Irvine is right Snowlock, your level of condescension is really over the top and only likely to breed ill will towards you (not to mention it doesn't help your argument). I can see where a couple other posters have made unnecessarily snide remarks in this thread, and am asking everyone to stay calm and civil, but you in particular are really straying out of line here.

i'm just really torn apart by this. people know he is not guilty of killing anyone. why does he have to die? the guy that shot and killed him was already executed.

he hasn't even ever touched his daughter. not a hug, not a kiss. and he didn't do anything!!!!!

Sounds like a very sad mess: "...Kenneth Foster Jr. is scheduled to be executed in Texas later this month for the 1997 murder of Michael LaHood, though everybody — even prosecutors — concede that Foster was at the scene of the crime, but did not pull the trigger...."


O Canada.

I really can't get my head around any of the thinking for sentencing this man to death, it just isn't moral or even logical.

So should we make robbery punishable by death for everyone, or just for black people?

only if we already know that they're scumbags and would probably kill someone in the future.

"... never EVER take a life!" to quote a great man. And this goes both ways, for the criminal and the government.

I don't like pot and didn't read Kafka, yet. But I've once seen "The Metamorphosis" in a tiny theater in my former hometown, if that counts.

Gotcha. Adding "scumbaggery" to the list of capital offenses.

From what I've read about this he's apparently exhausted all of his appeals, so his only hope is a stay/pardon from the governor (not likely). I believe his date is August 30.

Is there a limit to how many stays one can get? He was granted a stay last month.

Not sure. I don't think so, but that's a total guess.
