  •  Didn't know spousal abuse was a capital offense.. (8+ / 0-)

    This is a classic case of a presumed guilt railroading by all parties involved.  You know this happened a lot in the past and that innocent men were executed as a result, but you'd figure it couldn't happen anymore.

    •  It's the same mindset (5+ / 0-)

      that assumes that if someone is in Gitmo, he must be a terrorist and therefore why should anyone object to having a terrorist be tortured? Cause being in Gitmo is proof ... being accused is proof. I wonder if these people understand the purpose of a trial. Or the concept of "innocent until proven guilty.

      You would think that all the iterations of CSI and Law and Order would have given them a clue that there could be confusing evidence and multiple theories of how a crime might occur and who could be guilty.

      We already have "death panels". They are called health insurance companies.

        Where a man was convicted of arson, however Grissom went back to look at it and proved it was an accident.  

        Maybe that one should be re-aired in the Texas market right about now.

          in the first place. One of those "ripped from the headlines" stories.
