I'm not saying Ronald (Gray, not Reagan...) didn't do some very brutal and heinous crimes (both Gray and Reagan...)--far from it, it wouldn't be too far off the mark to call him more than a bit inhumane.
President Bush on Monday approved the execution of an Army private, administration officials said. It was the first time in over a half-century that a president has affirmed a death sentence for a member of the U.S. military.
With his signature from the Oval Office, Bush said yes to the military's request to execute Ronald A. Gray, said the officials, who revealed his decision only on grounds of anonymity. Gray had been convicted in connection with a spree of four murders and eight rapes in the Fayetteville, N.C., area over eight months in the late 1980s while stationed at Fort Bragg.
The death penalty was outlawed between 1972 and 1984, when President Reagan reinstated it.
But why is it okay for a government body to justify its own murders?
Could you be the one to pull the proverbial switch? Would you be the one?
Then... what makes you any better of a human being than Mr. Ronald Gray?
