Thread Name: Steve Earle sees a friend killed
Subject: RE: Steve Earle sees a friend killed
the word "incongruous" struck home.....From a conversation recently with a friend (older, attorney, from Arizona, staunch Republican and Bush supporter) and I quote "the death penalty only applies when you're poor, black or Hispanic. Am I in favour of the death penalty? No! No one should expect the State to do something they cannot, in good conscience, do themselves." I believe that a majority of American citizens from Texas or elsewhere could not have pulled that switch.
