Murder: the unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another.
Execution: the carrying out of a sentence of death on a condemned person or the killing of someone as a political act.
Did you notice that one word that makes these two acts different?
In case you missed it, there was a public official from Texas on the TV News the other night, reminding us that it’s okay to use a lethal injection to execute a man on death row – because it is legal.
The only murders we should be reading about are the ones in crime novels. Sadly, not everybody agrees with me.
Thanks for dropping by, Peter.
