U.S. to Resume Capital Punishment for Federal Inmates on Death Row

Texas executed tonight Larry Swearingen for the killing of 19-year-old Melissa Trotter.

He has maintained his innocence. His lawyer says bad science got him on death row.

His final words: “Lord forgive them. They don’t know what they are doing.”

What y'all think about the Rodney Reed case? He's scheduled to be murdered in a few weeks.

Why are Republicans going up against the 10 Commandments? The Bible says killing is bad. You can't call yourself Pro-Life and then kill a man

Rodney Reed is days away from execution, despite new evidence that could exonerate him.

Together we can save his life, but time is running out.

Tell Governor Abbott to stop the execution:
@J-Don you silent
