A tale of two executions

Two men were executed on the same night earlier this week. One was in Texas, the other was in Georgia.

Both men did not know their victims. Both men admit to being involved in the initial altercation that ultimately led to death of the victim. Both men claim to not have been the person to actually commit the murders they were accused of.

One man became a cause celebre, and a reason to examine why we have a death penalty in the first place.

The other man became a reason to examine why we are so nice to people we execute.

I’m not sure what to make of it.

FTR, I think both men were guilty as sin and should’ve been shot on scene.
