There’s quite the population on death row here in Texas, but it just takes one White Guy to take away something that all of the others before him, mostly not white, have had, at the least: a last meal.
The man who, along with three others, dragged a man to his death, ordered a lot of food and then refused it just before he was put to death. All of the other poor souls who have been executed — both guilty and not — have had the decency to ask for and then eat the last dinner they were served. However, because one white man, and presumed McCain and Bush voter, decided to make a point, every other person in his position in the future will not have the thing he decided would piss people off. And it did.
A simple solution to this would be life sentences. The solution taken was mass punishment all because of a spiteful petty white guy.
Way to go White Guys. You’ve made everything so great for all of us.
