Death Penalty Horrors
This post by Ed Brayton is about Clarence Thomas's dissent in the decision to grant Troy Davis an appeal, and in his dissent the question of guilt or innocence doesn't seem to matter. When we stand a chance of executing a man knowing there is a good chance that he is innocent, our criminal justice system is sorely lacking in justice.
