Default Florida Death Row

I am quoting from a freebie news/politics/entertainment rag called The Folio. "Never in the history of Florida has a white person been executed for killing a black person." Adds fuel to the fire how unfairly the states decide who dies and who lives huh?

Yes ... the whole system is stacked against the individual, even more so if s/he is black/poor/both.

Default A white killing a black

My uncle that is white killed a black man in a family bar and was executed in Old Sparky in 1957. My poor grandma had to witness it. The other man involved got life I think. My uncle was a WWII vet that wasn't home very long when this happened. It sucks that that happened.
