An anti-capital punishment guy I can respect.....
For years I have had dealings with executions. At many, there have been protests. They march, they plead, they picket, etc, etc, etc. It is always the same core group that attend each execution and then you get a group that attends that has some attachment to the condemned, loved one friend, etc.
But any time a KKK member or the like is put to death there are no demonstrations by these people. They don't heavily oppose it, it just passes quietly. So I always ask are they against the death penalty or just particular executions.
I do believe many anti-captial punishment people are against particular executions but do have those times when people have committed such crimes that they just sink back, keep their mouth shut and let it happen.
Victim of 9/11 hate crime fights for attacker's life - US news - Crime & courts - msnbc.com
Days after the 9/11 terror attacks, 31-year old laborer Mark Stroman went on a shooting spree in the Dallas area. In a drug-fueled mission of revenge, he killed two South Asian immigrants and shot another — Rais Bhuiyan — in the face at close range, blinding him in one eye.
Shortly after his arrest, Stroman boasted of his role as "Arab Slayer."
Now, as Stroman faces imminent execution in Texas, an unlikely champion is fighting to save his life: Bhuiyan, who spent years recovering from the wounds he suffered in the attack.
"I've had many years to grow spiritually," said Bhuiyan, a Muslim who immigrated to the U.S. from Bangladesh and now works as technology professional in Dallas. "I'm trying to do my best not to allow the loss of another human life. I'll knock on every door possible."
Now don't get me wrong, I am all for capital punishment, even think it needs to be expanded but I do respect this guy for standing up for what he believes in the worst of situations.
