Guilty vs. Innocent

CAL THOMAS COMMENTTARY APRIL 12, 2017

         ARKANSAS IS RUSHING TO EXECUTE EIGHT MEN ON DEATH ROW BEFORE IT RUNS OUT OF A CHEMICAL USED FOR LETHAL INJECTIONS, WHICH THE SUPPLIER HAS REFUSED TO RENEW.

         THESE ARE VERY BAD MEN WHO COMMITTED VERY BAD CRIMES. ONE, DON DAVIS, SHOT A GRANDMOTHER IN THE BACK OF HER HEAD DURING A HOME ROBBERY, EVEN THOUGH SHE ACCEDED TO ALL OF HIS DEMANDS. ANOTHER, BRUCE EARL WARD, WHO HAS BEEN ON DEATH ROW SINCE 1990, WAS CONVICTED OF STRANGLING AN 18-YEAR-OLD GIRL AT A CONVENIENCE STORE WHERE SHE WORKD. WARD HAD DRIVEN AROUND TOWN LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO MURDER.

         THE LEFT IS UPSET BY THE PROSPECT OF SO MANY EXECUTIONS OVER SO SHORT A TIME, BUT IT HAS NO MORAL BASE TO STAND ON, NOT WHEN IT REFUSES TO OPPOSE THE KILLING OF THE UNBORN, WHO ARE WIPED OUT AT FAR GREATER NUMBERS EACH DAY.

         IF THEY BELIEVE IN EVOLUTION, AS SECULAR PROGRESSIVES DO, ON WHAT MORAL BASIS CAN THEY OPPOSE CAPITAL PUNISHMENT FOR THE GUILTY, YET FAVOR IT FOR THE INNOCENT?

         THESE MURDERERS AND RAPISTS ARE GETTING JUSTICE AND JUST PUNISHMENT FOR THE LIVES THEY HAVE TAKEN AND THE FAMILIES THEY HAVE RUINED. I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
