For a country that straps unfortunate felons onto a bench and injects poisons into his body ' and executes innocent ones(Troy Davis). or still refuses to release an innocent man (Leonard Peltier)after a lifetime in prison I find this consistent with its system of justice ..

My goodness these draconian laws need to go. This is a death sentence for a man this age. I must say I do fully agree with you Walter. We live in such a stupid Country, we have some States where it is legal to grow and have marijuana and a few miles away in another State a person will spend 10 years of his life behind bars. I so hope people wise up across this Nation SOON. We have been our own worst enemies.
