  •  Let's kill Gary Gilmore for Christmas (3+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Gary Gilmore was a habitual criminal with psychological problems. He killed two people in Utah at the end of his crime career. He is famous because he wanted to be executed.  He wanted to be shot by a firing squad.

    The scary part for me, and the point that makes this relevant, is the fact that hundreds of American volunteered to shoot Gary Gilmore. The people who volunteer for such vigilante duties want to kill somebody. Not a deer. Not a coyote. A person. They want to kill another human being. It is chilling to me.

    I apologize for the sound quality.

    It is possible to read the history of this country as one long struggle to extend the liberties established in our Constitution to everyone in America. - Molly Ivins
