Martin Luther King Jr. abhorred the death penalty. Executing Black men on his birthday would dishonor him.
I would be lax in my scrutiny of rumps last days if I failed to note that one of rump's final wishes did not happen. He dearly wanted his base to remember his administration executed more federal prisoners than any prez in many years, and as a misogynist who executed the only women in many year. That will teach those uppity women!
He had hoped to give a special King birthday present to America on King's birthday by executing a black man, but it just didn't happen. The actual birthday was Friday, and a late appeal delayed the execution till Saturday. If only Barr had stayed around just a little longer this tragedy might have been averted.
Purrhaps we should take this topic elsewhere for discussion, but I felt that mentioning here was appropriate for MLK Day.
