If Government is so incompetent, why trust it with death?
When I was being brought up Republican, I was always told that privatization was a Good Thing because government was bloated, inefficient, and incompetent. (Well crap, it is when you let Jack Abramoff run contracting!) Well, if Government is so incompetent, what in the great green gobs of greasy grimy gopher guts makes Republicans think it should be entrusted with killing people?
Robert Clark has been freed after spending 24 years wrongfully imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit. Sucks bad enough for him (can you believe he's not angry?), but when you kill your prisoners, you can't free them when you find out you were wrong.
Who votes for having The Innocence Project come speak to the group? I'd say let's invite Mr. Clark, but the man has some family time to catch up on.
