Teresa Lewis Executed in Virginia
Teresa Lewis didn't pull the trigger. She confessed, pleaded guilty and cooperated with authorities. She had an IQ of 70, right on the border of mental retardation. She had no prior criminal record, and no prior history of violence. The triggermen in the murder got life without parole. Yet she was executed -- the first first female sentenced to death in Virginia since 1912.
The next time you hear a politician proclaim they are pro life, ask them to prove it by promising to vote to end the death penalty.
R.I.P: Our evolving standards of decency.
