The state of Texas is well known for having one of the harshest justice systems in the country, but that doesn’t make the precedent being set by Rick Perry any less astonishing.
Likely presidential hopeful Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) oversaw his 235th execution as governor yesterday — the most of any modern governor by far, and nearly half of those conducted in Texas since the death penalty went into effect in 1976. His predecessor, former President George W. Bush, used to hold the dubious distinction, having presided over 152 state killings during his five years in office.
235 executions? What would Jesus do?
Because God apparently told Rick Perry to run for president, can we also infer that God told him to execute 235 people?
Would Rick Perry’s execution of the economy, if he became president, also surpass the gruesome record left behind by George Bush?
Rick Perry is George Bush 2.0
