Governor Perry knowingly executed an innocent man now he stacks the deck as much as he can to cover it up!
As we discussed two days ago, Governor Perry knowingly hung an innocent man and then tried to cover it up. As it becomes more obvious that Willingham was innocent Perry stacks the deck to cover the truth as far as the law allows him too. First a recap! Governor Perry of Texas first to knowingly execute an innocent man Perry replaces panel members who wanted an investigation!
Perry executed the man based on unproven information and when the truth came out and an investigation was called for Perry dismissed the entire team saying their time was up. Gee it had nothing to do with the fact that they knew the fire was an accident not arson and Perry knowingly hung an innocent man? Nope not the entire team only three of the 7!
Perry abruptly removed three members of the Texas Forensic Science Commission -- including the commission's chairman just two days before they were to meet to review the evidence that Cameron Todd Willingham was innocent. The new chairman a prosecutor not a Defender who has now replaced a defense attorney on the commission canceled the hearing for the time being. Gee what a coincidence and in time to cover up before a reelection campaign!
Perry, who maintains that Willingham was guilty, defended the move by saying that their terms were up, so we replaced them. Nevertheless he said that the abruptness of their dismissal appears a bit suspicious. No you think? Then let them do this first unless you know you're guilty! The innocence project is right saying that it looks an awful lot like a governor who's interfering with a science commission because the science demonstrated that we've executed an innocent person. There was no arson it was an accidental fire!
I am an eye for an eye guy but especially in an instance like execution you have to "know" not think you know. The death penalty should only be used in extreme cases and this was not one of them. Look at the links and there are many more. It is obvious Perry knowingly executed an innocent man. Now the Governor fires the independent Chairman and two other members of this Commission right before they were going to prove he knowingly executed an innocent man. Again The innocence project is right saying It's like Nixon firing Archibald Cox to avoid turning over the Watergate tapes. We can not let him get away with this.
Now only a couple days later instead of begging forgiveness and killing himself the SOB deepens the cover up! This guy is a true Politician he actually says the truth will vindicate him. Once again the truth will never be known and we will never forgive and forget! Now he has replaced a 4th person out of a 7 member board. He has now set it up so he has a controlling majority of deciders in his favor. I am more livid than before and refuse to believe you can legally kill someone and get away with it. Why did they kill; him so fast? What did Willingham know? What is Perry hiding? Perry's office quiet on expert's arson report I am stunned!
