Christopher Thomas Johnson Executed


Christopher Thomas Johnson, a killer discussed here, was executed tonight in Alabama.

His crime was that, in order to get revenge on his wife and to avoid having to pay child support, he killed his six month-old son by beating and suffocating him.  The evidence showed that he struck the child not fewer than 85 times.

The sheer evil of something like this is beyond my capacity to describe.  I notice that the crowd that was raising the roof about Troy Davis  --  to make the case that the death penalty should never be imposed  -- is notably quiet tonight.  I  would like to ascribe this  to an embryonic sense of decency, but more likely it's just because they're shrewd enough to shut up.
