Witness to Innocence


Another newspaper in #Tennessee rips the law to speed up executions there: “If Tennessee were to outlaw the #deathpenalty, the need for the extensive appeals would vanish. The crucial point is that the death penalty, once carried out, can’t be reversed. It’s too late then to say, ‘Oops.’ Future generations will likely see the injection gurney and the electric chair as the moral equivalent of hanging or the guillotine. They, too, belong in the history books.” http://tinyurl.com/kxoxdx3 (pic of Nashville ret. Methodist Bishop Melvin Talbert w/world’s most famous abolitionist nun)
