Cory Maye May Live

The death penalty is barbaric. The death penalty administered to people who may have been innocent is even more barabic. The death penalty administered to people who committed absolutely no crime is a Stalinesque atrocity.

About five years ago, during a no-knock police raid of an apartment complex where one resident was suspected of drug possession, another resident, Cory Maye, shot a cop, thinking he was an intruder bursting into his home. When other officers yelled, “Police!”, he immediately disarmed.

For years, he was on death row, for no apparent reason other than the principle of law and order, which in its American form mandates that every black person be guilty even if proven innocent, and that there is no such thing as excessive police brutality or irresponsibility.

Fortunately, now there’s a temporary reprieve, in the form of a new sentencing trial. So instead of being murdered executed for being at the wrong place at the wrong time and of the wrong skin color, he may only be thrown to jail.

    The death penelty should be reserved for the worst offenders and should require proof beyond any doubt. There is no need to tolerate the presence of degenerates like Tim MacVeigh or serial killers like John Wayne Gacy.
    The problem is that some states like Virginia and Texas are entirely too free with its application. Nobody should shed a tear if Saddam Hussein were to be executed.

  2. Working with at no cost trial samples happens to be a very good choice for many, getting these is just not simply as easy. Without cost trial samples are frequently connected to filling up any online survey linked to the product or service as well as this company that result in a good barrier for many. This really is because that folks often do not wish to uncover their identification or maybe consumer information over any internet exclusively for getting hold of this sample or perhaps spam his or her mails with unnecessary e-mail messages coming from them companies regarding the most up-to-date offer or even deals. Buyers are likely to go out of their system in hunting for for free items which might be out there and once they must complete any review to realize the disappointing bargain in the end of it, this task grows into extremely frustrating. Additionally, posting consumer details like for example contact number will cause annoying cell phone calls, which unfortunately everyone wants to avoid.
