"Hangin' John" Ashcroft

If the prospect of war in Iraq in the name of "the New American Century" doesn't put you off your lunch, TalkLeft's got a bit about John Ashcroft's insistence on the death penalty at the expense of the autonomy of local prosecutors.


There are two disturbing issues here. One is that John Ashcroft insists on the over-use of the death penalty even though it is statistically unfair to minorities. The other disturbing issue is that John Ashcroft feels his ability to make these decisions is better than local prosecutors who better understand the case.
