Still Guilty

One of the staples of abolitionist lore is that we execute innocent people. Abolitionists squabble among themselves as to what the number is, although they largely coalesced around the Roger Keith Coleman innocence hoax as the star attraction.

Until it fell apart, that is.

Anyway, the current candidate is Cameron Todd Willingham, notwithstanding that his own lawyer attests to his guilt.

The latest attempt to bully Texas into reversing the jury's findings failed, proving to the Innocence Project "that the clemency system is completely broken in Texas."

More likely, it proves that after-the-fact "scientific evidence" adduced by those with an ideologically driven point of view still doesn't count as much as evidence produced in open court and tested by the adversarial process.
