Obama pleading for the life of a Mexican national who raped and murdered within American borders. NF. Governor Rick Perry executing him anyway. TFM.

      yes actually anyone who has any idea of how that particular issue of law worked was with Obama (not saying im one of those people). Rick Perry loves America so much he doesnt even want to be a part of it, sounds like a great candidate for president.

      the law is still being debated, it hasn’t passed yet. There were considering the execution a breaking of the verbal treaty because the law is expected to pass.
      “”Our task is to rule on what the law is, not what it might eventually be,” the majority said.”

      From the WSJ:

      “We are doubtful that it is ever appropriate to stay a lower court judgment in light of unenacted legislation. Our task is to rule on what the law is, not what it might eventually be,” the court said.

      Looks like the people who knew the law (i.e. The U.S. Supreme Court), made the final decision.

      ^^Yes but Rick Perry as the governor had the right to delay the execution and he didn’t so it was also his decision.

      There’s no such thing as “international law”. Anyone who tells you otherwise is a communist.

      Florida has the 4th most executions in the US (obviously a mile behind Texas) and the second most amount of inmates on death row. We’re no fucking Michigan.

      We’re in fourth though. We don’t even make the medal count. The politics behind this shit is such a waste of taxpayer money. Forget the insanity or mentally ill plea. You murder and rape, none of this years on death row. You get 20 minutes to say your goodbyes and let’s get this over with.

    Despite his deathbed apology, he’ll have to live with the consequences. Wait no he won’t

    “Leal Garcia, who had lived in the United States since he was an infant, was convicted of raping a 16-year-old girl and bludgeoning her to death with a piece of asphalt in 1994.”

    17 years ago? its a crime he got to live so long

    “In a last statement provided by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, Leal Garcia apologized to the victim’s family and asked for their forgiveness.”

    tough shit, fucker

    “Texas executes more criminals than any other U.S. state. That has long caused friction with Mexico, which has no death penalty. In 2002, Texas executed Mexican citizen Javier Suarez Medina over the objections of President Vicente Fox.

    In 2008, the case of Jose Medellin, a Mexican citizen convicted of a rape and murder in Texas, went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court on the issue of whether he was improperly denied consular assistance. He too was executed.”

    …and so many people were against this, what kind of message do you want to send to criminals? keep up the good work, Texas
