Hedrick Takes it Like a Man

I've been away at summer camp with the boy scouts...

Kudos to the gov for not standing in the way of the execution of Brandon Wayne Hedrick whose monstrous crimes were referenced in the post just below this one. And kudos to him for going out like a man, in the electric chair, instead of being put down like a dog by lethal injection.

I'm away now for a week to see if I become a better prosecutor by seeing what the feds know about it.

When I get back, I'll be taking the pompous blowhard to task for his lame attempt to debunk Josh Marquis' claim that the rate of conviction of innocent defendants is negligible. A preview: several high-profile, liberal-academy-and-MSM-peddled examples do not a systemic problem make. Like the ever-elusive search for the actually innocent executed inmate, the pro-criminal left will stop at nothing to tar a system that, for all the demands placed on it, performs admirably.
