Obama Loses a Supporter
Not because of anything Obama said or did, but because of what the supporter did
Before he died Wednesday evening, death row inmate Dale Leo Bishop apologized to his victim's family, thanked America and urged people to vote for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.
"For those who oppose the death penalty and want to see it end, our best bet is to vote for Barack Obama because his supporters have been working behind the scenes to end this practice," Bishop said.
Sounds like a swell fella. Why did they mercilessly execute this excellent Democrat, who was working on founding "Death Row Inmates for Obama"?
They try to make a big deal out of the fact that he did not personally kill the person whose death he was executed for. But:
Johnson hit Gentry over the head with a hammer, and Bishop grabbed him in a headlock and hit him, according to testimony. When Gentry jumped from the car and fled, Bishop ran after him and took him back to the car, where he was hit and kicked numerous times. Bishop acknowledged holding Gentry while Johnson struck him.
