American Samizdat

Friday, June 18, 2010. *
And then there are the pins that represent participation in the execution of a condemned man.

But no pin will be issued to commemorate Ronnie Lee Gardner's execution, which is scheduled to occur June 18.

Instead, Corrections spokesman Steve Gehrke said, officials will create a special coin that will be presented to staff members who play any role in carrying out the execution.

"The staff preferred something a little more modern than the ribbons," Gehrke said. "Since people don't walk around displaying those anyway, we're switching to a coin."

If God has created us in his own image, we have more than reciprocated... So how is that worded on the coins, 'Gott mit uns'? or is it like these* or these :

*looking beyond the horizon, indeed.

Have you ever talked to one of these guys in person? I met one of the guys from Texas when I was in processing in Iraq and each of them has a sobering, hard job. The ribbons, and now the coins, are for a horrible job done well, not for glorification of a death.

Again, check your facts, leave the basement, and go *talk* to one of the men involved!

Sam, we've had a better relationship than that before. Why the evil all of a sudden?

Because, you seem in love with death. Or perhaps you have a virus or yet a malignant soul sickness.
Regardless of the labels, nomenclature, you seem to glorify in the moral superiority of someone infected with the death urge.
