Don't mess with Texas
 
http://news.yahoo.com/rick-perry-vs-...173200158.html


"In respect to the discussion of international law, as mentioned by the Guardian, the Leal case is a noteworthy aberration: Humberto Leal, due to his status as a permanent occupant of the United States, should not have been given an additional avenue of legal support beyond that of the public defender, whose services are the only ones guaranteed by law to American citizens. The fact that Leal was an illegal immigrant, and therefore technically a Mexican national, should not have given him the option of extra legal assistance. He wished to be a permanent occupant of the United States...and should have to accept the guaranteed legal defenses thereof."

Obama is just a grandstanding idiot.........I'm so ready for him to be voted out!

Were you a Bush supporter? He did pretty much the same thing back in '05. Obama was in the right to try and stop this... or to at least appear as though he wanted it stopped. It was a breach of international law... which may not seem like a big deal until it's an American citizen executed somewhere else.
The biased article you linked to makes a strong case for why it was done... and I get that Gov. Perry wants to be seen as a Texas Bada%*... but it doesn't change the fact that laws were broken.
With all that said, I'm not upset at all that the sick SOB is dead.

Memo to American Citizens in Foreign Countries: when in a country illegally, don't rape then murder a 16 year old and you don't need to worry about being executed. Screw international law. The US rightfully isn't a member of the International Criminal Court (ICC) and our own laws trump international law.

This vermin yelling "Viva Mexico" while the drugs were being injected more than validates him getting the needle in my book. Good riddance and we will gladly send his corpse back to Mexico so he doesn't ***** our soil.

I'm ready for Obama to be voted out as well. Too bad the GOP can't find anyone worthy of the job.

Hey man, I wish it were that simple.
