In a case that hits close to home, if your home is in NC, Alan Gell provides the best reason yet for a death row moratorium. Alan Gell was set up for a murder he did not commit by two 15-year old girls, who were making deals with the prosecutor.
The prosecutors had Gell arrested, tried, and sentenced to death. All the while, they hid evidence that GELL WAS IN PRISON DURING THE MURDER!!!
What kind of evil bastard does this to another human?
Maybe Gell wasn't an angel, but he sure as heck didn't deserve to be killed for a crime he didn't commit.
God's Righteous Judgment
1You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge the other, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things. 2Now we know that God's judgment against those who do such things is based on truth. 3So when you, a mere man, pass judgment on them and yet do the same things, do you think you will escape God's judgment?
Is the death penalty an appropriate penalty? Perhaps. Perhaps there are cases. Those who would use the Bible as their law see many cases where Death is appropriate, as would be the cutting off of hands, the plucking of eyes, etc. Many in our country have come to see the Death Penalty as cruel and unusual punishment. Others have merely come to see it as a crime itself, as is the case for Alan Gell. Where are the prosecutors who lied and sent Alan Gell to die an innocent man in the throughs of agony? They have been "reprimanded" by the State Bar. OOOooooooh, I'll bet their wrists hurt.
Death to an innocent man = A slap on the wrist
Yeah, that's fair.
