groups—that jury just convicted someone for the murder of an unborn fetus as if it were fully alive

  3. As much as it all looked bad, I can never get over how people can get sentenced to death (WTF?!) when something isn;t crystal clear. Not beyond a reasonable doubt, crystal clear for godsake. At least when you imprison someone, that mistake can be corrected somewhat later on. Like that guy that just got out of jail after 18 years because dna evidence finaly made available proved him to be not guilty of raping and murdering his wife. Can you imagine dealing grief of that proportion and going to jail at the same time? My god this country has messed up justice system.

  4. While I am anti-death penalty and therefore, agree with what you’re saying about the shock that comes with sentencing someone to death, I have trouble arguing with those who are anti-abortion and usually don’t like to bring up the fact that I am pro-choice, yet anti death penalty.
    Given that, it’s hard for me to say what I just said above and then sit here and say I think it’s wrong for someone to be put to death. Even though that’s exactly what how I feel.

    Not sure if that makes any sense whatsoever. I’m tip-toeing for a reason, you might say.
