It's Time to End the Death Penalty
(Jan. 29, 2017)



Thanks for taking the time out to read and leave a comment concerning the death penalty.

This is nothing but another form of legalized genocide perpetuated against low income defendants from the black and brown communities inside Amerika. On April 20, 2017, the state officials in Arkansas went on a murder spree of eight human beings because the drug, midazolam, used in executions was about to expire. These actions represent incontrovertible evidence that the death penalty is also used to further political careers, and it's not about seeking justice as in the argument advanced by the majority of death penalty supporters. And when you get right down to the truth, the victims and their loved ones are nothing more than pawns in the game to these officials directly and indirectly responsible with securing a death sentence and carrying out that sentence.

Accordingly, we all must make our disapproval of the death penalty known to the public and elected officials across the country. Only we can cause the change that need to take place in those remaining states that will still allow the death penalty to be imposed.

"Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."
