Jewish Guy Sentenced to Death By Anti-Semitic Judge: Take Action!
Guilt is not the issue in the case of Randy Halprin, who is scheduled to be executed in Texas on Oct. 10, which incidentally is also World Day Against the Death Penalty. We could talk about guilt, because everyone acknowledges that Halprin did not kill anyone. Instead the issue is that the judge who sentenced Halprin to death is a racist and an an anti-semite.

- As if the federal executions scheduled for December and January are not enough, now the Trump Administration wants to create an express lane for mass shooters. Who believes the threat of execution is going to deter a person who goes into their crime expecting, or at least willing, to be killed? Sigh. COPY & PASTE:
