Will The Anti-Death Penalty Left Care?

Army sets date for its first execution since 1961

The Army has set a date for its first execution in nearly 50 years.

The military said Thursday that former North Carolina soldier Ronald A. Gray is to be executed Dec. 10 at the federal prison complex in Terre Haute (TEHR’-uh HOHT), Ind. He was convicted of multiple rapes and murders.

Army Secretary Pete Geren ordered that the former cook die by lethal injection. President Bush approved the execution in July.

Imagine if Gray was a cop killer or guy who started one of the most violent gangs in America. Or a terrorist. There would be candlelite vigils, protests, web pages, petitions. The ACLU would be suing. But, no, he is a soldier, so, eh, not worth their time.

And, yes, he should get the death penalty, just like anyone who did what Gray did.

    “May No Soldier Go Unloved”
    Come on Teach show some love for that soldier, don’t kill him
