Just to follow up on this entry about Trump scheduling five executions in his final days in office, I just came across this utterly chilling BBC article. “As President Donald Trump’s days in the White House wane, his administration is racing through a string of federal executions. Five executions are scheduled before President-elect Joe Biden’s 20 January inauguration – breaking with an 130-year-old precedent of pausing executions amid a presidential transition.” To put that another way, Trump is obviously using his last vestiges of power to lash out against what he feels as the injustice of losing the election by sending five people to there deaths. I defy anyone to read that and not feel sickened by such a shallow, childish, horrific act. How can anyone be so spiteful?
